On a dirt road in Nevada, a woman lay dying.

In book one of Montana Steel MC: Josh ‘Red’ Luke, Montana Steel MC Nomad, wants to go home. It doesn’t have anything to do with running from something as much as the need to find his place in the world. As a former Army medic, he used his GI bill to become a skilled surgeon, which fills his necessity to help. Together with the training from the military to never leave a man behind, and his soul feels almost whole.

The woman struggles to find her own name and the reason for being brutally beaten and left for dead. However, the memories come in hard, harsh bursts and the struggles to figure who she was, leaves her reeling and landing in the violent MC world where her natural instinct to run come out. One consecration the lack of memory fortified her—was to discover a thing she never gave a chance in the past—love.

When those who caused the hurt find out their target is alive, but under the fog of amnesia, they set out to finish the job. With her life in danger, the safest place is in Red’s arms. He can heal the woman’s body, but can Red convince her there’s room in her heart for him?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the audio book and ebook deal from Amazon.

SO I will admit, I haven’t read an MC book/series in along time.  When the genre blew up, this girl devoured allllll the books but lately I have just passed when offered books.  Well I have recently become obsessed with Michel’s library of books (Hello Two Ink Minimum is amazing!!) and so I was like OK Lets Do IT!!  SO I grabbed the book and started listening…..FRIENDS!!!  YES!!!!  This book was everything I needed in a story.  Yes its an MC but those elements weren’t overpowered in the story??  Does that make sense.  Yes the club is there and club rules are visible but the characters took the story and my heart.

Josh/Red is a nomad and looking to go home because his father has passed away and his mom needed him at the family ranch.  While he is riding, he sees something in the desert and rushes to see who it is.   He can hear the wild animals getting closer, so he is worried.   What he sees hits him in the gut.  He is looking at a battered and essentially dead woman.

Nova/Roadkill thinks she is being lifted to heaven and is stunned when she opens her eyes in a room.  She is surrounded by strangers and these blue eyes that she remembered from when she was dying.  Nova has no idea what happened or even what her name is hence the club name of Roadkill.

The couple have a great natural building of chemistry.  Red wants to help her while also protect her.  The banter and seriousness of her attack forms a bond that neither is ready for and both try to push away.

Red is the first to realize he wants Nova forever but knows she is a mess and is probably not sure what the club life is like since she got some 2nd hand not particularly true information.

The couple go through a lot like moving to Montana to start a Steel MC Charter club, dealing with that past she had hidden away in her mind, solving some crimes against women, and falling in love.

Red is a no-nonsense guy.  He won’t fight his feelings and is doing everything he can for Nova to realize her place is with him.  Nova hasn’t ever had a real family or had people who generally cared for her, so this new “Family” is confusing and scary.  But Nova is a bad ass chick who embraces the title Property.

I am so excited to read the story of the rest of the characters.  I admit Baldy is the one I am more excited for because his character just screamed at me the most but knowing the next book is Cass, I am stoked!!

Narration was ok. Tanner is a good voice but I know Kat Maxwell narrates the rest of the series and she is amazing.

With characters yelling “It’s my turn damn it!!!” She tries to explain to them that alas, she can only type a hundred and twenty words a minute and they will have wait their turn. She knows eventually they find their way out of her head and to her fingertips and she looks forward to sharing them with you.

When Michel can suppress the voices in her head she can be found at a scouting event or cheering for her son in a variety of sports. She would like to thank her family for always being in her corner and especially her husband for supporting her every dream and never letting her give up.

#WOTR22 #TwinsieAngieFavorite #MC #FriendstoLovers – Lil Bit, Book 4 of the Steel MC Montana Charter by Michel Prince and Wren McCabe, Narration by Kat Maxwell

Michel Prince is our attending author.

Lil' Bit (Steel MC Montana Charter #4)

Warning: Adult Audiences 18+. Language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.

In book four of the Steel MC Montana Charter: Bryan “Baldy” Allen doesn’t have the same pedigree as the other founders of the Steel MC Montana Charter. He was named Vice President because of his friendship with Red, the Prez, leaving a part of him feeling as if he’s constantly playing catch-up with the former soldiers.

Weakened by cancer as a child, Baldy gutted out most of his life just to survive. Now thriving as the mechanic for, not only the Steels but those around Turnabout Creek, he finally sees a life ahead of him—there’s only one thing missing—his Lil’ Bit.

Kristy Coe survived a vicious attack that took more than her body—it stole any chance of a future with children. Like hearing the voices of her attackers when there is silence isn’t enough punishment.

Practically a shut-in until Baldy, a man who’d been there after the assault, offers her an opportunity of a job at the garage. Knowing Baldy would never allow anyone to hurt her, she’s able to run the gas pumps and check out customers daily with the security of him being less than a few steps away. Not to mention the yearning she has for the man she has watched from afar.

Scarred inside and out—feeling less than those around them—can Baldy and Lil’ Bit realize everything they’re missing is standing right before them? And will they have the time to figure it out since the Steel MC Montana Charter knows how to make enemies? Enemies that refuse to go away quietly.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this ebook and audio book.

Friends.  I am so confused as to how I feel.  I am so excited to FINALLY read my Baldy’s book but now I am sad because I read my Baldy’s book. Is it wrong I already want a re-read already??  NO?  Ok good because that might be happening this weekend!!  LOL  Sorry Free and Hollywood but you gotta wait.  It’s my Baby daddy we are talking about…Baldy all day every day!

Ok so why Baldy?  I admit Hack almost stole me away in book 3 buuut I hung strong for Brian “Baldy” Allen, the VP of the Steel MC Charter.  His character history was one of overcoming childhood cancer.  He was just such a fun loving guy who never takes anything for granted given the struggles he has had in life.

Lil’ Bit AKA Kristy Coe is the little sister to Cass.  She is BROKEN shell of the wild girl she used to be.  She has been brutally attacked, raped, and dehumanized beyond what most think is repairable.  She is afraid of everyone and everything but slowly starts to emerge out of her shell.  She wants to want more but is scared to death to want more.  Baldy is forcing her out into the world and that is her saving grace.

Baldy sees the little girl he grew up with and is there like a big brother should be.  However, Baldy soon starts to see the strength and amazing WOMAN she is.  He gets all kinda of confused about what is going on.  Kristy has always has a crush on Baldy but fears after he saw her when she was at her worst , he would never want her in THAT way.

Lawd thank god for Lil’ Mama kicking Kristy’s butt into taking a chance and LAWD thank God for Baldy finally taking that chance even though he knows Cass is gonna shit a brick!!  Can’t go against your MC brothers but when your heart is on the line you will do whatever you need to.

The story of what happened to Kristy is pretty horrendous and we get a lot more details in this book. But OMG guys I was screaming at so many points for her. She has found so much strength in this book.  Her strength is coming from her family, her love of Baldy, her new MC Family, and she finally but most importantly she found herself again!!!

The love story in this book….stop it………I am so thrilled with the entire way the story came together.  Kristy and Baldy are truly the perfect half to the others whole.  Hands down fav book of the series so far.

Michel is our attending author.

Preacher Girl (Steel MC Montana Charter #3)

Warning: Mature Adult Audiences 18+. Contains language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.

In book three of Steel MC Montana Charter: Formerly a Navy SEAL, Thomas Creek was used to being single and free. He earned the nickname “Hack” due to his mad computer skills when he joined the Steel MC Montana Charter. Being part of the club allows him the freedom to ride fast and free on his motorcycle, and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Hannah Ence grew up as one of many daughters of a prophet, now being forced into a plural marriage by her father. Posting on the dark web, she prayed for help in escaping her fate. She wasn’t asking for much—a future beyond that of a wife to a man who had a half dozen already.

Steel Montana, though they pledged to be part of a domestic abuse underground, was still working toward building their club. Alerted by Hack of Hannah’s plight, they chose to answer her call. They just didn’t know how important Hannah would be to the club until after she was rescued.

With a rival MC actively attacking the Steels, and Hannah’s sheltered upbringing, Hack worries about the raven-haired angel he saved. Is Hannah strong enough to become a part of his life? Or is her draw to him fleeting, brought on by the fact he makes her feel safe? Because for him, she has become so much more than a job.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this ebook and audio book.

OMG HACK!!!  Friends, I have been on #TeamBaldy since I was introduced to him in book 1 but after this book…uhm…wellll…Baldy might be getting sidelined *Gasp* I know I know!!!!

Thomas AKA Hack is Mr. Few Words and Mr. Always Club Business.  When he sees Hannah’s cry for help on the internet, he jumps to protect her from a marriage to her GREAT UNCLE who is like 70 years old.  EWWWWW

Hannah has grown up in a religious cult. She knew not everything was right but when your father is THE MAN how do you disrespect him??  She gets some help and makes a plea for help online.  When the MC shows up, she is scared as heck because hello they might have killed her family to save her plus…uhm…she is sheltered, and they are FREAKING BIKERS!!!

The attraction to each other is instant in a way.  But maybe its more a mutual respect then attraction initially now that I think about it.  He respects her for leaving everything she knows, and she respects him for his loyalty to friends and family.

As they bond and spend time together you can see their attraction build but he is freaking because she a virgin and 18.  She believes, thanks to her past, she is a demon and will ruin any life she decides to shack up with.

Seeing them explore everything from her desire for MORE in life like school, job. Family, and a college education while he explores the possibility of an Ol’ Lady and family.

I loved loved loved these two.  They were such an odd dynamic and yet they fit together perfectly.  But I admit, after listening to the opening scene/preview for Baldy…..Hack might get kicked to the curb again/  LOL

#Review #AudioBook – Mother Knows Best: A Novel of Suspense by Kira Peikoff

One of POPSUGAR’s Top 15 Medical Thrillers
One of REAL SIMPLE’s 35 Chilling Psychological Thrillers

A mother’s worst nightmare, a chance at redemption, and a deadly secret that haunts a family across the generations—“the psychological thriller everyone will be talking about” (Lisa Scottaline)


There’s only room for one mother in this family.

Claire Abrams’s dreams became a nightmare when she passed on a genetic mutation that killed her little boy. Now she wants a second chance to be a mother, and finds it in Robert Nash, a maverick fertility doctor who works under the radar with Jillian Hendricks, a cunning young scientist bent on making her mark–and seducing her boss.

Claire, Robert, and Jillian work together to create the world’s first baby with three genetic parents–an unprecedented feat that could eliminate inherited disease. But when word of their illegal experiment leaks to the wrong person, Robert escapes into hiding with the now-pregnant Claire, leaving Jillian to serve out a prison sentence that destroys her future.

Ten years later, a spunky girl named Abigail begins to understand that all is not right with the reclusive man and woman she knows as her parents. But the family’s problems are only beginning. Jillian, hardened by a decade of jealousy and loss, has returned–and nothing will stop her from reuniting with the man and daughter who should have been hers.

Past, present, and future converge in this mesmerizing psychological thriller from critically acclaimed author Kira Peikoff.

Um…this book. Wow. What the heck did I just listen to??

So I went in completely blind, which I highly reccomend doing if you can and what a ride it was. I had absolutely NO idea what was going on. I was left feeling confused at times, frustrated and stressed out but man, those were amazing feelings to have while listening to this book.

So Kira Peikoff is a brand new to me author and this will definitely not be my last book of hers that I read/listen to. I enjoyed how detailed this book was. There are things in it that I’m left wondering if they can actually happen or not but I’m no doctor or scientist, so I’ll leave that up to the professionals.

Claire and Ethan have been trying for a baby for a while. They had a son, who unfortunately had a medical condition that ended up taking his life. They decided to try for a second baby but that hadn’t happened yet and they weren’t getting any younger. So a woman desperate to have that baby, would almost do anything to have one. Trust me, from someone who knows how that feels, I’ve been tempted to do some crazy things to have a kid of my own. But that’s a story for another day over lots of alcohol.

Claire ends up going to this fertility doctor and it all becomes crazy from there.

A woman desperate to have another baby.

A scientist desperate to make her way in a world that for the most part, is run by men.

A man who thinks this fertility doctor’s ways are unethical.

And more.

Wow. Just wow. I really enjoyed the twists and turns in this book. I was left yelling at my phone, demanding to know what was going on and I was trying to urge the narrators on to talk faster. I needed to know!

The book is written in 3 different POVs (point of views) and I enjoyed them all but the one, actually got on my nerves part way through the book. If you listen to the audio book of this, you’ll understand why.

Thank you, Kira, for an amazing story and for making me feel things as a reader that doesn’t normally happen.

Oh and if you like a little romance with your suspense, this book has that too.

#Review #AudioBook – One Little Mistake: A Novella by Lucinda Berry (An Audible Original)

From the best-selling author of The Secrets of Us and The Best of Friends comes a novella of deceit, desperation, and how one little mistake can unravel a life.
When overwhelmed stay-at-home mom Alexis finds herself at odds with her husband after she’s charged with a DUI, she is given one chance to get her family back: complete AA and admit her faults. The problem is, she’s never had a drinking problem and has no idea what caused the blackout that led to her arrest. Still, she’s committed to working through the program, if that’s what it takes to be reunited with her two young children. But when she connects with a new friend, Farrah – a confident, successful powerhouse of a woman Alexis can’t help but idolize – she’s empowered to take a closer look at her husband’s role in her downfall. What she finds shocks her to her core, quickly spiraling into something more sinister than she ever imagined. 

I really liked this novella. I don’t usually listen to audio books but my reading has been limited lately, so thought I’d give it a shot. And what better way to do that then by listening to one of my favourite authors? AND it’s an audible original too, which is even cooler.

Alexis is having a hard time of it. She has a young daughter and just gave birth to a son a few months ago. Her husband is no help at all. Which let me tell you, was highly infuriating to read.

Unfortunately for Alexis, she decides to have a glass of wine one day, a little earlier than normal for her, and the next thing she knows, she’s waking up in the drunk tank. Buuut after only having a couple glasses, maybe only 2, she doesn’t remember anything at all. Even though she’s a light weight when it comes to alcohol, she knows that there is no way that she could have blacked out.

The one twist in this book wasn’t overly surprising but the 2nd one, yeah, I couldn’t predict it at all.

It just shows that there are a lot of people out there who take advantage when someone is down on their luck. And poor Alexis fell victim to it.

The book, although short, was a fun afternoon listen. It was entertaining and I can’t wait for more.

Also, as with most novellas, I do wish this one was longer but that’s just me.

This is my first audiobook review and I really liked the narrator. She did a fantastic job and coming from someone who is only starting to get into audiobooks, she held my interest and I wasn’t bored.

Its that time again we closed the door on 2021 and starting 2022.  My 2021 was a little crazy and I didn’t get as much reading in as I would have liked. It is hard to escape into books when things in real life are crashing around you. So instead of giving you my top 5 for June through December I decided to post a few of my favorites that I read this year.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

This was the first audio narration I have heard from Lacy Laurel. She did a good job changing up the different voices from women to men. The females voices were a bit similar but through the conversation you could tell who was who.

This is a short novella I downloaded after finishing a super duper long…16 hour…..audio story. I needed just a quick in and out love story. This is a best friends to lovers story/2nd Chance Romance Story.

Beth and Bryce were besties in college who were both feeling the other but never crossed that line. When Bryce was leaving for Harvard there was some jealousy issues that got in the way of their possible “love connection” and they parted ways. Bryce was never really sure what happened to Beth and Beth was all in her feelings. Now I admit I have a few questions about the story. They are friends so her being angry that he was hooking up with someone was kinda a stretch for me. But Bryce tells the “hook up” two different ways so I was confused. First he says the girl asked for help and he went to her room. She came on to him and he declines…then he says they were making out and we went to have sex but sees Beth’s picture and declines said offer. So I think that would have been caught with beta readers and ARC readers to be better flushed out.
All in all the story was them finding each other again and admitting how they felt about each other in the past and figuring out what to do with the time they have now. I think this was a good story and enjoyable read. It could have been flushed out a bit more but I did enjoy listening when I was getting ready and driving to work.

CJ Warrant is a lover, a hater and sometimes a fighter for all she’s passionate about. She can’t exist without coffee, chocolate and a damn story brewing in her head. She was born an overseas Army brat, in a Korean Italian household but settled in the states at the ripe old age of five.
With a long career in the beauty industry, a wonderful marriage to a great man and three kids nearly all grown, her view of life is as such. Life is a journey; both good and bad, light and dark, but she takes it all in and learns from every experience life has to offer. She takes those crazy moments, stirs in the dark and brings her passion for words to life.

Pit Perfect Murder (A Barkside of the Moon Cozy Mystery Book 1) by [Renee George]

Pit Bulls are Sweet . . . and that’s no mystery!
(previously published as Pit Perfect in 2016)

When cougar-shifter Lily Mason moves to Moonrise, Missouri, she wishes for only three things from the town and its human population. . . to find a job, to find a place to live, and to live as a human, not a therianthrope.

Lily gets more than she bargains for when a rescue pit bull named Smooshie rescues her from an oncoming car, and it’s love at first sight. Thanks to Smooshie, Lily’s first two wishes are granted by Parker Knowles, the owner of the Pit Bull Rescue center, who offers her a job at the shelter and the room over his garage for rent.

Lily’s new life as an integrator is threatened when Smooshie finds Katherine Kapersky, the local church choir leader and head of the town council, dead in the field behind the rescue center. Unfortunately, there are more suspects than mourners for the elderly town leader. Can Lily keep her less-than-human status under wraps? Or will the killer, who has pulled off a nearly Pit Perfect murder, expose her to keep Lily and her dog from digging up the truth?

Fall in love with Lily Mason, the shifter who only wants to live as a human, and her pit bull Smooshie, a rescue dog who in the end may be the one doing the rescuing!

Pit Perfect Murder, Book 1 of the Barkside of the Moon Mysteries from USA Today bestselling paranormal cozy mystery author Renee George, is an exciting tale of mystery and suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat. A clean read full of humor and small town charm.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the audio book with my credits.

Hello Pittie momma so of course I had to grab it.  Then when I saw the main character Lily is a shifter….uhm paranormal are my jam so yessssss score score score!!

I will admit I am not a giant mystery reader but I loved the format and the comedy of the story, so it hit me in the right spot.

Lily has been surrounded by sadness her whole life.  She leaves home to find a long-lost uncle she never knew existed.  Uncle/Cousin Buzz wasn’t so keen on keeping his niece/cousin in town buuut they start to bond.  If you wanna know the uncle/cousin and niece/cousin story line I guess you need to read the story.

Lily is wondering through town when a pit bull runs up and adopts her as her person.  Lily also meets her new friend, Smooshies, owner and smitten is a word you could use.  Parker is kind and gentle plus kinda hot for a human so when he is accused of murder……Lily can’t handle it and is off to use her paranormal powers to solve the case.  No offense but she really was an awful person in live…old Katherine. *Growls*

I really enjoyed the who-done-it and getting to meet the characters in the town.  I personally can’t wait to see Buzz settle down, but I really want to see Parker and Lily maybe *wiggles eyes* admit some feelings for one another.  But Parker’s dad was also the best ever.  Honestly other then the old bitty who died, I loved the town.  LOL

#Review #Audio – Bitter Edge, Cocky Hero Club Novel by Adriana Rose, Narration by Morae Brehon and Gregory Salinas

Bitter Edge (Cocky Hero Club)

He was sent to put my body and dreams back together. Were they things I even wanted anymore?
Spencer Broten was a pain in my backside from the moment we met.
I was conned into going on a road trip with him.
Within hours, I realized he wasn’t just my trainer. He was much more.
This unnamed, unplanned winding road turned into us getting to know each other as we truly were.
Two broken bodies, two broken souls finding out we were more the same than different.
The line between hate and love is a bitter edge.
Outside or inside.
Where will we land?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book and audio when I met the author at a book signing.

Narration was great.  I loved Gregory’s Australia accent.  Morea did a great job trying to nail it as well.  Both brought a lot of li

First of all, I gotta say this book reminded me of the movie “The Cutting Edge”.  Do you remember that flick about the ice princess figure skater and the washed-up hockey player?  This book reminded me so much of that movie!!  I loved the movie, so I was here for the books as well.

Cierra and Spencer are both broken souls.  Spencer is broke, because he gave up everything including love to chase his dream to stay in professional hockey.  The dream was smashed and now he is trying to figure his life out when a job opportunity lands in front of him.

Cierra is a broken skater who doesn’t even know if she even loves this sport anymore.  She is tired of not making any decisions about her life for herself. She is tired of everyone telling her what to do and when to do it.  She rebels and sure as hell isn’t going to listen to this NEW IDIOT tell her what to do.

Cierra and Spencer take a roadtrip and everything changes in an instant.  They decide to live life and see what can happen.  They both know that this will change everything…either for the better or the worse.

I enjoyed the couple and seeing them start to form an attraction and work through all their issues.  This book was my first read by this author, but I hope not my last

Author and hopeless romantic, Ariana Rose, dabbles in all forms of contemporary romance. All her novels do have one thing in common. Her heroes and heroines are as passionate about life and love as they are about each other.

A mother of two, she hails from the Midwest. Born and raised in the Minneapolis area, she’s always been a storyteller and known to have a flair for the dramatic. Her daughter is just across the border attending college and is a go to for all things web design. Her son is a busy middle schooler who loves all things penguins, science, gaming, cars and the weather. He’s been known to hang in many Storm Chaser marathons with Mom. Ariana’s fur baby (a beagle/lab) can be found curled next to her while she writes unless chasing squirrels and finding puppy friends becomes a more pressing issue.

When Ariana is not writing, she can be found at the rink in a figure skating lesson, binge watching her favorite shows, watching an 80s movie she’s seen hundreds of times, exploring history or traveling to any of her current or new favorite places.

She first published in August of 2018. Her Stone Trilogy was the leaping point. Her next novel, Twisted, in K. Bromberg’s Driven World will follow with its sequel Entwined in the summer of 2021. You can find her first sports romance, Bitter Edge, in the Cocky Hero World.

You can find her exclusively in Kindle Unlimited. You can also sign up for her newsletter, watch her website or find her on all her social media to catch all the latest and greatest on upcoming projects.

Always remember that passion is never a bad thing, it’s where dreams and reality collide.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

This is the final book in this trilogy. What a wonderful journey it has been to watch these five go from high school to college and now forward. Allie Martina and Chris Patton did a great job with the narration and kept me engaged throughout the entire book. I was able to follow then easily going between characters.

This book we get to see Kendal, Teagan, Goose, Mav, and Lucas relationship grow. The wedding and honeymoon was fabulous all I can say is OH MY maple syrup. I love how they make sure they have alone time and time together. They have bumps in the road and not easy ones but the bond they all have gets them through it.

I enjoyed each book in this series. I am sad to see it end but maybe we will see more of this family in the future.

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at a state park.
