Due to time constraints, I was only able to read Hudson Lin's story. But, if the rest of these stories are half as good as Dare to Dream by Hudson Lin, then this anthology is absolutely fantastic!

This story follows Diego and Derek, two laws students, and their growing bond. Diego is a DACA recipient who learns the importance of standing up for what you believe in. Not only is there some super sexy scenes between Diego and Derek (because, we all know how magical Hudson Lin is with her romance/sex

PARKING LOT COWBOY Rebecca Crowley ★★★★1/2
"Volunteering here was my Election Day resolution. Instead of scrolling through social media feeling angry about a bunch of men on Capitol Hill telling women what to do with their reproductive systems, I decided to do what I could to make them feel safer about exercising their right to bodily autonomy, and show them they'll never be alone."
Loved it. Multiple heart-eye emoji levels of love. Gripping and sweet and painful and uplifting, from the powerfu

Rogue Nights is a multi-author anthology featuring seven new novella length romances, stories of women and men fighting back against political ideologies that seek to disenfranchise women and minorities through racist and oppressive policies. It’s part of the Rogue series that came about as the result of the backlash to recent political events. Featuring people from all walks of life, sexual orientation and race, they are inspirational tales of finding love while fighting the good fight.

This anthology was a mixed bag for me. Talia Hibbert’s Resisting Desire was actual perfection for me, exactly what I was hoping for from a “brothers-best-friend” romance. I enjoyed it so, so much and Talia keeps being one of my queens of novellas and shorts. Dropped Stitches by Annabeth Albert was cute and sweet, but didn’t sweep me off my feet the way I hoped it would. I didn’t get invested in the relationship of the characters as much as I thought I would, considering that it was kind of a sec ...more

For Resisting Desire by Talia Hibbert ONLY

4 to 4 1/2 stars

Nina looked straight at the camera, a sad smile on her face. “It makes me feel like the unfairness in the world may never end. But that’s okay, because hope never dies.”

I enjoy the friends-to-lovers trope when it's done well and TH packed a whole lot of chemistry, humour, connection, affection, and spice into this novella, while also touching on a variety of important issues and providing some food for thought.

I'm trying to read more romantic stories with feel-good endings and I'm glad I started with this. There is something to unpack about me gravitating to a collection focused on social justice themes - my guesses are a desire for representation, more expansive definition of romance, and honestly some conflict . Resisting Desire by Talia Hibbert, Dropped Stitches by Annabeth Albert, Dare to Dream by Hudson Lin, and Sacred Son by Robin Covington were my favorites because my heart was warmed and I wa ...more

Resisting Desire by Talia Hibbert

"Are you okay?"
God, why did he have to care about her? And why did she have to love him? Her voice hard, she clipped out, "Obviously."
"You want a hug?"
"I would honestly rather die."

I love Talia's heroines! And, well, her books in general. 5 stars.

Dropped Stitches by Annabeth Albert

Knitting, elections, and old high school crushes. Sweet. 3 stars.

Cowboy romance that I.... liked...?!? 4 stars.

Resisting Desire by Talia Hibbert

4 stars
I was wary about starting this as it's been a while since I read a m/f story. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nina and James were being total idiots-in-love and falling for your sibling's best friend is one of my favourite tropes.

Dropped Stitches by Annabeth Albert

I love all of her books and this one isn't any different. Meeting your high school crush after a long? She nailed this. I absolutely loved Bea and Kira. This left me wanting for more.

I’ve read and enjoyed some of these anthologies before, and since there were also several familiar names, I just had to pick this up! There are seven stories included, with two authors – Talia Hibbert and Annabeth Albert – that I’ve read and liked before. Without further ado, here’s individual reviews of the stories:

“Resisting Desire” – Talia Hibbert – ★★★★

I haven’t read much of Ms. Hibbert’s work, but what I have I’ve loved! This is a bit different from what I’ve come to expect from the antholo
I requested this ARC because there are so many authors in this anthology who have written stories that I just adore. Talia Hibbert, Annabeth Albert (she wrote a f/f story y’all!!), and Hudson Lin were the ones that I knew, but this anthology introduced me to other just as amazing authors.

This book features a lot of racism from different sources in Britain and the United States; political activism feature knitting, marches and immigration policies, publishing articles on Brexit, and abortion clin

This is an anthology where one or both of the characters are involved in political activism in one small way or another. It has a little something for everyone with f/m, m/m and f/f couples all finding their HEA.

The first story is the one that spoke to me the most. Resisting Desire by Talia Hibbert is a very passionate story and even though it’s only a short one, it still has so much emotion and pent-up longing in it. James is head over heels in love with his best friend’s little sister, but re

Overall, this was a collection of quality stories. The only issue was most are honestly just too short and lacked a true resolution. I have never read such short little novelettes before, and quite frankly, most left me wanting. With that being said, I'm not a fan of short stories, as I want the full story experience (beginning, background, big bad, and HEA). However, even I cannot deny that these were well written and worth the price. I've included ratings, thoughts, and reviews of each story b ...more

Resisting Desire by Talia Hibbert
m/f. Lovely and passionate - about race, political bullshit and two people realizing they are in love.

Dropped Stitches by Annabeth Albert
f/f. Sweet second chance romance, and I love the way knitting is woven into the plot. (See what I did there?)

Parking Lot Cowboy by Rebecca Crowley
M/f. The hero is the strong, silent type. And, as the saying goes, still waters run deep - he has a lot of pain, anger and frustration living deep down. The heroine is an earnest

Dropped Stiches is Annabeth Albert's addition to the Rogue Nights Anthology. It's Annabeth's first f/f and the first one I've read and I loved it. Bea is a political activist and also a knitter and she runs into her high school crush on election night. Kira is just coming off a bad breakup but reconnecting with Bea and being forced to go out and have fun is just what she needed. Bea and Kira feel the sparks between them, but is it just a rebound or can they shed their pasts and try to move on to ...more

I totally enjoyed Judah and Adam’s story in Sacred Son by Robin Covington. This the only story I have read so far in the anthology Rogue Nights, book six in the Rogue series. This is a hot m/m story involving the attraction and history between Judah and Adam. Ten years ago Judah and Adam ended an intense relationship, as Judah did not want to keep Adam from pursuing his law degree at an Ivy League college. Since then, Adam has made a career for fighting for the rights of Native Americans in cour ...more

This anthology is a collection of seven tales of romance, hope, passion, and the promise of new beginnings.

~ Sacred Son by Robin Covington This is a beautiful, moving and steamy second chance romance. Adam Woodson and Judah Nighthorse were young lovers. They were on two very different paths and Judah did not want to hold Adam back so he walked away from the man he loved, breaking both their hearts. Now years later, Judah needs Adam to help him get his son back. Neither has forgotten the other a

Rcvd an advanced reader copy from the authors for giving my two cents. A great collection of short stories. In Resisting Desire, blogger Nina is in love with her brothers bff and when he basically denies her she is mortified and tries to cut off ties to mend her heart. But when her latest story has people after her she can only go to James for protection. In Coffee Shop Around the Corner, we have coffee shop owner Palmer wanting to ask Maddy out on date but always misses his chance. As a busines ...more

I bought this anthology because I heard Anabeth Albert was part of it. Surprisingly, her story did not turn out to be my favorite. I found most of the book to be entertaining and cute, and enjoyed the political and social justice aspects that made the stories unique. But even with that uniqueness factor, not many of these stood out for me. My favorites were Parking Lot Cowboy by Rebecca Crowley and Dare to Dream by Hudson Lin. I'd never read anything by either author but will definitel

This is the only book I've read so far in the anthology. If you're a fan on MM Romance then I highly recommend Robin Covington's writing because she does this genre justice. I always get sucked right into the story. This book was no different. It made me wish this longer than novella length. It's a great second chance story. I could feel the emotion rolling off the characters while reading this. I could also feel the connection between Adam and Judah. I was really intrigued

Seven stories of progressive, politically active wonder and love. I adore this collection and recommend it for most everyone.

I purchased it for the @taliahibbert novella, but every romantic story (some in the LGB, but not T, spectrum) that followed nurtured my soul. I mean, it's not realistic that everything turns up roses in romance or political races and activism, but it's so refreshing to read stories about protests, elections, voting and supporting human rights, in California AND Kansas, an

I have always love Robin Covington’s work so when I saw her name on this anthology I had to buy it. I promptly skipped all the others and dive right into her contribution. Jude and Adam are hawt with a capital H. The second chance genre always strikes a cord in me cause of my own second chance romance. Thank you Robin for showing all how pure same sex love can be! I’ll be back to review more once I read them ;)

Resisting Desire by Talia Hibbert - Alright short story. Didn't absolutely love it like the rest of this authors books, but it was fine.

Parking Lot Cowboy by Rebecca Crowley - I have a hard time with short stories normally, and this one was okay but did feel a bit rushed towards the end.

The Coffee Shop Around the Corner by Shae Connor - This was cute. I love the whole we were writing each other and didn't know it, but also had a crush on each other thing.

Sacred Son by Robin Covington

Robin writes really great stories. I love that even in a novella, she can create such feelings for the characters that you forget it’s only a short story. I only wish we could dive more into the background of Adam’s work with the Project and find out what happened to Gideon’s mom. Maybe this could be a suspense book by RC?

Nice collection

I’m not a huge fan of short stories. I find they’re mostly just... too short and I’m usually left wishing each one was longer. I bought this mainly for the Talia Hibbert story and I really enjoyed it. My second favorite is the last one by Robin Covington. The rest were just meh for me. Short stories aren’t my thing. Lol. :)

I was a little disappointed that I wasn't able to count these as individual books, but it's probably for the best because they really are just short stories, somewhere between 50 and 75 pages long.

I enjoyed many of these and would like to look for additional books by several of the authors.
