IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE (Irresistible Romance Book 3) Anthology – Review by Jennifer Gordon

IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE (Irresistible Romance Book 3)IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Celebrate the season of love”. These romantic stories range from fun and flirty to semi-sweet and suspenseful. I enjoyed all the stories in this anthology and was introduced to some new authors as well as some old favourites. I particularly liked ‘Two Hearts’ Reconnaissance’ by Tamara Ferguson, Eve Loughlin and Harry Giordano are teenage survivors and are drawn to each other from the first time they meet. The chemistry between Eve and Harry sizzled off the page. I fell in love with the characters and liked how they had overcome obstacles and survived. Sadly their careers separated them but the love they shared was strong, can they find their way back to their hearts? Although the story touches on some sensitive issues it is all about love and hope and does have a HEA. No spoilers, I recommend the story to find out.
The other story which stood out was by Jacquie Biggar, ‘The Player’, this is book 2 of Biggar’s, ‘ Men of Warhawkes’ series about a successful NHL Hockey team. Defenceman Roy Donaldson lives and breathes hockey so when an ex girlfriend turned stalker causes trouble for the team he is not happy. He’s even less impressed when he gets benched and so turns to PA Patience Kennedy for help. In order for Patience to receive a junior partnership she must restore Roy’s reputation, however she thinks Roy is moody and annoying, oh, and very attractive. Roy thinks Patience is sexy but sassy. The chemistry between them shows from their first meeting and grows each time they are together resulting in some steamy scenes. I loved the characters and the storyline flowed nicely.
‘A Little Change of Plans’ by Suzanne Jenkins had lovely characters and a great storyline, Jake falls in love at first sight when he meets rookie firefighter Geri. ‘All Night Long’ by Cynthia Cooke had a unique storyline featuring a Valentine’s party, a fake engagement and a St. Bernard coming to the rescue on a snowy mountain, ending in romance. Susan Jean Ricci’s ‘First Class Flirtation’ features two strangers during a cross-country flight and a argument which leads to a passionate infatuation. I could go on as I enjoyed all the stories as each one was so different and unique it made this anthology as a whole a fascinating read and gave me hours of entertainment reading the stories. I definitely recommend this book.

IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE (Irresistible Romance Book 3)IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Two hearts reconnaissance was a great read. And I loved how after everything Harry and Eve had been through in their lives that they were able to find themselves and each other throughout this book. Amy and Issy were so adorable. The relationship between Harry and Eve was amazing with their connection and the hardships they had to face over the years. I couldn’t picture what happened to them happening to me or my siblings but I loved this so much. And it’s all thanks to Tamara Ferguson. I can’t wait to read more.

The Player was a short book/story that I thought would be the same old story of a girl seeing a really cute hockey player then dating but after getting further into it, I loved it. It involved around the world of a hockey player his PR person and a stalker. Roy and Patience are gonna be a great couple and the connection that had from the start, ooo. But overall great read. Can’t wait to read more by Jacquie Biggar.

I’m going to continue through the rest of this book and see how many more great stories are within.

IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE (Irresistible Romance Book 3) this is one of my favorite ways to find new to me authors. I love when they come together and share their love of writing for us readers. Each of these stories brings something unique to the collection I found myself completely lost in each individual story world the authors created. Each one has something different to offer readers and as a whole they all had me completely hooked. The characters are complex and relatable and each storyline is incredible. I love when I can read several short stories that still pack a punch. Each author did a wonderful job of writing stories involving romance and all that we enjoy about it. I did have a few favorites such as Two Hearts’ Reconnaissance, The Player and Unexpected Packages each of these stories captured a piece of my heart. That’s not to ignore all the other great stories because I truly loved each one for different reasons. I’m giving this set a big five star review and highly recommend it. And I can’t wait to find more from these authors. Thank you for coming together for this set!

Red Riding Hood (Down the Rabbit Hole) Anthology – Review by Karyn Taylor

Red Riding HoodRed Riding Hood by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Red Riding Hood (Down The Rabbit Hole) is an anthology of 12 different authors writing their version of Red Riding Hood. It covers several different genre’s including romance, erotica and horror. I am not going to review all of the stories but have chosen my 2 favourites to talk about. They are Ruby by Autumn Sand and Cloaked by Lia Fairchild.
In Ruby by Autumn Sand, Ruby is a writer who is going through a divorce and is recovering from breast cancer. Her boss sends her to interview Count Edric Moreau of Paris who is known as the Wolf of Europe. Edric has taken over as the head of Moreau International and is known for seducing other millionaires and billionaires wives.
The chemistry between the 2 is instant but Ruby is determined that she will not fall for his charms. Should she be afraid of the big bad wolf?
I really enjoyed this story. In true Autumn Sand’s style it is erotic and titillating.
In Cloaked by Lia Fairchild, Eva Chacon has been searching for her grandfather for 6 years. Most of her family had been wiped out when a war with another crime family got heated. While working as a nurse she thinks she has found him. As she tries to get to know him she also comes into contact with Luke. Is Luke all he seems?
This story is quite dramatic and suspenseful and will keep you glued. Luckily it’s not a very long story and you can devour it all in one sitting. It was the first time I had read work by this author and this little tidbit has made me want more.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Irresistible Valentine was a great 5 start compilation of nine Valentine Romance stories and the third installment in the Irresistible Romance series.

Two Hearts Reconnaissance by Tamara Ferguson is about Eve and Harry. We get another great story written around Crystal Rock where these two grew up together. We go past to present as we get the back story. Can these two find their love again now that they are back in Crystal Rock?

The Player by Jacquie Biggar tells Roy’s story. Roy is a hockey player that has someone stalking him and causing bad PR for him. Patience is introduced into the story as a PR person, she is hired to help Roy. As these two spend more time together the closer they become. Will these two end up together and get a HEA? I would love more from these two.

Overall I really enjoyed all of the stories in the series. I was introduced to a couple of new authors and plan to read more from them. This collection has something for everyone to enjoy. You can read a story here and there without having to commit to reading the whole book in one sitting. Thank you to all the great authors for all the stories, I suggest 1-clicking and getting started today.

Stein (Author), Darlene Tallman (Author), Jess Bagnall (Author), Kay Elle Parker (Author), Laci Paige (Author), Lia Fairchild (Author), Lorah Jaiyn (Author). In these stories there is something for everyone and the genre they like to read. The stories include everything from romance, reverse harem, paranormal, and horror to name a few. A few of the authors were familiar to me while others were something new. These are quick stories and entertaining to read.
Ruby by Autumn Sand is romantic and inspiring all at once. Ruby has a lot of challenges in her life and still has so much strength to keep going. I really enjoyed this character and her story.
Cloaked by Lia Fairchild was a fantastic up to date retelling of Red Riding Hood. The main characters of Vanessa and Luke are fun to read. This is a fast paced story that I read in one sitting and left me wanting more.

Red Riding HoodRed Riding Hood by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

When I first saw this anthology I was intrigued, I love these adult retellings of fairy tales so I was looking forward to that but for all of them to be of Red Riding Hood I wasn’t so sure but I have to say they were all great reads! I can’t believe they are all based on the same story but every single on is different! When I looked down the list of authors who feature in the anthology I was excited to see one of my favourites, Autumn Sand, along with some I have read books by and some who were new to me!

Ruby by Autumn Sand
In this author’s true style I was hooked into the story straight away – it was romantic, sensual – everything I would expect from her! I really liked Ruby, her character came alive as the author did an amazing job with her characters visualisation – I felt like I was right there at times in the story. I was in awe of Ruby at times, she had so much going in her life both health wise and in relationship but she had a strength that I admired. This was probably my favourite story out of the anthology.

Cloaked by Lia Fairchild
I love Ms Fairchild’s work so I was excited to see how she would retell Red Riding Hood. I loved the romance/thriller genre for this story and it was a really exciting read! The characters were well thought out and I really enjoyed the story. It was fast paced and thrilling. There were some good twists and turns with Vanessa (Eva) and Luke! This was definitely a favourite of mine in the anthology.

Red Riding Hood (Down the Rabbit Hole) Anthology – Review by Chantelle Smith

Red Riding HoodRed Riding Hood by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You never really think that classic tale can be made even better by having a retelling, but these 12 incredible authors have done exactly that!

They have brought us along on numerous different unique journeys with different characters and captivating storylines for each! Each of these brings us a different genre whether that’s romance, fantasy, paranormal & erotica but no matter what you can be guaranteed that you will not put this read down!
I love reading anthology’s they really help you experience different authors writing in one place but I always find that one or two reads that always stays with me the most and in this case its an author I am familiar with, Autumn Sand, and a new author Lia Fairchild both of these authors have created a brilliant read that was captivating and had me hooked from the very beginning, both of these reads were different one was filled with danger, suspense and romance, and the other had romance, second chances and me feeling all emotional. I couldn’t compare them together but one thing I do know is that each had me hooked and not wanting it to end!

I loved reading this anthology and can’t recommend it enough! I can’t wait to experience these authors writing again! I highly recommend this read, you won’t want to miss it!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Irresistible Valentine (Irresistible Romance Book 3). This is an anthology written by nine amazing authors!! I love these types of books!! You get to enjoy different stories and have a chance to find new authors. Two of my favorite books in this anthology were:

Two Hearts Reconnaissance by Tamara Ferguson. I have read mostly all of Ms. Ferguson’s books and I have loved them all!!! I absolutely love second chance romances. And that is just what Eve and Harry’s book is. This was an emotional story, very good friends, lose touch and years later find their way back to each other. You can’t help but hope for Eve and Harry to find their happiness.

The Player by Jaquie Biggar. I love sports romance stories, so this one was right up my alley. A sexy, hockey player, a crazy, ex-girlfriend and a PR agent….. will his career be saved or will the ex get her way? This one is sure to keep you interested.
