#WOTR19 #AttendingAuthor #SeriesStarter Embracing my Submission-Jenna Jacob



Haunted for years by dreams of a savage, amber eyed Dominant with lips so enticing my soul ached in frustration and lust. None of the Dominants at Genesis, my local BDSM club ever stirred me in such blistering ways. While I tried to fill my submissive desires vicariously through interactions at the club, I attempted to convince myself it was enough. But it wasn’t. My dream Dom made certain I hungered for more. Forced beyond what I could bear, my passion and frustration exploded. I threw in the towel, determined to stop chasing a dream and gave up completely on finding submissive surrender. But fate intervened when two gunshots split the night. Forced to confront my desires and insecurities, I was shocked to realize that my dreams may have held a deeper meaning. Were they compelling me to finally embrace my submission?

#WOTR19 #Novella #NewRelease #DoubleReview – Real (Quick & Dirty Series #4) by Kate Roth

Real (Quick & Dirty: Neighbors, #4)

She’s a serious painter. He’s a cocky photographer making too much noise in the studio next door. She thinks he’s an idiot. He can’t stand her. But when the tension between them borders on passion they both start to feel something real.

*Each book in the Quick & Dirty series is a novella. They are all stand-alone, insta-loving, panty-melting, swoon-worthy stories to satisfy your craving for something quick and dirty*

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

This is the final book in the Quick and Dirty series of novellas from Kate.  I gotta say, it was the shortest, but I think it had the most intense emotions by one of the characters.

Belle and Grey are both such passionate artists who use different canvases but who also can’t seem to stand the other.  They both do things to piss the other off and cause some pretty petty and unkind words to be shared during a gallery event.

A storm and power outage force the two to spend sometime together when they both begin to see the other for what they really are.  Belle shuts down on Grey but when she reopens, we see the hurt and pain in her past and understand her a little bit more.

This was a great final addition to the series of hawt and naughty neighbor stories.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

OH please tell me this is not the last book in this series. I have so enjoyed these quick and dirty stories. This one was just as great as the others.

Belle and Grey are both accomplished artists. Grey is a photographer and Belle a painter who both have studios in the same building. Belle and Grey rubbed each other the wrong way in the first few encounters they had. Belle thought Grey was a British Idiot and Grey didn’t think too highly of her either.

However, when the lights go out in the studio one night it is Grey to the rescue when Belle screams. With the lights out Belle and Grey have time alone together they start to realize they may have been wrong about the other when they start to open up.

It is easy to make snap judgements about someone but it is amazing when you give them a chance to show you the real person they are and you realize you may have wrong. You never know what another person has been through in their life and why they hide who they really are until you give them a chance.

This series was great. All the books in this series were filled with hot steamy insta-love that I enjoyed reading and will read again.

Review by Twinsie Dee

A storyteller from the time she could talk, USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh grew up among family legends of hauntings, psychics, and love spanning decades. Those stories didn’t always have the happiest of endings, so they inspired her to write about real life, real love, and the difficulties therein.

Ellis lives in the Chicago area with her husband, daughters, and a German Shepherd that refuses to leave her side

Review by Twinsie Dee

Cary Hart hails from the Midwest. A sassy, coffee drinking, sometimes sailor swearing, Spotify addict, lover of all things books!

When not pushing women down the stairs in the fictional world, Cary has her hands full. Soccer mom in all sense of the word to two wild and crazy, spoiled kiddos, and wife to the most supportive husband. In addition to writing full time, she enjoys binge watching Netflix, laying around in her hammock and baking up cookies for her family and friends.

Cary writes real, raw romance! In her stories the characters deal with life’s everyday struggles and unwanted drama, they talk about the ugly and they become the broken. Everyone deserves a happy ending, but sometimes before you can appreciate the light, there has to be darkness.

Growing up, if someone would have told her she would become a writer, she wouldn’t have believed them. It wasn’t until she got her hands on her first romance novel, that the passion grew. Now she couldn’t imagine her life any other way – she’s living her dream.

The single life had been treating Hazel Rivera better than she’d anticipated. With no one to report to, she did as she pleased, which included if and when she’d have a man in her bed. She felt no shame in satisfying her own needs, but when toy-play goes wrong, she earns herself a visit to the emergency room. Squirming in pain, the last thing she expected was to find a sexy nurse assigned to her room. She could lose herself in a man like him—sinful eyes, full lips, and a kindhearted attitude—but before she can catch Joshua Bradley again, she’s sent home. When life hands them a second chance, will they risk their hearts?

AJ Renee Joshua Must Read Romance

“What brings you in tonight?”

“I’m experiencing a burning sensation…” I say, still debating how to get the right words out.

“Is it in your chest?”

“No, ma’am.”

“Your head?”

I shake my head. “No.”

“Well okay. How about you give me your info, and we’ll have you checked in so you can be seen?”

I nod and give her my name. She asks me a series of questions which I answer quickly, doing my best not to squirm. I extend my arm, and she puts a band around my wrist with my information.

The burning is worsening with each passing minute. I imagine little creatures hanging out around a bonfire inside my vaginal cavity before I breathe in deeply through my nose.

“You okay, Hazel?” she asks, seeing my pain.

Shaking my head, I lean my elbows onto the counter.

“I’ll be right back, hon, and we’ll have you sorted,” she says and disappears the way she came.

Looking around the room, hoping to distract myself from the growing pain, I see the furniture looks newer. A TV is on in the corner, its volume nearly muted as infomercials play. My eyes catch sight of the clock, where I see it’s nearly one in the morning.

“Rivera?” a nurse asks from my left.

I nod.

“Follow me and we’ll get you into triage.”

We walk down a long hallway, and I hear beeping from a few machines. Rustling and murmuring comes from a room we pass, and I get a glimpse of a patient being tended to. The nurse helps me into a bed and does my vitals. Before she finishes, a man rolls in a computer and asks a variety of insurance-related questions.

Throughout this process, they ask me numerous times why I’m here. Their posture calms when I tell them my heart and head feel fine. The burning sensation causes me to suck in air, my nostrils flaring with each pass.

“Hazel Rivera?” a deep voice asks. I haven’t heard this voice yet tonight, and my eyes pop open and meet sin. His are dark pits, promising naughty things—things which wouldn’t leave me burning and wondering if my vagina will ever recover.

It was just my luck to have Mr. Sinfully Gorgeous treat me for my flaming pussy.

Fuck me.

#WOTRAttending, #Review, #ComingSoon, #BDSM. Sabrina’s Seduction (Love Strictly Tested Book 2) by Anna Hague

Desperate to understand my best friend’s choice to be a submissive to her Dom husband, I decide to study BDSM for my Master’s thesis in Sociology. The very thought of giving up control terrifies me…until my research takes me to a “play party” and I witness Cameron Terry spanking a sub. The striking Dominant’s unassuming power mesmerizes me, exciting me in ways I’ve never known possible while my sheltered and strict upbringing tells me this new desire is immoral. But when at last I plead for what I crave, I struggle on the edge of fear and bliss. Can I change who I’ve always believed myself to be?

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

Welcome to book 2 of Anna Hague’s Love Strictly Tested series.  The book picks up right were the first left off except this time the story is about Emma aka “Angel’s” bff Sabrina.

Sabrina decides to do her Master Thesis on BDSM to better understand her bff and to make up to her and her husband about misjudging the lifestyle so quickly.

Poor Sabrina.  I don’t think I have ever seen someone so repressed as her.  She is a 30 year old woman that is basically scared of her own shadow and everything makes the woman throw up.  However as she learns about the lifestyle she is introduced to Cameron Terry.  We’ve met Cameron before in Angel’s book, he is Jordan Angel’s husband nemesis.

As I was saying, as she learns about the lifestyle she also learns about herself.  

Hague, has done a amazing job taking a repressed woman and making her blossom into someone almost completely different fans she has done that with the help of a well written male character in Cameron.  He helps Sabrina find that woman that she has hidden deep within herself.

Also, as we read about Sabrina and Cameron, we also see glimpses of Angel and Jordan and how they find out the story that she told the reporter in book 1, will come back to bite them in the butt.

After the ending that I just read i cant wait to see what happens in book 3.

#WOTR19 #AttendingAuthor #Standalone Whisper Forever -C.A. Harms



I wanted to forget him so many times. Erase the memories we shared and pretend he didn’t exist. It would have made his absence easier to accept.

Lucas Rivers broke my heart more than once.

In my world he was my guy, the one I’d grow old with and laugh with. But things aren’t that simple, and time changes everything.

That naive girl with dreams of happily-ever-afters was gone. 

I didn’t need a man to complete me. I was enough—no, I was more than enough. I was strong and determined. I was Madelyn Emery, and never again would a boy break my heart.

But the moment Lucas returned after four years, acting like we could pick up where we left off, that strength inside me shifted. The more I tried to ignore his efforts, the harder he fought.

How can one simple word whispered by one man mean so very much?

“Forever.”

Review by Twinsie Dee

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast

Review by Twinsie Dee

When Emily isn’t nose deep in her latest and greatest writing adventure or in over her head with her spitfire daughter, newest addition, and her main squeeze; you’ll find her emerged in the latest book to catch her eye. She doesn’t judge, she reads it all and hungers for more. She has been declared a Pinterest queen by some, and is one of the few people you’ll ever meet to actually pull off those easy looking recipes; the ones that the rest of us burn.

Wyatt

By: Miranda Lynn

5 stars

Wyatt is a dragon shifter and is freaking amazing!!!! He seems very quiet and reserved but he has quite the past. After the craziness of the previous book he is taking some much needed time off that he never allowed himself in the past. He is going to hang out with Black Mountain Pack. He believes he is the last of his lineage but then again….maybe not. The story of the dragon shifters and their mates is pure gold but heartbreaking nonetheless. As Wyatt goes in search of what is tugging at his heartstrings he finds someone that may be able to save the dragon shifter race. Natalie lives in a town that is full of shifters. This town is a place of peace for them and the humans that are aware of their existence. She has been given a reading of her future and she is not sure if she should take it to heart or not. In the midst of these two and their feelings, the resistance has reared its ugly head. Wyatt is alone and has to seek help from Leo and the Black Mountain Pack to cut the head off the snake all the while trying to help keep his soon to be mate safe. Wyatt’s and Natalie’s story is a slow burn that is thrilling and full of mystery. An absolute page turner. The history of the Dragon shifters in this book is one of my favorite ever. It’s very intricate and super interesting. A must read! Loving me some Wyatt!!!!

Miranda Lynn

Escaping reality one book at a time has been Miranda’s motto since she learned to read. As an only child raised on a dairy farm her creative imagination brought words to life. She devoured more books growing up than her little town bookmobile could handle. It was inevitable that she would turn from reading them to writing them. This is her way to help not only herself but others escape the day to day drudge. Her books may take you on a journey through time, give you a look inside a fantasy realm, or delve into the magic of almost anything paranormal. Threading in heart stopping romance and dropping an occasional super sexy scene just to keep you on your toes.
Miranda’s stories are focused around strong female leads and sexy males who appreciate them. She strives to encourage her readers that they can have it all in real life too.
You can find her most days either subbing at the local high school or tucked away in her office working on the next story with a cup of java in her hand. She loves connecting with her readers online as well as in real life so make sure to find her on Facebook and check out where she will be signing throughout the year on her website.
