Short Story Friday: The Hot Girl's Friend
The Hot Girl's Friend
by Lisa Scott
from Flirts Vol 1: 5 Romantic Short Stories
It really hadn't occurred to me to find contemporary romance short stories. I've always thought of short stories as being about mystery or horror. So, I was pleasantly surprised when I found this collection.
I like cliches sometimes. There are certain ones I like and I can't help myself. They are like the perfect brownie or a bowl of perfectly buttered popcorn. One of my favorite cliches is that of the "plain" girl, who is most likely brown-haired and described as somewhat chubby, and the awesome sweet guy, who chooses said brown-haired girl over her bombshell blonde friend. After some chasing and misunderstandings, there is a happily ever after.
Is the story deep? No. Am I going to remember the story years from now? Probably not. Do I still enjoy them? Yes. Definitely.
If you like contemporary romance and want an even quicker fix - look no further! Don't like romance? Definitely skip.
