#WOTR21 #NewRelease #DoubleReview #Excerpt- Broken Shadows, The Broken Series Second Generation Book 2 by H. D’Agostino

He was the best; a champion; my father.

I’ve spent my entire life living in his shadow, and it’s slowly killing me.

I need to escape. To live in the light that I so rightly deserve. To show the world that I’m the best in my own right, a champion, and not just my father’s shadow.

Sometimes finding your own way and being the best comes at a cost. I wasn’t prepared to pay the price to live in the light, to be the best. Now I’m learning that being the best doesn’t always mean being the champ. Sometimes it means simply becoming a better man.

Easton POV

“You’re late!” Dad barked as soon as I crossed the threshold.

“By like two minutes.” I rolled my eyes. My alarm didn’t go off, and I’d over- slept this morning. I’d hauled ass to get here, but apparently it didn’t matter.

“Do you want to win this weekend?” Dad’s arms lifted and then dropped to his sides.

I refused to answer as I carried my bag over to the ring. I kicked my shoes off and tossed my shirt, before climbing through the ropes. “I’m ready.” I rolled my eyes. I was in a mood today, and having Dad on my ass was not helping.

I watched as he slipped his gloves on and climbed in. “You keep doing this, and you’re going to flame out.” He shook his head in frustration, I think.

“Doing what? I’m winning,” I mouthed back. I was being an asshole, I knew it, but I didn’t care.

“The staying out all night. The drinking. The fucking anything in a skirt. Did I miss anything?” Dad slammed his gloved hands together. “You’ve worked hard for this, and you’re throwing it away!” His voice boomed through the empty gym.

“I’m winning!” I barked back. He had a point, but I didn’t care. All the things that he complained about, weren’t keeping me from winning. Winning was all that mattered. “What are we working on today?” I mocked as I finished gearing up, and shuffled to the center. I tipped my head to the side and smirked at him. I was being disrespectful, but Dad was in trainer mode, not parent mode, at least that’s what I thought.

Before I could duck out of the way, his right fist connected with my jaw. The padding protected me from the blow, but my entire body rocked to the side. He stepped back and lifted his chin as anger flashed in his eyes.

“What the fuck!” I spit my mouth guard out as I shook off the hit.

“You will not be a little punk to me,” Dad growled. “Do you understand? You show me some respect, or I’ll lay you out right here.” The words were garbled, but the look on his face said he wasn’t playing around.

I flashed a look of understanding in his direction as I picked up my mouth guard and popped it back in. I hit my gloves together and approached center ring. He nodded, tapped his hands against mine, and backed up. For an outsider, one would think that knowing his style would put me at an advantage. The only advantage I had was age. My dad was still in top physical condition, and he made sure I knew it.

He stormed back to the center, and took another swing, but this time spun and raked his leg under me, sending me to the mat. I landed on my ass, and Dad pounced. This was not training; this was me getting a lesson. Dad was showing me that I wasn’t as good as I thought I was.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Easton you little shit!!  Yes that is how I am starting my review.  If you read his sisters book you know exactly why I am saying it!!  LOL  If not , maybe ya should.

Easton is a know it all.  He seems to think he knows MMA fighting better then his World Class MMA Fighter Dad Wes.  He is arrogant and cocky and of course a little shit.  So when he does the ultimate stupid kid move and leaves his dad as his trainer, his life begins to spiral out of control.  Sure he is fighting and winning and getting money.  But hee is also spending and drinking and making idiot decisions that will come back to haunt him and ruin everything.

When Easton hits rock bottom and has to crawl home …ok Riley drove his sorry ass home….he begins to relook at his life.  He realizes what he wants and that is to fight and be the best.  However he also realizes that helping this captivating woman in self-defense class is something he wants.

Hadleigh …man she puts up with a lot from her abusive boyfriend Josh.  She starts to train at the gym for self defense but is also worried about this guy in class who keeps trying to talk to her and now wants to be her friend.

As Hadleigh and Easton find a strange and comforting friendship, it is soon clear they both want a little bit more then they think the other is willing and ready to give.  The chemistry soon sizzles, and we see them develop more.  When they soon realize more is a possibility Easton’s bad choices come crashing back and the chance of happiness could be lost for all.

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

Easton has always been in his Dads shadow.  He is arrogant and knows he can be the best, but he wants to do it his way. He fails to see how his Dad is treating him and training him will get him where he wants to be now.  He wants results and he wants them NOW. He knows how to do it and it is not his Dad’s way so he leaves to make his dreams come true and not be in his dads shadow.  Others can see the talent that he has but he just cannot seem to keep out of trouble or out of the medias negative eye.  After he hits rock bottom his big sister has to come get him and drag him home.  Boy does he have some things to overcome and make right.

Easton goes back home and has to assist at his dads gym as punishment.  While helping, or should I say being a punching bag, at the gym during self defense classes he finds one of the ladies intriguing.

Hadleigh has had a hard few years and enrolls in the self defense classes at the gym near her home. When she meets Easton she begins to see there is another way of life out there.  But can he be the one that takes her away or will his past be too much for Hadleigh.

I enjoyed seeing Easton grow as a person and how he handled Hadleigh. Easton really came into his own when Hadleigh made an appearance. I also liked seeing Hadleigh see there are people out there she can trust.  Easton and Hadleigh have a wonderful relationship based on a strong friendship but can that be enough for both of them after everything they had been through in their past.

Ricardo, dude…you are not every going to be good enough for Kymber or man enough to defeat DJ.  Just saying.  I guess the lessons your daddy taught you, you should have paid better attention too!!

#WOTR21 #NewRelease #DualReview #Rockers- Slow Burn (Feverish #4) by Jade C. Jamison

Book Cover

When Brian and Sophie meet, there’s spontaneous combustion.

Too bad they hate each other.

Fashion model Sophia Buckley has despised Brian Zimmer from the first time she heard him speak…and so, without even getting to know him, she plots revenge, executing her plan perfectly. Playing a groupie, she engages Brian in a steamy encounter, only to leave him high and dry.

Brian figures she’s simply the mayor of Crazy Town, vowing to forget the experience and move on.

Except she won’t let him because she keeps turning up in his life.

Despite Brian’s protests, the band’s manager forces Last Five Seconds to engage with this woman because she has an innate talent for stirring up drama. Throw in the paparazzi, and both she and the band get some much-needed publicity.

Forced together, Brian and Sophie find their feelings for one another growing.

But it would never work. They are oil and water, not yin and yang.

So why do they keep ending up in each other’s life? In each other’s bed?

When Sophie cuts Brian to the quick in a very public way, he finds the fuel to walk away for good. But will he really be able to stay away?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Melinda

Received a copy of this book for an honest review.

So excited to see Last Five Seconds.  I so missed these guys, really Jet/Clay is still my favorite and loved seeing him. This one is about Brian Zimmer and a model Sophia.  Talk about taking a roller coaster ride with these two.

Sophia was on a mission to teach Brian a lesson. Brian and Sophia did not get along but his manager makes it so she is seen with him to increase the bands publicity.  These two did not get along at all but they keep getting tossed together.  They soon realize that Brian’s manager could be right and any press good or bad could be good for both of their carriers.

Once these two started spending time together the fireworks starting filling the sky.  Man does Brian know how to bring on the heat. I enjoyed this story and love all these guys.  It took me a bit to warm up to Sophia but she really shined by the end. I loved the little teaser at the end now I’m so excited for the next book.

A favorite quote:

Brian knew he’d just scored major points here. Maybe now they could move past their distrust and anger. If nothing else, at least he knew one part of her loved him – and that one part she had little control over. Brian’s job now would be to win her entire heart.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Brian!!  I fell in crazy love with you in this series.  When you got married to Kyle in The Vagabond series. I was a little sad because she was not the right person for you.  Don’t get me wrong..we loved her but not with you.  I was a smidge worried about you but was so excited you finally got your HEA.

When I opened the book and read the first chapter I was hooked.  I mean turning hate to love is a tough road and after the way Sophia treated him….I was loving it.  Sorry Brian but I was.  She GOT YOU DUDE!!

Brian and Sophia meet up again and sparks FLY.  Seems they are so compatible they combust at each turn. Even when they want to apologize, they end up fighting. The couple soon realize negative press is good for business.  With the guy’s album sales sluggish and reviews not being so kind plus Sophia realizes that this is great for booking gigs…they continue the ruse.  However, the ruse soon blows up in their faces when there are soon hiding real feelings.

I love Brian like I said before and getting to know more about “him” and why he is the jokester and funny guy made me love him even more.  Sophia is like any struggling model and soon she realizes that maybe she wants more out of life then just being a pretty face.  Law isn’t her passion but what she wants she doesn’t know but she needs Brian by her side to complete her life.

I enjoyed the story plus seeing all the other couples but reading the chapter for the next book had my heart all kinds of excited for what is to come!!!

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the book/audio whisper snyc off Amazon.

Ok so the narration for this book is yet again amazing.  Logan is the best at his job.  I admit I am being super picky with my male narration voices anymore.  Logan has crept his way to the top for me.  He does a great job varying voices for the characters and what I love the most, his female voices don’t sound squeaky and high pitched.

Lee-Lee…sis!!  You know I fell in love with your sassy fire attitude in your brothers’ book and now I get to see you up close and personal.  Lee-Lee has been under plastic bubble wrap from her overprotective but ever-loving brother.  He makes sure to chase ALL THE BOYS away but when Declan comes around, this MAN will not be swayed.

Declan is living life as a Grizzle when a broken ankle takes him to the ER.  When the sex doctor rolls in he is stunned that she is also super smart.  This is just the kind of women he can get on board with.  Then he realizes she hold his career in his hand so he was a total DB and thought he would wine and dine the doctor to get releases.  When he starts to love her, he is just as floored as the rest of the crew that he fell in love.

Lee-Lee has a plan.  She has a goal.  Yes Declan checks off the boxes but she will not be swayed away form her dream job at the dream hospital.  Thankfully, Declan makes her realize she can have more then just a career and have it with him if she just takes a chance.

The story begins to unfold, and a few issues get in the couple’s way like a jealous rival for her affection, a job change, and miscommunication.  I gotta say I loved how everything ended and how she was able to kick Declan’s older brother’s butt in to gear!    But now my eye is on Declan’s other brother for what life holds for him!!

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

To say I am thrilled to be back in the world of this family is to be an understatement.  I fell in hardcore love with the parents of the main girl, Riley, in this story.  To see her grown up and learning about her past was an exciting prospect.  The other main character, Caleb, was the son of another crazy couple’s story. I was super excited to see how he grew up.  You want to know their back story, then read the parents’ stories!!

Riley grew up with the best dad every…or did she.  She finds something that makes her question if Wes really does love her.  She cannot believe she has been lied to her entire life.  She demands her friend for life/current possible love interest help her get to the bottom of this new surprise in her life.  Her demands lead them on a cross country chase for answers and makes her daydream about possible new outcomes to her life.

Caleb is seriously the sweetest, kindest person in the world.  He loves Riley and will do anything for her including following her hairbrained scheme to travel across the USA to find an answer to her question. He is supportive and does everything to make her happy all the while keeping in touch with family back home.  He is also worried about her crazy plan but the good boyfriend in him needs to keep her safe.

Riley was not my favorite character.  I did not connect with her and felt Caleb deserved better than her a lot of the time in the novel. Caleb was always doing things to make everyone happy and this caused him the one things that made him happy….Riley.  I don’t know if the fact I don’t read lot of NA novels is maybe why I didn’t connect with her.

I loved catching up with the families and can’t wait for Easton because he is a little shit started for sure.

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

This series is about the kiddos from Heather’s Broken Series.  The series starts with Caleb and Riley. They were friends growing up but not so much now. Riley is trying to get through a breakup and things are just not going her way.  She realizes Caleb is working for her dad at the gym and she finds out a family secret all the summer before she leaves for college.

Riley is on a mission to go on a road trip to figure things out for herself after she realizes things she believed were truth are not quite as they seemed. She enlists the help of Caleb to go with her on this summer road trip.  Caleb was amazing though out this book he was so patient and put up with a lot from Riley. I’m afraid I may have left her on the side of the road sometimes.  Although maybe not I would not want the wrath of Wes after me.

Most of the ride Riley has her rose colored glasses on and starts to dream about what kind of life she could have. Caleb is supportive but tries to keep her grounded. Caleb also keeps in touch with those at home that would be worried when they went missing. He is such a great protector Wes would be proud well maybe not that proud.  Riley feels like she has been lied to by everyone and when they return realizes Caleb lied to her also. Now their relationship is on the rocks.

I absolutely loved Caleb but Riley could be a bit much at times. I liked the scenes between Wes and Riley at the gym.  I am looking forward to seeing the other kiddos in this series. Feels like I’m going back home for a family reunion.

-Vince-

She was perfect.

Her heart.

Her soul.

Everything.

I had been in love with Gigi Rodriguez for as long as I could remember. I had never been shy about my feelings toward her. Everyone knew how I felt. Except for the person who mattered most.

I needed her like I needed my next breath. Our souls called out to each other, entwining together to form a bond I had never felt with another person.

She was passionate.

Strong.

Mine.

Just when I thought I had her in my arms for good, an unknown force threatened to take away the only thing I had ever wanted…

-Gigi-

He was stubborn.

Obsessed.

Dominating.

Vincent Stone Junior was the very reason I danced. Every time I moved, I moved for him. He just didn’t know it yet.

It all started the night of his eighteenth birthday, but school got in the way and I didn’t see much of him for the next three years.

When he came home for good, I knew that he had one mission: To crack down the walls I had built.

I didn’t want to love him.

I didn’t want to need him.

But losing a piece of myself made me realize that I did in fact want those things. He taught me to love myself first and that he would be there, ready and waiting…

For me.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was giving this book for a review and this is my honest opinion 

Holy hawt damn… this book wow ur gonna need a cold rag to help cool you down. So Gigi and Vince have known each other their whole life, had feeling for each other but there was a age difference and neither one wanted to  admit their feelings for the other. Well they both gave each other their virginity the night of Vince’s 18th birthday right before he went off to school. 3 years later feels are still there and they are still having fun, will these two finally get their heads outta of their asses and let the other one know how they feel and knock down all the walls that’s surrounding their hearts. Or will they let other people feelings dictate how they live, with constants obstacles trying to get between them will they get their happiness that they both have been wanting for their whole lives. This book was amazing like everything JM writes you will never been disappointed in her words and the sexiness is on point and on fire.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Vince and Gigi…I have been WAITING for these two to get it together and finally admit there is something there! Gigi needs to stop pushing him away because he is younger and Vince needs to grab his woman and claim her.

This story is a great age gap, friends to lovers, friends from childhood, etc story. Vince and Gigi have always had a powerful chemistry.  Both wanted the other and did things to make the other jealous/take notice but secretly pined for the other…..ok so Vince quietly chased away any prospective dates for Gigi but who cares…LOL

This story is told as a little bit of a slow burn but once Vince and Gigi hit the sheets, the burn is met with gasoline and it’s an explosion of dirty words and positions. Not enough Orbit gum people not close to enough!!!

Vince has known he loved Gigi and was going to do anything and everything to prove to her he was her forever.  Gigi had slowly grown her attraction for Vince but the fear of the age gap and how her friends would respond held her back.

One night of passion changed everything and then 3 years later they are back to face down what happened and the walls she erected after their night together.

Vince…OMG he needs a medal for his ability to deal with Gigi and her walls.  They were taller then the Nights Watch in Game of Thrones..dunno the reference I am sorry for you…..He puts up with some much from his girl.  He will not let her go and will do everything to let her know he is never leaving again.  Gigi is a hot ass mess for this boy…errrr….man who has stolen her heart and melted down each and every wall she has tried to put up.

When they finally realize they are not going anywhere and they are going forward some weird things start to happen and some weird vibes start to appear.  Gigi and Vince have to deal with some trauma that could break them apart if they aren’t able to deal with it.

I am going to say it but Vince might be my favorite of The Next Generation Kids.  I love Meadow as my favorite girl, but Vince is the swoon worthiest male of them all I think.  Seriously…SWOON WORTHY!!!!  But damn that mouth too!!!  LOL  Gigi is his Queenie in public and his little slut in private!!

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

OMG so excited it is finally Vince and Gigi turn.  These two were meant to be ever since they were little. Vince has loved Gigi ever since he was little, but he is five years younger than Gigi and he knows he must by his time to prove he is enough for Gigi. When he turns 18 they share what Gigi thought was a special moment before he left for school.

Vince is 21 and returned home now is his time to make his move on Gigi. Gigi is his and always has been. Vince hurt Gigi bad and she has some big walls that he needs to tear down. Vince is patient and tries to convince her what he knows. OK she may know it too but not ready to let him in.

This is an amazing slow burn and when these two finally get together they are like an explosive. Age is just a number and has no bearing when chemistry is involved. I love seeing these two together and how they interact together. We even get a few twists in here too. I do believe Vince is my favorite so far but are a few more on the way so we will have to see if he can hold on to that special place in my heart.

#Review – Rebellious and Reckless by Michelle A. Valentine

Rebellious and Reckless (Campus Hotshots #1)

He’s Rebellious in the ring and Reckless in Love.

Sky Cold knows exactly what she wants, and it’s Luke Finnegan, the college campus star quarterback. The only problem is she’s not even a blip on his radar. In order to get noticed by her crush, she’s willing to exchange the extra bedroom in her apartment to Luke’s tattooed, older brother to find a way into his social circle.

Baker Finnegan is determined to get out of his father’s shadow and do things his way. When he falls on hard times, and the sexy, slightly nerdy co-ed Sky offers him a place to live in exchange for a fake friendship, he can’t pass up the opportunity. But when Baker quickly realizes the only match he wants to make for Sky is one with himself, he has to convince her to look past his reckless ways.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Sweet torture and a glutton for punishment. Life isn’t perfect and we don’t always get what we think we need. Think, being the key word. Things never seem to go the way you want but in the end it just works. The story is a bit on the cliche’ side because ultimately we have a nerdy type of girl who essentially has a makeover and then gets the attention of the hot guy. Only in this story, she has the attention of two brothers…both are hot in their own ways. Sky gets Baker to agree to help her get a date with his brother, Luke. Then the fun starts! Baker moves in with Sky as part of the deal. But then they start to get close. Both of them have secrets…and both involve part of their family. These secrets are most definitely not cliche’. You seriously need to read this.  As things continue to unfold they can’t deny the pull that they have between each other but Sky still can’t decide if she wants Luke or if she is falling in love with Baker. 

“Do you have your Finnegans confused?” This is one of my favorite lines because this sums Sky up completely!

We have the hot jock, the rebel fighter, and the sweet librarian. All of the makings of a romantic comedy that will keep you turning the pages. Even though some of the story is cliche’, it is still a fun read with its own twist. And that makes it a must read!
