Mistaken identity review (Stacey Johnston)
This read had me on the edge of my seat, not knowing which way the story would go. It had twists I wasn’t sure which way they would go and I love that edge in a book.
Olivia was kidnaped by a deranged sleazy deranged man who preyed upon young innocent girls and abused his nephew Eric when he should have loved and cared for him after his parents tragic death years earlier.
Olivia and Eric are in for the fight of their lives when they decide to escape Kenneth’s house that has kept them both hostage for entirely different reasons.
I loved this novella it had the suspense factor that kept me guessing what way the story would go making my heart rate spike in sections of the story.
Will they make it out? Freedom is just outside the door ..... ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 stars
My partner the Brit review (Jessika Klide)
Dirk and piper review
Awesome read! This novella had it all, it was Sexy, Sassy, it had an Alpha and had attitude!
I loved this book about Dirk and Piper! Dirk suffers so much heartache losing his Mum at such an early age but he handled it with such maturity and grace (his mother would be proud).
At one part in the book Dirk makes me lose my s&@t nearly throwing my kindle but lucky for him he quickly redeems himself and makes me fall in love with him all over again..
Piper is one feisty, sassy independent woman! I loved her. Dirk meets Piper by complete accident and they hit it off immediately. Things heat up quickly and soon they are inseparable until a sudden event changes things. Possibly forever.
I loved the chemistry these two had together and loved the fact that true love triumphs! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 stars!!
Destination Wedding review (Lily Ryan)
This is another novella that is HOT, Sexy and ...........
Lily hit this right out of the park. From the very first page I was hooked and couldn’t get enough.
Mandy was in a controlling unloving relationship where she not only lost who she was as a person but had her strength and independence ripped away layer by layer. Then to top it off her as@&le of a Boyfriend cheated and left her.
But that’s where the fun begins, her personality returns and she really begins to live again.
Cam..... wow talk about a BookBoyfriend! I wanted to claim him as MINE the minute he came into the scene! Holy Alpha! This guy was off the charts and believe me when I say he may just be my #1. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟 5 Stars
I loved this story, I don’t know if it was that I was already aware of them from the Siri saga or what but I loved how we got to see Dirk and Piper meet and we get to see them becoming the people that they are. We get to see behind the facade that Dirk puts on and his story is one that will have you alternating between punching him and pulling him close. Giving him a depth I didn’t think possible in such a short story.
This anthology is filled with stories that will take you on journeys through time, if you have ever been to London you will be picturing the places mentioned and if you haven’t it will fill you with a passion to visit even more after reading.
This is a nIfty collection of novellas set in London and covering a range of genres. Because of this, how much any reader will enjoy any given story will depend on how well the reader likes that particular genre. Personally, I tend to like Urban Fantasy and Paranormal stories best, so I was impressed with how much I liked some of the others
My favorite novella was the first one - "Sticks and Stones" by Sarah Buhrman, which happens to be set in the same world as a series of hers I've been reading called "The Runespells" - and which I whole-heartedly recommend if you enjoy urban fantasy. (The first book is "Too Wyrd" if you're interested.) While the story in this collection is set in that world, however, the urban fantasy elements are almost negligible and you don't really need to know anything from the other books to understand and enjoy what's happening here. The characters are well developed and the heroes are relatable. The action is tense and written clearly enough to follow what's happening.
I also really liked the sweet BBW romance, "Postcards From London" which is the next story. It's short, but I liked the characters and how well we got to know them and see them grow even in such a compact tale.
"Rippling the Sheets" is a bit of a thriller. I found the story interesting, but a bit confusing at times. Because all of the stories are set in London, there are a lot of "Britishisms" in the writing, so I'm not sure if the mild confusion was from the use of unfamiliar idioms or if the writer just writes oddly, but I still enjoyed reading it.
In all honesty, I'm not really sure what I thought of the next story, "Mistaken Identity." It's hard to explain my ambivalence towards it without spoiling it, but the interaction between some of the characters under the given circumstances was rather uncomfortable to me. That said, it's well written, and the author managed to surprise me by taking the story in a different direction than I'd expected.
The only real clunker I found in the collection was "The Life and Death of George Weeks" which, while certainty topical, was heavy-handed and obvious. It is also the shortest offering in the collection so I don't feel it diminishes the overall value of quality of the book.
I'm not a fan of explicit sex scenes, so I ended up skipping both the next story "My Partner, The Brit" and the last one, "Destination Wedding."
The remaining tale, "The Cave" also has some sexually explicit scenes, but I was far enough into the story and so captivated by what I was reading that I just skimmed over them so I could enjoy the rest of it - and enjoy it I did. It's a sweet paranormal romance and full of feels. Interestingly, the author chose to include an alternate ending which I personally liked much better, though the actual ending she used is quite touching.
Taken as a whole, I found a lot to like in the anthology and a couple new authors to check out. I recommend checking it out.
