Who would have thought that a collection of two m/m erotic romances, a comedy staring a post-modern Cupid in lust with a human, and a menage dedicated to making a dumped bride forget the idiot who left her while adding some new sexual trick to the men would work as a collection?
They all have Valentine's Day to hold them together, and the collection is great, if you are not put off by alternative sexuality.
Hot stories of love and passion

The first story, Bachelorette by Em Petrova, is about a woman who gets dumped by her fiancé before her Valentine's Day wedding. Her father sends her to Paris to try to get her life together but instead she decides to drink all the champagne that was bought for the wedding, with the hundreds of message candy hearts she ordered. Not wanting to do much of anything, her father hires her childhood friend Olivier to watch over her and tend to anything she wants. Problem is Olivier has been in love with her since they were kids and he is bound to take their friendship to the next level. He decides to invite her to an annual Valentine's Day party he and his friends throw, the twist to this party is he and his four friends have a list of specific ladies they will go visit and entertain them sexually but this year she will be the only one on the list.
I enjoyed reading this story because it made you feel the pain Kiki was going thru and the struggle Olivier endured to get her to love him. You could see the attraction Kiki has to him but she just plays up to getting her heart broken and alcohol. At one point she does get angry and says she wants nothing to do with him, which really broke my heart for him. There are some twists to the story, which made for some steamy scenes which I won't spoil for you. You know anything with one woman and five men will make for a very interesting read. Just as an alert, there is some m/m action.
The second story is about a man living with a very serious disorder called Aspergers, which is a form of ADD, and shows the struggle of trying to have an ordinary life. Matthew Gianapolis works as a janitor in sports/concert arena, Adrian Vanderguard is the next biggest star being compared to Michael Jackson so when he comes to the arena for his last concert of his tour. Adrian is openly bisexual and vows that within six months on Valentine's Day he will finally be able to call someone his own and as soon as he sees Matthew he knows he found the person for him, little did he know Matthew was going to make that extremely difficult. Living with Aspergers also makes Matthew an introvert and it's very hard to have any type of social life or love life. Adrian hires him to be his personal assistant with the hopes of getting Matthew to date him. Adrian is intrigued because Matthew treats him like any ordinary person and not a mega superstar. There is conflict and the story goes on to show how they try to solve these issues.
I felt like something was a little lacking with this story, some areas and points could have been explained more. It is a short read but felt that it ended abruptly, would have like to known a little more about what happened to certain characters. I did like the fact that the author showed how people react to certain situations, in this case it was Matthew's issues with Aspergers and how even though Adrian said he understood he still had a hard time believing this was the real reason he acted the way he did at times. Other than some missing points, it made for a really interesting read.
