Some Like It Hot - Olivia Cunning, Nicole Edwards, Cherrie Lyn, Kristen Proby, Lainey Reese

Oh this anthology is exciting. New stories from some of my favourite people. What more could a girl want?
I was absolutely ecstatic to be apart of this blog tour. Talk about happy dancing. I swear my husband thinks I'm loopy.

Warning - since this is a anthology the format to this post is going to be a little different. 

One Starry Night - Olivia Cunning

Synopsis - In high school, Jake was the bad boy who made Michelle burn with desire, took what he wanted from her body, and broke her heart. In hindsight, Michelle never should have gotten tangled up with the aspiring guitarist in the first place. In high school, Devlin was a sweet, shy geek who’d had a crush on her, but when he’d found the courage to ask her to Prom, she’d turned him down flat. In hindsight, she should have worried more about the quality of the boy than her reputation with the popular crowd. But this isn’t high school anymore. At her ten year class reunion, Michelle finds her once popular crowd lacking, but finds both the man who broke her heart and the one she once rejected irresistibly sexy. She wants them. Both of them. And they want her any way—every way—they can have her. Can she resist either man? Does she even want to try?

This story starts off with Michelle's POV. Turning up at her 10yr school reunion is really the last thing she wants. She's not a sheep anymore and has no interest in catching up with the Mean Girls that she used to hang out with. Quickly moving through Devlin's (Geeky boy back in the day turned super hot successful, rich spunk) and then Jake's (Sinners Roadie, Has gone to the Reunion with Sed Lionheart) view as well it clear once they start talking that theres a spark going ignite here that will not going to be easily extinguished.

Once they decide to leave the reunion together it's all on from there. Moving quickly (Apparently it's quicker to Devlin's place via helicopter), no time is wasted in working everyone into a frenzy. Holy smoke this story gets hotter and hotter with every page.

Olivia definitely does a good job in making me want more of the story. This story left me feeling like it wasn't over. I got to the end and I was definitely looking for the epilogue.  
I loved every single minute!

Boots Optional (Dead Heat Ranch #0.5)- Nicole Edwards

Synopsis - Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other. Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them. Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.

After reading this 0.5 of the new Dead Heat Ranch series I'm so impatient to see what is going to happen next with Grace, Grant & Lane. This little glimpse into this new world has gotten me all excited. It also got me a little frustrated (No not like that, gee where is your mind? Hehehe), After getting this snippet I need more. The impatient person in me needs to know what is going to happen with these 3.
Grace is a hardass, take no prisoners and isn't afraid to call people out on their BS. As far as she's concerned that is what it is with Grant & Lane. Bulls**t, A game that she wants no part of. Little does she realise these boys are dead certain about her and it's anything but a game to them.
Grant is the more serious one out of the two. The one who thinks maybe a little too much sometimes. Lane is the laid back, "see where it goes" kinda guy.
Obviously these boys are scorching as well which doesn't help Grace and her resolve to not get mixed up with one or the other.

Watching the story all play out and the way it ends has me highly anticipating #1 in the Dead Heat Ranch series. (Note to Nicole, Instead of #1 I will accept Braydon (The next in the Alluring Indulgence series) as acceptable compensation for all the pain and suffering this whole waiting business is causing me hehehe).

Shameless - Cherrie Lynn

Synopsis -  It's a vacation Meredith Taylor will never forget. A sunny beach, good friends and good times. But when she overhears a couple having a passionate interlude on the balcony above her one night, she can't get the man's sultry voice out of her mind. Especially when she figures out exactly who that man is... 
Cameron Moore always had an eye on his best friend's little sister but considered her strictly off limits, choosing to satisfy his lust elsewhere. Now Meri seems to want to annihilate every wall Cam's put up against her. The beach is hot, the drinks are cold, Meredith is irresistible, and something has to give. Will it only be the walls between them, or their hearts as well?

Talk about steaming up my kindle. I'm surprised it didn't spontaneously combust after reading this one. I'm sure we've all been there. Someone we've had our eye on for ages and thoughts start to wander and we play the "What if" game. Well this little story is all about what would happen if the "What If's" and fantasies Meredith has about her crush become reality.
This one as I said was steaming hot. Cameron was sweet with Meredith and was definitely living up to her expectations. This is another one where I would love to see more of the characters in a story of their own.
Cherrie definitely lived up to my expectations. This lady knows how to write gorgeous sweet tattooed men that is for sure (I'm a major fan of Brian from Rock Me).

Playing With Fire - Kristen Proby

Synopsis - Bailey Whitworth is a charity event organizer and a woman exploring her sexuality. Kevin Welling and Gray McDermitt are firefighters and best friends who share everything. Bailey always knew her sexual appetites were "different", but she had no idea that she could fall in love with two men at once. What will she do when she has to choose between them? Or will she have to choose at all?

Holy hot Firemen. Seriously if my house was burning down I would want the likes of Kevin and Gray to come and rescue me. It's not exactly that Kristen knows how to write spunky men in/out of uniform but these two men are cemented as two of my favourites from her. Bailey is certainly one lucky lady. 
Now some of you might remember Bailey from Tied With Me (She was Nic's best friend).
Bailey was always straight up about how she wasn't as vanilla as what she appeared to be but Kristen didn't go into great detail about her so it's really nice to see she gets some more story time. 
This is another story that I adored. The men are sweet and know how to take care of Bailey at the same time making sure they get what they want. I don't think Bailey ever stood a chance.

Guarding Nadia - Lainey Reese

Synopsis - When Nadia Dixon walked into the offices of CJ Investigations, the last thing she expected to find were men who looked more like GQ models than bodyguards. It was desperation that brought her to their door however and she prayed that the two sex gods were more than just pretty faces.

Caleb and Jonas had started their security firm together after leaving the Secret Service. They had the lethal skill and training to safeguard anyone, including the gorgeous erotic author. Considering her stunning beauty, alluring sensuality and decadent profession, the only wonder was that she had drawn out just one obsessed fan. After hearing Nadia's story and seeing for themselves the threat that she was under, they knew they could keep her safe from any stalker.

Their only worry...who was going to keep her safe from them?

This one just went from hot to sizzling to inferno in a split second. Oh what a ride. I did love the little mystery that was the instigator for this story. I'm a sucker for the Security/PI type guy as well so Caleb and Jonas were definitely a highlight of this story.

Because of the mystery side of it all, I feel I can't go into too much detail as I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Definitely a good short read. I'm hoping there will be more from these 3 in the future. 


If you are a fan of just one of these ladies or all of them (Seriously how can you not love all of them?) then this Anthology is a must have in your library or on your kindle. You will not regret it.
