#WOTR24 #SeriesStarter #AgeGap #GrumpySunshine – Whispers of Timber Creek, Timber Creek Series book 1 by S.J. Chaynie

Being relocated to a small-town PD in Colorado was the last thing I needed. Being assigned to babysit the captain’s daughter didn’t help either. She’s quirky, young, and unfortunately, the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Cap only has one rule. Keep my hands to myself. Turns out to be harder than it looks. Now I live in her house, and at night I hear her cries. She’s haunted by her dreams just like I’m haunted by my past. She may be crazy, or she may be the only key to unlocking the dark secrets of this town. The clock is ticking, and the closer we get, the more dangerous it becomes. We both heard the captain’s warning loud and clear……too bad neither of us listened.

Book 1 of the Timber Creek Series. Series will contain interconnected standalones.


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

I met this author after I saw a TikTok of hers about a different series.  I am so thankful she has allowed me to read that series and is giving me her new series to read as well.

This is a great series starter with some amazing characters we meet.  I admit as much as I LOVED the main H/h in this book, book 2’s couple has me clawing to read their story.  I mean I messaged the author to say NOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW.  She even agreed with me about their story being a great read to come.

Ok so this series starts with Jace in the shrink’s office not wanting to admit how he is feeling about the death of his partner and best friend.  He is reassigned to a small town for 3 months to get his stuff together essentially.  He goes to the town and immediately sees Camille.  He gets the official “Hands off” by her dad…ya know…his new boss the Captain of the force.  Unfortunately, circumstances will force them to be thrown together 24/7 which makes hands off near impossible.

Camille is having a hard time.  She knows what people think of her and she is a broken women thanks to her ex-boyfriend, Stuart.  She is attracted to the new detective until he talks.  Then his mouth makes her remember what a jerk he is.  LOL

This story has a LOT of chemistry. The slow burn of Jace and Camille is HAWT.  LAWD, when they finally crash and combust, loooook out!!!

The side story of the missing girls is a low theme in the story until its not.  Then we are running to figure out who, what, and why of what is happening.  I admit I was so wrapped up in the Jace and Cami when I realized what was happening, I was like RUN FASTER!!! Get going!!!!!

But Easton and Ellie….I cannot wait!!

#WOTR24 #NewRelease #FriendsToLovers #DoubleReview- Confessions of Timber Creek, Timber Creek Series Book 2 by S.J. Chaynie

Elle Andrews is my best friend. The one I let slip away, and now, she’s my four year old daughter’s new nanny. I may have had ulterior motives when I convinced her to take the job, but she needed work, and I needed a replacement. The plan was easy. Get her into my space, and prove to her that despite the past, I’ve always been hers. But when disturbing news about her parents surfaces, and four years of buried tension comes out, the plan takes an unexpected turn. There are three sides to every story. Yours. Theirs. And the truth.

Book 2 of the Timber Creek Series. Series will contain interconnected standalones.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book from the author for an honest review.

EASTON!!!  GAH!! I don’t know how many times I was messaging the author is regards to my boyfriend.  I am not a person who highlights stuff but there were so many amazing lines from him to Elle…..I melted so many times.  Like I love him so freaking much!!

Ok so you get that I loved the book right???  Now this is the 2nd book in the series but trust me what I say you don’t need to read book 1 to get this book.  I will say you totally need to read it because we see the Easton/Elle dance and well it made me totally love him before I read this book.

Easton is one of the town police officers who has loved Elle his entire life.  He can’t imagine not having her around and right when he gets the nerve to tell her…he makes an epic mistake and ruins it all. Elle has had a crap life.  She finally gets things in order and opens up to Easton and then…..GROWL

I loved Easton and Elle.  The dance they do the whole book is amazing.  They both want the other, but Elle is being stubborn annnd yes she has the right to be but…gesh Elle!!!  Easton knows he messed up and will do anything to get his girl to admit she wants to be with him too.

The banter and chemistry is so good. His zingers to get her attention made me laugh so many times. But guys…..omg the charity auction…..lets just say I saw Easton in a whole new light!!  MMMMMMM  Yes I liked it too.

This book has me glued to it and I was not happy when I had to put it down. I read it so fast I feel like I need to reread it to enjoy it all over again!!!

Review by: Twinsie Melinda

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

First off this is a new to me author and I can absolutely tell you I will be reading more of her books.  I could not put this one down.  It had me turning the pages like crazy I did not want to set this one down.  There was so many twist that I didn’t see coming.

Elle and Easton were childhood friends but as they grew Elle felt something more for Easton. When things were headed towards something more than just friends the rug was pulled out from beneath Elle. Just like any other time in her life when things were going well something happened that turned her world upside down. Four years later and Easton was determined to make Elle his. When the stars started to line up for him, he jumped at the chance to try to make her his.

I loved Elle and Easton the chemistry between them was thick. To watch them was like spinning magnets on a table repelling when they don’t line up but when they connect OH BOY do these two connect.  Let me just say charity auction. I enjoyed the side characters also and I like getting to know them a bit.  I need to go back and read the first book and I am on pins and needles waiting for the next book.

#WOTR24 #Paranormal – The Trickster Makes a Match by Bria Quinlan, narration by BJ Harrison

Minx Marksman—daughter of a Supermodel and a famous Rocker—wants nothing more than a normal, crazy-free life. One more nannying gig will earn her enough to achieve her dream of small cottage on the coast. That last job brings her to Nocturne Falls where she’s surprised to find out it’s Halloween every day.

Not so much on the normal, but high on the adorable.

Baby Gus and Uncle Hottie—aka Tim Johnson—seem to be a walk in the park at first. The flirty infant and the nerdy, glasses-wearing cutie grab her heart from the start. She’s falling fast for both guys, but she can’t help but notice that some things aren’t quite what they seem…


Review by Twinsie Angie

I bought this audiobook.

I have been devouring Bria’s backlist and when I saw this one, I said why not!!  I mean its paranormal = my jam. It’s a novella = Quick read.  It’s audio = YEEESSSS!!!  I love audio and the narration for the story was ok.  BJ wasn’t my favorite, but he wasn’t the worst by any stretch.  I like I just am obsessed by Brittany who narrated her other books so switching seemed just WRONG!!

Minx, the new nanny, Gus, the adorable baby, annnnd Tim, the nerdy uncle, are the cast in this sweet novella.  Minx is hired to help new uncle Tim take care of Gus.  I haven’t read any of the Nocturne Falls Universe so I don’t know how they are but this one was hilarious.  Bria writes some of the best crazy characters.  This story is another great one.

Minx and Tim are just trying to figure this nanny gig out but someone is not about to let them escape the love bug.  I loved the story and it was a great Sunday afternoon drive audio book.  It was a couple hours long and perfect for anyone who loves a great HEA filled with hilarious storylines.

Bria Quinlan is an award-nominated bestselling author of eight Romantic Comedies and YA Issue Books (that she swears are funny…really. They are.) Her books make you snort Diet Coke out your nose or tear up and curse her name.


#WOTR24 #NewRelease #Halloween #Dark #Triggers – Don’t Be Scared by AJ Merlin

Don't Be Scared by [AJ Merlin]

Every town has a history.

Ours is just a little darker than most.

For years I’ve celebrated Halloween and Hollow Bridge’s history with everyone else who lives here. Parades, festivals, and insane Halloween parties have always been a staple for us. Some bad behavior is expected, given what we’re celebrating.

But murder has never been on the table before.

Someone in Hollow Bridge wants to bring the stories to life, and they’re not firing any warning shots. When rumors of someone wearing a Halloween mask surface, it isn’t long before the first person is killed.

No one is safe, but when I end up with a serial killer kneeling over me and a knife at my throat, I expect to be the next victim of the Hollow Bridge killer. I don’t expect for him to speak to me, from behind the garish mask he wears.

“Who should be the next to die, Bailey?”

Inexplicably, he lets me go. But I’m never going to be safe from him.

Because he wants more from me than just a name.

Don’t Be Scared is a full-length, MMF standalone for anyone looking for a spicy and dark Halloween read. It contains graphic violence, darker kinks, and murder. For a full list of triggers, please use the look inside feature.


AJ Merlin would rather write epic love stories than live them. I mean, who wants to limit themselves to only falling in love once? She is obsessed with dark fantasy, true crime, and also dogs. From serial killers to voyeurs all the way down to the devil himself, AJ’s specialty is in writing irredeemable heroes who somehow still manage to captivate their heroines (and her readers).

#PreOrderBlitz – The Deal with the Playboy by J.M. Stoneback

Guess who gets cut off from her family’s inheritance because she decided to dump her cheating ex?
Which led me to be on the lookout for a fake fiancé who is filthy rich so he can impress my mother.

Luckily for me, I attended an exclusive masquerade ball hosted by the infamous American Billionaire Club and landed hot-as-sin billionaire mogul Jasper Barrett.

He buys me as his date for the night and offers me a deal I can’t refuse.

Be his wife in order for him to inherit his uncle’s business.

But he has two rules for our marriage of convenience to work:
Look pretty on his arm.
Play the happy wife in public.

We both get to use each other—sounds easy, right?

But every kiss sends a shiver down my spine, and every touch ignites passion inside of me.

We should stop this before I fall in love.

The only problem is… I can’t stop, no matter how hard I try.

My heart is on the line, and I’m afraid he’ll smash it into pieces.

This book is a complete STANDALONE and part of The New York Night Series. Every book in the series will be different characters in the same world.

#NewRelease # MC – Cougar (Nameless Order MC, Book 6) by Michele Lee

Cougar (Nameless Order MC Book 6) by [Michele    Lee]

Joining the Nameless Order meant I finally had a family. They took me in and gave me love, support, and anything else I needed to ensure I survived. We’ve been through hell and back, and it’s still only the beginning.

A war has been declared.


Michele Lee is made up of two moms that met through a reading group and found an instant connection via the books we love to read. We started to talk daily and found that we both had been working on our own books. Sharing those books with each other, we realized that we have the same writing style and a few ideas stored away that we could combine and make into an amazing world.

So, that’s what we did. We are currently working on multiple stories and have multiple plots written. Now, the struggle is finding the time to get it all out on paper.

With seven kids between us, two husbands, and day jobs, we are working on our stories as fast as we can. However, we are taking the time needed as well to produce the most amazing stories.

The most fun fact about us though? We have NEVER met in person. Everything is done via text messages, late-night video calls, multiple pages of notes, and hundreds of Google Docs.

It works though, and our “date nights” are the best because they are productively unproductive. Oops.
