"The Perfect Anthology!"

Good anthologies are a joy to read especially when I am a fan of the authors who are a part of the anthology I'm asked to review. This is one such anthology. I enjoyed each and every story. They were all different but they all made me squirm in my seat!

Some Like It Hot by Lori Foster is the first story. Doctor Cary Rupert has been lusting after his friend Axel's nurse Nora for ages. She won't give him the time of day and she dresses in the frumpiest clothes. Then Cary finds out she's widowed. What can he do to at least make her go out with him and get to know him? He'll just have to keep working at it.

One Wilde Weekend is by Janelle Denison and this hot story tells us how Alex Wilde finally gets his Dana to commit. He sets up the perfect romantic weekend. Now all he has to do is convince Dana that he wants forever with her.

Blue Crush by Erin McCarthy was HOT. Serious Sara, the pediatrician, just wants one night to be Sexy Sara. All she wants is one perfect night with a surfer dude or even a lifeguard. Then she loses her bikini top in the water and a storm is blowing in fast. Kyle, head lifeguard, sees a blonde head bobbing in the surf and goes to rescue her. He can't believe his luck or is it luck?

My Thief by MaryJanice Davidson was just a hoot to read. John Crusher goes into his hotel room to be attacked by a gorgeous hot woman. She tells him to strip and get into bed immediately! Next thing John knows is the manager of the hotel is knocking at the door looking for whoever cracked the hotel safe. John is very suspicious but plays along. When the woman decides to leave, John won't let her. She tells him her name is Robin and she did not steal anything but her own property. John knows there's more to the story but will he be able to get it out of Robin?

Hot and Bothered by Kayla Perrin is the next story. Trey Arnold's wife Jenna left him two years ago and now she wants him to sign separation papers but he won't let her unless she comes back to Florida and gives them to him herself. Trey has a plan for getting Jenna back but will it work? He certainly hopes so because he loves her with all his heart!

Murphy's Law by Morgan Leigh tells us the story of Kat Murphy. She's had a crush on her boss Sam for years. Finally she's had enough and turns in her resignation and heads for a vacation at the beach. Sam is livid and decides that he'll confront her and find out just what's going on. What they each find out about the other surprises them both!

I immensely enjoyed each and every story in this superb anthology! I read new to me authors and old favorite authors. For an excellent read, I highly recommend this one!
