A delightful collection of novellas from Ruby Lang, these three stories are sweet and low angst without being overly saccharine. The novellas were previously individually released but really work well together in The Uptown Collection.

Review: Real Men Knit, by Kwana Jackson

As a fan of Kwana Jackson’s other pen name K.M. Jackson I’d been looking forward to her debut under this name with Berkley. The summary alone delighted me because it screams complex family dynamics and the idea of grown men trying to figure out how to run a knitting and craft business really appealed to me.

The romance between Jesse and Kerry is sweet and a bit of a slow burn but is also low angst, which honestly I needed right now. I really liked Kerry in particular and loved seeing her stand up for herself as things went on. And the Strong brothers made me sit up and say ask what is behind each of their stories exactly Ms. Jackson!?

Guarding Temptation was previously published as a short story titled Resisting Desire in the Rogue Nights anthology. The new and updated version has been revised to double the original story so if you’ve already read the original version, there’s a lot more to the story of Nina and James in this novella.

Review: He's Come Undone, an Anthology

[fa icon="calendar'] May 11, 2020 9:54:45 AM / by Melanie posted in review

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Here’s the thing about anthologies. They usually contain a couple of good stories that anchor the collection and a couple of middling to forgettable stories that might just get skimmed. However, He’s Come Undone features five incredibly strong, nuanced, sweet romances featuring five of the brightest voices in romance today. The connective thread that ties these stories together is that they feature buttoned-up, rather stuffy heroes who embark on unexpected romances with people who help them to, well, become undone.
