Review by Candy:
I read three of the 10 stories in this anthology.
Shutter Speed by Freya Barker: It’s a HEA kind of story with a twist. Isla meets Ben at the family campground where she’s managing for awhile. Ben’s there undercover and can’t help but be intrigued by Isla. One night they spend together and then the next they spent weeks apart because she finds out his job without explanation. Can Ben win Isla back with the time she’s had to adjust the information?
Mantis by Courtney Shockley: Well everyone knows the female mantis is like the black window, she mates then kills. Gabby and Rosa are a pair of mantis’ but are soulmates. To feed the urges they must have sex with men to quell those urges, but there is someone watching. Z makes Gabby believe he’s a friend when he saves her but he has ulterior motives. As Gabby looks at Rosa her life in the balance what will come of these two at the hands of Z?
Dirty Secrets by Sills Webb: Josh is incarcerated because he’s loyal to his friend but his friend isn’t who he thought he was. Can Josh save himself from his prison sentence or will he remain in hell?
Each author has a different way if writing but will drag you into the story and have you wanting more. This anthology is filled with Live, Lies, & Crime so you get a bit if everything.
