Brady’s Choice


Thirty-six year old potter Brady Treherne is shocked to come face-to-face with his ex-lover, Philip, during what appears to be a simple job interview. Philip was both the love of his life and the man who got away, and seeing him now catapults Brady into revisiting memories he’d hoped he’d left behind.

Later that evening, Philip calls on him at home, and Brady finds himself having to make a choice between the man he used to love, and the new relationship he has just begun with another man. Which will he choose and can Brady reconcile his past with his future at all?

“This is a short but intense story examining the issue of ‘the one that got away’ and portrays it in an effective, concise manner … Brooke’s ability to pack such a great deal of information in so few words is amazing.” (From a review at Rainbow Book Reviews)

“I have long admired Brooke’s stories, because she is a master of the short form … she has a way of writing a short story with the same effect that another author would use 300 pages to tell. They are effective because they’re highly honed and there are no frivolous scenes, and in a medium where every word counts more than a sentence counts in a novel, the effect is that each scene, each bit of dialogue means more to the reader … This is a story that I will whole-heartedly recommend to anyone and I hope that those of you who buy this story will get as much or more enjoyment out of it than I did.” (From a 5 star review at Jessewave Reviews)
