For Internal Use Only by Cari Kamm @CariKamm #review


InternalUseOnly_cover_9.17.12

 I’m thinking lately I get books too long or too short. This was long. Usually I gobble up the long ones. This was a solid good read. Yes it was pretty clean, I have also been reading too much smut. This was a change in that respect. What I admit is I miss the smut. 

 The overall joining of friends and the premise was great. Chloe and her friends doing a book club, each searching for something was enjoyable. The ideal star of the story is Chloe Kassidy and trying to find love. Her career is off kilter and so is the same for her love life. She is a photographer who is invited to an exclusive art exhibit entitled “Love Through Light”. This is something to put her on the “map” so to speak. 

Her friends were a high point, as well as being shown at a prestigious gallery. The questions arise about love in both settings. Her inner circle is a burned and hurt girl, a married one and of course the single Mom. There are a few worthy scenes between the friends. 

 As for the disconnect, I sort of did not get Mary sending an email; “I dont know you but, you would be perfect for my boss” So here is an email chain between Christoph, a Swedish diplomat, also a writer, and Chloe. The relationship was missing something for me, and I don’t know exactly what. I really think some editing and additions of a love scene or two with  purpose would have set it apart.
