Story Overview:

Flipping For Chelsea by Emma Holly
MyRating: A+

In Emma Holly's 
FLIPPING FOR CHELSEA, Shay and Liam shared an unforgettable night with their lifelong friend, Chelsea, awakening a rush of forbidden feelings--feelings they have to reckon with when the three reunite, and the unrequited lust between them is too much to bear.
My Review:
I LOVED this novella! These three have been friends since they were kids, but that didn't keep things from getting complicated fast when they spent an afternoon exploring those feelings. Now it's 14 years later and they all have sorted out in their heads where they want this relationship to go. 
This story was beautiful. There is no doubt that all 3 of these characters love each other deeply. I love that as adults, they have all chosen complementary career fields... just another testament to how closely woven their psyches really are. This novella was sexy, heart-breaking, scintillating, and simply all-around HOT reading. LOVED it! I need to find more by Emma Holly!

Dirty/Bad/Wrong by Lauren Dane
My Rating: A-
Though Ava left her hard-knock Georgia childhood behind, she never forgot Luca and Angelo. Together they were best friends with a bond that could never be broken. But when she returns, the three must decide whether to face the fires that burn between them, or forgo their desires forever in Lauren Dane's 
DIRTY/BAD/WRONG.
My Review:
Ava left town 10 years ago leaving things unresolved with Luca and Angelo after a passionate few months between the 3 of them. She hasn't seen either of them since, but they have all maintained contact. I liked that there is a true friendship between the 3 of them- it kept things really honest and upfront for them. The story line was hot and believable. I liked this one a lot esp. Angelo's character- he has a lot of depth that make the story that much more interesting.

Just One Night by Megan Hart 
My Rating: B-
In Megan Hart's 
JUST ONE NIGHT, fun-loving couple Kerry and Jeremy find themselves in a triangle of trouble when Kerry's old crush, Brian, returns for a school reunion, and Jeremy gives her his enthusiastic approval to seduce him. But while Jeremy has no trouble sharing Kerry, Brian isn't sure he can handle what's coming.
My Review:
This was a different kind of menage & I can't decide whether I liked it or not. I definitely did not like Jeremy's character, but I loved Bryan and Kerry together. Overall, the story line was a bit "meh" for me. 
Loved: Bryan
Liked: Kerry's boldness
Hated: Jeremy's attitude about Kerry


On the Job by Bethany Kane
My Rating: D

Years ago, Walker walked out on Madeline when she needed him most. Now, the ex-Secret Service agent is back--hired to protect Madeline by her billionaire boss, Tony. Madeline is determined to make him pay for denying her desires--and she's not above bringing Tony in to sweeten the deal in Bethany Kane's 
ON THE JOB.
My Review:
Hmmm, this story didn't do anything for me. I didn't really like any of the characters in the story so that was pretty much a killer for any enjoyment that I might have gotten out of the story.

I've only read one anthology recently so these are still new for me. The next one I have sitting on my shelf has SEVERAL short stories but it looks like I might need to check this one out and read the stories. It looks like you enjoyed all of them except the last one...which I've noticed is something normal with anthologies, there's always at least one that you don't really care for. Great review, I love how you made it so short yet effective! :-D

Three to Tango looks excellent and I need a naughty read for this month (realized I haven't done my one a month yet)!
