Summer Love

4.08  ·  Rating details ·  59 ratings  ·  10 reviews
Sun-soaked beaches, glittering blue pool surfaces and oceans painted by an orange-hued sunset have one thing in common: they’re the perfect background for falling in love. Who hasn’t felt that first wave of butterflies rise deep in their belly while pool side? Or that first quickening of the pulse when lounging on a lush patch of grass during a music festival? Summer is th ...more

Although I received a free copy for an honest review, I would gladly have paid for this one. Here's why.

There are a good number of stories, 14 to be exact. Some of my favourite authors are included like Cheyenne Blue, Lucy Felthouse and, of course, Harper Bliss. Erzabet Bishop is also in the mix and, between her and Harper, they both surprised me with the kind of story I really didn't expect to get from them. Both different, both good.

There are several authors whose work I have not had the pleas

Another Great from LadyLit
There are few things I love more than a hot anthology put together by LadyLit's own Harper Bliss. This one is extra special as this time her co-editor is her wife Caroline Manchoulas. Summer Love is an spicy anthology of fourteen amazing authors. All of the stories involve women getting away from their real lives for awhile during the summer. Not only are these stories sexy many of them include a chance at love and new beginnings.

1. We start out with Cheyenne Blue's St
3.5-4 stars

As with most anthologies, these stories were hit and miss for me. Thankfully more were hit, than miss. I found one story truly odd, and a couple were told in present tense, a style of narration I struggle with at the best of times.

No stranger to Tamsin Flowers and A.L. Brooks I very much enjoyed their contributions. Mistress was another fun instalment and of course, Harper Bliss didn't disappoint.

Copy kindly provided by in exchange for an honest review.

This was overall a pretty good anthology. As always, some stories were better than others, and one story I flat out hated (it wasn't bad, and was actually very well done, it was also very much not for me). I almost couldn't believe Harper Bliss contributed a story with no sex at all, but she did and it was great. It's an interesting mix and it's available through Kindle Unlimited, which is great given the price. ...more

Summer Love is a bit of a misnomer - it would better be titled Summer Sex although those familiar with Harper Bliss' work would have no surprises at that comment!

Having said that, for the more romantics at heart, there are some nice tales of love thrown in among the pwoar scenes and overall, as the title of the anthology suggests, this would be the perfect book to read on a summer day at the beach (I can equally vouch for the under a blankie, in front of the heater in the middle of winter combo

Not for me

I usually like short stories -- the ability to paint a scene in a few words, to not build up too much, to give just enough character description. But this anthology just didn't work for me. I'm not sure if it is the romance aspect -- the usually ridiculously short timelines are even more compressed in most of these stories, or if the stories themselves were not that interesting. There were a few that I enjoyed -- Harper bliss's own was well written, though I don't like it when ostensib

I love the majority of the stories. There are couple that I couldn’t get into. Most of them I didn’t want to end. Enjoyable read.

Very nice stories

I enjoyed the stories some more than others but was a bit disappointed when I looked for some of the writers and didn't find them on Amazon.
And of course it's needless to say that Harper Bliss nailed it with her story. LOVE Her!!!!
