Candace by Michelle Miller

By Pamelascott

Is there any chance of a second date? That all depends on what a woman and a man are willing to invest in the first, in this quick-witted short story of a perfectly equitable modern romance.

After ten years of bad blind dates, Candace is having a hard time believing Patrick is so spot-on. He's sharp, handsome, and kind-her mind can't help racing to where it all will lead. Then the check arrives. It's time to get real.

Candace is part of The Fairer Sex, a collection of sexy, satirical, and sometimes harrowing short stories that explore the question: "What do women want?" The answer is different for every woman, but each can be read or listened to in a single sitting.


[It was their first date, and it was going so well]


(Amazon Original Stories, 14 February 2019, ebook, 12 pages, ebook borrowed from @AmazonKindle #PrimeReading)



I usually enjoy the short reads from Amazon Original Stories. I was a bit disappointed with this one. The story itself is quite fun, a satire of modern life and dating and deciding who pays for what. The story is light and airy. The main issue is that it's very limited the kind of story to appeal only to straight women. What happened to diversity? It's a nice story but has no real depth.
