previously reviewed at Dear Author.

Boys of Summer is a compilation of three short stories featuring heroes who are employed by the Louisville Slammers, a major league baseball team. The sex scenes are quite explicit in this story, as explicit as the ones sold at Ellora���s Cave.

These stories all suffer from the same problems

1) lack of showing
2) minimal dialogue
3) attempt to fit an entire romance into a compressed space
4) a blushing herione

The Leto story sets the stage for the entire collection
I really liked this anthropology. Each story was linked, which was great. I love when writers can work together to create a story. These novella were about 3 best friends who decide to step out of their comfort zone and seduce a member of the local Baseball team.
I loved Leto's Fever Pitch. Callie and Donovan were clearly in love with each other but couldn't figure out how to make their marriage work. Six years later, I think they finally saw what each other truly meant to them and over came the
This little anthology is an easy reading for a rainy afternoon. It's short and easy and I liked it but all the three stories were really light.

Those 3 friends are sad because the city baseball team is probably leaving and they work on baseball fans. But really the introduction serves to meet the young women and to know their stories with baseball related men.

I liked the third story more than the other but the others two were okay too.

So this one was a very fast and really cute read. All 3 stories of the stories in the anthology connect together, which made it really fun. The first one was pretty good but I really loved the second 2. They are each about a different couple. All the stories flowed really well together so it wasnt as though you were reading from 3 different authors. Its even a good read for non baseball fans. Its more focused on the romance and each other the woman having one night with their "fantasy" man. So o ...more

I have always been a bit wary of anthologies, wondering how much justice can be done to characters' relationship in 50-page segments. However, this book may have just changed my feelings on that!

A wonderful trio of entwining stories that effortlessly flowed into each other and could have passed as being written by one author.

I liked the third story a little less than the first two but still definitely an all-round enjoyable read.

Three friends join in a quest to seduce their 'dream' men and make their fantasy's become reality.
5 stars.

While reading this I was craving baseball and summer. These authors paint a very fine picture of the boys of summer.

Boys Of Summer is a quick read, of three enjoyable novels, all about three best friends who set out to enjoy baseball and some of its sexy players in a whole new, very hands on way.
This was one of the better little collections...maybe it was the hot, athletic men. But the men and women were fun characters with romance and hot sex...a fun quick read!
More like 3.5 but I will give the four for getting 3 stories in one :) Short and sweet with different scenarios to each...light read :)
Stories were too brief, they needed to be developed further but all in all a good read for the genre.
I love baseball.
