I am usually not an anthology person, but three big things drew me to this particular anthology. #1- 4 of the 6 authors I’ve read and enjoyed and the other 2 I’ve heard great things about. #2- as a nurse, I am a sucker for medical type romances. #3- all proceeds go to charity, including Pancreatic Cancer Action Network which is close to my heart. So even though they aren’t my thing, it was a no brainer I would read this book. And I’m so glad I did. I really enjoyed all these stori

Kindle: Hey, want to read Closet Confessions? It's just a novella. The rest of the stories are MF. Proceeds benefit charity.

J: Kindle....really? you even have to ask?

What better way to get people to try MM then to sneak it in an MF anthology???

And this was the perfect read for those MM newbies.

And an added bonus: This isn't a teaser. There is no cliffhanger. We're not left hanging for the rest of the story. Nope!

There's nothing more annoying than that!

I bought this pretty much just for the Kindle Alexander story since it's been way too long since she's had a new book out. I can only re-read Texas Pride so many times before I need something new dammit! Anyway...this little short story was enough to get me by until her next full-length book comes out. It was a sweet little story about a couple who's going through some growing pains, learning how to be together out from under the Don't Ask Don't Tell restrictions of the military.

And so cool that there is an M/M story tucked in there by one of my favorite authors!
If you haven't read any M/M yet - Kindle Alexander is a great author with beautiful (and HOT) love stories !

Night Shift: Dirty Things Happen in the Dark is an Anthology of 6 new, short stories. Novellas! HOT novellas.

The definition of a novella is simple- A short novel or long short story.

My definition of a novella- An awesome story crunched for time, just giving you what you really want. Getting right down to the nitty gritty without all the page fillers of a regular sized novel!
They’re quickies!

To be honest, I purchased this Anthology for 2 reasons. The first and foremos

Off Duty by Sawyer Bennett

I loved this second chance romance novella. Sawyer does a great job drawing the reader into Tim and Holly's world. This is a couple I could have spent a bit more time with.

At a young age they can see love without seeing color. The coupl proves that love is colorblind.

Despite all the heartache from their youth, they grew up still pining for each other. You can feel their sparks fly even after all their years apart.

Anyone who knows me at all knows how much I love anthologies. So, when I found out about this particular collaboration, there was no way I wasn't going to be a part of it. Kindle Alexander, Toni Aleo, Sawyer Bennett, Brenda Rothert(Goodreads Author), Chelle Bliss (Goodreads Author), and Eden Butler (Goodreads Author) are all authors I love. I mean out of the six I belong on half of their street teams. That is how much I adore these women.

This is a fantastic group of novellas by some of the best authors out there today.

All take place in a place where anything can happen and generally does...New Orleans! Plus, all of the stories are connected in some way to a hospital. These books also deal with real issues and one of the major things I took from this anthology is #LoveIsLove. It doesn't matter your race, your gender, your socioeconomic status or anything else, you're going to love who you love and everyone should be allowed to do

New Orleans. Dirty Deeds. Hot Nights. <<-- Argh, could there BE a better combination? Nope, I don't think so! These stories all take place in and around Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans, tethered by the late nights, hospital setting, and the wicked acts the staff get up to one hot summer....

The anthology kicks off with Off Duty by Sawyer Bennett. It was the story I was most anticipating, and it didn't disappoint. HOT. That's the first word that comes to mind when I think of Sawyer Bennett's

Fabulous group of novellas all in support of a great cause! I went into this anthology most excited about Sawyer Bennett's Off Duty but ended up reading all 6 stories and falling in love with a few new authors too!

After being separated as young adults due to bigoted beliefs, Tim and Holly come face to face again in a New Orleans emergency room. The sparks are still there and these two characters waste no time in making up for all the years apart. Tim’s sexy and commanding approach in the bedroom will have you blushing!

**Fans herself**... it is hot in here?

If it isn't it will be by the time you finish reading Night Shift.

6 amazing authors have given us 6 steamy short stories, and all for 3 fantastic charities.

As I was reading I was thinking to myself "man, I needed to get sick while I was in New Orleans a couple of months ago, this medical centre is a hotbed of hotties"

I hope it's only fair because I only read "CLOSET CONFESSION" from Kindle Alexander, and not interested in other stories.
Closet Confession is quite good for a novella. Looking forward to read Secret, that could be interesting.

Since I only read M/M I purchased this mainly to support the cause and for Kindle Alexander's Closet Confession. What a great short read, she has become the master of WTH? And of course she delivers once again. Justin and Dr Baby were perfect. Can't wait to read more about Mr. Wilder in 'Secret'. ...more

Even better than that is that all proceeds raised from the sale of this anthology will be donated to the Keith Milano Memorial Fund,, and the Nashville Predators Foundation.

He’s ready to get back to his family and fellow teammates on the Nashville Assassins and get back onto the ice.

Most of this stories I loved. I say most because I don't like cliffhangers. I won't say the stories were bad because of it. Only one I wanted to skip and others I read like I'm dying of thirst. LOL

The book that I loved the most was Brenda Rothert's Healing Touch. It was sweet and hot. Just the type of stories I like to read. So, good job.

Night Shift is a combination of novellas by select Authors. All the stories take place or have something to do with the Tulane Medical Center in The Big Easy. I found all six of the novellas to be well written, hot, sexy and filled with good drama. We get to meet a variety of characters all dealing with some sort of baggage, that is holding them back from finding that one who completes them. Each novella is a fairly quick read, but left me wanting more, more, more.

I was provided with a Review Copy/ARC for review.

I was impressed with this collection of novellas! I don't generally enjoy a novella as much as a full-length novel, but these were pretty good.

There was a nice variety of authors with their own different writing styles and that was interesting. As a whole, these were very written.

Although all the different stories were based around the hospital to a point, they aren't connected to one another.
