Hunks to the Rescue is an opportunity to indulge in multiple short novellas, from a variety of authors, providing quick steamy romance reads. I had the pleasure of reading Unwrapped Treasure, by Jody A. Kessler and Path to Grace, by Wilder Quinn.

Unwrapped Treasure tells the tale of Brody and Treasure as they navigate their way through friendship, working together, and a budding romance. Kessler leaves the reader ready for more of their story but sprinkles enough of them in the novella to warran

Fire And Ice (A Sunnydale Days Novella) by Constance Phillips

After reading a teaser about about all of them they all sounded deliciously enticing. I did read three of them That Unexpected Kiss by Tamara Ferguson, Breaking the Rules by Katie O’Sullivan and Come Hell or High Water by Nancy Segovia.
These novellas were entertaining, well-written and had me rooting for the characters from the beginning. I enjoy a good book with a hot hero and a feisty heroine.

I must say that Breaking the Rules by Katie O’Sullivan was my favorite - Police detective and known ru

Hunks to the rescue gives you an opportunity to read several short stories about awesome alpha males and the woman who tame them.
I read Path to Grace. This is a mafia story about the daughter of the boss and the person sent to keep her safe. When someone puts a hit out on the princess of the mafia - Carina, Matteo is sent to protect her.
After a brief firefight Matteo realizes that the person who wants to harm Carina is internal and he takes her to a place he hopes will keep her safe.

An anthology of novellas, something to pick up and put down when you only have an hour or two to read. As so often happens with a compendium of books, you have different standards of writing as well as different genres. I enjoyed references to other books in the series by Victoria Pinder and Constance Phillips, although Fire and Ice was more believable and had substance. Debbie White's Coaching the Sub touched my heart. I was surprised at Wilder Quinn's Path to Grace as I don't normally enjoy Ma ...more

I voluntarily received an Advanced readers copy of this book. I got sent three of the 15 stories in this box series as I was in arc group 2. I must say I find it a great idea to have a box set with similarily minded authors who still all write very differently. The three stories I got were all quite well written and they were fun to read. Bound by temptation, Unwrapping treasure and Path to Grace. The first story was also the longest story as some were more aligned to novellas rather than a full ...more

Path to Grace-Quinn

Carina is the daughter of a crime boss out on a date with a 'normal' boring man. Matteo is her father's cleaner and her bodyguard for the night. When her date is killed and she targeted he saves her and brings her to his cabin for safety. There they discover their love for each other, stop the killer, break with her family, almost die and leave to start their life together. This is a vividly written wonderful short story that I truly enjoyed and you will too. Highly recommend.

This boxed set has a little something for everyone, at least everyone who loves hot and steamy romances with spunky heroines and hot alpha males. The three stories I read were panty-melting hot! Well-written little novellas, perfect for a quick read when you have a bit of me-time. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

I read an ARC copy of two stories in this book. They were each written by a different author and while they were different in style and flavor, they were each amazing! Jody Kessler's tale about Bodie and Treasure is steamy and hot. The romance of Matteo and Carina is tempestuous and masterfully written by Wilder Quinn. Both stories quickly suck you in and carry you away. I am so excited for this book to come out so that I can read the rest of these romances, and if these two stories are an indic ...more

Hunks to the rescue is a box set of stand-alone novellas. Whether the hunk is a firefighter, FBI Agent, a first responder or even just an everyday guy that sweeps you off your feet after rescuing you from danger than this is the set for you.

Each of these individual novellas take you on various thrilling rides, full of passion, love, action and to top it off are full of sexiness. Each of these books will hook you in some way and captivate you until the very end! I thoroughly enjoyed reading all o

I always find boxed sets a good way out new authors. Hunks to the Rescue has fifteen of the sexy guys and hot gals to sample. None of the authors in this set were familiar to me so it was a surprise each and every story. For example:
Coaching the Sub by Debbie White: 4 stars 5/28
This was not what I expected. The sub was actually a substitute teacher. She and the coach work together to deal with some trouble makers. Looking a little deeper they find there are some underlying reasons for the teen'

Hunks to the Rescue: 18 Hot Contemporary Romance Novellas is an anthology box set of stand-alone, short stories. You have everything from sexy OB/GYN doctor to high school coach, each story is a different. Each novella involves a quick story line with some suspense and action, but at the end, there is always a happy ending. As all the stories were interesting in each of their own way, a few of them stood out to me the most.

The first story within the anthology is Fire and Ice by Constance Phillip

I am really beginning to like reading anthologies. A while ago I thought anthologies were short stories meant to tease but now I know that when I read an anthology, I get a taste of new to me authors. While some stories in any anthology may be short quick stories, some are actually full length novels. A bonus for buying and reading anthologies is that usually the money I spend on the “books” goes to help out a good cause. There are times when the anthology is just for the fun and love of reading ...more

Wow. Each and every story was definitely about hunks and about rescuing of some kind. Truly loved reading all of these. May have to read them again. Wish they had been longer.

This was so sweet and I am always a sucker for a story about a cowboy. There is just almost no way you can mess up a hot cowboy story. This one was about a sexy ranch hand named, Zeke MacAllen, even his name is sexy. He works hard and is not too happy about a movie star coming to town

Hunks to the Rescue was a fun anthology with stories full of alpha males, sassy ladies and pulse pounding adventure. I can honestly say there was something for every reader to like within the selections of this anthology with heroes ranging from members of the military, firemen, doctors, teachers, cowboys, policemen, mafia hitmen, a ghost hunter and more.

While I enjoyed all the stories in this anthology, these were my favorites!

Saving Necessity by, Margo Bond Collins

This is a quirky but swoon worthy Cinderella story in reverse with a Movie Starlet and Cowboy kind of twist.
The tiny town of Necessity is where the movie, “Ten-Gallon Texas" starring Sophie Daniels is being filmed.. Cowboy Zeke MacAllan is there to catch a glimpse of his favorite actress... but it becomes way more than that after he rescues her from a fire on the set.
This is a short but truly enjoyable read.

In Hunks to the Rescue, there's 18 hotties, so pretty much, everyone will want at least one, or if they're like me, all of them. And even though I can NEVER EVER get enough hunks, (and probably never will), the fact is that I haven't read the majority of these authors, so I have a ton of new authors with talented writing styles that I was lucky enough to get the chance to discover, which is even better, if that's possible. Yes, this review sounds like a love letter, but seriously, I read all of ...more

I loved these short stories that all contained hot helpful hunks and the women who fall for them, some hard. Each of these 18 stories was about another couple who went on a quest of self discovery to find themselves and each other. Since they are all novellas you can read a few at a time or one quickly, although you will find it hard to put down after one. Highly recommend this set of short stories if you want some hot hunks and mind blowing sex.

I voluntarily read this advanced readers copy of this book. I just loved it. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. Strong characters and great story lines for all the books. Each one is very unique in its own way. You have fifteen stories about fifteen alpha rescuers. Many different types of alpha men to drool over. You won't be disappointed in venturing in this collection.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book of novellas which lives up to its name of Hunks to the Rescue. The gents in these stories will keep your attention and libido on peak. One of my favorites was Breaking the Rules by Katie O’Sullivan. I liked the writing style. There were interesting turns of phrase that built both the character and the tone of the story. Jake, the hero—an undercover cop—is quite the hunk coupled with a spunky heroine. I found O’Sullivan’s setting in detail in the restaurant trade re ...more
