I thought that "Good Girl Gone Bad" was an interesting story although it's not something that grabbed me in a big way. I prefer lead characters to feel like they've made a better connection and to have more emotional depth.
"Aphrodite's Passion" put an interesting twist on an old plot where a woman's step-children think her to be crazy for having sexual needs. Overall, it was a little cheesy at times, but still not too bad.
"White Heat" was a nice little sci-fi piece that I really like best out of the four. I also thought it was amusing that the heroine had a tendency to talk to herself out loud all the time... possibly because I could relate.
"Summer Lightning" was a nice, light-hearted read that had less drama than the rest. It was definitely a more relaxing read to round out the book and I thought it was good as well.
