Avery Aster’s naughty new adult novel XO, Blake shows you just how good it feels to be on top. 
If you think my besties Lex, Taddy, and Vive have had some bad luck earlier this year, cut to me at Glamorama. Last thing I remembered was dancing with Diego and Miguel from my English class, when the room started... spinning. And not in a good way! We got sick. Think Regan in The Exorcist. Taddy was rushed to the hospital. Holding on for dear life, I was carried out by the boys and taken back to their dorm.

Now I'm waking up in Diego's bed and Miguel keeps staring at me from across the room. I've wanted to get into these dudes' pants since the first day of class. But Diego told me he likes to be tied up and--wait for it--spanked. WTF! The news on TV reports that last night we all got roofied. And Vive just texted me saying that someone is out to kill her. Could this semester get any more bizarre? --Blake Morgan, college freshman, gay best friend, virgin

My Thoughts:

As with most of the anthologies that I have read, these stories have a similar theme in that they are all HOT! They vary in length with some being a little longer than others.

There were a few that weren't my favorites by I won't taint your opinion by telling you which ones. I will say that even with the stories that I liked the least, this set is a bargain.

XO, Blake by Avery Aster, Played By the Master by Opal Carew and One Night With My Billionaire Master by Cynthia Sax were my favorites from this collection.

I will warn you guys that XO, Blake by Avery Aster contains ManLove. Blake, the main character,  is gay. I have read many of Avery's other books and though this is not my usual type of read, I really got into it. It was extremely erotic, in addition to having spunky characters, some humor, drama, and a great set up for the next book.

Played By The Master was a decent length. It was the story that I started with. I enjoyed it a great deal and I was happy that the book began with it. It was hot, sensuous, a tad suspenseful, and playful. ;-)

As I already stated, you really can't go wrong with any of these stories for the price. If you like them hot and pretty quick, you should grab this while you can.

I received an ecopy of the collection in exchange for my honest opinion. This was Hot stuff!
