    The 1st story, Something Wild, was good but a bit scary. I mean, Jacob acted like a stalker most (if not all) of the time and I thought Annie should've been more careful around him. Good thing she fell in love with him, because she wouldn't have been able to get rid of him otherwise. The 2nd story, Meltdown, was really good. It had the markings to push me the wrong way - the insta-f*cking and the insta-HEA (Mac and Jane were "in love" less than 12 hours after first meeting each other and were eng The 1st story, Something Wild, was good but a bit scary. I mean, Jacob acted like a stalker most (if not all) of the time and I thought Annie should've been more careful around him. Good thing she fell in love with him, because she wouldn't have been able to get rid of him otherwise. The 2nd story, Meltdown, was really good. It had the markings to push me the wrong way - the insta-f*cking and the insta-HEA (Mac and Jane were "in love" less than 12 hours after first meeting each other and were engaged a few days later!) - but SM made it work. Besides having a lot of sex, Mac and Jane really talked to each other and I believed they were going to be good together in the long run. Oh, and I loved the scene where Jane kinda "scared" Mac sexually, because it took some of the edge off of him and put them on the "same ground", so to speak. The 3rd story, Touch Me, was the weakest. I didn't like either Jonah or Tess very much. Jonah, I couldn't trust him after he lied to get her into his beach house and I really didn't buy his "excuse". As for Tess, she was just an emotional mess and I couldn't care less. In the end, I think they deserved each other. My recommendation: don't buy this book, get it from the library, read the 2nd story and forget the other 2. The stories aren't related, so you won't miss anything by doing that.

    Something Wild: Annie Simon has just left her abusive boyfriend. She had enough one day and grabbed what she could and ran. Along the way to the Black Cat Casino, where she's hoping to make enough to fund another future, she makes a meandering trail through the various parks and scenic trails along the East Coast. Also along the way she picked up a fan. An obsessed fan, who keeps cruising along her wake on a gorgeous Harley. Jacob Kerr has been following Annie, just trying to get her to talk to Something Wild: Annie Simon has just left her abusive boyfriend. She had enough one day and grabbed what she could and ran. Along the way to the Black Cat Casino, where she's hoping to make enough to fund another future, she makes a meandering trail through the various parks and scenic trails along the East Coast. Also along the way she picked up a fan. An obsessed fan, who keeps cruising along her wake on a gorgeous Harley. Jacob Kerr has been following Annie, just trying to get her to talk to him. When he finally does get past her prickly defenses, he comes on hard and fast, dominant and possessive. He's relentless in forcing Annie to accept him and despite her reticence, her defenses don't stand a chance. This little novella came on incredibly strong. Jacob Kerr was almost too much man for me. I think I would have needed a restraining order on this guy. I don't see how he was ever going to let her go. Kind of creepy, but since it all worked out, I guess it was good. The visceral image of a guy punching through a wall has always intimidated me so maybe that's why I was almost afraid of Jacob. He's definitely hot and his sexuality is smokin, but he kind of freaked me out. Plus, Annie was already running from a scary guy to begin with. :/ Meltdown: Jane Duvall is a headhunter and she's on the hunt for Mr. Finley from Crowne Royale. Using her best acting skills, she lies her way past the receptionist but when she gets there, Mr. Finley isn't in, but wouldn't she rather meet the CEO of the company, Michael MacNamara? Trapped, Jane has no choice but to brazen it out and when she meets Michael, their instantaneous chemistry is palpable and electrifying. What started out as just instant chemistry, quickly became obsession in the best kind of way. I loved this one. Something Wild was the appetizer and Meltdown was an absolutely delicious main course. I just sank my teeth into this gorgeous hunk of man and I loved Jane, too. Mac was obsessive without being scary and his sexuality made me melt. His attempts to win Jane over was incredibly sweet and romantic and I wish this could have been a full length novel. I loved it and I recommend you read this anthology for this novella alone. Touch Me: Jonah has alot going on right now and when his secretaries and doctor recommend he get some R&R, Tess Langley is the lucky massage therapist who gets to rub her special massage oil all over him. His bid for relaxation immediately backfires when he gets a good look at Tess and as she turns him down time and time again, he comes up with a different strategy. Since gentle coaxing isn't working, he tries manipulation and luring. He sets up a house party that is void of other guests and there he stages his seduction. Wow! And not in a good way. I've never met a more b*tchy heroine before. True, she's got issues and she's been dumped on and belittled by a truly horrendous mother but still. I did not like Tess and she did not deserve someone as wonderful as Jonah. The only thing she should have had coming was a lump of coal in her stocking. Grrrr. It was also not believable that one day she would fly off the handle about every little comment and then the next day be completely past it and secure in Jonah's love, but whatever.

I love Shannon McKenna. I love her men...the larger than life, stalkerific, uber-macho alpha male is just not something I have ever experienced in real life. Seriously, who wouldn't want their fantasy man to be so taken with them that he follows her over state lines and only seeks to give her multiple O's! The passion and sheer will of force are what make McKenna's men so appealling. They do border on scary at times, but when the heroine points out that he is scaring her...he stops dead in his tracks. If ever "no" is uttered, her men stop and only start again when the woman begs...that is not creepy or restraining order worthy. This is fiction...seriously. No one does these things in real life. You want real life, read the fantastic book called, "Love Drunk Cowboy". Sweet, lovely, dating with just the ever so slight snippet of kisses and slow simmering longing...you want raw, demanding, comanding lust...Read this one! IMHO...fantastic read.

Third, after running away from her abusive ex she lets the Strange guy who is following her sleep with her and then let's him treat her very closely to what her ex did. Fourth, her inner monologue talks about being "cowed" and "submissive" and not liking it. Also she cries during and sobs after the sex and the "hero" shows very little compassion or remorse for his treatment of her. Basically I thought this was more fantasy than romance, but it made me feel kinda dirty. Meltdown** Well this was a lot better. Mac seemed like an ok guy, maybe a little slutty. It's kinda like Jekyll and Hyde though, guy had major mood swings. Probably only gonna skim 3rd story.

    For an anthology, this was an excellent read, especially if you like Shannon McKenna's stuff. Lots of hot, angry sex, but the tender moments made the stories very meaty. The only downside was that the characters were all very similar: women with self-confidence issues with love/hate feelings about their masterful, needy, overprotective men. Typical McKenna, but I just love her writing style. The second story was my favorite - I adored the way the HEA came about.

    3 of McKenna's super short stories from other anthos- all stamped with her trypical ultra steam factor and uber alpha males. The first two were my favs the last? meh. If you're looking for quick super charged sexy reads- this be it.

I ended up DNFing this one after the second story and writing off Shannon McKenna as an author I will probably not enjoy. I did some research and all evidence points to this author writing heroes who are overly controlling, borderline (or completely) obsessive about the heroines, domineering and who are just plain old assholes with disgusting attitudes towards women and their own rights towards them.

I did some research and all evidence points to this author writing heroes who are overly controlling, borderline (or completely) obsessive about the heroines, domineering and who are just plain old assholes with disgusting attitudes towards women and their own rights towards them. I vastly prefer my MCs to end up in more loving, healthy relationships with one another rather than feeling like the HEA is only until the hero loses his cool and slaps his wench good for disobeying him. This author’s relationships feel one step away from abuse (if not there already). Definitely not for me, but YMMV. Something Wild - 1 /5 - Oy vey. Annie Simon is on an independent trip, sort of her comeback from being with an abusive ex and she’s being followed by a biker. Motorcycle Man is actually Jacob, who saw her a ways back on her trip, became instantly obsessed by her and began stalking her across several states. He catches up to her in a campground and she lets him have wild hot monkey sex with her. But he’s not done after one. He follows her some more and the pattern repeats. Each time though, Jacob gets a little more controlling and Annie feels overwhelmed by his passion for her. But she can’t deny how good it feels to have someone love her the way he does. Well, yeah. At first. Until he loses control and ends up abusive because she’s not acting the way control-freak Jacob wants her to act...because she’s not comfortable accepting the “strength of his passions.” This was not a romance, this was a crime waiting to happen. Jacob doesn’t really respect Annie’s boundaries, he’s so obsessed with her that he gets riled up and angry when she puts him off. He forcibly seduces her and leaves her sobbing because she doesn’t want him to have sex with her when he’s angry, but does he feel any remorse? No. Not really. It’s all about the fact that HE wants to take care of her, even if she doesn’t want it. It’s so bad that she actually escapes him...runs from him while his back is turned. And he shows up at her destination a week or so later and she’s all happy and thrilled to see the love of her life again. I just couldn’t with these people. So the HEA is that she ends up with a controlling, obsessive jerk who is probably going to abuse her. Yay. Meltdown - 2 /5 - Jane is a headhunter looking to steal away a manager from Crowne Royal Group, run by Mac. She uses a bit of deceit to get in the door and ends up having to stick with it when she meets Mac and ends up on a tour with him. The attraction between them is immediate and intense - and takes over their tour. Before Jane can manage to tell him the truth he’s pounding her into the mattress and making her scream her head off. The he confronts her with the fact that he knows he lied. When he finds out about what, it’s no big deal and he feels relieved that he can now be totally free with the wild sex without all the mushy courting stuff. Jane already knows he’s a sex-animal, so why not stick with it? Except for Jane, it’s all a little too intense for her because she can feel herself falling for Mac, but does she really want to give up control? I’ve now read two stories by this author and I’m not a fan of how she writes her heroes. Mac is overly intense...so much so that he frequently doesn’t listen to Jane when she says she doesn’t want something, because he’s reading her body and not listening to her words. He insists she likes what he’s doing and she eventually agrees. But I didn’t like how controlling he seemed. I also didn’t care for the fact that these two spent the majority of the night yelling, snapping and having kind of angry sex. So when it came time for the love, I wasn’t feeling it. And Mac got borderline insane about keeping her with him. Fortunately he realized he was going overboard, but he was mostly unapologetic for his overall attitude, only how he went about dealing with her wanting to leave. And then next thing you know, he’s talking about getting married and she wants babies right away and I’m like - WAIT. He’s volatile and has already shown how crazy he can get...you really want to jump into marriage that quick? Way too much intensity. Makes for a sexy story, but not a very romantic one for me.

A masterful hotel CEO introduces his lovely date to a suite seduction she'll never forget. And a sexy billionaire invites a massage therapist to his mountain hideaway for a sensational session just for two... At this point, I've only read the first one but thought I would just add to my review as I finished each one. SOMETHING WILD Something Wild had potential even thought the basis of the story line is kind of creepy. Rich, good looking alpha Jacob spots Annie one day and is mesmerized. Both on the road doing some traveling, Jacob begins to follow Annie across the country until he finally makes his move on her. Okay, I admit it was creepy but in "book life" I was willing to overlook it. The thing that ruined the story for me is that Annie is a complete freaking bitch. I don't care what her history is or why she acts the way she does, I just didn't like her at all. The actual story was pretty steamy, exactly what I expected from Shannon McKenna “I’m doing it because I love watching you come. I love when you clench up and squeeze my cock inside you, when you make those sexy sounds, when your face gets all rosy red. I just cannot…get…enough of it... I'm giving it three stars because the writing was good and the steam was nice even though I didn't really like it overall. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get over how much I did not like Annie and it ultimately ruined the story for me. BOO! Hopefully, the other two novellas have characters that are easier to like!

    I have to admit that Shannon McKenna stories are, like, total catnip for my brain. I love her books like whoa even though her dudely protagonists are the same, her lady protagonists are the same, her villains are all Super Crazy with a side of brain control, and generally speaking, all of the POC characters exist as either cannon fodder or as Crazy Villains. I don't know what it is about her particular brand, but clearly it's one I'm buying.

Here is a collection of three previously published short stories, without the suspense plots, but all in the same vein as the McCloud series. Wealthy-but-not-too-wealthy, super-gorgeous-but-not-effeminate alpha dudes who, once they lay eyes on their lady love, just can't help themselves from steamrolling right over them; totally-beautiful-but-unaware-of-it ladies who haven't had a good lay, ever, in the history of everything, until their dudely-dudes come along and shows them exactly what they've been missing, and who had previously been shy and retiring types until their manly-man showed up and unleashed their inner Valkyrie; and an emotional separation caused by a big misunderstanding before they get their HEA. As a collection, this book definitely shows that McKenna is kind of a one-trick pony, but I think that if you like her other stuff and haven't read these stories when they were published in other anthologies, you'll probably be into it.

All 3 stories take place in a relatively short period of time. Combustible interactions, and unique backdrops for each of the three. Really good, thoughtful and thought provoking dialogue really add to the excellence of these stories. And of course there's plenty hot sexy action throughout each. I checked this one out from library but wish I owned it- it is re-read worthy!

    I thought all three stories were good, very intense as the male characters are very dominant in their general character and really push the women to their limits. All three women were overcoming a bad relationship in the past and and suffered personally from that so the male characters really pushed them to risk their hearts and fall in love with them. I think the male characters were a bit over powering in some parts and I just thought they were dickheads!!!

    All right - I tend to avoid short stories, especially in romances. I feel that you need more time to create the relationship. My problem with these stories was that they were the pretty much the same story just with different names and locations. Almost the EXACT same things happened in the SAME order in each of the three stories. It got boring by the last one.

    I love the sex scenes in this one. Hot and Steamy. 3 different books in one. Of the 3, only the last one was really worth reading if you wanted somewhat of a story line. I would read again though.
