#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

 

#REVIEW – Experienced (Real Man #4) by Jenika Snow

He’ll show her how a real man treats a woman…

SABINE

I’d never known how good it could feel to be taken care of by a man who knew what he was doing.

Until I was with Hugo…

HUGO

I was older than she was.

She was innocent, hadn’t experienced all that life had to offer.

I could give her that experience.

Sabine consumed my thoughts, made me desire nothing else but her. No other woman compared to her, and because of that, I hadn’t been with a woman for four years, which was also the last time I saw Sabine.

But I was done feeling guilty for what I desired. I wanted Sabine in my life, by my side, and I was about to make that a reality.

I didn’t know if she’d ever been treated the way a female should … but I was going to show her how a real man takes care of a woman.

Warning: If you’re into super short, hot, dirty reads containing a much older hero and younger heroine … keep on reading. This story is guaranteed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, give you that sweet HEA we all deserve, and make you want to search out an experienced older man for yourself.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Who doesn’t love a story about an older man and a younger woman? Well this girl sure does. Hugo is much older than Sabine but man is he yummy. Russian, wealthy and a silver fox. He’s been in love with Sabine for awhile. Little did he know that Sabine felt the same way. Finally, they come together and let their feelings for each other take control.

This book is book 4 in the Real Man series but each book can be read as a standalone. It’s short. Instant. And super hot!

#REVIEW – Back River Quiver by Alexa Riley and Jessa Kane

Morgan is just looking to have a fun spring break until her workaholic mom brings along her new boyfriend. But when she ditches the two of them she ends up lost in a swamp, ankle deep in mud, and facing down a gator the size of Godzilla.

Rixen has been praying for God to send him his angel, his rightful mate who will live with him in the swamp and bear his children. When he finds the strawberry-blonde beauty before him in danger, he doesn’t hesitate to save her. Then claim his reward.

Warning: Okay, so, um, this is amazing terrible. This is so over the top, it’s on top of over the top. This book is on the level of ridiculous that surpasses all our stunts before this. You know what happens when we team up with Jessa Kane…but this is hands down the best/worst we’ve ever done. And we’re so proud we could wrestle a gator. Spoiler: There’s a lot of animal wrestling ahead. Grab your overalls and bug spray, we’re going in the bayou.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Um…okay…wow. I didn’t think it was possible but this is surely this duo’s hottest book to date.

Rixen is something else. He’s all male. Animal. Beast. Powerful. And pure deliciousness.

Morgan goes on vacation. Car breaks down. She starts walking through the bayou and of course gets lots. Rixen saves the day and holy crap…I’m still reeling over this.

This story is short, over the top and like I mean, not their usual OTT ways but this is over the top to the extreme. And it was amazing. Rixen is my favourite male of these authors and I would not oppose to them writing and more and more of this couple or men like him.

I now need a smoke.

#WOTR #Review #Shifter Sanctuary by Teresa Gabelman

Drowning in debt, the owner of Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary, Gemma Stone, is as exhausted as she is determined. Not only does she have to win over frightened, injured wolves daily, but she’s tired of those threatening to close her sanctuary down. It’s not until Eric Jackson walked into her life that she sees a light at the end of the lonely tunnel she’s been traveling. To the surprise of both, they have more in common than either could have ever imagined.

 

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

So this is a little novella with one of my favorite topics……..
SHIFTERS!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!! I love shifter stories and this is no different and it’s from one of my favorite authors.
Gemma Stone runs a wolf sanctuary in a little Kentucky town. She is a strong woman who goes at it alone with only her volunteer Larry, but it was her grandfather’s dream and now it is hers.
Eric Jackson comes to Gemma impersonating a Fish and Wildlife officer who is investigating her, but what he really is is a Alpha wolf shifter looking for a rogue shifter.
Whoa mama do the sparks fly off of these as soon as they start speaking!! I mean come on, these attraction these guys have is killer!! For a short little novella Gabelman does a great job of showing how fast mates can find each other and she pulls it your heartstrings by showing a awesome bond between Gemma and her wolves at the Sanctuary.
Gabelman has one little problem with this book though, Eric has brothers and I want to know more!!! Lol, she’s going to be busy because I won’t be the only one!!
If you’re looking for a peak into the shifter mind of Teresa Gabelman this is the novella for you.
