This was a book of four long stories of the silly-fluff chick-lit variety. It's about dating new people. I've been doing that myself, so I know this process can be funny and ridiculous, but mostly this book was overblown and tiresome. Each of the main characters was clueless and melodramatic, everyone was quirky to excess, and all of the situations were ridiculously extreme. It's books like this that make me hesitate to ever attempt to write a funny dating story book. If my shit is really as unf ...more

The trauma of the blind date. It’s like being trapped in a bad, four-hour movie. Like shopping for Manolos with a maxed-out Visa. Like going for a massage and getting a bikini wax instead. Like…well, you get the idea. How many frogs can a woman kiss before a non-slimy prince comes along? There’s only one way to find out…

Love Is Blind (Or At Least Nearsighted) Theresa Alan When it comes to dating, Heather’s been pretty lucky. Well, if you don’t count the verbal flasher and the guy who started goi

Fun stuff. The last story was a bit too romantic novel-ish for me, however.

What a hoot! Each story took a vastly different approach on the perils of blind dating. Cleo Barnes: Worst Blind Date Ever, may have been my favorite because Cleo was just neurotic. I also enjoyed Max. He seemed like a real guy you could actually meet becasue he was so genuine.

Just Jennifer was also grand. Nice to have the two different Point of Views. We don't often get the male voice in these stories. A very satisfying ending.

Overall, worth staying in for a night and reading these stories.

This was a very enjoyable book. It's an anthology featuring Theresa Alan, Holly Chamberlin, Marcia Evanick and Lisa Plumley.

I was originally interested because someone recommended Lisa Plumley. I found I enjoyed all the stories, leading me to look into other books by these authors.

All of the stories were fun, interesting and there were several spots that were laugh out loud funny. It's rare that I enjoy all the stories in an anthology but I did with this one.

This was the first book in my ENTIRE life that I have ever considered not finishing. I did keep hoping that each story would in some way be better than its predecessor, but I was bitterly disappointed. This collection was a waste of my limited and very precious reading time.

Gaaaah. I think reading this book made me more stupid. Poorly written, unrealistic dialogue, telegraphed plotlines... It benefits from being a short story collection, if only because you keep thinking, maybe the next one will be better.

A series of stories about girls that got all excited about boys, shaved thier legs, and then was sorely disappointed. Raise your hand if that's happened to you!!!!!!!!

Writing was not very good. Stories were too predictable. Kinda made me feel like I lost brain cells for reading it.
