#REVIEW – Back River Quiver by Alexa Riley and Jessa Kane

Morgan is just looking to have a fun spring break until her workaholic mom brings along her new boyfriend. But when she ditches the two of them she ends up lost in a swamp, ankle deep in mud, and facing down a gator the size of Godzilla.

Rixen has been praying for God to send him his angel, his rightful mate who will live with him in the swamp and bear his children. When he finds the strawberry-blonde beauty before him in danger, he doesn’t hesitate to save her. Then claim his reward.

Warning: Okay, so, um, this is amazing terrible. This is so over the top, it’s on top of over the top. This book is on the level of ridiculous that surpasses all our stunts before this. You know what happens when we team up with Jessa Kane…but this is hands down the best/worst we’ve ever done. And we’re so proud we could wrestle a gator. Spoiler: There’s a lot of animal wrestling ahead. Grab your overalls and bug spray, we’re going in the bayou.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Um…okay…wow. I didn’t think it was possible but this is surely this duo’s hottest book to date.

Rixen is something else. He’s all male. Animal. Beast. Powerful. And pure deliciousness.

Morgan goes on vacation. Car breaks down. She starts walking through the bayou and of course gets lots. Rixen saves the day and holy crap…I’m still reeling over this.

This story is short, over the top and like I mean, not their usual OTT ways but this is over the top to the extreme. And it was amazing. Rixen is my favourite male of these authors and I would not oppose to them writing and more and more of this couple or men like him.

I now need a smoke.

#REVIEW – Baby Fever (A Real Man, #3) by Jenika Snow

He’s done being the bad boy … he’s ready to be a father.

DEX

I’ve never seen myself settling down. But then life, reality, hell, my biological clock slapped me right across the face. I knew what I wanted.

A baby.

At thirty-nine I was having a severe case of baby fever, and that meant convincing the one woman I’ve always wanted but knew was too good for me, to be mine and be the mother of my child.

EVA

I’ve always wanted Dex. He’s all raw power and cut muscle. He’s the epitome of what a real man is.
He throws me a curve ball and says he wants me not only as his woman … but the mother of his child.

I’ll be honest; it’s what I’ve always wanted.

DEX

Eva deserves better than me, but I’m too selfish, and I want her too badly to back away. Nothing will stop me from making her mine … and putting my baby inside her.

Warning: This book is short and right to the point—like the kind of story that gives you whiplash. Of course it’s unbelievable, dirty in the good kind of way, and is filled with insta-everything. If you want some baby making goodness, you make enjoy this.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Dex is on a mission and his best friend’s little sister is it. Dex is ready to settle down but he only has one woman in mind. Even though she’s much younger than him, age is only a number in his mind.

Eva has always had a thing for her older brother’s best friend but never thought the feeling was mutual until Dex finally has enough.

Sparks fly. Passion ignites.

If you love insta-love, over the top story lines like I do, you will love this series.

#REVIEW – Virgin (A Real Man, 2) by Jenika Snow

*Each book in the A Real Man series can be read on its own.*

She’s the only one he’ll ever want.
He is the first boy she fell in love with.
Quinn
I met Isabel when I was ten.
I fell in love with her before I even knew what that meant.
I knew from the moment I saw her she was it for me. No one else compared to her, and I’d do anything to make her mine. But I was afraid of losing the friendship we have, so I’ve kept my mouth shut.
But she’s leaving me, and I know I can’t keep how I feel inside any longer.
Saving myself for the girl I love isn’t a hardship, but it’s something I’m proud of. When it comes to Isabel, giving her my virginity, and making her see we belong together, is all that matters.
Isabel
Quinn is like the other half of my soul, the one person I can talk to about anything. He has the bad boy thing going on but is also respectful as much as he is a rebel.
He is the first and only boy I will ever love.
Being forced to move across the country, and leave him behind, is like leaving a piece of myself in the process. But telling Quinn I am madly in love with him could put a strain on our friendship. I don’t know if that’s something I could handle or risk.
Quinn
Nothing can keep me from Isabel. She is it for me, and I mean that in every conceivable way. Nothing can keep me from her. I hope she’s ready because there isn’t anything or anyone that will stop me from having her as mine.

Warning: This story is short, dirty story filled with a possessive virgin hero who wants his heroine to be his one and only. It’s drama free, and has insta-everything going on, so be prepared to have an overload of sugary virgin goodness.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

This book is super sweet. Hot of course but sweet just the same.

Quinn and Isabel are best friends. Have been since they were ten and a boy was picking on Isabel and Quinn saved the day.

Fast forward several years later and Isabel has to move away with her family much to Quinn’s dismay.

They fight to be together even though they’re scared that the other doesn’t feel the same way.

Once Quinn has her, he becomes possessive and Isabel is no longer the shy girl he thought she was.

This story is short but so freaking sweet. I loved it. And it’s definitely yummy.

#REVIEW – Lumberjack (A Real Man, 1) by Jenika Snow

He hasn’t been with a woman in five years.

She hasn’t been with a real man … until now.

VIVIAN

I’ve had enough of the crap that goes along with living in the city. So, I packed for a weeklong vacation in the mountains. Isolation in a cabin for the next seven days sounds like a good way to recoup and get my life back in order. After getting lost while hiking, I stumble upon a cabin that has me questioning whether to ask for help, or if I should brave staying the night in the woods.

JAKE

I left everything behind years ago after the woman I was with betrayed me. Now I work as a lumberjack and live my life as a recluse. Being celibate for the last five years says a lot about my self-control, but I’m a man and have needs, and not giving into what I really want is hard as hell. But I can’t let myself get close to anyone, not even for a few hours. Getting close is how I got screwed over before.

As soon as I see Vivian, I know I have to have her. It’s been forever since I’ve had a woman. Because of a storm rolling in, she’ll have to stay with me overnight. We could do a lot of filthy things in that time. I pride myself on my control, but when it comes to Vivian, I don’t know if I can keep my hands to myself.

I know I can’t.

I have needs, and it’s clear Vivian’s in need of a real man to help her unwind. I can certainly help her in that department.

Warning: If you’re looking for a sappy, pull-your-heartstring kind of book … this isn’t it. If you want a short and dirty story featuring an all-around alpha hero who hasn’t had a woman in years, and a heroine who’ll find out what it’s like to be with a real man … this might be for you.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I’ve been obsessed with these super short readers and that are insanely hot and OTT (over the top). Well this book is no different. I’ll definitely be binging the rest of this series.

We have Jake who moved from the city five years ago and has been a lumberjack ever since. He had his heart ripped out and needed to get away. Well living in the woods did him some good. Built. Rough. And a lumberjack. Who knew they could be so yummy.

Vivian needed to get away. She packed up her bags and took a vacation in the woods. After deciding to go for a walk, she gets lost and good thing she does.

The chemistry between the two characters is hot and intense. If you love insta-love type books, this one is for you.

★Excerpt★


Prologue

Brett

Our world ended when she came into our lives. No control. No power. Just heartbreak and unwanted submission. We were forced to our knees at the sight of her. The words falling from her lips were like nails digging at our soul because we knew there was no way out of this.

It wasn’t her fault. None of it was. She was a lowly pawn in this fucked up world we called life. There was nothing any of us could do but wait.

Ever since I was a small boy, I had made it my mission to be in control of everything around me. My career. Women. Sex. Money. Alcohol. I strived to be an asshole so no one could get into my heart.

And then she appeared.

Short. Blonde, curly hair. Deep blue eyes that looked into my very soul and knew my secrets before I ever told her.

Evvie Neal was my one, my only.

I tried so hard to be in control when really, she was the Master and I was the ever-willing slave. She captured my heart, reached inside my chest and brought it back to life just by the sound of her laugh.

But as soon as we were happy, as soon as we let our guard down, the foundation of our love cracked.

We worked damn hard for it and I would do everything in my power to build up the walls of our love and make her happy again.

Even if it meant leaving.

For good.

★Synopsis★

It started without trust. Passion. Lust. An all-consuming need; that was all we had in the beginning.

Lies. Betrayal. Deceit. We moved past it all and fell in love anyway.

Over ten years later, with a family of our own, our little world was perfect. Happy.

But then that happiness faded away when she came into our lives.

No control. No power. Just heartbreak and unwanted submission.

We were forced to our knees at the sight of her. The words falling from her lips were like nails digging at our soul because we knew.

We would have to go through hell to get out of this.

And even then, I wasn’t sure if it would be enough.

#REVIEW – Taking What’s Hers (Forced Submission #3) by Alexa Riley

Taking What’s Mine 

Alone at night in the middle of nowhere. The town sheriff pulls me over. I should be safe.

I’m not.

Nothing could have prepared me for what he had planned. And my darkest desires should have remained a secret. But it seems he knows everything about me.

I’m his now, and only I will do.

Taking What’s Ours 

You can’t tease two alpha men like Hudson and Ridge and not expect consequences, not when you’ve become their every obsession.

They have a target…but their one obstacle has long legs, thick curves, and a mouth made for sin.

They do everything together, and Charlotte is no exception. She tempted them…and now they’ve come to collect. Together.

Can they take what they want and still stick to the plan? Five feet, seven inches of lush addiction says no.

Taking What’s Hers 

We’ve all been that girl.

Maybe you did a little social media stalking to check him out. Maybe you just drove by his house to see if he was home. Maybe you took it a step further and followed him once or twice.

We’ve all gone a little crazy over a guy before.

I went a little crazy. That’s how Archer Ware ended up tied to the bed. I should probably feel bad about it, and maybe once I get what I want, I will. But right now he’s mine, and that’s all I care about.

This isn’t the forced submission story you’re used to. Valentina will stop at nothing to have the man she wants, and Archer can only take what she gives.

Warning: Obsession beyond control. These books contain situations involving forced submission and dubious consent. Nothing can stop them from having what they feel is theirs. These themes are triggers for some, but sweet candy for others. If you’re willing to hold off judgement until the last page, the ending is worth it, I promise.

BONUS: Bundle includes never before seen epilogues for all three stories & chapter 1 of TAKING WHAT’S HIS! 

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Well this story didn’t go where I thought it would. Have you ever been obsessed with someone to the point you’d tie them to your bed? No? Neither have I. Unless you’re Valentina of course. She’s crazy in love with Archer and she feels the only way she can get him to be with her forever is if she tied him to his bed and…well, you’ll just have to read the story to find out cause like I said, it definitely took me for a loop.

I love these little forced submission stories. I have fun figuring out the twists. I’m usually wrong but it’s still worth a shot.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Another one to melt your kindles!

These little stories in this series are super short but super hot. They are insanely taboo but oh so good. With the twists and turns of each book, it leaves you wondering just how the hero or heroes is going to get the girl and just what they do to get them.

Hudson and Ridge are no exception when it comes to Charlotte. Both inmates and both have a thing for the good doctor. Just what will they do to get her to notice them? Read to find out! I really liked this one.

#REVIEW – Their Stepsister by Alexa Riley

Sweet, innocent, virginal Sarah had never once stopped thinking about her stepbrothers since she left for college. Identical in looks but opposites in personality, the twins were everything Sarah wanted in a lover.

Now that sexy little Sarah was home for good, twins Luke and Logan could no longer fight the pull and keep away from her. She’d grown into a beautiful young woman. She had curves that made their mouths water and a body made for two men. Evidently years in the Marines and away from Sarah hadn’t curbed their lust or obsession.

It was time for Luke and Logan to make a move. It was time for Sarah to learn who she belonged to. She was theirs – heart, body and soul.

Warning! Only for readers above 18, this book contains insta-love, taboo romance, menage and double penetration at its dirtiest. Proceed with caution.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

One thing I love about the books by AR that I’ve read so far is that women are curvy or short or both. They’re not your picture perfect model. They’re real.

So this little story, we meet Logan, Luke and Sarah. Luke and Logan have been in love with Sarah for years and vice versa. But of course, they all deny their feelings for each other until one delicious night and everything…well…combusts.

AR did it again with another hot little number. I can’t get enough of these ladies words. I think their stories about two people were hot. But three? Wow.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

So as I was reading this, I was thinking okay, I can get past the dub-con. It’s been awhile since I’ve read a dubious consent type book so I was a little concerned for the heroine. But then that ending. BAM! All was right in the world.

Be warned, there may be triggers but if you keep reading, all is not as it seems. I loved it and I totally fist pumped the air when a certain something came to light.
