    1. I loved the setting of this little gem of a story. I have only done very tame river rafting, but this story made me want to do some more serious river rafting. And it's a lovely love story too.

    2. This was a very short book, but definitely worth the 99 cents.The romance was sweet, and the setting was fun. You have the usual clueless main character who isn't picking up at all on the fact that her love interest is totally into her as well. But it's saved by the truth or dare incident. Who doesn't love a good game of truth or dare?The writing is well done, and i think this book could easily have been made into a longer story.Overall, i recommend it for a short read that's pleasant and not to [...]

    3. Some Kind of River is one of those very sweet and real stories that make you feel at home and comfortable. Both Dez and Mel, plus the secondary characters are all down to earth, fun characters whom I could really relate to. Especially Dez. It’s not a flashy story, nor is it erotically charged, although there are some very erotic moments; it’s just kind of like being wrapped up in a warm blanket on a cold day in how Dez and Mel relate.Dez and Mel have been rafting buddies for years. They see [...]

    4. I enjoyed this story, it was quick, but good, good romance, with a light mood.Both Dez than Mel are sporty girls, very much alike, and maybe that is the reason why they aren’t together: following the rule that opposites attract, they have been both in relationship with women who don’t understand their love for outdoor living. Dez and Mel wait the whole year for the summer when they can move near the river and spend their days camping and rafting. They share stories at the firecamp, talk abou [...]

    5. It's really more of a 3.5 stars story.Dez (the narrator of the story) and Mel are two self-professed "river rats" who live to traverse various rivers in the summer. Dez has a crush on Mel, but she's pretty sure that Mel doesn't feel the same way, even though Mel is throwing off some very obvious hints in Dez's direction. Dez remains clueless for most of the story. And that is why this isn't a four star book, because the writing is really good and the characters are well developed considering the [...]

    6. E-book short fiction. For a quick, light read, you simply can't do any better than this. Truly realistic and engaging characters, people you wish you knew, and Andi Marquette makes you feel as though you do. The setting, among a bunch of whitewater paddlers, couldn't be more authentic, either. Every event in this little gem seems to ring true. The agonizing pacing of the romance creates a delicious tension. And, the love-making? Let's just say its rare when a writer can so clearly convey that it [...]

    7. A sweet romance of two good friends falling for each other; neither wants to jeopardise their friendship by making a play for the other. This could be trite and frustrating for the reader, but pleasingly Marquette minimises the drama and directs the players along the path of true love and happy ever after.

    8. What a cute little story. I really liked it but as usual Andi's stories are always way too short ;) I would love to read more, no, I am thirsting for more. Dear Andi, I beg you here and now, pretty please, give us more of your longer stories ;) They are so awesome and over way too soon.

    9. Short f/f story featuring river rafting guides trying to decide if they want to risk their friendship by becoming lovers. Liked the writing, would read another by author.

    10. I bought this on (different cover and publisher) and really enjoyed it. Sweet romance between two outdoorsy kayak girls. I think I'll write a longer review soon.

    11. Fun bit of romance in a different setting. Like all Andi's stories - very well written - great characters and believable settings.
