Gorgeous Nightmare : An Ariel Kimber World Novel by Mary Martel | Goodreads 

Isobel has been through a lot more than the average woman in her short life. 

Family murdered. 

Tortured by the Council. 

Rescued by a beautiful man she’s obsessed with. 

She’s not the average witch. She’s slightly broken, plagued by horrible nightmares, and she’s also just a little bit on the crazy side. 

But broken and slightly crazy women deserve love too, right? 

She sure thinks so. Now she’s got to convince all the men in her life that they should take a chance on her and give love a try as well. 

The only problem with that is they’re all just as crazy as she is, if not even more so. And she is certainly not the only damaged one in the bunch. They’ve all got their own nightmares to face, they just need to learn that it’s much easier to face them together than it is to stand all alone in the dark with no one to hold your hand through it. 

Review- Finally we are getting a looking into a few new characters we have gotten to know later on in the series. Isobel was saved by Ariel from the council she was being held captive in a dark hole chained by her arms and had her eye sight stripped, they used and abused her also they killed her entire family. She is a fighter and now she’s living with Rain, and Baxter in the cabin. They are their own little family with Romero who is Dash’s father who was thought to be dead all theses year surprise a deep dark secret that Ariel was able to solve. Also Finn is now a part of this little group and hes got eyes for 1 female witch that is a first for him a female has never made him feel this way but Isobel does. These lives might have a tragic and traumatic past but together they are each other’s missing links and are the key to each others happiness. MARY has done it again another amazing book in a world im so in love with.

#wotr #attendingauthor #seriesstarter Seeing Sound (Tasting Madness 1) by Albany Waker  

https://amzn.to/3QkhuUW 

Seeing Sound (Tasting Madness, #1) by Albany Walker | Goodreads 

I’m starting over. 
 
Moving to a new town to start college, where I can try to be normal. Or at least pretend I am. 
 
I’m willing to fake it, because I’m tired of trying to get better. Tired of spilling my guts to doctors and therapists to understand why I’ve heard voices since I was a child. 
 
The meds are working… for now, but if they stop, I’ll never tell. I just want to live my life, and if that means ignoring why so many people think I’m crazy, so be it. 
 
She’s the most silent storm I’ve ever witnessed. 
 
Waylynn is as pretty as a picture, curvy, with hazel eyes that always seem to evade everyone’s gaze. 
 
She’s been avoiding me since our first encounter, but fate intervenes and brings her right back to me… and my brother. 
 
Now I need to know more. 
 
Seeing Sound is the first book of the Tasting Madness Series. This is Reverse Harem novel with adult themes and situations. 

Review- Waylynn is starting college in a new town and trying to be as normal as possible. She got the right combination of medication so that the voices will stop for the time being and she can be as normal as she can. But when she hears the voices that are normally in her head out loud, she starts to get a little freaked out but she isnt going to let that bother her too much. She’s just gotten out of the in-patient treatment center that her parents send her to when the voices get to strong because her medication isnt working again. But this time shes not going crazy the voices belong to faces and they are right in front of her. Maverick is the TA in Waylynn’s english class and they have a pull to each other that is very strange to her shes never felt anything like this before. But she also feels it for his brother too. She cant explain these feelings but she also don’t know what to do about it. None of them do, will they give into these feelings, with Waylynn telling them all about her past or will she keep it a secret. This book was so good a bit confusing to me in the beginning but then the pieces started to go together and I couldn’t put it down. Once again Albany proves why I love her and anticipate all of her words.

#wotr #newrelease #mm #standalone Rebound by Kate Hawthorne 

Rebound by Kate Hawthorne | Goodreads 

https://amzn.to/3qeHiHy 

They say the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else… 
 
At least that’s what Ben is trying to convince himself. Ready to put his ex-boyfriend in the rear view for good, he connects with a handsome older man who’s only interested in something quick and casual. Their rules are simple—no strings, no feelings, and absolutely no kissing. 
 
Thomas has never been with a man before, but in the midst of divorcing his estranged wife, he knows it’s something he is ready to act on. He’s wondered for years if his attraction to men is something real, so hooking up with an experienced and gorgeous younger man seems like a surefire way to find out. Better yet, it’ll kill two birds with one stone: exploring the depths of his midlife awakening and moving forward into a brand kind of new life. 
 
One time together turns into two times, and two turns into something regular, but the rules still apply… until they don’t. Late night phone calls lead to early evening dinner dates, and one by one the rules are all out the window. 
 
Ben was supposed to be Thomas’s first time, and Thomas was supposed to be Ben’s rebound…but what if the best way to get over someone is also the best way to fall in love? 

 Review-What better way to get over your ex-wife then sleeping with a man right? Well Thomas did that very thing he always had a curious side of him of what it would be like to be with a man, and after he finally got divorced from his wife who was actually cheating on him, he thought what better time than now he was alone in his new apartment he got on an app he had so hidden no one would find it. Ben was dealing with a narcissist boyfriend who just abused his body, mind and spirit, but a good romp in the sheets seemed to fix it for that moment. Well he finally had enough and finally ended it with him, Ben found himself on the same app, not looking for anything serious just a good lay from time to time. Well Ben and Thomas end up talking and next thing Thomas knew he was at Ben’s door for the first time and his first time being with a man. It was everything Thomas ever though it would be and he was glad he finally did it and Ben was just as impressed with Thomas’s performance even though he didn’t know it was his first time with a man. Will Thomas be able to keep his past in the past and just be able to hook up with Ben without catching feelings and same for Ben who was fine with a no strings attached   hookup or will everything come out of the closet and go up in flames. Wow this story was so spicey and crazy but oh so good.

#wotr #attendingauthor #seriesstarter Summer Heat (Dirty Summer 1) By Mary Martel and Melissa Adams

https://amzn.to/3gRYVvk

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61110130-summer-heat

“A dirty summer fling with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks.”

This is my sister’s recipe to avoid boredom as we spend the summer at Daddy’s newly purchased resort.

I’m not looking forward to spending time with her and our snobby, demanding mother, but hey, at least the view is nice.

Nice and hot. Like the staff.

There’s Matt, the gorgeous chauffeur. Drew, the sexy chef. And Brady, the smoking hot surfing instructor.

Boring goes out the window when I catch their attention and maybe they could give me the dirty summer my sister was talking about, a summer like I’ve never dared to dream of before.

Too bad that the guys have big dreams for their future and that means keeping their heads down, winning the biggest surfing competition Coral Cove has ever seen and most of all, keeping their jobs at Daddy’s resort.

And to do that, they know that they can show the guests a good time on the dance floor and in the water, even flirt a little, but it has to end there.

The guests are off limits and as the boss’s daughter I’m even more out of their reach.

But nothing goes as planned, lines get blurred, and the summer nights heat up.

When we can’t stay away from each other and I make it my mission to help them make their dream come true, will we end the summer with a victory or will we lose it all?

Attention: this is a story where the heroine won’t have to choose between her different love interests. This story is part of a duet and ends in a cliffhanger.

Review- Greer has just got to Coral Cove the new summer home where her dad just purchase a resort. Her family is rather wealthy and her mother and sister prove jut why Greer really could care less about the fancy things in life she would rather stay in and read her book. Well this summer is gonna get spicy she not only does things that she never thought she would do like surf, fall for not 1 but 3 guy her father’s employees none the less, and compete in a surfing competition when the guys need an extra person. But with this fancy life comes lies and secrets, her fathers future business parter’s rude on tries to get in her pant with everything going on the island the guys are the only good thing that could make her summer better its already hot on the island but its gonna get dirty as well. Wow wow wow this is steamy and oh so sexy.

Cursed Luck (Broderick Coven, #5)

Edward Broderick was anything but lucky.

His intuition made him suave in both business and life. Unfortunately, his debonair style went out the window when an ethereal beauty slipped into his life. No woman had made him feel like a tongue-tied fifteen-year-old before.

Free-spirited Mia Hemlock didn’t live by others’ expectations. Yet her easy life was shaken by the arrogant and awkward, yet handsome, man. Not even her earth magic could ground her heart when she became consumed by the man.

Will they accept the goddess’s love match, or will they allow misunderstandings and greed to force them apart?

Broderick Coven Series:
Cursed Love
Cursed Sight
Cursed Whispers
Cursed Touch

Vow to Protect

They call me a monster.

Murderous and hateful.

Beautiful but broken.
Nothing can calm the ever raging storm inside of me. As the ruthless leader of the Doubeck family there is a certain standard of brutality I have to uphold.

To be gentle or kind is a weakness I cannot afford.

That is until the day I meet her.

Beautiful, innocent, and so very afraid.

Valentina is a rival family’s daughter, and the little temptress has purposely tangled herself in my dark web.

She seeks me out, needing my help, but the price for what she wants will be steep.

Since my father’s death I’ve needed a wife to solidify my family name and this woman has piqued my interest.

We strike a deal intertwining our futures.

I’ll put a ring on her finger, own her body, keep her safe, and kill them all.

I make a vow to protect her at all costs.

That is until her secrets come to light, and I’m left with the choice of becoming the monster she’s only ever heard rumors about.

**This is a dark forced marriage mafia romance, that ends on a cliffhanger. It contains dub-con/non-con as well as other scenes that may be triggering to some readers.**

Time Stamps by [KL Kreig]

Time stamps.

Our life is marked by them. Significant milestones to the seemingly mundane. All of them have a place. A purpose. Moments and chapters stacking on each other, building scars and memories. Creating stories that are only ours to tell.

But those stamps are finite, pre-determined. And eventually our allotment runs out.

This is our story. Our collection of time stamps. The culmination of our love, our struggles, our redemption and our heartbreak. This story isn’t always easy, but it is real. A genuine account of utter devotion, where every page is crammed with pure emotion and truth and the gift of loving another person more than yourself. Share with us in our dreams, our laughter. Cry with us in our sorrows, our pain.

Take this journey through our time stamps with Laurel and I, and I will meet you at the end.

~ Roth Warren Keswick

Ugly snot sobbing cry review HERE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Quinton by [Mary  Martel , Mary  Martel]

Quinton Alexander is the head of his coven, or so he thinks.

He’s the type of man who would go to any extreme to protect his loved ones, and he’s also the type of man who would do anything it took to make sure they are all happy.

He grew up in a way that taught him that the only thing that really mattered in this whole world was keeping the people you love safe—a lesson he learned at a very young age from his twisted, sadistic father.

But sometimes in a man’s life, it’s nice to know that the people you love care just as much about you as you do them. Sometimes, it’s nice to be able to put yourself first for once.

Especially when it comes to the girl of your dreams, whom you have to share with the rest of your coven.

When it comes down to it, though, who’s going to go to extremes to protect the leader of the coven when he needs it? Who’s going to keep him safe? Or is he going to have to do what he always does and look after himself?

Quinton Alexander is an Ariel Kimber Novella. It’s a part of a reverse harem series. It contains mature content and is best suited for readers 18+.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

First up, for all you cliffhanger haters…this is a cliffhanger so suck it up buttercup and read it!

If you didn’t read the prologue, no worries, its in this novel as well.  We meet Adrian and Valentina.  They are attracted to each other, but they are in different mafia families.  Val’s family hates Adrian’s family.  Val is in a bad situation being engaged to a monster who feels that fists are for women and not hugs…catch my drift??  So Val makes Adrian an offer he can’t refuse…. keep Val for life to be is wife and kill her douche fiancée who she is not even close to in love with.

Adrian and Val must deal with a lot since Sal left Val with a few parting bruises and another terrible trauma to deal with.  Adrian is trying to burn the world down to find her ex ALONG WITH her father.

The two slowly learn each other’s tells and bodies *Snickers* while learning to lean on each other.  They are slowly falling in love, but each is worried about what will happen IF the council takes her away.  IF the council nullifies their marriage.  IF Val leaves him once the deal is done. IF he will toss her out and not want her anymore once the deal is done.  They talk but sometimes talk AROUND their fears.

There is a lot of violence, twists, backstabbing and worries to keep this couple on their toes.  We are dying to see Adrian get some revenge for Val.  We are also hoping to see this love blooming between Adrian and Val become more open and then………………BOMB DROP and holy moly was I left with my mouth open at the end.     I mean we see it coming but yeah….its still a hard one to swallow.  I cant wait for more!!!

Monica Corwin is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author. She is an outspoken writer attempting to make romance accessible to everyone, no matter their preferences. As a Northern Ohioian, Monica enjoys snow drifts, three seasons of weather, and a dislike of Michigan football. Monica owns more books about King Arthur than should be strictly necessary.
