Suspend rational thought. Leave logic at the door. Be ready to roll your eyes and pick your jaw up from your lap.The tales in A Likely Story don’t let truth get in the way of telling a good yarn. They might push your buttons or make you laugh. They may make you scoff or spit out your coffee.You might even scratch your head in disbelief. Whatever your reaction, the one thing they are guaranteed to do is entertain you!

Just like the blurb warned readers of, all sense of logic goes out the door after just one story in this anthology. A Likely Story may be the title but truly, it really should have been: unlikely. Thing is, it is the illogical and sometimes bizarre stories that made this one of the most entertaining read I have had in ages. Entertaining in the sense that one story made me laugh out loud and say: ridiculous; the next sent me to sobbing tears I was blubbering; the third sent me to wonder and say: wth?; one had me laughing out loud I startled even myself but I also wanted a copy of the DVD! and the rest, well the rest just got more bizarre and weird and strange but all in a good and magical way it left me actually wanting for more, especially when it involved one of my quirkiest need-to-read-genre: mpreg. Oh yes, I am smiling smiling smiling here... heheheee
I won't bother reviewing each and every story for it would take a whole page and more as I have a lot to say and may ramble. This anthology is quite the collection and checked a lot of boxes for me. Written by numerous authors, some in collaboration, most not; some I love and are familiar with while the rest were first time encounters, these were such great reads all. I agree, some were really strange but keeping in mind that that is exactly what the theme of this anthology is all about, I had absolutely no problem. What I did was just devour this book!
Another great anthology to add to my increasing collection. hmmmm and its mostly from WIP ... makes me think :D
