A couple of big issues with this anthology: 1. Most of the stories aren't full-length novels, they're novellas. 2. Three stories in the middle have cliffhangers, so they aren't even complete stories and the endings to the stories aren't due out until mid-2014.

Most anthologies are marketing tools to introduce people to authors they haven't read, but the inclusion of all these novellas and cliffhangers made this a frustrating experience.

These stories were very hit-and-miss for me, but the price makes it a steal.

Fast and Mine by Sharon Page: DNF
I get that the characters are young, but there is a way to emphasize that without sacrificing writing/content/plot/characterization.

Nice Girls Don't Ride by Roni Loren: 4 stars
Lovely story of repressed good girl and misunderstood, tattooed, yet sweet to the core biker. It was short but complete.

Full Throttle by Adriana Hunter: 2-1/2 stars
It started out so well, then just fizzled. Compl

Riding Desire: Alpha Bad Boy Biker Boxed Set (14 BRAND NEW limited edition contemporary romance books)
This box set includes 14 amazing stories by wickedly amazing authors. Although I did receive ARC, I also bought the box set. Yes I love the authors that much, especially author Marian Tee. I totally love all her work. I got the book yesterday and I have already on my fifth story because I am a fast reader but most importantly I did not want to put it down.

I only paid 99 cents for this, so even one story would make it worth the money. So I can't say don't buy it. But I can say it ticks me off when I'm expecting an actual story and I get part of a serial novel. I *hate* those, and to have one stuck in the middle of an anthology with no warning really pisses me off. Heart Racer just dead ends, and the second book isn't even available until more than a month after this anthology comes out. If you're going to screw your readers, at least make sure the ...more

Obsession by Eden Bradley
This book was a wild ride! I loved the ups and downs in this book, Eden did a wonderful job in writing Janie and Cole's second chance. I can't wait to see more from this new series 'Ink and Iron'. I hope there are books for all the band members and Celine. Great read!

(I have only read certain books in this set and I will update this review after I've read others in it.)

Ready to be captured by some tattooed bikers that are ready to rock a woman’s world and shatter it into a million pieces. That is what you get with this great box set written by 14 great authors. I know shattered me in a million pieces with their writing skills.

I enjoyed some of the stories in this set more than others, but overall it was a very good collection. The main reason I bought it in the first place was because Roni Loren had a story in it, and she's one of my favorite authors.

Fast and Mine by Sharon Page - I enjoyed this most of the way through it. I felt like the end of it dragged a bit though.

Nice Girls Don't Ride by Roni Loren - This remained my favorite throughout the whole collection. I loved Monroe. I loved the whole story. I knew I wou

I am a HUGE biker/rock romance reader so this collection of 14 biker/bad boy books was right up my alley! Unfortunately there were a few stinkers in there...I'm not going to call out names...but you know who you are! The ones that are very high school oriented (too young for my taste) and then there are those "books" that are actually "to be continued" short stories that were frankly not worth buying or reading any more sequels!
HOWEVER...on that note, I will say there were some really HOT and I

It's official I do not like short stories. They play with my head. Short stories get me invested then leave me hanging. Although I felt cheated by all of the stories in this compilation I loved them all. Oh how I wish they were longer. I even preordered some of the excerpts. I did enjoy Lex's story by Avery Aster and I can not wait until her next full book comes out. Wattapad is not the same. If you are looking for a couple if quick, easy and good reads look no further and 1 click this now. ...more

For the price definitely worth 4*'s. Some really good stories, a couple of bummers (my opinion only, you may like them) and a couple with open ends so you have to buy the follow on books to see the outcome, so a very mixed bag for me. Overall, the stories that I enjoyed were really good so 4*'s fro me. ...more

As with all anthologies, there are a few stories that I find a bit meh. Several in this set I DNF'd, due to various reasons. However, some of the others were so fantastic that I would have happily paid for them each on their own. Particularly, Daire St. Denis' 'How to Debauch a Biker' was by far my favourite, but I also quite enjoyed the novellas by Sarah Castille, Sara Fawkes, and Opal Carew. ...more

Exactly what you'd expect from these authors

For the most part I enjoyed this book. There were a couple of stories I didn't like but only because I'm not a fan of those kind of stories. The only book I didn't like was the last one. There was no HEA and that is a major pet peeve of mine.

It took me longer than usual to read this boxed set. I love a good boxed set, but I think there are almost too many books in this one. When they all have the same theme (bikers), the stories all start to be too similar and I start to compare them to each other and I feel like I’m not able to be completely objective in my assessments. Therefore, I had to take numerous breaks while reading this one and it took me a couple weeks to get through all the stories. There were a few that I just couldn’t ...more

Where the individual titles were listed in GR separately, I left specific ratings for only those stories. My rating for the entire set as a whole/average is 3 stars. The stories in this collection, for me, ranged from DNF to probably 4 stars.

Anthologies or boxed sets, I know, are a way for readers to get a taste of new to them authors. I at least usually buy a boxed set if contains a story by an author I usually like, and that was the case here. Given this set was 99 cents when I purchased it,

Fast and Mine by Sharon Page -- 4 stars

I totally loved this one - Sawyer and Claire are a fantastic couple. While things seemed a bit rushed between the pair of them, I totally loved the dynamics between the pair. Plus there's some good action that gets spun into this one from Sawyer's racing. I'm excited to read more from Sharon Page, especially after hearing this is part of a series!

I give up; I didn’t finish but I can’t read any more. I thought I would like this collection since the stories are supposedly about bikers (which I am, and which I write about).

Instead I’ve found the same story 14 times over. By that I mean that every story featured essentially the same character: the bad-boy biker and the nerdy (or shy, or outcast) girl. There’s not a whole lot of character development here. Bor-ing! And, frankly, the biker theme was VERY loosely applied.

All characters are very

Love, love, loved this novella. Great characters, rich emotional intensity, and a glimpse into the sexy, gritty world of outlaw bikers. A great addition to the Legal Heat series but just as easily read as a standalone.

Sophie is a cop who is running from her past. She decides to make a fresh start in Vancouver and meets outlaw biker Ace at her shady brother's party. She decides to throw caution to the wind and bring him home for a one night stand. However, after one night, Ace is smitten and he

Pretty satisfied with this selection. There was one story I didn't care for, but the others were fairly enjoyable to read. A good collection of stories by various authors that I got for a good price.

I like the boxed sets like this, it's a quick way to get introduced to new authors that you otherwise may not be exposed to.

This collection has to do with bad biker boys, which happens to be one of my favorite things to read so there's not much for me to complain about. Granted, they're not all the m

Riding Desire: Alpha Bad Boy Biker Boxed Set

This review is from: Riding Desire: Alpha Bad Boy Biker Boxed Set (14 BRAND NEW limited edition contemporary romance books) (Kindle Edition)
In this Alpha bad boy box set the stories were diverse and true to each authors way of writing. Very entertaining and many stories made me want to read the rest of the series that it was a part of.
Found a new author to follow and read in this set, Marian Tee. Loved the stories that Avery Aster and Mari Carr wrote.

14 stories for a steal! I bought this familiar with the work of about 6 of the authors and found several more to explore and love. Each story is unique while all of them have a Hot Biker at the center!! This collection is perfect for when you have very little free time or an entire weekend. I was looking for characters that I could connect with, instant chemistry, steamy moments and holy hotness alpha male bikers!! This did not disappoint. A great introduction to some talented authors..including ...more

Most of the authors in this boxed set are new to me authors. I'm definitely going to check some of their others books. If you like your books very hot and with Alpha bad boys this is for you. It has something for everyone. Can't go wrong with the price, you get 14 books. The ony down side is some of the books you have to buy the next book to find what happens. Not a fan of that, I like a conclusion to the book I'm reading. ...more

I'm giving this a GENEROUS three star rating. A couple of the books lived up to the Bad Boy Bikers title. Two I never got through two chapters. I'm disappointed when I hoped for lots of hot bikers and got some that only raced. So not what I anticipated with this boxed set. At least I got them all for only $0.99. The couple that were really good paid for that. ...more
