Review: Take the Leap by Derek Ryans

28601049Take the Leap: A Collection of Short Stories by Derek Ryans

Published December 31st 2015

If two lost souls were destined to meet, how does it take before fate steps in?
Ethan Winston makes an attempt to run away from his abusive father and finds himself in the streets, left with alcohol to keep him company. A stranger shows up one day with a guitar and a sign that reads, “Love, Music, Save the World,” and he watches her for 58 days. Explore the possibilities of love and destiny in these three short stories:

– 58 Days
– Shut Up and Kiss Me
– Love was in the Lost and Found


I really enjoy short stories so I was really excited to read Take the Leap. There’s three short stories in this collection. My favorite one was 58 Days. All three stories were really nicely written and and cute concepts of love and destiny. I think maybe the stories could have been a bit more fleshed out. They did feel a little bit flat at times. But overall, I did really enjoy this collection.



A copy of this book was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review
