Official Review! Mixtape: A Love Song Anthology (Moment of Truth by Veronica Larsen)


What’s more romantic than a love song? A mixtape full of them.

Twelve bestselling and award-winning authors have curated an anthology of brand-new, standalone stories inspired by love songs, featuring a foreword written by NYT bestselling author Laurelin Paige. Press PLAY on this limited-edition collection that’s guaranteed to make you swoon.


GUYS MY AGE – Saffron A. Kent
He’s older — much older, experienced and freaking gorgeous. Oh, and mine. He just doesn’t know it yet.

SAY IT FIRST – Nikki Sloane
I spend my days speeding around the track and my nights thinking about her—my new best friend and movie star Anna Douglas. Who’s going to win the race to admit we want to be more than just friends?

A kinky, wartime love affair once swept Marine Jacey Benjamin off her feet—until the hero she longed for chose power over love. Now her hero is back and ready to have Jacey kneeling before her once again, if only Jacey will say yes…

SAY YES – Elle Kennedy
I’m in town for a wedding. We both swiped right and blew each other’s minds last night. But this morning? He looks a hell of a lot like the groom.

ALL I WANT – Mara White
Marilyn loves her husband, but she may love the idea of being a mother more. Will one night of passion with a beautiful stranger give her what she wants, or more than she bargained for?

Starting over is Mal’s idea of hell and the last thing on his mind is freaking office décor. But this painting? It haunts him. So does the handsome and intriguing artist who may have inadvertently opened a window into Mal’s soul.

WILD PITCH – Rebecca Shea
I’m snowed in with the one person from my past who broke my heart. Someone forbidden…my first love…my brother’s best friend.

Some say no woman should come between brothers. Blood trumps all. Family first. Those people have not met Maverick DeSoto.

THINK I’M IN LOVE – Leslie McAdam
What’s worse than being in love with your best friend? Watching him propose to his girlfriend.

MOMENT OF TRUTH – Veronica Larsen
Telling her I love her might just ruin our friendship, but watching her marry someone else? Means losing her forever.

LUSH – Marni Mann
There aren’t any secrets from me at my exclusive sex club, Lush. Not until the only man to ever tame me—the one who vanished in the middle of the night—turns up at the door.

KISS ME – Lynda Aicher
A strong drink to mellow her frustrations is all Tara McTavish wants. Seeing the man who’d fired her the day before is not in her plans. But then, neither is going home with him.

(Review of Moment of Truth by Veronica Larsen)

I could not wait to read Moment of Truth for several reasons. The first being that I have fallen madly in love with Veronica Larsen’s writing. She makes her characters so beautifully flawed and their stories so heartfelt that you start to feel as if there a friend and not a fictional character. I was also excited to read the story when I found out that she used one of my favorite song “Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arther as inspiration, since it is part of a mixtape anthology. Then add in that Dean and Gabby are friends on a journey that leads to the heart and between the sheets and I was ready and willing to get to know this angsty couple.

Dean has developed feelings for his childhood best friend and he plans on confessing to her on Valentine’s Day. That is until….well, I can’t tell you now can I? From the moment Dean spotted Gabby at the bar with all his feelings and desires overflowing for the girl he grew up with, I just knew that he was a hero that I wanted to keep in my clutches and couldn’t wait to see their love story play out.

Gabby was a heroine that I wanted to hug and comfort in sympathy one minute and shake some sense into her in the next. With all the yumminess that Dean has to offer, how could any woman possibly resist? Veronica made us privy to all Gabby’s indecision and ambiguous feelings to the point where I felt it was me riddled with the conflict instead of her.

What more could you ask of a writer than to have you sitting with your heart opened wide, biting your nails, waiting breathlessly for the love that is on the line to dazzle you with it’s brilliance. Veronica Larsen delivers a short story that is big on emotions, passion, and a friendship that becomes so much more. I highly recommend “Moment Of Truth” from the Mixtape Anthology for a romance that will steal your heart and warm you in all the right places.
