it was ok
Read from November 21 to December 25, 2011 , read count: 2

I really didn't enjoy this book. The only part that I honestly enjoyed was the short story of Kim Harrison's but that was only because it gave more background into Ivy's character. Something that's quite nice since the main series is just focused on Rachel.

As far as "Dates" I think the only story that could possible count as a date in this book would be "Chaotic" and even then that wasn't really a traditional date...

Undead in the Garden of Good and Evil: Like I said I really enjoyed getting to head the back story on this situation. In the main series there was only slight mentioning of what really happened, and how Ivy got stuck with Rachel. The comic story picks up right after this followed by the main series. I really enjoyed getting a peek inside Ivy's character and seeing things from her point of view.

The Clair Switch Project: Gah! Absolutely hated this story. It seemed like the d-rated idea and conception of what you'd get from a disney show. Something I found really annoying was after the story goes to explain about how they've loved each other for so long, and how Kyle loved Claire even after she got her ability, it was sudden acceptable for him to change his dick length and size in the sex scene. It seemed so ridiculous to me, especially to think that Claire suddenly didn't care that he was being himself just because it would feel good. grrr The only part I did enjoy was the slight name spoof on Brad Pitt/Tom Cruise (even tho tom creaps me out.)

Chaotic: I enjoyed Chaotic but still didn't find it to be the number one story. As cool as it was to watch her get an explaination as to how she's been conned for so long, but otherwise I don't really see how any of this has to do with a date.

Dead Man Dating: Over all enjoyed the story, even though it wasn't really a date but more of a dealing with a creepy demon stalker. I found the idea rather dull. For someone that's supposedly spent his whole life killing demons it seemed annoying to me how he knew so little about the demon in this situation. His random stab in the dark as to which one might be as an ill-concieved idea of showing his knowledge and hunting prowess.... instead I found Chavez to be even less knowledable then the victim/main character.

I'm only keeping this book because of the story with Ivy otherwise I'd throw the whole book out.
