#WOTR21 #Paranormal – Finding Faith, Dragon’s Fated Heart book 2 by Beverly Ovalle

Finding Faith (A Dragon's Fated Heart Book 2) by [Beverly Ovalle]

The apocalypse had been and gone.
Those left banded together for survival, creating safety from the chaos.
They succeeded.

Faith wanted more, she wanted to live, to love, fly free. More than survival, Faith craved adventure. Leaving home, seeking a new life, all that ceased when she witnessed her sister being abducted-by dragons, creatures shrouded in myth. Determined to rescue her, Faith begins an adventure she never wants to end.
Dragon shifter Crag follows his heart, hunting for his fated mate. Once he finds her, Crag is determined to keep her safe, from all threats. Admitting he is a dragon shifter and involved in her sister’s kidnapping may be the end of them.
Until the interference of a race of dragons desperate for survival grasps their only chance, stealing Faith and drawing Crag along to save her.

Crag leaned over, snagging a little piece of pink cloth from the floor. Clenching his fist, he lifted it to his nose, the scent assaulting his nostrils. Inhaling, the spiciness pervaded his lungs, curling inside of him, clenching his gut. Snapping his eyes open, Crag breathed in the scent in again, savoring it. His dick twitched. Lowering his hand, he gazed at the delicate panties. The scent assuring him they belonged to his mate. Lifting them again to his nose, he took another deep sniff, enjoying the spicy bouquet and imprinting the scent of his mate forever onto his soul.
He turned at the gasp behind him. Hope, his brother’s mate looked at him in disgust.
“Is that necessary?”
His lips twitched. “Her scent is strongest in what she wore closest to her body.” He raised his brow, daring her to argue with him.
“Hmpf.” Hope shook her head and gestured for him to leave the room. “Just find my sister.”
Crag shoved the pink panties in his pocket. He didn’t need them, but he wanted them. Pleased with having something of his mate’s, he quirked a grin at Hope. Patting Hope on the head he turned and left. The growl from her was just a bit of icing on the cake. Crag shook his head passing Hope’s grandmother. The twitch of his lips the only sign of his amusement.

#AngstySlowBurn #FriendsToLovers #PartOfASeries #InterconnectedStandalones —Finally Us (Next Generation #5) by: JM Walker


-Vince-
She was perfect.
Her heart.
Her soul.
Everything.
I had been in love with Gigi Rodriguez for as long as I could remember. I had never been shy about my feelings toward her. Everyone knew how I felt. Except for the person who mattered most.
I needed her like I needed my next breath. Our souls called out to each other, entwining together to form a bond I had never felt with another person.
She was passionate.
Strong.
Mine.
Just when I thought I had her in my arms for good, an unknown force threatened to take away the only thing I had ever wanted…

-Gigi-
He was stubborn.
Obsessed.
Dominating.
Vincent Stone Junior was the very reason I danced. Every time I moved, I moved for him. He just didn’t know it yet.
It all started the night of his eighteenth birthday, but school got in the way and I didn’t see much of him for the next three years.
When he came home for good, I knew that he had one mission: To crack down the walls I had built.
I didn’t want to love him.
I didn’t want to need him.
But losing a piece of myself made me realize that I did in fact want those things. He taught me to love myself first and that he would be there, ready and waiting…
For me.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Ahhh Vince and Gigi, oh how I have anticipated their book. The wait was long with the authors constant teasing but this story was definitely worth waiting for.

You look up the definition of soul mates in the dictionary and I’m sure there will be a picture of Vince and Gigi there. These 2 were destined to be together. There were SO MANY obstacles in their way. He is younger than her by 4 years, so he felt he needed time to mature. She was constantly in her head so Vince had a tough job ahead of him, working to break down Gigi’s walls. Then, just as he starts making progress- BAM- things manage to get crazier! But Vince is determined and Gigi can only deny her feelings for so long.

Gah! This book had it all. An oh so hot Alpha male who had me fanning myself on more than one occasion. A sweet Heroine. One who I admit, I wanted to shake some sense into several times. I just loved Gigi. And don’t even get me started on the villain. JM writes a good villain and this one takes the cake! Finally Us brought out all of my emotions. I laughed, cried, yelled, and even cussed a few times. A definite binge worthy read. I am LOVING this Next Generation Series. And seriously cannot wait for the next release.

Goodreads



I received this book from the author for free off her webpage during a sale.

I love dragon stories!!  Totally love them.  This is the first story in a series, and I am stoked.  I will say I read book 3 first BUT you can totally read this in any order.  Anywho, that is just my little boo boo.

This book starts out and we meet hatchlings Ari, Crag, Hark, Rog, Juevatorj and Belisa.  They are coming out of the cave and immediately Ari feels pain.  His mother informs him that is his mate’s pain.  She sends Ari and Crag out to find the unknown mate.

Ari is a bit nervous because what is she isn’t really his mate?  He really has no clue except once he SEES Hope he knows she is the one for him.  He does make a slight Boo Boo annnnnnd welllllll he steals her. Now Now he does it to protect her buuuuut yeah…its prolly gonna cause issues later for him.

Hope is in pain when 2 men appear and help her injury.  She is drawn to Ari and doesn’t understand why.  But she is throwing all care to the wind and letting what may be happen because she has never felt this way with anyone from her family block.  We learn from Hope that people used to live alone but with the apocalypse they have started to form “Families” or “Blocks”

Poor Crag is not thrilled to be stuck with Ari and Hope all up in each other faces but then Ari starts the change and there is no stopping Hope from becoming a dragon.  AGAIN, Ari kiiinda should have had a talk with his mate because it is surely going to cause issues for him later.

I really enjoyed the introduction to the series.  It’s a great way to learn the characters and their personalities plus learn about the world.

Born to It: Hellions Motorcycle Club (Hellions Ride On Book 1) by [Chelsea Camaron]

Enemies to lovers, this is one passion fueled ride … are you ready?

BW-

Third generation Hellions MC patched member—earned never given.
I’m the son of Talon “Tripp” Crews and namesake to my grandfather Blaine “Roundman” Reklinger.
I was born to wear this cut, to take this ride.
I am Blaine “BW” Crews.
I deal in motorcycles, money, and mayhem.

Karsci-

I wasn’t born a killer. I was made into one. Earn my place on my back or by my blade … I choose option two.
I am Karsci “Fox” Sheridan.
I deal in death, dollars, and destruction.

When she’s pulled into his world, they have one choice—end each other or hang on for the ride.

*This book contains mature content not suitable for readers under the age of 18. Content includes strong language, violence, and sexual situations. All parties portrayed in sexual situations are over the age of 18. This book is not meant to be an exact depiction of life in a motorcycle club, but rather a work of fiction meant to entertain.

Goodreads

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

Oh Snap BW gets a book and hell if his future Ol’ Lady isn’t just the sass he needs.

Blaine AKA BW wears the name he has with pride. He was named after the original president who is also his grandfather. He knows there are a lot of expectations with being a patched member, but he fully embraces this life and what goes with it. Just like his mom, Doll, and his dad who is the current President, Tripp, he is ready for the life, love and loyalty that is with the club brothers and their families. His life is all about honor and doing the right things for people until you do his wrong to his family then look the EFF out!!

Karsci AKA Fox is doing what she can to survive. She will not show emotion and will do what the job is to finally be clear of her debt. She is owned and will do anything to make it through the last of her jobs to finally be free. When she runs into BW at a street car hot rod show, she is stunned stupid at the attraction but also the fact he is do KIND. In her world kindness is not expected. Nothing is done for free….NOTHING!!

As the story progresses we know Fox has a job and we see the conflict start to arise because her feelings for BW and his family are making her weak. When the twist is revealed, all her secrets come tumbling out of the closet, her and BW are at odds. But just like the Hellions do, they rally to protect and support their own and Fox.

I loved the new spin off and if you haven’t read the original series, no worries because you get a quick peak at the history when each character is introduced. I gotta say I am DYING for Dia’s book. She is gonna be one hell of a handful for her intended and her family!!!

USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was giving this book by the author and this is my honest opinion

Jordan lives in a small town and doesn’t really hang out with too many people only because she has a huge secret that she’s never told she can shape-shift into a wolf. She’s never met anyone else that’s like her until a mother and daughter move into town. They become close and Jordan  discovered that the new girl can also shape-shift but instead of a wolf she shifts into a bobcat. So now Jordan has a friend and she couldn’t be happier, she had someone else who was like her and she didn’t feel so alone anymore. There are a lot of mystery things that are happening in this small town that Jordan and Georgia just can’t explain so they decided to investigate what they find will shock them both or will it?  This was a good read but a little rough for me to get into in the beginning just felt like it was all over the place in the first chapter but then got back on track in the next chapter. It was a very good and quick read.

J. Lawson was born and raised in Davenport, Iowa. She moved to Peoria, Illinois in 2008, where she currently resides with her husband, son, and two dogs. She graduated from Western Illinois University with a Master’s in English Literature. She has been published in multiple literary magazines, and The Amulets (book one in The Amulets Trilogy) is her debut novel. Lawson enjoys reading fantasy, thriller, mystery, and most varieties of fiction. She also loves 80s-90s rock music.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Vince and Gigi…I have been WAITING for these two to get it together and finally admit there is something there! Gigi needs to stop pushing him away because he is younger and Vince needs to grab his woman and claim her.

This story is a great age gap, friends to lovers, friends from childhood, etc story. Vince and Gigi have always had a powerful chemistry.  Both wanted the other and did things to make the other jealous/take notice but secretly pined for the other…..ok so Vince quietly chased away any prospective dates for Gigi but who cares…LOL

This story is told as a little bit of a slow burn but once Vince and Gigi hit the sheets, the burn is met with gasoline and it’s an explosion of dirty words and positions. Not enough Orbit gum people not close to enough!!!

Vince has known he loved Gigi and was going to do anything and everything to prove to her he was her forever.  Gigi had slowly grown her attraction for Vince but the fear of the age gap and how her friends would respond held her back.

One night of passion changed everything and then 3 years later they are back to face down what happened and the walls she erected after their night together.

Vince…OMG he needs a medal for his ability to deal with Gigi and her walls.  They were taller then the Nights Watch in Game of Thrones..dunno the reference I am sorry for you…..He puts up with some much from his girl.  He will not let her go and will do everything to let her know he is never leaving again.  Gigi is a hot ass mess for this boy…errrr….man who has stolen her heart and melted down each and every wall she has tried to put up.

When they finally realize they are not going anywhere and they are going forward some weird things start to happen and some weird vibes start to appear.  Gigi and Vince have to deal with some trauma that could break them apart if they aren’t able to deal with it.

I am going to say it but Vince might be my favorite of The Next Generation Kids.  I love Meadow as my favorite girl, but Vince is the swoon worthiest male of them all I think.  Seriously…SWOON WORTHY!!!!  But damn that mouth too!!!  LOL  Gigi is his Queenie in public and his little slut in private!!

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

OMG so excited it is finally Vince and Gigi turn.  These two were meant to be ever since they were little. Vince has loved Gigi ever since he was little, but he is five years younger than Gigi and he knows he must by his time to prove he is enough for Gigi. When he turns 18 they share what Gigi thought was a special moment before he left for school.

Vince is 21 and returned home now is his time to make his move on Gigi. Gigi is his and always has been. Vince hurt Gigi bad and she has some big walls that he needs to tear down. Vince is patient and tries to convince her what he knows. OK she may know it too but not ready to let him in.

This is an amazing slow burn and when these two finally get together they are like an explosive. Age is just a number and has no bearing when chemistry is involved. I love seeing these two together and how they interact together. We even get a few twists in here too. I do believe Vince is my favorite so far but are a few more on the way so we will have to see if he can hold on to that special place in my heart.

#WOTR21 #review – Shadow of Jane by Amy Hale

She’s lost, scared, and can’t remember a thing about her past or her identity. She senses all is not as it should be, but without her memory, how does she know what to fear and what to trust? Because of her status as a Jane Doe, she names herself Jane and works to put her life back together. In the process she learns that she possesses unique abilities that certain people will kill for.

Fate throws Colt and Jane together, but they both have a lot to learn about forgiveness and acceptance. Colt’s determination and Jane’s remarkable gifts will send them on a journey they never expected. To survive they will need each other, but sometimes facts are scarier than fiction, and the truth is better left unknown.

Goodreads 

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Dee

I don’t know what it was about this book but it had pulled in from the very beginning. Colt just wanted to get away for a while when he had a knock on his door and then the girl that was on the other side fainted in his arms and their magical journey starts there.

Since childhood, best-selling and award-winning author Amy Hale has been creating exceptional stories that summon a whirlwind of emotions and inspiration unto the reader. She loves creating characters and worlds from nothing but her imagination and a few glasses of wine. Her popular paranormal series The Shadows Trilogy has earned multiple awards, as have the Havenwood Falls books, of which she is a participating author. Her love of the written word has not only resulted in her writing some of her reader’s favorite adventures, but has also manifested itself in the form of some seriously overloaded bookshelves. She’s convinced it’s not a sickness.

She debuted her first fiction novel in 2015 after retiring from 13 years of non-fiction writing for various online entities. For the last couple of decades, she’s also carried the titles of Laundry Goddess, Chef, Butt Wiper, Soother of Temper Tantrums, and in more recent years, Moderator of Sarcastic Eye-rolls and Sass. She resides in Illinois with her husband and two grown children who claim they are never moving out. Regardless, they are the center of her universe, although her cat believes otherwise.

If she had any spare time, she’d love music, photography, watching Mystery Science Theater 3000 with her family, and long rides on the back of her husband’s motorcycle.

Contemporary Romance; Sports/football romance; Surprise Baby

 

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby carriage.

Then comes the unexpected baby carriage.
At least we got one in order.

Except Davis doesn’t want the same things I do.
I want to fall in love.
He says love isn’t for him.
I want a family.
He has made it clear that a family is not on his agenda.

But babies don’t care about your plans. They come when they are ready. Even if you aren’t.
The same can be said about falling in love.

#WOTR21 #review – Melt Anthology with attending authors Harley Easton and Marie Piper

Harley Easton and Marie Piper are our attending authors.

Melt

Kick off the holiday season with this sexy collection of five brand new romance novellas.

Rocky Mountain Meltdown by Harley Easton
Writer Tessa Hazel can’t stand the cold, so when her agent banishes her to a Colorado ski lodge in January, she’s far from happy. To make things worse a surly hotel worker and her favorite frienemy are working to keep her out of the arms of a sexy ski instructor. Will a little extra snow fix everything or cause Tessa a major meltdown?

Body Heat by CM Peters
Whether it’s in the green valleys of Ireland or the cool land of Maine, love can bloom and wither as fast as a snowflake. Is it a good omen when two lonely hearts meet on a stormy night? Can they make it through when everything pulls them apart?

Off-Season by Marie Piper
Winter in a rafting town means blessed solitude as far as Eva is concerned, until sexy rafting guide Charlie shows up on New Year’s Eve. If the two of them can survive an ice storm, a bear, and each other, they just might realize they’re perfect together.

Finding Home by Sienna Saint-Cyr
When Marina scheduled her long overdue vacation to Leavenworth, Washington, all she’d wanted was a chance to sip her tea in the adorable Bavarian village and forget about her ex. But her plans quickly went awry when a hipster in a beanie stormed into the teashop demanding his rental manager fix her mistake… for she’d rented his cabin to Marina, while he’d planned to be there.

Damsel by Stephanie Bissette-Roark
Cassandra never wanted to return to that old, converted barn atop the hill. But when her estranged father leaves it all to her in his will, she journeys home to discover if any part of her broken past still remains. She didn’t expect to find Ethan Bailey waiting for her, a strange man who kindles in her powerful—but unwanted—feelings of familiarity. When a treasured childhood toy transports her into an imaginary world, Cassandra will come face-to-face with a man that looks just like Ethan, but whose medieval garb tells a different story. As the lines between make-believe and reality blur, will her new companion bring healing love and open her heart in the real world or will the monster of her past consume her?

All proceeds from this collection will go charities that support mental health research and aide.

Goodreads

I was gifted this book by the author after winning it in an author takeover.

Rocky Mountain Meltdown by Harley Easton

This was a sweet and quick read.  The story is about an author who along with her rival are checked into a ski resort for the weekend of writing and working.

Tessa is none to thrilled for the burly lumberjack, Bryce, who seems to keep judging her but is thankful for the hot as heck ski instructor, Kevin….or is she.

It seems our burly and grumpy lumberjack has a few secrets in the closet in regard to Tessa and her writing.

The story made me laugh at the antics of our rival author because who doesn’t love to see an enemy get their much deserved paybacks!  But seeing the connection between Bryce and Tessa develop and the ending chapter was a sweet ending to the story.

Off-Season by Marie Piper

This story was probably my favorite of the set of stories.

Eva was left her uncle’s diner in a small rafting town.  Eva is quite happy to live her life in solitude because she doesn’t feel she is good enough to be with the person she really desires.  Her fear and insecurity make her push him away at every turn.

Charlie is the owner of the main rafting group in the area and he is head over heals for Eva.  He has no idea what he did in the past to make her run but he is dead set on claiming her for the new year.

The couple have major issues because Eva thinks so many wrong things about Charlie is doesn’t really believe him when he tells her the truth.  When a scary situation with Charlie makes Eva run to help him, she slow opens her heart to what he might be….a really good guy.

I really enjoyed seeing Eva open up to Charlie and seeing him help her overcome some of her insecurities within herself.
