Hotter
Hockey Holidays - RJ Scott,Kat Mizera,Susan Scott Shelley,Melody Heck Gatto,Jennifer Lazaris,Jaymee Jacobs,Jean Joachim,Melanie Ting,Toni Aleo,Stephanie Kay,Lily Harlem,Kate Willoughby,Lisa B. Kamps,Jami Davenport,Stephanie Julian,Shannon Stacey

This 18 book collection by some of the most amazing authors was such a treat to read!  I loved the humor, heat, and you betcha - even the hockey that was represented in each story.  I have 2 book reviews that I am sharing from this collection for you below.

 

A Second Shot by Shannon Stacey:

 

Heartwarming and truly charming, this short and sweet story has us on our toes as we read about a couple who should be together, but have been apart.  Great read of sexy and fun. 

 

A Wolfe Brothers Christmas by Jami Davenport:

 

 

Little bit of suspense mixed in with a sweet holiday story that brings a lot of sexy charm to the table.  If you loved her men in their previous stories - you are going to be glad you grabbed this little bit of heaven.  I do recommend that you read the Game On In Seattle series first, however, to avoid spoilers.  Believe me this is worth it!  

 

Each short story included gives a unique and truly hockey flavored look at romance.  What I enjoyed most was that it gave me a chance to relax and enjoy love in my favorite sport.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Cold Nights, Hot Bodies by Lily Harlem Free!
BY Harlem, Lily ( Author ) [{ Cold Nights, Hot Bodies By Harlem, Lily ( Author ) Jun - 05- 2014 ( Paperback ) } ] - Lily Harlem

All my life I’ve been the quiet bookworm, the office mouse. It hasn’t bothered me. Immersing myself in erotic novels has kept me wriggling on the edge of my seat at work and firmly entrenched in my own fantasy world at night.

Though one thing is bothering me—my damn virginity. If only I could find a sexy bedroom expert to introduce me to the delights of having a lover. Someone handsome and charming, who can rival the hunky alpha males in my books. I have a very vivid, very well-fed imagination—he’ll have to keep up.

Then, one bitterly cold night, thanks to a devious, conniving, so-called friend, the perfect opportunity to rid myself of this pesky virginity problem comes along. Before I know it, the heroes in my novels have come alive in the person of Shane Galloway, who’s pleasuring me with every trick in the book and wheedling into my heart in the hottest ways possible.

REVIEW
This is a set compiled of several very sexy although short stories. Very entertaining. I am leaving a review for 6 of the 7.

Carved in Ink by Marissa Farrar
I absolutely loved this story. We get a young woman who inherits a tattoo shop from her late aunt. Only one problem Theresa must move to London.
Art is the tenant, and he is hiding a bit about things from his new landlord. One night almost ruins things for this couple. Fantastic, hot, sexy short read. I hope there is more to this one.

Fast Lust By Lucy Felthouse
New to me author:
Gloria is a reporter but not an exciting one until her boss has no choice but to send her into the lion's den so to speak. Her job is to interview a biker. Now how to do that?
She wants the underdog and thinks she has found it with Rafe or has she? Another really sexy read.

Heavy Metal Lust by Victoria Blisse
New to me author:
This story is hot! We get a younger man with an older woman. He is a rocker, and she is a single mom. Very sexy read indeed.


Innocent Lies by Lexie Bay
New to me author:
This story is not only sexy and hot it's suspenseful and a bit dark.
Raine is the daughter of a mobster who after losing his wife has become evil. Her brother Archie is no help and when daddy dearest passes her brother becomes just like dear old dad.
Enter Tommy, another mobster but one with a heart? This story is one heck of a good read.

In Training by K D Grace
New to me author:
Lauren is one heck of a PR person, so she is thrown big time when her boss puts her smack dab into a reality tv show. Wolf is a trainer and actor with a successful business.
He is all on board for this reality show until the woman he is to be training is someone he wants more than to train.
Sexy, and Hot!

The Gamesman by Tabitha Rayne
A Scottish Gamer and a Journalist what more could you want? Although Harriett wants Archie, he isn't feeling her the same way. This was one scorching short read.

Russian Heat (Hot Ice #7) by Lily Harlem
Russian Heat (Hot Ice Book 7) - Lily Harlem

Lily Harlem’s Russian Heat melts the ice with its heat factor.  Flight attendant Samantha Headington and NHL player Vadmir Arefyev plan on having a one-night-stand but faith has other things in store.  This contemporary sports romance takes place in Florida and Russia.  It is suitable for adult audiences.

 

I enjoyed Samantha’s character.  She reminded me of Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) from Sex and the City.  She likes her designer clothes.  She seems put-together and classy.  She enjoys sex and gets what she wants.  I like Vadmir.  He is a good son and brother.  I appreciate that he takes care of his family.  He is very generous.  I found it amusing how he kept getting his slang wrong, and Samantha kept correcting him.  Samantha and Vadmir have hot chemistry.  They are a fun couple.  They get along great and complement one another. 

 

I enjoyed the plot.  I thought it was clever how Samantha’s and Vadmir’s one-night-stand turned into more.  I loved the Russian aspect of the story.  My parents were both born in Hungary.  A lot of the culture is similar, and I found myself relating.  The story had some interesting twists and complications.  Russian Heat is an enjoyable read.  It had a good ending.  I also, liked the bonus Hot Ice short story, Rookie Rules.

Sinful by Lily Harlem
 
London is aflame with riots. Confusion and danger lurk around every corner. For Cheryl, caught alone and terrified in a dark alley, she fears she’s about to meet her maker.
 
Luckily the safe sanctuary of a small church, nestled between the deserted shops and houses, affords her protection. And within these sacred walls she finds Father Steve—a man whose decision to be celibate, marry his faith, seems to her an awful waste to the females of the world.
 
But all is not as it seems and as her hot and holy new friend reveals his layers and confesses his sins, the temperature in the church heats up more than the flames raging across the city.  
 
Safety, however, is an illusion, and the pair must fight to survive. In doing so will fate draw them together? Have the heavens mapped out their destiny? And was Father Steve telling the truth about his virginity?
 
 
Excerpt:
 
“Don’t be shocked. Tonight is unusual.” He reached out and took a lock of my hair between his fingers. He rubbed it, spreading out the blonde strands. “I think God has thrown us together. To take care of one another.”
 
“You do?”
 
“Yeah.” He looked up and smiled.
 
It was a filthy, dirty smile. The sort I’d seen on boyfriends when we’d been drinking, flirting, having fun and about to start satisfying some seriously carnal urges. “Father,” I whispered.
 
“Yes?”
 
“What … what are you doing?”
 
“Sitting with a member of my flock who appears very scared.” He shifted on the narrow pew.
 
“Yes. I am scared. Of what’s out there.”
 
“Not what’s of in here?”
 
“Should I be?”
 
“Not if you have God in your heart.”
 
“I’m not very good at going to church.” There, I’d said it.
 
“I think you’re probably good at other things.”
 
“Like what?” My heart rate was tripping along.
 
“Other things that make you feel good. Things that make the person you’re with feel good.”
 
Damn if he didn’t have that white collar sitting around his neck, I’d think he was being suggestive. Actually, no, even with that white collar I thought he was being suggestive.
 
“Feel good?” I repeated.
 
“Yes.” He leaned closer, his lips only a whisper from mine.
 
Damn the instinct to kiss him was almost overwhelming. Sure he was a stranger, but he was a good man, a man of morals and beliefs.
 
Which was exactly why I couldn’t kiss him.
 
But what if I died tonight? What if this was it? Surely I should have one last moment of passion. I loved sex, and it was one of my favorite things to do.
 
“What do you want to ask me?” he asked, his breath washing over my mouth.
 
“I don’t know.”
 
“I know you do.” He paused. “One thing. Ask me one thing. I’ll be truthful.”
 
One thing. There were so many. He was the most unusual priest I’d ever met. Not that I’d met many. Not only was he handsome in a rugged kind of way, he also oozed sex appeal. It seemed to roll off him in waves. Had we been in a club I’d have gone for him, and had a one-night stand just to see how a guy like him did it.
 
“You don’t have anything you want to ask me?”
 
“Yes. I do.”
 
“Go on then…”
 
What was really in the bag? Why was he here at night alone? Where did he live exactly? Did he look at all women the way he was looking at me—as if he were undressing them with his eyes?
 
“Have you ever had sex?” I blurted. It was the answer I really wanted after all.
 
“No.” He shook his head. “Bonafide virgin.”
 
“Oh.” Damn it. If I’d been turned on before, now I was in white-hot ready-to-go mode. The things I could teach him given the chance. What I could do with his naive, inexperienced, gorgeous body. The delights of the flesh I could introduce him to.
 
“But I bet you’ve had lots of propositions,” I said, wondering if I should sit on my hands to stop myself reaching out for him.
 
“Yes. But I’ve always turned them down.” His voice was low now, husky too. “Do you want to know why?”
 
“Yes,” I said quietly.
 
“Two reasons.”
 
“Which are?”
 
He glanced at Jesus. “I made my promises to the Lord.”
 
“Of course. Yes.”
 
“But lately…”
 
“What…?”
 
He shook his head and glanced at his lap.
 
“Lately what? Tell me.” Had he been questioning his faith? Was that it? Was that why he was looking at me as though he had only one thing on his mind—and it wasn’t the riot outside.
 
“Lately my faith has been tested. The evil in the world, including here. It’s hard to stay focused.”
 
“I’m sure.” It was my turn to take his hand. I gave it a squeeze and looked at the way the hairs fanned over the back and disappeared into the black sleeve. I ran my fingers over the letters on his knuckles. Love was clearly a moto he lived by. “And what’s the other reason?”
 
“I told you I’d had propositions.”
 
I nodded.
 
“And always turned them down.”
 
“Because you’d made promises and you love God.” I paused. “Very noble. Very commendable.”
 
“Yes.” He tipped his head. “But the thing is, Cheryl.”
 
“What?”
 
No one like you, no one as sexy as you, has ever propositioned me.”
