I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Nicole is a social worker helping kids find the loving homes they deserve. Well after vampires have been revealed to the human world its been making her job a little extra stressful making sure that human parents aren’t getting a vampire child for the wrong reason and trying to harvest their blood to sell, or that vampire parents aren’t using human kids just for their blood to feed off of. So at the office her boss is having the vampire warrior coming in to help them all learn some defense moves to help them if they ever are in serious trouble. In walks in the ledger of the warriors Damon and all his delicious glory and he caught the eye of Nicole but she would never let anyone know that. So in the beginning of the book it took me a while to get into it, not sure if I wasn’t in a vampire mood but oh I’m so glad that i stuck with it and didn’t wait to be in the mood to read it.  This book was amazing and you will love Damon and Nicole don’t forget to put a dollar in the f-word jar and in my opinion we need justice for Ren and Stimpy.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #SeriesStarter Just One Chance (Oh Tequila 1) by C.A Harms

Tequila, you failed me.

You left me in a terrible haze, and I can’t find my god damn wallet.

Or my left shoe.

How the hell does one lose their shoe?

I have no f*cking clue.

All I know is that my night started out with one thing in mind…to have a little fun.

The problem with that? I can’t remember a damn thing, except one.

Morgan’s soft and needy moans. It’s a sound I will never forget, and just thinking about it makes my heart race and my pulse quicken. And I want to hear it over and over again…I crave it.

But Morgan’s a mystery. The harder I try, the more she resists. There’s one thing she doesn’t know about me though…I’m not one to give up.

I’ll play her game. I’ll let her think she’s won. But in the end, I will have her.

Because all I need is Just One Chance to prove she’s meant for me…

Review by Twinsie Dee

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries What the Hex Happened (Unfortunate Spells Book 3) by Jennifer Laslie


Mortality might kill him if the crazy witch that hexed him doesn’t.

When Ashton finds himself at the wrong end of a powerful witch’s hex, gone is his comfortable life as a bartender at Hallow’s End. With his gift of thrall, he never wanted for beautiful women — human or supernatural — to warm his bed and satiate his hunger. But plagued with mortality, he’s lost his coordination, strength, and the one power that helped him catch a meal.

Gray hairs and body aches are only the first warning signs of a bigger problem. If Ashton can’t break the spell, he’s not sure he’ll make it to next week. Faced with the choice to either relive a mistake or let the hex do him in, he enlists the help of his best friend, Tensley.

Together, they embark on a trip from Texas to New York in search of the one thing they believe can cure Ashton. Only, Ashton can’t tell what’s in more danger, his immortality or the walls he’s put up around his heart. Will he be able to endure the dangers ahead without losing himself to the nightmares of his past?

#Review #ShortStory #PartofaSeries Resolution Baby Batter (Resolution Pact) by Frankie Love

Let’s get a bun in her oven.

I’m a cop with a sweet tooth and Dolly’s the treat I’m craving.

She’s finally ended things with her deadbeat boyfriend and I’m not missing the chance to make her mine.

Dolly’s the owner of my favorite donut shop and the woman with the best Bavarian cream in the city.

Damn, I love her jelly filling, her chocolate frosting, her perfect donut hole.

She may know how to make a mean old fashioned, but I know how to whip up baby batter that will get her maple glazed.

It’s a new year, and I’m ready to do more than get a bun in her oven.

I’ll be her baby daddy and her dream come true.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Kelli writes hot and steamy romances with delicious alpha males who will not stop until they get the women they crave exactly where they want them. Kelli’s heroes are tough as nails, hot as sin, and underneath the rough exterior is a heart of gold begging to be unleashed. If you think you can tame them, you’re probably right, but it won’t be an easy journey.

Make no mistake, Kelli’s stories will give you the happily ever after you need, but they’re also steamy and packed from cover to cover with exactly what you’re looking for late at night when you leave your panties by the door.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #SeriesStarter See Me (The Novus Pack Series Book 1) by M. Jayne


Throughout history, The Lady, Goddess of the Lycan world, has gifted werewolf packs with humans who carry her mark. Theodora Morrissey’s plans to return to college for her graduate degree are ended when she is awakened by an otherworldly voice on a rarely used airstrip in Nebraska. Injured and disoriented, she has no idea the discoloration on her back has marked her as a Seer, and that she is now a possession—and the prisoner—of the Novus Pack of Lycans.

To the Novus pack, the word of their leader, their Laird, is the law. With compelling gray eyes and long dark hair, Raider Black rules his pack with intelligence and ruthlessness. To cement the security of his pack, Black has committed to mate another Packleader’s daughter. But he’s finding it impossible to fight his attraction to the pack’s alluring new Seer, claiming her as his own.

Sweet, fearless, and unintentionally funny, Theo upends Black’s world and pushes the boundaries of his rules. How far is Black willing to go, and what will he sacrifice, to save both his pack and the human Seer who’s found a way not only into his bed, but his heart?

When Theodora is found in the middle of nowhere left to die and not sure how or why shes there things are about to change in her life. Raider Black was the all powerful Laird for the Novus pack of wolves, his word was law and he wanted to know how Theodora ended up on Novus land he wanted answers and wanted them as soon as he could. Theodora kept talking non scene and come to find out that she had been touched by the Lady and they were positive that she was sent to them for a reason to help Novus anyway that she could. One issue Raider’s wolf was calling to her and was going to clam her as him at all cost he didn’t care. While Theo was still trying to figure out what the hell was going on with these new powers she suddenly had. Wow oh wow this books was amazing and i could probably go on and on but I wont give anything away. Raider Black is oh so sexy and amazing Theodora is shy and stays in her bubble but had a wild possessive side to her. Will these two be able to help each other through the ups and downs or will they be doomed from the beginning.

Review by Twinsie Dee

C.E. Johnson is an author of contemporary and suspense romance novels.

When not writing until all hours of the night (with lots of late night coffee runs), she loves to read books that feature a strong male with a soft spot for his feisty heroine. She prefers stories that rip your heart out completely, then kindly place it back into your chest with a HEA.

She lives in a suburb of Chicago with her husband, two kids, and some spoiled rotten animals.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.
