Review by Twinsie Kelly

This is going to be a tough review for me to write because I don’t want to give anything away. First things first, I love V and Lane. I have from the beginning and am ecstatic that they finally get their story told. The entire family has grown and I just love that they continue on these stories. Since the blurb makes you think about what the tarot reader foretold from the first book for V’s and Maggie’s future, I can’t give you many details of what happens in this story. What I can tell you is that it is super hawt and steamy. There are quite a few surprises that will keep you on your toes. And about the time I thought the book was coming to an end…the madness was only getting started! I was surprised that the spell V casted even worked, and that it worked so well. And on top of that someone from the past shows up to wreak havoc! This story constantly pulls at your heartstrings. This one for me was a very emotional book. When you read it, you will understand completely. This is a definite must read! Oh, and btw… here is my one and only spoiler, the next book is Ari’s! Can’t wait!

Susan Griscom

Susan writes paranormal and contemporary romance–steamy and sexy are the way they usually turn out. She’s a huge fan of superheroes and bad boys confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers, and abilities beyond the norm mixed with hot, blow-your-socks-off romance.

She grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania doing a lot of daydreaming. It’s no big surprise that she writes romance stories, since many nights as a child she would lay awake fantasizing about her knight in shining armor.

Her wild imagination sparked her first story at the age of twelve; a story that her sixth grade teacher adopted for the class play that year. Having never achieved fame and fortune for that play, she attempted life the normal way with other activities, such as, working as a food lab technician, bartender, and cell phone repair technician, and a mom.

Now she lives in Northern California with a gorgeous view of Folsom Lake from her office where she stills spends a lot of time daydreaming. She loves to drink wine and fortunately there are several local wineries close by. Together, she and her modern day knight have five great superhero kids and nine mini-superhero grandkids, so far.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys hanging out with friends and family drinking wine and dancing.

CL Ebook Cover

DEMONS. WITCHES. CURSES. Brandy had no reason to believe in any of them, until things started getting weird after her birthday. Her powers surprise her, sending her life into a tailspin and painting a glowing target on her back. Every day, she crosses the path of the next unexpected thing, and there’s a handsome yet annoying stranger that has the information she doesn’t know she needs. She’s questioning everything she’s been raised to believe, but she’s running out of time. Can a secret family legacy help her hone her magic before it’s too late? Or will she join the other fallen witches and their curse?

I was given the ebook from the author for an honest review.

I was so excited when AJ told people she was writing a paranormal.  I did not know it was witches until much later.  I admit witches are not my favorite of the paranormal universe, but I could not wait to jump in.  I wanted to see what AJ created.

Brandy is a witch that has no clue she is a witch.  Seems her family on both sides come from a long line of witches buuuut no one told her until right after her birthday.  When strange things start to happen and a tall dark drink of water helps save her from a tublar…aka low-level demon…she is thrust into this new world of shifters, witches, demons and more.

Ryan is sooo never going to mate because women are trouble.  He and his bestie Peter are going to hang out playing Xbox and enjoy being bachelors but then……he meets Brandy.  His world flips and he is not too happy about it….at first.

The story is interesting in that Brandy, Ryan and Peter are trying to figure out the who’s and why’s of what’s going on with Brandy and the people after her.  I will say the world building in the beginning made that story flow a bit slow.  BUT by about 45% I think the pace picked up and we are learning more about her family curse, her siblings plus the paranormal world in general.  I am so loving Peter and even Xander.  I seriously hope they get a book because Peter was the BEST Side character EVER!!!  Him and his relentless teasing of Ryan by calling Brandy Baby cakes cracked me up.

Ethan’s book will be interesting to see what else they learn about their blood line from the past plus seeing Serena again will be a fun read.

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

So glad I was able to read this paranormal. Brandy is strong, sassy and strong willed. All of which she needs to handle what was just tossed at her.

Brandy just turned 21 and her world just tilted on its axis. She lost her boyfriend and learned everything that went bump in the night was indeed real. Strange Things were happening around her and weirdos were coming out of the woodwork. Thank goodness for a stranger that came to her rescue.

Ryan was closed off never wanting a mate but when he saw Brandy he was a goner. I loved Ryan and his bff Peter. After Ryan helped brandy that night a whole new family opened up to her. She already had 6 older protective brothers but it seems she gained another in Ryan’s bff Peter.

Can A family secret or should I say curse tear these two apart before they even get to know each other better. I will take the strength of an entire family blood or not to take on this curse.

I am so intrigued by the guys in this book from all her brothers to Peter and Xander. I cannot wait to see where this series goes. Alpha Peter needs a mate.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

What a wild ride! This is a fantastic start to what I believe will be an incredible series! There are a lot of moving parts to this story and they were meticulously woven together to create a wonderful story. Brandy is the baby of the family, and the only girl. You can only imagine how overprotective her brothers are, haha! Right from the beginning, her life goes down in a chaotic and crazy tailspin. She feels like she is falling apart. Crazy things are happening to her and are now following her. She can’t for the life of her figure out why things are literally floating all around her. Then a knowledge bomb is dropped on her by the sexy stranger, Ryan. Slowly the story unfolds revealing enormous secrets full of magic…the good and the bad. During the story, Brandy and Ryan form an inseparable bond that the two of them struggle with figuring out. Then there is Peter, Ryan’s best friend. Peter is that goofy, being sarcastic at all the wrong, but right, times friend that you will always want to have your back. (I hope there are good things in store for him in the next books!) There is a constant struggle going on that makes you really connect with the characters in some very realistic ways. Their journey brings them in contact with many paranormals from witches and demons to hellhounds and werewolves. The good, the bad, and the ugly. There is great world building, relatable and lovable characters, lots of emotions, and some serious sexy time. This book has it all! The story is an incredible journey and an absolute must read.

#WOTR21 #NewRelease #Review – No Love for the Wicked by Jessica Cage

No Love for the Wicked

A desire for Light. A mark for Dark. A fate that would change the world.

Sierra Grey is a Daughter of the Dark, she’s a wicked witch. As good as she is at being bad, it never felt right to her. There was always the longing for something more, something she shouldn’t give two cents about, LOVE.

Unfortunately for Sierra, love was not something that could penetrate the icy exterior of the heart of a Daughter of the Dark.
Just as she’d accepted that it was her destiny to be alone, everything changed.

Her unexpected attraction to Horacio, a Light witch, goes much deeper than a physical attraction. Her budding feelings for him are not only against the law, but it puts a target on her head.

Will Sierra ignore her misplaced emotions and return to the Dark or will she risk it all for the chance of something more?


No love for the Wicked is a standalone Novella by USA Today Bestselling Author Jessica Cage.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

 

In a parallel world with Earth, Sierra is a Daughter of the Dark. She is not destined for love or any type of an HEA. However, she has always felt different and that she was meant for the Light. She tries to keep her friendships with the Lights but as life goes on it gets more difficult every day. But one day, she runs into a Light hottie named Horacio and can not stop thinking about him. All of her senses are on high alert. She is sent on a mission with Horacio and here is where the trouble starts. Both of them can’t deny their attraction and naturally, sparks fly! Here is where things really get messy. While both of them have always abided by the rules and did what they were supposed to do, something more sinister was going on and they were at the very root of it. When the twists start coming, they do not stop. Secrets are uncovered and then they really have to decide what is right and what is wrong…then decide if they go down that path. Now, this is a novella and is a quick read but the author did a great job putting a lot of action, sexy time, and snark into such a fast read. The ending had me completely shocked. I had no idea that it was going this way and that it would end right there. There were some areas where I wish there was more to the story or areas that could have been elaborated on, but then it wouldn’t be a novella. All in all, it was a great read that gives you a little bit of everything in a small action packed package.

Audio Book

I received a copy of the audio of this book from the author.

I read this book a few years ago.  I fell in love with these guys and Ariel. It was fun to listen to the audio.  I forgot so many little things I was nice to be reminded.  The narrator, Melissa Schwairy , was very good. I felt like I was right there in the book. I didn’t want to push the pause button when my real life needed attention.

Here is my original review:

So when you are on a road trip with your BFF and she starts to read this book to you while you drive stating you just have to read. Well you listen to her and let me tell you she was right.  I am hooked on this series.

Ariel Kimber has not had an easy life mostly thanks to her mother. Her mom abuses her and has men going in and out her door like people going in and out a revolving door. Her mom meets a man and uproots her to a strange town and new school with no friends. The hurt doesn’t end there being the new girl at school proves to be difficult especially when the town knows her mom’s rep.  When she meets her neighbor’s things start to change for her.

Tyson lives with his Uncle Quinton and twins, Able and Addison.  Ariel becomes fast friends with Tyson but she is leery of Uncle Quin. These four are keeping a big secret from Ariel and she has no idea how much she has in common with them or why she is drawn to them.

The connection these guys and Ariel have is off the charts. The surprises and twists Mary Martel puts in this one has me wanting more and more as I read. The characters are different in their own way and I want to know everything about each one..yes, even Uncle Quin he is so brooding and mysterious.

I am so glad my partner in crime made me listen to this one.  I am hooked and so ready for the next book.

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.

#WOTR2020 – #Review – Tallulah’s Temptation (Sea Shenanigans #1) by Robyn Peterman

Tallulah's Temptation (Sea Shenanigans #1)

Pirate Doug

What in the Chicken of the Sea was I thinking to agree to this half arsed Otherworld Defense Agency mission?

I’m the most absurdly good looking Vampire Pirate of the High Seas. Being on the run for my life is very important work… and a freaking full time job. Defending Mermaids from some vicious Sea Hags is going to cut into my pilfering time.

Unacceptable.

Even though this is a very bad move on my part, I know I’ll eventually agree—too many bounties on my arse to refuse, and the thought of a certain Mermaid makes my roger quite jolly.

However, Tallulah, the leader of the Mystical Isle Pod of Mermaids, isn’t going to be happy to see me… at all. The horrible, sexy, breathtaking woman has been starring in my dreams for too many years to count. Sadly, just when my mind wanders to the really good nookie part, the dream ends with her lopping my Johnson off.

I just hope to Hell and back that the Sea Hags have some outstanding booty to steal. If I’m going to have to regrow my tallywhacker, the treasure had better damned well be worth it.

Tallulah
Running a tourist trap for humans in the Bermuda Triangle had sounded like a fine plan—until it wasn’t. With the Sea Hags gunning for our island and ruining our questionably successful business, I did what any desperate Mermaid would do. I called for backup.

Of course, getting help from the Otherworld Defense Agency is risky as they don’t usually deal with ocean creatures. Whatever. Desperate times call for crappy measures. Chances are they’ll send freaking Pirates. I hate Pirates…

Well, I hate one Pirate in particular.

Hopefully, it won’t be the one seafaring jackhole I despise more than any other. Pirate Doug would be an idiot to show his face here after what he’d done. Not only did the dumbass abscond with our treasure, the son-of-a-bitch took my heart with him as well.

I’ll tear his sorry ass to shreds if he so much as steps even one hairy toe on my island.

A total riot! If you need a crazy pick me up, this is for you! I was in sort of a slump with the books I had been reading and I knew that one of Robyn Peterman’s books would cure that. I listened to this on audiobook and it was the best! Just listening to Pirate Doug, the most handsome vampire pirate ever, and to Tallulah, the beautiful mermaid that wants to chop off Pirate Doug’s jolly roger for stealing from her and taking her heart with him, was hysterical! These two have the best banter! The narrators were both incredible and perfect for this story. I literally laughed out loud so many times while listening to this story. Some of the situations that they got into it were just plain crazy. I just couldn’t get off of the crazy train. It’s ridiculously funny! I can only imagine the rest of the books in this series and how their stories will go. I’m ready for the next!

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Holy moley was this a great book I’ve had a hard time trying to put into word how much i loved this book while not giving important information away. Ariel was just your average girl well as average as she could be she was just moved from her high school that she loved because she could blend in with the crowd and no one noticed her. Her mom was a whore and went from one rich man to the next and didn’t care how she ruined Ariels life in the process. So at a new school with everyone is staring and talking about her Ariel definitely didn’t like it one bit. Then things started to change the boy next door never talked to anyone but everyone noticed that he treated Ariel differently, and when he paired up with her for a class project she wasn’t too sure how to handle that i mean after all he was very good looking but he did snarl at her. Well there is more between these two then just looks and class projects they definitely had some magic flowing between them. This book will get you hook line and sinker, feeling for Ariel and her mothers relationship, curiously wondering about the next door neighbors and why they are all so sexy with their good looks, and wondering what is up with this new man candy her mom has claimed this time.

Mortality might kill him if the crazy witch that hexed him doesn’t.

When Ashton finds himself at the wrong end of a powerful witch’s hex, gone is his comfortable life as a bartender at Hallow’s End. With his gift of thrall, he never wanted for beautiful women — human or supernatural — to warm his bed and satiate his hunger. But plagued with mortality, he’s lost his coordination, strength, and the one power that helped him catch a meal.

Gray hairs and body aches are only the first warning signs of a bigger problem. If Ashton can’t break the spell, he’s not sure he’ll make it to next week. Faced with the choice to either relive a mistake or let the hex do him in, he enlists the help of his best friend, Tensley.

Together, they embark on a trip from Texas to New York in search of the one thing they believe can cure Ashton. Only, Ashton can’t tell what’s in more danger, his immortality or the walls he’s put up around his heart. Will he be able to endure the dangers ahead without losing himself to the nightmares of his past?

#WOTR20 #5YearFamily #Paranormal #Vampires #Saga #KU – Bishop, The Protectors Book 15 by Teresa Gabelman

Bishop (The Protectors Series) Book #15

Witch hunter and new VC Warrior, Bishop Valentino, takes pride in his duties, both past and present. Never once has he doubted his past as a witch hunter. That changes when a beautiful, independent witch occupies his mind more than he’s comfortable with.

Helping his new brothers of the VC keep all the Dragonfly Coven safe from the diabolical warlock, Orjyll, is Bishop’s number one priority. When that priority begins to shift and his focus is pulled away, his allegiance to the brotherhood is at risk.

Saving the world is something Bishop and the Warriors tirelessly do every day. But keeping witches safe is something new for Bishop, and if they fail and the Grail women fall to what the Fates bestowed on them many years ago, Hell on Earth could come swiftly.

To lose the epic battle between good and evil is not an option. Bishop has to find balance between his oath to the brotherhood and his heart. If not, life as he knows it will change forever.

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

I finished this book and had to sit and think about how I would rate it.  I was a little confused because I never have trouble rating these books…mainly because they are all amazing IMO and that is what this blog post is about.

I have loved Bishop and the chemistry between him and Bonnie.  But in the Warrior Wedding when they kissed and the sparks were flat, I was like WTF??  What is happening??  Are we getting a new more amazing person for Bishop?  Who can be more amazing then Bonnie??? Because sweet baby Jesus she might be my favorite female in the series!!!  Her sass and fire plus ridiculous comedy….that is a win in my book.

Then we find out why the kiss was so flat and I was like GUUUUURL Bonnie you don’t mess with a Warrior that way….LOL.   But I THINK the initial set up with them was a little slower then and the building of the transition was also a bit slower….the transition reference you gotta read because I am not about to spoil anything ya’ll.  So because of that it seemed a lot slower of a book.  Teresa’s book are generally action packed from moment to moment.  I am not saying that is a bad thing but I wasn’t expecting it.

After the story picks up and we know what is going to happen, I was bucked in and READY ‘TA GO.

I loved the dynamic of Bishop and Bonnie.  The witch and the witch hunter plus I loved the memories he can give her of her mom.  That in itself is something not everyone can do or would do for her.

The final scenes of the book were intense, and I was a bit worried for a few seconds reading the book because I wondered what was going to happen.  Seeing Sloan Murphy lose his shit was kinda hawt as hell too.  Who knew???

All in all once I sat down and thought about it, I really loved the slower build of the book.  I loved seeing Daniel and learning more about his talents.  I am so damn ready for Raven and Charger to get a book.  She is a fierce Protector and she is going to make him do a whole lot of begging to get back in to her bed!!

#WOTR20 #newrelease #review #series #Paranormal #witches #Coven #RH – Rain Kimber, An Ariel Kimber Novella by Mary Martel

Rain Kimber: An Ariel Kimber Novella

Rain Kimber thought that finding his daughter and finally being able to be a part of her life after so many years without her would be the end of his adventure.
He thought he’d find her, take care of the woman who’d stolen his child away from him (you don’t want to know), and then the two of them would immediately become the family they’d been before she’d been taken. Rain would soon learn that life didn’t always work out the way you wanted it to, and really? That was a lesson he should have learned a long time ago.
But it wasn’t all about heartbreak for Rain. With his daughter he gained an entire Coven of family, even the ones he didn’t want. What father got along with all of his daughter’s boyfriends? Not Rain, that’s for sure.
Just as life wasn’t all about heartache anymore for Rain didn’t mean it was all about happiness and rainbows either. The Alexander Coven, the one his daughter had joined, seemed to be a magnet for trouble and Ariel Kimber was right in the middle of it. Which meant Rain was right there with her.
And he wouldn’t have it any other way.


Goodreads


I received this book from the author for an honest opinion/Review.

I gotta admit when I got this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Would we learn about Rain and Ariel before she was taken?  Would we see the happy Dad and family man?  Would we see Rain watching Ariel and judging her boys?  What will we learn?

DUDE!  We learn all that and more in many ways.  First up.  Rain is one Loyal MFer.  He will stick by you through thick and thin even when you are Uncle Quinton and make Ariel mad.  He will do anything for his daughter and anyone who he thinks needs him.  He will always hate Marcus *Snicker* and he will love his dead wife for all eternity.  That statement made my heart happy and sad.  I mean he needs to open his heart but yet he just cant.

I loved getting to know this man…not just Ariel’s dad but this MAN.  He is some kinda crazy but also just the right crazy for this coven.  Seeing his heart learn to love another in this book and even accept another of Ariel’s boyfriends as “worthy” of her made my day.

I loved how this book pushed Ariel’s story a bit but also not enough if you miss it you will be lost.  We had some major plot twists and even a couple vomiting in my mouth moments with the Council but are we even shocked they shock us anymore???  Nope.
