For Internal Use Only by Cari Kamm Review & Giveaway

Chloe Kassidy has just been accepted into one of Manhattan’s most exclusive art exhibits, Love Through Light. However, with her singular dedication to her career, she soon realizes that in sacrificing her personal life, she has never been in love. A hopeless romantic who is terrified of heartbreak, Chloe begins to enlist the help of her circle of friends to learn about love through their very different stories and experiences. 

In Chloe’s emotional rollercoaster to having the greatest love story ever told, she’ll learn that like her photography she must use the negatives in life to develop and prove that she’s a strong woman who found her way to love through light.

Inspired by the notion that women grow up with ideas of true love and destiny, For Internal Use Only approaches those ideas with a decidedly twenty-first century viewpoint. A humorous love story with an edgy and dramatic twist, For Internal Use Only is a vastly entertaining novel that gives each of us a new fairy tale to look forward to: our own.

For Internal Use Only is strong in character dynamics.  Chloe and her friends have a strong bond of friendship that remains intact throughout the book.  But Chloe is tested.  She goes through a myriad of emotions in this story, but it's kept realistic and is easy for a reader to connect with.

Not a photographer myself, I was intrigued at how much thought Chloe put into her pieces - how thought-provoking they were and where they came from her personally.  She's looking for love, her soulmate, yet she also is working on three perfect pieces for a gallery exhibit called Love Through Light.  Coincidence? I think not - the author ties them both together perfectly.

It was also interesting to see how Chloe's potential love interest played out with social media.  With a lot of today's society reliant on social media and technology, it was a relevant and modern idea.  If you're looking for a new author with a knack for creating dynamic characters and a modern plot, pick up For Internal Use Only! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
