Review
The Naughty List by The Naughty Literati authors offers a little something for everyone.  Personally I loved all the stories.  I will try to pick out a couple of favorites for this review, but I am telling you now they are all amazing!  So I really suggest you read them all regardless. There is passion, whimsy, imagination and just plain old amazing writing in this book.  I love shorts like these because I read them before bed, and I can finish a story before I got to sleep.  Anthologies like this can bring to you authors you might not have heard about before.  It is a great way to meet a new to you author. I highly recommend anthologies for that reason alone.
This anthology has a little of something for everyone.  I am huge shifter fan so I was really looking forward to reading NO GENTLEMAN  by Francesca Hawley
Librarian Abby Kelly comes west finding a roguish shapeshifter who desires her. Will Goldwolf is no gentleman, but Abby discovers he’s just what she wants.
I was not disappointed at all.  Ms. Hawley is already one of my favorite authors to read, she brings great story telling and hotter than sin characters together.  In this short she manages to bring all of that and more to the story.   This one has a western historical setting. Abigail has been through a lot. She is a true survivor. I liked that about her. She is strong.  Stands on her own two feet. The only thing lacking in her life is love and family. She desperately wants both.
William Goldwolf he is a mysterious and mischievous man.  He makes Abigail want to hit him more than once. But once they get to know each other and find the real people underneath the veneer they both find what they have been searching for.
This is a beautiful love story, and I want more!  Please let there be a full story one day. I want to visit these two again.
Christmas Bad Girl by Trinity Blacio, Ms. Blacio is another author I adore and love I could not wait to read her addition to this anthology. Hood and Trisha were definitely worth reading. I laughed so hard at some of Hood’s antics.  The hot steamy sex between him and Trisha was worth reading too. When you want some holiday fun with a twist this is the story to read for sure.
Over all The Naughty List is a diverse group of authors with great imaginations and memorable stories. I would pick this one up when you want to have stories you will never forget.
