Shelves: f-f-bsb-romance , short-or-novella-collection This was a bunch of shorts from authors we know from Bold Strokes Books, and a few that were new to me. Overall, this collection was just okay. There was one short I loved, five I liked, ten I thought were okay, and three, I did not care for. Since I rated ten of the books a 3, that's what I am giving the book, as an overall score. I think it would be too boring to mention all the shorts, so I will just stick to the few I liked: M. Ullrich- Guilty Pleasures, was by far my favorite.
