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

Do you wanna read some hot stories with the money going to a great charity ?  If so, buckle up baby because it going a be a bumpy ride, they are Alphas after all.

Now, these are all pretty short novellas, but they do pack a punch.  While some of these author are some of my favorites, some were brand spanking new to me and maybe they have a new fan.

Theardbare by Victoria Blue

Who doesn’t loves second chance romances; I mean come on you get reunited with your one true love, it’s awesome.

Jane is back at her childhood home for her father’s funeral.  Her parents were her foster parents and decided to adopt her.  Her mother was controlling and overbearing and she marred her perfect husband just to get away from her and because he was just the type of man her mother approved of.

Daniel was a boy that her parents fostered, they fell in love and her parents ruined that and made him leave.

This was a lovely second chance story. I wanted to smack Jane upside her head and say “Get with the program!”  Luckily she has some awesome friends in her corner.

Always and Forever by M. Clarke

Maxwell Knight has taken over the CEO position at his father’s company Knight Fashion.  Crystal is a new hire in customer relations at the company.  On Max’s first day they literally run into each other in the hall.

Let me just say where this story started was NOT where I thought it was going to end. I love when you think you.  Know what’s going to happen and the author totally flips the script on you. 

Little Tease by Avery Flynn

Cyn had been in love with her brother’s best friend for years and she’s only been going through the motions in her relationships because she knew she was never gonna get him.  Hunter was everything she wasn’t, smart, successful, and uptight.  

Cyn is by no means dumb, she just lives down to everyone’s expectations of her.  Hunter knows that Cyn is off limits, not only is she is best friend’s little sister the girl is a hot mess.

One midnight boat ride and a storm changes everything for the pair.  

I always love little sister/brother’s bff romances, they are so much fun!! The danger of what will happen when the brother finds out, how long can feelings be fought???!!!! Sometimes hot messes are the best kind of messes and being uptight is nearly as bad as you think.

Lost Seduction by Anissa Garcia

What’s a woman to do when her boyfriend leaves her because she hasn’t given up her V-card yet?  Why hire someone to take it and be drunk when said person arrives!!! Lol

Emerie is helping is friend Lily at a HR retreat and the man she invited into her hotel room to get her card punch, that she thought she hired, she finds out is her bestie’s boss and not  a hired professional.

Sebastian is taken with Emerie and has been since he saw a picture of her in Lily’s office.  This was such a funny a cute little story.  Emerie and Sebastian, after all the funny and v-card nonsense are very much two people who belong together.

Seducing Sophia by Jenna Jacob

Ok, this was one story I was sooooo looking forward to just because Jacob is one of my favorite Authors and has one of my alt time favorite series so reading her was like welcoming a old friend.

In this novella Jacob introduces to a whole new group of characters by way of a pit stop at my favorite place Club Genesis.

Licks of Leather is a chart topping rock group and Sophia is their assistant on this tour.  Burk Jennings is the lead singer of the man and a total man whore. Sophia knows if he ever turned his powers of Seduction on her she would have a heck of a time turning him down, but she’s not a blonde or skinny so she’s not his type.

Man oh man!!!!!!! New friends, old friends, people trying to keep their true desires hidden Jacob brings it all in this little novella. Oh, OH, OH, and she’s introduced us to her new series!!!!!!  It’s a tasty little amuse bouche and I can’t wait for a full meal of these rockers.

Just a Little Mischief by Isabella LaPearl

Brian is a hard man, a professional soldier that has returned to a home that never really cared about him because he was the second son. He’s a man so hard he doesn’t do softness or relationships that he doesn’t pay for.  

Georgia is the oldest of triplets, she’s the responsible one, the less adventurous of the three.

I really hope that we get more of Georgia and Brian down the road!!  Talk about your cliff hangers, man meets girl in a bar, girl gives him someone else’s name, she sneaks out on him after a night of hotness including giving up her V-card, then sneaks out on him while he’’s asleep!!!!

This was awesome!!!!

Picked Up by Mickey Miller

Dagny is having a rough week( it’s only Tuesday) and decides she need a drink so she heads to a bar since she doesn’t have to race home to her daughter.

While she’s there she meets Sam, a handsome man in a suit that looks like he’d be trouble.  They start talking and telling each other about their ex’s.

Everyone needs a little human kindness and if that kindness comes in a hot suited up package even better.  They decide to spend one night together since he will be going back home tomorrow and she has to get back to her daughter.  

Another tricky ending story!!! I loved it!! I definitely will be picking more up from this author.

The Secret Note by Lauren Rowe

Let’s face it crossing a Hemsworth off my to be done list is never gonna happen  however, I can live vicariously through our next heroine Kaylee.

Kaylee is out camping with her college age brother and his school friends, one who is a student from Australia, giving him a secret note she invites Ben into her tent for the night.

Kaylee is the Alpha in this story, not only is she secretly inviting a dude into her tent; he’s Australian, younger that her, and a virgin!!!  

Poor boy gets his mind BLOWN!!!!

7 Yrs later Kaylee gets her mind blown when Ben calls her up and wants to see her!!!

OMG!! This story could totally be a movie and if Chris Hemsworth was in it I’d pay to go see it!!  

Hard As Stone by K.M. Scott

Ethan Stone is the only son of worldwide hotel owner Tristen Stone and artist Nina Stone.  Although he doesn’t work for his father’s company he is expected to fall in line and find a “normal” girl to settle down with instead of bed hopping with the models he photographs.

Summer works for Belle Magazine and is “normal” in every since of the word.  When Ethan meets Summer on a photo shoot he knows he’s found the girl to get his family off his back for a while.

Why is it that men who think they can use a girl to trick his family never realize that it always backfires on them and they end up falling for said girl.  Men really can be silly when it comes to matters of the heart.

Red and White by Sierra Simone

OMG!!!  This one is hot from the get go!!!  Two lovely ladies, Scarlett and Snow, get away for Winter Break.  They two have been slowly coming together through out the semester and now is time for something to happen.

When a big bear looking man comes booming and passing out on them in their cabin, in the middle of a snow storm what can the girls do but help him out.

Liam is the bearded brooding man of every girl’s dream and when he wake up to find himself in a cabin with not one, but two visions of loveliness he can’t believe he’s not dreaming.

Talk about your hot stories, this one might very well be the hottest of the Anthology.  I mean you can’t help but be hot with a threesome!! Think I found another new author, lol!!!

#WOTR18 #PreOrder – Once Upon a Twisted Time

Savannah Verte, Christine Alvarez,  and Jolanthe Aleksander

Releasing May 8, 2018

Once Upon A Twisted Time #OUATT
Drawing from a well of myth and legend, each of these 15 USA
Today and NYT Best Selling Authors, has put their own twist on a story from childhood.

Beast Underneath by Julie Morgan

An impossible spell. An unwanted lover. A dark tale in the making. Nightmares can frighten even the bravest of men, but when dreams become reality, Bella will not know whether she is asleep… or awake. When a mysterious man ventures to Paris, havoc will shake Bella to her core. All malicious activities point to her, but she has no memory of it. Her only ally is her husband, Adrian. As the spell is moments from fruition, Adrian offers to take her place. Meddling with magic, after all, always comes with a price.

 

Love Is For The Birds by Angelica Dawson

Odette’s story has been made famous by Tchaikovsky, but what if there were more to the story? What if Odette got a second chance at happiness? What if she had a friend to share all her trials and tribulations?

Anna and Vlad each stand in the shadow of their friends, but together they have a fairy tale all their own.

 

Mine Before Midnight By: Amy L Gale

Ember Gray dreams of escaping the only world she’s ever known, the Chrome Crusaders Motorcycle Club, until tragedy strikes and she’s trapped with her malicious stepmother and two stepsisters. Confined to the house every night by midnight, Ember is subjected to their constant abuse with no way out.

Cruz Jackson takes what he wants when he wants it. As president of the Nevada chapter of the Chrome Crusaders, he lives for the moment total freedom, no rules, and no regrets.

Sparks fly at an MC wedding when best man Cruz is paired with Ember, the maid of honor. Enticed by her sharp tongue and perfect body he can’t resist anything about her but before he can seal the deal, Ember takes off without warning leaving behind a studded black stiletto. Armed with one of her shoes, Cruz sets off to find the woman who captivates his soul but gets more than he bargained for when he’s thrown into chaos, conspiracy, and murder.

Will he toss his club loyalties to the wind to save Ember or does it all end at midnight?

 

Mended by Emily Cyr

Marin has spent her life inexplicably feeling like a part of her very being was tattered. As a result, she has dedicated her life to restoring antique art and has become the best in her field.

However, a life of repairing broken paintings isn’t enough to fill the void within, and Marin finds herself on her first vacation ever. This was meant to be the trip where she could finally mend the part of herself that’s missing.

Hours after repairing an ancient tapestry at a quaint bed and breakfast, she grows incomprehensibly tired, and wakes up to realize she’s not in her room, with no memory of when or how she left. The strange night isn’t what worries Marin most, though – it’s the fact that she’s woken up as something far from human and has suddenly had her eyes opened to a world she couldn’t see before, one filled with witches, bear-shifters, and hunters.

Now, Marin must choose which life she wants. She can embrace her new self and finally feel whole, but will always be hunted by someone hell-bent on revenge. Or she can go back to the comfortable life she once knew, and be the downfall of an entire race. Only Marin can make the choice, before it’s too late.

 

Keys to Her Heart by Lori King

The Prince…

Evan Blake has never wanted for anything. He’s never been hungry or made do with hand-me-downs. Born into generations of determined, successful businessmen, he’s charged with keeping his family’s legacy intact and building on it. It isn’t until his high-school crush returns to town, that he realizes he needs more…

The Pauper…

Walker Ash has scraped for everything he owns. Every day is a test of his ability to charm his way through life, because it’s the only thing he’s never had a shortage of. She was his teenage wet dream, and now she’s his adult craving…

The Challenge…

Best friends since elementary school, Walker and Evan have always been at odds over their different lifestyles, but one drunk bet will have them swapping lives for a day. The challenge has been accepted, and the prize is one worth winning. Which man will walk away with the keys to her heart?

 

Severed Hearts by Elizabeth Raven

Come. Sit down, and join me for a story. Please, forgive me if it seems a bit gory. This ghastly tale is thanks to the Brother’s Grimm. Hold on to your organs, life, and limbs! Fret not, Dear Reader. The bloody beginning does not persist, and the rest of the tale you simply can’t resist. Settle in, and cast all doubt aside, as we embark on one hell of a ride! No time for squeamishness or personal aversions, lest you risk never knowing the fate of Lily and the Three Army Surgeons.

 

Snow by Erzabet Bishop

Fairytales can bite…

To look to the future, sometimes you have to unearth the secrets of the past.

Snow longs to find a true love of her own, but when her father returns from war with a new bride, her carefully planned out life slips through her fingers. Her new stepmother, the Queen, harbors a dangerous secret. One malicious kiss sends Snow tumbling into a sinister landscape of dark desires and a new manifestation that can save her or destroy everything she’s ever held dear.

Darkness can hide the most sultry of nights.

Gideon and his men guard the king, but even they can’t protect him from his murderous new bride. When the castle falls prey to the Queen’s ire, they find themselves under the spell of the moon. Can they harness their new reality to protect the newest target of the Queen’s wrath, or will they once again be victims of her unholy power play?

 

The Huntress & The Frog by Louisa Bacio

One more job and Melody plans to retire her fighting knives. Her final mission is to protect an elitist prince until he finds his mate. But there’s more to his royal highness than meets the eye.

Victor needs to marry a princess in order to break the curse of the voodoo king of New Orleans. Instead, he gets a huntress.

In a wicked case of opposites attract, the adult version of this classic tale proves the power of pleasure.

 

Breathe Me to Life by Jolanthe Aleksander

Ailsa was biding her time when the call of the music floating on the wings of the night’s wind led her to a moonlit glen and another world.

Kellan, Prince of the Fae Court, was tired and bored with things as they were until a young woman not only sparked his interest but his desire to finally claim a mate.

Two souls find in each other a connection unlike any other.

A chance encounter brought them together. A dream created a bond. Will the jealousy of one who was scorned tear them apart? Or will love’s kiss breathe life into a sleeping beauty?

 

Red by Tara Vasser

In the aftermath of a tragic car accident, Red is resurrected by a Vampire. As repayment for her second life, she spends a decade being groomed to serve as a peace offering between enemies.

Upon arrival at the estate of her betrothed, Red soon realizes the cruelty of her husband-to-be and the sterility of his manse are more than she can bear. Seeking refuge, she flees to the woods where nothing is as it seems. There, she is drawn to a dangerous figure shrouded in secrecy. It is within the trees where Red will discover who is predator and who is prey.

 

Jess Haines

Time can change anyone’s story. Even mine.

Once upon a time, there was a forest with an enchanted lake whose waters brimmed with secrets…

There are many versions of my story. You may have heard that an evil wizard transformed a princess into a swan. Or perhaps the tale of a witch who turned a beautiful queen into a white duck to take her royal place at the side of the king. Or that a prince stole a woman’s veil to prevent her from transforming into a bird and flying away from him.

A little truth may be sprinkled in all these tales. I cannot speak for them all.

But this one is mine.

 

Twelve by Savannah Verte

Lyford Rousseau needs a son. He has thirty years to fulfill an agreement or lose his kingdom forever. Multiple wives and a dozen children later, he learns the price of deception, and of apathy. Will it cost him everything?

This version of the Twelve Dancing Princesses twists what you thought you knew from your childhood fairy tales and shows what the good king was really worried about. It wasn’t dance slippers. There’s more dirty than a dance in this twisted tale.

 

Alice Goes to Hell by: Christine Alvarez

When Alice learns that a recent murder of a stripper has an uncanny resemblance to a cold case dubbed The Wonderland Murders, she doesn’t hesitate before jumping down the rabbit hole of a mad man’s story.
Desperate to solve her mother’s murder and finally bring down the man who turned her favorite childhood fairytale into a horror story, she works to interpret the clues he’s left just for her.
But even with the help of her fiancé Tony, Alice always seems to be running late, until the mad man himself invites her to a tea party of his own making.

 

Jak the Giant Healer by Rebekah R. Ganiere

Sometimes it takes being kidnapped to figure out who you were meant to be.

Jak has spent her life as her father’s live in babysitter. But when he loses her in a card game to the man she’s refused for the last year, Jak refuses to take it lying down. Things only seem to go downhill when Jak when she’s kidnapped by the Jätte and taken to their kingdom in the sky.

Stefan is the heir to the crown of Luften. His only desire has been to heal his father and save his kingdom. But when the fiery Jak arrives from the ground kingdom of Fairelle, everything Stefan thinks he wants shifts with one look at her.

Jak needs nothing more than to find her place in the world, Stefan only needs to save his kingdom. Together they might just find a life worth living.

My review of these 10 awesome authors

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I need to get my motor running.
Literally.
All I want is to learn how to build engines,
Cars, motorcycles–anything.
You name it; I want to feel it rev in my hands.
Fabricate it into something mine,
Bend it to my will,
Create what hasn’t been built before.

But nobody takes me seriously,
And I’m no damsel in distress.
I can and will get my hands dirty,
Very dirty.

And now, I have that chance,
Working with Jesse Valentine,
Top motorcycle and hot rod fabricator.
But he’s got a reputation for more,
Much more.

After all, he’s nothing but a cocky,
Overinflated jerk,
And I’m just interested in mechanics,
Cold, hard, machines.
I was born to bend, build, create,
And I won’t change for anyone,
Not even him.

 

My 5 star Review

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.

Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.

 

My 5 star review

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They say first impressions mean everything. Either Maximus “Max” Gunn didn’t get the memo or he didn’t care. The gorgeous, muscle-bound Dominant’s assumption that I, Mistress Sammie, was a submissive set my blood boiling. I wanted to drive the toe of my coveted Louis Vuitton stilettos between his legs—and bring him to his knees.

But anger wasn’t the only burning emotion Max ignited inside me. The potent sexual attraction we share threatened to burn me alive, too. Unwilling to cede our Dominance, the battle for control raged like a third world war, both in and out of the dungeon. It would take a coup d’état for love to conquer our drive to command.

But when Max learns the secrets of my past, and attempts to heal my scars, I don’t know if I’ll be able to still the battle…or fall willingly to my knees.

 

My review of this WOTR Author

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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.

 

My review of this WOTR Author

***TRIGGER WARNING: This is a MAFIA romance. In addition to several scenes with strong sexual content, there are also scenes involving violence, death, gun play, mention of sexual abuse, and adult language. Due to the nature of this book, it is intended for 18+ audiences only***

My name is Dash.

The Vitaliev Bratva had always been a part of my life, but I was never a part of it. My father built it from the ground up, and while he never hid what the family business was, he never wanted my life to be tainted by it.

But my father forgot one thing.

I’m also a Vitaliev.

Everything I hold dear has been targeted since my father’s death—my business, my friends, and the peaceful world I’ve built for myself. But it wasn’t until the love of my life, Polo Scorpeone, was struck down by a sniper’s bullet that I realized being a Vitaliev isn’t a curse. It’s a strength.

I will face my hidden enemy with the Vitaliev fire of old, and I’ll do it with the most powerful lethal weapon Chicago’s underworld has ever known by my side.

Come to find out, the legendary Scorpio is hard to kill.

The riotously funny debut from the drinking star with a YouTube problem.

Since launching her YouTube channel “You Deserve a Drink” in 2011, comedian Mamrie Hart has built an intensely devoted following of more than half a million viewers. Like her bawdy and bacchanalian show, Hart’s eponymous debut pays tribute to her boozy misadventures with an original cocktail recipe accompanying each hilarious tale. From the “Leaves of Three Martini,” commemorating the hookup to whom she accidentally gave poison ivy, to the “Bizzargarita,” in honor of the time she and a friend were approached by two uber-Republican couples who wanted to “swing” while on vacation in Mexico, You Deserve a Drink is as useful as it is entertaining.

The Montgomery Ink series by NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues when the final Denver Montgomery sibling refuses to fall for his brother’s former flame—the company’s new plumber.

Wes Montgomery watched his entire family fall in love, and now finds himself ready to settle down. Except the one person he seems to find chemistry with is not only his twin’s ex, she also works for Montgomery Inc. But when the two find themselves in one compromising situation after another, Wes realizes he’s having second thoughts about the dynamic woman who’s burst her way into his life. Sure she sets off his temper, but she also makes him hot in every other way possible.

Jillian Reid never loved her best friend like everyone thought she should, so she pushed him away so he could have his future. Now, despite fighting it, she finds herself attracted to the one man she shouldn’t. When her father’s health takes a turn for the worse, and a danger no one saw coming show its face, she’s forced to turn to Wes for help. The two of them have fought off their attraction long enough, and each cave to the desire. But this enemies-to-lovers tale might have an ending no one ever dreamed of.

TRIGGER WARNING: This book contains flashbacks of violence and drug abuse, and the impact of these factors on family members. If you have issues with these elements, this book is not for you.

Chicago’s premiere tattoo studio, House Of Payne, is across the street from the Mad Cow diner, but it might as well be on another planet as far as waitress Paradise Simone is concerned. She’s a good girl from Waukegan with a past she’d rather forget, and a future that goes only as far as the next day. What does she know about superstars and paparazzi?

But Pari does know danger when she sees it, and tattooist Max Kulagin has it written all over him. A proper Waukegan girl should know to steer well clear, but she can’t resist Max when he leaves beautiful, intimate art sketched out on cheap diner napkins.

Beautiful, intimate art…of her.

Max knows ugliness. He was born in it. Raised in it. Had it shoved down his throat every goddamn day. So when he stumbles across true beauty, he worships it. There’s a deep sensuality in the waitress who likes to suck on her pen whenever he’s around, and he’s just the man to bring that beauty out in her. She might be a lady in the street, but one look at Pari tells him she’s going to be a freak in the bed.

And in the shower.

And while he’s driving with her head going to town in his lap.

The life Max leads might be in the spotlight, but it’s Pari who gets caught in the glare. When her past catches up to her, it’s her life that holds all the excitement, and not in a good way. But there’s no force on earth that can take Max’s beautiful Paradise away now that he’s finally found it.

Devoted to Wicked by Shayla Black
Shayla Black has given us a returning glimpse into her Wicked Loves world with Karis and Cage, making me one happy lady!!
Stuck in Mexico after her passport is stolen Karis just wants to get a new one and go home. Cage is sent to help her, he also plans to find out why she has been ignoring him since their time together at New Years.
Both of them felt something they’ve never felt before and all it took was not communicating to almost screw up a future together. Karis has been walled up tighter then Fort Knox after thinking she saw Cage with another woman, but when they actually talk about it she finds out that he was actually being there for a friend.
I love how fast these two figure out they belong together after they talk about New Years!! I also love how Cage is a yummy knight in shining armor saving her from a stalker she picked up in Mexico.

Countdown by Lexi Blake
Omg, omg!!!!!!! I’m dead, totally dead!!! Now that I’ve said that, let me tell you about Ben and the girl he calls Maggie.

At times they’ve worked together and at times Maggie has been against him, but now they are working together again to stop a mad man that has developed a new anthrax formula.
Ben has always been attracted to Maggie but he’s never done anything about it, until now. Maggie has been waiting for Ben to let her know how he feels no now this is their last chance. When breaching the mad man’s compound triggers a bomb that only gives them a hour to live, they decided to spend that hour wisely. How you may ask, why by doing what they should have been doing since they met!!! The explosion at the end is something that you do not wanna miss!!!

Carter has moved on from that night sure, but he’s never forgotten her and now that she’s back he’s never letting her go.
Wow, talk about your Alpha’s!! When two dominant personalities get together it’s explosive. Carr gives us a great story with these two getting a second chance at their HEA, but first they have to say deal with Bree’s murdering ex-step father who has escaped from prison and is now after her.

 

CIA Covert Team by Kris Cook
What’s hotter than a MM couple? Why a CIA MM couple of course!!! Drake and Chance were a couple but broke up when Chance wanted a family with a white picket fence. It wasn’t that Drake didn’t love him it was just that with them being on the same special ops team he wasn’t willing to chance that their bosses wouldn’t approve.
It’s amazing how things are put into perspective when you almost lose the one you love. I haven’t read anything my Kris Cook before, but reading Drake and Chance makes me want to read more from this author. It was a quick story full of intrigue, love, and secret agents that made me look more into this series.

With a Vengeance by Anissa Garcia
Another newbie author for me. Oh, how I love finding new authors!!!
Olivia is dealing with the heartbreaking loss of her best friend six months ago. It was ruled a suicide, but she knows that she was murdered by her ex-lover who is a high powered Senator and now she has taken a job as his secretary to try and get the proof she needs.

Evan and Raine have been circling each other for a while, but no matter how attracted to her he is Evan doesn’t date employees. Raine knows Evan is a player, she also knows that if she ever had a night with him she would want more than he could give her.
The ending of this story killed me!!!! It’s safe to say I will be stalking Kim Grosso so that I can find out more about Evan and Raine!!!!

Holy Heck!!!! Former marine, now motorcycle man Rambler is one hot as heck Alpha!!!!! Ella is a woman on the run from her past. When they met she thinks she’s safe, but it turns out is isn’t she she runs once again to keep Rambler safe.
Can I just saw a love a man on a motorcycle and one that is former military just makes him even yummier!!! Ella should have figured that a man like Rambler doesn’t need anyone to keep him safe, he’s the one that makes it safe for the people he loves.
Isabella LaPearl has checked all my “YES!” boxes with this one; yummy military motorcycle man, Russian Mobsters, steamy bedroom scene, and a check trying to do the right thing.

Executive Ink (A Montgomery Ink Short Story) by Carrie Ann Ryan
First off let me give a little squeal because the Montgomery Ink Series is one of my favorite from Carrie Ann Ryan.
Talk about fate!!!! Ashlynn is in Atlanta for a conference, as she is walking back to her hotel Jax saves her from a car running a red light. Jax is also in Atlanta finishing up a tattoo at his old job before returning to his new job at Montgomery Ink in Denver.
Oh, boy!!! What is suppose to be a thank you for saving me drink turns into a one night hook up. Neither can stop thinking about the other but since they never got last names or hometowns what else can they do.
Then fate, that sneaky lady, intervenes. They actually live in the same city!!! How do they find out you ask?? Because Jax goes to meet his little sister at her work for lunch and who should be there, ASHLYNN!!!!!
Man oh man, do I love how Ryan writes a bearded, brooding, inked up man!!! She makes Ashlynn and Jax getting together seem effortless. Opposites definitely attract with these two a high powered CFO and a tattoo artist.

Wedding planner Arianna King had everything planned out down to the last detail until her father’s ultimatum changed everything. Being in love with your best friend isn’t always easy as Harper Rosso knows.

Sparks fly between the two of them once they finally take their relationship to the next level. Only the burning temptation than fills them might not be enough in the face of what they left behind and what threatens their future.

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

This lovely little Montgomery Ink nugget is in the Valentine’s Day anthology Once Upon a Valentine.
Arianna King is the granddaughter of a woman who started a wedding planning business which turned into a company ran by her father called King’s Weddings.
She has been the woman behind the man for so long and now that her father is stepping down she can run the business her way, her father however does not have the same plan. The business is to be sold to their rivals Honor Designs and she is gone or Ari can marry douche canoe Justin Rosso and become president and owner of the company. She’s always known her father didn’t love her, but she never in a million years expected this, to make her choose between the company or herself!! She does the only things she sees she can do and quits!!!
Harper Rosso is the douche canoe’s brother but he is nothing like him and is Ari’s best friend and neighbor. He also works for Storm and Wes at Montgomery Inc. I have come to the conclusion that is a prerequisite that any man that is any way associated with Montgomery Ink or Montgomery Inc must be H.O.T. They grow them yummy in Denver!!!!
Ari and Harper have been best friends since they were young and Harper has been in love with her for a very long time, he’s just never told her how he feels. He has always done what is best for her, helped her when she needs it, and this time is no different.
He gets her to believe in herself and her dream of small and intimate weddings, believe so strong that she starts her own business Just for Them.
Along the way of starting her business and planning her first weddings, she starts to realize that her feelings for Harper aren’t just a best friends feelings but those of a woman and a man, something that he gladly helps her with.
It’s always great when best friends fall in love. To me it’s a strong bond only made stronger with that love. Harper and Ari seem made for each other and that is the way it should be. I love this series and I can’t wait for more.
If all of the stories in this anthology are this good then it will be awesome!!!
