When Jason Somers inherited the family butcher shop, he had no idea he was taking the helm of a sinking ship. With the help of his younger brother Jaxson, a plan emerged to save The Meat Market.

What better way to earn some extra cash than to target one of their biggest customer group’s most basic needs. All they needed were some willing men and some clever marketing.

I always try to support anthologies! This one was a little different than my normal reads since it centers around escorts- I will review the ones that I dig into!

Prime Rib by Winter Travers
I liked that we didn't have to hear about Dylan's past conquests. He was instantly attracted to Ginger.
-no ow/om drama
-no pushing away
-safe - no separation and no others after meeting

Tenderloin by Mary B Moore

I really enjoyed Damian and Tabitha's story. Tabitha i

Not rating this since I didn't finish all the stories

Soo.... This one is on me because I didn't read the blurb before starting it and It seems I am dumb because I didn't know that the title of this book had a double meaning. I actually thought the heroes sold meat? See I'm dumb. Lmao!!! *facepalm*

I only read one story and honestly I have no desire to read the rest after reading this one. I might wrong with the rest of the stories and I could be wrong about the rest of the heroes too. *shrugs*

This Book was damn Amazing. I found new Amazing Authors and as each story Finished I couldn't wait to see who was next and what the story was based on.
Let me tell you that not one of these Stories disappointed me.
Hot and Sensual. Grab it the minute it's live. It's for an excellent Charity and we'll worth it I promise.

Authors with a cause are always the best!

With the exception of a few, I did read most of the stories in this anthology.

From the old school true love that we all ache to have to characters you identify with I enjoyed Chorizo very much. ML gives you heartfelt love with a side of funny and adorable you can't help but love.

I thoroughly enjoyed Riann C. Millers spare rib. Evan and Nora were simply adorable. Every person can identify with Nora as she gets nervous and goes and on. I absolutely loved

Holy hell was this a hot and steamy book! The stories were absolutely amazing. My favorites have to be KC Strip, Spare Rib, Filet Mignon, and Butcher. Hot book, Hot guys and a book that everyone needs to read now!

I only read one of the stories, but I freaking loved it. I still think about it from time to time since I was allowed to read it a month ago. Bahaha! Mary B. Moore's story is something different than my usual tastes and I devoured the tenderloin like a greedy, dirty girl.
It was entertaining and I couldn't put it down.

So, overall - Freaking awesome read! I've broken it down into the stories in the anthology. I figured that would be the best way to do it so here goes!

KC Strip- S Van Horne
Lilly met Jax through the Meat Market - and he was her first. Two years later he's been her only. Lilly and Kacey and Jax- could there be a more fantastic family?

Spare Ribs - Rianne Miller
Nora runs from her home in NY to Chicago in order to escape her ex. Ryan lost his wife due to a traffic accident and he raised his son on hi

The authors in this anthology were all new to me. Meat Market was a good read. You really need to read to see how each guy in the book found his love. Meat Market book is using the profits for a good cause prostate cancer.

I thoroughly enjoyed each and every story in this Anthology... It was exciting and interesting. Each story so different but each one just as Beautiful as the previous one.

Loved them all and so glad I got to meet many new Author's that I never knew about.
Grab it for the good Course but I promise it's so so worth it.

I loved it!! Every single story is fantastic. It's funny, sexy, emotional, and so well written. A really great anthology.

Ten authors have come together to create THE MEAT MARKET ANTHOLOGY. It's a romantic comedy, approximately 150k words.

Yes, it's a lot of reading, but SO MUCH FUN!

And trust me, it's great. I'm not saying that because I am one of those authors, but because I have had the pleasure of reading each story, and OH, MY GOODNESS . . .

Each story is beautifully crafted and unique, showcasing each writer's style without interrupting the flow of the anthology. It's sweet, sexy, funny, loving, and has ALL TH

The Meat Market is a delectable smorgasbord and I devoured every on the menu.  These men are paid to wine, dine, and romance; anything their date desires. They are so good at their trade, it is hard to tell when the facade turns real.

This anghology has an awesome author lineup and is raising funds for a great cause. I enjoyed reading about each man, their reason for joining The Meat Market and the women that get them taking their cut of meat off the market.

Most of these authors were new to me

I read and loved all of these stories, each being just different enough and some with connections to other stories and all leaving me hanging with the "for now".

In our first story, KC Strip we get a second chance with a little extra something. "Life is hardly ever easy, brother. Sometimes, you just have to keep moving forward. Keep going, hold onto your something good with both hands, no matter what"

The next story is Spare Ribs. This story is about finding and learning to love again. It has a s

Kc strip ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is the first story I ever read by this author and I loved it. I really enjoyed this and I hope it becomes a full novel.

Spare ribs ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Enjoyed this story. Loved the characters. Loved when Nora was at Evans parents house! Hope this gets a full novel.

This was a shorter story. It was ok. Not a whole lot of background to this one.

The Meat Market Anthology is a series of stories about the men who work for Jason and his Meat Market. Jason's idea to keep his family butcher shop open was to gather his hot friends and hire them out to the women of Chicago. Spoiler Alert! The butcher shop was saved!

This book is a lot of fun to read. Each story follows a different guy and the lady who takes him off of the menu. With menu items including KC Strip, Louisiana Hot Links, Italian Sausage, and Prime Rib, just to name a few, can

Five huge stars!!!

Holy Cow!!......see what I did there?!......but seriously......this book!!!!
Can I start by saying I love anthologies! I have discovered in the past that I find new authors to add to my one click list whilst catching up with ones I love and being able to donate to a great cause at the same time is a total no-brainer! This anthology is no different, however that's where the similarities end! This anthology is like no other! But in a totally good way!

I loved this anathology it was adorable and fun to read. Im not sure which story was my favorite but I enjoyed all of them. I wish I could be able to order from a menu for exactly what kind of man im looking for. Each story had great characters and just like another reader said I couldn't wait to read and meet the next piece of meat from the menu. Will look forward to the stories continuing in the future.

Omg this is an amazing Meat Market Anthology is full of different authors who have all come together for an amazing cause. Each book is a short read but doesn't have anything less in the story than a full book, each story had me laughing and emotional, as they are all different but still fully delivered all aspects that a good book needs.
You won't be disappointed to grab you copy cause each story is different even though they all center around a meat Market that runs an Escort service to help k

One of the best anthologies I've ever read! Each short story was done in a way that I didn't feel cheated it was too short. They had some of the hottest passion and the sweetest love stories and healing and completion. The stories fed off each other and as you read into the next one you could move on easily as the characters intermixed in each book. I look forward to reading more! Book gifted to me.

All your favorite cuts of man-meat in one incredible book!

There are ten stories, ten men and the ladies who take them off the market, and each one is a keeper. The stories are told in chronological order so they're best read that way as they relate to the overall Meat Market business, but other than that aspect each one focuses on a different couple in their own standalone novella. Space doesn't permit a review of each story, but I'll brag a little about my top three favorites.

I love these anthologies -- not only are they short stories that you can read in a full clip, but each one ends in a HFN. Plus, the Meat Market anthology has a feel-good aspect to it, as it's to bring awareness to prostate cancer.

Admittedly, I wasn't sure at first how I was going to like the fact that every one of these guys were escorts. But for the most part, they won me over. A few of the stories stood out to me more than others, and I will definitely give those a read when they are expanded
Patricia Rohrs (words we love by blog)
Meat Market is my first anthology ever to read and I was hesitant at first because I had no idea what to expect, but it was such a well put together mix of stories. Each story had its own fire and sassiness to offer. I don't want to go into to much detail about the stories because I don't want to give anything away.

I will say that each man really fit his cut of meat (Tenderloin, Italian Sausage, Chorizo, etc...) and each one of those cuts really met their match in the woman that they fell for.

I really enjoyed this. I don't think that I can pick just one for my favorite as they all have their aspects that I really liked. I would say that Tenderloin made me laugh so hard because of that dog. I don't think that I can pick one that was sexier or steamier than any of the others because they all were in their own way. Each story is only about nine chapters long, so they're great if you just have a few minutes. It's stated that each story will be extended and published, and I look forward t ...more

Ten amazing authors come together for this wonderful piece of work. There is not a story that I couldn’t stop reading.

Each story is unique to the author’s writing style and yet flows beautifully bringing the anthology together. It is so sexy and fun. Did I miss Hot!! It has all the feels.
I will never look at a Meat Market the same way again.

There is one thing that makes it even better…All proceeds benefit Prostate Awareness.

This is a must read for sure!!

Meat market is just that all different authors writing about different types of love. Each story is a now happy ending which could lead to another fuller story. I loved this Anthology there is a romance story for everyone! A truly must read! *** I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Copy of this book ***

Omg I can't decide what to choose or which meat is my fave they are all so good, so I thought about the menu and realise there is a choice for every day of the week and 4 on Sundays...

What a brilliant anthology and great group of authors. A few are authors I have never read before but you can bet I will be reading some more by these lovely ladies xxx

The sexy times are hot hot hot and the characters are so damn good. I don't think I have read an interconnecting anthology as good as this ever.
