The best mixtape always has a mix of favorites on it— songs playing in the background at Jude and Derek’s wedding or when Simone finally falls in love. Loud beats pounding the dance floor when Blue tries to seduce Tristan in public, or sleepy notes written late at night while Jude is on tour. Strains of familiar music bring heart-gripping memories rushing back in—memories

Short tales that are sweet, loving, serious, funny and sexy...

A magnificent walk with the Marian’s ! More from our great characters in this series. I loved this so much. Mixed tape, refers to the list of songs you can play for certain tales. This is a fantastic read, we see Jude and Derek, Simone and Joel, Blue and Tristan, clubbing, Jude and Derek, with Jude’s loneliness on tour, Beau and Maverick, Dante and AJ, Teddy and Jaime stranded, Tilly and Harold’s secret, rescued by Mark, previously,

I love reading about the Marian family. This book was made up of stories about some of the couple's in the family. This book started with with Derek and Jude the night before there wedding it was heartwarming and heartfelt Jude was worried that Derek would change his mind. Blue and Tristan decide to leave the kids at home for a weekend of staying in a hotel and going clubbing. This was funny Tristan didn't do the gay club scene so it's all new to him. They end up getting caught doing it in the ...more

3.5 stars

Made Marian Mixtape is a collection of stories set in the world of the Made Marian series. It would be best enjoyed by readers who are already familiar with those characters and the world of Marian. All of the Marian favorites are here in one book from Blue and Tristan’s night out on the town, to Simone’s wedding, to a longer story featuring Ammon, scenes with Teddy and Jamie, as well as a new face or two. Some of the stories are quick glimpse scenes and some are

I loved this collection. It was a divine pleasure to re-visit the Marion clan. Such an amazing family that is all about love. In this collection we catch up with the Marian siblings. We meet new characters and we get an in depth look at Ammon Marian whom so many have begged for his story. Of course a Marian reunion would be incomplete without Granny, Irene and Aunt stilly. Buckle your seatbelts and join the ride that is the Marian family. The shenanigans will bring you to tears with laughter!

Perfect for Marian Fans

Although each little ‘song’ is self-contained and enjoyable, this book is best enjoyed by those who have a passing acquaintance with the Made Marian world. If you’ve read all the big books, you’re in a great position to truly enjoy this. If you happen to have read all the smaller stories as well, you’ll be likely to fall even more in love. Heck, you might be inspired to go back and re-read the whole series. I know I was tempted. So many books, so little time. (Quick note –

I loved jumping back into the crazy that is the Marion family.
Ammon's and Mark's story was a stand out! So sad but so beautiful too.
There is so much love and fun in this family.
As always, there is plenty of laughter and sexy times but overall so much love and happiness.
Highly recommend.

I would like to quote Mary Poppins: “Practically Perfect” because honestly this is. If you are a Made Marian fan, you will be blown away with delight over this collection of stories.
It gave me all the feels… So incredibly good to connect with this family again and their amazing characters.
That being said, I am struggling to get a decent review up because tbh I don’t want to go into specifics. As these are all short stories centering on the men and family members of the Marian family I don’t want

Fun collection of stories and more info on these well loved characters

4.5 stars...So this was a fun collection of stories to read but three definitely stood out.

First, I loved the story of Simone and Joel’s wedding day. After Borrowing Blue I had a soft spot for Simone and always wondered why we never got more info on her. Then there were references to her and Joel in later books but no details. So it was nice to get that story finally.

Second, my favorite story was the story of Ammon and Mark.

Wonderful collection. Fun, sexy, sweet.

The Made Marian series is a favorite of mine, and I enjoyed every single one of these stories that go along with the series.
It would be impossible to pick just one although I think Ammon’s leads the way for me. They all had characters I love or loved getting to know in the case of ones I didn’t know as well yet, and wonderful glimpses into their lives
I really only read short stories, etc when they go with series/ characters I already love as I much

A collection of Marian family shorts

3 stars!

I really enjoy the comedy element to the Made Marian series but I find that this collection fell mostly in the serious or seriously sexy category.

I will say that Blue and Tristan ( Borrowing Blue) are my favorite couple and I found their short in this collection to be my favorite. The comedy is still there for this couple. I appreciated the insight into Aunt Tilly and I hope for a bit more from her story.

As for some of the other shorts I found them

I enjoy visiting with characters that I loved in their own books, but I don't necessarily need a whole other book for them. Once the HEA is there, I don't really like disrupting it, so this book of short stories and vignettes is perfect.
For example, I would probably balk at reading a whole book about Aunt Tilly. She's awesome, don't get me wrong, and I'd probably eat my words if Lucy'd done another book like Wilde Love, but in Made Marian Mixtape she's got Tilly and Howard's story covered just

A collection of Marian series bonus scenes.

Love Shack = 3 stars.

Derek and Jude are my fav Marian couple so I like reading anything extra about them which prob got them an extra star more than I would of rated that part. It seemed rushed and incomplete. It was very cavity inducing sweet but too short. Was just the night before the wedding happenings and then zip past the wedding. Would of been nice to have more. Extra bonus points for having the grannies in the scene. Love the 3 old ladies the

More Marian’s!

Made Marian Mixtape couldn’t have come out at a better time for me. I just finished another read of the Made Marian series, this time on audio, so I was more than ready to catch up with all things Marian. No surprise here - but I loved it! Catching up where it all started with Blue and Tristan, Jude and Derek, and Simone’s well-deserved HEA. Plus Mav and learning more about Ammon. Speaking of Ammon!! Holy freaking hotness there!!

This book was awsome to read and catch up with all the Marians. Jude and Derek, Jamie and Teddy agreeing to settle down and starting a family, Griffin and Sam getting dirty in an elevator, Simone's wedding to Joel, Beau and Mav and much more. The best however was to get an inside into Tilly's past and how she became to know her Senator, ending in an HEA. It is nice to cath up with this family, now bound to the Wildes and see how they are getting on in their lives. They are a crazy bunch but have ...more

Another great Lucy Lennox book

This book was so very good. It had so many stories in it. Each one was well written and fully developed. It gives the reader a good look into the lives of the Marion clan that we had been reading about. I particularly liked both Tilly's story and Amon's storylines. It was good to know more about their backgrounds. Also it explains alot about how Tilly is the way she is. LOL which is fabulous. I very much want to be just like Aunt Tilly when I get to be her age.

This collection of short stories is just everything if you loved the Marians half as much as I did.
The stories vary in length from just a few pages, maybe a glimpse in the life of one of the established couples, to a couple of complete stories (Ammon, the latest addition to the Marian family, gets his own complete novelette).
It's not exclusively MM, we also get Simon's wedding and we dive into the real background of the one and only Aunt Tilly.

Yeah, these were pretty cute, and even though I have mixed feelings about this series, it was nice to see all of the couples again in these little shorts except where are Noah and Luke?? I know what you're saying, they're not Marians, but to that I say, they were in the main series dammit they got their own book!! That counts for something!! And they were my favorite! And we don't even get to see them?? COME ON!!! Apart from that, I have to say I enjoyed Ammon and Gideon's stories the most, so ...more

This is the PERFECT compilation of Marian stories!

Wow. I didn't know I needed this book in my life until I started reading. I didn't want it to end! The thing I really loved about this compilation was that, not only did Lucy bring us the stories of well established couples, she gave us new stories with new characters as well. I really loved the behind the scenes feel that these stories gave me. And of course I can't forget Aunt Tilly! It was refreshing to get a story from Simone and Tilly's

What an amazing addition to the Made Marian series. There are so many treats in this collection that it is hard to know where to start. We catch up with all the main couples, get a bit more of Simone's story and get a real insight into Aunt Tilly who also gets a short story. This is the perfect book to dip into whenever you have a few minutes spare as most of the stories are very short, but, given that it is an extension to the books they still feel complete. Fans of the series won't want to ...more

Made Marian Mixtape by Lucy Lennox is a collection of stories from the Made Marian universe. Those familiar with the series, are treated to snapshots in the lives of their favorite characters but are also introduced to new interesting characters.

The stories off a mix of drama, emotion, humor, steam and sweet romance. It is well written, interesting and entertaining. The characters are amazing and loveable - they are characters you wish you could know in real life because they are just amazing.

This is a wonderful addition to the Made Marian series. All the characters are funny and loving. I enjoyed every additional glimpse of couples I already loved, and I fell quickly for the new characters. My favorite story, though, was Tilly's. She is the wild and crazy, fearless great aunt to the clan, but she is also so much more. I cried over her story. This book is wonderful, funny, and emotional. I definitely recommend it, though it will be twice as wonderful if you've read the rest of the ...more

It's like coming home. Getting to visit with all your old favorites and getting some new ones in too. I love this collection of short stories. Lucy nailed it! From steamy to serious, it a great "mix" of all. If you are a Made Marian fan, this is the perfect addition to the collection. I especially love that we get points-of-view from characters that have always been discussed via others. The only problem I see with having this is we will need repeat performances by Lucy to provide continued ...more

AMAZING! Another great add to the series. I loved all these short stories (14 total) and got to see all your past favorites! One of the stories is with Ammon who is a new Marian so I think that might be my favorite, he's too adorable! Simone gets to shine with a wedding story that will give you all the feels. The Marian's are a crazy wild bunch and I can't wait to see what happens next. I voluntarily reviewed an 'Advance Author’s Copy' of this book.

Catching up with the Marians

Can’t go wrong with the Marians! Love seeing different perspectives and behind the scenes. Sneak peeks at what happens next makes it easier when you finish the series. It’s so hard to say goodbye when you fall in love with an entire family not just a single character or couple. Funny, emotional, hot.. all the feels... never a dull moment or disappointment from Lucy! Loved it, binged it, couldn’t put it down!

Definitely A Mixed Bag Of Marians

Once again Lucy Lennox has given us a fabulous little snippet into the Marian men & their partners lives. This was a great way to keep us all updated on everyone but with loads of laughs and tons of love to go around. I loved ALL of these stories, but I particularly liked Aunt Tilley and Harold’s story and was so pleased everyone has a very happy ending. I’m just hoping there’s more to come, I love these guys and their families

THere is nothing better than getting a chance to revisit some of your favorite characters. Made Marian Mixtape gives us that and so much more. We also get to fall in love with another Marion...Ammon won my heart!
There is humor, romance, tears, love and so much happiness all contained in this one special collection of stories.
Lucy Lennox has outdone herself and given her readers the best Christmas present they could wish for!

Lucy writes some of my favorite couples and I loved this collection of Marian shorts updating us on the family we know and love. It also reminded me why I love these men and how much I've missed them all. We also get to meet a few new characters and that is always exciting! I haven't had the pleasure of reading the entire Marian series, and this made me go and purchase the ones I was missing! Lucy always knows how to make me laugh, cry, swoon and always want more.

I don't know why Lucy felt the need to write this. I think she did a good job tieing up everything in other stories.
These stories seem rushed and well, poorly written. I never like it when authors just can leave well enough alone and just end a series.
Lucy, please just put the Marian family away. We have enjoyed them now let's move on. You are a great writer and this is doing you no justice.

Oh Wow...

....... this book is absolutely majestic. Chock full of awesome short stories some of which had me howling - they were hilarious!! It was great fun catching up with the Marians and I really loved the new(er) characters of Ammon, Mark, Gideon and Hunter - hopefully there'll be more to come from these guys.

This collection is an amazing addition to the Made Marian series. These are wonderful peeks into the lives of beloved characters and introductions to some new faces. As always it's filled with so many emotions from joy and pain to laughter and healing, everything I've come to love about this beautiful family.
