Lunch Date (The Morganville Vampires: Extras)

Lunch was always an iffy proposition at the Glass House. Some days all of Claire’s house mates were all in, most days nobody was; some days there was food in the fridge. Most days, not. Claire had made a fine art out of scrounging up crackers and cans of soup. Her favorite was cream of tomato. Yum.

Can I get a hooray for finally having the story behind Shane working at the city dump?

Not that it is much of a story. It is nothing more than Claire finding him getting changed when he was supposed to be at work. I’m simply glad we have something other than the constant references.

I won't start this review with a synopsis, since that is available under the book description.

Cute little short about Claire & Shane. Can't get enough of those two.

Just a simple little short story about Shane and Claire's budding romance.

As usual I love all Morganville books.

This one didn't make too much sense - as in it didn't go anywhere as such but I still loved it!

So much potential...then so much let down. LOL
This is a snippet. It did get my heart beating a few times, so my emotional response to this snippet was strong. In that way I really liked it. However, it stopped so abruptly that I had to take a star away.
Not much here but a glimpse at Glass House life. Well, and a glimpse at a possible romantic interlude.

This was a quick and cute story about Claire and Shane. Claire comes home from lunch and never knows what to expect in the Glass house. When she hears a noise upstairs she fears the worst, but instead finds a stinky situation.

I liked this! Short, precise, and another cool interaction between this cute couple.

Quite a short read compared to the other segments of the story available on Rachel Caine's website but I think this is among one of the better ones. It's not drawn out and it's not TOO short, it's almost like having a random flashback of a moment that you'd forgotten. Can't fault the writing :)

This was a cute novella for what it was, but it was way too short for me and not really much drama. It was cute if you're a fan of Shane and Claire though, and any new little bit to read about Morganville is ok in my book!

A very short story about lunch with Claire and Shane. Though it is not much of a story. It is really just Claire finding him getting changed when he was supposed to be at work. I think the story needed something more, it could havebeenlonger and had more to the story.

It was a fast read, but nothing that I haven't read or discovered in the books. It was a nice reminder of how things were easier in the past (I'm reaching the end of the series, so I'm turning gloomy, mind you). Sigh. I'm going to miss this so much.

Cute little short about Claire & Shane. Too short for my taste but for me when it's them it's always too short!

Lunch Date is a very skippable short. There is nothing about it that enhances the plot or reveals secrets. It is a brief scene between Shane and Clair.
