#NewRelease #Review – My Anti-hero by: Tijan

My Anti-Hero by Tijan is now live!

shouldn’t have agreed to this. What was I thinking?
Appearing on a local news show? Just because something happened to me?
I live mostly in isolation on purpose.
But here I am.
I was so nervous that I needed the make-up chair, twice.
And then I walked past his room.
He’s a giant—no softness, all muscle.
And a rich beard that made me want to rub myself all over it.
He made me see stars, literally because the second time I saw him, I tripped.
Or I would’ve, but he caught me, and the cameras were rolling.
Soon, that clip will be trending because he wasn’t just another guest on the show.
He’s Brett Broudou, the Kings’ newest football star.
We couldn’t be more opposite.
The only special thing about me is the reason I was on the show.
Brett, the Super Bowl champion, and me, the survivor who helped bring down the infamous Midwest Butcher.
Brett might not think he’s anyone’s hero, but he’s about to become mine.

I received an arc from the Author for an honest review.

I absolutely love Tijan’s writing so when I saw this one I jumped at the chance without reading what the book is about. I do not usually read or listen to True Crime or dark. I was a bit nervous when I started this and realized what it was about. I have to say I LOVED everything about this book. Billie and Brett both pulled me in so fast and deep it was hard to set this book down.

Billie has been through so much in her lifetime. Always losing those she loves. Being in the house when she lost her best friend and survived the Midwest Butcher. Then loosing her mother and brother within the same week. Billie is a loner likes her life of solitude with her chickens but every year since the killing of her best friend she is tossed into the limelight that she wants no part of. Billie decides to do her first TV interview about surviving the Midwest Butcher, when she stumbles into the one and only Brett Broudou the newest rising football player.

What can I say about Brett Broudou. I loved him really he is a famous football player and always in the media. However, he is not one to search out the fame. To be honest when these two came together I was not sure how it would work. Brett and Billie make the perfect pair. He is so protective of her looking out for her wanting to make sure she is safe. The date he takes her on knowing her love of animals it was perfect.

I felt so many emotions while reading this book. It was like being on the best rollercoaster there were great happy moments, then there was some oh crap now what moments and in between we had sweet and funny moments. I enjoyed seeing new characters and seeing some of the characters from other books of Tijan’s. It’s always nice to see someone you knew and liked. I would love to learn more about some of Brett’s teammates now that we have seen them.

A few of my favorite quotes:

“She left her digits for you.” I snatched it up. “I got her number?” “You got her number.” He studied me thoughtfully. “First time I’ve seen you like this.”

For all the chaos in the world, there was also magic. I didn’t know how to explain it, to understand it, but as Brett drove up the driveway, it was there, Magic. A calm in the storm.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

Savage Angels MC collections Books 1-9

This is the first time reading a Kathleen Kelly book.  I picked the book set because hello MC and Rocker combined how could you go wrong.  The series starts with Dane the president of the MC and Kat the singer of a rock band. The thing I liked about these books was that we go so many POV.  Each book did not just focus on the hero/heroine but we got a little from other people involved in the MC, the band or the town people.  I liked how each book lead into the next and there was overlap in each book.

There are so many twist and turns in each of these books.  I questioned some of the characters but things turned out well for all involved even if it wasn’t what I wanted to happen.  I enjoyed reading about all the MC guys and their women, the band members and how they deal with everything and the towns people and how they react to the MC.

I have not read a book that gives you so many character POV from the first book to the last. I will say sometimes I would get lost in who’s POV it was I would take a second to remember who was talking.  I didn’t want to put this book down once I started it and sometimes, I didn’t realize another book started. It kept my interest and I needed to know what was going to happen next.

I loved all the characters in these books.  OK well not ALL of them. There was just so much going on between the MC, the band, and the towns people, including the sheriff. I enjoyed this series so far and cannot wait the next two books to come out.

Kathleen Kelly is a USA Today Best Selling Author and was born in Penrith, NSW, Australia. She married her childhood sweetheart and they live in Toowoomba, Queensland with their fur baby, Freya.

Kathleen enjoys writing contemporary, romance novels with a HEA… for now. She draws her inspiration from family, friends & the people around her. She can often be found in cafes writing and observing the locals.

Kathleen loves to be contacted by those who love her books.

#WOTR24 #Review Book Tour – Deranged Ink #2 by C A Harms

Title: Deranged Ink, Book #2
Series: Inked Boys
Author: CA Harms
Genre/Tropes: Friends to Lovers, Second Chance, Tattooed Bad Boy
Release Date: October 31, 2023
Cover Design: Melissa Gill Designs

I’ve never been the kind of girl to take the easy way out. I learned at too young of an age there are no such things as fairy tales. Happy endings never came to people like me.
The tarnished ones.
I’m surrounded by a group that knows sadness too well. We know what it’s like to lose and be tossed away like last night’s trash.
We are easy to blame for all the wrongs, because when others look at us, they see our scars. Most of our stories are told in the ink we bear, but we wear those tales proudly.
Oliver Riggins is the first man I’ve run across that made me feel like I could have more. But he’s also one of the many men who are more family to me than my own flesh and blood.
Four brothers by choice, they’ve taken me in, and treated me as one of their own.
The problem is, I’ve always wanted more from Oliver.
I’ve felt an instant connection to him from the first day I walked into Deranged Ink. But the fear of ruining what we have and then in the end not having him at all, that was too hard to bear.
So instead, I’ve sat back and watched the parade of women in his life, but with each one I feel a little part of me crumble away.
I want him, I’ve always wanted him.
Maybe it’s time I stop running.
Maybe it’s time I start fighting for the things I want.

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

After reading book 1 I had a soft spot for Luna and wanted to know her story.  Really a tough girl that is friends with these crew of guys is my kinda girl.  I wanted to know what happened to her to land her with this misfit group I figured it was a rough road that brought her to where she is.

Luna finally found her safe place. She felt safe in her home and with the guys at the shop. She kept a lot of secrets Oliver being one of them.  She wanted more with Oliver but all she could do was watch him with his revolving door of women.  Things were going well for Luna until her past found a way to her and started tormenting her. She no longer felt safe where she was and Oliver was there.

Oliver never thought he was capable of love or being loved. When Oliver realized something wasn’t right with Luna his protective side came out. Oliver could no longer hide his feelings and when he was able to get Luna to open up to him my heart went out to both of them. These two are amazing together. Too see Luna open up and realize that there are good guys out there that will protect and love her and not hurt her was heartwarming.

I have fallen hard for the entire Deranged Ink family.  I was so happy when Dax found Bre in book 1 and now hearing Luna and Oliver’s story. I do like that we got to see a little more of Dax and Bree in this one. They all have truly made their own family. They may not be blood related but they all picked one another and stand by each other through anything. I cannot wait to hear the stories of the other guys of Deranged Ink.

“Damn Luna,” Zac whistles when I sit down and I notice Oliver offers him a dirty look. “Who knew you had a killer set of legs under all those jeans.”

“That dress makes your ass go pow,” Jace adds, and before I get the chance to say anything Oliver smacks him on the back of the head. “What the hell is up your ass Olly?”

That’s when I notice the frown line between Oliver’s scrunched up eyes. “Enough with the comments.”

“Why, because they can’t tell me I look good?”

His gaze lands on me and we hold each other’s stare for a few seconds.

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.

#WOTR24 #Review – Kickstart My Heart (Burgers and Brew Crue) Book 1 – By: Lacey Black


Walker

There’s nothing better than a packed house on a Saturday night, and co-owning the hottest restaurant and bar in town with my best friends, isn’t so bad either. We put everything into Burgers and Brew. My job is to keep the alcohol moving and the patrons coming back for more. I won’t let anyone break my focus.

That was until I saw her.

As much as I try, I can’t fight it. Mallory makes me crave a future I never wanted for my own.

Now, I want it all.

Mallory

When I started my new job at a local specialty burger restaurant, I wasn’t expecting to find a tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome distraction in the form of Walker Meyer. He’s one of the owners, which means hands off. Only problem, it’s a lot easier said than done.

Especially when he’s so good with my daughter.

I try to keep him at a distance, but he’s insistent, slowly breaking down every one of my walls. He’s fighting to convince me I can trust him with not only my heart, but my daughter’s too.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Melinda

Mallory is trying to start her and her daughter, Lizzie, life over with a new start in a new town.  Not having much she is trying to make ends meet as a single mom. Mallory lands her the day shift at the local burger restaurant, Burgers and Brew. She collides with, Walker one of the owners and sparks start to fly. But no way can she let another man into her or her daughter’s life.

Walker is happy with his life owning and working at the bar and being single.  He does not date and has one rule never date any of the people at his bar including staff.  He meets his ladies in the ice cream aisle of the grocery store.  That is until the new waitress, Mallory, begins working at Burgers and Brew. Mallory and her daughter, Lizzie, stole a piece of his heart and has him breaking his own rules.

I absolutely loved this story. Not only did Mallory, Lizzie, and Walker steal my heart but so did Walkers family and business partners.  I so want to know more about each of them.  Not only did Mallory and Lizzie make their way into Walker’s heart but they snuck into everyone of Walker’s family and friends’ heart too. Walker was so patient with Mallory and the way he doted over Lizzie was heartwarming. The way Walker gets jealous when other guys, including his partners, talk to Mallory is hilarious. I loved that by the end of the book everyone has a nickname, well ok a shortened version of their own name. After reading this and getting little glimpses of the guys I cannot wait to read more of this series.

A few of my favorite lines:

I’ve never had a man look at me the way Walker does, with such raw yearning and lust.  ~Mallory

I like the idea of having them at my house. It’s nothing special, but maybe that’s not what makes a house a home anyway. Maybe it’s not the walls or the numbers of bedrooms or the amount of living space.
Perhaps it’s the people you invite inside.  ~ Walker

No, I can’t say I’m in love with Mallory, but I’ll agree I’m intrigued and enjoying my time with her, and if that leads to something more, then so be it.
I’m not afraid of taking the next stop, whatever that is.
I’m afraid of the fall.  ~Walker

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.

#WOTR24 #Review – Simon and Trenton (An Ariel Kimber Novel Book 10)


Trenton and Simon are brothers by blood but their connection goes a whole lot deeper than just that. They grew up knowing that they’d spend their lives searching for that one special female witch it was their job to protect. Female witches were rare and they never thought they’d actually find her. But find her they did. And while protecting her they both fell in love with her. She fell in love with them right back. The problem was, she’s a stubborn little witch who’s too afraid to face her feelings head on and embrace them. She’ll run head first into danger, but face her feelings for the brothers? No way, she’s ready to run like a scared little girl. Can the brothers convince Ariel Kimber to take a chance on them or will they have to forever remain on the sidelines, protecting but never touching, what they rightfully consider to be theirs?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

Simon and Trenton are Ariel’s body guards. Always in the background watching over her. They have a protective bond with her but they are also falling hard for her. They are given the chance to bond with her when Quinton has them go with her to investigate a piece of her past. When things go crazy for her they call in her dad.

I enjoyed that this was a book entirely about Trenton, Simon and Ariel. Don’t get me wrong I love all of Ariel’s guys but these three needed this time. I also like that they called in Rain because a girl can always use her dad when things go sideways. Trenton and Simon are so connected to her they know what she needs and who is the best to help her through certain situations.

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

#WOTR24 #Review – A Mountain to Climb (Rebel Vipers MC #0.5) – By: Jessa Aarons

Lana

My life has fallen apart, so I’m trying to find my sister, starting with the last place she said she was. What I find there isn’t what I was expecting – the Rebel Vipers MC clubhouse.

The hot as hell man who opens the door is none other than my sister’s baby daddy. Oh, and if I forgot to mention, she’s not here anymore. What the heck?

It doesn’t take long for our attraction to surface, but I’m not so sure that us being together is the right thing. What about my nephew, Connor?

Mountain

I almost slammed the door in her face. She said she was Roxy’s sister and I panicked. But the more I get to know her, I realize she’s nothing like her venomous sister. That’s when I start falling.

How do I convince this woman that staying in the clubhouse is the right thing for her? For us? I have some walls to knock down, starting with her being afraid that my son will hate her forever. He’s ten years old and needs a woman in his life.

All is going well until I almost lose it all. Is this the end for me, or will my blue-eyed beauty keep me grounded?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I met this author at Rocking Readers and I had to pick up this book. I’m so glad I did it was a quick read and great intro to the club to see how it got its start.
Mountain A/K/A Jethro is the president of Rebel Vipers CM and a single dad. His son’s mom left when Conner was little.
When Lana came looking for her sister all she found was the president of Rebel Vipers. When she knocked on the door, he tried to slam the door in her face. Lana would have none of that and told Mountain the same.
I loved this insta-love quick read. Blue had just the right amount of sass to keep Mountain on his toes. Not only could she keep him in line but also his son Conner. I liked seeing the connection Conner and Blue have. She was so patient with him when they met and he was up in a tree.
Great start to a series. It pulled me in and I immediately purchased Whiskey. I mean really, I had to find out what Conner grew up to be and how did he get the name Whiskey.

Jessa Aarons was born and raised in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin. She has had her nose buried in books for as long as she can remember. Her love of romance began when she “borrowed” her mom’s paperback Harlequin novels.
After experiencing a life changing health issue, she had to leave the working world and dove back into books to help heal her soul. She would read anything that told a love story but still had grit and drama. Then she became a beta reader and personal assistant to another author.
Jessa is the boss of her husband and their castle. He really is her prince. Thanks to his encouragement, Jessa started putting pen to paper and creating new imaginary worlds. She spends her free time reading, crafting, and cheering on her hometown football team

#NewRelease – Pine River by: Tijan

Pine River by Tijan is now live!

​​Pine River was supposed to be a new start for me.

And it was, especially attending school with my three overprotective cousins, who were the triplets at the top of the social hierarchy.
Except they weren’t alone there, and the first day when I came to school, I saw him.
 
Scout Raiden.
Tall. Lean. Tattooed. Mesmerizing.
He was a golden god with dark and piercing eyes—looking like he wanted to eat me up.
 
The feeling was mutual, and that was a problem.
It was lust-want-must have-loathing-hate all at once. I was affected.
And I couldn’t have that. No way.
Not after what I’d just left in Cedra Valley.
 
I didn’t care how much money his uncle had.
I didn’t care that it seemed every girl wanted him.
I didn’t care about his reputation as an up-and-coming fighter.
Or the promise of how those hands would make me feel.
 
What I did care about was staying as far away from Scout as possible.
Because the promise of his presence, the heat that was going to turn the light back on in my world wasn’t a promise at all.
It was a threat.
 
I wasn’t going to survive Scout Raiden.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

When JM sends a book and says it’s something new want to read it.  UM yes is always the answer. I have to say she did a great job on writing a mafia novella.

Ginny was the only daughter in a long line of son’s in the mafia family. Her dad was the only one that wanted her. He taught her how to survive and protect herself. He also made sure she was protected and looked after by his best friend Arlo. When Ginny’s world goes spiraling around her Arlo is there to help clean up and keep her safe. Although she ends up saving him also.

This was a quick read. Although I wish there was more because I enjoyed the sass that Ginny gave to Arlo. I also loved how much Arlo loved her and even though he was there to protect her he allowed her to make mistakes. Arlo was always there when she needed him most.  They are the perfect couple and would love to know more about them.

J.M. Walker, a Canadian author, is an Amazon bestseller who also 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.

#Review – Wolf King: A Dark Mafia Shifter/Rejected Mate Romance (Wolfs of New York book #1) – By: Bella Jacobs

He’s also my only hope.

As a shifter from the wrong side of the tracks who’s just been rejected by my abusive fated mate, I don’t have a lot of options in this city.

I have no choice but to make a deal with the devil.

But that doesn’t mean I’m powerless. I have an ace up my sleeve, a bargaining chip Maxim can’t resist. He wants revenge on my pack leaders for poisoning his father, and I hold the key to his enemy’s destruction.

In exchange for one month of protection from my ex and his friends, I promise to give Maxim what he wants—me.

I expect honoring the bargain to be pure hell. I don’t expect to ignite every time we touch or to develop a soft spot for this wounded wolf. His blood calls to mine, and I’m starting to think this wicked king may have a heart after all.

But is there room in his world for love? Or am I destined to become a pawn in his dark game?

*This is book one in a quartet. It ends in a cliffhanger.*

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Melinda

Another New to me author.  I purchased this book on amazon. Who can pass up shifter mobster. The description of the book had me hooked. This is book one of four and be prepared it does end on a cliffhanger.

Willows fate has been decided she was mated to an evil alpha. Not accepting this as her fate she runs right into the arms of the alpha of their enemy. She makes a deal with Maxim to buy her some time.

Maxim I’m not sure of but when he starts to open up and show Willow another side of him, I am head over heals for him. The chemistry between Willow and Maxim is explosive. Maxim knows she is hiding something and is going to find out. Can Willow handle everything that is going to come her way. So far she has lost everything, her sister, and her parents.

I enjoy the friendship that Willow and Maxim sister have. With what is coming Willows way I’m not sure she will have anything but the end. I want to know what will happen next with Willow and Maxim. To be honest I also want to know more about Maxim’s sister.

Bella Jacobs loves pulse-pounding action, fantasy, and supernaturally high stakes, mixed with swoon-worthy romance and unforgettable heroes.

She adores trips to the dark side and can’t wait to take you on her next adventure.
