This is a follow up to Dear Committee Members, which I loved. Fitger has been elevated to department chair and is struggling to bring the English department together in order to survive the incursion of the Economics Department.
Dear Committee Members was very nearly sublime in its satire and sneaky humanity; this one ... not so much. The Shakespeare Requirement is a standard narrative (as opposed to the epistolary form of DCM), and while still funny and heavily satirical, it just falls flat. It also lacks any clear plot, or perhaps it would be more accurate to say there's no clear story arc. I suppose there's a climax, but it's not really much of one, and there's very little to no emotional punch.
All of this sounds like I'm tearing a strip off the book and that's not my intention; I enjoyed it for the humor and the connection to the characters - I never found myself bored or wanting to put it down. It just didn't have the same grip as its predecessor and if asked, I'd definitely recommend Dear Committee Members but would likely suggest skipping this one, or at least preparing for it to be a different read altogether.

Title is Easy Love.
Omg !What a great story we loved it from beginning to end. The story was tragic and intense and edgy and had a love story like no other.Secrets Secrets nothing but secrets.
We loved the characters of the story they were and electric bunch. Katerina aka Kitten was feisty and determined and sweet,kind and loving and take no crap kind of girl who wasn't afraid to speak her mind.
Ash was hard and dominate and a -hole most of the time but, accepted that part of himself and he was little bit broken and waded down by secrets.
The story was filled with drama and romance and a whole lot of sadness.One minute you were laughing the next you were crying.Ember we loved him he made us laugh and well as cried also he was the light to the darkness that was his twin Ash.
A well written story that had us engrossed from the very first pages and we fell head over heels in love with each and every character.
