MM March Madness – MARCH 2 – Michele Shriver

03-02 - Michele Shriver

MM MARCH MADNESS!!

March 2

Twinsie Talk is proud to present the 3rd Annual MM March Madness – a month to focus on the M/M, F/F, M/M/F, M/F/M authors. We love these books and want to share it with the rest of the world. Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.

Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3

Today is devoted to Michele Shriver

author bio

Michele Shriver is a National and International best-selling author of women’s fiction and contemporary romance. Her books feature flawed-but-likeable characters in real-life settings. She’s not afraid to break the rules, but never stops believing in happily ever after. Michele counts among her favorite things a good glass of wine, a hockey game, and a sweet and sexy book boyfriend, not necessarily in that order.

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I collect frogs. Not real ones, but every other kind imaginable.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

I like series, and I write a series of novellas featuring hockey players. They can be challenging, because you have to pay close attention to detail and keep track of events from one book to the next, but the real challenge for me seems to be to write a stand alone book. Even if I’m not writing in a series, I seem to keep creating spin-offs.

Where do you do most of your writing?

On my couch using my laptop, usually with some sporting event on the TV in the background.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

Right now, I seem to always be under deadline, so I don’t read as much as I’d like. I always love Kristin Hannah, though. I want to write like her when I grow up.

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

I hope it’s growing! I never set out to be a FF writer, but I’ve always been a proponent of equality, and my first novel (After Ten) featured four college friends who meet up again for a ten year reunion. One of the characters is a lesbian who kept her sexuality a secret from her friends in school. I loved telling her story, and that of her wife… and kept telling in two other novels. It’s that whole inability to write a standalone thing I mentioned.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

I’m constantly surprised by this business, especially how often and how fast it changes, especially when it comes to what forms of promotion/advertising are most effective.

What are you working on now?

I’m in edits on book 4 of my Men of the Ice series, releasing March 1, and also have an upcoming box set of country-music themed romances.

Love Notes:

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

I’m pretty boring. I’m probably just at home watching a hockey game or college football game while I try to get some writing in.

Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?

Ironically, both happened at the same time, the same event. Last fall, I was part of the Christmas Pets & Kisses boxed set with fifteen other authors, and we had an amazing release week, and I achieved my highest bestseller ranking on Amazon and highest author rank. We thought it meant big things for us… but when the USA Today bestseller list came out, we found out we didn’t make it (even though we know for a fact that we sold more copies that week than one of the sets that made the list- explain that one to me).

It was disappointing, but made me more motivated to keep working hard to achieve that goal.

I purchased this book off Amazon.

Who doesn’t love a good zombie story??  Well I don’t understand people who don’t anyway.

This is a really short read.  I sat and in little over an hour, got this novella read.  I think it would be a great book that could have been expanded on or even continued on but I did enjoy the quick, paced story.

The long of the short of it……there was a major Cholera outbreak that caused this zombie epidemic.  There are several staged of the “virus” but once infected you will pretty much suffer a long and awful death.  The book starts with Lucy holding out hope that she can cure her grandfather who has the virus.  She is being protected by military guy/her BFF from childhood. Who is she being protected from?  Her evil dad.  He has a crazy scheme for world domination.

When the duo escape they are hoping Lucy can find a cure still.  Then to complicate matters, Lucy’s on-again, off-again love interest Nat shows up.  We learn that her dad infected him with the zombie virus….ON PURPOSE…Remember world domination scheme previously mentioned?????  So Lucy’s heart is going in many different directions.  She has lost her beloved grandfather and now may lose her love Nat!  All the while she is looking for a cure when her father shows up and all kinds of bad starts to happen!!!

about the author

Dawn Brower holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Master of Arts in Education, and is currently working on a Master of Arts in Liberal Arts with concentrations in Literature, History, and Sociology. She works as a substitute teacher and enjoys the flexibility it gives her to concentrate on her other endeavors.

Growing up she was the only girl out of six children. She is a single mother of two teenage boys; there is never a dull moment in her life. Reading books is her favorite hobby. There is nothing like a nice glass of wine and a good book to relax with at the end of the day.

There are always stories inside her head; she just never thought she could make them come to life. That creativity has finally found an outlet.

author bio

A.D. Ellis spends the majority of her days loving and wrangling two school-aged children, a husband, and a Yorkie with a stubborn streak a mile wide before heading to the inner city of Indiana to teach a challenging group of alternative education students in grades third through sixth. Most days she hits the gym after school in hopes of running and lifting away the stress and headaches of the day before picking up her children and squeezing a whole day’s worth of loving and living into the too-short hours before bed. It’s no wonder Ms. Ellis lives for the slower, easier days she gets to enjoy on breaks from school.
Growing up in a small farming town in southern Indiana, A.D. is grateful to her mother for passing along the love of reading. With her nose constantly stuck in a book, Ms. Ellis became accustomed to friends and acquaintances snickering and shaking their heads at her love of reading.
A.D. never dreamed of being anything but a teacher, although there are certain times of the year when she laments her career choice. Ms. Ellis had a story idea floating in her head for about a year. After persistent prodding from a friend, A.D. put pen to paper and began writing her first story in October 2013. From that moment on, she was hooked. Taking the people and stories from her head and sharing them with readers is a scary, exhausting, rewarding, and fulfilling experience which A.D. plans to continue until there are no more stories banging around in her mind.
A.D. Ellis’ work can be found on both iBooks and Amazon. Please contact her on Facebook, Twitter, or her website.

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I’m terrified of deep, dark water (think ocean or lake where I can’t touch).  I’m addicted to M/M stories right now.
I am totally obsessed with tea and want to drink it all the time and try different types.
I was born on Easter Sunday, but my birthday has NEVER been on Easter again.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

I have two series out, and one more I’m working on right now. But the series I write are not continuation stories, they are stories involving different characters. Each book COULD be read as a standalone.

I don’t like cliffhangers unless all the books are already available, so I don’t write cliffies. My series started getting harder to write because of all the people involved. I made a family tree for my readers but it was just as much for myself so I wouldn’t get people confused!

Where do you do most of your writing?

99% of my writing is done in my bedroom at my little office desk area.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

Based on my obsession with M/M stories, it’s safe to say that I’m reading something sexy with two hot guys.

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

I do feel the M/M genre is growing. I see more and more stories out there each day. I think it’s growing because it’s more and more accepted. Also because readers have realized how much they enjoy the M/M genre, so there’s more demand for stories in this genre.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

How much fun it is. How emotional it is. And how much I avoid writing bad/rough/emotional scenes. When I know a rough scene is coming it’s normal for me to balk and avoid it for 1-2 weeks before I finally just suck it up and write it.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on a M/M 3-book series titled Something About Him. There will be three books (standalones). The series will start with Bryan & Jase: The Beginning (this is a short story). Then the books will continue with Bryan & Jase, Nick & Brody, and Barrett & Ivan.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

If the kids are home, we are usually just hanging out while the kids play, grabbing a bite to eat, maybe getting groceries. Don’t be jealous, we live a wild life.
If the kids aren’t home (this doesn’t happen often, they are only 10 and 8), my husband and I will usually go out to eat and maybe watch a movie. If we have time we may stroll through the mall or Kohls. Again, try to rein in your jealousy. 🙂

Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?

Highest? My book, Loving Josie, won a bronze medal in the romance category in the Readers’ Favorite 2015 International Book  Awards.
Lowest? I don’t know that I have lowest. I mean, bad reviews here and there stink. And not being able to find that perfect promo secret makes it hard, but I really don’t feel like I’ve had a LOW in my career. It’s all been a great learning experience and tons of fun to meet and interact with readers and other authors.

Sawyer Review

 angies review

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

I am a fan of MM…not gonna deny it, so when I see this sign up for the book I jumped. I also wanted to read something from this author because a lot of my friends read and enjoy her stuff.

This book is a spin off from another Torey Hope Series. I haven’t read any of it or the book before (Decker) that is Sawyers brother. I didn’t feel like I missed anything but I do I believe I might have gotten more enjoyment out of reading Decker’s book too. But again, you don’t need to read it to understand the story and plot.

This book is a wonderful look at the struggles that Gay and Lesbian teens/young adults face when dealing with telling everyone they are out. It lets you in on the hurt they feel when their loves ones banish them or say hurtful words when they finally do admit their true feelings.

Sawyer has known he was gay but only let his best friend Katie in on it when he was a teen. We see him come to terms with it and flashback to when he told his closest family and friends. We see him struggle with his identity in college. Now he is an adult and is looking…looking…looking. He can’t seem to find THE ONE.
When Sawyer and Luke meet all bets are off. Luke will not allow himself to feel what he feels and Sawyer will not let him ignore the feelings. The men have a lot to overcome between Sawyer’s family who doesn’t support him and Luke’s traumatic past. I liked the story but at times felt it was a little bit jumpy from scene to scene. I did like the resolution at the end and hearing about Luke’s life was sooo sad. I would love to go back and read Decker plus I really hope that Adam might get a book. He is sooo funny!

synopsis

From here on out, the Nicki Sosebee series is getting darker.

BUCKLE UP.

Like a dog with a bone, Nicki cannot help but continue to pursue realtor-turned-politician Gina McCafferty as the woman persists in making her play for Winchester’s open City Council seat. But Nicki is learning over and over again that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to her fair city. Meanwhile, her personal life is topsy-turvy, and a tattoo artist named Hunter makes Nicki’s life a living hell.

Alliances are tested. Lines are drawn. And events are set in motion that will play out in deadly ways…

angies review

 

 

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

*Big breathe in and out*  OK…way intense reads…….

*Big Smirk*  NICKI IS BACK!!

*shakes what my momma gave me because this series is amazing*

OMG Do I love her and man have I freaking missed her!!!  I think what I love best about Nicki, and I have probably said this before, is she is totally a chick I wanna be friends with.  She is so like me at times with the big doe eyes and believing people are good but then realizing that they are NOT good.  Sean is her true love and sounding board who really does a lot to help her with her latest and continued mystery.

Nicki is still investigation the police and politicians from the last book.  Sean has meet up with some new guys who are giving him some inside information about the corruption she is investigation.    She is dealing with the paper consolidating and her beloved Napoli’s falling even further down into a bankrupt business. Nicki is having a lot of personal soul searching with her and Sean plus all her other childhood friends are making changes to their lives…some good changes and some not good changes *tear*

I don’t want to go into the plot too much because there would be definite spoilers but holy the hell the introduction of Hunter had my heart racing for MANY different reasons at different times in the book.  He is the right guy at the right time or is he too good to be true?????   Seeing Jesse again made my tummy flutter but every scene with Sean made me Swoon and Sigh…yep #TeamSean all the way!!!

excerpt

“Something wrong?”

Nicki realized she was gritting her teeth—not making noise or anything, but definitely clenching them so that her jaw was tense. “Oh, sorry.” She swallowed. “Maybe today I should just get my nose pierced.”

What? She’d lost her mind.

No, this was good. Change was good. Especially now.

Hunter nodded. “That’s not a bad idea. You’ve got a good nose for it.” She snorted then and peals of laughter flowed from her mouth. He gave her a puzzled look.

“Sorry. I write part-time for the Tribune, and my boss has told me I have a nose for news.” She laughed again and he forced a smile. “Sorry. I really have had way too much to drink. Maybe I should leave.”

He touched her forearm. “No, you’re fine. You’re just a bit giddy, and that might be due to a little adrenaline flowing through your veins.”

“Adrenaline?”

“Yeah, as you prep yourself for a little pain.”

“Oh…how bad does that hurt?”

He flipped his hand, palm up, grinning and shrugging, and then he shook his head. “I’ve never had my nose pierced, so I don’t know. Piercing itself, though? Kind of depends on where you’re getting pierced and what your pain tolerance is. I had a shitload to drink before I got pierced, and it didn’t hurt at all.”

“You have a piercing? Where?” Nicki couldn’t see any holes anywhere—not on his ears or face. Maybe his nipples?

He grinned again, standing and extending his hand to her. “A guy’s gotta have a few secrets. Come on. Let’s go get you prepped.”

angies-review

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

OMG was I so excited to read Kendrick.  He always cracked me up with his insane and over the top wild behavior with the ones he loved.  The last couple books we have seen him struggle and start to spiral downward but had no clue WHY!!

Kendrick, at his lowest of lows, finds the light of his life.  He certainly didn’t know a night with Jay and her boyfriend Tony would change his world but it does.  He sees something about her and needs to know more.  Jay is not about the get close.  When Tony has to leave she tells Kendrick they can keep having “fun” but no strings.

Kendrick finally comes clean about what has been nagging at him for the past 10 years to his amazing family. When he finally comes clean he also gets a chance at a new life with Jay because she spills an epic secret to him about how her life is going to be changing.

Kendrick and Jay jump in head first into a relationship.  They both fall head over heels in love but then Kendrick has an accident and Jay is a mess.  My favorite scene in the whole book is when Kendrick is drugged up at the hospital and she spills her entire deep dark past to him.  When she admits her true feelings to him….my heart beat a bit faster.

Kendrick makes some epic mistakes but Jay and his family are there to make him get his head outta his butt plus make things right before he lose Jay and any possible future he may have with her.

Ride with Me by Chelsea Camaron

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

*Fluffs my hair and applies lip gloss* Oh yes ladies Rex is backkk!!  My baby daddy is yummier then ever!!  He and Lux are so happy but looking to set their wedding date.  Of course Lux wants a DELUXE wedding and of course Rex will make it happen for his ol’ lady.

When Rex is called away on a transport, Lux starts to think. She just wants her ol’mans name.  She spends some 1 on 1 time with Axel and realizes that she wants to complete this family.  She begins to plan with Sass, Doll and Tessie.  They are all going to make this weeding happen Hellions Style.  But when Rex goes quiet for a few days. Lux freaks out that her man will not be home to complete her dream……

Rex loves Lux and would give her anything.  He will lay the word at her feet and if New York is what she want, then that is what she will get.  He has decided when he returns home she will get the wedding she wants and deserves.  A bump in the transport road has him returning home late and to a surprise.  Caroline had decided to claim her man as her husband!!

The feels were there in this book.  Roundman telling Lux she is his other daughter.  Tripp talking about the love that Doll and he have.  He teaches Rex about the “tangibles” of loving someone.  It was one of the best scenes in the book.  It warmed my heart.  If you haven’t read this series, I highly suggest you give them a try but remember that REX IS MINE!

Ava Cuvay

About the Author

I reside in central Indiana with a hubby who makes me laugh, kiddoes who are growing up way too quickly, and two precocious kittens who like to use me as a scratching post. I enjoy the world of wine & spirits, amusement park thrill rides, and laughing at my own foibles. I believe life is too short to surround yourself with negative people, Han Solo shot first, and the Holy Trinity of food is bacon, champagne, and chocolate. I write hot Sci-Fi romance… Think “Star Wars” meets “Firefly,” with more sex and no Jar-Jar Binks.

When and Why did you start to write?

I’ve kind of always written, though the three-ring binder with my fledgling attempts during middle and high school has for some odd reason *cough*cough* been lost. While on a milestone birthday trip to Las Vegas, I made the off-handed (and poorly-educated) comment that I could write a romance novel. It might have been the margaritas talking, but my friend concurred, and I spent the next few years giving it my best effort… which turned out to be really awful! But with the generous help from my fellow Indiana RWA writer peeps, I’ve learned a thing or two or million, and will soon to publish my first book!

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

There have been times in my life when I have simply read whatever fell into my hands. Or had a pretty cover. Now that I’m trying to write my own books, I focus my reading on local writers and my fellow Romance Writer friends… There is some really awesome stuff out there by these writers, and I wish I had more time to read! Off the cuff, I’ll name Jillian Jacobs, TC Winters, Anya Breton, Donya Lynne, Cheryl Brooks, and Nan Reinhardt… it’s a wide range of romance genres, but I’ve read them and have enjoyed them all!

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

How much editing sucks. The first draft is the easiest and the most fulfilling, because it’s a honeymoon stage where writer and the story love each other. But once a writer has to take a long, hard, critical look at the story, and nit-pick it to death… well, it’s disheartening to say the least. Fortunately in this creative process (as with our genre), there is ultimately a happy ending. By contrast, the most wonderful part is how supportive authors are with each other… This is a game we want EVERYONE to win (and not just get a participation trophy)!

What are you working on now?

I’m a couple short months (maybe less) away from publishing my first book, “His Precious Cargo.” Which is sooooooo exciting!! At the same time, I’m editing my second book (see above for how I feel about editing 😉 That book won the RWA FF&P chapter’s On the Far Side contest for unpublished writers, which is awesome beyond imagining, and I’m hoping it will be even better by publication date.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

Total Pantser. I have a very large backside and can pull all kinds of stories and characters out of it.

Blurb:

Demons. Regrets. Absolution.

Luke has lived on the wrong side of the law since he was seventeen. His hands are stained and his soul is black, but the worst sin he’s committed is falling in love with his brother’s girl. Then he met her. Addy Monroe is pure, innocent and stubborn as an ox. Even though he doesn’t deserve her, Luke will stop at nothing to have her. But just when happiness is within his grasp fate rips her away, reminding him once again that there is no absolution for sinners. Will Luke be able to let color fill his blackened soul?

From the first time Addy saw Luke Colloway over ten years ago she wanted him. Addy has been attracted to rough, crude, inked bad boys with a bike planted securely between their thighs and wicked promises falling from their lips her entire life. Every one of them has let her down. Every one of them has broken her heart. Every one of them has put her second. She’s never going to let that happen again. When Luke promises her a future, will Addy let him in only to have her heart broken again?

Book 3 in a 4 book series. Each book features a different brother and each can be read as a STANDALONE. To get the full Colloway Brother experience, however, it’s most enjoyable to read in order.

***Mature readers only, 18+. Features alpha men with foul language and penchant for hot sex.

About the Author:

I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out, I’m a raving bitch. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

#WOTR – Broken Love – Evan Grace

wotr-attendingauthor
Title: Broken Love
Series: Love Stings #1
Author: Evan Grace 
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 23, 2016 
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
As a young woman, Abby Carmichael had it all—until the night a stranger tore it away…

A year and half after the brutal sexual assault, Abby is finally starting to feel like her old self. Teaching dance classes with enthusiastic kids is just the kind of job she needs—far away from probing eyes or vicious intentions of the opposite sex. When she connects with one of her students, Natalie, it isn’t long until she meets her father, Deputy Ben James.
Ben James is just a regular guy, working to make a life for himself and his daughter…

That’s what Abby tells herself when her sudden attraction for Ben catches her off guard. Abby has been steering clear of men for obvious reasons, and the idea of wanting that kind of relationship is more terrifying than intriguing. But with his doe-eyed daughter tugging at her dance uniform, Ben takes notice.
He’s ready for love, but does her past hold too many secrets? 

After the assault, Abby coped by using heavy medication and fell into an ugly chain of one-night stands. But now that she’s out of rehab and finally on the right track, it’s only a matter of time before Ben finds out.

Will Abby be the true love Ben has always wanted? Or is she a tangled challenge, leading to yet another…

Broken Love?

A Midwesterner and self-proclaimed nerd, Evan has been an avid reader most of her life, but five years ago got bit by the writing bug, and it quickly became her addiction, passion and therapy. When the voices in her head give it a rest, she can always be found with her e-reader in her hand. Some of her favorites include, Shayla Black, Jaci Burton, Madeline Sheehan and Jamie Mcguire. Evan finds a lot of her inspiration in music, so if you see her wearing her headphones you know she means business and is in the zone.
