Jacob’s in a pickle. He needs a new flatmate, and soon. And what better way to advertise than on the noticeboards around campus?

Trouble is, someone is taking down his ads.

Jacob writes to the offending thief, little expecting to be answered—and soon he finds himself in a deeper pickle: who is this Mr. X that he keeps writing to?

And how can Jacob be falling for him?

Unique premise. The story however, was a bit of a merry-go-round, thank Gawd it was a short book, I would have skimmed otherwise.

Well, that was an adorable little short, especially for it to be *free*.

I loved how Jacob's firm tone to Mr. X, who had taken down every single one of his "Roommate Wanted" posters, slowly changed from one of "God, I really hate you" to "Well, maybe I don't hate you quite as much as I should."

The back and forth notes on the campus notice board were thoroughly entertaining. So much banter, and I'm a complete sucker for banter.

But Jacob is in an awkward spot when he ends up with 3 roommate ca

Notice me yet? Was so adorable and sweet it all starts with an ad for a roommate and an ad thief called Mr. X. Who could it be? Love the guessing game and the notes between the MC were so sweet. Short but enjoyable read. ❤

4.5 stars, rounded up to 5.

Cute, sweet, original and beautiful.

I loved it. I wanted more. I always want more with Anyta's stories. She has a gift, she really knows how to write this kind of characters. Lovely, sexy, young and funny guys.

This short tells how Jacob (healing after a breakup) and Mr. X (anonymous and playful admirer) start a friendship and a love story through notes shared in a noticeboard at university.

I really loved this freebie. It's short, it's sweet, it's well written.

I enjoyed the writing and the mysterious Mr. X. This was a nice surprise, the whole time wondering who Mr. X was. I really enjoyed their banter through pinned messages on the campus board. I think this was unique and it really made me love this story.

Jacob wants to find a new flatmate and has to choose between 3 very different men . Mr. Shy Guy, Mr. Philosophy and Mr. Hunk.

This was SO cute! 4.25 stars!

Perfectly crafted little M/M romance short story with an epistolary aspect, funny and bittersweet by turns, about processing the end of a former relationship while starting a new one.

College student Jacob is putting up ads around campus for a roommate, but someone is taking them down. He writes to the flier thief, who writes back, and they start a banter-tastic flirtation by letter that complicates Jacob's roommate search and keeps him (and readers) guessing about the identity of "Mr. X".

You know, I've yet to read a book by Anyta Sunday that I didn't absolutely adore. This was no exception.

Told for the most part through notes pinned to a notice board, the story was unique and heartwarming. There was a cute bit of mystery too. Just who is Mr. X? I hoped that who he was was who I wanted him to be and I got my wish! I may or may not have done a happy dance in my living room when I found out who it was.

Suffice it to say...

I read my first Sunday on a Sunday and it did hit the right spot.

A complete short piece with layers of banter, fun, a dose of angst all effortlessly sewn in. A good Sunday read.

The idea of exchanging notes on a bulletin board was fun. In the age of social media, phone texting, and instant messaging, I liked that these young kids could still write long notes to one another. Unfortunately, on a whole, I’m afraid this story is a case of BIG MEH for me.

Why didn’t it work?

1) The whole ‘notes exchange’ dragged after awhile. And could people really write notes that LONG?? Some of these notes felt like letters. Didn’t Jacob and Mr. X write the notes on the spot? How l

A love story based on exchanging notes on a bulletin board? Awesome! So old-fashioned and sweet! And I kept wondering who Mr X was all the time.

I can easily relate to the thin difference between corresponding with someone you like and .. stalking them.

"I love to stalk you real, real good. I took your name home after our date and we had the best Google session of my life."

This was a charming little novella and a super quick read featuring college boys.

Jacob puts up an advert on the college bulletin board seeking a new flatmate. The problem is that someone keeps taking down his ads. Jacob writes a note to the perpetrator, and a conversation (which takes place solely on this bulletin board via hand-written notes) develops between him and "Mr. X."

It turns out Mr. X keeps taking down the notes because he wants Jacob all to himself. Jacob interviews three potential

Frustratingly sweet!

Oh my.....I just couldn’t put this shorty down. I felt like I was a voyeur, going through someone’s notes (old school here, no texts!). For the life of me I couldn’t figure out who Mr. X was. I thought I had, but I was positively wrong. This was fun and sweet and frustratingly mysterious. Definitely a fun read over a cup of tea and some sweet pie!

No idea why I haven't read this sooner.

It was really fun and super adorable. Excellent for a short story and so well-written. And, if I may add, I'm very happy with who Mr X turned out to be.

Enjoyable short story with a quirky little twist. Liked the idea of communicating on the notice board but I did have a little ponder at how they didn't see each other writing some of the longer messages... I think poetic license covers that. I liked it. I guessed the right guy at the end but it didn't matter because it was fun reading the messages they bounced between them ... I was just glad he didn't fall under his exe's spell! Very nice.

Jacob needed a new apartment mate. He put ads on bulletin boards around his college campus. Shortly after that, he noticed that the ads were gone. So, he left a note, scolding whoever took his ads down. He got a reply note from a Mr.X, which he replied back, and they started to write to each other on the board.

Shortly, three guys called, expressing their interest on renting the room. One of them may be Mr.X. Which one?

In the meantime, Jacob's ex started to show his interest too...

It’s pretty safe to say I’m in the midst of a fairly serious Anyta Sunday obsession. Do I care? Not in the slightest. I’m loving every minute of it.

This was so cute!! I loved the notes on the message board, and I was trying to figure out who Mr. X was too. I am so pleased with who it turned out to be. I just wish the sort of epilogue had been longer to see them together in person, not just thru notes. Sigh. Thankfully I have a good imagination. :) I smiled thru the whole book.

Noticed Me Yet? If you haven't, don't bother.

This one didn’t make any sense to me. Didn’t understand what was so nice about a stalker (albeit an inoffensive one) that would make Jacob fall in love with him.

Their interaction, carried out through a note exchange on the campus board, was silly. The mysterious guy was playing games with Jacob and he just falls for him? Ridiculous.

Short and without a consequence. Don’t recommend.

A really sweet short story. I liked the meet cute aspect, and I really liked that it didn't turn out the way I was afraid it was going to (view spoiler) Just the kind of story I was in the mood for. Thank you to my secret Santa. ...more

This was so cute and made my heart pump in a funny way! I was giddy and over the moon at the cute notes the guys left each other - and for the life of me I couldn't figure out who Mr. X was.

I will say that I was happy with who he turned out to be!

Brilliant and oh so cute.

Was a four till about 80%. Granted I love epistolary romance and at this point the notes lessened, but there seemed to be a switch otherwise. The storytelling got schmaltzy, hurried and trope-y.

Added to the effect, I know, it's because I wanted a different guy to be Mr. X. I think in the backlash against standard romance characters another standard love interest type is emerging. This choice of Mr. X plays to such.

Anyway, quite aside from this, I smiled throughout...again mostly because I LO

Another little Anyta Sunday shortie.

Jacob has lost his flat mate, and can't afford to live in his place on his own...he starts leaving notices all around the campus advertising for a new flatmate. Unfortunately, all the notices keep disappearing and Jacob is getting really miffed. He starts leaving notes for the thief, and ends up with more than he bargained for.....

Liked this one, and yes Anyta, I did correctly guess who Mr X was!!

I loved this one!!!
Jacob needs a flatmate and when he put the ads on his college noticeboard someone put tgem down ~ angry, he decided to leave a note for the "ad thief" and just there starts a long conversation with the anonymous man!

At the same time, 3 boys wanted to rent the room and he knows one of them is the mysterious man but WHO?

I have been totally hooked and loved the ending and the mystery revelation!! :"")
