Entangle Me – Sydney by Maggie Way

I was supposed to marry the man of my dreams, ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after, but somehow it all unraveled like a ball of yarn. I just don’t know who pulled the thread.

She taught me that crying is not only ugly, but it is also a waste of mascara. The last time I cried was when my grandmother, Betty, died. I was wearing waterproof mascara, though.

To say it out loud is tragic. Maybe I just didn’t notice, or I chose not to notice but our sex life over the years went from the Amazon Rainforest to the Sahara Desert – hot and exotic to dry and welled up.

Of course I have to talk like an idiot, how else are you going to understand me?

Gentle giant, they used to call him in high school. Huge, colossal tool is more like it.

 

Sweetest Mistake by Amy Olle

I wasn’t complaining. A quiet woman is like a mild winter. Both a rare and welcome relief.

It was the most special kiss of her life. The most special, intimate moment with a man that she’d ever experienced. So naturally, he had to ruin it. He pulled back. Smug satisfaction chased the heat from his face. ‘So, how do you like me now?’

He was a Harley Davidson when she needed training wheels, but she wouldn’t let her ignorance rob her of the chance to ride such a supreme vehicle.

You’re a piranha… A small fish with a big bite.

Wedding Gift by Gemma Brocato

That’s me.  I came, I saw, I understated.  I like it.  Think I’ll put that on a T-shirt.

She’d been a cheerleader and so damn pretty it had been hard to look at her.  Stringing two words together in her presence had all by required divine intervention.

Men are basically boys at heart.  And what boy doesn’t want a dog?

The expectation in the air was thicker than fudge and not nearly as tasty

 

Consolation Prize by Abbie St. Claire

My water broke in the middle of the night, and I was happy one of us remained calm. And yes, that was me.

My Review:

You would think a wedding planner would have THE perfect wedding, and within the pages of Entangle Me – Sydney, the character of Lacey was on-track for just that… but during the rehearsal dinner, Lacey learned her love of six years had someone else in play. Cue record scratch. Despite the heartbreaking premise, the storyline also includes amusing banter and humorous inner musings. I enjoyed the characters and Ms. Ways writing style. The storyline was highly entertaining and easy to follow.

When I wasn’t smirking from the clever hits of humor, my heart was constricted in a vise while reading the intensely emotive story of Sweetest Mistake by Amy Olle.  It was an intriguing and engaging character study.   The story was thoughtful, poignantly written, occasionally frustrating, frequently heartbreaking, smartly insightful, and observant of human nature.

Gemma Brocato also provided a highly relevant, sizzling, and thoughtful read with Wedding Gift.  The writing squeezed my heart and triggered an interest to learn more about therapy animals.  The main character was a military hero who returned from deployment with a wicked case of survivor’s guilt and PTSD, which was derailing his integration back into civilian life and causing him to question the wisdom of going through a long-planned wedding to the love of his life.  His fiance’s gift of a therapy dog proved invaluable and life changing.  And Ms. Brocato’s sensual scenes were scorching hawt.

And speaking of atomically hot sensual scenes, Abbie St. Claire is a genius and I am a total fan girl.  Consolation Prize was steamy, easy to read, contemporary, and immensely enjoyable. I wanted to personally know this couple and belong in their circle of friends as they seem lively and good fun. The only possible complaint I can raise about Ms. St. Claire’s contribution to the anthology was that I wanted it to keep going into infinity, and was ever so sad to reach the end.
