Review for NightShift

NightShift ~
     Kate Douglas, Crystal Jordan, Lynn LaFleur
Publisher ~ Aphrodisia
Published ~ 29 November 2011

My Rating ~ 3 out of 5
   Hotness ~ 2.5

This is an anthology with three stories by authors I had not yet read, Kate Douglas, Crystal Jordan and Lynn LaFleur. I wish I had known that Crystal Jordan’s story Taken Between was the second story in the The Between series. I loathe reading a series out of order. It’s partially my fault for not digging deeper before picking NightShift, but it would be nice to have it mentioned somewhere in an anthology’s blurb that an included story is part of a series.

Overall each story was enjoyable and incredibly HOT. I consider the Kate Douglas story Dream Catcher more of a sci-fi story than a shifter story, but since I enjoy sci-fi I had no problems with it. Crystal Jordan’s Taken Between had too much sex (I know, I know, how can that possibly be?!) and not enough plot, but still an enjoyable read. I think Lynn LaFleur’s story The Right Number was my favorite of the three although Dream Catcher was a close second.

If you’re looking for a few quick hot reads then you won’t go wrong with this anthology. I need to look into more stories by these authors.

  1. Thanks for saying you liked my novella, The Right Number. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it!


  2. You're welcome! I just picked up 'Rent-A-Stud'. Now, just need to find the time to read it! :)

  3. I wish there had been more information in this anthology about the stories--for instance, Dream Catcher launches a new series for me called Dream Catchers, and knowing that it was the beginning of a new set of stories might make the ending make more sense--but I'm glad you enjoyed the stories in spite of the guessing game! The first novel, Dream Bound, releases on June 26, and thank you for taking the time to read and post the review--and for letting me know on Twitter! I don't get there too often--it's much too easy to get lost in tweets!!!
