#WOTR21 #Review – Pam (The Mate Series #3) by: Teresa Gabelman

Pam (The Mate Series, #3)

With a past best left behind, forgetting was something Pam Roark could not seem to do. Nothing was more important than her mate, VC Warrior Duncan Roark, and her son, Daniel. But the circumstances surrounding Daniel and his remarkable abilities throws her back into nightmares she can’t escape.

During her journey to protect her son from those who would exploit him, Pam realizes it isn’t Daniel who needs help, but herself. With the help of her mate and son, a path leads her to the life she was meant to have—without the horrors.

The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

I get just as excited when a Mate Series book comes out as a Protector Book. This time its Pam’s turn.

Pam has overcome so much in her time. However, watching her little boy grow up so fast Is proving to be the most difficult. What mother couldn’t sympathize with her. What most parent sees happen in 18 years Pam has seen Daniel go though in 7 years. Pam is trying to protect Daniel but Daniel doesn’t see it that way. Duncan is there for Pam but sees Daniel is more than a 7 year old boy.

I enjoyed seeing Duncan and Pam’s relationship grow but felt this was just as much Daniel’s book as Pam’s. I like how the story moved forward and opened up more of the story line for the Protector Series.

I like the way the story line is going and that we will get to learn more about Raven and Charger next.

Teresa Gabelman is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the ‘Protectors Series’. When not writing about sexy alpha vampires and the women who drive them crazy she can be found on a lake with a fishing pole/Kindle, at a MMA event or spending a fun evening with family.

#NewRelease #PartOfASeries – What You See (Sons of the Survivalist Book 3) by Cherise Sinclair

What You See (Sons of the Survivalist, #3)

She will risk everything to rescue her friend.

Frankie’s BFF and four-year-old son are trapped inside a fanatical militia’s compound. In Alaska, no less. Wilderness rescues are so not in the New Yorker’s skill set. But she’ll figure it out. She must.

Bull’s new roadhouse server is a mass of contradictions.

The city girl’s reasons for being in Alaska don’t add up. Bull’s been burned by liars before. So, why is he falling for this crap again? Maybe it’s her big brown eyes, exuberant personality—or her generous, compassionate heart. Whatever the reason is, he cares. If she’s in trouble, he’ll do his damnedest to get her out.

The huge Alaskan is terrifyingly compelling–and heartwarmingly concerned for her.

But Frankie refuses to involve Bull in the deadly mess. Her plan to rescue her bestie will work without anyone getting hurt. As she tries her best not to fall in love, she doggedly acquires each skill she’ll need.

Getting shot, though…that hadn’t been on her to-do list.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Oh Bull!!  I tell ya this guy had my heart from the first chapter!!!  Mako raised those boys with tough love but also the kindness that they each needed.  These boys would make their dad proud.

Bull is running his Roadhouse and hires a new waitress who happens to be here on a mission to save her best friend and child.  Frankie is no doubt not a fan of Bull initially.  She overhears something and is mistaken by it.  She soon learns Bull is not what she seems and is having a hard time staying true to her path of rescue for her friend.

Bull is intrigued by Frankie and knows she is someone he needs to tread lightly around.  She isn’t his ex but she needs some TLC.  The couple find a dynamic that is perfect and what the other is looking for.  Can I just say I like Cherise’s ability to write these amazing characters?  The men you obviously want for your own but the women you can relate to on so many levels.

Seeing Gabe and Caz still going strong with their ladies is always a treat.  Adding another woman to the family mix is amazing but friends……Hawk.  Yo!! He needs some TLC in the biggest way possibly.  He is the book I am counting the days for.  He is the one who captured my heart immediately out of the group.

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, alpha males, and absolutely sizzling sex.

I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. But although we were together less than two days and lived on opposite sides of the country, love can’t be corralled by time or space.

We’ve now been married for many, many years. (And he still looks down my swimsuit tops.)

Nowadays, I live in the west with this obnoxious, beloved husband and a seventy-pound lap-puppy. I’m a gardener, and I love nurturing small plants until they’re big and healthy and productive…and ripping defenseless weeds out by the roots when I’m angry. I enjoy thunderstorms, collecting eggs from the chickens, and visiting the local brewery for the darkest, maltiest beer on tap. My favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch next to the master of my heart, watching the fire, reading, and…well…if you’re reading my books, you obviously know what else happens in front of fires.

Just One Kiss (Oh Tequila 4)  by CA Harms

https://amzn.to/3pwBXtA

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/43070788-just-one-kiss?from_search=true&from_srp=true&qid=s9FqCDabDW&rank=44

What do you get when you mix Tequila with a house full of rowdy Fraternity brothers who have no boundaries? A cucumber, a pink thong, and a bottle of lube. Oh yeah, and super glue. There is always super glue…

Parties, drinking, and plenty of mornings where you can’t remember what you did the night before…that was my life.

Yet, there was one memory that lingered in my mind. Ten minutes in the woods with Palmer that got too intense to ignore.

But ten minutes with her wasn’t enough. It would never be enough.

She’s a force, one that swept in unexpectantly, knocked me on my ass and left me with an intense craving. Palmer tried to fight it with every fiber in her being, but I could see the desire in her eyes. That curiosity that lived inside of her, wondering what it would be like if she just gave in…again.

I had to convince her that our time together wasn’t a mistake. That she wants me as much as I want her. We share a connection, a bond, that has changed me in ways I never expected. She saved me. And to think…

It all started with Just One Kiss.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

I freaking loved this tight ball of sexual tension relationship. Corbin is bound to get under more then Palmer’s skin, he wants all of her and little does he know she wants him too just as much but she’ll never let him know that. When a horrible accident happens sending Corbin into a spiral of drugs, drinking and falling into a black hole, Palmer is the only one who can pull him out of it and bring him back. When her past has the key to bringing him back, but it’s the one secret she isn’t ready to let out of the vault yet. These two are amazing and I just loved them so much.

Ready to Were (Shift Happens Series 1) by Robyn Peterman

https://amzn.to/3lyDQDK

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23524116-ready-to-were

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever.

I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.

Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.

But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Essie left her old life in the middle of the night and moved to Chicago never looking back. A year later her new job had her forced to go back to find out what was happening to all these female werewolves that kept going missing. So she found herself taking her gay best friend vampyre back to her hometown to kill these bad guys and try not to run into the alpha who also happens to be her ex. Will she be able to get the job done without any trouble or will she find herself in her exs bed before she leaves town again. This book was amazing so funny especially when you put a guy vampyre and an older granny wolf together its bound to be hilarious and it was definitely a great read.

Being Us (the next generation 4) by J.M. Walker

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51377055-being-us

https://amzn.to/3fLnPIy

Tanner-

She was beautiful.

Loved.

Strong.

After hiding away for six months with just my dog to keep me company, I was forced out of the shadows only to end up in the arms of an enemy.

Beatrix Lister saved my life. I had been taking care of myself for so long, I didn’t know how to ask for help, but she refused to go down without a fight.

She was warm where I was frigid.

She was kind and caring where I was a cold-blooded monster.

I did things to survive.

I battled the evils of the world to live.

I didn’t deserve her heart but fell in love with her anyway.

As much as I wanted to be with her, I needed answers and I would do anything to get them.

Even if it meant breaking the heart of the only woman I had ever loved.

~

-Bee-

He was lonely.

Intense.

Brave.

Tanner Horsch came into my life unexpectedly. He was like a tornado, ripping up everything in its path.

There was something about him that I craved.

His touch. His words. His need to survive.

But as we were getting to know each other, he still had walls up.

He refused to let me in knowing my family didn’t approve of him.

I refused to let him go.

After being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he escaped and eventually he ran right into my arms.

He was the villain of someone else’s story, but he was the hero of mine.

I just prayed that he could see that not all monsters are truly evil.

Before it was too late, and he gave himself to the enemy.

My family.

I was given this book and this is my honest opinion

Where do I start this slow burn is everything I didn’t know I needed. Bee just wants to be see as an adult and not as a child, when all she’s ever been is sheltered her whole life. Tanner was at the wrong place at the kind right time to put together some missing pieces after a member of another MC club got killed the one witness that never lies a near by security camera have him at the scene making him look bad but can he help the club find out who really pulled the trigger. This couple makes you root for all things good in the world and when people try to keep them apart it only brings them closer. You will absolutely love this story with all the interruptions and feelings.

The Homegrown Café Book Club series blurb:

Makin’ Bacon (The Homegrown Café Book Club 1)

Heroine is 42; hero is 35.

Divorcée Tate Madison wasted fifteen years of her life with a liar and a cheat. Now she’s returned to her hometown to open The Homegrown Café, find a sperm donor, and spend time with her family and new friends. Encouraged by her fellow middle-aged book-club buddies, she begs a favor from her younger brother’s best friend—father the child her ex-husband denied her. Complications abound when she discovers she’s attracted to the man who wasn’t supposed to be more than an anonymous profile at the clinic.

Pig farmer Jim Cochon knows all about in-vitro fertilization, but he’d rather do things the old-fashioned way with the irresistible redhead he’s wanted to marry since he was five. Too bad she refuses his proposal the morning after their attempt to make a baby. He’ll have to convince her second chances are worth taking when happily-ever-after is at stake.

The Farmer Takes a Husband (The Homegrown Café Book Club 2)

Heroine is 47; hero is 39.

Organic farmer Riley Fenniman is happily single at forty-seven and refuses to acknowledge an attraction to her younger accountant, let alone surrender to it. Unfortunately, a legal catch in her farm’s ownership and a health scare give her no choice in the matter. The women of The Homegrown Café Book Club have the perfect plan to ensure Riley’s cousin can’t get his greedy paws on her legacy, but it includes a husband and two pubescent girls.

CPA Deacon Jeffries has carried a torch for his favorite client for over a year, but she would probably sooner light him with it than return his affection. She makes an offer he can’t refuse to save her farm, one that makes his wish come true and gives his daughters the mother they need—except for lessons in dropping f-bombs. When the secret she’s keeping reveals itself, he’ll have to choose between self-preservation and love.

One game of tongue hockey is enough with the guy she used to babysit. So what if he’s hot and is a good kisser?

Baker Auggie Hofmeier didn’t mean fall in love with or accidentally marry the butcher, but his heart seems to know what it’s doing. Besides, his new wife invited him home for a wedding night and more, that is, until the conniving interference by The Candlestick Maker, the old man who owns the shop he and Pet both want to buy, threatens their happily-ever-after.

#review #seriesstarter Blood of Zeus (Blood of Zeus 1) by Meredith Wild and Angel Payne

An ancient grudge. A forbidden love.

The only thing worse than being a demon is being a Valari. As an undergraduate at Los Angeles’s Alameda University, Kara Valari can sometimes succeed at forgetting she’s both. Lost between the pages of the classics and tucked into the shadows of lecture halls, she can dodge the paparazzi’s lenses as well as her family’s publicized dramas—not to mention their private expectations. She has one more year to feed her true passions. Then she’ll be expected to fulfill a much darker destiny.

Cursed with inexplicable strength and god-like stature, literature professor Maximus Kane knows all about darkness. Every day he’s reminded of the missteps of his childhood and the devastating consequences they’ve had on those dearest to him. To atone, Maximus spends his nights alone and his days submerged in the quiet life of academia. His existence has become a study in control, and he’s become a master at it—until Kara Valari walks into his toughest course.

Viscerally, Kara’s everything he craves. Logically, she’s everything he rejects. She’s a starlet of privilege. She’s also a student. And after one touch, he can’t deny that she’s awakened something in him that may never go dormant. Nothing about her makes sense, but everything about her feels right. Especially in the deepest strands of his DNA, which are still shadows of mystery to him—a mystery Kara seems determined to uncover.

She’s Hollywood royalty. She’s forbidden fruit. And he’s pretty sure she could be the answer to everything.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

So Kara has a dark family secret that she doesn’t want to get out she also a see herself as the black sheep of her family. She goes to class and hides in the shadows away from the paparazzi the best she could away from the cameras but with her last name it’s easier said then done. Maximus Kane the sexy college professor who catches the eye of every female student he has walk into his classroom.  But the moment his eyes landed on Kara there was a spark neither one of them could explain but they did know that they didn’t want to stay away from each other. They both had secrets hiding from one another the only difference is that Kara knew about hers and Maximus didn’t. Will these secrets rip them apart before they have even begun or will they protect each other at no cost. This was a pretty good story overall a very slow burn building up everything to topple over and leave you hanging ready for the next book.

#Review – Throttled (Men of Inked Novella) by Chelle Bliss

**THROTTLED IS ALSO INCLUDED HOOK ME**

She’s about to become his – Mrs. Joseph Gallo. All she wants is to be his, but his possessiveness days before the wedding has her questioning the reality of a happily ever after.

He’s not easy. He’s territorial and doesn’t share well with others. City’s staking his claim, making Suzy his forever.
Their future teeters precariously on the cliff of matrimonial bliss. Will their love survive his alpha nature or will it all unravel before she can say ‘I do’?

Suzy and City get married!!!

This novella was so much fun and HOT! Holy City. What a hero!

This story is short but it’s jam packed with so much goodness, I absolutely loved it!

City and Suzy are in the middle of wedding planning and when their wedding fast approaches, they have their bachelor/bachelorette parties. City and the boys end up at the same bar that Suzy and the girls are at and unfortunately, City sees some guy all over his girl.

Drama happens and their relationship is tested. I guess you’ll have to read to find out what happens and how it all works out.

I loved the Christmas part of this book too. It got me a little emotional as well. Which doesn’t happen often when I read, so kudos to you, Chelle!

#Review – Hook Me (Men Of Inked, #2) by Chelle Bliss

Bad boy fighter meets good girl doctor.

Michael Gallo spends his mornings training for the UFC championship and his nights working as a piercer at Inked, his family-owned tattoo shop. He’s on the road to winning a title when he meets woman who alters his world forever.

Dr. Mia Greco is dedicated to saving lives and helping the less fortunate. She doesn’t have time to meet Mr. Right and buries herself in her work instead. Then fate steps in and sweeps the rug out from under her. She tries to deny the pull to a man that uses his fists, but the universe won’t let her walk away so easy.?

This book includes Throttled, a Men of Inked bonus novella.

Oh well this series only gets better and better. I know I know. I’m super late to the game and should have read these books forever ago. Chelle’s going to be writing the grandchildren’s stories by the time I’m done.

Michael is a MMA fighter and a bad boy. Never thinking he’d settle down. You know the type.

Mia is a doctor and she definitely never thought she’d settle down. With her job taking most of her time, she doesn’t have any time for dating, that’s for sure.

Michael ends up in her ER after getting hurt and there was an instant connection. After bumping into each other again, sparks fly and they end up going on a date.

They have some fun because of course, Mia feels she isn’t ready for a relationship but Michael is a persistent one. He wants her happy and does something sweet for her that I had a smile on my face the whole time when he revealed the surprise to her.

I loved reading about the side characters again and reading about the Gallo family dynamic. The characters are strong and I want to be best friends with the girls.

#Review – Throttle Me (Men of Inked Book 1) by Chelle Bliss

“Everything we LOVE in a book!” ~Ana’s Attic Book Blog

What happens when the good girl falls for the bad boy?

Suzy is a control freak and has her life mapped out. She’s content with the status quo, but her plan comes to a screeching halt when he enters her life and turns it upside down.

City gave up on love when his heart was crushed in college, but a chance encounter on a dark road makes him question what he had sworn off forever – a relationship.

A night of passion and lust causes them to question everything.

Is the tattooed bad boy her knight in shining armor? Can their relationship survive when a fantasy falls apart and a secret comes out that could change everything?

Throttle Me is the first book in the USA Today bestselling Men of Inked series by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss.
SEXY as hell read.” ~The Romance Vault
“This book had me WEAK AT THE KNEES!” ~Fictional Men’s Page
HOOKED from page one.” ~United Indies Book Blog

Oh where do I start?? Well, this book was fun!

So I’ve known Chelle for a while but haven’t had a chance to read her Men of Inked books yet. I’ve read others by her and am finally going through the rest. I do have to say right off the bat that I’m glad I read Kayden and Sophia’s books before reading this one. Not that you have to read them first but it’s mentioned a few times throughout this book that Sophia and Kayden had it hard in the beginning, which they did. So I liked that I knew their history.

Suzy’s car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and who comes to rescue her? City of course. Right away, there’s some chemistry between them. After a few drinks, the sparks fly even more!

City is a tattoo artist and is not Suzy’s type at all. She’s a good girl and had a list in her head on who her future husband should be. She wasn’t expecting to fall for anyone even remotely close to resembling City. Tattoos, piercings and a whole lot of Alpha!

I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to read the rest of the books! I have so much to catch up on but am looking forward to the journey!
