Find out what happens when you give six authors the SAME blurb and they write their OWN story.
You know those people that have a house full of motivational slogans? Embrace Every Moment, stamped on their coffee mugs. Always Kiss Me Goodnight painted above their perfectly made beds.
I’m not one of those people.
This morning I overslept, then slipped on a stray sock and banged my toe into the nightstand. The elevator in my building broke and I had to run down six flights of stairs. And then my local coffee shop was closed. For health code violations.
What’s that? Not the end of the world? You want me to suck it up?
Did I mention I’m wearing a wedding dress… on the subway?
It’s a Good Day for a Hot Mess.
Someone embroider that on a pillow.
There are six quite long novellas included in Love in Transit, and apart from the same blurb, the stories are very different.
I really enjoyed most of the stories, and I found it funny that they were so different – it is really proof that a summary doesn’t really mean much. Love in Transit is not only six different stories, they are also written by six different authors.
I found the stories to be enticing, with good character development and some of them were also very funny. I have to admit that Time Square by Jana Aston was my favorite. She has a way to blend romance and comedy to perfection, and I laughed out loud more than once.
Seeing how the different authors came up with a unique take on the summary was as much fun as reading each novella, and some of the stories were extremely hot.
This anthology is no longer for sale, but it is possible to buy the individual stories now, and if you’re a fan of romance, with different twists in each story, Love in Transit should make it to your shelves, even if you have to go about it differently now.
It’s the only city in the world where you can buy a cupcake from a vending machine, get Pad Thai delivered at three AM and do your laundry in a twenty-four-hour laundromat with organic detergent and free wifi.
I’m sort of curious about the sex offer. Like I wonder what he wanted and how much he was willing to pay. Not that I would have! Of course not. But it’d be nice to know how much I could fetch in a jam. Just saying.
My book club meets at this really cool hybrid shop on Seventh. Thy sell wine and books – a Manhattan bookworm’s dream. There’s an area towards the back reserved for book club meetings.
