#wotr #attendingauthor #newrelease Just a Kiss (Lyrics and Love 4) by Samantha Lind

HTML:

 Release Date: January 6

It all started with just a kiss.

The first was ten years ago in high school.

Our second was in a bar on the dance floor.

We agreed to keep things casual.

But we were like a fire burning behind closed doors.

Those sparks had me wanting more.

When I took a shot in the dark and asked for more, it brought us to the ultimate crossroads.

Do we do things right, with just a kiss goodbye?

Or do we do things right, with a kiss goodnight?

Ahh im so glad Lee and Allison’s story was continued i loved their connection in rumors goin round. Allison and Lee went to high school together and always had that crush on each other but never took it anywhere. One-night at the local bar they decided why not and give into their feelings but Lee was a one night stand kinda guy didnt want to catch feelings and Allison was just fine with that until she starts actually catching feelings in their friends with benefits situation. Will she be able to keep her feelings to herself without her heart getting hurt or is this bachelor one that never gets off the market.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Rumor Going ‘Round (Lyrics and Love 3) by Samantha Lind

When rumors start circling,

Do you walk the other way?

Or give them something to talk about?

She was the one I always secretly wanted

But it was never meant to be,

I landed myself in the friend zone.

He was my high-school crush,

Who grew up into the single sexy dad,

Putting his life on the line with every fire he fought.

One spin around the dance floor has our friends talking,

Wondering if we could get any closer.

We blew the rumors off until one day, we really gave them something to talk about.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Tucker was a single dad who was a local firefighter. His daughter’s mom and him had a great co parenting relationship. He was all for wanting a relationship but wasn’t sure when it would happen so he just focused on his daughter and job.  Lindsay was a busy ER nurse and was basically the one who got away in Tuckers eyes even though they never really had a thing but they knew each other their whole life and always had that crush.  When all of their friend are out at the local bar and Tucker takes Lindsay out on the dance floor and is holding her real close. That how those rumors started to go around but they weren’t going to let that stop them they were gonna give them something to talk about. But will there busy life’s get in the way of their happiness and will Tucker’s daughter like having to share her daddy with someone else. This was such a cute story i loved Tucker and his daughter Paisley is the best. I love when books have kids in them just adds that extra cuteness to them.

#wotr #attendingauthor #shifters Lightweight (Hallow Brothers 7) by Tricia Andersen

Is this the end of the Hallow family?

The Hallows have been exiled from their home and the cell towers that sustained their income are burned to the ground. Their only hope rests on Caleb and Joshua who fly to Tokyo to plead for their contracts with LunaBit, the app company they work for. The night before their big meeting, Joshua is drawn to a blonde at a bar. After a night of amazing, sensual sex, he wakes up alone, bearing the mating mark of his ancestors, similar to the ones his six brothers already share with their mates.

When the brothers finally meet with Maya Johansson, LunaBit’s Vice President of the North American Division, Joshua discovers she is the woman who was his bed the night before. Maya holds secrets of her own, which includes being aware of what the tattoo she now bears means. She demands that Joshua returns to Los Angeles to negotiate the family’s contracts with LunaBit. Joshua agrees, willing to do anything to protect his loved ones in Minnesota. However, can he withstand a fabricated marriage, tension with an ex-boyfriend, and a new father-in-law that is pure evil incarnate? And can he save the Hallows home before they all fall to the vampires who want them dead?

Wow wow wow this book you might want to have a fan on when you are reading this one. Josh is the last single brother bound and determined that he don’t care if he finds his mate or not after dealing with all his brothers finding their mates. Well with the fate of the family business in the hands of their boss, Caleb and Josh find themselves in Japan for a huge meeting to try to save their jobs while fighting to save their homes and family from vampires who want them dead. At eh bar josh started feeling this odd urge he’s never felt before then walks in a beautiful woman no he’s at a lost for words he just knows he wants her naked in his bed, and that’s what happens. Little does he know that his new mate is the boss he’s about to have a meeting with to save the family’s contract and job. Maya does one thing work and don’t like to deal with feelings after her ex used her to try and get her VP job she has a hard time trusting men, while hiding a secret of her own. But when she spots Josh and wakes up with the mating tattoo she already knows what he is and what it means but she’s not willing to let it affect her job and what she needs to do. Will their new found relationship get in the way of business, and the vampires get what they want. Or in true Hallow fashion will the brothers over come everything against them with their mates at their side to take what is theirs. This book is hawt, hawt, hawt, and full of mystery  that will not disappoint at all.

https://amzn.to/3wvVrBI

She’s everything I shouldn’t want, but exactly what I crave.

She bleeds innocence the way I radiate darkness. The moment she walked into my club, she was mine. She just didn’t know it. I’ll be the one to ruin her, and she will love every second.

Innocence lost can’t be regained.

My life seems rather simple from the outside. I’m the devoted daughter to a former rodeo champion. I never wanted to follow my mother’s footsteps into the arena. My boots are firmly planted in the dirt on our family farm, but an accident changed everything.Now I spend my nights on a stage, and my days in the barn. Dancing has paid the bills for the past two years, but no one knows my secret. Or so I thought.

Amusement is the darkly sweet duel POV stalker romance you didn’t know you needed

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Oh my i can’t even put into word how amazing this book was. So Lucy is the sole provider for her family after her mom was in a car accident and couldn’t work so at 18 he did what she had to do she just didn’t know it would be working at a strip club, but the rule was they could look but couldn’t not touch her. She was doing whatever she could to make sure she could pay the bills to keep her family ranch. One day at the store she ran into Rafe and he was determined to get to know her to get her to be his. Little did Lucy know that he already knew way more about her then she knew and he was stalking her to make sure no one else would have her. Will Rafe get what he want without her finding out who he truly is or will Lucy run in the other direction. This story was wow it kept me in on my toes with each page, I’m so glad I choose to get this book it definitely wont be the last time I read Albany’s books

Creeping It Real (Magical Bureau of Investigation 2) by Albany Walker 

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/58825480-creeping-it-real

https://amzn.to/3mNeP9A

Do dead men tell tales?

Before the ink is dry on my last case, I get pulled onto another, and away from what could be a new beginning with the guys.

The murder of a high-profile coven leader is being kept a secret, only his inner circle knows. Problem is, they just may be the reason he ended up with a femur through his heart. Add some necromancy into the mix and things are getting down right intriguing dangerous.

On top of the case, there’s also my very tricky love life that has a little too much in common with the dead man for my liking. I just hope our story doesn’t end with a bloody, broken heart like his did.

Bones are piling up, just like suspects. We need to solve this case before the death magic can target anyone else.

Creeping it Real is the second book in the Magical Bureau of Investigation series. This is a slow burn RH or whychoose novel with adult situations.

I was given this book by the author for an honest review

Wow one again Albany hits it outta the park. Frankie was sent on a case to figure out who killed a huge coven leader and then while she was there another similar scene in a cemetery and it just goes crazy from there. Once arriving at the hotel she calls her guys to let them know where she was, and that she didn’t know when she was going to be home due to the case. When they show up at the hotel Frankie can’t believe it but also she loves that they came to her. Percy once again is the best sidekick and the star of the book lol. But with the guys there and this case getting more and more crazy will Frankie be able to focus on what she needs to and get them all back home. Which when they get home and it don’t low down more drama is waiting for them right around the corner. This book is amazing I’m so ready for the third book Albany does an amazing job and I’m obsessed with her books.

#wotr #attendingauthor #novella With You by J.M. Walker

Our world changed five years ago, and it left behind this gaping hole in our relationship.

We were now trying to figure out a way to move past a tragedy without losing ourselves in the process.

Married, with a son, we needed to communicate but neither of us wanted to talk about our loss. Instead, we focused on our little boy.

Finally, after having had enough, we took a trip, learned new things about each other, and fell into an even deeper kind of love.

We revealed new truths about one another and because of that, we could come out of this stronger in the end.

Author note: With You is part of the Perfectly Stated Series but Meadow and Shade can originally be found in With Us, book 2 in The Next Generation Series. With You is a continuation of their story and is 5 years after With Us takes place.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Macey lived a pretty typical ice she was working at a museum that held crazy and creepy things and she loved it but she’s also held magical powers. Which she only used when she needed to, as she was learning more about her craft and expanding what she can do, she thought she could make a side business out of her gift. Especially when she gets a phone call saying that he owes more on her student loans then she thought and after getting fired form her job at the museum, she didnt have much of a choice. Well she ends up doing way more then she should and ends up in a bit of trouble but when her new boy toy tries to help her out it ends up doing more harm then good. Will Macey be able to help herself outta the trouble she got herself into or not. This was a good story about how to be true to yourself and not to let anyone else change you.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Drunk Girl (Lyrics and Love 2) by Samantha Lind

A NEW STANDALONE Title from Samantha Lind in her Lyrics and Love Series!

NICK

Beautiful, broken, and abandoned.

The second I see her in my bar,

With cover charge stamps plastering her hands,

I know what I have to do.

Take her home,

Get her into bed,

Where I know she’ll be safe.

I do exactly that.

Leaving her keys and my number,

As I lock the door behind me.

She deserves more,

So much more.

ASHLEY

Shattered, vulnerable, and alone,

Trapped in a lifetime of hurt,

Trying to break the cycle.

But he came in,

Saved me,

From myself,

From my circumstances.

Showing me compassion,

And respect.

Proving I am so much more.

More than just a pathetic drunk girl.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Take a drunk girl home,isnt that what any good bartender would do or at the very least make sure she gets home safe. Well that’s exactly what Nick does when he eyes a drunk girl crying in a booth at his bar. Little does he know that she’s going to change his life upside down. Ashley was down on her luck she just lost her job and came home to find out her boyfriend was cheating on her, a night out with her best friend was what he needed and was what she did. She just didn’t know that the nice cute bartender was what she needed and from there their love bloomed into something either of them seen coming and they wouldn’t have ever thought it was because of a drinking night at a bar. This was a cute quick read while the song by Chris Jansen plays in your head the entire time.
