So I hate to say this, but this set of short stories was not my favorite. I definitely prefer My College Desires. I liked the last story best. I didn’t connect with the first story and the second story would have been better if it was about Vincent. So let’s jump into what I’m talking about.
The Lonely Writer
I’m not a fan of this story at all. I couldn’t connect with the characters and Christina and William annoyed the hell out of me. Let me try to explain. First let me say that I did start off liking it. I thought it was cute how insecure William was and how his thoughts are probably the same as most women. Plus all that wanting coffee talk really made me want a coffee. Also, most of the sex was pretty hot but that’s about it. So Im giving this a 2.5 and rounding up to 3 because the third story was the best. Anyway... When Christina and William started interacting, that is where I couldn’t stand the back and forth between them. So, the multiple reasons why this story dry humped my last nerve. I’m done with the period talk. Even if they are only talking about a “man period”. Please just stop. It’s not sexy. You'll have to read the full review on my blog to get all the details.
This story was just odd to me. Kevin and Vincent are going to work out. Vincent is married but apparently his wife is okay with bringing another woman into the bedroom. Which I would love to read about. But no, this story is about Kevin. The guys spot a couple of women working out and comment on how old they are and their old bodies and how their kids are probably old with kids of their own. So… they guesstimate they are 45-50. WTF? Really? That is not old. And I am assuming… since this story is very confusing on who I was actually reading about, that it was both guys saying this and I’m assuming they were talking about both women. I did go back and reread and try to figure it out, but I’m still unclear. This short story has a random stranger, no protection and she doesn’t want him to pull out. Hmm... again. not my favorite story and I was confused most of the time.
Assisting the Trainer
So this story is my favorite out of the three. These people know each other and I’m guessing they work together as trainers at the gym. Marcus is giving Vivian a foot rub and it feels hella good. Marcus and Vivian are clearly interested in each other and Marcus puts on the suave moves.
Overall, all these stories were filled with awkward moments, a lot of internal dialog which did confuse me on what was going on and unprotected one night stands with strangers. Like I said before, the first story I couldn’t connect with, the second story was just odd to me and the third story was my favorite. I may be experiencing an off day or something so maybe that’s why I couldn’t connect with this one. But I would recommend trying this author out and this series. The writing is good and the ideas are great. So I’m giving this three stars because of the last story and the sex was crazy hot.
