Summary

The Marians aren’t the only ones finding their happy ever after! In this collection of four short stories, some of our beloved secondary characters from the Made Marian series steal the show and find a love of their own. These stories feature plenty of laughs, Marian cameos, and steamy nekkid bits. You do not need to have listened to any other Made Marian novel to enjoy these stories. Please be aware that two of these stories can also be found in the Made Marian Collection bundle.

Brad's story: When Brad opens his Vegas hotel room door to find a hot police officer waiting on the other side, he assumes crazy Aunt Tilly has sent him a strip-o-gram. But instead of getting naked, Detective Gorgeous pulls out his cuffs. Turns out, the badge and uniform aren't just props; this cop is the real deal.

Beck's story: After touring around the world, sleeping with fans after sold-out concerts, Beck is still unsatisfied in the bedroom. Men, women, men and women? He doesn't know quite what he's looking for when he enters an exclusive club to find some company for the night. But two sexy strangers begin dancing with him at the same time, and Beck finally begins to realize it might not be variety he's after, but just the right set of lips whispering sexy words into his ear.

Keller's story: After telling Tilly to back off her attempt at setting him up, Keller catches sight of the nude model for the old lady's art class. Did he speak too soon? Meanwhile, stand-in model Eli is regretting his decision to strip down for a group of senior citizens, but then meets the manager of the vineyard and realizes being naked might not be so bad after all. Especially when things get wet...like really very wet...with hoses.

Josh's story: After moving from Denali, Alaska, to San Francisco in order to branch out, Josh hosts a big poker night for the Marians and his coworkers at the National Park Service. Little does he know, his own true love may not be someone new after all. Eight years ago, Cyrus Dimakos had to leave the love of his life to take care of his great-grandmother on a remote island in Greece. A family obligation may have kept Cyrus's body away from Josh all this time, but his heart never left him. Could it be that the one that got away is finally back for good?

Secondary characters find their match!

I can’t say that I necessarily thought about the characters featured in this anthology after briefly meeting them in previous Maid Marian novels, but I sure am glad I listened to this audiobook. Each story offers a funny moment or surprise that makes reading or listening to them worth it. In a short story, there is no time for the characters to get to know each other well before developing feelings. I am one of those who finds quickly developed feelings between characters pretty believable. I think I just want to believe that anything is possible when it comes to love. So suspend your disbelief and enjoy the romance is my advice.

Brad is the guy (fake) dating Blue’s ex in Borrowing Blue.He forges a friendship with Blue’s Aunt Tilly and Tristan’s lesbian grandmothers in this short. I only wish I had seen him more involved with the Marian family because of it. Of course, with those three ladies around, this was definitely a humorous story. When Tilly tries matchmaking and nearly gets Brad arrested, he meets Miles, a Vegas homicide detective. It’s a sweet short story with plenty of craziness added in from the older ladies.

Beck is in Jude’s band. I don’t really remember him in the story but he is letting loose in his own short story. He meets Quinn dancing at an exclusive club. This story takes place in one night and is sexy as hell. There is a big surprise at the end when they let the other know why they wanted each other and who they are. I am still a little a little dumbstruck.

Keller works with Tristan at the Vineyard and meets Eli when he strips down for Aunt Tilly and the grannies painting class at the Vineyard. Both are attracted to each other, but miscommunications, overheard denials of attraction seem to hold them back from insta-love. And one case of mistaken identity nearly kills their possible relationship for good. I liked this story. Again with the crazy octogenarians in the picture there is a good amount of silliness.

I think the author saved the best for last. I didn’t remember Josh, who worked in Alaska with Jamie Marian. His crush on Jamie went unrequited, but I don’t think Josh really wanted Jamie anyway. A love that ended eight years prior has haunted him forever. When Cyrus’s grandmother dies and the duty that took him away from Josh is over, he rushes to the man he cruelly ended things with. Unfortunately, Josh is dating someone named Hayworth. Even though I don’t really know the characters of Josh or Cyrus, and even though they haven’t seen each other in eight years, their love for each other was very palpable. I was overjoyed as soon as they crashed into each others arms. I am a total sucker for same couple second chance stories. Hayworth kindly stepped out of the way, too, if that makes it anymore obvious about how meant to be Cyrus and Josh are. And now, I do want a story about Hayworth because he really seemed kind, and looking for a love of his own.

Not to fear, the author indicated that there will be more shorts. I think this audiobook of shorts could be listened to without having read the novels in the series. However, I think it is more enjoyable if you are familiar with the family. I definitely recommend this book for any fan of sweet love stories. P.S. Michael Pauley’s narrations are really great. He is an autobuy narrator for me.

No more wondering!

When you get invested in a series, there are always supporting characters whose fate you wonder about. Thanks to Lucy, we don't have to any more! It was fun to revisit these guys and learn about their HEAs. As always, Michael Pauley was fantastic.

❤💓❤💓❤💓

I really enjoy it when an author thinks enough of their readers to give us more content on side characters. This is a time consuming process and it is usually not the direct intention of the author for one or more of their companion characters to develop a group of individual fans. Generally this honor is saved for the main characters in each book. But you can tell just how talented an author really is when many of their supporting characters develop such a fan base. Speaking only for myself I get so involved with my stories that I feel invested with all of their lives. Who and what made them into what they have become. So I would love to thank Mrs. Lennox for taking the time and allowing us her devoted fans a bigger look into these men. I have to be honest and say that while I have enjoyed each of these stories my heart has been stolen by Josh and Cryus. Their story deserves their own full book in my humble opinion. The love and dedication that each man has for the other is truly awe inspiring. I just wished someone would love me like that. So I hope you enjoy this book, and this series. It is well worth your time, attention and the money to buy them. So the following is my original review.
Loved loved this book. My favorite was Josh and Cryus story. It was so touching and heartwarming. You just have to read this book.
May you have a blessed and beautiful day while you fall in love with love.

Fun

Good roundup of secondary (tertiary?) characters for series fans or a good intro to the author for non fans. My favorite might be the first, with Brad & Miles. Some stories seemed a tad abrupt in the romance but hey, short stories. And they are fun.
