I purchased this book.

A few authors I follow are in the “Flirt Club” and release short stories occasionally through the year.  As I was looking over the different titles by other authors, I grabbed this one because HELLO Mountain Men.  Yes Please.

This is a short and sweet…ok naughty….insta-love story.  I grabbed this book knowing it would be both insta-love annnnd naughty so hey, do not judge.

Cedar and Pine are foster brothers who have decided to make a life in the mountains.  They both have jobs but can work anywhere.  When they are enjoying a day at the lake, they hear a woman cry for help.  The men jump to save the woman.

Birdie is stuck in a bad homelife with an abusive stepdad.  She jumps into a boat to try and get away when she noticed it has a hole in it. She is saved from drowning by two hulking guys.

Birdie finds she is super attracted to the men and they are to her as well but yikes….neither of the brothers will cross the line for fear of hurting the other…..sooooo….Birdie lets the fellas know she might have an idea for all parties!!

It was a super sweet story and I loved the epilogue a ton.

Frankie Love writes filthy-sweet stories about bad boys and mountain men. As a thirty-something mom to six who is ridiculously in love with her own bearded hottie, she believes in love-at-first-sight and happily-ever-afters. She also believes in the power of a quickie.

❤ Get ready to fall in love … you deserve it! ❤

#Review – Blindly Indicted (Paranormal Prison) by Katie May

Blindly Indicted (Paranormal Prison)

I lived my life as a prisoner.

I’ve always been told stories about the real world, but I haven’t seen it for myself. All I have ever known is pain.

And darkness.

They tell me I have been blind since birth.

When I make my escape, I think freedom is finally within my grasp…

Until I’m captured by the paranormal police for a murder I didn’t commit. Apparently, I have powers—powers I have always suspected myself of having.

Normal people can’t see through other people’s eyes, right?

Thrust into Nightmare Penitentiary, I meet a group of hard, alpha, psychotic inmates who believe I’m the answer to all their prayers. Me? I’m just trying to survive and figure out what it means to live. My new home isn’t just a prison, but a labyrinth with horrors around every corner.

But what if the cost of my life is my freedom? Am I willing to trade one cage for another?

Welcome to Nightmare Penitentiary where you come in handcuffs and leave in a body bag.

This is NOT a bully romance. These men are all hardened criminals and extreme alphas, but they adore their female. Be prepared to enjoy a painfully naïve female main character who slowly grows as the book progresses and a group of psychotic, murderous males. This book contains strong language, sexual situations, and a reverse harem romance.

Welcome to the Land of Misfit Toys…only for Monsters. I loved the concept of this story and was sucked right in once I read the blurb. I am rounding this up to 4 because there were some really amazing parts of the story. I started the book and was completely engrossed, I mean completely sucked in. We start right when Nina is escaping a hell hole. She is blind but can see through other’s eyes. She has been held captive from a very young age. When the author puts in the blurb “ Be prepared to enjoy a painfully naive female main character who slowly grows as the book progresses…”, this is exactly what you will get. Nina is smart but really is painfully naive and at times I had to roll my eyes at just how dense she was. But we get beyond this, she is being framed for a murder she didn’t commit and is deposited in Nightmare Penetentiary, a labryinth prison for paranormal criminals. Little does she know, her best friend, Kai, who was imprisoned with her in the hell hole she escaped from, ends up being king of the prison she is deposited in. But from here we meet all of his comrades, right hand men, lackeys, whatever you want to call them. They are all equally as twisted and insane as the next but all very different from one another. The one thing they have in common is Nina. They are all drawn to her. Here is where the book lost me for a bit…We have to get to know her harem. Which is great and what we need to do but some of it took much more time than needed and sometimes felt a little unnecessary to the story itself. I was expecting more of the “action” and “story” while getting to know these crazy men with all their hawtness and alpha crazy coming out, but it seemed like the “action” and “story” were put on hold while getting to know them. However, the storyline amps back up again and takes you into a lot of “WTFs” and “where the hell did that come from?” type of stuff. So, it indeed drew me back in and turned out to have some crazy twists and turns that I needed. Although this isn’t one of my absolute favorites, I did enjoy the story and am intrigued enough to check out other stories from this author.

#WOTR20 #CoWritten #Zombies #RH – Zombie Queen by Brandy Slaven and Mary Martel

The beginning…
The beginning is always the best place to start when reflecting on what has been.
Thinking back on it, my life had been perfect.
Middle class girl in high school with a happy home life.
My life had been full of nothing but promise.
Life was good.
Everything was great.
And then my whole world went to shit. In one day.
The disease came first.
Then the dead.
It was a fight for my life every single day from the start. But I was different from all the rest.
I had heard my mother’s screams while watching my sister become one with the undead. All the while feeling like there was absolutely nothing I could do to help them.
It killed me.
What’s more, it changed me.
I did everything I possibly could to survive on my own.
And then I learned how to survive with others.
By being their Queen.
Their Zombie Queen.
And by being the most feared woman they ever came in contact with.

This is a WhyChoose novel full of zombies, a sword wielding badass chick, and an army of dudes.
Recommended age 17+ due to content and language.

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

I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing and crazy good this story is.  The first chapter will have you on the edge of your seat.  My heart was in my throat listening to Emerald tell you about the day everything changed for her.  If that chapter does not keep you totally enthralled, then when you hear the description of the life and surroundings Emerald has…I felt my skin crawling because it was so tense and so claustrophobic.  I was dying but in heaven dying!!  It was totally a good thing!

This book is so fast paced at times with so much action and then other times we are feeling the despair and fear of Emerald.  We know its been 16 months and we know she is sad, lonely and scared.  When the Sam appears I admin I was scared outta my mind because women aren’t treated the best in these worlds and Emerald knows this first-hand.  As the other guys start to show Emerald they are not the bad guys and can be trusted, we see her open up and hope beyond hope she had a safe place.  A Family to call her own.  Complete with a crazy Granny!!

The story is a lot of interpersonal relationships and dealing with the all the men and one Emerald.  But when Emerald makes some proclamations, I was like GET IT GIRL!!!  When our family is starting to come together and starting to find a rhythm, chaos finds them and its not even the crazy girl or the wild man who bring it home.

I loved the action and loyalty this family shows one another.  But sweet Baby Jesus if you ladies don’t write another book, Imma be broken.  I need some more time with some of the guys and Emerald

#WOTR2020 – #Review – Soul Rebel (Death’s Kiss Book 1) by C.J. Pinard

Soul Rebel (Death's Kiss Book 1) by [C.J. Pinard, Book Cover by Design]

A vampire took his soul. He wants it back.

When 21-year-old Nolan Bishop meets a seductive redhead at a dark club in downtown Shreveport, little does he know that his soul will be gone as soon as she leaves the club. It doesn’t take Nolan long to realize that Eva Sheridan, the succubus who now invades his dreams, has taken something from him. Through the underground network of the supernatural in New Orleans, he discovers he has seven days to destroy Eva before he turns into a sinister and feral vampire himself.

In a race against all that is holy, Nolan encounters Eva’s identical twin, Charity, who is still very much a human. As he begs for Charity’s help in locating Eva, she realizes that his utmost desire is to kill her sister. Although Eva is a relentless succubus, Charity doesn’t want her sister to die. Now, it’s up to Nolan to determine his own future. While Charity and Nolan grow closer, he struggles with destroying her sister. Can he choose between his humanity and his heart in a mere seven days?

Soul stealing succubus! I love this story! It was a fast, fun and steamy read. I absolutely recommend it! We start with Nolan, our super cute, motorcycle riding, tatted up, good guy that is ready to pop the question to his girlfriend. Nooooooo! Here is mistake number one. When he discovers that it’s a mistake, his friends finally talk him into checking out a new club. Here is where things go badly… Nolan is completely enraptured by Eva, the hot chick in VIP. They spend a little time together, nothing crazy, and then he is sent on his way. Then things really go wonky. He is approached by the supernatural police and is told that Eva is a succubus and has taken his soul. He has seven days to kill her to stop from becoming a vampire. Wow! This sucks! Then all sorts of crazy starts. He is such a great guy that he can’t even think about killing someone, let alone the succubus that essentially stole his life. Ok, so I loved that this was about a succubus. Not just a regular vampire with a blood exchange, blah, blah, blah. A succubus has been thrown in and she has a TWIN! The plot gets juicy! Nolan ends up enlisting Eva’s twin, Charity, to help him figure out a way to stop the change. Charity is human and loves her sister. She wants to believe that her sister wants to do right. But as you can imagine, Eva is just a succubus with no soul. Nolan and Charity go to New Orleans and encounter many different “people” along with Eva. What I love is that you can see the romance blossoming between Nolan and Charity. Two people that you can just see are meant for each other even though everything is going to hell in a handbasket and very quickly. Oh! And Archie, Nolan’s boss, has a big secret revealed, so you have to read this! It will all make sense, promise. This review feels really jumbled for me… and probably for you… but it’s because there are so many things that happen, and they happen quickly, that suck you in from start to finish. I can’t give anymore spoilers. What I can tell you is that once you start this story, you won’t be able to put it down. It is fast paced, action packed, with a super sweet love story weaved throughout. I have already one-clicked the second book. What can I say? I couldn’t wait!

#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!

#NewRelease #2ndChance – Love and Music (Small Town Secrets Book #3) by Jade Jamison

Love and Music (Small Town Secrets Book 3) by [Jade C. Jamison]

Years later, he still takes her breath away. Does that mean he’s the one?

Time has not changed the way Megan feels about her ex Tyler Green, now a famous rock star. It’s pathetic, and that’s why she absolutely will not—WILL NOT—attend her ten-year high school reunion. But her bestie convinces her that there’s no way a guy like Tyler would ever attend their reunion anyway. He’s got better things to do with his time.

Megan feels like a complete idiot when he shows, but she feels even more foolish when she confirms she’s still head-over-heels in love with him. It’s doomed to fail: their worlds are now completely different, urban rocker and country mouse. But how will she ever be able to let him go again?

Curl up by the fire with a glass of wine or a mug of hot chocolate and settle into Winchester, Colorado—where the nights are cold…but steamy!

Portions of this novel were previously published in 2012 as the book Madversary.


Goodreads


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

Uhm can I say Tyler is some delicious fun!!! This story is a fun, sexy read. It is all about Megan who doesn’t want to attend her 10th year high school reunion but her bestie basically pouts, whines and strong arms her into going. Megan says she will stay but If Tyler shows, she is outta there. She is still madly in love with her first love and doesn’t think she can survive him leaving again.

SOOOOO the weekend arrives and Lisa (the bestie ) says “yeah uhm sooo Tyler is coming!!” Megan is not thrilled. She never assumed Mr. Rock Star would come back to town. Well Tyler strolls in and immediately Megan and him have this instant connection but Megan thinks it is a “friend zone” connection. Boy is she proven wrong later that night in his room *wiggles eyes*

Sooo Megan gets Fa-Reaked out by the sex and connection so she does what any irrational girl does, she leaves!!! Tyler is freaked out he did something wrong. Well Megan doesn’t hide anymore and Tyler and her again have a hot and steamy connection after his band performs at the reunion. All seems to be going great until *insert wicked witch theme song* Tamara arrives. She was Tyler’s Ex before Megan. She makes Megan doubt Tyler’s intentions and fidelity .

Wanna know what happens? Well People you are gonna have to read. I will say I loved the ending of the story and the banter between Tyler and Megan. it made my heart very happy……

1. Dream 2. Play some music 3. Write 4. Blow readers away 5. Repeat

Jade C. Jamison is a steamy romance author, heavy metal fangirl, wife and mom, coffee connoisseur, cat lover, and vegan foodie–not necessarily in that order. She loves life and believes we learn our wisest lessons when reading, especially fiction. Her heroines are fierce, her heroes all but broken, both seeking redemption together. Whether those books are set in a small Colorado town or big city, she strives to take her readers’ breath away…one story at a time.

#WOTR #Review – Sunken Empire (Saga of Evanescent Realms Book 1) by Brandy Slaven

Sunken Empire (Saga of Evanescent Realms Book 1) by [Brandy Slaven]

When Rubi finds herself out on a singles cruise headed for the Bahamas, she can’t help but to wonder how her life has gone so horribly wrong. Many speed dates later and one drunken night on the deck sends Rubi head over heels, literally. She finds herself in the cold water of the Atlantic watching the boat she was cursing not long ago, sail off into the distance. Stranded in the middle of the ocean, she knows it’s only a matter of when she dies, not if. When three gorgeous identical strangers show up out of nowhere, Rubi is certain she is drunk and hallucinating. As they whisper dark promises in her ear and drag her into the dark abyss, she says goodbye to her pathetic life. Little does Rubi know, she is about to be thrust into a world full of magic, centuries old prophecies, sea monsters, and mermaids.


Goodreads


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

This was my first mermaid story and Brandy has made me a mermaid fan. Seriously those mermen are so yummy.

Rubi is on a cruise where she gets wasted and finds herself floating in the ocean watching the boat sail away. She has it set in her mind she is a goner but not sure if it will be from drowning or eaten by sharks. Can you imagine her surprise when she wakes up with not one but three sexy men?

Rubi’s Z’s have such different personalities but all have the same end goal to mate with their Rubi and hopefully break the curse. Rubie’s men are wonderful with her the way they take time to mate with her. Rubi has so much to wrap her mind around. She has such a short time to comprehend she is a mermaid who has more than one mate and will someday be their queen.

Brandy did a great job of pulling me into this new world. I loved all the twists in this book from finding out who Rubi’s family is and learning about her three Z’s family. I have to say there were others in this book that I cannot wait to learn more about.

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.

Sunken Empire by Brandy Slaven

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

When Brandy told me she was writing a RH about mermaids….girl I was all in.  I think I have read maybe 1 or 2 mermaid books.  Hello mermaids are awesome!

So I started reading the book and was initially in love with the males in the story.  Each Mer was totally different but all looking for the way to reclaim their kingdom.  When they go out on a swim, they feel a put and get a sign that their mate is near.  Enter Rubi.  The three brothers are knocked on their butts over her.

Rubi is a hot mess and I love that about her!!  LOL  She is on a cruise and gets wasted drunk before falling off the boat. She wakes up and thinks she has had a one night stand with people on her cruise.  She is kinda taken aback when they throw the whole “Mate”, “Queen” and “Life” at her.  But seriously, I love her hard core.

As the story goes and Rubi and her triple Z’s fall into a routine the story throws a huge couple of plot twists like who is Rubi’s dad and who is the new stranger to enter their kingdom.

The story is amazing and seeing all the changes and additions to the cast of characters made my heart so happy.  I absolutely loved the world building Brandy did for the paranormal world.  I cannot wait to see what happens especially after Rubi does the unthinkable not knowing what is appropriate and not.  She is all in for her mates and their kingdom.  She will do all she can to help protect everyone she touches.

All I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time, I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.
I’m an avid reader who turned to writing to combat my depression and anxiety. I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality.
I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth, my heroines demure but with spunk, and my books full of dramatic suspense.

#REVIEW – Firsts (Cape Hill #1) by C.L. Matthews

She’s forbidden.
Too young, too pure, and not mine.
I’ll break all the rules to be with her.
She belongs to me, even if she doesn’t know it yet.

He’s taboo.
Too old, too experienced, and my stepfather.
I’ll cross every line to be with him.
He’s not mine, and never will be.

It’s not about the danger of what’s forbidden,
it’s about the pleasure we get from it.

All consequences be damned.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

I’m a huge fan of the taboo, the forbidden. The whole “I want her/him but I shouldn’t”. It’s delicious and exciting.
We first meet Leia and Sy when she’s nothing more than a mere child. Thirteen to be exact. When they first meet, the tension and attraction is off the charts. It seeped through the pages and hits you right in the pit of your gut. But you know that she’s too young. He’s too old. But it doesn’t stop the attraction there. Leia becomes older. But that age difference will always be there. The attraction grows until neither of them can control their undying need for each other.
The chemistry is hot. Like insanely hot. It starts as a slow flame until the end of the book when it finally bursts into a raging inferno.
This is the first book to a series. There’s secrets, passion, drama, a triangle of sorts and more. If taboo stories are your thing, then this series is definitely for you.
