“What I liked about this anthology is that it gave me a chance to read authors that I have never tried before” ~ Under the Covers

This anthology was put together so that all proceeds from sales go to a worthy cause: St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, which all by itself is a nice enough reason to give this book a chance, of course another good reason to give it a go is because you get thirteen short fun, often sexy stories, all of which are listed at the bottom of this review.

What I liked about this anthology is that it gave me a chance to read authors that I have never tried before and although I didn’t enjoy all the novellas that were in Shiver there were enough in there that I loved and kept me hooked to the book. In particular I loved Bella Aurora, L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid’s novella’s.

But all the stories were a little bit sexy and most of them had me laughing, I would definitely recommend giving this anthology a try, you are bound to find a story you like!

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

I would love to know your review about each story, Suz :). Is each story more like novella or full length?
