At the Party (#1-3) by Lauren Barnholdt
Maybe novellas aren't for me, but these stories seemed way too short. The length of the stories contributed to another thing I didn't like about this book: the realism, or rather the unrealistic-ness of the stories. And, what is with Lauren Barnholdt and the F word, and the numerous word forms of the term "douche bag"? Like, geesh! Learn some new slang, please! Also, there were a lot of grammatical errors (which seem to run rampant in the majority of Barnholdt's novels)
Anyway, overall the stories are actually pretty cute, and even entertaining, if you can overlook their lengths (not to mention the thus resulting underdeveloped characters) and their grammatical errors.
