Love Sherrilyn's book's I bought a nook because it is suppose to be cheaper and more environmetally friendly but I will not buy a digital version when paper back is cheaper, so I guess I wont be buying this book. What is the deal?? Very disappointed.

I bought this book to get to the story of Nikolai and Myst as I am a huge fan of the Immortals after Dark series. This was not worth the price tag and the story of Nikolai and Myst did not have a lot more info than what I got from the rest of the series. The other 2 short stories were fluff at best.

I LOVE the Immortals After Dark series! Kresley Cole is the best!

This anthology of three erotic romance tales brings together some of the most well-known names in romance -- Sherrilyn Kenyon, author of paranormal 'Dark Hunter' series­ 'among others' Jaid Black, founder of popular 'Ellora's Cave Publishing' and Kresley Cole, who made her debut into the supernatural with the first installment of 'Immortals After Dark'.'Playing Easy to Get' opens with a fun, if slightly convoluted, entry into Sherrilyn Kenyon's wickedly-acronymed 'BAD' 'Bureau of American Defense' series. Novellas are always tricky for me to review -- and Kenyon does manage to pack a lot into less than a hundred pages 'especially in regard to her hero', but the characters' evolution on the whole and the evolution of their relationship is so fast that I had trouble swallowing it. I'm all for reading about realistic, no-strings-attached physical intimacy -- and I think it makes for more believable dimensions in fiction -- but there was very little bridge from sex to 'true love'. Vince Cappelletti is ex-mafia-turned-good-guy who gets signed up to work undercover as security on what amounts to be Fantasy Island. Allison George is lucky Georgia girl who wins a trip to said Fantasy Island. Needless to say, things go to hell in a handbasket quickly when Vince's past catches up to him, and Allison ends up caught in the crossfire. The two end up on the run, and romance grows. Not too bad, overall, and entertaining to take up an hour or so -- Kenyon's usual romp of violence and hotness. 6.5/10 I'm usually not a fan of Nordic settings, but Black offers enough twists on the usual tales to keep her offering fresh. Sofia Rowley, after losing her brother and with him the last member of her family, is taken captive by neo-Viking warriors and auctioned off at the block. As she soon learns, she is no slave, but rather the bride of a warrior whose nearly-instant love for her starts to warm even her own frozen heart. As mentioned already, this novella has a neat concept, and in a longer length and with a bit more fleshing out, it wouldn't be too bad. It has a little too much of a male-centric feel, though certainly not misogynistic, and the development between characters happens far, far too easily. Take a read if you're already buying the anthology. 5.5/10 The longest, last, and by-and-far best tale in the book is penned by then-newcomer to the paranormal scene, Kresley Cole. 'Immortals After Dark' was not yet one of the best-selling series on the market, but this is without a doubt still worthy of the same accolades.Cole introduces -- and does a remarkable job of -- creating an entire paranormal realm in under two-hundred pages, while fleshing out a believable, hot romance. Varying factions within the 'Lore' -- the supernatural side of our world -- are battling for power, even amongst their own species. Nikolai Wroth, soldier in a 'good guys' vampire army bent on destroying the killers of their kind, stumbles across a conundrum of a female who just might be his predestined mate. Unfortunately for him, Myst, a Valkyrie and immortal warrior, has other plans for the vampires she finds, and it takes all of Wroth's resources and strength to even keep her around long enough to seduce. I loved this story, and while all of Cole's following books are good, this little tale which introduces it all is one of the best nuggets in the series. Whether or not you liked the full-length novels, this is an exercise in 'how, properly, to write romance' -- not to mention 'how, properly, to write erotica'. The tale's hot as hell 'with all puns intended', with hints at D/s and fiery power-play -- this is not to be missed. 8.8/10

I have had this book since 2009. I hadn't had the chance to read it because I had so many other books I wanted to read plus I was in the midst of getting my blog off the ground. Recently I have been so consumed with trying to read all the books I had been given by some amazing authors that I haven't had time to stop and smell the roses so to speak. I had just finished reading an e-book for review on my PC, when out of the corner of my eye I spied Playing Easy To Get. I was tired of having to read e-books on my PC (my awesome e-reader is broken so I am stuck reading my e-books on my PC) and I just wanted to be able to hold a book in my hand and leave my room at the same time. That's when I thought I would take a teeny tiny break from my author requested reads and just read for the pure pleasure of it. Don't get me wrong I love the books I am asked to review but sometimes you just need a "for me" book. I am so glad I did because this book was AWESOME. I was able to sample three authors in one book. I have like 2 books from Sherrilyn Kenyon but haven't read them and I have never read anything by Jaid Black or Kresley Cole. This book, in my opinion, was a great introduction to their writing styles. Each novella gives you a glimpse into 3 amazing series, which I have in turn add to my to be read pile. You have Kresley Cole's Immortal's After Dark Series #1, Sherrilyn Kenyon's B.A.D. Series #1.5, and Jaid Black's Vikings Underground Series #3. Sherrilyn Kenyon has her heroine into a particular romance novel and debating on whether to enter a dream of a lifetime sweepstakes while her hero is on the run from some shady guys hiding out and trying to maintain a low profile. Jaid Black has her heroine grieving the loss of her brother and bemoaning her lonely life while her hero is an old school Viking who lives underground and follows some very ancient teachings of his people. Kresley Cole has her heroine as a very scheming Valkyrie who will stop at nothing to punish any man who is deserving while her hero is a 300 or so year old Vampire who was made because he was a warrior but not really accepted because he was not born into the supernatural world. Each story has something for everyone and the hot hook-ups are a nice added touch. The work with the story and are not just added to fill up space. On a scale from 1-10 I give Playing Hard To Get a great BIG 10. If you enjoy a good with characters you can enjoy and possible relate to then Playing Easy To Get is the book for you. Everyone 18+ should pick up a copy and enjoy where the stories take them.
