I really enjoyed the stories by Lori Foster and Janelle Denison. I look forward to rereading these stories. This is one of those 'keeper' books. I didn't much care for the tone of the one by Shannon McKenna - it was like she was being forced - almost raped - and I didn't like that.
I enjoyed this book. I got it for the second story, Something Wilde, the start of Denison's Wilde series. A theme of dominance ran through all the stories.
The first short story, Drive Me Wild was my second favorite one. The story's main characters were Erica and Ian. I'll get right into it. This story read as if there were two previous where Erica's friends and co-workers met their husbands. Ian is a big man, but I don't get a good sense of how tall or big is supposed to be. He does intimidate almost everyone in the company but Erica. He simply does it for her. I thought the sex scenes nice and steamy. I also liked how Ian slowly seduced Erica, all day at work and for a few hours at his home. Previously I stated that this story seemed like it was the last in a trio, I thought the author did a good job of providing enough information to fill in blanks in this story. Very enjoyable.
The second short story, Something Wilde, was by far my favorite. The sex scenes were very, very hot-4.5 chile peppers. This starts the Wilde series with the youngest brother Eric who has Jill in his sights. He wants her and keeps his word on their affair. He professes his love for her first after proding from another co-worker, she admits her love. Since the storyline is about sex, that is the majority of this story. The author does a great foreshadowing job of introducing the female lead from the second book in the series. She also gives lets the reader meet the other two brothers, Steve and Adrian. For me, this story was worth the price and wait for the book.
Short story 3, Touch Me, was full of too much angst. I felt the story needed more space to tie up all the loose ends that were present. Because it did not have the needed space, the author rushed the ending. I really don't feel this fits into the erotica genre. Perhaps it's because of the dominance. I did not like the female lead, Tess. I was a lot more sympathic to the male lead, Jonah. I did not believe Tess getting as strong as she did as quickly as she did. Again, not enough space. I think I'll give the author another chance, perhaps with a novel. I was totally confused as to what happened between pages 286 and 300. Tess becomes this superwoman who decides she'll controll Jonah and make him beg. He doesn't mind,but then it turns and she becomes mean. I missed that turn. My reader partner could not explain it to me either. Perhaps someone reading this review can. If you like a lot of emotion in your reads, this will be one for you.
Books in "Wilde" series: "Someone Wilde" from the "I Brake for Bad Boys" Anthology, WIlde Thing, "The Wild One" from "Bad Boys to Go" Anthology, "The Wilde Side", "One Wilde Weekend" from the "Perfect for the Beach" Anthology and "Too Wilde to Tame".
Three sizzling sexy stories. The first, DRIVE ME WILD, is by Lori Foster. It's the final story about the sex toy story and bet placed by three single females (Becky, Asia & Erica). (See I LOVE BAD BOYS.) The other two stories are SOMETHING WILDE and TOUCH ME. They explore the darker sinister side of sexual encounters, and I didn't care for them as much as Lori's story. However, it was still an interesting read.
