Curved Lines: Tattooed Bad Boys and the Curvy Women They Love is an anthology of ten fabulous short stories. Each one has a Hero wearing ink and a curvy beautiful woman that loves him. You will meet a millionaire, a movie star, a tattoo artist, and even a very sexy dragon shifter, and many more. I loved every one of these stories, some more than others. Every single one of these stories is sexy, steamy, swoony and tons of fun. This book was generously provided to me in exchange f

This is a great boxed set but I am focusing this review on Scorched Desire by Lexxie Couper

I absolutely loved this story especially because it had an alpha dragon in it who meant business when the mating heat hit him when he discovered Jilly was his fire mate. Then discovering Sam the druid was interfering really added insult to injury. Poor Jilly didn't understand what was going on, she thought both Sam and Ari were insane. Ari is a dragon shifter out to save his mate and Sam the druid who is s

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this wonderfully delightful anthology. If you like tattooed bad boys then you'll love this collection of stories by various talented authors who know what makes a bad boy bad. I don't know about everyone else but I know I love reading about women who aren't a size two. This is a great collection of hot and steamy stories of bad boys and the curvy women who bring them to their knees.

As with all anthologies you get some good, some bad, and some great stories, this is no different. I felt the bad or poorly written out numbered the good but the ones that were good were great!

This book ranges from seriously kinky to seriously sweet. All stories have sex involved and it is jam packed with material to keep you busy reading for a good while. There are typical romance and paranormal romance stories in here including dragon and werewolf shifters.

I have three authors that I will ad

Kinky Curves – Jodi Redford - Fair warning, Jodi Redford has earned a special spot as my (slightly filthy) soul sister with her dirty talkin' heroes. And heroines, come to think of it. I adore this woman's brain and her naughty characters and all the shenanigans they get into.

This time around, we have Grady and Charlie. The stripper and the phone sex operator. Niiiiiice! Seriously. Those two are kinda dirty/hot together and I loved it. (I also loved Charlie's sister and her hot-mess of a non-rel

Zaftig women and the colorful men that sweep them off their feet. Big girls need love and are sometimes their own worst enemy. This compilation shows us how each of these women came to find hot, sexy love from their very own tattooed hunk.

Food is art and can be a treat for the senses and so is chef August Jaeger. This was a fun story but I felt it was a little rushed.

This is one collection of stories by various authors I looked forward too. It is not often novels come out and say they are curvy etc but women come in all sizes just like men with both all having hearts. The thing is too it is not what is on the outside because that could lie it is what is in the inside that many people hide. I also think tattooed bad boys are a work of art with many being scrumptious gotta eat them up. In this one you get many stories to back it up with many hours of reading p ...more

Anthologies are great to experience new authors, and if you like curvy girls, BB, and tattoos, this collection is for you! Short, not so sweet, sexy bedtime stories you are sure to enjoy. Great job to all the authors.

K(ink)y Curves by: Jodi Redford (Review)

Thundercorns & Unicats 'Oh My!

Such a playful story about two lonely misfits who are anything but!
Grady is one of the Hottest Strippers "Sinners" has ever had. The only problem is that being on stage gives Grady stage fright and panic attacks, not the usual in what you would expect from such a hot looking guy.
Mentally and emotionally scarred by his father, Grady feels worthless as his inner demons work their magic on him. He struggles nightly just to ge

So.... I have mixed feelings on some of the novellas in this set.
Book #1- Dirty Deeds: Rich man, poor woman who is a web-sex performer. Not really my cup of tea and I did not care for the way it abruptly ended.
Book #2-Another Man's Treasure: Absolutely LOVED this one. I love when a book makes me laugh out loud. Poor woman with sh!tty ex-hubs, rich movie star sweeping in to save the day.
Book #3-K(ink)y Curves-What a twist. The stripper is a....MAN. A man with issues.. And he spends his money on a

This is my review for Pretty in Ink only by author Merryn Dexter who contributed her story to this collection.
Garrett Chase has a thing for the curvy sexy Aubrey Jensen for a while now but has never acted on it until tonight. Aubrey Jensen thinks Garrett Chase is hotter then sin but does not think he is interested in her. Now fate has a way of bringing these 2 together that will melt the ice cubes in a glass. But someone wants to come between the pair and he is not playing fair.

I took my time with this collection. The theme here is obvious, but the application is eclectic; there is an interesting variety of stories in here, and anyone interested in plush heroines and edgy heroes will find something to like inside the covers.

Collections are usually a mixed bag, you might get introductions to series, or cliffhangers, or you might get nice standalones that introduce you to new authors and their work without the tease. This is a good one, with little of the extranea, and

Curved Lines brings several authors and their stories of hot men and hot, curvy women. Instead of the stick figures bombshells you normally read about, we get the real women with curves and insecurities and the men that love every inch of them. I loved most of these stories such as the CEO and assistant, dragon shifter and mate, wolf shifter and mate... Etc. they were written well, gave interesting perspectives and relatable with most women's thoughts on wei

I got to read the story "Scorched Desire". A hot romance with a dragon shifter. It might be a short story but the author threw in some twist and turns that were great. I just hope that they right more off of the story. I would love to read more.

I mostly read this while sitting in the hospital with my mom, and it was perfect for that: mostly light, always optimistic, and with a great variety of shorter stories to keep me interested with something new. I won't go into great detail, but I'll give a basic sense of my memory of each of the stories below. (I did find a new author I want to read more of, which is always exciting.)

There are ten hot stories in this collection and I gave a review for each one, First one was Dirty Deeds:
Jeff was a rich guy. Right now he is staying at the beach house as he did something foor his friend and enjoyed it but it wasn’t right. So Jeff had a favorite Cam girl her name was Lily one night he emailed her and asked her how much it would take for her to come to him for a couple days and she replied one million dollars and Jeff said done and the deal was set,

When I had a chance to get my hands on a copy of this collection of delicious stories about women who are appreciated in their curvy form and the men with the beautiful inked bodies who loved them, I couldn't wait to experience these hot stories! Who wouldn't want to get down and dirty with not just one but ten new book boyfriends!

Shelves: contemporary
I really liked 1 of the stories, 5 of them were pretty decent, and 4 were not good. Some of the stories have only a small mention of tattoos.

Dirty Deeds - Allie Cooke Did not like it. No affection among the characters at all. Ended very abruptly and weirdly. Erotica not romance. 1 Star

Another Man’s Treasure – Dee Tenorio - Really liked it. The characters had a spark for each other and they were there for each other. Tonio and Ari have an attraction right from the start and have an easy time talk

A quick overview of each story (I don't give spoilers):

1. Dirty Deeds by Allie Cooke: interracial (BMWW), rich man pays camgirl $1mil to stay at his family's beachfront house with him. Ending left me...ehhh.

2. Another Man's Treasure by Dee Tenorio: OMG, freakin LOVED Ariana & Tonio's story (along with their daughters Celia & Riqa)! Worth buying for this story alone! My favorite story by far!!!

I started this yesterday thinking that I'd read one or two, and then stop and get some things done around the house...and then it was 3 am and I was finishing up. So much for the master plan...

This had 10 stories in it, and some were more appealing to me than others. My favorites were
1. Acquired Taste-Dee Carney
I just kept picturing Gordon Ramsey in my head as Chef August.

2. Scorched Desire-Lexxie Couper
I'm just getting into more paranormal stuff, and dragon shifters? Yes, please! This story
