Check out all of my reviews at:

If you want to buy a collection of books in a box set, this is the one to get. This grouping of 8 full length stories will keep you turning the pages with hot alpha ex-military heroes, the women they fall for and the diverse suspense plots that brings them together. All of the stories have explicit sex scenes that are all well written and I felt they were never gratuitous. I now have so many more authors and series to add to my TBR

Honestly when I started this book the only author I was familiar with was Abbie Zanders, which I'm a big fan of. I was very excited to read her book Not Quite Broken since it contained a character from a former book in her Callaghan series. Her story Not Quite Broken was great, emotional, sad at times, funny but heartfelt. Enjoyed reading about old friends from past books and catching up and getting more of Brian and Tori's story was amazing. I began reading the other authors and found new ones ...more

Tuff Enough by Samantha A. Cole
Tuff and Chet are next door neighbors who are instantly drawn to each other. Both knowing that hooking up with your neighbor is a dumb idea especially if it goes south. They try and be friends at first but eventually the chemistry wins out.
I really liked these two characters. They were both independent and loved their job. They both were smart about remaining friends but sometimes the heart doesn't listen to the head. I liked reading about all the times that the tw

I have read several of these stories, and each story is a wonderful romance with drama, engaging intrigue, suspenseful action, and steamy passion. I highly recommend this intensely enjoyable anthology.

“Never Forget” by KaLyn Cooper is the beginning to a new intriguing series which has started off with a bang! As the story delves into a decade long conspiracy involving high ranking members of the CIA, we are faced with psychological exploitation, betrayal, life threatening attempts, even death. I

Love Under Siege is a collection of military romantic suspense stories from some amazing authors. Some authors were new to me and some were some of my favorite authors. Overall, I enjoyed the book.

In Tuff Enough by Samantha Cole, you get the story between Jason "Tuff" Tanner and Concetta "Chett" Suarez. Jason and Chet are neighbors who begin to flirt with each other. Jason is hesitant to get involved because of his past and his job, but the two begin to get closer as they begin to work with Meat

When I started this book, I was familiar with the names of all the authors, but I had only read a few of them. I am now on an expedition to read more of ALL of them. Every one of these stories is gripping, each has characters that bring out the best in each other, and each leaves you wishing it was longer!

TUFF ENOUGH – Samantha A Cole

One of my favorite authors, Samantha Cole has the most unlikely hero – a rescue dog named Meat. Yes, the main story involves humans, Tuff, a private security oper

An amazing line-up of authors, who delivered with each story. I was only familiar with a couple of the authors but now that I've completed this series they will all be on my list of automatic go too.

Who does not love a man in a Uniform. They all delivered in the heat factor as well as providing a well written story that you could not put down, a must read.

We start this collection with Samantha A. Cole. Who I never miss an opportunity to read whenever she releases a story. When I read the blurb,

Be warned! I wanted to read this collection only because it was the only way to read the specific stories by two of my regular and favorite authors. I found out that was not all I got! What started out as giddy pleasure as I quickly read Tough Enough by my favorite author, Samantha A. Cole and then more excitement as I immediately started and quickly completed Mace by Maryann Jordan.

Don't miss this wonderful collection of hot romances!

You're in for a real treat with this amazing box set. Eight military romances, each one an excellent love story filled with heart-stopping action and heart-warming love. Most of these books are part of a larger series of standalone romances by the respective authors, directing readers to many more stories from the authors they meet in this set.

Oh my god it was beautiful. My heart! I love the Men Of Mercy series!

"This book was so amazing, I loved the plot, I loved that once Aaron had Celene back he wasn’t willing to let her go again. I loved their romance. Actually one of my favourite scenes in this book actually my two favourite is when Celene tells Caroline what happened when she and Aaron had sex. But even better than that was seeing it ourselves written. When the commander caught Celene and Aaron having sex I co

Love Under Siege is a collection of book by various authors. These books are well-written contemporary romance, some with heroes with military backgrounds, some with law enforcement backgrounds. The characters in all these books have one thing in common, they

This book is full of ups and downs. I pretty much read continuously until I finished all the stories in this book.

Tuff Enough was a great book. I've read books by this author before and loved those also. Tuff and Chet was cute together. This book is definitely one that grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. A good amount of action and suspense, and the scenes with Tuff and Chet are hot. Good read.

Brilliant box set of Military romances. Each book in this set very different, yet spellbinding and leave you wanting more.

Each of the books in this collection brings you hot alpha males, who find themselves falling for women who have somehow got embroiled in life threatening situations. Although the back stories behind each book are very different and each man has his own story to tell, they have all have seen action, they are all trained to the highest degree, they have all experienced loses in

This is a review of Abbie Zanders' story 'Not Quite Broken' in the anthology. First, I am absolutely thrilled that Abbie wrote a story that ties the Callaghan clan to her Protecting Sam book that introduces the Sanctuary and the group of vets who set it up and run it. I am eagerly awaiting future stories that will come from that, so 'Not Quite Broken' really checked that box for me. But no one will be lost or confused if they haven't read 'Protecting Sam' or any of the 'Callaghan Brothers' serie ...more

Whew… what a great collection of books. They are full of love, heat and feature Military Men. Several were written by authors that were new to me, which is always a fun thing. Others were by authors I know and love. Trust me when I say they are all worth reading and will have you turning the pages quickly to see what’s going to happen next. There is something for everyone in this anthology, the stories are full of suspense, romance, intrigue and excitement. We have brotherhoods of men that serve ...more

Her Guarded Hero by Caitlyn O'Leary -

Dalton seeks solace as he still struggles with a tragic loss from five years, to the day, before. But, the silence is shattered by a gunshot, several of them in fact. Add to that a woman on a horse seemed to be the target, and he couldn't have been more surprised...scratch that, he was, when the woman performed a perfect tuck and roll and landed almost at his feet. He's used to seeing many things

Love Under Siege is an anthology of 8 military suspense stories. Most of the authors were new to me and I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I absolutely loved this group of stories and I feel like this book has helped me to discover some new favorite authors.

Mace by Maryann Jordan is the start of a new romantic suspense series centering around Lighthouse Security and Investigations group started by Mason Hanna. It completely checked off all the boxes for me... spunky heroine, cute kid, hot alpha

So far I’ve only read Her Guarded Hero by Caitlyn O’Leary but I needed to review this book! It is part of her Black Dawn series, I’ve only read a couple of this series but it didn’t detract from the storyline at all (it’s just made me want to read the other ones!)
I love that Caitlyn writes about Alpha males but her females are never weak, they might have suffered trauma or be going through a drama but each one is strong in her own right and Aurora is no expectation. I liked the way the relation

Review for Not Quite Broken by Abbie Zanders
Brian McCain is still struggling with the affects of his time in Afghanistan so he is not ready for a relationship. Tori Donavan is a loner and would like be a relationship with someone like the Brian, the handsome bartender at Jake’s bar, however she’s not sure she is ready to settle down in Pine Ridge or doesn’t know if he is even interested. This is a captivating, suspense filled emotional story. My heart went out to both Brian and Tori and all they

While I did pre-order the entire set I was able to grab hold of the advance copy of Never Forget by KaLyn Cooper. I have read her stuff before and am happy to say she reminded me of why. A great intense read about a high ranking official in the CIA having dreams of woman. At first he thinks she's his future. Now he realizes she's his past. A wicked game of hide and seek and now they are being sought but why. Great read with plenty of excitement and some intense chemistry.

Great set of Stories!!

*****Her Guarded Hero – Caitlyn O’Leary – 6 stars
This story will break your heart, then sew the pieces back together again (in the best way possible). Includes brilliant character building, intense relationships between the SEAL team and then Dalton and Aurora, not to mention the ability to gain the trust of abused horses. Amazing read – and yes I needed to rate this story six stars!!

*****Lincoln – PJ Fiala – 4 stars
Ex-military Lincoln Winter is in the Bounty Hunter busines

This is a review for Abbie Zanders book Not Quite Broken.

It's a great story with the addition of the Callaghan family. If you haven't read those the I reccomend that you start with those, you don't have to but why miss out on even more great stories.

This is the story of Brian McCain who you met in Shane and Lacies story. It looks at how he's feeling after being held in captivity for 3 years., how he's coping or not. He's working in Jakes Pub one night when he's overseeing a womens hen night and

This was a great collection of stories from some wonderful authors! We meet a lot of couples who's stories were standalones but were interconnected to different stories in each respective authors series. Loved the suspense and romance together and will probably make you want to get to know the other characters that were part of the stories.
