#wotr #attendingauthor #standalone Mister Manhattan (Cocky Hero Club) by Alexandria Sure

My Thursday afternoon meeting was a no show. Imagine my surprise when a drenched, flustered brunette slipped into the booth across from me, acting like she was supposed to be there.

When she slipped back out with a snappy goodbye, I never thought I’d see her again.

Until I walked into my Friday morning meeting.

At first, I didn’t recognize her—she was dry this time. But from the look on her face, she recognized me.

When she gave the worst pitch I’ve ever sat through, I thought my boss, and mentor, was going to show her the door—except he accepts the proposal and tells me we have to work together.

I didn’t anticipate I would like her, let alone be interested in her. Sure, she was hot and sassy.

But something about her rubbed me the wrong way.

And yet I couldn’t stop thinking about her.

So, when she leaves the room and her phone chimes with a new text, I knew I wasn’t supposed to look.

I also knew I wasn’t supposed to cancel her date for later that evening.

And I definitely knew I wasn’t supposed to delete the entire exchange, so she had no idea what I’d done.

But I did. And then I showed up at the restaurant, pretending like this was all a big coincidence.

When the date is over, I want more. I need more.

We start pretend-dating because she needs practice, and I tell myself, New York’s most eligible billionaire bachelor, that this is just a bit of fun.

What could possibly go wrong?

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this book by the author for an honest review

Jurnee went to New York to experience life and practice date for 6 weeks he to try and pitch an idea of opening a single coffee shop. After getting caught in the rain on her way to her first blind date and then him being rude as can be she doesn’t even know what to do. Well when she lands a business meeting with a huge firm over her coffee shop she runs into her date there and wonders what i going on. Anderson is a high most influential bachelor in New York, and tried very hard not to end up in the tabloid so he live a very low key life if at all possible. But when Jurnee coming into his life and she has no idea who he is and he starts to wonder if she is real at all he has never met a woman who didn’t know who he was or wanted his money. Will they both be able to lower there walls that were built after past breakups and things that were said to them and be able to actually be happy or will it blow up in their faces. Thi book was so good i loved it from the beginning Jurnee’s sass and determination just files off the pages and Anderson’s cocky swag flies off as well i loved it so much.

Alexandria Sure is from Michigan and adores her supportive family, her two rescue pups, and her mighty Spartans. Her coffee obsession leads her to writing in local coffee shops where characters come alive between salted caramel lattes and large cups of “cold brew extra cream two Splenda,” which are usually on the counter when she walks in because the baristas know her car. (Thanks, Biggby!)

When she is not writing, she spends a great deal of her time perfecting her craft. She is an active member of Capital City Writers Association and attends several writing conferences each year.

Sure’s first novel, Before Him Comes Me, is an unconventional romance of self-discovery, described by readers as “the first BDSM book with no sex.”

#wotr #attendingauthor #newrelease Lord Maxwell’s Quest (The “Other” Trents 2) by Jane Charles



Lord Maxwell Trent has never remained in one place for long. His fascination for history and quest for antiquities have taken him from Pompeii to Greece to Egypt, and now the search of an ancient sword has brought him to London—and back into Miss Rosemary Fairview’s orbit.

Miss Fairview has always valued her independence. Raised by travel-mad parents and fascinated by her mother’s archaeological journals, she knew that she’d never be content to settle into the dull life of running a household. When word of the lost sword brings Rosemary to London, she finds herself in pursuit of the same relic as her nemesis, Lord Maxwell Trent.

They know it’s impossible the sword once belonged to The Maid of Orléans. But that one sliver of hope, the what-if, propels them on the quest to discover the truth.

Danger stalks them from Mayfair’s drawing rooms to the maze of London’s rookeries. Can they work together to find the sword—and to survive? And will they realize that perhaps they shouldn’t have been competitors at all, but something more?

#wotr #attendingauthor #newrelease Viper (Nighthawks MC 1) by C.J. Pinard


As coldblooded as a snake, but loyal to a fault.

Vampire Vane Matson formed the Nighthawks MC after having to clean up one too many messes made by his kind. Known for his ruthless tactics and eerily quiet and snakelike approach, he quickly became “Viper” and continued to build his MC with men and women just as callous and as equally trustworthy.

Viper has avoided personal relationships most of his existence, until one night, he’s called to a routine clean-up, a mess made by a pack of filthy wolves. It leaves him forced to take in a stray human named MyAnna, whose shiny black hair and big, soulful eyes are too much for him to resist. Breaking his number one rule, he tells himself it’s only temporary and then he’ll be rid of the burdensome human soon enough. Until she refuses to leave.

With his secrets threatening to be exposed, will Viper be forced to get rid of MyAnna permanently, or will she win over his cold, unbeating heart?

#wotr #attendingauthor #standalone Amusement by Albany Walker

She’s everything I shouldn’t want, but exactly what I crave.

She bleeds innocence the way I radiate darkness. The moment she walked into my club, she was mine. She just didn’t know it. I’ll be the one to ruin her, and she will love every second.

Innocence lost can’t be regained.

My life seems rather simple from the outside. I’m the devoted daughter to a former rodeo champion. I never wanted to follow my mother’s footsteps into the arena. My boots are firmly planted in the dirt on our family farm, but an accident changed everything.Now I spend my nights on a stage, and my days in the barn. Dancing has paid the bills for the past two years, but no one knows my secret. Or so I thought.

Amusement is the darkly sweet duel POV stalker romance you didn’t know you needed

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Oh my i can’t even put into word how amazing this book was. So Lucy is the sole provider for her family after her mom was in a car accident and couldn’t work so at 18 he did what she had to do she just didn’t know it would be working at a strip club, but the rule was they could look but couldn’t not touch her. She was doing whatever she could to make sure she could pay the bills to keep her family ranch. One day at the store she ran into Rafe and he was determined to get to know her to get her to be his. Little did Lucy know that he already knew way more about her then she knew and he was stalking her to make sure no one else would have her. Will Rafe get what he want without her finding out who he truly is or will Lucy run in the other direction. This story was wow it kept me in on my toes with each page, I’m so glad I choose to get this book it definitely wont be the last time I read Albany’s books

Albany lives in Michigan where she’s happily married to her high school sweetheart. She spends most of her time juggling her four children’s extracurricular activities, with her nose stuck in a book. When not reading you can find her writing her very own book boyfriends. Albany’s passion is writing romance with real characters that are far from perfect, but always seem to find their own happily ever afters

#review #partofaseries After Us (TNG 6) by J.M. Walker

Jaron-

She was mine.

Her heart.

Her body.

All of her.

Piper Michaels and I had been through so much together in such a short amount of time. I wasn’t sure how we would get through it but we had to. It wasn’t just us we were looking out for anymore.

Being away from my family for more than a year, messed with my head. I had to do things to survive. To make it back to her. To both of them.

She used to be vibrant and filled with life but ever since I ended up in jail, the light no longer existed in Piper and it was instead covered by a darkness. But I vowed to help her find the light.

No matter the cost.

-Piper-

He was back.

In my life.

For good.

Forever.

Jaron Mercer rescued me. But after spending more than a year in jail, he came back a different person. No longer was he the man I had fallen in love with but a shell of himself instead. Now we would have to work even harder to be together.

Even though he was taken from me, he left me a gift in return. I was constantly reminded of his love. For me. For her.

While we tried reconnecting and finding us all over again, there was a plan behind the scenes to make him pay for what he’d done.

For good

I was given this book by the author and this is my honest opinion

Where do I even begin. Jaron went to jail after killing the mayors son for trying to rape Piper, and now he was finally getting out and to met his daughter and be reunited with his girl. Piper had all the feelings when it came time for Jaron to finally come home ad be with them again, she was happy to have him back in her arms, but scared that it wouldn’t last. Weeks went by and things were getting to be normal as they could be when Jaron was threaded by the scumbag of a mayor and threated Piper and Brynn. Well when threats are thrown at his girls Jaron and the club take actions into their own hands or will hey wait till something bad happens to get even. Do they have what it takes to keep their love strong when everything keeps pulling at them and shit really hits the fan. Omg i just loved their story although I’m not a fan of the moments that almost made me cry it was just the way the story had to go and J.M. Does a wonderful job to continue to pull you in and make you fall harder and harder for this family.

J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who hit USA Today with Wanted: An Outlaw Anthology. She loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.

#wotr #attendingauthor #seriestarter Makin’ Bacon (homegrown cafe 1) by Mellanie Szereto


The women of The Homegrown Café Book Club are over 40, single, and loving it. Fate, however, has a different plan with a younger man for every last one of them.

Divorcée Tate Madison wasted fifteen years of her life with a liar and a cheat. Now she’s returned to her hometown to open The Homegrown Café, find a sperm donor, and spend time with her family and new friends. Encouraged by her fellow middle-aged book-club buddies, she begs a favor from her younger brother’s best friend—father the child her ex-husband denied her. Complications abound when she discovers she’s attracted to the man who wasn’t supposed to be more than an anonymous profile at the clinic.

Pig farmer Jim Cochon knows all about in-vitro fertilization, but he’d rather do things the old-fashioned way with the irresistible redhead he’s wanted to marry since he was five. Too bad she refuses his proposal the morning after their attempt to make a baby. He’ll have to convince her second chances are worth taking when happily-ever-after is at stake.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Tate just got out of a 15 year long relationship/ marriage after trying hard for a child but finding out not only had her husband been lying to her, and cheating on her but he also went and got a vasectomy without her knowing. No wonder she wasn’t able to get pregnant, so she got divorced and went back home to open a restaurant. Well little did the pig farmer who had a major crush on Tate since he was 5 know that she was back in town. Jim was Tate’s little brother’s best friend and was head over heel in love with her and she thought he was the perfect donor for her to get a kid from. Will she get the sperm she’s hoping for or will he think she’s crazy and run for the hills. This was such a cute small town story.

 

When her fingers aren’t attached to her keyboard, Mellanie Szereto enjoys hiking, Pilates, cooking, gardening, and researching for her stories. Many times, the research partners with her other hobbies, taking her from the Hocking Hills region in Ohio to the Colorado Rockies and the Adirondacks of New York. Sometimes, the trip is no farther than her garden for ingredients and her kitchen to test recipes for her latest steamy tale. Mellanie makes her home in rural Indiana with her husband of thirty-four years and their son.

 

#wotr21 #attendingauthor #novella #DualReview -Quinton (Ariel Kimber 6.6) by Mary Martel

Quinton Alexander is the head of his coven, or so he thinks.

He’s the type of man who would go to any extreme to protect his loved ones, and he’s also the type of man who would do anything it took to make sure they are all happy.

He grew up in a way that taught him that the only thing that really mattered in this whole world was keeping the people you love safe—a lesson he learned at a very young age from his twisted, sadistic father.

But sometimes in a man’s life, it’s nice to know that the people you love care just as much about you as you do them. Sometimes, it’s nice to be able to put yourself first for once.

Especially when it comes to the girl of your dreams, whom you have to share with the rest of your coven.

When it comes down to it, though, who’s going to go to extremes to protect the leader of the coven when he needs it? Who’s going to keep him safe? Or is he going to have to do what he always does and look after himself?

Quinton Alexander is an Ariel Kimber Novella. It’s a part of a reverse harem series. It contains mature content and is best suited for readers 18+.

Finally in the mind of the beloved uncle panty thief. We finally learned why he is the way he is and why he can be such a asshole to people. When growing up Quinton was tortured and abused by his father and while he was the beloved more like hated council members would watch but Quinton would rather he deal with the abuse instead of his mother or nephew. So having nightmares about reliving his childhood is making sleeping less and less. But he will do anything to protect his family, and do anything to protect Ariel the only girl to get into his heart and stay there so much that he went and bought her 2of the most adorable hairless kittens which steals the entire covens hearts Bone and Ash steal the show. But once he has them they uncover a shit ton of issues with the seller and it spells out trouble for uncle Q. Will be make it out without his past coming back to kill him and hurting the ones he truly cares about the most or will they continue to hide and be careful. Omg omg omg I love uncle a so much this story is  perfect the one liners are great the sexy scenes are hawt as can be.

My future baby daddy finally gets his own POV novella!!  Franz it did NOT disappoint.

So Quint/Uncle Quinton/Uncle Panty Thief loves our girl Ariel with a fierceness that even he is scared of and shocked by.  He will do anything to show her how much he loves her even buying her things he never in a million year would have thought of buying AND well..trying to keep them for himself.  LOL

I loved this book because we get to see what is actually in his head and at times, he is a bit of a drama queen.  LOL  For real baby let go of the secret thread ok!! Ok!!  But we get to see him bonding with Ariel and Tyson…and yeah, its good bonding *wink* What I really loved was finally seeing what happened to him as a child.  I mean we kinda knew his dad was all kinda of awful but year having him relive moments made me hurt for the little boy he was.

I enjoyed meeting new characters and wonder what crazy Finn will bring into the coven’s lives plus how will Bone and Ash respond to the family.  But I am so ready for the next book…..and maybe a little Salt and Pepper Twin loving!!!

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Unforgotten Family (Ariel Kimber series 6 ) by Mary Martel



Ariel Kimber has settled into life with her family and coven. Everything seems to be as it should, and she finally feels like she’s exactly where she needs to be in her life.

Her dad is awesome and she loves getting to know him.

Her guys are the best and she falls deeper in love with them by the day.

Her job at Fortunes for the Unfortunate does not suck and she’s more than happy to spend her days there.

Her guardians have become family to her and she finally thinks she’s living the good life.

But, like everything else in Ariel’s life, that goodness does not last.

When the Council comes to call, she answers and refuses to bend to their will. They are not men who take this lightly and there will be consequences.

And her dream walking has gotten out of control and takes her to someone she can’t forget or leave behind.

Her life quickly becomes a mess, and she’s forced to do things that threaten her relationships in order to try and dig her way out of it. She’ll do anything for the sake of her coven, but at what cost?

And will they forgive her when it’s all said and done?

Oh wow wow Mary really took us there. Ok so Ariel and Dash have now offically moved into the big house with their own space but still under the same roof, and all the guys are loving having her there. A lot of steamy thing happen in this book which makes the slow burning totally worth it, Tyson finally gets him some and we find out that sexy uncle Quinton has a piece of jewelry in the perfect spot. Ariel also does a few thing that really pisses her men off but with Quinton on her side she knows that it will all work out in the end or so she hopes so because this one plan of her might never be able to have them forgive her and it just might tear them from her forever. Everything she had gone though Ariel does it for the people she loves and this mission is no exception.

I’m reviewing just Charmed by Mary Martel

Oh my this was such a good story Clover is a kickass momma wolf who will do anything to protect her daughter. At the age of 17 Clover ran away from home after she had been raped by her father’s beta wolf and she then found out she was pregnant and she would not let her daughter be around a monster like that. But 7 years later she found herself heading back home where she would hope her daughter would never know. But with the death of her father she knew she would be the new alpha but going back home would mean facing the one man who hurt you the most. Will she keep on the journey home or will she take her daughter and turn around and run in a different direction. Oh I loved this story and Rosie is hilarious I loved that little girl and her mom is just as amazing.

This review is for Mary Martel – Charmed

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This was a great quick read and I would love more of this would and clover and her guards.

Clover took off as a teen left everything and everyone she knew. She was the Alpha’s daughter and wheat she endured she felt would have crumbled the pack. After being away for several years she feels the called to take her place as Alpha.

Upon arriving home Clover realizes a few things. First, her pack still loves her and still has her back. Not only do they have her back but her daughter, Rosie’s too. Her dad knew she would return and placed three men as her guards.

There was instant chemistry between Clover and the three guards. Gunn, Price and Black have known Clover was the one before she ever arrived home. I enjoyed reading about this pack not only Clover, Rosie, and the guys but also her aunt Layla. I loved that Rosie nicknamed Black the silver one and wrapped all three of them around her little finger. This was an enjoyable read but really would like more.

Favorite Quote:

Losing a parent lift a hole inside your chest that never healed, no matter how often you tried to plug it up. The pain faded in time, but it never fully went away. Some memory would crop up out of the blue and hit you right in the feels. Next thing you knew, your ass would be on the floor bleeding form an invisible wound.
