#WOTR21 #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Before Us (Next Generation 3) by J.M. Walker

Our relationship was toxic.

Intense.

Brutal.

When she slipped out of my hotel room, I made it my mission to have her back in my bed.

She ran.

I chased.

And when we finally crashed, I’d have to save her from the one person she trusted most…

Me.

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Oh wow this is probably my favorite book from this series. Get a glance at each of the sisters and their loved ones point of view as they get ready to have the finally sister walk down the aisle to her future husband. Plus a lot of dirty thoughts the girls dad takes all of the grandkids home with him and his girlfriend for the evening giving all the parents a much needed night off. Plus grandma Emma drops a huge ball.

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.

A chance meeting with a gorgeous woman leaves him restless and anxious for something he swore he’d never want again–love.

#review #shortstory Dirty Little Secret Santa by Alexis Adaire


 

All Callie wanted for Christmas was a good man.

All Grayson wanted was a good woman.

Luckily, they were both on Santa’s “Nice” list.

But if they don’t quit ignoring the obvious and let Santa’s magic work, they might never get together.

Looks like Santa will have to dig deep into his bag to pull off this very special Christmas gift

Callie wanted one thing for christmas a boyfriend thats not too much to ask right? Well thats was she finds herself asking Santa for when her niece makes her also sit on his lap at the mall. Greyson finds himself giving Santa a ride to the bus stop after hes done at the mall and when Santa ask him what he wants for christmas he says a good girl who is hot. well you can call it fate or a christmas miracle but with the help from Santa these two path were forced to cross and nothing was going to stop it from them meeting up. how many signs does it take for them to get the hint if they do at all. just remember your never too old to believe in the magic of Santa

Living in the Pacific Northwest, Alexis Adaire spends too much time indoors, cuddling under blankets, emerging from the bedroom periodically to refill her coffee mug and write stories.

Alexis likes to take her readers to those secret, unspeakable corners of their fantasies they barely even knew existed.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Feel My Love (Lovelly Book 4) by Clara Stone


When it comes to family, truth matters.

For Vincent Gallo, family is everything. It’s the one thing he and the Lovellys have always seen eye to eye on. And when it comes to saving his half-brothers from their abusive mom, he’s determined to do anything—even be indebted to a Lovelly. 

But the second Ivy Rose bumps into him, she’s all he can think about. Mesmerizing, gorgeous, and seemingly mute, it’s not until he gets home that he realizes, she’s a Lovelly, too. Suddenly, he understands what drew Ace and Jessica to the Lovellys. But as a long-lost half-sister, Ivy’s life hasn’t seen the privilege bestowed upon her brothers. In fact, in some ways, it mirrors Vincent’s own.

With his half-brothers’ future at stake, can he really afford to let his heart win? Or is falling for Ivy Rose a distraction that’ll cost him everything?

I was given this book and this is my honest opinion

I don’t even know how to form words for how much I loved this book. The Lovelly family has been in my heart for years and to see the last book have the end typed out hurts my heart I wasn’t ready to say goodbye but it was a great book for saying goodbye with. Ivy is the long lost sibling that has just found the Lovelly’s and at first she doesn’t want to leave her life now even though it’s not the perfect life it was her. Vincent grew up with a drug addicted step mother, has been in jail for anger issues, and is now trying to turn his life around and get custody of his 3 younger brothers from his step mom. One day he ran into a girl at the mall and ended up with Dr Pepper all over him and well you might say it was love at first sight once he looked into Ivy’s eye. This love story is one for the books it’s heartwarming, selfless and beautiful Ivy and Vincent are the prefect storm.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Clara Stone writes YA/NA Contemporary Romance and Paranormal Romance stories and is a complete sucker for sweet, memorable kisses. She strongly believes that true love conquers EVERYTHING, along with a tub of Ice cream!

When she isn’t reading or writing or dancing, much to the embarrassment of her husband and two kids, she’s probably watching Supernatural and The Walking Dead.

#REVIEW – Secret Slave by Anna Ruston

You’re not going home. You’re not going anywhere. You’re mine now.

Growing up in a deeply troubled family, 15-year-old Anna felt lost and alone in the world. So when a friendly taxi driver befriended her, Anna welcomed the attention, and agreed to go home with him to meet his family. She wouldn’t escape for over a decade.

Held captive by a sadistic paedophile, Anna was subjected to despicable levels of sexual abuse and torture. The unrelenting violence and degradation resulted in numerous miscarriages, and the birth of four babies… each one stolen away from Anna at birth.

Her salvation arrived thirteen years too late, but despite her shattered mind and body, Anna finally managed to flee. This is her harrowing, yet uplifting, true story of survival.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I’ve had this book on my kindle for a long time now. I saw the paperback at an airport during my travels but completely forgot I had purchased the ebook until I was looking through my list of books that I haven’t read yet.

After finishing my last book, I decided to open this one up and I have not felt this consumed by a story in…well…in forever. It has taken me on a journey, one that I’m thankful I’ve never had to experience in real life.

This book is about a girl who was kidnapped at the age of 15 and abused for 13 years. This is NOT a romance. Not in the least. It’s based on true events and guys, it hurts. It hurts so freaking much. I had to take a break after every chapter.

I’m a romance reader. I will always be a romance reader. I love my horror and darker reads as well. Dark romance is one of my favourite things to write but reading it, knowing that it actually happened to some poor little girl or that it happens every day…it was the hardest book I have read in quite a long time. Maybe ever.

If you love to read books based on true events, then I highly suggest this one. But please be warned, bad things happen. Awful, unspeakable things happen. But I think everyone needs to know this little girl’s story.

#WOTR20 #Review – Blindly Indicted (Paranormal Prison) by Katie May

Blindly Indicted (Paranormal Prison)

I lived my life as a prisoner.

I’ve always been told stories about the real world, but I haven’t seen it for myself. All I have ever known is pain.

And darkness.

They tell me I have been blind since birth.

When I make my escape, I think freedom is finally within my grasp…

Until I’m captured by the paranormal police for a murder I didn’t commit. Apparently, I have powers—powers I have always suspected myself of having.

Normal people can’t see through other people’s eyes, right?

Thrust into Nightmare Penitentiary, I meet a group of hard, alpha, psychotic inmates who believe I’m the answer to all their prayers. Me? I’m just trying to survive and figure out what it means to live. My new home isn’t just a prison, but a labyrinth with horrors around every corner.

But what if the cost of my life is my freedom? Am I willing to trade one cage for another?

Welcome to Nightmare Penitentiary where you come in handcuffs and leave in a body bag.

This is NOT a bully romance. These men are all hardened criminals and extreme alphas, but they adore their female. Be prepared to enjoy a painfully naïve female main character who slowly grows as the book progresses and a group of psychotic, murderous males. This book contains strong language, sexual situations, and a reverse harem romance.

Welcome to the Land of Misfit Toys…only for Monsters. I loved the concept of this story and was sucked right in once I read the blurb. I am rounding this up to 4 because there were some really amazing parts of the story. I started the book and was completely engrossed, I mean completely sucked in. We start right when Nina is escaping a hell hole. She is blind but can see through other’s eyes. She has been held captive from a very young age. When the author puts in the blurb “ Be prepared to enjoy a painfully naive female main character who slowly grows as the book progresses…”, this is exactly what you will get. Nina is smart but really is painfully naive and at times I had to roll my eyes at just how dense she was. But we get beyond this, she is being framed for a murder she didn’t commit and is deposited in Nightmare Penetentiary, a labryinth prison for paranormal criminals. Little does she know, her best friend, Kai, who was imprisoned with her in the hell hole she escaped from, ends up being king of the prison she is deposited in. But from here we meet all of his comrades, right hand men, lackeys, whatever you want to call them. They are all equally as twisted and insane as the next but all very different from one another. The one thing they have in common is Nina. They are all drawn to her. Here is where the book lost me for a bit…We have to get to know her harem. Which is great and what we need to do but some of it took much more time than needed and sometimes felt a little unnecessary to the story itself. I was expecting more of the “action” and “story” while getting to know these crazy men with all their hawtness and alpha crazy coming out, but it seemed like the “action” and “story” were put on hold while getting to know them. However, the storyline amps back up again and takes you into a lot of “WTFs” and “where the hell did that come from?” type of stuff. So, it indeed drew me back in and turned out to have some crazy twists and turns that I needed. Although this isn’t one of my absolute favorites, I did enjoy the story and am intrigued enough to check out other stories from this author.

Hello!
Well, I’m supposed to talk about something interesting. So I have two cats and two dogs (killing it). I am a romance author. I love to write and read anything with a strong, female lead and the men who love her.
