Review by Twinsie Melinda

I purchased the audio book and eBook combo from amazon.

These audio books are pulling me in and I cannot put this series down. Cat Maxwell did an amazing job these MC men and their women are so addicting.

Amelia was with Roger who was the provider and expected Amelia to know what he wanted when he wanted it. If she didn’t live up to his unsaid expectations, he would beat his expectations into her even tossed her downstairs. Amelia finds herself in the hospital almost losing her babies. When the cavalry arrived to help her get away from Roger.

Cass was sent to retrieve Amelia as a part of an underground railroad system to help women out of bad and deadly situations. cast finds he is drawn to this beautiful pregnant woman. He wants nothing more than to provide his Lil’ mama and her babies. Will Lil Mama decide to stay with the MC or will she continue her journey to gain freedom from violence for her and her babies. Amelia meets Cass sister Christy who has demons of her own. I enjoyed seeing this relationship grow as much as I did the one with Lil Mama and Cass.

Cass and Lil Mama’s relationship is slow but so good. But Cass has to show little mama he is capable of a long-term relationship and can be a good dad to her babies. This series is turning into a favorite. Red and roadkill was good and I enjoyed Cass and Lil Mama but next up is hack. Oh man he captured my attention and do believe he will be my new BBF.

On a dirt road in Nevada, a woman lay dying.

In book one of Montana Steel MC: Josh ‘Red’ Luke, Montana Steel MC Nomad, wants to go home. It doesn’t have anything to do with running from something as much as the need to find his place in the world.

Together with the training from the military to never leave a man behind, and his soul feels almost whole.

However, the memories come in hard, harsh bursts and the struggles to figure who she was, leaves her reeling and landing in the violent MC world where her natural instinct to run come out. One consecration the lack of memory fortified her—was to discover a thing she never gave a chance in the past—love.

When those who caused the hurt find out their target is alive, but under the fog of amnesia, they set out to finish the job. With her life in danger, the safest place is in Red’s arms. He can heal the woman’s body, but can Red convince her there’s room in her heart for him?

I purchased the audio book and eBook combo from amazon.

Michael Prince and Rin McCabe are new to me authors and after listening to roadkill I will definitely be diving into more of this series. Tanner DeBruyne did a wonderful job of keeping me engaged in the story.

Josh Luke AKA red is on his way back home to help his mama out after the death of his father. he decided to take the deserted road and good thing for Nova he did. She was left in a ditch to die. Red was able to fix her up and in the process found he only wanted to protect her more.

Nova is struggling she cannot remember anything not even her name so in true MC fashion she earned her nickname roadkill. Roadkill has to decide if she will act on her thoughts of running far from the MC or if she will stay and let red in her heart.

Red is going back home and starting his own mc. Will trying to protect roadkill, forming a new chapter and dealing with the stress accompanying being the president proved too much for red. Red and roadkill go through so much on their journey but it makes them stronger and shows them if they can make it or not.

I’m excited to see where this series will go. Most MCS are already established this one we get to see evolve from the beginning. There are so many characters I am interested in seeing what happens to them and see who will stay, who will go and who will join in the future. I have my eye on one guy right now hack.

Especially when he’s so good with my daughter.

Chapter One
Walker
At exactly eleven o’clock, I slip a quarter into the old jukebox on the back wall. The bar is silent as they await tonight’s selection. My bar, my choice, and tonight, I’m feeling a little rowdy. The opening melody of “Dr. Feelgood” blasts through the speakers, resulting in a loud cheer from tonight’s patrons. As I make my way back behind the bar, I get a few high fives from the guys and even more phone numbers slipped into my palm from the ladies. I wish I could confirm they’re all single, but the truth is they’re not.
Just a typical Saturday night at Burgers and Brew, the place I co-own with my three best friends. We all have our forte within the business, and mine’s behind the bar. Mixing drinks and slinging beers. That’s my life, and damn, what a life it is.
I slap Jasper on the back as I slide under the bar and jump right back in to filling drink orders. Everyone’s singing along, word for word to the ol’ 80’s hair band tune, as part of our weekend ritual. It’s an ode, a salute to our college days and the band we all grew up listening to. We built this business, taking an old brick building in downtown Stewart Grove and turning it into a staple.
Jasper’s the man in the kitchen, the one who comes up with the mouthwatering burger creations we’re known for. Isaac is the numbers guy, the man who keeps us in the black and our taxes completed on time. Jameson’s the muscle because he’s big and tattooed. But he’s more than that. Jameson is talented as fuck with a guitar and serves as our house musician Friday and Saturday nights. Then there’s me. Walker Meyer, bartender extraordinaire, who keeps the beer flowing, the panties melting, and the tips rolling in.
We’re the Brew Crüe, and damn proud of it.
“Dance, dance, dance, dance,” the crowd starts to chant, encouraging me to do what I do every weekend when we play Mötley Crüe.
Dance.
When I glance over at Jasper, he’s already shaking his head, but there’s no missing his wide grin. He knows what’s coming. Placing my hands on the bar top, I jump, hoisting myself up on the aged oak. Patrons erupt into cheers as I grin down at them. Mostly, at the ladies. The single ones and even the not-so-single ones. No, I’m not taking any of them home, but that doesn’t mean I can’t give them one hell of a show.
I twist my ballcap around so it’s on backward and start to swing my hips. Mama blessed me with moves, which helps almost double my tips every night. Women go crazy for a man who can dance. That’s evident by the number of panties that’ll be thrown behind the bar in a matter of moments.
Swaying my hips, I do a little dip and grind, popping my ass out and sending the ladies in the front row into cardiac arrest. They scream and reach for my pant legs, digging their nails into the denim. Instead of shaking them off, I wink and carefully walk a few steps away. Then, when we get to the refrain in the song, I throw my arms out to the side and belt out the words, everyone singing along with me.
It’s like karaoke.
But better.
As the song winds down, I steal the drink in Jasper’s hand and hold it up over my head. Everyone in the bar does the same. We sing. I dance and drink. The panties start flying.

With his team falling apart, Charger has an important decision to make. Stay or get out while he still can. Staying means he’ll bring down the one person he’s ever cared about but walking away means he could lose her forever.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

So i was a bit confused why this was Charger and not Raven. Charger is a Guardian and Raven is becoming a Warrior. No worries Teresa has a whole lot of surprises up those sleeves of hers.

The chemistry between Raven and Charger is combustible. Charger will not allow himself to fall for Raven. Raven knows there is something between them but cannot allow Charger to crush her heart. Needing a change Raven left the Guardians to become a Warrior. In doing so may have unknowingly opened up pandora’s box. Charger is torn trying to deny his feelings for Raven and fulfilling his need to protect her. Then we have Jarred that tries to take on the roll of Dad to Raven.

We are introduced to a whole new cast of men and women with the Guardians. Some I am so intrigued by and would love to know more about. We got to see a different side of Raven at her BFF wedding. But, just when things are going great guards are dropped and tragedy strikes.

The plot twist on this on was phenomenal. I cannot wait to see where Teresa takes this or Raven’s Book but first up is Lana.

Teresa Gabelman is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the ‘Protectors Series’. When not writing about sexy alpha vampires and the women who drive them crazy she can be found on a lake with a fishing pole/Kindle, at a MMA event or spending a fun evening with family.

Being a full-time writer has allowed Teresa to connect more with readers which is what she loves most about writing. If you find the time she would love to hear from you!

#NewRelease #Review – Rebellious and Reckless (Campus Hotshots Book 1) by: Michelle A. Valentine

40787194. sx318

He’s Rebellious in the Ring and Reckless in Love.

Sky Cold knows exactly what she wants, and it’s Luke Finnegan, the college campus star quarterback. The only problem is she’s not even a blip on his radar. In order to get noticed by her crush, she’s willing to exchange the extra bedroom in her apartment to Luke’s tattooed, older brother to find a way into his social circle.

Baker Finnegan is determined to get out of his father’s shadow and do things his way. When he falls on hard times, and the sexy, slightly nerdy co-ed, Sky offers him a place to live in exchange for fake friendship, he can’t pass up the opportunity. But when Baker quickly realizes the only match he wants to make for Sky is one with himself, he has to convince her to look past his reckless ways.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

Michelle A. Valentine is a new to me author this was the first book I have read of hers. Really you cannot go wrong with a football player, fighter, frat brothers and the quiet girl. 

Sky is the quiet girl that like all other girls has a big crush on the school quarterback. Only problem is he has no idea she exist. She finds out Luke has a brother and when the opportunity arises to have his brother Baker help her get noticed by Luke she is all over it.  You see Baker is recently homeless so Sky hatches a plan with Baker.  She will allow him to stay in her extra bedroom if he helps her get a date with Luke. 

Baker is now on the hook to help Sky get a date with his brother.  Only one problem Sky has work her way in and Baker is realizing she is meaning more to him than just a friend and he knows Luke is not good enough for her.  Plus now that Sky has become such good friends with Baker she is wondering if she has picked the right brother. 

Baker and Sky both keep secrets about their family and for a while the house rule “family off limits” is okay to each of them.  I was rooting for Baker and Sky but Sky is determined to make it work out somehow with Luke.  Baker and Luke had their own issues to deal with.  Not only did I fall for Baker, Sky and Luke there were other side characters that intrigued me.  I want to know more about Baker, Sky and Luke’s friends.  I did enjoy watching Sky open up and let someone in.  It was hard on my heart to see Baker struggle with opening up only to possible lose the girl.

Since I am reading Michelle A. Valentine for the first time, I didn’t quite understand the significance of who Sky Dad is but if you are a fan of her writing and have not read this yet you will probably go crazy when you find out who he is.  I will say after reading this I will be checking out a few more books of hers.  And I also want to check out the 2nd book in this series coming out in April.

New York Times and USA Today Best Selling Author Michelle A. Valentine is a Central Ohio nurse turned author of erotic romance and New Adult novels. Her love of hard-rock music, tattoos and sexy musicians inspired her BLACK FALCON series.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Just One Glance (oh tequila 5) by C.A. Harms


The quiet one. Yep, that was me. The brother that rarely said anything and instead, stood back and observed. That is until too much tequila and very little thought had me swinging my junk around in the middle of a crowded college party. Hell, I even wore tassels in areas tassels should never be placed. Let’s just say, the hashtag #dicksaswinging will follow me around forever. You may have heard it a time or two already.

In my defense, things like that happened all the time because I lived in more of a zoo than an actual fraternity house. It just never happened to me. Suffice to say, I learned my lesson.

Seeing Ruby amidst all the chaos was certainly unexpected and it stopped everything around me. The room suddenly went quiet and everyone else disappeared. She stood out—the timid way she worried her hands and the way she looked around, almost as if she was ready to run away.

As I got to know her, I realized she was nothing like the girls I normally dated. She was quiet, innocent, and sweet. She was the complete opposite of me and if I was a better man, I would walk away. But I’m not and I can’t.

And to think, all it took was Just One Glance and everything changed.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Ruby the daughter of the dean just wants to let loose have fun and live the life she wants but for her dad that isn’t what he thinks she should do so she just keeps her nose in her books and does what she’s told. Now her bestie Darcy well she makes sure she has a bit of fun while she can,so with the help of Darcy’s forceful personality, they create a list of 10 things Ruby can do to have a bit of fun and feel a bit alive.

Jay wasn’t quite your typical frat guy yes he had his moments like forever being known by his hashtag dicksaswinging after a drunk night at the house where he let his twig and berries have some air and it was caught on film. But when Darcy lets her past with these frat guys get to her she lets Ruby know that they are all the same and just want to get into your pants. Will Ruby let Darcy keep her safe and keep her from the one guy that could be different from the rest or will she just let herself feel cared for and finally live. I swear I love each book more and more these books make me wish I had this type of college experience and happy extended family like these guys all found. I just love them so much I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of them.

 

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast

Love Letters Lost (Suspenseful Seduction World)

Genni

Being back in my small hometown for Gran’s funeral sent me into a full-blown panic attack, and at that moment, a handsome stranger swooped in, becoming my salvation. From first glance, Brian made me weak in the knees with his commanding disposition and firm yet gentle touch. He pulled me in.

I took a chance on him…and all hell broke loose. Caught in the crosshairs of a mob war, I’m kidnapped for the sole purpose of being used as collateral in a power struggle I can’t begin to comprehend. I believed he would save me though. I needed to trust Brian to get me out of there and to introduce me to the enticing world of BDSM. Now, my life is in his hands as we battle against the clock to ensure my survival.

Brian

Visiting Illinois to catch up with an old friend was an ideal weekend…made far more delectable when I saw her. Genni was a damsel in distress who awoke my Dom side with a desperate need to protect her..to care for her..to guide her into my world.

But there is evil out there I can’t shield her from, and it ensnares her in its ominous web. With my family’s background in high-stakes security, I call them in to help me track down her kidnappers. One way or another, I will get her back alive, and I will never let her go again.

*Love Letters Lost is part of Samantha A. Cole’s Suspenseful Seduction World

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Love Letters Lost is all about ending a chapter in your life and taking a chance on starting the next great adventure. This is such a wonderful story that pulls at your heartstrings but also has plenty of action, suspense, wit… and of course some amazing sexy time! Genni comes home to take care of her gran’s funeral. She is a mess over her gran’s death. She is trying to put on a great facade but Brian, a handsome sweet talking stranger, swoops in just at the right time to save her from herself. These two meet under not the greatest of circumstances but connect immediately and can’t stop thinking about each other. As these two start to get closer, an old friend decides to show his true colors and all sorts of truths start coming out of the woodwork. Including a secret about Brian being a Dom. An epic sh!tsh#w is going down and Genni is right in the middle. There is some fighting, some kidnapping, and some loving happening in what seems like the snap of a finger. Genni’s mind is whirling while all this is going on and trying to process Brian’s BDSM background. She is not sure if this is something she can get on board with, but also is in it a little too deep and not sure if she can just leave Brian alone. Thank the gods she decides to follow her heart (like her gran told her to) as she decides she needs to keep Brian and give this a try. 

This is a beautiful love story with all the right elements to keep you on your toes. One thing that I really loved about this story is that the only information that Genni had about the BDSM lifestyle is from what she read in romance novels but this author does an amazing job of describing the lifestyle and giving glimpses of the scenes without the story being consumed with sex. The story itself pulls you in with a deathgrip until you read the last page. All the rest is a bonus! 

Miranda Lynn

Escaping reality one book at a time has been Miranda’s motto since she learned to read. As an only child raised on a dairy farm her creative imagination brought words to life. She devoured more books growing up than her little town bookmobile could handle. It was inevitable that she would turn from reading them to writing them. This is her way to help not only herself but others escape the day to day drudge. Her books may take you on a journey through time, give you a look inside a fantasy realm, or delve into the magic of almost anything paranormal. Threading in heart stopping romance and dropping an occasional super sexy scene just to keep you on your toes.

Miranda’s stories are focused around strong female leads and sexy males who appreciate them. She strives to encourage her readers that they can have it all in real life too.
You can find her most days either subbing at the local high school or tucked away in her office working on the next story with a cup of java in her hand. She loves connecting with her readers online as well as in real life so make sure to find her on Facebook and check out where she will be signing throughout the year on her website.

#AuthorSpotlight – Kelsey Elise Sparrow

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself and which Twinsie do you know.

Kelsey Elise Sparrow. I am a romance author who loves most versions of the genre. That means, I write under several subgenres. I’m also a teacher and mother. Some of my favorite stories have all left me wanting for more as well as thrown me for a loop. I decided I wanted the same to be found in my writing.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The ones that come after especially if there has been time or other works between works.

What comes first? The plot or characters?

Most of the time the plot comes first. On a very rare occasion, the characters give me the plotline and everything that comes with it.

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

I have a few. JM Walker, Audrey Carlan, JR Ward. Top of my list would be Gena Showalter. I love her works and have for years.

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

1. Do you keep a notebook handy for all your notes on a particular book as you write? 2. Do you have a process or checklist from concept to publish? 3. Are you one to promote other lessor-known authors?

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series?

Oh gosh. I absolutely loathe writing the blurb for my novels. The series names and titles come easily but the blurb makes me want to bawl my eyes out every time.

What is your definition of success?

Success is when you have readers who are just as passionate about an author’s characters as the author themselves. The characters are loved and the readers want to know what’s going on in their lives.

What are your social links?

#WOTR21 #AuthorSpotlight – Anna Hague

Anna Hague

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Anna Hague. I’ve been publishing since the fall of 2016. I write contemporary, erotic and now am writing a paranormal series. I’ve been a sports reporter for 25 years and am married and have three parrots and two dogs.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

I think the books that follow the first one. In the first one, you’re starting with this terrific idea and it’s easy to run with. With the others, while secondary characters give rise to the other books, you’re having to create a whole story for them and still keep the details of the original book all in line.

What comes first? The plot or characters

For me it differs from book to book. In Captured Hearts and Thunderstruck the plot came first. A song inspired Captured Hearts, while a vacation location began Thunderstruck. In my erotic novels, the characters were first.

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

Carl Hiaasen. He’s not a romance author. He writes these quirky stories set in Florida with these outrageous plots and characters. He’s a great smartass too, and I love that in a man.

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

1. Do you ever think your story is too ridiculous to sell?

2. How much guilt do you feel if you don’t write everyday?

3. What would you do differently if you were starting over?

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.

BLURB. I hate it. I suck at it, and now I hire someone to do it.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

When someone who wasn’t family or friend told me they loved my book.

What is your definition of success?

Obviously, it’s not financial. I think my success is realizing I’ve more than one story in me. Some authors have a best seller and are never heard from again. I’m happy knowing my mind is full of all kinds of stories.

I absolutely fell for Wilder he was so not what I expected him to be.  I have a crush on Scarlett.  These two were made for one another if only they could have seen it.  Justin “Wilder” Miller was amazing he with Scarlett. He knew when she needed to be pushed and when she needed space.  Wilder could read her like an open book.  Scarlett is a snarky, sassy, and thinks she is a loner.

Scarlett did not have a good family life growing up.  She is a loner doesn’t let anyone in because she knows they will hurt or disappoint her. Wilder had a good life growing up with a loving mom and dad and two brothers.  After working for Wilder people started worming their way into Scarlett’s life. First the Girl Squad then Wilder. It was hard for her to keep them all at arm’s length.

This was so good. Wilder knocked me off my feet and Scarlett was a tough cookie.  I have to say Wilder’s brother Paul walked away with my entire heart.  He had me in stitches with his text messages to Scarlett.  The text messages from everyone to Scarlett were good.  The way Wilder was with Scarlett warmed my heart like I said he could read her like a book and always knew what she needed. All I can say is I wouldn’t mind being a part of Wilder World and have sandwiches.  Scarlett is one lucky girl.

Here are a few of my favorites:

There’s something between us and I can’t deny it any longer. And that right there is a shitshow in the making.

“I thought you were here to give me your understanding. This doesn’t feel much like that.”
“I never said we were gonna be all fuckin’ hearts and lollipops about it.”

“Don’t you dare look away when I’m taking your beauty in. I want you to watch me. I want you to see what you do to me.”

Wilder World is my new favourite place because holy hell, I’ve never felt what I am right now.

Bring those fires the fuck on, Scarlett. I’ll walk through every single one of them.”
