Chasing Empty Hearts Chelsea Maria- 3 stars
I’m not sure if it was me, but this story damn near gave me whiplash things happened so fast. That is one of the downsides of short stories, particularly when they’re in an anthology. It’s purposely limited. It was good, but I couldn't keep up.

I really believe had this been fleshed out, it would have been really interesting. I’d like to see this author try out a full-length urban fiction novel.

Love’s Imperfect Pitch A. Jones-2.5-3 stars

This was sooo good!!

It's hard to choose which short story I enjoyed the most. All of then were sexy, sensual, deep, spiritual, and full of love. Normally I dislike short stories because they leave me wanting more. These left me completely satisfied with how each story ended. Maybe short stories aren't bad!!

Loved em all

Wwoooooowwww you all did not come to play at all!

Chasing Empty Hearts × Chelsea Maria: Chris and Siyanda were able to give each other something neither of them ever had. I kinda saw the ending coming tho. Still loved every page.

Love's Imperfect Pitch × A. Jones: I loved Bash and Dya! Bash was everything that Dya was missing and more. I would love a short story or book on Dro and Rina.

Love Me When It Hurts × ShanicexLola: I loved the raw and realness of Krista and Dade's story. Post

I need more.

Great job ladies. Oh how I wish the stories were longer. Each story was beautifully written, and a pleasure to read. 2 of the authors were new to me, but have sparked some interest. Great shorts

Wow! I know we were warned ahead of time that this is an anthology filled with short stories that will leave us wanting more, but dang! I needed just a few more chapters on a couple of these shorts, especially on Chasing Empty Hearts by Chelsea Maria. That ending seriously left me speechless. I don't even know where to begin with how much I enjoyed reading about Cyrus and Siyanda, and to say I wanted more is an understatement! I really hope Chelsea Maria expands on this because it was a great re ...more

Anthologies are always a hit or miss. You're not going to like every single story. Love Is All We Have is okay. There are 5 short stories. I liked only 3 of them. Not bad. My comments as I read each one are below:

Love Is All We Need - Loved this one the most. A lot was packed into a short story. Loved Jamilla and Keanu. This has potential to be a novel. I hope it becomes one.

Meditate on my Heart - Did not like"

Also - "Why is everybody in this book 27 years old???

Great stories

So, Chelsea is just going to do us like that? She had us on the edge of our seats and then left us with our mouths open. Each of these stories were unique and grabbed your attention immediately. I love the topics that were covered as well. My favorite was probably A. Marie’s with Keanu and Jamila. He was the truth and didn’t play about the love of his life. His loyalty to her was beautiful.

Great stories

This anthology started off with a bang. Cyrus definitely made an impression. Each story teaches the reader something, whether it's how to cope with depression, listening to your heart, standing in your own way, the list goes on. Each author displayed their talent in unique ways. Each story was different, but the theme of love and the different faces it takes on was on display very well.

Excellent short stories!!!

I enjoyed every story but they were just getting good and ended. I could've kept reading each one. I guess the best thing that came out of this read is I've found some great new authors to connect with. Great anthologies ladies! I will find and read your full novels!

Y'all Petty

Chelsea, that's messed up (other word), SAVAGE! Ariel, you're a fool. Love Dro's silly self (other word). Shanice, I hate you. Got me all in freaking (other word) feelings. Alexis, where's my soulmate in real life? Tell him I'm looking for him. Amarie, you're the real freak boo lol. I LOVED IT!

I know many people don’t appreciate short stories but I’m not one of those people. As long as they have a beginning, middle, and end, it’s perfect. These were beautiful and amazing!

Well done..

Good job to all the ladies. Each story had its own feeling that pulls you right in. Of course I could go for an update on each but I know that’s neither here nor there. Hopefully there will be more anthologies to come. Like maybe a Christmas special. 😉
