4 ½ stars – Contemporary Romance/Erotica Anthology

Real Men Last All Night is a steamy anthology featuring four solid, sexy contemporary stories by three established erotic romance authors and a promising newcomer.

Cooper’s Fall by Lora Leigh
Ex-Army Ranger Ethan Cooper owns a bad-ass biker bar in a small Texas town and enjoys his no-strings-attached, love ‘em-and-leave ‘em, bad-boy lifestyle. He suddenly finds his life turned upside down and his hardened, cold heart turned inside out when he find

Recommends it for: Fans of these authors; fans of hot romance anthologies
There are 4 short stories/novellas in this very hot and sexy anthology--3 I enjoyed very much, one that was just okay.

Starting with the “just okay” one, Lora Leigh’s Cooper’s Fall. Normally I enjoy a hot story by Lora Leigh, but for some reason this one, about a former Army Ranger turned bar owner, and the daughter of a Mafia don with a secret past sounded like the “same old, same old”. No new ground was broken here. The heroine was typical LL: virginal, in trouble, in need of some kind of help/

I really liked the Lora Leigh story. The hero was an Uber alpha without being an Uber a-hole. It's stories like these that keep bringing me back to Lora Leigh. On a side note - I loooved the piercings. *giggle*

I didn't read Lori Foster's book.

Edge of Sin was okay. The heroine was a brazen little hussy that certainly went after what she wanted. The sex was alright. I am just not a fan of Cheyenne McCray.

I really liked Heidi Betts story. This was my first story by her and I really liked it. The

This book is a collection of 4 sexy stories by popular erotic/sensual romance authors.

Cooper's Fall by Lora Leigh

Summary:
Sarah Fox is a shy but sensual young woman living in a small Texas town. But she secretly lusts after the bad boy next door. She hasn't worked up the nerve to come on to him, and he's never really shown an interest in her. Then Ethan Cooper spies Sarah sunbathing naked in her back yard and all his preconceived notions of her go out the window. And he can't stop thinking about

I enjoyed all but the very last story in this erotic, modern, romantic suspense.

1. Cooper's Fall by Lora Leigh

This was NOT connected to anything that this author has already written, but does open a potential doorway into a new series involving former Rangers--all working at a local bar owned by one of them (the main character in this story), Ethan Cooper. He lives next door to Sarah Fox and for two years they've been polite with each other. Sarah has a dark secret...

Some parts were pretty hot but it's official. Contemporary romance is not my thing and cops and soldiers really don't float my boat. To turn me on, a hero pretty much has to have fangs or a British/Scottish/Irish accent. Or fangs and an accent, even better. So, really. It's about me, not the book. Just not a good fit. If I had to choose, the first story, by Lora Leigh, is probably my favorite. There's a gangster story in there by way of a plot, but it doesn't distract too much from the Boom Boom ...more

Four short stories
1. Cooper's Fall by Lora Leigh - I've been reading some less than good Bound Hearts books so I wasn't expecting much and ended up really liking it. Sarah met Ethan by chance years before but was so fascinated that she ended moving next door to him waiting for him to notice her. Two years later after seeing her nude sunbathing, he finally notices her. There's a mystery regarding her past that comes into play. Very good story.

2. Luring Lucy by Lori Foster - Bram has always been i

Really liked the Lora Leigh and Lori Foster stories.

Cooper's Fall was fairly standard Lora Leigh fare (which I love) with a big, rough, tough loner who falls for and is soften by love. The heroine's "secret" was typical LL drama and too extreme, but was a small part of the story.

Luring Lucy by Lori Foster was a fun, sweet story of a life long friend who must convince a middle age, insecure heroine to have an affair - and build a life with him. Quite steamy writing for the author who is another

This multi-author anthology has 4 stories, 2 very good ones and two poor ones and scored a 3.7* with on the strength of the good ones. In the very good group are Lora Leigh with Cooper's Fall and Lori Foster with a surprisingly gentle story of middle age love. In the poor category are Cheyenne McCray and Heidi Betts with two 'action romances' that are without a shred of believability.

In Cooper's Fall, Ms Leigh writes a 'Nauti' style stand alone with her usual former spec ops Alpha hero and 'woun

Cooper’s Fall by Lora Leigh
Former ranger turned bar owner Ethan Cooper never expected to get an eyeful of prim Miss Sarah Fox from his attic window one hot summer afternoon. But now his blood is on fire for the delicious little minx.

OK story. Didn't really seem to be much of a plot, just lots of bedroom action.

Strange how the picture of the book lists Lori Foster first and my copy lists Lora Leigh first but it must be the same book. I would like to give 5/5 to Lori Foster's and Cheyenne McCray's stories. They were so good and I've just found two new-to-me authors thanks to this book! Lora Leigh's was true to form and enjoyable even if the hero seemed more neanderthal to me than Alpha and I enjoyed Heidi Betts' story as well. I don't usually buy novellas unless one of the stories is already part of an ...more

I really liked this one, which is surprising because often I don't like anthologies. But there were four stories in it, and I liked each one. My least favorite was the story by Cheyenne Mccray, even though it was a part of her Lexi Steele storyline (This was about Lexi's brother Zane), it just annoyed me a bit. My favorite was by Lora Leigh. I've only read a few of her things, but this was definitely the best story out of all of them in my opinion!

I think there's another book that's similar to t

First story is by Lora Leigh and is called Coopers Fall. I liked it alot except for the very end which I thought was kind of cheesy.

Second story is Lori Foster and is called Luring Lucy. This is a friends-to-"more" story. Started out ok but again, turned kind of cheesy and really, almost icky.

Third story I skimmed. It was about a gov't agent and a girl named Willow who liked to laugh. Uh....whatever.

Fourth story was a secret baby story which I absolutely DESPISE so I didn't even attempt to read

I was really disappointed in this book. The advertisement promises steamy stories, but it doesn't promise stories that make sense or even seem possible. Which is a good thing because the only story seriously worth reading is the Lori Foster one. The other three are stupid at best and only get worse from there. I would rank the stories with #1 being the best and #4 being the absolute worst like this: 1. Lori Foster, 2. Lora Leigh, 3. Heidi Betts, 4. Cheyenne McCray. Seriously, DO NOT waste your t ...more

this was a pretty good anthology. i got sucked in for the lora leigh story but stuck around for the rest. the surprise was the McCray novella. i thought it was an all around good solid story. i usually cringe when i read her books. its not often i get an anthology and like all of the stories in it. this was a pleasant surprise

I rated this book 4 stars, a very generous rating if I average the ratings for the four novellas. Rated separately:
Lora Leigh 4 1/2 (would have made a good full length novel)
Lori Foster 3 1/2
Cheyenne McCray 3
Heidi Betts 1 1/2
The stories went from best to worst imo.

My story is a reissue, but the other novellas are new, so I'm reading them. I've gotten to know Heidi Betts now, and I like her writing style a lot.

Short stories are not enough to develop emotional connections.


Luring Lucy by Lori Foster

All Lucy was looking for when she went to her vacation home was in innocent fling to quell the yearning she had felt since her husband died four years ago. She never expected her longtime friend Bram to lure her into a love affair so hot.


Cooper’s Fall by Lora Leigh

Former ranger turned bar owner Ethan Cooper never expected to get an eyeful of prim Miss Sarah Fox from his attic window one hot summer afternoon.

Cooper's Fall by Lora Leigh
3 1/2 stars
Typical Leigh. Gets right to the point. Characters are decent. A little bit of suspense, but not great. Cooper is overly alpha while Sarah is a tough cookie trying to take care of herself. She's also inexperienced while he is very experienced. Nothing new from Leigh.

Luring Lucy by Lori Foster

Multi-author [semi:] themed anthology. All stories were to OK good reads and I especially liked the Lora Leigh story as it had an interesting turn on the heroine. You've got to wonder though, this guy owns a bar which has a live band, employs his 12 ex-ranger buddies as bouncers, bartenders etc. This implies a pretty huge overhead - do bars where the clientele runs to thugs, bikers, and bad boys make that kind of money?

Cooper's Fall was a great read. One of Leigh's best. I only wish it were a full story instead of a novella. I really liked Cooper's character & that it wasn't a constant disappointment for Sara & him to be together. I hope the next Wounded Warriors story is a full novel.

Luring Lucy was also a great story. I thought it was very realistic to how a woman really sees things sometimes. And the fact that Lucy was a 39-year-old mother with stretch marks and all was definitely not something I've

Once again another collection were I skipped the last story. Children in the story aren't my thing. They should be adults and peripheral to the main story.

So Luring Lucy, I liked even though I thought that Bram was a bit pushy. Yes he is in love with Lucy and of course she cares for him and has the hots for him but I seriously understood why she didn't want to jump into another committed relationship. The last one sucked badly and she has the right to want to take it slow and consider her kids

"Real Men Last All Night" Anthology 4 1/2 stars. Overall a very good anthology.

"Cooper's Fall" by Lora Leigh. My rating: 3 1/2 - 4 stars
Good story with intriguing characters. The good girl virgin Sarah and the bad boy bar owner Ethan. She lusts for him and decides to go for it. His resistance doesn't last long and their romance is hot and sweet.

The only negative is the author decided to give the leads a previous encounter in the past (which only one of them remembers) tied to t

Fun, hot pursuits of great steamy scenes... of the not so typical romatical expectations!

"Cooper's Fall" by Lora Leigh - uhm, HAWT! Loved the way she brings Coop and Sara together in a round-about way. Her hidden past is dynamic and dark, the conclusion almost like taking a shower after a romp in the mud puddles. Always a joy to read Lora Leigh!

"Luring Lucy" by Lori Fost - threw me completely off the tracks! I read a bit and then had to set it down for a few hours to chew on the new direction. I

In Lora Leigh's story, Cooper's Fall, I didn't care much for the heroine, Sarah. She has gone through some stuff in her past and instead of feeling like a survivor to me, she just felt like a victim. The hero, Ethan, wasn't bad, but I felt that he bulldozed over Sarah. With a man like him, I can't ever see her being anything other than an overprotected wife.

Luring Lucy by Lori Foster, I liked the storyline and the characters. They had a past and already cared for one another. Lucy just felt real

1st story: Lora Leigh, a nonbreed story. Good, liked the emotion, the ending was ok

2nd story: Lori Foster, not bad. Plot was a basic to romance (friend turned lover, etc), but Foster handled it well enough.

3rd story: Cheyenne McCray, didn't really read. It's related to her Lexi Steele novels, Lexi's brother. It seemed too ...Bond-like, and I really don't care for James Bond. Superspies aren't really my thing.

4th story: Heidi Betts, first story I've read by her, a good author. STory had lots of a

Lets start out by saying the title really had not one thing to do with any of the short stories.

Although I can find some major faults in at least 2 of the stories overall I really really enjoyed each story.

They are exactly what they seem a wham bam Happy Ever After in about 1 hour's time. Perfect for the pool, beach or in my case a 4th grade softball game.

My favorite by far was Lori Foster's Luring Lucy. It was the most believable HEA and the story was perfect nothing felt rushed or to short

The stories form Lora Leigh, Cheyenne McCray, and Heidi Betts were all very good. The story from Lori Foster was so terrible I almost didn't read the other stories.
