Mad Sea by K. Webster

Motorcycles and the ocean are my only loves.
Until Hali.
Every Sunday, I exchange my mancard for a punch on my pink frozen yogurt card.
Just to see her.
This is what stalkers do, you see.
I’ll do whatever it takes to catch one tiny glimpse of her bright smile—a smile she shines upon me, even if only for a few brief moments—to light up my usually dark, lonely world.
Hello, my name is Madden Finn.
And I’m in love with a girl who doesn’t even know my name.

***Mad Sea was originally created as a story for an anthology. There were size constraints which explains the short length of this story. Because of this, the story is sweet, to the point, and all kinds of instalove. If you’re looking for a quick, lovable read that is quite outside your normal reading zone, then you’re going to love this.***

4.5 out of 5 Stars

Because this is by K. Webster, I was expecting something dark, violent, and extremely erotic. But I was completely wrong. It's still scorching hot, but Mad Sea is definitely one of her tamer stories. And I still loved everything about this novella.

Madden is a tough guy. He is a leader of a motorcycle group that deals in drugs, weapons, and other crimes. Everyone thinks he's fearless and ruthless, but underneath it all he has a soft spot.

Hali works in an ice cream shop. She notices Madden coming into the store often. When she agrees on a date, she loves how he makes her feel normal. But there are some serious secrets that they have to overcome.

Although this is a novella, the story feels complete from the beginning to end. K. Webster has tremendous writing skills to give readers this sense of wholeness in only a few chapters.
