    All were short reads, and nice enough stories. My favorite was Stranded by Jill Shalvis. And what really did it for me that each book features a man in uniform: firefighter, resuce worker, and ER doctor. A nice way to spend a stress-free afternoon!

    I loved all three of these stories by all three authors. The stories were well written about three different couples who fell in love with each other. The men have been in a hero profession one way or the other. They didn't want to get involved with a relationship and worry the women in their lives. But the girls had a different approach to get them to stay with them Would they all fall in love or would the men they love so much walk away ?

    #1: Trapped by Lori Foster Ethan and Rosie have been close friends for a very long time. When he wakes up one morning to a half naked Rosie in his bed, he can't remember how either of them got there. Did they or didn't they? He sure hopes not because she's his friend, but unfortunately she's also the sister of the cad who took off with Ethan's fiance, Michelle. Rosie has always had a thing for Ethan.

When he wakes up one morning to a half naked Rosie in his bed, he can't remember how either of them got there. Did they or didn't they? He sure hopes not because she's his friend, but unfortunately she's also the sister of the cad who took off with Ethan's fiance, Michelle. Rosie has always had a thing for Ethan. He doesn't remember the night they spent together so she uses it as an excuse to break down his walls and make him hers. It takes all of his friends to point out the obvious (she's a woman, not some asexual being, and she wants him) before he gives in. Of course she's a virgin, and how dumb must he (or any manwhore) feel when she tells him that she was basically saving herself for him? In the post-coital bliss that follows, she asks him when they can get married? WTF? I liked Ethan and hated Rosie. I know she's wanted him badly for a very long time, but the fact that she "had a key made for him months ago" is a little ... creepy. She's described by everyone as being pushy or bossy - I think she's obsessed. A little fiery drama, a compromise later and a HEA, yay. This story would get 2 stars from me. Maybe the actual series by this author will be better than this snippet. #2: Buried by Donna Kauffman Haley is the "poor little rich girl". A string of poor choices in her love life and an ex who nearly emptied out her bank account have left her a little bitter. The only companion she cares about now is her dog named Digger. On her way home from a trip, she hears that an earthquake hit very close to her house. She fears for her dogs safety and beats feet to get to him. When she arrives at the scene, she looks for someone to help her. That's where she stumbles across Brett, the younger brother of one of her past loves. He's always had a thing for her, but her being 19 at the time to his 16 put the kibosh on that. Now he might have a chance with her, if the twit doesn't get herself killed or anyone else. And here is where the story goes downhill like a landslide. She's so desperate to get to her dog that she sneaks herself among rescue workers and Brett and his rescue K9 have to chase after her, then she runs headlong towards her house, which is on unstable ground. Edit Okay, so the story redeemed itself towards the end, mostly due to Brett's charm and humor. Haley actually becomes likeable as well as she opens up to him and allows him into her heart. 2.5 stars. I'd give it 3 stars if it wasn't for the lousy first impression she made. Brett totally steals the spotlight in this story. #3: Stranded by Jill Shalvis This one was a total waste of time. Molly was a blubbering mess and so darn needy. Matt was closed off and cold. I didn't jive with either of them and their too fast ILYs wasn't convincing. It felt forced just to give the characters an excuse to stay together. Meh. 1 star. Funny, but the second story that I started out not liking turned out to be the best one.

    Excellent trashy novel. 10/10 was worth the dollar or two.

    Three short stories by three wonderful writers. Sounds like a winner to me. In the story Trapped!

Said best friend’s sister, Rosie, is in love with Ethan and always has been. She goes about finally trying to get him to see they are meant to be together. Although the love seems a bit rushed, that is to be expected in such a short story. It helps that Rosie and Ethan have actually been friends their whole lives; it’s just trying to pull that “aha” moment out of Ethan that takes the time. This is my first time reading anything by Lori Foster and I have been curious for a while, just haven’t picked any of her stuff up yet. This convinced me that I have to start reading her library of work. 4 stars Donna Kauffman is another new to me author. Her contribution, Buried!, was well written and made me want to check out more of her work. As with the first story in this compilation, the hero and heroine are already acquainted…although not to the same extent as the couple in the first story. Still, it helps with the pacing of the story that has to be told in such a short amount of time. The title, although not exactly true, is a much better fit than the first story’s title. 3.5 stars Jill Shalvis’ story, Stranded!, is the only one in this book that the hero and heroine do not already know each other. Talk about insta-love! This one is FAST. But, although it’s one of this author’s earlier published stories, it works. After all, it is a Shalvis story. (Plus, the title actually fits the story pretty well in this one.) 3.5 stars The ratings average out to 3.666 which means I will round up to 4 stars for my final rating. (I didn't read this book straight through. I took a break reading other things between each story so it didn't really take 6 days to read. This is a super quick read great for reading on a plane or on the beach.)

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It was an okay read. The first story, about Ethan and Rosie was my least favorite. There's hardly even a rescue here and Rosie irritated the hell out of me. It's one thing to be straightforward about liking a guy, but its another to be so pushy about it. And how long has she been obsessing about this guy anyway? Its a wonder she didn't claim him right after his first fiance failed to show up for the wedding. The second story would have been great except for the TSTL heroine. I understand loving on It was an okay read. The first story, about Ethan and Rosie was my least favorite.

The second story would have been great except for the TSTL heroine. I understand loving one's dog and needing to make sure he/she is safe and all that. But you don't go climbing up random mountains after an earthquake when the ground is unstable and the rescue workers have blocked it off. Especially when one of those rescue workers promises to look into it. I wish a house had fallen on her so she could realize what an idiot she was being and putting other rescue workers further at risk because of it. Brett though, the hero was a redeeming factor in this story. I could never have his patience. The third story was my favorite. Their was a bit of insta-love here, but the characters were pretty enjoyable and the writing was quite humorous. It's basically about two people stuck in a storm shelter together after the hero rescues the slightly absent-minded heroine from a hurricane (it better have been a hurricane - how else could winds get that strong and last that long?). They give into attraction and the rest follows...

    I got this out because of Jill Shalvis' contribution but honestly loved all these stories. They have the usual problems of novellas - not enough character development, things just happening too unbelievably fast - but this is probably my first 5 star review for novellas. While Jill's story was my favorite, I enjoyed them all pretty close to equally. I can see Lori Foster's being an introduction to a series featuring all of Ethan's friends. I'll have to see if that's true. I got this out because of Jill Shalvis' contribution but honestly loved all these stories.

    First book I’ve listened to on Audio. Still not completely sure I like it. Was different. The story its self was alright. Not sure even what length constitutes long enough for a review but thought I’d give it a shot. I have gotten a couple more stories in Audio to try out when running but have purposefully chosen non-romance as that might be one of the reasons I’m on the fence about audio.

    A collection of 3 romances. The first story, Trapped by Lori Foster, was the best of the three, but I found each one rather disappointing. None of the characters were very well developed and the plot, especially on the last story, was really thin. The first story was pretty good.

    i only read the Lori foster one in the anthology but it was definitely not one of her best works but the real screw-up was the blurb writer... the back and nothing to do with the actual story... so strange

    Fun quick read, all three story were short and sweet ... definitely like Lori Foster & Jill Shalvis's writing style. I'll have to read more by Donna Kauffman. A firefighter, a rescue worker, and an emergency room doctor each saved by the woman they thought they were saving.

    Story 1 - a hopelessly shallow story. I had to skim through the garbage! Story 2 - better than first but not much substance either. Story 3 - best of the worse but still, no depth.
