Bad Boys Of Summer (Bowling Friends #4)
Luscious by Lori Foster
Bethany Churchill just quit her lousy job, dumped her lousy boyfriend and moved into a new apartment. She's not looking for love, but her hot new landlord, SWAT officer Lucius Ryder, aka "Luscious,” is determined to change her mind. Before long, Bethany is...more
I have tried Lori Foster more than once, and I just have not been happy with anything that she writes. The same goes for the story Luscious. Lucius is a "SWAT guy" (seriously, SWAT guy? Not police officer or SWAT officer, but SWAT guy? The man even refers to himself with this term! But I digress...) who also owns an apartment building where the heroine's (and I use the term lightly) identical twin sister lives. Bethan ...more
The second book by Erin McCarthy was great! I keep asking myself why I haven't hunted down every book she has written because so far, the books that I have read by her are awesome! Especially for a short story, she managed to get it all in...the meeting, the attraction, the flirting and then, of course, the hot sex. Throw in some humor and it's a perfect story! Five plus stars!!
The last story by Amy Garvey was okay. It wasn't reall ...more
It's About Time: 4 stars...hot, funny, & sexy all rolled into one short but awesome story"
Wish You Were Here: 3.5 stars… sexy, sweet, and a fun little secret coming out in the end leads to a great short story. Never read this author before but definitely worth checking out for the future.
Luscious by Lori Foster
While vigilantly positioned outside the home of Mary Seeder, whose son is holding her hostage for tossing out his cigarettes, SWAT member Lucius Ryder notices an emaciated dog off to the side. He tries to shoo the dog away but after making eye contact with the pup he notices that the stray is oddly perceptive and has taken an interest in the dangerous scene unfolding on the front porch. When Steve Seeder notices the dog he laughs at the joke of a police dog and attem ...more
SWAT cop Lucius Ryder (nicknamed Luscious by the women living in the apartment building he owns) has been attracted to his tenant Marci Churchill's twin sister Bethany from day one. The women might be identical, but it's Bethany's attitude and sense of humor that draw Lucius. That and the fact that, unlike most women, she doesn't fawn all over him. Meanwhile, Bethany just broke up with yet another man who was dating her to get to her sister. She has always tried t ...more
"It's About Time" (Bowling Friends, 4)
Lori Foster's "Luscious" is all about the Luscious Lucius. A hunky SWAT team member who parlayed an inheritance into an apartment building he rents to women out of luck. One of his tenants has a particularly luscious twin sister he is just dying to know better.
Erin McCarthy's "It's About Time" is just that. About time for Caleb Vanco ...more
I read another story that matched this one previously so I was familiar with some of the characters. Lucius is a SWAT cop who owns an apartment building he rents to women that he saved basically. He has a crush on one of his tenants twin sister so when he finds her crashing on the sister's couch he takes advantage of the situation. This story was sweet and pretty sexy. I would have liked if it was a bit longer but it was good nonetheless.

Luscious by Lori Foster (2 stars)
It's about a man named Lucious (his women tenants call him Luscious). He's a hunky SWAT guy and he takes in a stray dog after the dog saves the day in a hostage situation. He owns an apartment building and one of this tenants is a woman who has an identical twin sister named Bethany w ...more
Luscious - Lori Foster
I liked him, hot SWAT guy who adopts a mangy mutt, Hero - combo that will almost always work for me! Bethany was a bit annoying but together they were fun. Little bit of danger and action and overall good short story.
It's about Time - Erin McCarthy
He was hot and huge and sexy, she was assertive and a bit over the top. It was a one night stand - very hot - but that was all... ...more
Foster's story about a SWAT officer who has to face a personal hostage situation, McCarthy's story about the one-night-stand that is so much more than just that, and Garvey's story about a former musician that had me listening twice to music all day and wondering what happened to them in the last couple of years.
Interesting, if somewhat blunt and short, stories by some good story-tellers.
Maybe the ...more
Bad Boys of Summer is steamy, and at times down right sizzling. P ...more
I have only read a few short stories by Lori Foster and while this one wasn't my favorite, it was still really good. How could it not be with a "luscious" SWAT officer to read about?
It's About Time 3 Stars
This story was also not as good as some other short stories I've read by this author. I did like it though. Maybe I just need a break from these anthology books, this is my second one in a row.
Wish You Were Here 5 Stars
I have never read anything by Amy Garvey but this story was ...more
Luscious by Lori Foster
--What's Going On--
Bethany Churchill just quit her lousy job, dumped her lousy boyfriend and moved into a new apartment. She's not looking for love, but her hot new landlord, SWAT officer Lucius Ryder, aka "Luscious,” is determined to change her mind. Before long, Bethany is tempted to find out if he's really as delicious as his nickname…
The first one had a guy named Lucius, who the apartment building full of women have named Luscious, which had me laughing, but what was even more funny was that they called him this to his face.
If you are looking for a "beach" read this would be the book to pick up.
Bethany and Marci are twins. Lucius is Marci's landlord and SWAT officer. And there is a dog.
Erin McCarthy - it's about time
Trish the lawyer and Caleb the construction worker with a Harley
Amy Garvey - Wish you were here
Skimmed - photog and carpenter with a secret
Marci & Bethany are twin sisters. Marci is a pet "psychic". Very good story.
Middle one my least favorite.
