The only book from this box set I genuinely liked and enjoyed was Club Shadowlands (which I've read before more than once). Teasing Trent was another enjoyable read but was nothing special. All others were boring and gag worthy at times to the point that I didn't finish most of them.

BOOK 1: Erika Wilde.
I really enjoy this first book. Committed longterm couple find themselves in a runt after years of struggling to save money and bring up two sons now at college. Jill wants to spice up her sex life after years of vanilla sex behind locked door with her husband.
BOOK 2: Liliana Hart
Way too short but I loved it. It's fast pace and has a great ending. Dane appears back in town after 10yrs to find the love of his life has a son and no one in her life to

I found this book free. It is a selection of stories from various authors some of which are the first books in a series. As an introduction to the authors it works well.

The only story that really sticks in my mind though is the one by Cherise Sinclair, this is probably because I have been interested in her books before but the price has always put me off. Cherise's story is the first in her Masters of Shadowlands series and I enjoyed it enough to cough up the money for the next couple in the se

There were only three stories in this set I enjoyed, and one of them I had read before.

Cherie's Siclair's story about the BDSM club and master was my favorite by far. Well written and full of believable.

M. Malone's teasing Trent was a former read and enjoyable again.

Offside was the other one I read, but must admit that the triplets names kept me confused. Also, the point where the writer talks about dementia, or Alzheimer's, or whatever. These are two different conditions and are not interchange

These authors have managed to write novellas that have fun, character depth, and a plot. This is not an easy thing to do! I'll be searching for stories (and reading

The Awakening- his book was a hot read about Jill, a wife who wants to add a little spice to her sex life with Dean, her husband. She goes to his job to seduce him & explain what she wants from him. Now she just has to sit back and wait to see if he truly understands her desires & if he will follow through with his own...or his he to afraid he will lose control???

I've had mostly bad luck with anthologies but this one wasn't bad.

The Awakening (The Marriage Diaries Vol. 1) by Erika Wilde: 3 Stars. A sweet little short read about empty nesters trying to spice things up but at 35 pages, it was way too short.

Dane (The MacKenzie Family #1) by Liliana Hart: 3 Stars. Okay read but several problems with the story. I thought it was crazy that Charlotte kept something so important from Dane, and he was okay with this. The story was also extremely short and then ju

on the whole it was an okay collection. I had already read Dane by Liliana Hart & new I loved it. The Awakening was good, I enjoyed the fact that the husband saw his mistake before he made it & then proceeded to make his wife the most important thing in his life. Offside was fantastic, I loved it. Juliana Stone wrote such a wonderful story about a former female Olympic medal winning hockey player. Billie was a breath of fresh air in a way that she didn't give in to the pressures of ...more

Apr 30 - Read book 1 The Awakening
A sexy short story. I liked that it involved a married couple rekindling their sex life.

The beginning especially appealed to me, as the heroine took the initiative and instigated a rendezvous. Then in typical erotica style the roles QUICKLY reversed and she ended up spanked and they both realised his need for dominance and her need to submit **Sigh

Some good some not so good...

I adore Cherise Sinclair and the Masters of the Shadowlands. That is why I bought this book. If they were in a collection with Master Z, how bad could they be? I loved the Marriage Diaries. The first page had me hooked. It was nice to read about a more mature married couple for a change. The FSOG formula is getting a little tiresome. I also liked Dane a lot. I even purchased the next book. The others were ok, but nothing that had me racing to the kindle store to buy

The Awakening - 5 stars: Love this book. Read it before I got this one and have read the whole series. Erika Wilde is a favorite!!

Dane - 3 stars: Good book but rushed because the book is so short.

Offside - 1 star: I could not get into this book. Had nothing to do with because it was about hockey. I just couldn't get into it and didn't even finish reading it.

Teasing Trent - 3 stars: It was ok. Short and sweet.

Masters of the Shadowlands 1 - 5 stars: If you like BDSM you will love this book. Found

I read this collection of books as it was free on Amazon and it featured one of my favourite authors, Jasinda Wilder. It also featured a book by Liliana Hart, an author who I have meet but not read any of her books yet.

This collection of stories varies, club Shadowland is very bdsm orientated, whilst other stories have romance and rather hot sex. Some stories I really enjoyed and others were ok. This collection should suit most people as I'm sure that it has something for everyone.

Only two of the six stories were worth reading. Most of these weren't even a complte story. I like series but for me its a waste of time when a single story is split between books that only give a chapter or two at a time.

Cherise Sinclaire remains one of my favorite authors and I love her Shadowlands books.
CMarie
This was a mixed bag for me. I loved 3 of the books and didn't even finish the other three.

Loved: The Awakening, Offside and Club Shadowland (the last one was a re-read for me)

The other three were DNF and just couldn't hold my attention or were just plain not my thing: Dane, Teasing Trent and Delilah's Diary

A mixed bag of goodies

Enjoyed the different stories, as always. Interesting, well developed characters, stories that cover good ground and don't go stagnant in the middle just to fill word count.

Some of the selection weren't really my bag but I still enjoyed the set. The one that stood out for me far and away was Masters of Shadowlands - Master Z wow, great story. I quite enjoyed Offside too. The whole set is well worth a read.

It was okay, had some nice and steamy scenes. Some could of have used better details but otherwise it was pretty good! Especially Master of the Shadowlands 1: Club Shadowlands...need to go find the rest of the series.

This was a great collection of romance/erotic stories. This was written as a teaser for a range of authors you may not have experienced before.

Let me tell you I've found some authors I will try again.

This was a 2.5 star read rounded up for 5 of the 6 stories- my stars do not include Club Shadowlands which I read before and loved.
Sonia Root
This was a quick read, liked some of the shorts. Had already read two of them but didn't mind reading them again (Malone/Wilder).

Really enjoyed Erika Wilde's short.

Good little collection of stories, some leave you wanting more through, some of the stories end to soon and looking at the following books in the series, the stories don't carry on.

Hart: 2+
Stone: 1
Malone: 3
Sinclair: 3+
