From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a new story in her Montgomery Ink series…

Back in Denver, Abby lost everything she ever loved, except for her daughter, the one memory she has left of the man she loved and lost. Now, she’s moved next to the Montgomerys in Colorado Springs, leaving her past behind to start her new life.

One step at a time.

Ryan is the newest tattoo artist at Montgomery Ink Too and knows the others are curious about his secrets. But he’s not ready to tell them. Not yet. That is…until he meets Abby.

Abby and Ryan thought they had their own paths, ones that had nothing to do with one another. Then…they took a chance.

On each other.

One night at a time.

**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.*

 

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

Abby lost the love of her life too soon, they didn’t get to get married and he didn’t get to see their child born.  Yet, she knows he’s still there and does her best to instill in their daughter the love that he had for her.  She is moving on with her life of running her business and raising her daughter and is slowly learning that is ok to ask for help. Well, slowly learning because the Montgomery family has added her to their ever growing brood and telling her daily that it’s ok. Lol

Ryan, is a artist at Montgomery Ink Too.  He has a hard time letting anyone in too, but for a totally different reason.  He is attracted to Abby, but will never act on it if he has his way.

You can’t stop fate though.

Ryan has once again shows us why she is a great author by giving us a couple with real world issues, instead of a couple who just has no problems what so ever, have a great love and live happily ever after.  Abby and Ryan want each other and have to deal with their obstacles before they can.

She also shows us that family is not always about the blood that runs through your veins, but about the love that is in your heart and that is what the Montgomery family is all about.

#WOTR2019 #Review #Paranormal. The Vampire’s Genie (The Wish Series Book 1) by Teresa Gabelman

The Vampire's Genie (The Wish Series Book 1)

One would think most genies have it made, but that’s not the case for Janelle. She hates the outfit, hates the lamp, and overall hates the gig. It’s not until hot vampire Dean Frye steals her out from under her current master’s nose that she thinks maybe being a genie has its benefits.

Dean has one thing and one thing only on his mind when he sends his friend on a quest to seek out a genie lamp. Freedom. Plain and simple. Then he meets Janelle, his genie, and realizes that granting every wish her heart desires is the only wish he wants.

Goodreads

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

Dean Frye  is a vampire that no longer wishes to be one.  He feels he has seen and done all that he can and wishes to be free from his immortal prison.   Castel is his half-breed friend/employee that he had procure a genie lamp, Reed is a human employee/friend that has the jokes, is always a hair away from getting his self killed with his mouth and they all live together.

Janelle is a genie that hates being a genie, has served thousands of masters, and now her Master is the hottie Dean.

Ok, first off all I can think is Teresa needs to add a character named Sam to go along with Dean and Castel, because Hello Supernatural!!! Lol!!!  Second, one look at Janelle has Dean changing his mind about no longer being immortal, love love at first sight and third its is always great when the hero/heroine have something in common and these two hated their lot in life finding each other changes things.

Vampire’s Genie is a short little read with lots of humor, a few vamps, and more than one genie.

If you are looking for something light after a heavy read than this one might be for you.

#REVIEW – Judge by Alexa Riley

Nora Vaughn is living on the streets and trying to keep under the radar. Luck is on her side one day when the hot stranger she’s been watching drops his keycard and she’s able to get into a safe place. What she doesn’t expect is for him to find her naked in the shower and demanding she repay what she’s stolen.

Smith Prescott is a well-known judge who has worked his entire life to build a reputation. But one look at the young woman in front of him and he’s willing to throw it all away to have her. She’s forcing his hand and his iron will to do the things he’s sworn against. But what’s the point of having all this power if he can’t use it to have her?

Warning: This is quick and dirty and dripping with filth. If you love our books Coach, Mechanic, Thief, and Kingpin, then this one will give you all the feels you’re after. Enjoy some quality time in the judge’s chambers.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Well that was funny, dirty and hot. Oh so hot.

Nora has a skeeze for an uncle and gets placed in his care after her father dies. But he wants a little more than to just be her uncle. Nora finally escapes his ways and meets Smith after spending time at the gym he frequents.

The attraction is real, raw and powerful. He instantly finds the need to protect her and make her his.

Smith tries to hold back his need for Nora but of course, we all know that doesn’t last long.

Read this short little hottie to find out what happens when he finally lets his control down.

#REVIEW – The Glue (Taboo Treat) by K Webster

From USA Today Bestselling Author K Webster, comes a new MMF standalone novel!

I’m a fixer. A lover. Always searching for the right fit. And I come up empty every time.

My desires are unusual.
I don’t feel whole until I’m in the middle, holding it all together.
Which makes having a romantic relationship really difficult.

Until them. Two people. An unraveling marriage. Love on the rocks. And they want me. To put them back together again.

Problem is, once they’re fixed, where does that leave me? I sure as hell hope I stick like glue.

***This story is MMF.***

Twinsie Jo’s Review

This book is short but steamy. So passionate and everything you could want in a romance. Although I wanted more because who wouldn’t from this threesome? The author, wrapped it up nicely in a pretty little naughty bow.

With a broken marriage and a guy who’s looking for someone, anything, the three of them work perfectly together. Sparks, lust and more, it’s the perfect amount of chemistry and I couldn’t ask for better.

Although, I could always ask for more, I’ll just continue reading the other little treats that this author puts out.

#REVIEW – Dirty (A Real Man, #8) by Jenika Snow

I’m going to show her how good it can be to get dirty…

JOSEPHINE

Moving to a small town for a new job was the only thing I should be focused on. But the first time I see Gabe, all of that goes out the window. He’s the owner of a garage in the town I now call home, and picturing the filthy things he’d do to me with those grease-stained hands fills my head.

The way he looks at me makes me feel like a woman, like he’s undressing me with his eyes … like he could teach me a thing or two about what a real man does with a woman in his bed.

I don’t care if being with him is fast or sudden. I want him to devour me.

GABE

The first time I lay eyes on Josephine, I know she’ll be mine.

I won’t stop until she is.

I want to get my dirty hands all over her. I want to make that creamy pale skin of hers dark from grease, and red from holding onto her.

And I’ll do all of that, because there’s no way I’m backing off, not until I know I have her.

Warning: You like filthy and insta-love? Well, this story is full of it. If you’re into a hero who knows how to handle his woman, and a heroine who’s all about tall, dark, and dirty, you better hang on because this story will most definitely give you whiplash.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Greasy mechanic. Innocent woman who’s new to town. What more could you ask for? Oh yes. Gabe is quite delicious and also super manly and alpha in the way that he wants Josephine. And of course, she wants him just the same and just as bad.

Instant love. Instant lust. Instant everything. These hot little stories have everything you could ask for all packed into 30k words or so. Lots of steam. A man who worships his woman and is proud to show it and her off.

#REVIEW – Feral (A Real Man, #7) by Jenika Snow

She’s about to find out exactly how much he wants her…

LEXI

I’ve been fascinated with him for years.

He’s wild and lives alone, and everyone has been smart enough to keep their distance.

Except me, that is.

Until now.

I see something in him that I see in myself, and I want to explore that. He’s untamed and raw, and maybe dangerous.

But that’s exactly what I need.

It’s what I want.

DILLON

She shouldn’t have come to me, but now that she’s here, I can’t let her go.
I don’t do well around others, so going off the grid has been for the best.

What Lexi doesn’t know is that I’ve noticed her for years and wanted her as mine for just as long. It would be safer if I kept her at a distance, which I’ve managed to do … but I can’t anymore.

I won’t.

I hope she’s ready to be mine, because she’s about to see exactly how feral I can be where it concerns her.

Warning: This book is wild and dirty, short and smutty. Sure, it’s unbelievable, and features a celibate recluse who will make the woman he wants his at all costs, but who doesn’t like it that way? If you are into an over the top alpha hero, and some filthy goodness, dive in.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

I am obsessed with these short little reads that takes like an hour to read only cause I read extremely slow. These are a nice break between super long books or if you just want to curl up with a glass of wine, have a bath and read some super sexy words.

Dillon is feral. Literally. The title of the book says it all. Everyone in town is scared of him while Lexi isn’t. She sees something in him that she needs. Something that a part of her understands. She’s latched onto him and wants him just as much as he wants her.

When they finally admit their feelings for each other, passion ignites and lust explodes. It’s fun. It’s short. And it’s hot. It’s everything I need in this little books in between my own writing. Now onto the next one!

#REVIEW – Arrogant (A Real Man, 6) by Jenika Snow

Even a bad boy can wear a suit and tie…

NOAH

All it took was one look at Harley to know I wanted her.

It wasn’t about the deliberate sexual dry spell I was going through either … the one I voluntarily participated in. No, there was something about her innocence and her vulnerability that had possessiveness running through my veins.

I wanted her as mine, and I’d have her. I’d show her that although I could be cruel to those who went up against me, when it came to her, I’d make the world bow down at her feet.

HARLEY

The position I had been offered was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but it also came with working for a man who had the most notorious reputation in the city.

Noah Wright was anything but Mr. Right, especially not with his arrogant, unforgiving, and tyrannical attitude. He was wealthy and gorgeous, but he struck fear into people with just a look. They knew who held the power when he was in the room. So did I.

And I was now working for him and getting an up-close-and-personal experience with his cold, hardened, and abrasive personality … and it turned me on.

But there was something else under the frigid demeanor he showed everyone, a slice of warmth he showed only me. I knew if Noah wanted me, he could easily have me, because putting up a fight was not what I planned on doing.

I wanted him, but I wouldn’t be just a conquest.

Warning: Love insta-everything in a book? Like over-the-top sugary goodness? Want your stories dripping with cocky and possessive alpha heroes who only want one woman? Get a fan and a cold glass of water ready, because this story will definitely heat you up.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Oh now this is what I’m talking about. I have an obsession with powerful dark brooding grumpy alphas. Noah is a highly successful business man who falls instantly for his new intern. And wow. The sparks that fly are something else. And when they finally do their thing?? Holy moly! *fans self*

Harley becomes an intern at Noah’s company and although he makes her nervous, she’s attracted to him.

This book is instant everything that I love and so hot. It’s definitely my favourite so far in the Real Man series.

#REVIEW – Roommate (A Real Man, 5) by Jenika Snow

BRENDAN

I’ve done pretty damn well in hiding my feelings for her over the years, but having Meghan under the same roof as me, and only feet from my bed makes it hard to control myself.

The truth is when it comes to Meghan I don’t want to practice self-control. I love her.

MEGHAN

I’ve known him nearly my whole life. He’s cocky, gets under my skin, but is gorgeous and caring, too. And as much as I want to say it doesn’t affect me, I’d be lying.

The truth is I love him, and I don’t know if that’ll end up destroying me.

BRENDAN

She needed a place to stay, and now she’s got a roommate … me. But I’m about to show her that I want more than a friendly arrangement. Too much time has passed, and I’m done waiting. I’m ready to step up and be a man.

I’ve never been good at sharing, and when it comes to her, she’s mine.

Warning: You like short, hot, straight to the point stories? Do you want drama-free sexiness that leaves nothing to the imagination? Do you want a story that is pretty unbelievable, but gives you the warm fuzzies at the same time? Well then, leave your panties at the door because that’s what’s going down in this quickie.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

I’m a huge fan of these short hot reads and I find they just keep getting better and better.

Meghan and Brendan have been friends forever. And of course, they’ve been in love with each other but the other doesn’t know it. Well insert them having to move in together and BAM, pure hotness.

I especially liked when they started playing poker. That’s when the fun begins. I liked this one too because although it’s short like the others, it’s not over top. Although I do love me some over the top reads, this one was refreshing. Friends to lovers and it’s finest.

If you like quick short reads, you’ll love these books.

#WOTR18 #Review #ReleaseDay – His Mimosa (The Cocktail Girls) by Jamie Schlosser

His Mimosa (The Cocktail Girls)

Carter doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happily ever after. When he goes to Vegas for his brother’s bachelor party, the last thing he expects is Brynne, the beautiful cocktail waitress who nurses his hangover with a drink just as bubbly and sweet as she is.

Brynne’s optimism and unfailing faith in love is a breath of fresh air, and it makes him think maybe he’s had it wrong all along.

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. And Carter’s heart? It might be taking up permanent residence there.

***This Vegas-themed standalone novella is releasing June 1st, 2018!***

Goodreads

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

Oh this book!!!  I loved each character so much and the fact it was an insta-love so didn’t bother me at all.  Carter and Brynne so were perfect for each other.  She opened his eyes to what Love really is despite what he grew up seeing.  He taught her that jumping in feet first can burn you, but sometimes good things can actually happen for you.

Carter is such a grumpy old man…LOL  He is so jaded and being a total party pooper for his brother Vegas Bachelor party.  I mean who wants to hear the best man say you are an idiot for getting married????  Not most grooms or brides for that fact.

Brynne has lived and grown up in Vegas.  She is over the glitz of the city and just living for the fun and excitement.  When she sees a hottie, she jumps in feet first hoping for some fun not knowing her heart was going to be rocked on the best if ways.

The story was so sweet at times which made Carter open his eyes to WHAT he is missing out. The books is also super sexy when Carter and Brynne get to “getting to know each other” a little better!!!

She grew up on a farm in Illinois surrounded by cornfields. Although she no longer lives in the country, her dream is to return to rural living someday. As a stay-at-home mom, she spends most of her days running back and forth between her two wonderful kids and her laptop. She loves her family, iced coffee, and happily-everafters
