The Romance Collection by Nikki Sex and Zachary J. Kitchen

romance

Three Contemporary Romance Novels by Bestselling author Nikki Sex, and Zachary J. Kitchen!

Karma

Sometimes love has nothing to do with luck, and everything to do with karma…

Marcy Paget worked full-time putting her husband through University. When he finally became a success, he dumped her for a trophy wife more than ten years younger, leaving Marcy to raise their four year old daughter on her own.

Even though Marcy knows she is better off alone than with a cheating husband who doesn’t love her, she is still struggling to make ends meet.

When an ethical dilemma presents itself she makes a choice – never realizing the incredible karmic chain of events that will follow her decision. . .

Promises to Keep

As the only ER doctor this side of Fallujah, Iraq, Jack Curren is a very busy man.

When he’s unable to save the life of his wounded medic, the soldier’s dying request is for Jack to personally deliver his wedding ring to Laura, his newlywed bride.

He vows to do so the moment he returns home.

Jack’s been through Hell on earth, while Laura’s a feisty, stubborn survivor of her own personal Hell. She’s got a mind of her own, and she’s no victim—but what is she so afraid of?

Despite their growing attraction, there’s just one thing the young widow doesn’t know about her husband’s death:

Jack Curren is the one who got him killed.

What Wendy Wants

After thirteen years of marriage and three children, Wendy Hayward is bored with sex.

As much as she loves her husband, Wendy married “Mr. Vanilla.” Now she reads nothing but steamy romance stories on her Kindle and fantasizes about with fictional characters, complete strangers, and tattooed rock stars.

One fateful day however, her husband grabs the wrong Kindle on the way to work, and discovers some of Wendy’s more “interesting” fantasies.

Unbeknownst to Wendy, Frank is very keen to fulfill every one of her secret desires. . .

review

“The Romance Collection” by Nikki Sex and Zachary Kitchen are 3 similar books, but not created equally. Book one is “Karma” and by far the longest book of the three. Karma began the overall theme of all three stories of the importance of communication in a relationship. Marcy has been burned in relationships before and has developed a lack of trust in men and relationships. She happens upon a “karma” situation one night at work and her choices from this situation lead her to a life she would have never thought possible. I enjoyed this story and felt that it did a great job of showcasing the bad habit women have of getting caught up in their own heads on what is beautiful and what they should be feeling. The women in this story show great bravery and courage to be honest in order to help strengthen their relationships. I felt that the story had a perfect combination between kink and love affair. It also showed great examples of “karma” and six degrees of separation. Finally, it showed an awesome budding relationship and how important a step parent is to a child. My only negative of this story was at times it had disjointed conversation between characters, most primarily during the Thanksgiving scene.

Next in line was “Promises to Keep”. Jack is a war torn military doctor, who in a very loose way is responsible for the death of Laura’s fiancé. Through the process of writing letters to apologize Jack and Laura develop a relationship that comes to fruition upon his return from Iraq and subsequently saving her from a deadly ex-boyfriend. Sadly I did not enjoy this story as much as the first and actually felt that it drew away from the collection as a whole. I felt that the characters were very disjointed between their letters and once they meet in person. I felt that the Laura in letters was very incongruent to the Laura in person. In letters she comes across as very strong and somewhat demure, but in person she was somewhat Bi-Polar. I especially didn’t like their major fight scene and found it very unrealistic. In my opinion she got way over angry for the situation and where they were in their relationship, especially right after Jack telling her she wasn’t bad for never loving her first fiancé. I found it unrealistic that she could say some really horrible things and then it’s magically over and their back together again in the epilogue just because they went through a tragic event together. I also didn’t like the ending, I found it inappropriate but won’t go into further reasons here to give things away.

Finally, by far my favorite and sadly the shortest of the three, “What Wendy Wants”. I read A LOT of books and a lot of those are romances with some kink thrown in, but I’m going to put it out there that this may be one of my favorites for a truly romantic story and ideally what every woman wants from her husband. Frank and Wendy have fallen into the rut that almost all long time married people fall into of her wanting more and his having no idea something is missing. That is until Frank accidentally takes Laura’s kindle and reads her spicy stories and really learns what she has been wanting. I loved that Frank went all in to his desire to make his marriage better and that the author showcased his nerdy ways even in his “researching” what his wife wanted and how to make their sex lives better. I thought that it made Frank incredibly sweet and endearing. I especially liked how he never lost his core personality of being somewhat nerdy and continued to think with his accountant brain, remembering percentages, even when caught up in the throws of lovemaking. Again this story by far made this book and gave the perfect combination of being a VERY sexy, but romantic read.

Overall, I give this entire collection a 4 hearts. Book 1 was good and a sweet story independently would have given it a 4.5 heart. Book 2, again I felt was lacking the depth and development of the other two stories so would have given it a 3 independently. But Book 3, pulls it home for me with being the best and would have independently rated it 5+ hearts.
