Apple Bites: A Romance AnthologyApple Bites: A Romance Anthology by Julie Lynn Hayes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An Officer and a Gentleman (and an Apple)

This story pulled at my heartstrings.
Professor Holden Young misses his partner, Captain Jeremy Matson, who is overseas in Afghanistan. He tries to bury himself in his work but it can’t take the place of his lover.
A hollowed out apple and a surprise visitor leads to a hot ending that will mean you may need a cold shower.
My favorite bit was how the hollowed out apple was used. But, to find out what I mean you’ll have to read it for yourself.

Have a Break, Have a…

Ah, seeing as this one is mine I’ll leave that to someone else to tell me what they think.
All comments, and suggestions, are always welcomed.


John and Bryce made me laugh. Their stereotypical male egos mean each want to outdo the other. Taunts and a good bit of alcohol lead to a dangerous challenge. Who will win??
My favorite part had to be the ending. I’ll leave you to discover what it is and why it’s my favorite bit for yourself.

Apple for the Teacher

Rage makes me think of a typical rebel. He has an ‘I don’t care’ attitude. It seems to me that the more people push him to conform to their version of ‘normal’, the more he pushes back and goes the opposite way.
Guessing who he’s going to give his apple to is fun.
I have a lot of favorite’s bits and I can’t list them without spoiling it for you, so sorry but you’ll have to read it and find your own best bits.
I will say one thing. When you’ve finished reading this short story, go back to the beginning and read it again. The second time you read it will be even funnier than the first. I’ll leave you to see why.

Perry’s Cherry

I did like the way Perry is thrown into the room sharing with Nick. Trying to hide his staring—and not doing it very well—and trying to cope with having a sexy older roommate.
My favorite bit, though, is when Perry tells an interloper to get his
hands off Nick, (he’s not as polite as me *wink*)

Good Teacher, pet

Whew, you’ll definitely need a cold shower when you read this.
My favorite bit was waiting for Anais to think of the answer to her Dom’s question, it was funny. And his use for the answer was erotic and hot.


I’ll be the first to hold up my hands and say I don’t usually read any story that includes cheating in any form.
But this was a fun short. I loved how jumpy Kate was at every little thing. And I also liked how Ty told her the kids were looking out for her and her lover, by distracting the teachers. The principal provided a fun twist and a great way to get Randy’s attention.

Hot for Teacher

Hmmm, all I could Kink—I mean think—about was how I was always nervous in university giving presentations in front of my teacher and group. Now my fiancé at the time had done what Lucy’s did? Well….
My favorite bit had to be when she surprised him and started to turn the tables a bit.
This is another story where a really cold shower is needed after reading.


This is a great read, with wonderful stories, from talented authors. I hope you read and enjoy it as much as I have.
