China Doll by Sunny

Two outta three ain’t bad…

“China Doll” - Although a little rough in places, the author, Sunny, created engaging characters that pull you into the story. Anna, having been used and abused, was looking for someone to help exorcize the bad memories of her ex. Rand was looking for someone to have some fun with, wanting to pass the time. Rand got more than he bargained for when he fell in love with her, LOL! I’ve read the author before, and she’s really good.

“Tempted” - I’ve never read Jami Alden bef

Purchased this kinda by accident. Unusual that I would like more than one story in an anthology (so I avoid them), but two of the three here were actually very good.

Tempted by Jami Alden. A story of best friends & co-workers becoming more. The characters and plot were fun, engaging and believable. Good Well done and very enjoyable read, I will be watching for more from this talented author.

Hot Wired by Valerie Martinez. What to say...hummm. Propogates racial stereotyping, and would be a sca

I read this for Sunny's story, "China Doll," which was fairly enjoyable, if dragged a little longer than I really wanted to read. Jami Alden's "Tempted" was also engaging---fun and breezy, a perfect introduction to the anthology just as Sunny's story was the perfect end. But Valerie Martinez's story...well, bizarre is probably the best way to describe it.

More about lust than love---an odd fit, considering the other two stories in the collection---it reads less like a romance and more like some o

can't remember when I read this, but, HOLY SMOKIN HAWT COVER!!!!!!!! *LOL*

Just read Chinese Doll by Sunny . The setting take place at Medan, Indonesia. Yep, that's my country even I'm not go to Medan yet :)

I can't remember what the story, just the woman is older than man, she is Chinese, but look young (the beauty of us, the Asian people, we forever young ;) ) , despite she 10 years older. They have one night

Recommends it for: fans of romantica
I DID enjoy skin on skin. My fave author of the bunch was Sunny, I am partial b/c I have read her before 2nd was Jamie A. then Valerie M. I liked how each author had a different style and took time to develop each story/character even tho they were short. The sex scenes were either frequent and short or longer and more intense, so a little or both whoever likes them both ways. Me? I don't mind waiting a bit and getting a nice long love scene. It was enjoyable and I look forward to other Jamie A. ...more

Jami Alden’s Tempted was the best of the bunch with two friends crossing that tricky boundary to lovers, yet still hoping to get back to being friends after a hot’n’steamy weekend. You can guess how that one worked out.

Fun, sexy, sweet, sad, cute story that I won’t mind re-reading in the future.

If only I could say the same for Martinez’s Hot Wired and Sunny’s China Doll. Bland and boring, and Hot Wired didn’t make much sense to me.

I guess I should’ve read them first and then relish JA’s story wi

Only really enjoyed Jami's story I would give that 4 stars. The other two were barely 2 stars..

I only read one of the three stories in this romantica anthology, because I happen to like the author Sunny for her erotically-charged urban fantasy series. Unfortunately, this story had nothing to do with that series. It was sexually explicit (it is erotica), but at the heart of it, the story was contemporary romance. I read the synopses of the other two stories and it's more of the same. If you love contemporary romance, but wish the love scenes weren't "off camera", this book might be for you ...more

Awesome short story's. 1st story "tempted" by jami alden is connected to "Taste of honey" about the Donovan brother. Which really should be read 1st before this book. Still really good stand alone book. Middle book ok short and easy to read by Valerie Martinez. Last story is by Sunny "china doll" is awesome and follows Chinatown which is about Anna's daughter. Loved every story.

Three stories, only the first one was any decent. Both the second and third tried to be too literary. The heroine in the second one was pretty stupid. And I couldn't even finish the third.

There are three stories in this book. Tempted by Jami Alden was good! I have read another story by Sunny that worked nicely with China Doll that she has in this book. Unfortunately it was a lot of detail, granted details are good but this got almost boring. Still a good story. Lastly there was Hot Wired by Valerie Martinez, bad. Seriously, it was tough to follow, unrealistic, had a gang thug and a james dean type. The story summary on the back was false advertising. Took me too long to get throu ...more

I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. I had never read anything by any of the authors and enjoyed being able to "try them out" without buying full lenght books.

Tempted by Jami Alden: 5 Stars

This story is my favorite of them it has it all: Love, Romance, Hot Sex, Should of stayed lost EX's and a Porn Star Momma to round it off. Great story, I will be adding Jami Alden to my watch list and be looking for more of her books to try.

Tempted - 5 Stars

I absolutely loved this one. It was cute, sexy and steamy.
Tony and Lauren are best friends, they work together, watch ESPN together, etc. They both have strong sexual feelings for each other but they are afraid of ruining their relationship so they never do anything about it. But one weekend trip, and a 'fake' relationship could change everything.

I loved it, sooo much. I'm mad this is an anthology and th

Liked the first story "Tempted" (3.5 stars) about co-workers becoming lovers, really didn't like the second one "Hot Wired" (1 star) that had some bad stereotyping in it, and the third one "China Doll" was okay (2.5 stars), the sex scene was very sensual, but the way they meet again a bit weird and not elaborated enough.

Shelves: jami-alden
only read jami alden's tempted so far. seemed like a story out of high school novels with a very worn out plot wherein two people pretend to be girlfriend/boyfriend. Plus the characters are two good friends that simply don't want to complicate their friendship. its not badly written but its also not very creative. will not read it again.

The 5 star rating is for the China Doll series by Sunny : simply stunning ! I'm impressed by the depth of characters in such a short story format recommend the 1st book in the series in the Hard Stuff anthology

I really enjoyed the first story. The second story had some really good parts and some not so good parts. The third story- the one by Sunny- just didn't grab me, and I had a hard time getting into it.

A family practice physician and Vassar graduate, Sunny was finally pushed into picking up her pen by the success of the rest of her family. Much to her amazement, she found that, by golly, she actually could write a book, and that it was much more fun than being a doctor.

As an author, Sunny has been featured on Geraldo at Large and CNBC, and has won many awards including the prestigious PRISM Awar
