Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Oh Imma!! Oh hot boyfriends!!  LOL  If you haven’t read the novella “ Loves Little Surprises” then this is a great story for you!!!  For people like Me who met Imma and her 5 sexy as hell mens…this book was what happened IN BETWEEN the novella.

Ok long of the short of it, Imma (in the novella) went on vacation and shacked up with these guys when the house was double booked.  The guys and Imma formed an instant bond of love and belonging.  The story picks up when Imma realizes this might not work annnnd now she is knocked up.

But

  1. Will the guys be ok with it?
  2. Who is the baby daddy?
  3. Will there be an issue with one being the baby daddy and the others not being the baby daddy?

So many questions cause our lonely girl to breaks and ruuuuuuns.  She cuts the guys out of her life and tries to rebuild.  She gets a job and moves into her own place while the guys are starting to fracture and fall apart without their girl.

When one of the guys plots with another to bring her home, everything esems better buuuuut drama ensues.  Can they make it work?  Can they handle her pregnancy?  Can they figure out a family?

This book was a great bit of “More” for me since I loved the novella but begged for a longer story.

Now I gotta tell ya, Imma’s friends are HILARIOUS and I and I am dying for their books.  Those ladies are Bat Shit Crazy in the best kinda friend way.

But my favorite part was the cameo of Kendall and her guys….sigh….a reread might be in order!!!

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

I loved this anti-love book club concept really get a bunch of ladies together and talk about how unrealistic the books are compared to real life.  Let me tell you these ladies are not love experts by any means. They are a melting pot of personalities.

First up is Imma who lost her sister and is dealing with her Mom and Dad being over critical of her.  She still lives at home and doesn’t have a job. She finds out that she is pregnant but not sure who the dad is because of a fling with 5 guys she met when a vacation took a minor detour.  Imma decides she needs to figure things out on her own.  She is afraid of what the guys will say and not knowing who the dad is she decides to ghost them.

All the guys are miserable that Im has left them high and dry with no word on why. That is until Wes finds her and confronts her. This was such a great homecoming for the guys and Im.  I really would like to know more about all Imma’s men because I fell in love with everyone of them. I do believe Thatcher is my favorite. He was the one that took the longest to come around when Imma returned.

I loved these guys I do wish I could have seen where their relationship began at the cabin. Let’s not forget the anti-love book club ladies.  I want to be in their book club and I cannot wait to learn about all of them.  I’m telling you these ladies have so much they are hiding from one another.  I liked the start of this series and cannot wait for more.

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her creating worlds with her words, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at a state park.

Just One Kiss (Oh Tequila 4)  by CA Harms

https://amzn.to/3pwBXtA

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/43070788-just-one-kiss?from_search=true&from_srp=true&qid=s9FqCDabDW&rank=44

What do you get when you mix Tequila with a house full of rowdy Fraternity brothers who have no boundaries? A cucumber, a pink thong, and a bottle of lube. Oh yeah, and super glue. There is always super glue…

Parties, drinking, and plenty of mornings where you can’t remember what you did the night before…that was my life.

Yet, there was one memory that lingered in my mind. Ten minutes in the woods with Palmer that got too intense to ignore.

But ten minutes with her wasn’t enough. It would never be enough.

She’s a force, one that swept in unexpectantly, knocked me on my ass and left me with an intense craving. Palmer tried to fight it with every fiber in her being, but I could see the desire in her eyes. That curiosity that lived inside of her, wondering what it would be like if she just gave in…again.

I had to convince her that our time together wasn’t a mistake. That she wants me as much as I want her. We share a connection, a bond, that has changed me in ways I never expected. She saved me. And to think…

It all started with Just One Kiss.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

I freaking loved this tight ball of sexual tension relationship. Corbin is bound to get under more then Palmer’s skin, he wants all of her and little does he know she wants him too just as much but she’ll never let him know that. When a horrible accident happens sending Corbin into a spiral of drugs, drinking and falling into a black hole, Palmer is the only one who can pull him out of it and bring him back. When her past has the key to bringing him back, but it’s the one secret she isn’t ready to let out of the vault yet. These two are amazing and I just loved them so much.

Ready to Were (Shift Happens Series 1) by Robyn Peterman

https://amzn.to/3lyDQDK

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23524116-ready-to-were

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever.

I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.

Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.

But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Essie left her old life in the middle of the night and moved to Chicago never looking back. A year later her new job had her forced to go back to find out what was happening to all these female werewolves that kept going missing. So she found herself taking her gay best friend vampyre back to her hometown to kill these bad guys and try not to run into the alpha who also happens to be her ex. Will she be able to get the job done without any trouble or will she find herself in her exs bed before she leaves town again. This book was amazing so funny especially when you put a guy vampyre and an older granny wolf together its bound to be hilarious and it was definitely a great read.

Being Us (the next generation 4) by J.M. Walker

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51377055-being-us

https://amzn.to/3fLnPIy

Tanner-

She was beautiful.

Loved.

Strong.

After hiding away for six months with just my dog to keep me company, I was forced out of the shadows only to end up in the arms of an enemy.

Beatrix Lister saved my life. I had been taking care of myself for so long, I didn’t know how to ask for help, but she refused to go down without a fight.

She was warm where I was frigid.

She was kind and caring where I was a cold-blooded monster.

I did things to survive.

I battled the evils of the world to live.

I didn’t deserve her heart but fell in love with her anyway.

As much as I wanted to be with her, I needed answers and I would do anything to get them.

Even if it meant breaking the heart of the only woman I had ever loved.

~

-Bee-

He was lonely.

Intense.

Brave.

Tanner Horsch came into my life unexpectedly. He was like a tornado, ripping up everything in its path.

There was something about him that I craved.

His touch. His words. His need to survive.

But as we were getting to know each other, he still had walls up.

He refused to let me in knowing my family didn’t approve of him.

I refused to let him go.

After being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he escaped and eventually he ran right into my arms.

He was the villain of someone else’s story, but he was the hero of mine.

I just prayed that he could see that not all monsters are truly evil.

Before it was too late, and he gave himself to the enemy.

My family.

I was given this book and this is my honest opinion

Where do I start this slow burn is everything I didn’t know I needed. Bee just wants to be see as an adult and not as a child, when all she’s ever been is sheltered her whole life. Tanner was at the wrong place at the kind right time to put together some missing pieces after a member of another MC club got killed the one witness that never lies a near by security camera have him at the scene making him look bad but can he help the club find out who really pulled the trigger. This couple makes you root for all things good in the world and when people try to keep them apart it only brings them closer. You will absolutely love this story with all the interruptions and feelings.

Reviving Kendall book 1 by Brandy Slaven

From Book 1:

“I’m not so sure that I’m strong enough to take yet another blow to the heart.”

Growing up, I’ve always lived on the wrong side of the tracks. I’m used to the stares, name calling, and disrespect. A tragic accident that leaves me short three of the only people I’ve ever loved, has me devastated enough to try to end my own life. Just when I think there’s no hope, I find a reason to live again, or four of them as a matter of fact. Lucas, Maverick, Teagan, and Goose. But what happens when those bonds are tested? I’m not so sure that I’m strong enough to take yet another blow to the heart. My name is Kendall Davis and what if my story doesn’t have a happy ending?

Looking for Love book 1 by Jade Jamison

From Book 1: One woman. Four weeks. Five men.
Just one chance.

“So much fun packed into a short book…and I can’t wait to find out what happens next!” SEB, Amazon reviewer

After years of putting love on the back burner and struggling to break into Hollywood as an actress, I couldn’t help myself. I jumped on an opportunity to do both—by accepting the chance to be the pursued woman in a reality television show called Matchmaker.

Choosing among five men hand-picked specifically for me should be easy, but by the time I’ve discovered that not all of the men are ideal, it’s way too late. There’s no getting out of this contract. And when I attempt to salvage the situation, I’m met with the harsh reality that I don’t really have a choice after all…

Sterling New Year Book 1 by Cheryl Dragon

From Book 1: Melody’s stuck in Sterling, Alaska over the holidays, sewing custom dresses for her friend’s wedding. She’ll do anything for her friends and is determined to be the best maid of honor she can be. There are just a few very sexy distractions.

Dale, Jason, and Ryan are lovers with an eye out for the right woman to complete their family. They’re happy to let Melody use space to make the dresses, but Dale especially doesn’t expect the perfect woman for them to show up in their small town. How are they going to explain Sterling’s unusual relationships? Even so, the trio is definitely interested in more than simply helping out with the wedding but can they win Melody over?

Melody has never been anywhere like Sterling—where group relationships are a tradition. She can’t pass up the experience of three hot men in bed but rearranging her life for them, or any man, is a ridiculous idea. Normal marriages don’t last and she’s had repeat wedding dress clients to prove it. What the quad has is more than sex but they have a lot of baggage to sort through for her to make it a Sterling New Year.

#Review – Here Lives A Corpse (Here Lives #1) by C.L. Matthews

Here Lives a Corpse is book one of a five-part series. You do have to read all to understand. Each one ends on a cliffhanger.

Here Lives a Corpse – Oct 13th
Here Lies a Saint – Dec 8th
Here Loves a Sociopath – March 2nd
Here Prays a Sinner – April 20th
Here Saves a Killer – June 1st

Life doesn’t promise anything but existence.
Losing Cass proved that.
Everyone thinks I’m crazy.
Corpse.
Freak.
Vampire.
They called me the one who never overcame the loss of her brother, the outcast, the least likely to succeed.
But what about their lies?
He jumped. He wanted to die. He killed himself.
When will they stop?
Unraveling the secrets they founded this town with seems impossible.
Detangling the bloodlines that weave the very essence of Arcadia Crest might actually kill me.
Forgetting the little details I’ve erased from my memories as a result of love could be the catalyst of my entire story.
Death brought me hatred.
Hatred drove me to them.
They touched me only in secret.
All stories end in blood, but an oath was never part of that equation.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I seriously don’t even know where to begin with this review. This book is everything. EVERY SINGLE THING. If you love reverse harem and bully romances that teeter on the dark side of things, this book is for you. I am chomping at the bit for book 2! Like seriously. This book is definitely in my top 5 books of 2020! Now for my review:

I read the blurb but still had no idea what I was getting into with this book. It’s a bully reverse harem but oh so much more than that too. I was trying to predict through the whole thing. I wanted to know why the boys were bullies. I wanted to know why Colton was the way that she was. I wanted to know everything. There are five books in this series and I have a feeling that we won’t know every thing until the very last book. I don’t want to give too much away but if you love the bully trope and reverse harem trope, you have to read this book. This is by far CL’s best writing to date. I’m so proud of her.

This book deals with secrets, lust, passion, love, betrayal, heartache and more. So so much more. Every new character mentioned, I wasn’t sure if I could trust. Even after finishing the book, I don’t think I can trust anyone. Except for Colt.

Bottom line: Do not trust anyone.

#WORT21 #NewRelease #ReleaseDay #review #RH – What You Deserve : A Gem Stone Book by Mary Martel

What You Deserve : A Gem Stone Book

One half of a whole.
That’s what I always thought I’d be.
Being an identical twin, I always believed I had that to rely on. I thought wrong.
Losing half of that whole left me feeling like I had nothing.
It crippled me.
Almost destroyed me.
And left me with an aching heart, a slew of questions, and a need for revenge so strong I could almost taste it on my tongue.
My name is Gem Stone. My twin’s name was Gin. We might have looked like the same person, but we were not. Divorce and a disgusting mother forced us apart at a young age, and a horrible family kept us that way.
Still, we remained best friends—or so I thought.
When you lose the other half to your whole, the other half of your soul, you lose everything.
But I wasn’t ready to give up everything, even when I felt like I was dead inside.
My twin kept a secret from me. One that changed everything and made me look at her in a whole different light.
I ache for answers to my questions, and I find salvation where I shouldn’t. Mostly, I crave some type of vengeance. Something, anything, to make me feel better about what I’ve lost.

What You Deserve is a 100,000+ word m/f/m contemporary book for readers 18 and up.

What You Deserve : A Gem Stone Book by Mary Martel

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

Look, I effing love Mary with my entire black heart and soul.  So every book I jump into with so much excitement.  Each and every damn book she BLOWS ME AWAY.  This book was no different.  I loved that she seemed to be taking on a bit of a mystery/suspense angle in this book.  This seemed to be a new writing style and I was on board with it totally.

This book has an interesting concept.  Your twin who is the other half of your soul turns out to be not the person you thought she was.  Gem was DEVISTATED to lose her sister from divorce when they were 8 but then when she was 17 to have her actually DIE was a whole new heartache.  She, along with her hot as fucking hell best friend Franklin AKA Franks AKA Bossy McBossy Pants AKA Whole Lotta sexy on a stick…Jesus its hot.  Can I get a damn drink?  Fuck my girl panties over Franks have melted!!

Where was I?  Oh yeah Gin dies and Franks helps Gem recover.  When another death rocks Gem, Franks is there to help her but is not to happy when Riley AKA Ken Doll AKA Gins Bestie AKA Sweetest guy in the whole wide world is there too.

Gem is discovering things about her twin she isn’t too happy with.  Franks is dealing with his crazy pops.  Riley is dealing with what he is finding out about his bestie, Gin, while also falling crazy in love with Gem AND dealing with his mental mom plus a crazy ass stalker from school….did you get all of that?

Friends, This book is amazing and when we find out a lot about Gin I was just as stunned at Gem.  I felt the hurt and the lose but also the need for revenge against people who hurt her sister.  With Franks and Riley at her side, loooook out world because Gem is out of control!!

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

Kendall is just your normal girl who happens to be from the wrong side of the tracks she moved in with her grandparents at a young age when her parents both ended up in jail then cancer took her grandma and now its gotten her grandpa too but hasn’t taking him. she works for everything they have and tries her best to be able to stay above paying the bills and keeping their trailer from getting taking away. After losing the loves of her life in a car crash she hast been the same until one night at work she was sent to a table of 4 sexy as hell guys and for the first time in 2 years she was flirting with them. well that was all it took for them to click the 5 started hanging out more and things started happening kisses were exchanged and well things could get super messing so Kendall put the brakes on she wasnt going to be the reason these friends would break apart if they were to fight over her. well Maverick, Goose, Lucas, and Teagan has other plans they didn’t share with others but they were all falling for Kendall and she was falling for them all. wow this book is amazing and their relationship is so cute and ugh gives you all he feels. even with all the ups and downs through this book definitely couldnt put it down.

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at one of the state parks. Bringing her characters to life is one of her greatest accomplishments.
