#REVIEW – Author Anonymous by E.K. Blair

*An intoxicatingly risqué stand-alone book.

She’s an author.
She’s a mother.
She’s a wife.
She’s a fraud, a woman marked and bound by her own deceit.

Experience the astounding tale of how Anonymous battled through a year of scandals and betrayals, how her world fell from its axis with a single choice, and how she lost herself between reality and fantasy.

This is a stand-alone tangled in lust, heartbreak, and contrition.

*Based on a true story.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I’m not even sure what to say right now or even how to rate this book. I gave it 5 stars because EK Blair’s writing is fan-freaking-tastic but for the story? Oh gosh. It’s hard. So so hard.

This book came out last year and unfortunately I didn’t get around to finishing it until today. As most of you know, this book is based on a true story. It’s a frustrating, heartbreaking, epic tale and EK Blair weaves it altogether to give you so much sorrow…gah, I can’t even right now.

Tori ends up meeting this man, Alec and together, sparks fly, lies twist and so much agony, I don’t even know where to begin. I like Alec. I really do. I find that I want to know more about him. I want to know why he was the he was. I want to know his point of view while everything happened with Tori.

I’ll read books about anything. I have no triggers. Nothing will hold me back. But this story is probably the most frustrating I’ve ever read. Tori is selfish. Even when she knows what she’s doing is wrong and admits to it, she still goes and does it. It’s a train wreck of wrong decisions and poor choices.

But the story is one you can’t put down. You want to keep reading to find out what happens next but that ending? It made me sad. That’s all I’m going to say.

 

#REVIEW – Taken by Elena M. Reyes and N. Isabelle Blanco

I was drugged.
Now, I’ve woken up in a dark, luscious room.
A deviant playground.
I’m not alone.
The person that was drugged and taken with me is here, too.
My confident.
Someone that I had come to see as a brother.
My best friend.
Suddenly, there’s a voice coming through the speakers, telling us we’ve both been chosen to die.
The only way out? Do everything we’re told to do.
This person wants to watch us. They want to be entertained. As she says, “I want to see you come.”
It’s simple: either we sleep together, or die.

WARNING: This story isn’t for everyone. Please read with caution. Contains graphic violence and explicit situations some might find disturbing. Read at your own risk.

 

Twinise Jo’s Review:

 

Um…okay…wow.

When Twinsie Angie said to me “Hey JoJo, it’s hot and it’s like SAW”, I was sold.

Ivy and Noah are taken and told to do…well…anything the “voice” tells them to do. They have to listen or else. Really? Crazy right?

With Ivy and Noah being best friends, he will do anything to keep her safe. Feelings come to light that neither of them knew the other had.  The “voice” knows them. She knows things about them that are supposed to be kept secret. Maybe they don’t even know it about themselves.

This story is short but it packs a punch. These authors can write some of the best tension I have ever read. Like seriously. The build up is off the charts hot. I thought my kindle was going to explode.

#WOTR #COVERREVEAL – Numb (King’s Harlots, #4) by J.M. Walker

Blurb:

He doesn’t remember.

In the beginning, women and alcohol were one in the same. Until he met her.

The pain and heartache he caused her died when he was shot and fell into a coma.

Waking up is the only way he can get back to Maxine Stanton while she does everything she can to push him away.

She hates him.

Every fiber of her being loathes the man she fell in love with but she can’t control her heart and wants him just the same.

When Dale Michaels finally wakes up, she realizes they need to end this once and for all, before it destroys them both.

When an unexpected source rips through what they’ve worked hard to maintain, only then do they realize the full potential of their love.

#WOTR #REVIEW – Rude (King’s Harlots #3) by JM Walker

33009433

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

His past haunts him.
Broken and destroyed, keep him silent and withdrawn.
Vice-One is the family he had always needed but it isn’t enough. Shadows of a nightmare threaten to take back the control he craves until Brogan Tapp unknowingly puts him in his rightful place.

She pretends to be happy.
Smile. Laugh. Repeat.
Going through the emotions of everyday life when really, she’s a scared little girl on the inside.
She tries hard to be what society considers as normal when Coby Porter helps her embrace the darkness within. He shows her it’s okay to be different.

Their souls collide, giving them the comfort they need when an unknown source takes pleasure in trying to rip them apart.

Goodreads

Intense. Dark. Dangerous. Delicious. What do you do when you find your match? Coby-effing-Porter and Brogan-little one-Tapp. The most unlikely of pairs. In the past stories we learn that Coby is a man of few words. He only speaks when necessary and is like a ghost. Brogan is a small girl but is one of the toughest of the King’s Harlots. She is extremely outspoken and doesn’t beg for anything or anyone.

As King’s Harlots and Vice-One are dealing with their own personal issues they are still trying to get to the bottom of the trafficking scandal. One night Brogan is “interrogating” someone from the organization and Coby sees a very dark side of Brogan. What most people would find dark, scary, and extremely intimidating, Coby fills with a lustful desire for Brogan. Both have had their fair share of people they have slept with trying to sate their appetite but neither have been able to let go like they do with each other. They are in a complex game of give and take. Both have had terrible childhoods, very different but similar all the same. And here is where they they really start to rely on using each other. Brogan almost dies in an accident and Coby becomes extremely protective of her. Then, Boom! Buckle up for an intense ride!

And this is about all I can tell you of the actual story so there are no spoilers. But there isn’t just one twist that will stop you in your tracks but there are several twists that are going to make you gasp. I mean real, heartfelt, deep in your soul gasps. I thought the other books in this series were intense but this one takes the cake. Once again the bad guy is truly twisted and really puts this story in its place. I find that when I read a series that the first book is usually the best and then they wind down as you go through the series. Truthfully, this is my favorite one yet. It is not your normal damsel in distress. Again, many gasps…promise. There is plenty of hotness that I have come to know from JM Walker with this series but the rollercoaster ride of emotions is the killer. Beware, you won’t be able to put this one down!

28793866

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He wants to be alone.
Nightmares from his past keep him guarded and afraid.
Vice-One is his life. They’re his brothers—the only people who helped keep him out of his own head long enough to move on from the childhood he never asked for.

His therapy has been protecting his country, barely taking a break before beginning his next mission. But no amount of training can prepare him for his great challenge yet—convincing Meeka Cline that she will be his.

She wants out.
Her world fell apart when King’s Harlots no longer trusted her, but she continues to fight to gain back their respect.
All she wants is to help those wronged by the evil that has put a shadow on everyone she knows.
Asher Donovan comes to her for help when he needs her most only to have passion flare up between them. One problem: He’s her best friend.

Putting aside their friendship, they use the heat between them to please the depraved minds they now understand…

Goodreads

What did I just read?! Uh, yes! Gimme more! This can be read as a stand alone but I highly suggest reading Grit first because you get a feel for Asher and Meeka along with the rest of the supporting characters. Stain is aalllllllll about Asher and Meeka. These two have been best friends since they were kids. But that’s it, just friends. They trust each other implicitly. This is a story of friends turned lovers…sometimes a bit cliche’ but JM Walker hit it out of the park with their story.

Asher is undercover and trying to find the ringleader of this sex trafficking scandal that we learned about in Grit. He needs help and ends up bringing Meeka into this undercover as well, but not necessarily with her consent. As they are about to meet the person in charge now, Charles Brian, they end up kissing and things heat up extremely quick between the two of them. Now completely submerged into this other society they try to keep up appearances but things slowly unravel. Asher is more invested in the background of this story than you will ever expect. It will pull at your heartstrings! Unexpected people are in the middle and things go to hell in a hand basket very fast. Plenty of twists to keep you on your toes and constantly guessing who and what is going to happen next.

If there is one thing that JM Walker knows how to do, it’s writing a HAWT scene, but one thing I have come to love is the way the bad guy comes to life with her words. Charles Brian is a bad guy that you love to hate. As if Meeka and Asher aren’t intense enough on their own, the setting, the supporting characters and the bad guy will keep your heart pumping. I am not normally a fan of MC books but I cannot put this series down. Bad girls and their bad guys! Perfect combination.

#NewRelease #Erotica #Contemporary Holding On Tighter (A Wicked Lovers Novel) by Shayla Black



synopsis

Jolie Quinn is a woman in charge. Her no-nonsense attitude has made her a rising star in the fashion world and her brand a household name among the Dallas elite. Nothing will stop her from achieving her goals—not even the gorgeous British security contractor who seems just as interested in seeing her personal assets as he is in protecting her professional ones.

After a tragedy left him broken, Heath Powell made a rule of staying unattached. But Jolie challenges him in a way he can’t ignore, and he isn’t used to backing down from a confrontation—especially when the reward for winning could feel so good. As passion blazes between them, the stubborn, confident beauty arouses more than his desire. She touches his heart.

When a mysterious enemy threatens Jolie and her company, Heath is the only person Jolie can trust to help. But working with him to save her business might put her dangerously at risk of falling in love…

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

This is the 12th book in the series and it shows no signs of stopping or even slowing down.
I love that this is a series that you don’t have to have read the books that come before. When past characters do pop in they are only in for a few scenes and it doesn’t take away from the main couple. That being said let’s talk about Jolie and Heath!
Heath Powell is a ex MI5 agent and bodyguard now he is a security contractor that has been hired by Jolie Quinn.
He has a had a horrible tragedy in his past that has made him the all fun no strings kind of guy that he is today.
Jolie Quinn is a no nonsense kind of woman that plans on taking her fashion company and brand all the way to the top. She has no time for a man or love, because she has been taught from a early age that love is false, men leave, and she can get to the top without one.
When a admirer starts leaving gifts for her sister and threats for her things get heated with Heath when he wants to be her bodyguard and not just her security expert at work. She doesn’t want him that close because even though she doesn’t want to be she’s attracted to him. Her headstrong ways and stubbornness makes her attractive to him which is the last thing he wants and is the total opposite of what he normally looks for in his “hit it and quit it” girls.
When you first meet Jolie she is the kind of woman that others see as a cold hearted bitch, but that is the last thing she is. Growing up with siblings that all had different fathers, a mother that was constantly looking for a mans love, a practically raising those siblings I mentioned, she has not lost the will to love only put a shell around her heart and it made her the strong woman she is today.
Heath has a deep need to make sure that this woman is protected at all cost, even if it cost him his life. Being with her has made him realize that he can’t go on like he was and she has stolen his heart.
As the mystery of who her sister’s admire is and who’s after her deepens, the two grow closer and closer and the come together and neither can deny what the other means to them any longer.
There is so much danger, mystery, and heart in this story that Shayla Black proves why she is one of my favorite authors. She can tell a awesome story, add in characters new and old, and never lose the couple at the heart of the story. I will gladly wait patiently for the next book in the series and while I do I’ll will do a reread of some of my favorite couple from the series.

ALFA Private Investigations is a spin-off of the Men of Inked series, but can be read separately.
**Includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas**

There’s only one thing worse than dating a friend’s sister sleeping with his mother.

Fran DeLuca’s known for her bossy, overbearing personality almost as much as for her love of nylon tracksuits. But when someone runs off with fifty thousand dollars, she becomes involved in an ALFA investigation and catches the eye of silver fox biker, Bear.

Bear North, ALFA’s resident bad boy, has never thought of Fran as anything more than his buddy’s mom. When she trades in her elastic pants and orthopedic tennis shoes for a pair of skintight jeans and high heels, he takes notice of the fifty-something MILF.

When the money trail leads closer to Fran than expected, Bear takes charge of the investigation and will do anything to protect her. Can Bear track a thief, claim Fran, and keep Morgan DeLuca in the dark long enough to solve the case?

Wicked Impulse is book 3 in the ALFA PI series and includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Wicked Impulse by Chelle Bliss
Bear & Fran
I BELIEVE I HAVE A NEW FAVE
5 Stars

So, this has become my favorite Chelle Bliss book for so many reasons. It’s suspenseful, it’s hilarious, and it’s hot as hell! I was sucked back into the Alfa PI world almost immediately and I didn’t come up for air till I uttered the words “the end.” This is a story with more mature main characters so it was easy for me to relate to them.

Bear has always had my heart. My visual is a combination between Sam Elliot and Grizzly Adams. I know weird, but for me uber hot! He’s been around the block and isn’t afraid to let it show. He’s pissed off more woman than you can count and he’s not sorry. When he sees Fran as more than just his friends mom, oh boy… the shit’s gonna hit the fan for sure!

Fran cracks me right the hell up. She’s a 50 something MILF but doesn’t know it just yet. Leave it to Maria to take her shopping and ditch the Blair wardrobe for good. Her heart is pure, but her bod is made for sin. She’s been “the mom” for too long. Something has got to give. It’s refreshing and comical to see her finally let loose.

The supporting character cast is pretty big. Imagine all the hotties in one place at one time.. well you can do that multiple times in this story. You get your fill at the office and at the Neon Cowboy! Maria is by far my favorite supporting character! Who knew she could swear like a champ!

I wouldn’t say that this story is dark or tragic. It actually leans more towards a suspenseful romantic comedy if that’s even a thing! The story line itself is exciting and thrilling, but still manages to crack you up when you least expect it. The characters are dominant and down-to-earth and they keep you captivated though out the tale. The dialogue flows nicely and tension leading up to the climax was perfect. I fell in love with Bear and Fran’s story instantly.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Disclaim by Pam Godwin
Matias & Camila
I WISH I WAS STILL READING IT! LOVED IT!
5 STARS

So, those of you that know me, know that one of my all time favorites is Pam Godwin. She could write an insurance manual and I’d be mesmerized by the contents! Her words are that fucking good! I intentionally read this slow so I could savor every damn word. I didn’t want it to end. Disclaim is thought provoking, captivating, and just down right brilliant. It will take your breath away and steal your soul.

This is not for the faint of heart so beware. No beautiful cut and dry love story here. This isn’t a BDSM tale of self discovery… more like the dark and dirty things in life we mostly turn a blind eye to. So, if your squeamish, then put this one back on the shelf until you are so inclined to pull up your big girl panties and read one of the best books of 2016.

Camila is one of those women so blinded by her own need to deliver justice to those who do wrong, that she doesn’t even hesitate to put herself in harms way if she believes the outcome will benefit her crusade. She strong, courageous, and cunning! She’s a former sex slave on a mission to take down any and all slave trading rings, but when she poses as a slave herself, things don’t go as planned. Let’s just say Camila is in for a rude awakening.

Matias is all kinds of alpha male. He’s lean, he’s mean, and he’s not taking no for an answer. He’s fighting his own battle that can only be described as hell on Earth. I seriously did not know whether to trust him or not. I’m still not certain! Get ready to fall in love with this man while your insides secretly hate him. No shit!

The supporting character cast is rather hefty. We get to see a small glimpse into Liv and Joshua’s lives, while giggling at Van and Amber a bit. The two characters that stood out the most for me were Tate and Nico. Tate is one of Camila’s best friends, but barely says two words through the entire book. His quiet persona intrigue me and I’m feeling that I need to know more about this beautiful silent giant. Now Nico, he’s Matias’ friends and he’s kind of a prick, but eh, he totally rubbed off on me.

So, this books is definitely going on my top 10 of 2016 no doubt about it. The storyline is exceedingly compelling and those characters, wow so commanding, so realistic. The dialogue flows with proficiency and the tension leading up to the climax is hauntingly superb. I love you Pam Godwin and your messed up mind! You make me wanna be a dirty girl!

A short-story erotic romance from Shayla Black:
I’m Kayla.
I’m twenty one.
I’m afraid because ever since a sudden, terrible tragedy, I’m alone in the world—except for my brother’s best friend. But now Oliver intends to move back to London.
I’m in love with him. And I have to persuade him to stay…somehow.
Maybe if I tell him I’m a virgin and show him just how far I’m willing to go to keep him, he’ll give in.
Of course, I never expected that he’d be keeping a shocking secret of his own…
*Previously published in the Alphas of Sin Anthology

So this little lovely was originally released in the Alpha’s of Sin Anthology and is now being rereleased as a stand alone.

Oliver, Kayla, and Kayla’s brother Shane all live together, until the unexpected happens and Shane is suddenly gone and they are forced to deal with his death.
In the aftermath, Oliver decides to go back home to London. Why would a perfectly happy man decide to leave the home he has shared with two of his best friends?
Because he has wanted Kayla for a long time and now that Shane is gone he has no one to keep that wanting in check. He knows that if he gives in, that Kayla will miss out on a lot because once he has her his obsession will only grow and he will not let her out of his sight or bed. Little does he know that Kayla feels the same about him and has for a long time!!

From Becky

Book 1-

Purchased Book

James, James, James. Wow….all I can say! He met his match with Amy.  Damn…in the first few pages James showed his dominant side and Amy soaked it up. Amy was strong minded and stood her ground with James….except in the bedroom. James’ past plays a big part in how he is today.  Amy accepted James as he was and didn’t fear his past. The power struggle between James and Amy is great and watch out for sex… hot, hot hot!
Although James tries to surrender some control to Amy, he struggled with it. Amy needed space and walked away from James to find that space. I enjoyed the book so much that I drove right into Book 2. James and Amy were meant to be together and I couldn’t wait to see how Anna brings them together as she continued writing their story. A page turner I couldn’t put down!!
Loved it!

Book 2 –
Purchased Book
Of course James kept a watch on Amy. James and Amy finally got back together. Amy’s strong will and independence was a force that wouldn’t be pushed aside. James struggled with coming to terms with that force while keeping Amy safe and with him. Amy helped James heal through the results of his past so that he could give Amy what she needed….shared control. Their relationship was to be built on compromise outside the bedroom but James wasn’t giving up any control in the bedroom except for the fact that Amy had him hook, line, and sinker. Steamy hot!
OMG….and then Amy willing and wanting to go into the swanky club with James, his sister and her new husband …holy moly you knew it was gonna be good. It was! Then……People from James’ past play into the story. What spook!  James ‘ bodyguard Matthew and Amy’s bodyguard Sonia connect and are an item too… I am thinking that they will be the main characters in the future…😉
I couldn’t put the book down! A fantastic read! Can’t wait to see what Book 3 holds!

Ok, this is the bit where I have to sell myself. Why is it so much easier to write about sexy blokes! Anyway.

I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an Accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. It was also around this time that I became one of the founding members of a dramatic/erotic/dark roleplaying group on Twitter. It was wildly popular with both English and American followers. The writing helped me to overcome my depression by giving me an outlet to channel my thoughts into and not sit around worrying all day about things that would never happen. I took over responsibility for management of the group and responsibility for the development of our storylines. As well as playing at least ten different characters in the group ranging from an innocent virgin, bloodthirsty assassin and even a male lover. The success of the role-play spurred me on to writing novels.

I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality. Surrendered Control, my first book released in November 2016, combines two of my favourite travel destinations. India is where I lived for eighteen months with my husband and two children. My young son was only six months old when we travelled there. It was a fabulous time for us all and they learnt so much about the differing cultures, as well as, much to my husband’s chagrin, spending lots of money in the silk shops. The Control series will feature lots of international travel.

I have always been an avid reader. Mainly murder mystery in the past but with Beautiful Bastard I discovered a whole new set of novels and I haven’t looked back since. I like my hero’s hot and hunky with a dirty mouth. My heroines demur but with spunk. And my books in a kick arse series.
