Book 2 (Run by Emma Barry) was also amazing. I was reading the sample, which stopped in the middle of this story, and I basically bought it mainly because I wanted to finish it so bad!
I'm conflicted about book 3 (The Rogue Files by Stacey Agdern). It was written well, and the story felt like it should be all intrigue and suspense, except that most of the intrigue fell flat for me. It was written in almost abstract way, like the author scratched only the surface of the political crapshoot, but the reader is supposed to become immersed in it despite the cryptic, non-descript writing. I don't know, maybe it's because I'm not interested in politics on that level, so maybe someone who is wouldn't be bothered by the lack of depth and exposition? I felt like this book was supposed to be The Big Gun in the collection, a Newsroom meets Jason Bourne-type crowd pleaser. Unfortunately, it fell way short for me.
After the disappointment of book 3, i struggled to get into the rest of the remaining stories. Book 4 (Coming Up Rosa by Kelly Maher) was a good read, but the build-up between the two MCs felt rushed. At least I felt like I was back on solid ground, with the #resistance theme explored in a way that didn't make me feel like I'm 3 steps behind.
Book 5 (The Sheriff & Mr. Devine by Amy Jo Cousins) was the main reason I knew about this anthology, because Amy Jo Cousins is an author I admire and I love her MM books. This was a great story with awesome characters, and its only flaw is that it's too short. I also love that 1) this book is about 2 men (ie. gay romance) amidst a collection of straight couples, and 2) Amy can write #resistance with the best of them, and sometimes she does so in a way that overshadows everything else, but not this time. The theme is more subtle in this book (but not any less important!), and I just wish we could see the two MCs actually go on a first date! As I said, too short, but satisfying enough to work as a short in a collection of shorts.
Last but not least, in book 6 (Good Men by Tamsen Parker) I had trouble connecting with the main guy, who unfortunately, was also the sole narrator (first person POV) of the book. The girl rocked my world, though, and I appreciated the way the author brought in some realism in the intimate scenes, so ultimately I decided I enjoyed it enough to ignore the slightly longwinded inner monologues of a guy who doesn't seem to have a lot going for him (except that he's famous... of course), and despite the fact that the whole reason he changed his mind and went against everything he initially thought he wanted, was a very flimsy reason at best. But it was an entertaining story, and some of the other couples in his band intrigued me (they clearly had their own stories already told, and I'm tempted to go read those books now).
After all is said and read, I give this collection a solid 4* and my recommendation, especially if you enjoy romance AND people standing up for what is right (#resistance!).
I might be drawing fire saying this, but I treat everyone equally. I don’t care about gender, skin color, or religion, or height. I don’t ever care if my friends have a different political view than I do (mine keeps shifting, btw, I’m annoying even myself). So while I understand and support the struggles of anyone repressed for who they are, I just wish a story would be a story. I keep wishing that IRL I’d get to live in a time where race, gender, religion and what not is not the key factor in a story (good or bad). I just want people to be treated and regarded as people. If they’d done something wrong or right, talk about their actions. Don’t excuse them (again, good or bad) by characteristics that condone oppression. So in this case I don’t want to judge a story or a situation by the skin color of a character and the religion of the other. So yes, the story is sweet, but the constant talk about the VP’s gender and skin color and her lover’s religion? Not for me.
The second story was much more my speed. It showed beautifully who should get into politics. It showed how one goes about doing what’s right. Politically, socially and personally. The only thing missing for me there was the relationship. It went from 0 to 100 in a second, with almost no in between.
The third story was confusing, to be honest. I felt like there was much talk about doing what’s right and exposing corruption, but I didn’t understand what the corruption was. Not even getting into details, just understand the concept of what was going on. I was missing the romance, or whatever it was that should have been wrapping the resistance story.
Now, the fourth story was lovely. It beautifully stressed the issue with medical insurance and the need for government assistance, as well as standing by core values of taking care of family, friends and community. Of social responsibility, and corporate ethics. And there was a “kind of” second chance romance woven throughout. It was very sweet.
At first, I wasn’t sure where the resistance in the fifth story shows, and then it stuck me. The little old ladies! Or so I thought. But when the issue of the gay librarian came to light in a small town with ancient town board members, I got it. And while the sheriff and the librarian flirt endlessly, Cousins snuck in the issue of resistance from within. It was very cute.
I was most looking forward to Tamsen Parker’s contribution and was not disappointed. I loved the idea of expanding the LtG stories from the Ice Games series, and Benji and Jordan are going to be epic. Can’t wait for their actual story. Parker touched a very difficult and unfair topic where immigration laws are affecting children, and I do with this is the first thing to be resolved. Add to that her special way of writing sexy times, and this is a winner.
Overall rating for this compilation would be 4 stars
In Her Service - Suleika Snyder - This is a quick read and a little short for me. I wanted to know more detail about Letty and Shahzad. Their love already existed at the beginning of the story, but I loved his loyalty and devotion to Letty. I also enjoyed how they disregarded others opinions considering they were in the public eye.
Run - Emma Barry - Both Maddie and Adam are strong characters. I loved Maddie's honesty, commitment, and steadfastness. I felt for his indecision because of his past experiences.
