Alexis and Stacia say…
We decided to read and review Tin Man’s Dance by MK Schiller from this anthology, because we have loved everything from MK thus far.
Usually with short stories its hard to get into the story or really feel the love between the characters, since the story has to move so quickly. But with Tin Man’s Dance or maybe it’s just the magic of MK Schiller’s writing, you can feel the connection between the main characters almost from the beginning. Plus MK did an amazing job with the military aspect of the story- as the wife of a Marine, Stacia knows a little something about this subject and felt like she nailed it.
“Sometimes you find trouble, and sometimes you find troubled, it takes a smart woman to know the difference.”
Lilly Franklin wasn’t looking for love. She had big dreams for herself with a career in dance; it wasn’t until she met former Marine James “Hutch” Hutchinson that everything changed.
Hutch was just trying to just blend into college life, after an injury forced him to leave the Corps. Woman were the last thing on his mind but after seeing Lilly dance, his heart begins to “beat” for the first time in a long time.
“I didn’t want to be plagued by the past or think about the bleak future. I wanted to drown in the present with Lilly Franklin.”
The orchestrated meeting between them brought a smile to both of our faces and made us swoon hard for Hutch. How could you not want a guy who put so much energy into meeting the one girl who has brought life back into him?You can tell right off the bat that these two are perfect for each other and they chemistry is palpable. Their first night together was beautiful and brought both of their insecurities to the forefront.
These two have a shortened amount of time together and live their time to the fullest. The Tin Man’s Dance shows you that fairy tales really do happen! We both really enjoyed this story and recommend it. But…as we are both super greedy we wished we could have even more of Hutch and Lilly.
