Five authors bring their distinct writing styles in an anthology that will have you CHASING THE DREAM.

From GA Hauser, the reader is treated to a story about a fireman who dreams of becoming a porn star who meets a pretty boy who makes him hotter than hell and turned on like no tomorrow. But Blaze has secrets that he is keeping from Clyde even as these two give into their lusts in Nasty Boys.

Sue Brown delivers a sensual story of a man who finds he is falling for two men after taking a chance in going into a gay bar. Can he accept that he is loved by two of the hottest men he ever met in Racing Raindrops?

Sammy Jo Hunt tells a story of a young man who finds himself stranded on a dark night and ends up finding more than he ever imagined with a man as mysterious as is handsome. Can Michael believe in the love of this mysterious man or be forced to be alone forever in The Soul Awakening?

Patricia Logan delivers a hot ménage story of two men who find they want to spice up their sex life by bringing in a third. Colt thinks telling Deuce his fantasy of having a threesome will doom their relationship but Deuce surprises Colt by agreeing to one threesome with the object of his lover’s imagination-Slade. Will adding Slade into their sex life destroy their love and relationship or enhance it in Chasing Deuce?

Finally, Lisa Worrall delivers a sweet ghostly story of unfilled love from over hundred and fifty years ago. When Noah Kinkade is commissioned to restore an old mansion to its former glory, he finds something much more inside it’s halls in Dreaming of You.

CHASING THE DREAM is a series of stories that have one thing in common-dreams. They can be dream lovers, dreams of riches, families or other things. These five authors deliver an anthology that left me spellbound till the very end. Each author has wonderful stories that will tease and tantalize you as you eagerly flip the pages for more. The writing is tight, the sex smoking hot and the storylines flow smoothly. I loved each story and fell a little bit in love with all the characters in this book. There was no one or two people that stole my heart. It was equally the entire cast of characters within this anthology that stole their way into my heart. Each story was wonderfully written, kept my attention and left me wondering-will these authors write longer stories featuring these characters? I am hoping they will in the future.

The characters, although in a short story, are well rounded, multi-dimensional and definitely capture your attention just from their sheer magnetism once they get on the pages. I loved how each of the stories couples’ worked through issues quickly though at times I did want to smack some sense in a few of them just for being stubborn hot heads.

CHASING THE DREAM anthology starts strong and continues to stay strong with stories that deliver emotions, sexual tension and a love that is meant to be. I loved each and every story and hope these five authors get together again for another project. I can attest that once you start this anthology, you won’t want to put it down….not even to eat dinner or sleep. I can’t wait to see what else these authors have in store for their readers individually.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
