Sizzle's Emily Tate is the perfect M&B heroine: no-nonsense, savvy, razor-tongued and she doesn't suffer fools gladly. Put under Richard's `control,' the sexual tension becomes almost palpable and you'll read on eagerly for the outcome. Most readers will enjoy Emily and Jane's relationship, possibly recognizing one of their own friendships through it, but the duo certainly adds a comical edge to this saucy story.
Too Fast to Fall was my favourite in this small compilation. The combination of Nate, his official-ness and his soft spot for Jenny had me before I could even read "Licence and registration please." I gasped, laughed and swooned my way through this read, even blushing at the extremely erotic intimate scenes, which, in my mind, was just the cherry on the cake.
Alone With You started with a bang (quite literally!) and then proceeded to slow right down. This change of pace takes nothing away from the story, it only enhances the tension as Darcy and Jake's situation reaches a tipping point, and you can't wait to see which way they fall. The crux is thoroughly satisfying and you'll be sad to read the last word in this collection.

Sizzle was just bad! I really don't like outdated contemporary romances the technology becomes an issue and it takes away from the book. She goes to his place to watch a VCR tape and his VCR is in the bedroom. It may have worked 15 years ago but now. The guy was sexist and cheesy. I am very proud of myself for completing it.
Too fast to Fall - Nate and Jenny have a great story. I love the stud farm and was excited for Jenny and Nate. I think they are perfect together. She is a little wild and he is the knight and shinning armor. He was willing to listen to her with an open mind.
Alone with you- I liked Darcy and Jakes story. It was a great follow-up novella for Shannon Stacey's Undeniably yours that I just finished. I would've liked to know how Jake and Kevin Kowalski met to become business partners. It was a fun quick read. I agree that I wanted to go to Jasper's and order a Big Ass Steak!
Headliner Jennifer Cruise's Sizzle is the only one of the three short steamy Valentine romances that didn't work for me. It did deliver on the sizzle, but I really did not like the leading man, finance guy Richard, who orders the leading lady, marketing wiz Emily, around and doesn't listen to her at all in or out of the bedroom - this guy would be a nightmare boyfriend or husband and I just couldn't believe her attempt to retrain him was going to have any lasting effect.
I really enjoyed Victoria Dahl's Too Fast to Fall with it's fast explosive connection between Deputy Nate Hernadez and Jenny who just can't go slow. I liked seeing the straight and narrow Nate get discombobulated by his lady, and Jenny - even with her need for spe3d and tendency to turn tail and run - was really a sweetie.
My favorite of the bunch was Shannon Stacey's Alone with you. I loved both of the leads. Jake is a really nice guy (who learns the values of having a sharpie handy) and I likde that after the quick connection that feels so right between him and Darcy, circumstances give them a chance to get to know each other and become true partners, so this was a HEA that I really believed.
