Book Review: The OCD Games by Kayla Krantz

This is a sweet novella about a subject I haven't seen covered much in fiction, especially in the romance genre. Erica suffers from OCD, mostly having to replicate action three times. Ms. Krantz does a nice job explaining her compulsions and how Erica tries to cope with them. She attends her support group and sets up mechanisms to help her when she gets a new job. Her friend Kara helps though sometimes Kara seems manipulative, pushing her at Blaine, a guy at her new job.

I know little about this disorder but the subject matter is compelling. My only quibble is the book was too short. I would have liked to hear more about Blaine and seen an exploration of their relationship as it grew. Also, while dealing with Christmas lights is covered, I'd have liked to see how Christmas stresses someone with OCD. Still, it's a nice quick story and well-worth reading.
