When the daylight fades and time stands still.
The feeling of flying from just one touch.
Moving slowly, kissing softly.
The flash of fever, becoming lost in the flames.
Going under.
These are the moments that leave us breathless.

The Ivy symbolizes dependence, endurance, and faithfulness. This collection will feature brand new stand-alone books

5 Stars for Legend by CM Lally

I have been a fan of CM Lally's since I read the first book she published and it has been so much fun seeing her progress and grow as a writer. I think Legend has jumped up the list to one of my favorites of hers. The characters she has created and the story she has weaved are so wonderful and easy to connect to. I adored getting to know Ian and Neenah and watching them find the strength to overcome their pasts. There are even a few background characters in Legend I

I am leaving a review for Michelle Windsor's contribution "Catching Chase." If the other stories in this collection are even half as good as this was, and I know they are by the caliber of authors listed, you have an amazing book on your hands!

Meagan Lewis and Jasper Chase literally bump into each other outside a hotel entrance and have an instant connection, even with Meagan's firey comebacks. He is wildly attracted to her and calls her a little spitfire. Jasper is a famous NFL player for the

This is a great collection of books written by many talented authors! I enjoyed each of the stories told within these pages and found myself endeared to many of the characters. One of the things that I love about the Leave Me Breathless: The Ivy Collection is that it includes full length, standalone novels and novellas and not just excerpts that one so often finds in these types of anthologies. It was enjoyable to read writings by some authors that I am already familiar as well as discover some ...more

I am reviewing Michelle Windsors contribution to this anthology...
If the rest of the stories are even nearly as fantastic as Catching Chase then this book is going to be such a winner.
A sheer JOY to read ,Michelle's writing is Excellent and completely drew me in right from the beginning and I did not stop loving it until the end.
The Romance between Jasper and Megan is such a whirlwind they instantly fall in love after a chance meeting in the lobby of the hotel in which they are both staying.

I’m in love.... (Michelle Windsor’s - Catching Chase)
This is by far one of Michelle Windsor’s best stories! Before I started this journey of falling in love with Jasper and Megan I knew nothing about American football but now thanks to Michelle’s superb writing I know the basic rules of the game...may have also asked for a New England Patriots jersey for xmas too ;) I’ve literally become a women obsessed so much so that I inhaled the whole story in less than 8 hours! I couldn’t put it down!!

Jasper chase is the prince sports fairytales are made of . I really liked the main characters names in this book. Megan & Jasper will have your kindle burning up with the intense attraction that they have to one another. A steamy read that will leave you breathless wanting more.

This is a great collection of authors that will give you a mix of great stories. Each story is a standalone in this set and you won’t be disappointed when you are done with it. I highly recommend this collection because you will be able to find the story that will be exactly what you need and a new author or even an old favorite. This collection has everything.

I’m leaving a review for Legend by C.M. Lally. This story is a continuous surprise. We are not talking about the usual story of a sports’ romance with a famous athlete and his glamorous life, nope on the contrary, the author in this book gives a thorough glimpse of the real life with all its contradictions. Our hero is indeed a famous soccer player. When his life changes in a matter of seconds, the issue will make him revisit his entire way of looking at things . Here comes the heroine, a woman ...more

I was expecting to skip around or skim some of the authors’ stories in this anthology, so imagine my surprise when I did the exact opposite. I read every. Single. One. I had some familiar authors that I knew I’d love (Evan Grace, KL Humphreys, Ashley Lane), but I wound up devouring every novel/novella between their contributions, as well. Not only did I have a few days’ worth of good reads in one big book, but I found some new authors to hunt for and add to my TBR pile also!

-Anti-Venum: Vipers MC by Ashley Lane (4.0stars)
Ivy Scott and Theo Bourne were high school sweethearts until he left without a goodbye. Now, he is now the president of the Vipers MC. That might not be an issue if Ivy wasn’t so angry oh, and a member of a different MC! Can they put their differences aside and work together to help a girl? A fast paced, quick MC read with a great cameo from some of our favorite boys at Heavens Guardian MC. Told in dual POV

Catching Chase is fantastic. Jasper and Megan are so darn hot and steamy...not to mention perfect together. A perfect sports romance that you simply can’t put down. This is one of my favorite stories by this author and I cannot wait to read what she comes out with next.

The rest of the stories are equally fantastic by Evan Grace, KL Donn, C.M. Lally, among others. I have found some new authors that I look forward to reading more from. It’s an anthology you will read from start to finish without

This collection of stories was refreshing. I enjoyed getting the chance to read stories from new to me authors, as well as a few familiar faces. The context of all of these stories, while HEA, are not simply straight forward tales. No, they include suspense, angst and lots of sexy times. In summary, there is a story in this collection for everyone. You will not be disappointed.

This collection is diverse and full of fun stories. I liked that some were longer then others because I could them work each into a different part of my day. The stories are all well written and I discovered some new to me authors. Each story is unique and different, yet fun and full of wonderful characters. I enjoyed them all. Here is a short review of what I liked most about each of these stories:

Review for Anti Venom by Ashley Lane

5 stars definitely! I loved this story and the characters that she has created and that they are in the Heavens Guardian world ! This was definitely a page turner and hope we get to see more from Ivy and Venom ! I love how Ashley Lane makes these strong willed beautiful heroines to go with the sexy alpha heroes and I think Ivy is by far my favorite yet ! Love how she knows how to handle herself but also lets her man take control when needed . Couldn’t get

The Change Up by Evan Grace
Loved this story! It’s a baseball romance about two best friends who end up together before Sawyer goes off to spring training and it ruins their friendship. There’s a few great twists to this story when they reconnect a few years later.

Catching Chase by Michelle Windsor
Such a cute story! This is a football romance that’s starts as a hot one night stand and ends badly after a huge misunderstanding. Fast forward almost four years later when they randomly run into

Holy smokes what a read. Jasper and Megan are instantly attracted and she has no idea hes a big deal. As in he plays professional football. He loves that she sees him as just him. It's all fun and falling and flirting until things get intense.
My emotions were all wrapped up in this book. The highs, the lows and every in between. One of the best reads this year. Love love love. Well done, Michelle Windsor.

The Ivy Collection is a wonderful collection of full length books by a group of very talented authors. It was a pleasure to read these stories, each has a special couple who were searching for that one person to make you whole, who makes your life complete and your future guaranteed perfect together no matter what life throws at you, even if it was for the very first time or a second chance in love. It was great reading a new book from either an author you have read before or getting to know a ...more

I am reviewing Ashley Lane’s contribution Anti-Venom. What a great read, as are all of her books. Neat twist with having a woman as Vice President. The novella was fast past and kept you reading and wanting more. The only bad thing I can say is I wish it was longer! It was good to see characters from previous books. Can’t wait to read more from her. After reading this if you haven’t read anything else of hers, go and read her Heaven’s Guardian series, you won’t regret it.

Anti-Venom by Ashley Lane

Was an awesome short story. Fast paced and packed with action. I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish. With its twists and turns this book was one hell of ride.

Hope we get to read more about these characters. Really enjoyed their story. I can’t wait to read more by this author.

I was so excited to see a return to the Adair Empire, of sorts. Viktor is immediately in love with Emmy. They come together in a way that is unconventional, but is so full of steamy and sweet. There are some hurdles for them to overcome, but love wins in the end!

I thought that this was a wonderful collection of reads. I love these collections so much. I feel it is a great way to take a chance on a new author, while having a safety net of being familiar with others. Plus, each collection offers a wide array of themes so I feel that there is something that will appeal to almost any romance fan, while also giving you a nice sampling to maybe broaden your horizons and find something new to enjoy. A great group of books in a must read collection. This is my ...more

This story was good, but I have issue. Not sure how to word it, without giving spoilers away. But let's try and hope you will understand it. Lol. So, there's someone who needs to be six feet under in first chapter. But does he got killed? Big fat no. Somewhere midway, I was so frustrated, that I wanted to stop reading, because... Guess, what? Yeah, hes still freakn alive! Just kill him already. Though, I was a bit appeased few pages later. Call me bloodthirsty b¡tch. *shrugs
