 For short stories of romance this is a must have. I loved it. I could not put down this collection of fun romance. A good laugh and shocking twist. Though short each story packs a punch and is a fun little collection of love. All five shorts are tied to one another making it a flowing arrangement of shorts. It is a well written arrangement that I really enjoyed reading. A book I would recommend to all. I laughed and loved in this book with its relatable characters and fun stories. 
In "the hot girl's friend"  
You can not read this with out falling in love with the lead male and relating to the lead female and empathizing with her or her best friend's story. Well developed characters for such a short story. It almost ended too soon. I wanted to know more of their story. 
In "wrong place right guy"
After the lead is held up by knife caring thief she is saved by her prince charming, only he doesn't feel the same way. It's a fun story of finding love with the bad boy that you fall in love with as the lead does. This story is a quick read and leaves you wanting to know how happily ever after goes.
In "not you"
Everyone has their one night stand fantasies. This one turns out to be a nightmare. With a twist you don't see coming this one gives the lead the shock of her life. This fun and humorous short is the must read of the book for me. I was setting on the edge of my seat to see how things would work out in this nightmare love.
In "Desperately Seeking Cupid"
Finding advice from the singles table at a wedding is not a typical start to any romance but this funny short does just that. It leaves you with a smile on you face with every page turn. Everyone has a quirky elderly lady who gives you advice and you find it easy to love the elderly characters in this book. Along with all their fun loving advice. The characters in this story are just to easy to relate to. But after a few pages, this story is quiet easy to predict.
In "Never been dumped"
I found in this short I could not stop reading to find out what would happen next in the lead's perfect romance. Knowing all the details in a relationship even the future is everyone's dream come true. I read this short wait with every page turn to find out if it would really go as planned. This story leaves you thinking you got it figured out only to have a twist at the end leaving you on the edge of you seat to see what happens next.
