This review is focused on Falling for My Fling by Dakota Davies - 3.5 stars.

Adventure Girl

I liked Caleb and Lori's introduction and I am looking forward to seeing where things go. They each listen and support each other in ways no-one else ever has. They are sweet and steamy together.

Even though this wasn't my favorite story from Davies, I enjoyed it all the same. The ending (really it's more of a cliffhanger as this is a prequel) was a bit predictable but how it plays out in the next book will

Happily Ever After will give you a warm happy feeling no matter the genre of romance you like. I read Don’t Worry, I Still Hate You by Marie Skye, and I really enjoyed it once I got into it, at first, I did feel a little lost and almost like this was the second part of a story, and I missed the first, but then once I got into the story, I just simply fell for Perrie and Ash and their crazy journey to each other in the most backwards forwards roundabout manner. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into ...more

My Twist of Fortune is the first book in the new The Green Family series. This sweet and heartfelt second chance story gives the reader a glimpse into the Greene family history.

I received an arc for My Twist of Fortune. It was so good! I'm so excited to start the Greene family. I loved seeing seeing Dori and Ethel again. Hank is so sweet. I really love him. Marla really called to me. I was in her situation and I could understand her pain. I just hope I might find a Hank one day. Great start to the new series! Can't wait for the next book! ...more

I read the first in the series. I enjoyed reading about this summer fling or will it be more? It’s her first time and he has had many flings. They agree that this is all it will be. At the end of the summer, they will both go off to college in different states. Takes place in the beautiful mountains with lots of great water sports. Of course, now I can’t wait to read the next part.

No matter what you love - enemies to lovers, second chance romance, a forbidden tale, vacation fling, opposites attract, comedy, or contemporary romance - every story in this limited edition boxed set delivers a satisfying ending.

My favorite was “FALLING FOR MY FLING” by Dakota Davies. Their teaser story is a prequel to lead the reader in to Caleb and Lori's full story. The introduction will let the reader meet the characters and get to know them and their expectations, drawing out interest so

My Twist of Fortune (The Greene Family #0.5) By Piper Rayne

BLURB:

Two aching hearts. A meddling small town. A second chance.

It’s not a new story. Wife finds out husband’s been cheating on her and she packs up her four kids and heads back to her hometown, Sunrise Bay, Alaska.

Yeah, not a fresh start, but thousands of miles away from my ex will do just fine.

I’m prepared for the cold weather, the early snowfalls, and dark days and nights. What I’m not prepared for is coming face to face with my ex’s

I have only read Forever Mine by Joanne Dannon and Faith Summers in this boxset, and my review is for this novella only. Facing an awkward situation, Ivy comes to the conclusion that her only solution is to ask Leo Haller to accompany her to her best friend's wedding as her plus one. Caught between a rock and a hard place, Ivy has to push down her feeling for Leo whilst at the same time having to face her obnoxious ex. Although they have been friends for many years, neither Leo nor Ivy have allo ...more

What a collection of the most amazing authors ou there! I love every single story in it.

But letsntalk about one story in particular: My Twist of Fortune by Piper Rayne!
This story was the best way to introduce a new series! I loved Hank and Marla's story, it was wonderfully written. I was cheering for them throughout the whole book. And even tho I knew they would end up together, I was so under distress because of those teenage boys and their behavior.

Review of Rescuing Royce.

Another enjoyable book from this author. Both Royce and Amber were written as likable characters that you want together from the start of this book. I liked that the author alluded to Royce’s past “player” dating, but that we didn’t have to see it present day.

One negative was everyone pointing out that Royce was a player and out of her league. Especially crappy when it is a character that was a big player previously. Also, I really didn’t like Reese through most of this

My Twist of Fortune by Piper Rayne
After some 20 years, Marla is back at her parents’ house in Sunrise Bay, Alaska. Difference is she’s now divorced, has 4 children and doesn’t have the means to get her own place.
Then there’s Hank Greene, her HS friend and former husband’s cousin/rival. He’s now a widower with children of his own.
From the outside this book might seem a reboot of the Brady Bunch, but it’s just perfect to start the Greene Family series. I loved reading about Ethel’s family and how

Rescuing Royce

I really enjoy this series but other than a few mentions of previous events it really isn’t necessary for you to have read the previous novels before this one, though it would enhance your enjoyment.

Royce is a love em and leave em type who has feelings for Amber who is part of the group he hangs out with, and good friends with his twin sister. Because of that both feel they can’t do anything with their feelings. The story takes you through the dance around, to a tense event that

My Twist of Fortune

I'm excited that we're headed back to Alaska for the start of Piper Rayne's Greene Family series! After getting a glimpse of them at the end of the Bailey's series I was really excited to dig into who this family is and what makes them tick.

Marla and Hank are both single following her divorce and the tragic death of his wife and they are both trying their best to raise their kids in the small town of Sunrise Bay. Marla is putting the pieces of her life back together after movi

I read the Piper Rayne novella My Twist of Fortune that was in this collection. I love the writing duo Piper Rayne, they are always writing such great stories! This novella is the kick off to their new upcoming series with the Greene Family. The main characters are Marla who is divorced and Hank who is a widow, both with children of their own. Marla and Hank were friends before and this novella shows that friendship growing into something more. I can't wait to read more about this family in this ...more

Good short romance
3.5
I have read Debra elise's story, but not all of the others in this anthology. It’s a well written, short story that contains a bit of suspense but is also romantic and hot with endearing characters.
Royce is attracted to Amber, his sister’s best friend, because of this friendship, a kind of prohibition is set. Yet Amber is also attracted to him and when he has to intervene to save her, all their hesitations are reset.

Rescuing Royce review

I really enjoyed this story. Royce had been warned to not sleep with Amber as she was his sister's friend. He was something of a womanizer - at least until he saw Amber for the first time. Then he had to find a way to not have his sister kill him. Amber felt the same way about him and it was sweet how they got their HEA.. A little drama, great friends and some hot sex. Good story

I've read Forever Mine by Joanne Dannon and Faith Summers, and if the other books are just as good, then this is a great set! Ivy and Leo have crushed on each other for years, but he's her younger brother's best friend, so neither wanted to make a move and risk their relationship. However, when Ivy is invited to a wedding and knows her nasty ex will be there, she can't face going alone. She builds the courage to invite Leo as her plus one, and the sparks fly. But not everyone is a fan of their f ...more

This review is for Marie Skye's writing "Don't Worry, I Still Hate You."

Marie Skye's contribution to this anthology is her piece "Don't Worry I still Hate You." If you are hesitant about trying an anthology "Don't Worry" you will love it! The writing will keep you interested from start to end with intriguing characters in an entertaining story. This likely will not be the last story you read of Skye's as she is a favorite author!

Keep It Together by Sophia Henry has two athletes which I loved as they both know what it takes to make it in the industry. But their similarities also cause some problems that kept me on edge. It's sweet and sexy and exciting.

A little forbidden romance with some suspense rounds out this story. I liked Amber and Royce and the dynamics of not just them but the group as well. Even though it's a short story, it takes you on a little action-packed journey that has Amber

Review of My Twist of Fortune by Piper Rayne

This is a fab origin novella for the new series. I love the older main characters in their 40s and the introduction to all (10!) of their children.

There's a history between Marla and Hank, and they found their way to each other after each having gone through heartbreak and hard times as single parents.

Love this and can't wait to read the kids' stories!!

She's prepared with the essentials but the only problem is her date abandons her for another girl. When another prospect appears she's determined to guard her heart and keep it simple and one night.

This review was for story of Rescuing Royce by Debra Elise.

Royce and Amber had so much chemistry together. I loved the dual POVs that showed their feelings and thoughts of each other as this really helped round out this novella. The novel had steam, some action and a whole lot of friendship and love.

This review is for Forever Mine by Joanne Dannon.
Ivy has made a successful career in an area she loves. She has been treated poorly by her previous boyfriend and has not dated in a long time. The one person who she loves doesn’t know. This all changes as we see how Leo and Ivy overcome the obstacles.

I am reviewing Dakota Davies "Falling for my Fling". I thought it was a short story but looked like it was just a prequel...the cliffhanger ending makes me curious about what's to come for Caleb and Lori. I hope Dakota Davies doesn't take long to give us the rest of their story. I enjoyed it.

This is a really good, quick story. Ivy and Leo have both lived each other from afar for 15 years but one thing or another has kept them from each other. They will finally have their chance to see where their priorities truly lie.
