Review: Capricious by Jade Eby

By: Jade Eby
**This is a short story**

Lacey Caldez is in a bind.

Her bills aren't paid, her mother is broken, and they're about to lose their house. Realizing she's low on options, she buries her pride and approaches the last person she ever wanted to owe a favor to.

Robbie Reynolds is brutal, demanding, and one hell of a mobster. He's also her ex. But despite his character flaws, he offers her a chance to avoid financial ruin—but can she stomach what he's asking of her?
Definition:  Characterized by or subject to whim; impulsive and unpredictable.


This was a very short but dark read.


Lacey is in the shit, she lives with her mother, works two jobs and it’s not enough to pay the bills.  Her ex shows up at her work and offers her the opportunity to clear her debt and it’s an offer she can’t resist, she really has no other choice.


Another fabulous short story from this author, amazing how so much can be said in so few pages.  I’m looking forward to more from Jade Eby.
I give it 4 stars.
