#Review You and I (Second Chances Book 2) Isobelle Cate

image

synopsis

Serenity wanted to escape her past. Matt needed to finish his mission. Danger insisted on keeping them together.
Everyone deserves a second chance, right?
Wrong.
Serenity Beresford was as mean as they came. A bitch, a whore, a druggie, and any other word that could describe a good for nothing person. She was also a victim. Because of the hurt she caused so many and the sympathy she acquired from so few, she spiralled into believing that she was only good at hurting people, only good for being used and thrown away like a rag doll, only good enough to be a pawn in sick men’s games. When she decides that this vicious cycle of her life needs to stop, the repercussions of escaping hounds her everywhere she goes. Until the evil that snared her in the beginning is destroyed, she has no hope of being free.
Matt Reed is a womanizer, a man who doesn’t believe there’s a woman who can tame his heart. An undercover agent for the DEA, he returns to Windswept ahead of a drug exchange. This will be his last mission before he hands in his badge and works for his family’s conglomerate, but his plan slowly unravels at the hands of another guest in Windswept, the woman with russet colored hair and eyes that seem to peer into his very soul to see the ugliness inside.
Serenity has learned not to fall or trust any man, yet she can’t stop the attraction she feels for Matt. When the evil stalking Serenity follows her to Windswept, she has no choice but to trust him to keep her safe. It will take all of Matt’s cunning to bust the drug ring wide open and protect Serenity in the process, the woman he can’t let go.  The woman who made him believe in second chances.

Received a copy for a honest review

Serenity Beresford, aka Cilla Williams, is someone who really deserves a second chance. Saving her ex’s son from her drug dealer and giving the authorities the means to put him away was her start, changing countries and her looks puts her on a even stronger path.
Matt Reed is undercover, but has done a lot in his past that he’s trying to make right.
These two come together at a very inopportune time, but love doesn’t always come at the best time.
I really feel for Serenity in this book, she is so sure that no one is going to love her after they find out what kind of person that she was and so she tries so hard to stay away from anyone who makes her feel anything. The pain she feels is so real that you can’t help but feel it too.
Matt is knocked off his guard the first time he see Serenity, since a woman is not want he’s looking for but he can’t get her out of his and his focus is not what it should me.
When Serenity’s past and the undercover op that Matt is on come together, it makes for a scary situation!!
These two are each other’s Second Chance and it’s beautiful to see, and it makes it even more so when you know who Serenity was and who she is now.
I excited to see who is next to get their second chance!!

#Review #Contemporary Be Mine (Second Chances Book 1) by Isobelle Cate

image

synopsis

Gracie Sinclair just wants life to return to normal.

Now a widow and picking up the pieces after the death of her husband, she delves into her work, seeking a new normal, until she bumps into a handsome stranger who derails her orderly life, completely.

Luke can’t wait for the week to be over. Having built an engineering company into a multi-million pound enterprise in record time, he feels…empty. Nothing satisfies him anymore, not even having weekenders in his bed. But when he bumps into a woman—literally—on his way out of a bar, realizing she is his last meeting before he goes on holiday, his plan of staying away from relationships takes a nose dive. He wants Gracie Sinclair.

Gracie learned a long time ago how insincere love can be, so when Luke decides to become part of her life, she tosses up every obstacle to dissuade him until he breaks down her walls and makes her realize that her life can only be complete with Luke by her side.

However, something sinister from Luke’s past threatens the happiness they have struggled to find. If he concedes, he will become criminally liable and lose everything.

If he refuses, he loses Gracie’s heart…

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review
Gracie is a widow who had a douche bag for a husband and Luke is a man whore, but that changes for him when they literally run smack into each other and he can’t stop thinking about her, though he doesn’t know her name or anything and even though she has built a walls around her after her shit marriage, they start to shake after their run in.
It’s amazing how fast attraction is for some people!!
The second time they meet, he knows there’s something different about her and it makes him want her more even when she tells him no and that she’s married. For all of his man whoring ways he’s honorable and backs off at that point, still he can’t stop thinking about her and he no longer backs off when he finds out she is no longer married. No matter how much she pushes him away, he just keeps pushing back until she lets him in and they find love within each other.
I love how strong he is for her when his past comes back to haunt them and when he thinks she is going to end them because of it, his plan is to let her have space but he’s not going to give up on them, thankfully it doesn’t come to that though because she knows he was being hurt too.
This story, like the series implies, is all about second chances. Gracie is given a second chance at love and Luke by loving Gracie is given a second chance at having a family.
Yes, like I said attraction is fast for some people, all it takes is a split second meeting to know you have found your someone and for Luke and Gracie that first crash into each other was all they needed to find the someone who would break down walls and make them want to change for the better.

#Review – Neverland Evermore (Never Ever Series Book 1) by Sarah J. Pepper

30520407

 

synopsis

Neverland has a way of breaking people. It corrupts souls. It destroys hope. The evil festering inside it brings out the darkness in our hearts and leaves us worse than dead. No good has ever come from it. Ever.

 

It is where I was born.

 

Therefore, darkness is all I know. Corruption is in my bones. So when I see him, I mean to win his heart and then break him. I mean to lure him to my arms and then destroy him. But it is his intentions and his wicked smile that deter me…at least until a lost soul from my past catches up with us.

 

My world ignites into flames. My love’s sinks to the depths of the sea. We are from two different worlds that overlap for a brief moment in time. But it is that moment which carries me forward. It is that moment in which he lives in the past. It is that moment in which I embrace my true nature and seek vengeance against those responsible for feeding his hand to that godforsaken crocodile.

kellys review

What an incredible story! Where do I even begin?! Pirates, mermaids, Davy Jones’ locker, and Neverland….with a heart aching love story. **sigh** In this story nothing is what you know. Peter Pan is the bad guy and Neverland is a place of entrapment for evil souls. Bell floats into the path of Captain James Hook’s ship where she is pulled on board. Having a woman on board is bad luck but James can’t help himself. From here on out things get really crazy. You are brought right into the present with extreme chaos but the way the author unfolds the story leading up to the present is intricately beautiful. An unlikely relataionship is formed between Bell and James and the journey they go through together will make your heart swell and ache at the same time.

 

“Towering over her, I smirked, “You take me for a fool.” The truth showed in her grin and the spark that flashed in her eyes. “I tend to keep foolish company.” “What do you mean by that?” I questioned. “That I’m trouble and enjoy a flirtatious bout with danger.” she whispered.

 

“But she will attract evil. I’m certain.” I smirked, “Perhaps she is attracted to evil, which is why she found me.” “You’ll be the death of us all,” he snarled.

 

“Mermaids? Immortality? Bell was luring me into a world I never knew and damn it if I wasn’t compelled. Every dark secret about her made me gravitate to her more, but her latest declaration unhinged me in a way that truly startled me. Why? Because it made me crave her more— something I didn’t think was possible. She was the epitome of true power in a beautiful form, yet she somehow kept her humanity, her soul. She was a glorious creature, a tigress who was wildly attracted to immoral men— men like me. While it wasn’t unusual for dames to be fascinated by bad boys, I wanted to know her exact reasons why. I wanted to know every reason why. I needed to know all of her secrets.”

 

There is so much trouble to find in this story. So alluring, adventurous, and beautiful. I cannot wait to continue the adventures!

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He refuses to fall in love.
He was born alone and he will die alone. Or, at least he thought so until now.
Vice-One is all he knows. His squad. His brothers. The men he spends every day protecting. He is empty and only one person can fill this void. This darkness.
Meanwhile, Genevieve Gold makes it clear he should stay away when she is everything he craves.

She is lost.
Her heart has been ripped out; stomped on…crushed into tiny pieces, leaving only a gaping hole behind.
King’s Harlots is all she has. Her club. Her sisters. Her life. But something is missing until he shows up.
Angel Rodriguez is everything she hates but everything she needs.

Putting differences aside, they will work together to bring down a malevolent force threatening to rip them apart…

Twinsie Deb’s Review

Grit by J.M. Walker
Angel & Jay
MC & MILITARY – PERFECT
4.5 STARS

This is a story full of emotion, angst, and of course tons of grit. There are multiple stories going on with one common denominator, find out who’s taking the girls! It has a plethora of suspense, a surplus of humor, and ample sex appeal.

Angel is a Vice-One team leader and if he’s not on an assignment with his “brothers”, you can find him with his construction company helping to repair the King’s Harlot’s MC building. He’s all alpha, he’s dark and domineering, and he’s after Jay. Lucky girl! I found him easy to love right away. He’s a good guy with a huge heart. It’s just took the right girl to open it up.

Jay (Genevieve) is the president of King’s Harlots all woman Motorcycle Club. Wow, incredibly impressive. I liked her, but thought she could have been a smidge more solid. Don’t get me wrong, I think she was perfect in most everything, I just wish she would have swore more, or punched someone or something. I guess I’m a dork, but I just love those crazy fighter types! She’s dealing with a mountain a shit. Her missing sister, disappearing girls, and attacks on her MC. Now, add a holy hotness Military man and her sanity just went out the window.

The supporting characters cast isn’t too big. Those that bare mentioning would be Max and Dale. I found Max to be a pretty excellent friend. She seems to be dealing with some shit of her own (*cough, Dale) and could use her own book (eh em, JM). Dale on the other hand, he’s kind of a dick, but a dick you want to know more about… I suppose he could make a cameo in Max’s book….lol!

So to wrap this up. The storyline is excellent… MC and Military… great combo! The pacing is good, the dialogue flows, and the tension leading up to the climax was just right. Can’t wait to see the detonation that will be Max vs. Dale.

 Q437B was ready to die for the Second Revolution. Then she entered the Muertre…
Q and B expected death when the Elders ordered their execution. What they discover instead changes everything they thought they knew about their world. Saved by the mercy of the Elders, they awaken in the Vrai Domicile, a mysterious place hidden below the Sixth Domicile housing hundreds of former rebels.

Now Q and B must fight to survive once more, forced to forge new alliances with strangers who promise nothing is as it seems. But surviving comes with a choice – follow the Elders and quash the Revolution, or defy them and free the people, putting B’s and Grandmother’s lives at risk.

about the author

image

Courtney’s love for writing dates back to short stories on a word processor (What?? Word processor with floppy disks?). Oh yes, she literally had a card filing case full of floppy disks. Now she continues her writing (she upgraded to a laptop) while living in Southern Ohio with her husband and son.

Although Courtney has always lived in Ohio, sometimes closer to the Ohio River and sometimes further away, she dreams of the mountain ranges out west and the sandy Florida beaches. She married the man of her dreams and had a beautiful blond haired blue eyed boy. Before she sought publication for her first book The Sixth Domicile: Book One of the Domicile Series, Courtney worked as a social worker in a mental health agency where she counseled and provided therapy. After she left full time work, she taught social sciences at a local university and began a photography business. The “extra” time gave her the ability to focus on writing again.

Courtney’s background in social work fuels the grit in her stories. When Courtney isn’t writing her next book, you can find her doing homework (drag) and sipping flavored coffee, reading young adult and new adult books (because social work text books are only so interesting), or daydreaming about all the future beach houses she intends to buy.

#Cover Reveal!! Love Restored (A Gallagher Brothers Novel) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The first book in a Montgomery Ink spin-off series, LOVE RESTORED by Carrie Ann Ryan, was announced on USA Today HEA yesterday, and we’re so thrilled to bring you a first look at LOVE RESTORED today!

 

Love RestoredAbout LOVE RESTORED

In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…

Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.

Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.

Get a sneak peek at LOVE RESTORED:

Graham Gallagher had never craved a cigarette as much as he did just then. It didn’t matter that he’d quit smoking over fifteen years ago cold turkey and hadn’t picked one up since then. He just wanted a damn smoke.

Scratch that.

He wanted a fucking cigarette, a beer, and a willing woman underneath him as he fucked her until they were both spent.

And not necessarily in that order.

Not that he’d get any of that any time soon. Between this new job, the old one they hadn’t fully completed yet, and the rest of the crap in his life, he wasn’t sure he’d even have time for a beer.

And considering it had been a long six months since he’d had a woman under him, he was pretty sure he wouldn’t be getting laid any time soon. Him and his right hand had a perfectly nice relationship for now and when he got downright dangerous, he got to know his left.

Jesus, he needed coffee or something at this point if he was thinking about how his left hand would be something different in his life.

He ran a hand through his dark hair and grimaced as he caught some tangles as he pulled it out of the rubber band. He wasn’t sure he’d brushed it that morning, instead just throwing it up in a tie at the back of his head as soon as he’d gotten out of the shower. At least he’d showered, he thought. Considering he’d slept for shit the night before, a shower after sweat-slick dreams had been the only recourse. He quickly ran his hand through it a few more times, getting out most of the rat’s nest and pulled it back up before the owner of their new project showed up and called him a heathen.

Graham sighed, sliding his hand over his beard to straighten it out. Since it had grown past his chin and almost touched his chest if he lowered his head just right, he already looked the part of a heathen to some. Add in the ink covering his body and the piercings only those in his bed could see, he didn’t fit the ideal image of a business man that someone of this caliber would want to work with.

And that was just find with him.

#REVIEW Ink Enduring (Montgomery Ink 5) by Carrie Ann Ryan #MONTGOMERYINK

image

image

synopsis

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a forbidden love between three friends and a past that they can’t escape.

Jake Gallagher knew from the moment he saw Maya that she was the one for him—it had the same breath-taking intensity as when he’d first set eyes on Border. Only life never turns out the way one plans, and now he’s falling for someone else…or at least he thinks he is.

Maya Montgomery never should have looked past the friendship she already had. Now that she has, she can’t stop thinking about Jake and what he means to her. When a mysterious stranger from Jake’s past shows up at their door, she’s forced to admit that if she doesn’t take the risk of a lifetime, she’ll regret it for the rest of her days.

Border Gentry walked away without a second glance once because of what could happen if he let go, but now he’s back and ready to see what he’s missed. He’s been on the road a long time and has seen things no man should ever see, yet once he rediscovers the broody Jake and meets the inked and fierce Maya, they’re like a balm to his soul and he realizes what path his future should take.

It will take more than sizzling chemistry and a heat that never dies for the three of them to overcome their pasts. And when someone from the outside wants to stand in their way, it’s not only their hearts on the line…but also their lives.

kristis review

Received a copy of this book for my honest review

I have been waiting for Maya’s book forever it seems and I know I say this with every Montgomery Ink book, but I can’t help it they are that good!!!
I have loved Maya’s character since she was first introduced, take charge women who does what she loves and doesn’t take crap from anyone, what’s not to love. However I’ve also been waiting for this strong woman to show her vulnerable side and I’ve finally got it. Seeing her unsure and angsty is great, it shows that this superwoman is human too.
With Maya we’ve also seen her Best Friend Jake around. Hot, artistic, inked and bearded. Hmmm, soooo yummy!! He’s been by Maya’s side through thick and thin. The adopted Gallagher in the Montgomery family.
Now we are introduced to Border. Holy heck Border!! Big, protective, Border. He left town when he and Jake were young, even though they loved each other, because he thought he was protecting him. Now he’s back for Jake and he wants to know all about Maya!!
I feel so bad for Jake’s girl friend Holly, she was introduced in the last book, because she realizes that though she wants to love Jake they don’t belong together because Jake loves Maya and even though she hasn’t said or even shown it she loves him too. Holly needs a Montgomery or a Gallagher of her own!! Hint, hint!!
I love when Ryan writes about a triad, she does it so beautifully. You can really see the three separate couples becoming one. Jake and Maya, Jake and Border, and finally Border and Maya. They all have to find their way around the new dynamic of what each of their relationships are and also become one. They do it so well, not by hot heavy bedroom action, hello that helps, but by taking it day by day.
Jake realizing he’s not the brother looking in from the outside with his family is great and HELLO Gallagher Brothers, I can not wait to read more of each of you!!
Maya and Jake finally getting together after all these years makes all their friends say “About time!” Border coming in doesn’t take anything away from Maya and Jake story, it’s like he’s is what was missing; to quote Maya “He completes us”.
End in the the triad learns that for a future together they have to do more communicating and that is what any relationship needs to be able to go the distance.
I know I said it at beginning of this review but I’m going to say it again, I can not wait for Alex’s book!!
Oh, and more of those yummy Gallagher brothers!!!

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Soulless by T.M. Frazier
Bear & Thia
THIS STORY IS STILL KILLING, BUT EASING UP A BIT FOR NOW
5 STARS

So, guess what? This book fucking rocked! That’s what! So much is going on. So many new things learned about both our lead characters and supporting ones for that matter. Emotions up the waazoo, love and hate flowing side by side, and shit that’ll make you go hmmmm!

Bear is such a dick, but man I can’t help but love that jerkface! He goes above and beyond where his friends and especially Ti are concerned, but holy freaking hell, does he really have to scare the ever-loving shit outta me in the process? He’s been dealt a bad hand in most everything he does, but who’s to say what game is being played? Maybe he does have a good hand after all. He makes the most of all the bad situations he’s in. He loves fiercely and he’s brutally honest to a fault.

Ti is unexpectedly more equipped to deal with the life she’s been given. The life she hopes to lead with Bear. She’s hilarious, she’s strong, and she’s more than ready to get on with killing if that’s what needs being done. She’s meets some interesting people on her journey and takes them in stride, but never forgets who she is, where she came from, or where she’s headed. I love this little pink headed monkey!

The supporting character cast is fairly large. Let’s see, we have King, Ray, and their crazy kids. I love knowing that King was always there every step of the way with Bear. Grace was wonderful as always. I wouldn’t mind having her for my “adopted” Momma any day. Now this Rage chick, holy hell! I need more of her. I need more quirkiness and more of her oddball ways. I love that tiny psycho germaphobe. Barbarian Barbie! My fave fer sure.

So, if you picked this up expecting hearts and flowers, then you’ll be truly let down, unless you like bloody hearts and wilted flowers… lol. I myself found it so persuasive that I could not put it down. I hung on every word and made Bear and Ti’s life my main concern for a short time. The pacing is superb and the storyline outstanding. The tension created throughout this tale was just right, but that climax, jaysus fekking christ TM, you trying to kill me? Loved it!

#REVIEW – Fallen Fourth Down (Fallen Crest Series, Book 4) by Tijan

41xw1X6j3SL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_

My mother tried to destroy me. She doesn’t exist to me anymore and my father, the one who raised me and the biological one, are both works in progress. The only two people that I can trust are Mason and Logan, and they’re the two people who I could lose. It won’t happen. I won’t let it. No matter the truth, no matter who loves me, I won’t let anything or anyone come between us.
They’re my world. They’re my life.
They’re my family.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Man oh man. I swear Tijan will have a permanent hold on my heart for the rest of my life. I am so in love with these characters I feel like they are a part of me. I want to hold them and comfort them. I want to be the big sister and the family they never had. Gah! I just love them oh so much. Okay, review time. Enough gushing.

Sam…oh Samantha. I swear this heroine, although so young, has a firm grip on my soul. Okay, back to gushing. Sam is strong and Mason? Logan? Geesh. These three together can rule the freaking world!

At the end of book three, there is a BIG secret that gets revealed. Well obviously we the reader know the secret cause we just know Logan and how he is. Sam keeps said secret to herself all through book 4 and man, my heart. At the end of this book, I tried reading faster so I could find out what happened.

So many issues for such young people. I love these characters. I can’t get enough of them. If Tijan decided to write them for the rest of her career, I would be a very happy reader.

Lost and in danger, he enlists Carlie, Gran, and their magic to find the warlock who sentenced him to a hundred years of darkness. The hunter becomes the hunted when Carlie’s spells awaken a cold-blooded killer intent on adding another pelt to their gruesome collection: hers.

But the killer has never been to Halfway before, where there are three unbreakable rules:

1. Don’t complain about the diner’s waffles.

2. Don’t break the laws of magic.

3. Never threaten a witch on her home turf.

Can Carlie solve an ancient crime, defeat a ruthless killer and save the love of her life from a vampire’s curse without burning the waffles?

Come hunt with Carlie, and answer the call of the wild.

Oh my stars! Nothing halfway about this series! The Halfway Witchy series is one of a kind!

As if Carlie’s life isn’t already crazy enough there are strange happenings occuring in Halfway. And guess what? Carlie is here to protect, no matter the cost. Exit is a man who has been under an ancient curse who has recently woken up. Carlie and Gran are trying to help Exit, but Exit is not the only newcomer to Halfway. Warlocks and hunters are in the area and it’s unacceptable. We follow Carlie and how she is handling the fact that Wulfric is no longer hers but we also follow Exit and learn of his life and curse. It’s perfect for the book and Exit is a great charater to continue in this story. Crazy situations and emotions can cause people to do some incredible and insane things for the people we care about…and for ourselves. And this fits Carlie to a T.

“I did my best to look friendly and incapable of turning someone into a toad. Flowers were good. Toads, not so much. I probably could if I had time to write the spell, but that wasn’t the point, perception being reality and all that.”

“Gran and I are more than wardens and less than saints.”

“I wanted blood, but we needed justice. The two were diverging paths for me, and the only question was whether or not I could find the strength to hold back when the moment of truth came. As I began to walk deeper into the woods, I had no answers, only hope.”

***Carlie’s and Exit’s journey is a wild ride and is nothing short of exciting. Loving this series and can’t wait for more!***
