#WOTR20 #5YearFamily #AudioReview #Family #SpinOff – Love and Pancakes (Rockland Falls #1) by Lacey Black

Love and Pancakes

Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.

Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.

What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?

I received this book from the author but purchased the audio book.

Ok since I am reviewing the audio book I gotta say….HEEEY Rhenn’s narrator.  Holy Sweet Baby Jesus that voice.  Imma tell ya, you will be thanking me for that right off the bat.  I don’t want to know what the narrator really looks like because my mind has his picture juuuuuust right.  LOL  Now I see he does the voice for the other 2 books…….YES is all I can say.

So this is my first Lacey book….yeah yeah I know late to the party like always but ya know what can I say. I have only known her 5 years *Face Palm*

I gotta say I loved the dynamic of quiet and shy but sassy Marissa with Rhenn.  Rhenn is all playa playa who falls for the women who embodies his exact opposite type…ya know, she isn’t an easy whore.  LOL

Marissa is devastated by her family’s business/home fire and is lost because what will they do.  When her long lost family enters the picture, she gets connected to Rhenn who will be doing the family a favor and wiring the house for them.

When Rhenn shows up, he is stunned stupid at the beautiful women he sees but knows she isn’t “his type” and a quick roll won’t be something she is interested in.  When, after getting to know him, she proposes Friends with Benefits while he is in town….he flips out.

I loved seeing them fall but fear telling the other.  They both want more but she fears she isn’t good enough and he is ashamed of his past.  When the two weeks is up and they part, I was a little bit weepy and wanted to kick Rhenn in the balls.

The end of the story is perfect and totally swoon worthy.

I gotta say Emma and Orville KILLED ME in this story.  Marissa’s long-lost aunt and uncle were to inappropriately funny in this book.  I can’t wait for more of them in the rest of the books.  I am kinda giving brother Samuel a look over because I just know the right women or even man could make that anal-retentive ass crumble.  But first up is sexy diva Harper.  I can’t wait to see who tames this wild child!!

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.

#ReleaseDay #Review #RomanticSuspense #BookOneOfThree #Cliffhanger — Genesis (Bones, Book 1) by: Paige P Horne

With the smell of moonshine still drifting in the air, me and Johnny turn around to watch the house and the man inside burn up.

A noise from behind causes us to look back, revealing a girl with hot pink socks, black boots and wide, curious eyes.

She wasn’t supposed to be there.
She wasn’t supposed to witness what me and Johnny did that day.

The truth is, I fell for Bexley Walker the moment she promised she’d never tell.

But our time together was short lived for I am who I’ve always been. A man on the wrong side of the law. I thought I could change for her, but we can’t outrun the truth that lies within us.

I am my father’s son. Born to be a criminal.
Now, because of me, we’re both in danger. Held against our will. Tied and locked in a room together, we are forced to relive the love we once shared.

Review by Tenise

5 STARS! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I received a copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review.

FINALLY! I have been wanting to know more about Bones since before I even knew Bones was going to get a chance to tell his own story.
We first met Bones in the Give Me Love trilogy. From the moment this bad boy was introduced, I was very intrigued and wanted MORE! And I definitely got more.

Genesis starts way back before Bones was called Bones. Back when he went by his birth name, Danny O’Brien. The book switched back and forth between present and future. Filling in the holes and answering questions about how Danny and Bexley met, their relationship throughout the years, and how they got to where they are today.

THEN. The book just ended. I wanted to SCREAM! It was over and I have more questions. I need more answers. I am happy to wait to get them, though. I can already tell, Bones and Bexley’s story is one I just want to keep reading.

I LOVE paige P Horne, her books are automatic one-clicks for me. I don’t care what the books are about, I go in blind, I read her words and I ALWAYS love her words. I’m just counting down the days until I can get my hands on Insurgent (Bones, Book 2) I’m positive I will love it!

#WOTR20 #ReleaseBlitz #Paranormal #Dragons – The Dragon of Sedona (The Treasure of Paragon #4) by Genevieve Jack

The Dragon of Sedona (The Treasure of Paragon Book 4)

Darkness he can’t forget. Light he’s afraid to remember. Magic that could change everything.

Exiled dragon prince Alexander never recovered from the murder of his mate Maiara, an indigenous healer he met over three centuries ago. Every waking breath is a painful reminder of what he lost, his grief compounded by the constant presence of her immortal red-tailed hawk, bound to him since her death.

When three of his siblings arrive with news that he may be in grave danger, he secretly welcomes the possibility of a violent end to his torment. But as the four reminisce about how they came to know Maiara in the New World, they begin to see her life and death from a new perspective.

For the first time, the source of Maiara’s power is revealed and inspires a new but precarious hope. There may be a way for Alexander to be with her again, but his second chance for a happily ever after is risky at best, and at worst, could cost him the only thing he has left.


Goodreads


I received this book from the author.

GAH I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!  I will say this series does need to be read in order because otherwise I don’t know you will get the true feel of what is happening.  You definitely won’t get the pure joy out of reading these characters and this family if not.

Alexander lost the love of his life.  He has tried every way possible to die but dragons just won’t die and his hawk won’t allow him to die either.  When Gabriel finds his brother and lets him know all his siblings are mated and that things are definitely NOT what they thought when they left their home world, Alexander is unsure about everything.  How can all this be and why would it be this way.

Maiara story is how the Prologue starts out and we see her being chased but a wendigo.  She is a very mysterious women with interesting abilities and gifts.  When she dies Alexander is lost and doesn’t want to continue life without her.  The possibility of having her back is something he wants to complete his life.  He is lost without her and seeing his siblings all happy is killing him.

Seeing the story of the siblings find their mates and the story of their mother’s betrayal to them is continued ark of the series.  I love seeing them all meet up and reacquaint themselves and their mates to the old and new worlds.  I have to say Gabriel and Raven are my favorite couple but maybe that is because of the fact they are the first story???

USA Today bestselling author Genevieve Jack writes wild, 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

#WOTR20 – #Review – Black Magic by Aspen Winters and Verity Inkwell

Black Magic by [Winters, Aspen, Inkwell, Verity]

My name is Nix, I am a familiar. Or I want to be one.

I turn twenty-one in less than two weeks and before than I have to find a witch that will bond with me. If I don’t I will turn into a normal cat and all never get my human form.

The problem is, no one wanted me to be their familiar. I am not very good with magic or channeling any magic. Every time I try to do so, something blows up….or catches fire. There was only one witch I knew that may take me in, but the rumors about her aren’t that good.
The witch is said to be a black magic witch, and she already has four other familiars.

I can only pray the Black Magic witch will take one more familiar, for she is my only hope.


Goodreads


Amazon

Great start to a new series. This story dives into what it takes for a familiar to bond with a witch. I love the background of this and what is at stake if a familiar isn’t bound to a witch. This story follows Nix and she is on a race against time. Her magic is uncontrollable and her family isn’t helping. She has to bond with a witch, and pronto so she isn’t stuck in her cat form. She attempts to go to a warlock who takes in all familiars but finds herself in a very bad situation. As a result she finds a few new friends during her escape. Some of this may seem like a godsend to her…a witch to be bound to with all male familiars *wags eyebrows* but trouble is right around the corner. Now that NIx can control her magic she embarks on a journey of self discovery. She stands up to her family, and has an incredible harem of men that want her and have no problem sharing her…then their witch gets kidnapped. The overall premise of the story is great and the story flowed well. I would have liked to have a little more of the slow burn or more time getting to know the guys than there was. Their relationships seemed a little rushed. Ultimately all the characters mesh well together and there is a great story to continue to be told. This is a new author for me but I look forward to reading the next in the series.

#WOTR20 – #Review – Beauty Loves the Beast (Wylde Paranormal Love #1) by Robyn Peterman

Beauty Loves the Beast  (Wylde Paranormal Love #1)

Carter

Avoidance had become my norm. After too many tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, I’d checked out—on everyone and everything—on life. Ex-navy SEAL. Totally broken man. I’d hit rock bottom so many times, I was sure I was about to fall straight to hell. It would be a welcome reprieve.
Then she found me. Beautiful, insane and more broken than I was. She needed my help. I needed her humanity.
How she found me was anyone’s guess. But she had. She needed rescuing. She needed a hero. I was none of those things.
But for the first time in many years, I wanted to be. I wanted to be her hero.

Georgia

Becoming an undercover agent for the CIA had been my dream until everything went wrong—wildly wrong. Trapped in a cage with nothing to do but anticipate more torture from the ones I was supposed to trust, I had no choice but to escape—again. This time I’d succeed or die trying.
They’d turned me into a beast and it was time to show them exactly what I could do.
Finding the beautiful man who could help me end my pain was something I’d never expected—or wanted.
It was a complication for normal people. I wasn’t normal. I would never be normal.

Could two broken pieces make a whole? Could we truly disappear with the government hunting us down like animals?
He was Beauty and I was the Beast. Happily ever afters didn’t happen for people like us.
Or did they?


Goodreads


Amazon

I am a huge fan of twisted fairytales and was not disappointed by this one. Loving the paranormal and the role reversal! There are two completed broken and messed up people just trying to survive. 

Georgia thought she was doing exactly what she loved by being an undercover CIA agent but ended up trapped and experimented on. When she makes the escape she runs to Carter, the broken ex-Navy Seal. As their worlds collide, they both become the hunted. And here my friends, is when the action picks up as well as Georgia’s snarkiness and her death wish. 

“Your life would be simpler if we offed me. Just saying.” “Maybe I’ll off you tomorrow,” I replied, … “But today, I’m finding complicated quite interesting.

This is full of action with tons of sarcasm but with the sweet love story in the background that we all have come to love. Even if they don’t make it, they will take their stolen moments together. I am hooked on these and am very much looking forward to the next in this series. Bring on the crazy hawtness!

Robyn Peterman

Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.
A former professional actress, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her a chance to have a job where working in her P.J.’s is acceptable. You can follow Robyn at http://www.robynpeterman.com and at Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robyn-P….

#Review – The Golden Pecker by Penelope Bloom

The Golden Pecker

I never planned to tell Andi who I was.
Hell, I never planned to meet her.
But her grandfather’s will changes everything.
That, and the shockingly intimate to-do list he left for us.

Landon

I’ve known about Andi Wainwright my whole life. Until now, I’d done a damn good job of keeping my distance. No photos. No social media.

But that changed when I learned about the old man’s death. I had the misfortune of being his business partner, and now the keys to my future are tangled up in his ridiculous will.

First, I had to personally bring Andi down to his club, The Golden Pecker to show her some mysterious video. I may be in the dark about what’s going on, but I know one thing:

I don’t care what’s on that tape. Nothing is going to change the fact that Andi Wainwright is the enemy.


Goodreads


Amazon

Fun Rom Com with light BDSM, sure. Why not? So, I personally, am not into BDSM but I sure am of the sarcastic sort. When I saw the title of the book and the cover, I one-clicked not really knowing what I was getting myself into. I was pleasantly surprised and actually laughed quite a bit throughout the story. 

“As the saying went, when in The Golden Pecker, do as the peckers do. In this case, Landon was the Pecker King. The peckeriest pecker of all, you could say.”

Andi and her sisters are mourning their grandfather’s death and his will still needs to be read. What they didn’t know was their grandfather has secrets and has stipulations to have the will read. This where Landon comes in. Landon has it in his mind already that Andi is the enemy and that he completely hates her but now he has to escort her to have her portion of the will read. This is where Andi finds out about her grandfather’s secret of owning several BDSM clubs. And now the fun begins. These rules involve Andi and Landon in the club. Landon is very professional and brooding while Andi has a defense mechanism of being snarky and sarcastic at all the right, and wrong, moments. Pairing these together brings a ton of fun into this light BDSM world. The chemistry between the two are great while they are unraveling all the secrets. The story is intriguing but with the right amount of funny. I recommend this book to just about anyone and look forward to reading others by this author. 

Penelope Bloom

I’m a USA Today Bestselling Author and have written nearly a dozen top 50 amazon bestsellers, including four books that have hit the top 10! Despite all that, I’m still a nervous wreck before I release every new book and I still feel like I have so much more to learn about writing and publishing than I can even wrap my head around.

I’m just beyond honored and humbled that so many readers have embraced me and found enjoyment in my words, because I can’t think of any better opportunity than this.

When I’m not writing and stressing about what I’m going to write, I’m trying to wrangle my two little girls who are 2 and a half and 1 and a half. When I’m not wrangling them, I’m trying to keep my husband in line.

Writing and helping run the family aren’t easy, but I’d never trade it for anything!

#WOTR20 – #Review – Mean (The F*cked Series Book 3) by R.K. Gleason

Mean (The F*cked Series Book 3)

There are few options left to Major Carolyn Brooks. As the ranking officer sent by the military to oversee containment operations, she’s prepared to take any steps necessary to ensure the safety of humankind. The virusite must be stopped from spreading any further. Sterilizing the potentially contagious population may be the first step to global salvation.

As Dave and Pam guide their loved ones to safety, they’re confronted with how quickly people have begun turning on one another, and the lengths others will go to to take what they want. Dave and Pam are forced to face the realization they may not all survive the escape they hope to make. New bonds are forged, and old ones are left in tatters. Dave begins doubting his ability to lead their group.

One thing is certain, before this is all over, things are going to get mean…

*This is book three in a series of novellas.


Goodreads


Amazon

Wow! What a ride! I really enjoyed this story as there is the right amount of gruesome and perfectly timed sarcasm to even things out, in a crazy good way. I am a zombie enthusiast, so to read a story that really is about survival and family is incredible. There is no romance here in the middle of the apocalypse. This is the journey of Dave and Pam’s family trying to make it to safety. There are zombies out there, roads are blocked off everywhere, and they need to find a new vehicle as theirs is just not going to make it. About the time they get a plan together they deal with the crazy survivors that are out for blood, no matter whose it is. New friendships are made and the group gets bigger. Dave is having a lot of doubts on whether he will be able to save everyone and the doubts grow with the new additions to the group. But as things get heavy, it really comes down to family and survival. I cannot wait to continue this journey with the family as I root for them to survive and get to safety.

I was born high in the Andes and raised by a band of wandering gypsies. At the ripe old age of 7, I struck out on my own, dabbling in the arts of alchemy and personal financing. Neither of the trades paid off. At 13 I became the personal juggler for Stephen King, but alas, that didn’t last long either. Since then, I’ve wandered aimlessly through life and this planet, stopping along the way to help people and smite the wicked.

A little while ago I decided to try my hand at writing. I published The True Death series independently in 2015 and currently have ten books published to date.

Jody Vitek

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Jody Vitek – I started writing after having to leave my job and become a stay at home mom of two, and ended up with a bonus baby a couple years later. I have written five novels, and four short stories in four different anthologies. I have three children, a dog, and a cat. I recently lost my husband so writing has been pushed to the side, but not forgotten.

When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.

It has to be quiet. The only time I put music on is if I need inspiration, and that’s rare. I’m usually at my dining room table or in my office when writing. I generally don’t eat and work at the same time because it stops the mojo. If I’m not drinking coffee, it’s water or tea.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting readers, of course.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Well, I already met Nora, so I’m happy.

When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?

When I am writing, my day usually starts between 9 and 10 am and goes until about 3 pm. Of course I stop for lunch around noon. Last year I started doing writing sprint on laundry days. Most of the time my writing is done at home.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I attended my first BIG author signing, with my first release, at the RT Convention and sold a few copies of my book.

Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?

Night Whispers by Judith McNaught – This was one of the first romance books that I read the stuck with me for days and nights well after I’d finished reading it.
