This was my first time reading a collection fictional stories written by different authors. I’m not counting those read while in college or high school, because that was unwillingly and the majority of those tended to be nonfiction.
I must admit I was a little wary when I first picked up the book. I was scared it would be disorganized or I would favor one story more than the others and only be interest in that particular story. I’m extremely glad I was proved wrong.
I enjoyed myself while reading Meet Cute. For lack of a better term, it was surprisingly cute. Yes, a little unrealistic and instalove at times, but nevertheless, adorable. Each story was unique in its own way, however, just as refreshing as the story before. They were feel good stories guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face and wanting more.
Speaking of wanting more, multiple of times while read I find myself a little sad that I wouldn’t be able to read about what happened after the characters met each other. They all were set to have great romantic arcs, and I was curious about what their relationships would be like.
It’s hard for me to pick one favorite story, because I truly enjoyed them. But I will say that The Unlikely Likelihood of Falling in Love by Jocelyn Davies was pretty special. The main character’s family was in it for a brief moment, but it was such a cute and hilarious interaction that I really wanted a whole book about Alex’s family and mystery guy on the subway.
I was also surprised with how diverse this book was. That was amazing. There were many different characters with different races, sexual orientations, and interests.
Meet Cute is an adorable read filled with lightheartedness and romances that make you smile. Each story is special in its own way.
