Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

~*~ Obsessed by books copy given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

This read was, I admit out of my usual reading zone but I occasionally like to throw caution the the wind and read something I usually wouldn't! It's a well written thought provoking collection of realistic love stories, each one short and quite poetic. Based often at times on real life scenarios such as holidays, diaries, old photographs and letters often reliving the love and memories of their journey to find one another.

This is a celebration of the different aspects of love and the pure joy people experience when they give and receive the emotion. Each story encapsulates the difficulty of and maintaining the love of your life.They are a touching and beautifully written collection that is very soul searching honestand it's refreshing that not all stories end with a happily ever after.

This is a great collection of pure unadulterated love and romance perfect for anyone who enjoys escaping into the idyllic tranquility of a good old love story.

A four star mushfest.

Random Fun Facts:

1. All the stories in the book are real. Name of places and people have been changed to maintain confidentiality.
2. Metro Diaries is a segment on my blog which consists of stories across genres though this book has only got the romance collection.
3. One of the characters in the book is me and NO I am not telling you which one ;) If you think you have the right answer do write to me and I will let you know how close or far you are.
4. All the stories in the book have not been "ended", they have been brought to conclusion in a manner that there can always be a next part to it and the story can go on with the same characters.
5. If observed closely you will notice the stories are not technically love stories where boy meets girl and they fall in love to live happily ever after for I believe love stories are also about what doesn't happen between the lovers.
