Rectober Post #9 - Hunger Games

Author: HGRomance
Pairing(s): Katniss/Peeta
Rating: R
Word Count: 3405
Warnings: None
Summary: I was a smoky-eyed guitarist, dipped in kohl and tattooed. He was a preppy daddy with a dandelion for a kid. And he had to be ten years older than me. Modern AU. One-shot.

Why I loved it: I don't generally read Hunger Games AUs. I prefer reading about alternate canons or fill in the blanks or just about anything canon-related. But I saw this summary and couldn't resist. Man, this hit a lot of buttons. Katniss actually felt like Katniss (which is hard for me to buy outside of canon stories), there's a sweet romance with just enough heat to steam the page, and the potential made my mind go awhirl. In fact, I enjoyed this little one-shot so much I actually went out and bought one of this author's original works. I *very* rarely do that.
