16 stories all connected by one MMA/Charity event in Vegas on New Year's Eve.

A nice array of stories. Some better than others...

ROCKIN' THE SUITE - Rhonda James

Review for FORBIDDEN by KL Kreig

Reckless desire.
Scorching need.
Unmistakable love.
They all crash into me at once like the leading edge of a storm, weakening me everywhere.


Dear KL. Kreig,

I hate you. You are the worst tease in the history of teases and I can't even with you right now. If I knew where you lived, I'd drive down there right now and sit over your shoulder as you type the rest of this story and glare at you. Menacingly. SO MENACINGLY. *waves threatening fist*

This book earned 5 stars based on entertainment and my level of enjoyment. If I wasn't already a fan of anthologies before, this one would make me into one. There wasn't a story I didn't like, there were quite a few that I loved, and I'm such a sucker because I've now added so many books from these authors to my never-ending TBR, it's not even funny.

What I really loved about this anthology was how each novella tied together. They each centered around the same even. It's new year's eve at the MGM

ROCKIN' THE SUITE - Rhonda James
Who doesn't love an inked rock star who knows how to rock his wife's sexual world? Sebastian is so damn sexy! Not fussed on his woman, though. I can't stand chicks who are all like, "do you know who we are?" to get their own way and expect special treatment just because of it. 3.5 stars.

3 INCOMPLETE STARS.

Well, I can't say I hated this book of short stories, but it was really too short to be comprehensive to me.

I felt literally placed into the middle of one situation after another and give no information and excepted to care what happened to these characters.

NEW FLASH, I personally need a little more than that.

The Alphas & Fairytales anthology took stories from 16 authors that all are part of the events of the same evening, from all points of view. But all stories that are either brand new endeavors from authors or new stories from their existing characters. Now some of these stories were fantastic and some were just okay. I’m going to focus on those that I enjoyed most – but this is a book with sales that go do a great cause, so I recommend buying it just for the donation.

A collection of stories tied together by the same MMA event taking place on New Years in Vegas. Proceeds to benefit VETSports

16 stories featuring Alpha males and all the love, lust, anger, and redemption you can handle in one book. It is longer in length and I found the stories didn't tie together as well as I had hoped. Some were better than others, but as a whole it's a fun anthology.

Oh my Lord, heat for days! Be prepared when you begin this book that it is hot, steamy, and utterly sexy. Each and every single story sizzles.

I love an anthology. I get to met new authors, to sample their writing styles, and to escape into a book. What could be better? With this anthology, nothing! Each story contains that dominate alpha male that I love, absolutely love, and boy, do these men know what they are doing in the bedroom, elevator, closet

Let me say I love Anthologies because you get to read some of your favorite authors and you get introduced to new ones, that being said here we go! All of these stories take place in Vegas, where a charity fight and dinner for VetSports happening. Each story is a short glimpse into a couples life.

I love anthologies. I love box sets. Not only are they amazing deals price wise, they are also a great way to meet new authors and get reacquainted with authors we are seasoned with.

This is for Close Encounters only be Alison Bliss. If this story is as hot as all the others in this anthology, I can not wait for it to land on my Kindle! Brick and Addy are exes of 2 weeks due to a misunderstanding...that is all cleared up after bumping into each other at a charity function. This is a fast, sexy read that I seriously hope Alison continues in a future book! Loved it!

I had the amazing opportunity to read Close Encounters by Alison bliss. This features Brick and Addison. After a devastating break up Addison wants to move on with her life. Brick is determined to have Addison back in his life after she breaks it off suddenly.
This story is short but doesn't leave out the steam. I love Alison Bliss and I love her books.

This review is only for CLOSE ENCOUNTERS

This book was a quick and fun read. I enjoyed the push/pull between Addy and Brick. These two crazy kids were engaged till recently when a couple of misunderstandings broke them up. At a fundraiser they meet again and spark fly. It is very apparent that they both love each other immensely but both seem to suffer from pride and anger.

Brick is not a man to be pushed aside, he is an alpha in the truest sense and that comes across in this story. I really like

This review is for KL Kreig's contribution to the antology- "Forbidden"

Holy moly KL Kreig, that was one hot story. To know that this is a preview of the characters that she will feature in her upcoming duet release was almost like icing on the cake. An intro to characters that I'm already dying to know- and to support an honorable charity like VetSports- hell yes!

The book is ridiculously sexy. Like you lose everything that's happening around you in real life and become immersed in the sinful sed

I love this book. It is a wonderful collection of stories with one of them being Freeing His Dark Edges by Kane Caldwell. My favorite of all in the book. It a continuation of Chase & Naomi's story and is right up to par with Kane's writing. Not only do you get 16 great stories but the proceeds from the sale benefiting VETSports. A great cause that helps our Vets. This isn't just a book it's a good one and helps benefit so many. I highly recommend it.

This review is for Tempted times three by MNEVER. This author sure packs a wallop in this short tale. I hope we hear more from Jenn,Chase and Shane. That ending was a doozy. I can't wait for that couple to get their own book. Steam factor 10.

*Review only for Forbidden by KL Kreig*

Freaking hell, woman. That was hot! Forbidden is a fiery little nugget of sexiness that will get your blood running. I didn't need another reason to be excited for Kreig's upcoming duet, but I sure as heck got one. After this tempting tidbit, I'm chomping at the bit for Lost in Between.

Close Encounters by Alison Bliss is an awesome read. She made identifying with the characters and the story easy. You really connect with Addy and Brick, feeling the high emotions and tension depicted throughout the story. I would love to see a novel featuring them, to continue there story.

Alphas & Fairytales: A New Year's Eve Anthology is one of the best Anthologies i have read in a while. I really don't have a favorite short story in this book. All the authors are amazing. Some are new to me and some i have read everything by them.
I love anthologies that revolve around one event and one time of the year. This one just so happens to revolves around one of my greatest sports MMA and an organization that helps so many. Along with revolving around New Year's Eve.

I read this novella in the Alphas & Fairytales: A New Year's Eve Anthology.

LVPD Detective Ian Rusk's wife walked out on him six days earlier on Christmas Day. He hasn't heard from her since. On the job, something it always seems he is, he's working the big fight at the MGM when he spots his wife on the arm of an NFL linebacker. When he confronts her, will he learn that he's been replaced for a higher end model or will he realize what's truly at stake? I love a second chance story, a

Both my husband and I come from families with veterans, so we like to do what we can so when I spotted a new anthology for VETSports, I was all over that. Not only is this a great organization, the lineup of authors for this anthology was amazing—some of them I’ve heard of, some of them I know and others were knew to me. I appreciated that even if the novella was part of a series, it could be read as a standalone. I wasn’t left standing in the dark. I’m only going to review a few of the stories. ...more

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, Alison Bliss

I'm a big fan of Alison Bliss and even bough this is very short it was a really enjoyable story.

Miscommunication at its best, Addy jumps to conclusions and makes a very big change in her life. Two weeks later she has to face up to that decision and face the consequences.

Brick is a man on a mission and won't stop until he's got his answers from Addy.

It's well written, packed full and got the perfect HEA. I like strong alpha men and Brick certainly seems to be that.
