If you've read Ginger Scott's How We Deal With Gravity, you're somewhat familiar with Claire and Cole, but the possibility of a romance between the two might come as much of a surprise to you as it did to me. If you haven't read that book, it's okay, you'll meet them now in this short story of a man and a woman who've served as integral parts of each other's lives for years, but who've never been brave enough to speak up about what they truly want.
In such a brief narrative, Ginger Scott delivers a beautiful account of friendship, longing and unrequited love. It's so rare that I'm completely satisfied by such a short story because it's near impossible to pack such deep emotion into so few words. Ginger Scott does just that, however, brilliantly illustrating the silent longing of a bartender/rancher for the behavioral therapist that's only ever seen him as a friend.
Ginger Scott's writing, as always, is breathtaking and her storytelling in this short is full of heart but laced with an edge of pain. Angst, heartbreak, lust, friendship and the sweetest kind of joy all find themselves woven together in this perfect little package. I See You is a short and blissfully sweet happily ever after, a delicious little taste of what I hope to find in the rest of the Love Happens anthology.
I have read only a few of the stories so far and have been blown away with how wonderfully satisfying they have been. The stories were intriguing and engaging, I cared for the characters, and the sex scenes were hot, sexy and titillating!
I started with How We Met by Claudia Burgoa This was the beginning of Willow and Hunter's story. They have a chance meeting one night where Hunter helps a distraught Willow. He never finds out her name and has never forgot her. They surprisingly meet again weeks later. Hunter wants a normal loving relationship and Willow intrigues him. Willow has been hurt and is cautious, but Hunter has awoke the numbness inside her. They are tricked into a date by Willows sister and this is the wonderful beginning of their love story. I fell for them both and am so intrigued by their story. I can't wait for more!
* All of Me by Jeanne McDonald - This is Shadow Kingsley and Lucian Brittons story. Shadow is a talented artist on the cusp of huge success. She and Lucian, a gifted musician, meet at one of her art shows and are attracted to each other. She convinces him to model and allow her to paint a portrait of him. They inspire one another and are the perfect combination of art and music. This short story had it all, witty banter, deep emotion, heartbreaking conflict and fiery passion. I loved this romance!
* When Love Blooms by Melanie Moreland - This is Ethan and Lily’s love story. Ethan visits the floral shop to get something for his mother. He meets free spirit, Lily, and the sparks fly instantly between them. He finds creative ways to visit her store because he can't stay away. I loved this refreshing, fun, and sexy romance!
It also includes Some Kind of Love By Melanie Harlow which I had read earlier and loved! It was funny, sexy, heartbreaking and heartwarming. Jillian Nixon is right where she wants to be. She is a successful Pediatrician, she's healthy, has a nice condo, and has a great relationship with her family. But when she see's how happy and in love her sisters are tho, she realizes just how lonely she really is. She hasn't had any luck with recent dates and is afraid she waited too long to make a relationship a priority. When she is about to bolt from her sister's wedding after one too many rude questions about her single status, she runs smack into the sexy wall that is Levi Brooks, her unforgettable one night stand from college. They haven't seen each other since but neither has ever forgotten that erotic encounter. Levi is charming, honest and the single father of a special needs child. His son Scotty is the love of his life and he isn't looking for anything complicated. But when Levi and Jillian crash into each other, their old chemistry is reignited. They are desperate for each other and are combustible between the sheets. But finding the time without taking away from the needs of his son is hard. Levi is scared and feels guilty and unworthy of having it all. Jillian is all about family and feels hurt when Levi keeps her separate from his. I love Levi, he is such a great Dad, friend and lover. I could really feel his frustration and struggle to do the right thing for everyone. Jillian is funny, kind and loving and is the perfect match for both Levi and Scotty if they would only let her in. This story had such a natural flow as it uncovered so many layers and depth of each character. I really felt like I understood them and their decisions and couldn't help falling in love with them. This is a sweet, sexy and emotional story that shouldn't be missed!
I have thoroughly enjoyed the books I've read so far and am sure the rest will be just as sexy, romantic and engaging. This is a must have anthology when you are looking for a quick sexy romance story and also help a worthy cause!
The stories that stood out to me the most were:
When Love Blooms by Melanie Moreland
This story really made me laugh. Ethan is very to the letter, so when he stops in a flower shop to get flowers for his mother, he is not quite sure what to make of the flower shop owner Lily, who is as free-spirited as the come. Having a structured life isn't always the way to find your happiness.
Beautiful Baby by Emery Jacobs
A beautiful and heartfelt story of a couple rushing to the hospital to have their first baby and the challenges that come along with it. Having my own child, these stories always tug at my heartstrings and bring back memories of when my daughter was born.
I See You by Ginger Scott
Cole has loved Claire since he first laid eyes on her years ago, but Claire has no clue. He's never told her his feelings and she sees Cole as a good friend. Oh, did I mention Cole is a hot cowboy?
All of Me by Jeanne McDonald
I was so drawn in by this story about an two artists - one a young, up and coming artist and the other a devilishly handsome pianist with blue eyes you want to start into all day. I felt so much emotion from this story, the connection between the characters and their journey. A great storyline packed into a short story.
First Shot At Love by Lisa B. Kamps
Lisa never disappoints. I love that she wrote a new story based on characters from her Baltimore Banners book, Breakaway. Find out how JP & Emily meet and their romantic encounters mixed in with the fact that he is a famous hockey player. Never a dull moment in this one. I need to read Breakway now to see how their story continues.
All Work and No Play by Mia Kayla
I am the biggest sucker for billionaire stories, especially when his love interest ends up being his wife and co-worker. Kent doesn't appear to have a problem flirting with Beth at work, but she wants to be taken seriously by her co-workers and superiors, so they know she isn't just there because she's married to the boss' son. I loved this story, some good laughs and Kent is off the charts, super sexy.
Kissing for Keeps by Molly McLain & Rhonda James
This is in the top of my favs in this collection. So many good laughs in this story. Luke needs a date for his sister's wedding, so his mom, who is also a romance author, isn't bothering him about his love life. Who better to ask than, Mia, the waitress that waits on him a few times a week at a local diner. He is not looking for anything serious and she just wants to make sure she has money for her rent and car repairs. Mia is feisty, I loved her! And of course the story wouldn't be complete without a surprise house guest.
Some Sort of Love by Melanie Harlow (which isn't just a short story, it's the full novel.)
Amazing story about a single father, Levi, whose son is autistic. When he runs into Jillian, a one-night stand from college, he is struck with a need to be with her. His son has always come first and he really struggles with realizing he deserves love and happiness outside of being a father. Jillian is a pediatrician, so she is always focused on her work, never has time for relationships or love. Reconnecting with Levi changes all of that with his sexy dirty talking, that he is a dad, makes him even more attractive to her. She is understanding of him need to put his son first, but when it comes down to it, is she willing to sacrifice her heart to him when he can't give his fully to her? One of Melanie's best books!
