In Burn for Me by Shiloh Walker, Tate longs to spend his nights with Ali, a woman he’s loved for years. But while Ali’s heart pines to be with Tate, her head has reservations.

Tate's unresolved anger is a force to be reckoned with . . . but the heat that blazes between them is undeniable. Now both Tate and Ali are left to wonder: Can love really conquer all?
In Tangled by Kate Douglas, Nate shows up to work at Tangled Vineyards ready to do all the things he loves best—work with his hands, grow the grapes, and craft award-winning, full-bodied wines. But when something better comes along in the form of Cassie, the winemaker and former owner of the vineyard, Nate becomes completely love-drunk. Getting involved with Tangled’s number-one mixologist is a bad way to start off a new job, but with Cassie as a constant temptation, Nate doesn’t stand a chance…
Hot Alphas by Lora Leigh, Laurelin McGee, Shiloh Walker, Kate Douglas
I rather enjoy anthologies as a whole. It either gives you a taste of each author's writing style and/or whets you appetite for a series or author you already follow. In Hot Alphas, I was very familiar with three of the authors and found a new one that I will be checking out in the near future.
Of course with anthologies, you must be able to overlook the insta-love and don't get you hopes up for in depth character development. There is a little bit of development in both the relationships and character depth but not as much as you'd expect to find in a full length novel.
Bottom line, these novella length plots provided fast, easy and enjoyable reads, the perfect reading material for when you don't have a lot of time to invest but want to find some hot and steamy romance. 3.5 Stars
