Six authors, one blurb, six stories. Check it out!
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.
From the second I first heard about this collection of stories, I knew I needed to read it. Six authors were given the same blurb, and they each had to create their own story from it. I was so excited to see what these authors came up with, and I couldn’t wait to dive in.
The authors were a mix of ones I’d read before, and a few I had yet to read, so I really didn’t know what to expect from some of them, and the biggest surprise for me was that my favourite story came from a new-to-me author! I love, loved loved Ainsley Booth’s story! Toby completely stole my heart and I would love to read more from him. At the end of that story, Ainsley mentions that it was the second book in her series (though about different characters), so I headed straight to Amazon and picked up the other book. That alone shows what a great idea these collections are, readers find new authors, and authors gain new readers!
It wasn’t just Ainsley’s I loved. Jana Aston was up first and it was everything you’d expect from a Jana book, fun, flirty, and fantastic! Kitty French’s book was also the hilarious and sexy ride you would expect from her, until it takes on a very unexpected twist! These stories might all be short but they’re definitely well packed with action and adventure, and let’s not forget a good old helping of romance!
It was great to see how different Jana, Ainsley, Kitty, BJ Harvey, Raine Miller, and Liv Morris’ stories were considering they all shared the same blurb, and I think this is definitely something that could catch on. So if you fancy something a little bit different, want to find some new authors, or revisit some favourites, Love In Transit is definitely the way to go.
