Review by Twinsie Angie
SO I will admit, I haven’t read an MC book/series in along time. When the genre blew up, this girl devoured allllll the books but lately I have just passed when offered books. Well I have recently become obsessed with Michel’s library of books (Hello Two Ink Minimum is amazing!!) and so I was like OK Lets Do IT!! SO I grabbed the book and started listening…..FRIENDS!!! YES!!!! This book was everything I needed in a story. Yes its an MC but those elements weren’t overpowered in the story?? Does that make sense. Yes the club is there and club rules are visible but the characters took the story and my heart.
Josh/Red is a nomad and looking to go home because his father has passed away and his mom needed him at the family ranch. While he is riding, he sees something in the desert and rushes to see who it is. He can hear the wild animals getting closer, so he is worried. What he sees hits him in the gut. He is looking at a battered and essentially dead woman.
Nova/Roadkill thinks she is being lifted to heaven and is stunned when she opens her eyes in a room. She is surrounded by strangers and these blue eyes that she remembered from when she was dying. Nova has no idea what happened or even what her name is hence the club name of Roadkill.
The couple have a great natural building of chemistry. Red wants to help her while also protect her. The banter and seriousness of her attack forms a bond that neither is ready for and both try to push away.
Red is the first to realize he wants Nova forever but knows she is a mess and is probably not sure what the club life is like since she got some 2nd hand not particularly true information.
The couple go through a lot like moving to Montana to start a Steel MC Charter club, dealing with that past she had hidden away in her mind, solving some crimes against women, and falling in love.
Red is a no-nonsense guy. He won’t fight his feelings and is doing everything he can for Nova to realize her place is with him. Nova hasn’t ever had a real family or had people who generally cared for her, so this new “Family” is confusing and scary. But Nova is a bad ass chick who embraces the title Property.
I am so excited to read the story of the rest of the characters. I admit Baldy is the one I am more excited for because his character just screamed at me the most but knowing the next book is Cass, I am stoked!!

I was given this book by the author for an honest opinion
I’m reviewing just Charmed by Mary Martel
Oh my this was such a good story Clover is a kickass momma wolf who will do anything to protect her daughter. At the age of 17 Clover ran away from home after she had been raped by her father’s beta wolf and she then found out she was pregnant and she would not let her daughter be around a monster like that. But 7 years later she found herself heading back home where she would hope her daughter would never know. But with the death of her father she knew she would be the new alpha but going back home would mean facing the one man who hurt you the most. Will she keep on the journey home or will she take her daughter and turn around and run in a different direction. Oh I loved this story and Rosie is hilarious I loved that little girl and her mom is just as amazing.
This review is for Mary Martel – Charmed
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
This was a great quick read and I would love more of this would and clover and her guards.
Clover took off as a teen left everything and everyone she knew. She was the Alpha’s daughter and wheat she endured she felt would have crumbled the pack. After being away for several years she feels the called to take her place as Alpha.
Upon arriving home Clover realizes a few things. First, her pack still loves her and still has her back. Not only do they have her back but her daughter, Rosie’s too. Her dad knew she would return and placed three men as her guards.
There was instant chemistry between Clover and the three guards. Gunn, Price and Black have known Clover was the one before she ever arrived home. I enjoyed reading about this pack not only Clover, Rosie, and the guys but also her aunt Layla. I loved that Rosie nicknamed Black the silver one and wrapped all three of them around her little finger. This was an enjoyable read but really would like more.
Losing a parent lift a hole inside your chest that never healed, no matter how often you tried to plug it up. The pain faded in time, but it never fully went away. Some memory would crop up out of the blue and hit you right in the feels. Next thing you knew, your ass would be on the floor bleeding form an invisible wound.

She didn’t expect to find Ethan Bailey waiting for her, a strange man who kindles in her powerful—but unwanted—feelings of familiarity. When a treasured childhood toy transports her into an imaginary world, Cassandra will come face-to-face with a man that looks just like Ethan, but whose medieval garb tells a different story.

All proceeds from this collection will go charities that support mental health research and aide.
I was gifted this book by the author after winning it in an author takeover.
Rocky Mountain Meltdown by Harley Easton
This was a sweet and quick read. The story is about an author who along with her rival are checked into a ski resort for the weekend of writing and working.
Tessa is none to thrilled for the burly lumberjack, Bryce, who seems to keep judging her but is thankful for the hot as heck ski instructor, Kevin….or is she.
It seems our burly and grumpy lumberjack has a few secrets in the closet in regard to Tessa and her writing.
The story made me laugh at the antics of our rival author because who doesn’t love to see an enemy get their much deserved paybacks! But seeing the connection between Bryce and Tessa develop and the ending chapter was a sweet ending to the story.
Off-Season by Marie Piper
This story was probably my favorite of the set of stories.
Eva was left her uncle’s diner in a small rafting town. Eva is quite happy to live her life in solitude because she doesn’t feel she is good enough to be with the person she really desires. Her fear and insecurity make her push him away at every turn.
Charlie is the owner of the main rafting group in the area and he is head over heals for Eva. He has no idea what he did in the past to make her run but he is dead set on claiming her for the new year.
The couple have major issues because Eva thinks so many wrong things about Charlie is doesn’t really believe him when he tells her the truth. When a scary situation with Charlie makes Eva run to help him, she slow opens her heart to what he might be….a really good guy.
I really enjoyed seeing Eva open up to Charlie and seeing him help her overcome some of her insecurities within herself.

Review by Twinsie Angie
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I need more!! This was a great introduction to Fiona’s writing for anyone who has not read her stuff. But for crazy fans like me….we need more!!! LOL
Gabe and Kayla dated years ago but Gabe walked away due to her brothers’ pressure and fear of hurting her himself. Now Kayla is all grown up and working in his home to help him with this business. Gabe is not about to let the “one who got away” get away again. Thankfully Mother Nature helps in his plan and they are forced to confront the past before building a future!!
Fiona Archer is an Aussie author who writes contemporary romance spiced with suspense. Her books feature masterful alpha heroes teamed with sassy heroines who limit their submissive side to the bedroom.
Her favorite hobbies include watching Nathan Fillion on television, shopping for that ever-elusive perfect shade of lipstick, and drinking iced coffee.
