Things are not going his way so he becomes desperate and does something that could get his boys taken away from his permanently.Taylor does her best to support him but it's like hitting a wall when he won't accept her help. Just when you think they have enough on their hands with the boys the ex-wife and their relationship someone is out to kill them. Who is it? The ex-wife's new husband or a rival motorcycle club or something else. There's a lot going on in this book but it's nice to see some family dynamic with the two boys of Slade's and Taylor and Slade's relationship growing into something permanent. Between the great sex scenes and the pulse pounding suspense scenes there's plenty to keep you reading and wanting more. Can't wait to see where Ms. Kayn takes us next!

I love Anthology books. Sometimes i know all the authors and sometimes i know none of them or a mix of both. In this one though i had only read one author previously and that is Jill Shalvis. Her being in this makes it a must buy for me hands down. I of course was not disappointed. Even in novella form Jill Shalvis delivers a part fun part emotional story with a sexy hero and of course it's Lucky Harbor. Win for me since i love the series. I've been hearing about Kristen Ashley books so i was excited to read her contribution. I had to admit i was a little lost because it seems her novella is part of a series and i have not read it. I still enjoyed it and just guessed at some of the back story. Since reading this i am looking more into Chaos series and bought book one. The other three authors i have heard of but haven't read either and it was interesting to try them out as well and see if i liked their writing style. Hope Ramsey's addition touched my heart. Such a sweet story about giving this a 2nd try and finding love. Molly Cannon's novella was fun and fabulous with a bit of a seemingly stick in the mud accountant and a full of energy organizer extraordinaire named Dinah. Last but not least is Marilyn Pappano's A Family For Christmas. Jared and Ilena will tug at your heart strings as well in this novella. Jared moved away from his disapproving parents to be a pediatrician in rural Oklahoma and didn't expect to fall in love with a sweet sexy elf with a baby and a bit of a sad story. Overall I enjoyed all the short stories in this anthology and i would recommend it to anyone who hasn't read these authors and find out what you've been missing.

Camp Taji, Iraq
Sergeant First Class Reza Iaconelli had seen better days. He closed his eyes, wishing he was anywhere but curled up on the latrine floor in the middle of some dirty, shitty desert. The cold linoleum caressed his cheek, soothing the sensation of a billion spiders creeping over his skin. He had to get up, to get back to his platoon before someone came looking for him. Running patrols through the middle of Sadr City was so much better than being balled up on the bathroom floor, puking his guts out.
He’d sacrificed his dignity at the altar of the porcelain god two days ago when they’d arrived in northern Baghdad. It was going to be a rough deployment; that was for damn sure. Dear Lord, he’d give anything for a drink. Anything to stop the madness of detox. Why the fuck was he doing this to himself? Why did he pick up that godforsaken bottle every single time he made it home from this goddamned war?
The walls of the latrine echoed as someone pounded on the door. It felt like a mallet on the inside of a kettle drum inside his skull. “Sarn’t Ike!”
Reza groaned and pushed up to his hands and knees. He couldn’t let Foster see him like this. Couldn’t let any of his guys see him like this. “You about ready? The patrol is gearing up to roll.”
Holy hell. He dry heaved again, unable to breathe until the sensation of ripping his guts out through his throat passed. After a moment, he pushed himself upright and rinsed out his mouth. He’d definitely seen better days.
He wet his brown-black hair down and tucked the grey Army combat t-shirt into his uniform pants. Satisfied that no one would know he’d just been reduced to a quivering ball of misery a few moments before, he headed out to formation, a five- to seven-hour patrol through the shit hole known as Sadr City in his immediate future.
He was a goddamned sergeant first class and he had troops rolling into combat. They counted on him to do more than show up. They counted on him to lead them. Every single day.
Maybe by the time he reached thirty days in country, he’d stop heaving his guts up every morning. But sick or not, he was going out on patrol with his boys.
The best he could hope for was that he wouldn’t puke in the tank.

He’ll help unleash the new woman in her…
Special Ops soldier Griffin Reid doesn’t exactly have happy memories of growing up in Sunshine, Idaho. He’s only come back to recover from a war injury, and while he refuses to admit he’s in a weakened state, he finds comfort in the last person he’d expect.
Kate Evans teaches fourth grade science in Sunshine, the place she’s always called home. Dreaming of graduate school and a happily-ever-after, she’s desperate to break out of the monotony of Sunshine. Luckily, a certain sexy man has just come back into her life.
To Griffin, Kate as always been his little sister’s friend, but now he’s finding her to be so much more. As both attempt to forge their paths, they must decide if their passionate connection can turn into something lasting…
This is the much anticipated ( by me anyway) book 4 in the Animal Magnetism series. The count down to release day took forever! Griffin Reid is back in Sunshine with a pretty bad set of injuries he doesn't want anyone to know about. It's convenient his sister is getting married and so he can use that for cover for a while until he can figure out what he's going to do now that he's out of the military. Kate Evans is Griffins sisters best friend. She's also a teacher and she's a huge giver. Gives her time all over the place so much so she forgets to give to herself. Kate has had her eye of Griff for a long time but he's been away so long and she's a nervous wreck around him. Whenever she's nervous she spouts off all kinds of scientific facts which is hilarious. There are worse things she could do you know? Griff adores her but doesn't want to put all his internal stuff on her door. Kate wants to let loose though and she decides Griff is the perfect man for the job. Their relationship is a great mix of sweet and sexy. Griff helps Kate with her family her class and anything else he can and Kate is just there for him. The chemistry between these two is crazy intense! Jill Shalvis does not disappoint with her wonderful characters and witty dialog. This is the kind of book you can't wait to read and you plow through it and love it and then wish you could forget it so can read it all over for the first time all over again!
One of the funniest parts that made me laugh i bet it makes you laugh too.
" Our earlobes line up with out nipples." He grinned. " Why miss Evans. You said nipples."

Silicon Valley actuary Ann Smith is an expert at calculating probabilities, but lately the odds haven’t been in her favor. Two years ago her fiancé died a week before their planned Christmas wedding, leaving Ann heartbroken and alone. When a friend suggests heading up to Lake Tahoe for a long Christmas weekend of skiing, wine, and relaxation, Ann thinks it might be just the thing to help get her life back on track. But Ann’s plans go awry when her friend cancels at the last minute, and Ann ends up driving to Tahoe with Chase Deckert, a sexy snowboarder who pushes all her buttons.
Chase Deckert is a man who lives by his own rules. A few years ago his business partner betrayed him by selling out their biomedical research for a quick profit. Chase left science far behind, and now spends his days snowboarding in Tahoe, wanting nothing to do with the dog-eat-dog world of Silicon Valley. Chase has closed his mind and his heart and only believes in one thing: fate. But fate seems to be in a giving mood, because joining him for Christmas is a brave, beautiful woman who shows him the true meaning of the season and helps him rediscover a part of himself he’d long forgotten.
Fueled by the mountain scenery, the season, and their unbelievable chemistry, Ann and Chase end up learning more about each other—and themselves—than they ever imagined possible. Can one long, steamy Christmas help them realize they’re meant to be together? Or when the holiday is over will they be right back where they started?
Ann Smith is recovering from a huge personal loss. So far she's just been trudging a long only living but looking for the way back to life. Her fiance died suddenly 2 years ago right before Christmas when they were supposed to get married. Instead of a wedding it became a funeral. How do you recover from that? Chase Deckert is also recovering but from a very different situation. Chase was a scientist and when his business partner stole all his research on Malaria and ran with it he decided he had enough and retreated from life to slopes in Tahoe. He wasn't in it for the money he just wanted to help people. Brought together inadvertently by a friend right before Christmas when Chase gives Ann a ride up to Tahoe to share his cabin sparks fly. This was a great read. The characters felt real. Chase is so gentle with Ann but finds out she's the tough one not him. Even though she's scared she doesn't let it slow her down or keep her from doing things she wants to do. Chase is stuck in a rut. When Ann offers more at the end of their time together will be let go of the past or run? I was on the edge of my seat wondering what he'd do. This book was a delight from start to finish. An emotional and satisfying read!
