Review of an arc of Bad Good Neighbor by Ker Dukey

Super short and packed with all the deliciousness that only instalust can give you.

Fast forward several months and Jameson has moved in next door. Melanie's annoyed by his constant partying and the two women he seems to have living with him. The nerve of him, destroying all of her fantasies. Howe

I'm reviewing My Hollywood Heart by Haley Jenner
Well this was a short quick read that I absolutely loved. It felt like you got a full story in this novella. It was a little hilarious, a little heartfelt, extremely hott, and will definitely give you all the feels. Arie and Blake had witty banter, some amazing chemistry and their steamy scenes downright explosive. This was an excellent addition to the Love in Lockdown anthology.

Review for Locking Him Down by Marley Valentine

This book was the perfect sweet, sexy pick-me up that I needed in these tough times.

I loved Oliver and Micah’s connection from the start, and I loved the contrast of how incredibly sweet they could be, and at the same time they could be incredibly hot together. These two just fit so well together, and I loved it.

This was a sweet, sexy and enjoyable read I couldn't put down. It's well-written and well paced. This is a fairly short story, but it pa

Forbidden Delights by Cora Reilly

Update: Apparently this is so short because she plans to write more for the couple but this was not disclosed anywhere before release. I'm tired of authors and their dishonesty and attempts at quick cash grabs. I get this is for charity, but let us know all the details upfront when are expecting a short story, not a teaser to a future book that you have no idea when you'll be releasing.

This was short, like four chapters short. Most of the other stories in this

I’ve been infatuated with Micah Stewart from the very first time I laid eyes on him.

The only problem is he doesn’t know I’m gay.

Nobody does.

It’s my biggest secret. Until a school field trip forces us together for a week.

My Hollywood Hart from Haley Jenner
Holy Shitballs these two can pack a punch with only a bite sized treat. When I saw who this was about I was a giddy hot mess! This is the kind of novella that tells an entire story. An entire filthy, dirty, swoonworthy story. I am desperate for more of these two and am not above begging. All the "Principesa" stars for this tasty morsel!!!

Review for My Hollywood Hart by Haley Jenner:
Gah what a perfect little tease of a story that was. Everything is crossed that my favourite powerhouse duo expand on it at some point as would love to see more of this couple and the world's they just crossed. Gah. Over way too quick.

Gave 5 stars for the characters alone, but be warned, you will be left like a junkie wanting a fix but in the best way

Gah!! Forced proximity is such a fun trope to write and I loved writing this short Storm MC story for the Love In Lockdown anthology!!

“You were always my kryptonite, Chelsea, and we both know where that got me. Being forced into this kind of proximity with you is fucking dangerous.”

Meet Gunnar & Chelsea

The biker & the politician's daughter.
Sworn enemies.
One night will change everything.

Read only Angel of Tears by L A Cotton and Locke by Tracy Lorraine.

Both were fun, steamy quick reads. AoT was a bit more emotional and the connection these two characters had was amazing. I hope they'll get their own book one day.

So this one i got and only read few authors since those are the ones I know of. If you wanna read all the stories go right ahead but my rating is for just those ones not the whole bundle.

Angel Of Tears by L.A. Cotton is an EPIC read that will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ARISTOCRACY!!!

- BAD/GOOD NEIGHBOR by Ker Dukey (5 stars)
This just a taste of what Is to come. A spicy MC short that is part of the Love in Lockdown Anthology for charity. You know if it’s a Dukey book it’s gonna be a good one! Jameson is in a very troubling situation which is when he first meets Melanie Monroe. Who knew they would end up being neighbors! This also introduces us to Animal. His book is coming up in June as part of the Royal Bastards MC. All in all, I enjoyed this short MC story. Told in dual PO

I totally bought this for the M/M story Locking Him Down by Marley Valentine. I really enjoyed this short. Oliver has been keeping secrets from everyone, but he cannot hide from himself that he has a fascination with one certain guy. Micah is out and not afraid to be who he is. He is not sure why Oliver stares at him in odd ways or what he might have done to make him dislike him. But now that they will be spending a week in a dorm room together, it's probably time to come clean.

Bad/Good Neighbour - Ker Dukey

Sexy rough biker and sweet innocent doctor. Sign me up!

Jamieson first meets Monroe when he’s taken to her ER for a gunshot wound. From the minute he sees her, he wants her.

He just so happens to move next door to her and like a knight in shining armour, saves her during a storm one night and their fate is sealed. Leading the way for some hot and steamy lockdown scenes!

Jamieson is protective, has humour and is definitely all alpha and I need to more of their story.

Angel of Tears // A Verona Legacy Short Story

Matteo is one of my favourites from the Verona Legacy so I’m really happy I got to see more of him! He’s such a great character, and here it’s proved that he has a heart of gold. He’s a gentleman and I just love everything about him. Him and Caitlin had this spark from the start so it was a cute short story to read, although I really secretly hope that we’ll get more of him, and that him and C

Okay. How the hell did these ladies pack a full engrossing story in a short little novella? It's FANTASTIC! Once I learned who this story was about I. Was. Squealing! No worries though--it can absolutely be read as a standalone! This story has all the elements of a juicy heartfelt book. Incredible witty banter between characters.

Five Stars for Everyone!

What a great anthology to read during this time in our world. Fourteen authors come together to create love during lockdown. I love anthologies because they always introduce me to new authors and even gives me a glimpse of when authors I’ve read before write new tropes!

Love in Lockdown has everything from arranged marriages, friends to lovers, MC, age gap/reverse age gap, second chance, mafia, and MM. There is something for everyone. Every author did a fantastic job at

Kudos to these amazing authors for sharing their work in a way that benefits our very chaotic world right now.

There are tons of gems in this. Was very excited to see Matteo, a secondary character from the new Prince of Hearts by LA Cotton- getting a 5 star short story about his connection with Caitlin and his big, beautiful heart.

Haley Jenner brings us a full on treat with the super streamy read, and Marley Valentine delivers an emotionally intimate MM short. We also get some MC fun from Ker Duk

Marley Valentine's "Locking Him Down" is wonderful New Adult romance, and THE highlight for me among so many great stories.

Oliver and Micah!!!!! FLOVE their origin story. Opposites attract finding new love and leaving the whole world open for possibilities. Marley Valentine has another HUGE hit in MM romance on her hands with "Locking Him Down"

"Our mouths move without an expiration date, languidly teasing and tasting, promising one another of all the good things left to come." That's top notch

Review for Good Bad Neighbour by Ker Dukey

This may have been a shorter read but it wasn't short of content that was for sure. I do love an MC story and this has the potential to be right up there in my favourites. With this being part of Love in Lockdown anthology, I do hope there is a continuation of Jameson and Melanie Monroe's story as I feel their journey was just the beginning and I would really love to read more of their story.

At a time where I find myself reading more than I ever have, I was happy to see this anthology released. I was especially happy to see Lone Star Heat by Kimberly Knight included as a part of this anthology. As a sports fanatic and Oklahoma girl (that part will make sense once you read it), I really enjoyed this story. Hot baseball players with a side of (slightly) forbidden lust and a promise of more had my nose buried in this short story from the second I started reading it. I was left wanting ...more

***4 Stars***

I gotta say, for a short story this baby packed a punch and definitely got me all kinds of interested in Animal from the Royal Bastards MC. But as for Grim and Monroe, I gotta say I really liked these two. The examples of what made these two tick were so well done that you could feel the compassion and loyalty they both have ingrained in them. The way they meet was most definitely not the norm, but considering the world this short is se
