for me because I rarely care to follow a heroine to the bitter er happy ending of a romance novel these days I mean we all know they ride off into the sunset and the characters are rarely so compelling that I care to follow them as far as the horizon So I picked up a collection of shorts I think the general idea is supposed to be that the men are manly but that s pretty much true in all romance novels The first guy is ex military so yeah, that makes sense The second guy runs a gym does that make you manly More like muscular Third guy is a spy okay, sure, James Bond is manly in a dapper way Last guy is a US Marshall I guess law enforcement is manly The word holster sounds kind of butch They are all contemporaries, which I usually don t like so much it interferes with the fantasy if things like surveillance systems and laptops and motor boats and restaurant bathroom etiquette start to factor into the scenario.First up Cooper s Fall by Lora Leigh she jumps right into the action and sets up her characters a virgin desperate to lose her virginity to the guy next door and, well, the guy next door Like all romance novel heroes he is a notorious cassanova who nevertheless has a soft spot for one woman to whom he will be completely faithful just as soon as he ravishes her and realizes that, though she was a virgin until she met him, she issexually satisfying than any other woman he has ever had and therefore renders meaningless the pursuit of other women Author follows script There is some threat to her life having to do with an ex mafioso who is her beloved father figure but it s sort of beside the point I didn t even finish this story because whatever, they get married, blah blah blah Started off well but the end was boring as hell.Next Luring Lucy by Lori Foster nice premise here, little unusual A guy has always had the hots for his best friend s wife but has been man enough to hide it from everyone even after his best friend cheats on his wife, she leaves him, and he gets killed in a terrible accident Finally over her grief the widow has decided to take a random guy as a lover cause she s sick of being the good wife widow and wants to get some good for her so naturally the best friend guy follows her to her trysting spot and announces his undying love for her which of course prompts her to say well hell yeah you re a hottie, I ve always thought so I liked that it was uncomplicated adult lust without weird power issues or death threats I can t remember how it ends but who cares right Two thumbs up.And then The Edge of Sin by Cheyenne McCray a graduate student in something or other seduces a secret service agent who is actually part of some super secret spy organization Basically everything else, including a threat to her life is just backdrop for a secret agent story he wants to be close to her because she s perfect, but he can t because he has to be a secret agent She is a virtuous, brave, hottie who just happens to have been celibate for no particular reason for a long time It was okay I liked that the woman was studying for a masters degree while working the make up counter at a department store, different.Finally Wanted A Real Man By Heidi Betts this might have been the worst of the lot She s his high school girlfriend come back to tell him that she had his child, kept it a secret, married another man and let him raise her, and now she has left the other guy and he has kidnapped their daughter Not really that much of a fantasy for me Also they kept bonking when they needed to be finding the little girl I wasn t into this one Skimmed to end I enjoyed all but the very last story in this erotic, modern, romantic suspense 1 Cooper s Fall by Lora LeighThis was NOT connected to anything that this author has already written, but does open a potential doorway into a new series involving former Rangers all working at a local bar owned by one of them the main character in this story , Ethan Cooper He lives next door to Sarah Fox and for two years they ve been polite with each other Sarah has a dark secret4 Stars2 Luring Lucy by Lo I enjoyed all but the very last story in

the move Not much to this one in the suspense department More a modern erotic romance.4 Stars3 The Edge of Sin by Cheyenne McCrayNo build up or tension between h h This MAY be part of a series already or has the potential for a series Pertains to a secret government agency called Recovery and Enforcement Division REDS Zane Steele is the hero who felt he couldn t get involved in a long term relationship due to his job and the secrets around it He meets and falls IMMEDIATELY for Willow They actually made a good couple, but the way they start off their relationship was eyebrow raisingI believe it is this couple featured on the cover 4 Stars4 Wanted A Real Man by Heidi BettsHorrible plot U.S Marshal Linc I m sorry this just felt too much like a spin off from Tommy Lee Jones with his deputy Noah is still carrying a grudge from 10 years ago when his long time high school girlfriend asks him to help her find her daughter that was kidnapped by her wealthy soon to be ex husband she signed a prenuptial Then she admits that the daughter was Lincs Ugh He hates her guts for walking out on him with a short note and hates her evenfor never telling him he had a daughter For me, Claire never redeemed herself on either count Linc treats Claire like dirt Ignored her most of the time, not filling her in on what was happening They check into a motel room and start going at it like rabbits What What about searching for their daughter The author mentions that until they heard from Noah the deputy, again U.S Marshals movie they had to wait.Awful1 StarTwo of the stories mention the heroine having a Coach handbagwhat s up with that I really liked the Lora Leigh story The hero was an Uber alpha without being an Uber a hole It s stories like these that keep bringing me back to Lora Leigh On a side note I loooved the piercings giggle I didn t read Lori Foster s book Edge of Sin was okay The heroine was a brazen little hussy that certainly went after what she wanted The sex was

the sunset The end I may have to hunt down somebooks by her This book is a collection of 4 sexy stories by popular erotic sensual romance authors.Cooper s Fall by Lora LeighSummary Sarah Fox is a shy but sensual young woman living in a small Texas town But she secretly lusts after the bad boy next door She hasn t worked up the nerve to come on to him, and he s never really shown an interest in her Then Ethan Cooper spies Sarah sunbathing naked in her back yard and all his preconceived notions of her go out the window And he can t stop thinking about This book is a collection of 4 sexy stories by popular erotic sensual romance authors.Cooper s Fall by Lora LeighSummary Sarah Fox is a shy but sensual young woman living in a small Texas town But she secretly lusts after the bad boy next door She hasn t worked up the nerve to come on to him, and he s never really shown an interest in her Then Ethan Cooper spies Sarah sunbathing naked in her back yard and all his preconceived notions of her go out the window And he can t stop thinking about her He tells himself to stay away from her, but he just can t Then he finds out that Sarah has a slew of secrets and past he could never have imagined But now that he s hooked on her, he isn t about to let her go.Review I really enjoyed this novella by Leigh It s pretty typical, character wise, of what she usually writes The heroine is an undiscovered sex kitten and the hero is an Alpha bad boy to the core Cooper is mildly brutish at times, but never so much that it ticked me off He s just Alpha.The story is pretty simple, but what do you expect with something just about 100 pages Still, it was a solid story that didn t leaving me feeling cheated because it was so short I thought Leigh got enough in to make the story complete And the sex was smokin It s mostly of the vanilla variety, but it was still damn hot Just an all around, moderately sweet, sexy, story to read I liked it.Rating 4 5 Luring Lucy by Lori Foster note this novella is apparently a reprint of a previously published storySummary Lucy is a weary, lonely widow who is trying to get some spark back into her life after a marriage that was nearing divorce before her husband died So she decides to head up to her vacation cabin on the lake with every intention of finding a man for a hot fling But when her longtime friend and her late husband s best friend , Bram, realizes what she has planned, he realizes he finally has to make a move on the woman he has loved for a long, long time It s for him to seduce Lucy and reveal his feelings for her.Review I didn t enjoy this novella as much as the first one It came off kind of flat to me I didn t hate it or really dislike it, but it didn t draw me like the first book.I thought the story hook was a bit trite, with the good friend longing for the woman he couldn t have but now that she s free he can finally go after her Not a particularly original storyline It needed somethingunique to hook me in.I also didn t really like how like 99% of the story covers only a few hours of time There s all this build up andbuild up, then you get the sex scene, then it s they spent the next week I just wanted.But what I liked least was the love aspect from the heroine, Lucy Throughout the story, I just never felt like she was in love with Bram Attracted, yes In sudden lust, yes In love No And then the end roles around and she s saying yes, she loves him Probably has for a while, and I m thinking, huh where d that come from I just did not feel it from her end Which is a big part of what made this story feel flat for me So though it was a moderately good story, I didn t love it in any way It wassensual than erotic, as wellwhich, there s nothing wrong with, but compared to the Lora Leigh novella, it s a lot less racy.Rating 3 5The Edge of Sin by Cheyenne McCraySummary Zane Steele, a RED agent, is in the Boston Common one day when he sees a gorgeous woman eating an ice cream cone He s instantly drawn to her and though he tells himself to stay away, he can t help but approach her The woman, Willow Randolph, feels the same attraction and it isn t long before the two begin a blistering affair But Zane s dangerous job has always made him wary of relationships He tries to tell himself Willow will be fine, but then a recent case directly affects her and Zane has to deal with the consequences.Review First it s important to note that this novella takes place in McCray s Lexi Steele universe I would call it a between the numbers book as it is not crucial to the series,just a bonus read I haven t read the other booksbut if I didn t already know that they are written in the first person which I HATE I would probably consider reading them.Hot story, though It s kind of a love at first sight romance because the H H are hooked from the first moment I m not always a fan of books where the H H jump into bed right away when they hardly know each other, but this was an erotic novella and the H H had great chemistry so I could overlook it.I did wish the story was longer because I thought the ending was glossed over, concerning Zane s worries of his job spilling over into Willow s life I didn t feel like there was any resolution there So I wouldn t have minded if there had been another ten pages or so But all in all, this was a good short story Rating 4 5Wanted A Real Man by Heidi BettsSummary Claire Scarborough is desperate for help A messy divorce has led to her soon to be ex to kidnap her daughter So Claire goes to the one man she thinks can help, the little girl s biological father, US Marshal Lincoln Rappaport The only problem is, Linc doesn t know he got Claire pregnant all those years ago when they were high school sweethearts He just remembers that the girl he planned to married ran off one night, leaving only a note behind Now she s back, telling him he has a kid, and asking for help Linc has no choice but to help, but he won t let Claire into his heart again Which is easier said than done.Review I must admit I was a little surprised by this novella I ve read a couple other of Betts s stories didn t really see the author as the erotica novella type But I wrong Betts writes a rather good, sexy short story I actually thought it was hotter than Foster s novella.The novella was a pretty solid one, too, in the sense that I didn t feel like I was short changed due to the length of the story It had a mini plot, a reunion, hot sex, a resolution to the mini plot The only area I thought could have been a little better was the reconciliation between the H H It was a little to simplified But overall, I thought this was a really good, sexy story It fit well with the others in this collection.Rating 4 5For the collection as a whole, I enjoyed itthan I thought I would Romance novellas are often very hit or miss, but this book was mostly hits My favorite would probably be the Lora Leigh novella and my least favorite the Lori Foster one.WARNING, this book contains explicit sex and language, oral sex, a little voyeurism exhibitionism, body jewelry, semi public sexto be continued Four short stories1 Cooper s Fall by Lora Leigh I ve been reading some less than good Bound Hearts books so I wasn t expecting much and ended up really liking it Sarah met Ethan by chance years before but was so fascinated that she ended moving next door to him waiting for him to notice her Two years later after seeing her nude sunbathing, he finally notices her There s a mystery regarding her past that comes into play Very good story.2 Luring Lucy by Lori Foster Bram has always been i Four short stories1 Cooper s Fall by Lora Leigh I ve been reading some less than good Bound Hearts books so I wasn t expecting much and ended

he finally notices her There s a mystery regarding her past that comes into play Very good story.2 Luring Lucy by Lori Foster Bram has always been in love with Lucy even before she married his best friend 20 years later, Lucy is a widow after a horrible split from her husband After Bram finds out that Lucy s finally ready to move on with some anonymous sex, Bram freaks out and drives as fast as he can to catch up with her Very sweet, romantic, sexy story.3 The Edge of Sin by Cheyenne McCray I ve not cared for the two full length novels by this author so had no idea how I would like the short story It was actually really great Zane sees Willow in a park and is instantly drawn to her They find out they know some of the same people There s an attempted kidnapping and someone gets shot I really liked both characters and enjoyed this story.4 Wanted A Real Man by Heidi Betts Claire left Linc when they were in high school to go to California from Pennsylvania not knowing she was pregnant at the time She married someone for convenience and out of fear not wanting to return home and not knowing how to support her daughter 10 years later she s getting a divorce and her ex husband to be kidnaps her daughter She goes back to Linc who s a Federal Marshall to get her daughter back and they reconnect although at first Linc hates her because she left without really saying why and broke his heart Very good story This is the second short story I ve read by Heidi Betts and enjoyed them both a lot Her full length books are about women in a knitting club which made me put the book back when I found it in a used book store But after really enjoying both of her short stories, if it s still there I ve going to buy it I would recommend this book For an anthology, this is one of the most well written I ve read even with the horrible title Some parts were pretty hot but it s official Contemporary romance is not my thing and cops and soldiers really don t float my boat To turn me on, a hero pretty much has to have fangs or a British Scottish Irish accent Or fangs and an accent, even better So, really It s about me, not the book Just not a good fit If I had to choose, the first story, by Lora Leigh, is probably my favorite There s a gangster story in there by way of a plot, but it doesn t distract too much from the Boom Boom Some parts were pretty hot but it s official Contemporary romance is not my thing and cops and soldiers really don t float my boat To turn me on, a hero pretty much has to have fangs or a British Scottish Irish accent Or fangs and an accent, even better So, really It s about me, not the book Just not a good fit If I had to choose, the first story, by Lora Leigh, is probably my favorite There s a gangster story in there by way of a plot, but it doesn t distract too much from the Boom Boom Pow, which, be honest, has got to be the real reason most of up pick up this book The hero, Cooper, is messed up but endearing, and has a yummy way with words I d probably go for him myself.That said, a note to writers of erotic fiction Core and Channel are not sexy words The former makes me think of rotten fruit and the latter, remote controls or polluted water Or Shirley Maclaine, I guess Anyway, not sexy There are other,endearing names for Lady Parts I m just sayin Four erotic novellas that are great for an afternoon of reading. My story is a reissue, but the other novellas are new, so I m reading them I ve gotten to know Heidi Betts now, and I like her writing style a lot. 4 stars Contemporary Romance Erotica AnthologyReal

love em and leave em, bad boy lifestyle He suddenly finds his life turned upside down and his hardened, cold heart turned inside out when he finds himself lusting after his quiet, innocent, prim and proper neighbor, Miss Sarah Fox This was a smokin hot read and my favorite out of the four I loved Sarah s character, and her yearning and loneliness brought tears to my eyes I really loved this story I don t think it s related to any of Leigh s previous works, but I hope it s the beginning of a potential new series, or at least that there will bestories about Cooper s former Ranger buddies 5 stars Luring Lucy by Lori FosterThis is a friends to lovers story about a widow who goes to her family vacation home in hopes of moving on from past anger and grief over the loss of her cheating, deceased husband and to have a fling to slake her loneliness and yearning When her longtime friend and her husband s best friend Bram insists on being the only man to give her what she needs, Lucy finds herself in a hot, passionate, emotion filled affair that shakes the foundation of their relationship, especially when Bram wants and demands everything from her I ve heard great things about author Lori Foster, but this was my first read by her It s a sexy story and I liked it, but I think it s one of those that really needed a bitlength to fully develop Still, it deserves a high rating for luscious, sexy, stud on a stick with size, Bram if for no other reason 4.5 stars The Edge of Sin by Cheyenne McCrayZane Steele in a leading undercover operative for a clandestine government agency called RED Recovery Enforcement Division He s never allowed himself to get close to anyone or to have a real relationship because of the serious dangers of his job and the risk of potential threats of retaliation When he meets spirited grad student Willow, he feels an immediate connection and explosive attraction and finds himself caring and contemplating something serious for the first time in his life When his enemies threaten Willow, will Zane fight for what they have together, or let her go This is loosely tied to McCray s Lexi Steele series, and I enjoyed it, even though I didn t really care for The First Sin 4 stars Wanted A Real Man by Heidi BettsClaire abandoned her high school sweetheart and escaped her tiny hometown to make a better life for herself Now, ten years later, she seeks him out to enlist his help to find her kidnapped nine year old daughter their daughter Her former flame, U.S Marshal Linc Rappaport, has harbored ten years of hurt, bitterness, anger, and betrayal over Claire s desertion, and now he finds out that she kept his daughter a secret from him all these years Regardless of his mixed, tumultuous feelings for Claire, he vows to help find their daughter, but being close to her again after suffering for ten long years makes Linc want to claim what s his once and for all This was an okay story and it covered the gamut of raw emotions, but the change from hate to lust to love felt really abrupt and unrealistic Also, Claire s reasoning for leaving and staying away from Linc seemed stupid and shallow, and it didn t paint her in a very favorable light 3.5 4 stars.Overall, it s an entertaining, smokin hot contemporary erotic romance anthology with four sexy, satisfying stories about hunky alpha heroes who can last all night and the strong women who love them 4 stars `Free E-pub ↛ Real Men Last All Night ☛ Today s top erotic romance writers come together for a steamy read of four sexy stories about women who discover that real
