My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Heart2Heart is a book full of short stories themed around first dates.
The book is written by Male/Male romance authors. It's for charity and
is a little fun for some special guys. I follow Alison Hendricks and I
discovered this book through her newsletter (She is one of the authors
of this book but her story isn't about her usual athletic sportsmen).
This is an adult read with lots of Male/Male sexy scenes.
Unlimited read, therefore you should read it if you have it as it's for
charity! Every page read is a little more for a good cause or you can
buy the book for £2.83 kindle.
The charities include The Trevor Project, Bisexual Resource centre and One-n-ten.

is a hot younger guy in his audience. A little harmless flirting

interested. Alberto is feeling pretty good about how things are turning
out with Mikey, but he doesn't want to let his date down so he arranges
to meet him at a later day. Can an app find him the perfect match or is
fate a better hand?
❤️The Professional Gamer and the Paranormal Photographer (Alison Hendricks)
read quite a few of Alison's books and I'm a huge fan. Her edition to
this book is a little different to her usual stories and I could tell
she had fun with it.
Lawerence is a professional gamer and most
of his time is spent online. His life is an open book and his fans love
the perks of knowing all about him. For Valentine's Day he sets up a
blind date using the Heart2Heart app and Allen is his match. These two
seem to have nothing in common but both have interesting lives. They
both take the time to walk in each other's footsteps and find more than
The twist at the end of this story really tickled me and finished off the story perfectly.
❤️The Assassin and the dog walker
male and some super sexy senses. This story had me laughing and loving
brooding Lymond. I'm a fan of strong alpha leads and the best part about
this story was the fact he got put in his place. Daniel knew how to
handle Lymond and it paid off, making them a good match. This story had
action, drama and some smoking hot scenes. I will definitely be checking
out the author, Charlie cochet other books.
❤️ The criminal and the Sommelier (Wine waiter with expert skills).
is accustomed to the finer things in life. He likes good wine and only
the best restaurants. He has been on the dating scene for a while but
hasn't found that special someone.
Angelo is a master of talents and he has seen rarities most only visit in museums.
Heart2Heart app has sent these two gentlemen a special treat. An
exclusive date at a high-end restaurant. The date its self is memorable
and Phillipe gets more than he bargained for.
This was an
interesting read and really captured my attention. It was more than a
romance and Angelo was an interesting character. The story was short
(obviously) so it left me wanting more and the romance was only just
starting to blossom.
❤️ The superhero and the NSA agent
and Damian's date doesn't go to plan. Shane's day job keeps him very
busy and his latest mission even ends with a hospital visit. His partner
has set him up for a Heart2Heart blind date for Valentine's, but
unfortunately, due to injury, he isn't going to make it. He messages his
date to reschedule, but luck would have it Damian is also at the
hospital and happy to meet. They get their date even if it's not the one
they expect. They hit it off right from the start and Damian easily
fits into Shane's busy life. Another perfect match. The superhero
element is also a nice touch.
There is some good banter in this story and some smiley moments. This is a fun story with a lighthearted sexy romance.
❤️ The uber driver and the phone sex operator
and Azrael's story is funny, quirky and very entertaining. Travis helps
his brother out by covering his shift. His brother, Brody works as an
Uber driver. One of Travis's fares is to take Azrael to his parent's
house. Az doesn't know Travis isn't Brody which changes a few key
Azrael has just left his job teaching dance at a studio
when he gets a call. Normally it's the type of call you would take in
private, but it's a demanding client and he doesn't think anyone else is
Azrael is trying to become independent from his
family and pay the bills himself. As part of his independence, he also
wants to find a guy. He uses the dating app and is all set, but when his
date turns up he's all flustered. The taxi conversation wasn't quite as
private as he thought.
These two start off on the wrong foot
but have amazing chemistry. Az needs to get over his embarrassment if he
wants to find romance.
I really enjoyed this story and would happily read more by Lucy Lennox. This story was very amusing and had a sweet ending.
❤️ The Baker and the seal

lives in a small place the love prospects are slim pickings. He uses the
Heart2Heart dating app to snag a date for Valentine's Day thinking it
will be a free meal at the very least.
Ash is fresh out of the

Cal's bakery thanking heaven he could save the day, but soon realise his
family needs more than one problem solved. His brother is getting
married and being unorganised is an understatement. Ash finds himself
rushed off his feet.
Ash is trying to get a normal life now he is
home for good and signs up to the dating app. When his date turns up
it's none other than his saviour baker, but he looks mad. Luckily it's
just a misunderstanding. These two make a cute couple and even though
everything is up in the air they find a way to make it work.

in a good way. Luckily he intends to lay low while the swelling goes
down. When his date turns up on Valentine's Day he can't believe it's
Theo. Luckily these two can laugh it off and get on with their date.
is the classic bend and snap first date story. Poppy Denison, the
author describes herself as two parts sass and one part sweet. I would
say that's how to describe this story. It's short but it's about good
friends and romance.
❤️ The lawyer and the lobsterman
isn't looking for love he just wants his sister to get off his case. He
sets up a date but 20 minutes into it and the guy hasn't even shown up!
When he does show up these two clash like chalk and cheese. They are
the complete opposite and this story was highly entertaining. Isaac and
Will are from different planets. The lawyer and the lobster. Ones all
work and no play and the others work is all about play. This was a
really good story. I just don't want to give anything away... You just
need to enjoy the ride when reading it.

Nate is going terrible and to finish it off he well and truly messes it
Nate was looking for love but what he got had to be some
kind of mistake. This was a dating disaster. As this story unravels we
find two guys with lonely hearts and they find each other. This one has a
little drama and a sweet happy ever after.
