HASH(0x8bb00d2c) out of 5 stars Perfect reading for anywhere! 9 Jun. 2004
By Laurie - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was a fun book with feel-good novellas by some great authors. Lori Foster's Some Like It Hot has Dr. Cary Rupert trying to prove to Nora Chilton that he is the perfect man for her. Cary is very convincing to the reluctant widow Nora of how the two of them are perfect for each other. There's no way she could resist. In One Wilde Weekend, Janelle Denison brings us Alex Wilde, of the infamous Wilde family, who wants a permanent commitment from girlfriend Dana Reed. A hot read in which Alex is very creative in proving his love to Dana. Blue Crush by Erin McCarthy has a topless Dr. Sara Davis saved by lifeguard Kyle Vanderhoff. The steam rises quickly between these two. MaryJanice Davidson's contribution is My Thief, wherein Robin Filkins and responsible accountant John Crusher are brought together under unusual circumstances and with lots of humor; in the process they fall in love. This was my first story by Ms. Davidson, but it won't be my last. Another first for me was author Kayla Perrin whose Hot and Bothered has Trey Arnold trying to save his marriage to estranged wife Jenna Maxwell. Jenna is hesitant to try again with Trey, but he is very willing to please! Very well done. Morgan Leigh completes the book with Murphy's Law. Kat Murphy is in love with her boss, Sam Parrish, and quits her job after deciding that he will never get over his deceased wife. Sam will do whatever it takes to prove to Kat that he wants her in his life permanently. A heartwarming story. This was a very enjoyable book by some of my favorite authors and two that were new to me. My only complaint would be that the stories weren't long enough - I wasn't ready for any of them to end. Great reading for the beach or anywhere - wonderful job, ladies!

HASH(0x89f2ee10) out of 5 stars Perfect for the beach indeed! 16 July 2004
By CoffeeGurl - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for the beach indeed! I was looking for the perfect no-fuss book with some soft erotica to take with me for a sunbathing session, and this one satisfied me to no end (so to speak). I have read almost every Bad Boy offering, so I knew what to expect. I loved it! My favorite stories are the ones by Janelle Denison, MaryJanice Davidson and Erin McCarthy. Janice Denison's One Wilde Weekend has the yummiest scenes in the book. Even though the whole sexual escapade inside an airplane bathroom thing has been done numerous times before, the aforementioned scene is nevertheless hot. Denison's descriptions are quite palpable. And I love the fact that Dana Reed, the novella's heroine, is strong and independent, albeit vulnerable about trusting Alex Wilde with her heart. The aforementioned dilemma is one that Denison has written about many times before, but I loved the way she's addressed it this time. My second favorite is MaryJanice Davidson's My Thief. This story is full of Davidson's signature bantering and low-brow humor. The story isn't as creative as her other stuff, but it's nonetheless fun. The conclusion is a bit abrupt though. Erin McCarthy's Blue Crush and Kayla Perrin's Hot and Bothered sizzled in their own right, as had Morgan Leigh's Murphy's Law. The only disappointment here is Lori Foster's Some Like it Hot. This story is a revised version of every other Foster offering. The story isn't bad -- just too similar to her other stuff. You read one Lori Foster book or story and you've read them all. All in all, this is a great beach read. The title says it all. So be sure to take this gem with you on your next visit to the beach...

HASH(0x89e4da14) out of 5 stars It really is Perfect for the Beach or anywhere else... 15 July 2004
By Lynda - Published on
Format: Paperback
A page turner from start to finish~~
Lori Foster brings us the story of Cary Rupert in Some Like it Hot. It sure is a hot story, and just they way we like it. Cary has met his match in Nora and watching the sparks fly is just pure fun.
Janelle Denison makes flying so much more fun in One Wilde Weekend. Alex Wilde must convince his girlfriend Dana that he wants more than one wilde weekend, he wants a lifetime of them. Those Wilde men really tug on your heart.
Blue Crush by Erin McCarthy starts with something you hope never happens to you, losing your top in the ocean. But hey if it ends the way it does for Sara, ladies let them tops fly. Being "rescued" by Kyle the lifeguard certainly turns the day around.
Mary Janice Davidson brings her wit and style to My Thief. Fast thinking and even faster action makes this tale exciting from start to finish.
Hot & Bothered perfectly describes the story by Kayla Perrin. There is plenty of steam to heat you up in this story so you better turn up the a/c.
Morgan Leigh takes us to the beach with Murphy's Law. We met Kat & Sam in Wildest Dreams and it was worth waiting for their story.
When the summer gets busy I just love reading these short stories and I think you will also.

HASH(0x89eeb2ac) out of 5 stars A perfect collection of romance stories! 23 May 2004
By Sara - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of six short stories by different authors. Before reading this book, my first thought was that the short length of each story would disappoint me. Boy, was I wrong! I loved each and every one of these stories. Some of them made me laugh out loud, like Erin McCarthy's BLUE CRUSH, which is one of my favorites in this anthology. Other stories, like Lori Foster's SOME LIKE IT HOT, had the perfect mix of sensual love scenes, emotions and very likable characters. Mary Janice Davidson's story, MY THEIF, had her trademark quirky, offbeat characters that you can't help but fall in love with. Kayla Perrin's story, HOT AND BOTHERED was a wonderfully heartwarming story that reunited two characters that had never stopped loving each other. Janelle Denison's story, ONE WILDE WEEKEND, adds new meaning to the mile-high club! What a hot and sensual story with wonderful characters. I highly recommend reading Morgan Leigh's story, MURPHY'S LAW. I fell in love with the hero from this story.
There is something for everyone in this anthology. It would be hard for me to pick just one favorite out of all six stories, but I guarantee you won't be disappointed with this collection of fun, steamy and heartwarming love stories that are all perfect!

HASH(0x89f92a44) out of 5 stars Perfect for the Beach, and then some! 9 Jun. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Some Like It Hot" were scorching. I thought Nora was just plain adorable, and who wouldn't want a sexy guy like Cary pursuing her?! I enjoyed how the hero's friends got involved when feelings were revealed. It adds a wonderful mixture of humor to an intense romance. Loved it!

Janelle Denison's "Wilde Weekend" was a wonderful, refreshing story in that the heroine was a bit older and it was already an established romance. I really liked how Janelle didn't create unnecessary, lame conflict but rather had the h/h deal with their feelings upfront, which made it more rewarding. Plus, it was another story about those sexy Wilde men, and who doesn't enjoy them?!

If ever I'm at the beach and suffer from a similar dilemma, I hope that a hottie lifeguard like Kyle is there to rescue me! ;) Very hot, and Sara was a very lucky woman. Plus, smart is very sexy. "Blue Crush" was a decadent, wonderful treat, and perfect for the beach.

"My Thief" was funny and romantic and charming - and of course hot! - and reinforces my admiration of Mary Janice Davidson's writing. Robin was a firecracker, and Johnny Crusher was irresistible from their first encounter. And I can't forget to mention Uncle Rich - what a hoot!

"Hot and Bothered" is the first story I've read by Kayla Perrin, but it won't be my last. I really liked Trey from the first moment I "met" him, and I thought Jenna was a sensitive, lovely woman with a passionate heart that truly belonged to Trey. Their story was sexy and sweet, and I breathed a sigh of happiness at their HEA. I hope Ruby gets her own story!

I forgot how much I wanted to read about Kat & Sam, secondary characters from your Wild Dreams anthology, until I started reading their story. Wow, Sam was devastating (in a sexy, intense way, of course), and I felt for Kat as a caring woman who didn't want to cause the man she loved emotional pain. "Murphy's Law" was a little bittersweet, but that enhanced their romance, and I was eagerly anticipating the moment they would finally give into their feelings. It was well worth it.

I loved this anthology, and each story was a gem.
