BOOK REVIEW: Six Feet Apart
by Elena Greyrock
ABOUT THE BOOKS (from Amazon):
A light and playful romance. Passion is contagious in this offbeat, humorous journey making life in the pandemic a little more bearable.
When Luna, a reluctant, wanna-be influencer meets Stryker, a mysterious undiscovered musician, everything changes in ways that keep you guessing. He is self absorbed, and thinks the world revolves around him. She is beautiful, yet shy, and struggles with attention.
A quirky character, Luna’s voice is fresh and bubbly. Some futuristic nuances in the book make it hard to put down as you follow the hilarity and complexities of Luna and Stryker’s relationship unfolding among uncertain times–who will find redemption? Featuring original songs!

I don’t typically review romance books. However, the author pitched this book to me and it sounded good, so I accepted a review copy in exchange for an honest review, and here it is…
Six Feet Apart: Love in Quarantine is a super quick read. The Kindle edition is just 144 pages and the audiobook is just 3 hours and 38 minutes. I have no idea what that comes out to page-count-wise, but that’s pretty short for an audiobook. If you enjoy romance books and find yourself at a point where you want to check off one more book before the end of the month, this is a good one for that.
I enjoyed this story. It’s a love story with Luna, a marketer who gets fired from her job, and Stryker, a musician with a surprising backstory. The two meet during quarantine and experience a bit of a rocky road in their journey.
I’ve read one other quarantine love story since we’ve been dealing with COVID-19, and I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it. COVID has been hard on all of us, and I thought it would be hard to read about it in a story (like a little too close to home), but it didn’t bother me at all since the characters’ experiences are actually quite relatable. The one piece of advice I would give this author, though, is to go back and re-write the parts that mention that the setting of this story are 5 YEARS into the pandemic. I’m sure this story was written during the throes of COVID, but it now feels a little off because we aren’t still quarantining 5 years later (at least I hope we won’t be!).
Ultimately, I thought it was a good story and a quick read.
