I purchased this book from Free off Amazon May 2020.

Oh AJ!!  I love your books!!  I am so glad I saw this book and grabbed it the other day when it was a freebie off Amazon.  This is a sweet novella retelling of Beauty and the Beast.  I loved the twist of the story that Belle was actually the beast because she was pushing the “Prince” Viktor to get better.  But in actuality Vik was the beast due to his grumpy disposition.

The story begins and we see a uber crabby Vik not wanting anyone around.  He has lost his leg and his momma.  Seems he is going to hide away then deal with the pitying stares of people he knows.  His aunt informs him she has hired a PT to come and help him with his new prosthetic.  He is none to thrilled and the way he answered the door pretty much sets the tone for Belle and Vik.  LOL

The chemistry between Vik and Belle is off the charts immediately.  They are both drawn to the firm yet caring souls of the other.  She is like DUDE HE IS A CLIENT.  He is saying NO HOT CHICK WOULD WANT THIS MESS!!  We see the fun flirty banter and the respect they both form for the other.

When there is a miscommunication and then angry word, both are left wounded.  When he see Vik take that step forward in hopes of more with Belle, I was so excited.

The story is a sweet novella, but I will say it wasn’t an insta-love because there was a lot of banter and chemistry to fill the story.  However, seeing them both fall head over heals for the other when they finally confide their true feelings was a sweet read.  The epilogue made ma laugh like all AJ’s books do!!

AJ Renee is the author behind the St. Fleur series, Love in Scrubs series, Beauty Unmasked, Winter’s Surprise, Unlucky in Love, Surviving Paris, and Finding Love at the Falls…. She’s a military wife and mother to three young girls. She graduated from the University of Central Florida with her Masters of Science in Criminal Justice and a Bachelors of Science in Psychology while working at the library.

She loves to write steamy romance with suspense and a happily ever after. When she isn’t writing or interacting with her readers, you can find her spending time with her family or reading. AJ enjoys traveling, researching family history, and all things New Orleans.

Lia has known she was different since the age of five when her father taught her the skills of her ancestors. His stories of heroic exploits have fueled her fantasies for years. Little did she know that her expertise would be called upon when two cities, two triads, go to war. Will it be a step too far to think she can hide who she really is?
Jaxon has known his career path since he was a little boy when his father promised his only son to the leader of the Yu Shi triad.

What is the young boy hiding from him?

All I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time, I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.
I’m an avid reader who turned to writing to combat my depression and anxiety. I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality.
I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth, my heroines demure but with spunk, and my books full of dramatic suspense.

#WOTR20 #NewRelease – Winter’s Arrow, Sinister Fairy Tales Collection by Lexi C. Foss

Title: Winter’s Arrow
Collection: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Lexi C. Foss
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retrelling
Release Date: May 14, 2020
True love is a myth.
A trick.
A way to subdue the heroine and take everything from her.
Winter Snow
My “true love” conspired with my stepmother to have me killed and stole my throne.
But they failed.
I’ve been in hiding and refining my vengeance. I’m no longer the damsel they mistook me for once upon a time. I’m coming for them. And my kingdom, too.
Who needs dwarves when you have wolves?
Who needs blades when you have arrows?
My name used to be Snow. Now they call me the Winter’s Arrow. Because I’m here to destroy them all.
Kazek Flor
I’m not a prince but an Alpha. And I take what I want, when I want it. So when I found an Omega princess dying in the woods, I took her and made her mine.
I’ll train her. Embolden her. Help her seek the vengeance she is owed. Then, together, we’ll take down Winter Sector and the wicked Queen of Mirrors.
Run fast, little wolves.
Your former princess is about to rise with me by her side.
And we’re thirsting for your blood.

“Help,” I begged. “Need… help.” Kazek frowned at me. “You’re going into estrus, Snow. I’m planning to help you.” I shook my head, a whine catching in my throat. He didn’t understand. “No knot.” I couldn’t accept it. This had to be part of Vanessa’s plan, to make an Alpha think he could fuck me fully. She’d planned to entice Enrique with this spell, to force him to knot me. That was what she’d meant by having methods to induce the sensations. She’d cast some wicked enchantment that convinced Alphas I could handle them in a rut. Tears collected in my eyes. I’d escaped her clutches, only to fall into the hands of someone so much worse—an Alpha driven by need. She’d won. After all that… she’d still won. I crumpled against him, sobbing beneath the crushing emotions of betrayal and defeat. And worse, arousal. Because I wanted him.

USA Today Bestselling Author Lexi C. Foss loves to play in dark worlds, especially the ones that bite. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and their furry children. When not writing, she’s busy crossing items off her travel bucket list, or chasing eclipses around the globe. She’s quirky, consumes way too much coffee, and loves to swim.

#NewRelease #Dark #SinisterFairyTales – Abducted by K.I. Lynn

Abducted

Releasing as part of the 2019 Sinister Fairy Tales Collection!

The mafia never lets you go.
I thought I was safe, free, but I never expected to find myself locked in a cage.
I’m in his territory. His prison.
The beast.
A fate worse than death awaits me if I can’t get away, so when the opportunity of salvation presents itself I grab it, even if I’m unsure if I can trust the hand I’m holding.
The only way out is through, exposing secrets and spilling blood.
Things aren’t how they appear. Nobody is what they seem.
Not even me.

Found on Authors GoodReads Account

The chains chafed my wrists, making me wish I was still in my cage. Though it lacked privacy at least I had a bed and wasn’t restrained with my arms above my head. But I was in Domenico’s domain. The small bedroom like area created from a previous office. There was a mattress with a blanket and a lamp, but those were the only creature comforts. The rest of the room retained both the look and smell of the rest of the decaying structure.
With no way to tell time, I wasn’t sure how long I’d been there. All I knew was that I was tired. Being held against my will caused spikes in my adrenaline, and the crash left me drained. They had lessened over the weeks, but there was an undercurrent of strife going on, and I feared what would happen if things got out of control.
I stared at the bed, wishing I was on it. All that did was cause the memories of him inside me to come crashing down. The absolute owning of my body for him and him alone. The way he made me come undone.
Feelings that I shouldn’t have with his touch, but I did.
Feelings I drowned in as he consumed me.
I am Domenico’s…for now.
And that was the thought that always sent questions spiraling out of control and a spike of fear to run through me.
I was just a caged bird. A pet awaiting a sentence bound to be more grim than any fairy tale horror.

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

WHAT!!!  YES!!  This book is hawt and sexy and hella good reads.

This book is what I love best about KI….sexy chemistry and amazing twists.

The fair tale for this book is Beauty and the Beast and it is a perfect reincarnation of the story.  Ari and Dom are so yummy to read.

Essentially your girl Ella/Ari is kidnapped by the cappo names Domenico.  His scarred face is what gives him the nickname the Beast or La Biesta. He is a take now, ask questions later kinda guy.  They two fight this crazy attraction all the while they are dealing with everything around them making them stop to figure things out.

I love this story.  I find I am really enjoying mafia stories more and more.  This story has soooo much happening but the manipulation and betrayals are the best part of the story because we really can feel what the characters are feeling as the story happening.

K.I. Lynn is the USA Today Bestselling Author from The Bend Anthology, Amazon Bestseller Becoming Mrs. Lockwood, 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.

#NewRelease #Dark #FairyTales #TriggerWarnings – Alice in Chains: A Twisted Fairy Tale by Nikki Landis and Crimson Syn

Alice In Chains: A Twisted Wonderland

It’s time to go now, Alice.
Time to dive back into that rabbit hole.
Hurry and finish your tea, Alice.
Then return to where dark things go.

The good doctor thinks he knows it all,
He listens with bated breath.
Pretending his questions are innocent,
Hoping he’s getting you wet.

Don’t cry, Alice.
You chained and broken girl.
You’re not as pure as you were before.
You belong in a twisted world.

You belong in a mad, mad world.
With queens, beasts, and Doms.
In a place where submission is sacred.
Close your eyes, think of the calm.

Remember the blood and pain.
So sweet are the torturous wails.
Succumb to symphonic sighs.
Make him believe your tales.

It’s time to go now, Alice.
You’ve already waited too long.
The ethereal realm you miss so much
Calls you back with its sensual song.

Take the good doctor with you, dear.
Show him where shattered things go.
He’s mad as a loon, but he’ll see soon.
Show him Wonderland. Show him home.

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

First up…WHAT THE EFFFFF!!!!  Ya’ll heed the trigger warning Imma lay at your feet…its crazy and takes you on a dark ride.  Its emotional as EFF so be ready and don’t even tell me you weren’t warned.

I liked the twist of the doctor and Alice.  I liked how messed up it was and how I was like DUDE I am messed up for liking this!! BUT YET I did!!  LOL

It was a little bit slow but I think it needs to be slow so when you are in the thick of it you are like HOW DID I GET HERE!!! Plus HOW CAN WE GET OUT!!!!  Ya know.  It needs to set up slow and make you edgy.  You need the slow burn for the whole cat and mouse of it to start.  Lord when it starts you will a mess of anxiety!!!  I know I was!!

Again, I am going to stress this book is not for everyone!!  We see Alice being physically abuse and drugged plus the emotional abuse is just intense.  So please don’t go into this book unless you are ok with it.  I like some dark books but this was a bit darker then I like to go.  However, I did enjoy it and am kinda worried about my mental status at this time!! LOL

Crimson Syn is a new erotica author. She delves into those hot and heavy stories where her characters are pushed to their sexual limits. Her wicked pen dips into every little niche, even if it’s wrong and kinky. Vanilla, BDSM, BBW and that twisted taboo is what she wants to make you crave.
Her Hellbound Lovers MC series is her first attempt at a bad boy biker series. If you’re looking for sweet and innocent, you’ll find it, but not in that wholesome way you’re used to. No. Miss Syn delivers sex at its best, and the more innocent you are the more her alpha males will attempt to defile you.
Miss Syn is passionate about her family, her friends and her writing. Where she travels is her next setting, and her fantasies and dreams are her inspiration. She writes her alpha males tough and rough, and she expects for her female leads to be independent, bright women with lots of sexy curves.

Nikki Landis is the International Bestselling & Award-Winning Author of over 40 paranormal, reverse harem, MC, & sci-fi romance novels. She’s been addicted to romance and alpha heroes since she used to sneak her mother’s ‘bodice rippers’ as a teen and now writes her own.

#WOTR2020 – #Review – Storybook Academy: The Keeper by Kylie Marcus

Storybook Academy: The Keeper

One Chance. Five Stubborn Prince Charmings. How’s a Girl Supposed to Save the World?

After my grandfather died, he left me one thing: a magical book. Now I’m enrolling at an Academy for fairy tale characters and it’s up to me to put their stories back together.

There are just a couple problems:

1. Last time I read a bedtime story, I was six.
2. It’s not like people are walking around introducing themselves as Prince Charming.
3. And speaking of princes – the princes I do meet aren’t interested in their princesses – but they’re only interested in kissing me!

My grandfather’s letter said the fate of both this world and my own rests on my rewriting the fairy tales. That’s a lot for a seventeen-year-old to deal with let alone throwing in some villains who only want to see me fail.

Happily ever after as we know it, will never be the same.

Disclaimer: This is a Why Choose?/Reverse Harem story where the heroine falls for many heroes and does not pick just one.

BookBub

This is a fun YA, twisted fairytale, reverse harem story. The world as we know it is slowly forgetting about fairytales and we find out that they are fading away. Serina is in a world where using her imagination is forbidden. Her grandfather passes away and leaves her a storybook. Not just a storybook but THE storybook. She finds out that after his passing she has been deemed the next keeper of the Storybook Realm. When she is whisked away to the Storybook Realm she finds herself at the academy. Since all the stories are fading away she has to rewrite them. But in the Storybook Realm she has to rewrite them by getting the fairytales to play out. Unfortunately she has all the princes falling for her. She ends up in the middle of a story and has to find a way to rewrite the character she replaced into another story. Serina is just a teenage girl and has been given a huge job of keeping the fairytales alive and well. Part of the problem is she is loving being at the Academy instead of at home. At the Academy she is treated like she mattered and would be missed if she ever disappeared. She’s having an issue with “not mixing business with pleasure”, haha! Reader beware, this ends with a cliffhanger but by the end of the book I was more aware of the bad guys but trying to figure out who we can trust. I look forward to continuing this series and seeing if the Storybook Realm can be saved.
