Holy Moly! This book is like 800+ pages! I wanted to dive into some of my favorites and maybe a few new-to-me authors. I loved that most of the authors' incorporated something 'Australia' in their story. Here are short thoughts on my favorites: Stitches by Melanie Moreland I love Melanie's storytelling. So hearing through her reader group we were going to be graced with little girl/single mom, I was excited. She did not disappoint in this meet-cute story. I'm thinking the stuff Koala hid out on purpose to make it happen. Once again, Melanie is a master at giving you a short complete story you feel good about. Shopping for More by Julia Kent Okay seeing this was going to be more Declan and Shannon... COUNT ME IN! I love these two. And seeing them overcome traveling CEO and facetime with a toddler. Loved LOVED this look at these two again. Ms Kent tapped into the current events to weave in the anthology's theme. One Wild Ride by Chelle Bliss The Gallos are my favorites from Chelle and can't get enough. Growly men on motorcycles and sassy pants heroines. I giggle-snorted when her 'head nod' to the theme came. Only she can create a Koala you'd want to climb like a tree. I'll add more thoughts on the stories I enjoyed to my Goodreads account as I have time to read because of 800 PAGES! 100% of proceeds are going to charity. I am sure you'll find something you love about this collection too!

The Last Song by Skye Warren A check-in with Liam and Samantha, as beautiful as the music you know she makes. It lifted off the pages in a melody that wove around you, and let you experience the love that these two share. In other words, perfection <3 A Real Man Down Under by Jenika Snow A super sexy short about a married couple away for a holiday. A visit to a nightclub that ends up on the beach 😉 Until Next Year by Annabel Joseph Whoa, that was as deep as the ocean it was set on. Two people, meeting at their worst, healing together, but apart, and finally taking that chance. This was a beautiful story, rich and stormy, with the taste of the salt air and the ocean breezes whispering on your skin while you read it. Loved it! Caroline’s Surprise by Susan Stoker Wolf surprises Caroline, and it is a dozy! Filled with love, and shared memories of a quarter-century of marriage, this was a story to warm the heart and fuzzy the soul! The King of Libertines by Pam Godwin Pirate and Libertine meet, instant, visceral, attraction. They resist, so hot, so sexy, so mysterious, and get to know each other. Still so crazy attracted, and they still resist, then they can’t anymore. The attraction fires the blood of them both, culminating in a wild and untamed passion. A mystery to solve, as this prequel leaves us wanting for more!

Review for King of Libertines by Pam Godwin 4.5 stars for this awesome pirate short read in the Australia anthology. This prequel to Sea of Ruin left me grasping to get more and even more excited for the continuation of Priest and Bennett’s story. Can’t wait to read the remaining short stories in this very cause worthy anthology!
