In this new anthology, where you’d think darkness reigns supreme, but it’s more about women empowerment and how women find their own happy endings…or beginnings.
This anthology is jammed pack with short stories, prequels, and novellas. Here is a look at just a few I reviewed:
Len Webster’s Juniper;
Len is a fantastic writer of angsty love triangles. Juniper has been in love with her friend Benny forever, but Benny has recently fallen in love with Darsha. This new development hasn’t lessened Juniper’s feelings any, but tell that to her best friend. While Juniper has tried her best to shove those feelings in a box, it doesn’t help when she has to see him making kissy face with his girlfriend. While it’s been almost a year and Juniper knows she needs to move on it’s easier said than done. However, when she meets Brandt, he might be the answer to finally starting a new path. Could this be the beginning of Len’s famous triangle?? While she doesn’t mention this continuing in a bigger book, it does have all the lovely components of a Webster angsty novel, so I’m hopeful to see these characters again.
Kelsie Rae’s Samantha;
A second chance love story. This novella is sweet and steamy all rolled into one second chance romance. Phoenix and Sam were best friends until Phoenix moved away ten years ago, but neither ever forgot the other. When they were just six years old they made a pact to marry one another on their twenty-fifth birthdays. Phoenix is now a rock star and Samantha is just an ordinary girl living in LA, they shouldn’t have the opportunity to run into one another, much less think about a pact they made almost twenty years ago, but can birthday wishes come true? This particular story, or at least these characters do continue in Kelsie’s next book.
