I ususally don't like anthologies, but I like Lora Leigh so I picked this book up. If the Lora Leigh story would have been good, I would have liked this book. Unfortunately, it was not so good.
Ms. Leigh's story lacked depth. "Sheila's Passion" was set up as a preview to future stories... maybe that was it's only point. Disappointing. Other than that the character's had sex four times and then there was a HEA.
The other two stories were better, not great, but better. Not particularly recommended.
This was the final straw. I will neither buy nor read another Lora Leigh book. I loved her Seals series, but everything else has been blah. Sex, sex, and more sex with no real story at all. I agree with another reviewer that what story there was to this was idiotic and made no sense whatsoever.
I liked Cheyenne McCray's offering, but Red Garnier's not so much.
Really wouldn't recommend.
I either love Lora Leigh (Breed Series) or hate her (Bound Hearts series). The main reason I dislike the Bound Hearts series is because it's boring and the characters are idiots. "Sheila's Passion" falls into the dumb characters catergory. I had to force myself to finish it and now I want the time I wasted back. The story is confusing and doesn't go anywhere. The plot doesn't make sense. Both characters claim they don't play games but that's exactly what they do. They act like teeny boppers, "Well, if you can't figure out what's wrong than you don't deserve to know." On top of that the sex scenes were dull and redundant. Usually Leigh's sex scenes are hot but here I have no idea why they would mistake lust for love.
My review of McCray's "Deadly Dance" is unfair. I developed a hate-on for Adam Boyd after his breakup with Nxy. This story is from her paranormal romance starring Nxy. Adam spent a whole book convincing Nxy that her being different (not human) doesn't matter to him only to break up in the last book because she was too different. This story takes place right afterwards. So it was very hard to sit through how special Keri the ballerina was and how much he loves her when I sat through three books of him saying the exact same thing to Nyx. So I read it with lots of eye-rolling and hating Adam for being a player. Not fair, I know. So it was hard for me to enjoy. If I never read the other books in the series, I probably would think the story was okay.
I've never read Red Gardner before and I probably won't. I just couldn't get into the story. It was kind of slow and dragged a bit for me.
So definitely a waste of time. Avoid it.
