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.

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 apartmen

I saw this cover and was intrigued as I am a lover of Wedding stories...I read the Concept/Blurb and that really piqued my interest. Throw in some of my favorite authors and Click... I had the book and dove in.

This Love in Transit Anthology by Jana Aston, Ainsley Booth, Kitty French, BJ Harvey, Raine Miller and Liv Morris

Love in Transit is brilliant! 6 authors and 1 blurb results in 6 distinct novellas that are all sweet, sexy, and incredibly entertaining.

Times Square (Jana Aston) – Jana Aston has cornered the market on sexy romance with witty dialogue. Time Square is laugh out loud funny and scorching hot. A perfect hero and sexually adventurous heroine equal PERFECTION! Another winner from one of my favorite authors.
St. George Station (Ainsley Booth) – This is a super cute novella. I love the tropes.

Funny, light, sweet, sexy, safe.
Amazing MCs. Hilarious strong heroine.
Hot sexy sweet hero.
No drama. I loved how the author solved the conflict.
Insta great! 😍

I don't like big brother's BFF trope much, but this story was cute.
Why did her nana wanted her married?.. 🤔
I wish to read more of them as a couple. The story was a long foreplay, marriage + sex, no epilogue.
Nevertheless cute.
And she wasn't a virgin and he wasn't a manwhore! 😊 Yeah!

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

"It’s a Good Day for a Hot Mess."

From the moment I clapped eyes on the concept for this clever anthology I was hooked. One blurb, with six talented authors lends to one very entertaining time spent with this book. Simply put, I was sold.

What did I love?
I loved the idea that I would be grabbing an insight into how each author would create their own spin on a blurb that was already making me sit up and take notice. I love originality in my romance reading and this anthology certainly provides j

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.

Six authors, one blurb, all in one fantastic anthology. It's a pretty awesome idea and perfectly executed!

I have never been a super fan of anthologies, because the stories don't usually mesh well. However, these stories flowed so well together and create an awesome reading experience. I absolutely recommend picking this one up. Perfectly, sweet and steamy!

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!!

Great idea! One blurb, 6 authors/6 novellas.
I read St George Station first. I'd read "Personal Delivery" just before and GS is the follow up novella with a different couple. Toby and Cara in this one.
I was just planning on reading one or 2 of these stories. I ended up reading all of them.
I loved how different each author takes the blurb & makes it her own.
I think that my favorite is Times Square (Jana Aston). Great banter.
Each of these authors is very good at their story telling.

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

From the minute I saw the concept of this book I was so curious about it and I thought what an interesting idea to do this. My favorite author, Raine Miller, has a story in here that is phenomenal. Her fans will adore it especially because there are hidden Easter eggs that only we will recognize if we have read her earlier books. It is important to go spoiler free so that everything is based just on the premise of the blurb. I loved Reese and Gray in Capitol South and I would be very happy if th ...more

First, the idea of this book is brilliant. Had I not already been big fans of five of the six participating authors, I would have been sold with just the concept.

As an anthology, it’s really a five star read. Not only did I devour this in one sitting, I also discovered a new to me author (Liv Morris). Rarely do I finish an entire anthology, I think like most, I buy it for the author I love – read them – and then promise to one day return to finish the rest.... which I never do.

So, the idea is

Excited for the Jana Aston one- and to discovering new author in this unique plot.

"Love in Transit" is the anthology with 6 authors. A clumsy lady in a wedding dress on a subway gives blurb to different stories.

Times Square by Jana Aston: The author for whom I picked up this series! Story of Max and Lauren, who meet at a coffee shop, fall in lust at a book reading, make love in an apartment and fall in love with mild angst.
Average love story and chemistry with sweet ending

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

Fun, fresh, and totally unique, Love in Transit is the perfect summer read!

Each story is decidedly different, each author taking her own spin on the blurb provided. Unlike most anthologies, you don't feel a shock when moving from one to the next and I loved the feeling of continuity in this project.

Believe it or not, I hadn't read some of the authors included. This was a great way to meet new writers and get a feel for their style. (I may or may not have went on a one-click binge once I finishe

Times Square by Jana Aston

I am a huge fan of Jana's ability to write romance that's funny but still meaningful. This story was just perfect. It had everything I want in a rom com - witty dialogue, funny but strong lead female (Lauren), believable sexual chemistry, hot but slightly quirky male lead (Max) and a HEA.

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."
