In this anthology you get six different stories by six authors. Each story is most definitely packed with steamy scenes with a lot of cowboy goodness. Since the stories are so short there isn’t much more to them. They did a good job with describing and characterizing, especially the cowboys! I just wish there's more story and less sex. My favorite story is Tied and Taken by BA Tortuga. The mystery of these two and how they are brought together again by sheer luck is great!
As the saying goes, be careful what you wish for...you may get it!
When a sexually frustrated girl has had enough moralizing from outsiders, her deepest desires are spoken aloud. Willing to get it on with the Devil himself, Jess's wish materializes in the form of the handsomest hunk she's ever seen, claiming to be exactly that! But to experience heavenly pleasure, she must first go to Hell.
The pace of this story is fast, fun and fiery, as one might expect with a title like "The Devil Made Me Do It". However, it doesn't take a lot of convincing before Jess disappears with sexy Satan to the depths of Hell in a puff of smoke! But the trip is well worth it, dispelling any of her previous notions of what Hell and the Devil are all about. The Devil's character is a little more complex, revealing not only a sensitive side but also a bit of an identity crisis, making him all the more adorable. The conversation over what name Jess is to call him causes him some embarrassment, and is one of many comedic moments in the story that I found very enjoyable. In any case, he certainly doesn't disappoint her in the pleasure department!
Though short, this little tale poses an interesting viewpoint on Heaven vs Hell, Good vs Bad, and the potentially thin line between them that is only a matter of perspective. Crossing it can be one Hell of a sexy ride!
