All I can say after reading this collection of romantic short stories is…I need to get to a Mexican beach!
Linda Lael Miller‘s Batteries Not Required was too funny. And a very sweet, cute romance involving a cowboy, a paralegal, and B.O.B. I MUST read more of her work.
Alison Kent‘s Sara Smiles started off as though the story had already ended. I kept wondering what was her reason for even writing the story when she hit me with it. Very nice. Very original. And, very sweet with a point. I want one of him…
Lucy Monroe‘s Seducing Tabby is a definite payback for all readers who are curvaceous and shy. Sweet, fun, and a triumph for anyone who’s ever felt overlooked.
Jill Shalvis‘ Captivated is a fitting title for the start of this story! Conflict, pride, and love frustrate an insurance investigator and her about-to-be-ex cop husband. I think I may have to explore more of Shalvis’ work as well.
Susanna Carr‘s Sister Switch had an interesting gimmick with the twin angle. I also enjoyed Tracy and Nick’s devious and ruthless appreciation for each other’s fierce, Machiavellian competitiveness. Had the very expected ending although Carr did introduce a slight twist which I wouldn’t mind seeing her follow up.
Morgan Leigh‘s Spencer For..Ever was also sweet and very predictable.
