Trusting You (The Sutter Family #2)

I had a plan… Go to college, get good grades, start fresh. I knew I’d have a clean slate, and I could be anyone. I was right on track until I spent the summer with my roommate, Emma.

Aaron Sutter was everything I told myself to stay away from… a player, smooth talker, and sexy as hell. He was not part of the plan. Girls fought for just a minute of his attention, and would pretty much do anything to get it. I swore I would never be one of them, but Aaron and my heart had other plans.

It’s funny how the heart works. It doesn’t see the pain coming its way. It doesn’t understand that one moment could change everything. One crack could destroy the very foundation that it’s balancing on. Aaron was that crack for me. He pushed inside, wrapping himself around my soul and never letting go. I wanted to let him in, but was he ready for the past I worked so hard to escape from?

Trusting you is the second book in The Sutter Family series.

Trusting You by H D’Agostino

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

Oh man oh man!!  Aaron, Aaron, Aaron!!  The player got tamed for sure in this book.

In Em’s book we see Aaron and Mel getting a close.  Mel is warned that Aaron isn’t a settle down kinda guy but Mel just can’t turn away until…….well if you read the 1st book then  you know what he did.  *Shakes my finger at Aaron*

Aaron is the god time guy.  He loves his role as the hot lifeguard.  He gets any girl he wants but he is drawn to Mel for some reason.  When he screws up, he is desperate to find a way AKA Beg Em and Brock for help to get his girl.

Mel was devastated by what Aaron did to her and will not fall for ANOTHER player.  She puts up a lot of walls because players have ruined her life and she will not fall for that line again.  Mel is dedicated to school and her family at home.  She loves Em but she has a big secret that she keeps close.  She has to graduate.  She has to take care of her and her business.

When Aaron starts to beg and grovel, Mel begins to crack.  She wants to have what he might actually be offering but when Aaron lays his cards out on the table, Mel flips out!!!

When the secrets are told and the revelations are made, we see our couple come to THE make or break point!!

The epilogue was great…..the build-up for Ryan’s book looks awesome.  But there was one little scene in the epilogue that made my heart beat a bit.  When Aaron realizes all that Cam did for him out of love…sigh………yeah I loved that guy even more.

I totally loved seeing the “old gang” for the Shattered series.  They are still keeping it lively in the bedroom much to their children’s distain…LOL  Sorry not sorry Aaron!!

#WOTR18 #Review #MC #Military Rust (King’s Harlots 6) by JM Walker

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

His demons are loud.
Held captive within his mind, he does everything he can to forget his life before Vice-One.
As one of the newest recruits, his main goal is to have his “brothers” trust him and he’ll do just about anything to make that happen. Until one passionate night with Creena Chan, the military was all he had.

She’s hiding from her past.
A trained professional, she keeps that part of her life to herself. The darkness weighs heavily on her chest, mixing with the beats of her heart, caused by the one man she tries to ignore. Vincent Stone is nothing like she imagined. Months of flirting lead to an explosion she never saw coming.

Only when Creena and Stone’s limits are tested, do they realize exactly what they will do to find that peace their family and friends deserve

 

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

So, we have come to the end of the King’s Harlots Series, so sad. This series has had it all, a cool women’s mc, hot alpha military guy, a scary AF human trafficking ring, and lets not forget the suspense of finding out just who is behind said ring. Now, onto Rust!!
All the men from Vice-One are Uber alpha, my favorite so far has been Coby Porter from Rude, but now I want to be the meat in a Coby Porter and Vincent Stone sandwich!!!!!!
Holy moly did Walker have me hot to trot with Stone. He’s relatively new to the Vice-One team, but just like the rest of them he’s military, alpha, and he’s also got secrets.
Creena Chan; member of King’s Harlots, nurse, and a lady with one hell of a secret of her own.
Creena and Stone have always been flirty friends, but have never crossed that line until they wake up in bed together hungover and that my friends is the start of a HOT, steamy, complicated relationship.
Walker wraps up this series in a neat little bow, but we all know that while bows look neat, making them takes lots of twist and turns and things that come out of nowhere. What I mean is I never saw the secrets and the players that came out in this book coming and Walker did a great job of between keeping me on edge with suspense and keeping me on edge with the super hot scenes with Stone and Creena.
Even though the series has ended I would love to catch a glimpse of the gang in the future.

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

NOOOOOO!!  The series is over…NOOOOOOOOOOO!!  I remember when JM said to me “Hey I have this crazy idea” and BOOM the Kings Harlots were formed.

I have been looking forward to Stone because he seems so delicious and I just knew he would be a good alpha.  Let’s be honest, all of the Vice-One guys have been uber alpha but Stone…yeah the quiet ones you gotta watch out for.  HELLO Coby!!!  LOL

Creena has been the Harlot that you knew had to be “more than……” she just seems to KNOW stuff so her back story was AMAZING!!  I was totally blown away by what we learn and about how it all plays into the bad guys AKA The Organization.

The book tied up everything for us the reader as to the who and the why’s of the bad guys.  We also get a lot of twists and turns because let’s face it, that is what JM does…TWISTS US ALL UP!!!  We are a bit anxious about secrets that are spilled and how our characters will react.

We also get a lot of naughty, sexy time between our characters and again…THAT IS A JM SPECIALITY!!!  She can write some of the hottest stuff and then your like DANG get me some cold water to drink!!!! *fans self*  There are soooo many scenes that were amazing between Stone and Creena but one scene is particular sticks with me because we can see our couple bantering and talking about serious issues.  The trust and mutual respect they both have for each other knowing what they know about the other….yeah made my heart bust with love for them.

So if you have loved this series, then this book is a fantastic final installment.  The epilogue is so perfect.  I mean it really hits the nail on the head.  We get to see our characters enjoying the lives they have built and the families they have created!!

PS I can totally see JM revisiting this series to maybe write about the kids?????  HRMMMM  Maybe???

#WOTR18 #Review #NewRelease #Shifters #Book3 – Sterling, Black Mountain Pack Book 3 by Miranda Lynn @MirandaLynnBks


Sterling (Black Mountain Pack #3)

Feeling the need for a change, fox-shifter, Sterling accepts a mission in Texas to help a struggling pack’s club. The situation is worse than they thought when they arrive but when Sterling meets Reana he know he’s found he’s been given a second chance to have a mate . Too bad she doesn’t want one.

Reana is one of the few in her pack not effected by the black magic affecting them. When Sterling came to town, she thought he’d be the answer to their problems with the Resistance. She wasn’t expecting a possessive mate ready to settle down just when she’s ready to take off.

Time is running out and Sterling needs Reana’s help to save the pack before they’re forever trapped in this web of magic wreaking havoc on all their lives. But Reana isn’t sure she can accept fate and her mate, just as she’s ready to leave pack life behind for a life of solitude. Will Sterling change her mind and get his second chance? Or will Reana’s strong will keep them both from the happiness they deserve?

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

Sterling the Fox has been someone yummy I have wanted to read about, so I was excited to sit and devour this book.  I liked the story because our pack is a very well-known pack full of goodness and willingness to help others yet not take any crap from others.  They openly allow other species to live together in harmony.

Reana and her pack are a hot mess.  Her pack Alpha was murdered essentially, and she is stuck in this oppressive world with no hope or prospects.  When these new shifters show up, even though her fox is nipping at her to run and claim her male, Sterling, she won’t.  She is afraid of the consequences for mating or loving another.

I enjoyed the story and the who and why of the evil in Reana’s pack.  Sterling and his friends are bound and determined to help these people because they can TELL everything is not as it seems.  The twists and turns plus the introduction of one of our favorite villains is great!    The story between Sterling and Rea was great too.  Sterling is an older, mature fox so he knows that Rea needs time and patience before she can and will accept his claim in her.  The couple have a lot of issues to deal with to be together because she is not allowed to mate or suffer for going against her Alpha!!!

I soooo want to have a book on Wyatt and if I ant have his then can I please have one on Steven next.  Those two males….heart is so interested in them.  They are both males of extreme worth but so quiet.

Mother to two boys, 3 four legged babies, and wife to a loving husband who doesn’t mind the extra voices in her head. Miranda grew up on a dairy farm in Illinois, but calls Portland, TN home now. She is an avid reader, coffee addict, and loves her day job working at the local public library. Though her true passion is in creating her own worlds, characters, and stories for her readers.

My review of these 10 awesome authors

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I need to get my motor running.
Literally.
All I want is to learn how to build engines,
Cars, motorcycles–anything.
You name it; I want to feel it rev in my hands.
Fabricate it into something mine,
Bend it to my will,
Create what hasn’t been built before.

But nobody takes me seriously,
And I’m no damsel in distress.
I can and will get my hands dirty,
Very dirty.

And now, I have that chance,
Working with Jesse Valentine,
Top motorcycle and hot rod fabricator.
But he’s got a reputation for more,
Much more.

After all, he’s nothing but a cocky,
Overinflated jerk,
And I’m just interested in mechanics,
Cold, hard, machines.
I was born to bend, build, create,
And I won’t change for anyone,
Not even him.

 

My 5 star Review

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.

Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.

 

My 5 star review

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They say first impressions mean everything. Either Maximus “Max” Gunn didn’t get the memo or he didn’t care. The gorgeous, muscle-bound Dominant’s assumption that I, Mistress Sammie, was a submissive set my blood boiling. I wanted to drive the toe of my coveted Louis Vuitton stilettos between his legs—and bring him to his knees.

But anger wasn’t the only burning emotion Max ignited inside me. The potent sexual attraction we share threatened to burn me alive, too. Unwilling to cede our Dominance, the battle for control raged like a third world war, both in and out of the dungeon. It would take a coup d’état for love to conquer our drive to command.

But when Max learns the secrets of my past, and attempts to heal my scars, I don’t know if I’ll be able to still the battle…or fall willingly to my knees.

 

My review of this WOTR Author

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He doesn’t remember.
In the beginning, women and alcohol were one in the same. Until he met her.
The pain and heartache he caused her died when he was shot and fell into a coma.
Waking up is the only way he can get back to Maxine Stanton while she does everything she can to push him away.

She hates him.
Every fiber of her being loathes the man she fell in love with but she can’t control her heart and wants him just the same.
When Dale Michaels finally wakes up, she realizes they need to end this once and for all, before it destroys them both.

When an unexpected source rips through what they’ve worked hard to maintain, only then do they realize the full potential of their love.

 

My review of this WOTR Author

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***TRIGGER WARNING: This is a MAFIA romance. In addition to several scenes with strong sexual content, there are also scenes involving violence, death, gun play, mention of sexual abuse, and adult language. Due to the nature of this book, it is intended for 18+ audiences only***

My name is Dash.

The Vitaliev Bratva had always been a part of my life, but I was never a part of it. My father built it from the ground up, and while he never hid what the family business was, he never wanted my life to be tainted by it.

But my father forgot one thing.

I’m also a Vitaliev.

Everything I hold dear has been targeted since my father’s death—my business, my friends, and the peaceful world I’ve built for myself. But it wasn’t until the love of my life, Polo Scorpeone, was struck down by a sniper’s bullet that I realized being a Vitaliev isn’t a curse. It’s a strength.

I will face my hidden enemy with the Vitaliev fire of old, and I’ll do it with the most powerful lethal weapon Chicago’s underworld has ever known by my side.

Come to find out, the legendary Scorpio is hard to kill.

The riotously funny debut from the drinking star with a YouTube problem.

Since launching her YouTube channel “You Deserve a Drink” in 2011, comedian Mamrie Hart has built an intensely devoted following of more than half a million viewers. Like her bawdy and bacchanalian show, Hart’s eponymous debut pays tribute to her boozy misadventures with an original cocktail recipe accompanying each hilarious tale. From the “Leaves of Three Martini,” commemorating the hookup to whom she accidentally gave poison ivy, to the “Bizzargarita,” in honor of the time she and a friend were approached by two uber-Republican couples who wanted to “swing” while on vacation in Mexico, You Deserve a Drink is as useful as it is entertaining.

The Montgomery Ink series by NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues when the final Denver Montgomery sibling refuses to fall for his brother’s former flame—the company’s new plumber.

Wes Montgomery watched his entire family fall in love, and now finds himself ready to settle down. Except the one person he seems to find chemistry with is not only his twin’s ex, she also works for Montgomery Inc. But when the two find themselves in one compromising situation after another, Wes realizes he’s having second thoughts about the dynamic woman who’s burst her way into his life. Sure she sets off his temper, but she also makes him hot in every other way possible.

Jillian Reid never loved her best friend like everyone thought she should, so she pushed him away so he could have his future. Now, despite fighting it, she finds herself attracted to the one man she shouldn’t. When her father’s health takes a turn for the worse, and a danger no one saw coming show its face, she’s forced to turn to Wes for help. The two of them have fought off their attraction long enough, and each cave to the desire. But this enemies-to-lovers tale might have an ending no one ever dreamed of.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TRIGGER WARNING: This book contains flashbacks of violence and drug abuse, and the impact of these factors on family members. If you have issues with these elements, this book is not for you.

Chicago’s premiere tattoo studio, House Of Payne, is across the street from the Mad Cow diner, but it might as well be on another planet as far as waitress Paradise Simone is concerned. She’s a good girl from Waukegan with a past she’d rather forget, and a future that goes only as far as the next day. What does she know about superstars and paparazzi?

But Pari does know danger when she sees it, and tattooist Max Kulagin has it written all over him. A proper Waukegan girl should know to steer well clear, but she can’t resist Max when he leaves beautiful, intimate art sketched out on cheap diner napkins.

Beautiful, intimate art…of her.

Max knows ugliness. He was born in it. Raised in it. Had it shoved down his throat every goddamn day. So when he stumbles across true beauty, he worships it. There’s a deep sensuality in the waitress who likes to suck on her pen whenever he’s around, and he’s just the man to bring that beauty out in her. She might be a lady in the street, but one look at Pari tells him she’s going to be a freak in the bed.

And in the shower.

And while he’s driving with her head going to town in his lap.

The life Max leads might be in the spotlight, but it’s Pari who gets caught in the glare. When her past catches up to her, it’s her life that holds all the excitement, and not in a good way. But there’s no force on earth that can take Max’s beautiful Paradise away now that he’s finally found it.

#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Whiskey Secrets (Whiskey and Lies Book 1) by Carrie Ann Ryan

Sparks fly between a former cop-turned-bartender and his new innkeeper in the first installment of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Dare Collins is a man who knows his whiskey and women—or at least that’s what he tells himself. When his family decides to hire on a new innkeeper for the inn above his bar and restaurant, he’s more than reluctant. Especially when he meets the new hire. But he’ll soon find that he has no choice but to work with this city girl and accept her new ideas and the burning attraction between them.

Kenzie Owens left her old life and an abusive relationship behind her—or so she thought. She figures she’ll be safe in Whiskey, Pennsylvania but after one look at her new boss, Dare Collins, she might still be in danger, or at least her heart. And when her past catches up with her despite her attempts to avoid it, it’s more than her heart on the line. This time, it might mean her life.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.

First of all let me say that Ryan had me crying from the acknowledgments. I knew this release was going to be hard for her being the first without her beloved Dr. Hubby and I know she wanted to do him proud, but she has no worries there, I believe he would be extremely proud of her.
Second, Yay for Tabby’s brothers getting a series!!!
Dare is the middle of Collins brothers and owner of the Old Whiskey Bar and Restaurant. He is a man that runs his business, broods about his past, and lives for his weekends with his son. When his parents, who run the inn above his restaurant, tell the family that they are hiring a new innkeeper so that they can retire he gets even more brooding,
Kenzie Owens is the new innkeeper hired by the Owen’s family. She is starting a new life in a new town, a doing her best not to think about her old life, but her old life won’t leave her alone.
Dare is a bit of a jerk when they first are introduced, not that he really means to be. He is a man that doesn’t do change well and his parents just sprung hiring a new innkeeper on the family, so he’d have been a jerk to anyone really. He also is having a hard time with only getting his son one weekend a month.
Kenzie is attracted to Dare, and he to her, but is bound and determined not to let a man in her life again. These two just can’t help themselves and decide to get together and not put labels or anything on it, just take it day by day.
I love that Ryan always writes about her couples in situations that are totally real; they don’t just take one look at each other, fall in love and live happily ever after, there is screw ups, hard work, and forgiveness just like in real life.
Ryan also does a good job of letting us know more about Loch and Fox Collins too and we get to here from Tabby!!
I really was happy with the start of the Collin’s boys and I look forward to seeing more of them.

#Review #Shifter The Blackstone Dragon Heir (Blackstone Moutain Book 1) by Alicia Montgomery

Featuring the story of Matthew Lennox, son of Henry and Riva Lennox from “The Last Blackstone Dragon”

The Blackstone Mountain Series begins with dragon shifter Matthew Lennox, as he tries to woo the mysterious new girl who arrives in Blackstone.

Catherine Archer is running away from her past and those trying to hurt her. She knows she needs to keep her head down and falling for a dragon shifter isn’t exactly keeping a low profile. She needs to resist him, for his and her sake, but can she ignore her heart?

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Oh I love a good shifter romance and Montgomery has written a good one once again. We have it all in this book: Russian criminals, a fire breathing dragon, a broody lion, a mysterious woman, and hot sex!!!
Matthew Lennox is the newly appointed CEO of the Lennox Corporation, he is also the oldest of the Lennox children and a dragon shifter, he is also the workaholic of the twins and a dragon shifter.
Catherine Archer is a bartender at The Den, a bar in Blackstone which is a shifter town. She is on the run and not looking for anything.
When Matthew is dragged to The Den by his brothers and cousin he is immediately attracted to Catherine from across the room and doesn’t know why. He goes back to see her again because he can’t keep her off his mind, he sits and drinks becoming more mad as men keep flirting with her. LOL!!! His Dragon only wants her and has since the moment he spotted her.
When he saves her from some drunks after work he actually gets to talk with her and has the shock of his life when she can do something that no one outside his family and do.
Yes, they get together fast in this story but just like any other shifter story when you find your mate you just can’t wait. That is one thing that with shifter stories I just love.
Catherine and Matthew are a great couple and when Catherine stops fighting herself she can see it too.
Jason, Matthew’s twin, his book is going to be a doozy and I can’t wait to see him get his!!

#REVIEW – In The Moment: Part Three (An Erotic Menage Romance Short Story) (Moments Book 3) by Rachael Orman

Ace managed to burn bridges with both Adam and Alicia. Adam doesn’t even want to speak to him while Alicia doesn’t know what she wants. Both Ace and Adam know they have a lot to work through if they are going to be able to make their part of the relationship work—with or without Alicia.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I have to say that this one is my favourite out of the series so far. After that crazy debacle of the video of an intimate moment being shared, Ace completely lost and didn’t care about anyone but himself when it came to his reactions over said video.

He works hard to make Adam and Alicia forgive him and after working through his problems with Adam, he basically worried for nothing.

Alicia felt left out of their little makeup session. She didn’t know what was going on and felt out of the loop. So when they come crawling back to her, she definitely didn’t take it how they expected.

#REVIEW – In The Moment: Part Two (An Erotic Menage Romance Short Story) (Moments Book 2) by Rachael Orman

Ace has been ignoring Adam. Adam is determined to force him to show his hand by hitting on Alicia, the bartender Ace can’t keep his eyes off. When Ace finds out Adam is interested in Alicia on his own, he is ever the more determined to make their threesome work.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Once again, we find Ace, Adam and Alicia together. Adam and Ace are trying to pursue Alicia into spending a night with them but I don’t think it’ll just be a one time thing.

Sparks fly and Alicia eventually agrees. All thanks to Adam and his swooniness.

But of course, Ace is still closed off about making his sexuality known, so he keeps Adam a secret. Unfortunately for them, I don’t think that will stay a secret for long.

These books only get hotter and hotter. I enjoy the three of them together and can’t wait to see how they work through some hopefully minor issues.

#REVIEW – In The Moment: Part One (An Erotic Menage Romance Short Story) (Moments Book 1)

Alicia knows Ace as the hard, tattooed biker who frequents the bar she works at. So when she finds him locked in a compromising position with another man, she is shocked to discover he’s not who she thought he was.

Brushing off all Ace’s behavior has become second nature, until he makes advances toward her. Alicia gives in, not knowing where her desires will take her.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

So yeah, this one was fun.

Ace is a biker and has to keep up that biker ruse but secretly, he’s all about Adam and then some. Their scenes together were explosive hot. And then comes Alicia. Adam has a plan and wants them both together. Not sure if Adam or Alicia will go for it but I’m excited to find out.

Alicia is a bartender at the bar that Ace frequents a lot. Their chemistry is explosive.

And then there is Adam. Oh Adam. I’m excited to see what more will happen in this hot little short series. If you want a quick read, these are for you. Definitely kept me turning my pages.
