Loved the story. Lots of background is given and the story flows nicely for being short. It isn't rushed.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
As a whole I enjoyed this collection, this is perfect for anyone needing a few happily ever afters. As a whole I give this this collection 4 Stars.
A few of the stories fell flat for me, I would have rather read them as full length novels, with more story and character building. I found a few editing errors as I traversed the pages.
Artificial Tears by Charmaine Pauls - This story was cute, but it didn’t grab my attention like I had hoped. The romance could have been built up a bit more for my liking. Overall it was still a cute and well written read, but I think it would have been much better as a full length novel. 3 Stars
The Spark by Ellyse Roberts - What a great debut by Ellyse, I wouldn’t hesitate to read more about Anna Claire and Ethan. There were some things left tangled in the midst of the short story, things I would like to see resolved. 4 Stars
Proposal Unexpected by Elena Kane - The characters were believable, the narrative detail was spot on. I was a little disappointed I flew through this read so quickly. 4 Stars
One Perfect Moment by Tara Fox Hall - I think this was one of my favorites in the anthology, for content and readability alike. This is the perfect short story, one of those lifetime movie moments. 4 Stars
Running Late by Caroline Andrus - Caroline Andrus did a great job, I loved the way she was able to build the characters and story, all in a few short minutes (in the story). It is the perfect short story that still packs the punch of a full novel. 4 Stars
Cappuccino Dreaming by Louise Redmann - I wasn’t exactly fond of this story, not because it wasn’t well written or entertaining, because it was both of those things. I didn’t like the male lead. Louise writes in an almost lyrical way, entwining great detail into her tale. 4 Stars
Love Weavers by Katie Stephens - I absolutely loved this story, I am a huge fan of paranormal romance and this hit my sweet spot, it held my attention all the way through. 5 Stars
On her way to meet with her boyfriend, Will, Paige reflects upon their seven-year relationship and prepares herself to be dumped. Meanwhile, Will has something else in mind.
This was an amazing shot story. Even though it was short it kind of covered everything and there was no moment of puzzlement in my mind. I loved their love and knew what was coming even though Paige didn't ;) It was a very sweet romantic story. I kind of loved that moment when they both first met!
