Heat level: sweet to sensual

I received a copy from one of the authors for an honest review. There has been no compensation.

Technically, I will be reading this collection throughout the year, but I wanted to go ahead and get a review out since I’ve finished one story and am on another in the collection (which I happen to have a separate InstaFreebie of as well). Some of the books in the collection actually have their own pages on Goodreads and Amazon and I figured if I do the collection little by little, I can also review the individual stories. That said, this doesn’t mean I can’t review what I’ve read so far.

What I decided to read first was Lexi Ostrow’s Something Borrowed. I’ve read a lot of Ostrow’s work and I am a fan of her work. She is an Indie author who specializes in erotic fiction, but all of her work deals with romance and characters. The sex scenes are steamy, but the romance between her characters is what makes her stories work.

Something Borrowed starts with a wedding and ends with a wedding. It’s like a double dose of romantic bliss and a bridezilla in the mix. The male lead is Jaxon, the Marine brother of the first bride, Kailey. If he wasn’t fictionally married in the end and was completely smitten with Adrianna, I would try to pull his fine ass out of the book.

Alas, Adrianna has the yummy morsel and she is well deserving. Yes, she acts like a woman in the midst of pitter patter love, but it doesn’t change her. She is a newsanchor and keeps her cool in times of extreme stress. These two people seem like completely normal everyday people and I love that.

I would say more, but really . . . that would be spoiling. Instead, I will add that I’m now reading Meryton Matchmakers book one by Kristi Rose. It is also in the collection and is a modern retelling of a personal favorite, Pride and Prejudice. 

Needless to say, this collection has a lot of different voices and different characters to keep my romantic heart pumping. 20 is a large number and it’s going to take me a while, but . . . so far, I’m loving the journey.
