Get k(ink)y with ten sizzling hot book boyfriends! These sexy, curve-loving, tattooed bad boys will steal your hearts and more in this all-new novella collection brought to you by USA Today and bestselling authors.Thoughts on Curved Lines: Reviewing in the order I read them (with the exception of Kinky Curves because Kinky Chronicles books get their own review. *finger guns*)...
Kinky Curves – Jodi Redford - The queen of dirty talk. The king of grind. Love is about to get real filthy. - Review found HERE.
Dirty Deeds – Allie Cooke - Four days, a million dollars, the performance of a lifetime…but what happens when they stop faking it? Dirty Deeds ain't always dirt cheap. - Interesting idea, but I wanted a little more resolution. Admittedly, Jeff's guilt over the transgression that drove him to this point was intriguing. I just wanted a more solid ending between the two characters.
Another Man’s Treasure – Dee Tenorio - A widowed actor and single dad pulls out all the stops to show a single mom just how well a woman can be treasured. - HOO-BOY! I liked this one. Tonio was domineering without being a jerk and he was SOOOOO careful with Ari. The care he took in showing her she was special made me a little teary.
Pretty In Ink – Merryn Dexter - Sexy, sweet Aubrey Jensen is everything a semi-reformed bad boy could want – but sometimes getting what you want doesn’t give you what you need. - I liked this one, but wouldn't have minded it being a little longer. Aubrey and Garrett were cute enough I would have liked to see the nuances of their relationship in a little more detail.
Acquired Taste – Dee Carney - When celebrity chef August Jaeger mixes it up with a curvy food blogger, they both realize what they want isn’t on any menu. - Sexy times with food. *thumbs up*
Scorched Desire -- Lexxie Couper - When a Harley-riding hunk literally sweeps her off her feet, Jilly Parker finds herself transported to a world of dragon shifters, carnal lust, and fated love. - Draaaagons, man! I dig them. And I'm all for fated love and mating fevers so this one TOTALLY hit the spot.
Hot Tamale – Tilly Greene - Derek Schrizer is a retired Marine looking to get a new tattoo, not reconnect with his first love, the curvy sexy Cat. - Had a hard time connecting with both the characters and the story line in this one.
Like a Boss – Quinn - Proving she’s more than a smart mouth and sexy curves would be a hell of a lot easier if she wasn’t so distracted by her sexy new boss. - I liked this one even though I wasn't thrilled with Theo's way of dealing with his and Talia's relationship while on the job. However, he did redeem himself at the end, so YAY!
Marked By Ice – Dawn Montgomery - His only job is to protect her at all costs, but who will protect the big bad wolf’s heart once he gets a taste of her sweet lips? - Growly, naked werewolves are my eternal weakness. Ice certainly lived up to both of those standards. *slow thumbs up*
Waking Up – Kathryn Lively - A chance encounter forces a plus-sized woman with dormant dreams to wake up and find her own Happily Ever After. - Blair wasn't an easy character to like at first. She's so entrenched in her routine, she's barely living. Having someone step into her orbit who's outside of what she's used to shakes her up and makes her see everything she's NOT doing.
