This is a collection of 11 books each containing a Red Hot Alpha male. I love collections like this especially when they are as such good value as this set is. I enjoyed every story, even though I am usually a bit fussy with certain genres, I read them all and now have new genres to check out. All these authors were new to me too but they won’t be new to me for very long as I plan on 1-clicking a few of their books very soon. Micah really stood out to me as their story seemed so unique, sweet and honest. This is the perfect box set to keep you warm from your head to your toes on those cold winter nights. 5 sizzling stars

I really love Anthologies, great books at a great price ! and this one is no different, 11 novels packed with hot alpha guys, you can't go wrong !! I've only managed to read Micah by Jo Raven but as soon as I've the time, I'm definitely spending the evening with another hottie from this collection. This is the first in a spin off from Jo's highly successful Inked brotherhood series. It follows the tattooist and the apprentices of Damage control, the tatto shop that features in the brotherhood books. First up is Micah, the newly qualified tatto artist. As with all who work at Damage control Micah has have a tough up bringing, and spent some time living on the streets. He is finally getting his life together, but he will never forget the girl who saved his life whilst he was living on the streets - Ev Ev's life changed the night she helped the sick young man she found on the streets, while waiting for the ambulance Ev was run down by a motorbike , breaking her leg and making her family become over bearing. As with all of Jo's pervious books I really enjoyed Micah and Ev's story, I was rooting for them all the way. Ev is such a kind, selfless girl who just wants to help people less fortune then herself. Micah has had such an awful start in life you want him to find love with Ev. Jo has an unique way with words she writes characters that tug at your heart strings but are able to turn you on at the same time. This book is a great addition to the Inked Brotherhood series, can't wait too read more from the boys that work at Damage Control.
Sometimes in life we feel like we can’t go on, we just want to give up. Then, we meet someone who is going to do whatever they can to help us. For Micha that person was Evangeline aka Evie.
One night, months ago, Micha was on the cusp of death, sick, hungry and living on the street. Evie, being the compassionate person that she is, gets Micha the help that he needs. Before he gets the chance to thank her, she is gone. Little do Micha and Evie know; their paths will be forever crossed in both good ways and bad.
I enjoyed this story but I wanted MORE. I wanted to know more about Micha and Evie’s pasts both as individuals and as a “couple”. I felt like there was a little bit more to tell. Before we even meet Evie, we have a feeling that she is someone special to Micha. When we finally realize how special she is, we want them to succeed as a couple. But will that happen, or will outside forces try everything in their power to pull them apart?
This book was well written, the characters all had distinct personalities and the sex was super hot. It definitely lives up to the title Red Hot Alphas. I am looking forward to reading the next installment of the Damage Control series. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Somebody to Love( Rock Stars in Disguise: Tryp) By Blair Babylon
Sometimes no matter how far we get from our past, it always has a way of creeping up on us. The horrors of our past resurface in the form of nightmares and we do all we can to make them go away. Random sex, drugs, alcohol, nothing helps. Nothing until you meet the one. The one who seems to have been put on this earth to make it all go away.
Tryfon aka Tryp, the sexy drummer of Killer Valentine has a part that would make most people cringe. What started out as a normal family life, transformed into a scary, cult lifestyle that banned Tryp from its community. Thankfully Tryp had talents that would eventually land him in one of the hottest indie bands on the planet.
Elfie is a pyromaniac, “roadie” with Killer Valentine, and has been for the last two years. Elfie works her butt off to make enough money for college. When an opportunity to make extra money presents itself, Elfie jumps at the opportunity. This money will get her off the tour and into college quicker. But, is Elfie willing to perform the duties of wing women to a “muso” (slang for musician) or will her dreams of college slip through her fingers?
Wow! This was a great read. I had no idea that this story was going to take me on the roller coaster ride that it did. For me, it started out a little slow, but once it picked up, I was hooked. I loved Tryp’s character, he wasn’t an over the top alpha, but you could tell her was holding back for Elfie’s sake. Elfie was a strong woman who lacked a little bit of confidence, but what she lacked in confidence she made up for in sarcasm and balls.
I loved the story of Tryp’s past. Although it was sad, it made Tryp the person he was and we saw another side of Tryp when he was faced with the decision to save his first love, or put the success of his band first. The author does an amazing job shedding light on a situation that isn’t talked about much in the romance genre. It was different and I enjoyed it.
After reading this book and getting to know the other characters a little bit I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hot Pursuit By Olivia Rigal
Sally worked her butt off, literally, to get her college degree and she plans to put it to good use. Even if it means leaving behind the one man she has grown to love. Slider has caught Sally’s eye since she began working at his strip club. No matter how hard she’s tried to catch his eye, slider is playing hard to get. Sally is ready to give it one more shot and if slider doesn’t give in, she will walk away.
Slider is the VP of the Knights motorcycle club and also an undercover cop. He is looking to be removed from his task and take a much needed break. All seems to be going to plan until someone threatens to take Sally away from him. The cop in him comes out and he will do all it takes to get her back to him safe and sound.
I’ve never read a MC romance before and it was not what I was expecting. I am sure there are more gritty MC’s out there but I am happy that I wet my feet in the genre with this book. I liked the characters but it was a little hard to follow at times with the nicknames and real names. But other than that the story flowed and had me enjoying the ride that the author took me on. I have to say I was expecting more sex in this book, but what I was given was super hot! I needed a cold shower after reading. I am definitely going to read the other books in this MC series. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Meeting Mr. Steele By Melanie Marchande
Kimberly Tuggey has gotten herself into quite a pickle. An indie author who wasn’t seeing many sales writing as herself, decided to write under a pen name. Did I mention her pen name is Landon Steele, sexy “real-life” dominant? Kimberly never thought that taking on a whole new identity would turn her world upside down. Before she knows it, Landon is being invited to morning talk shows and Kimberly had to think of something and fast.
Enter Josh. He is an up and coming actor who really needs a break. Thankfully for Josh, Kimberly has an offer that he can’t refuse. Will Josh accept Kimberly’s offer or will Kimberly have to admit that Landon Steele isn’t all he’s cracked up to be?
I really enjoyed this story. The interaction between Josh and Kimberly was great. There were times while reading that I wanted Josh to go full out dominant on Kimberly. I have to say, Kimberly bothered me a little bit. I wish that she was as confident in herself as she was in her writing. Josh is exactly what Kimberly needs. Whether or not she believes that is another story.
The author intertwines the sweetness and the sexy perfectly in this book. The author left me wanting at certain parts of the book but she redeemed herself in others. I would highly recommend this book. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Mixed Up By Sky Corgan
Let me start off by saying FINALLY! This book had the more that I have been looking for. Besides the less than believable first meeting between the characters, I was able to look passed that and go on the hot, sexy emotional roller coaster the author was taking me on.
Kira is pretty down on her luck and looking for a job. She needs the money so she doesn’t have to ask her parents to pay her rent, yet again. She is supposed to be on her own and independent, not relying on mommy and daddy to get her out of a financial jam. Being a receptionist isn’t her dream job, but it will help pay the bills for the time being.
Thinking her luck couldn’t get any worse, she is running late for her most recent interview and just so happens to walk in on her future, could-be boss while he is BUCK NAKED. Too aroused to be embarrassed Kira can’t take her eyes off of the muscled perfection that is Parker Bernier.
Parker Bernier is used to getting what he wants, and wanting Kira is no different. Growing up in poverty has made Parker the grab em by the balls, no holds bar man that he is today. Parker is the epitome of an alpha male and I loved every second of it. I felt a little dirty while reading this book, but I didn’t care. This is everything I wanted and more.
The sex was scorching hot, but I enjoyed the story as well. I had my fingers crossed for a little M/F/M action but it never got to that point . The ending left me hanging a little bit because I wanted more details about what happened to the characters, but overall I truly enjoyed this story. Great job Sky!!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Midnight Moonlight By V.J. Chambers
The beginning of this book was a little hard for me to follow, but once I understood what was going on I was able to get into it. Calla is a woman who has let herself go after her recent divorce. Looking to get back out into the world, she decides to go to a town carnival. While there, something happens to Calla that has the possibility of changing her life. When she wakes up in a dark room she isn’t sure what to expect. She knows she isn’t alone, but when she finds out who is there with her she is surprised.
Ryder is a werewolf who was trapped in his wolf form for the last ten years. Now, back in his human form, it is hard for him to readjust to human civilization. His brother Jasper has kidnapped Calla to help Ryder fully return to his human form. Ryder senses something in Calla, something that his hasn’t sensed in a very long time.
As much as she tried to fight it Calla is drawn to Ryder. In this book people know about werewolves and interact with them. However, Calla is cautious around the wolves and she has reason to be. She can’t help her feelings that are developing for Ryder, and the fact that he is gorgeous isn’t helping her fight those feelings.
I enjoyed this story. There was the perfect mix of action, suspense and romance. It was my first journey into the world of werewolves and I truly enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading more of Ryder and Calla’s story. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sorority Saint By Daizie Draper
Everyone has a deep desire hidden away for fear of humiliation. For Shayna, that desire is the need to be dominated. A sweet, Christian girl, Shayna is saving herself for marriage, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t yearn for something more. She seeks out her desires at the BDSM club, club XX. On her way in Shayna is mugged and her world is set on a tailspin because of it. Little does Shayna know, she is going to find everything she needs and more, in the house Dom, Jason.
Jason Delaney is the House Dom at Club XX. He’s cocky, confident and incredibly sexy. Women fall at his feet, literally and he loves every second of it. An indie musician, Jason pays the bills by dominating women on a daily basis. Much like Shayna, something seems to be missing from Jason’s life but he isn’t quite sure what. I am usually hesitant to read BDSM books because they go one of two ways for me, either TOO extreme or TOO soft. I am no expert, but this was the perfect medium. I loved how sweet Jason was with Shayna but dominating at the same time. Jason and Shayna played off each other perfectly. The only qualm I had about their relationship is how they were angry with each other in one sentence and in the next she was willingly going down on him. I mean, make him wait at least a paragraph LOL. All in all, this was a hot, steamy read that left me sweating and feeling a little dirty all at the same time. I loved it!
This was by far my favorite BDSM read to date. A must read for those who aren’t extreme BDSM lovers but love a little kink. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Crossed (Prequel to the Crossed Series) By Lacey Silks
Grace Brooks has worked hard for everything she has. Estranged from her family for the last ten years, she has grown close with her BFF Emma Cross and her family. Tragedy has brought Emma and Grace together and they have dealt with their grief in different ways. Emma sleeps around and Grace gives her heart away too quickly. When Hunter Reeve sees Grace, he knows there is something about her, something that just might change his life.
Hunter is introduced into Grace’s life in an unconventional way. After returning from an undercover mission, Hunter enters Grace’s salon looking more caveman than leading man. Is it wrong that I wanted Hunter to remain a “caveman” for the rest of the story? There was something about Grace’s description of caveman sex that was very arousing. It didn’t hurt that I was picture a real life semi-caveman while reading.
I truly loved this story. From the first page I was hooked. I could tell that this book was going to have everything I want in a good read and more. Passion, suspense, humor and conflict. I had a feeling that I knew where this book was going to go before I began reading. But I was pleasantly surprised with the way the author went with this story. I love when an author has me thinking one thing and then goes in a totally different direction.
I would highly recommend this book and I plan on reading the rest of the books in this series. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Get to Me By Holly Hood
Is it wrong that whenever a book involves one woman and two male love interests that I want there to be some ménage action? No? Good!
I like when a story has two main characters who have a past. I feel like it makes their story more believable. This is the first book that I have read from Holly and I was pleasantly surprised.
Much like Savy, I felt torn between the two men, Ryker and Jackson. She has known Ryker all her life and reconnects with him after years of distance. Jackson is her older, sexy boss, who isn’t afraid to let Savy know how he feels about her. I won’t lie, I was jealous that Savy had these two fine men pining for her affections.
This book had a few twists and turns that I did not see coming. I anticipated something, but wasn’t sure exactly what. I like the way the author went with the story, but again, I wanted MORE! I hope that there will be more to Savy’s story. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Electric Blue Butterfly (Will o’ the Wisp Series #1) Irma Geddon
What would you do if the one you were marrying was your childhood love but you had no idea? This is the case for Constance. She marries William in an arranged marriage, not knowing who she is. On their wedding night, before they even cut the cake William is taken from her. Heartbroken over the loss of her new husband, Constance learns that there is more to her deceased husband than meets the eye.
William has known Constance since a young age. A terrible accident when they were younger, causes William to distance himself from her. William thinks he finally has her and can tell her everything there is to know about him, but the universe has different plans and takes her from her before he gets the chance.
This was a different story than the ones I am used to reading. I am intrigued and plan to read the other books in this particular series. I was transported to another time while reading this book, even if it wasn’t the author’s intention, I felt like it took place in another world. The love the Constance and William have for one another is very sweet and I liked the direction that the author took this story. It was a great prequel to the other stories to come. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sweetest Temptations By J.C. Valentine
Abby is a baker who is finally living her dream, and opening a bakery of her own.
Kennedy is a sexy firefighter who will stop at nothing to protect the ones he loves.
When Abby first met Kennedy I knew that there was going to be something sexy and sweet between them and the author did not disappoint. I think I got hotter reading about their foreplay than I did with their sexual encounters. Don’t get me wrong their sex was hot, but there is just something about a sexy man licking chocolate off a female that is totally hot.
I loved both Abby and Kennedy’s characters. I felt that they were real and I could be friends with them in real life. Kennedy’s inner alpha male was great and I loved seeing that part of him. Although he had his alpha side in the bedroom, he also had the protective side to him.
There was a great mix of passion and suspense in this book that kept me turning the pages. I personally wish there was just a little bit more to the story in regards to the end, but otherwise I really enjoyed it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The boxed set is great and one filled with lots of fun reads!
This review is for Meeting Mr. Steele by Melanie Marchande.
Kimberly and Josh… Kimberly is a writer whose books didn’t get noticed when she wrote under her own name so she invented a new persona and now writes as Landon Steele – a dom who writes stories from a dom’s perspective.
Landon Steele gets invited to appear on a prestigious morning talk show – but there is no Landon Steele. Kimberly’s friend suggests that she hire someone to play Mr. Steele. Enter Josh – an aspiring actor.
What follows is how their relationship develops in spite of Kimberly’s insecurities due to being a curvy girl and past relationships gone wrong.
The story moves at a good pace and is short enough to finish in one sitting and, best of all, there is no cliffhanger.
If you enjoy funny, snarky, romantic comedy you should like this story a lot.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I also received an ARC of Somebody To Love (Rock Stars in Disguise: Tryp) by Blair Babylon.
Tryp is a seriously troubled rock star and Elfie is a troubled pyrotechnics technician for the band Killer Valentine. This was a great story and there is no cliffhanger.
Elfie is tasked with babysitting Tryp in addition to her duties as a pyrotechnics technician. They grow close and during the telling of their love story you learn about their troubled pasts. This story is part of the Rock Stars in Disguise series but you don't need to have read any of the other stories to enjoy this one.
I have to say that I don't usually read Rock Star romances but I have really enjoyed reading the books in this series. If you usually read Rock Star romances then I know you will really like this one. A word of caution - there is a lot of strong/adult language in this book. If you are offended by liberal use of four letter words this story might not be for you.
Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian-I Dig Good Books.
This box set comprises of 11 books. 1 that I did not read, I'll explain why shortly, and 10 that I did. Rather than review each book seperately, I'm just gonna go with the whole set as one, and just tell you which I liked and which I didn't.
I am not of fan of the latest craze, that is, writing books in the first person, present tense, and from multiple points of view. Usually, I;m all for everyone having their say, I really am, but not when its first person, present tense. Consequently, I did not enjoy this box set as much as I have others, simply because 4 or 5 of these books are written as such, and THATS why I did not read one.
But I loved Midnight Moonlight, by VJ Chambers, a werewolf story, that was a little different, and I think I may well look for other books by this author. ALSO, I LOVED Sweetest Tempations, JC Valentine. Even though its only in Abby's POV, it was really good. I have read books by Valentine before, and enjoyed them.
Some new authors, to me, and thats why I love these box sets, you get an introduction to new pieces of work, at a price that even if you hate one or two, the rest will make up for it. AND this box set contains books never previously published :-)
We get bad boys, good girls. First love, Second chances. Undercover cops and badass bikers. Sexy firemen and a wolf who lost himself. Lots to please everyone, and for the awesome price of 77p/99c its a bargain!
4 stars for the overall box set, but 5 for Midnight Moonlight and Sweetest Temptations.
If you’re looking for steamy, sexy read, look no further! This anthology has 11 full length novels. Each novel is debuted in this anthology, so you should get it while you can, before you have to go out and buy each book separately! I was drooling over every guy in this box set. They are possessive, dominant personalities, with that special brand of sweet adoration for the women they fall for. It would be so difficult for me to choose a favorite, I can’t imagine you won’t have the same problem! From Micah on to each and every book, I fell in love over and over. Most of the time, I truly enjoyed the heroines as well. A happy ending is must for me when it comes to romance and each of these books left me with that satisfied feeling. I could see the couples walking into the sunset to a new and happy life. When they say “Red Hot,” they are completely serious. So, if you’re looking for tame romance, move on. These heat in these books had me turning up the air conditioning. The passion between the couples is sexy, raw, and oh so delicious. Each book is by a different author and they are uniquely different, which kept me reading until the last page. Several of the authors’ other books are now on my TBA, especially if they involve secondary characters from these books! A good anthology always leads me to a new author and their other books!
An ARC was generously provided to me for a fair and honest review
I was provided a copy of the book set by the Authors for an honest review.
WOW HOT HOT HOT, This is a set of 11 books, and let me just tell you that each one of the book are great, some of this book made me laugh, mad, and cried, but I love every single one of them, I cant not write a review for each book, since I read them one right next after the other, cause I couldn't put the book down. I love each of the book, The Authors did a great job on these books.
Every time I finish reading a book, I couldn't wait to read the following book, and find out what the book is about, now I am gone have to re-read them and write their own review on their own page. But I have to say that I really enjoy reading this set, and love the Alpha Male of each book, cant tell which one I love the most, but I could tell you that the Sex Scene are Hot.
Authors Jo Raven, Blair Babylon, Olivia Rigal, Melanie Marchande, Sky Corgan, V.J. Chambers,Daizie Draper,Lacey Silks,Irma Geddon,Holly Hood, J.C. Valentine. THANK YOU for INTRODUCING ME TO THIS AWESOME CHARACTERS AND THIS AMAZING BOOKS I love it.
Haven't gotten through all these super sexy fun reads but what I have makes this a great collection. Rockers, actors, and billionaires make these stories fantastic! They are sizzling and will give hours of entertainment. I highly recommend this!
Mixed Up by Sky Corgan - Super entertaining and sizzling! Kira desperately needs a job but when the interviewer shows up naked she's not sure this is the job for her! But he is one hot billionaire so maybe.... You'll love this story!
Somebody to Love by Blair Babylon - I loved this story! Hot Rocker Tryp and quiet roadie Elfie shouldn't work but they do! She calms his crazy and he brings her to life. This is a great romance.
I have to disclose that I only had the chance to read the story by Holly Hood: and this is my review. This was not your typical love triangle. To be truthful I want more Ryker and keep asking myself why. They have s past that I feel they got cheated out of yet Jackson is here now and very supportive. A shared past, a new interest and hidden secrets. This book provides us with good characters, enough of a storyline to satisfy yet keeps plenty more secrets to pull us back for another book. I believe the author has another successful series on her hands and I for one look forward to seeing how events unfold.
This book is 11 books in one, all based round sexy Alphas. there is a sexy alpha for everyone in this book. From Artists , Rock Stars and more. All of which will have your toes curling and your belly doing somersaults and they get you all excited. each book is written in very different styles and some were better then others but I definitely think they were all worth the read. I have to be truthful and say all these authors are new to me and Most of them I will be checking out more of there work. I f there work are as good as they are in this one I don't think ill be disappointe
I loved the stories in this set. Some I loved more than other and some I thought were cut short. That though didn't deture my want to read them at all!! All of these authors are gifted at what they do. I personally and a damaged boy fan so much!! The accompanying stories were delightful just as well. I did very much enjoy the banter between the main characters in Meeting Mr.Steele. Great job to all that were written it was a pleasure to read.

I really enjoyed this book it was a first for me by this author. Can not wait to read more about this Inked up lost boys.
Somebody to love - Blair Babylon This is Tryp's book he is the drummer in the band Killer Valentine
Elfie is the young Pyro tech who has been with the band for a few years she has just turned 19 Elfie is stuck with taking a very drunk Tryp back to his hotel room one night and god the things she learns while he is semi coherent. Tryp is such a jerk and he even has Elfie thinking he died after his drunken stupor.
I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end.
Hot Pursuit - Olivia Rigal This is a fantastic MC story.
We have Sally a young woman working as a stripper to get herself through college. Slider is who her heart wants but he has given her mixed signals since she started working there. He is the VP of the motorcycle club. Slider is holding a secret and he is not sure how Sally would feel if she found out who he really is.
Everything is put on the line when Sally is abducted.
We have rival motorcycle gangs supporting each other , dirty cops, good cops and a whole lot of secrets spilling. Fantastic book I enjoyed this one.
Meeting Mr. Steele -Melanie Marchande
This book was comical and oh so romantic. We have a book author who is female but posing as a male author. When things come to a big hit she is invited to be on a tv show. Well she has to hire someone to portray her. She hires a sexy guy with tats who just needs a bit of polishing. Now when he has to try out things get pretty dang hot considering the books this author writes are sexual in nature.
Kimberly and Josh go from acting to not so much acting. Things get spicy and oh so toasty in this book.
I enjoyed it very much

Red hot Alphas is a Collection of original unread books wrote by 11 top authors. The boxset has abit of everything for everybody, billionaires, tattooed hotties, rockstars, MC's, hot undercover cops, smoking hot actors, werewolf shapeshifters, musicians, private investigators, hot firemen, professional skateboarder and a nobleman. The stories are all about 140 pages long each, which I felt was a good length to give you a good all round story. I hate leaving books part way through reading them, so this boxset was perfect for me. I could read 1 book quickly and leave it if I was busy. I didn't have to worry about leaving a book part way through. I loved I could go through and read the book in any order I felt like. If I fancied a rockstar story I could read that, then go to a shapeshifter story. I really enjoyed the stories throughout the book. They were some stories I liked more than others, but each book had good points throughout and we're all enjoyable in their own way. My favourite stories were sweetest temptation by J.C Valentine and Micah (Damage Control 1) by Jo Raven. However the book I enjoyed the most in the boxset was Rockstar in Disguise by Blair Babylon.
Somebody to love (Rockstars in disguise) by Blair Babylon.
I love Rockstar books so I knew before i started reading this box set that Somebody to love (Rock Stars in Disguise: Tryp) was more than likely going to end up being one of my favourite, if not my favourite book in the whole set. I loved Tryp. I felt a instant connect to him. He was a very damaged person at the start of the story who needed a lot of help and a special person to pull him out of the black hole he was in. Tryp has a lot of success with his band as the drummer of Killer Valentine. He has only just turned 21 and his life is revolved around women and excessive drinking. Tryp doesn't just drink abit every night, he drinks until he passes out every night. He doesn't want to feel , remember or face his past so this is the only way he copes. Tryp pulls at your heart stings right from the start. I wanted to know why he was like this but at the same time I wanted Tryp to take charge of his past and start trying to move through the pain of his past for his own sake and the bands. I could tell he wasn't a bad person right rom the start and he didn't deserve to be unhappy. I wanted him to enjoy the life and success he had worked so hard to get with his band, not ruin his life and other people's dreams with his drinking. Elfie is a pyrotechnics technician for Tryps band for the last 2 years. She is running from her own demons and doesnt need to have someone's else's troubles on top of her own, but the band is starting to crack because of Tryps behaviour. So the bands manager assign Elfie to "babysit" Tryp and try and keep him on the straight and narrow and stop the drinking. Tryp isn't exactly happy about the arrangement,but Elfie forces herself on him. She gets him up on time, feeds him, gets him to all his appointments and eventually starts to be a very good friend that he can relie on. Reading the journey of two broken and hurt people finding each other and saving each other was emotional and beautiful. Elfie really did become the best thing that could of ever happened to Tryp. I loved the bond and friendship they made and that eventually Tryp was able to share his problems with her. There whole friendship was very raw and delicate and when Tryps past came back to haunt him will Elfie be able to draw strength to stand by Tryp though? There was a lot testing both characters throughout the whole story. It wasn't smooth sailing and a lot of the book was extremely heartbreaking. I enjoyed the story and watching a "forced relationship" turn to a amazing and trusting friendship to much more. Both characters have bad pasts and issues, but have coped in different ways. Elfie is the stronger person from the start despite her past. Watching her pass the strength to Tryp to heal him was beautiful, but without knowing she was also healing herself. Her strength, determination and whole personality was wrote very well.
This box set was a good read and a absolute bargain for 11 original stories by great authors. Defiantly worth buying.

A Rockstar in Disguise: Tryp by Blair Babylon
The drummer of an up and coming Rock Band and the pyrotechnic engineer, hmm, how will this work out.
Elfie, is the young pyro-tech for Killer Valentine. She has a past that will tear at your heart. She had to leave and ended up working in a job she loves and is damn good at. Sadly, the rock stars need some help and the “roadies” get assigned one. She gets assigned to Tryp, the drummer. He’s manwhore that gets drunk nightly and has no sense of the world.
Tryp, drinks to pass out, to not think, to block out the past. His one staple is the chick that’s in charge of the pyrotechnics for the shows. They travel together and he knows she wakes his drunk ass up daily, she has breakfast delivered and leaves after his mandatory radio interviews.
As the time passes they start to develop a bond, a friendship. One night all the secrets from their past are shared. Little did he know what damage the sharing and courage he developed would cost him. His past comes back to haunt him. Will his friendship with Elfie be affected? Will she stick around or leave like everyone else?
These two are tested in ways many are but will their bond survive the challenges they will face? This was my first Blair Babylon book and I was on a rollercoaster. Tryp and Elfie need to read by all, a raw story of friendship and love. Truly only the strong survive. I want more of these two.

This is the best way to get to know authors you have not read before and get back in touch with those that you love.
In this set I got to meet J.C.Valentine for the first time and believe me this is one author I continue to read. Sweetest Temptations is her story and the name of the bakery. (Wish there was one close to me) that Abigail opens. As with all families with where there is an unmarried sibling, her's is no different. Her sister is constantly trying to set her up. There is a hot fireman in the picture and of course there has to be some weird happenings thrown in the mix to bring these two together...or does it?
Someone to Love (Rock Stars in Disguise TRYP)by Blair Babylon Now I discovered Blair in another boxed set (see what I mean) and I was lucky to now have Tryp's story in this set. Yes his story is also a stand alone book on Amazon and other places. Tryp is part of Killer Valentine and does a lot of self medication to cover up things he can't handle from his past. Elfie is his keeper of sorts and kinda he is hers. We get to see some social issues being addressed and we also get to see the happy ending that is so rightly deserved. Blair Babylon is an author I really look forward to each book as they are deep and really have a sexy sides too,

Mix Up By Sky Corgan - An Intriguing and Compelling Story - Part of the Red Hot Alphas Box Set
A case of mistaken identity allows Kira the opportunity of becoming a massage therapist for the ever naked Parker. As their relationship develops, lack of dates outside of the office, insecurities about Parker’s previous love-life, her friend’s doubts that Parker has feelings for her and the emergence of Kira’s previous cheating boyfriend, who also happens to be Parker’s friend and business partner, all conspire to enthral the reader. Kira is in love and is devious in her methods of ridding herself of her insecurities, but there is a happy ending to the story. There is also an unusual twist when Parker asks Kira to divulge one of her fantasies to him, which he enacts. Although I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, I must say it thoroughly captivated me and I have no hesitation in recommending it to other readers.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Okay, so I could review these all separately but I'd rather talk about the whole box set! Let me just tell you that each book has a different plot line. However each book has an alpha male and generally some plucky females. I can tell you that it is really interesting, and exciting to be able to read all of these together and find some new authors and seasons to give a chance! Each book will keep you on the edge of the seat and begging for more.
At the same time there is some emotional drama but there is also some books that focus more on action and that keeps things from getting any bit of repetitive.
Another great boxed set - so many wonderful authors, so many great stories, so many hot alphas! I've read one book so far, and can't wait to dig into the rest. Why don't you join me?
Mixed Up, by Sky Corgan Sky Corgan knows how to write hot sex, and that’s what she does in this story. Parker and Kira have sex EARLY in the book, with their relationship slowly growing but not blossoming for quite some time. Kira is still recovering from a heart previously broken, and Parker longs for a woman he can’t have. Both exes make appearances - toxicity abounds. This is a stand alone (no cliff hanger!) and it does have a mildly HEA. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
This was a great story that had me swooning and on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen next. Abby just wants to live her dream, but what happens when someone else wants to destroy that dream? To what lengths will they go? Truly a great story of finding love with some suspense.
J.C. Valentine has written another great story with characters that you can’t help but to fall in love with and a storyline that grips you from the beginning. I could not put this book down.
Hot Pursuit Iron Tornadoes MC by Olivia RIGAL 5 Stars Wedding, Kidnapping and lots of action Loved this next book of the series and yet still a self-contained story. Lots of action and some loving in this book. Well written and very entertaining. Some surprises along the way. This is Slider and Sally’s story and it’s a good one. Highly recommend this book as well as the other in this series.
11 Books for a Great Price and a perfect way to try out a different genera. If you like Hot Sexy Strong male characters then this is a great way to get a heavy dose of them. I enjoyed all eleven books and got to experience some 'new to me' authors in the process.
As with all box sets you will have favorites, but each of the books have their own strengths and draws and I am looking forward to checking out more books by many of the authors represented in this set.
Red Hot Alpha is a collection of 11 stories. I love anthologies, and this one introduced me to new authors and I will definitely be checking out more their work. I loved all the stories so it hard to pin point a favourite to review, I will try and get a review for each up at some point.
I would recommend if you love collections/anthologies, you might like me discover some great new(to you) authors.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review for MNP
Let me start by saying this is a steamy set of novels. You will not want to put them down once you start.
Micah – Jo Raven
This book is different from the rest. Micah is a young man who has made his way from the streets to working in a tattoo shop (Damage Control) with his friends. He knows Evangeline, but she doesn’t remember him. But her ex will stop at nothing to keep her away from the streets and the people she wants to take care of.
This book will keep you turning the pages. Micah knows that he should tell the truth, but he can’t. Ev is a feisty woman who won’t stop until she can be able to do what makes her happy. This story will keep you looking for the bright side to each person. I look forward to reading the other books in the Inked Brotherhood series to get to know the other guys in this book of bad boys.
Somebody to Love – Blair Babylon
Tryp is your typical rock star with his booze, drugs and women. But then Elfie comes along making him eat oatmeal and orange juice. These two are inseparable from the beginning. She falls in love with him and he values her and who she is. But Tryp has to make peace with his past and he does.
These two are perfect for each other. They both need to be healed in only a way the other knows how to do. Elfie has a past that no one knows about and she wants to save money for school. Tryp just wants to survive through the night. This was well written and kept you interested in the book. This is a good beginning to the series and will make you want to check out the other books.
Hot Pursuit – Olivia Rigal
Slider is an undercover cop who is in love with Sally, but doesn’t want to get mixed up in a relationship while he working. Sally gave it one more shot to get Sliders attention before she leaves for a new job. She is highly successful. From that moment on, she knows that she is his now. Slider will stop at nothing to get her back.
This if one of the few MC books that I have read. I was very interested in the characters and getting to know each person. This was a quick read that I couldn’t put down and will keep an eye out for more stories by this author.
Meeting Mr. Steel – Melanie Marchande
Kimberly didn’t know when she wrote her book it would be so popular… How was she to know that Landon Steele would be adored by everyone, but there’s a problem he’s not real. Kimberly made him up and now she has to find someone to play his role. That’s when she meets Josh. Little does she know that Josh is going to turn out to be so much more than what she originally hired him to for.
I love this book. I love that this wasn’t your typical woman and that she had normal faults. That she didn’t think of herself as perfect. But then there was Josh who wasn’t overly confident in his role, but then was honest with her. Then the heat really got turned up. This is a perfect novel to get to know each character and will make you laugh. Can’t wait to read more from Melanie Marchade.
Mixed Up – Sky Corgan
This book was hot from the beginning! Kira shows up late for her interview with Parker and what she finds when she shows up is a big surprise. She is mistaken for someone else and it turns out to be the best thing that happens to her. Kira has to be honest with her past when it is right in front of her face.
Love both characters, Parker is very honest and Kira is unsure of herself in the beginning and starts to let Parker get close. I was left wondering about their relationship towards the end. Kira makes Parker deal with his feels and won’t let him get away with anything. All the characters are well described and I felt like I knew how they all worked together. I’m looking forwards to getting to know them a little more in the future.
Midnight Moonlight – VJ Chambers
Calla is trying to find herself after a recent divorce. She is trying to get back out into the world and then she meets someone that will change her life. Since Jasper has kidnapped Calla to help his brother Ryder. Ryder has recently turned back into a human after being a werewolf for the past ten years. She falls for Ryder and she doesn’t know how to stopper herself from fighting her feels for him.
This was a good story. There was enough suspense that will keep you turning the pages. The characters were well written and I enjoyed how they interacted with each other. Both characters have adjustments to make, but will have to figure out how to do it.
Sorority Saint – Daizie Draper
Shayna is a sweet woman who has been saving herself and is having troubles containing her desires. So she has gone to a place where she can learn, Club XX. But on the way she is mugged and everything is out of her control. Jason is the owner of the club and would be taking care of Shayna.
These two are sweet together. Jason is the perfect balance for Shayna. He will dominate her, but without going to the extreme. This book is perfect for those out there who like a little domination with our romance. This is a great book and an easy book to get lost in.
Crossed – Lacey Silks
This book will have you hooked from the beginning. Hunter is a guy that is a little rough around the edges when he returns from a mission. Grace is a hard working woman who is estranged from her family but has gotten close to her best friend Emma Cross. This was only the beginning of Grace’s life changing.
This is a wonderful love story from the beginning. Lots of passion from each person who needed a little something in their lives. The author added humor into the book which made the story more relatable. Do not miss this book!
Get to me – Holly Hood

He isn’t afraid to show his feelings for Savy. Both men are trying to get her attention, but she will have to decide or share her life.
This book will have you anticipating what is going to happen next. The author keeps the surprises coming and you’ll be left with wanting more and trying to decide which side you really like. I couldn’t put this book down. I loved both characters!!
Electric Butterflies – Irma Geddon
Constance has an arranged marriage. She has married her childhood friend without knowing it, until he is taken from her on their wedding night. Constance will learn more about her new husband in the coming days. She’ll learn that maybe he wasn’t really who she thought he was. This series was very different and I plan on reading the rest. I had to know what was going to happen and how. Constance and William love each other very much, but that isn’t always enough. This is a prequel to other stories from this author.
Sweetest Temptations J.C. Calentine
Abby is living her dream and has opened her own bakery. Kennedy protects everyone that he loves no matter the cost. Abby has a blind date, Kennedy. She hasn’t stopped thinking about him from the first day she met him in her sweet shop.
Sweet passion and suspense in this book. Although I felt the end was a little rushed, it all came together. Both characters kept me turning the page and getting pulled into the book a little more. Don’t skip this book.
Crossed by Lacey SilksOne word, YUM!! If a caveman was brought into your beauty salon would you be willing to clean him up? Well, that is what Grace is instructed to do along with driving him to a mental hospital....say what?!?! After getting to know Hunter (the caveman) you might wish you were Grace. Hunter and Grace have so much chemistry they can't help dropping trou wherever they are: restaurant, dressing room, elevator, hot-tub, I can go on and on but I think you get the picture. Their story has a serious undertone to it but there are parts that had me laughing , which I think is a perfect mix. This is a Spinoff from the Layers Trilogy but you do not have to read them in order to follow what is going on in this series but it does make it better if you do.
Hot Pursuit by Olivia Rigal Sally and Slider's story has been in the making for two years....Sally is ready to cut ties with him if he doesn't make his move and soon and when she over hears him say "they are just friends" at Mimi and David's wedding she's done. Paul "Slider" Luck an undercover police officer and Motorcycle Club VP has one rule "Don't touch the entertainment" While he's in love with Sally he believes that he isn't good enough for the college student that dances to put herself through school. But when push comes to shove he's going after what he wants. I love the chemistry between Sally and Slider and I really enjoyed watching them finally get what they both have wanted for a long time. This has been a really good series and I hope to see more books on the Iron Tornadoes.
Ok, I've just started this box set and have only read 2 books so far but from what I've read, this is a great deal of sexy alpha males that will keep you entertained for hours at a great price!
Crossed (Silks, Lacey): Grace has just met a caveman and isn't sure what to do with him. When he suddenly saves her life looking like a model (who knew a shave could be so effective) she finds herself immediately drawn to his strength and confidence. Hunter knew from the moment he saw feisty Grace that she was the one for him, now how does he convince her that he is the one for her. Hunter has been investigating her family for 3 years, a family she hasn't seen for 10 years, but she becomes the key to finally bringing them to justice for all their illegal dealings. This puts Hunter and Grace together almost 24/7 … will Grace finally admit that Hunter is "the one" for her? Can she escape the betrayal of her family? What will Hunter sacrifice to protect Grace?
Get To Me (Hood, Holly): Savy is a gutsy, determined woman that is choosing to follow her own path and not the one her parents have set out for her. She decides to quit college and go work at a homeless shelter where she won't get paid. As she makes these big changes in her life, a blast from her past resurfaces, Ryker. Savy and Ryker were best friends until the night of the car accident and then Ryker disappeared. He is now a famous skate boarder but his feelings for Savy never went away. Of course, she never thought he liked her romantically so it's fun when a chance encounter rekindles a spark. Then we meet Savy's new boss, Jackson, and boy is he yummy! I didn't expect a love triangle though Ryker claims he doesn't want a relationship because he travels constantly yet we see jealousy from him when Savy leans more on Jackson instead of him when her world starts to crumble. Secrets from the past are revealed, something that I was totally surprised with, which forces Savy to really evaluate what's important. There is more to their story but we don't end on a huge cliff which I appreciate though I am anxious to see how their story continues.
