Twinsie Melinda 2017 Top 10 reads

Looking back on 2017 I was able to read over 100 books. I did branch out out of my comfort zone and read a few books that were on the dark/suspenseful side for me. I have to say I did enjoy them. I also stuck to authors that I love and they they branched out in there writing giving me something different from their norm and they turned out great.  It was hard to pick just 10 favorites but this is my 2017 top 10 reads in no particular order.
Bottom Line: Nomad Bikers (Devil's Due MC Book 6) by [Camaron, Chelsea]

Bottom Line: Nomad Bikers (Devil’s Due MC #6)
by: Chelsea Camaron

Beaten at the hands of peers he knows judgement. The domino effect of one person’s crime going unpunished never heals.

He’s no saint.

Mitchell “Trapper” Gates fears nothing. He begs for death and relishes life on the edge.

He’s also not afraid to call himself a sinner.

Trapper knows what it is to be violated and what it feels like to deliver a death blow. He knows love and he knows pain.

However, one person knows his every secret.

When Avery has waited long enough, can Trapper see beyond their past and into their future? Or is he too late?

Love, hate, anger, and passion collide as the time comes and the devil demands his due.

Each book in the Devil’s Due MC is a stand alone, full length, second chance romance. Contains adult content, language, and violence not suitable for readers under the age of 18. This is not an exact depiction of life in a motorcycle club, but rather a work of fiction meant to entertain. (

Charade (A Fake Fiancee Romance)
By: Jade C. Jamison

No kissing necessary. Definitely no sex required.

Erica Larson had dreamed of being a lawyer for as long as she could remember, but the job at Ford & Associates—a family business run by a father and his three sons—is sheer drudgery. Erica is ready to pull up stakes and move home—until devilishly handsome but arrogant Brock Ford, the youngest son, makes her an offer she can’t refuse.

Play his fiancée for a month…maybe two, because his future with the firm depends on deception.
Just attend a function here and there.
No kissing and definitely no sleeping together.

Well…maybe one kiss.
Or two.

And, before Erica knows it, she’s doubting if she can distinguish between fiction and reality, because her heart can no longer tell the difference. Can she stop herself from becoming a victim of his charm before it’s too late?

Trust doesn’t come easy for Leona. Tabloids and distance may send her running. How far is Luke willing to chase?

Rock Me (Jaded Ivory #1)
By: Rebecca Brooke

I am not a victim.

At least that’s what I wanted to believe. What I wanted the world to see. Five years of trying to find the girl I hid from the world.

I wouldn’t let the bullies win. I couldn’t.

What was I supposed to do when he walked into the building? He’d made my high school years a living hell.

But, he doesn’t recognize me.

How do I prove he didn’t break me? Simple, take him home for a one-night stand.

At least it sounded like a good idea at the time.

The Pact
By: Karina Halle

It all started with a pinky swear…

Linden McGregor is tall, rugged, and gunslinger handsome; a helicopter pilot with a Scottish brogue and charm to spare. He’s also one of Stephanie Robson’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as she’s known him.

But some relationships can’t be boxed, can’t be classified, can’t be tamed.

Back in their mid-twenties and tired of the competitive hit-or-miss dating scene of San Francisco, Steph and Linden made a pact to marry each other if neither one of them are in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty.

It sounds like fun and games but as the years to thirty tick past and lovers come and go out of their lives, the pact becomes larger than life.
Sex is inevitable. Friendships are tested. Hearts are on the line.

The pact is about to change everything.
