I was given the privilege to read and review For The Love of Murphy Anthology in exchange for a HONEST review. In this sweet, fast and enjoyable read are 5 romances. I found all five to be well written, sweet and the type of stories that make you go “Awwwww!”. I don’t tend to do anthologies simply because if I start reading a really good story I want more. That was the only downfall of this book. I truly enjoyed all 5 stories and didn’t want to see them end. I am hoping that as time goes on the authors will expand and re-release each story on their own, so that I can get more! (What can I say, I’m a greedy person)
So I’ll review each individual story. I find it hard to just review the book as a whole when I know that I’m dealing with several stories and authors. It just doesn’t feel right (to me) to lump them all together.
