I love Anthologies and couldn't wait for this one. So many amazing authors all together to create an epic book.

One of the first stories I read was by Shannon Nemechek called Torn. It takes place in the military where you meet Tuck and Riley. They had met a few years ago, but for some reason, Riley wouldn't continue the relationship. Fast forward a few years, and they meet up again. But something from Riley's past threatens to destroy any chances at a relationship. Can these two perservere?? You

Reviewing Chasing Casey by Jane Anthony

Absolutely Brilliant !!!
I really loved this book, now I don't usually like Love triangles they completely frustrate me,and I hate being torn between two heroes.
Two men who are very different but have one woman in common Casey.
A.J. is her present 
Austin is her past..The question is who will Casey choose.?
A.J.had my heart there was no problem for me to story just blew my mind ,beautifully written it will keep you on your toes and captivated

I love reading anthologies and this one is filled with works from a few of my favorite authors and a couple that are new to me.

One of those stories, Chasing Casey by Jane Anthony, pulled hard on my heartstrings. Casey's a tough country girl trying to make it in the city. She's sworn off men but rocker/mechanic AJ slowly breaks down her walls. Their arousing whirlwind romance is put on hold when she is summoned to go back home.

Once home, her ex-fiance Austin reappears and is determined that Ca

I read Torn by Shannon Nemechek. This is a military love story. Tuck and Riley met years ago and they had this undeniable connection. But the Army and life got in the way. Fast forward six years and they meet again. Do they feel the same way about each other, as they did when they first met? I can't wait for you to read this story and find out.

Review of: Someone Worth Protecting
I received an ARC of this novel and was hooked from the blurb. Who doesn't want to read about a Hollywood action hero having to rely on a petite bodyguard to keep him safe? The banter between the two was great fun (never petty) and the author did an amazing job showing us the people behind the facades. The pacing was perfect and the scene setting wonderful. I loved every minute of this story and highly recommend this anthology based on this story alone.

I've only read Sugar & Spice by Phoebe Alexander so far but will update reviews as I read more from the boxed set.

This is what Phoebe does best...give us what we THINK we are getting -- all that sugar...and then gives us what we HOPED we were getting...all that spice. Cy only has to bide his time, find the culprit and then he'll be home free to do what he wants to do with his life...and that is NOT working at his parent's amusement park. Jolie just wants to take care of her family and will do wh

From the Anthology, I read: Drowning in You by Amanda Siegrist and Jane Blythe

What secrets lie beneath the murky water of the mysterious lake?

Detective Carter Dixson stopped dead in his tracks when he saw the lifeless body at the edge of the lake. Even though he was a seasoned detective, he was still shocked at the brutality of murder. He kept his eyes away from the water as he surveyed the surrounding area. He felt a chill go through his body and he had a feeling that this case would somehow be

Review for The Middle Road by KG Reuss and CM Lally
The Middle Road is very good story with a bit if a lesson built in. Carter has learned some devastating news and decides to take action. He departs on an adventure to experience many things he has missed in life.  Along the way he meets some wonderful people, sees some beautiful places, and has as much fun as he can. I love that Carter is aware of the changes he needs to make and really lives up to the frequently irritating yo

This is a very enjoyable collection of romantic reads. This box set offers a lot of variety, which I feel means that there is something for everyone. Whether it is the enjoyment of a fun treat by a familiar author or the delightful surprise of you finding a new favorite, there is plenty of potential in this box set. I particularly liked Lemon Tarts & Stolen Hearts by Dylann Crush. This was a charming novella. It is Misty and Jake's story. If you are familiar with the Lovebird Café series, this c ...more

I read Girl In A Country Song by Avelyn Paige.

Elizabeth “Lizzy” Moulton doesn’t feel that she’s not going to get anywhere in life. Alex McCloud has some past regrets that he’s hoping to change. This story was written by an author that I’ve followed for a while, Avelyn Paige. Usually when I see her name I think of plenty of steam heat and men who are in charge. If you noticed the title, you may want to play some country music – Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, or even Kenny Rogers come

This year I have been a bit obsessed with box sets because of the deals of so many old fave authors with new undiscovered authors all coming together to give us different stories in one bundle.

This Sweetest Obsessions helped me discover so many new authors.

One of my fave so far is Chasing Casey by Jane Anthony
I just love how Jane takes simple everyday ordinary people and tell extraordinary stories through them. Casey and AJ are two characters you can easily fall in love with. Both have their fla

Sweetest Obsessions a contemporary romance box set with 25 tantalizing and sexy romance stories by some very talented authors. I have only read a couple of the stories so far but will be going back to read the rest.

I’m writing this review for Girl in a Country Song by Avelyn Paige. Loved, loved, loved this story!! This is the story of Alex and Lizzy. It’s a story about life not being what you thought it’s about fame, fortune, and family. When you have it all you figure out what is truly important. When fate steps up and says this is your future and you need to grab it!! It’s about letting go of the struggles and hurt and realizing that the one you have always loved is right in front of you!!

*I reviewed Drowning in You by Jane Blythe and Amanda Siegrist which is included in the Sweetest Obsessions contemporary romance box set set.*

Drowning in You was a powerful story with elements of love, trauma, fear, and horror! Rose Gowan and her best friend, Evelyn, had clung to each other through thick and thin. They vowed to never let anyone control them or tear them apart. So, when her best friend did not show up when Rose was expecting her, Rose knew something was terribly wrong. Despite he

Chasing Casey by Jane Anthony:

Ok... ok..... So Casey seems to be a little southern heart-breaker! AJ is taken with her from the very minute that he saw her. They were enjoying a nice little courtship when she got called back home to take care of the family ranch. Well.... wild horses (or sketchy ex-fiances) couldn't keep AJ away! So as the title says.... he chases Casey! And then he gets to deal with life on a ranch after being a city boy all his life. Not to mention he feels like he has to comp

This collection of stories is absolutely fantastic.

The one-story that I read and loved so much was Torn by Shannon Nemechek.

Now anyone that knows me knows that I am a huge sucker for a military romance, throw in the fact that said romance is written by my favourite author and we have a winner.

That’s exactly what this Novella by Shannon is. I loved every single second of this intense, emotional read.
I finished this book feeling like I needed a whole lot more of this amazing couple.

A must-read

Lots to choose from...some better than others.

So with most collections - some stories are better than others. I would say "Our Song" by Samantha Morgan was one of my favorites and I also enjoyed "Duet" by Emily Robertson although it is a companion to a series I haven't read - it wasn't really necessary to enjoy this one.

I'm sure there is something for everyone in here.

I voluntarily requested and reviewed an advance reader copy.

I only read Chasing Casey, Jane Anthony's contribution to the boxed set, but based on that I went and bought the set! I am a huge fan of her work already, and this story had everything I love about her writing. Great story, a fantastic (but for real, enough flaws to make him not perfect!) hero, a great heroine in Casey, a hot chemistry and a dash of the f-ery this author is known for make this a MUST READ! If the other stories are even half as good this set is more than worth it!

Sweetest Obsessions was an excellent collection of steamy and romantic stories. I loved the variety of authors featured in this set.

Sugar & Spice by Phoebe Alexander

I loved this sweet and spicy romance, the first in the Spicetopia series. The Undercover Boss and the Red Velvet Queen are wonderful characters who both have struggles in their personal lives. The storyline is excellent and engaging. I cannot wait to read more of this series.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I've read Lemon Tarts & Stolen Hearts by Dylann Crush as an ARC for an honest review.

Yet another great romance novel by Dylann Crush! I loved Misty and Jake's story. Dylann is one of my favorite romance authors for when I need a sweet and  funny book to read. I've yet to not love any of the books Dylann has written. When I pick up one of her books I know I'm not going to do much else until I finish the entire book. Lemon Tarts & Stolen Hearts truly did steal my heart and once I started reading

There is a lot of books in this anthology and this is my review for Dylann Crush's Lemon Tarts and Stolen Hearts. I first read about Jake and Misty in Sweet Tea and Second Chances. This is a prequel novella to that book. Jake and Misty are high school sweethearts that broke up over a year ago. Misty wanted to try life in the big city of Omaha, Nebraska and Jake loves small town life in Swallow Springs, Missouri. Nothing could get her to stay not even Jake's proposal.

So far I have read the book Drowning In You by Jane Blythe and Amanda Siegrist. This book had me riveted from the first page. It’s the first book that Amanda Siegrist and Jane Blythe have written together and their writing blends together smoothly. This book is about dealing with and conquering our fears. For Carter it’s his terror of water.
There is a lot going on in this book. Carter and Rose are dealing with, fear, a serial killer, love, twists and turns and a roller coaster of emotions. I ju

If she doesn’t get this interview done, then she’s going to lose her job. She has a time and place arranged with Boone, someone who hasn’t done any other interviews, as yet. She is to m ...more
