    1. I have really struggled with how to review this book because it so such a large collection of different stories. If you love YA, this book definitely has something for you here. I loved meeting all the characters! And I'm sure that it accomplished its purpose, lol, because now I want to read EVERY book that this anthology is based upon. Thanks Ladies!!! There are really sweet stories all throughout this book. There is no way that I can go into details about every single one so, I am just going t [...]

    2. Since Anthologies are short stories, I really can’t do an in-depth review on each one without ruining the whole plot. So, in honor of “short” stories, I am going to summarize my initial reaction to each story from In His Eyes in 5 words!Surprise Surprise by Stacey Wallace Benefiel:What a great Valentines date!First Kiss or First Kill by C.K. Bryant:Medicine Mix-up had me laughing.Shattered by Ali Cross:She better love him back.Before by Jessie Harrell:Who would turn down Eros?The Qualm Bef [...]

    3. Reading this anthology was fun! It was like speed dating - spending a few minutes with each story and deciding if you like the storyline, characters, the author's writing style and so forth, then deciding if you'd like to pursue it further. Wait. I've never done the speed dating thing, maybe there's some unpleasantness associated with that. Since it was completely enjoyable, let me find a better analogy. Okay, I've got one! It was like going to Baskin Robbins and trying 16 of their 31 flavors. Y [...]

    5. This is a tough review to write. I wish I could tell you about each and every story in this book because they’re great…each one introduces the reader to a new setting, a new group of people and a new adventure.But I can’t…so I’ll tell you about the overall feelings I got from this book:I was surprised by how different each story was. Yes, there’s a theme of love that runs through them but the approach to the theme is unique within each tale.I was captivated by the characters…spies, [...]

    7. I love a good anthology. It's a nice break from novel-length stories and often it gives us a glimpse into stories we may not have read in the past. That was exactly what this book was. It was a wonderful book full of cute love stories and perfect for a Valentine's day read. One of the things i really loved about this anthology is that we get a little explanation of who we will meet before each story. These are often connected to other stories already available by the author. Links are listed as [...]

    8. ANTHOLOGY IN HIS EYESMIND GAMES BY SUSAN KAYE QUINNI found this story to be a rare treat. Raf is perfectly drool worthy, but shows kindness and loyalty to his friend, the girl of his dreams. Yep, a complete package this Raf is a keeper:) This is a tantalizing tidbit that makes the reader want more!GETTING CLOSER by Lisa NowakI found this story was a great example to YA, that there is more to it all than whose hot and whose not:) That friendship, caring compassion are great attributes to celebrat [...]

    9. In His Eyes is a quick, easy and lovely read from the first short story to the last. The stories really warms your heart. It’s full of sweet moments of first loves and kisses and even moments of discovering love for the first time. 

I enjoyed every single story within the book. Each story was in the point of view of the male perspective which really surprised me. I always struggle to connect with male perspectives, but not this time around. Each male character had a unique voice some may [...]

    12.

    13. I'm not really sure how to go about this review since this anthology is chock full of so many stories by so many authors, so I guess I'm just going to go for an overall view. I liked this in the sense that I got to try out a lot of different authors--some of whose books I have been thinking of trying out--without committing to an entire book. Which worked out splendidly, since I found out I don't like some that I had been thinking of getting, while others I either discovered or confirmed my inte [...]

    14. The In His Eyes Anthology is a nice compilation of a variety of short stories, and excerpts from the author's various novels, but told through his eyes. I like being punnyWhile I enjoyed most of these, I think I really would've like it more had it featured a more balanced ratio between the small quantity of short stories and the large amount of excerpts. Not knowing who these characters were or having any background made me feel isolated for quite a few of the stories in here. There were a fair [...]

    15. Being an anthology I'll just do a generalized review because each story various in length & genre. Whether your Into paranormal, spies, mind reading or Greek mythology there's something for everyone, all stories are YA so if you love YA you will love these. Some stories I liked other I didn't but I really enjoyed having the males point of views (which is basically the whole point of the stories) which some books lack, so having one purely from a males point of view was great & now I have [...]

    16. In the Beginning - Katie Kleinread - 5/28/2012This story was the whole reason I was interested in the book. I wanted to see how Seth saw Genesis. But I was sort of annoyed because I thought Carter was represented a little differently in this. I know it was from Seth's point of view, but I thought Carter came off less caring in this. But in the series Carter was very much in love with Genesis, in fact I hate to say it but I sort of liked Carter better than Seth. Once again, I found myself wonderi [...]

    17. This book has a very cool concept. All the stories are written from the point of view of the males, which makes for a neat idea, e being female and all. That being said, the excerpts and such tended to get a little tedious for me after a while. I found myself putting the book down more and more, having lost interest. There were a few stories which I would like to read more about, and will be looking for those series in the future. But, and I don't know if the remainder of the stories were just t [...]

    18. The In His Eyes anthology is filled with some beautifully written stories. I loved reading about these characters from the male perspective - which is a rare find, it seems - and enjoyed the fresh take on YA storytelling in each. Every addition in this anthology is superbly written, and some of these shorts were so enticing I was compelled to go out and buy the respective author's novel without a moment's notice. In His Eyes has a bit of everything as far as genres go, and every readable, romant [...]

    19. It was fantastic getting a glimpse inside so many different fictional YA worlds - especially from the guy's perspective! I don't know what it is about reading a story from the boy's POV. Perhaps it's the fact that not many of the books I read are written that way, but I really enjoyed seeing the guy's side of the story!

    20. Interesting Collection!I have not had the opportunity to read many of the stories that were referenced in this collection, although the pieces did give me a preview of a lot of stories that I might have missed out on had I not read this book, I acquired at least a half dozen new books for my "Want To Read" shelf.

    21. This was just a fun and very interesting idea. A little taste of a ton of books, some of them I'd heard of. Others I had no idea the book or the author were out there. These were excerpts of books, pre stories such a fun mix of everything. I wish there were more of these compilations out there to try out books or series.

    22. Some stories I loved, some not so much. I figured a neutral three star was the way to go. This sucked for me because I really hate starting a book and not finishing it and this anthology forced me to do just that about 8 times. It wasn't bad, some stories were great, but some stories were not catchy or just not my thing.

    23. The stories ended up being pretty interesting, but by the time I understood the exact story it was already the end, which bummed me out. I wished I could have read each individual story instead of just parts.

    24. i enjoyed reading this. i purchased it because i just finished exiled by rashelle workman and saw she wrote a short in it. i liked most of them, a few of them not so much. the ones i did enjoyed, i'm going to buy from the authors that i would have not known about.

    25. Very good anthology. Only two of the stories were from books I've read and I really liked them.Most of the rest made me buy the books so I could read the main story. Two of them were already on my to read list. I definitely say this was worth the read.
