great box set!
Cosmic Cabaret: Science Fiction Romance Anthology - Alicia Kat Vancil,Athena Grayson,Dena Garson,Kerry Adrienne,Selene Grace Silver,Cailin Briste,Blaire Edens,Rosalie Redd,Jayne Fury,Diana Rivis,SFR Shooting Stars,Cathryn Cade (CJ Cade),Tessa McFionn,Jenna Lincoln
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this box set. Welcome aboard the LS Quantum, a star ship to rival all the star ships. 13 stories based on board and around the entertainers and the guests, finding love among the stars was never their plans, but who are they to mess with fate?? I mostly enjoyed these. One or two I didn't read, and there was no one that stood out as they usually do, for me anyway, in these box sets. Some authors I've not read before, and I find these box sets the best way to find new to me authors. We have humans and aliens, princes and rock stars, murders to solve and thieves to track. All the ones I read were well written, with no spelling or editing errors I spotted. Some are more explicit than others, and some carry are darker undertone. Some are a little more way sci-fi based and some are just two people falling in love on a space ship. A great box set, great value for the £2.95/$3.89 (Nov 8th 2017) is on sale for. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

a nice 3 star read
Mended with Gold - Lee Welch Mended with Gold - Lee Welch
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. After witnessing a colleague step on a land mine, and dealing with the aftermath of that, Alex runs to the other side of the world, to to get away from it all and to get back to his photography. Meeting Joe, a comic book artist, shook him more than he thought. But Joe is standoffish. Can Alex break down Joe's walls, as well as his own?? The reviews I find hardest to write are the 3 stars ones. The ones for books that I neither loved, nor hated. That it was just a nice easy read, that didn't blow me away at all. So this, being one of those, is gonna be short and sweet. It's well written but only Alex has his say, in the third person. Yes of COURSE I wanted to hear from Joe, I always want more I know I do, but I think I might have enjoyed this one more, had Joe been given a voice too. Its not overly explicit, there is no break up/make up. There is talk of drug use, but only in the context of looking to score, it's not described in any detail. It's a NICE book! It's only short, some 94 pages, took me just under an hour. A perfect lunch break, bath tub, hangover cure book. Will I read more by this author? Possibly. First I've read of their work. I'll give them another chance. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

short and so deliciously sweet!
Mr. Plum - Sue Brown
I won my copy of this book and no review was required, but I gotta tell you about this book! Another addition to the Too Stinking Cute shelf, and I really rather loved it. Its only short, some 30 odd pages, but its so deliciously sweet! Tom will tell the story of his and Dave's relationship with the beginning in the launderette. But Dave will tell you, it goes back far before then, to a cup of coffee in a paper sleeve that matched Tom's tie. Even though only Dave has a say, and Tom doesn't get a word in, at all, I still enjoyed it. Its very written, and you connect to both Dave AND Tom really well, for such a short book. I didn't spot a single spelling mistake or editing errors. Sue Brown in a new to me author, and this was a perfect introduction to her work. Fabulous little hangover cure, if ever there was one. 4 solid stars **Same worded review will appear elsewhere**

not needed to follow main books
Tangled In Shadows: Kyn Kronicles Short Stories - Jami Gray
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I was gifted my copy of this book. Four shorts, designed to be read along the main books. Wrapped In Shadows, book 0.5 We are into produced to Raine, Gavin and Xander here. They are Wraith, members of an elite guard with in the Kyn, similar to the humans Black Ops teams. Only Gavin has a say here. Submerged In Shadows, book 1.5 Raine is on an enforced vacation with her uncle, Ryan, when they come across a Selkie, trying to get her skin back. I didn't fully understand the implications of what that meant, though. Raine speaks here. Masked By Shadows, book 2.5 Raine and Gavin are sent to New Orleans to deliver a package, and nothing is ever simple for this pair! Ensnared By Shadows, book 3.5 Ryuu, second to Vidis, of the Motoki Pack, has to deal with Lliana, of the Division, and a rather nasty spider! I don't know what I expected to get from these four little shorts, but I felt a little let down by them. After the first which was an introduction to the Kyn and these people, the other three books seemed kind of . . .I dunno . . .after thoughts, maybe? Oh don't get me wrong, they are nice little shorts, but I don't see their connections to the main books. Maybe that will come in future books, the diverging of the storylines. Nice little shorts, but you don't NEED them to enjoy the main books. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

short, and I needed to hear from BOTH men.
Keeping him Safe - Elizabeth Coldwell Keeping him Safe - Elizabeth Coldwell
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. Faced, quite literally, with the man of his dreams, Xander has to keep the real Jon from ended up like he does in Xander's dreams: dead on the bathroom floor. I liked this! It's only short, some 60 odd pages (according to Goodreads, but Amazon puts it at 15! Go figure!) just under an hours reading time, for me. The first I've read of Coldwell's that I can see, unless there was one in a box set, but it makes me want to read more. Longer, more in depth. It's not overly complicated, nor is it explicit, or graphic. It's very well written and I did not spot a single spelling or editing error. BUT Only Xander has a say! And I know, I KNOW I say it far too often, and I'm gonna have to get over my aversion to single point of view books but I gotta say it here, again! Had Jon had a say, I have no doubt, none what-so-ever, that this would have been a 5 star read! I NEEDED to hear from Jon, I really did. I liked that Xander tried so very hard NOT to fall for Jon, even after that first time. He tried so hard, bless him, but Jon won him over real quick! I loved that Jon was totally unfazed by Xander's revelation about his dreaming about Jon, and it did not bother him at all! Even for such a short book, had Jon had a voice, it would be a five star read but he didn't, so... 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
