I received an advance copy of this anthology in exchange for an unbiased review:

Honey Bear by Michelle Bardsley:
Short and "sweet"! Amelia is attacked by gun-toting thugs, and her savior a come in the form of two sexy bear shifters, who love her honey-cinnamon rolls. Will they be able to protect her, and keep her from the crazy monster stalking her? Sexy and action-packed!

The Cull: Alpha Bites by Renee George
A sexy short about a mated pair of wolf shifters that long for the impossible.

5 stars for the collection as a whole. I’m not one to assign 5 stars to short stories, but they were all pretty well written. There is enough background and set up to each story that if you haven’t read the other books in the series ones, you understood what was going on and they added a little something extra. You not only get the hot scenes, but you get to see secrets and insecurities which rounds out each short. These stories definitely will turn you on. The point of the collection seems to b ...more

What a wonderful collection of short stories and novella. Once I started reading stories, I just couldn't stop. Although I couldn't read them all in one sitting, I kept going back to then each time I had five minutes here and there.

This anthology starts with a bang with Honey Bear by Michele Bardsley. I loved the humour and action and all the delicious food references. Another story that stood out for me was Indigo Velvet by Zara Cox. I now want to read the rest of that series. It w

This is a beautifully constructed anthology that allows fans of its various authors to revisit worlds and characters from various series into which these shorts fit. Yet, they are written in such a way as to draw in and keep the attention of people who haven't read any of the books that come before the stories presented here. Plus with its wide range of subject matter, this collection contains something for everyone. ...more

I received a copy of Just Desserts in exchange for an honest review. To be fair to each author, I will review and rate each one individually and then give my final thoughts and a final rating for the entire Anthology as a whole. I will also be adding as a note, whether it can truly be read as a standalone, or if I recommend reading books prior to the short story.

This is a good collection of hot, sexy and erotica short stories from some fabulous authors. This anthology contains a story for everyone who enjoys ménage, paranormal, science fiction and M/M.

Just Desserts is exactly what the title states as I enjoyed that I was given a bit of each story to wet my whistle and let me craving for more. This book kept me reading and I will be looking for more stories for these authors.

I enjoyed reading from the authors I know, like Renea Mason to new authors. Ea

If you love contemporary, or ménage, or even Paranormal, then this collection is right for you! No matter what you like; you'll find it here in this collection of super-hot stories! There's everything from science fiction, to contemporary; first person to third.

Each story had me riveted, even those that I don't normally partake in! For a super long book, I managed to read ALL of it in just a few hours, and it kept me up all night long! And no, I am in no way complaining! I've been looking for a

This book contains sizzling hot short stories that only whet your appetite for more. There were many in this anthology that I absolutely loved, and a couple...not so much. What I loved...the scenarios and the interaction of the main characters. What I didn't like...some use of words that turn me off. I realize that these are erotic stories, but there are just some words I could do without and still enjoy the eroticism. I will be looking for some of these authors so that I can either continue on ...more

What a great group of stories by some amazing authors. I am new to reading some of these authors and was very glad I took the time to read each and every story. Just like with any group of stories I think you will find some are your favorites, but I also got some new favorites after reading these. Some of them I liked so well that I had to find more by that author, either to read more of a series or just the author because I liked the story so well.
I would recommend this book and for 0.99, you

Tasting Paris (The Good Doctor Trilogy) by Renea Mason - The trio strikes again in this hot collection. Dr. Xavier, Marco, and Sabastian show Elaine what Paris is all about in their own special way. You are sure to get hot, sweet, and salty all in one taste of this book. This is just a small taste of what you can get with Renea Mason's books especially with The Good Doctor Trilogy.

More to come...

Hot, hot, HOT! A great anthology for an afternoon quickie. Smoking hot quick reads that will set the mood and give you a few ideas. This is a great way to be introduced to authors you may not have read before. I have to say Bravo to all of the authors who participated. You have put together together one hot read that has my Kindle steaming. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This collection of Bite-sized delights is just that! Even though it's 22 stories of deliciousness, you still can't get enough. Most of these authors are new to me, so getting a taste of their writing was great. Although I enjoyed them all, Common Grounds by SJ Maylee is my favorite!


SJ Maylee's Common Grounds Review

Common Grounds is a short, yet very delicious story about a chance encounter that turns into something spectacular.

Kate's confections pair wonderfull
I wanted this anthology just for Felicity Kates's contribution, Super-Sex Me, which is a companion to her Steam Bunny series. And I was not disappointed! For this story alone the anthology is worth the 5 stars! I was so excited to get more of Astrid after reading Steam Bunny- what a strong, protective, kick-ass friend she is. And Race, definitely needed more of Race! But now I really need more of these two- I cannot wait for their book!!!

These are quick reads and are stand alone stories. It nice to just pick up and read a few if you don't have a lot of time at the moment to read. The stories are steamy and each one unique.

I was fortunate to have been offered the opportunity to read these stories in advance of today's release in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. This does not affect my review.

I love anthologies, for the simple reason you get to read stories by authors you perhaps haven't encountered before. I've discovered more than one author this way.

These stories are wonderfully written, and provide the reader with just a little taste from several genres and sub-genres. I recommend this book for any

There is something for everyone in this book. A great chance to read something by your favourite authors or to try something new. The stories are just the right size to read on the way to work, with a cup of coffee or lounging in the bath. I absolutely loved it and will read it many times.
