5* for the cause,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pink Shades of Words (Kindle Edition)
Overall rating of the all the stories: 3/5 stars.
I bought this anthology purely because I wanted to read Jessica Sorensen's short story. And seeing as the proceeds are going to such a good cause, I thought it would be well worth the money. I hadn't previously tried any of the other authors work, so it was interesting to get a taste for some different works.
Of the 17 short stories in this anthology, I read 13 of them, DNF'd 2, didn't read 1 because of the authors warning about content (I knew I wouldn't enjoy it, so I really appricated the warning), and 1 I didn't read because it's the fifth in a series, and I've not read the previous ones, so I skipped it.
The stand out stories for me:
Ruby and Finn by Maggi Myers. Very short, a snippet for a full book coming out later in the year, titled The Legend of Ruby and Finn. I really want to read the full book and see what happens!
A Bend in the Road by Tess Oliver. I really liked the characters in this one, and the story. It felt a little rushed in the second half, but I still really enjoyed it and would have liked more.
Meeting Sin by Emily Snow. A snippet of 'Wrecking Me' Savor Us vol. 2 which releases in the summer. I really enjoyed this short, and I've already bought book 1 of this series to read, but I'm more excited to read the full story with these characters at the center.
Seduction and Temptation by Jessica Sorensen. Sins 0.5. I really enjoyed this prequel. The full book is due out in the Summer and I'm really looking forward to discovering what happens to the characters from this dark beginning.
Overall, I think this was worth buying, even if I didn't like half the stories. It's got a bit of everything. While romance may be the focus of each story, they're all very different, with some very different tastes catered for. So hopefully any romance reader will enjoy at least one story in this, and with the money going to a good cause, why wouldn't you buy it?
