After reading the irst few ales in that collection, I was in love! When the author sent over the second edition, I was ecstatic!
This econd collection of drabbles had a bit of everyon and I had so much fun reading it.Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this essa by the write in exchange for an honest eview.
It was so funny to see stories start out as cute and romantic, but then suddenly get extremely dark.Of course, with any type of collection, it ’ s normal for me to love some and dislike some.
There were also a few in this collection that I didn ’ t like because of the content matter.Feel free to read on to see my quick thoughts after I read each story.Aye Eye by Terry M.
