My View:

Ylva is back again with Don’t Be Shy 2.
Astrid and her crew at Ylva sure know how to bring together new authors with established authors and have a set of stories that mesh so well and seamlessly. In DBS2 She gives us the offerings of thirteen authors. Some were new to me and some I’ve already known of or read something of theirs previously. There is not a bad one in the bunch but a few really resonated with me. I’ll give you a peek at who wrote what and a quick hint as to what the story is about.

1 – Sound Bites by TM Croke and TM Ballion – A sound tech crushes on the stage managers voice. Closing night brings a whole new side for both women, Sizzling.

2 – Birthday Girl by Meghan O’Brien – Oh Sweet Mother…This EXTREAMLY hot romp focuses on a wife making her partner’s wishes come true for her birthday. Defiantly NSFW, it was also tender and endearing.

3 – Secret Admirer by Andi Marquette – Two women try to figure out who is the secret admirer of one of them, the other already knows…. Very good.

4 – A Heist to Remember by Ana Matics – A spy vs spy sort of thing with yummy sex.

5 – The Duplex by LM Perrin – A tenant has a thing for her down on herself older landlady. Sweet and loving

6 – A Beautiful Knife by Valerie Alexander – A teen longs for an older teen to take her and have her wicked way with the teen. Five years later she gets her chance… Oh so sexy and beautiful!

7 – Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder by May Dawney – A HOT Phone sex scene with a romantic ending.

8 – Welcome to Deep Springs by Cassandra McMurphy – A masseuse meets runner at a retreat where they prove to be each others treat!

9 – Waiting by D. Jackson Leigh – A BDSM feel to this story is excellent!

10 – The Symmetry of Talking in Circles by Nicole Birdstone – A couple introduces a toy and things get very interesting.

11 – The Fear of Falling by Sasha Sapphire – A stewardess and a passenger get to know each others the stewardess takes her new friend’s mind off the flight. They find they cant say goodbye in spite of Helena’s situation.

12 – Dinner and a Show by Catherine Lane – WOW!!!! This one is just too hot for words! A couple are invited over for dinner by a friend who is sort of involved in a 3 some and gives everyone else a show, whew!!

13 – The souvenir by Fletcher DeLancey – A happy couple are delighted with their new swing and I am delighted to read this!!
