Some nice stories in here. I bought it to read the story which inspired the movie Secretary. I enjoyed it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Behaviour, Terrible Book 6 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase
I had seen the movie The Secretary, which was inspired by the story of the same name which comes in this book. I was really excited that it was a book of short stories about unconventional relationships, and the title certainly sounded promising. However I was really, really dissapointed. This book is un-sexy, conventional and frankly, boring. This is basically a book of dull conversations between people, which no real action or desire the book promises. In one story it details a woman having dental surgery, really, do we really need 3 pages of that?! I actually now regret buying this book, the one star is only for the short story of the Secretary, which is the only story that delivers some actual feeling. Avoid.
