A great collection from some pretty amazing authors!

Getting Out of Hand
First I have to say I have read and loved all of Erin's books. This is just makes the list longer. This was truly an instant true love book. I so so so love nerdy men and Mason was a a well built nerd at that! Then there was Adrianne. She was such a neat change from other female characters. I loved her dirty talk. You do not always see that in female characters as the instigator of such talk. But she was so fun to read. The

Getting Out of Hand by Erin Nicholas

I just loved this story. This is the first book of Erin's new series set in Sapphire Falls and can I just say Welcome to Sapphire Falls! This is the story of Adrianne Scott and Mason Riley. Oh Mason! I loved him! I have a soft spot for nerds and I love that he found someone who truly understood him in Adrianne. Their instant chemistry was amazing. I laughed out loud several times reading this book. I fell in love with all of the characters in this town and

This was a great box set. I loved the stories, each author bringing their own touch to the Holidays. There were some editing errors sprinkled throughout every story. It' wasn't just one. But they aren't huge mistakes! Just some small ones here and there.

TWELVE DATES OF CHRISTMAS by Jessie Evans - I feel like Lula fell for Carter's story too quick, but this story was a super sweet romance. I love second chances!

On Any Given Sundae - 4.5 stars

This is my first Marilyn Brant book and I just love the way she writes. This book is funny and sweet, and I wanted to eat ice cream and eclairs the whole time I read it! Lizzy (Elizabeth) and Rob (Roberto) are brought back together after not seeing each other for years to help run their uncles ice cream shop. Elizabeth has had a crush on Rob her entire life and Rob doesn't like the idea of being back in his home town. They both have hang ups from high school that

For the most part this was pretty good. I skimmed through some of it, but really enjoyed Karen Erickson and Sawyer Bennett's contributions. Of course, they are two of my favorite authors, so in my opinion, they didn't disappoint,

The price of this collection is worth it for those two stories alone. Neither has ever written anything I haven't enjoyed.

A great collection of stories that I truely enjoyed. I met some new authors and will now be purchasing more of their work. This is a collection totally worth purchasing. Will continue my review shortly about each of the stories later.

This has to be the best first page to a book I've ever read. I loved it! This is a great story of finding love in unlikely places.

Finding the Right Girl by Violet Duke
Before you even start this book, grab a fresh box of tissues and keep it close. This was an amazing story about some pretty amazing people. This Nice Girl to Love series, which also flows into the Cactus Creek series, is a must read for anyone who loves those emotional contemporary romances with

Sweet to You- Jessie Evans
Great continuation in the Fire and Icing series. Just loved Maddie and Jamison's love story. Couldn't put it down, wanting more and more. It was hot and sexy from the get go. Loved that the two characters had been friends since childhood and never thought of each other as more until their almost kiss in the bakery (introduced in the Hot for You book) many years later. Thank god for that singles retreat.......where it all began. A must read!!! Great job as always Jessie.

This box collection is a great mixture of funny and heartwarming stories! Definitely a purchase worth making. I initially picked up the set because one my favorite authors stories was featured. You may have heard of Erin Nicholas and if you haven’t you need to read her right away! Anyways I knew I wanted to read Erin’s 1st book in her Sapphire Falls series “Getting Out of Hand” , so I bought the whole set. I was rewarded by finding 6 other “new to me” authors and their wonderful stories. ( I had ...more

This was such an awesome set of books. I had read some of the authors before, but some were new to me, and I will be reading more from all of the authors. Each story is a HEA, but getting to those hea's weren't smooth sailing. I give the collection five stars, but only because I can't give them more, they surely deserve more.

Good read

With the exception of two, fairies and spirits, this was actually a really good read. Marquita Valentine didn't disappoint and the others were good too! I would definitely recommend as a nice holiday distraction

I purchased this Christmas box set because I love Violet Duke books. Most of these stories in this set were okay. I like how this box set introduced me to new authors. The authors I'm looking forward to reading more books by are Janelle Denison & Karen Erickson.

I read several of the short stories in here but most of them had their own Goodreadspages so I used them. I am using this one just for Decking Drew since it doesn't have it's own GR page. Very cute story, hope there is another one that will be their happy ever after.

This box set is a fantastic deal! Several authors I haven’t heard from, and a few that I had. So at $.99, I couldn’t beat it! I’ll give you some quick reviews on 4 books! No spoilers….just how I liked the books!

Getting Out of Hand by Erin Nicholas:
Erin Nicholas is my favorite. That’s no secret. I love her and anything she does. However, after falling totally and completely in love with her Bradford/Dixon series….it was hard for me to imagine loving a completely new, unrelated series. BOY WAS I

This is a review for Erin Nicholas's book Getting Out of Hand, part of the wonderful collection of 8 romantic stories. Based on this book alone I'm already thrilled with the purchase!

This first book in the Sapphire Falls series treats us to the story of Mason and Adrianne. Mason grew up in this small town, a boy with such a high IQ that he was always an outcast among his peers. When he left he became a successful scientist and never envisioned himself returning until an alumni event and a

So far I have only read a couple of these stories but here are my reviews on them:

On The Rocks by Sawyer Bennett: Sawyer has done it again. This new beginning to her new series is fantastic. Gabby is a very strong woman who doesn’t take any crap off anyone. Hunter is a wonderful guy who loves his family and would do anything for them. I loved this book & look forward to the next one. I think the Last Call Series will be just as big a hit as the Off Series was.

Twelve Dates of Christmas: The Ballad of Lula Jo by Jessie Evans

I LOVED this book!!

Tallulah Josephine Watson was a spinster at the age of 33 years old. At least, that is what she felt like.

Lula was 22 years old when she fell hard and fast for Carter Bryce, an archaeologist who came to her home town seeking his fortune. Despite a courtship that spanned a few years, Carter left abruptly when faced with Lula's decision to refuse his ring and not leave with him when his job ended.
