Winter Warmers – Reviews

I knew I was in for a treat with these stories and I wasn’t disappointed.  This is not an anthology of Christmas stories, but rather each story is set in winter, and as such can be read at any time of the year.” ~~ Jen at Well Read.

Some of the great reviews received for the anthology:

* At Jessewave’s, Cryselle rated it 4.25 and said “Winter-themed, hot stories with an English flair. Good with cocoa and peppermint schnapps.”

* At Queer Magazine Online, Serena said “If you are looking for a heartwarming, nicely uplifting and positive read, these five short stories fit the bill. Each of them contributes to the whole in their own way, but taken together, they make a wonderfully ‘warming’ whole. This collection just ‘worked’ for me.”

* At Pants Off Reviews, Darien rated it 4.5 and said “I loved this book every freaking story had me grinning, and getting feelings in my heart. A perfect Christmas read, about the joys of the holiday. It could have been all ‘happy love is all we need’ but each story had a little something more. Every story has a uniqueness that stand on its own. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one.”

* At Romance Around the Corner, Brie rated it 4.5 and said “I think there’s a bit for every taste, and so the best I can do is say that there’s a lot of diversity and great quality in this book. If I had to do a mini review I would say something like this: Clare London’s Lucky Dip was fun, Chrissy Munder’s Butterscotch Kisses was sweet, Lou Harper’s Wintertide was touching, Josephine Myles’ When In Amsterdam… was daring, and J.L. Merrow’s A Pint of Beer, a Bag of Chips, and Thou was charming. I liked every single one of these novellas and I want to read more by every single one of these authors.”

* At Kassa’s blog, Kassa rated it 3.5 and said “This collection is exactly what I wanted to get me in the mood for the upcoming Holidays and it’s short, sweet, and to the point. Each story is obviously different with their own tone and mood. I like the variety offered and each author is clearly talented. The stories are also short and often sweet, just a glimpse into the lives of these men and that’s enough for me. I never got bored with any particular story but neither did I want them to continue. I’m good with the stories offered and happy enough to move on. For only a few bucks this is one of the better holiday collections and worth the money.”

* At Tam’s Reads, Tam said “These stories are all fun reads, all have a light hand with humourous moments, although some are more outright funny and others less so, but when you’re in the mood for something that leaves you feeling light and positive about the season it’s a great selection. All of these authors are ones I can rely on to give me a good story with strong writing and appealing characters, so you can’t go wrong with this collection.”

* At Top2BottomReviews, Lisa rated it 4.5 and said “If there’s a time of year to allow oneself to believe in the promise of love and romance, it’s the holiday season, and these five contributing authors deliver that magic beautifully in Winter Warmers, a collection of short stories that range from poignant to comical to sexy to just a little bit kinky, but will surely make you believe there’s something special about this time of year.”

* At Well Read, Jen rated it Excellent and said “Often when I read anthologies, I can select a favourite story. Not so with this one because all the stories were equally as entertaining and well written.  If you’re looking for a set of stories to chase away the cold winter weather then this anthology of contemporary stories will be perfect.. I’m looking forward to more story collections from this new press.”

* At Joyfully Jay, Jay rated it 4.5 and said “Winter Warmers is a holiday anthology by five great authors. Each one is short story length making for a solid novel-sized book. I really enjoyed the anthology and would definitely recommend it. The stories have a nice range from sweet and fun to hot and sexy.”
