#NewRelease #Revew #MontgomeryInk #Contemporary #1001DarkNights Ashes to Ink (Montgomery Ink Colorado Springs 2.5) by Carrie Ann Ryan

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a new story in her Montgomery Ink series…

Back in Denver, Abby lost everything she ever loved, except for her daughter, the one memory she has left of the man she loved and lost. Now, she’s moved next to the Montgomerys in Colorado Springs, leaving her past behind to start her new life.

One step at a time.

Ryan is the newest tattoo artist at Montgomery Ink Too and knows the others are curious about his secrets. But he’s not ready to tell them. Not yet. That is…until he meets Abby.

Abby and Ryan thought they had their own paths, ones that had nothing to do with one another. Then…they took a chance.

On each other.

One night at a time.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.*

 

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

Abby lost the love of her life too soon, they didn’t get to get married and he didn’t get to see their child born.  Yet, she knows he’s still there and does her best to instill in their daughter the love that he had for her.  She is moving on with her life of running her business and raising her daughter and is slowly learning that is ok to ask for help. Well, slowly learning because the Montgomery family has added her to their ever growing brood and telling her daily that it’s ok. Lol

Ryan, is a artist at Montgomery Ink Too.  He has a hard time letting anyone in too, but for a totally different reason.  He is attracted to Abby, but will never act on it if he has his way.

You can’t stop fate though.

Ryan has once again shows us why she is a great author by giving us a couple with real world issues, instead of a couple who just has no problems what so ever, have a great love and live happily ever after.  Abby and Ryan want each other and have to deal with their obstacles before they can.

She also shows us that family is not always about the blood that runs through your veins, but about the love that is in your heart and that is what the Montgomery family is all about.

#review #releaseday #TwinsieForTheDayBecky – Tainted Reasoning (Dark Sovereignty #2) by Anna Edwards

Tainted Reasoning (Dark Sovereignty #2)

“Why would I let the world see him? He’s imperfect. No, he needs to stick to the shadows where he’ll not bring shame to this family.”

William Cavendish is…different. Too much so for his merciless father to bear publicly. He was hidden away from the world his entire life until, in one dark moment, he did the unthinkable to save his beloved brother, gaining his own freedom in the process. But liberty has its own price. William struggles with a world he doesn’t understand, emotions he’s never experienced…and an alarming taste for the dark side he’s discovered dwelling within him.

Formally educated in law, Tamara Bennet is unlike most women of the day. Not bad for the daughter of a lowly lady’s maid. When she learns a secret society was responsible for the torture of her closest acquaintance, Victoria Cavendish, she vows to employ any and all means—legal or otherwise—to bring the society to its knees. At her side is Victoria herself, as well as Victoria’s husband, Nicholas, and his brother—the intriguing and troubled William.

Delving ever deeper into London’s darkest shadows, an undeniable attraction blooms between William and Tamara, bringing them closer and closer…until their actions stir up perilous forces determined to tear them apart.

Review by Becky

Tainted Reasoning, Dark Sovereignty Book 2  by Anna Edwards

I received the book for my honest review.

What can I say?!  Anna pulls us deeper into what remains of the Secret Society.  We learned that Nicolas was not like his evil father.  He married Victoria. Nicolas and William slowly started righting the wrongs of the Secret Society.  Victoria’s bestie, Tamara, was instantly drawn to William.  William grew up being hidden from the world by his father as well as being told he brought shame to the family…being less than the wonderful human being he was deep inside.  Just like Nicolas, William’s heart was good and that good would come out with Tamara.

William thought his rough, strong sexual desires and acts were evil. Oh baby, bring it on!!!  Tamara discovered that rough, strong sex is what she desired as well.  Tamara walks along side William and shows him he is not the only one who has Autism.  Tamara volunteered at a school that caters to those with Autism and brings William to visit as a surprise.  Seeing William open up and realize he is not a disgrace, was beautiful.

Viscount Hamilton is a *&%# bag.  Talk about warped.  Damn!  I anxiously await Joanna and Theodore’s story.  As evil as Hamilton is and all he has done, I have confidence that Anna will make sure he is properly castrated!!

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 heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth. My heroines demure but with spunk. And my books in a kick arse series.

#NewRelease #Review #Shifters #Paranormal Twist Of Fate (True Mates Generations Book 1) by Alicia Montgomery

Alicia Montgomery’s True Mates Series continues with a Twist of Fate!

Their orbits were so far apart

They might as well have lived on different planets

He was the son of the clan’s Beta

She was a nobody

But fate had other plans….

 

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

A old enemy returns for a new generation in this new series by Alicia Montgomery.

The children of the True Mates series are all grown up and getting stories of their own!!!

I absolutely love that we are back in New York with the True Mates, it’s like seeing old friends.

Montgomery starts the series with Astrid Jonassin the daughter of Meredith the wolf cat burglar and Daric the once evil turned good mage and Zac Vrost son of the New York clan’s Beta Nick and their human public liaison Cady.

Growing up Zac and Astrid were on the outside of each other’s circles, but that didn’t keep her from having a crush, and as he was older he really didn’t notice her.

Times they are a changing!!!!

Astrid is definitely her mother’s daughter, if you have not read the first series you gotta, she is a restless spirit trying to find her place but she ends up in trouble and has to be punished by the clan’s law and that means working for her mother and Zac’s dad.

Zac and Astrid touch hands for the first time and HELLO it’s  electrifying!!!!!

There is so much going on in their story but the thread that is about Zac and Astrid doesn’t get lost.

Alpha’s are stepping down, new leaders are stepping up, old enemies returning, and lets not forget that True Mates finding each other means BABIES.

I can not wait to see what is in store for this new generation and to see who will find love with who in the pack or if it will be someone new.

Title: Love and Pancakes

Author: Lacey Black

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Love and Pancakes:

Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.

Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.

What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Our first time together isn’t going to be on the floor or on the table.”

“I’m not opposed to the counter,” I whisper, apparently loud enough for him to hear.

Rhenn chuckles. “I promise you, our first time is going to be better than this,” he adds, nodding toward the floor, and believe it or not, I’m disappointed by this development. “Right now, my friends are probably getting ready for our day of sailing. We’re going to head back to my boat, you’re going to throw on a swimsuit, and I’m going to enjoy the fuck out of watching you prance around my boat. And tonight? I’m going to love sliding into that shitty-ass fold out bed, and do you know why?”

“Why?” My mouth is Sahara dry.

“Because you’re going to be beside me.”

“And because you’ll get sex?” I tease with a smile.

He shakes his head. “No, no sex tonight. Not with Nick and Meghan on board. When I finally have my way with you, there’ll be no one else around to hear your moans, Angel. No one else will know how many times I’ve made you come. No one but me.”

Then he kisses me again with a hunger that feels as if it won’t ever be quenched. Like he might die if he doesn’t have another taste. I know right then and there, I’m in trouble. I’m completely over my head with this man, which is why I must keep my heart completely out of the equation. In fact, I’m leaving it here at the house. No way am I taking it with me, allowing it to catch one glimpse of the man who kisses me like I’m the very air he breathes.

“And at the end of the two weeks, we walk away.” I say the words aloud, as confirmation to him, but to me, as well. Saying them makes it true, right?

“At the end of my time here, you probably won’t hear from me again.” Even though those are the words I expected to hear, actually listening to him say them causes a little hitch in my heartbeat. See? That’s why my heart is going to be locked in the cabinet at home and not allowed anywhere near my time with Rhenn.

“Just promise me one thing,” I say, pushing aside the heavy feeling in my chest and digging deep for the girl who’s engaging in a no-strings relationship.

“Anything.”

“Promise me you won’t fall in love with me.” I mean it as a joke, as a reminder of what this really is, but I don’t anticipate the catch in my breath and the slight pang of sadness when his eyes twinkle with laughter.

“No worries there, Angel. Love isn’t my thing.”

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #review #erotica – Anaconda Nights by Elissa Daye

Anaconda Nights

Some say ignorance is bliss, at least that’s what Tinley tries to tell herself when she sees the fresh meat on display at Anaconda. When she steps on the party bus, she has no idea it will be leading her to an exclusive resort with escorts that cater to a rich woman’s every need.

At first, she is afraid to give in, but when Adam enters the scene she can’t seem to get enough of him. His hard body, sweet silky voice, his eyes…if she could actually see them. All the men at Anaconda wear masks to protect their identities while keeping them mysteriously sexy at the same time.

All the same, she can’t help but wonder what would happen if she just tore the mask off. Would she be pleased with what she saw, or would the person beneath the mask lead her down a whole other rabbit hole altogether?

Goodreads

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

When Elissa asked if I would like to read her new steamy novel, I said sure thing.  Who can pass up steamy right???  I liked the premise of the story and the whole “mystery man” so I jumped in.

Our girl Tinley is a hot mess.  She is so worried that people don’t take her seriously because she is a woman, that she works herself to the bone.  When her sister is getting married and is having her bachelorette night, she forces Tinley to come.  She doesn’t tell her where they are going which is essentially a legal reverse brothel.  Instead of the ladies doing the servicing, it’s the men who are.  Needless to say, Tinley freaks.  When she meets her “escort” for the night she is a bit stunned at how good of a time they had and books another weekend with him.

Seeing Tinley realize she can be a woman, feminine annnnd formidable in the workplace was priceless.  Tinley reconnects with herself and soon embraces her sensual female side thanks to her time with Adam.  When the next weekend happens and we find out who Adam is really…..welllll, I think we all saw it coming .

Seeing Tinley deal with her feelings and emotions while making major life changes after her weekend was awesome.  We also see Tinley making Adam work for a chance at a future with her.  The couple have some serious issues because she is worried she can’t satisfy man who has been “hooking” up with multiple ladies or so she thinks.

I enjoyed the story and liked the ending scene.  It was really sweet but super funny as well.

Ever since childhood, I have enjoyed reading stories as an escape from life. When I was a teenager I started to write my own stories that kept me entertained whenever I ran out of books to read. When I was accepted into Illinois Summer School for the Arts in my Junior year of High School, I knew I wanted to become a writer. I graduated from Illinois State University in December 1999 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and began my teaching career, hoping to find moments to write in my free time.

After seven years of teaching, I decided to focus on my writing and made the decision to put my teaching years behind me so that I could create the stories I had always dreamed of. I am now happily married and a stay at home mom. I try my best to master the art of multitasking to get everything accomplished and write in any spare moment I can find.

 

 

#WOTR19 #Review – Promises by Aleatha Romig

 

 

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity continues with the epic conclusion of the all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Learn the truth behind the secrets and lies.

Surrounded by secrets and lies, can promises be believed?

Promises is book three—Sterling and Araneae’s epic conclusion—of the acclaimed Web of Sin trilogy.

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Kobo | APPLE BOOKS | B&N | Google Play

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

I have been eagerly awaiting this release.  The last book left me wondering what Kennedy/Araneae would do.  When she is cornered what will she do?  Pick Sterling or will she betray him???

I Could. Not. Put. This. Book. Down.  Family be damned!!!  The twists and turns were epic and totally in Aleatha style.

Sterling is the PERFECT Anti-Hero.  We watch this arrogant prick change with each encounter he had with Araneae.  We see his dark becoming a little bit lighter due to her love, rose colored glasses, and constant support even when he locks her in the glass tower.

Araneae.  DAMN she is a tough cookie.  She is never weak but maybe a little naïve to how the world works even with her past history.  When we see her push back with each command Sterling gives her and we see him bend a smidge for her…sign….I mean he started to ASK not COMMAND. That is huge for him. LOL

I loved how each step of the book we uncover more and more of the reason of why Araneae’s birth farther did what he did.  We start to learn more and more about her birth mother and “adoptive” family too and the roles they played in her upbringing.  But what I loved was the “key” to everything was right where it all began.

This is another epic read for me from this author.  I can’t say enough about the chemistry between the characters.  Its so steamy and hawt.  I loved the family element from  Araneae’s past, Sterling’s past, and their present family of friends.  I would love to see Reid and Lorna plus Winnie and Patrick get some book time *Wiggle eyes* but I am STOKED to see Mason is getting a book.  I hope we will get a look Sterling and Araneae to see what they are up too in this series.

#WOTR19 #YA #Pararnomal #Fae – Portal through the Veil by Miranda Lynn

Portal Through the Veil

An heir, set to rule over all of Faery, on one condition- that she marry and take a King to rule at her side. Her father is determined to see her wed to a prince of his choosing, however, Tatianna has other plans. Plans that don’t involve tying the knot. What this princess didn’t anticipate, was the unexpected guest to what was, essentially, her engagement festival.

Kallan, prince of the dark court- was not only unexpected, but uninvited. He knew it would be a risk to show up. Not only was he a dark fae, but a human as well. It would all be worth it though to see her again. When light meets dark- and two worlds collide- secrets, lies and betrayals are exposed.

Luckily, fate, magic and a bit of divine intervention will help to bring balance back to the land of Faery. No matter the cost.

Goodreads

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

When Miranda asked if I would be interested in this book, I was a little bit hesitant because YA isn’t really my thing but TBH, I dug it.  But I also didn’t think it had a YA feel about it.  LOL!!  There wasn’t any high school drama and all that jazz.  This was about a princess….scratch that….and independent, free thinking, strong willed princess who didn’t need ANY man to rule with her.  Nope *pops the P*

However, she must have a King just like a King would have to have a Queen in order to rule the land.  Well our girl Tatianna is none to thrilled and even more angry when she finds out her dad is forcing her to court some Fae he finds suitable for her.  UHM Nope our girl is not happy until……Kallan strolls into the party uninvited.  Then she is kinda flipping her hair and giving him the “eye”.

The couple are drawn together, and the story begins to fly at this point.  We learn there is someone who is causing trouble for Tatianna in her family’s kingdom plus Kallan’s kingdom has suffered as well.  The couple need to work together to figure out what to do and who they can trust to solve the trouble.

The story was a really quick read.  I sat down and devoured it.  I love how strong-willed Tatianna was and at the same time how Kallan seemed impressed with the strength she has.  Plus he was impressed with how she was willing to listen to what he told her vs what she know about The Dark Court.

Mother to two boys, 3 four legged babies, and wife to a loving husband who doesn’t mind the extra voices in her head. Miranda grew up on a dairy farm in Illinois, but calls Portland, TN home now. She is an avid reader, coffee addict, and loves her day job working at the local public library. Though her true passion is in creating her own worlds, characters, and stories for her readers.

 

 

#Review #NewRelease – Shenanigans (Pretense and Promises Book 2) by Jade C. Jamison

Shenanigans (Pretense and Promises Book 2)

Conor Hammond is desperate.

Well, not quite—but desperate enough to do something potentially stupid. His high school reunion is right around the corner and, now that he’s a wealthy business owner, all those girls who used to diss him will want to hit on him—and he needs a buffer. His assistant Morgan Tredway’s going to help out by playing his fiancée for the weekend.

But then Conor notices how nice Morgan’s legs look in those red heels…and Morgan remembers how she used to have a crush on her boss. That doesn’t stop them from telling themselves that these shenanigans are just distractions. It’ll be back to business as usual come Monday morning.

Except the emotions feel real.

When Conor’s propositioned by the ultimate trophy girlfriend and Morgan’s ex comes crawling back to her, will they look back on their weekend romance as just a fling or seal the deal?

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

Mo and Connor are a great couple…..errr…..a great boss/assistant couple.  They have a great vibe and a wonderful ability to bounce off each other.  When Connor hangs with is buddy Brock and follows his “Fake Fiancée” idea, he soon finds out not only are they compatible in the boardroom but the bedroom too!!

Connor is the nerd turned stud in his high school class.  He doesn’t want to deal with the gold diggers, so he asks his friend Morgan to save him from the claws and a possible future ex-wife.  Morgan is angry and hurt over being dumped by her ex, so she agrees because she she is getting paid and new shoes outta the deal…can’t hurt right???

As the weekend goes forward, Connor and Mo start to feel the sizzle of chemistry when they both see each other as more then just a boss/assistant.  They both start to wonder…..what if.  When Connors dream girl from high school makes her intentions knows, Morgan has to keep her lips zipped because this is Connors dream girl….or is it???  Connor has always lusted over Raquel and when she throws herself at him, he is conflicted because she isn’t Morgan!!!

I loved the banter between Morgan and Connor.  Its obvious they enjoy each other’s company and personalities.  I liked seeing this friendship cross that line to MORE and then struggle with wondering if they made a mistake.

Side Note – I liked how the epilogue was written.  The style was GREAT for this couple and story!!

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging instead of Dirty Dancing, she—like Baby—won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance—and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?

 

#NewRelease #Revew #Shifter #EndOfSeries #TalonPack Forever Broken (Talon Pack Book 9) by Carrie Ann Ryan

In the finale to the award-winning Talon Pack series from NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan sets, the final Brentwood must find his mate as the war with the Aspens comes to a close.

Cheyenne Liles has watched all of her friends mate into the Talon Pack and have their lives changed forever, one by one. She’s stood back, helpless to assist in the war with a rival Pack. But just when she thinks her time with the Talons is over and believes she should move on with her human life, the Aspen Pack Alpha takes matters into his own hands, altering her fate far more than a single mate mark ever could.

Max Brentwood used to be the smiling one, the only Brentwood who was somehow able to save his soul during the last Alpha’s reign. But his life was irrevocably changed one fateful day on the battlefield, and he was never the same again. Suddenly, Max is forced to face his future and make a choice when Cheyenne comes into danger: let fate decide, or watch his world crumble around him.

The shifters of this world have fought demons, humans, and themselves. Now, it’s time to find out who they truly are as the war between the Packs ends, and the moon goddess finally takes a stand.

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

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I hate when a series I loves ends, but Carrie Ann Ryan knows how to end on a awesome note.

The Talon pack has been through so much since the start of the series and have only gotten stronger.

Max Brentwood is one member that has been through more than one person can possibly go through and stay sane.  He is the family member that was not blessed by the Moon Goddess with a high position of power in the pack and he was perfectly fine with that.  He was the happy brother/cousin after the hell that they went through as kids, however none he’s not so happy go lucky anymore.

Cheyenne Liles has learned that there is more than just humans in this world, it also has shifters and witches, crazy yes but she can handle it.  She has also watched has her three best friends find love in that supernatural world and as shifters and witches they will all have to watch her the human grow old and fade away and she doesn’t want that so she starts pulling away from them.

Omg, so much happens in this story and it all starts with a kidnapping and attempted murder and ends with a blessing from the Moon Goddess that changes things forever.

Max and Cheyenne have always been sort of drawn together, watching the others from across the room whenever they are together.  

I totally love that Max, who has been through so much, found his mate in Cheyenne they totally make sense together.

Together they have to  do what they can do find a end to the psychotic Alpha of the Aspen pack Blade.

Ryan has done it once again, wrote a beautiful love story within a story that has a ending of old ways and the beginning of new.  That has a hint of danger, a touch of mystery, a lot of passion.

I am sad to see the end of the Brentwood family, glad to see that they finally get the happiness that they deserve, and so very pumped to know that we have not seen the last of the shifter world from the mind of Carrie Ann Ryan!!!!
