Full review when I'm at the laptop tomorrow.

Right, this is a lovely collection of four of Posy's previously released shorter novellas and they're all nice easy to read, relatively low angst and moderate steamy romances.

With this novella, they've been loosely connected into her series as Hugo sets up a chat room into which each of one half of the pairings joins.

So, in order:

I still don't like short stories or novellas, but it seems I'll never learn. Give me at least 200 pages and I will probably enjoy it more. Now, given my statement, this was a good novella bundle. However, there was more telling than showing in each stories, and all of them has single POV's. The chat room that connects the characters to each other isn't really necessary, it doesn't really add anything to it, it just is.

One chat room - five members - four stories

Nice read, four totally different stories bounded by the chat room ‘Lonely Hearts’

- Hugo has his Kevin already from the North Star series
- Luther meets his Eric in Bent Arrow
- Mark meets his Cas in Stroke of Luck
- William meets his Nate in Momo my Everything
- Andrew meets his Shep in Love on a Battlefield

We are witness from very different angles how men find their life partners.
Between the stories they meet in the chat room to evaluate.

The author uses a clever technique to tie four novellas together along with a connection to The North Star Series. It works well and bundles all four stories cohesively via chat room conversations between Hugo (from North Star) and one half of each of the couples in the novellas. I liked it, it allowed me to get to know each of the guys organically and get a taste of their personalities going into their new relationships.

LONELY HEARTS is a 4-Novella Bundle.

The cover did not appeal to me and would not catch my attention while browsing for my next read. Had it not been offered by the promoter to post and/or read about, I’d never have noticed this bundle by Posy Roberts.

Over all this Novella Bundle is so good. There was something for everyone and I normally don’t do a lot of novella’s but I am really glad I got this. The men were so different but came together to encourage each other to find and not give up on finding love. The writing was so good and there wasn’t any unneeded information, no receptiveness, it was really well written and I know I will be picking up more by Posy and I can’t wait.

I loved how Lonely Hearts was interspersed between these 4 novellas plus North Star Trilogy on the side. I have read all four books before, but I really loved the connection Posy Roberts wove between them, and it’s great to see a bit about Hugo and Kevin too.

Bent Arrow, I just loved. I have friends and family who work in oilfields and it’s kind of neat to get a little peak in the oilfields. I liked Luther and Erik, both were so nice and had a great chemistry between them. I really loved the

This is a wonderful set of books. Men who are scared, but find what's missing in their lives. Love. True, unconditional love. It's takes work, yes, but it's worth it.

*Individual reviews with the books
Love can sometimes be elusive, fickle, or lost. It can also be surprising, transformative, and right under your nose. In a chat room there are five men giving and taking and shunning advice regarding their own search, or avoidance, of a forever kind of love. Meet Luther and Erik who find more than a quick encounter after a glimpse of a tattoo suggests they might have something in common. Marc loses everything and while he's reestablishing himself he happens across the defensive, prickly, and ...more

As a HUGE fan of Posy Robert's North Star Trilogy, I was elated to pick up Lonely Hearts and see Hugo in the Lonely Hearts Club chatroom. What a delightful surprise.

The whole trilogy is sweetly done, with chatroom conversations in between the novellas. This works so well at letting us get to know the characters, both before and after their stories. This Lonely Hearts Club chatroom idea is brilliant and a whole lot of fun.

In the four novellas, we get a great variety. Each story stands alone well,

Bent Arrow
Luther has been enjoying his life of one night stands and temporary jobs and housing. He didn't plan on finding Erik, but now he has to figure out if being alone is worth the loneliness. Erik hides his attraction to men after seeing someone else get beat up and after his own scarring experience. He doesn't want to be a secret or a booty call anymore. Erik wants to be in a committed relationship and have it not be a secret.

I liked the story. I think that the new edits cover problems

Previously to reading this collection I had only read Love on a Battlefield, so I was certainly excited to read more by Posy, and was not disappointed. This novella bundle, unlike many I've read before, connects the stories and characters via a chat room, moderated by Hugo from the North Star trilogy (another must read if you haven't yet). As there are several stories, I think it might be fitting to give my review on them individually.

Bent Arrow is one of my all time favorite novellas, so I was ecstatic to have it open this series!

Employees in the oilfields know little but long work hours, moving on the fly and lonely lives, but that all changes when Luther needs a plumber and Erik comes into his life. These guys, because of their homophobic work environment, have to keep things on the down low until Luther makes the choice of going home and accepting an inheritance that’s in serious need of a plumber!

Loved, loved, loved

This is a bundle of a few novellas so I will break them down.

Bent Arrow: Luther and Erik........2 men who want the same thing but both work where it is not safe to be together. When Luther finds himself as a homeowner, Erik is there to help fix it up and also push Luther past his insecurities. Life isn't all that bad when you work together to make it better.

Momo: my everything: William and Nate.....William isn't fully out, but can Momo convince him to take a chance? Can Nate/Momo, get William

Five standalone novels combined into one, Bent Arrow, Stroke of Luck, Momo, My Everything, and Love on a Battlefield, if you had done just that it probably wouldn't have worked. However the author has beautifully combined them by adding the chat dialog of the the Lonely Hearts chatroom. And you know what? It works, kind of a prolog to each story.

Andrew, Marc, William and Luther all have their stories to tell why the shy away from love. Five men in the closet working to find the one true love

This is a quick, fun and entertaining bundle of novellas and I really enjoyed them. I love the concept of the five men meeting in a chat group and how they support and encourage each other. The author does an excellent job of tying all of the stories together with the group chats and I wish there had been more of that. They each face different challenges in their relationships but they all want that elusive HEA. My favorite story is Momo, My Everything and I love Nate the most of all of the ...more

This is a collection of short stories held together by what happens and said within a chat room aimed at people wanting to find love, To support each other on that quest, as one by one they shed their lonely hearts and find love in various ways and situations.
Each of these stories have been published separately before but with the adding content and the common thread of the chat room, this is a book reading if you are looking for enjoyable stories with little to no angst and HEAs all round.

This is a great collection. I had read some of these previously, but I loved reading them again. All of the stories are very good, well written and great characters. My only complaint is I want more.

Posy Roberts started reading romance when she was young, sneaking peeks at adult books long before she should’ve. Textbooks eventually replaced the novels, and for years she existed without reading for fun. When she finally picked up a romance two decades later, it was like slipping on a soft hoodie . . . that didn’t quite fit like it used to. She wanted something more.
