Really cute, sweet stories about loveable characters, each with a unique set of baggage.

Knit Tight: 3 stars
Couple finds together while both are working through some family issues and learn that relying on others is not a weakness.

Wrapped Together: 5 stars
My favorite story in the collection! Long-time frenemies finally give in to the attraction they've been fighting for years. They were such an adorable bickering couple. Added bonus: one of them is a

Since these are 3 seperate stories I’ll review them seperately.

Knit Tight: 3 stars

I liked quite a few things, a Turkish character, the knitting theme. Annabeth Albert is also quite good at writing characters with specific tastes in bed, meaning they don’t like everything, which makes them more real. The epilogue was sweet.

I however did not like Ev’s prejeduices about bisexuals. But there was the fact that I think the author brought up these prejudices for that very reason, cause there are so m

Ich mag den Schreibstil und die Charaktere, aber eigentlich ist mir in jede GEschichte "zu viel" verpackt das zwar wichtig ist, das aber einfach untergeht ... bisschen schade, aber trotzdem eine Leseempfehlung.

I reviewed the books in this set as they were released. Below are my reviews for each of them.

**Knit Tight**
5 stars
This book stirred up my emotions and just about broke my heart in places. That’s about the highest praise that I can give a book. I know not everyone likes an emotional read but they are my favorite kind of story.

Knit Tight is told in first person POV by Brady. Brady is a barista who works hard and is trying to keep his family together. When his mother and step-father were killed in

Knit Tight 5 stars
This fourth book in the Portland Heat series is fantastic! It is full of real emotion and struggle, but joy, kindness and mostly love. Brady has so much on his plate, too much to carry on his own. Evren impresses me with is caring. He effortlessly gives. He has a hard time accepting Brady's support. He too is overwhelmed with too much to deal with while caring for his ailing aunt. I like watching Ev go from being so closed off to embracing a family. The ending is divine.

Heartwarming, emotional stories of acceptance

Three different stories revolving around various forms of acceptance of other people, their worries, their struggles and their needs. All with a common theme of how finding the person who loves and accepts you for who you are and what you need leads to your HEA.

Books 1 and 2 inspire some strong emotions, something I find Albert is quite good at. Be prepared for that “nearly in tears sore throat” or outright tears. Book three didn’t impact me quite tha

Trīs storiji. Puslīdz normāls bija #2.
#1 - kinky adītājs ar stulbu loģiku. Vienīgā daļa, kas te bija emocionāla, bija par tanti, kurai vēzis. Bet Ev...just ughhh... #gavinlogic. Adīšanas blogeris. Labi, ka baristu nesēja ar adītām šallēm pie gultas :D.
#2 bija xmasīgi un tas pāris man kaut cik patika :) They were hot.
un #3... Neiedziļinoties. Just not for me.

All good stories here, but my favorite is Wrapped Together. Hollis and Sawyer, once they finally give in to their years-long attraction, are perfect together. There is just something romantic about unrequited love getting it's chance. Plus, they're a little bit spicy in the bedroom.

I just loved this book 📖 - just about everything she’s written. Very interesting story line and characters. Loved the happy ending. I did get a little sappy, when they both thought 💭 it wasn’t going to work. Kendall and Todd were made for each other 👥🥰

Cute stories

Each of the three stories were very, very cute. Low angst and all the happy sighs. A steal at $.99 for three books!
