This book has 3 novella's for three of the Winston Brothers Mack, Colee and Chase with a sneak peak at Zane's story at the end. This is a older book originally released in 2001 i believe. I'm always trying to catch up on the back lists of authors i really enjoy. I walked up to my bookshelf and snatched this one off the shelf

the other day and began to read. It was a quick one afternoon of reading.

First up is Tangled sheets which is Cole Winston's story. Cole is the oldest and took over raising

I'd heard a lot about Lori Foster from a friend, and so was curious as to how good her writing was. I've also noticed how completely unsatisfied I am with the bits and pieces of romance that I've been reading in my usual action/adventure/fantasy books, and so decided to take my friend's advice and give this a try.

To put it simply, it was mindless entertainment. :P The book was basically nothing but romance, relatively well-written, that lacked any semblance of reality. Well, maybe that's putting

I love how this book jumps right into the action. There is no pussyfooting around, talking about inconsequential details; no setting of the stage just immediate action. This is the major benefit of short stories. The reader is thrust straight into the sexual desires of Sophie and Cole in “Tangled Sheets.” This first story is all about having the courage to go after what you want and not being afraid of being yourself. The second story, “Tangled Dreams”, stars Chase and Allison, and is about ...more

Have I told you how much I love Lori Foster???? Have I??? Well....I do!

Reread this book...not a huge fan of short stories but the first and third ones are really good. The middle one seems really dumb to me!

Contemporary romance with protected sex.

This is a 3 story anthology about....the Winston brothers. There are actually 4 of them, but only 1 rates a full length novel.

Tangled Sheets - 3 stars. An ok story. This one is about Cole who raised his 3 brothers at age 22. Now he's 36 & ready to look for love. Sophie is 26 & owns a lingerie shop not far from Cole's bar. She decides she's too shy to approach Cole about something more than a friendship. So, she makes up a story about a twin

I loved the first story, about Cole and Sophie. It's really romantic, and really steamy. The ending was almost perfect, but something about how he asked her to marry him really made me cringe - not quite sure what, but it hasn't hampered my enjoyment of it. I will re-read this one again and again and still enjoy it.

The second story was totally unexpected, and a little weird, but I still enjoyed it - perhaps because it was so different. A couple of the themes in this one are dealt with in greater

3 short novellas, not much character development and sketchy plots make this kind of hard to believe. First story in the book is better than the second and third is the best of the three. The author has written many other stories which are far better. It's too bad that she didn't take the third story and make it longer, giving a more in depth look at these three characters and develop the plot more. It had a lot of unfulfilled promise and could have been turned into a full length book without ...more

Wow....all 3 books were good. I have to say that I laughed at all of them, but Chase & Mack's were hilarious. Chase had to deal with Allison's ghosts & Mack had to deal with modeling men's underwear for the woman he couldn't get out of his mind since college Jessica. Cole had to deal with Sophie's twin sister which she didn't really have to finally get her to admit that she had feelings for him, Chase had to put up with being able to read Allison's mind & Mack had to deal with ...more

1 - Tangled Sheets - Cole and Sophia have known each other for seven months. Everyday she comes into his bar for hot chocolate. Both have big plans for Valentine's Day and Shelly makes a brief appearance. Picture #1 for Valentine's contest.
2 - Tangled Dreams - is Chase's story. Allison inherits a haunted house with some interesting ghosts. Rose makes sure Chase can hear Allison 's dreams. Jake turns out to be after the jewelry.
3 - Tangled Images - is Mack's story. Mack gets roped into doing a

I love Lori Foster, but these brothers weren't as hot sexy as some of her other characters. I loved the first novella the most, and also Mack's story (the third novella). but the Chase story was a bit rushed for what she was trying to do, and as a result there was no background for Chase and Allison to fall in love. He just basically fell for her that night, while she supposedly liked him from before but still... there was way more build up in the 1st novella (Cole) and hence why it was the ...more

Cole Winston's story read August 2nd 2011:
Sophie's self esteem issues were a little over the top but, sadly, realistic. Cole handled everything as he should have, so good for him. A cute story, all in all.

Chase Winston's story read September 6th 2011:
As unrealistic as they get, but still a fun story to read. The twist was a liiiittle bit over the top but we got our HEA so no harm done.

December 30th 2011:
The third and last story, Mack's, is the one I liked most. It's sweet and simple if a little

In a compilation of anthology stories, Lori Fosters brings this family to life. The way Lori writes from a male point of view is incredible, and has me constantly guessing what these hero's will be up to next. With the Winston family, she has created a wonderful family, who you at times want to cuddle up and hug, and at others just reach out and smack them. LOL, and she's given them the perfect heroines. This is a not to be missed book, and it's follow up, by Wild, which is about the youngest ...more

Loved these stories! Sam was too cute in "My house My rules" Thinking he is sooo big and bad and gonna scare away the little Ariel! Huh! We are made of stronger stuff! Gil was so funny, telling himself he didn't want the girl of his dreams. because she wasn't what his corporate image needed. Love doesn't let you pick and choose! And Pete, Well, he finally found his HEA, great read, as always from Lori!

Another really cute brother series for Lori Foster. I really thought Tangled Sheets (Cole's story) was really cute until I read Chase's story, Tangled Dreams. Now THAT was cute! and Mack's story was just plain HILARIOUS! All 3 were short, sweet and to the point. The only one I would have liked to have been longer was Chase's story but that just cuz I got a real kick from Rose and Burke's story! ;) lol

Each steamy story about bar owning brothers got better than the previous. All had good plots so my rating 3.5* 1) Cole and boutique owner Sophie ... skimmed some pondering. 2) Chase and Allison ... gimmick for internal thoughts. 3) Mack and photographer Jessica ... love when male pursues older woman.
3 stories.

I liked all the stories, probably Cole's one the best. Alot pf people didn't like Chase's story but i thought it was quirky and funny.

All three stories were very simple. Man falls madly in love with woman very very quickly. But they are short stories after all.

I always go for Lori Foster when i want a light hearted fun read - with a HEA.

Sweet quick read

Tales of how the first 3 Winston brothers find their brides.

Cole is the eldest and has raised his 3 younger brothers on his own since their parents were killed. The brothers run a bar in their town and have the opportunity to meet LOTS of women.

Read this one awhile ago. I liked it - particularly the third story with the younger brother and older woman. Loved how he was with the daughter also. All three stories are good though - light, but sexy.

This is a collection of 3 stories about 3 of the 4 Winston Brothers (hence the name.) The middle story includes ghosts, for those who are into them.

Not a bad set of stories, but not the greatest, either. Still, light, fun to read and a good beach book.

This is a compilation of the previously published stories about the Winston Brothers. I had previously read them in their seperate anthologies, but it's nice to have them all together to easily read them in one shot.

Recommends it for: 14+ and mature
I have read this collection many times. It continues to delight me. Classic Lori Foster. The brothers are ideal if not just a bit alpha. But I love that in a man, protective, loyal, not afraid to exhibit their love and care to their mates and family.

All I ask is for these characters to exist, be single, and find me to fall in love with. I really don't think that is asking for too much :)

Love the Winston brothers, but what Lori Foster male do I not love??!? I think my favorite is Mack, but honestly, does a girl really have to choose?!?
