    One thought on “Ask Me Why”

    1. My Thoughts on each novella:Midnight Bet by Jodi Thomas:This was a double romance, one for each Matheson cousin, Rick and Lizzie. Rick’s an attorney with a lot of enemies and Trace is a U.S. Marshall who has guarded him in the past. Since they parted ways, Trace hasn’t answered any of his emails or calls, but Rick can’t get her off his mind. Trace can’t hide her feelings when a Rick’s life may be in danger again.Lizzie’s is the oddball of the Matheson clan. She’s never fit it and s [...]

    2. How happy was I to receive this lovely, summery anthology featuring a few of my favorite authors! I've decided to do little mini-reviews on each story since there are four of them.Midnight Bet by Jodi Thomas 4 StarsHarmony seriesThis novella tackled the love interests of two cousins who get shot at and both are convinced that they are the target. Rick Mattheson is a small town lawyer who helps put criminals away and makes enemies. He fell in love with a US Marshall who left him behind. This is h [...]

    3. Autry's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4.5 StarsMidnight BetJodi Thomas threw in a plot twist I never would have imagined, the Matheson family is back in the spotlight and leading danger is following Lizzie around wherever she goes. Rick Matheson has called in his former security agent after being shot at, unfortunately the bullet wasn’t meant for him, but for his cousin. Dr. McCall is use to stitching up four-legged animals however when Lizzie shows up on his doorstep with a bu [...]

    4. only read the harmony short story. it was like the rest of the series - nothing overly original, but heartwarming nonetheless.

    5. An lovely and easy anthology. Four stories of people who have known each other for ages (in one way or another) finally finding love and romance and their people. It was sweet and just a tiny bit steamy (2.5ish on a 5 scale). While they didn't all blow me away they were all very nice reads and for the three authors I'd not read before I do plan on picking up others of theirs so overall pretty pleased with the antho. 3.5 overall stars. Midnight Bet by Jodi Thomas-- 3.5 starsOh not bad! This was m [...]

    6. Review: Ask Me Why Anthology by Jodi Thomas, Marie Force, Shirley Jump, Virginia Kantra wp/p3d0RZ-2GlPublication Date: July 7, 2015Genre: Contemporary RomanceRated: 4 StarsREVIEW:Four feel-good romances perfect for summer reading.MIDNIGHT BET by Jodi Thomas was full of mystery and danger but the dry humor offset it perfectly. Rick and Trace had a nice romance going but Lizzie and Doc stole the show for me. A nice addition to the Harmony Series.YOU’LL BE MINE by Marie Force is a steamy romance [...]

    7. I picked up this book for a couple of different reasons. First of all, I adore Jodi Thomas' "Harmony" series and there is a novella here that is set in Harmony, Texas, and it brings two of the secondary characters of the series to the forefront with their stories of finding love in unexpected places. Second, I love novellas! You can pick up "Ask Me Why" and find an enticing story that is fast and fun to read. Perfect for those busy summer days when you just need a moment for yourself to get your [...]

    8. My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin: witandsin/2015/07“Midnight Bet” (Harmony, Book 8.5) by Jodi ThomasWhen Cousins Rick and Lizzie Matheson are shot at on the way home from a family party, it’s only the beginning of the action. With two love stories, a series of attempted murders, and characters with some heavy issues, there’s a lot to unpack in “Midnight Bet.” Unfortunately, this is a story that would have been far better served as a novel. As a novella, each character only get [...]

    9. Midnight Bet – 4 StarsThis was my first read by the author and I had no clue that there are several books in front of this novella. It took me a while to get into the story because I have no time vested in the series. I didn’t feel a connection to the characters and I didn’t really get into the book until about halfway through. When things did finally “click” for me, I was fascinated by the uniqueness that is Lizzie and her love interest. I loved the fragility of her character and her [...]

Still, the biggest danger is losing their h [...]

    11. I won this compilation of four novellas in a giveaway. The first novella, 'Midnight Bet', by Jodi Thomas was definitely the best of the four. The story is fast-paced. Only 75 pages in length, it has a couple of interesting story lines. Jodi develops the characters quickly so that the reader gets a sense of who they are and the things they struggle with.'You'll be Mine' by Marie Force was a nice story, but that's about it. I never did figure out what the point of the novella was. There was nothi [...]

    12. 5 stars for Jodi Thomase harmony series is wonderful. The characters seem real and otherworldly at the same time. I can't explain it in words but it is like glancing thru a frosty window at a strange world to read this series. They always make me cry yet even the non HEAs please me. A consistent thread thru them is no one sees the "real" me. Many of Thomas's characters are lucky enough to find someone that does.No rating for Marie ForceI so want to like her books but I find myself skimming thru [...]

    13. If you're a fan of any of the series represented in this anthology you'll want to read it ASAP. I'm a big fan of Jodi Thomas and have to say her story was my favorite of this collection. I'd love to read more about all of the characters involved in Midnight Bet! I love the way Jodi develops characters in just a few pages (or even sentences). Lizzie, Brandon, Rick and Trace were so easy to cheer on as they tried to be content with the lot fate had dealt them only to get a glimpse of how life coul [...]

    14. I picked this anthology up to read Marie Force's Green Mountain novella "You'll be Mine." After I read that, I looked at the blurbs for the other 3 stories, and the only one that interested me was Shirley Jump's "Wrapped around your Finger." I did not read the other two stories. Both novellas were enjoyable, light romances.

    15. Not for meI should have known better. While I love Jodi Thomas, I do not like Marie Force. If all you want is a sexcapade book with little to no substance then her books are for you. I think all her characters need an intervention or should at least join sexaholics anonymous.

    16. Loved all the stories. Found new author to me, Marie Force and others I've enjoyed before, Virginia Kantra, Jodi Thomas. Yeah!

    17. Four brand new novellas to fall in love with from some of your favorite authors.Midnight Bet by Jodi Thomas (Harmony Book 8.5) - For Rick & Lizzie Matheson, coming back to Harmony, Texas is a step neither anticipated making. But when they end up in a shooting incident, well things just go from bad to worse. Can these two find a way to risk their hearts to the one person who they find they can not be without?As much as I enjoy Ms. Thomas’s Harmony, Texas series, there was just too much goin [...]

    18. Glad to see Rick and Trace the their HEA. wish we would have met Lizzy or the vet earlier in other books.

    19. Only checked out for the Marie Force novella. Figured out I had already read it. Cute story about the wedding and the set up for Patrick and Mary's HEA.

    20. I read this for the Virginia Kantra novella, which is the best one in my opinion. This may be because I'm only familiar with her writing and love the series. However, I don't think so. I honestly think her story was the best. "You'll Be Mine" by Maria Force (2.5 stars)This not so much its own story as a long extended epilogue to a book I didn't read. I'm sure this will be a happy place for fans of that book to visit. But for a reader getting a first introduction to Force's writing and the series [...]

    21. I really enjoyed the short stories in this book.Midnight Bet was a good story about Rick finally being with the woman he loves (the Marshall, Trace) and Lizzie finding the right man (the Veterinarian, Brandon) who loves her the way she is (quirky). Lizzie got shot the vet removed the bullet and Rick and Trace went to find Lizzie after realizing she was shot. But when they reached her house she wasn't their. Brandon took care of Lizzie after she was shot and realized he liked having her near. Tra [...]

    22. Ask Me Why is an anthology consisting of four novellas from four great authors. Marie Force, Jodi Thomas, Shirley Jump and Virginia Kantra have teamed together to create this.

    23. Ask Me Why, by Jodi Thomas, Marie Force, Shirley Jump and Virginia KantraGrade: C Ask Me Why is a collection of four novellas all packed into one book. I originally wanted to read this book for You'll Be Mine by Marie Force since I love the Green Mountain series and wanted to see Cam and Will's wedding (especially Fred's cameo). I loved this novella and for any fan of the series this is a must read. It had everything I wanted and it set up some exciting new couples for future stories as well as [...]

    24. Really Enjoyed All Four of the NovellasI preordered this book, because I always preorder every book by Marie Force, but I got so much more. Of course, I VERY much enjoyed You'll Be Mine by Marie Force. I have been waiting so long for Will's and Cameron's wedding, and it was wonderful, especially the visit by Fred, the moose. I also loved when Will and his brothers sneaked down from the mountain. I love everything that Marie writes.I also found that I really enjoyed the other three novellas too. [...]
