A short love story about the angels and devils that sit on our shoulders and whisper in our ears.

Kale is part of the darkness that seeks to corrupt mortals and Ariel is part of the light at the end of the tunnel. They are at odds; their duty to tip the scales in their favor. But sometimes, there’s more to duty than what you know. Sometimes, there’s a greater purpose. And s

In one word: cute. I love the concept of taking the angel-and-devil characters seen in old cartoons, putting them on someone's shoulder, and then seeing what would really happen. I think it needed more room to develop the romance entirely - more interaction between the characters, mainly - but overall it was an enjoyable read. My main issue was that the story ended around the 50% mark of the Kindle version, the other half being taken up by a book excerpt. That annoyed me to some degree, even tho ...more

An enjoyable short about an unusual topic. Well, not that love is unusual, but the types of characters are. I'd love to see this expanded into something longer someday. Maybe some human will have the power to notice them and will flick Kale off their shoulder when he tries to make them get fat by eating nothing by junk food! :D
Love it! Influence Of Love is so sweet and different! Two Influencers, one angel and one demon, develop feelings for each other! How unusual! I would definitely read more.

Really would give this a 3.5 rating.
Such a great idea. I've never read anything like it before. Being a short story, I felt like I was able to get to know Kale and Ariel. How creative to write a story about the devil and the angel that sit on our shoulders! Then, to top it off, forbidden love between them. Gotta love forbidden love.

Short stories are tricky to write. I think a short story about love is even trickier. While the characters were well written, the plot was a little confusing. Suspens

While a cute premise, I found the writing VERY choppy. I had to go back and read parts over again because the author would switch things without letting the reader know why. I found myself asking, "wait, when did that happen?" and then I would realize that the author just skipped it. Weird. Like I said, cute premise, but still needs lots of work.
short story, interesting premise, kinda sweet. it wasn't long enough for me to feel invested in either character. perhaps i should stick to longer stories.
Interesting concept and truly original but it needed much more development. The romance was cute although - yes, you guessed it - very short.

I don't remember when exactly it happened, maybe while my husband was in college. I had a dream one night (and I always feel like I'm ripping off Stephenie Meyers when I say this but it's the truth) and in it there was this girl and a vampire, and the cast of True Blood was trying to keep them apart. I woke with the urge to write it - although not the True Blood part. So I did. As I went, I wasn't ...more
