Romance Book Review: Anthology: Something Wicked This Way Comes, Volume 2
Genre: Erotic Romance, Paranormal, Vampire, Shifter, BDSM, and more

Anthology featuring various erotic romance short stories. Different genres are featured throughout the book with the underlying them being erotic romance.

As much as the story is so stereotypical version of New York Italian it was a heartwarming story that shined above the rest.
