Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Xander Harris's love life is no walk in the park. Unfulfilled crushes. Awkward first conversations. A date who wants you… dead.
There's that whole unrequited love thing he has going for Buffy, let's not even talk about how he feels about his best friend, Willow, and how could anyone forget his love-hate dating relationship with Cordelia!
Let's face it having a Y-chromosome in Sunnydale is never easy. Buffy the Vampire Slayer's friend Xander Harris seems to find more than his share of trouble with the opposite sex. Now, collected for the first time, are three stories based on the teleplays from the hit TV series chronicling Xander's search for love on the Hellmouth.
