#WOTR19 #NewRelease #RH #Trilogy #FinalBook – Reclaiming Kendall, White Trash Trilogy Book #3 by Brandy Slaven


Reclaiming Kendall (White Trash Trilogy, #3)


Goodreads

Amazon

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

I fell in love with Mav, Teagan, Grant and Lucas thanks to my friend Mary introducing me to this hella good world.  Kendall is one tough chick who will NOT be what the expectation is for her….white trash continuing the cycle in the trailer park.  We have seen her fight and scratch her way out and when she meets the Quad it all falls in place for her.  Her men, now husbands, have done everything to ensure their love will endure.

We have seen the 5 grow from high school to college and now we see them all taking the final plunge into marriage.  We know the struggles will not be over so quickly given their unusual “family” dynamic BUT they wont give up any part of the group or sacrifice their love for Kendall.

When the story starts we see the marriage and honeymoon….damn the breakfast scene…holy hot shower after is allllll I gotta say!!!  WOWZER!!  Brandy I will never look at pancakes and maple syrup the same way and neither with the other guys!!!

From the honeymoon we see them living their lives.  We see the daily routines and trying to make time for everyone.  I loved how each couple got private time but they also remained grounded in their family time and dynamic.

We see Kendall begin to struggle with not being enough when things come into play plus we see the family taking on a parental roll that none of them understand more than Kendall.  This book gives us more insight to the new budding “family” plus we also see the changes each person is willing to make for the love of their “brother husbands” and new wife.

I seriously am so sad to see them go but loved the surprises we got at the end with some spin offs and novellas coming our way!!!  Whoop Whoop!!

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her creating worlds with her words, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at a state parks.

Until Valerie by Jessica Marin

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

This was the very first book I have read by this author, but it so will not be the last one!!  I have not read any books by Aurora Rose Reynold’s so I don’t know what characters are from her world, but it makes me want to crack a book open to see 😊

Rowan, Sweet Baby Jesus yes please!!  Can I have a slice of this???  Valerie was just perfect person to connect with him for sure.

Rowan was over the bar scene when this sexy, quiet auditor named Valerie rolls into the shop he does the books for.  The instant chemistry was amazing to read.  Rowan knew what he wanted, and Valerie was helpless to stop the buzz or the BOOM from happening.

The story wasn’t lacking in any capacity.  We had major heat, conflict, and a great backstory for each character wrapped up nice and tight.

I look forward to reading more from this cast of characters in the future.

Jessica Marin began her love affair with books at a young age from the encouragement of her Grandma Shirley. She has always dreamed of being an author and finally made her dreams of writing happily ever after stories a reality. She currently resides in Tennessee with her husband, children and fur babies. When she is not hanging out with her family, she loves watching a good movie, going dancing with the ladies, sniffing essential oils and daydreaming of warm beaches, winning the lotto and world peace.

#NewRelease #Historical #MM – Anthony, The Earl of Crofton by Rebecca Cohen

A tale set in Stuart England, where the king’s life depends on his most loyal of subjects.

Anthony Redbourn, Earl of Crofton, delights in his reputation as a charming rogue. Life is never quiet at the court of King James I, especially with his good friend and secret lover, Sebastian Hewel, by his side. As an actor with the celebrated King’s Men, Sebastian has his own admirers, but neither man has eyes for anyone else.
When a plot against His Majesty is uncovered it threatens Anthony and Sebastian’s charmed lives, and they are dragged into the political intrigue and the race to save the king from danger. Fear that a traitor is linked to the King’s Men leaves Sebastian and Anthony with no choice but to stage a very public dissolution of their friendship, so Anthony can be free to be the patron of a new rising actor, and Sebastian can be the prodigy of another noble.
It is a dangerous game they are playing to expose the plotters and still find a way to meet in secret, as Anthony is adamant that they will not sacrifice the love they have fought so hard to win. They will do whatever it takes to protect the king’s life, and their commitment to each other.

Windy City Dragon (The Treasure of Paragon, #2)

Chicago: the Windy City, where something dark lurks just below the surface

For decades he’s fought to be human…

It’s been a long time since Tobias spread his wings. The exiled dragon prince has worked hard to blend into the human world and practice his love for healing as a pediatric cardiologist. But when magic proves the only way to save a beloved child, he’s tempted to reengage with his past.

She awakens the monster within…

As a vampire-human hybrid, Sabrina is used to being different from the rest of her community. But all vampires need to feed. The night she chooses Tobias as her next meal, everything changes. He’s far more than he seems, and if she doesn’t protect his secret, it could cost him his life.

It takes a monster to know a monster…

One kiss thrusts Tobias into the dark underground world of Chicago’s vampires, where his dragon nature is his only hope of protecting Sabrina. But Sabrina knows the only way to keep him safe is to push him away.

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

Oh baby!!  EEEP!!  Paranormal is so my jam!!  When I grabbed book one, I really liked it and the world that was created.  Holy Moly!!  This book was even BETTER!!

I was loving the fact Gabriel and Raven were still very present in Tobias and Sabrina’s love story.  It was exciting to see Gabriel and Tobias dealing with their past and presents colliding.

Tobias is a typical dragon.  He lives alone and follows the old laws of his land.  He is happy living as a human and ignores his dragons needs and wants.  All of this changes when a certain vampire kisses the heck outta him not knowing he is a dragon but thinking he is a mere human.

Tobias, the rule follower, is afraid of what he feels and what is happening in his very meticulous world when he falls in love when Sabrina.  A love that is absolutely banned in both of their species and worlds.

Sabrina is confused and miserable.  She doesn’t want to become the coven Master, but she was groomed for it and so taking over the “family business” is expected.  However, how cha she keep Tobias safe from all the power hungry vampires she will be ruling when his existence is not to be allowed.

These two have A LOT to deal with like Gabriel and Tobias mother is coming after her children, someone is trying to kill Sabrina to take over the coven plus what the heck is up with Raven???

I loved this story and had the hardest time putting it down to do real life stuff like cooking dinner for my family…gesh just order a pizza already!!  I fell so hard for Tobias.  He is such a hopeless romantic stuck in the body of a moody dragon.  LOL  Sabrina is such a fierce vampire and her bond with him is so strong that even she is stunned by how deep her feelings run.

I loved the last chapter and seeing what is happening.  I am excited to meet the only female dragon sibling in the next book.  She seems like she will be a handful but YIKES at what also was revealed.  The siblings are definitely going to be looking over their shoulder for MULTIPLE enemies!!!

USA Today bestselling author Genevieve Jack writes weird, witty, and wicked-hot paranormal romance and fantasy. Coffee and wine are her biofuel, the love lives of witches, shifters, and vampires her favorite topic of conversation. She harbors a passion for old cemeteries and ghost tours, thanks to her years attending a high school rumored to be adores the beaches of the southeast, where she spends her days with her laptop and one lazy dog.

#WOTR19 #Throwback #Review – My Favorite What If by Lyssa Layne


One year after Jacob “Smitty” Smith is stood up at the altar, his good friend Jules encourages him to redeem his honeymoon package before it expires. Reluctantly, he agrees, and finds himself sitting beside free spirit Sloan Talbott, who is attending her sister’s destination wedding at the same resort. Both have been hurt. Neither is looking for love. Will one week in paradise be a fling to remember or could it possibly lead to something more?

Goodreads




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

AWWW Smitty!! Lemme tell ya..this man stole my heart is Jules book. Then to SEE he was getting a book….Imagine me being a crazy girl jumping up and down. Yes I wanted Smitty to find love. SO imagine my shock when I SEE that the beginning of the book he is getting married. *Insert wrinkled eye brows* Unless her name is Angie, this won’t do!!

Smitty has found his one love. I mean I was even shocked to hear about their whirlwind courtship and pending nuptials but it just SEEMED right. It seemed he found his one…until Jules dropped the BOMB that Caroline isn’t coming. My heart was breaking for my man in the first chapter. NO NO NO not my Smitty!!! Why would this woman leave. He is perfection …in my eyes anyway.

So fast forward a year later and Smitty is still hurting. He hasn’t had the heart to remove Caroline from his life so to speak. He looks at her photo every morning and is still hurt by her departure. Jules has had enough. She FORCED Smitty to go on his trip…..errr…..his honeymoon because the trip hasn’t yet expired. She packs his bag and ships him off to Jamaica for the week. 

Sloan is going to Jamaica to see her little sister get married. But before she can leave she has to go and visit a grave sight of someone she loves dearly. Her husband. She hasn’t been able to move on in over 5 years since he died. Her love for Cooper is so strong and she is happy, or so she thinks, with her life the way it is.

A simple seat assignment on a plane has the two meeting and forming a connection. I gotta say there was something SO RIGHT about Sloan and Smitty the more and more we saw them together. They were like two missing puzzle pieces. They just FIT! 
When the story starts to unfold and we learn what happened to Coop and then why Caroline doesn’t show for the wedding. OMG I dunno which story made me sadder. But the things that REALLY BROKE Me was when Sloan leaves Smitty because of her involvement with Caroline…OMG….DESTROYED!!!

I was a bit mad at my man Smitty but loved when how he owned his heart and feelings. I loved how he never gave up on Sloan and even assisted is getting her family to help him get his woman back!!

I am so going to miss this guy and these characters but trust me you won’t be disappointed.

#wotr19 #attendingauthor #novella -The Bakery by T.M. Cromer

45DEE90C-C131-4DF7-B579-8713DA314799
    
Addie Jones was a woman with a plan. Or at least she had been until the manager she’d hired for her bakery embezzled all her funds and absconded to parts unknown. Now she’s facing ruin and her number one enemy, Math. With only a few short months left to turn her finances around, she needs to find a new slogan to live by. Her current catchphrase “Don’t make me math” simply won’t do. 

Vaughn McAdams agreed to do a solid for his cousin and help her bestie recover from her recent financial losses. He hadn’t counted on Fate smacking him upside the head with a rolling pin, or the zany baker who now calls herself his boss. Her inability to balance a checkbook has him almost as frustrated as her insistence on keeping their relationship strictly professional. 

Whenever they’re together, things start heating up, and it isn’t just the bakery ovens. Can Vaughn convince Addie there’s more to life than candies, cupcakes, and crumpets?

The Bakery is book one in the Stonebrooke Holidays Novella Set.

A millionaire walks into a bakery and asks for a job. What? But you read that write but Vaughn had his eyes set on more then just a job but the cute baker Addie. When secrets, heartbreak, and of all things Math get involved one can only imagine what can go wrong.

#Review #RH #SeriesStarter – Virgo Rising: A Reverse Harem Fantasy Novel (The Afflicted Zodiac) by M.J. Marstens

Virgo Rising: A Reverse Harem Fantasy Novel (The Afflicted Zodiac)

An alternative cover edition for this ASIN can be found here.

           Hi, I’m Zahra Delsol. . . the white Zahra Delsol and I want to tell you about my interview from hell.

And a potential vampire.

And the dream sex.

And the never-ending embarrassment.

Oh, and the obscenely, inappropriate office moments.

There are some silver linings. . .  like a free mini-vacay in Tucson (with some demons).

I’m just a girl trying to make it in the world of internet astrology. . . Actually, I am just a girl trying to pay off her student debt and looking to live life to its fullest (which mostly entails reading in my free time and googling researching information).

So, I would love for you to join me in my Trust Tree of Truth, where I am unfailingly honest and you are abidingly nonjudgmental. Do I need to sell this more or did I have you at ‘dream sex’?

Virgo Rising is book one in The Afflicted Zodiac Series.

The eight planetary gods of astrology all suffer from an afflicted moon caused by the very woman who betrayed them. Imprecated to be ruled by their darker natures, they must find a way to break the curse before it is too late.

WARNING: This novel is intended for readers 18+. There is explicit language, sexual scenes with multiple partners, dominant/submissive themes, and threats made by men who think they are gods. . . I hope you enjoy! Also, please note this is BOOK ONE of a series, and there will be some unanswered questions and events at the end of the book. Thank you and enjoy!


Goodreads


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

I am not sure how to rate this book. It was very different from anything I have ever read.  The whole concept of the story was very new and intriguing for sure but…..yeah…..there were times when I felt bored with the story because it was too descriptive and then other times I was snickering because it was super funny with the character banter…….

I was really torn on this rating and decided to split the difference between the 3 or 4 star with a 3.5 rating.

The story is interesting as Zahra is actually a BEEOTCH names Lina who has been reincarnated.  Lina must have messed up during her reincarnation because instead of the fierce horrible person she normally is, Zahra is a sweet, innocent woman totally confused by what the heck is happening to her.

Zahra is “hired” by the some “men” (AKA the Celestial Duality of the Milky Way and if they are not aligned then the apocalypse will happen) to read their astrology charts.  They don’t all believe her innocent act but need her to fix what she has done to the men in a past life to stop the above-mentioned apocalypse from happening.

The relationship between her and the guys is hot and cold as they all wont to either love her or strange her…LOL The bonds between the men are funny too.  Some seem to be willing to forgive and bed the new Lina AKA Zahra while others are holding those grudges a bit to tight.

Again, I will say if you give this book a try give, it a bit to settle into the story.  It took me a bit to settle in and enjoy the ride.

Bestselling author M.J. Marstens mixes romance, suspense, comedy, and sassy characters who can say whatever they are thinking because it is just a story. When she is not creating steamy scenes or laugh-out-loud fiascos, she is refereeing her three children that she homeschools. In her free time, she loves to eat, sleep, and pray that her children do not turn out like the characters she writes about in her books

#NewRelease #MM – Devil Next Door: Criminal Delights – Obsession by Alex Jane

Devil Next Door: Criminal Delights - Obsession

All Remy Harker wants is a fresh start.

Well, maybe that’s what he tells himself as he rolls up to his nice new house, in the nice little neighborhood, in a town where nobody knows his name.
He’s surrounded by friendly neighbors and a white picket fence. The ugly pink carpet might drive him to insanity, and he can’t stop wondering where the old lady who lived there before him died—but it’s nice.
And if he puts his mind to it, he can be anything—or anyone—he wants to be. He can be nice too.
At least, he thinks he can until he lays eyes on his next-door neighbor.

Luke Boucher is nice.
And quiet.
And perfect.

It doesn’t take long for Remy to insinuate himself into Luke’s life. A camera here, a break-in there.
– It’s not really stalking if you love someone, is it? –

But when Remy’s plan to make a good impression goes to hell, he ends up over his head in more ways than one. Then things aren’t quite so nice anymore.
– It’s not really murder if you love someone, is it? –

Loving your neighbor isn’t so easy when you’re the devil next door.

Goodreads

Stories of M/M romance with happy endings…eventually.

After spending far too long creating stories in her head, Alex finally plucked up the courage to write them down and realized it was quite fun seeing them on the page after all.

Free from aspirations of literary greatness, Alex simply hopes to entertain by spinning a good yarn of love and life, wrapped up with a happy ending. Although, if her characters have to go through Hell to get there, she’s a-okay with that.

With only a dysfunctional taste in music and a one-eyed dog to otherwise fill her days, Alex writes and walks on the South Coast of England—even when her heart and spellcheck are in New York.
