I only wanted a cup of coffee. Alone.
It was a simple request, right? Just stroll into the coffee shop on the corner, grab my usual cup of liquid nitrogen, and walk back out. All while minding my own business.
But I had to walk in at that exact moment. Not ten minutes earlier. Not ten minutes later. Precisely when Savannah Fields needed someone to help her. When no one except me had the courage to stand up for her.
After the incident, she looked at me like I was her hero. But I’m no hero. I don’t even know who or what I am anymore. Who is Nick Tucker? A DEA agent? A criminal? Both? Neither? The lines I crossed while undercover blurred my staunch sense of morality.
Then the auburn-haired beauty showed up at my apartment, begging for my help. I couldn’t turn her away.
The more I lost myself in her, the more I found myself again. Or so I thought.
Even a broken clock gets to be right twice a day.
There’s a fine line between right and wrong, love and hate, heaven and hell.

Micah

From the first time I saw Sienna Bardot dancing on my stage, I was mesmerized. But after booking a private room and buying her time, I want more than just one night.

She thinks by telling me that she’s waiting for love and marriage it’ll scare me away, but what she doesn’t understand is that I plan to make her mine in every way.

When her life is threatened, I would do anything to keep her safe—even if that means forcing her to take my last name.

Sienna

Micah Alexander is a man used to getting what he wants, and I’m a woman used to having my choices taken away.

The sexy club owner thinks he can charm me, but it’s never going to happen. I’m dancing my way to a better life—one that doesn’t include making the same mistakes my mom did.

But when her sins come back to haunt me yet again, I have no choice but to turn to the only man who can save me—and hope letting him in doesn’t put my heart in further danger.

A historic American Western story about second chances in life and love.

U.S. Marshal Jameson “Jake” Reid has been searching for the notorious outlaw, Harmon Elwood for nearly a year after he robbed the Midtown Lincoln Stage.

Emily struggles to choose between living the life she had fought for or losing everything she has.

As Jake and Emily become close, Jake finds himself surrounded by conspiracy, blackmail, and a town full of secrets. Can he solve the mystery looming over this town and finally bring Harmon Elwood to justice or will his heart and senses get tangled in a web of lies?

Award-Winning Author A.K. Holthaus is stretching her wings in the publishing world with her first ever American Western Romance featuring her newest hero, U.S. Marshal Jameson “Jake” Reid in her new series, The 1880 Deadwood Diaries.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Hope and tumbleweeds in the wild west!

“The PAST is like a slow death. It’s something no one can change or hide from.”

Sometimes embracing your past and moving beyond is the roughest thing someone can do.

When Jake and Emily’s paths cross they have no clue how intertwined their lives actually are. Both have a past with many secrets. Jake tries to keep a low profile so that he can catch the elusive Harmon Elwood, but is unable stay to himself once he uncovers the truths that are happening in Deadwood. There is an intensity between Jake and Emily that you know is going to explode but the author does a fabulous job of keeping it tamped down so as not to take away from the plot and story.

In full disclosure, I am not a fan of historical romance, but I am a fan of the Wild West. This story does not disappoint! I look forward to continuing the series.

#Review – Mountain Haven (Mountain Mayhem Book 1) by Dawn Love

Mountain Haven (Mountain Mayhem Book 1) by [Dawn Love]

They say when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

But for Lexi Lane, life didn’t hand her those lemons. Instead, they were hurled from a grenade launcher. It’s been almost five years since her world detonated around her, and she’s moved on from that sour time in her life – or so she thinks. Hiding out in the mountains of West Virginia has given her the solitude she’s needed to survive, but surviving is all she’s done. When a stranger crashes into her life, will she finally be able to open herself to feel again? To love again?

Michael “Blaze” Blaisure has devoted his life to righting some of the wrongs in the world. Part of a covert military unit, he has traveled from country to country and seen the pits of hell first-hand. After witnessing more death and despair than his heart and soul could take, he makes the decision to change directions and choose a new path. But will that path lead to acceptance and forgiveness for his part in tragedy and death?

All it takes is a mountain, a storm, and the hand of fate to open their eyes to new horizons. But when danger appears, will it separate them, or bring them closer than ever?

Content/Trigger Warnings: Mountain Haven is meant for adults and contains explicit and graphic sexual scenes and language; themes of grief, death, infant loss, loss of fertility; mental illness, PTSD, depression, agoraphobia; violence; stalking; attempted kidnapping; and disturbing imagery.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Surviving! It doesn’t matter what each of us are going through, we all have our stories and each of us are just trying to survive. Lexi and Blaze come from two completely different backgrounds, both with their own struggles and their own ways of dealing with them. Both looking for a place to escape and somehow finding themselves by finding each other. A raging storm on a mountain brings these two together. Right from the beginning the chemistry is just there. I do believe in a sort of “love at first sight” because sometimes we see someone and just know that it works. These two, even though they are battling their own demons, end up finding each other and helping each other more than either of them knows.

This story is a slow burn. There is a lot that each of them have to dig through just to let loose with the other for even one night. However, there are some bad vibes going that ultimately present a crazy curve ball with the story. One, actually a couple, that I had no clue were coming. Just when I thought they loved and could move on, they lost. And then I thought things were cooling off, BAM! The crazy hits us! This was a slow burn, with the perfect amount of steaminess, and a very suspenseful plotline. Definitely a page turner. Sometimes one person can make you believe in love again and this story is a true testament to that!

#WOTR23 #DoubleReview #NewRelease Always a Groomsman (Love on the Run) by Michel Prince

Always a Groomsman (Love on the Run Book 1) by [Michel Prince]

There’s no reason to let a little thing like death get in the way of a good vacation.

World travelers Serena and Conner Love have been married for years and are always up for a bit of adventure. The Loves have only two constants, their devotion to each other and their ability to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Never having put detective on their resumes, they aren’t crime fighters, at least not professionally. When Serena’s cousin decides to have a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic the stage is set for beachside romance, a little bit of family drama, and a corpse before the couple can say I do.

When a groomsman is found on the beach two days before the wedding, Serena and Conner can’t help themselves from trying to solve the mystery. The Loves believe they’ve uncovered the guilty party using deductive reasoning, a pinch of hacking into security footage, and not missing a beat. When they present their evidence to the police, they discover there might be a block at the local level. Can they find the real killer before the locals sweep the tourist’s death under the radar and blame a local teen they’ve befriended?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

My goal in life is to be like Serena and Conner Love! These two have an incredible relationship that definitely keeps things interesting. Serena and Conner are so different in many ways but absolutely perfect for each other. Serena has a travel vlog and Conner has become her unofficial cameraman. Conner has his own gaming company but has the flexibility to travel with Serena, “with the direct result of retaining knowledge”, Serena’s words, not mine, LOL!

While out on one of their wild adventures, Serena is summoned to her cousin’s wedding at a beautiful resort in the DR. The Love’s make a detour for the wedding and begin to explore the city! However, while mingling with the wedding party they notice some real thick tension with one of the groomsmen. Things go from tense to super intense when the Loves find him murdered on the beach. The worst part is a local that is innocent is about to take the fall. The shenanigans that Conner and Serena get into are pretty funny but also get to some levels of scary. There is a lot of sarcasm, tons of wit, and true cunningness that helps them get through to solve the murder.

The author does a great job with character development. Especially with giving you just enough information on the suspects to keep you guessing who is the guilty one, right to the very end. The world building is amazing, you feel like you are right there! One thing that I really loved is that there are cultural backgrounds for the characters that I don’t normally see in books. I am especially excited that this is the first book in the series because I am ready to immerse myself in all the travels and cultures that the Loves can introduce us to.

Review by: Twinsie Melinda

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

I don’t usually read mystery books but this is by Michele Prince and I so love her books. Serena and Conner are so much fun. They have a one-of-a-kind love and since of adventure.  Well Serena has a crazy since of adventure and Conner follows, I think more to look after her.

While on one of their adventures she is called to be at her cousin’s wedding so they go.  True to Serena form they find themselves in the middle of a mystery.  They befriend a boy on the island who supposedly killed one of the wedding party. We get to see Serena and Conner with the help of some friends figure out what happened to the wedding party member.

We are led through their investigation and learn things as they do.  You think its one thing and then they realize it is something else. I did enjoy Conner and Serena’s chemistry and seeing them work through all the clues they uncovered. I liked that this book let me see the Dominican Republic through the characters eyes good and bad. I have to say the side characters were great to get to know.

#ReleaseDay #SeriesStarter #GrumpyAlpha #AgeGap #RomanticSuspense – Whispers on Timber Creek, Timber Creek 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.

Goodreads

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!!

S.J. Chaynie is a small-town Texas girl who has found a love for writing. She enjoys writing romance, with a sprinkle of suspense, and a little humor. If she is not busy writing her newest ideas, she is spending time with her husband and two beautiful daughters. She believes a good book and a lot of laughs is the best medicine. She brings suspense, love, angst, and sometimes the occasional heartbreak to her stories. Always a HEA, but every character and story she holds close to her heart and hopes they touch yours as well.

#WOTR23 – #Review – Echoes of a Dream (Echoes #1) by BT Urruela

Echoes of a Dream (Echoes Trilogy Book 1) by [BT Urruela, Kim  BookJunkie]

Dylan Correia has always had a special gift. At first he thought he was having a bad trip, hallucinations. By eighteen, he realized it was something different. Something powerful. It began as a wave of prickly heat sweeping over his body, causing the hairs on the back of his neck to stand on end and his eyes to slam shut. He’d see things—terrible things—in his head, and like the echoes of a lucid dream, the thoughts would stay with him for days, torturing him.

He continued ignoring the power, lying to himself, until the day he saw it on the news—a Chevy Malibu flipped upside down and burning. The same one he’d seen in his visions the night before.

After a few years away at college, unburdened by these visions through frequent alcohol abuse, Dylan reaches graduation having already started a successful vinyl and comic book store with his best friend. Everything runs smoothly until a mysterious run-in with a stranger from a top-secret government agency threatens to flip his world on its end.

There’s a new program and Dylan’s a perfect fit.

Will Dylan take the stranger up on his generous, but vaguely described, offer? Does he have what it takes to pass the rigorous training if he does choose to join the program? And at what cost to him?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

The cover and the blurb drew me in immediately. I was definitely intrigued. You go on this journey with Dylan, present day, talking about his past and the trouble he had with his first run in with drugs and the “hallucinations” and further continues on to how he was approached for a top secret opportunity clear through his training. Imagine that? Top secret opportunity that will leave a lot of conspiracy theories in your brain as you continue on Dylan’s journey. That’s what! Other people in the program would, very literally, just disappear. Others were beat down to become very obedient soldiers. But what more would you expect when you accept a very vague job offer? There were times that I forgot that Dylan was basically narrating the story, but he would pop back in at the perfect times with just enough clarification of how he wished things were different before you dove right back into the story again with another twist and turn. There is an M/M romance happening however, it does not overshadow the story at all. If M/M is not your jam, you will still enjoy the story. This is definitely a conspiracy theorists’ wet dream! Full of suspense and will leave you with more questions than answers. A huge cliffhanger! I am anxiously awaiting the next in the trilogy and hoping to get to some much needed answers. Great start to what is sure to be an excellent series!

After careful consideration and multiple surgeries, he along with the guidance of his doctors made the decision to amputate. It was the only surgery he ever left with a smile on his face, as if a weight had been lifted. He struggled for two more years through 4-5 hours of physical therapy a day, five days a week to get adapted to his new prosthetic. He medically retired from the Army with high hopes.

#Review – The End of August: Part Three by Rue Volley

The End of August : Part Three by [Rue Volley]

It’s 1985.
Leaves are falling.
The pumpkins are lit.
Bedroom walls are filled with posters of Teen Wolf, Fright Night, and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

But for August East and his small band of unlikely friends, it’s all about defeating a demon that’s ruled the town of Whynot, Ohio, for half a century, all while hosting a killer party on Halloween.

You know. Normal stuff.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Just WOW! I have no words. I have been sitting here for two days trying to figure out exactly how to describe this book. I have been left speechless and this does not happen very often. I am a bundle of all sorts of feels. There is an incredibly strong pull between East and Keller and you get all the deets on why! I love the bond within their circle of friends. Shy, Evie and Vincent absolutely make this story. They are the glue that really held this entire series together. The relationships between all of the characters is written in a very real way. So much so that when part three ended, I was completely wrecked. And I can’t even get started with the Halloween party and the demon that needs defeated. I did NOT expect the ending, at all!  I had a horrible book hangover, LOL! This series has gotten better and better with each book…..and I seriously am hoping for a spinoff or continuation because, dayum! I NEED MORE! The story is absolutely unforgettable! I feel like the characters are begging for more!! I highly recommend this series!!

#WOTR23 #audio #Cowboys #Suspense #Family – The Last Laugh, The Long Ranch book 3 by Michel Prince, narration by Mark Neely

The Last Laugh (The Long Ranch #3)

In Tender Root Montgomery Long seemed singularly focused on fun. The middle child he only had one real duty, taking care of his younger sister Melody. But he’d failed and as the months tick on without her attacker behind bars he’s itching to exact revenge on the man who almost took his baby sister’s life.
Harper Maxwell’s year had gone from bad, to worse. With an ex husband looming around making her life miserable, the chance to get away to Mexico for a case made sense. As the attorney assigned to the Long case she was set to serve extradition paperwork and hopefully catch a few rays at the beach before heading back home.
If only that could have happened, with threats on Harper’s life can she find safety or even love in the arms of a man who never commits and worse yet may only be a rebound? Or will she become the next tragedy that could destroy the Long Ranch?

Review by Twinsie Angie

The Last Laugh, The Long Ranch book 3 by Michel Prince, narration by Mark Neely

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

Mark’s voice was a great pick for Monty the main male character.  I thought he did a great job bringing the character to life.  I did think his was missing a bit when he voiced the female characters and at time he seemed rushed to deliver the dialogue.  I was however happy with the narration of the story at the end,

The love story in this book is Monty and Harper. I have not read the other 2 books in the story.  I didn’t seem lost or confused as the back story was told in away that gave me the information I needed for this story.  I will say it seems the OVER ALL ARK of the story is in all 3 books.  Like I said, I didn’t feel like /I missed anything but if you can’t stand to read out of ore you might want to start with #1.

Monty, Monty, Monty……he is the reformed town manwhore.  He likes the ladies, and the ladies like him.  LOL  The husbands however, are not fans of his…I mean I get it right???

Monty is looking to find the man who beat up a family member when he sees a beautiful woman on the beach.  A delicious one-night stand later and he sees her again, except this time he is in handcuffs annnnd not the fun kind.

Harper is a DA and she is DONE with her crooked boss and her POS ex-husband who doesn’t seem to understand he is an EX not current.  She goes to Mexico to get the guy she is after and BOOM meets Monty.

The couple keep “crashing” into each other.  Monty catches feelings and isn’t a fan of this.  He also isn’t a fan of just being “Man Meat” for his woman.  Harper is so confused by Monty, but she is not looking for love at all.  Been there , done that and still has the ring to prove it.

A few explosions, death threats, run in with ex’s and a terrible mother has this couple really struggling to be together.

I liked the couple and did enjoy the journey they took.  Chapter 12 had me laughing so hard annnnd then freaking out a bit!!

Come (The Fight Club Book 1) by [Becca Jameson]

To save her, he may have to break all the rules…

Katy Marks has worked hard for years to make partner at her law firm. Unfortunately, one of the firm’s partners has been pressuring her for a date. She has no interest in sleeping her way up the corporate ladder, but he won’t take no for an answer, and he’s following her. His Lexus is in the parking lot of her uncle’s gym when she steps outside. In a split-second decision, she plasters herself to the sexy man leaning casually against the wall outside the gym.

Rafe Wesson is stunned by one look at the woman so totally out of place at the gym. His plan is to casually run into her outside and ask her out. And then she catches him off-guard with a kiss that rocks his world.

Katy isn’t Rafe’s type. She’s far too innocent. But two dates don’t dampen his desire. Rafe has personal rules against sleeping with a woman before she is fully informed about his preferences. However, Katy is persistent. She wants him, but he fears he’ll lose her when she finds out about his lifestyle.

Rafe tries to step away from her, but he can’t ignore the unknown threat that haunts her, and time is running out. Someone wants Katy dead. And Rafe wants Katy…very much alive.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

I was looking for a way to spend my audio credits and knew this author was attending my event next summer, so I jumped at the book.  I mean MMA guys are hawt!!  So I kind of went in blind as to what the story was about, LOL I live dangerous I know.

The story started out wit typical fights ribbing each other about the hot as hell lady in the gym.  When said hot as hell lady grabs Rafe and kisses him senseless, he is addicted!!  He then noticed the guy watching his hottie and him.

Katy grabs the hot fighter outside the gym to keep her creepy co-worker at bay.  She hopes if e sees her with someone, especially this guy, he will realize she isn’t interested.

Rafe and Katy’s kiss was combustible.  The two meet up for coffee and soon coffee becomes dinner.   Rafe isn’t too sure about this “harmless” co-worker especially when someone seems to want to harm Katy.  Rafe’s secret dominant side id BEGGING to come out but he needs to make sure she is ok with his expectations.

I enjoyed the mystery of the stalker and the love story developing between Katy and Rafe.  I think they were a fun couple and look forward to more from the club to discover.
