Ms. Anderson manages to catch the illusive spark of personality that breathes life into her heroine, Gayle. She is witty, bright, and vividly written. Tyler Morgan is sexy, successful, and certainly fantasy material. The one complaint this reviewer found with the novella was that it is told strictly from Gayle’s point of view. The reader is never allowed to see things from
Tyler’s perspective. It creates a sharp contrast between the two characters in terms of vivacity.
Overall, this reviewer found TORT AND RETORT a well-written diversion from the day. The characters are easy on the senses and incredibly personable. The romance sizzles between them. The sex scenes fairly melted the poor Sony Reader. The story is a wonderful lark on the take of inner-office romances almost every woman can relate to.
