I gave this five stars because it was so much more than I expected. I don't usually read anthologies of short stories, preferring longer books of the Wolf Hall variety so that I can get to know and understand the characters. The appeal of this book was the ingenuity displayed by a group 18 authors who could develop and tell so many different versions of convincing relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars ' The best thing about this book is that it offered many ... 18 November 2015
By Alexia Janie Evans - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"Sweet and Spicy: A Celebration of Romance" is a collection of stories from several authors. It's part of the 'Melbourne Romance Writers Guild-Silver Anniversary Anthology.' The best thing about this book is that it offered many different stories. Each one was short enough, and gave the reader just a bite of what the story was about. If you're pressed for time and like to read short novellas you'll really enjoy this book. The book is rated in Chilli Ratings depending on the 'heat' aka hotness of the stories. So if you like not so hot love scenes you get a one or two rating. At three chillies you start getting some explicit scenes. Four chillies frequent sexual scenes and more graphic language, and Five chillies is super HOT and SPICY. If you like reading just a little bit of love don't read anything higher than three, but if ----like me---- you like reading a little bit more erotic scenes you'll be able to handle a higher rating. Very enjoyable.

Sweet and Spicy: A Celebration of Romance
By Melbourne Romance Writers Guild, Serena Sandrin-Tatti, Louise Reynolds
This is a collaboration of many authors writing short stories and being published as one book. There are all marked with a Chili rating of one which means sweet through a Chili rating of five which is super-hot & very spicy. Kind of lets you read the ones you want to or read them all.
The stories are long enough for you to truly understand what is happening with each one and yet short enough that if gives the readers a bit of what the story is about. If you are short on time it always you to read the short story and know the beginning to the end.
The book starts off with one story that is rated a five on the chili scale and is Pleasures Exotic by Andra Ashe where they are married and still looking for that added spice to their marriage.
The book ends with Cold Case Warm Heart by Michelle Somers which is a romantic suspense story. A homicide detective has 24 hours to catch a killer. The murdered victim’s son wants justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Sweet & Spicy 14 February 2017
By Servangirl - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was blessed with a free copy of this book, and have chosen of my own volition to leave this review.

Truly Sweet and Spicy! The book is full of short stories, which are each rated on their own level of spice. Ranging from 1 chili for the sweet romances to 5 chilies for the very spicy-explicit reads. I appreciated the rating scale, so I could bypass the spiciest choices.

Each author submitted fantastic pieces, showcasing their own particular genre and writing styles. I appreciated the brevity of the stories, which allowed me to sample some authors that I had not heard of before. There is a little bit of everything in this book: from historical romance to science fiction types of romantic stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 22 November 2015
By N. Shiv - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Melbourne Romance Writers Guild-Silver Anniversary Anthology Sweet and Spicy: A Celebration of Romance is collectively one of the most delicious set of stories I've read by some of the most talented authors around. The various short-stories are well-written and easy to read and each has different levels of heat. They are either hot or spicy, as the title suggests, and each has its own happy ending. The stories flow smoothly and each sucks you into the unfolding deliciousness happening between the pages. This is the kind of anthology you'd want to pick up and read when you need your dose of romance, drama and sexy times but have little time to indulge yourself in a big book. Each story is Chilli rated from 1-5 according to their level of hotness and spicy. If you're more the type of person who is into erotic short stories 3-5 is for you. But if you're into the tamer stuff 1-2 is for you then. Overall, I found Hot and Spicy to be a good anthology of short stories. I enjoyed it. Thank you very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read 21 November 2015
By Mrs. Helen Sibbritt - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great collection of short stories from authors who are members of The Melbourne Romance Writers Guild in celebration of twenty five years and the stories are so good, and all of them are different, different genres of romance and this is such a great way to find new authors and try different genres.

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories and the chilli rating on them is good :) I will be looking out for releases from these authors to try more of their stories. These group of stories took us back in time to paranormal realms and in the now and suburbia and I am sure that you will find ones that standout but will enjoy all of them.

I do highly recommend reading this book and journey to many HEA that will have you on the edge of your seat shedding a few tears and as always with a wonderful romance smiling thank you ladies for hours of reading pleasure.
