5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Read for All Occasions February 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Since Anthologies are short stories, I really can't do an in-depth review on each one without ruining the whole plot. So, in honor of "short" stories, I am going to summarize my initial reaction to each story from In His Eyes in 5 words!

Surprise Surprise by Stacey Wallace Benefiel:
What a great Valentines date!

First Kiss or First Kill by C.K. Bryant:
Medicine Mix-up had me laughing.

Shattered by Ali Cross:
She better love him back.

Before by Jessie Harrell:
Who would turn down Eros?

The Qualm Before the Storm by Karen Amanda Hooper:
Just kidnap her and leave.

Unspeakable by S.R. Johannes:
Full of mystery, major cliffhanger!

In the Beginning by Katie Klein:
I want my own guardian!

A Chance Encounter by Cheri Lasota:
Where is this girl going?

Family Bonds by Heather McCorkle:
Definitely worth breaking the rules.

Getting Closer by Lisa Nowak:
A sensitive guy, how refreshing.

Precalculus by Cory Putman Oakes:
Math SHOULD be that exciting!

The Almost Assassin by Laura Pauling:
Who would taze a mime?

Mind Games by Susan Kaye Quinn:
Don't they believe in privacy?

By The Firelight by Elle Strauss:
Do NOT mess with Casey.

A Very Alien Valentine's Day by Magan Vernon:
Aliens have some serious class.

Aligned by RaShelle Workman:
Makes saving souls look easy.

So there they are, my initial reactions. I hope this sparks some curiosity as to exactly what these stories are about. What? Need more convincing? Fine. Since you asked so nicely, I will share my thoughts on this anthology as a whole. Ahem...

3.0 out of 5 stars This YA/Teen fiction March 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wish it had been clearer that this was an anthology of stories about 14-18 year old hero characters. Also mostly paranormal. It wasn't bad, just not my thing.

my mini review for By the Firelight by Elle Strauss...
Had I impressed her in the same way she'd blown my socks off?" Loved that sentence in the story.
I first fell in love with Nate in Clockwise back in November. But getting Nate's POV in By the Firelight (short story from anthology In His Eyes) was so much fun. He had a few snarky comments, that he kept to himself of course, in fear of getting his head knocked off by Casey. We get to see what he was feeling and thinking about his first time travel trip back to 1860, unlike in Clockwise. Nate is not sure if Casey is crazy, the guys are punkin' him, or if what's happening is really real. Poor guy! Little does he know this is only the beginning. Even though this was a short story, Strauss did a fabulous job! I was sad that it ended so quickly.

my mini review for Mind Games by Susan Quinn...
Mind Games is the prequel, from the anthology In His Eyes, based off the book Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn, which I absolutely adored. I loved Kira in Open Minds...but getting Raf's POV in Mind Games was a real treat. I really feel more for him than I originally did. In this short story Raf is battling the voices of his friends and classmates while struggling to find a way to ask Kira to the Gamesdance. But when Jessica, a girl interested in Raf, threatens to hurt Kira, Raf must decide if asking Kira is really worth it.
Quinn what are you doing to me? What a tease! Oh Raf, yeah I am in need of more of him. He is too sweet and too kind. This anthology was a fabulous idea to peek into the minds of the guys from some of our favorite stories. Great little short story. I adore you Quinn and cannot wait for Closed Hearts to be released.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a great read! I love a Male POV. February 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Reading this anthology was fun! It was like speed dating - spending a few minutes with each story and deciding if you like the storyline, characters, the author's writing style and so forth, then deciding if you'd like to pursue it further. Wait. I've never done the speed dating thing, maybe there's some unpleasantness associated with that. Since it was completely enjoyable, let me find a better analogy. Okay, I've got one! It was like going to Baskin Robbins and trying 16 of their 31 flavors. Yeah, you might like some better than others, but THEY"RE ALL ICE CREAM . . . . . WINNING! Plus, you can have them all in one sitting if you want (why does everything lead to food, with me?).

If you've read any of the featured books from these authors, then you know their characters. You already know the basics, and yet there's still something new and interesting to learn about them. Also, a male perspective for the whole read, that's a bonus. Throw a romantic theme on top of that and you've got the recipe for an extra special Valentines Day treat! Who says no to that??

Like I mentioned earlier, some flavors stood out. The short stories (other than those associated with books I've already reviewed) that pulled me in and whispered, "Gotcha! You're mine. Read my book or you'll never sleep again" were: IN THE BEGINNING (The Guardian) by Katie Klein, PRECALCULUS (The Veil) by Cory Putman Oakes and MIND GAMES (Open Minds) by Susan Kaye Quinn. They get my AWESOME FIRST IMPRESSION Award. But, trust me, ALL the stories are good and piqued my interest. I'm sure I'll eventually get around to reading every book on the list. So, now it's your turn to check it out and see which ones end up making YOUR list of best first impressions.

I recommend this to everyone who enjoys reading YA, don't pass it up!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not me.
I liked the book, but you have to read the origonal story first. If you do not, the story and characters are confusing. I don't recomend this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring
Didn't even make it through all of the stories. Characters showed little depth and that, of course, made it hard to relate.

My favorite of them all is the first one because I am already familiar with it and I read and I a sore the Zellie Wells trilogy. This is a cool book full of short love stories.

I enjoyed the majority of the sneak peaks in this book, beside the interesting new perspective, as all of the stories were written through the eyes of the male protagonist. Read more
