#ReleaseDay #MMRockstarRomance #PartOfASeries —Rhône’s Rebel by: TL Travis



Rhone Horne, drummer for the band Embrace the Fear, bleeds rock ‘n roll. Being the son of legendary drummer Sage Horne, the first time Rhone picked up his father’s old drumsticks, he knew he was destined to follow in his footsteps. But filling such big shoes would not come easily.

Ely Pearcy, made a promise to himself on his eighteenth birthday that he would never again hide who he was. His love of lace, silk, and six-inch heels got him banned from his childhood home the day he graduated high school. Alone and penniless, Ely sought solace in a local LGBTQA+ shelter amongst his peers.


Rhone’s Rebel is the 5th book in the multi-author Road To Rocktoberfest series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but why not stay and enjoy the whole show? If you like scorching tales of hot rock stars and the men who love them, then you’ll adore the untamed musicians of Rocktoberfest!

Rhone’s Rebel takes place between Derek’s Destiny, book 2 and Jaxson’s Nemesis, book 3 of the Maiden Voyage series.

#WOTR21 #NewRelease #Review #Suspense #Duet #BookTwoOfTwo —Enduring Act by: H. D’Agostino


Ever have a dream that’s so vivid you believe that it’s real? All the things you’ve wanted are in your grasp. You’re happy and free. You believe that you’ve finally made it, and then you wake up.
The nightmare you know as your life is back. No one understands what you’re going through, and no one believes the things you tell them. He has them all fooled. He’s convinced them he’s perfect. He tells them he loves you, and they believe the lies.
How much must you endure before they see? How far can you bend before you break? How long must the nightmare last before you escape?

Review by Twinsie Tenise

I want to start by saying if you have not read Vanishing Act- book 1 in the duet- its a MUST before starting this book.

Enduring Act picks up right where book one left off. Vanishing Act left me saying what the… what?!? Then I finished Enduring act over a week ago and my mind is still reeling. The duet was a complete mind cluck! *wink wink*

I don’t want to go into detail about this book because it would ruin the experience for others. But I will say that the storyline is very unique and the twisted tale the author has woven had me enraptured until the very last word. If you love a book that sucks you in and keeps you up well into the night because answers are more important than sleep– then this duet is one you are definitely going to want to read.

#BisexualDiscovery #RockstarRomance —Strung Tight by: Ann Lister



– Bisexual Discovery
– First Love
– Rockstar / Roadie
– Stage fright / Anxiety
– Low Angst / HEA

What’s better than having your rock idol, Dagger Drummond be the mentor for your band? Having your band selected as one of the performing acts at the iconic music festival, Rocktoberfest.

My band was about to step onto our first professional stage. We’d more than earned our spot in the lineup. We had the talent and Dagger groomed our stage swagger. All that was left was to wow the socks off of the audience.

It should be easy, except I had major anxiety issues and it’s frowned upon when lead singers collapse on stage from panic attacks. Another detail adding to my anxiety level, I recently fell in love with a man. Imagine that, a straight guy falling for a dude. It’s the stuff stories are made of – and yet it’s my life.

Rocktoberfest was supposed to be fun but our trip turned sour when my guy went AWOL. Now my concentration is shot and my is heart heavy thinking his absence might have more to do with him not wanting to be with me than missing the bus. One way or another, I had to give the performance of my career – regardless of what was going on inside my head or my heart.

Strung Tight is the 1st book in the multi-author Road To Rocktoberfest series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but why not stay and enjoy the whole show? If you like scorching tales of hot rock stars and the men who love them, then you’ll adore the untamed musicians of Rocktoberfest!

I received a copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review.Fletcher is the lead singer for an up-and-coming band called Chaos. They’ve been playing at dive bars but now they are headed to a MUCH bigger venue and Fletcher’s nerves are through the roof.


Dallas has a bit of a checkered past. Now he is working for his dad as a roadie. The 2 meet and become instant friends but its hard to deny there is a little more to their “relationship” than just being friends. The question is- are either of them actually willing to admit it?

Throughout the book the reader gets to know these 2 men; their strengths, weaknesses, fears, and desires. The book was oh-so-good and definitely bingeworthy. I really feel like I need a nice, long, cold shower to cool off from all the hotness within these pages. Oh. My! There is definitely no denying the chemistry between these 2 men.

This was my first read by this author but definitely not my last. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on more of her words. Strung Tight is book 1 in the Rocktoberfest series. A series by 7 different authors about 7 different bands on their way to Nevada for a music festival called Rocktoberfest. It definitely set the bar high for the next 6 books. With that being said, I cannot wait to dive into book 2

#Review #PartOfASeries —Breach by: KI Lynn

To keep myself safe I hide in the world and let life move around me.
My new partner, Nathan, isn’t safe. Far from it.
The darkness coils around him, hidden by a shield created by a blinding smile. But those who live in darkness see past the façade we create.
Even in darkness, there is light. A spark that ignites, then explodes.
Every filthy word from his mouth, every possessive touch—I crave them, need them. Violent and passionate and everything I need to fill the void inside me, but one thing is missing.
He can never love me.
More than my heart is on the line, and I don’t know if I’ll survive our breach.

Delilah is just going through the motions in life due to a horrendous childhood. What she is doing is not living, she is merely existing.
Nathan has been battling his demons for years and can’t move forward because of guilt.
2 severely damaged people who can no longer fight their attraction. They finally give in, but at what cost? He made her feel again. She seems to be breaking him further. Will they be able remove past their pasts and finally be happy? Or has too much damage been done in the past for that to even be a possibility?

This was the first book I’ve read by K.I. Lynn. I absolutely loved it! The storyline kept me riveted. I couldn’t put it down, rushing to get to the end. Once I got there I don’t think I have ever cussed so much at a books ending. It’s a major cliffhanger, but I feel it was the perfect way for it to end. I immediately one-clicked book 2, Infraction. I couldn’t wait to see where Nathan and Delilah’s story went from there.

About K.I. Lynn

K.I. Lynn is the USA Today Bestselling Author from The Bend Anthology and the Amazon Bestselling Series, Breach. She spent her life in the arts, everything from music to painting and ceramics, then to writing. Characters have always run around in her head, acting out their stories, but it wasn’t until later in life she would put them to pen. It would turn out to be the one thing she was really passionate about.

Since she began posting stories online, she’s garnered acclaim for her diverse stories and hard hitting writing style. Two stories and characters are never the same, her brain moving through different ideas faster than she can write them down as it also plots its quest for world domination…or cheese. Whichever is easier to obtain… Usually it’s cheese.

#Review #Standalone #DarkRomance ThrowbackThursday —Destroyed by: Pepper Winters



She has a secret.

I’m complicated. Not broken or ruined or running from a past I can’t face. Just complicated.

I thought my life couldn’t get any more tangled in deceit and confusion. But I hadn’t met him. I hadn’t realized how far I could fall or what I’d do to get free.

He has a secret.

I’ve never pretended to be good or deserving. I chase who I want, do what I want, act how I want.

I didn’t have time to lust after a woman I had no right to lust after. I told myself to shut up and stay hidden. But then she tried to run. I’d tasted what she could offer me and damned if I would let her go.

One secret destroys them.

Destroyed…what a perfect description of how I felt at a certain point. I ugly cried for at least an hour! I had to take some time to get back to normal before I wrote my review.

Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. My emotions were all over the place. I’ll admit I didn’t like Roan he made me mad on more than one occasion. But then something happened that made me start to root for him. I wanted him to get a HEA, I felt he deserved one.
Hazel irritated me at times but I understood where she was coming from & why she did some of the things she did. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil the book. I know this story will stay with me for a long time.

My only complaint is that I didn’t want it to end. Well done Pepper Winters Destroyed was FANTASTIC & it deserves way more than 5 stars!

#Review #Standalone #MMRomance #FriendsToLovers #Wotr21 —Forever Better Together by: AD Ellis

Can best friends find true love? What if your best friend is your adopted brother?

Griffin can’t fathom his life without Quincy, but he also can’t ignore the crazy sexual attraction buzzing between them.
When Quincy offers up a contract to determine if the sexual tension brewing between them is worth jeopardizing their nearly decade-long friendship, Griffin finds himself helpless to say no.
Will they lose everything they’ve found in each other, or will they seize the opportunity to turn their friendship into something even better?

Forever Better Together is a male/male opposites attract, friends-to-lovers story with delicious sexual tension, a sizzling hot striptease, and emotions guaranteed to punch you in the gut.

Goodreads

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

The best way i can think of to describe Forever Better Together is as a cute- no so much friends- to friends- to lovers romance.

Griffin is 10 when he comes to live with Quincy’s family. Things start off a bit rocky with the 10 year olds but they quickly become best friends. The 2 are inseparable. Well, until life has other plans. No matter what life throws at them the friends find their way back to each other. Now if they could only admit to each other how they feel, I’m sure it would make both of their lives a whole lot easier.

Griffin and Quincy quickly won over my heart. They are my new favorite characters by A.D. Ellis. I just loved everything about them and their journey! This book is one that I know will stay with me forever. The storyline was just as unique as the characters themselves.

About A.D. Ellis

A.D. Ellis is an Indiana girl, born and raised. She spends much of her time in central Indiana as an instructional coach/teacher in the inner city of Indianapolis, being a mom to two amazing school-aged children, and wondering how she and her husband of nearly two decades haven’t driven each other insane yet. A lot of her time is also devoted to phone call avoidance and her hatred of cooking.
She loves chocolate, wine, pizza, and naps along with reading and writing romance. These loves don’t leave much time for housework, much to the chagrin of her husband. Who would pick cleaning the house over a nap or a good book? She uses any extra time to increase her fluency in sarcasm.
A.D. uses she/her or they/them pronouns.

#Review #Standalone #Wotr21 #AttendingAuthor Broken Scars by: JM Walker

Ruined. Tortured. Broken.

What could have been the perfect childhood, turned into a hell that the devil himself would shy away from. I was forced to deal with an evil that would make the darkest of souls cringe.

Lily Noel was scarred but beautiful. She was perfectly flawed and everything that I needed.

Attraction bordered on obsession.
Passion bordered on ecstasy.
Addiction bordered on insanity.

Nothing could get in the way of our love.
Nothing

*This book contains dark themes including sexual assault and past child abuse*

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

This book was freaking fantastic! I love a good romantic suspense and JM Walker did not disappoint with this one. Broken Scars touched all of my emotions. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at my kindle like they could actually hear me. Yep! It made me look crazy, but I don’t care. That makes it a real winner in my book.
Lily is a sweet woman whose life hasn’t always been perfect. She lives with her grandma, works at a retirement home, and spends the majority of her free time alone. And she is fine with that. Well, until she meets Lucas.
Lucas- gah Lucas! He earned a coveted spot on my Top Alphas of All Time list! He had it all; brains, brawn, a heart of gold. He had a very troubled past but he tries his best to not let that define him.
Broken Scars sucked me in from the very first page. It’s a fantastic romantic suspense with a super fine alpha and some oh so hot- blush worthy sexy moments. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to move on after finishing this one but I guess I will have to try.

About J.M. Walker

#WOTR21 #MMRomance #ReleaseDay #Review #FriendsToLovers —Let Love Win by: AD Ellis


Skyler Byrd lost three years with his family and got an abusive relationship as his consolation prize. When Skyler finally reaches his breaking point, he finds himself homeless and in desperate need of his brother’s help.

Donovan Badger is living his dream with his best friend, Charlie, by his side. When Charlie’s younger brother shows up after three years, Van is immediately drawn to Skyler in a way that goes well beyond their past friendship, and is definitely against Charlie’s wishes.

Will Skyler and Van allow themselves to be kept apart? Or will they embrace what they’ve found with each other and let love win?

*Let Love Win is a steamy, friends-to-lovers, M/M romance featuring best friend’s brother, a penchant for silk, and a threesome fantasy longing to be brought to life.*

Review by Twinsie Tenise

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5 STARS⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I received a copy of Let Love Win from the author. This is my honest review.

Skylar has just escaped an abusive relationship. The man he was with was so mentally abusive, Skylar believes he is damaged goods and definitely not good enough to be loved by another. He hasn’t seen nor heard from his family in 3 years, but he needs someone, so he goes to his brother Charlie.

Van is Charlie’s best friend. They all grew up together and now he lives in a house with Charlie and they both work together. When Skylar shows up on their doorstep, soaking wet from the rainstorm, Van’s simple, single life, gets a little complicated. Van is definitely feeling something a bit more than one should feel about their best friends little brother.

Let Love Win was an oh-so-very-slow-burn. But when these 2 get past their obstacles, the smolder turns to F-I-R-E! Their biggest problem is, Charlie has warned them both to not get involved with each other. The question is- are they going to honor Charlies wishes and turn their backs on something that has the potential to be an extraordinary? Or follow their hearts and let love win?

Marauder (Gangsters of New York book 2) by: Bella Di Corte

He stole my heart out of revenge.

There was one thing I always thought was mine to give: my heart.

I never imagined a marauder would steal it out of vengeance—vengeance that had nothing to do with me. His greatest enemy happened to be the man in love with me, and somehow I became nothing but a pawn. I was no damsel in distress, though. More like an archer, ready to battle.

And my target? The marauder himself.

Cashel “Cash” Kelly.

Kelly might have been as gorgeous as he was ruthless, but he had no idea what I’d do to steal it back. Or better yet, get even.

She was determined to keep what was mine.

They say hearts can’t be stolen unless they’re willing to be. Tell that to the man everyone on the streets called “the marauder.”

Me.

Because by the time I was through, Keely Ryan’s heart would be mine. And my enemy’s? As good as broken. Trouble was, the archer was precise with her aim, and her arrow was pointed at my heart.

Marauder is the second of three books set in the savage world of the Gangsters of New York series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but they are all based in the same world.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

⭐️⭐️⭐️3 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is book 2 in a series of stand alones. You do not have to read book 1 to understand what is going on in Marauder. Keely is Mari (from book ones) BFF. Keely is a strong independent woman who doesn’t take crap from anyone, this includes a one Mr Cash Kelly.

Cash has just finished a 10 year prison term. His main goal is to get revenge on those who did him wrong. Turns out he plans to use Keely as a pawn in his twisted game to get even with the enemy. The thing is– it doesn’t exactly work out as he planned.

There were glimpses of these 2 in the first book and I was happy to finally be able to get their full story. I’m quite curious to see what happens in the 3rd book.
I read an ARC of Marauder and this is my honest review.

About Bella Di Corte

Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.

Apart from writing, Bella loves to spend time with her husband, daughter, and family. She also loves to read, listen to music, cook meals that were passed down to her, and take photographs. She mostly takes pictures of her family (when they let her) and her three dogs.

Bella grew up in New Orleans, a place she considers a creative playground.

She loves to connect with readers, so don’t hesitate to email her ( belladicorte at gmail.com ) if you’d like to reach out.

#ReleaseDay #Review #Wotr20 — Book 1 in the Survivor Duet— Vanishing Act by: H. D’Agostino


Have you ever wondered if things could be different?
What would your life be like if you chose a different path?
Would everything still be your fault?
Would he still hate you?
Would it be better or worse?
Would he love you then?
My name is Brooke Ellis. I’ve spent the last five years asking myself these questions as I try to survive my marriage.
Some things don’t change, and some people don’t want to. Sometimes the only answer is to disappear.

I received this book from the author. This is my honest review.

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Too much information will ruin this book for others and I do NOT want to do that.

I was addicted to Vanishing Act from the first word. It was a fascinating page turner that kept my rapt attention until the final word. I NEEDED the next book like YESTERDAY! I seriously cannot wait to see how this story plays out. I’m completely invested and feel like I will finally be able to move on with my life once I get brought up to speed on the lives of the characters at the center of my newest fictional world obsession.
