Willow’s Cry is a magical story by Beverly Ovalle. It is a very erotic novella- the story is both sweet and steamy. It is well written, with an almost lyrical feel to the writing. Ms. Ovalle is a ‘new-to-me’ author, but after reading this book I will definitely be looking for more of her work to read. This story is a little different from some of the others in the same genre- Fantasy/paranormal/romance- it was easy to lose myself in the story and I was enchanted by it. The characters are very endearing, and I became invested in them and their story.
Alex and Willow are wonderful characters, who have their own unique qualities- I don’t want to spoil the story by giving away too much- you really should discover all the surprising details for yourself- but suffice to say their uniqueness is what brings them together, along with a twist of fate (and Mother Nature).
I loved all the surprising revelations through the story. They are very creative and clever. Ms. Ovalle has crafted a wonderful world in which to set her story- I loved all the unique touches and her scene setting, from the description of the storm, to the trees, the glade, the water sprites, mother nature, and so much more…
The story was so delightful, but with a spicy undertone that flowed through the whole book. There were funny scenes, emotional moments, as well as some touching and tender sections. I would like to have had a little more in-depth story, have had more explanation of the ‘lore’, backstories etc. But, I still really enjoyed this read even without it being fully in-depth, it was still a really great read. I am looking forward to reading more from Ms. Ovalle in the future.
Thank you, Ms. Ovalle!
