I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Callie wanted one thing for christmas a boyfriend thats not too much to ask right? Well thats was she finds herself asking Santa for when her niece makes her also sit on his lap at the mall. Greyson finds himself giving Santa a ride to the bus stop after hes done at the mall and when Santa ask him what he wants for christmas he says a good girl who is hot. well you can call it fate or a christmas miracle but with the help from Santa these two path were forced to cross and nothing was going to stop it from them meeting up. how many signs does it take for them to get the hint if they do at all. just remember your never too old to believe in the magic of Santa

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Feel My Love (Lovelly Book 4) by Clara Stone


When it comes to family, truth matters.

For Vincent Gallo, family is everything. It’s the one thing he and the Lovellys have always seen eye to eye on. And when it comes to saving his half-brothers from their abusive mom, he’s determined to do anything—even be indebted to a Lovelly. 

But the second Ivy Rose bumps into him, she’s all he can think about. Mesmerizing, gorgeous, and seemingly mute, it’s not until he gets home that he realizes, she’s a Lovelly, too. Suddenly, he understands what drew Ace and Jessica to the Lovellys. But as a long-lost half-sister, Ivy’s life hasn’t seen the privilege bestowed upon her brothers. In fact, in some ways, it mirrors Vincent’s own.

With his half-brothers’ future at stake, can he really afford to let his heart win? Or is falling for Ivy Rose a distraction that’ll cost him everything?

I was given this book and this is my honest opinion

I don’t even know how to form words for how much I loved this book. The Lovelly family has been in my heart for years and to see the last book have the end typed out hurts my heart I wasn’t ready to say goodbye but it was a great book for saying goodbye with. Ivy is the long lost sibling that has just found the Lovelly’s and at first she doesn’t want to leave her life now even though it’s not the perfect life it was her. Vincent grew up with a drug addicted step mother, has been in jail for anger issues, and is now trying to turn his life around and get custody of his 3 younger brothers from his step mom. One day he ran into a girl at the mall and ended up with Dr Pepper all over him and well you might say it was love at first sight once he looked into Ivy’s eye. This love story is one for the books it’s heartwarming, selfless and beautiful Ivy and Vincent are the prefect storm.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Clara Stone writes YA/NA Contemporary Romance and Paranormal Romance stories and is a complete sucker for sweet, memorable kisses. She strongly believes that true love conquers EVERYTHING, along with a tub of Ice cream!

When she isn’t reading or writing or dancing, much to the embarrassment of her husband and two kids, she’s probably watching Supernatural and The Walking Dead.

#WOTR20 – #Review – Stephen: The Omega’s Curse

Stephen: The Omega's Curse

Stephen:

I don’t know how much more I can take. In the span of two weeks I have been told I am a rare omega, yanked from my pack by an old crone who says I need this journey to discover the powers I hold within Then the real bomb is dropped. I am cursed. When another pack alpha decides to snatch my true mate out from under me, my wolf and I take things into our own hands and call in reinforcements. I promise if that alpha harms a hair on her head, I’ll have his on a platter!

Harper:

Things have gone to hell in a hand basket quick after Hallister becomes the new alpha of the River Pack. I must go against everything I am and everything I believe in to save my pack. I was resigned to do what is needed until my true mate shows up. Now my head and heart are at odds. The alpha of a border pack snatches me to use as a bargaining chip against my mate and the original omega. I will not become a pawn in this war. Now will I allow another person I love to sacrifice themselves to save me.

Bookbub

First and foremost, I have loved all the shifters in the Black Mountain Pack. Each time I read one I think that it is my absolute favorite. I think that I love them all differently as each one is so different but their stories all overlap. I really enjoy how each one has their own journey and path with each one intertwining into the next. Stephen’s journey is no different but I think it is deeper than some of the others. Stephen is pulled from his pack to go on a journey with Adele. This is a journey of self discovery as he is coming into his Omega powers. On top of this he finds his true mate. The only thing is, they have been connecting in the dream world and things get real shifty when they finally meet in person. Harper is a strong, independent woman and the daughter of the true Alpha who is deceased. The new alpha is power hungry and has a claim on Harper because of her status. Stephen and Harper cannot announce they are mates at this time because of the turmoil in her pack and the new power hungry alpha, Halister. Her pack has also not seen a true mate in many years and thinks it’s all myths and legends now. Things really go haywire when Harper is kidnapped by a rival pack who wants to use her as leverage for her mate’s omega powers. 

Stephen and Harper’s story will suck you in from the start. It is fast paced with no dull moments. From the craziness of the power hungry alpha to the sexual angst between Stephen and Harper to the insanity of Harper’s captors….it just keeps going and going and going….This story does not disappoint and is an absolute must read!

Review by Twinsie Dee

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

What a GREAT addition to the continued ARC of this story!!!  OMG  Zeke and Dakota were awesome!!

Zeke is a baby brother in the mix of 7 brothers, so I did not feel we knew a lot about him other then he was a goofball.  So, seeing him take the reigns to protect his ever-growing family made him stand out.  His brothers are all mated and now daddies, so he jumps to try and find THE BOOK they need to keep the pack safe.

Dakota is one tough a$$ chick!!  Her character was amazing.  She is one sister-in-law or daughter-in-law the Hallows will be leaning on when the final war happens.  She has seen all the bad things the vampires are capable of and she has risen from the trauma to be a vampire hunter.

When she stalks into a bar and sees Zeke, they are both stunned and attracted instantly.  When they have a fun night, they wake up, and Zeke has some explaining to do.  We all know what they have buuuut Dakota is not a big believer is fate let alone a fated mate!!

The story goes on and we see Zeke being Dakota’s “side kick” to track down the Vampires with the book they need.  Soon they discover the vampires also have another little hidden gem for world domination so they, of course, decide to ruin that plan as well.

The story is fast paced.  We learn about a society of humans who work together to stop vampires and other bad creatures.  We learn about Dakotas past and hurt which prevents her from moving forward.  We also see Zeke becoming the selfless hero all the Hallows become to protect their mate.

The story was a great addition to the series.  I look forward to each installment and cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.  Baby brother Josh will soooo fall for his mate and we will see what happens with the overall arc of the story.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries With Us (Next Generation 2) by J.M. Walker


-Shade-

She was young.

Sweet.

Feisty.

But then there was him.

We had been best friends for years. We lived together. Rode together. Shared women. Together. And it still wasn’t enough. Not for him and especially not for me.

-Sunny-

He was mine.

I was his.

She was ours.

Meadow Rodriguez strutted into our lives and looked at us like we were all that mattered.

While I wanted to dominate her, he wanted to submit, and she wanted both.

I took control, giving her everything she needed and at the same time, grew closer with Shade. My best friend. My partner. My life. Although we were close, there was still a wedge between us.

I was terrified to give him what he needed.

My heart.

-Meadow-

Sunny was intense.

Shade hid.

I was new.

They were in love but wouldn’t admit it.

Guilt resonated on Sunny’s shoulders.

The weight of Shade’s feelings rested on his.

And I was the glue that would bring them together.

But little did I know, that I would end up falling in love.

With both of them.

I was giving this book and this is my honest opinion

Meadow was always looking for something more she’d always wanted more in life especially in the bed room. Her current fling was just to help her friend out so he would leave her relationship alone, and they just both happened to be bored. Once they finally called off their thing her and the girls decided they needed a night out, so they went to this hole in the wall bar and there she seen all the bikes lined up against the building and this one caught her eye she waited until her friends had all gone in before she went over to admire the beautiful machine of horse power and speed. When a man scared her half to death she noticed his gorgeous eyes and that he was half her age but she didn’t care at all. One thing lead to another and Meadow was sitting on his friends lap and they were flirting like crazy all three of them. Magic happened the fates were alined and this trio knew that they were meant to be together they felt it in their heart, body and soul, their sex was rough, hot and sexy as ever. You definitely need to read this book it will have you pulled in and begging or panting for more these three are super hot and work so well together on their roller coaster of a relationship.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Just One Touch (Oh Tequila Series Book 3) by CA Harms


I should have known this would happen…

Nothing about my fraternity was ever simple. Parties, tequila – tons of tequila – and wild souvenirs from our kind of crazy.

Never, and I do mean never, did I expect my brother’s girl to target me in a midnight prank. A prank that backfired and left me squealing in pain.

Have you ever seen those shows, the ones that say the “dirty deed” sent you to the ER? Well, I went to the ER, and yes, my manhood was involved. Let me just say I gained absolutely no pleasure from it. Unless, of course, you consider that sweet nurse who treated me.

The problem? She hated me…and I had no idea why, but I wasn’t willing to let her walk away until I figured it out.

Emelie was feisty, and I’d never felt the type of excitement I did after spending only five seconds in her line of fire. I was gonna enjoy this…way more than I should, and I knew it.

She saw, she conquered, and I was defeated.

All it took was just one touch, and oh, what a ride it was.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

after drinking way to much too much tequila Clayton found himself waking up in the middle of the night having to pee but finding his hands were super glued together. once he figured out how to get outta bed, open the door he next challenge was how was he going to pee so he went to sit down only to get himself pinched between the toilet and the lid and well for a man thats not a good feel and he ended up in the ER. the one nurse he never thought he would see was Emilie and she hated his guts and he had no idea why. Emilie hated most men didnt trust them at all after one night of being a careless college student that night let her to 9 months later having a cute baby boy and basically being on her own with the help of her best friend. after a prank gone off on Clayton he went to the laundry mat to wash his sheets were he came face to face with a cute little guy and then he seen Emilie following him, holy crap she has a kid was all he thought. Does the fact that Emilie has a kid scare Clayton away or does she drop her walls that most men have forced her to build over the past two years to keep herself from getting hurt or even having her son get hurt.

Review by Twinsie Dee

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast

Love me some mermen! I love the premise of this story! Rubi is a hot freaking mess. She is on a singles cruise, gets a bit tipsy, and falls off the ship. She has chalked it that she is going to die. She wakes up in a swanky room with three incredibly handsome men. She thinks she had a crazy one night stand and is still on the cruise ship. Oh the things she feels and how she reacts to finding out that the three handsome men are actually cursed meren….and her mates….and then finding out about her true past! Oh the list goes on and on. She is the hope for these mermen to break the curse and bring life back to their realm. Then she realizes just how comfortable and at home she is. She is to be their queen, but has absolutely no queen-ish mannerisms. She is an absolute riot! Her hunky mermen all have crazy different personalities and each one worships her like the queen that she is. You really get to see their love for each other when other characters are introduced. 

I was immediately sucked in with Rubi and her sarcasm. Then there are the three Z’s (the handsome mermen) and their crazy different personalities with all of their hotness. Smush this all together and you have a wonderful new world, full of intense love, laughter, and some hawt sexy time. Oh, and don’t let me forget the action. There are monsters out there that are full of hatred and nastiness. The battle between good and evil is never ending. I love how this story ended and am looking forward to the next in this series.
