Review by Twinsie Dee

Lauren Helms has forever been an avid reader from the beginning. After starting a book review website, that catapulted her fully into the book world, she knew that something was missing. Lauren decided to take the plunge and write her first novel.

While working for a video game strategy guide publisher, she decided to mix what she knew best–video games and romance. She decided to take the plunge and joined NaNoWrimo and a month later, she had her first draft.

Lauren lives in Indianapolis, Indiana sharing her love of books and video games with her own Gamer Boy husband and three little baby nerds who will hopefully grow up to share the things that united Lauren and her husband in their own happily ever after.

#ReRelease – Jealousy by Jenna Galicki

Is it possible to love someone of the opposite sex without being in love? Did you ever wonder what it was like to have a soulmate who wasn’t your lover? Find out in Jealousy. Two best friends, a straight woman and a gay man, struggle to find someone to love as much as they love each other, who can handle their intense bond.

He’s the shoulder she leans on.

He worships her.

She shields and protects him.

He watches over her.

They’re soul mates for life.

They’re not lovers; they’re best friends.

Their struggle to find someone who can handle their intense bond is met with a roller coaster of raw emotion, loyalty and heartache.

Follow their journey to find love.

When Heather Cooper married Peter, she thought that she had finally found someone who could handle the inseparable bond she shares with her gay best friend, Justin Perrotta. It’s only a matter of time, however, before jealousy rears its ugly head and Peter’s true feelings emerge. He starts drinking and his erratic behavior threatens their marriage.

Burned by an ex-boyfriend, Justin refuses to open his heart to love again. Wild relationships and one-night stands leave him lonely and unfulfilled, even though he will not admit it. He finds love when he least expects it, but his fear of commitment threatens to ruin the best thing that has ever happened to him.

In this unique read, the reader gets two separate romances Heather’s (m/f) and Justin’s (m/m) and their friendship, which is the real romance.

Praise for Jealousy:

“I fell head over heels in love with the story and the characters. This is a book that I will read again. The friendship between Heather and Justin is stunningly breathtaking.” – Book Happiness

“There were highs and lows, laughter and tears, it was an emotional experience I’m glad I chose to follow through with. There was virtually NO predictability.” – Happily Ever Chapter

“The story just jumps right off the page at you. Author has out done herself with this book.” – Amazon Reader

“What a wonderful read! I loved it and loved how it ended! Brilliantly done!” – The Book Obsessed Momma

“I love a book that sends me on an emotional roller-coaster ride! Anger, frustration, joy, sadness, shock! This book had it all!”  – Amazon Reader

“Jenna Galicki perfectly captures what it is to be someone’s soul mate without being their lover. There is such beauty and brutal truth in the relationship depicted between Heather and Justin.” – Amazon Reader

“Not only are the characters compelling and vivid, the plot twists, unexpected turns and the sheer velocity of the lives these characters live is breath taking.” – Amazon Reader

“Jealousy is a deep story that is fun, sexy, and has just enough twists that when you think you have something figured out, it changes.”  – Illustrious Illusions

I was helping a friend box up books donated to her book store last summer and we found a copy of The Princess Bride. Knowing that story, she gave it to me. It has a special place on my bookshelf.

#WOTR2020 #AudioReview – Jared (The Protectors #2) by Teresa Gabelman

The VC Warriors are an elite group of vampire who protect innocents, whether human or those of their own race. Jared Kincaid, along with other Warriors, are shocked when a fiery red head with a gun and attitude, bring news of young teens being turned into an army of half-breed vampires capable of taking out all VC Warriors.

Breaking into the famed VC Warriors compound was definitely not the smartest thing Tessa Pride has ever done, but she will do anything for her brother, Adam. The Warriors held the one person she knew was responsible for her brother being turned into a half-breed and nothing will stop her from getting what she needs to help her brother, not even a Warrior whose eyes could make her melt with one look.

Jared and Tessa join forces in a desperate scramble to find who is responsible. With a war between Warriors and half-breeds brewing, suspicions of traitors in their midst put the lives of everyone involved on the line.

Goodreads

Amazon

I read this series back in 2014 but now that the audio books are coming out I am loving listening to them. It is amazing the small things you forget about until you hear them and are like OH Yeah I remember that now.  I enjoyed listening to Damon so much I could not wait to listen to Jared’s book.

Tessa and her brother, a half-breed, broke in and kidnapped the very person Jared was interrogating. She even chained him to a chair and got all up in his face about her brother. I love a tough woman that can hold her own and stand up to any man or Vamp in this case. The warriors quickly realized Tessa and the half-breeds need protection from the evil that was out to get them back. Tessa and Jared cave to their attraction while Jared is looking after her, her brother and other half-breeds.

I loved all the twist this book had there were things I didn’t see coming. I loved the side story of Tessa’s brother and his love interest. I was great seeing Tessa stand up for Nicole against the female vamps when she didn’t even know Nicole. The whole thing with Pam broke my heart. I just love Tessa’s grandpa.

Tessa is bound and determined to protect her brother and grandpa, then you have Jared who is determined to protect Tessa things sometimes don’t go as either intended. The ending was great with Nicole, Damon, Tessa and Jared that whole scene brought tears to my eyes.  I loved this book from start to finish the ups and down and twists were great.

I’m so enjoying listening to this series and remembering the little things I have forgotten about. The narrator does a great job with all the different characters. Now on to the next book.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Teresa Gabelman, writes paranormal romance and contemporary romance with a side of humor in each story. Her heroines are strong and independent keeping the sexy alpha heroes on their toes.

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!

#WOTR2020 #AudioReview – Damon (The Protectors #1) by Teresa Gabelman

Damon DeMasters is a vampire warrior who has taken an oath to not only protect his own kind, but humans as well. Crimson Rush is the new drug on the streets, and it’s their duty to find who is behind the selling of vampire blood and stop it.

A social worker, Nicole Callahan, fights for the right of every child placed in her care. There’s a war now, as vampires have stepped out into the spotlight taking their place in society, and the children are at the heart of it all.

Damon and his fellow warriors have been ordered by the Vampire Council to train Nicole and her colleagues against the dangers they now face in their new world. Even as sparks fly and tensions mount, Nicole and Damon depend on each other to protect the children of both races.

Goodreads

Amazon

I read this book back in March 2014. Teresa has just released the audios and I am so enjoying going back and listening to them.  I could not believe how much of the minor things I forgotten over the years. I have to say I still love these warriors today as much as I did 5 years ago.

Nicole is a social worker that takes her job seriously. She is determined to keep the kids safe and it doesn’t matter if they are human or vampire.
Damon, one of the Vampire Council Warriors, was sent to train the social workers on how to protect themselves while doing their jobs. The sparks start to fly as soon as Nicole and Damon first see each other. However, Damon does not want to get involved and attached so Nicole comes up with a “friends with benefits” option.

I love that Nicole is tough and stands up to these big tough Vampires, never backing down never giving up and has no issues getting in their faces. Things start to go bad when Nicole and the others realize there are some pretty mean people out to get her because she is doing her job so well. Damon pulls the “I’m getting too close so I’ll push her away” routine and right after she lays her feelings out on the table.

I also enjoyed the close friendship almost sisterly like relationship that Nicole and Pam have. Seeing Nicole, Pam, and Jared interacting was great. Pam and Jared always made me smile or laugh. I would get aggravated with Damon he would be so sweet and nice and then go all Alpha male thinking he was protecting Nicole but only end up hurting her feelings. Here again Nicole always called him out on it and stood up to anyone she felt was doing wrong by her. I loved that she had pet turtles, Ren and Stimpy, and not the typical cat or dog. The way Nicole collects the money for the kids Christmas party was a gag.

Like i said enjoyed this book today as much as I did when I read it. I am so ready for Jared. The narrator did a wonderful job his voice changes were enough that you realized it was a different character.  I am so ready to listen to all these warriors stories and catch up on all of them.

A little something for everyone. 🙂 I also do makeup for film and television so I like to incorporate some of that behind the scenes stuff into my stories.

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

Meeting readers! I love to see how you guys react to things in person and what you really love.

Stephen King

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

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

I have some of my mom’s old books which are special because she’s not here anymore.

#Review – Lone Survivor (Last of Us #2) by Nikki Landis

Lone Survivor (Last of Us, #2)

Zombies!

The world has gone to ***, and the zombie apocalypse is now responsible for wiping out humanity.

One girl believes she’s all alone and the world’s last hope for survival . . . but is she the key, a threat, or something else entirely?

A GROUP OF SURVIVORS … must find a way to live together when a terrible virus turns deadly. Two different strands determine what type of zombie is unleashed upon those lucky enough to escape the initial outbreak. One year later survival is the only objective . . . until the mutations begin to change and humanity becomes the scariest monster of all.

– Bailee & Sawyer –


Goodreads


Amazon

All things ZOMBIE! We have a reason why the world has gone to hell in a handbasket! And now…how do we fix it??? There is a reason the zombies are the way they are, and the way the zombies are evolving will make the geek in you get excited! We have so much more in this story about the hows and whys that make the zombies. EXCELLENT!

This is Bailee’s and Sawyer’s story. This starts out with Bailee and her dealing with her own turmoil. She has been on her own for a year. That’s right folks, an entire year. Feeling like she was alone, the lone survivor. Along with her own turmoil we find out that she is the niece of the man that found this virus that made zombies. While out scavenging she is overrun by zombies and is saved by Sawyer. Sawyer happens to be an alpha soldier that has had a team out looking for Bailee…but she does not know this. There are lots of secrets and Sawyer, along with his team, don’t divulge these with Bailee. Bailee is brought to their compound and is made to feel like one of the group. A budding romance begins between the two …then things go awry. Traitor? Enemy? Zombie? Crazy chaos!

This story starts giving you some essential information to get started, it gets you drawn in, gives you something new to grasp onto with the zombie apocalypse. It’s fast paced and an incredible page turner right to the very end. Love always finds a way but then sacrifice always gets in the way. This is a fantastic story with just the right amount of everything put into one story. There really is something for everyone with this. Even if you aren’t a zombie fanatic you will absolutely enjoy this story. I can’t wait for the next installment. Bring it on!

#WOTR20 #AuthorSpotlight – Rochelle Bradley

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

I’m Rochelle Bradley and I write romantic comedy because there’s already too much crap in the world and I feel it needs more laughter and smiles.

When in observation mode I’m quiet, however, my mouth is usually open with an encouraging glass-is-half-full pun or, quite possibly, my foot.

I can’t cook or sew and consider myself undomesticated. I do like to bake and make a mean BTS (Better Than Sex) cake.

I am a Bearcat, a Buckeye, an interior decorator, and fluent in sarcasm.

I live in southwest Ohio, near Dayton, but I grew up in Cincinnati. I have two kitties that you’ll see on my social media often.

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

When I’m home, I love black tea, cafe mochas (coffee with hot chocolate), or wine.
I have to listen to music without lyrics or else I’m singing along or wondering why the artist wrote it. I prefer classical and epic movie soundtracks but will listen to spa too.
Wherever the cats are…there I am. Bed, sofa, table, or desk. I sit like a human though.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting new people and seeing old friends. Books!!!

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

James Rollins. I picked one of his books up at a yard sale and my life hasn’t been the same as an author since.

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

I”m always working, usually editing, writing, or marketing. The only thing I do consistently is meet with authors twice a week to write. I am definitely a pantser and lists are my friend.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

This past fall I went to Canada for an event. I played author/reader dating game and had a blast. Though it was only two minutes long I got to know people. Since the event was a long weekend by the time it was over, I felt I had made life long friends.

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

The Double D Ranch proof. Yes, it’s my book, but it reminds me I can do anything and dreams do come true.
