Three fabulous romance writers come together in this sizzling volume of stories about Southern bad boy gentlemen who are hotter than the Georgia asphalt.

It's bad enough that Hollywood hotshot Sloan Hawthorne's knowledge of Roxi Dupree's witchcraft comes from comic books and fairy tales. What's worse is that she's falling hard for the outrageously sexy hunk. Pretty soon th

I only read FALL FROM GRACE by Jill Shalvis It was a quick romance suspense with a 'sexy who did it' feel. Murder and smexy in the small town library.

"Southern Style" is hardly correct seeing as the main male character in one of the stories is from Chicago. This book left me wondering why anyone would even bother to put out a book like this.

Love Potion #9 by JoAnn Ross
This is the first story in the book, and it's all about magic and witches and whatnot. I know a lot about magic and witches, this story left me confused. Other than throwing in magic and witches for color, they did not enhance the story. I'd say the story would have fared better

i have only read 1 out of 3 of the stories i read "fall from grace" it is such a cute story. I sometime do not like it when people fall in love in one day in a romance because it does not give the plot time to develop but "fall from grace" is good even with the fast falling

Recommends it for: Anyon who wanted a quick read.
I've got several of these "Bad Boys" anthologies but this is the first one I have read so far, nor have I read any stories by any of the 3 authors. I could only give it 3 stars overall but the first and last stories were more like 4-star.

Love Potion # 9 by Joann Ross ... is about a witch Roxi and movie director Sloan who share the same erotic dreams. When Sloan sees Roxi in his friend's wedding photos and is told about her, he pursues her in the flesh. Roxi has commitment issues and this *3 Date

The first story was my least favorite. It has obvious backstory that is not given to the reader, the main characters leap into sex with mild kink within minutes of meeting. There are supernatural overtones but not really explained (weird shared dreams before they meet). It would probably have been better as a full length novel where the author could have fleshed out some of the details.
The other two stories were far better. Of course, I just like Jill Shalvis so I would probably like her story n

Want to read the last story..
Mixed bag of short stories.

I absolutely could NOT get into the first story, something about it was so convoluted. I tried 3 different times, almost "returned" this library book, then remembered that the other two stories were by different authors.

I completely gave up on the first story and enjoyed the 2nd and 3rd stories.

Were it not for that 1st story, i would have rated this 4 stars.

What threw me on this one is that we started off with a paranormal story, and I kept expecting it. Guess I should have read the description huh? I truthfully want to give this one 2 stars because it begins strong then just DROPS and struggles till the end.

The stories were ok, but I really only liked the Jill Shalvis story, even though that was too rushed. The rest were so-so.

The first two stories were DNFs for me.
The third was good, but rushed.

Very hot and sexy, but a little too outlandish for my taste.

I loved the stories by Jill Shalvis (one of my favorite authors) and E. C. Sheedy. Both humorous and fun.

Of the three novellas, I only liked Jill Shalvis' Fall From Grace. And even that felt completely rushed. The other two stories couldn't hold my attention.

Finished it tonight. The stories were okay, but nothing to rush out and get. Definitely not like any of the other "bad boys" books.
