I wouldn’t say these were all comedies, however each story was enjoyable. I tend to shy away from anthologies as I am looking for a full story and quickies sometimes are just a brief interlude, but this had a few that led me to look at some new authors I want to try. ...more

SPOILER ALERT-STOP READING IF YOU DONT WANT A SPOILER Liked this one quite a bit, almost 5 stars but I don't get a man who swears he found his one and yet has someone else giving him the business. Granted this was before they became an official item but I struggled with this part of the plot line. Once through this hurdle though it is a fascinating read. Had several very unexpected twists you don't see coming....more

It takes Zoey travZoey Malone has always known she was in love with Alpha of the Panther Pride Kayden Lynn, she only wished he returned the feelings. It takes Zoey traveling to Las Vegas and meeting with Alpha Johnny Ringo for Kayden to wisen up and realize he is about to lose his true mate to another. It should be a smooth transition with mates but someone from the past is determined to keep them apart and Zoey's life is in danger.
Very good story. I thought Kayden was an intriguing alpha because he just didn't claim Zoey, he felt unworthy of her. Zoey is a delight, she is clever and has a way of commanding attention when things get out of hand. Can't wait for the next book in the series....more
After witnessing a murder, Autumn Mayson has to get out of Vegas and quick.

When she is sent to stay under the protective eye of Kenton Mayson she knows he is one of many who think he has her pegged.
Autumn is a beauty, she also did what she had to do to survive and stripped for a living while putting herself through nursing school. However, Kenton, like all men assume that she hands out favors and lives and breathes as a stripper, he couldn't be more wrong.
So, slight confession I was hesitant on this one because I wasn't sure if I would like the plot line. That being said I was so wrong, loved loved loved this story. I reread all of Aurora Rose Reynolds books when I am in the mood for an excellent alpha male book and this one just hit my reread pile. Kenton makes some snap judgments about Autumn but once he realizes how wrong he is he wastes no time correcting it. Autumn is a straight talker and she puts Kenton in his place more often than not. You laugh, cry, and swoon with this story. High praise....more

While Jake has been teasing her about her initial reaction to him since, the day he made a move on Nicole left her running away from him. Jake had marked Nicole at her insistence and they mate, but Nicole seems to be in denial and believes Jake to be a womanizer and just wanting a temporary hook up. Nicole couldn't be more wrong and when she runs off to Vegas with a group of friends, Jake follows. What happens next has Nicole married and acquiring another admirer who is planning to mate her with or without her consent.
Extremely entertaining. Nicole was raised in a family that was only out for themselves and is insecure about anyone truly caring for her. This was a lot of fun and gives you a glimpse into other characters and possible plot lines for future books. Always a pleasure to read one of Milly Taiden's books, guaranteed entertainment....more

Jacobs knows she has to play her role as a showgirl with precision if she wants to discover who is behind it. However when she is discovered she finds herself under the protection of retired Special Forces Calder Murphy, Conway Lewis, Brook Lewis and Lincoln Jones.
All the men are drawn to J.J., but she is fighting within herself as well as with the others. If they can help her come to terms with what has happened, they may just find she can open her heart and explore the chemistry between them.
The 7th in the American Soldier series. I liked this one, I have read a few books that had a showgirl, but this one had kind of a behind the scene view of what it was like. All the men are uber alpha, which is always a good thing in a Dixie Lynn Dwyer book....more

When she meets Michael during the co-ed bachelor party she has no idea who he is or the fact that he is a vampire. Her inhibition out of the way, Sarah is drawn to Michael in a way she knows is something special. �Fun story, the beginning with Sarah on the plane was hilarious. This story definitely could lead to a sequel, you don't know much about Michael's story but it is intriguing and I found I wanted more.
Loving Ms. Wrong by C.J. Ellisson She was not his type but everything Marcus learned about her had him wanting to find out more. Katrina was having a girls night with her friend and the theme was naughty. When Marcus offer to see Katrina home a pair of dice with all sorts of sexual positions peaks his interest, but he is not the only one Katrina wants to find out more about the man who is so opposite herself.
Quite intriguing. I loved the idea of this story with the sex dice and you had a metrosexual man and a free spirit, they mesh. Delightful to read.

Master Jensen has wanted to bond with Anna, but she has been reluctant but this new exercise as a sub may just give her the push she needs to make a decision.
Seductive, this was a creative twist for BDSM stories. I liked that there was a history with Anna and Jensen that is explored even further.
Excellent anthology, each stories heat level elevates as the book goes on. ...more

When they get invited to a party, Jess decides to wallow in the booze that is available and forget how hurt she is. When Brandon arrives though she can't help but be briefly mesmerized by the handsome man, but Jess knows he would never give her full figured self another look.
Jess couldn't be more wrong, Brandon sees Jess and knows she is her mate. The only problem in his way is she is human and knows nothing of their shifter ways.
I was a bit torn on this one, I liked the story overall and it had some very unexpected twists. The issue I was torn up about is she is eighteen and still in highschool, granted she is of age so that is out there but I wished she had been like 20. Maybe if I did not have kids around the same age it wouldn't have bothered me as much because I am old fuddy duddy, but I will say the story is handled with care. Brandon is fantastic, he is sweet and so protective of her you know she is wonderful. Overall excellent read. ...more

Of course he had not expected a stunning beauty or that her tipsy attitude had more to do to the fact she had been drugged, then celebrating a bachelorette party. What Steve had not suspected was that Trisha was his mate, but how do you explain to a human that your a shifter?
This was a delightful read. Trisha is a bit unexpected and you don't see it coming. Loved Steve, once he catches on that Trisha is his mate. Delectable tale....more

New to me author, I thought this was utterly charming and spicy too. Reid is a total jock and alpha male, but the way he handles Lucie is done with such ease and insight on his perspective of how she feels it makes you want to kidnap him for yourself. Fantastic fun....more
