#WOTR20 #SeriesStarter #Review #FreeKU – Being Nobody (Witness #1) by Heather D’Agostino

Being Nobody (Witness, #1)

Samantha Connelly has been on the run since she was seven years old. Forced into Witness Protection after her father saw something he shouldn’t has caused her to learn to blend in. She’s moved, changed her name, and her appearance more times than she can count over the last nineteen years all along wondering if it will ever end. Her handler, Kevin, along with her parents have assured her that it won’t be forever, but as the years tick by she’s slowly given up hope that she’ll ever be normal.

Now at 26, Sam has moved to Chicago and is working at the Rusty Nail as a bartender calling herself Mallory. Her father passed away two years before leaving her to finish what he started…put away the ‘bad guys’. Living on the run in hiding has been harder than she ever imagined, and finding love has always been out of the question. Who would want to be with someone they couldn’t be honest with? She’s resigned herself to being alone, until… Brian walks in.

Brian Sellers is everything Sam has been trying to avoid her entire life. He’s clad in leather and torn jeans, donning several tattoos… all-in-all a bad boy. When their eyes connect one evening, everything she’s ever told herself falls to the wayside as an indescribable draw pulls her to him. He’s sexy and domineering, and something about him reminds her of a boy she used to know.

The more time she spends with Brian, the more she wants him, but…Brian is not everything he seems to be. When Sam happens to see the tat on his wrist, the same tat that her father saw all those years ago, she realizes she’s flirting with the enemy. Brian has no idea that he’s hanging out with the one girl his boss wants dead.

Can Sam hide her identity from the first man she’s had real feelings for? What will Brian do when he finds out who she really is? Can love really conquer all?

Being Nobody is the first book in The Witness series.

I was lucky to beta read this for the author and offer an honest review.

I fell in love with this author reading her Shattered Series. I love that dynamics she builds with her characters. I love that she can weave a story and get you completely and utterly hooked and then *BOOM* lowers the bomb and leaves you screaming at her….yup that is what I did! I emailed her and was all shouty capsing her about this book!! I will say that she DID give me a spoiler for the next book because I MAY or MAY NOT(not denying or confirming) have threatened her with bodily injury!! LOL

So this book is a new venture for our author. She is stepping outside of her comfort zone and is writing a new series/genera. I will even say that the sex was a little bit hotter in this book too!!! *wink* Mallory aka Sam is hiding from the drug dealers who her dad testified against. The family went into the Witness Protection until the bad guys could be found. Well our Mallory has lived several lives and has had multiple personalities because the bad guys keep catching up with her family. Well her new cover is Mallory, bar tender in a locals only kinda bar. Well a hottie biker strolls in and Mallory is allll for the one night stands. She fell in love once and due to her family and their predicament, she had to leave this love of her life. Sooo no attachments, just sex is her motto. Well our hottie biker is kinda involved in bad stuff. Mallory learns that he is involved with THE BAD GUYS she is running from……yikes!!!

Our girls is freaking out. If she tells the Witness people, she will be jet setted off to another life in less than 24 hours. But she is starting to fall for our tall, dark, drink of water biker with a heart of gold. Brian is everything you could want in a boyfriend…well except for working for drug dealers that is!! LOL

The story is so solid and woven together then when we the reader start to put the pieces together it is to late….The author drops the boom and leaves us SCREAMING!!!!!

I will say, if you like a little spicy/naught fun, some suspense, hot biker, sassy female character, then this is a jackpot for you the reader!! But be warned, you will be SCREAMING at the author and you may or may not *wink* want to email her with death threats too

Heather D’Agostino is an avid reader turned Bestselling Author of the Contemporary Romance Series The Broken Series, The Shattered Series, The Second Chances Series, The Cook Brothers Series, and Romantic Suspense series The Witness Series.

#WOTR20 #Review #NewRelease #RH #PartOfASeries #Novella – Logan (White Trash Trilogy) by Brandy Slaven

Logan (White Trash Trilogy)

Logan Rowe has had his fair share of waiting. Between age differences and growing up, he’s been as patient as love is supposed to be. After years of chasing Ryleigh, the time has come. She better buckle up for the ride, because he’s not stopping now until he finally claims her. Heart and Soul.
This is the first contemporary novella spin off from the RH White Trash Trilogy, which does not have to be read first, though the character cameos will make better sense if it is.

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

SHUT UP!!   GAH THIS BOOK!!

I have loved reading the side story of Ry and Logan since the very first novel.  Those two are something fun and crazy.  They needed to finally stop pushing and pulling and just communicate.  Logan is ever the ladies man, or is he?  Seems he has been pretty twisted up over his sister-in-law’s bestie for a long while now.  Ry has been head over heels in love with her brothers friend since childhood but the cocky and arrogant guy just cant figure out how to win her heart.  Ry isnt a huge fan of cocky and arrogant!!  LOL

This novella was the perfect HEA to their story.  I gotta tell ya I loved it . Logan is a lot deeper than I think I gave him credit for and Ry is a lot more determined to have her own perfect love.  I sooo loved seeing Kendall and “The Quad” for a few scenes but the focus on the Rowe boys was perfect.  I am sssssuper excited for the other Rowe brother books as well.

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at one of the state parks. Bringing her characters to life is one of her greatest accomplishments.

I am J.E.Mueller and I write fantasy. When not writing, I enjoy playing video games and doing crafts. All writing and non writing adventures tend to be overseen by my cats, who have caused some hilarious misadventures when they decide to ‘help’.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

It’s an easy toss up between my office and the local coffee shop. Does coffee count as food? It’s certainly needed!

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I love meeting fans and new people. It’s always exciting to introduce someone to my work and hearing what people thought of previous books. It’s also a lot of fun to meet the other authors. I’m always learning something new from them.

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

Kelly Blanchard. She does a fantastic job writing fantasy/sci-fi

What author would you love to write with?

That’s tough! I think a few from my writing group would be great. I cannot wait for them to join me on the published side.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

The time a fan contacted me on twitter. I had no idea someone several states away found and read my books. It was exciting to hear!

#WOTR20 #Review – When You Were Mine by Cindy Tanner

 

When You Were Mine

One letter a week. Care packages optional. Adopting a Marine seemed like the perfect extra credit project.​

Harper Evans never expected to fall in love with the Marine she adopted. She never expected to meet him in person but a surprise gave her the chance to claim who she wanted. Then life proved it can break your heart a million different ways.​

Asher Williams fought for his father and country, but he will fight hardest for the woman that stole his heart. Harper may have changed her mind about the life they planned together, but Asher wants it enough for them both.​

Will he still feel that way when he learns it all?


Goodreads

Amazon

I purchased this book.

I met this author at a book convention this summer.  She was a friend of a few friends so of course I had to buy the book when it releases.  She was super sweet and friendly to boot, so my inner blogger was all about helping this chick out.

I read the blurb and thought “Oh this sounds like a sweet romance” and what I got was like WHAT!!!!  I mean the twists and turns and darkness SHOCKED ME…….and I loved it.  Guess that is what I get for making an assumption right???

The blurb is about a couple exchanging letters and the title “When You Were Mine” makes you think of a 2nd chance love story WHICH is true buuuut the rest is totally not what you expect.  I will admit because I went in thinking one way, I was a bit thrown off at the beginning.  Asher getting a Dear John letter….what??  I was a little confused and thought it was choppy but once the story got going and I realized it was ME who was wrong, the beginning makes total sense.

Harper has been through some stuff.  She is broken both mind and body.  She is walled off and walked away from Asher because she doesn’t feel worthy anymore.  She has her dad’s shop and her drag race strip so nothing matters any more.  She will live a content life with her bestie, Nona, and maybe find love but not passion with her other bestie, Ran.

Asher is not going to let Harper go.  He has no idea everything she has been through or to the extent of what she has been through, but he remembers the hopes and dreams they had.  He is bound and determined to get his women back.

Along the way we see Harper pushing Asher away, making some not so great choices and then dealing with her past that seems to haunt her daily.  We see Asher reaffirming his love and devotion to his women along with doing all he can to protect her.

I think the book was written great and I look forward to reading more.  I kinda hope she revisits these characters because Nona and Ran need an HEA!

Cindy Tanner has been a book worm since way before it was cool. Preferring to interact with fictional characters than people in real life she began writing at a young age. She has a wild and vivid imagination that has gotten her into (and out of trouble) more than once.

Cindy lives in Southern Indiana with her family and is a proud Midwestern farm girl. She loves all books, cheesy action movies, and animals. But hates writing about herself so don’t judge her books based on a slapped together biography.

#WOTR20 #review #RH #Paranormal – How to Train Your Husbands by Monica Corwin

What happens to love when magic enters the game?

Goodreads

I purchased this book.

I am like a Monica super fan.  I love how she can turn classic lit into modern stories.  When I saw she published this naughty little number I grabbed it because I haven’t really ready anything of hers that is over the top naught plus its RH….SOLD!!

This story is about the love triangle of Caden, Winter and Aurelia.  Caden and Aurelia are the first couple to hook up but when we get Caden in the story it makes the duo a much stronger triumvirate.

The scenes are super hawt and very yummy to read if you want a sexy fun novella then this is it for you.

The 2nd story in the book is an addition to Aurelia’s harem of men with the addition of Abel.  He wasn’t the most honest of men when he approached our trio so when everything happens, we learn a lot more about this group then before.

I would love to read more from the story and hope Monica can write more.  Abel wasn’t in the boo klong enough and I REALLY want a Caden/Winter SCENE!  JUSY SAYING!!

Monica Corwin is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author. She is an outspoken writer attempting to make romance accessible to everyone, no matter their preferences. As a Northern Ohioian, Monica enjoys snow drifts, three seasons of weather, and a dislike of Michigan football. Monica owns more books about King Arthur than should be strictly necessary. Also typewriters…lots and lots of typewriters.

Goodreads


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

*Clapping* I love me some Novus Pack and this quick novella was a great addition.  I love love love the background to scenes in the story.  I will say, since I am all #TeamLore, I thought his story would be my favorite but it Issa’s story.  I love seeing her and Asher fighting this chemistry…..well ok she is fighting it.  But it totally made me excited for more Novus.

The parts with Conal and Solle were like hanging out with your cool friends and seeing how amazing their relationship is.  Its like seeing them alone and getting to be the “fly on the wall” of their amazing love story.  *Sigh* I just wish we got more for them!!!

Lore….I mean can you go wrong reading more from him and getting clips into the crazy killers head????  Not in my book!!

M. Jayne doesn’t know what she wants to be when and if she ever grows up. She’s worked retail, recorded hearings in a Federal Courtroom, worked behind the scenes with security at a casino and currently she is living her dream writing Romance. She plots and plans from her farm in central Indiana that she shares with her husband and two mastiffs, Ginger and Duncan Keith.
