What I thought about Romancing the Alpha Boxed Set

What I like about anthologies is that I can read something from an author I haven't read before and this anthology is packed with the type of romance suspense I like. Since there were a few authors that I wanted to check out, I decided to give Romancing the Alpha a try with its ten novellas.  It's a steal at 99¢. 

I haven't read all the stories in this anthology yet, but I've read a few and here are my thoughts.

I am a fan of Zara Keane's Ballybeg series, so Her Treasure Hunters Ex made this a one-click for me, and I was glad I did. I always love my trips to Ballybeg courtesy of Zara Keane's series, and this one was suspenseful and sexy with a second chance storyline between the main characters.  Kate and Dex broke up months ago, and it's very clear that they aren't done with each other.  I loved Dex's earnest way of talking to Katy and her response to it.  It's a lovely story, with a lot of significance as it takes place against the backdrop of a historical event, the sinking of the Lusitania. There is a lot to like about this story, and it's a perfect follow-up after Sean and Clio's story.  If you haven't been reading this series, this story might just lure you into the charm of small coastal town of Ballybeg and its sometimes quirky and adorable inhabitants.

Fall Back by Zoe York was really Mel's story, as she prepares to honor her mother by repeating an endurance race in Hawaii.  When her partner can't make it at the last minute, she agrees to let Cade go with her, knowing full well that she's attracted to him. Nature takes its course... and there are some sweet moments here, as well as a very determined ex-Seal who's ready to settle down.  Nicely done.

Cover Me by Leigh James was another exciting story, that was more suspense than fun, since the main characters get in some deep trouble in Mexico and it takes some effort to get out of it.  This story puts the women in danger and it even though the husbands are ex-military, I loved that it was a joint effort between the ladies and men to get out of danger.  This wasn't a damsel in distress story, but a damsel-get-herself-out-of-distress story and I loved how the women in the story were empowered.  I might even have to read more about Liberty, cause seriously, she showed a lot of strength in this novella.

I enjoyed all three of the novellas I read from this anthology and I think that's a great sign that it was worth the purchase.  If you like action and romance together, this might be the deal of the day for you.
