I enjoyed this steamy short story about a shy, introverted woman named Casie, and her evolving relationship with a guy she meets on Twitter. The characters were described well, and I thought the dialogue was natural. I thought even in that short bit we get to glimpse the characters that the female friendships were described well, also.

I would like to know more about Rob, the sexy, tattooed nerd, though-- more stories about him, please, K?

If you like short erotic stories, give Connections a rea

Dating can be a minefield, especially when you are shy. But who says you have to do the initial getting to know each other face to face. That’s what the internet is for, or at least it is for Casie.
This story is a little slow to start for a short story. But once Rob comes into it, it rings true and moves well.
The writing has a refreshing simplicity to it and the central character, Casie, is as quirky as she is endearing. This is a nice read for those times when you can’t start a whol

I enjoyed this short novella. It was written in a unique format, which was a large part text conversations between Rob & Casie. There is not a great deal of room for character development, but you do get an understanding of why Casie is nervous about meeting new people for first dates (she has had a couple of real doozies that have freaked her out completely). Even over text Casie gets incredibly nervous and second guesses herself too much. Gradually though, she is able to loosen up and even giv ...more

The story was interesting and there were a couple of scenes got fairly steamy. But I feel like there wasn't really enough to the story, especially since the initial connection made between the couple was slightly on the unknown side. The relationship went really fast made especially for someone that’s not supposed to be that type of person. i didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected. I feel it could have been better than it was. It felt like an abrupt cut off. I feel like the Christmas aspect of th ...more

The idea behind this story was interesting. And the couple scenes got fairly steamy. But I feel like there wasn't really enough to the story, especially since the initial connection made between the couple was slightly on the creepy side. The fact that everything else went super fast made it less enjoyable than it could have been. I feel like the Christmas aspect of this story was supposed to make it a bit on the sweet side, but the relationship wasn't well developed enough for that. It is worth ...more

Loved the book, the story was well written and the characters were intriguing. Once I started I could not get enough, from the start till the end I was engrossed I was even on the edge of my seat with twists and turns, lust and passion, strength and happiness with a happily ever after. Do yourself a favor and buy the book you want be disappointed.

A very short quick read. The way it ended abruptly made the story feel incomplete
