I read SIncerely, Dane by Ilsa Madden Mills and this short story was such a sweet read.

This is a cute and fun novella that is part of anthology and I hope will eventually be a full length story. Dane and Piper went to school together from high school on and now that Dane’s twin bother is married to Piper’s best friend they end up spending a lot of time together. Piper has always crushed on Dane but believes he has her firmly placed in the friend zone that she just accepts their relationship as is until one night a text makes her think about more. Dane hasn’t had it easy in life, he derailed at one point, and his relationship with Ari fizzled out because deep down I truly believe he’s always felt like Piper was his. In this story Dane comes to Piper’s apartment dressed as a werewolves and so the chaos ensues. He recruits her to help with a scavenger hunt that ends with an epic ending/beginning. The tension between them was tangible, the chemistry off the charts, and the can they will they flowed off the pages. I rally hope we get more of their story!!… (mais)

Two More Days

*A note before you slog through all of this. 1) I only listened to some of the stories. I skipped unfamiliar authors due to time constraints. B) I'm leaving this long mostly blank list as I had a hard time finding a list of the story names and authors so hopefully, I can save someone else a little time.

Tequila Mate - Author - Stars - Character Names - Review/Thoughts.

Always Cake - Max Monroe - 3 Stars - Emily, Austin - Two best friends born on the same day. They celebrate their birthdays together every year and on their 24th the night goes further than planned. Now it’s their 35th birthday and they have decided to honor the pact they made when they turned.

Confessions - Lora Richardson - Stars - Character Names - Review/Thoughts

Heels Over Head in Love - Willow Aster - Stars - Character Names - Review/Thoughts.

Second Summer - Laurelin Paige - Stars - Character Names - Thoughts/Review

Protected - Dr. Rebecca Sharp - Stars - Characters - Review/Thoughts.

The Vanished - Jennifer Wilson - Stars - CHARACTER NAMES HERE - REVIEW/THOUGHTS HERE

The Shelby - Jewel E. Ann - 3 Stars - The issue with this being an audiobook is I forget names quickly - I wasn’t expecting his tale of revenge. It was indeed sweet.

Sunshine Rae - Kandi Steiner - 2.5 Stars - Parker and ? - Just an okay story. Nothing mind blowing, just angst about being in love with your best friend who is about to propose to his girlfriend. It’s been done before and done better. Also, I didn’t really like the narrator as she sounded very juvenile.

From Friends to This - SERIES INFO - Dominique Laura - Stars - CHARACTER NAMES HERE - REVIEW/THOUGHTS HERE

The Kiss - SERIES INFO - M. Robinson - Stars - CHARACTER NAMES HERE - REVIEW/THOUGHTS HERE

Stone Heart - SERIES INFO - S. J. West - Stars - CHARACTER NAMES HERE - REVIEW/THOUGHTS HERE

Without Yesterday - Lexi Ryan - 2.5 Stars - James Cooper, Krystal aka Kris, - Honestly this I’m in a relationship but super attracted to someone else bit is not my thing. It was well written and there was no cheating, but I didn’t like the vibe.

Sincerely, Dane - Ilsa Madden-Mills - 3 Stars - Dane and Ava - A cute story. I loved the scavenger hunt and how it didn’t end the way I expected it to end.

Dark Eyes - Karina Halle - 3 Stars - Amethyst, Wolf, Shannon, Ezra - It was nice to see a PNR twist in the middle of all the contemporary stories in this anthology. This was an interesting examination of who the real monsters are. This world shows me more and more of that every day.

What If… - K. Bromberg - 3 Stars - Shiloh ”Shy”, Jake - I liked the set-up of this second chance even if it involved one leaving their fiancé (who we could all tell was wrong for her)

When It Happens - SERIES INFO - Micaela Smeltzer - Stars - CHARACTER NAMES HERE - REVIEW/THOUGHTS HERE

F*ck - Tijan - 3 Stars - Tysan Koda, Kase Crow, Aiden - Why did I find this story so hot. At first, I was disenchanted by the thought of another jerk hero but that somehow melted away.

The Dress - Colleen Hoover - 3 Stars - Can’t Remember the Names - A woman chooses herself over a superficial man. It was okay. I think I am fatigued from all of these stories.

I love anthologies. This one was really unique because of how each story started. It was interesting to see them all take a different approach to their story that fit into a plethora of romance subgenres.

Women are not stupid. That’s why they outlasted us.

Tarryn Fisher is known for her ability to tell twisted stories with a delicate eloquence. She writes such dynamic characters, and gives her female characters such as strength, wisdom, vulnerability, and makes her readers realize there is nothing wrong with having flaws. Tarryn Fisher brings this story to life in a way that only she can and presents us with the terrifying answer to what would happen if women ruled the world, and the yearning for complete control runs wild.

Willow Aster has written over 8 novels, and she has a fierce passion for writing. She brings her characters to life with as much realism and care a person can. This is my first experience reading Aster’s work, but I will definitely add her other works to my to be read list. She has intrigued me in a way that not many authors have.

With only 12 men remaining who can produce children, the world has drastically changed as it was once known. Long gone are the days of patriarchal rule. The women rule the world.

Folsom, attractive and charismatic, and literally one of very few. He is desired solely because he’s a man and can impregnate women. In fact, he has the most reliable track record of getting women pregnant. Yet, as resigned to this fate as he’s allowed himself to become- Folsom wants more.

Gwen, smart and beautiful, she wants what every woman in Red Region wants, a baby. A boy. She wants to carry a life inside her and do her part to contribute to her region. Yet, something changes within her after her turn with Folsom.

This collaboration between Tarryn Fisher and Willow Aster is so well done. They have created and deconstructed a world that is terrifying and deadly. We may think a world dominated by women is something to be desired. A world where the 12 remaining men able to impregnate women are strictly controlled and kept in check is a positive thing. But what happens to free will? What happens to love? What happens to raising boys to be polite and courteous? While women are powerful in so many ways, we see the absolute terror that can arise when the desire for total control and domination takes over.

The world spread before us is one of control, careful construction, and absolute power. This book is like The Hunger Games for adults. We briefly hear about each of the regions, and we learn that the 12 men rotated around like stud animals being put to work.

The characters’ personalities quickly shine through, and we see just how deadly this game of creating life can get. I recommend this book. I gave this book 4 out of 4 stars.
