    Another great collection of political romances

    I’ve read and enjoyed some of these anthologies before, and since there were also several familiar names, I just had to pick this up! “Resisting Desire” – Talia Hibbert – ★★★★ I haven’t read much of Ms. Hibbert’s work, but what I have I’ve loved! This is a bit different from what I’ve come to expect from the anthology, as it’s actually set in Britain. Nina runs a website dedicated to independent political reporting, and her latest article on Brexit has led to death threats. Afraid to stay in her own home, and knowing the police will be of no help, she reaches out to her friend James for help. Problem is, things are a bit awkward between the childhood friends after a kiss led to a make out session that blew both their minds. Can they go back to being just friends, or is whatever between them worth risking that friendship to explore? My favorite part of this story is that while Nina leans on James for support, she’s the one who figures out the solution to her problems. Also, Ms. Hibbert doesn’t shy away from the realities of police racism and the double-standards for women in media, especially Black women. “Dropped Stitches” – Annabeth Albert – ★★★★ It’s a high school reunion of sorts in voting line when Bea literally runs into Kira, her high school crush. After Bea finds out Kira just got dumped by her girlfriend, she invites her along to the watch party for the political candidate she’s been volunteering for. Kira’s all competent and take-chargey, even when she gets roped into handing out signs for an event she’s just shown up to, and Bea is so kind and thoughtful, she volunteers to help Kira pick up her things from her ex’s place. This was quite sweet, with lots of bonus knitting, and I also liked that they got into an argument, but both women were able to realize where they went wrong and apologize. Overall, this is a sweet second chance story! “Parking Lot Cowboy” – Rebecca Crowley – ★★★★ Margot, newly moved to Kansas, spends her Saturday mornings volunteering as a women’s clinic escort with a taciturn (but seriously hot) cowboy. When, after three months, he finally breaks his silence, Margot practically tells him her life story, including inviting him to dinner at the apartment she still shares with her ex-boyfriend. Their relationship moved a bit too fast for me, but I liked that the general bent of the story was against keyboard warriors who are too busy arguing about how to fix everything wrong rather than actually trying to fix things. “Dare to Dream” – Hudson Lin – ★★★★ Derek is a bit miffed at his fellow law student and homework partner, Diego, when he schedules their meeting for 10pm and then is half an hour late. It turns out Derek has more things to be upset about – though Diego is a DACA recipient and his mother is an undocumented immigrant, he’s more interested in taking care of his American-born sister than protesting politically. Diego’s frustrated that all Derek seems to see of him is that he’s a Dreamer, not his intelligence or legal skills. Despite the fact that they’ve just met, their relationship felt like it reflected that, so it wasn’t too unbelievable. “The Coffee Shop Around the Corner” – Shae Connor – ★★★ Madeline, social media manager for a mayoral candidate, doesn’t realize that the cute coffee shop owner is the same person who’s been emailing her thoughtful questions about her candidate’s positions. This was cute, but it felt like it concentrated more on the political stuff than the relationship – like, I now know a lot more about Atlanta’s infrastructure issues than I expected – so I didn’t really get a good sense of the two of them as a couple. I think it’s really hard to write a believable relationship in a novella when the two characters have only just met (rather than relying on them being friends, old flames, etc) and it didn’t quite work for me. “Love Your Face” – Ainsley Booth – ★★★★ Fred is a decidedly grumpy heroine, frustrated with life and the circumstances that are forcing her back to her hometown and family for Thanksgiving. Ami, her best friend, is a much more positive person, so it’s a really good thing that she surprises Fred by following her home. Fred’s family is set in their ways, refusing to even call her by her chosen nickname and incapable of understanding her job. Ami’s her backup, sticking up for her when her brother and dad once again try to downplay her achievements, and it gives Fred the power to finally realize that she has the ability to chose her own family. It was a sweetly funny take on chosen family and dealing with toxic relationships. “Sacred Son” – Robin Covington – ★★★★ Ten years ago, Judah stomped all over Adam’s heart when he broke up with him before Adam left for college. Now Adam’s back and working with a nonprofit that helps Native Americans with legal issues, and Judah has a case he hopes he’ll accept – regaining custody of his son. This story was particularly heart-wrenching.

    Hot & Sexy Anthology

    I totally enjoyed Judah and Adam’s story in Sacred Son by Robin Covington. This the only story I have read so far in the anthology Rogue Nights, book six in the Rogue series. This is a hot m/m story involving the attraction and history between Judah and Adam. Ten years ago Judah and Adam ended an intense relationship, as Judah did not want to keep Adam from pursuing his law degree at an Ivy League college. Since then, Adam has made a career for fighting for the rights of Native Americans in court and the legislature. Judah has been rebuilding his life after prison and fighting to regain custody of his son from a non-Native foster family. Judah decides to ask Adam for help with his case, despite there being bad feelings between them. The sparks of attraction and desire did not die out during their separation and they struggle to resist each other. These two need to decide if their future allows for a second chance or a final goodbye between them. Ms. Covington wrote an emotional and moving story filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, and endearing characters that is not to be missed. I highly recommend Sacred Son to other readers.

    Love Second Chance Romance!

    This anthology is a collection of seven tales of romance, hope, passion, and the promise of new beginnings. ~ Sacred Son by Robin Covington This is a beautiful, moving and steamy second chance romance. Adam Woodson and Judah Nighthorse were young lovers. They were on two very different paths and Judah did not want to hold Adam back so he walked away from the man he loved, breaking both their hearts. Now years later, Judah needs Adam to help him get his son back. Neither has forgotten the other and can't deny how much they still care for each other. But Judah's son, Gideon, must come first, no matter how much they want to explore their feelings for each other. This is a beautiful and moving story of redemption, trust, and love. I really connected and cared for Adam, Judah, and Gideon. They are complex characters that have so much to say and I would love more of them. Their story was quick, and satisfying, and I really hope to see them again! I have only read this story so far but am excited to check out the rest of this anthology and find new favorite authors!
