    Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends)

    Please, for the love of god, someone, stab me in the head if I attempt to spend money on a KA book again. This was SO not worth the money I paid... Vi and Joe -- 1 Star This was a complete waste of pages. I would have much rather read about Riker and his matchmaking kidnapping attempt. Hap and Luci -- 1 Star I hated Hap; he was a pussy. I also hate "bro code" stories. On top of that, it was beyond boring. Deacon and Cassidy -- 3 Stars. This one was cute, and the kidney and This Is Us argument made Please, for the love of god, someone, stab me in the head if I attempt to spend money on a KA book again.

This one was cute, and the kidney and This Is Us argument made me laugh my butt off (lol). Diesel, Maddox, and Molly -- 1 Star I didn't like this one at all. First, this story seemed WAY too complicated to be tackled in a short story. I couldn't stand Diesel. On top of that, it was also confusing, hard to follow, and boring as fuck. That said, the sex scenes were hot. Although, maybe if they had stopped having sex for five minutes they could have had a conversation thus ending the story and saving me from almost falling asleep. NO RATING The next story was about some fairy or some shit like that. I think KA was on an acid trip when she wrote this one. I can't even be bothered to give it a rating. Tod and Stevie -- Aww, maybe 2-Stars I mean it was sweet, for the whole two minutes it took for me to read it!

    3.25 stars! I am a huge KA fan, so when I saw we were getting a collection of shorts from her, I was thrilled! Overall, I liked this book. It could have been so much… more. The couples I was most excited about hardly got a snippet, and others got almost an entire story. No Clue- I will always want more of JoeCal. That is my boy. This was waaayyyyy too short, but I still enjoyed seeing Joe and Vi again. The Stars Aligned- It’s been so long since I read Heaven and Hell that it took me a minute to r 3.25 stars!

The Stars Aligned- It’s been so long since I read Heaven and Hell that it took me a minute to remember Hap and Luci and get into their story. Still, it was pretty good. 

 The Favor- This was one of my favorites. I loved Deacon and Cas and getting to see a little more of them down the line was awesome! 

More Than Everything- I haven’t read this series, so honestly I skipped over it after a few minutes of listening. 

 Tell Me What You Want- This was super short and cute, a bonus story. I liked it better than some of the others even though it was random. 

 Rock Chick Renewal: Mr and Mr- I was looking forward to this one so much! Once again, MUCH TOO SHORT! 

Even though Loose Ends wasn’t a huge win for me, I’m hoping KA does more of these. There are SO MANY characters she’s written that are near and dear to my heart and I would love to read more from!

    Astrid - The Bookish Sweet Tooth

    LOOSE ENDS is the first volume of a collection of short stories and novellas with which Kristen Ashley ties up, you guessed it, loose ends. Is this a must-read? Well. If you're a big fan, definitely. Let me give you a quick rundown what you receive when you get Loose Ends: NO CLUE - shorty from At Peace featuring Joe and Vi THE STARS ALIGNED - novella - Hap and Luci (from Heaven and Hell) THE FAVOR - shorty from Deacon featuring Deacon and Cassie MORE THAN EVERYTHING - Diesel, Maddox and Molly fr LOOSE ENDS is the first volume of a collection of short stories and novellas with which Kristen Ashley ties up, you guessed it, loose ends. Is this a must-read? Well. If you're a big fan, definitely. Let me give you a quick rundown what you receive when you get Loose Ends: NO CLUE - shorty from At Peace featuring Joe and Vi THE STARS ALIGNED - novella - Hap and Luci (from Heaven and Hell) THE FAVOR - shorty from Deacon featuring Deacon and Cassie MORE THAN EVERYTHING - Diesel, Maddox and Molly from The Greatest Risk TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT - Bonus story ROCK CHICK RENEWAL - MR. AND MR.- self-explanatory, featuring Tod, Stevie and their posse A word about whether you can read these short stories and novellas as standalones: I didn't read Heaven and Hell (although it's sitting prettily on my Kindle - TIME!) and The Greatest Risk and I had mostly no problem understanding what I was reading. I wouldn't say the same about the shorties because they are basically extended epilogues - which is why I didn't read No Clue - I wanted to read AT PEACE via audiobook but didn't like the narrator so I'll read it the old fashioned way. THE STARS ALIGNED - 4 Stars I know some readers will be disappointed that Hap and Luci don't get a full novel but you know that this is Kristen Ashley and her novellas are the length of other author's full length books so let me tell you this is definitely a satisfying story. Hap and Lucie were very sweet and while it took them some time to overcome obstacles and a little resistance from the outside I was happy with how this developed. I'm sure fans of Heaven and Hell who were waiting for Hap and Luci will be too! MORE THAN EVERYTHING - 4 STARS In More Than Everything we meet very unconventional lovers. Maddox and Diesel have been in a relationship for years and a couple of years ago Molly joined them. Along the way a rift opened between Maddox and Diesel which both of them don't know how to overcome. Both D and Mad are looking for solutions out of their funk but the problem is that it's not just a funk - it goes much much deeper. I'm sure that people who read The Greatest Risk will have a much deeper experience than me because they know details which I don't. Although I haven't read the Honey series I enjoyed this story immensely. It's full of raw emotions and angst. It's also full of rough and kinky sex which I could take or leave but it did show the kind of relationship all the characters had - full of trust and love. I really loved the dynamic between Diesel and Maddox and Molly was an adorable character who helped the story move along. The length of this story notwithstanding (which is still 200+ pages) this novella has a deep and clear message about tolerance and how in the face of bigotry love always wins. I was wondering along the way whether Diesel's sister would get her own story because she was a pretty damn awesome character. To find out, you'll have to wait until you make it to the epilogue. THE FAVOR contains some sweet and hot moments with Deacon and Cassie, a couple of years after DEACON ends. I love these little stories that let you catch up with your favorite characters and you definitely can with this shorty. TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT is a bonus story that is so sweet and adorable I smiled all the way through it. It's really only a couple of pages long but it's delightful with its matchmaking fairies. LOOSE ENDS is a lovely collection of stories that you definitely should have in your book collection. The bit-sized stories are short enough that you can squeeze them in between other books and will still leave you utterly satisfied. They are chock full with beautiful, heartfelt quotes, that are KA's signature and will touch you deep as always.

    Well....the only story I really loved was "MORE THAN EVERYTHING" and I haven't even read that series. It was extremely HOT though and an MMF story which I happen to love !! There was a lot of sex in this story....a lot !!! There is also an extra awesome bonus in this story in the form of "Rebel", who we will get to see more of in the future ;) I would give "More than Everything" 4,5 stars, but the rest... barely 3 stars. I am going with 3-3,5 overall....I was so disappointed with Joe and Vi's st Well....the only story I really loved was "MORE THAN EVERYTHING" and I haven't even read that series.

    Going on the less than stellar reviews I'm not paying to read half a sub-par book and no way am I touching that Honey series, because ..... 🤢 So, I'll pass thanks. KA and I have officially parted ways. 👋

The second half was definitely better IMO, but overall I was disappointed. I just thought it would go a lot different. But alas (Josie!!!) I am not the author and she obviously wrote the story she wanted to write. I am happy they are happily happy ;-) I'd give it 2 1/2 stars rounded up to 3. Oh! It was ni 2 1/2 "Disappointing" Stars.

(Josie's boss from THE WILL.) Tell Me What You Want and Mr. and Mr. I thought the fairy (short) story and Todd and Stevie's (short) story were both sweet and cute. I liked them, but like someone else said, they could have been put in a news letter. I'd give them both 3+ stars. No Clue and The Favor Joe and Vi"s story I thought was almost pointless. But again had it been in a news letter or maybe author's website freebie (maybe under a Slice of Life tab) I would have been happy to read it. I still may have thought it was pointless, but I wouldn't have been irritated at all. Pretty much the same goes for Deacon and Cass. Maybe 2 1/2 stars for both. More Than Everything I didn't read the Honey story. I read the first book in that series, but decided it wasn't for me. So I didn't read this novella. Overall, I think Loose Ends fell way short of my expectations. I think I'm giving it 2 stars. ... So, there are my thoughts. Happy reading!

    Not very exciting. The Vi and Cal story was really short and boring. I was never a fan of Deacon and Cassie but their story was also short and not very exciting. I skipped the MMF tale from the Honey Series as I don't read MM but that seems to be the longest story in the volume. I also skipped the Rock Chick short story. There is a cute fairy story but it's very short. Basically the only story I wanted to read in this book was the long awaited Hap and Luci story from Heaven and Hell. I enjoyed th Not very exciting.

KA said she didn't want to give Luci anymore angst seeing as she lost her husband but I would have liked a bit of angst but instead it was a sweet, romantic story that brought a tear to my eye. 3.5 stars for this story (would have been more but parts were similar to other KA books) but only 2 overall for this volume. I think KA could have chosen some better loose ends than these ones!

    I cannot believe I'm going to say this but... hmmmmm.... For once I regret buying a Kristen Ashley book. I did NOT see the point of this book. Before you judge me.. I am a HUGE HUGE fan of KA's books but this was such of waste of money. For a second there... actually, no...a lot of times, as I was reading the book it came to a point where I even questioned whether I was actually reading a KRISTEN ASHLEY BOOK. Loose Point was so disappointing If you can, skip this book. If you do use KU, and you mu I cannot believe I'm going to say this but... hmmmmm.... For once I regret buying a Kristen Ashley book.

    “He’s always on my mind. When I go to sleep. When I wake. He’s just always . . . there.” Fans of Kristen Ashley will delight in this very hot, very touching and very romantic collection of short stories! We have a short visit with one of my all-time FAVORITE KA couples, Joe and Vi from At Peace. I will never tire of reading about them and this sweet, romantic story will thrill fans of The Burg series. Another reason I love Kristen Ashley? Older couples still have all the passion and fire of her “He’s always on my mind. When I go to sleep. When I wake. He’s just always . . . there.” Fans of Kristen Ashley will delight in this very hot, very touching and very romantic collection of short stories! We have a short visit with one of my all-time FAVORITE KA couples, Joe and Vi from At Peace. I will never tire of reading about them and this sweet, romantic story will thrill fans of The Burg series. Another reason I love Kristen Ashley? Older couples still have all the passion and fire of her younger couples. Y A Y for older married couples!! The next novella is about Hap and Luce an honestly this could have been its own book. KA must have SO many stories rattling around in her vivid imagination and I am so glad she put this one on paper! This is a very poignant story that is pure KA. "You were a good boy who would grow into a good man, that coming from what was inside you that she knew was there and they nurtured.” SOBS!! I was so excited to re-visit Deacon and Cassidy in The Favor. Deacon is still one of my favorite Alphas and the Unfinished Heroes series is NOT to be missed!! Kristen Ashley sets the bar for Alpha males. This sweet story gave me all the feels. “You’re it, Deacon. You’re the reason I breathe/. You’re my husband. I was put on this earth for you. I can’t exist on this earth without you.” Get ready for some MAJOR heat because More Than Everything is NSFW and will take your breath away!! Please heed the author's note about this scorching novella because this might be one of the most graphic and erotic stories I've ever read. This is Diesel, Maddox and Molly's story from the Honey Series and it is a beautiful story about love, commitment and acceptance. Be aware that this is a m/m/f relationship so if that is not your jam, then you probably won't love this one. “You are our world. We can endure anything, as long as we do it as our three." Finally, there is a cute standalone story called Tell Me What You Want which I thoroughly enjoyed, as well as a sweet visit with Tod and Stevie in Rock Chick Renewal. SO. A lot to take in, no? Once again, Kristen Ashley delivers a very full contemporary romance reading experience, and I hope she plans to write more of these anthologies in the future!

    Spoiler Whore-Momoa

    NO CLUE Joe and Vi. They're older and still have got it going on. There is one moment that I LOL and when a name is mentioned, I fucking smiled HUGE. I seriously could read more of Joe and Vi and their family. I have a feeling we will be seeing more of them and hopefully soon. FOUR STARS THE STARS ALIGNED Hap and Luce. One of the longer novellas which I immensely enjoyed. After Hap finally gets his act together, he and Luce have one beautiful, sexy and well deserved HEA. FOUR STARS THE FAVOR NO CLUE Joe and Vi.

After Hap finally gets his act together, he and Luce have one beautiful, sexy and well deserved HEA. FOUR STARS THE FAVOR Deacon and Cassidy. Story continues to see their children and how they keep each other happy. Sexy, of course, though I still would love a scene where Cassidy is pegging Deacon. Gotta love a man who likes up the bootay! FOUR STARS MORE THAN EVERYTHING Diesel, Maddox and Molly. STOP THE MOTHERFUCKING PRESS CAUSE HOLY SHIT THIS NOVELLA WAS ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHIIIIIIIING!!!!!! If you've read The Honey Series then you know that this trio has it's complications(being Diesel making peace with not who he is(bi)but finally not giving a fuck who has a problem with him). The sex. THE SEX. There's a whole lotta fucking and it's one of the best m/m/f relationships that I've read. I will just state that I love a man who is not afraid of his own jizz. When all is said and done the epilogue ties it up beautifully AND we get to know some of Rebel who is Rush's(Chaos series)HEA.<---Not a spoiler cause if you follow all the things Kristen Ashley you should know by now. FIVE STARS TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT A complete stand alone with no previous characters from prior KA books. The ultimate sweetness! FOUR STARS ROCK CHICK RENEWAL Tod and Stevie. ALL THE FUCKING FEEEEELS. An absolute beautiful story that had me in tears. You'll see the Rock Chicks along with their Hot Bunch. This story packed a punch with all the colors there ever was.

    As a huge KA fan I have to say I was disappointed. I know it was only novellas & tying up loose ends/short stories - as the title states but I just didn't love it. Felt the stories needed to be a little more. Some were shorter than an average KA Epilogue. I'm probably going to get slapped by the KA Zealots but that's okay. I will still one click whatever she writes but this one just didn't do it for me.

    A first for Kristen Ashley, and hope for more to come in the future, this anthology is a wonderful treat for both long-time fans and new readers alike. Jam packed with so much goodness, Loose Ends was the perfect combination of short stories and longer length novellas that had me excited to revisit past loves as well as eager to experience the "happily-ever-afters" of some beloved secondary characters. No Clue ~ 5 stars Within the pages of one of the most epic and emotionally charged romances I'v A first for Kristen Ashley, and hope for more to come in the future, this anthology is a wonderful treat for both long-time fans and new readers alike. Jam packed with so much goodness, Loose Ends was the perfect combination of short stories and longer length novellas that had me excited to revisit past loves as well as eager to experience the "happily-ever-afters" of some beloved secondary characters. No Clue ~ 5 stars Within the pages of one of the most epic and emotionally charged romances I've ever read, At Peace, lives an extraordinary hero named Anthony Joseph Callihan. My love for Joe, as well as his woman Violet, is immeasurable. So I was thrilled beyond belief to savor more from their world. Older, but no less growly, sexy and swoon-worthy, we see a glimpse into Joe's everyday life and his ornery, chaotic brood. Not to mention the zany, off-the-wall Ryker popped in to make an unforgettable appearance, and his hilarity had me in stitches. No Clue was a sweet little story that had me falling in love with the Callihans all over again. The Stars Aligned ~ 5+ Stars. The Stars Aligned was the heart and soul of this anthology for me. Since first reading Heaven and Hell, and with every re-read following, my longing for Hap and Luci's story intensified. After years of hoping and obsessing, my wish has finally come true. It was A-Freaking-Mazing and definitely worth the wait. Years after tragically losing her husband, Travis, Luciana Gordon is ready to love again. So many obstacles lie in her way, but the biggest hurdle is the man she's falling for ~ George "Hap" Cunningham. Hap's not only her dear friend but also Travis' buddy. Luci has an incredible feat before her in convincing Hap to take a chance at a relationship. Ghosts from the past and pressure from others complicate their situation even further. All this had my emotions in a whirlwind. However, I did not doubt for one moment that Ashley would get me through this intense story, as she is the queen of second chance romances. In the end, their journey was profoundly beautiful. I loved Luci (pun intended) as her character oozed incredible strength. As I imagined, Hap was a tough nut to crack. His stubbornness in thwarting all of Luci's charms and denying his true feelings had me all edgy, but I understood his intentions. Hap loves Gordo, considers him a brother, and anything other than a friendship with his widow would be a betrayal. But Luci's determination and courage shines through as she guides them both beyond grief and mourning. And Hap...sigh...he was incredibly sexy, loving, and sweet. He proved to be the perfect hero totally devoted to Luci as he overcomes his struggles. I adored seeing Sam, Kia, and all of the H&H gang, especially the gruff and grumpy Skip. He truly stepped up as the voice of reason when it came to Hap and Luci's relationship by making one heck of a heartfelt speech that was amazingly touching. Also excited to see a cameo from a character in the Magdalene series which I hope will one day have his own story. All in all, The Stars Aligned was everything I ever wished for when came to this couple. The Favor ~ 4.5 Stars It's back to cabin 11 with the overly sexy Deacon and his woman, Cassie from the Unfinished Heroes series. I loved catching up with this couple, seeing the family they built and the tender love they share. More Than Everything ~ 3.5 Stars Maddox, Diesel, and Molly who debuted in The Greatest Risk (Book 3 of the Honey Series) are an unconventional trio. In all honesty, MMF romances are not my usual cup of tea, but these characters and their dynamic relationship had a way of easily earning my affections. Super kinky, all together or paired off, they were hot. However, there were times I did feel pushed out of my comfort zone. Regardless, I enjoyed this threesome as they dealt with all of their struggles. The love and support Mad, D and Mol shared were sincere, as each worked hard towards the happily ever after they most certainly deserved. A huge bonus with this novella was meeting Rebel ~ Diesel's sister and Rush's (Chaos) love interest. I LOVE IT when KA weaves in characters from different series! Tell Me What You Want ~ 4.5 stars A fantastical standalone so cute and sugary sweet that I truly enjoyed. I would love to see more of this couples' story. Rock Chick Renewal ~ 5 Stars What a wonderful short story! The dedication alone had me all sniffling and misty-eyed. Revisiting all the Rock Chicks and their Hot Bunch men was like coming home from a long journey. It had me seriously craving for a series re-read. This time, it's all about Tod and Stevie, and I relished spending time with them. A feel-good story that left me overjoyed and smiling. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this publication

    I'm doing these as I read them to make it easier on my forgetful brain..... No clue I did not and most likely will not read At Peace but I'm still very familiar with Cal and Vi and their family. This was just sort of an extended epilogue with a little view of Cal and Vi as parents and a visit with Ryker as he proposed a crazy scheme to help out a friend. it's pretty short but I loved it. 4* The Stars Aligned This is Hap and Luci's story who we met in Heaven and Hell. Though it's a novella it told th I'm doing these as I read them to make it easier on my forgetful brain.....

This was just sort of an extended epilogue with a little view of Cal and Vi as parents and a visit with Ryker as he proposed a crazy scheme to help out a friend. it's pretty short but I loved it. 4* The Stars Aligned This is Hap and Luci's story who we met in Heaven and Hell. Though it's a novella it told the story needed perfectly as we already had some of the background of this friend's to lovers story.Luci has recovered from the death of her husband and is ready to move on and she wants to do that with Hap. Hap threw every stumbling block he could find at this development from Gordo,to his criminal dad,his deadbeat mom and his past as a troubled youth. I found this frustrating and wanted to shake him many times but Luci,sweet Luci knew what she wanted and she held on. The beauty of KA is that even when that darn Alpha male frustrates you to no end he then turns around and delivers some moments that are definitely swoon worthy,Hap was no exception and when he pulled his head out of his ass it was a beautiful thing. I'm not a fan of dead exes in a story line because I wonder if the new h/H would be second best, although there is no doubt that Luci loved Gordo I never felt that Hap was second best,the heart in all it's beauty has the capacity to love more than once and that was shown here. Kia,Skip and Sam also pop in this one and we get a lovely epilogue with babies! So for Hap and Luci 3.5* The Favor This was like another extended epilogue with Deacon and Cassie,though there was no plugging 😂 it's just a check in with them as they decide on another baby. Deacon as a Daddy and Husband was a wonderful thing. The argument about the Kidney was a highlight for me. Though very short I enjoyed this peek into life after their hea. 4* More than Everything I did not read and more than likely will not read the Honey series as such I was unfamiliar with D,Maddox and Molly. While I generally have no problems with menage(only of they end in a triad) this one was just a little too......crude for me.I like my sexy times descriptive and raunchy but even for me cum running down a guy's leg from their activities was a bit much. As such I unfortunately, did not finish this one so no rating. Bonus short Just a sweet story of a matchmaking fairy with excellent ideas of what love is..... I'd actually like to read the story if the couple she set up,though we did get a few lines about their hea. Rock Chick Renewal Short,short of Stevie's proposal to Tod......5* just because Ren's name was mentioned 😂😂😂 Really it was pretty short but in true KA style it was a sweet thing for a couple we know and loved from the Rock Chick series All in all though I wasn't a fan of every story in this anthology I'm hopeful that KA does more like these, I loved visiting with established couples and getting new stories.

This book left me at loose ends pun intended ha-ha because unfortunately where Kristen Ashley books are concerned I am super greedy and always want more! This book is a wonderful series of visits to many characters we have come to know and love from her various works. Some characters which were not the focus in prior reads take on leading roles, and tie their own love stories in a beautiful bow. Other favorite treasures just show us more of their fabulous lives moving forward. This book also presents a perfect opportunity for a KA Virgin to take the plunge, after reading the wonderful teasing tidbits you will be making a visit to her backlist.  For those of you familiar with her many works, families etc. Get ready to visit with some favorites from The Burg, Heaven and Hell, Rock Chick badass land, The Honey Series and, The Unfinished Heroes.

That wonderment to me is priceless and something I can always rely on with a Kristen Ashley read. Now go read on get your KA fix or get ready to fall in love with a new to you author. See you soon around next release day (fingers crossed I continue to be blessed with the privilege), until then I will revisit so many characters I love from the KA world with some outstanding rereads. *ARC provided by author Reviewed by Guest Reviewer Pilar❤ ♡ Don't want to miss any of our posts?

I've read some of her stories three times over so it's awesome to see new stories and sides to her characters beyond the end of their full length books. I can't wait for more Loose Ends.

    Loose Ends by Kristen Ashley A collection of Short Stories and Novellas tying Up Some LOOSE ENDS If you’ve been following Ana’s Attic for any length of time you know of my pure adoration for anything Kristen Ashley, so I can’t tell you how excited I have been for Loose Ends ! I need to start by saying I can’t stand anthologies for the most part. I have to know how much is left in the stories I am reading and in an anthology, you don’t really know that, but this is Kristen Ashley, and anything Loose Ends by Kristen Ashley A collection of Short Stories and Novellas tying Up Some LOOSE ENDS If you’ve been following Ana’s Attic for any length of time you know of my pure adoration for anything Kristen Ashley, so I can’t tell you how excited I have been for Loose Ends ! I need to start by saying I can’t stand anthologies for the most part. I have to know how much is left in the stories I am reading and in an anthology, you don’t really know that, but this is Kristen Ashley, and anything she writes, I will read, and I sure hope she does more of these! There were 6 stories. and two of them could have easily stood as their own books if it were any other author. This is a long book (I think, you can’t tell!), and I admit, it did drive me a little crazy to not know the length of each story as I read it. But it never detracted from the stories for me. NO CLUE (Short Story) A sweet visit with Joe and Vi from At Peace one of my favorite all-time book couples! They have a house full of kids and a visit from crazy Ryker. This one was funny, sweet and sexy, and I wish there was more, but it was an adorable little drop-in epilogue. “It was also about a lot of laughter, quiet golden moments, silken moments of utter pride, and a shit ton of sex. In other words, he was living the life. He kinda knew he’d get that the minute he laid eyes on her. He fought it, but he still knew. Thank God he quit fighting. “ 4.5 Stars THE STARS ALIGNED (Novella) This is the one I waited for! Hap and Luci’s story from Heaven and Hell. I reread Heaven and Hell a few weeks ago so it was fresh in my mind, but this can probably stand alone. Luci, an ex-supermodel, had a once-in-a-lifetime kind of love with her husband Travis. But he died, and his best friends Sam and Hap looked after Luci. In the time since, Luci and Hap developed feelings for each other. “He would always come second best to a dead man.” When we last left Luci, she was in a bad place, made even worse by being in love with a man who can’t love her back because of a bro code. But Hap did love her, he just doubted he was good enough for the sophisticated yet down-to-earth supermodel. I loved Luci in Heaven and Hell, and I loved her even more in this novella. “There aren’t rooms that people fill or pieces you give away. If you love someone with all of your heart, you just do. But you can love many with all your heart. Like I love my father. And Sam. And Kia. And my friend Massimo. And Celeste.” She slid her hand up his chest to the bottom of his throat and pressed lightly. “Like I love Travis. And like I love you.” Told in mostly 3rd POV (as are all the stories in this anthology), I would have loved to have seen Luci’s POV but it was the same POV as Heaven and Hell, where the only first-person part was Kia’s. “You’re my religion.” Luci closed her eyes. Yes. She’d been right. She’d just been worshiped. I loved Pearl, the Jewish grandma, and really loved the visit with Henry Gagnon from The Will. He was in love with Josephine but never made the move until was too late. I so hope his story is in the next Loose Ends. I love you, Happy.” “Not as much as I love you.” “I have a feeling I love you more.” Hap looked deep into her eyes and stated, “Luciana, that would be impossible.” 4 Stars THE FAVOR (Short Story) This was a cute and sweet epilogue-type of visit with Deacon and Cassidy and their family. There were some giggle-worthy moments and I loved the sweet slice-of-life visit. 4.5 Stars MORE THAN EVERYTHING (Novella) We met the threesome of Diesel, Maddox and Molly in The Greatest Risk. They are a m-m-f threesome but Diesel is having a hard time coming out to the world as bi and It’s causing all kinds of angst in the relationship. “Took a lot of ass, took a lot of cock, it’s still only you and it’ll only ever be you.” This was a beautiful story about overcoming prejudice but be warned: there is a LOT of sex, most of it of the kinky and rough m-m variety. I loved all three guys and Maddox’s family. Diesel’s sister was awesome, and we will be getting her story soon, you’ll just have to read this to figure out what I mean. “There will always be people in our lives who don’t get us, what we have, and they never will. If you told me this was what I’d have, what I’d want, what I’d work to keep strong and good and happy, what I’d cherish, just three years ago, I would have told you you were crazy. What a mess, two men, one woman. How do you raise kids with that? How do you balance it out so there’s no jealousy? Where one doesn’t feel left out? How do you make love split into three and make it equal? And then we happened and we’re a miracle. We’re so beautiful, we’re a miracle. We’re everything. We have so much to give to each other, it spills over, so our children are going to be so lucky. Just like us. So . . . fucking . . . lucky.” I’m not a huge m-m fan so I did think there was a little too much sex in this story (as hot as it was) but I expect that’s how it would be with two horny guys and a horny girl. I think because I don’t read a lot of m-m and this was 3rd person, I tended to feel like I wasn’t sure who’s head we were in at times whereas you recognize a woman’s vs. a man’s thoughts easier in a traditional story (this has also been my issue with other m-m books which is why I don't read them much). I still love the characters and the storyline so much, and fans of her Honey series, m-m romances and menage will really love this. 3.5-4 stars TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT (Very Short Story) This was the shortest story in the book based on a writing prompt, and it wasn’t related to any other story Kristen Ashley has written. I so hope she expands this world into an entire series because I completely fell in love with the tiny, sparkly matchmaking fairies. 5 stars ROCK CHICK RENEWAL Get your tissues out, because if you are even a little sappy, you’ll be crying at the sweetness while throwing colorful confetti! I completely fell in love with this little Rock Chick visit. I wish it was longer! “They stopped him at the side and Tod gazed up at his partner, his lover, his best friend, his everything-and-had-been-since-time-began-because-they’d-been-destined-for-each-other-since-the-earth-started-rotating-around-the-sun.” 5 Stars The Down & Dirty: I absolutely love this idea! While I am not an anthology lover because I like to know how much is left in each story, it’s my most-loved author and some of my favorite characters. The books I normally love most from Kristen Ashley are first-person and all the stories in this anthology are third-person, so I will say, I had a little trouble connecting as much as I usually do, but even 3rd person from KA is better than almost anything else. I still enjoyed every single word of this anthology and wouldn't have missed it for the world. If you are a Kristen Ashley lover, Loose Ends is a MUST READ. If you are new to her, don’t start here.

    KA is tying some looose ends with couple of short stories and two novellas. No Clue- Vi & Joe.... Loved it...I love Joe. Would be interested in reading more about Ryker and his matchmaking ways. Also Angie and Jack in my mind have epic love little less misunderstanding and murders then the parents though. **** stars The Stars Aligned short sequel for Heaven and Hell You probably wouldn't like this one if you haven't read that book and loved it. I did both of those things and still struggled KA is tying some looose ends with couple of short stories and two novellas. No Clue- Vi & Joe.... Loved it...I love Joe.

I did both of those things and still struggled because my issue with short novellas when I want the whole shabang is still strong and maybe if this happened long time a go I would love it more. I'm sensing Henry from the Will who is here secondary character will get his own well deserved HEA. ***stars The Favor Deacon & Cassie Loved it. I love Unfinished hero series. I guess you can say I have a thing for underdog and bit darker hero. Redemption it is huge deal in this books. If you haven't check it out. Sylvie is still along side Ally the badass of them all. I didn't mind sweetness in this one. Not one bit. ***** stars More Than Everything I haven't read Greatest risk and I 'm thinking you don't have to, to read this one. For a couple or I should say triangle or no more like for this poly relationship damn what is the right term, okay for Diesel, Maddox and Molly and the "issues " they are having they sure have a lot of sex A LOT and very little talking. Bottom line: I didn't connected with these characters nor do I care about them. ** stars Tell me what you want Except making me sing Spice girls song I didn't understand this one. It was very short I already forgot about it. ** stars Rock Chick Renewal Short story in Rock chick world, set around Tod and Stevie's wedding. This was waaaaay to short. I blinked and it was over. Me sad. **** stars For the fans of the KA and the fans of characters that are in it. Otherwise stay away. I always want more. So more please. More Liam..... Something new about Sterling and or Navarro( you guessed it I'm huge Lady Luck fan) More Liam.... What's up with Callum and Sonia. Jet's sister I always forget her name. Liam Lee Nightingale What's with No & Adriana's book?! ...... Pretty please with sugar on top.... Yes I am.... So what....

    As a huge Kristen Ashley fan, Loose Ends is my idea of heaven. Not only do we get follow up stories with some favorite couples, but we get brand new short stories too! And each story and novella included in the anthology is just as sweet, just as heartwarming, and just as swoon-worthy as the one before. Kristen Ashley writes epic epilogues that can evoke just as much emotions as entire books so it’s not surprising that her novellas and short stories are equally impactful. ~*~*~*~*~ About No Clue Wh As a huge Kristen Ashley fan, Loose Ends is my idea of heaven. Not only do we get follow up stories with some favorite couples, but we get brand new short stories too! And each story and novella included in the anthology is just as sweet, just as heartwarming, and just as swoon-worthy as the one before. Kristen Ashley writes epic epilogues that can evoke just as much emotions as entire books so it’s not surprising that her novellas and short stories are equally impactful. ~*~*~*~*~ About No Clue Who doesn’t sign and swoon when thinking of Joe Callahan? I was positively giddy at the prospect of getting an update from one of my all-time favorite KA heroes and No Clue is a short and sweet glimpse into Joe and Vi’s daily life. With a special appearance from a kid-friendly, though still scarily intimidation Ryker, who provides a bit of comic relief and made me wish that he’d get his own book following his harebrained, yet well-intentioned schemes. Seeing Joe and Vi blissfully happy and tackling each challenge they face with grace and love warmed my heart and put a smile on my face. About The Stars Aligned The Stars Aligned is one of the reasons I was dying to get my hands on Loose Ends. After reading Heaven and Hell, I hoped there would be a follow-up story featuring Hap and Luci, so getting a novella dedicated to these characters is especially exciting. In Heaven and Hell, it was obvious something was brewing between Hap and Luci and, in The Stars Aligned, their budding attraction is confronted head-on. While the stubborn, former soldier is warring with his feelings for Luci and his loyalty to his deceased brother-in-arms, the fiery, passionate Italian widow is willing to fight for who and what she wants. Despite its shorter length, this novella is such an intense, profound, well-rounded story, packing so much feeling and emotion within its pages. It’s wistful, romantic, heartbreakingly beautiful, and full of love and longing. It’ll tug on your heartstrings, put a blush on your cheeks, and leave you feeling grateful for the time spent with this couple. About The Favor As my favorite of all of the anti-heroes, I was particularly excited to get up an update on Deacon. Knowing what he endured to get his happy ending makes it all the more meaningful to get a glimpse of Deacon and Cassidy’s slice of paradise. With his two little girls and a wife he loves more than anything in the world, Deacon is perfectly content. This short story follows an adorable interaction between Deacon and his daughters, then a scorching hot romantic encounter with his wife. The Favor is brief but satisfying and I loved every second of it. About More Than Everything After meeting Diesel, Maddox, and Molly in The Greatest Risk, I knew we’d be seeing more of these characters at some point. The fact that Kristen Ashley had yet to tackle a ménage romance had me curious to see how a more unconventional relationship would unfold. So what do you need to know about More Than Everything? It’s S.T.E.A.M.Y. With a capital everything. Which, if you’ve read the Honey Series, is pretty much par for the course. While Maddox and Diesel are planning for their future with Molly, Diesel’s fears about what his close-minded family would think about who he loves and how he chooses to live his life is impacting them from moving forward. Recognizing Diesel’s inner turmoil, Molly and Maddox set out to prove he’s worthy of their love. With twice the uber Alpha male hotness, and a number of jaw-droppingly steamy love scenes, More Than Everything is a relentlessly erotic, angst-filled novella about love and acceptance. The ending is picture perfect, with an appearance from a certain Chaos character that’ll have fans excited for the author’s next MC romance. About Tell Me What You Want A short story about a matchmaking fairy who brings two unsuspecting attendees together at a Spice Girls concert? Yes, please! Tell Me What You Want was a completely unexpected, completely wonderful tale featuring a heart-meltingly sweet meet cute at the unlikeliest of places. This story could’ve been four-hundred pages and I would’ve happily devoured every sentence. Here’s hoping that this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Maurelle, the matchmaking fairy. About Rock Chick Renewal I’ll bet you there’s not one person who read the Rock Chick Series who didn’t fall head over heels in love with Tod. Indie’s fierce and fabulous neighbor who brought drama and flair to the estrogen-filled Rock Chick group is one of Kristen Ashley’s most memorable characters so, naturally, I was thrilled for him to finally get his own story. The man who revels in planning the weddings of his closest gal pals gets a perfectly lovely surprise that’ll have you oohing and aahing, and sniffling a time or two. Rock Chick Renewal is a nostalgic, delightfully fun story with whole appearances from several familiar faces. Mostly, it made me want to re-read the entire Rock Chick for the umpteenth time. ~*~*~*~*~ Seeing these stories grouped together as part of the Loose Ends anthology only emphasizes Kristen Ashley’s ability to seamlessly adopt the unique tone of each character with her distinctive writing style. Each featured short story is a feel-good, abbreviated visit with beloved characters, while the novellas are in-depth explorations of characters we’ve only briefly gotten to know in previous books. Kristen Ashley mentioned the possibility of writing more short stories and novellas in the future and I fervently hope this will be the case. *complimentary copy provided by the author for an honest review

    2.5 stars. I didn't have high expectations for this book. So luckily I did not mind too much that I didn't really enjoy it. A few of the stories were ok and a few were not good to me at all. There are 5 stories in this anthology. Here are my thoughts: No Clue: Joe and Violet's story. This was very much one quick, slice of life scene. It was not bad but there wasn't much to it. 3 stars. The Stars Aligned: Hap and Luci's story. This book is a spin-off from Heaven and Hell, which is one of my least f 2.5 stars. I didn't have high expectations for this book.

This book is a spin-off from Heaven and Hell, which is one of my least favorite KA books. I didn't love Luci's character in that book either and that continued into this book. Luci is yet another of KA's new heroines. Rich, formal speaking, hard to identify with or for me to like. I didn't mind Hap, but didn't love him either. I didn't feel any chemistry between them. Still, the story was interesting and entertaining enough. I would give this story 3.25 stars. The Favor: Deacon and Cassie's story. This was my favorite from the bunch. I love this couple. This was a good, quick story. 3.75 stars. More Than Everything: Molly, Diesel and Maddox's MMF story. I actually thought I might skip the menage story because I didn't like the book I read from the Honey series. But my curiosity got the better of me because I really enjoy reading menage. This trio had the weirdest dynamic I have ever read. I don't know if the relationship dynamic is more odd to me because I did not read the last two books in Honey, so I don't know their full back story. The story is very focused on Maddox and Diesel's relationship issues. Molly is pretty much an afterthought. The guys call each other bro, brother, buddy, etc. None of those come off as romantic terms of endearment. The sex scenes are not sexy at all and frankly grossed me out a lot. The language and the coarseness ("the meat", "jack me", etc.) were huge turn offs. There was so much discussion about "fuck sessions" and descriptions of running come. All this trio did was talk about having sex, have sex, and eat. They did not do any normal relationship things. It did not feel like the trio were in one relationship with each other, more like three separate but not equal relationships. Honestly, this novella was terrible for me. It was like KA had never read a menage book before she wrote one. Then she decided to cram a novel length story into a novella. There was so much derision and angst between this group for a novella. I just did not enjoy it at all. 2 stars. Tell Me What You Want: A short PNR story with new characters. This was a cute little story about a cupid-like fairy. I had just read a full-length book about another female cupid so this story just felt like a paler version of that. It was not fresh, but it was not bad. Maybe it is a sign of a new series to come. 3 stars. Rock Chick Renewal: Todd and Stevie's story. I didn't really get the point of this story because Todd and Stevie had already had a commitment ceremony. So why the big proposal? This was not a bad story, but I didn't really see the point. 3 stars. Honestly, I felt like most of this book was just filler. I think KA wanted to write the menage novella as part of the Honey series and used this book as a vehicle to do it. The book felt like it was kind of a waste of time and money. I am not sure if I will read another of her Loose Ends anthologies if she writes more in the future, which is a shame because there are several characters from previous books I would like to read stories about. I just am not sure I can trust KA to write them stories that do them justice.

    This is the first thing from KA that doesnt do it for me. The shorts were ok but more for the newsletter than a Book. The novella of hap and Lucy was too predictable and i didnt feel the KA connection with them. The honey novella i liked best.

    A collection of short stories. It's best to read this after reading KA's previous work as these are follow on stories or about secondary characters. Hap and Luci was the only one I was really interested in, it was good, characters introduced from the book Heaven and Hell.

    This wasn't really what I expected to be honest. I thought this would be a compilation of short stories. Some about characters which already got a full length novel and others about characters that we were always hoping to read more about. I was looking forward to the chapters about Joe and Vi since they are my favorite characters from The Burg series. But these were so very short and absolutely nothing special. I was disappointed. I've never the less enjoyed Hap and Luce's story. KA managed to This wasn't really what I expected to be honest. I thought this would be a compilation of short stories.

I didn't bother with the story about the Honey series characters since I'm not interested in reading this genre. The other "stories" were actually very short scenes which you would never understand or enjoy if you haven't read the books prior to this compilation. My overall rating is therefore 3 stars but The Stars Align was worth 4.

    So I enjoyed the stories I read. I skipped the Honey one as I never read that series...Was happy we finally got Hap and Luci's story so that was epic....For me the one that I kinda loved the most was the Fairy story....I was like not wanting it to end....Hopefully that is the introduction to a new series as I think it will be awesome.... One thing I can say is KA was not meant for short stories.....it doesn't work...I prefer her books long and meaty.....the short story thing not so much.....I w So I enjoyed the stories I read.

    This is really 2 novellas, one of Hap/Luci and the other from the Honey series. I really enjoyed the Hap/Luci story, that’s deff 3 Stars for me. The honey series I haven’t read, so no comment from me there. Overall I was just a little disappointed because the other “2 stories” are way, way short. And I can make a long list of side characters I’d love to read a Hap/Luci length story about, catching up with Vi/Joe, eh, not on the list.🤷♀ This is really 2 novellas, one of Hap/Luci and the other from the Honey series.
