Lights, Camera, Cupid! @authorSEJakes @amymaclane @AnneTenino @GallagherWitt @ZAMaxfield @RiptideBooks #REVIEW #ULTIMATEINDULGENCE

Light's, Camera, Cupid! By S.E. Jakes, Amy Lane, Z.A. Maxfield, Anne Tenino, L.A. Witt, Riptide Publishing
Bluewater Bay #6
Cupid is visiting Bluewater Bay, and he’s leaving chaos in his wake.

Nothing’s been the same in this sleepy little logging town since Hollywood came to shoot the hit TV show Wolf’s Landing—especially Valentine’s Day.

In L.A. Witt’s Just Another Day, beloved actors Levi Pritchard and Carter Samuels have an announcement for their fans, while in Z.A. Maxfield’s I’ll Be There, actor Spencer Kepler and his boyfriend Nash Holly brave a blizzard and a fan convention to spend their first February the 14th together.

Of course, it’s not just TV stars celebrating the day. In Anne Tenino’s Helping Hand, an aspiring artist eager to escape Bluewater Bay decides he just might have a reason to stay: lust-inspiring logger Gabriel Savage. In S.E. Jakes’s No Easy Way, a local teacher reconnects with an old lover working security on the film set. And in Amy Lane’s Nascha, a Bluewater Bay elder recalls how his own unconventional family used to celebrate the holiday.

Real life may be nothing like TV, but when Cupid comes to town, there’s plenty of romance and drama to go around.


REVIEW:
Just Another Day
Leiv Pritchard does not do Valentines! He hates the commercialism and the forced feeling of it all. But when he realizes that his attitude has hurt Carter's feelings he knows he needs to make it up to him.  And learns there is nothing better than make up sex.


Nascha
Oh Amy, why must you rip my heart out every time?? This felt very much like a prelude to a full book and when I checked the Riptide site I saw that it is. Here is hoping that this unconventional family can find happiness.

No Easy Way
Cary was only 16 when Dylan joined the military and broke his heart. Now, 6 years later Dylan is back and determined to make Cary forgive him. Can the two work through the betrayal and the anger to find their way back? With the help of a certain sexy book they just might!

Helping Hand
I was so loving this story of Lucas, a high school senior who is coming to terms with the fact that he is gay, until the ending. O M H Please tell me that this is another character introduction??

There were so many great moments in this book. What could have been a horrible coming out turned out to be a great way to show a connection between Lucas and his dad.

Maybe Lucas just needs to grow up some and this story will pick back up then.

I'll Be There
I liked the two MC's in this story and the determination of Nash to make it to Spencer despite the odds against him, but I have to say that I really wanted to know more about Healey and his band of nerds! Although I think my favorite part of the story is how many time Spencer is mistaken for several other British actors.


I had not read any of the Bluewater Bay books before starting this anthology, but have since bought all of the books in the series. I am looking forward to reading them all!


RATING: 5 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries.  This book was given to us by the author. Many thanks.
