1) NOT what I was expecting. NOT the kind of "love stories" I thought these were going to be. NOT the characters I expected to fall in love with ... but Oh SOOO Good.
2) Some of these short stories need to be full books. Seriously.
"Inertia" is still my favorite story ... oddly followed by "Brand New Attraction".
