Review by: Claire Taylor on Aug. 24, 2012 :
A short story by an extremely talented author.

A quick read that follows Alex, a strong girl who is trained in martial arts and isn't afraid to stand up for herself and others - unfortunately though now all the boys at school stay well clear of her.

Tommy wasn't at her school the previous year when she took down the school bully, and doesn't seem to be put off by her reputation but is she Alex able to let him take care of her?

Well written, and will make you feel all warm inside.

Review by: Marcia Carrington on June 15, 2012 :
Charming young adult romance short story with a nice build-up of events, and appealing characters. The bullying sub-plot is well-handled and placed in a proper, and understandable context by the author, by tying it to the main character.

Such a cute story! A quick unique young adult read that left me wanting more. Alex is not your typical 18 year old girl. She has a special set of skills!Tommy is a yummy guy! I would have liked a little more about him and his skills. I want to read about Alex's two friends Laynie and Brittany. Ms. Blade will you be writing those soon? One can only hope! This contains no sex and a few swear words.

It's a good read.

I like that it is a romance book that focuses on bullying yet is not overpowered by it.

It's an intriguing short story.

Alex is different than most girls in her school. She has a brown belt in jujitsu and she pinned the school bully to the pavement for picking on another student. A safer school has its perks, but now the boys at school are afraid of her. So much that she hasn't been asked to the prom.

New hottie in town, Tommy, has been friendly but shows no sign he's feeling the same sparks for her that she feels for him. When Alex's friends step in and finagle a coffee date between Tommy and her, can Alex show Tommy that tough girls want love, too?

Short and sweet, this was a cute contemporary Young Adult story. I'm looking forward to the next two stories in Veronica Blade's Single Girls micro-trilogy! :)
