Throwing Smoke by Kit Sergeant

I read Throwing Smoke by Kit Sergeant, which is a romance/coming of age short story approximately 60 pages in length. Throwing Smoke is a prequel to the full length novel titled, Thrown for a Curve: Smart Women Find Love Book 1 by Kit Segeant.

I was able to download the ebook edition of Throwing Smoke by Kit Sergeant to my Kindle for FREE from Amazon. Below is my honest, unbiased review of Throwing Smoke by Kit Sergeant.

The writing for Throwing Smoke by Kit Sergeant was okay at best, in my opinion. The characters were not well developed and I disliked the cliffhanger ending! I will skip reading the follow up novel to this short story.

The following is a plot summary for Throwing Smoke by Kit Sergeant from Amazon:
One oblivious science major + one lovestruck fraternity brother = one sweet story!

It is the early 2000s. The baseball players at Western U are listening to Aerosmith, making bets, and just generally being their obnoxious selves. Addy Enders is a devoted marine biology student too preoccupied with breeding fruit flies and avoiding said baseball players to have time for a boyfriend. Until she meets Jed, a handsome economics major. But there is something that Jed doesn’t want Addy to know…

Ryan spends his time studying with his indifferent girlfriend and cleaning up after his fraternity brothers. The moment he sees The Girl, he knows she is unlike every other person in his life. Waiting outside the lecture hall for her to arrive adds a bright spot to his day, but is it worth risking his anonymity to introduce himself?

Throwing Smoke is an insightful and honest coming-of-age short story that explores the differences between male and female college angst and experiences. This short story prequel to the novel Thrown for a Curve: Smart Women Find Love Book 1 will appeal to anyone who has ever admired someone from afar or had their heart broken.
I am giving Throwing Smoke by Kit Sergeant a rating of 2 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. Too bad you didn't find enough to like in this sort-of-novella. Then again, you are not exactly the target audience. :-)
