This is a must read free short story for anyone who read and liked Moonlight Becomes You. I really liked getting to see where Jesse and Shane's relationship went following their story. Plus, getting a brief taste of Nick's continued downward spiral into depression and his addictions. Can't wait for his book The Luckiest to be released soon.

What can I say, I loved this hot group of shorts by this dynamic writing duo! It just made me want Nick's story even MORE. More more more more Piper and MJ!!

Excellent collection of three short stories that take place after Moonlight Becomes You , but before the forthcoming The Luckiest . The first one tied up a loose end from Moonlight, and the second two bridge into The Luckiest.

First read Moonlight Becomes You and then, when you want more of Shane, Jesse, Kayden and Nicky, read this. It will help make the wait for The Luckiest a little easier:).

Loved how hot Shane and Jesse were together, so tender and romantic too. And then there's Nicky...

While I still grumble over the way the story went on Moonlight Becomes You (you just need to see my review on the reasons), I cannot really complain on how these three short stories (FREE!) go. The first two stories are about Shane and Jesse, after, and it's sweet and quite romantic. The last one is a bridge to the sequel, "The Luckiest", which will be released in March 2012. I think it'll be interesting to read Nick's story after reading his short story here.

Nothing too special. A couple of brief sweet scenes with Jesse and Shane but mostly just a excuse for quick sex. (view spoiler)

The 3rd short gives us a brief look at Nick I assume to set the stage for his story. After that I'm not sure I really want to read more about him. I am curious though if the authors can actually get me to change my mind about the jerk lol.

This was a quick hot read!! We get to see Shane & Jesse finally come together (well as Shane & Jesse)'s tooth achingly sweet :) We get some some really hott action as well. Now get a glimpse into how he 'handles' his problems, so when you start The Luckiest you'll have a bit of an idea of how he's been dealing.

This was a fabulous series...I enjoyed both books & also the free reads! I'd definitely recommend it to others.

Reading this makes me remember just how much I loved Shane and Jesse. They were so sweet together as kids and I love seeing them together again.

I'm not sure about how I feel about Nick's scene though. Honestly, I really didn't like him much...Until he meets Luka anyway.

Shane has finally figured out that Kayden, his rival, is, indeed Jesse, his proverbial one that got away then have to immediately go onstage. After performing what seems like the longest concert of their lives, they ache to get together, but know they still have to wait a while. The rest of their band is shocked to hear Jesse and Shane declaring their devotion and take the news that Kayden is actually their old band member, Jesse, with varying degrees of acceptance. They all need time t

Beyond Moonlight (Lucky Moon, #1.5) by Piper Vaughn Beyond Moonlight by Piper Vaughn and M.J. O'Shea
This is a collection of three vignettes that take place between Moonlight Becomes You and The Luckiest. The three stories are:
Aftermath - Which is almost completely included in the most recent release of Moonlight Becomes You.
Affirmation - Which is also almost completely included in the most recent release of Moonlight Becomes You.
Allegiance - Which for the first time gives us the story from Nick's point of view.
I'm pretty sure that these were all in the edition of Moonlight Becomes You that I read.

Aftermath– "It felt so perfect. They were finally touching the way it was meant to be. No anger, no resentment, just wonder."

Affirmation– "The last leg of the tour, after that concert at Madison Square Garden, had been like a fantasy. Part of him still expected that any second he'd wake up and it would've all been a dream."

Allegiance– "He started walking, feeling a little unsteady on his feet, with only one t

This set of three vignettes that are the follow up to Moonlight Becomes You were the perfect resolution to that book and prelude to the next one.

I only had one gripe about the first book and that was solved with these little pieces that give closure for Shane & Jesse as well as a peek in to how passionate they can get.

This shouldn't be read in isolation due to it really being just follow-up and part of the previous book's plot nor should it be read before the first book because of serious

Adorable vignettes about the guys from Moonlight Becomes You. I love seeing the stuff that has to be left off the page/comes after the story when I'm really into characters, so these were super fun for me. Loads of Jesse/Shane sexing and cooing over each other, plus a few moments I'd kind of thought about while reading the book ("Wonder if they talked about that...?"), which is always awesome.

But the best was Nicky's vignette at the big gay wedding. Just because he's such a horrible (read: aweso
In this interlude between Moonlight Becomes You andThe Luckiest we get more Shane and Jesse up close and personal. They make up for lost time in this decadent romp. It seems that this also acts as a set up for more of Nick's story and boy does he have some surprises in store... me likee.

I really liked these short stories about Jesse and Shane and getting to see them together after everything they went through to find their HEA in "Moonlight Becomes You". I also really loved Nick's story since it was such a great way to showcase where his head was at in the start of "The Luckiest". He's by far my favorite character in this series, and I love reading things from his perspective. He just doesn't hold back, but you can also see how vulnerable he is and how he needed someone like Lu ...more

I read the second edition of Moonlight Becomes You, so most of this was a re-read of some of the sweeter moments between Jesse and Shane. I was able to skim them because they were somewhat fresh in my memory. But the little bit with Nick at the end definitely set me up for book 2, The Luckiest.

This just keeps getting better! I held off reading these 3 shorts until I could get all 3 together because I am impatient. Once I started, I'd want more. Of course that still holds true because now I want Nicky's story! Awesome as always. (view spoiler). Can't wait for the next one and hope to see much more Jesse and Shane!

This short story falls perfectly between Moonlight Becomes You and The Luckiest.
It opens with some beautiful scenes between Shane and Jesse as they explore their re-found love. It closes with a glimpse of the terribly unhappy, doped up and slutty Nick as a fabulous hook into book #2.

4.5 stars--love these free Lucky Moon shorts! They're a very nice way to wrap up the previous book and intro into the next. A great HEA for Shane and Jesse. Looking forward to reading Nick's story next.

Enjoyed this book as well. I like seeing Jesse & Shane overcome the past to be together and I kind do & don't wanna see what happens next book with Nicky. He's like a train wreck that you seeing gonna happen but can't stop.

these short stories once again involved Jesse & Shane, with the last story mostly being about Nick and the harbinger to The Luckiest---this is after Jesse & Shane finally come together as adults, and what they mean to each other both personally & professionally. Loved them!

Lovely! But I think all scenes are now included in the latest (2014) edition of Moonlight Becomes You
