Review: Love In Transit

Find out what happens when you give six authors the SAME blurb and they write their OWN story.

The blurb:

You know those people that have a house full of motivational slogans? Embrace Every Moment, stamped on their coffee mugs. Always Kiss Me Goodnight painted above their perfectly made beds.

I’m not one of those people.

This morning I overslept, then slipped on a stray sock and banged my toe into the nightstand. The elevator in my building broke and I had to run down six flights of stairs. And then my local coffee shop was closed. For health code violations.

What’s that? Not the end of the world? You want me to suck it up?

Did I mention I’m wearing a wedding dress… on the subway?

It’s a Good Day for a Hot Mess.

Someone embroider that on a pillow.


 Review by April

ARC provided for an honest review 


I've been intrigued and horny to get my hands on this anthology since it was announced. Such a unique concept, and I'm all for a new fictional adventures, especially those that are fresh and haven't been done before. I can't wait to see how all six stories, using the same synopsis plays out!


*****Times Square by Jana Aston*****

"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale."

I fell in love with Times Square! This installment in the anthology made me feel all the squish, mushy, jittery, butterfly swarming feels that comes with new love.

Lauren and Max are perfect and so darn cute together. With sexual chemistry that's off the charts,  greater than the Empire State Building, it was fun to watch them fall in love, so in sync with each other.

Downright delectable!, Times Square is a sexy, swoon filled insta love that leaves me begging for more.

When you're  stuck in a rut and losing hope, sometimes a simple smile can change the course of your life.


*****St. George Station by Ainsley Booth*****

"I'm guzzling whiskey and she's asking for juice. My best friend's kid sister."

Ainsley Booth delivers Hot AF reads, and St. George Station DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT. Oh my gaaawd! *fans self*

She's off limits.
He's her older brothers best friend.

The whole "taboo"/off-limit factor combined with a  friend to lovers twist had me drooling in anticipation for what was to come with these two. Cara and Toby *le sigh* I can't even right now. I'm nothing but a puddle of gushy, mushy swoon right now.

Again, I'm left begging for more.


*****The Hammersmith & City Line by Kitty French*****

"It's been a while since a girl was direct enough to attempt to fellate me through my trousers. Call me prudish, but I'd prefer it if you kissed my mouth before my cock. Buy me a beer, even. What kind if man do you take me for?"

British humour, wit, and banter have always been a weakness of mine and there's no holding back when it comes to Kitty French!

The Hammersmith & City Line was an absolute treat to read! Brimming with a hilarious plot, characters, and one insanely intense wedding game show, Kitty took us on an addictive journey with Connie and Ryan! With a touch of suspense it just added that extra special touch to make this short read a heart pounding fictional adventure. 


*****The Loop by BJ Harvey*****

"My biggest regret and my longest-held dream."

Cue the waterworks! BJ Harvey guides us down memory lane with a long lost love. The end wasn't pretty but the new beginning of Sarah and Cameron's journey is definitely fairy tale HEA!

Sixteen years, seems like a lifetime but these two lovebirds from the past haven't forgotten anything about each other and not a day goes by that one doesn't think of the other.

A fun, emotional second chance romance.


*****Capitol South by Raine Miller*****

"Yes, I love you. I learned that loving you is not a thing I can choose to do, or not to do. Love is something I finally understand after all these years. And I only understand it in the context of you."

There's really nothing quite like a good old Political romance, reeling with such unconventional rules, traditions, and expectations derived of POTUS lineage.

The sexualized push and pull between Reese and Grayson has been going on for years. Plauged by a deadline of bloodlines and several NOs, Grayson has given up, well almost. *wink*

A twist of fate that will lead these two to a future that spells Happily Ever After.

I'd love to see this as a full length novel as there's so much more to explore!! I'm quite intrigued with the storyline.


*****Wall Street Station by Liv Morris*****

"To save an Angel, I prepare to make a deal with the devil."

Oh my God!!! This one!! It was devine! Seraphina and Seth!!! These two are #RelationshipGoals.

When your life is swept out from under your feet so tragically like Sera's, it's comforting to have a knight in shining armor to help guide you.

For three years Seth has had his eyes and heart set on Sera. Fireworks and sparks, their meeting was fate! Their love is just out of the world.

I'm so smitten with this story!! Gah!!! Liv Morris you need to hurry up and write the rest of this story!! I am dying here. I neeeeeeed more. ASAP.

FINAL THOUGHTS:
I'm generally not a fan of anthologies, as I usually find them a bit overwhelming with so many stories but LOVE IN TRANSIT was perfect! So refreshing with its take on one synopsis, and really, I was quite interested and intrigued to see how it would all pan out. It blew me away! I couldn't wait to dive into the next story, to see what kind of adventure I was in for. Everything about this project is a huge success! The creativity within knows no bounds! *Cheers*
