    1. This review can be found at Brief Encounters Reviews.This is a very sweet story, with a typical nerdy shy character which could pass for a YA as it’s sweet with no explicit sex. Derrick is killing time waiting for his last customers to leave the coffee shop he works at so he can get home early for a change, when a last-minute client arrives. He nearly has a heart attack when he realizes it’s Rory, the cool confident outgoing boy he’s been crushing on at university. He’s certain that popu [...]


    2. Noooooo!! where is the rest of the story??? I will never learn my lesson, why I keep buying and reading short stories I will never know.What a wonderful story, freaking disappointment that is too short. It was released in 2011, so there is not chance to find a sequel.@#$%^&*&** that's all I can say.


    3. What a cute story:) And especially in comparison to several other stories I read lately. The writing was wonderful, I totally felt with Derriick and there was a very good balance between thinking and acting. What kept me from giving 5 stars? Simple: It was too short.


    4. Cute short, Derrick a freshman has a crush on Rory, but since he's painfully shy, it seems pretty hopeless.Then one evening Rory comes into the coffeeshop, that Derrick works at, and all of a sudden maybe it wasn't just wishful thinking on Derrick's part. :) I would read more about these two !



    5. Review written for MM Good Book Reviewsmmgoodbookreviews.wordpress/Ah, this little short was too sweet and adorable. It was all about this freshman college kid named Derrick who is extremely shy. He’s been having daydreams, night-dreams, and all sorts of fantasies about Rory a very cute and attractive guy he keeps seeing on campus but never had the courage to actually go and talk to. He’s wanted to ask him out forever, or would have asked him if he ever found it in him to overcome his shynes [...]


    6. This is a really nice, cute short story. Derrick and Rory are both college students, Derrick a first year engineering student, Rory a second year nurse student. Both of them believe in commitment, they don’t want to play the field, they want a serious relationship and boyfriend and stuffs. Problem is that Derrick is painfully shy, and Rory isn’t able to read him: Rory is the twink, cute and pretty, smaller in body than Derrick and he is used to be approached not viceversa. He likes Derrick, [...]


    7. Very cute/sweet fluff. Derrick is an adorably shy goof who has been crushing on a fellow student who doesn't know he exists and he can't even work up the nerve to say hi to the guy, especially since he has been having erotic dreams about him. But as it turns out, sexy, confident Rory has been crushing on him too. Watching Derrick fumble was cute and there were little glimpses to show that Rory wasn't always confident either. It was nice that Rory wanted to take things slow and get to know Derric [...]


    8. 4.25 starsDuring a break at work today, I re-read this little gem of a short story. Derrick is a shy, reserved college student working as a waiter when the man of his dreams walks into his diner. As the two men talk, the sparks fly and by the time Derrick's shift ends, what will happen?What struck me about this story was how utterly sweet it was. Not sugary sweet, but just enough to put a smile on your face and rooting for Derrick to get a date with Rory. The only thing I wished was that the sto [...]


    9. 3.75 stars rounded to 4 - this is a lovely short story about Derrick who is a very shy barista, freshman in college who has never had a date. He has a crush on a guy named Rory - who happens to be his last customer one night at the coffee shop. Beautifully written - captures the shy awkwardness of that first meeting and conversation. Rory was so cute too! I can't wait to read more from this author - hope that there is a novel coming soon??


    10. Pender's stories keep getting better and better. This is a super cute story. Rory and Derek are 2 great characters, and I was really rooting for them both. My only complaint is that I wanted more. The story was way too short. Looking forward to more from Ms. Mackie!


    11. Sweet story about two guys taking a chance on love. Derrick's shyness was endearing and Rory was a perfect gentleman. Very cute.
