The Long Walk by Tiffany D Jackson
This story features an ex to lovers trope, and this was my favourite in the collection, I loved the way this story was staggered throughout the book too, it was always a short intermission between the other stories, and I adored this one!
Mask Off by Nic Stone
This short story features two former friends who explore the possibility of a relationship after they begin opening up to one another. I found that this story had the most to take away from it as a lot of topics were explored from toxic masculinity, public breastfeeding, homosexuality and stereotypes surrounding this in school and sports, I really liked this story, and I found Nic Stones writing amazing again!
Made To Fit by Ashley Woodfolk
So this story has the instalove trope which is one of my least favourite tropes it just feels so unbelievable, however the author has carried it well in this story, plus I love the fact it was more of a set up from the main characters grandad, I thought that was a great touch, I really liked this sorry more than I thought I would!
All The Great Love Stories..and Dust by Dhonielle Clayton
I love the fact that Dhonielle had the amazing idea to create this book and compile these stories, however this short story is my least favourite, it didn't flow as well as the others in my opinion. This story centres two friends who have grown up together admitting their feelings for one another, and it was a lovely little read, it just didn't have the flow the others did.
No Sleep Till Brooklyn by Angie Thomas
This book centres a good old love triangle and it was a different kind of read from Angie Thomas, who admitted she doesn't really write love stories, but this one was pretty awesome. Plus I love the ending and the feeling of empowerment that the author is giving away in this story, it's completely different to what I was expecting but I loved it all the same!
Seymour and Grace by Nicola Yoon
This story features the chance meet trope, in which Seymour and Grace happen upon in each other when Seymour is Grace's Ryde driver. I really like the conversation the two characters had and I loved the way Grace was made to question herself, another great read.
