“Good with His Hands” (Watson Brothers, 3)
“Miss Extreme Congeniality” (quick peek at characters from Smart Mouth, FBI Agents, 1.5?)

Three short stories in this anthology in which black tie features in three women’s fantasies.

The Stories

Lori Foster‘s “Good with His Hands” reflects Cassidy McClannahan’s abrupt realization that one aspect of her dreams does not mesh with her true self. This is a cute, insightful story about two people who have taken the time to build a friendship although Cassidy’s reasons are different from Pete Watson’s.

The title of Erin McCarthy‘s “Miss Extreme Congeniality” is a play on itself as CJ White is not congenial. Wyatt Maddock must love her to put up with all this! Another cute story.

Morgan Leigh‘s “Last Call” is only peripherally related to bars as Fletcher Graham does meet Tara in one. He’s entranced with her voice. She wants to meet the mayor about her historic inheritance. Another cute story; this and the first were my favorites in this anthology.

The Cover and Title

The cover is a torso shot of a hunky-seeming guy in black tie — with that tie undone.

The title reflects the theme of this collection, which the authors have used creatively — Bad Boys in Black Tie.
