5.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY recommend! 6 May 2015
By Carmen Falcone - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
No Quitting Allowed by Rebecca Royce- I have read Rebecca’s paranormal books before, but this is the first contemporary by her I read. Nice romance! I enjoyed how she takes us for a tour of Austin with the lovely story.

Twisted-by Cara CarnesI love the depth and emotion that Cara Carnes bring to all her novels, and this one is no different. I’m not a fan of first person POV to be honest, but her story was so cool that I was totally immersed. Caleb and Shasta are meant to be and even the secondary characters enrich the story. Well done!

Consortium by Riley Bancroft - OMG I love MOC tropes! This one delivered a whole lot of heat and a super sexy hero. Hot hot hot! Whew. A lot of times in these types of romance, the book starts before the marriage of convenience, and with Consortium we follow Chloe and Holt three weeks after they got married. They have to deal with the repercussions of the marriage and she definitely wants to be more than his “companion”. But, when he shows her his true side, will she stick around? The love scenes are sultry and sexy, and I truly enjoyed this story.

Do Over by Chandra Ryan – This was my first read by this author and certainly won’t be the last. I love books that start in the middle of the action, like this one. Poor Julie received a text from her groom saying he met someone else and won’t be marrying her—even though she’s at the church, in front of 180 guests. What a jerk! Lol. This is only the start of a fun filled book. She heads to Austin, and meets Luke. I have to say, those two had great chemistry. Smart and witty dialogue, and Julie is the type of heroine you really root for. As a damage control specialist, she users her expertise in real life and bounces right back from heartbreak. Lovely story that I won’t soon forget!

Tall Order by Irene Preston- I never read M/M, but this one caught my attention. Irene Preston’s sparkling voice drew me right into the story. I love stories with reunited lovers. As usual, Preston’s characterization is top notch, and I could picture their mannerisms and was completely pulled into the scenes. I could feel Dylan’s pain, and his guilt over having made the wrong decision in the past. This book is gluten free (ha! Thought Dylan would enjoy this) but full of flavor '

Enchanted by Evelyn Berry- What makes any music festival & anthology perfect? Fairies! I love the fairy tale elements, such as her bat, Manuel. It reminded me of Disney Princesses and their pet sidekicks. In an effort to save her mother, Aurora ends up stuck in Austin, and powerless. Thankfully, she meets Dallas. I thoroughly enjoyed Evelyn’s debut romance. Wonderful world building; one of the things I always look for in a romance novel is conflict. In this book, there’s tons of it and I was on the edge of my seat.

One Night with the Vampire by Jax Garren- I fell in love with Sofia and Alex's story. I love the set up, the sensual massage parlor ambience, and my fave part was the hero. OMG. I love a hot man with an accent, but more than that he had that old world charm. A sexy body and soulful eyes! "Horizontal he was a client, and vertical he was a man." Sofia is a smart cookie. Hehe. Highly recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Grab it! 8 May 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
No Quitting Allowed: Jake and Lana don't start out on the right foot with their first meeting. However, that soon changes as hard and fast takes over. Could a one night stand turn into something more when one wants to flee the state? Loved this story! Especially with Jakes laid back surfer dude attitude.
Twisted: what happens when your rock star ex boyfriend shows back up in town? Balcony sex, almost elevator sex and a trip to jail. Caleb comes back to reignite his old relationship with Shasta. The one he let get away. After several years she hasn't been able to close the door to her heart on him. What starts out as a way for her to get closure turns into more than she could hope for. Loved it! Series in the works and I can't wait!
Do Over: When Juliana is dumped at the alter, what's a girl to do? Beat your ex to the airport and go on your honeymoon! Luke finds Juliana alone in a crowded bar and the heat is on. Neither knows where this is going to go because she's on vacation from her life but will eventually have to go back. Or does she? Love this story!
Tall Order: Dylan slinks back to town after his dream job fell apart. The last person he expected to see at the rocker party was Win, his ex boyfriend. Can they find their way back to each other or will they forever be apart? This story was a little to sappy for me. Dylan's use of the word baby every other sentence drove me nuts.
Enchanted: Not sure this storyline really fits this book bundle. Even though the first book dabbles in the paranormal, I don't feel it with the fairies. Aurora comes to Austin to kidnap the famous rocker, DBR for her aunt in order to secure her families freedom. She didn't bargain for falling in love with a human. Will she continue on her mission or will she throw it all away for Dallas?
One Night With A Vampire: Alex has found his reason to want his soul, will Sophia accept him? One magical night is all she can give. Personal matters keeps her from accepting him. But Alex is far from accepting that. Although I enjoyed this story, it just doesn't fit with the bundle. I think it should've been one genre or the other especially since the storyline is entwined with each other. Looking forward to reading the series of Austin Immortals.
Overall opinion I enjoyed this box set. I would recommend grabbing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot as Texas, Weird as Austin, and SO Good! 8 May 2015
By Cori R - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Loved the idea of this anthology from the beginning. Sometimes anthologies are just slightly off from the best work of any of my favorite Authors. I’ve always believed that comes from the authors torquing themselves out of their own writing process to fit the constraints of a collaborative concept. Not so in this one!

The idea of a collection of stories loosely coupled around the SXSW music festival and one specific party event must have allowed all of these great authors to work in their own way because their individual creativity is apparent in each story.

There is something for everyone here: Love in all glorious flavors is woven through plot twist and turns. There is lighthearted fun and gut wrenching stakes, hard hot sex and heart melting tenderness. My personal favorite (hard to pick just one!) was ENCHANTED by Evelyn Berry. Excellent imagery and wordplay. I didn’t want it to end!

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty, spicy, totally Austin-"weird" 6 May 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don't read a whole lot in contemporary romance, but I do love Austin, and these stories totally took me there. They're witty, spicy, "weird," and so, so fun. The central rocker dude, DBR, was pretty funny in and of himself, but it was clever how all these different stories wove themselves around basically a douche, which wasn't annoying at all (and it could have been, I guess, if he'd been the protagonist in a story or something). I love how, with the various subgenres depicted, Austin is both a hip rock-n-roll mecca and a magical underground. It even has a fairy princess and a vampire underground in residence. Who knew! I can't pick just one story that I loved most. All of them were super fun, and I recommend this antho whole-heartedly.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Taste of Home 5 December 2015
By Dena - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered this anthology because I'm originally from central Texas and I wanted a taste of home. Romancing Austin did not disappoint. Centered around the SXSW festival, I related to so many of the happenings going on. I won't go into an individual review of each story, but they were all well written, interesting, and kept my attention. I hated that a few of them were short, because I wanted more.

A great variation of stories, there's a little bit of everything for romance lovers. I enjoyed them all, but especially liked Twisted, Tall Order, and Enchanted.
