Michael Ross 22 short stories


Another 22 Stories – Michael Ross – Available NOW! ONLY £0.99 and on Kindle Unlimited!



As with the other books Another Twenty Two Short Stories is a varied group of tales. This book contains no erotica, sci-fi or fantasy fiction. However there are stories that should tickle the imagination and to ask: Why did that happen? What happened next? Can I trust the narrator?

A girl playing her banjo on the beach is interrupted by a stranger, a young girl in Moscow 1932 goes searching for bread, a couple make a nostalgic return to Vienna, a man struggled through an overgrown forest carrying a mysterious box, a millionaire staring out of his penthouse suite is badly shaken by what he witnesses, a young girl comes home to find all she had to eat is cols sausage and chips, an Edwardian doctor’s life is turned upside down by the arrival of the British Prime Minister.

Twenty two stories that are all very different, intending to stimulate the reader’s imagination and creativity.

It was a strange and twisting road that led to the publishing of my second novel.

Born and raised in Bristol, England. I spent my adult life in business, the majority of that time marketing cars. I eventually

owned the largest Saab specialist in the world, before a divorce put an end to that part of my life.

This led me to leave Bristol to live halfway up a mountain in the Welsh valleys, start a part time six year English Literature course at Bristol University, and attend creative writing classes in Cardiff.

My interest in English literature flourished and I have won several prizes for my short stories. My first book, ‘Twenty Short Stories – Settling a score,” reached No 6 in the Short Stories Best Sellers and is still available. My second novel, a romantic thriller entitled Hand Over Fist was released earlier this year

Chasing What’s Already Gone evolved from a short story Carpe Diem in my second anthology Twenty One Short Stories. I could not get the two main characters out of my head and I had to find out what happened to them after the end of the short story.

I now live very happily halfway up that mountain in the Welsh Valleys with my wonderful partner, Mari, and our rescue dog, Wolfie.

Afterburn/Aftershock Book Review

Afterburn & Aftershock (Jax & Gia #1-2)

Never mix business with pleasure. Never bring politics into the bedroom. In a way I did both when I took Jackson Rutledge as a lover. I can’t say I wasn’t warned.

Two years later, he was back. Walking into a deal I’d worked hard to close. Under the tutelage of Lei Yeung, one of the sharpest businesswomen in New York, I had picked up a thing or two since Jax walked away. I wasn’t the girl he once knew, but he hadn’t changed. Unlike the last time we’d drifted into each other’s lives, I knew exactly what I was dealing with… and how addictive his touch could be.

The inner circle of glamour, sex, and privilege was Jax’s playground–but this time, I knew the rules of the game. In the cutthroat business world, one adage rules all: keep your enemies close and your ex-lovers closer…

Another take on the Eva and Gideon, Crossfire series by Sylvia day, but in the lives of Jax and Gia…. Jax a wealthy strong and influential man in the political career and Gia a woman from a close family creating a popular family restaurant, while she wishes to expand others restaurant careers.

I was captivated by the first couple pages, this book is short if only Sylvia Day could make it into a series.
This book contains so much erotic content and a romance that was once broken….
The story of Gia and Jax is split into two, Afterburn and Aftershock, both short stories which get to the Juicy stuff whilst telling a hard and emotional love story between two different worlds of people.

Gia and Jax were a couple two years ago, Gia loved him and he walked out on her in Vegas, leaving her to believe he just used her, he was toxic… Struggling to get back on track she found herself a new job/career which kept her busy in all aspects of her life, only to find herself working with Jax two years later, the two collide.  The two face huge political issues which threaten their relationship and can Gia trust the man who walked out on her in the first place, who has too many secrets.
Will their relationship conquer all.

I was hooked from the beginning to the end and could not put the story down once I had started, this is definitely a must read, even the reviews are fantastic.  I gave this book a 5 star review on Goodreads.  Erotic, romantic and Captivating.
