The thing about romance; is that it should strike a chord on many levels. The thing about this collection - is that it does. The stories range in experiences, themes and often heart-wrenching anxiety - but one thing that is evident throughout, is the feelgood end results.
The read is easy, especially because you get a quick fix without long and involved plots or story-lines to wade through.
I think this makes for excellent travel companion reads as they are just long enough to fill a gap- and it is the perfect midday break if you are a book addict with a keen taste for sweet, loving and intricately woven romantic reads.
While I will admit that some of the stories were too short, and others felt a little rushed.... I wasn't disappointed by any of them.
It is not a collection you'd want to try and read in one sitting either - because of the diversity of styles and presentation, it is best to look at each story on its own merits, and give it the just deserve attention without comparisons to one another.
I hope more people will grab their copies, it is worth the read. I will make sure to check out some of the other work of the mentioned authors!
Thank you again, Tom, for making me aware of this, and of course, for participating!

Vince and Nicole have a history together since their families are in business together. When Vince returns home, he’s not the same guy, but Nicole is still very much interested in being with him. The story just felt rushed to me and the characters were saying/doing the same things over and over. The story lacked something for me but I imagine others will enjoy it.
Feathers by T.E. Hodden

This story had too many characters and was very hard for me to follow. It felt like there weren’t any real introductions and I should have just known what was happening and why.
A Manly Man by Jean Young
4 out of 5 stars
Arabella and Braxton should never have been together, but fate interferes and they find each other. There were some word choice issues for me in this story, but overall the characters were so likable and the story was easy to follow and made me want to keep reading. Sometimes I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy the story, but the author came through and really gave me a story I enjoyed.
Goin Home by Philip Lisagor

This was a super short story and I never felt like I had a chance to get into it or invest in the story. Not a winner for me unfortunately.
The Promise by London Saint James
5 out of 5 stars
I was ready to give up on this anthology, but Ms James gave me a story I couldn’t leave alone. Quinn and Veronica are absolutely my favorite couple out of this book. This story has all the best things of any novel and is condensed down for a novella, but doesn’t feel like anything is missing. I enjoyed the way Quinn and Veronica interactd and the realness of their hesitations and actions.
Promises Kept by Teri Rochenski

Though I’m not typically a fan of “historical” romances, this story was different for me. It was short and yet meaningful. The characters were ones I felt connected to and enjoyed reading about. I believe that Walt & Joan are what most military couples are like - even today - and I loved getting to know them. Even the extended “cast” included people I felt I wanted to know more about.
