What a great collection of stories to be read, even better since I got the privilege to read them for Valentines weekend. Lyssa Layne was a new author for me but she is now on my author stalk....er I mean author to watch list. This collection has something for everyone. It was very heart warming and a really enjoyable escape. I am so glad that she was introduced to me. ON a side note I went through a personal situation a few months ago and this author personally contacted me to make sure that I ...more

Andy Garrity - Love is a Fire & Burst Into Flame

Andy has experienced more heartache in the last few years than any man should. Yet, his daughter-in-laws believe that maybe it's time for him to move on so he is no longer alone after the death of his wife Lisa, three years ago.

This book is an amazing look at the guilt of moving alone and knowing that it is ok to move on and no longer feel lonely. The book brings up such sad memories from past books, yet it is an amazing book on love and the abilit

This is a Valentine’s Collection of 5 short stories, of which Lyssa Layne gives the reader a prequel of future book goodness to come. Each story has characters from her previous books, but you can jump on the “Lyssa Bandwagon” without having read about them in previous books. These stories are short, but high impact and you’d swear they were full length novels! I don’t know how she accomplished that illusion, but that she did. These stories will have you craving for more, and this is why reading ...more

This is a collection of 5 very sweet shorter stories and they are all very well written and really good. At first I thought that I would dislike the fact that it is not a book but 5 stories but I was wrong. They are really good when it comes to what they are about and how they are written. When I started reading I thought I would read one of the stories and then go to bed and it ended up with me finishing all five stories in one go.

If you are like me, and havent heared about Lyssa Layne before,

Catch My Heart
Lyssa Layne

Lyssa Layne's collection of short stories, Catch My Heart, brings us the continuation of a few of her popular novels, all set around Valentine's Day. This is like a dream for most readers - what happened after the happily ever after? Did it stay true to the promise? Did it become a happily just now? Or did the romance fizzle out after some time?

Romance, remember, isn't just filled with lust and hot romps in bed (or other places). After the heat, reality sets in and the h

I was excited when Lyssa released a collection of Valentine's stories that included many of my favorite characters. It allowed me to get a tease of what might come with the characters in the future while it made me want to read even more!

Andy Garrity is back on the dating scene after losing his wife a few years prior. Will he have success and find a love like he lost?

James Paul & Brianna are a made-for each other couple. They seem to have it all but all changes in a split second, a way they were

I love Lisa's writing and she does not disappoint when it comes to this Valentine's collection.

Every one of these stories transport us not only to the lives of these characters but to the possibilities that come with a second chance at love, to losing the one you love, the insecurities that some go through at the thought of being a parent for the first time, the fear that the past will come back to hunt you and it'll repeat itself.

Lisa is an incredibly talented storyteller and I find that her

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

A nice collection of Valentine romance stories. Some stories made me chuckle and some made me cry but they all touched my heart in one way or another. The only reason I did not give this book a five star rating is I found some stories dragged a little bit. Other than that I really enjoyed the stories overall. I am a sucker for a good romance and that is what you will get with these stories.

Ummmm, yeah so I don't know how to put into words how amazing this collection of short stories was.
It was so great to revisit the characters from Lyssa's previous works and see where they are now.
I do highly recommend to have tissues on hand as a few of them are tear jerker's and one may rip your heart it and stomp on it but it's done it a beautiful way, if that makes sense. Lyssa is my tear jerker queen and I cannot wait for more from Lyssa

This was a good book of short stories. I enjoyed that not all were lovey dovey that you would think would come out of a Valentine's themed book. The author wrote a variety if different type short stories that were all an enjoyable read with a tissue or two, what did I just read here, and I need more please!
