4 Stars


Released: January 31, 2012
Series: Red Hot Weekend
Published by Samhain Publishing
Pages: 104

This short story is part of the Red Hot Weekend collection of short stories by Samhain (which includes Hidden Fire by Jess Dee and Lone Heart by Delilah Devlin).  All three are currently available as individual ebooks and will be released as a combined print anthology December 4, 2012.  This particular story is also a follow up story to TRIPLE DARE which is part of the Red Hot Winter collection of short stories.  So if you’re a stickler for reading in order, read that short first then this one.  I didn’t.  But I’ll rectify that soon!

We find ourselves at the wedding of Joseph and Anna, from TRIPLE DARE.  The best man, Rob, has recently left the hospital were he was being treated for a brain tumor.  But truth is he wasn’t supposed to be out and partying.  And his doctor, Emily Knox, went after him to make sure he was ok.

Of course there’s always been a little spark between the two and now that Rob has her in his home turf he plans on taking full advantage of that.

For such a short story this was very emotional and dealing with such a real issue, you can’t help but root for Rob the whole time.  Even with his smooth talker and risk taker ways.  You can tell he is a man that is not used to being denied anything but there’s also been a change in him, even though I can only imagine how he used to be.  What he’s been through has definitely affected him and made an impact on his life and how he sees himself.  Rob and Emily get together pretty fast but knowing that there was quite a bit of history between them made me jump right on board with it.

About Lexxie Couper

Lexxie’s not a deviant. She just has a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get darkly erotic romances with a twist of horror, sci-fi and the paranormal.

When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, two yabbies hell-bent on destroying their tank and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.

Having no idea how old she really is, Lexxie decided to go with 27 and has been that age for quite some time now. It's the best of both worlds - old enough to act mature, young enough to be silly.

And silly she can be. Just ask her husband who frequently has to endure her bursting into song whenever the mood strikes her, feeling him up in public (one of her favorite pastimes), or rolling around in the sand with their dog - a large mutt of dubious origins who causes almost as much havoc around the neighborhood as Lexxie herself. Or squealing her way down the slide at the local park with her daughter!

Lexxie lives by two simple rules - measure your success not by how much money you have, but by how often you laugh, and always try everything at least once. As a consequence, she's laughed her way through many an eyebrow raising adventure

Good review! And yes Emily and Rob having a history of sorts does make their eventual relationship work out smoother for me as a reader:)
