#Review – Resolute Justice by Leslie Marshman

Resolute Justice by [Leslie Marshman]

Will a stand-up sheriff toss the rule book in order to deliver justice?

Between hunting human traffickers and solving her father’s murder, Sheriff Cassie Reed’s hands are full. So, despite her attraction to Tyler Bishop, finding his runaway missing niece isn’t a priority. Besides, the charming PI’s penchant for bending rules exasperates the by-the-book cop. But when a leak in her department brings Cassie under suspicion, joining forces with the tantalizing rebel is her only option.

From Harlequin Intrigue: Seek thrills. Solve crimes. Justice served.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Team MEAT AND BEER!

Small town with big problems…The book starts out with quite the punch. We get to see how Tyler’s tale weaves himself into the small town of Resolute. While Tyler starts the hunt for his missing niece, he and Sheriff Cassie bump heads. The Sheriff has a lot on her plate and Tyler comes walking into town wanting her to break the rules. Um, NOPE! Not our Sheriff Cassie. While she is stubborn and headstrong, she starts to struggle thinking with her head instead of her heart. There are quite a few bumps in the road when the Texas Rangers pop in and throw a stick in their operation. Cassie and Tyler, who are opposites in ever way possible, work together to find these missing girls and put the bad guys to bed.

The story was very well written and while we all know that these two are going to end up together, it was fun watching these two grow on each other. Their banter back and forth made for some lightheartedness during some really crazy times in the book. I rooted for Cassie and Tyler the entire time and was not disappointed with the outcome. However, I am team MEAT AND BEER! Read it and you will know what I mean, LOL!

Award-winning suspense author Leslie Marshman is (finally) putting her psychology degree to good use, getting inside the heads of her characters and figuring out what makes them tick. She writes novels that feature kick-ass heroines, the heroes who love them, and the bad guys who fear them.

Leslie called Denver home until she married a Texan without reading the fine print. Now she lives halfway between Houston and Galveston and has learned to embrace the humidity. Her household includes two miniature poodles named Harley and Davidson, and a three-legged box turtle named Stumpy. If she’s not at her computer making things up, you’ll probably find her camping at a lake, a fishing pole in one hand and a book in the other.

#NewRelease – Stay Over, Kincaid Brothers book 1 by Kaylee Ryan

Stay Over (Kincaid Brothers Book 1) by [Kaylee Ryan]

Brooks

Overhearing my cousin’s best friend confessing that she’s never been satisfied wasn’t my fault… but offering to help her change that definitely was. Her brother is a friend of mine, and while this has a bad idea written all over it, it doesn’t stop us from becoming friends… with benefits.

Palmer is gorgeous, off-limits, and stubborn as hell. For the first time, I’m the one left wanting more.

I’m tired of watching her walk away. I’m ready for her to stay.

Palmer

I never dreamed having my crush overhear my most embarrassing confession would land me in his bed… or that I would want to stay there.

But our secret relationship has rules. No strings. No expectations. No feelings. What’s that saying about rules? Oh yeah, they’re meant to be broken.

But when it comes to Brooks, I’m afraid if I’m not the one to walk away, it won’t be just the rules broken.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

I was looking for a new something something to read and grabbed this book from a new to me author.  The blub got my attention annnnd it came on audio.  Double win!!

The story is about Patty.  She is a town local and always does the RIGHT thing.  But for once in her life, she decided to not be the “Good Girl” but a “Naughty Girl” and have a fling with the town Playboy, Reese.  Of course, Patty falls hard for Mr. Tall Dark and BADGED!!!

Reese has a lot of skeletons in his closet.  IT’S so full he sure as hell can’t close it with out ramming up to the door and jamming it shut.  He meets Patty and is all in for a few one-night stands when all of a sudden, he realized he kinnnnnda likes her.  SO of course, he must run for the hills.  When Mr Reese puts in for a transfer he gets a call of a man with a gun in Patty’s office!!  911 To the rescue!!!

Patty is not having a great day.  The guy she is falling for breaks it off, she is pregnant with said mans baby annnnd now a dude has a gun ….in her face…..This is definitely going to be  baaaad day.

Reese and Patty survive the office drama and have to “Talk”.  Patty and Reese both need to open up but both are scared outta their minds.   Patty because she knows he isn’t the settle down kind and Reese is being ruled by his past.   When Reese makes some decisions to help his soon to be child and hopefully the woman he will spend his life with, more drama ensues.  *GASP* Who is trying to kill him, Patty, and of course ruin his new life plans.

I enjoyed the story but a few times I wanted to shake both Patty and Reese because ….STUBBORN….

I did like the twist at the end of who the bad guy was.  I didn’t see all whole twist ending coming but the parts I didn’t see had me going “Oh snap!”

The narration was done well and I enjoyed Kate’s voice for all of the characters in the story.

Not Playing Fair

BEWARE: Cabin pressure may affect arousal.

Magdalena “Maggie” Perez Rivera

I don’t chase men… not even sexy papi chulos who pop into my life with their charming smiles. I should certainly avoid older ones who turn out to be my best friend’s beloved Uncle Connor. The last thing I need is another protective man in my life, even if I’m craving him.

Connor Hughes

My trip to Orlando is for an interview and to enjoy a short visit with my niece. That’s it. The tempting Latina is the furthest thing I need in my happily single life. To my surprise, the vixen slips under my skin and becomes a permanent fixture in my daily thoughts.

Deciding whether to test our undeniable chemistry may be the least of our worries, because life doesn’t always play a fair hand.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

When the chemistry is so intense between people, things are bound to explode! This is a funny story full of passion, love, and of course some conflict. When these two meet, neither are ready for what’s next. The banter between them is hilarious and they certainly didn’t expect to see each other again, let alone expected that Connor was Maggie’s best friend’s uncle. OOPS!!! It is hot and steamy at times but there is a lot of the bumbling around acting like idiots’ moments too. There were a lot of times that I laughed out loud because I could see myself and/or my fiancé being in the same situation but then you have a lot of the awwww moments that capture your heart. This is a fun, lighthearted read that will keep you completely engrossed from start to finish. When things feel too good to make an exit strategy, decisions have to be made to walk away or jump in with both feet. This is an absolute must read!

#WOTR22 #TwinsieforthedayPam #UglyCry – Time Stamps by KL Kreig

Time Stamps by [KL Kreig]

Time stamps.

Our life is marked by them. Significant milestones to the seemingly mundane. All of them have a place. A purpose. Moments and chapters stacking on each other, building scars and memories. Creating stories that are only ours to tell.

But those stamps are finite, pre-determined. And eventually our allotment runs out.

From the first moment Roth laid eyes on Laurel, he was done for. She is sarcastic and clumsy and the most whimsically alluring creature he has ever met. And as he sat across the table from her in a café on their first date, he fell head over heels in love. He couldn’t imagine his life without her. Their romance is a whirlwind. Their love deep and unrivaled.

But life doesn’t often follow our pre-scripted playbook, and after ten short years together Laurel receives devastating, life-altering news that will change everything.

Time Stamps is a heartwarming and heartbreaking epic love story about life, hope and loss. Told in the past through Laurel’s eyes and the present through Roth’s, you will embark on a beautiful, intimate journey into a couple’s lives where ultimately what matters most is not only how we live each day, but the memories we leave behind.

Author: H. D’Agostino
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Pink Ink Designs
Release Date: August 2, 2022
The Bradshaws have owned a beach house down the coast from ours for as long as I can remember. Every summer since I was six, we’ve vacationed there.
Russell, their youngest son, was my best friend growing up. He taught me how to spit and punch like a boy. He gave me my first beer and first kiss, which was terrible by the way. We spent many days and nights commiserating together about how our parents knew nothing and were so uncool.
Casey Bradshaw, Russ’s older brother, was everything I thought I wanted in a boyfriend. He was cool, mature, and very hot. Each summer I tried and failed, to get him to notice me as more than Russ’s friend and the girl from down the beach. The last summer I was there, he broke my heart.
It’s been six years, and my best friend Aimee has decided we need a vacation. The last thing I expected was to be back at the beach. Sometimes we don’t realize what we need has been right under our nose all along, and sometimes it takes a little push and some alcohol to admit we were wrong.

#WOTR22 #Audio #Rereads #Contemporary #Mafia #Suspense #Series – Tangles in Texas Series by Alison Bliss

Tangled in Texas

Rules of Protection, Book 1- 
It’s rule breaker Emily Foster’s birthday, and like everyone at The Jungle Room, she just wants to get some action. Unfortunately, she stumbles on the wrong kind, witnessing a mob hit. To protect her, she’s entered into the Witness Protection Program with by-the-book Special Agent Jake Ward as her chaperone.

When the location of their safe house is compromised, Jake stashes Emily deep in the Texas backwoods. The city-girl might be safe from the Mafia, but she has to contend with a psychotic rooster, a narcoleptic dog, crazy cowboys, and the danger of losing her heart to the one man she can’t have.

Jake’s as hot as he is infuriating, and she can’t help but push all his buttons to loosen him up. Their mutual, sizzling sexual attraction poses a dilemma: Jake’s determined to keep her safe and out of the wrong hands; she’s determined to get into the right ones—his.

Each book in the Tangled in Texas series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Playing with Fire, Book 2-

Nothing ignites a fire like the perfect match…

Anna Weber is every inch the proper librarian–old-fashioned, conservatively dressed right down to her tightly clipped flaming red hair. She’s just moved to a small Texas town, and is determined to spend time with her friend before she has to disappear. Relationships aren’t easy for her. She knows too well what it means to be burned. And the last thing she ever wants to do is fall in love…

Especially not with a fireman who’s hot enough to set the entire state of Texas on fire.

Cowboy can’t resist the fiery little librarian, and he’s determined to make her his. Beneath that prim-and-proper exterior is a woman he very much wants to know–if she’d let him. She’ll test his patience. His control. Hell, his very sanity. And for the first time, Cowboy wonders if he’s found the one fire he can’t control…

Law of Attraction, Book 3-

For single mom Bobbie Jo Weston, finding a husband is not on her to-do list. She’s focused on turning a run-down chicken farm into a Bed & Breakfast. She agrees to let a friend’s nephew stay with her in exchange for his handyman skills, but she wasn’t counting on the super sexy Seth Landry being that guy.

Seth has a special skill-set, all right, but it has nothing to do with hammering nails. As a retired member of The Resistance—an elite group of ex-military soldiers—his dark, unsettling past haunts him. He needs a place to lay low, and an out-of-the-way B&B is nothing short of perfect. The blonde beauty doesn’t trust men, and he doesn’t plan on sticking around long enough to change her mind.

The closer they get, the more they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other. And while Bobbie holds on to her fear of watching another man walk out of their lives, Seth’s mere presence has put them all in jeopardy. The only way to ever be free of his dangerous past is for him to accept one last mission…

Review by Twinsie Angie

Book 1 –

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Two author friends, who go by the name Elizabeth Hayley, tagged me on Facebook about possibly reading their friends new book. Hey, I love those ladies and their books crack me up so if THEY are in love with someone then I will love them too, Right?? I reached out to the author and asked for an advanced copy. OMG am I glad I did. I was laughing soooo hard at some many different lines in the book. I was even texting my friend/blogger/bestie Melinda with lines saying “you have gotta read this book”……
So this story begins with our main character at the bar with her besties Gina and Dale celebrating her birthday. She sees a hottie checking her out but decides against it. She strolls to the bathroom when said hottie finds her annnnd is not so hot….more slimey gross. Well she tries to shake him but he won’t take the hint so a Southern Gentleman plays the part of her “boyfriend” to make slime ball take the hint. Well another situation arises and Mr. Southern Gentleman needs her help again so she ends up lip locking him AGAIN!!!! Well Gina and Dale dare our girl to follow Mr. Southern Gentleman down the hallway to jump his bones but instead she sees slime ball getting killed. Well she runs and gets attacked by Jake, the Southern Gentleman but escapes him. She goes to the police station to report the murder but GASP Mr. Southern Gentleman appears and GASP he is a FEDERAL AGENT!!!!
SOOO Jake and our newly named Emily go into the Witness Protection to help take down Slime Balls killer. Well the chemistry between the two is awesome and she pretty much pouts and offers a no strings attached night but dang it if the bad guys don’t find them. So Jake and Emily go off radar. Jake is hiding Emily without the FBI’s approval. He takes her in to Deliverance country to hide out with his family. They are supposed to be boyfriend/girlfriend…… Which is news to Emily because they fight NONSTOP!!! Which makes the book insanely funny and fullllllll of sexual tension.
So while hiding out Emily and Jake fight over her jealousy of his ex, his jealousy of her flirting, her not being able to be domestic at all, him being overly alpha at every turn of the second hand on your watch, her only thinking about herself, him not taking her feelings into consideration, and on and on and on!! Now sometimes when I read a book like this I am like “seriously, enough already” but not once in this entire novel did I feel bored with them. I was in love with the characters and the story. I was shocked at how fast I flew through this book. I was so busy reading that when I hit 45% I was stunned and then next thing I knew I was at 88%. I mean WHERE DID IT GO!!! The story was just flying by and I wanted to know what would happened but I didn’t want the story to end.
The epilogue made me really happy and laught a lot. The epilogue had everything about the story you wanted to know…like about the boys, the ex, Junior, Henry and Floss and the rest of the town you have come to love.
The story has so many twist and turns. It is soo full of sexual innuendo and sexual chemistry. I yelled at both characters while also yelling with them at the other person. I have to tell you I CANNOT wait for more from this author and this series.

Book 2-

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
OK SO I freaking love this author. Her books crack me up. Her characters are loveable and at the same time you wanna smack them or kick them for being total jacka$$es. Now this is book 2 of the series but you don’t have to have read book 1 to understand but if you missed book 1, you will soooo wanna read it after reading this one.
We met Cowboy in book 1 when he was giving Jake a hard time about Emily. We loved his charm and flirty ways so I was really excited to finally get his book. He is suuuuch a “love ‘em and leave ‘em” guy that we can’t believe he has eyes for the uptight librarian. I mean I love Anna but she is a total shy, nerdy girl that everyone sees but doesn’t really see. Well Anna has had eyes for Cowboy for EVER but knew he never SAW her. When he does see her, she is floored and thinks he is looking for a notch on his bet. When she turns him does, he is FLOORED. Cowboy gets what he wants UNTIL Anna.
Anna is hiding in plain sight from Cowboy but also from her dark past. She won’t be in town for long but wanted to connect with her friend Bobbie Jo. Cowboy and Anna begin a dance of will they or wont they. Cowboy is all about claiming her but then freaks out about her innocents. Anna is all about keeping her guard but then Cowboy kisses her and BOOM forgets her hatred of him…..some seriously funny scenes are when she is yelling at him using “big words”…..
I loved these characters and I love the twists and turns regarding who is stalking Anna. I am really excited about who I think the next book will be abut. I really hope its Bobbie Jo because she really needs her own HEA after all that “germy” has done to her.

Book 3-

I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.

GUUURL!! Bobbie Jo you know I was not your friend in Book 1 right?? You know I was plotting with Emily to have some disfiguring accident happen or that you would get run over by Flossy’s tractor?? Something bad would happen!! THEN, like Emily, I warmed to you and saw the real you…not the superficial one that everyone else sees. The more I read about you and being a single mom, the more I felt bad for being so awful to you. I have been PATIENTLY waiting for this book….for your book because if ANYONE needs an HEA, it is YOU!!

Bobbie Jo has had a DRY SPELL…..no play since her little accident with her sperm donors little gift was received. So, she has finally decided to give a one night stand a try. When she spies a tall glass of water she is hopeful he can help her out buuuut as usual Jeremy screws that up or did he???? After yet another confrontation Bobbie Jo and said tall glass of water start to get hot and heavy and he walks away?? WHU??????

Bobbie is like PFFT with men and that is when her life changes forever….ya see Mr. Tall Glass of Water happens to turn up at her door and is her new Guest Boarder at her house…yes friends que to intense sexual chemistry!! Oh yeah Mr. Tall Glass of Water just happens to be Bobbie Jo’s boss’ nephews, Seth. Seems Seth needs to settle for a few weeks and clear his head.

Seth is like WTF when he sees Bobbie. He is then super confused when he is thinking his summer of clearing BOTH his brain will include a little bed hopping with Bobbie when he little Boy, Austin, comes home. Seth kinda freaks but sees how the 2 adore each other. Plus Austin us a super cool little kid!!!

So Bobbie and Seth have come to an “understanding” of no sex because she is his boss wile he is doing repairs on her farm…friends we ALL know that is so not gonna last. THE CHEMSITRY is crazy and then when he think they WILL…cock blocked …then we think they might and again more tension. Lets just say when they finally do…its was on like Donkey Kong!!

Now as we are beginning to see hearts growing and love forming, Seth’s past comes back and causes trouble as does Bobbie Jo’s sperm donor. This causes all kinds of complications for the two. They are so confused over what to do and what to say at times that that further causes issues.
So my favorite part of the book is when Seth gives Bobbie Jo a certain code word. Now I cant tell you the code word because when they pick the code words it was hilarious as hell but when he uses it……Lump in my throat friends….huge lump.

I have got to say, I loved this story. I loved seeing everyone together again and the epilogue was THE ABSOLUTE BEST EVER!!! It ties everything together for all the characters in the series.

#Review – The Fisher Men X My Heart: Book 1 by Rebel Nicks O’Dey

The Fisher Men X My Heart

After the incident, four brothers vowed to love, but never date her.

Morgan made her chicken soup to feed her body and soul.
Connor taught her what love is during their weekly movie date.
Xander held her when the demons wouldn’t let her sleep.
Zack made her a badass who is no longer afraid of the dark.

The girl next door is coming home, all grown up, and ready to claim one of them. Has it been long enough?
Separating the girl who needed them, from the woman who wants just him, will make navigating a relationship through the hooks of the Fisher Family, and the mysteries that surround them, difficult at best.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Girls, I’m hooked! This is the first book I have read by this author but it most certainly won’t be the last! I need more of the Fisher Men in my life! I don’t normally get too into romance stories but this one, let me tell ya, is soooo much more! This isn’t your normal romance. There are some reverse harem aspects but nothing that crosses the line. Basically, these guys all protect her but have a pact to not date or claim her. They will do anything to make sure she is safe and protected. These boys were raised right! There is a trigger warning at the beginning of the book that the author outlines stupendously. She even has it marked in the book so that if you are uncomfortable, you can skip that part and not miss the story. The Fisher’s parents founded ‘Safe Space’ and help people that are victims of abuse or are in cult type situations. But when Kateri (the Fisher’s sister) and Samantha are assaulted, both need very different things. These boys are fixers and Samantha needed that. This book takes place after Samantha left for college and comes back to town as a woman. When she and the Fisher’s collide there is a different type of tension that grips your heart. I mean this will give you ALL the feels! I don’t really want to say a lot about the story because I don’t want to give anything away but you absolutely NEED to read this. There are quite a few characters that are very important to the story which is told from many of their points of view. The author did this seamlessly and it makes the story just that much better! This is an amazing story of self-discovery that is heart wrenching, panty melting, swoon worthy, but wholesome with a ton of the feels! Boy, I never thought I would put those words in a sentence together but this author, Rebel, you made me do it! Bravo! Can’t wait to put my hooks in the other Fisher Men!
