Though I actually really did enjoy all of these stories, and intend on reading them all again, I am only going to include reviews for a couple of my favorites. But please keep in mind these were all very well done. Not only were there few grammar and spelling errors but there were also rich characters and very interesting back stories and plots considering how short each story is.
The Hottest One Night Stand by Renee Jones
Who doesn't want a hot one night stand?! Especially with the sensual and exotic male character that Renee introduces to us in the bar at the beginning of the story. Our heroine hasn't had very good luck. She finds out that her husband had been cheating on her for quite some time and uses the excuse that she basically sucks in bed. She sees good lookin' in a bar and is immediately attracted to him but can't talk to him because of the self-consciousness her ex so lovingly left her with. When she drives out to a motel to stay the night the innkeeper tells her there are no rooms for the night and while waiting in her car trying to figure out what to do and how to dry off from the torrential downpour going on outside, our mysterious hunk knocks on her window and unceremoniously offers her a place to stay for the night since she's soaked. Of course a place for the night leads to some fabulous and erotic sex! She steps out of her comfort zones with this total stranger with the idea she'll never see him again. That being said, I loved how this story ended and how it turned out they both had way more in common than either of them would've thought. Great story!
A Familiar Kind of Magic by Sylvia Day
I'm usually not a fantasy fan so the fact that this story revolved around warlocks and people that can change into animals should've turned me off rather than on! I loved these characters. They were both so strong and independent and absolutely determined to get what they wanted. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them both squirm as they tried to each have the upper hand on the other. What I really liked about this is that to the other person they seem to be in perfect control and have it all together but when you see it from their POV you actually see they are barely holding together and ready to unravel. Neither one of them realize how much they affect the other one until the end of the story when life changing decisions are made in order to protect the undeniable bond they have with one another. On an erotica level this one was absolutely my favorite. The sex between these two was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G but I guess that would happen when you're purposely trying to seduce each other into submission. Still it was very steamy and I liked how their personalities were really reflected by the fantastical story Day came up with. The warlock shows great power and dominance but really wants to be with someone that wants what he can offer and allows him to care for them. While our feline friend is sassy, clever and independent but really desires to be loved and taken care of as well. Not by any means a cheesy romance. It's very sexual and erotic and you get to throw in a little rebellion and vengeance too. My kind of story!
I really wanted to be able to review all of these because I really have nothing but gushing comments for all of them. These were the perfect length and the plots were a perfect mix for me. There was more storyline than a lot of erotica but not too much as to get lost in a cliche harlequin romance.
Would NOT recommend if you have a problem with: sex with strangers, varying types of toys, virtual sex, domination/submission.
Lover's Locket by Cathryn Fox - I really enjoyed this story and I felt it was pretty well developed but the ending felt a little rushed and not entirely satisfying for me.
Kili's Ice Man by Delilah Devlin - I really loved the premise of this futuristic romance and it was packed full of spice, but I was a little confused with how things ended but that just could have been me, it was still a good little story.
The Hottest One Night Stand by Lisa Renee Jones - This one was so-so for me, nothing too spectacular and it seemed to drag on a little bit with the reader being trapped inside the heroine's mind and her never ending litany of how awful her ex-husband had been. We get it no need for repetition. Still had a good hero though, so that made up for it somewhat.
A Familiar Kind of Magic by Sylvia Day - This was a very hot read and Sylvia Day created a very interesting world I wouldn't mind exploring more. The feminist in me cringed a few times with the whole one must control/dominate the other aspect but the hero's sensitively made up for it. Great steamy read, and great start to a new series if she wanted to take it in that direction (maybe she already has I'll have to check).
Tempting Grace by Sasha White - I really wasn't a fan of this one, it was a different story and I can appreciate that but I just didn't feel like this a type of story that could be tackled appropriately in a short novella format. Also I had the slight issue of the hero's father being a priest. I could be totally wrong but aren't priests celibate? It never said he was Catholic but referring to him as the priest and father sort of pulled me out of the story.
Quick Silver by Vivi Anna - Interesting story and characters, but I would have loved to have seen them more developed and maybe it's just me but the character of Vance came across as kind of feminine which is fine, but I was sort of questioning his sexuality even when he was getting hot and heavy with Sangria. Either that or the author had a hard time writing authentic dialogue for a man. Not sure which but still an okay read overall.
If you're look for a cheap read with a wide variety I would definitely recommend checking out this collection.
