#review #shortstory Dirty Little Secret Santa by Alexis Adaire


 

All Callie wanted for Christmas was a good man.

All Grayson wanted was a good woman.

Luckily, they were both on Santa’s “Nice” list.

But if they don’t quit ignoring the obvious and let Santa’s magic work, they might never get together.

Looks like Santa will have to dig deep into his bag to pull off this very special Christmas gift

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Callie wanted one thing for christmas a boyfriend thats not too much to ask right? Well thats was she finds herself asking Santa for when her niece makes her also sit on his lap at the mall. Greyson finds himself giving Santa a ride to the bus stop after hes done at the mall and when Santa ask him what he wants for christmas he says a good girl who is hot. well you can call it fate or a christmas miracle but with the help from Santa these two path were forced to cross and nothing was going to stop it from them meeting up. how many signs does it take for them to get the hint if they do at all. just remember your never too old to believe in the magic of Santa

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Feel My Love (Lovelly Book 4) by Clara Stone


When it comes to family, truth matters.

For Vincent Gallo, family is everything. It’s the one thing he and the Lovellys have always seen eye to eye on. And when it comes to saving his half-brothers from their abusive mom, he’s determined to do anything—even be indebted to a Lovelly. 

But the second Ivy Rose bumps into him, she’s all he can think about. Mesmerizing, gorgeous, and seemingly mute, it’s not until he gets home that he realizes, she’s a Lovelly, too. Suddenly, he understands what drew Ace and Jessica to the Lovellys. But as a long-lost half-sister, Ivy’s life hasn’t seen the privilege bestowed upon her brothers. In fact, in some ways, it mirrors Vincent’s own.

With his half-brothers’ future at stake, can he really afford to let his heart win? Or is falling for Ivy Rose a distraction that’ll cost him everything?

I was given this book and this is my honest opinion

I don’t even know how to form words for how much I loved this book. The Lovelly family has been in my heart for years and to see the last book have the end typed out hurts my heart I wasn’t ready to say goodbye but it was a great book for saying goodbye with. Ivy is the long lost sibling that has just found the Lovelly’s and at first she doesn’t want to leave her life now even though it’s not the perfect life it was her. Vincent grew up with a drug addicted step mother, has been in jail for anger issues, and is now trying to turn his life around and get custody of his 3 younger brothers from his step mom. One day he ran into a girl at the mall and ended up with Dr Pepper all over him and well you might say it was love at first sight once he looked into Ivy’s eye. This love story is one for the books it’s heartwarming, selfless and beautiful Ivy and Vincent are the prefect storm.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Clara Stone writes YA/NA Contemporary Romance and Paranormal Romance stories and is a complete sucker for sweet, memorable kisses. She strongly believes that true love conquers EVERYTHING, along with a tub of Ice cream!

When she isn’t reading or writing or dancing, much to the embarrassment of her husband and two kids, she’s probably watching Supernatural and The Walking Dead.

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.

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

What a GREAT addition to the continued ARC of this story!!!  OMG  Zeke and Dakota were awesome!!

Zeke is a baby brother in the mix of 7 brothers, so I did not feel we knew a lot about him other then he was a goofball.  So, seeing him take the reigns to protect his ever-growing family made him stand out.  His brothers are all mated and now daddies, so he jumps to try and find THE BOOK they need to keep the pack safe.

Dakota is one tough a$$ chick!!  Her character was amazing.  She is one sister-in-law or daughter-in-law the Hallows will be leaning on when the final war happens.  She has seen all the bad things the vampires are capable of and she has risen from the trauma to be a vampire hunter.

When she stalks into a bar and sees Zeke, they are both stunned and attracted instantly.  When they have a fun night, they wake up, and Zeke has some explaining to do.  We all know what they have buuuut Dakota is not a big believer is fate let alone a fated mate!!

The story goes on and we see Zeke being Dakota’s “side kick” to track down the Vampires with the book they need.  Soon they discover the vampires also have another little hidden gem for world domination so they, of course, decide to ruin that plan as well.

The story is fast paced.  We learn about a society of humans who work together to stop vampires and other bad creatures.  We learn about Dakotas past and hurt which prevents her from moving forward.  We also see Zeke becoming the selfless hero all the Hallows become to protect their mate.

The story was a great addition to the series.  I look forward to each installment and cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.  Baby brother Josh will soooo fall for his mate and we will see what happens with the overall arc of the story.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries With Us (Next Generation 2) by J.M. Walker


-Shade-

She was young.

Sweet.

Feisty.

But then there was him.

We had been best friends for years. We lived together. Rode together. Shared women. Together. And it still wasn’t enough. Not for him and especially not for me.

-Sunny-

He was mine.

I was his.

She was ours.

Meadow Rodriguez strutted into our lives and looked at us like we were all that mattered.

While I wanted to dominate her, he wanted to submit, and she wanted both.

I took control, giving her everything she needed and at the same time, grew closer with Shade. My best friend. My partner. My life. Although we were close, there was still a wedge between us.

I was terrified to give him what he needed.

My heart.

-Meadow-

Sunny was intense.

Shade hid.

I was new.

They were in love but wouldn’t admit it.

Guilt resonated on Sunny’s shoulders.

The weight of Shade’s feelings rested on his.

And I was the glue that would bring them together.

But little did I know, that I would end up falling in love.

With both of them.

I was giving this book and this is my honest opinion

Meadow was always looking for something more she’d always wanted more in life especially in the bed room. Her current fling was just to help her friend out so he would leave her relationship alone, and they just both happened to be bored. Once they finally called off their thing her and the girls decided they needed a night out, so they went to this hole in the wall bar and there she seen all the bikes lined up against the building and this one caught her eye she waited until her friends had all gone in before she went over to admire the beautiful machine of horse power and speed. When a man scared her half to death she noticed his gorgeous eyes and that he was half her age but she didn’t care at all. One thing lead to another and Meadow was sitting on his friends lap and they were flirting like crazy all three of them. Magic happened the fates were alined and this trio knew that they were meant to be together they felt it in their heart, body and soul, their sex was rough, hot and sexy as ever. You definitely need to read this book it will have you pulled in and begging or panting for more these three are super hot and work so well together on their roller coaster of a relationship.

#review #shortstory #partofaseries Resolution Take Off (resolution pact short story) by Dori Lavelle


 

It’s love at first flight…

I’m terrified of flying, but that’s exactly what I plan on doing. This year, I will fly in more ways than one.

It all starts with a text that pushes me out of my comfort zone and gives me the courage I need to quit my job and book a flight to Greece.

On the plane, I meet Carter Starr, a sexy stranger who makes me soar to heights I never expected to reach.

One look at him and my heart turns over. We’ve never met before, but his kiss, his touch, the taste of his name on the tip of my tongue…It just feels right.

Now I’m terrified of my own feelings, feelings for a man I barely know, a man who sweeps me off my feet and whisks me away. Carter Starr may be my one-way ticket to a fresh start, but what if it’s all too good to be true?

#review #shortstory #partofaseries Resolution Road Trip (resolution pact short story) by Sierra Hill

 

I was stuck in a dead-end job, with a creep of a boss and in the midst of a quarter-life crisis. So, when members of my former sorority initiated a resolution pact for the new year, I jumped right on that.

My resolution was to break out of the shackles of my boring and safe life and do something bold and daring. But I had no idea how to do that…until he came along.

As luck would have it, Nathaniel Leeds, a brilliant research scientist, was looking for a temporary assistant to help him collect and document data. The job itself didn’t sound all that exciting until I learned that it would involve a road trip.

And then I met my new boss.

And Lord help me, my handsome, Brainiac boss made me hotter than the jungles of Costa Rica.

If I can survive this road trip with my heart intact, I’m resolving never to make another resolution for as long as I live.

When Marin’s old boss had cross the line she found herself on New Years Eve wondering what’s next, when her old Sorority president since on the email that this is their year anything that they need to do they should do it and not think about it twice. So when she was talking to one of her former sisters she gave her the idea to go talk to her cousin who is a research scientist in need of an assistant. So Marin thought why not this is my year this is something I need to do, after the interview she found out she got the job on the spot but it wasn’t just for a road trip it was to go abroad to study the greenhouse effect with her new hunky good looking boss. One can only imagine what happens on the other side of the world with this sexy boss and being out in the wilderness.

Chloe Kingston: I just wanted to learn how to play the guitar.

Spurred on my one of my Mi Alpha Alpha sorority sisters New Year, New You texts, I decided to take music lessons.

Who knew I’d end up learning to play from the biggest player around, the god of indie rock…Gavin Pierce himself?

I vowed to finish the lessons I’d already paid for and never see him again.

I vowed I wouldn’t be like the throngs of screaming women lining up to spent just a night in his arms.

I vowed I wouldn’t be like every other woman in America, lusting after him so hard it made you stupid.

But I broke that vow, and now there’s no going back.

Gavin Pierce: Rock god, that’s what they called me.

Player.

Lothario.

And I was, I was all those things and more.

But I was also tired of the lifestyle, tired of partying and touring.

So when my best friend need a favor, I stepped up just for a little break and to give his struggling music store some much needed publicity.

Little did I know I would meet the woman of my dreams, the only one who would be able to save me from myself.

How did I convince her that our one night could become a lifetime together, especially when I didn’t know how to find her again?

Chloe wasn’t into this whole resolution making thing like the rest of her sorority sisters were but she’s always wanted to learn to play the guitar so she thought why not. Little did she know that when she signed up for her lessons at the local music store that her instructor would be the one and only rockstar Gavin Pierce, she was determined not to be just another fan girl but on the inside she was freaking out a bit. Gavin was determined to get Chloe to see him for more then the rockstar and to see the person he truly was. But when they go to hook up Chloe ends up passing out before the deed is done and Gavin isnt the type of guy that takes advantage of a girl when they cant consent to it, the next morning Chloe wakes up and doesn’t remember much but she’s sure they didn’t do it and when she goes to leave there are tons of photographers there to capture her walk of shame and everything goes downhill from there. Will her life every go back to normal after being seen with a rockstar and could Gavin really get the girl of his dreams and change his ways and become a one woman  guy.
