#WOTR21 #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Before Us (Next Generation 3) by J.M. Walker

Our relationship was toxic.

Intense.

Brutal.

When she slipped out of my hotel room, I made it my mission to have her back in my bed.

She ran.

I chased.

And when we finally crashed, I’d have to save her from the one person she trusted most…

Me.

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Oh wow this is probably my favorite book from this series. Get a glance at each of the sisters and their loved ones point of view as they get ready to have the finally sister walk down the aisle to her future husband. Plus a lot of dirty thoughts the girls dad takes all of the grandkids home with him and his girlfriend for the evening giving all the parents a much needed night off. Plus grandma Emma drops a huge ball.

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries My Kinda Player (Summer Sisters 5) by Lacey Black

AJ Summer witnessed four of her sisters fall in love and settle down. But not her. She’s stuck in a rut, destined to spend the rest of her life watching from the dugout, kissing frogs. Then one night, she meets a mysterious stranger, who makes her feel alive and realize she’s not as broken as she thought–until she wakes up alone.

A chance meeting with a gorgeous woman leaves him restless and anxious for something he swore he’d never want again–love.

But sometimes Prince Charming isn’t who he seems. What happens when circumstances are misleading? Will their love be strong enough to see them through unscathed? Or will AJ be played by the player?

#WOTR21 – #Review – Jason (Love In Scrubs #2) by AJ Renee

Jason

From the author of the St. Fleur series comes a fun tale of finding love in the most unexpected place.

Being stood up for a first date was the last thing on Ava King’s mind. Yet Mr. Wrong opened the door to Mr. Sexy, who’s already sitting next to her at the bar. One drink becomes two, and going against her own code, she goes home with the charming stranger.

Waking in Jason’s foreign bed sends her into a panic, and she escapes before any morning-after awkwardness can ensue.

Can fate bring them together again to see if their chemistry transcends one steamy night of passion?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

This book! Just read it! It’s super adorable, funny as hell, and insanely hot! Being stood up on a first date, having a one night stand, and then finding out that this person is your doctor! OMG! The embarrassment alone, that both of the characters were feeling, had me dying! The universe has a funny way of bringing people together and Ava’s and Jason’s story is witty and cute and perfect. This was a short, quick read that will absolutely hold ALL of your attention until the pages are gone. Once you start the story, just finish it. The characters are perfect for each other and reading along while they are figuring each other out will keep you smiling the entire time. I cannot stress to you enough that you NEED to read Jason. It has a little bit of everything that gives you all the feel goods. Now, just read it!

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Feel My Love (Lovelly Book 4) by Clara Stone


When it comes to family, truth matters.

For Vincent Gallo, family is everything. It’s the one thing he and the Lovellys have always seen eye to eye on. And when it comes to saving his half-brothers from their abusive mom, he’s determined to do anything—even be indebted to a Lovelly. 

But the second Ivy Rose bumps into him, she’s all he can think about. Mesmerizing, gorgeous, and seemingly mute, it’s not until he gets home that he realizes, she’s a Lovelly, too. Suddenly, he understands what drew Ace and Jessica to the Lovellys. But as a long-lost half-sister, Ivy’s life hasn’t seen the privilege bestowed upon her brothers. In fact, in some ways, it mirrors Vincent’s own.

With his half-brothers’ future at stake, can he really afford to let his heart win? Or is falling for Ivy Rose a distraction that’ll cost him everything?

I was given this book and this is my honest opinion

I don’t even know how to form words for how much I loved this book. The Lovelly family has been in my heart for years and to see the last book have the end typed out hurts my heart I wasn’t ready to say goodbye but it was a great book for saying goodbye with. Ivy is the long lost sibling that has just found the Lovelly’s and at first she doesn’t want to leave her life now even though it’s not the perfect life it was her. Vincent grew up with a drug addicted step mother, has been in jail for anger issues, and is now trying to turn his life around and get custody of his 3 younger brothers from his step mom. One day he ran into a girl at the mall and ended up with Dr Pepper all over him and well you might say it was love at first sight once he looked into Ivy’s eye. This love story is one for the books it’s heartwarming, selfless and beautiful Ivy and Vincent are the prefect storm.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Clara Stone writes YA/NA Contemporary Romance and Paranormal Romance stories and is a complete sucker for sweet, memorable kisses. She strongly believes that true love conquers EVERYTHING, along with a tub of Ice cream!

When she isn’t reading or writing or dancing, much to the embarrassment of her husband and two kids, she’s probably watching Supernatural and The Walking Dead.

#WOTR21 – #Review – Joshua (Love in Scrubs #1) by AJ Renee

Joshua (Love in Scrubs #1)

From the author of the St. Fleur series comes a fun tale of finding love in the emergency room.

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?

You need something sweet and funny…you must read Joshua! The way that Hazel and Joshua meet is incredibly embarrassing, but look out because the entire book is hilarious and sooooo sweet. Orgasms, burning sensations and a hot nurse….bahahahaha! Hazel and Joshua are both very independent people but their paths cross when Hazel ends up in the ER after using a new lube. As if I wasn’t already cringing and laughing by this point, then she meets Joshua, Nurse Hottie, in the ER. From here their chemistry is on fire, no pun intended, lol! These two were so sweet and funny, just absolutely made for each other. The epilogue finished this story perfectly. The story continued to be embarrassing, funny, and sweet the whole way through. This is a short and fast read. I was laughing from the first page clear up to the last page. I definitely was not ready for this story to be over but it ended perfectly. I loved it!

BookBub

I loved this so hard! Four Rounds is the right amount! Cricket is crazy hilarious and funny but beneath all the spunk and sarcasm is a woman that wants to be loved, completely. Theo is by the books and mostly business. Their paths cross when Cricket basically kicks Theo’s butt when he attends a kickboxing exercise class that Cricket teaches. The banter, right from the start, is freaking hilarious. I laughed out loud many many times, so great! Theo doesn’t really get a chance to decline but has signed up for four dates with Cricket, at her insistence. He is very conflicted as he is investigating a case that her father is involved in. He knows he should stop but can’t. And OMG, these dates! If anything could go wrong, it does. And they just can’t stop it from happening.   “I’m hysterical. I can’t control what’s happening right now There’s a murder scene of sauce everywhere, your bits are likely charred, and I’ inappropriately turned on by you smelling like fried cheese.”   The sexual innuendos, sarcastic comments and hilarious banter do not stop. Even when stuff hits the fan, these two make it out alive. Not necessarily unscathed but they make it out…together. This is a fun, fast paced read that will have you laughing so hard while keeping your heart happy. A must read!
