Favorite: Bliss, by Annika Steele
The Research Trip - Christina Rose Andrews
5 stars -- one of the best stories in the anthology. I love that this features a married couple in their 30s-40s with a guy I'd like to take home and have tie me up. Frank is the best MMC in the anthology, he's funny, considerate, and sexy all at the same time. A great start to book.
Summer Nights - Ariel Bishop
4 stars - This gets one additional star just for the dog. While the story was okay, parts of it were clunky. However, since this is nestled between the two best stories in the anthology, I may also be judging this harshly.
Irresistible - Caitlyn Lynch
5 stars - Easily the best threesome in the book and one of the best stories overall. The sex is hot and I loved the end line.
Parted Veils of Midsummer - Líadáin Douglas
4 Stars - I found myself wishing for a bit more with this story. This is one of the paranormal entries and it's good, but was missing something that kept it from being great.
The Gardener - Sera Taino
5 stars - If I could give this more stars, I would. This is hot with lovely language and I adore the older woman/younger man thing going on. One of the best stories in the anthology.
Siren’s Call - Gwen Marshall
5 stars - I really loved Theo and Nerissa. While I was semi-disappointed there wasn't more supernatural to this (make Theo a demi-god!!!) I still really loved this story and the characters.
Storm In A Teacup - Ava Bari
3 stars - I didn't like the MMC very much. This story was okay. The sex was good, but that's really all I can say.
Taking Chances - T.D. Crawls
4 stars - While I'm not a fan of the set up, I did like this story. I liked Lila and I liked the Woman!Dom aspects of the story. This is fun, but there was a little too much exposition at times.
The Flooding of Ar - Abbigail Clark
5 Stars - The lone historical entry and it's a good one. I loved the take on ancient Egypt and the Cult of Min as well as the whole ritualized sex thing. The only thing that would have made this better would be if the ending were a little more happy.
Bliss - Annika Steele
4 stars - I'll give the author credit, having an older romance between two divorcees with kids is a unique concept. But I thought there was too much with the kids and not enough with Simon and Chloe. If it weren't for the uniqueness, I'd have rated this 3 stars.
Just The Three Of Us - Moxie Rivers
4 stars - Another threesome story, this one is okay. I felt the characters needed a little more fleshing out. I didn't dislike any of the characters, bu this wasn't one of my favorites.
The Marine's Temptation - Livvy Ward
5 stars - This also gets an extra star for the dog. But unlike the other story with the dog, I liked the human characters better. They were believable and their getting together felt natural. Definitely a good read.
Bare Knuckled Love - Cynthia Miller
4 stars - This a good story, but it felt incomplete. I wanted more. I really liked Lucy and Reed is a bad boy that will definitely appeal to some.
Yearning - Siobhan Kearney
5 stars - This is the best paranormal offering in the set. I adored Ian, tattooed, hunky, and with a big heart. And I really felt for Rachel. While there were times that there felt like there was a little too much exposition, I forgot about it in the beauty of the language and the emotion of the characters.
A Cup of Coffee And An Offshore Wind - Avery J Heath
5 stars - This gets an extra star for the MFC. Grace is great. Amazing. Awesome. Are there enough adjectives? No... there are not. Seriously, this story is all about Grace. While the writing could use a little polish, there's a lot here that is fun. Seriously, Grace is the best MFC of the anthology.
Love In The Water - Tally Bane
3 stars - I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the heavy-handed and completely unnecessary trans-soapbox that felt out of place and lecturing. I would have liked it better if the brother had just been trans and it was a thing that was awesome. I felt sorry for Gail and angry at Kai for the whole thing. And I also felt sorry for the brother as well, that wasn't fair to him to have to explain his circumstance to his brother's long-time girlfriend. Other than that, this story was cute. I recommend future readers skip the first few pages of this and join the story in progress in the morning of their hike.
Instant Connection - Tricia Ramey
5 stars - great story I loved Aphry, she was fun and sexy. I really got into her and I wished the story was all in her head, but this was a strong end to an overall strong book.
In closing, I want to say I'll definitely be rereading several of these again and that the ones that aren't as strong don't overwhelm those that are. The editing is good, which unfortunately cannot be said for many of these anthology submissions. Get this while the getting is good!
Disclaimer: I received an ARC from one of the authors. My opinions are my own.
The Research Trip - Serena is a business woman, who believes that she isn't taken seriously by her coworkers because she is a woman. Her husband, Frank, accompanies her on a business trip, and helps take her mind off of everything by making sure she's busy in the bedroom. Very hot, very sexy book.
Summer Nights - Lauren is writer. She flies to California to meet Josh Davis, a movie star that's going to help her with her manuscript. Instant connection, but Lauren wants to keep their relationship somewhat professional. Of course, that doesn't happen!
Irresistible - Melanie is feeling down and alone while she attends her sister's wedding. She finally gets a moment to slip out, and is given an opportunity to tap into her wild side with Jordan and Saul. This is a VERY hot and sexy book, but you can also feel the tenderness of the men.
Parted Veils of Midsummer - This is more of a fairy-themed story than the others. Brigid is in a land (made me think of Scotland/Ireland) and meets Mavren during the Midsummer Festival. She has an instant connection to him, even though he is otherworldly, and they spend the night together. This story is a little fantastical, but an easy read.
The Gardener - Elena has the hots for her gardener, Ben. She feels silly, because she's so much older than him, but gets a pleasant surprise when he expresses his interest in her. This is a great Mrs. Robinson type story.
Siren's Call - Nerissa heads to Greece for a trip that was given to her by a wealthy family member. She meets Theo, and sparks fly. Nerissa certainly gets more than she expects. Very sexy story.
Storm In a Teacup - Kira and Alex are newlyweds, and Alex is getting ready to celebrate their anniversary, when a thunderstorm appears. Kira is afraid of thunderstorms, so Alex has to find a way to take her mind off of the storm. He is very creative with his distractions!
Taking Chances - Lila is ecstatic when she wins a vacation to a getaway to the Great Smoky Mountains; she was entered by her friends and coworkers. She meets Matthew while she's there and decides to have a little fun. This is a fun read.
The Flooding of Ar - I'm sorry to say, I didn't finish reading this. The idea didn't interest me.
Bliss - Chloe and her daughters are on vacation at the beach when Chloe happens upon Simon. They decide to finish the vacation together, but Chloe and Simon are drawn to each other. Chloe decides to do something for herself for once. This was a sweet story.
Just the Three of Us - Josh and Emily have just moved into their house. Dan is a friend, and they decide to have him move in with them. Their relationship opens up to include another person, and does it sizzle! Very hot book!
The Marine's Temptation - Nate is driving to his sister's wedding when she calls needing favor. Her best friend, Maggie needs a ride to the wedding. He reluctantly agrees, he can't say no! You end up seeing the softer side of Nate, and it's cute.
Bare-knuckled Love - Lucy is definitely not a girly-girl. She's a loner, and a writer. She meets her neighbor, Reed, when he falls in the hallway of their apartment complex. Reed is even more of a loner than Lucy. They slowly start spending more time together. This is a cute book.
Yearning - Rachel is a ghost who is attached to her home. She goes about day after day, stuck watching her house be neglected. She gets a surprise when a landscaper starts cleaning up her backyard. Ian gets a shock when he sees Rachel, he knows that she is a ghost. This is also a sweet story with a cute ending.
A Cup of Coffee with an Offshore Wind - Grace works for a coffee shop on the boardwalk. Jack and Noah are her regulars. They have a preposition for her that's unbelievable. Very hot story.
Love in the Water - Gail and Kai go to Hawaii so that Gail can meet Kai's family. His family is very intense, but Kai loves Gail, and he shows her exactly how much in hot and steamy ways.
Instant Connection - Aphry is helping with her sister's wedding. She meets Seth, who turns out to be the groom's best friend. Seth makes it clear that he wants more than just a fling with Aphry. Very steamy story!
I reviewed this anthology for Kylie's Fiction Addiction.
