#WOTR23 #Audio #Paranormal #Shifters #SeriesStarter – Accidentally Wolf, Mystic Wolves book 1 by Elle Boon, narration by Mister Plug

Accidentally Wolf (Mystic Wolves Book 1) by [Elle Boon]

For veterinarian Cora Welch, being bitten by a young injured wolf wasn’t the best day of her life, nor the raging fever that followed. However, finding herself faced with a naked man proved even more than she had ever bargained for.

Zayn couldn’t believe what his inner wolf was telling him when he first saw the human doctor Cora, standing in nothing but a towel. The last thing he wanted was a mate, especially an accidental one. And at a time when danger seemed to be coming at the Mystic Pack from an unknown source, it just wasn’t in his plans.

All he had to do was get Cora through the fever, keep her safe from the other pack, and keep his fangs to himself. But nobody told him he’d have to fight a mating urge so strong within himself, that it was a losing battle. Now, he has to explain to Cora that he accidentally marked her for a second time, making her just like him.

Cora knew something was not right in her world the moment she wanted to climb her rescuer like a tree. Hearing Zayn tell her she was now a werewolf, like him and his pack, she realized she now had a home. If her new mate still wanted her after he heard about her family, Cora knew she’d be happy to be an accidental wolf.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

I want to start by saying I LOVE Audio.  However, this narration for this book did not do it for me.  I really enjoyed the story, but I would have loved any other voice.  He just couldn’t manage all the difference voices IMO.  This was the first time I have heard his voice so maybe it is different in other stories.

This is a quick novella about a vet who stumbles into pack lands when she is helping a pack member unbeknownst to her.  Immediately Zayn is all “Mine” over her, but he surely does not want a mate…n thank you.  He surely doesn’t want a skinny thing to boot.  When his brother’s threat to keep his fangs and “member” to himself get forgotten, Zayn and Cora now have to deal with the consequences.

Cora is confused and heartbroken over the things she knows Zayn said about her and the fact he isn’t the most vocal of men.  When she runs, she runs right into trouble.  Zayn and the pack need to find her plus he needs to open up to his “accidental” wolf about things.

The story was sweet and spicey.  I enjoyed the jokes between the brothers.  I liked the family vibe of the pack.  I am VERY interested in book 2 with Naill and what happens to him.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.

I was super excited for this novella.  I know you are supposed to read it first but for me, I read it after the original duet.  For me, it makes more sense.

This book was a great look at Sibby.  We learn about her family and why she is the way she is. We also see her meeting the characters from the main duet.

I do think this could have been part of the Sibby duet but maybe she wasn’t sure  about a Sibby book series??  Anyway, it was a good read if you love Sibby like I loved her.

H. D. Carlton is an International and USA Today Bestselling author. She lives in Ohio with her partner, two dogs, and cat. When she’s not bathing in the tears of her readers, she’s watching paranormal shows and wishing she was a mermaid. Her favorite characters are of the morally gray variety and believes that everyone should check their sanity at the door before diving into her stories.

#Review – White Ibis (Florida Gothic) by Wendy Dalrymple

“Truly terrifying” – Jenna Dietzer, author of “The Lovebugs”
“Creepy as hell” – Sheri L. Williams, author of “Forest of Blood’

Obsession. Lies. Greed.

Chelsea is vain, self-absorbed, and driven in life only by want and her obsession with being the best. Even though she is desperate to portray an outwardly perfect image, things are far from perfect at home.

One day at yoga class, Chelsea meets a woman named Damaris who is exactly like her; beautiful, confident, and reaching high to be her best self. Damaris and Chelsea become instant best friends and bond over healthy eating, fitness, and their love of luxury items. As Chelsea’s heart hardens toward her boyfriend, her obsession with the enigmatic Damaris only blossoms.

As one bad decision turns into another, Chelsea begins to think she is being followed by a white bird. Her new best friend Damaris suggests a girls’ weekend in New Orleans to get away from it all and Chelsea readily agrees. Unfortunately for Chelsea, it soon becomes clear that she can’t run away from her problems and instead finds herself tumbling head-first into a downward spiral

Content Warning: Mentions of suicide and eating disorders.

I just want to start this out by saying that I really have no idea what I just read. But at the same time, I couldn’t stop reading because I had to know what was going on and how this story would end.

Let me preface this by saying that I’m new to reading horror – huge fan of horror movies – but reading horror, hits differently, ya know?

I’ve recently fallen down the horror side of TikTok and after a friend introduced me to horror novellas, I’m quickly becoming obsessed. They are quick little reads, perfect for a busy schedule when you don’t have time to read a ginormous book but still want to get some books added to your reading goal on Goodreads or to just get some words read.

Enough of my rambling. Let’s review:

Chelsea is a thirty-something year old woman who has a deadend job and is also in a deadend relationship. She ends up befriending Damaris, this beautiful woman, who almost seems to good to be true. I didn’t overly trust her. Too many times she hardly ever gave any insight into herself. It felt like she was holding a lot of secrets.

As their friendship grows, which is more like obsession on Chelsea’s part, they decide to take a trip to New Orleans and that’s when the crazy starts. Something is up about the women Chelsea hangs out with that weekend. When she gets home, I read the rest of the book with wide eyes and was like “OMG”.

Something happens to both Chelsea and her boyfriend and obviously I don’t want to give it away but it does leave room for questions. A lot of questions. A part of me wished we could have gotten more answers BUT the horror loving part of me, absolutely loved the open ended ending.

All in all, this was a perfect little read by a new to me author.

#wotr #attendingauthor #standalone Until You (Happily Ever Alpha World) by Samantha Lind

Cameron Burgress was ready for a new start.

New city, new job, and maybe one day, a new love. She just didn’t realize how quickly that could all happen until she walked into a tattoo shop, finally ready to get the ink she’d wanted since her fiancé died, nearly four years ago.

Ethan O’Neill had everything. Until one day, he didn’t.

After an off-ice injury stripped him of his hockey career, he started over in life, pursuing his other passion—tattoos. He’d never been the kind of guy to want to settle down, but that all changed one day, when a knock-out beauty strolled into his shop and into his life.

An instant attraction and a little bit of ink is the perfect mix for two people ready for change.

#WOTR23 #YA #SecretAdmirer #seriesStarter – Dear McKinnon, Love Notes book 1 by Danielle Keil

Dear McKinnon (Love Notes, #1)

Everyone knows what it means to have a teal envelope taped to their locker on the first day of the month.

Everyone except new girl McKinnon Gregory.

The envelope is the start of a monthly tradition called the Secret Admirers, and something McKinnon never thought she’d see.

To her surprise– and everyone else’s– the teal envelope is taped to her locker on March first.

McKinnon only has one month to figure out the clues. But she barely knows anyone, which makes it infinitely harder to determine her secret admirer’s identity.

Will she figure it out before the month’s over?
And if she does, will the guy she’s fallen for through letters be just as amazing in person?



Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

I am going to start this review by saying your girl here doesn’t read YA.  Nothing against it but I just don’t and haven’t in a long long time. However, this author is about the sweetest and most adorable person in the whole dang world.  I was up on all the books I needed to read and said LET’S DO THIS!!!

I purchased this book and dove right in annnnnd I was hooked.  I freaking LOVED IT!!  I thought the premise of the series was cute and totally enjoyed the “new girl” getting the first letter.

McKinnon/Macks was the new girl who pretty much kept to herself and kept her head down.  She was quiet, shy and totally the book nerd you picture.  She is like WHUUUU when she is given the first letter.  Her bestie Skye was cracking me up.  She was so funny and totally what I would have been like through the process.

The story is sweet and the fact Macks and “Charlie” start to form a great letter friendship that turns to trusting friendship and then a possible romantic relationship.  Loved it!!  I had to admit I was going between 2 guys on the story.  I wasn’t totally sure who the guy was and when it was revealed…my heart was skipping beats.  I mean this was it.  That was the time for Macks to decide what she does….does she accept him or not???

Seriously I enjoyed the story 110%.  I will be picking up the others and reading when I can because I want to see Spencer’s book!!

#wotr #attendingauthor #standalone Disassembled Creatures by Albany Walker 

It all started with a game. 

It was supposed to be fun, a night with friends. No one was supposed to die, but that’s not what happened. 

There’s a killer on the loose. People I know are dying, and I think I might be next. 

We called the boogeyman, and he answered. 

Disassembled Creatures is a standalone novella intended for mature audiences 



Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Lethe and her friends wanted to have a little fun, well 2 of the 4 wanted to have some fun so they brought out a Ouija board after all its just a game nothing bad can happen right. Well, they were all very wrong, after one of the girls started calling upon spirit crazy things start to happen, Lethe had, had enough of this game and thinking that 2 of the girls planned this all out to scare the crap out of her and it was working grabbing her other friend she heads for the door and when she’s at her car she notices a shadow in the window upstairs and then the door closing without anyone touching it. Well, the next day she finds out 1 girl was dead and the other wasn’t going to make it. All because of a game the boogeyman has come to play and he wants her, but why does he want Lethe and will she figure it out or will he catch her by surprise. In this lesson never mess with the spirit world and leave the Ouija boards alone, will Lethe make it out of this nightmare come to life alive or will someone be contacting her spirit with a Ouija board in the future? Wow wow wow wow, I could not put this book down Albany has done it again just when I didn’t think I could love her words anymore she writes another amazing story. This book will have you on the edge of your seat and gripping the pages to turn them faster and faster, so many twist that you won’t see coming.

Albany lives in Michigan where she’s happily married to her high school sweetheart. She spends most of her time juggling her four children’s extracurricular activities, with her nose stuck in a book. When not reading you can find her writing her very own book boyfriends. Albany’s passion is writing romance with real characters that are far from perfect, but always seem to find their own happily ever afters. 

#NewRelease #releaseday #Rockers #novella #DoubleReview- Just What I Needed, Stage Dive book 4.9 by Kylie Scott

Just What I Needed (Stage Dive, #4.9)

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kylie Scott comes a story in her Stage Dive series…

When the Stage Dive crew decides to help, they do it in a big way.

Nanny and housekeeper Jude has been going through a dry patch. Getting ready to dip her toes back into the dating pool is a little nerve racking. And the offers of assistance from her boss, David Ferris, and his band are not helping. Right up until music producer Dean Jennings arrives to work on the band’s latest album.

But Dean is more than a little wary of dating anyone with anything to do with the Stage Dive crew after losing Lena to lead singer Jimmy Ferris all those years ago. Can Jude a) Convince the crew to stay out of her business and b) Woo the man of her dreams?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**



Review by Twinsie Angie

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

For all of us Stage Dive fans, this novella was a great look back into our favorite band and family.  Ev and David’s nanny, Jude, is the main female in this story along with Lena’s ex/Jimmy’s rival for her attention, Dean.  Now we all love Dean and felt bad for him, so I was happy to see him get an HEA along with Jude.

Jude and Dean find each other sharing space at Ev and David’s guest house.  She is stunned stupid at how beautiful and nice he is.  He seems a bit smitten by the crazy woman in fuzzy socks.  When the ladies essentially force Jude to admit what she was feeling, they of course, decide to help. LOL  Poor Jude.

The novella is a quick read into Jude and Dean facing a lot of issues like super model ex’s, super fans, and some old school teenage crush issues.  Serious the epilogue had me laughing so hard.  I love this group and this novella makes me what to reread the series again.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

I love anytime I can get a Stage Dive book in my hands.  I love all these characters and enjoy seeing them all again. This quick little read is about Dean and Jude.

Jude is Ev and David’s nanny who stays in the guest house. Dean who is Stage Dive’s record producer is also staying in the guest house for a bit. Jude is attracted to Dean but leery of pursuing Dean because of the connection to her boss. Dean is also leery of getting with Jude after loosing Lena. They have an instant attraction that even with them being cautious they feel the pull to one another. Once the Stage Dive crew sees the attraction between Dean and Jude all bets are off to get these two together.

I enjoyed seeing Dean and Jude getting to know each other. There is a bit of drama but it is short lived. Not sure I would handle things as Jude did if someone came in unannounced and ate my dinner.  JUST Saying.  She is such a better woman than I am. I enjoyed seeing Mal and Anne, Ev and David, Lena and Jimmy and getting more of a glimpse of their lives. I love this Series so much.

Kylie is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today best-selling, Audie Award winning Romance author.

#WOTR23 #IntaLove #Sexy #Novella – The Virgin and the Lumberjacks by Sophie Stern

The Virgin and the Lumberjacks by [Sophie Stern]

I didn’t want to go to the family reunion.

I didn’t want to drive home through the mountains.

I didn’t want to get stuck in a snowstorm.

But that’s exactly what happened.

When the lumberjacks find me trapped in my car, they do more than just save me. Eli and Keagan offer me a place to stay. They give me food. They keep me safe.

But they can’t protect my heart.

Not from this.

**The Virgin and the Lumberjacks is a standalone short romance with a HEA. Originally published in 2017, this story was called Take Your Time. Although the original story remains the same, this book has been updated and expanded by the author.**


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

SOPHIE!!  GIRL!!!  THIS BOOK!!!  OMG!!  Lemme finish cooling myself off from this novella.

YA’LL This story is a quick and steamy read about Melody who has a shit family.  I mean dang they are pretty awful people.  Straight up awful humans.   She has had enough and leaves the party.  She gets stuck thanks to a snowstorm in the mountains but is rescued by Eli and his brother Keagan.  They are hotties who area also billionaires who spend their free time-sharing women looking for THE ONE.

The men are enthralled by Melody.  She is perfectly curvy, drama free, brave, and willing to take them on.  Eli and Keagan are so happy with the little lady they are nervous for rejection after the weekend of “snuggle time”.

This book was just a great, naughty read but leaves you super happy for all the characters I the end.
