THE SUPERHERO AND THE NSA AGENT was really cute and really sexy! NSA agent Shane was bossy and sarcastic and a perfect opposites attract match for sweet, Superman cosplaying Damian. A blind date turns into a sexy night in for these two and while everything happens at light speed there's no denying the chemistry between Shane and Damian.

Not every author can pack so much action, emotion, and sexual tension into a short story. This author can. I read these three shorts a while back in the Heart2Heart collections, and I enjoyed them just as much this time around.

In “The Superhero and the NSA Agent," there is action, excitement, and “super-spicy” times. Damien and Shane are attractive, honorable, sexy, and lovable. Their interactions in so short a time are such that I could easily envision a long-lasting HEA.

Fun stories

These stories were so much fun to read. I've read them all before, but it was good to read them again.

The Superhero and the NSA Agent-
Damian and Shane are fun. They both need someone in their lives and while Shane thinks he's okay, he isn't against the hot superhero from the hospital.
This is a funny and cute story that you shouldn't miss.

San Francisco -
Bernard and Eloit have a nice meet-cute before they both ends up being winners of a free date. The guys are cute together and while

Fun, quick, super-sexy, 5-stars

After reading a few angsty, action tales in a row, I needed something light, fun, quick, and super sexy. I'm a fan of Hailey Turner and of the Heart2Heart anthologies, but somehow, I'd only read one of these three stories previously and it was well worth a reread.

My favorite, and a new read to me, was the first story of Shane and Damian. Throw in my love of action and law enforcement, add some light-hearted banter, work partners, and superheroes, and I was totally

Read the last two shorts in the original Heart2Heart Anthologies, so I'm just copying my original reviews here. Only one I'd not yet read was the first.

The Superhero and the NSA Agent: 4.5 stars
UNFF, this one was super hot! I smidge rushed, but really just barely, and I really liked the characters and the connection.

San Francisco - 2 stars
Both won. Meh chemistry.

The Top Shelf: 4 stars
This one was really sweet. Fun concept, super hot, great chemistry. Each chapter ends on such a good ending note
The Superhero and the NSA Agent: 4 stars
Fleshed out characters in a cute, funny and deliciously sexy story with connection, chemistry and a believable HEA.

San Francisco: 2 stars
If a guy brings me a drink from the bar then I'm thinking it's spiked! There was little story of the characters background, no connection or chemistry and no HEA, only a tentative HFN.

The Top Shelf: 3 stars
I'm gonna assume that the Heart2Heart does some kind of in depth background check on its members 'cos there was no w

3.5 - 4 Stars

I really enjoyed these from Hailey Turner. Different to the chaos she is usually causing with her characters heh. Although there was still some chaos!

These are three short stories so yes, they do move quite quickly but it's expected with novella/short stories and I felt like I still got to know the characters in the small amount of time we get with them.

Shane and Damien were my faves.
