My ARC Review:
I love a good secret baby romance, and here in this collection you have an abundance of them from a fantastic line up of authors, each offering the reader something different in these fabulous stories…. such a different range of telling a secret baby story, so many different styles, you just can’t help but love these. They are not full books, but most are between 8-12 chapters in length giving you plenty to get your teeth into.
What I love about these types of collections is that you get the chance to read an author that you may not have read, and you can get a feel for their writing style and whether it’s for you or not. Some of these authors are new to me, some are not, but I have to admit that I have enjoyed every single one of these stories….. of course some appeal more than others, but overall this collection is not something you can go wrong with!! And it’s for a great cause, so get your hand in your pocket!!
Nikki Ash opens the collection with a modern fairy tale retelling – ‘Finding Prince Charming’ – I loved this with its modern take, plenty of feels.
Lacey Black’s sporty story ‘Quarterback Keeper’ is based around a hot quarterback and a best friends sister / brothers best friend, totally forbidden and off limits, definitely pulls the heart strings.
Nicole Blanchard’s story ‘Spark’ is a strangers-to-lovers / fireman / one night stand theme based around a Cat 5 storm hitting, fireman to the rescue, reunited with his one night stand girl, lots of feels.
Jacob Chance’s story ‘My Ruin’ is a age-gap / neighbors / forbidden based around an older woman moving in next door to an 18yr old boy!
Kelsey Clayton’s story ‘Calm the Storm’ is a best friends brother / rockstar based read, hot and sexy, with a taboo element and a horrible ex involved in this one.
J.D. Holyfield’s story ‘Truth and Lies’ is a best friends / neighbors / aristocrat / arranged marriage type read, these two were made for each other, but the parents had other ideas, lots of feels!
Rebecca Jenshak’s story ‘And One’ is a sports / one night stand / college based read.
