Mouth to mouth, body to body. When it comes to sex, nothing should get in the way of unbridled carnal pleasure. And this summer three of erotic romance's boldest new voices show you exactly why barer is better in three novellas that will take you to the heights of naked desire...

"China Doll" by Sunny

When Rand and Anna meet in the lush heat of an Indonesian hotel, it's strictly one night only for two strangers looking to banish the ghosts in their pasts. But more than their skin is bared when they come together in the tropical heat, and before long they're aching for more.

"Tempted" by Jami Alden

Friends as well as coworkers, Lauren and Tony have maintained a strict hands—off policy with each other—until an out—of—town party gives them an excuse to share a hotel room. And when they do, their clothes come off—and the new rule is definitely hands on.

"Hot Wired" by Valerie Martinez

Spending a summer in San Francisco before starting her career, Lola is looking for fun. And when she meets the driver of a fire—engine red pickup—a guy with plenty of muscle under his own hood—she finds herself in for the hottest, hardest ride of her life.

My rating:

Jami Alden’s Tempted was the best of the bunch with two friends crossing that tricky boundary to lovers, yet still hoping to get back to being friends after a hot’n’steamy weekend. You can guess how that one worked out.

Fun, sexy, sweet, sad, cute story that I won’t mind re-reading in the future.

If only I could say the same for Martinez’s Hot Wired and Sunny’s China Doll. Bland and boring, and Hot Wired didn’t make much sense to me.

I guess I should’ve read them first and then relish JA’s story with gusto, not let it “ruin” the rest of the anthology. ;)
