Book Description

Bug Stuff...and other stories: THREE hilarious short romantic comedies from sassy writer gal, Vicki Batman

"Just Desserts": a political dinner gone disastrous brings together a reluctant attendee and her handsome seat-mate.

"Bug Stuff": A cute accountant unites with his co-worker to fight a pesky adversary.

"With This Ring": When a wife forgets her little black dress, all turns into something utterly romantic and unforgettable in the end.

What people are saying about Bug Stuff...and Other Stories:

Short in length but long on humor and sass.

If you are looking for some great short stories to read in the carpool line (like me), waiting on the doctor's, Ms. Batman has written the perfect stories for you.

This collection is a nice little escape from everyday life.

Vicki does it again. Gives us the gift of laughter in spunky short stories and three this time!

Her short stories are fun and filled with zany characters that will keep you smiling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short, Sweet and Entertaining March 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I downloaded Bug Stuff and settled in for a good read, surprised when it turned out to be three very short but punchy romantic stories that hit the ground running and stopped just as abruptly. I read them in one, incredibly short, and must say unsatisfactory session that left me wanting more.

A good idea though and I will certainly view Vicki Batman's work as worth looking out for in the future.

This compilation includes a potentially boring dinner where a greedy attendee leaves the heroine hungry, a forgotten dress and an encounter with a cockroach that brings two co-workers together. Short, sweet, engaging and funny. Lovely.

I received an e-copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Reading February 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
When time is on limited supply, read a short story. That’s my mantra and I really enjoyed reading three of them in Bug Stuff and Other Stories.

The first story is Bug Stuff and I loved the opening line in this one and the fact that the heroine admits she’s never heard a man shout help ever before. It’s a cute story about two co-workers who deal with a bug problem in the break room. The dialogue is snappy, the pace fast, and it made me smile.

Second up is Just Desserts which was really well planned out for such a short read. I thought of it as a mini-me romance story with two characters you hoped would find some way to get together before the night was over.

The final story is With This Ring and I loved the humor that Ms. Batman injected into the plot and dialogue. My favorite part was the fact that the heroine thinks one thing and then something wonderful happens to her.

If you’re looking for a short, fun and romantic read, give this trio a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but cute... February 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a collection of three short stories. The first story centers around a water bug. It reminded me of the first time I ever saw one. It was coming out of my bathtub drain and scared the you-know-what out of me! I was quickly schooled in water bugs! These stories are full of humor, and I enjoyed reading them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Characters February 10, 2014

Ms. Batman's characters never fail to make me smile. Her short stories are fun and filled with zany characters that will keep you smiling. As for water bugs...I live in Texas and they are like small dinosaurs still roaming the over populated cities, toddling along like they are on a quest to destroy civilization. Go read the book. It's a good one. And if you move to Texas, bring an exterminator with you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short & Sweet January 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Bug Stuff & other stories is a collection of 3 short stories that are easy to read & finish in one setting. You'll laugh at the antics of coworkers trying to figure out the best pest control. And you'll quickly realize why dessert is the best part of a meal. You'll also see that being a married couple definitely doesn't mean the romance is gone. This collection is a nice little escape from every day life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good old fashioned quickie for the mind January 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
3 quick stories sure to tickle the senses. Short in length but long on humor and sass. From the sexy softie in Bug Stuff, to the charming gentleman in Just Desserts..and finishing with the surprising romantic in With This Ring. It'll keep your interest all the way until the end..then leave you wanting more. If short and sweet is what you like, you will enjoy it. I am usually not a fan of quickies, but this one left me smiling.
