From Goodreads:Ready, Set, Jett by Lori Foster
A vacation from her no-strings romance with her sexy next-door neighbor. That’s what Natalie Alexander needs to get her head—and heart—together. But her solo trip south turns into a disaster when gorgeous Jett Sutter turns up with another challenge.
Gail’s Gone Wild by Susan Donovan
Single mom Gail Chapman insists on chaperoning her teenage daughter’s spring-break trip to Key West. But she never expects to face temptation—in the hunky form of Jesse Batista, the mysterious man in the cottage next door.
Just One Taste by Victoria Dahl
All-work-and-no-play businessman Eric Donovan won’t be distracted by a “businesswoman” who’s all wrong for him. Beth Cantrell owns a women’s erotica shop! And she has a juicy little secret. Can she tempt him to put pleasure before business for once?
Bought for Myself
Overall Anthology Rating 4.0
NOTE: I am going to do mini-reviews for these 3 stories since they were short. I will admit I am usually not a fan of the novella but I really liked all 3 stories. These authors aren’t familiar to me (new to contemporary romance) but I will be checking them all out in the future!
Ready, Set, Jett by Lori Foster: 4.25 Rating
Can I have some Jett next door to me please? I actually read When You Dare before reading this so I already really liked Jett/Natalie together. That being said, I really liked their romance. Do I wish the story was longer? You betcha! Do I think Lori managed to do their romance justice in just a few pages? Yep! This is my favorite of the 3 stories in the anthology.
Gail’s Gone Wild by Susan Donovan: 3.75 Rating
Gail has gone wild and she did it just the right way. I have to say this story made me grin because it gave hope to all us over 35+ single crowd out there. I loved her and Jesse’s whirlwind romance probably even more because of her daughter’s reaction to the whole thing. Mom got her groove back in a big way and it was fun to read!
Just One Taste by Victoria Dahl: 4.00 Rating
I think this is part of a series that I am going to have to pick up now! Eric is the kind of guy we all dream of hoping to catch the eye of. Though he works a little to hard, his life gets altered by just the right gal: Beth. This was the funniest of the 3 stories. This one does not have an HEA though so just be aware!
Overall I recommend this anthology to any Contemporary Romance reader especially if you are reading Lori Foster’s series. I am sure that is true about Victoria Dahl’s series too!
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
