I had been a little slack on my reading so to jump start my reading engine I decided to try one of Zane's books before I started on my non erotic reading lol. My favorite novellas was hands down "Twisted Stated of Mind"!!! Next, was "Goddess of Desire". I just loved the whole egyptian theme. And finally, "Mirrored Lives". I didnt really care for the other two.
I tried reading "For the Good Times" but I just can't get into it. It definitaley was lacking something. One person found this helpful.
I was warned to brace myself for the story written by Rique Johnson in this book. I must say, I was not prepared to have my mind blown. The story left me craving more of the story. I feel I learned more about Rique Johnson and his personality. His passion oozes off the pages through his words. The storyline is amazing. Every time I thought I knew where the story was headed, Rique through in material that made my eyes pop open and my mouth drop.
This is truly some of Rique's best work. I will offer the same warning that was presented to me, brace yourself. You are about to go on the ride of your life. This started out rather light, maybe even qualifying as uncomplicated. Then everything changed, truths revealed and emotion bobbed right to the surface. The dialogue is natural and gives us more about Foster and Casey each time the talk, especially with each other.
I like these two imperfect, wounded, humorous, ambitious young guys who are determined to be a lot more. I enjoyed this one and proudly say I popped my Tamara Allen cherry. I will definitely be reading more from her. This is done well and is in no way confusing. Gee, hmmm, adults discussing and then offering and accepting apologies whenever conflict rears its complicated head? The reward for conversation, sharing and working things out is so much greater than misunderstandings cloaked in false importance.
I enjoy meal scenes, any scene with any food. Well done here, that. Have I mentioned yet that this is sexy? And you, Francis Webster. You sneak, lovely devil, you. The pacing is smart. It starts off with a bang and then a breather, a moment for us, and Ash, to contemplate the short and long of his future. I was already smiling. I did not take a single note while reading this. I read right through to the last word. No breaks, no picking up a pen and notebook, nothing. Beautiful, intense, funny, painful, clever and steamy. Love the creepy, love the supernatural, love the sweet and love the heat.
This took a couple of unexpected turns with a play on a horror story classic type. Land and people… two people who fit the very definition of conflict. Every word has purpose, digging deeper in an unrelenting onslaught of pain and passion. William Raven and Guy de Metz. I love watching as you try to figure it all out. Unfortunately for you, the path is not so clear. View all 6 comments. Oct 17, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: Hawke - 2 stars Deliverance by Aleksandr Voinov - 3 stars Overall one of the most successful anthologies I have read. The Charles and Chambers stories shine the most earning 5 stars and sparking my interest in the authors.
Both were well writt 3.
- Philosophy of Literature (Ratio Special Issues).
- Kindle Feature Spotlight!
- The Narcissistic / Borderline Couple: New Approaches to Marital Therapy;
- Crazy Good Sex: Putting to Bed the Myths Men Have about Sex;
- Teaching Baby Gangsters: Reform School or Education Reform?!
Both were well written, set in the classic Regency historical setting juxtaposing nobility and successful tradesmen of no birth rite and created the right amount of UST with satisfactory resolution. At the end of last year I passed over The Magpie Lord , despite the fervor over it and the excited reviews. The Ruin of Gabriel Ashleigh made me stop in my tracks and rethink that decision. I am glad I did, because days after reading Charles' well written contribution to this anthology, I devoured the rest of her catalog in a few days and it has received four and five stars from me. I had read Chambers' Provoked prior to picking this book up and hadn't been "wowed" enough to carry on with the Enlightenment series, but Introducing Mr.
Winterbourne has sparked my interest to keep on the look out for more of her works. And rumor has it that Chambers has already signed a three book series that spawned from her story. I enjoyed the time periods Allen and Harper's stories were set in - and respectively and both set in America. It made them a refreshing take from the usual historicals set in 19th century England. However, the development of the relationships in both stories was softer for lack of a better word making the UST's lacking and characters mundane when compared to Charles and Chambers' flashier ones.
Yet, Allen and Harper did adequately portray the settings and the struggles the men faced both social and economically. Their stories were well composed, held my interest and I am glad to have gotten a taste of their writings. Voinov is one writer I always like to keep my eyes on - especially when is writing solo. A couple years ago I did read The Lion of Kent and it was a fair three star for me, as is his latest addition to the story. I am not sure if it is the time period of the Crusades or my lack of connection to William's fervor to be "righteous", but I couldn't be as excited about this story as I wanted to be for a Voinov work.
As is all his works, it is well written with always the right mix of story, sex and tension, but I think whether the reader is able to connect or like these characters is what will make or break it for them.

I had never read anything previously by Jordan L. Hawke and this contribution to the anthology has not inspired me to read anything further by her. There was virtually no romance and no build up or real explanation to the characters relationship. I think it was not the wisest for her to have contributed this story rather than an original work not affiliated with a series of hers to the anthology.
So in all, what I got out of this anthology was a writer who I wasn't familiar with and now love, a writer who has rekindled my interest in them, two short stories I love, three I am entertained by and one that allowed me a taste of an author's writing, which though I didn't care for, I appreciate and for purchasing stories I wanted to read, I also made a contribution to AllOut. And for those who loved this anthology, stop over and thank Susan as the brain child and organization for this was hers and we as readers, along with AllOut get to reap the benefits of her hard work and thoughtfulness.

Another Place in Time
Oct 18, Rating: William Raven is a member of the Knights Templar. He's serving in the holy land, hoping that by fighting for Christians he'll be forgiven for his sins, particularly for loving men. Guy de Metz comes from a wealthy family, and is on a p BR with Mishyjo! Guy de Metz comes from a wealthy family, and is on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem to absolve himself of the same sins for which William is serving.
Six years ago, the two had travelled through Europe, making a name for themselves as jousters, and living as care-free lovers, until William unexpectedly left. When the two meet again, they're both angry and hurt. And they can hardly keep their pants on. Despite being very short, this story had feels and an underlying sense of danger. It ends in a cliffhanger, but a note at the end says Voinov is currently doing some research to write the sequel, which I'm really looking forward to.
The man's year-old son disappeared in the middle of the night, without a trace and under some very mysterious circumstances. Whyborne and Griffin suspect sorcery, as the groundskeeper's younger son tells the two that his brother had repeatedly been having dreams about the town's carnival carousel, and that a strange light had led the boy out of the house. What follows is a classic Whyborne and Griffin mystery. While it was great to read more of the two MCs, it would have been interesting to see Jordan L.
Hawk expand her MM historical repertoire beyond Whyborne and Griffin. Overall it was a fun read, but I think I might not have enjoyed it as much if I wasn't already a fan of the series. Oct 15, Rating: He can't serve in the war because of a shortened leg, and he's temporarily out of a job. After moving back home, he runs into his mother's new neighbour, Stefan Koehler.
Stefan is large muscular man, with blonde hair and blue eyes, and a Germanic accent. His passport says that he's from Switzerland, but due to public paranoia, he faces harassment and discrimination. Stefan and Warren begin a hesitant friendship, after Warren helps repair some of the vandalism done to Stefan's house.
This friendship soon leads to something more. I was really enjoying this tale, right until near the end. Stefan's background story was just too convoluted and came out of left field. I felt that the odd ending took away from the story which preceded it, which was about two men overcoming adversity and social norms both about homophobia and ethnicity. But even so, if this was a separate book, I'd round up the rating to 4 stars.
Oct 11, Rating: The morning after losing everything, while he is contemplating what to do next, Gabriel receives an invitation to come visit Francis' house. When he arrives, he's surprised to learn that Francis is willing to let him play to win his money and house back. I think you can guess what follows.
Or close enough hide spoiler ]. I really enjoyed KJ Charles' short story. The background story between Francis and Gabriel could have been sad, but it ended up being funny and sweet. In this book, you can look forward to two dispirited and frustrated men, odd yet intriguing circumstances, some hot sex view spoiler [ like really hot. An alpha top claiming his man usually is. Winterbourne' by Joanna Chambers Date read: Oct 5, Rating: So when I found out that she'd be contributing to this anthology, I was really excited to read the short story. Winterbourne' definitely lived up to my high expectations.
We meet Lynsander Winterbourne, the younger son of an English nobleman, and Adam Freeman, a man who became rich through enterprise and hard work. Lysander's sister is engaged to Adam's younger brother, so the two come in to contact when Adam comes to London for the first time. Lysander is expected to guide Adam through aristocratic high society, something which the two aren't so happy about.
I think what I enjoyed the most in this book was the depiction of the mids divide between the fading aristocratic class and the rising entrepreneur class. London's high society look at Adam as an upstart, and look down at him for actually working to make his wealth. Reading how this divide effects Adam and Lysander's relationship was very entertaining. My only complaint would be that the story takes place over just one day, which I'm not a fan of as it takes away from the plausibility for me. Oct 1, Rating: The company they work for announces that in order to be more efficient, jobs would be cut across departments.
Foster and Casey, being the two newest accountants, are pitted against one another to see who gets to keep his job. In competing against one another, these two near-acquaintances get to know each other, and learn that perhaps they're more alike than they think. Overall, this story was enjoyable. We get some enemies-to-lovers action, a bit of seemingly unrequited attraction and a brief look into the lives of gay men in the s. I would have liked a bit more interaction between the two. A few more pages to cement that the two have something beyond just sexual attraction, and how they plan on living their new lives together would have been nice.
But still, a likeable story and a good start to this anthology. View all 11 comments. Sep 04, Ann rated it it was amazing Recommended to Ann by: This book represents every reason I love reading historicals. Office Romance by Tamara Allen Sweet, subtle and simple.
I loved the language, this is a perfect example of why I love reading historical stories. The language had me visualizing the setting, the characters and the mood so well. Casey had me completely charmed with his brave face and sunny attitude in the face of all he was dealing with.
These two have lived through the horror of war and now are asked to metaphorically battle it out in the office. Their story is beautifully constructed and I could feel the tension they were dealing with in the face of office cutbacks. Foster is deeper in self-preservation mode, so it took him a little longer, but Casey was a perfect balance for him. I love the setup for the HEA on this one. Adam is so very stoic and strong while Lysander is so much more than his pretty package.
Adam is surprised at the unexpected humility and heart of Lysander and it was so sweet reading their courting. Which it totally was. Oh, the dance lesson!

I wanted him to win this. It also ratcheted the sexual intensity up a few zillion notches. Supremely sexy and really quite sweet in the end. It read true, it read hopeful and hopeless in the turn of a page. These two characters had a lot of story to tell and to have any less for them would have been wrong.
Both Warren and Stefan have lived a lot of pain before they meet. Warren is a pretty open book and I really respected his strength and attitude. Stefan is treated with both caution and callousness at the hands of the townspeople. During war time this is a dangerous description and Stefan is a man sage beyond his years. He deals with the harassment with a stoic patience that belies his loneliness. And good gravy, what a story. It really gave the war a face.
The effect on the young soldiers, regardless of what side they fought on is heartbreaking no matter what role they played in battle and this story captured that perfectly.
This is one that will stick with me. Perfectly done and highly recommended. Loved it, loved it, loved it! I was so excited to start this. This was soooooo creepy and Jordan Hawk writes creepy soooooo well! She can take a sweet and innocent childhood memory and in a brief sentence horrify the hell out of you with it. The absolutely charming repartee between Whyborn and Griffin is perfectly swoony and balances the story just right. Deliverance by Aleksandr Voinov Knights and chivalry and honor and sin, what a great setup.
Another Place in Time by Tamara Allen
I loved this story, it was a frustrating struggle that I can only hope will end as well as Guy demands it to. Fate drops his former lover Guy into his world and everything William thought he had pushed beneath his holy robes comes rearing back to life. His story was told so well I could feel his torment and I really need more of their story. It ends on a very cautious, but realistic HFN. Anything else would not have read true and I have to respect that the author ended it there. There is a lot more story there to tell and I would love to read it.

So that's how we ended up here and where is here? Well I finished reading the anthology and now I'm going to tell you it was good and I really enjoyed all of the stories. I've seen some terrific reviews on GR and they've gone to the time and trouble of rating and reviewing each individual story and I'm feeling lazy so that's not going to happen here. Why haven't you already got this book? Because the stories are all really, really good and worth reading. View all 4 comments. Winterbourne by Joanna Chambers - Must read more from this author 4.
