Review by Becky Rendon
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Romance writer Manda is on a dry spell..a Sahara like dry spell. Her characters are getting far more action than she is. For Pete's sake, she's watch her cover model hook up right this moment.
Can the hottie bearded bartender break the spell?
Wild Proposal by Angelita Gill
Your boss and secret crush goes off the grid, so you deal, because a week is no problem.
Two freaking months with no end in sight. He's not returning your calls or answering your emails.
Desperate to verify proof of life and give him a big piece of her mind, Antonia tracks him down. But that's just the beginning of her adventure and her bearded man is going to make it all worth it...
How to Kill A Lady Boner by Ace Gray
Are you one of the ones twitching because...beards? Do beards make you gag while you image the insane amount of possibilities as to what might be stuck there? Then you my dear sweet comrade need to read this story. I tackled and gagged and got embarrassingly hot reading the naughty shenanigans in this one.
Even the beard lovers have to agree, you know it's hot!
Fortune Favors the Beard by Alexis Alvarez
Confucius says...I don't freaking know but mistakes and accidents happen you just have to make the best of them.
Not sure which is worse meeting the hottest guy ever and leaving without his name or number...or seeing him again after you have made a major mistake. Yeah, not sure but never fear Alexis Alvarez will show you exactly how to handle it.
The Beard Made Me Do It by Scott Hildreth
It's true the beard really did make her do it. Fun, definitely naughty and totally worth the read. But what did she do...?
Read it...see if you'd do it too.
To Beard Or Not To Beard by J. Quist
With every new story, I swing closer to the same decision Roxy made. Which decision, you ask? Whether to beard or not to beard, of course.
Happy reading this tension filled treat.
Scruff You by Faith Andrews
When you pissed off the hipster hottie, you never know what to expect. Somehow "SCRUFF YOU" was never what Ezra expected...but then neither was she.
Theirs to Protect by Renee Rose
I wasn't sure it was possible but the farther I go in this anthology the more I likey. And momma likey lots.
Holy shit that was smoking hot! I have never read anything by Renee before but I will now. I love engage stories and this one sure does deliver.
Let me explain:
Sexually frustrated lawyer
Two smoking hot cops
Enough said, now read it. Wow, I need a cold shower.
One Kiss by Martha Sweeney
Two chance meetings
Could it be more?
You don't know his name. You know nothing but the feel of her lips. But those that is enough to consume your thoughts...
Asshole Calling by Maria Monroe
When an asshole calls, do you answer? As tempting as it is, do you or do you brush it off?
Tessa couldn't brush it off. She tried to but well....he was hot.
Talking to the Moon by Jeannine Collette
Leaving. She's leaving but has to say something because tomorrow she'll be gone. Time to say something or leave always wondering...
Thou Shalt Not Beard by Leslie McAdam
Not cool, days before the wedding he grows a scraggly beard!!!! Why?!?! He doesn't have permission.
Amelia is having a tough time adjusting to the new face fuzz on Ryan. Or is it more? Will it be to beard do we part?
Background Noise by RC Martin
You want sweet and sexy, then Background Noise will make you smile. It will also give you the giddy school girl giggles. Make you warm from the inside out as long as you be brave!
Small town girl and a man that she can't get off her mind
An attraction that defies all sense...everything else is Background Noise.
Rough and Reckless by Hailey Caiman
I was actually surprised that this is the first MC book in the anthology. Figured beards...bikers...naughty fun
Well, enjoy this good girl and an MC Prospect getting into more than they bargained for. But definitely no regrets!
First Class Distraction by Ruthie Henrick
Well hello hot stuff! I might have trouble next time I get on a plane. I'm never in first class but that was as Hell of a distraction!
Wow, I definitely need to fly this airline in the future!
Opening Hearts by Jerica MacMillan
I feel likely a sneaky cheat because I just read Managed Hearts so I know where this goes. But for you all that haven't, it's a sneak peek at the beginning of a...tense situation.
Hometown Prince by Evie Lauren
I'm in love with the Hometown Prince. Every girl dreams about the best friend...the guy who has been by your side for everything. Yeah, it's hot and sexy and sweet- if only he felt the same way.
Lucky for her!
All or Nothing by M. Andrews
Well it seems M. Andrews likes the boys in blue too. Hot cop visiting a bakery for donuts might have led to a chuckle if it weren't for the absolute feel of sex rolling off of him from the get go. Wow oh wow, I would love to be his.
Confessions of a Beard Lover by Adrienne Perry
Talk about clusterf@ck.
Daisy is struggling to meet a promise.
Chase is in a hurry.
They shouldn't meet but they do.
They should definitely not be having this conversation...
Talk about steamy and taboo...oh, but really not taboo...
Such a fun and wild turn of events
Eternal Embrace by Thomas Sweeney
Not sure what to make of this story. It was very different from the others.
Highland Pursuits by Emmanuelle De Maupassant
Just the kind of wicked fun your mother warned you against!

Review by Becky Grover
4 of 5 stars
*The Beard Made Me Do It by Scott Hildreth
Throwing caution to the wind, making rash decisions and running from the law! This is a story of a sexy, dangerous beard! This is a very quick read with non-complex characters. I didn't really connect with the characters at all. This story is unique, though!
*Thou Shalt Not Beard by Leslie McAdam
Come home from a trip and find your fiance' sporting a beard? Heck no. That moment being just days from your wedding? Oh hell no. Enjoy reading about this couple as they hash out whether this beard will be in attendance at the wedding! This was so hilarious at times with Leslie's use of word choice. Beard-a-lingus anyone?
*Opening Hearts by Jerica MacMillan
I especially loved reading this short story just after having read and reviewed Managed Hearts, The Players of Marcliff University Book 3. Opening Hearts is a glimpse at how it all began for Matt and Hannah when they met and fell hard for each other. Loved this tender, innocent and emotional read!
*All Or Nothing by M. Andrews
This was a super steamy read! Not necessarily insta-love, this couple had a couple months to get to know each other until it all comes to a head! Then all their passion unleashed!
*Eternal Embrace by Thomas Sweeney
This was very different from anything I have read before. This is definitely more of a memoir. A look back upon someone's life and how it was lived. It also gives us a look into the point of view of someone who has passed on, and their experiences thereafter. Unique story.
