Overview

From a “fresh and imaginative” (The Romance Studio) voice in erotic romance come the tales of two women, each daring to challenge the boundaries of the toughest of men...But in these edgy, heated encounters, the greatest thing each woman will risk is her heart.

In “Over the Edge,” after a tragic incident during Ty Hendricks’ last tour of duty, he cut off all connection with anyone he cares about—until a night with Lauren Kincaid draws him reluctantly back into the world. Lauren sees a wounded man in danger of losing everything to his inner demons, but the sensual, no-holds-barred fight for Ty’s soul could cost Lauren her heart.

In “All on the Line,” Abby Simmons fell hard for Lieutenant Sean Winthrop, but he sacrificed their relationship when he deployed to Afghanistan. Now he’s home, full of regrets and intent on winning back the woman he never forgot. Abby gives Sean her body but holds her heart aloof, until one night of pleasure forces her to choose either her U.S. Marine...or life without him, forever.

3.5 Stars ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Calhoun knows just when to tease and when to indulge, bringing readers to the brink and back again. ~ Under the Covers First off, let us all take a moment to admire the orgasmic cover. Paul Marron does everyone some good. *ovaries explode* Anne Calhoun delivers two short stories in UNCOMMON PLEASURE that is edgy and daring. OVER THE EDGE features Ty Hendricks and Lauren Kincaid. In Ty's last assignment, an incident has caused him to cut himself off from the world. But Lauren might be enough to tempt him to come back to life. I enjoyed OVER THE EDGE. Right off the bat, you can see that Calhoun is an exception writer. Eloquent and free-flowing, the words seem to pour out of her and stream into a beautiful prose. With this level of writing and Calhoun's ability to write incredibly hot sex scenes, there is no wonder why Anne is becoming a heavily sought out name in Erotic Romance. The sex scenes are very well done. Calhoun knows just when to tease and when to indulge, bringing readers to the brink and back again. The threesome was hotter than hell and made for a great way to introduce Sean in a way that was memorable and hooks readers right in. However, I didn't immediately feel the spark between Ty and Lauren and that is why I didn't think this story was as great as it could have been. Ty is very reserved and that affected the way I connected with him. In the second story, ALL ON THE LINE, Calhoun gives Sean his own story. Abby Simmons fell in love with Sean before he was deployed in Afghanistan. Time apart meant that the both of them have moved on...or so they thought. When Sean returns home hoping to rekindle what they had, he finds Abby all grown up and a woman in her own right. I liked ALL ON THE LINE better than the first story mostly because of the hero. I thought the story and conflict was stronger in this one and the sex is great as always. The thing that bothered me about this story was the presence of another threesome. In the first story, I thought it worked well. However, by the time the threesome rolled around in this one, I immediately thought, Again? Something didn't click for me and I didn't believe in it because I couldn't understand why it was happening again. Overall, I enjoyed UNCOMMON PLEASURE. Calhoun's writing is explosive and daring. I can't wait to see what she has planned next! *ARC provided by publisher
