#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review #RH #MM #MMF #MFM- New Years Surprises by Brandy Slaven

New Year Surprises

If there’s one thing Imogene loves more than donuts it’s her two best friends. When a planned trip for the three of them goes awry, never in a million years did she think that it would end with her in the arms of five sexy strangers. Men who are more than willing to prove that she’s more than her own opinion of herself. A week alone in a remote cabin in the mountains puts more at risk than they all realize. Will they be able to keep their hands, and more importantly, hearts to themselves? Especially as the New Year brings them a surprise none of them are expecting.

Goodreads

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

“WHAT did you say!!!???  Heck Yes!!!” when Brandy asked if I wanted to read this was my reply!!!  I mean RH was awesome but then she threw in some MMF, MM and MFM…..This was like a dream read for any woman!!

Imma is a girl going through some serious stuff.  She needs her friends, but they seem to have forgotten the whole “Girl Code” and for different reasons they cancel on a girl trip which is totally not cool.  Anyway, Imma packs up and heads to the mountains hoping it will recharge her broken soul to find out it has been double rented…rented to her and her friends AND to 5 hotties who are giving her the hungry eye once overs ALL THE TIME!

Imma and the guys (Evan, Ollie, Wes, Thatcher and Murphy) convince Imma to just hang with them for the time.  Well friends that is when everything gets interesting.  Let’s just say Imma has some bed hopping fun and a LOT of sex happens between her and the mens!!  *wink wink*  I won’t ruin it because holy hot tamale do I need to go to church and confess the lust in my heart with reading this book……but yeah its good reading!!

The end of the story we have some conflict and Imma needs to be reminded of who she belongs with and how families care for each other.  If you love Brandy like I do, then this novella will be a great little ditty to tide you over until her next book hits our ereaders.

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.

The Ties That Bind by Mary Martel

The Ties That Bind by Mary Martel

Goodreads

The Ties That Bind is book 4 in the Ariel Kimber Series.
Ariel Kimber isn’t like most seventeen year old girls. She’s different because she’s a witch with magic and it’s rare for females to hold magic anymore. She’s settling into her new place amongst her coven of guys while she’s settling into her new home at the same time.
The Council’s appearance into their lives has put everyone on edge. With good reason. Ariel is forced to meet with one of them on a regular basis so that they can learn from each other. Really, though, they just want to get to the bottom of where Ariel came from and she is more than happy to comply with them.
Because there is one thing she wants more than anything else in the world, and that’s to find the man who has been searching for her for years. Her biological father.
And Ariel is willing to go through any and every thing to find him.

This is the fourth book in a slow burn Reverse Harem Series

My Review –

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

Man, this book…in a word….INTENSE!! There is a lot that goes on this this book plus a hella-lotta of set up for the next few books. You better buckle in friends because shit is about to get crazy!!

Before I begin, I gotta say I LOVED seeing Ariel spend time with Dash *Blushing* I dunno what it is about him but he is just *Sigh* so sweet. I also loved Ariel starting to date the other guys she hasn’t bonded with. We see the bonds she has with Her Salt & Pepper Twins, Uncle Panty Thief, Tyson, and even Dash but Her date with Damien…seriously put him on my radar!!! Then her time with Julian even if it was brief…..Yeah I loved it!!

You guys so much happens in this book…like for real…so much. Rain makes an appearance and I am still not sure if he is the wonderful Father Ariel is hoping for OR a Sociopath…like I am on the fence and you will be too when you read this book. We see more of the Council, Chucky and even *GASP* Annabelle appears in this book. *Grumbles under my breath about that skank*.

But the biggest reveal comes when we find out about Ariel and her Biological Witch Family….WHOOOOOOO that is some heavy stuff!!! But I think learning more and more about the Council gives me the chills because Ariel is gonna have some serious problems if they find out her true nature as are her seven coven boyfriends!

I cannot wait for more because this series is getting just so much better and more complex with each story!!

Tray , Hells Harlem #2 by JM Walker

Tray by J.M. Walker

Goodreads

Despair. Hunger. Pain. Need.
It started the moment she bumped into me.
Ecstasy. Danger. Seduction. Terror.
She was off-limits, but it didn’t stop me from wanting her.
My life was empty. My thoughts were dark. My heart was stone.
Feeling unwanted for most of my life, I didn’t know where I belonged or what my purpose was. He was all I had until she came along and brought out emotions I never knew were possible. She was innocent. Pure. Untouched. She was the daughter of a rival club member, but that didn’t stop us. It only heightened the desire, the passion we felt. We were happy…until someone she trusted made a move that no one saw coming…

My Review

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Holy hells bells friends. Strap in for a bumpy, sex filled ride with our favorite Mistress of Teasing!!
Tray…man I loved him in Greyson’s book. I so wanted to know more about this fun guy. I was a bit shocked at all that he was hiding from us seeing how fun and light he was with Eve. He has major layers people. He is dealing with his guilt over treating his best friend so badly and hoping to salvage their friendship when he meets Zillah. He is stunned stupid at her beauty and her sassy mouth!!
Zillah has lead a bit of a sheltered life. Her dad is a bad ass MC President who will not let any man look at his daughter as anything other than HIS LITTLE GIRL!! She is naïve to the way of the club and to the way of seasoned men but when she sees Tray, she is hooked. She needs to see where this connection will go.
The two have an insta-love-ish story but it’s also built on mutual respect and their love of horror movies! Tray hides a little bit about himself because he wants to make sure someone loves him for him and not the bad ass biker everyone thinks he is. Along the way we find out someone is stalking the couple and it makes them both a bit on edge because who would be following them.
When Zillah gets a call and the Hell’s Harlem get some news all the shit erupts in an epic battle of good guys vs bad guys!! The why for the stalking is crazy and what happens later is even crazier!! Dude but Zillah is one bad ass chick. I have a total girl crush on her and you will see why when you read it!
JM got a few emails from me yelling at her because she made me cry A LOT in those parts of the book…good tears, happy ears and of course, sad tears!! The epilogue and bonus epilogue ….have tissues because damn it they killed me.
I am so happy with Tray’s story but my heart aches for Catch…it just aches…..but who is this River kid and when do we get to read about his!!???

Reviving Kendall by Brandy Slaven

Reviving Kendall by Brandy Slaven

Goodreads

“I’m not so sure that I’m strong enough to take yet another blow to the heart.”

Growing up, I’ve always lived on the wrong side of the tracks. I’m used to the stares, name calling, and disrespect. A tragic accident that leaves me short three of the only people I’ve ever loved, has me devastated enough to try to end my own life. Just when I think there’s no hope, I find a reason to live again, or four of them as a matter of fact. Lucas, Maverick, Teagan, and Goose. But what happens when those bonds are tested? I’m not so sure that I’m strong enough to take yet another blow to the heart. My name is Kendall Davis and what if my story doesn’t have a happy ending?

*This is the first book in a Contemporary Reverse Harem Trilogy.

My Review

I received this book from a friend.

SHUT UP!! #WhyChoose is why I LOVE RH!!! My friend Mary was all “DUDE you need these books in your life” and then she gifted them to me. HOLY HELLS BELLS!!! I sat and read 50% before I knew it. Kendall is so awesome and feisty and yet so broken and damaged. The guys IE Mav, Teagan, Goose/Grant and Lucas made my heart just beat so fast and so hard for each of them. Each guy is so different but such a needed part to make Kendall whole again.

Kendall is the only girl who has the strength and NERVE to take on these 4 different guys. “The Quad”, as she calls them, are sweet and hard headed but so in love with our girl. They are so confused and yet they can’t wait to try and make her theirs separately and as a group.
Kendall has had so much hardship losing her parents, her nana, her dying grandpa and her VanPelt brothers AKA her boyfriends. She is just living and dealing with a jealous rival named Derrick. Kendall has no idea why he hates her yet he won’t leave her alone.

The Quad comes to her restaurant and she is none to pleased at their come on so gives them the business!! She may live in a trailer park and everyone might THINK she is less than, but she lives by a certain code of honor.

As the story unfolds, we see the guys showing up and helping her out but individually stealing kisses and moments. When a fun trip to the mountains turns sour, Kendall turns her back and runs. When her crappy life gets eve worse, she is shut off to the world until her guys come back and refuse to leave her.

When the 5 decide to give things a try, we can see the stress of the unknown disappear. When the decide to openly claim each other as THEIRS, we can see the group becoming closer and tighter. I can’t wait to read the net book and have it downloaded to start right away!!!

Secrets by Aleatha Romig

Secrets by Aleatha Romig

Goodreads

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen aboveground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

*Secrets is book one of the Web of Sin trilogy.

My Review – 

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

Holy crap on a cracker!!! Gah!! This book!!!! #Anxiety #NeedADrink #GodIsHeSexy

Sterling is so alpha, so domineering and so yummy yet I know he is going to break my heart at some point in this series!! I can already feel it. There are so many secrets and things he isn’t telling Kennedy/Araneae my anxiety is through the roof!!! But can we talk about how much of an ass he is and yet he only followed her instruction…Snicker……the airplane scene is the BEST!!!!

Kennedy was thrown a huge curve ball in the beginning of the story and we know once the Sparrow family finds her things will go dark and bad. Ugh but why does bad have to come in such a yummy package!!! I feel for her because she is a caring person and it seems caring for others is the weakness that will get her killed. I only hope she can finally listen to Sterling and realize he is the one trying to protect her from others who want to harm her….or is he?????????

This story is an amazing set up for what is surely to come. The final scene has me going “Oh snap!!” I mean gahhhh!!!! I am dying to know what exactly will happen because it seems Sterling didn’t tell our girl the whole story about what is going on and what is happening.

See Me by M. Jayne

See Me by M. Jayne

Goodreads

Throughout history, The Lady, Goddess of the Lycan world, has gifted werewolf packs with humans who carry her mark. Theodora Morrissey’s plans to return to college for her graduate degree are ended when she is awakened by an otherworldly voice on a rarely used airstrip in Nebraska. Injured and disoriented, she has no idea the discoloration on her back has marked her as a Seer, and that she is now a possession—and the prisoner—of the Novus Pack of Lycans.

To the Novus pack, the word of their leader, their Laird, is the law. With compelling gray eyes and long dark hair, Raider Black rules his pack with intelligence and ruthlessness. To cement the security of his pack, Black has committed to mate another Packleader’s daughter. But he’s finding it impossible to fight his attraction to the pack’s alluring new Seer, claiming her as his own.

Sweet, fearless, and unintentionally funny, Theo upends Black’s world and pushes the boundaries of his rules. How far is Black willing to go, and what will he sacrifice, to save both his pack and the human Seer who’s found a way not only into his bed, but his heart?

My Review

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

Before I start this review, I am going to let you in on a little secret. I am a paranormal whore. I love love love paranormal AND shifters are like the icing on the cake for me. So, if you write a paranormal and I read it, I will judge/rate harshly. Its my favorite genre and its my go to read when I want something to read. With all that stated up front, you gotta know what I am about to say is deep and true to my soul……I. Loved. This. Book!! Like WTF!! It blew me outta the damn water. I will admit I was a bit skeptical about the whole Lady Goddess stuff at the beginning. I wondered if I would dig it or if it would be something I found to be an OK read. FRIENDS, this book rocked my world!! Like legit, ROCKED ME HARD!!!!

I absolutely loved the world M. Jayne (Melanie) created. I loved her mythology. I loved her side characters and seriously I am hard crushing over Lore BUT I am also scared outta my mind at him. Raider Black is our main character and he is so tough and bad ass but so tender when he wants to be but also please remember he is uber bad ass!!! Theo is thrust into this NEW world. She stumbles but runs into it with eyes wide open. When she is given her new title in the Pack, she tried to be 100% the best she can be. Her friends Solle and Conal are the best companions for her. They are loyal to Black but guide her and help her understand the human world is not at all like the Pack’s world.’

The story was so wonderfully written. I seriously kept saying “one more chapter before bed” and then the next thing I knew it was 11PM and I and 10% of the book left!! Might as well just read it and appreciate the reason for being grumpy the next day was because of the wonderful story telling. I thought the flow of the story was amazing. You were always wondering what would happen next. I know the angst of the two main characters fighting their pull and draw to one another was amazing. When they finally give in to one another it only made their bond THAT much stronger. The character banter was hilarious, but the emotional draw of the characters made me so excited for this new series!

I am so excited for the next book and wonder where the story will take us because I am totally hooked on the Novus Pack!! #TeamNovus #TeamLore #TeamSweetBabyJesusThoseWereHotScenes

Blood Lust by Tricia Andersen

Blood Lust by Tricia Andersen

Goodreads

She doesn’t believe she has a soul.
She believes it was stolen from her when that bastard turned her into the creature she is now.
But little does she know, she does. What is there isn’t dark and twisted, defiled by the lust for blood. She is pure and loving, with a body and attitude that arouses me every moment of the day. And I will move universes and defy my father and mother to make her into something I’m worthy of loving, someone that will stay by my side through eternity.
I will fight the forces of the gods to make her mine. I won’t stop until she belongs to me forever. And how am I, just a mere fighter, going to do that?
Because, baby, I’m a god.

My Review –

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

HOLY MOLY this book knocked my socks off!!! Paranormal meets the Greek Gods?? Uhm YES PLEASE!!! When Tricia told me about this book, I was super excited. When I finally got the book, I was ecstatic. I can’t say enough how much I loved reading this book. But remembering all the Gods from college, I was like “OMG Yes I remember them.”

Juliet is a typical vampire looking to score some blood. Well our little vampire is a little more than usual because she actually cares about who she drains dry. She strolls into the underground MMA fight looking for meal, when she sees the most beautiful and sexy man EVAH!! She is all “Game on” with this one. She knows he might be a bit more of a challenge, but she is ready for it. She is stunned when all of a sudden, the man of hour is right there at the bar hitting on her …along with others things he does with her at the bar *snickers*

Ares, the God of War, is mesmerized by the vampire at the club. He knows she will be able to “handle his appetites” so he dives into a night of fun with the little minx. He is loving spending time with her because she challenges him at every turn and he loves it. He can’t get enough of her telling HIM, the God of War, No!! I love the banter the two have because they cracked me up a lot.
When Ares and Juliet discover there are serious emotions at play, they both freak. The last person Ares loves was Aphrodite and we all know how wonderful their relationship turned out….not good if you weren’t aware. The last person who Juliet loved broke her heart and turned her into the creature she is now. Love and Trust is not something these two people can willingly accept from others.

His family hates her and wants her dead. His ex has become a bit too clingy and needy…ya know I don’t want you but I don’t want anyone else to have you type of chick *eye roll*….her maker is all about claiming what is his again after hundreds of years, PLUS the vampire hunter is closing in on Juliet. There is so much action and so many plot twists you never see what will happen next!! I seriously hope we get another book really soon and I am BEGGING for it to be Aletha because I just loved her so hard but Pan would be pretty funny to see which nymph captures his heart.

#WOTR19 #paranormal #Novella #NewRelease #Review – The Vampire’s Genie (The Wish Series Book 1) by Teresa Gabelman

The Vampire's Genie (The Wish Series Book 1)

One would think most genies have it made, but that’s not the case for Janelle. She hates the outfit, hates the lamp, and overall hates the gig. It’s not until hot vampire Dean Frye steals her out from under her current master’s nose that she thinks maybe being a genie has its benefits.

Dean has one thing and one thing only on his mind when he sends his friend on a quest to seek out a genie lamp. Freedom. Plain and simple. Then he meets Janelle, his genie, and realizes that granting every wish her heart desires is the only wish he wants.

Goodreads

This was a cute and quick read for anyone with a couple hours to kill.

Dean is a vampire who doesn’t want to be a vampire anymore. How is he going to be un-vampired? By getting a genie in a lamp to do it. When Dean meets his genie he is stunned stupid by her beauty.
Janelle is annoyed to have yet another master who she is sure will be just as self-serving as the last own her. When she starts to get to know Dean and his friends, she realizes they are not the same. They are actually pretty different which makes her nervous.

Dean and Janelle have feelings pretty quickly given that this is a novella. The couple have to deal with her old master looking for her, what to do about the emotions they are feeling for each other and the Grand Master is none too thrilled by Dean and Janelle’s love connection.

Hilariously over the top dialogue which you totally expect from Teresa in her stories!!!

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.

#WOTR19 #Review #NewRelease #Mythological #Paranormal – Love and War, Gods of DC #2 by Tricia Andersen

Love and War (The Gods of DC Book 2)

Jealousy doesn’t look good on Athena, the goddess of war and wisdom. Escaping her half brother’s happiness, Athena takes a prototype military jet for a joyride. An unexpected malfunction crashes it in a Georgia swamp. She wakes up to find herself in the cabin of the sexy yet surly Mack Bradshaw, a tow truck driver who pulled her from the blaze but doesn’t seem to want her or anyone around him. The attraction to Mack is primal, a force she can’t deny. Can she fight the urge to have sex with him or will she give up being one of the three Maiden Goddesses and surrender to him? And what will the rest of the Pantheon have to say about her big, bad savior?
She literally fell from the sky. Mack frees the blonde from the burning wreck of the jet and brings her into his home despite his dislike of virtually everyone. When the fiery beauty is near him, she sets off an ancient need, one his bloodline calls to him to act on. Can she accept his true nature and be his mate? And when an ancient evil threatens to take her from him for eternity, can he partner with her family, the Greek Pantheon, to save her?

Goodreads

I received this book for an honest review.
Ok people you know I love me some Tricia so you won’t be shocked when I said this book was another amazing read. I LOVE how she combine the Hallow Brothers and this series together. Who knew Wolf shifters and Greek Gods could flow together so easily and yet they did.
Now you know I love me some Ares buuuuuuuuut wellllllllll look out for major brooding, utterly sexy Mack. He won my heart over even with Ares being the sexy man that he always is.
This story starts right after book 1 so Ares and Juliette are in a tiff and thanks to sister Athena they are working stuff out. Athena is a bit jelly of her brother and his nymph’s love but she knows that is never to be ya see because …well she is to stay a virgin…uhm yup you read that right. Guess what? I bet she doesn’t stay one long!! LOL
Athena crashes and lands in Mack’s backyard. The mating spell captivates the two and soooooon they are baring THE MARK. Hint that is why I said she won’t stay a Maiden Head Warrior for long!!
The two have a lot to get through. Ya know her being a God and him not believing it. Her being Zeus’s favorite kid and slipping off that pedestal plus there is a demon who wants to stir some trouble.
This story had me turning page after page after page. I could put it down. I loved seeing the two of them come together and then bounce apart while trying to figure everything out. I loved seeing Ares try to help his sister but seeing Aphrodite being in her corner shocked me…and Ares too!!
But serious Hades and Persephone need a book!! OMG seeing them in love….sigh…..made me feel bad for the star crossed lovers.

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Review #MFM #Novella – Trouble with Angels by Maggie Adams

The Trouble with Angels

Christine Baxter was having a helluva night. Her blind date had run out on her and the check. She had run into a mugger trying to steal her purse and succeeding. Finally, her beloved Beetle, Pinkie, had run out of gas on a deserted highway. Her only hope was a dimly lit club sign on the other side of a deep embankment riddled with trash. Apparently, her guardian angel had the night off.

Gabriel Easton and Michael Westmoreland were best friends looking for that special woman to share their lives and their bed. When the beautiful blonde literally fell through their club door, they thought their prayers had been answered. Michael knew she was sent from heaven. Gabriel felt she was hell on heels. Both agreed that she was perfect for them.

And Christine? Well, she thought she was in a lot of trouble.

Goodreads

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

Who doesn’t love a good Ménage???  I don’t know anyone who would pass up the chance to read a couple of hawt Doms falling in love with a sweet, bratty, sassy, and completely clueless submissive!!

I enjoyed reading this very short and quick read by Maggie.  The story line is simple and quick for a lovely afternoon read.

Michael and Gabriel are everything you want to have in Doms.  Christine would totally be me…clueless to the fact they want more from her then just a book keeper and friend.

The drama with the Christine’s ex and the threesome’s trouble because of him gives you a little but of a plot twist but the ending did make me giggle when “the surgeon” and “the pirate” came out to play.

All in all I liked the story and would read more of these characters if Maggie wrote more.

#NewRelease #review – Defiance (Masters of the Shadowlands #13.5) by Cherise Sinclair

Defiance (Masters of the Shadowlands, #13.5)

Z’s day begins with sadness

A phone call from a dying friend leaves psychologist Zachary Grayson determined to fulfill the old survivalist’s request–a send-off that will comfort his grieving sons.

And then turns deadly

The death threat is only the beginning…because the letter isn’t a hoax. Z walks out of his office into a barrage of bullets. He can take being shot at, but when the second shot splinters the empty child-seat in his car, he’s shaken to the core. The horror of what would have happened if his little girl had been there spurs him to action.

Master Z is a Dom, a husband, a father—every instinct drives him to
protect those under his care. When the police can’t catch his stalker, he must take matters into his own hands.

He must keep danger far from those he loves.

Secrecy and distance is the key. The funeral in Alaska is the perfect
location, especially since Z won’t be alone. The survivalist’s sons have grown into men with lethal skills. With their help, he can trap the shooter and keep his family safe.

As long as his impetuous and all-too-observant wife, Jessica, doesn’t
discover he’s using himself as bait.

YES!!  This book was a great sneak peak at one of my favorite Shadowlands couples.  Getting to hang with Master Z, Jessica and baby Sophia was the best. It made me remember why I fell in love with this series to begin with!!!

Master Z is so happy and in love with his family and Jessica.  When he gets the letter and an attempt is made on his life, our dominant loses focus and begins to spiral a bit.  The dynamic relationship of Z and Jessica is one of trust and respect so to see him keeping secrets because he thinks it’s the best thing made me sad.  I understood him COMPLETELY but I was still sad at him for not being honest with the woman he views as his equal everywhere except the bedroom*Wink*  Too bad for him, Z his sprite of a submissive and wife, won’t take no for an answer!!  When the conflict arises, and we are joined by deVeries…yikes I knew it was serious stuff!!  Because he is not one to be messed with.

I enjoyed the story of Z, the Stalker and Jessica but getting to know these new men made my little heart pitter patter!!  Gabe, Caz, Hawk and Bull are going to be definite fan favorites I am sure.  The little snippets we got to see of them men when they are dealing with the loss of their father plus helping out Z …yup this alpha lover was sold!!!

Whenever I ask for BDSM recommendations, I am told the same two words all the time: Cherise Sinclair. ~ Under the Covers Reviews

Authors often say their characters argue with them. Unfortunately, since Cherise Sinclair’s heroes are Doms, she never, ever wins.

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, devastating Dominants, and absolutely sizzling sex. And did I mention the BDSM? Her awards include a National Leather Award, Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice nomination, and Best Author of the Year from the Goodreads BDSM group.

Fledglings having flown the nest, Cherise, her beloved husband, and one fussy feline live in the Pacific Northwest where nothing is cozier than a rainy day spent writing.

#REVIEW – Judge by Alexa Riley

Nora Vaughn is living on the streets and trying to keep under the radar. Luck is on her side one day when the hot stranger she’s been watching drops his keycard and she’s able to get into a safe place. What she doesn’t expect is for him to find her naked in the shower and demanding she repay what she’s stolen.

Smith Prescott is a well-known judge who has worked his entire life to build a reputation. But one look at the young woman in front of him and he’s willing to throw it all away to have her. She’s forcing his hand and his iron will to do the things he’s sworn against. But what’s the point of having all this power if he can’t use it to have her?

Warning: This is quick and dirty and dripping with filth. If you love our books Coach, Mechanic, Thief, and Kingpin, then this one will give you all the feels you’re after. Enjoy some quality time in the judge’s chambers.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Well that was funny, dirty and hot. Oh so hot.

Nora has a skeeze for an uncle and gets placed in his care after her father dies. But he wants a little more than to just be her uncle. Nora finally escapes his ways and meets Smith after spending time at the gym he frequents.

The attraction is real, raw and powerful. He instantly finds the need to protect her and make her his.

Smith tries to hold back his need for Nora but of course, we all know that doesn’t last long.

Read this short little hottie to find out what happens when he finally lets his control down.

#WOTR19 #Review #SweetRomance – A Girlfriend for Christmas by Aly Grady

A Girlfriend For Christmas

When a blizzard prevents teacher Caroline Crawley from getting home for the first Christmas after her mother’s death, a stranger makes her an offer she can’t refuse.

Dr. Colin Pepper is traveling home, but without the non-existent girlfriend his family is expecting.

Can a pretend girlfriend be Colin’s true Christmas miracle?

Goodreads

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

When Aly asked if I would like to review her new “sweet holiday book”, I jumped.  Her books have that feel good vibe you get when reading.

The story is about Caroline who is stuck in the airport trying to get home to her dad in Iowa for Christmas.  She meets and chats with a kind and attractive man who hands her the phone and says “hey talk to my mom would ya.”…yup and that is how this whole story starts.

Colin told a small white lie to his family about bringing a non-existent girlfriend home for the holiday.  When he finds out Caroline’s story, he offers to help her if she helps him.  Upon entering his childhood home, he throws the final grenade at her…she is his liv- in girlfriend!!

Caroline is a trooper, but she enjoys the family time since she is an only child and being around Colin’s mom since she has lost her own mom helps to heal her heart.  There is insta-love but honestly this whole book is just a feel-good story.

We do have some conflict in the form of LAURA….Growl…not a fan of her at all but the end of the story was adorable and I can say I enjoyed reading it the night before Thanksgiving when the Holiday seasons officially kicks off.

Indiana. He said we had to move to Indiana. Was I in for a shock. Actually, no, but it would have been a great story. I love living and raising my family in the Midwest. Living with a racer spurred my imagination and I created The Racer’s Widow series. Since then, I’ve gone on to start the Homecoming series with A Home to Love.

#NewRelease #Giveaway – The Long Shot by Reana Malori


The Long Shot

by Reana Malori

Genre:

Contemporary Romance – Interracial

Blurb

When did she become so bold?

Regina Perkins played by the rules. She did what was expected of her and lived life between the lines. No one would ever accuse her of taking chances. Being a risk-taker was not in her DNA. But, the first time she saw Gavin Carpenter, all those things went out the window. Dating the father of a student wasn’t strictly forbidden and in Regina’s mind, that meant she had permission.

When did he decide to believe in love again?

Gavin Carpenter spent years shielding his heart from women who weren’t any good for him, or his son Riley. After a betrayal at the hands of his son’s mother, he swore off women, and relationships, which suited him just fine. Until she strolled into his life with her soft smile and beguiling eyes. Regina Perkins was the one woman who made him willing to risk it all for one chance of holding her in his arms.
