This review is based on the following stories.

Sealed with a Tryst & At Death’s Door by Devon Monk
These two stories go hand in hand. Crow makes me laugh when he shows up because you know chaos will be following him. It is no different this time around. I felt bad for Delaney, she has to deal with all the chaos, then it's time to switch the powers from one god to another and everyone is giving her a hard time about taking her vacation. You can about imagine all hijixs that goes on. I did like how

Reading all of the stories included was never the plan.

I read 4 out of 6 short stories.
The story by R.L. Blain was what amounted to a prequel & it got 4 stars.
Both stories by Faith Hunter got high ratings 4/5 stars
The story by Diana Pharaoh Francis wasn’t to my taste & ended up being a DNF.

Guys, I have been so anxiously waiting for Dirty Deeds to release, and now it's finally here! This book collects several novellas and shorts from some of my favorite authors, and naturally totals about six hundred and forty pages. I read all of it in one night. It's that good. Go get it, and read it. ASAP.

Included within this anthology you'll find works by Devon Monk (a novella and a short story, both set in her Ordinary Magic world), Faith Hunter (again, a novella and short story, both set in

It’s a great anthology! How great? Let me count the ways…

Devon Monk has two related entries which are apparently both from the Ordinary Magic Series:
"Sealed with a Tryst"
"At Death's Door"
How good were they?

There's a new limited time anthology, Dirty Deeds: An Urban Fantasy Collection, out this week (and available for six months) with stories by Faith Hunter, and Devon Monk series and also stories from Diane Pharoh Francis and RJ Blain.

Devon Monk's Ordinary series story was actually a twofer. There was a longer story with Delaney trying to break free from her duties - and all the chaos of wrangling a town where gods come to live as mortals - and gain a little vacation with her fiance. And there was

Shorts that make you beg for more

This anthology is a super fun read that takes you into the worlds of some fabulous authors. Devon Monk’s Ordinary series is a fun place. The pet sitting story deserves to be read aloud! Who would have thought Than could be so fun!
Faith Hunter sets up the Everheart clan for a re-evaluation by long time readers as new information makes us see them differently. Eli and Linc seriously moved up in my estimation.
R. J. Blain teases us with some new characters destined

Dirty Deeds: Urban Fantasy Collection is an anthology with novellas written by Faith Hunter, Diana Pharaoh Francis, Devon Monk and R.J. Blain.  I am a huge fan of Faith Hunter, and reading any novella or short story is a must for me.  I will write a short review on Hunter’s stories, revolving around her Jane Yellowrock series, and can only say that the other books are also part of their series, which I have not read.

I'm a fan of both Diana Pharaoh Francis and Faith Hunter so I one-clicked this one.

THE PIXIE JOB - Diana Pharaoh Francis

This is in her Mission Magic series. I've reread book one The Incubus Job several times and am looking forward to The Elf Job which is releasing soon. The plot involves a Pixie-Giant wedding in the very fancy hotel where Mallory and Law work. Lots of action and magic, plus some relationship moments.

A really liked 3/4 of the authors stories in this one. Devin Monk, Faith Hunter and RJ Blain all had great stories that didn't NEED all the backstory of the series they were pulled from, though if I hadn't read the Ordinary, Oregon series from DM, I'd have probably not enjoyed it as much. While I have read and loved some of Diana Pharaoh Francis' other novels, I hadn't read the series she pulled this story from, and I just felt I was missing too much backstory and world building to enjoy it.

My interest in this book is for the Devon Monk Sealed with a Tryst and At Death's Door.
Amusing, with plenty of laugh out loud moments. You can't help but be drawn in to the town of Ordinary and enjoy the quirkiness of the residents. Each book or short story brings you home to Ordinary. Allows you to visit with the family, even when the storms are striking and the roads are flooded. Delaney and her sisters have their hands full when Crow sells off Pandora's boxes at a tent sale. It takes all the
Sealed with a Tryst - Devon Monk: ★★★

At Death's Door - Devon Monk: ★★★

Bound into Darkness - Faith Hunter: ★★
Doesn't work as a stand-alone; if you haven't read the Jane Yellowrock series it won't make sense

At The Ties that Bind - Faith Hunter: ★★

The Pixie Job - Diana Pharaoh Francis: ★★
Also doesn't work as a stand-alone (except this one I have read the main story The Incubus Job, not that it helped. I didn't remember the characters or world-building)

Doggone Mess - R.J. Blain: ★★★★★

Loved it!

I have read many books by Faith Hunter and her 2 stories were wonderful! I really hope she writes more from these perspectives. I have also read books by Devon Monk before and this one was great! The other two authors were new to me and I'm so excited to find all their books and devour them!! Thank you for the lovely stories. Each of the stories in this book are well written. They are completely enjoyable alone, not knowing the ,"worlds" they took place in didn't make a bit of differenc

A mixed bag.

I really enjoyed the two stories by Faith Hunter, but was already a big fan of her Jane Yellowrock series. After that, I think I liked the two stories by Devon Mink the best. The setting and characters on her Ordinary, OR setting were fun to read about. I found the rest of the stories were just okay, but I was unfamiliar with the writers and their worlds, so that may have effected my opinion.

Love love love

I bought this for two authors and boy did they deliver! I wasn’t expecting another author to be so good (I hadn’t heard of them before now) I am now reading more in their series since they had me at chapter 1. Ten ten am gonna read again and I have a new author to follow! Highly recommend.

Loved this! It didn't hurt that several of my favourite authors are the contributors to this collection - that is why I bought this book. The novellas though were great! I particularly enjoyed RJ Blain's contribution - when your boss decides to matchmake for you, things can get ... interesting. Such a hilarious blast! ...more

This is a read in one sitting book as all the stories will suck you right in. Devon Monk is a "new to me" author that I will definitely read more of. Faith Hunter is always amazing! RJ Blain has done it again, and I am anxiously awaiting the continuation of this one. It took a bit to get into the story by Diana Pharaoh Francis, but it was as good as the rest. ...more

Nice collection of fantasy

I enjoyed most of these stories but was not entranced by the one with a lot of violence. I thought RJBlain was at her best and will keep my rye out for the story's continuation.
