Wild Thang- USA Today Bestselling Author, Tessa Layne – A million stars. I now own every book she has ever written!

All In- USA Today Bestselling Author, Mira Lyn Kelly – I loved this story before it was even All In so … :)

French Kiss- R. L. Kenderson – My first by the author and I liked it. For its length, I expected a bit more depth to the characters, but I liked it. Sweet story about coming home and finding your place.

This set of books was brilliant & beautiful written! Give Authors come together with their own story with one common thread, there is a Speak easy bar named There in Spirit. Five different story with five different drinks!

WOOHOOO!!! Get your drink on and sit down and enjoy this amazing anthology. I am part of R.L. Kenderson’s ARC team and read this ARC mainly for their story but holey-moley I’m so happy I read them all because I have some new favorite authors to follow (I mean stalk). I’m a huge fan of stories that have the instant chemistry and a great story and funny side characters. This anthology gives you some fun drinks to try, some mile-high club fun, some great push and pull, some laughs and definitely sa ...more

Sin and Tonic is a collection of short romances all centered around bars, speciality drinks, a speakeasy, and all the emotions! Only one of these authors I’ve read before, and I wasn’t sure if I was going to read each of these stories, but I’m so happy I did!! I found new authors to follow, new couples to fall in love with, a huge helping of laughter, a dash of tears, mixed with drama, and poured through a strainer of love right into my reader! I loved these stories and definitely recommend this ...more

Wild Thang - Tessa Layne

This book had me giggling almost from the start. As Mason makes the effort to seduce Luci with his words in a NY airport lounge.

Luci definitely gets the best of him when she throws her grant rejection in his face. Not so easy now is it Mason.

Plans thwarted, Mason gets creative and gets on the same plane with Luci. Conversation heats up as turbulence scares Luci. I think my kindle melted.

Lots of fun, laughter, and plenty of heat!

"The rainbows are back, and this time they brought kittens!"

All five of these short stories were delightful to read, filled with plenty of steam and swoon-worthy heroes. Four are standalone romances, while the other is more of an extended epilogue for a couple whose story was previously told. Each story is also complemented by its own cocktail recipe, several of which I plan to try for myself. A certain popular romance author makes a cameo appearance in more than one of the stories, acting as a

I would give the collection 3.5 stars, but some of the stories I would rate higher. r
5 short stories that are sweet, sexy, ridiculous, provide a HEA (somewhat), and a cocktail recipe to boot for each book. The Tessa Layne and Mira Lynn Kelly books were my favorites.

Wild Thang - Tessa Layne
Wow. Luci and Mason burn up the pages in this book. It's instalove, but not really since they met two and a half years before this encounter.

I liked both characters. They liked each other. They actually respect

The great thing about anthologies is reading stories/authors that are similar to each other. It gives you a small taste of something you might not have experienced before. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. This one definitely works. I’ve found some new authors that I will seek out their other books.

Wild Thang -Tessa Layne. ❤ Tessa is the reason I have read all of these. I love her work and this story was as steamy and fun as the others I have read.

Great stories!

Wild Thang - I call this story the fantasy woo. The way Mason pulled out all the stops to convince Luci to give him a chance is the stuff of dreams. No need to win the lottery when you have Mason

All In - This story almost made me cry when Lanie and Jason split up. I’ve read tons of romance books but this is the first time I’ve read it done in cake. Seriously, Sophia is a b!tch.

All In and Wild Thang were the draw for me in this anthology, because I'm already a fan of both Mira Lyn Kelly and Tessa Layne, but my list of authors has expanded to include the other ladies in this set. Each story, while short in length, was long on fun.
Luci is quite the little spitfire in Wild Thang, tempting and surprising Mason at every turn. I love the lengths he's willing to go to so she'll stay in town!
Who knew cake could be such an interesting addition to a bit of private time for Jaso

This is an anthology of four short stories written by authors and based in Kansas City: Tessa Layne, Mira Lynn Kelly, R. L. Kenderson, K. C. Enders, and Kayti McGee, and the book was edited (I think) by Sierra Simone, who showed up as a character in two weeks of the stories. I was only familiar with the first and last author in this group prior to reading this collection. The stories were all light, sexy, and sweet. They made me interested in reading more from the authors I have never read befor ...more

I read this book for Mira Lyn Kelly’s story – All In.

Jason was the owner of a hotel where Laine has a lot of weddings booked so they have to work together a lot. They have a sort of love-hate relationship and after one disastrous wedding, they acted upon the lust that they have for each other. I had one issue with that, they ruined a perfectly good cake. The cake didn’t hurt anyone but I digress. Jason does explain why he is the way he is about relationships and that gives an insight into his m

This Anthology was a tall glass of Sin & Tonic for the soul, and everything else you can imagine. These 5 authors took me on a super great ride with a lot lotta sexy, that I never wanted the fun to end. Each story gripped me, and I found myself not being able to put it down until every last page was inhaled, so it became quite the day project that I needed more of. Every story is well written, and even though they're of the short(ish) variety, I didn't feel like I was cheated. And even thoug ...more

Sin & Tonic is a great mix of romances by five different but talented writers. The stories are all set in some sort of Frank’s establishment, be it a bar, speakeasy, tavern, cocktail lounge or pub, bit each story and the stars on them are very different. Having said that, they all have in common great writing and fun plots filled with neat characters (and most definitely heat). Read the publisher’s blurb for decent summaries of each story and then download, sit back and enjoy. But for the fa ...more

What a great collection of short romantic stories. Each is set around a great drink or bar. Some of the authors I've read before and some were brand new. I'm so glad I read this book. Now I have an entire new list of authors to follow.

My favorite book happens to be from an author that I already follow. She is amazing and this book is incredible. Tessa Layne does it again. Wild Thing had me laugh and fall in love with Luci and Mason. Although they met several years prior, one the meet again you c

I skimmed through the titles of this collection. My review is mainly focused on Tessa Layne's story, Wild Thang. For a short story, it is steamy, sassy, and satisfying. And it was definitely wild!! Mason Carter & Luci Cruz had instant chemistry. Luci was a firecracker and Mason was a bit of a charmer. She didn't indulge Mason the way other women have. She made him work for it. The 24 ultimatum was a genius idea. And, it had Mason going through hoops to pull it off. Can't wait to see what Tes ...more

Great Way to Read These Authors!!

Wild Thang – Tessa Layne – 5 stars

Luci is on her way out of the country to start a new business after a local grant is refused. Billionaire Mason has just a few hours to change her mind (and apologize for not reading her grant application).

Sweet and sexy vignette of two people trying to find their way in the world. Mason loves her sass as most kowtow to him due to the dollars in his bank account. Humor and following through on a request that may have started as a

What a compilation of stories. I loved Mira Lyn Kelly's All In. The story between two coworkers that really weren't was a slow burn but add in some cake and things move faster than a kid on a sugar high. She is a wedding planner and he is the hotel owner/ manager. They have been working with each other for years but he had been burned in the past and she was gun shy of commitment. Every one at the hotel is rooting for them since they all see what the two of them can't. That they are head over he ...more
Romance With A Cause (formerly bookwithahook)
Sin & Tonic is a sexy collection of novellas by quite a few reputable authors.

I have only read from one of the authors in this list but that didn't deter me from enjoy them as every bit as Tessa's. Each story is written in a way that will captivate your attention as well as your time and a guarantee that you won't be disappointed with the content.

There is definitely some sexy sinning going on while alcohol was involved. Each story is filled with what you'd expect with a name like Sin &

A collection of five books. The first three were very enjoyable, sweet, romantic and I enjoy them a lot. However, the last two were not good enough. One of them was the second part of a trilogy which I think was not a very good idea to include it in this collection and the last one was an absurd story. So, this is my punctuation for them:
Wild Thang by Tessa Layne 5 stars
All In by Mira Lyn Kelly 5 stars
French Kiss by Renae Au & Lara Kennedy 5 stars

This is an entertaining collection of five short novellas , each with their own hot couple with their own story to tell. The characters are strong and have a hot chemistry. The author brings humor,drama and tons of emotions in these stories. She brings some fun drink mixes along with the hot romances and weaves a fun and sexy book that will give you hours of reading pleasure. The stories move quickly and smoothly and I enjoyed reading.

I am reviewing truthfully as a recipient of an ARC copy of this collection.

I have been following Tessa Layne's books for as long as I can remember. I signed up to review this because of her included story.

I was happily pleased by the other, new to me, authors who made fantastic contributions to the complete collection.

If you're looking for a fun boxed set to explore some fabulous new indie authors this is the one to choose.

Grab your copy, get to a comfortable cool spot and keep the drinks on ice because these authors have made a collection that's full of enough reading pleasure you won't want to let go of.

I loved each story. The characters take you by the hand and get you hooked to them. These stories are sexy, brilliant and the right blend of all you love as a romance fan.

I received an ARC for an honest and voluntarily review.

These books were all so good, it would be hard to pick a favourite. Irish Legend moved me the most and I haven't even read the preceding book, Twist! Wild Thang assumes a level of familiarity with the author's work - while I liked the story, back story references left me confused rather than providing clarity. The other three authors are favourites of mine, and their contributions did not disappoint.

Loved this bundle.

I thought this was the perfect summer treat. Sreamy and flirty.
I was particularly into Tessa Layne’s novella.
But each novella was great. RL Henderson, Mira Lyn Kelly, Kayti McGee and K.C. Enders. Pick me!
