(Synopsis) ROUGH RHYTHM: A Made In Jersey Novella by Tessa Bailey Band manager James Brandon never expected to find the satisfaction he’d been chasing, let alone stumble upon it in some sleezy Hollywood meat market. Yet the girl’s quiet pride spoke to him from across the bar. But after losing the grip on his dark desires that one fateful night, James has spent the last four years atoning for letting her down. Rock band drummer Lita Regina has had enough of James’s guilt. She wants the explosive man she met that night in Hollywood. And she’ll stop at nothing to revive him.

DEVOTED: A Masters and Mercenaries Novella by Lexi Blake
Amy Slaten has devoted her life to Slaten Industries. After ousting her corrupt father and taking over the CEO role, she thought she could relax and enjoy taking her company to the next level. But an old business rivalry rears its ugly head. When Flynn Adler realizes the woman he’s falling for is none other than the CEO of the firm he needs to take down, he has to make a choice. Does he take care of the woman he’s falling in love with or the business he’s worked a lifetime to build?

Z: A Demonica Novella by Larissa Ione
Zhubaal has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her. But as time passes, he’s losing hope… As an emim, Vex has always felt like a second-class citizen. But if she manages to secure a deal with the Grim Reaper she will have earned her place in the world. The only obstacle in the way of her plan is a sexy hardass called Z. Soon it becomes clear that they have a powerful connection rooted in the past…

FALLING UNDER YOU: A Fixed Trilogy Novella by Laurelin Paige
Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty, put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She’s certainly a woman who won’t be topped. Not in business anyway. But she’s pretty sure she’d like to be topped in the bedroom. Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Then the most unlikely candidate steps up. Boyd, her much-too-young and oh-so-hot assistant surprises her one night with bold suggestions and an authoritative demeanor he’s never shown her in the office.

CRAVING HIS COMMAND: A Doms of Genesis Novella by Jenna Jacob
Mercy O’Connor—known as SymonĂ© at Club Genesis—craves the chance to experience true surrender. The only problem is, she’s set her sights on sexy, commanding Sir Justice, who studies her with his dissecting, arousing stare…but never offers to show her his ropes. If Kellan Graham let himself believe in love at first sight, SymonĂ© would own his heart. After having his life ripped apart, he’s spent years inventing ways to resist simple lust, but each time this beautiful submissive turns her pleading eyes to him, she ignites a complicated conflagration of desire Kellan can’t fight.

AMERICAN QUEEN by Sierra Simone
It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

I must confess - I had already read four out of the six stories contained in this bundle before I received my ARC to review. I'm already a huge Tessa Bailey, Lexi Blake, Laurelin Paige and Sierra Simone fan, so their stories were already read and loved by me - some quite awhile ago. 

The best way to approach these bundles is to select one that includes at least one story by an author you already know and love. But, don't just read that one story! The whole point of the discovery bundles is to discover new-to-you authors (see what they did there?). I found that, for the most part, you don't need to have read the stories that came before these to appreciate them for what they are - sexy, romantic escapes of all sorts that give you all the feels. 

This bundle is particularly sexy, and it comes at you in all forms. American Queen features a stunning triad. Craving His Command involves a sex club. Falling Under You has a man who is very dominant at night while working in a more submissive role during the day. Z is for you PNR lovers. Devoted has action and suspense along with tons of sexy chemistry. And Rough Rhythm introduces us to a couple who likes their sexy times with an edge of danger. There is literally something for everyone here. 

As a result of this Discovery Bundle, I'm already looking into more books by Jenna Jacob. I had never heard of her before now, and I liked what I saw in Craving His Command. I'm ready for the next Discovery Bundle so that I can keep discovering new-to-me authors to love.
