When she falls for the wrong brother Ash discovers the surreal truth about her old neighbors. But their secret is threatened by jealousy and Ash fears she will lose them forever.

Coming Home
Andi has never felt like she belonged, she has little memory of her past until the day a mysterious stranger walks into her life. Devon insists he knows her. She doesn't believe him, no matter how attractive he might be, until he shows her irrefutable evidence. Intrigued, Andi takes him up on his offer to journey home--only to discover there is danger involved with uncovering the past.

Only Darkness

Enticed by Nathan's popularity and connections to Heather, Collin goes along with the plan. But his desire for acceptance could cost him his life.

Non Stop to Nowhere
One night Amber's old high school frenemy, Phoebe, turns up desperately seeking help. The last thing Amber wants to do is get involved. Apprehensive, she investigates and soon discovers things aren't what they seem. It isn't just Halloween fun when the past comes back to haunt them--literally!

Ouroboros
Molly has Chris, a caring boyfriend and a typical teenage life, but she suffers from terrifying nightmares.

Chris will do anything to be with her always and if he can't have her, no one will.

Night Life: Paranormal Short StoriesMy Review
Night Life: Paranormal Short Stories by Tina Smith

Five short stories under one beautiful cover. Not a fan of anthologies? Nightlife: Paranormal Short Stories by authors, Tina Smith, Melissa Frost, S.W. Best, Sherri Fulmer Moorer , Alisse Lee Goldenberg and An Tran may just change your mind when you find yourself short on time! Kind of like having one of those multi-flavored cheesecake samplers, each story, while short has a unique flavor that has you hoping for more, while still being satisfied with what you read! Shall we storm the authors and have them create more detailed novels around these short reads? Count me in!

Prepare for a Kaleidoscope of tales, each filled with something supernatural, something that may go bump in the night!

From time travelers to werewolves, soulmates to frenemies, each tale is filled with a sense of youthful angst, romance or danger. Each author has done a wonderful job with few words, there is atmosphere, intrigue and characters that will both amuse and amaze you, some you may find are a bit grating on the nerves. An author that can evoke a range of feelings, involvement and enjoyment in just a few pages, has done their job, so getting 5 stories all at once like that? Made an anthology lover out of me!

Did I have a favorite story? Yep. Am I telling which one it is? Nope.

I received this copy from Tina Smith in exchange for my honest review.
