Find out what happens when you give six authors the SAME blurb and they write their OWN story.

The blurb:

I think this is one of the most interesting and unique premise for a story I've read in a while... Well, stories. Six to be exact. Six stories, with one fun and intriguing blurb, written by six different authors.

One blurb. Six different authors. Six entirely different and unique takes. What does it add up to? A super entertaining read! My review is for:

(1) The Hammersmith & City Line by Kitty French= 4 STARS

and

(2) The Loop by BJ Harvey= 4 STARS

Love in Transit is possibly the most unique idea for a story or should I say stories, I have every come across or had the privilege of reading. What happens when you give six authors the same blurb and they all write their own take on the story? An amazing anthology that just worked, that’s what…

Times Square by Jana Aston

5+++++ Stars


I haven't read any of the author's books and I don't know if the story is safe for me. I just thought if it's not then I'll have my second dnf. But the moment I started it, I was hooked. I can't tell you how much I love the story! It's a story that will stay in my mind for a long time. It's amazing!

The story is about Max and Lauren

She works in marketing and she wants to get a promotion so she doesn't need a distraction. She's renting a one-bedroom apartm

I LOVE this book! What a fun and unique way to not only capture the attention of readers, but to expose new authors to readers too. One blurb, six authors, and six different stories that had me hooked.

These ladies were on point with their tales. Even though the blurb was similar, in no way were the stories. There was a mix of themes ranging from brother's little sister/best friend to second chances, both of which are favorites of mine, and more that attempted to steal my breath away all while pr

4 Stars *Overall*

I absolutely love the concept for this book, all the authors were given the same prompt and where they took the story was all their own. I have to say, the first two were 5 star stories for me, and while they may not have all been 5 Stars, I did enjoy each and every one of them.


~Before release~
Sounds like a cluster of a day, and that was before the wedding dress!!
Love the idea of each author having the same prompt...

Color me interested!!

Times Square by Jana Aston - 4.5 stars 😀

"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale."

I love the humor, wit, sarcasm on this one. I have this silly smile on my face while reading it. The MCs are very likeable and relatable.

And my favorite line "Let's go f*ck this out" was really priceless. 😁

Plus it has a sweeeeet epilogue.

St. George Station by Ainsley Booth - 4 stars

I enjoyed and loved this one as well. A very cute love story with the big brother's best

I'd like to start off by saying that this is a pretty GENIUS idea! It not only provides a challenge for authors, but it gives readers a taste of authors that they might have never heard of before. It's a complete WIN-WIN! Giving six different authors the same blurb and have them run with it, giving us an original novella from each author...it's simply brilliant! Previously, I've only read three of these authors, so in reading LOVE IN TRANSIT, I've discovered three brand new writers to keep an ey ...more

“Six incredible stories from unbelievably talented authors. I’m in book heaven! Love in Transit is my favorite anthology to date. My only complaint…I want more!” ~ Audrey Carlan, #1 NYT Bestselling Author
Becky
I ADORED the first two stories, but it went downhill from there! It was still pretty good though, and I would recommend it. I liked this one a whole lot more than anticipated given my bad luck with anthologies. But this was pretty great and I’d definitely read the first two again! A bunch of really well written, exciting, funny and adorable romantic stories. Definitely great for those short commute reading times or pre-sleep reading.

First of all I need to start by saying what an amazing idea...6 authors same blurb....Each story was fresh, funny and HOT...From a simple smile at Starbucks,Sushi diner with an old friend, mad reality shows that turns on you,old flames coming back to make your head spin, others deciding who to merry at a young age up to being saved by someone you never thought would notice you!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Update 5/29, added review of Jana Aston, BJ Harvey, Kitty French and Raine Miller's stories, 5/30 Liv Morris' added

Now that I've read the book in totality, the idea was amazing and the stories so wonderfully different. I'm left wanting to read more by each author.

--- This review is for Ainsley Booth's story in the volume ---

I was completely engrossed in this book starting with Jana Aston and her wall street hottie and ending with Liv Morris and her sexy, sweet lawyer as well as loving all the stories in between. What a fun idea to take the same story elements but tell 6 completely different stories. I sure hope these ladies do it again because they rocked it! 5 stars x 6!!!

The premise is great. It shows versatility at its best. One blurb, and six authors take on it

I will say all of the books endings felt too abrupt. I understood why, but it jilted my experience.

Jana Aston: 4 stars

A quirky protagonist, humour, and chemistry. The blurb paralleled with the story delivered. It was a little too short as expected, and there wasn't really a problem (thought Brad would be one), but it still ticked all the boxes.

Favourite line:"Let's go fuck this out."

This anthology was such a fun change of pace for me. I normally don't like anthologies but this was such a new concept I couldn't pass it up. I wanted to see how six authors could create 6 completely different stories using the same blurb. Well let me say they did a FANTASTIC job.

Times Square by Jana Aston - 3.5 Stars

This was a short and very easy to read story, and it flowed really well. As with novellas and short stories like this, it did move really fast, but it kind of fit the characters. They were fun and quirky and it was easy to read. The heroine was pretty relatable and the hero was a really sweet guy. I haven't read many books by Jana Aston, but this was written in the quirk and easy going nature I have come to expect from her.

You know those people that have a house full of motivational slogans? Embrace Every Moment, stamped on their coffee mugs. Always Kiss Me Goodnight painted above their perfectly made beds.

I’m not one of those people.

This morning I overslept, then slipped on a stray sock and banged my toe into the nightstand. The elevator in my building broke and I had to run down six flights of stairs. And then my local coffee shop was closed.

I liked the premise of this book, but after reading four stories with the same set up I wasn't inclined to read the last two. Here's my take on the four that I read -

Times Square by Jana Aston - Great characters with endearing, funny situations. This was my favorite couple in the anthology, very entertaining. 4+ Stars

St. George Station by Ainsley Booth - Sweet story featuring a friends to lovers plot and a MOC twist. I love this trope and overall the story was well written. I've never read a

The concept of this anthology had me intrigued right from the start. It also doesn't hurt that I am an absolute fan of every author that has contributed to these amazing stories.
My favourite book was Wall Street Station by Liv Morris. Seraphina (Sera) is born into a world of wealth and has led a sheltered life. Seth is a business associate of Sera's father and has in instant connection to her.
Three years later, Sera's world has dramatically changed. Seth knows he should stay away, but finds that

This review is for Wall Street Station by Liv Morris, more to come

Seth is an attorney for the rich and Sera is the 18 year old virgin daughter of one of his clients. Wall Street Station takes us through the "riches to rags" journey of young Sera when something happens to her families wealth. without spoilers I will say Seth is one of the sweetest H's I have ever read but without the bad boy persona I have come to love in romance novels, he is still an amazing character. I adored Seth! Sera will

What a great idea, and I loved how different each story was, one of my first thoughts was that I hope there weren't any duplicated story lines, and NOPE! they all did a fantastic job, you can read them all after each other as a giant book, and get something very different with each one, or you can read one story when you have a couple hours to fill. This would make it last longer!

Wow loved this set. What a great way to meet new authors. Loved all the different stories. They were all very intense in there own way. The couples all had an amazing connection. They all had there own twists to figure out. Could not wait to read the next story. Finished this in about a day.

I very much wanted to read this book, basically because my favorite author, Raine Miller is a contributing author. The authors were given a subject and a few details and were asked to write a novella. Began reading this book by starting with Capital South by Raine Miller. Without a doubt, Ms. Miller can write a story based on anything and it will turn out to be a fantastic story. We were treated to another one of her amazing men and a heroine everyone can love. The other authors, Jana Aston, Ain ...more

This an amazing anthology. Each author was given a set of criteria to include in the story. How they crafted their stories was up to them. Each author did a stellar job of making each story unique and enjoyable.

Full of hot sexy times and sweet HEA! Absolutely loved this!!

I was excited about this collection because I wanted to read more of Jana Aston. And the great thing about a collection is that I find some new authors to investigate. I am particularly curious to read longer works by Ainsley Booth, Kitty French and Raine Miller.

What an awesome concept! 6 authors took one blurb (that there is a woman riding the subway in a wedding dress) & wrote what their idea of the story is. Each story is about 80 to 100 pages each (novellas).

All 6 books are so completely different, yet wonderful! Although these books work perfectly great read alone, the books compliment and work amazingly well together (believe me, you're gonna start searching for that wedding dress!).

The thing that I loved the most about this anthology is that eac

I was very intrigued by this idea of one blurb and six stories I think it's a fantastic idea. I was very impressed at how different all these stories are and how the authors managed to come up with such unique circumstances for a person to wear a wedding dress on a train. I've reviewed and rated each story below. My bookshelves don't apply to all of them.
