An anthology of four delicious, erotic stories, each beautifully crafted for your enjoyment…
Got Muscle? by Tina Donahue (M/F)
It’s so nice to have a hunk around the house…
As a recent transplant from New York, Bree’s certain her company transferred her to the London office because she wasn’t model-thin like the American staff. To rectify that, she’s bought a home gym. Now all she needs is someone to put the bloody thing together so she can sweat herself into a micro mini.
David has muscle to spare. Tall, dark, and sinfully handsome, he’s doing odd jobs until he gets his start-up off the ground. As far as David’s concerned, Bree’s lush curves don’t need improving, just a man who can appreciate them. He’ll definitely give her all the exercise she needs.
Ménage at Mealtime by Bella Settarra (M/F/M)
Naomi Powell nervously prepares for a dinner party where she hopes to secure a lucrative deal with a new publisher. Her ex, Richard, is also attending with his new girlfriend, Naomi’s best friend, Paula.
When Naomi hears a bird stuck in her chimney she urgently calls ‘Men for Hire’ for help. Two gorgeous guys, Aaron and James, come to her rescue. Not only do they solve her chimney problem, they woo her guests and give Naomi the time of her life—ménage-style!
However, when Richard announces that he wants Naomi back, will she follow convention or follow her heart?
Calculated Risk by Michelle Roth (M/F)
Stella Whitman has inherited her mother’s country home. When she finds it in utter disrepair, her cousin suggests that she call Men for Hire in search of a handyman. When he arrives, she’s somewhat shocked to find that his deep brown eyes and rugged good looks are giving her some very inappropriate thoughts.
Despite his instant attraction to Stella, Ian Starling has convinced himself that they need to keep things strictly professional. He’s been burnt before and has vowed never again. It becomes increasingly more difficult as he gets to know her, though. Then one rainy night changes everything…
Marital Duties by Jennifer Denys (M/F)
Delighted her ‘Men for Hire’ business was doing so well, Jennifer wasn’t expecting several of her clients to fall in love with her employees. At least they were getting sex. She was married and didn’t even get that most basic of husbandly tasks.
An idea came to her, and she amusingly completed an employee request form, asking her husband to do his marital duties.
Rob was stunned when he received the form mistakenly sent out by Jennifer’s assistant. Well, if his lovely wife wanted him to perform his duties, he would undertake them. Only, it wouldn’t be what she was asking for…
What if you found the love of your life in a phone call? Each of the authors in this anthology brings us a story of just that. These women are in need of some muscle and help around the house. What they get is not only the help but a happy ever after. Three of the stories show us how the couples come together while the last story gives readers a look at the owner of the company and her adventure. What a great business Jennifer has come up with and the added benefits make it all the more better.
Got Muscle? By Tina Donahue is a sweet story about finding love. Having been transferred to London, Bree has no idea who to call when she needs a man’s strength. When she calls for help and David arrives she is surprised at the instant connection. Knowing that she is a large girl Bree never thought that a man like David would ever look past that and see what she truly was inside. I loved David and seeing their relationship take shape made for a wonderful read. When Bree opens up and lets go of her insecurities, the two burn up the pages.
Ménage at Mealtime by Bella Settarra is a great story. I enjoyed watching the two men find a way into Naomi’s heart. With James and Aaron’s help, she begins to see how beautiful she truly is. Not only did the main characters grab my attention but I enjoyed the secondary characters as well. Love is strong and emotions run high in this story. I loved seeing Naomi blossom and find out what she truly wants and deserves.
Calculated Risk by Michelle Roth gives us the story of Stella and Ian. The two are great together. Their attraction is there right from the start and grows into something much deeper. Ian is a good man and tries to do things by the book but his attraction to Stella is too strong. Not only is she a beautiful woman but she is smart and friendly. It was nice to see the two find their way to a happy ending. Life brings Stella and Ian together but it is up to them to fight for it.
Marital Duties by Jennifer Denys is Jennifer’s story. She and Rob are happily married but it seems that lately they have been too busy and hard at work to do anything but fall asleep once they finish their days. She longs for the good old days when they were carefree and spontaneous. When Jennifer’s assistant emails Rob a contract that Jennifer left on her desk the fun begins. Their story is a sweet story. I enjoyed seeing the two reconnect and enjoy themselves.
I enjoyed each of the stories in this anthology. They are fast paced and hot reads. Emotions and sexual tension run rampant in these tales keeping you interested all the way through. Can you imagine making that phone call and finding love on the other end? This storyline was a wonderful concept and I would not mind coming back for more.
