Stuck Landing, by Lauren Gallagher
Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Release Date: December 14, 2015
Series: Bluewater Bay (Standalone)
My Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars
“Gallagher(-slash-Witt) is a genius when it comes to writing
page-turning romances with ridiculously hot bedroom scenes.”
For months, acclaimed Wolf’s Landing director/producer Anna Maxwell has been nursing a crush on Natalya Izmaylova, a former Russian gymnast and current Wolf’s Landing stunt coordinator. When Anna witnesses Natalya’s very public breakup with her boyfriend, she can’t resist inviting her over for drinks to commiserate about love and all that nonsense. Commiseration doesn’t last long, and soon Anna’s in bed with the hottest woman she’s ever touched, living out fantasies she didn’t even know she had.
Despite the amazing sex, Anna wants to proceed with caution. They’re both newly single. They’re colleagues. And there’s the not-so-small matter of Anna’s biphobia.
Natalya won’t commit to someone who clings to ridiculous stereotypes, but they can’t avoid each other at work, and there’s no ignoring their chemistry. Anna’s defenses are slowly eroding, and Natalya is willing to give her another chance. But Natalya only has so much patience, and even scorching-hot sex won’t keep her coming back forever. If Anna doesn’t come to her senses soon and let go of her prejudices—not to mention her insecurities—she’s going to lose the woman of her dreams.
Hey I Know That Guy!
One of the best parts about writing a series is bringing other characters back, even for cameos. And with numerous authors involved, it means lots of crossovers.
This is one of my favorite parts of working on Bluewater Bay, and Stuck Landing is full of characters you’ve seen before and a few hints about people you will be seeing.
Anna’s bodyguard, Jeremy, is back along with Scott (and Jeremy’s crush on Ari). Finn Larson, everyone’s favorite butthead producer is back to butt heads with Anna. Hunter Easton and Kevin Hussein? Check. With Natalya being in charge of the stunt department, you know you’re going to catch a glimpse or two of Ginsberg.
And as anyone who read Starstruck or Rain Shadow knows, you can’t have a story about Anna without her longtime friend Levi. And you can’t have Levi without Carter or their fluffy pair of Maine Coon fluffiness, Link and Zelda.
So you’ll see no shortage of familiar faces in the pages of Stuck Landing.
And if you watch very closely, you might even see a couple of them tie the knot…

About Lauren Gallagher:
Lauren Gallagher is an abnormal romance writer who has recently been exiled from the glittering utopia of Omaha, Nebraska, to an undisclosed location in South America. Along with her husband, a harem of concubines, and a phosphorescent porcupine, she remains, as always, in hiding from the Polynesian Mafia. For the moment, she seems to have eluded her nemesis, M/M romance author L.A. Witt, but figures L.A. will eventually become bored with the wilds of Spain and come looking for her. And when that time comes, Lauren will be ready. Assuming L.A. doesn’t have her hands full keeping track of Lori A. Witt and Ann Gallagher, which she probably will.
