Two ok stories, one weak story.

1st and 2nd stories: 3 stars each. Sex scenes were good. Stories were just ok. They were not long enough to get into interesting character development or plot. The major conflict in the 2nd story was that he paid her money to marry him so she could feel independent. Then he worried whether she loved him or did it for the money. It was a little odd.

I did not like the 3rd story (2 stars).

"3 Brides for 3 Bad Boys" by Lucy Monroe consists of three somewhat intertwined stories that can be read as standalones. Each one is short enough that the entire book may be read in one sitting (which is what happened on my end).

The three bad boys are actually half-brothers, all having the same father, but I wouldn't really call them "bad boys". Each one was basically a nice guy and showed each of the women respect and, later on, love and devotion.

There was nothing overly complicated with the s

Torn between rating this 2.5 or 3 stars for the three stories. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. I was hoping that this would give me a good laugh and maybe make me swoon or something like that, but sadly, it didn't reach my expectations. I mean, it had its moments, but most of the time, I was just reading it just for the sake of finishing it. It was kind of draggy, and the plot was sometimes loose. Plus, the characters were kind of jumbled and everything...I don't know. I d ...more

These stories were not as good as I was hoping they would be. They were weaker in character and story, but overall just rushed.

The first story, about Rand, was cute. He doesn’t want a serious relationship, but Pheobe pushes him to spend a week together in bed for the property of hers that he wants. The romance and characters were fine in this, but the climactic moment where Rand realizes he wants Pheobe for good just didn’t work for me. It made sense as

Ok. I have to say this. I'm still reading this book but it's like I can't get past page 78. Because it had a disjointed scene. I'm a very visual reader. My mind is a veritable cinematographic delight. So i get frustrated when i can't place characters in a scene. And that's what's happened in page 77/78 of this book. It is more frustrating because its a love scene.
In the book, the hero has just walked back into the hotel suite he's staying with the heroine. She's waiting for him as he arrives. A
Rand, Carter and Colton are three half-brothers with the same womanizing father. each of the brothers gets his own little story in this book. the problem with shorter stories, is that the author needs a lot more skill to give characters depth. Unfortunately, Monroe didn't really manage. The book isn't terrible, but the stories are saccharine and repetitive. These scenes were blah. They would have been all right if they weren't all in the same book, but when you get the stories one after another ...more

The plot itself was nice although the entire book did feel rushed in such a way that the characters and the background did not get to develop that much.

Ai, ai, ai... Rand é uma coisa de homem, estou apaixonada por ele.

Digamos um pouquinho sofrido, mas que homem maravilhoso...

Fiona que mulher de sorte, estou com vontade de agredi-la, sou contra violência, mas tenho vontade de agredi-la virtualmente. Se é que isso é possível.

Não importa, como ela ousa pensar em deixá-lo, isso jamais deveria passar pela cabeça dela, nem por brincadeira...

Que homem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leia e se apaixone também...

This was an OK trio of moderate romances told with a yawn. The redeeming qualities were the imaginative plots and the well-drawn characters. These characters have real issues, and I did not believe in the happily ever after endings because the issues had barely been addressed.

I don't know why Lucy Monroe can write a fairly explicit love scene mentioning body parts by name, but she cannot write a curse word. How about this:

"He said a not very nice word."

and this:

"...he erupted into cursing...."

After I read the first story the second and third were almost exactly the same format

girl meets boy (circumstances change)
they have sex (circumstances change)
after some time they declare love for each other
they kiss
everyone lives happily ever after

The stories were a bit fluffy
that it my term for light airy reading (like holiday novels)

Three brothers - meet / bed / and keep three very different women.

I must admit that I will probably look out for the next book in this series .... although the sto
If these three fellas are bad boys I'm the Queen of Sheba. Truly, the three half-brothers, offspring of one Hoyt Sloane, are lambs compared to some real bad boys of Romancelandia out there.
And their stories are living proof. Rather meek and quite uneventful, often boring, and not very entertaining. They certainly didn't pull me in.

This was a rather meh one-author anthology with average heroes and even more average heroines, seriously lacking in chemistry and even more in plot.

This has three short stories in it by the same author. The stories follow three brothers as they fall in love under different circumstances. The first brother is afraid to give his heart because his wife and child died years ago. But he finds himself attracted to his brother's exfiancee. The second brother falls in love with a woman working for his company and offers her half a million dollars to marry him. The third brother meets a showgirl while drunk and marries her in Vegas.

This book came at exactly the right time. Not only is it the best of Lucy Monroe's work, in my opinion, but it was exactly what I needed: hunky men and true love. Doesn't it get any better? I've always found short fiction a challenge to undertake, where writing is concerned, and I find it very interesting to see how other people can pull it off, and in this collection, Monroe pulls it off big time. I loved every single one of these characters and was immediately sucked in. Loved it!

This is the first, but will not be the last, Lucy Monroe book I have read.

Three Brides For Three Bad Boys is a collection of three novellas about half brothers who are bad boys that all turn out to be really good guys. The novellas are about the three totally hunky, hot brothers, Rand, Carter, and Colten, and their whirlwind romances.

A fast and racy read that will likely leave you wanting more of each of these bad boy brothers.
Lucy Monroe did a excellent job of connecting these stories. It's not often that three short stories relate to each other but this is one of the rare times it does. Every character is well developed and very likable. I can't say much more without giving anything away and since I don't do spoilers. I'll just say that if you like to read about men that won't take no for a answer when it comes to his woman than you'll love this book.
3 novellas that are just long enough. I enjoyed each story.
Of the three stories, each one was worse than the previous. It was a disappointment. I couldn't finish reading the last story because it was so foolish. And their were too many scenes about intimacy, they lost there value. Not to mention all the intimacy scenes were pretty much described the same way. It became boring.
2 1/2 stars
Just a so-so read. I wouldn't call any of the "boys" bad...more like horny. There really wasn't any plot or character development. Not really a bad read, just not a good one, either...if you want something fluffy with sex, this one works. If you want substance, look someplace else.

Three half-brothers each trying to overcome past and avoid the mistakes of their father. I liked the first two stories (Rand's and Carter's) the best. The third didn't seem contain as much depth and felt almost like it was tacked on as an afterthought.
This book was not really what I was expecting....Goodreads made it seem like they were connected to her mercenary series, but these are straight romance with no suspense. The first two novellas were better than the last, which was completely unbelievable.
The first story was a gripper, the second was luke warm but the third I read within 3 hours. Finished up the book and on to the next. Overall this was an okay book, not my usual paranormal fantasy type.

Besides being totally sexually explicit, the whole 'plot' (if you can call it that) for all 3 stories is completely and nauseatingly cheesy. I'm surprised I even made it through this entire book.
This book is total fantasy, but it's a fun read! If you don't expect anything too serious, you should enjoy it (as long as you are a fan of this author's work - which is steamy!)
Ann Mulholland
Three short, hot stories about three brothers finding love and some steamy sex along the way. Very easy read, but left me wanting a little more
Three short stories with equally yummy heroes. I loved Rand's story the best though. Wish it could have been longer!
My review:
The stories were quick and a little bit campy, but they were sexy still. Wished they could have been a bit more developed, but I liked them.
I bought this book because it was supposed to be related to the Goddard Project (?). It was OK, but I don't think it will be on my re-read shelf...
Christina North
This was a very sexy, witty romance. Or I should say three romances, as it was about Three brothers relationships. Very quick and entertaining read.
