My Review 

I received an ebook copy for an honest review.

I’ve read three stories in this so far (I started with the first story and worked my way through) and I’m impressed with how much story an author can pack into a short word count. Unfortunately, I found a few spelling/grammar typos that a good edit would’ve caught. Still, it didn’t take away from my enjoyment.

4 Stars -- Pictured her Loved by Sidney Bristol -- The H/h met in a previous book but their back story is quickly rehashed for new readers. I liked this story the most because I’m fascinated by the BDMS culture. Odalia and Jacques are professionals by day and Dom/sub by night. Their relationship is all-consuming, very hot and I sooooo want a bossy, caring man like Jacques in my life.

3.5 Stars -- Once Upon a Seal by SM Butler – Maddie befriends a recluse, Sebastian, even though he won’t let her see his face in fear of rejection. Their friendship seemed believable and I rooted for them to fall in love. Their relationship formed fast and, while I liked that, they claimed to love each other far too fast. Still, it’s a sweet story about acceptance and moving on with your life.

3 Stars – The Invention of Marriage by Kat Cantrell – Alexia and Jesse meet by chance and sparks fly. They’re both very busy professionals so they juggle their careers with dates for a few months. She then gets a job offer in another state which prompts them to push aside their career ambitions for love.
