4.5 Stars!

Xio Axelrod's Toothpaste Kisses, which is one of the two MM stories included in the book, was a delightful read. Mal and Pell had amazing chemistry and while they seemed very different, they complemented each other's personalities quite nicely and really, those kisses were just uber yummy! I was left wanting more, but in a very good way. I just didn't want their story to end even if it was very satisfying.

Elle Kennedy's Say Yes was amazing as well, very fun and hotter than hell, Emilia and Evan/Dirk were so good together and I adored the epilogue and Marcy, Emilia's BFF!

Sierra Simone's Broken Hallelujah was a bit of a surprise because I wasn't expecting it to be FF, still, it was very well written and angsty and while I didn't particularly care for Devon and felt she didn't atone for her sins enough, I did want a HEA for Jacey, so there's that.

Leslie McAdam's Think I'm in Love wasn't exactly my favorite, not because it wasn't well-written, but mostly because I wanted to throat-punch Shane. I hated how he treated Randy and I was disappointed that Randy was so hung up on him. I felt Randy deserved more, even if I wanted to slap some sense into him, too. It's one thing to be in love with Shane, but something else completely to just let the other guy walk all over him. Still, for a short story to elicit such strong feelings in me, you know it has to be good, LOL.

This anthology has a bit of everything, MF, MM, FF, angsty, fun, sweet stories, some sexier than others, but all very well written and engaging. I loved that they weren't really short stories, but of a length that gave enough room for the reader to get to know the characters and their stories. And truly, getting so many amazing stories by so many fantastic authors for this price, it's a steal, so go get your copy, you won't regret it!
