Publisher's Summary

For a limited time, grab this collection of three stand-alone, raunchy, slow-burn romantic comedies featuring quirky, nerdy heroines and panty-melting heroes, along with their assortment of lovable, mischievous pets, and buckle in for a laugh-out-loud, feel-good ride.

Hard Code

My new assignment at work: test out toys. Yup, that kind. But when the testing goes south, and I mean that literally, I’m forced to recruit the help of my new boss, the infamously reclusive and devastatingly sexy Vlad Chortsky, a.k.a. the Impaler. Testing toys with your scorching hot boss is still professional...right?

Hard Ware

Two dogs, both alike in adorableness, in New York City, where we lay our scene.... Okay, maybe that’s a tad dramatic, but who knew a puppy meet-cute could go so horribly wrong? One moment, we're strolling through Central Park, and the next, a mysterious, mouthwateringly hot stranger is demanding I get my Chihuahua tested for STDs. Since he turns out to be the key to getting my newest business venture funded, I guess I’ll do it. It has nothing to do with wanting to see him again. And again. And maybe one more time....

Hard Byte

In the cerulean, fantasy-inducing eyes of my new Russian boss, Alex Chortsky (a.k.a. the Devil), “project integration” means turning my life’s work into a high-tech "toy." Uh-huh, that kind. When committing corporate sabotage to save my project doesn’t go as planned, my job is on the line, and the only way out is to make a deal with the Devil himself. One fake date in exchange for his help on my project - what could possibly go wrong?

Feisty and Naughty.

1. Hard Code

This was my favorite out of the three. I needed a lighthearted romance and this one fit the bill. So funny yet so embarrassing, this book had me in stitches, the eyebrow part was extremely hilarious. The vampire jokes were pretty funny too. This story has some smexy times, I look forward to more from this series. I really liked the end when we had the point of view from Vlad. Narrators were both good. I would have like to have more of both the story from Vlad’s point of view and more of Sebastian York’s reading in the book.

2. Hard Ware

The dogs are funny, I crack up when Boner talks in a French accent. I thought Drago’s obsession with doggie diseases was a bit over the top. The turtleneck turn on is a bit weird, but who am I to judge. Narrators were both good. Again, I would have like to have more of both the story from Drago’s point of view and more of Sebastian York’s reading in the book.

3. Hard Byte

Another fun romance. Wish the toys were real, wink, wink. I didn’t quite get the connection in this book as the first two book gave me. Worth the read if you need a lighthearted but slightly naughty romance to pass the time. I would read more from this series if the author continues maybe with Dragomir’s siblings. Narrators are both great.

Hilarious!

I guarantee you’ll laugh so hard with this series. I had fun getting to know these characters and all the crazy antics they get up to. I highly recommend it. The narrators for the audiobook versions were fantastic. They really brought these books to life!

Hilarious and Binge Worthy

This hilarious romantic boxset will be a pleasure to hear! I loved reading these stories but on audio they are even better! You get 3 books in one boxset. Three different RomComs all featuring the Chortsky siblings as they find their perfect nerdy match in these funny, sweet, and smexy romcoms.

Ava Erickson did a wonderful job narrating the bulk of this boxset. She was fabulous as Fanny, Bella & Holly, bringing all her funny, odd quirks to life. Her slightly accented Russian voice was perfect for Vlad & Alex. She did a phenomenal job with this story and portraying all the characters beautifully. It was a lovely surprise to have Sebastian York, Teddy Hamilton & Aiden Snow narrate the epilogues from the Male POV.

Get ready to laugh out loud, and fall in love with Vlad & Fanny, Alex & Holly, and Bella & Drago. If you love slow burn, opposites attracts, witty banter and feel good romance, this is the boxset for you.

3 romantic comedies that will make you LOL!

Ava Erickson’s narration was perfect for all three heroines - Fanny, Bella, and Holly. She really captures each of the ladies’ quirky personalities and performed the comedic scenes hilariously. I laugh out loud for most of the book.

The male POV’s were only in the epilogues but all 3 male narrators did a superb job in their short performances.

I highly recommend as this was an enjoyable 20 hrs+ listen and with one credit you get 3 books!

Steamy and Hilarious!! I IHGHLY recommend it!

This boxed set includes the three full novels in the Hard Stuff series. I like Misha Bell writing! The characters are amazing, and the stories are steamy and hilarious. Ava Erickson did an excellent job with the narration. The epilogues are narrated by three excellent narrators: Sebastian York (#1), Teddy Hamilton (#2), and Aiden Snow (#3). If you like Steamy Romantic Comedy, this series is definitely for you! I HIGHLY recommend it!

Hard Code: This story is hilarious!! I loved Fanny and Vlad's romance. Fanny is sassy, and funny. Vlad is a handsome and sexy Russian Boss. This Romantic Comedy has it all: great characters, strong and sizzling chemistry, fun storyline, and the perfect happy ending! There is a lot going on in this story!

Hard Ware: OMG! Bella and Dragomir's slow burn romance is HILARIOUS, and steamy!! Bella, the creator of the Belka sex toy company, is feisty, smart, and extroverted. Dragomir is handsome, enigmatic, and intriguing. They are opposites attract, and they are so perfect together. Even their dogs, Boner and Winnie, are opposites attract. They are a great addition to the story! I liked the story, the pace, the crazy families, the superstitions, the Russian traditions, and the twists. The supporting characters are great, and intriguing.

Hard Byte: Holly and Alex's slow burn romance is hilarious, entertaining, and steamy!! They are so perfectly perfect together!

Fun, quirky, unique!

Audiobook: Narrators - Ava Erickson, Sebastian York, Teddy Hamilton, Aiden Snow

Such a great narration by Ms. Erickson! She did an amazing job of bringing all the fun, quirkiness of these heroines to life. I couldn’t ask for a better performance for this super cute collection of stories. Of course, with this star studded line up of narrators, there was no way it couldn’t be sheer perfection and it very much was perfect in every way.

These were such fun, smexy audios with so much humor I found my cheeks sore from smiling so hard. All of these characters were developed to be unique, quirky and/or geeky. They’re not your typical hero or heroine. Each of the books were engaging and had a storyline that kept me listening when I would normally turn it off. With secondary characters I loved and some addition of pets that added to my overall enjoyment, I found every book in this bundle to be a perfect feel good listen!

Five Stars!

This was hilarious and steamy, techy and romantic. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to follow along with the plot, and each story had its quirks. As a fan of Dima Zales (one of the two who write under the name of Misha Bell), I totally loved this collection and will be looking into more of their books!

Hysterical Collection of amazing romances!

Looking for a romantic, hysterical escape? Look no further. You have found it here with Misha Bell's Hard Stuff Collection. These office romances introduce us a group of ambitious, quirky characters that will have you in stitches.

Harde Code: Fanny's new project is testing toys. Not your typical toys, but erotic toys. With an app. Remotely. And this project is extremely important to her boss, the Russian "Impaler", Vlad. He has a special interest in the results, and he finds himself immersed in the project from the first bug! Now getting to know each other, both testing and guinea pig playdates, we have funny circumstances, incredible sensual scenes and a group of characters that will have you laughing.

Hard Ware: Bella is quite the woman. Smart, beautiful and ambitious, she is looking for her next investor for an idea she has. Little did she think her dog would find him! Dragomir is hiding from his past. Not looking for a relationship, the connection between his dog and Bella's has him spending time with the beautiful Bella. With wealth like his, he could be the next potential investor. But when he finds out what she does for a living, will he still be interested?

Hard Byte: We meet Holly, an obsessive, quirky woman designing virtual reality animals for children. When her company is taken over by the "Russian Devil", Alex, she finds the direction of the company moving opposite what she is interested in. VR for adults, not something she wants to venture into, but secretly samples. She is super organized, loves all things prime numbers and can't understand her attraction to her new, scruffy boss. When he asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend for the night, things take a turn. Will Alex be the one who loves all of her idiosyncrasies?

Ava Erickson has such great comedic timing, and she was a perfect fit for this narration. Between her array of voices, and incredible accents, she made the listen fly by! Epilogues by Sebastian York, Aiden Snow and Teddy Hamilton are just a treat! This is a fantastic story and performance.

eeemmm......

the first story is okay. rushed and created unessessary drama which got solved the very next paragraph. the drama should have been more organic as should the solution. And finding out a Toy was designed after the the sisters vagina spoilt the whole series because she gave her it to her brothers to try and they got off on it. that legit spoilt the entire series, that was disturbing. The performances however were good all round
