Off the Record is a collection of three short stories–“The Internship”, “The Overachiever”, and “After Hours”–featuring journalists and interns. After reading three of her novel-length stories, these didn’t do much for me. They weren’t bad, but I think she does better when her stories have room to breathe. Or perhaps I’m just greedy and only want more of her work to indulge in.
I don’t have much to say about the stories, though I think they are worth the read, but that doesn’t mean I don have anything to say at all.
Kay Decker also writes under the name Kay Simone (You’re the One That I Want, One Giant Leap, and The Aftermath). Under Decker she wrote she also wrote a couple other things that I don’t know if I’m going to get into; one is M/F and I’m really not interested, and the other one is M/M, a politician and a bodyguard. At the end of the third story in that series there’s double penetration. Don’t know how I feel about that. Not that I’ve never encountered it, but I never knew going in and I think I’d rather be surprised by that kind of thing… That seems strange, doesn’t it?
I thought overlap/inspiration was really cute.
