Gone Stumping is a different kind of read. On the positive side it’s a decent story about two men that are frustrated with parts of their lives and through meeting each other, break out of the mold they’ve cast for themselves. Watching two men realize they can break away from stereotypes is a nice story. The political vehicle to this is rather predictable and takes some obvious leaps but what really hindered my enjoyment was the writing itself.

The story follows Aiden Montgomery, a political cam
This is a book with an enormous amount of potential but it just kept falling short. There were so many things that could have been more interesting if they had just been given more time.

Where to start?

The main character, Adian. Adian is the campaign manager for a senator seeking re-election in PA. He is also sleeping with the Senator on the down low. We learn that Aidan has an appreciation for the finer things in life. While alone he walks around the Senator's home and notice the luxury and qua
This short novella is about two guys that are unlikely to hook up but when they do, their (perspective on) life alters. With a premise like that and given the short amount of time they have for the mutual life-changing influence, a great deal of suspending of disbelieve is involved. Luckily the backblurb prepared me a bit so I could anticipate the change, at least that of self-absorbed and shallow Aidan.

As much as I like the idea of this concept it fell a bit flat for me in this book. The autho

Before I begin, I just want to mention that although the blurb of the book, which I’ve taken from the publisher’s site, spells the hero’s name as Aidan, my copy of the story has his name spelled as Aiden all the way through, so I’m sticking to what is probably the author’s original spelling, rather than what’s in the blurb.

Aiden is one of life’s movers and shakers. He’s just got a job as campaign manager to a senator, through his good looks and a willingness to be bedded by the senator, and acce

The reason I assigned a five star review to 'Gone Stumping' is because... I wrote it! LOL. It is not an homage to the writing skills and expertise that I may or may not posses. It is, however a reflection of the fact that this is the ideal type of story that I enjoy reading. I identify with Aiden Montgomery, and I aspire to be more like Rafe McCafferty. To anyone who enjoys a story of life-changing perspective that another person can bring into ones life... Consider reading Gone Stumping.

Needs better editing. I had to read the first couple of pages a few times to make sure I understood who was doing/wanted/thought what. Kept reading, but the language continued to seem florid and confusing, and I just couldn't get into it enough to care about anyone or want to read more. So I didn't.

I'm a die hard fan of blue collar/white collar stories, so I enjoyed this one, although it was quite cliched and the language was maybe a little stilted. But overall it was a good read and I liked the message.
