My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Askew Ever After by Aubrey Wynne was a great 5 star read.
I really enjoyed this collection of romance stories, you get all sorts of different stories: friends to lovers, rocker, RomCom and so much more. You can read a story here and there as you have time.

One of my favorites was Paper Love from Aubrey Wynne. I really loved Joss and Ben. I was pulled right into their story and I loved the character’s personalities. Joss had moved to the US and when she met her friend’s brother things took a different turn for her. She hadn’t planned on finding love but their chemistry was too much to ignore. I would love to read more on these two.

Askew Ever After: A Limited Edition Romance Collection Anthology – Review by Jennifer Gordon

Askew Ever AfterAskew Ever After by Aubrey Wynne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

‘Paper Love’ by Aubrey Wynne is a sweet and heartwarming romance which had me happily turning the pages hoping that Joss and Ben would get their happily ever after. Love is the last thing on Joss Palmateer‘s mind following the sudden death of her mother. Joss is a shy and gentle women who grew up in a Papua New Guinea mission and as well as the death of her mother she’s getting over an ex boyfriend’s betrayal and a house move. So when Joss is introduced to her friends brother, Ben at a party although the attraction is instant she politely declines his offer of a date. However physical therapist Ben Montgomery is determined that Joss will not ignore his advances for long and although usually known as a player, Ben finds himself falling in love with Joss. With the aid of a stray homing pigeon and an old origami legend Ben does all he can to win her love. This is a fairly short read but one which has a real feel good factor. I liked how the author has included an explanation about the importance of the origami at the beginning of the book. I loved Joss and Ben who were both likeable and relatable characters and they were really bought to life by the descriptive narrative. Their chemistry also really came across in the story as did Joss’s trepidation at risking her heart for love. A lovely, enjoyable and engaging read.

Askew Ever After: A Limited Edition Romance Collection (Paper Love by Aubrey Wynne) – Review by Roxsanne Lesieur

Askew Ever AfterAskew Ever After by Aubrey Wynne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an anthology of romance, from historical to contemporary, from rock stars to cowboys, office romances and fated love, as well as a forbidden love and men showing their alpha and softer sides.

First, a rockstar made a choice which could have landed either him or the woman he loved in jail, he chose her and has to live with it until a chance meeting with her where he has to make another hard choice.

Second, a woman makes a decision which could either be the worst thing she could have done or the best thing that could happen to her, but which is it?

Third, next a big city girl has a thing for cowboys and when her best friend gets engaged to one, she decides a fling of her own is needed, but will she be able to leave him behind to go back to her big city life afterwards?

Fourth down the line is someone who wants to rewrite their life to make it something better as it falls apart around them, but what kind of life will it be and will it be any better than their current one?

Fifth one along is a second chance romance between past loves, when one is brought back to his hometown under sad circumstances and runs into an old flame in a flower shop, will their pasts be too much to overcome, or will they be able to give each other that second chance after all?

The sixth is a friendship to love story, but can the friendship remain while the love is there, or will tomorrow be too late to find out?

Number seven is a story where a single night will change a woman forever, but is the mysterious businessman she has connected with going to make her life better or worse once it ends?

Eighth on the list is my personal favourite, a tale of a man trying to win over his sister’s best friend, but she isn’t someone to open her heart after grief seals it away. She is not the normal girl he would go for and he is intrigued by her wild and exotic nature and the chase is something he cannot resist, but she is wary that he is a player and only after one thing, can he prove to her that she is everything he wants and needs, or will she run a mile? This is a slow burn romance with a playful and charming pigeon as a bonus.

Ninth in the series is a tale of murder, after ten years away from her hometown and a dead ex-colleague in her shop, a woman must work with a ghost from her past to solve the mystery and find a murderer, but will they do it before someone else gets hurt?

Tenth is a god who has observed the creation of the universe and held it in his hands, observed the wonders within it, but can one small and delicate thing, love, derail the Godcode and destroy everything he has seen?

Second to last is set in a summer camp where an assistant is hired and their boss is preparing for a civil, but uncomfortable few months with them, however, when revelations begin, will it stay that way, or will things work out in the end?

Finally, a coffee shop waitress catches the eye of a billionaire CEO and he will stop at nothing to make her his, but will she fall for his money and charm, or after a night of conversation, food and passion, will she still refuse to be bought?

A collection of romances with something for everyone inside it, if you are looking for a book with happily ever after’s, then this could be the one for you.

There are quite a few hours of pleasurable reading to be had here, with something to suit all romantics.
I have read a few of these author’s work before and love what they do. But most of the authors were new-to-me, so I really enjoyed exploring their work, getting a feel for what they do, and having more authors and books to add to my TBR. All the stories are really great- so do yourself a favour and grab a copy and start exploring the numerous enticing stories this anthology has to offer.

There is a wide variety of stories (and elements) such as contemporary romance, second chances, sister’s bestfriend, friends to lovers, romcom, holiday/Christmas, billionaire, historical/regency, drama, chemistry, finding love unexpectedly, emotion, suspense, interesting and likeable characters- and so much more.
Just to mention a couple of my favourites-
Paper Love (A Chicago Christmas Book #2) by Aubrey Wynne was such a cute and sweet holiday romance. I really enjoyed meeting Joss and Ben- they really were perfect together. I was immediately intrigued by this story because I also grew up in Papua New Guinea- spending the first 12 years of my life there, so the fact that Joss had grown up there built an immediate connection with her- then add Ben into the mix and the story really ‘sang’. I loved the pigeon and origami elements- they added another element of interest to the storyline.
Second Chance is the conclusion to the Flowers In December trilogy by Jane Suen. This sweet story is all about second chances- with a very realistic and believable storyline. Ms. Suen definitely saved the best till last, as this is my favourite of the three books, for sure.
I am happy to recommend this Anthology! It is worth every cent of the purchase price- 23 books for the price of one…. Now that’s what I call a fantastic deal!
Happy Reading!

Thank you to all the contributing authors!

Paper Love by Aubrey Wynne is the only story I read in this anthony collection of stories, and it was a great read! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this sweet romantic story. It was also a very quick read. I loved the characters and the storyline. The bird, Charlie, was so cool, because he (or she) had so much personality for a bird, it was awesome! I loved the story of the cranes, I learned something new because I had never heard of that legend before, and it is very romantic! I can’t wait to read more from this author in the future.
