MELTDOWN by Shannon McKenna
Jane Duvall is a great headhunter and she's determined to snag her next client even if it means stealing him away from hotel CEO, Michael "Mac" Mcnamara. Mac plans to find out what Jane's really up to even if that means he has to seduce it out of her.

This story started of well but pretty soon turned into absolute trash. Mac was such a bully that it was uncomfortable to read. I like an alpha male as much as the next girl but Mac's treatment of Jane was emotionally abusive and I was horrified that anyone would class this as romance. Dreadful.

EXPOSED by Donna Kauffman
All Delilah Hudson wants is to get home for Christmas - too bad she's stranded on a train in the middle of a blizzard. As soon as photographer, Austin Morgan, spies Delilah he's interested in capturing her in more than just a shot. Perhaps they can heat up the holidays together.

This was a fairly bland story with characters I didn't empathise with, identify with or particularly care for. The sex within five minutes of meeting each other seemed seedy rather than sexy and the thought of a stranger taking naked pictures of me gave me the creeps rather than turned me on!

PURE GINGER by E.C. Sheedy
Ginger Cameron is fed up with being judged solely on her looks. So she decides to change her look to something a little more dowdy. Cal Beaumann needs to hire Ginger to do PR work but he doesn't believe that this girl is as straight laced as she appears. So he sets out to uncover her secrets one by one.

Easily the best story of this anthology, I still couldn't identify much with Ginger. It was all a bit ridiculous and the silly conflict at the end of the story was a bit high school for my tastes. Still the best but still not so great.

Oh The Bad Boys Are Back 11 April 2004
By Judy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bad Boys Next Exit brings together three steamy stories.
Shannon McKenna's Meltdown has headhunter Jane Duvall having a meeting with the general manager of the Crowne Royale Group of hotels posing as a travel writer. But the GM is called away and instead she meets the CEO Michael "Mac" McNamara. Their attraction is explosive and Jane decides to indulge in a fantasy with Mac. Mac cannot get Jane out of his mind after their initial fiery meeting. They agree to meet again and it's a night of passion and betrayals. Shannon McKenna writes another highly erotic story. Jane and Mac will be remembered for their fire, passion and heart.
Exposed by Donna Kauffman has two strangers meeting on a train. Delilah Hudson was on vacation taking pictures as she travels. Del meets fellow photographer Austin Morgan. Austin is returning home after his abusive fathers death. Del and Austin connect on so many levels. Their passion is all consuming but can they make it past the train ride. Ms. Kauffman's story is so titillating, a very enjoyable read.
Pure Ginger by E.C. Sheedy has Ginger Cameron trying to change her image. Gone are the sexy outfits, over the top ways and most of all drop dead gorgeous men. This proves to be a problem when for her PR firm she meets Cal Beaumann, who wants to hire Ginger. Cal is thrown by this frumpy looking woman. Ginger is not what he envisioned helping him launch his new cinema. But Cal sees beneath Gingers tone down look to see the real woman inside. Cal and Ginger have a connection that leaps off the page.
Bad Boys Next Exit is a great addition to the Bad Boys stories.

McKenna's tale gives the drive 4 May 2004
By Desmond Chan - Published on
Format: Paperback
While the Bad Boys anthologies have managed to send the romantics onto the highway of escapism, the route is getting a tad too formulaic and predictable so much so that we have trouble inkling the works to the authors. Haven't they done this story in the last book? Bad Boys Next Exit clearly follows the safe path that have garnered predecessors the popularity. The best out of the three tale clearly belongs to Shannon McKenna's Meltdown where headhunter Jane Duvall experiences raw passion with hotelier Mac McNamara when she poses incognito to poach his management staff. The usual routine of boy meets girl gets revitalized by McKenna's consummate writing and luscious emotions manifested in the two textured characters who gets caught up in a whirlwind affair. Donna Kauffman's Exposed tells of two strangers' romantic interlude in a train while E.C Sheedy offers plenty of sass in redhead and PR specialist Ginger Cameron, who wants to be taken serious by ex-soap opera hunk Cal Beaumann enough to clinch the deal to promote his cinema. McKenna's gem of a tale gives this anthology the much needed momentum and drive to prevent it from heading towards deadening predictability.

Meltdown an absolute scorcher! 5 April 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because Shannon McKenna was part of the anthology. I was not disappointed. This story is a new favorite of mine! Jane Duvall is a corporate headhunter who tries to steal an employee from Michael McNamara's hotel. They are attracted to each other, but Jane has trouble letting down her guard and Michael also has issues with being vulnerable. The characters are intense, with an alpha male hero who knows what he wants and a shy heroine who feels he won't want the real her. The sex scenes almost melted my eyelashes! Definitely read this one!
Unfortunately, I was disappointed after that. "Meltdown" was 130 pages and I would have preferred it to be a stand-alone book. "Exposed" by Donna Kauffman was approximately 90 pages, not enough time to get into the characters. It's about two people stranded on a train during Christmas. The mutual attraction causes them to make for the sleeper car to explore the attraction. There was a little too much internal dialogue and the sex scenes were bland compared to "Meltdown".
The last story, "Pure Ginger" by E.C. Sheedy, was even shorter at 80 pages. Ginger Cameron is a woman with a history of falling for bad men. She gives herself a dowdy makeover and resolves to be celibate for the next 2 years. Enter Cal Beaumann, an owner of a new movie theater who hires Ginger to do the PR. At first, reluctant to hire Ginger because of her marmish appearance, he becomes intrigued with the woman behind the facade. He pursues her and she stuggles with wanting him and wanting to keep her resolution. The couple definitely threw off sparks and had chemistry. I would have enjoyed it more if the story were longer.
I think it would have been better if "Meltdown" was last. Unfortunately, it was the best and a hard act to follow.

Another Bad Boys title..... 4 April 2004
By destiny morna - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Bad Boys series by Brava is one of my favorites. They feature the best authors and the hottest stories and this one is no exception.
1. Meltdown by Shannon Mckenna is about headhunter Jane Duvall. She pretends to be a magazine writer to infiltrate a hotel and possibly steal away one of their executives. During her masquerade, she meets CEO Mac McNamara and they have instant chemistry that ignites during her tour of the hotel's penthouse. But Mac knows that she is lying and given his own history with women, Mac doesn't know if he can trust her.
2. Exposed by Donna Kauffman is about Delilah Hudson who is stranded on a train with Austin. Luckily, they are both photographers and have more than that in common. Soon Delilah and Austin are happily ensconced in his private sleeping car. Austin knows that Delilah is someone special and wants to keep her with him, even after the train starts up.
3. Pure Ginger is by EC Sheedy. Ginger is the head of a publicity business and she is all business. Due to some past relationship mistakes, she has sworn off men and has reinvented herself to be a plain, serious businesswoman. But Cal Beaumann is considering hiring her to promote his business and wants a more sexy image and knows that Ginger is just the women for him.
All three books were good stories with great couples. Shannon Mckenna's story was by far the best had more likeable characters and they had more chemistry. Bad boys Next Exit wasn't as good as the previous books in this series, but a solid effort for fans of the Bad Boys books.

I Love This Series!!!! 23 April 2004
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great series published by Brava and so far none of them have let me down.
This is the first in which my favorite Ms. Foster does not have a short story included. Despite this this book is well worth reading. I'm not going to go into great detail on the sysnopsis of each story since that has already been done and done well at that. In any event Ms. McKenna's (who is on my automatic buying list) short story was my favorite and I can only hope has plans with will include the rest of Mac's family (hint, hint...) sooner rather than later. With that said I must go on record that none of the stories in this anthology are weak. All of them are real strong, with great characters (yummy alpha male heros, not taking any sass heroines!) and fun storylines. And they are all three steamy in their own right. For a fast but fun read you can't go wrong with any of the "Bad Boy" series!!!
