This week for the LoveRotica Book Challenge I chose the sub-genre Anthology written by multiple authors. This one is titled 2 Nights With You and is uniquely written about three friends who find love on a vacation. Each friend has her own author, but the characters are interwoven in each other’s stories. Olivia Gaines, JK Rivers and Tiana LaVeen really worked well together to create this piece of work.
Here’s what I think:
This anthology is chock full of amazing! Usually when several writers get together and write, you may like one or two stories, but very rarely do you like them all. Well, this collection is the exception! I absolutely loved each and every story.
I was familiar with Olivia Gaines’ work and that is why I purchased the book, but I must say JK Rivers and Tiana Laveen held their own. I am excited to add two more writers to my list of must read authors.
The book centers around three friends, Naima, Yuri and Leah who spend 2 nights in beautiful Tahiti on a short getaway. Each lady has her own issues to deal win and neither has a man to call her own. What they each find is their soul mate. All the single ladies reading this may want to book a trip to Tahiti as hot and sexy as the men these ladies found are. Woo!
Naima, has issues with her job and needs to get away. She meets a sexy reclusive R&B singer, named Derrick who changes her life. This man is so hot he burns up the pages. He is such a romantic man. Any man who can make a woman go from a strong dislike of dog to calling his pets her babies and loving them like they are children is a keeper. You will never forget to drink your pineapple juice again. (Olivia Gaines)
Yuri, a celebrity chef with her own cooking show was fresh off of a scandal where she was dating her married producer and got busted. Now, she had no idea he was married, but the gossip rags don’t care about that part. She meets her match when she runs into the wild and super sexy Sven, a photographer with a man bun, on a snorkeling excursion. Ok I had to point out the man bun because this man is smokin’! In my head he is a cross between Charlie Hunan and Jason Mamoa. Need I say more?
Last, but certainly not least we have Leah a real estate agent who lost her husband in a tragic car accident a year earlier. The poor woman is depressed and broke. Her husband left her with a pile of debt and it turns out he was a rolling stone, much to her surprise. She planned to stay locked up in her hotel room the entire trip, but couldn’t resist the Tahitian sunset and a walk on the beach. During her stroll she meets the self proclaimed playboy, Ceasar.
This Latin heartthrob is finer than wine and is a smooth talker. He was so good that she gave him some on the first night, but she made him work for it. He loved the challenge and ended up falling head over heels.
Each story is a full length novel with all the twists and turns you’d expect from seasoned writers. I urge you to spend 2 Nights with these hot couples. 5 kisses for this gem.
