Sometimes anthologies are perfect for my mood, and this collection of three fun, romantic, and sexy contemporary stories were exactly what I've been looking for!

The Trouble With Sexy by Codi Gary

This was a fun, romantic, sexy story about a boss and his employee who become friends, then much more. I enjoyed this and felt the author did a great job of giving us an awesome story with wonderful characters. We get a happily ever after that didn't feel rushed, which can s

Arshia says: Three really cute short stories about women who are stuck in a funk. I was intrigued by one of the stories when I read an excerpt for it online. So I downloaded a DRC and I'm glad I did so. The stories were funny and thankfully not too full of the mushy gushy annoying love stuff.

"If a woman doesn't get any of those heart-shaped boxes of candy or a dozen red roses, she'll sit in front of the TV with a pint of Ben & Jerry's Half Baked, crying pathetically while watching The Notebook."

By now, y'all know I am a HUGE Codi Gary fan. I kind of devour everything she writes. I am sure if I lived near her, I'd find out where she grocery shops who I could read her lists! But, somehow I missed her very first story that got her in with the lovely folks at Avon. 'Trouble With Sexy' s

I really enjoyed these three sexy, cute and sweet Valentine stories by authors Codi Gary, Cheryl Harper and Jaclyn Hatcher. I simply adored the heroes and each woman who captured their hearts was one lucky woman. I liked the humor within the storytelling and I couldn't help but smile and chuckle as I was reading,

The Trouble With Sexy by Codi Gary introduced us to Ryan and Gregg and I loved this coupling. Ryan hates Valentine's Day but her sexy makeover has caught Gregg's attention as well as Ch

Well, it's not Valentine's Day today, but that didn't stop me from getting pulled into this charming anthology. Comprised of three novellas, each one features a couple who find themselves unexpected valentines.
In Codi Gary's "The Trouble With Sexy," photography colleagues Ryan and Gregg keep getting in their own way on their road to hearts and candy. Strong prose and well-written characters keeps this story moving and the reader is treated to a laugh-out-loud ending.

So since the first story is mine, I'll forgo talking about it except to say it's a friends to lovers story with a makeover thrown in and I think it's funny and cute:-)

Love Me Tender was a cute story filled with romantic banter and who doesn't dream about being stuck in a hotel room with a cute guy? Great humor, strong writing style, and two characters you will love! And the situations these two found themselves in as they shared a room (short nightgowns, bad bed head, and a peanut butter and ban

This anthology was written by three authors I have never heard of before. I thought it would be a nice, light read to get me in the mood for Valentine’s Day. What I found was three short stories that were slightly on the cheesy side. The plots were only so-so and the characters just ok.

Not one of the stories really stands out and I don’t have a favorite one either. The last story Love, Guns and Heart-Shaped Chocolate by Jaclyn Hatcher was my least favorite of them all. It may not have put me in

I enjoyed this Valentines Day Anthology from author's: Codi Gary (Trouble with Sexy); Cheryl Harper (Love Me Tender) and Jaclyn Hatcher (Love, Guns & Heart-Shaped Chocolates). Each short story was a quick and easy read.

My favorite was Trouble with Sexy, particularly as I've recently finished Thing's Good Girls Dont Do (also by Codi Gary) & this short novella intertwines with this. I would have rated it 5 Stars if it was a stand alone book!

The other two books we're a good introduction to these au

Trouble with Sexy - fun story about love with the boss/friend, she has a crush on him but doesn't think he sees her like that. He's hooked. Fun story around a photography studio.
Love Me Tender is the follow up story at the RocknRolla Hotel. Great story about two people stuck together in funny circumstances. Loved more about this crazy hotel.
Love, Guns & Heart-Shaped Chocolate - so not what I expected or would have picked on my own but a fun story of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

From the time I could put a Disney Book cassette into my little stereo,and read along, books have held a fantastic distraction. When I was eleven, I decided I wanted to be one of those magical people that brought stories to life. Devouring a book a day sometimes, my first romance novel stuck with me. I've always been a sucker for a happy ending (and the great romantic gesture)and that's what I try ...more
