    This was short and sweet, insta love and enjoyable enough. Not one I will remember tho, to be honest. Sam overhears someone fall and some G-rated cursing and goes to investigate. What he finds is his hot new neighbor who fell on some ice and needs assistance. what turns out was sweet and charming.

    Bravo for this author's debut story. Sam and Casey are sweet and hot, gentle and loving, and my only complaint is I sure wish it would've been longer. I'd love to know where they go from here and how it works out. Hmpf, Kenzie, I'll need to have words with you my friend! Overall, a delightful short story that I could reread over and over!

    What a cute little story! Definitely on the sweeter side of romance it features two men just made for each other. Sam is naturally shy, and Casey has suffered some significant personal losses lately. When they meet up, the interest is immediate, as is their realization they want more. The style is humorous and lighthearted, the plot simple and straightforward. Just the right thing if you're looking for a short feel-good story.Sam is a quiet guy, an author who doesn't have a lot of expectations, He also has a good heart, so when hi new neighbor Casey slips on the ice in front of their apartment building and hurts his ankle, Sam overcomes his shyness and helps. While he is definitely attracted to Casey, he doesn't believe it could be mutual. He has no idea!Casey has had a tough year, with his boyfriend of ten years cheating on him, then his mother dying. He is ready for a new start, but breaking his ankle as he moves in does not bode well. Except for one thing: Sam comes to his rescue and Casey decides that is not a bad thing. He wants the man, but he'll need all his stubbornness to convince Sam that he is serious.If you like short, sweet stories with no angst and instant attraction that evolves into more, if you like reading about shy men coming out of their shell, and if some very creative G-rated swearing sounds like fun, you will probably like this short story.NOTE: This book was provided by Dreamspinner Press for the purpose of a review.

    This is a very cute, easy, fluffy cupcake read.It's a bit insta-love but that's ok.Two hot guys *fall* (pun) for each other and despite a broken foot are able to do without the crutches for one night...*um yes* anyway, it's a nice little story.

    4.5 StarsA "Live Your Life, Buy The Book" ReviewThis is an amazing book! I am trying to ignore the fact that this is a first time published book for this author. That’s right – Kenzie Cade is a fledgling author; and wow! She is going to soar! I am sooooo looking forward to more books from this very promising new author.It is only a little book – just some 32 pages, but she has got the timing and weight of the romance in this book just perfect. So many times I pick up a book and it is way too much, way too soon – yes, I’m talkin bout sex, baby. I cannot connect with the guys if they get together too soon – it really is just words on paper to me. Even if the book carries on for 300 plus pages – the kapow has gone. I need to feel for the characters before I can give a toss about them being together. Weird on my part? Probably. So how does an author manage to achieve this connection (and then some!) in a book of only 32 pages? Read “Son of a Fish” and you will see how!Sam meets Casey after Casey takes a fall and needs some help. Each guy thinks the other guy is pretty cute. Feelers are put out by asking some questions about any girlfriends in the hopes that the other guy is gay. Result! No girlfriends. The physical attraction is instantaneous but in a short space of time the guys actually get to know enough about eachother for the connection to be more than just physical. And I, the reader, was totally on board and invested in their burgeoning relationship. It was believable. It felt real. A finely crafted short story indeed. And that is pretty much all I can tell you other than…I cannot recommend this book highly enough! Here’s hoping the entire Mended collection is as good. Go. Buy the Book!

    Just the G-rated curses in the first sentence of this short story made me want to keep reading. Mother clucker – I’m using that one. This is what Sam, a writer, is faced with when he walks around the a corner and sees a jumble of boxes and assorted household items covering up the grade-school curser. An icy sidewalk has claimed a victim and Sam is there to be a good Samaritan. Even better because said victim, Casey, is lovely to look at and sweet besides. An injured ankle allows Sam and Casey the time to get to know each other. I liked both the characters here. Sam, embarrassed about the types of books he’s had published (romance!) and Casey, a big manly jock who doesn’t swear because it upset his mom and he likes to think he’s making her happy. Sigh, adorable duo. No angst here, just the warm fuzzies that made me smile. And when Sam catches Casey at something, he’s “A fish drowning in confusion.” And that made me smile again. Such a great debut story from this author, one I’ll definitely be watching for more.

    Son of a Fish is a sweet short story which tells us about Sam Crowe and Casey Sanders. They meet when Sam rescues Casey, who has fallen at Sam’s doorstep, victim of the ice in the pavement. Sam feels immediately attracted by the handsome stranger, and it is really cute see him struggling with words to try to find out if there is a girlfriend in his life. As for Casey, he is surprised by how appealing he finds his rescuer, even though he is normally attracted by bolder types. After checking Casey’s injure is worse than a mere sprained ankle, Sam takes him to hospital to have it plastered. Seeing that it is going to be difficult for Casey to get to his own place, Sam also offers his spare room for the night. Casey accepts the invitation, seeking not only a place to spend the night but also a chance to spend more time with his charming host.What I like most in this story is the way Kenzie Cade manages to convey so much information in a really short story. She makes her characters believable and likeable. We find about Sam’s nurturing and shy nature, his kind and noble heart. We also find out about Casey’s unhappy past, he’s lost many important things recently, and about his strong character. The attraction between them is immediate, and the end of the story leaves you eager for more. I hope this is the first chapter of a longest story telling us how these two charming characters evolve. I would love to continue reading about them.

    My Quickie Review:This is a short novella so it only covers basically 24 hours in time, but whoa...Kenzie Cade packed a lot of amazing story into that 24 hours worth of book. Sam & Casey...new neighbors who meet after Casey falls on the ice moving in. He just moved to town, doesn't know anyone, or have anyone to call. Sam is literally the first person he meets and the story develops from there because Casey is hurt from his fall and needs someone. On the surface the guys don't have much in common. Casey is a high school coach. Sam is a writer. But circumstances allow them to bond in a way that wouldn't normally happen and that's why this 24 hour story worked for me. I could buy it and believe it. It helps that the writing is so flawless and flows perfectly. I am stunned that this is Kenzie Cade's first release. I have a feeling if the rest of her writing is like this, she just made it onto my auto-buy list. My only complaint is...I wanted more. Sam and Casey are awesome together and I'd love to see more of them. They had great banter and the whole title of the book and the reasoning behind made me giggle at the same time it melted my heart a little (okay, a lot.)I'd definitely recommend this one. It's quick...can be read in under an hour, but it's a story that leaves you with a smile on your face. Some things are just meant to be and Sam & Casey fall under that grouping.

    This book has the best title ever! And when you find out why I say that, I hope you laugh as long and hard as I did. This story is so darn lovely. I'm blown away that this is the work of a first time author. Her comedic timing is perfectly balanced with sweet, sensual and heartwarming. I absolutely adored Sam and Casey. I don't want to give too much of the story away, but Casey and his mouth really stole the show and took a chunk of my heart in the first few pages. There was no way Sam wouldn't fall for him. And Sam is just so genuine and nurturing. Gah, and the smexy parts... so damn yummy. This book may be little, but these characters and their story completely enchanted me and captured my heart. I will be eagerly awaiting more from this author. I highly recommended!!

    A short little tale of opposites attracting and setting the sheets on fire, with a little side trip to the ER.Kenzie Cade is a debut author, and you know how much I love those, so I couldn’t pass this title up. Sam hears a loud noise and some G rated “swearing” and goes to investigate. What he is met with is a handsome man in the need of a little TLC. As there aren’t many pages for them to get together, they quickly realize there is more than just patient and good samaritan between them.Find the Full review at Prism Book Alliance http://www.prismbookalliance.com/?pos...

    This is a super quick lunch time read, but the author gave her characters more depth than some full length novels I have read.Sam comes to Casey's rescue and Casey couldn't be happier about breaking his ankle. A quick trip to the hospital, some slipping and sliding on ice and these two could be their way to a happily ever after.Well written and definitely one that I would re-visit if the author decided to do a follow up with these characters, if for no other reason then to read more of Casey's unique way of cussing. You will walk away from this novella feeling satisfied but craving to know more. This first time author is off to a great start and I for one am looking forward to more!

    Son of a Fish by author Kenzie Cade is a really well done short story. Sam I really liked his layers. He is more than meets the eye. Kind of like the title of this book, deeper meaning that you think at first. Casey is a sweet kind guy who just has some trouble getting his footing. I like his care- free attitude made me really want the romance in this book to work out. This story is pretty fast but well worth the read, a MM with heart and soul that I won’t soon forget.Four twinking Stars!!

    3.5 stars rounded up."Son of a fish, mother clucker, cripes on a cracker, dadgumit!" When Sam Crowe meets Casey Sanders, he can't help laughing because Casey is cursing up a storm but the expletives are more G rated than X rated! However the reason for the cursing isn't so funny because Casey has slipped on some ice outside Sam's door and done some pretty serious damage to his ankle! He actually lives in the same building as Sam, but on the third floor, so the only option really is to try and get him into Sams apartment so they can check out what damage has been done to his ankle. What they think might be a sprain turns out to be a break so a trip to ER is on the cards, then back to Sams for some smexy TLC!Self-effacing Sam is instantly attracted to this gorgeous guy and ditto for Casey, who (although Sam isn't his usual type normally) finds his endearing blushing rescuer adorable. We see both guys POV's as they begin to bond over the accident and we also learn about a recent sad loss in Casey's life that explains why he never uses swear words anymore, as well as a cheating ex boyfriend who's left him feeling disappointed in love, so its this that gives it the hurt/comfort background that ties it into the anthology.Being naturally shy, Sam can't really see why someone as hot as Casey would want him so at one point there's a tiny touch of trepidation but ultimately this is what it is...a feel good, comfort read and it was short, sweet and satisfying.'"I know where I am, Sam. I know what I'm doing," Casey whispered against his ear while wrapping an arm around Sam's waist, closing the distance between their bodies...I really liked Sam and Casey. I felt the connection between them and that's why I think I managed to overlook just how fast their getting together was. In quickie reads it either works or doesn't but in this case I reckon Kenzie pulls it off. The tension was there and the chemistry was evident. It just boiled down to the length for me...a little longer, a little more fleshed out and this would have been 4 stars.Of all the stories I've read from the Daily Dose 'Mended' anthology from Dreamspinner, 'Son Of A Fish' is probably the shortest one, I read it well under the hour and it was a cute, sexy read. The hurt/comfort theme isn't quite as prominent in this one, more alluded to than shown, so balancing it against the others I've read from the anthology, I have to be honest and say the emotional grab wasn't quite as strong for me, but that didn't take away the enjoyment I got from seeing two gorgeous guys get together over the course of it. It delivers what most m/m romance readers want in their romances and does it very nicely. Because of its length this was more like a taster from Kenzie Cade so I'm really looking forward to seeing what she can do when given the chance to write a longer novella or hopefully a novel because with stories this short I always want more.A new author to keep an eye open for and I wish Kenzie loads of luck with her debut short and future career as a writer.

    3.5 This short story is one of many available from the Mended 2014 Daily Dose Anthology. We have a very quick story of two men who meet by accident, literally, as Casey falls and breaks his foot right at Sam’s front door. The story is 25 pages, and it was enjoyable for what is was. It was well written and the pacing was good. It’s rather difficult with a short story to know the characters well enough, but the author did a fine job sprinkling bits of their lives throughout the story. Sam is the quiet one leading a quaint life as a journalist and Casey is the football coach who has just relocated from a life filled with heartache. This is your typical yin and yang romance trope. And I liked it. If you are looking for a quick easy read about a “first-time” meeting between cute men then I highly recommend this one. I hope the author has plans to write more in the future and hopefully on the longer side because I think the writing was really good. Would like to see some world building and more layers to the characters that can’t be accomplished in 25 pages.

    If you're trying, in a non-PWP way, to go from two leads meeting to blowjob city, with insta-attraction, dual POVs, hurt/comfort, and a door left open for a traditional HEA, all in a story THIS short (on my reader, the text starts on page 2 and ends on page 18,) and you are wasting words to describe precise eye color, please PLEASE stick to ffn.MC 1: "moss green"MC 2: "jewellike navy blue"It's never brown eyes, is it? The green ones here are also called "orbs" at one point. Never a good sign. Never, never.I actually broke a limb once upon a time. It was about twenty years ago, but I can tell you right now, I came out of the emergency room in no fit state for any blowjobs. Maybe in a week I had recovered enough? Maaaaybe. Certainly not after a NAP, like the character in this book. And I wasn't even on the good painkillers. So yeah there was very little chance I was going to be able to buy into any of this hot nonsense here.

    This story sounded interesting in the premise but it largely forgettable. The hook is the funny cursing, but the rest of the story doesn’t contain any laughs. Its insta lust moving very quickly towards a relationship. Two bland characters and a lot of unnecessary detail about things that don’t pertain to their relationship. Still as I understand it, this is a fairly new author so I would be willing to give her another try!

    This book was stupid adorable. The chemistry was instantaneous and Sam is such a good guy. I was immediately rooting for them. (view spoiler)[ And Sam walking out of that bedroom to make sure he didn't take advantage was so amazing I wanted to cry. (hide spoiler)] Basically, this was the perfect beginning to an adorable love story. It made me want more.

    This is a fun and friendly romance between two nice guys who meet during a Texas winter. I liked the characters and found the tale relaxing. I was sorry it was so short.This is an adult story and may well appeal to gay people more than to me.
