Like always, this anthology was a mixed bag. Some of the stories were easy and quick to read and some were easily discarded and forgotten. Some of them were so good that I wish they could have been longer, but when you have so many authors and stories in one anthology what you get are more like vignettes than stories. What I can tell you, though, is that by the time I finished reading this anthology, I was saying, “bollocks” with an appalling accent that my children found quite amusing.
The stories that stood apart for me were:
Ninety-Nine Problems by Becky Black, competing ice cream parlors consider a merger in more ways than one.
Bread and Butter Pudding by Jules Jones, though a vignette, it was so hot and funny, it was definitely worth a read.
Wrong Number by Megan Reddaway –Cute, funny and hot. I liked it.
Wag, Not a Dog, by Theo Fenraven –virus creator meets a sexy slacker with surprisingly high morals. What Silver, could do with the action figures that Wag in his cubicle is probably illegal in most Southern States.
Jay Northcote _Hot and sexy, Morris dancers never had their sticks “polished” so well. I loved this one.
