Oh....where to start...I loved both stories in this anthology, but I didn't doubt that I would since it's two of my favorite authors.

Exiled, by Maya Banks was awesome! Again, Maya brought me to tears, in less than 210 pages! At first I was a little creeped out by Xander's infatuation with Talia, but it's all good. And honestly there were several occasions when I thought to myself - how can a PRINCE/KING of an entire country be such an idiot. But let's be honest - I would have happily run away to that island with Xander and his 3 cohorts FOREVER! So delicious. A HOT HOT HOT story that I enjoyed VERY much. All of these men treat Talia kindly, gently and cherish her with all their hearts....what woman wouldn't want that??
So....as long as D/s AND group sex/menage doesn't bother you, run out and read it - HOLY HOTNESS!!

And Sway - Oh Lauren Dane - I LOVE YOU! And I love your characters!
So, if you've read her other series - The Brown Siblings (AWESOME AWESOME!! If you haven't read it, add it to your TBR pile immediately!!) - you have a little head start on this one because we already met a lot of the key players in the last Brown Siblings book. And honestly, I loved them then, so of course I was chomping at the bit to get this book! I am a fan of D/s, so for me, Levi was pretty HOT. And Daisy's sexual submissiveness is beautiful. It's great when a girl can be strong and sassy outside of the bedroom, but beautifully submissive in. I love how quickly the spark ignited between these two and just kept on burning. And man - the sex is hot between these two. I just loved everything about this story and can't wait for 'Tart' to come out....I'm so looking forward to Lauren's new spin off from the Brown Siblings - it's going to be HOT HOT HOT!

Exiled by Maya Banks

This was a DNF for me. The setup is this: a 22 year old virgin feels as though she has to fulfill an agreement she made with a Prince four years ago. He stepped in, paid for her mother's cancer treatments and put her through college. The deal is, when he calls for her, she must go to him and obey his every command. He summons her and she goes thinking she has no choice. The Prince, Xander, plans to share her with his three best friends, something they often do. Honestly, the story already lost me by about page 40. The heroine came off as being very weak and timid and I'm supposed to believe that because of this agreement, she'll do whatever is asked of her? I just couldn't buy it. Maybe as the story goes she gains some confidence and a stronger personality, but it wasn't enough at the start to make me curious enough to find out. 1/5 stars (202 pgs)

Sway by Lauren Dane

Lauren Dane has a way of writing relationships and friendships that draws me in every single time and makes me feel like these characters are my own friends. They feel genuine and come across on page as such. It was this was with her Brown Siblings series and she's done it again with Daisy and her tight knit group of friends all living on Bainbridge Island, outside of Seattle. Daisy is twenty-four years old and an incredibly driven person. She's an artist and helps run a gallery with her Grandmother, she does numerous odd jobs, mainly to help out her friends. She's smart, funny, caring and acts very mature. The maturity is a huge key because it helps her relationship with Levi, a forty year old attorney work.

I have been looking forward to this book since I heard it was coming out. These are my two favorite authors. I rarely pay for a book especially $9.99 but this book was worth it.

Exiled by Maya Banks

This book was very hard to get into. I only give it 3.5 stars. I almost put it down 10x and from other reviews it looks like others did. This was a very odd romance story. Xander is the prince of an island off France, he sees Talia, an 18 year old working in the palace and falls in love with her. He finds out she gave up going to college to pay for her mothers cancer treatments. He pays for her to attend college, live in an apartment with monthly allowances and pays for the best treatment to save her mother. In return she has to live with him for 6 months under a contract to do anything he pleases in bed. She agrees doing anything to save her mothers life. The book starts 4 years later, Talia is a 22 year old virgin and finished college, her mother is in remission. Xander has been exiled from his country after some civil wars, he is hiding out on a beautiful island and he "summons" Talia to finally come to him. Talia has no idea what to expect, she shows up on the island after signing a 6 month contract. She is than told by Xander that he plans to share her with his 3 best friends / security (Garon, Sabastion, Nico). Talia is stunned. The whole 1st part of the book is about her feeling like a mistress/whore even though all 4 men cherish her, spoil her and are gentle with her she just doesn't know what is real or fake. There is no love, passion or romance even though over the next 3 months she spends time with all 4 men and falls in love with all of them. As Talia says in the book, it feels too clinical.
