Thoughts: This was a collection of sweet love stories, some YA, some adult, that was put together to benefit Save the Ta-tas. All of the seven stories in it were a light as a summer breeze, but the two that stood out the most were Jennifer Lane's "Swim Recruit" and Nicki Elson's "Sway". "Swim Recruit" was an excellent YA contemporary (and the only story that did not take place in summer) that with some tough topics in a short amount of time, but never felt overburdened. "Sway" could almost be put on the opposite end of the spectrum. It concerned an elderly lady who is mysteriously serenaded every night and her two sisters who want to get to the bottom of their younger sister's new dreamy look. The end was a complete surprise and made a delightful story simply perfect.
