I can't. I'm speechless. I have no idea what to say about this. I always see your work on ADoR but I never read it since they always seem really long. I kept this story bookmarked for about 3 days and after reading it, I don't know what to say. I'm really blown away. The intimacy and feelings are really true. I can see Ritza falling in love with Caden; vice versa. I don't know what to say so I'm out.

It's cute and not quite cliche and I absolutely love Ritza. She's a character that I definitely relate to, and that makes the story all the more enjoyable. Thank you!

Hey Jackie! Your story has been added to the "Oneshot" category of A Drop of Romeo :) Here's the review (well, half of it, haha):
Ali Thinks: It can be said that a new love can sprout from a no-strings-attached relationship. For Ritza, the saying is true... just not in the way you'd think.
After a party one night, Ritza (like pizza) and Brian, who practically looks like a god, develop a relationship— a casual, sexual relationship. However, it's Brian's roommate, Caden, who Ritza spends her time with for hours whenever her and Brian are finished with each other.
This one-shot isn't exactly what one would call short, as it almost hits 12,000 words, but it's so interesting that of the many times I've read The Benefits of Being Friends, I only recently noticed how long it is.
Ritza and Caden's relationship starts off as her wanting to kick him in the shin, and that's only because she's too nice to go any higher. But as Ritza and Brian continue their meaningless tryst, Ritza and Caden rapidly fall into a routine, which pushes them into the boundaries of friendship, and even past that, to the point where they have the makings of being even more.
As I mentioned before, I have read The Benefits of Being Friends more than once (more than ten times, actually). If you've ever read anything by thenifoundfivedollars, you'll understand why. She is absolutely brilliant and her stories are even more so. And if you haven't read anything by thenifoundfivedollars... well, what are you waiting for, go on!

This is definitely a favorite. Yes, it was very long but sure enjoyable at every moment. I am glad to see that she is changing and letting other people in, such as her friend and Caden. I do agree with Caden that she deserved better. I really like Caden, I think he is an awesome guy. It is funny how they first met and then afterwards. I wonder how Brian would feel if he saw her come for Caden. I know . . . I know . . . he doesn't care about her. But still . . . I think it can come in as a pride factor.

I loved the end with him outlining his schedule. That just made me giggle and wish I had a Caden!

Very cute. I loved it. Very rare in stories does the girl fall for the roommate when she comes home with the other!

Let me start by saying, I HATE oneshots.
No one does them well, and I just cant see anything real when you only use a page to mold your story.
but this was... beyond amazing. Easily one of the best things I have read on fictionpress... and this deserves WAY more reviews.
