Reckless Anthology

5-stars

The Reckless Anthology is a fabulous read from beginning until end. This anthology consists of 4 incredible novellas by 4 phenomenal authors. Layla’s Chance by Mika Jolie, Dirty Martinis by P.M. Carson, Into the Deep by Kylie Stewart and finally The Spy Who Kissed Me by Sharla Lovelace. All these books are well worth the read, however, two of them really stood out to me!

Layla’s Chance by Mika Jolie is such an amazing novella that hooked me right from the get-go. It’s steamy, sexy, romantic and oh so hot! The story flowed really well given the length and I really enjoyed this authors writing style, she was able to connect me to these characters in just a handful of chapters.

Dirty Martinis by P.M. Carson is the best novella I’ve ever read! It’s non-stop go, steamy, romantic and incredibly emotional. This novella ended much too soon for my liking as I could have continued reading about these characters for hours. I can’t wait to read more from this author in the future as I enjoyed this story so very much.

Honestly, I have no complaints about this anthology. It was phenomenal from beginning until end and I’m so happy that I dove right in. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for their next romance reads!

Reckless: A Steamy Contemporary Romance Anthology by Various Authors – Review by Anastasia Dodson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars

This is composed of four awesome novellas by four authors. All of them are new to me but after reading this I will for sure be reading more by all of them. The novellas are titled Layla’s Chance, Dirty Martinis. Into the Depp and The Spy Who Kissed Me. All of them had fantastic characters (some were freakin hilarious!!) and I just wanted to be their friends and go have a coffee date with them. Each of the four women had something big in their lives change suddenly and none of them were prepared to deal with it. It was interesting to see how they navigated through their problems and at some points I wasn’t sure if they’d make it out on the other side. Each story is amazing in its own way and I highly recommend reading this anthology!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reckless: A Steamy Contemporary Romance Anthology by Mika Jolie, Kylie Stewart, P.M. Carson and Sharla Lovelace was exactly as advertised. There were some pretty steamy moments along with moments that made you laugh, gasp and flip the page quickly to see what happens next.

Layla’s Chance by Mika Jolie is the first book in the anthology. Layla and Chance start off with major sparks between them and it doesn’t let up the entire time these together. I think most women in their thirties and forties have thought about the young hot musician, Layla actually gets him. I loved how her stories are all connected in some way and will be reading more from her.

Into The Deep by Kylie Stewart grabbed me from the very beginning of the story. I don’t know what is was about Gemma and Grayson’s story that grabbed me but it did. I think the moment on the table at his house had me fanning myself.

Dirty Martinis and the Spy Who Kissed me were also great books. I found myself getting mad at Rachel in Dirty Martinis and on the edge of my seat in Spy Who Kissed Me.

All of these stories are worth the read.

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reckless: A Steamy Contemporary Romance Anthology was as the title says, romantic, steamy and chalked full of mushy good feels.

A collection of four unique stories that tell the tales of finding love, connections and not giving up. Each story has its own take on love, from an older woman, to online dating, older man and woman to a kick as ending book that envoles spys. This anthology surly has it all, and I believe there is a story for everyone.

Okay I’m going to get it off my chest, as much as I like the other three stories, the last one, is a fav. It may or may not have something to do with it having spies. It was so fun right out of the gate, and packed full of action as well as romance. I do hope they get their own full length series, cause that would be epic.

As I said this anthology has a little bit of everything, lots of variety, and as each story closes and you move onto the next there is a distance separation. Each story has its own tone, writing style and voice. They didn’t bleed together, and as a whole each story can stand on and be sold on its own. Each character has their own quirks and special traits that made them noticeable and memorable, again, clearly showcasing each authors talent to pull in new readers; because I will be checking out more books by each.

Overall this anthology was a fun, hot, light hearted read that drew me in, kept me in, and succeeded in making me a fan of these authors. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will have a time reading this anthology and maybe developed some new author crushes.

Happy Reading

I love, love, LOVED this anthology; all four novellas were fantastic reads. I already adore one of the authors featured in this collection so I was super excited to read something new form her but the other three were new to me so I was looking forward to reading their work too. I think it’s safe to say I have found another three new authors to love and I definitely want to read more of their stories.
Layla’s Chance by Mika Jolie was such a wonderful read and a great story to kick of this anthology. I loved Layla and Chance – oh my gosh he was so hot!!! As always this author completely captivated me by her amazing writing and characters. I forgot that I was reading a novella at times because of how full the story was, I actually didn’t want it to end I was so wrapped up in Layla and Chance’s story!
Dirty Martinis by P.M. Carson was another great read. I loved reading Rachel and Drew’s story and with a lot of people meeting via online dating now I thought that this was a story that felt real to life and I could imagine the story unfolding the way it did in real life.
Into the Deep by Kylie Stewart was a fun read and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. There were some really good and unexpected twists and turns that constantly had me guessing what was going to happen. I loved Grayson and Gemma and together I really did think that they made the perfect couple!
The Spy Who Kissed Me by Sharla Lovelace was a really great read. I loved that although similar in character to the main in Layla’s Chance it was completely different. I loved the humour in this story and it certainly made me laugh a few times.
Overall a fantastic 5 star anthology that I would highly recommend!

Reckless was a great 5 star read
We get four great novella’s from four authors. Some I was familiar with and others were new to me. All of these stories pulled me right in.

Layla’s Chance (Mika Jolie)
This was a great rocker read. Layla decides to go on an impromptu trip to Martha’s Vineyard where she meets Chance. She has no idea who he is until after they have a hot and steamy evening. When she learns the truth will she stick around? These two had such a connection, I loved it. I really liked Layla and Chance and I would love to see more from them.

Dirty Martinis (P.M. Carson)
Rachel and Drew met on a dating website. They both have the same type of job that takes them all over the place. They do a lot of sexting and skyping. When they finally meet in person things take quite the emotional turn. Will meeting in person ruin what they had or can they get a HEA?

Into The Deep (Kylie Stewart)
This was my favorite in the anthology. Older man younger woman. Gemma meets Grayson and they agree to one night only, but something between them causes them to want more. We also get some drama that could cause some issues for them. I loved Grayson, what a dirty talking hot as heck man. I want to see more from these two.

The Spy Who Kissed Me (Sharla Lovelace)
Ava is a lawyer who has worked her butt off to be a partner. When she is asked to deliver a package in person she agrees, while at the airport she discovers some news that makes her change her destination. Dominic is an ex CIA agent who is following Ava, she has something he wants. He quickly discovers there is a big attraction between them. They do eventually have some steamy moments. Will Dominic get what he’s looking for? Can they have a HEA? This is a thrilling read with some danger as well.

All of these stories had great characters that you connect with instantly. They all had their own characteristics and I had some LOL moments. We get some steamy moments as well. This is a great mix of stories. Thank you to Mika Jolie, Kylie Stewart, P.M. Carson, Sharla Lovelace for giving me four great stories to read. Loved them and look forward to reading more from all of you.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reckless is group of four sexy and steamy stories by four different authors. This group of stories is hot. Each author puts their own spin of hotness into their story. The stories themselves are on the shorter side so they are easier to read. However, they are steamy, so I advise you to read in the privacy of your own home, not at work, or on the bus, or in the line at the grocery store. In your own home.

I really recommend this anthology. I will be looking for more by these authors since these stories have me wanting to read more.

Reckless-An Anthology
By Mika Jolie, Kylie Stewart, P.M. Carson, Sharla Lovelace
Rated 5 stars

This is a steam…steam….steamy group of stories. These are four stories In this book. There are three new to me authors and one whose stories I deeply enjoy. The first two are May-December romances. The third one is a dating site romance and lastly is a little action as a spy story.

All of these stories were well written and all the characters were interesting. One thing I enjoyed in all these books was how the theme of Reckless ran through them. Whether it was a person or an action, it was woven in well. Each book had some type of drama and a few made me chuckle. I am not a usual fan of May-December romances. But these were nicely done and covered a few of the issues I have with them. Although being rich might help sway some of those problems or maybe not. Dirty Martinis by P.M. Carson had me tearing up a bit. I enjoyed these characters because I really felt they took a chance and put themselves out there. The Spy who Kissed Me by Sharla Lovelace had some action and suspense which I love in a book. Plus some lovely military peeps. My favorite is Layla’s Chance by Mika Jolie. It was nice going back to visit the characters in her Martha’s Vineyard series. Last but certainly not least is Into the Deep by Kylie Stewart. This is a deliciously enjoyable and fast paced story.

This book covers quite a few different themes with one main one running through all the stories. These stories have fierce, independent females and strong, alpha males. They were all enjoyable and I would recommend to any reader who likes some spice with their story.

Four stories that are hot, steamy, action packed and hit you in the feels! An older woman with a younger rock star, ex-CIA and a lawyer, no strings on-line dating, older man and younger woman who agree to one night with no strings and no questions. What more could you ask for?!?!? The stories were all well written with great characters. Some of the authors were new to me so I will definitely be checking out more of their work!
