Verity Michaels is new to New York City, but even she knows riding in a stolen a cab is not a normal way to meet someone. Damn it if that tattoo-covered would-be felon isn’t everywhere now, and lighting everything on fire under her skirt.
His name is Hudson Fenn, and he’s frustratingly impossible to pin down. He works as a bike messenger, but has the manners of a prince—along with a strange tendency toward breaking and entering. As much as Verity knows he’s not her type, and likely to land her in jail, she can’t help but find her truest self when they’re together.
Can she be brave enough to give Hudson a real chance? Will he be bold enough to reveal the man beneath the ink, or will his secrecy doom their connection? Also, WTF is the deal with Verity’s boss? No less than thirteen of your favorite romance writers have teamed up to tell this sexy, wacky, snort-inducing tale. With them you’ll visit the world’s most irritating office, a VIP room of questionable cleanliness, and the fanciest apartment a bike messenger has ever inhabited, but you’ll still never see this ending coming.

No less than thirteen well-established authors so how on earth, we asked ourselves, did these ladies accomplish such a feat and why, in the name of literacy art, would they want to do what they have done! Never taking anything for granted in this cut-throat self-publishing book world, we could only imagine the fun they must have had, the work involved, and the dedication to get it right while sharing files, chats and discussions toing and froing every detail of a book written on this scale. Perhaps because of their desire to pull off the impossible between true friends and professionals in their expertise, or perhaps because they wanted to make a dream come true. Only they know why. The bottom line is without a doubt, a read which has shown us that there is still confidence and respect for one another’s works. And the urge to do something new and refreshing is by far, the very best way to show the reader that when there is a will, there is a way.
“… I love the tattoos. I could lick all of them all day and not get bored. The one on your stomach? That’s breakfast, lunch and dinner…”
Ms. Anastasia sets the first scene where we meet Verity Michaels who happens to find herself between a rock and a hard place. Well, in a cab actually. Not ashamed to say what she thinks and in her early twenties, we loved her sassiness. We could easily picture her in a job which wasn’t exactly right up her alley. New surroundings are a tad overwhelming for her, but what the heck, she’s game for just about anything within reason. Eager to get to know her adopted city is going to take her on a journey or two. Us too!
“Don’t put words in my mouth.”
“Would you prefer something else?”
From then on in, chapter after chapter flows with such an ease that we were to put it mildly, more than impressed. The character development isn’t in the least bit hindered by the thirteen writers; the storyline grabs you, the mystery surrounding the male protagonist kept us stuck to every page. Don’t you just love unanswered questions? Messages flew between us as we were trying our hardest to fathom out who he was. It has to be said that the Verity was also wondering what made Hudson tick as much as we were. Our constant texting was comparable with Verity’s ‘tweeting’ abilities; mind you, hers were much better than ours. And then the packages delivered daily to Verity’s boss. Never could we have ever guessed what was inside each one! When all was revealed, we weren’t the only ones who were shocked!
“…you’re charming the pants right off me, Tattoo.”
“You’re wearing a skirt. Does that mean you’re commando, Honeybee?”
Hudson! What a very secretive, intriguing and sexy guy he was. We simply adored him. He had a tendency to pop up at some of the best moments, too. We couldn’t quite make him out to start with as he did keep a lot of information back about himself. Hence the secretiveness! He is everything Verity does not go for in a man but he is just too irresistible for words. He has the manners of a white knight but the personality traits of a tattooed bad ass biker, so what’s not to love about him, right? We could definitely see why Verity had issues in keeping away from him!
“How do you want me to fuck you?”
“Hard and fast, or slow and easy?”
“Next time hard and fast so you can you your favourite hashtag.”
Fifty percent into the book and author, Katherine Stevens, had us in fits. Envisaging the reason for Verity’s embarrassment was absolutely hilarious and a bit painful. Although she needn’t have worried because there was a solution at hand! A super-sexy-hot-solution! But previously, all the authors had had us enthralled with the way each and every one of them added to the plot and developed the storyline.
“You’re a total criminal, aren’t you?”
“Have I stolen your heart yet?”
“Don’t answer. I won’t take it until you give it freely.”
Giggles and innuendos were definitely the name of the game in this book! We lost count of the full on belly laughs we had throughout this read. To say we were a little worried about mixing 13 authors different writing styles in one book would be an understatement; however, those fears were totally unfounded. Their own unique writing styles blended together like a cup of your favourite barista style coffee! If you are looking for a light, funny and simply side splitting read with a couple of twists thrown in just for good measure, then look no further because this book delivers in spades! Bravo ladies.
