Synopsis:

The hottest thing about a man in uniform is imagining him out of it…

They may enforce the rules, but when men in uniform are off duty and under the covers, they’re experts at breaking them. In this searingly sexy anthology, popular authors Maya Banks, Sylvia Day, and Karin Tabke present men in uniform-unzipped…

My Thoughts:

Okay, lets start with the cover on this one – can anyone say WOW!  If I walked by this on the shelf I don’t think that I could resist picking it out.  Okay, now that is out of my system on to the stories in this anthology.

Soul Possession by Maya Banks

This is the first I have read of Maya Banks and she sure did deliver.  I enjoyed the mix of a real story in with hot and steamy that is the sex in this book!  I will say that I have not read of erotica but this has to be the way to do it.  It was very vivid and descriptive but not in an offensive way.  Just eye opening that made me want to read more!  The story behind this one was very well done as well with a serial killer that Rich and Truitt are trying to hunt down and the barmaid, Jessie,  they have been trying to get into bed for weeks happens to lose her job and end up in bed with both of them since neither wants to allow the other to have her.  All in all, it was just really well done and HOT!  I will say that it left me wanting more and that is probably due to the length of the story.

Wanted by Karin Tabke

I felt like this was a much quicker read with less detail but that was almost a good thing because I was content with the story and I was not left begging for more.  Like with the first story there was a lot of hot scenes but they were still done in a manner that while expressing the heat in detail did not cross any lines.  There was a well developed story line and great character development for the length of the story.

Taking the Heat by Sylvia Day

This was a great way to round out the anthology.  My favorite part of the actually story line in this book is that the two main characters had history and while neither thought the other remembered they both did.  There is a lot of tension and stress that is placed on them since they are basically trying to run and get Layla to testify and then she will end up back in Witness Protection.  Along the way, the strong connection between them continues to grow.  There is a great sexual tension building up to the actual act something that is often difficult to express in writing.  It was well done.

My Rating:

HOT HOT just what you need sometimes! 

Okay just going to say it there are many attractive men who are so self assured they might drive you crazy!

 

  • Maya Banks does an excellent job of mixing a great storyline with erotica. If you enjoyed her, you might try her Sweet Series! I finished five books in one week. Great review. I have been wanting to read this book.
