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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

#WOTR22 – #Review – My Road Trip Romance by Jennifer Daniels

My Road Trip Romance

Author, Cassidy Nixon hides in her stories. It’s much easier than feeling anything real for anyone other than her family.

Interested in attending the Harvest Pick and Read writer’s convention, Cassidy, her brother Darren, and his wife Sam set out on the long drive to the event.

The first stop starts off with a bang, when Cassidy runs headfirst into a handsome stranger. And for the first time in a long while, Cassidy is taken with this hardheaded stranger that she will never see again. Or will she?

She runs into this handsome man a second time and thinks its just coincidence.

When he shows up at the same event in the room next door, Cassidy thinks he’s a stalker. But he convinces her he isn’t.

All Cassidy had to worry about was the safety of her raccoons while she was gone.

Now will she have to worry about her heart?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Super cute, quick read! If you are one who frequents author events as a read or an author, this is a great read. Ms. Daniels puts a sweet spin on Cassidy, an author getting ready for an event to meet readers, having a road trip with her brother and sister-in-law but also finding a bit of love on the way. Cassidy is one of those types of people that I would call an extroverted introvert. They tend to keep to themselves unless they really know you. However, the pull that Cassidy has to Jack makes her a bit more adventurous. Oh, and the raccoons, they have a special place in my heart. I would have liked the story to be a bit longer as some of it felt a bit rushed but overall, I recommend this if you are looking for a cute and quick read.

Where oh where do i begin this is the beginning of one of my favorite series, Kendall had a rough childhood having been taken from her parents in a good way she went to live with her nana and gramps which she loved because she knew she was safe. When Nana got sick they had to move into a trailer and there she met the VanPelts Brian, Casey and Will they became best friends and those 3 boys became very protective over Kendall. They keep close through out the years and plan to move to California after Kendall and Will graduate and live happily ever after. Well until a fateful night that took Kendalls future from her and left her empty and heartbroken. Ugh this book is exactly what i needed and broke my heart all over again. But to have Brian meet a few members of the quad was the perfect scene of past and future being together without knowing. Ugh i need so much more.

#WOTR22 #Novella #Medical #TwinsieOfTheDayPam – Wes, Love in Scrubs Book 3 by AJ Renee

Wes (Love in Scrubs Book 3) by [AJ Renee, Angie Wade]

From the author of the St. Fleur series comes a fun tale of finding love in the emergency room.

Nurse. Mom. Daughter. Natalia Kruze wore many hats, but mom was the role she was most proud of. As a single mom, she couldn’t be everywhere at once, but she had been blessed with a patient son and helpful parents. Dating wasn’t high on the priority list, so it was safe to say it had been years since she’d experienced any kind of electrifying spark from a man.

With her defenses low after missing another soccer game, a patient catches her eye. Sexy and decidedly stubborn, Wes Wilkins succeeds in leaving his ER visit with her number.

Had they finally found the love they deserved, or will they put their dreams second to their kids’ needs?

Goodreads

Review by Pam

Wes: 5***** Stars
Family Committed
Gah!!! Crying now. It’s so good! Each book in this series can be read as a stand alone. But I highly recommend that you read them all. Each one gets better. You will need tissues for this story. Natalie and Wes meet in an unconventional way. I love the way AJ thinks. Lots of humor. Love the commitment to family. From a True Fan… Pam James.

Such a fun set of books to read.

#WOTR22 #novella #medical #Series #TwinsieOfTheDayPam – Jason, Love in Scrubs book 2 by AJ Renee

Jason (Love in Scrubs Book 2) by [AJ Renee, Angie Wade]

From the author of the St. Fleur series comes a fun tale of finding love in the most unexpected place.

Being stood up for a first date was the last thing on Ava King’s mind. Yet Mr. Wrong opened the door to Mr. Sexy, who’s already sitting next to her at the bar. One drink becomes two, and going against her own code, she goes home with the charming stranger.

Waking in Jason’s foreign bed sends her into a panic, and she escapes before any morning-after awkwardness can ensue.

Can fate bring them together again to see if their chemistry transcends one steamy night of passion?

Goodreads

Review by Pam

Jason: 5***** stars
Tug at Your Heart Good
This book made me an emotional mess. It definitely tugged at my heart. Ava runs from Jason after a night of passion. He does not have her # or her last name. When they meet up again, he wants another chance to get to know her. Great short story. It can be read as a stand alone. From a True Fan… Pam James

#WOTR22 #Novella #Medical #Series #TwinsieOfTheDayPam – Joshua, Love in Scrubs book 1 by AJ Renee

Joshua (Love in Scrubs Book 1) by [AJ Renee, Angie Wade]

From the author of the St. Fleur series comes a fun tale of finding love in the emergency room.

The single life had been treating Hazel Rivera better than she’d anticipated. With no one to report to, she did as she pleased, which included if and when she’d have a man in her bed. She felt no shame in satisfying her own needs, but when toy-play goes wrong, she earns herself a visit to the emergency room.

Squirming in pain, the last thing she expected was to find a sexy nurse assigned to her room. She could lose herself in a man like him—sinful eyes, full lips, and a kindhearted attitude—but before she can catch Joshua Bradley again, she’s sent home.

When life hands them a second chance, will they risk their hearts?

Goodreads

Review by Pam

Joshua: 4**** stars
Very Entertaining
This laugh out loud story has some very sexy scenes. I was chuckling right away. Hazel has an unfortunate incident and ends up in the ER where she meets Nurse Hottie. You have to read the book to find out why. This is a short story. I would have liked more because it was so entertaining. From a Fan… Pam James

Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
What a sweet short story by an awesome author I enjoy reading.
This story is about a woman who is alone in a cabin in Tennessee. When she sees a hurt wolf, she is drawn to protect him. She helps him but then wakes up to a man in her house….whut??? When all is revealed he is the shifter who has been watching out for her for a few years annnnnnd he is her mate.
I really don’t want to say any more because this is a very short and sweet read for you to plop down and read when have an hour to kill.

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.

Being a full-time writer has allowed Teresa to connect more with readers which is what she loves most about writing. If you find the time she would love to hear from you!

#Review – VCard for Christmas (A Filthy Dirty Christmas) by Hope Ford

A Top 50 Amazon Bestseller!

He asked me to be his fake wife… I gave him my v card.

Yea, it probably wasn’t the smartest move.
He’s my hot, older next-door neighbor and he looks like he would be trouble.
But after one taste of my cupcake, he’s on a mission.
He watches me like an obsessed voyeur, and I probably should tell him no, but when he gets in a bind, I agree to be his fake wife.

It was supposed to be a fun Christmas Eve celebration.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for him.

And I definitely wasn’t supposed to end up in his bed after one date.

Lincoln is smart, handsome, protective and exactly what I wanted… but I wasn’t ready for the next morning when I hear another woman on the phone claiming to be his wife.

Was this all a game?
If so, it’s one I really didn’t want to lose.

Welcome to a filthy dirty Christmas! Forget sugar and spice and everything nice … this year we want to show off our naughty side. Taboo, dangerous, and over-the-top, we’re bringing you everything you were too scared to ask Santa for. **Don’t worry, loves, these are still packed with the heroes you crave and the HEA’s you deserve!

So I was looking for hot, fun, novella type reads and came across this multi-author series by author’s I’ve never read before. I figured why not and give them a shot and I’m glad I did!

VCard For Christmas starts off this Holiday series where we meet Lincoln and Avery. Avery just moved in but Lincoln had no idea until two weeks later. There’s an instant connection between them, one that neither of them can deny. It’s definitely a love at first sight kind of situation.

Lincoln ends up finding himself in a situation where he needs a wingman so to speak. With Avery pretending to be his wife so doesn’t get hit on by a business partner’s wife, things take a turn for better. Pretending to be husband and wife, definitely increases their attraction they have for each other. Until it gets to the point where they can’t do anything but consumate their fake marriage.

Throw in some sweetness, mixed with some spice and steam, and you get a quick, hot little read for those cool nights.
