Hissed as a Newt is the second book off the With A Kick series shared by Sue Brown with Clare London. Now, the story started when David stumbled upon a drunken clown as he walks to With A Kick, his favorite ice-cream shop. He was about to turn a blind eye when he overheard the clown mumbling about his cheating boyfriend. For reasons unknown, David decided to take the clown with him inside With A Kick where he finally met Stan underneath the tear-streaked make-up. Over ice-cream, they shared each of their woes and found out they actually have a lot to talk about.
I just really loved how cute the whole setting of the story was. The idea of With A Kick was terrific and it was a great backdrop to David and Stan’s first meeting as they drown their sorrows over their love life and career. Stan is such a lovely character that it is hard not to fall for him right off the bat. His career as a clown suited him so well because he seems like an eternally happy person despite his initial reaction towards his cheating ex and best friend. Similarly, David’s all-around passionate persona as a writer complemented Stan’s exuberance.
This one is another great read from Sue Brown and anyone who enjoys short, feel-good reads will get a kick out of this!
