***MY REVIEW***

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Overall Rating of Anthology based on stories I read: 4 out of 5 stars

"Foolish Expectations" by Alison Bliss - 5 out of 5 stars (Favorite Story in Collection)
"Under the Evening Star" by Shyla Colt - 4 out of 5 stars
"Shadow Ranch" by Robin Covington - 4 out of 5 stars
"Brazen" by Avery Flynn - Did Not Read
"Screwed" by Kelly Jamieson - 5 out of 5 stars
"Stripped" by Abby Niles - 5 out of 5 stars
"Wrecked" by Terri Osburn - Did Not Read
"Not the Marrying Kind" by Julie Particka - 4 out of 5 stars
"One Forbidden Virgin" by Joya Ryan - 4 out of 5 stars
"Sweet Surrender" by Naima Simone 5 out of 5 stars (Second Favorite Story in Collection)

So I was going to originally write separate reviews for every story in this collection, but after thinking it over I think it's best to just write one review for the 8 stories that I had the time to read in this anthology. The Sutherland anthology was full of so many fantastic contemporary romance stories. As you can see from my individual ratings for each story, every story I read was either a 4 star read or a 5 star read. All of the authors who contributed to the collection really brought their A game with their stories and delivered fun, flirty emotional reads that had me reading way past my bedtime. And the best thing about the collection was that there was a little bit of everything for everybody. The stories in the collection range from accidental pregnancies and marriages of conveniences to swoon-worthy M/M romance and steamy BDSM romance and I thoroughly enjoyed every single story I read. The only thing I kind of hoped the authors would have done in this collection that they didn't do as much was make it clear how all the Sutherlands were connected. I get that it's a big family and some characters did crossover from one story to the next, but I kind of wanted the connections between them to be more obvious and more important in all of the stories. Regardless, all of the stories were great and I highly recommend this anthology because trust me it doesn't disappoint.
