#NewRelease #TwinseForTheDayTenise #Review – Give Me Love by Paige P Horne

Give Me Love (Give Me, #1)

A past that connects them and secrets that could destroy them.

Abandoned by her mother at only eight years old, Kathrine Harrison was taught that relying on yourself is the only way. She grew up in chaos, getting abused by her stepdad who reminded her daily that she wasn’t worth loving.

Bryce Grant was used to his dad’s drinking but couldn’t understand why the man was obsessed with a woman who constantly chose drugs over her family. Bryce cared for only one person and did everything he could to keep his brother, Jace, from witnessing just how bad their parents were. Tragedy changes the boys’ lives and sets them on a path they have never envisioned for themselves.

Meeting by chance, Kat and Bryce have no idea how much they have in common and love is not a choice.

Can it change how they see things, or will it destroy the life they’ve worked so hard to maintain?

Review by Tenise

5 STARS! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
A past that connects them and secrets that could destroy them. Meeting by chance, Kat and Bryce have no idea how much they have in common and love is not a choice. Can it change how they see things, or will it destroy the life they’ve worked so hard to maintain?
I want to start by saying-before opening this book- I couldn’t get into anything I tried to read. It had been almost a week since I finished my last book and that had taken me almost 2 weeks to read. Well, thanks to Give Me Love, my reading drought is now over. I was addicted to all of the words from the prologue. Give Me Love was full of angst, suspense, and surprises. There was a lot of push and pull between Bryce and Kat. They knew what they wanted, but were afraid to go for it. With past like theirs, I would be afraid, too.
I loved both the H & h throughout the entire book. At a certain point they both kind of ticked me off. I wanted to reach into my kindle; grab them, shake them, and tell them what to do. We all know that is not how this works though. It’s not like the “choose your own adventure” books from grade school where the reader decides the outcome. Haha! Nope- I just had to continue reading and hope things turned out the way I had them planned in my head.
I seriously could not finish this book fast enough, which may have been a mistake on my part. Now I have to impatiently wait for the second book so I can see what will happen next. I am looking forward to the continuation of Bryce and Kat’s story.

Paige P. Horne lives in the small town of Gray Georgia with her husband. The two enjoy traveling every little chance they get and binge watching their favorite shows. When she isn’t creating new characters for her readers to fall in love with, you can find her back porch swinging, engrossed in a good book with her dogs at her feet.

Readers have described her stories as captivating and heartbreakingly beautiful.

Paige pens emotional novels about soulmates and broken love.
She will release a series of four books this year, The Give Me series. Give Me love, Give Me Perfect love, Give Me Forever Love and a fourth which has not yet been named.

Her titles include: Close To Falling, Chasing Fireflies, Chasing Ellie and her latest book which is based on true events: If I’d Known

#WOTR20 #NewRelease – Next to You by Amabel Daniels

Next To Me

Hell to the no.

That’s what personal assistant Carly Winston wants to say to her boss when he tasks her with delivering his ring to his flaky fiancée. And again when the annoyingly sexy head of security, Maverick Green, is instructed to accompany her. Not wanting to lose her job, she bites her tongue. Sure, she has no desire to complicate her life with a relationship. But if she can avoid Maverick’s appeal as her next-door neighbor, surely one whirlwind trip with him won’t change anything.

Well aware Carly has made it her life goal to avoid men, Mav Green has fought the temptation to pursue her. Now, he’s been charged with making sure the ring she’s delivering stays safe, and that’s exactly what he’s going to do. Little does he know, fate has a plethora of shenanigans in store for them. A robbery. Drag queens. Battles against nature. Each of their crazy hijinks is wilder than the last, and sparks undeniable chemistry between the pair.

Thrust into a seemingly impossible job, will the time spent with Mav be enough to melt Carly’s icy façade?

#Review #Paranormal #NewRelease – Dungari Reclaim (Alien Alphas of Pilathna #2) by Nikki Landis

Dungari Reclaim (Alien Alphas of Pilathna, #2)

Pasha was raised to hate the invading blue race of aliens that enslaved her home planet. She’s never forgotten their lies or treachery. When her sister is taken and never returns, Pasha swears her vengeance on the alien race of conquerors.

Holnar is an elite warrior of his clan and never believed in the atrocities the humans accused the Dungari race of committing. Until his shocking and brutal experience in the harems. Now he’s torn between loyalty and lust, lies and seduction that lead his people to the brink of all-out war.

When the past haunts the future and no one is safe from the rage that consumes a nation, what side will be chosen? Who will win? Does Earth have the courage it needs to reclaim a fallen planet?

Dungari Reclaim is second in a new exciting series of alien romances with heat, Alien Alphas of Pilathna.

Dungari Reclaim (Alien Alphas of Pilathna #2) by Nikki Landis

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Another amazing read from this author.  I was a bit nervous entering this word in the last book.  This book I knew what to expect and I was so excited to see where we would go.

This book does not disappoint.  There are many times in the story with Pasha and Holnar’s past troubles that made my heart ache for them.  Pasha is straight up broken and very bitter woman after her heart break.  She is very driven and will so her job.  Holnar won’t succumb to the ugly side of loss thought.  He is not like everyone else and will do what he can for everyone.

There is so much happening so buckle up because you are in for one heck of a ride.  This story is just as amazing as the first book.  I am super excited for book 3 and cant wait to see what happens then.

Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path. 
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book


I am so glad that Teresa Gabelman decided to do a spin-off for the mates of the VC Warriors.  She did a great job giving us the first book in the series with Nicole and she’s on a roll with the second book Tessa.
If you have read the series you know that Tessa is a strong woman that can and will do what is needed.  Tessa’s only problem, I feel, is that she has a huge problem with seeing herself has that woman.  Oh, sure on some level she knows she’s a strong person but deep down she truly doesn’t feel it because she doesn’t know herself.
Now her mate is one alpha male VC Warrior known as Jared Kincade.  Jared has slowly dropped down the list of my favorite warriors because he has what I like to call douchebagitis.  He’s always been in my top three and lets face it if I  had him as my number one Twinsie Angie would kill me, which is cool because I’ve been in love with Slade since he walked onto the pages of Duncan’s book.
Sorry, sorry, thought of Slade and lost track, LOL, back to Tessa and Jared.
Since the mates have been training with the warriors to all the Males have slowly stood behind their mates decision, with the exception of Jared and it has been causing a rift to form.
In this story we get to see Tessa find and total believe in herself and her power as a woman and a vampire.  Major secrets are spilled by Jared, which is the reason he has been behaving the way he has, and we get to see a group of new vamps called The Dark Guardians.  We are also get to see Tessa and Adam’s POS father for the first time too.
There’s passion, drama, and you’ll need tissues because there is also tears with this one.  I’m excited to see where Gabelman is going with the demon outbreak and to see who the next mate is gonna be.
I do have one small side note for her, well it’s more of a request, more Slade please!!!!  Hee, hee, hee, I don’t see where having more of him in any book is a bad thing.
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.

Will Katie and Dax find each other in time to save everyone from The New Templars whose mission is to rid the world of all magic?

Hell hath no fury…. Like a Jimmy Choo wearing woman from Palm Beach being forced to wear hiking boots in the middle of the woods. Ha! Right from the very beginning, Katie is a pain in the rear and you just know she is going to be trouble. Women, even the strong ones, are all trouble, lol! But, with that being said, so are the boys….all trouble!

Fawn and Katie are both from Palm Beach and Fawn is going to marry the Alpha, Bo, of Big Timber. Katie is dragging her feet, complaining about everything saying nothing good will come of this. In the meantime, the packs in the area are all hurting from Kallus’ attack. Dax has reluctantly assumed the position as Alpha of Crazy Peak. His pack has suffered greatly and he goes to Big Timber asking for help. Unfortunately, Big Timber doesn’t want to help as they are dealing with their own issues as well, but none of the packs are communicating. Dax is going crazy with The Hunger. Katie all of a sudden gets incredibly sick. And then things get really crazy. Pack members are coming up missing or dead. Other packs do come to help. We are then introduced to a cult like group obsessed with exterminating abominations. The girls come up missing. The guys are going crazy. And then, and then, and then…… 

Dax’s and Katie’s story will rival many. These two are at a point that they can’t live without each other. True mates. The story is action packed. Full of drama, suspense, and beautiful magic. Once you start the story, you will have a hard time putting it down. I started laughing from the start thinking about how much alike Katie and I are. And watching how these girls keep all the guys on their toes is amazing. It was an incredible story of love while overcoming discriminations and injustices. A beautiful HEA seeing the mates come together as well as the packs. Loving this addition to A Wolf’s Hunger.

#NewRelease, #Review, #MontgomeryInk, Wrapped in Ink(Montgomery Ink: Boulder #1) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink saga continues with a new series set in Boulder, where a family secret might just change everything.

One mistake at a friend’s wedding rocks Liam Montgomery’s entire world, and everything he thought was true turns out to be a lie. But when an accident lands him in the ER, Liam meets someone that might just be the distraction he needs.

Arden Brady has spent her life in and out of hospitals. But according to the world, she doesn’t look sick. She’s lost jobs and friends because they don’t see beneath the surface, but she’s learned to rely on her family and herself to keep going. And then she meets Liam.

With two sets of overprotective siblings and a puppy that can’t help but get into everything, Liam and Arden might just fall harder than either one ever expected. 



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


Can we say HELLO Liam Montgomery!!!!  Ah Liam, the name brings to mind Liam Neeson, Liam Hemsworth, and now Liam Montgomery.  I love Liams hee, hee, hee!!
Now with Wrapped in Ink we are onto another branch of the Montgomery tree.  I have to say whoever planned that tree must have been a angel because everyone of them, male and female, are as hot as they are talented.
Liam is a former model turned writer and he’s the Boulder branch’s pretty boy because of it.
Arden Brady has been through hell and sometimes she revisits that most awesome of places when she doesn’t want to, lets face it she never wants to.
Liam and Arden meet in the most unlikely of places…….. a hospital.
What happens next is a story of a man trying to deal with a identity crisis and a woman who doesn’t know how to deal with a man who might not go away like has always happened to her in the past.
Liam thinks that he can use Arden as a distraction but soon discovers he needs her as much as she needs him.
Once again Ryan writes of a couple that could be your next door neighbors. While her characters are talented and beautiful, they are also very down to earth and go through things that we here in the real world deal with.  With Liam it’s a secret from his parents past that he has to deal with and with Arden it’s her health.  Along with the Boulder Montgomerys we meet Arden’s four over protective, over bearing brothers. They are all alpha males, but they make your heart stop every time they are in a scene.
Like with every Montgomery Book you don’t have to have read the series but it helps if  you like to get a whole world view of these characters and their family.
I’m excited to see more of the Montgomery’s and to maybe get another glimpse of the Brady Brothers.
Before I head out i forgot to mention one tiny little thing……………….
THE COVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Holy cover models Batman, this cover has become one of my favorite covers that Carrie Ann Ryan has.
He captured Liam perfectly!!

#ReleaseDay #review – Keeping Ava (Police and Fire: Operation Alpha) by Elena M. Reyes

Keeping Ava (Police and Fire: Operation Alpha)

I should have said no.

When they asked me to take over this assignment and protect her with my life.

When at the sight of her, my heart beat like a war drum inside my chest.

When those light green eyes met mine and the world stopped.

I should’ve—but didn’t.

And now it’s too late because I’ve broken the rules and tasted the forbidden fruit.

I’ll never let her go.


Goodreads


I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Guuurl do I love your books.  They are so naughty and steamy they melt my kindle.  I have missed reading your stuff because life so when I got this I was thrilled!!

This story is a sexy as hell cop and of course a virgin.  Now don’t go all hating on that story because its awesomely good!!  Yes its cliché but it still rocked out with giant cop c*ck!  OOOF I made this filthy already.

The story has suspense and twists like we expect from Elena.  It also has her big bad alpha hero, Elijah, looking to do everything to save Ava.

Seriously a great book to read!!!

Elena M. Reyes is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.

As a small child, she was always intrigued by all forms of art: whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure, but it wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world.

She’s a short and sassy Latina with an adorable pup, a kiddo that keeps her on her toes, and a husband who claims she’ll cause him to go bald prematurely. Lol
