Review ~ Anthology | Holiday
Tangled Lights and Silent Nights - Claude Bouchard,Michael Meyerhofer,Gail Cleare,Ciara Ballintyne,Erica Lucke Dean,Kelly Stone Gamble,Brenda Vicars,C. Streetlights,Nicole Evelina,Kate Birdsall,Victor Catano,Reece Taylor,Diane Byington

3.5 (average)

 

Book source ~ ARC. My review is voluntary and honest.

 

In the spirit of giving, the authors have generously opted to donate all profits to The LifeAfter—Visions of Hope Project, whose passion is to shatter the stigma and spread awareness to three taboo topics that underscore society today: Suicide, Substance Abuse, and Domestic Violence.

 

Mystery, fantasy, paranormal, contemporary - there’s something for everyone in this Christmas-themed collection. Some are connected to a series, others are independent. What they all have in common (besides Christmas) is that they are all pretty good. I've read a few of these authors and while I enjoyed visiting with them again, I think what I enjoyed most is trying out all the others who are new-to-me. Looks like I'm adding more authors to my never-ending list and that's never a bad thing.

 

The Moment I Knew I Would Love Ethan Forever ~ Brenda Vicars (4 bites)

 

Yuletide Homicide: A Liz Boyle Short ~ Kate Birdsall (4 bites)

 

A Crazy Christmas (Cass Adams, #0.5) ~ Kelly Stone Gamble (5 bites) The ending to this one made me LOLOL and then LOL some more. Because I read Book 1. ;)

 

Rowans’ Gift (A Dragonkin story) ~ Michael Meyerhofer (3 bites)

 

A Merry Mugging (A Vigilante Series Short) ~ Claude Bouchard (3 bites)

 

A Vanderbilt Christmas ~ Nicola Evelina (3 bites)

 

Another Bloody Festival ~ Ciara Ballintyne (2 bites)

 

Holiday in Hartland ~ Gail Cleare (3 bites)

 

Some Carry-tail: A Gabriel & Orson Christmas ~ Victor Catano (4 bites)

 

A Twin Oaks Christmas ~ Reece Taylor (3 bites)

 

The Christmas Jacket ~ Diane Byington (4 bites)

 

A Muse-ing Christmas ~ Kelley Kaye (4 bites)

 

Building Cairns ~ Darren Leo (4 bites and a nibble)

 

A Katie Christmas ~ Erica Lucke Dean (4 bites)

 

Convergence ~ Stacey Roberts (4 bites)

 

Caesar’s Gift ~ LeTeisha Newton (3 bites)

Heat and plot
Love under the Lights (Whole Lotta Love) - S.L. Carpenter,Sahara Kelly

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

 

Toni Sinclair is stuck between a rock and a…rock. The hard place is about to show up. After she blows her top at her scummy sexually harassing boss and storms out she wonders how the hell she’s going to find another job and pay down her pile of debt. Lucky for her she runs into a successful adult film actress. Suze thinks Toni has what it takes, so she gives her a number to call. Is Toni desperate enough to dial that number?

 

Well-written with depth to the characters this isn’t porn about the porn industry. This is a romance that happens while filming porn. Toni and cameraman Paul Whittaker fall for each other a bit quick, but considering the circumstances it’s forgivable. A little on the short side (the story, not *ahem* other things) it’s a quick naughty read with lots of heart.

Sleeping with the Sandman (Surprise Passion Series Book 5) - Mia Fox

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

 

Savannah suffers from nightmares and is seeing a therapist who is helping her achieve a normal life. One of the things the therapist wants her to do is start dating. But Savannah’s issues run deep and she’s having a hard time with the assignment. She much prefers The Sandman who pulls her out of her nightmares and helps her to sleep.

 

Ok, I have to admit to disappointment in this one. There’s no monster at all! The Sandman is an unusual character, but he looks human, so no monster bits or non-con sex.  *pouts* It is a pretty decent short story though, so props for that.

Monster Porn Monday #3
Scent of the Centaur (Surprise Passion Series Book 4) - Mia Fox

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

 

Athena commits a major no-no by sleeping with a student while working as a lecturer in Greek history and mythology at a college. Put on administrative leave she decides to take a trip of a lifetime. To Greece. Athena is about to get schooled.

 

Kyros may be a centaur but he’s definitely hung like a horse. This isn’t very monstery, but it’s kinda hot. There are some editing issues and it’s a bit short with an abrupt ending, but all-in-all not a bad quick read.

Ethel and the Merman (Surprise Passion Series Book 3) - Mia Fox

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

 

Ethel and her son Jonah are constantly being disappointed by her ex (Jonah’s dad), but one day they meet someone who may be able to take away the wariness they both have of men who are scumbags.

 

Atlas is a merman and he’s not particularly monstrous, so I’m not sure how this would fit under monster porn. Yes he has a tail, but once in his lair he can switch to legs. So…except for the swimming part he’s not exactly a monster. There’s a decent story here and hot sex, but monster bits are noticeably absent.
