My Thoughts:

The Spring Fling Anthology by Julia Kent, Sara Fawkes, Cathryn Fox, and Lauren Hawkeye was outstanding.  All four stories instantly pulled me in and hooked me!  These authors sure know how to keep a reader's attention.  None of the stories felt rushed or cut short.  They all had a great plot, and engaging main characters.  These stories were sexy, swoon-worthy, romantic, and smoking' hot!!!  They were all tied together by a Spring Break spent in New Orleans that was used as a getaway to make a change in their lives!  All of these characters were college aged, going through the transformation from young adult to an adult, and all dealt with exploring new things, and taking chances!

A common thread in all of the stories was a wise fortune teller, Madame Ysabeau.  Some of our main characters were non-believers in what she had to say, but Madame Ysabeau was never wrong.  The setting of New Orleans, during Mardi Gras, Spring Break was easy to visualize.  All of the authors gave me a great sense of place, with the beautiful and old buildings, music, parades, crowds of people, clubs, and party atmosphere.  All of these stories were very erotic and explicit in nature.  

If you are looking for a great spring break anthology, with the amazing setting of New Orleans during Madi Gras, along with romance, sex appeal, fun, and laughter, this is the anthology to try out.  This anthology contained the very first stories that I read by Julia Kent, Sara Fawkes, Cathryn Fox, and Lauren Hawkeye.  Boy have I been missing out!  I will be adding books by these authors to my TBR List, and this sampling has lead to a treasure chest of stories that I cannot wait to devour.  I give this Spring Fling Anthology 4.5 Phenomenal, Engaging, Addicting, and Smokin' Hot Stars!!!

About the Authors:

About Julia Kent:

USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent turned to writing contemporary romance after deciding that life is too short not to have fun. She writes romantic comedy with an edge, and new adult books that push contemporary boundaries. From billionaires to BBWs to rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every book she writes, but unlike Trevor from Random Acts of Crazy, she has never kissed a chicken.

About Lauren Hawkeye (Jameson): 
Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers! Hawkeye's stories include erotic historical, steamy paranormal, and hot contemporary. Make sure to check out her work as Lauren Jameson, where her erotic romances take a walk on the wild side.

About Cathryn Fox:
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Cathryn Fox is a wife, mom, sister, daughter, and friend. She loves dogs, sunny weather, anything chocolate (she never says no to a brownie) pizza and red wine. She has two teenagers who keep her busy with their never ending activities, and a husband who is convinced he can turn her into a mixed martial arts fan. Cathryn can never find balance in her life, is always trying to find time to go to the gym, can never keep up with emails, Facebook or Twitter and tries to write page-turning books that her readers will love.

Cathryn also writes Young Adult novels under Cat Kalen and co-writes paranormal romance as Taylor Keating.

About Sara Fawkes:
Sara Fawkes has always loved spinning tales, but her romantic roots come from sneaking her mother's old Johanna Lindsay books from the dresser drawer. She's been writing stories since she was a little girl (and has the home made books from preschool to prove it), and loves creating stories and characters and interesting messes for them to get into. An avid traveler and adventure motorcyclist, her dream job includes selling everything off and leaving civilization to see the world on two wheels, writing in cafes in each country she visits, and living off her writing. In the meantime however, she lives in California with her menagerie of pets and, when not writing, loves to rebuild old motorcycles/cars with her Dude and plays with the characters in her head.
