Appassionata: "Piano technician Brennan Connelly lives to control details: the tension on a piano string or the compression of hammer felt. But he's never faced demands like those heaped on him by Kristy Kwong, the diva who's haunted his dreams for two decades. Kristy's got her own secrets--the debilitating stage fright that's kept her from performing publicly for years, to start--and this concert is the last chance to save her career. But can he locate her lost passion without losing his precious control?"-- Unraveled: "Math teacher Simon Burnham--cool, calm, controlled--can't abide problems with no good solution. Which makes his current work assignment, mentoring art teacher Poppy Wick, nothing short of torture. She's warm but sharp. Chaotic but meticulous. Simultaneously the most frustrating and most alluring woman he's ever known. And in her free time, she makes murder dioramas. Murder dioramas, for heaven's sake. But the more tightly wound a man is, the faster he unravels--and despite his best efforts, he soon finds himself attempting to solve three separate mysteries: a murder in miniature, the unexplained disappearance of a colleague ... and the unexpected theft of his cold, cold heart"-- Caught looking: "When best friends Yariel and Hatuey's gaming night turns into an unexpected and intense hook up, Hatuey can't wait to do it again. Yariel is less certain--the major leaguer might seem to all the world like he has a heart of stone, but he's been carrying a torch for his friend for years, and worries this will ruin the most important relationship in his life. That means Hatuey has to do all the work, and he's planning to give it all he's got. After all, Yariel may be the one hitting home runs on the field, but Hatuey is playing a game of seduction. Yariel may be made of stone, but Hatuey knows exactly how to make him crumble"-- Yes, and: "When rheumatologist Darren Zhang accidentally sits in on acting teacher Joan Lacy's improv class, he's unprepared for the attraction that hits him--and he's a man who likes to be prepared. Joan is caring for her ailing mother and barely has time to keep up her art, let alone date. But as the pair play out an unlikely relationship during stolen moments, they both find themselves wanting to say yes, and ... much more"-- Tommy Cabot was here: "Massachusetts, 1959: Some people might accuse mathematician Everett Sloane of being stuffy, but really he just prefers things a certain way: predictable, quiet, and far away from Tommy Cabot--his former best friend, chaos incarnate, and the man who broke his heart. The youngest son of a prominent political family, Tommy threw away his future by coming out to his powerful brothers. When he runs into Everett, who fifteen years ago walked away from Tommy without an explanation or a backward glance, his old friend's chilliness is just another reminder of how bad a mess Tommy has made of his life. When Everett realizes that his polite formality is hurting Tommy, he needs to decide whether he can unbend enough to let Tommy get close but without letting himself get hurt the way he was all those years ago"--… (mere)

He’s Come Undone

What a delightful collection of stories that provide a bit of something for everyone! I have to say I have read three out of five books but wanted to get this review posted before finishing the book because it is just that good.

I had read Emma Barry before and loved her work. The story she wrote for this anthology was a delight to my senses…al of them…I have played a number of musical instruments, know what the movements titling each section mean and understood Kristy and Brennan so very well…and…have to say that those practice rooms reminded me of some I visited in college. Loved this story!

Olivia Dade’s story had me signing up for her newsletter. I absolutely adored art teacher Poppy Wick and the way she seemed to be able to wind math teacher Simon Burnham up with so little effort. Poppy was a strong, smart, skilled artist and teacher. Simon was also strong, smart and a skilled teacher who was a lot more than his uptightness in the beginning made me think he was. Smiling as I think of the two of them 😉

Adriana’s story is of two men that have been friends for over a decade. Perhaps they could have been together since high school but then again by waiting and really getting to know themselves and what they really want…well…their story was a fun read with a HEA that left me happy at the end.

I can’t wait to read the stories by Ruby and Cat so am going to stop writing now and get back to my reading.

Did I like this anthology? Yes
Would I read more by these authors? Definitely

Thank you to the authors for the ARC – This is my honest review.
