Jade Matthews is young, but she knows what she wants in a man: someone mature and kinky. A man who shares her deepest desires to have her pregnant and submissive in the bedroom. Archer Brennan aches to unleash his dark side on the too-young grocery bagger. With an ex-wife and a messy divorce threatening to destroy his pursuit of happiness, he binds himself to one rule: hands-off.
This story is so good. Jade is sweet and shy, yet she has a dark side that needs to be fulfilled. Archer is a nice guy that is dealing with a lot. He too has a dark side and he wants to explore it with Jade. I like how the story starts slowly. Archer and Jade take their time getting to know one another first. The build-up to their first encounter makes it perfect and smoking hot.

Tessa leads a boring life due to her parents strict rules and their cult like religion. She longs for more and for her freedom. Her job as a check-out store is boring and barely covers her bills leaveing her know way to have what she desires. Then the weekly visits from Trent and Brody having her daydream of being sandwiched between them. When Trent and Brody ask her on a date she decides to take a chance. Is this her chance of freedom with these two men or will this be her downfall?
Tessa’s story was different. Her parents were extremely religious and thus affects her life even though she is grown. As you start to get to know her you discover that she is dying inside and wants to break free and enjoy life without shame from her parents. Her fantasies of being with Trent and Brody make her want more. Trent and Brody are good guys and they teach her not to be ashamed of who she is and what she believes in. An interesting story with very enjoyable characters. I give the story 3 stars because I felt it needed a little more heat since this is a menage.
This is a collection of short stories where the best bad boys are featured. This collection has six short stories about Bad Boys. Some I loved, some I liked but overall all, a great collection of stories. I gave this a 4 because I felt that the boys in each story weren’t as bad as I was hoping. To me they were a little tame especially for what the title offered.
Unrepentant by Lila Shaw: Amy Burns has won the lottery, but instead of this being good her family is driving her crazy with wanting a handout. She moves west for a new start. This is where she meets Jazz at the local gym. The two form an instant attraction however she is unsure if she can trust him since he’s an ex-con. I really liked the story. Great story and the chemistry between the two was off the charts.
Over the Edge by Stella Berkley: Roman wants Sloane, the only problem is that she has belonged to his best friend. So that makes her off limits. Sloane wants Roman and all the kink he has to offer, however he won’t touch her because she used to be with his best friend. Then one night changes everything for them. This is another good story for me. I love the inner struggle Roman has with himself wanting to do the right thing but yet not wanting to give in to Sloane. All in all a great story.
Death’s Angel by Kastil Eavenshade: Constantine, an incubus is hurting. Four years ago he lost his love because of a vampire. Now he has vowed revenge. Constantine has managed to get captured and is tortured and teased. This is where he meets Indira, she is half-werewolf. The two of them must stay together if they want to escape and survive. However the overwhelming lust they feel consumes them and they end up together, surprising them both. This is the only paranormal story out of the six and I liked it a lot. You have two different species that work well together. Made for a great read.
Finding Forever by Lynn Burke: Sam is a love them and leave them kind of girl. One day at the supermarket, a god like Zeus walks in and she wants a piece of him. However when she discovers this god is Jason, the boy who drove her teenage hormones wild she decides to have a little fun. After one night together it seems they can’t get enough of one another. I enjoyed this story. Long lost crush comes back and they see where it goes. All in all a great read.
Temptations of the Cage by R. Brennan: Katrina needs a job to help support her ailing grandmother. So she applies for a job as a waitress for a local BDSM club. This is where she meets owner Damien. The two of them have an instant connection however he doesn’t date the employees so she must decide, her job or the man? I liked this story. The inner struggle Katrina has kept me in suspense. The two have great chemistry and I wanted to see them explore it. Another great read for me.
Without Words by Lolly Tova: Ivy is heading to her high school reunion. She is dreading this since most of it was awful due to her classmates tormenting her. Her only bright time there was Ollie. Ollie now a famous rock star snags an invite to the reunion for only one purpose, Ivy. He wants to make sure that she is righted by all the people who did her wrong. Ollie has been in love with Ivy since school and nothing has changed. The two embark on something wonderful together. This is another favorite of mine. Ollie and Ivy are great together.

This is the first anthology in a long time where I hadn’t read any of the authors previously. I enjoyed these stories a lot. The writing styles were all different, as were the shifters and situations in the stories. All of the authors wrote great characters and entertaining stories. I recommend this anthology, I found new authors to follow and so will you!
