    For everyone!!! Great Valentine's Day idea ~~~~

    This book was sent to me Sept 08. I was too "busy" to read it until ... the day after Christmas when everyone was gone. WOW! Should not have waited so long. The book is well written in such an easy to read manner and yet it says volumes about the process of .... life and relationships! No matter who we are, how "successful" or how many "bumps" we may have encountered, we can learn to get ourselves up and .... start.... processing some more. It seems the writers suggest we can learn to make good choices IF we .... process choices frequently enough to discover what does NOT seem to fit us. Both Eric and Kelly have been so real and honest about their ... processing. Very stimulating!! I like the fact that they both come back to the fact that processing takes TIME!!

    A whole latte love for this book

    I love books. I have reviewed business books, a sports trivia book, an autobiography and a book of poetry. Now I am going to venture into an area where I have never gone before. I am going to review We Met at Starbucks: a love story. I may have to retreat to a man cave or watch some football after I do this, but here goes. This is an easy read and the two authors, Eric L. Mott and Kelly Jo Eldredge, use a very easygoing ¿he said, she said¿ format. One could almost imagine the now-married couple sitting at a Starbucks of course relating to you how they met online. The book, which is small and contains only 73 pages, is very entertaining way. Anyone who has every delved into the world of online dating or has thought about it will find the book fun and informative. Anyone who frequents a Starbucks 'and who doesn¿t?' can wonder if the couple at the next table is going through what the two authors did in their quest for true love. The easy explanation for why the book was written is given in what could qualify for a Guinness Book of Records shortest Forward ever. It reads: Whenever we tell people the story of how we met, they usually respond, ¿Oh, you should write a book.¿ Starbucks was chosen by the two online daters for a few reasons. First of all, it is the easiest and most convenient place to meet. The atmosphere there is neutral and low-key and there is no loud music playing. The best reason to pick a Starbucks is that they are everywhere. The male readers will appreciate database programmer and NET developer Eric¿s Rule of Starbucks Proximity. Kelly Jo¿s accounts of some her dates, which she calls experiments, are hilarious. These men ranged from the self-absorbed, the liars, and a wild and crazy guy whose favorite ice cream flavor was vanilla. Her recounting of the dates and her impressions will probably hit home with many who are or were in the dating scene. Kelly Jo also gives a list of advice to future online daters. Read Chapter 13 for the full list of sage musings on the topic. She says to avoid the ones who are checking their own reflection in the rearview mirror for five minutes after arriving in your driveway. She says to watch out for the one whose idea of a great date is pizza and beer, which you provide. Others to avoid include ones who just discovered that email exists. In Chapter 15, the female side of the couple points out common signs to look for to tell whether you are in for a scary date or a good one. It is very insightful. The book is not without its serious side. Eric briefly reflects on how he handled the birth of their stillborn child. Kelly Jo talks very openly about her previous battle with alcohol, how she brought it up in relationships and how Alcoholics Anonymous is and always will be part of her 'and now Eric¿s' life. The women will enjoy how and when Eric proposed to Kelly Jo. The male readers may want to take notes. I don¿t want to spoil that part of the story, so you will have to read the book to find out what happened. The book concludes with a series of thoughts on what the duo discovered along their way to find each other and true love. The words of wisdom seem appropriate for any relationship, maybe even yours. As mentioned, this book is an easy and enjoyable read. It is too bad it is so long until Valentine¿s Day. This little bundle would make a good present for the lady in your life. Guys...it might also work on any occasion along with some flowers as a ¿get out of jail free¿ pass.

    The best love story!

    'We Met at Starbucks' is a funny, touching account of two people falling in love. It restored my faith in true love and I especially liked the way the two main characters took turns telling their side of the story. Wonderful book!!

    Optimistic and Heartfelt

    Easy to read, once you start you won't want to put it down until your done. Gives one a restored commitment in knowing you can have what you want and deserve in life. Makes you want to laugh and then cry and then both at the same time.

    Great quick read

    From the outset, 'We Met at Starbucks' seems like a well written book about dating from 2 unique perspectives. The reality is it's an insightful look at life and how it can be completely ridiculous, funny and strange. And times when it's filled with heartache. A must for anyone who's married, wanting to get married or single.
