#WOTR20 #NewRelease #Menage – With Us, Next Generation Book #2 by JM Walker

With Us (Next Generation, #2)

-Shade-

She was young.
Sweet.
Feisty.
But then there was him.
We had been best friends for years. We lived together. Rode together. Shared women. Together. And it still wasn’t enough. Not for him and especially not for me.

-Sunny-

He was mine.
I was his.
She was ours.
Meadow Rodriguez strutted into our lives and looked at us like we were all that mattered.
While I wanted to dominate her, he wanted to submit, and she wanted both.
I took control, giving her everything she needed and at the same time, grew closer with Shade. My best friend. My partner. My life. Although we were close, there was still a wedge between us.
I was terrified to give him what he needed.
My heart.

-Meadow-

Sunny was intense.
Shade hid.
I was new.
They were in love but wouldn’t admit it.
Guilt resonated on Sunny’s shoulders.
The weight of Shade’s feelings rested on his.
And I was the glue that would bring them together.
But little did I know, that I would end up falling in love.
With both of them.

I receive this book from the author for an honest review.Oh hells bells. Meadow girl……I wanna be ya so bad!! She is some kinda awesome girl who meets her match with our two grumpy old men, Shade and Sunny.

Meadow has always been the loner and has always been into baking vs dealing with her feelings. When she has to let go of a friend’s with benefits situation she stumbles into the two bikers when she was having a night out with her friends. Piper and Jaron steal away, Gigi is wasted drunk, and Meadow finds herself in the lap of Sunny and Shade.

The guys are instantly drawn to her sass and spirit. They can’t believe someone so young would want to deal with these two old men who are best friends, for sure, but also secretly in love with the other. Sunny cant wrap it around his head his feelings for Shade. Shade has known since day 1 that Sunny is the guy for him. The two are very willing to share a woman but deal with their feelings no so much.

When Meadow joins the duo, everything just clicks. She is what the men need to open fully and commit to the trio and to each other.

As usual, JM throws some amazing twists and a big fat suck punch to your gut. But I think these 3 will make a top reading list for everyone. The sex was hot but the opening up and the intimacy was amazing to read.

#NewRelease – Redemption (Revenge Series #2) by Christine Besze

Redemption (Revenge Series #2)

Two years I’ve searched.
Two years I’ve waited.
Two years I’ve longed to hold her.
Two years I’ve been patient.
Time’s up.
I’m bringing her home, where she belongs.
Bombs, car chases, and bar fights be damned.

Axel Savage has lived his life by one code and one code alone—family above all else. Sometimes those closest to you are the ones that stick the knife the deepest.

Kelsey Loren thought she left all the trouble behind and started a new life someplace safe, someplace faraway from it all. The truth is the monster she ran away from is the only one that can save her.

Redemption is coming and he’s bringing Hell with him. He’ll show them what it means to mess with a Savage.

She can fight it all she wants, but a Savage is exactly what she is. One he’ll die to protect—even if it means killing one of her own to do it.

***This book is a standalone and contains mature/graphic subject matter. For readers 18+***

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

OHHH YEAH!!  I have been waiting for this book.  I will say you need to read book 1 to fully understand the story here.  I know the blurb says it is a standalone, but I would advise reading book 1 to not be a little lost in the story.

First up can I say the ladies in the story are AMAZING and strong.  They are just the right women these broken men need to be whole again.  Who doesn’t love an alpha man who but also doesn’t love a strong female to help said male??  If you love that then you will love this series.

The Savage Brothers are so hot!!  I mean yup I will take one.  Axel and Kelsey were together in the past, but she got scared and ran. Welp Axel is Mr. Protective and is not going to let her go!  Kelsey is in trouble and the brothers are going to go and save her from the drama and action to happen in the story.

Serious the chemistry was amazing and I can’t wait for the next brothers book to hit my kindle!!

Christine Besze is a writer, reader, mother, wife, and lover of all things wine. She lives in her own world of crazy most days, because the voices inside her head hold some great conversation. When she does have to come back to reality and act like an actual grown-up, she spends her time with her handsome hubby Z, their two gorgeous gingers and their mini-herd of German Shepherds. Born in sunny Southern California, she recently made the big leap with her family to the East Coast and couldn’t be happier. You’ll still find her in flip-flops—with a full glass of wine—all year round.

#NewRelease #Paranormal #Shifters #MFM – Healing of the Wolf, The Wild Hunt Legacy Book #5 by Cherise Sincair

Healing of the Wolf (The Wild Hunt Legacy Book 5)

A decade in captivity tore away all hope.

But Margery never lost her resolve to help the sick. The village she’d hoped to serve as banfasa, caring for the ill and injured, is long gone. Humans captured the young shifters and killed the adults. Finally rescued, she has a chance at her dreams—at least for meaningful work. With her leg crippled and her face scarred, she knows she has no hope of ever finding love.

Tynan is ready to find their mate.

After years away from his littermate as a police officer among humans, Tynan is finally home, a beta in the wolf pack, and serving his people as a law officer. Assigned as Margery’s mentor in the pack, he patiently works to earn the skittish little wolf’s trust. Her captivity has left her with problems, including a fear of uniforms. But he’s a fixer at heart—and he’s starting to want more from the gentle female than just friendship.

Donal has no intention of making a family.

Separated from his littermate for years, Donal has remained unmated, devoting his energies to healing. Believing ugly rumors about their new neighbor—a banfasa—he won’t have her in his clinic or his life—no matter what his newly returned brother wants.

But a feral shifter’s attack on Tynan shows Margery in a whole different light. She’s levelheaded, compassionate, sweet—and far too appealing. What male could resist her?

But even as the brothers work to win their mate, cruel forces move to crush their entire clan.


Goodreads


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

I seriously LOVE this series.  I love how the series is ever evolving.  The addition of the Bad guys who are really bad guys was great reading.

When the book starts, we know Margery has had it rough.  To see her fear the good guys saving her but also worry for the young and the hurt lets you see inside her soul.    She is blessed with the Mothers Goodness.  She truly is a healer in her own right.

When we see her striking out on her own after realizing her new pack was not the right pack for her or any woman, it was great to see her embrace her new life in the Zeb and Shay and Alec and Colum.  Plus, revisiting with the old pack pairings is always fun times.

Littlermates and total opposites Donal and Tynan are happy to finally be together again after 10 years.  They know they are going to live their life together and Tynan hopes take a mate together.  Donal is not so into the whole mate thing.  He can’t imagine any women keeping his attention for that long.  Plus, all the women are more interested in his title vs the man.

The men see Margery, and both are interested.  Unfortunately, Donal takes the word of the wrong people and won’t give her the time of day.  Tynan is not as interested in others words and falls head over heals for the stubborn and unsure wolf.  When he makes sure to be her mentor, he helps her overcome some deep scars.

As the novel continues, we see Donal realize what an idiot he is and run headfirst into a time with Margery.  Tynan and her bond is strong and now she is bonding with the town healer as well.

We see some of her past come into play, more bad guys come, stupid males being stupid, and jealous women causing issues.

I admit I really want a book for Oliver.  Margery’s brother seems so lost a good HEA could totally do him well!!

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, alpha males, and absolutely sizzling sex.

I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. But although we were together less than two days and lived on opposite sides of the country, love can’t be corralled by time or space.

We’ve now been married for many, many years. (And he still looks down my swimsuit tops.)

Nowadays, I live in the west with this obnoxious, beloved husband and a seventy-pound lap-puppy. I’m a gardener, and I love nurturing small plants until they’re big and healthy and productive…and ripping defenseless weeds out by the roots when I’m angry. I enjoy thunderstorms, collecting eggs from the chickens, and visiting the local brewery for the darkest, maltiest beer on tap. My favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch next to the master of my heart, watching the fire, reading, and…well…if you’re reading my books, you obviously know what else happens in front of fires.

#WOTR20 #NewRelease #Review #Giveaway – Love and Neckties, Rockland Falls Book #4 by Lacey Black

Love and Neckties (Rockland Falls Book 4)

For Samuel Grayson, everything is black or white. As a funeral director, there’s no room for in-between. He’s accustomed to dealing with life and death, though he’s definitely more comfortable with the latter. Especially when it comes to a chaotic, petite, feisty ball of energy. Freedom Rayne. Samuel’s pretty sure her goal is to make his life hell, or so it appears. When Samuel boards a flight to Las Vegas for his sister’s wedding, the last thing he expects is to share it with the one woman who drives him crazy.

Freedom is eccentric and completely content with it. Floating around from job to job, she finds peace and tranquility in everything she does, including tormenting poor, uptight Samuel Grayson. When she finds herself on the same flight as him for her best friend’s wedding, she sees this as the perfect opportunity to get under his skin, something she tries to do every chance she gets. The problem is the more time she spends with him, the more she likes him.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not for Samuel and Freedom. Will they be able to forget about their trip when they return to Rockland Falls? What if one mistake turns out to be the best thing ever?

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

LAWD!!!  Sammy and Free!!  You two have been killing me this series!!  I mean GAH!!  I was so excited when I learned that Free was going to be Samuel’s HEA because honestly, I cannot imagine anyone else with him.  As opposites as they are, they fit together perfectly in so many ways.

Samuel has always been annoyed yet intrigued by his sisters’ best friend who was essentially adopted into the family.  He, however, also couldn’t stand her constant teasing and chaos of a world.  Samuel is Mr. White and Black.  Everything has a place and life isn’t messy.  Life is orderly.  Boy does Free rock his world right off its axis.

Freedom is the queen of the hippie life.  She doesn’t eat meat.  She doesn’t believe in animal testing on products.  She is the most reliable if not slightly late friend you can ever want so why is she so attracted to her sister older brother.  The man who wears ties to family functions…never mind what those ties do to her libido!!!

These two have fought the chemistry so long so when they are thrown together in the Vegas for Samuel’s sister/Free’s best friend Harper’s wedding as the only single friends, they kiiiinda lose control and kiiiind awake up a mess.  Apparently, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas!!

I loved seeing Free be so sure in the decision to stay with Samuel and convince him she was the right person for him.  Seeing Samuel so conflicted but stepping out of his norm to TRY this life with Free was adorable.  I loved the scene with him in the shop…hilarious!!  The entire scene cracked me up.

The conflict of the story made my eyes a bit leaky because we all wanted to punch Samuel.  He has lived by his strict controlled world.  He is having a hard time learning to trust his heart and not follow his brain.  Free is the most amazing character in the series and when we finally got to SEE what her life was before this meeting Harper and her family, it was sad.  We understand why family is so important to her and why she clings to those she loves so fiercely.

The epilogue was amazing, and the bonus epilogue made my heart sing!!  I was so happy by that little chapter because …well we all needed to see this happen and see the HEA!!

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.

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

Another hilarious installment from Teresa in her Robyn Peterman Universe.

I love that each book could be read as a standalone but let’s be honest, you need to read them all in order to fully get the situation and previous interactions of the characters.

This book we finally get to see a bit of Wicked’s very deeply hidden past.  We learn where she cam from and the witches she grew up with.  They are not the nicest witches when they are dark witches.

We see hottie shifter Thorne protecting his family from a threat to Wicked, Rose and Jamison’s futures…PURRR he is a yummy alpha male for sure!!

We see Bruce making epic boo boos knocking up a random cat….makes ya wonder if Bruce the man whore familiar will settle down???  DOUBTFUL but it would be fun to see.

Honestly, I just love this short novel and all the smiles it brings.  If you need a laugh or ten then this series is for you and each edition adds to the hilarity.

#WOTR20 #CoverReveal #Paranormal #MMA #Shifters #Family #Excerpt #Giveaway – Featherweight, Hallow Brothers Book #6 by Tricia Andersen

Title: Featherweight (Hallow Brothers,6) Author: Tricia Andersen Genre: Paranormal/ MMA Romance Release Date: July 19, 2020 Cover Designer: Tricia Andersen Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

He was just a hapless victim in a bar. At least that was what vampire hunter Dakota Ross thought until the sexy smartass she was drawn to protect was able to keep toe to toe with her as they fought. When she finds a strange tattoo etched into her back after a night of intense, passionate sex, she discovers that he is Ezekiel Hallow, one of seven werewolf brothers. They team up to find Black, who has killed her husband and has the Book of Elvesayd, an artifact Ezekiel desperately needs. Each step on their journey becomes more deadly as they get closer to Black. How far will they go to find the Book? Can Dakota stop Black from taking the life of another man she loves?

It seemed a little odd to Ezekiel that there were only a handful of people in the place but then again, he didn’t know just how far off the map he’d wandered. He sauntered to the bar and plopped down on a stool. Ordering a beer from the bartender he glanced around. A chill ran up his spine. Every set of eyes in the bar were focused on him. A couple guys grinned at him like he was prey.

It was then that he caught sight of something sharp and pearly white in the glow of the neon.

A pair of fangs. Fuck.

“What is it with you guys and bars, huh? I always pictured that you would be more wine and cheese snobs than canned beer and pretzels,” he questioned.

The two playing pool chuckled as they set their pool sticks down on the felt covered surface and prowled towards him. The one on the left, with black rumpled hair, untucked dress shirt, and wrinkled dress slacks smirked at him. “We guys? You act as if you know us?”

Ezekiel rose to his feet, nudging his beer aside. He scanned for exits other than glass doors. There were none. This place had to violate at least a dozen fire codes. Did they have fire codes in the backwoods? “I know your kind. You have distant cousins in Minnesota that are making my family’s life a living hell right now.”

The vampires frowned and the one dressed like he had left his soul at the office gave a hardy sniff to the stale air of the bar. He shrugged. “You wouldn’t be the first werewolf I’ve drained dry. Your blood tastes like shit, though.”

“Great to know.”

Before Ezekiel could drop into stance to defend himself, the bell on the door tinkled a greeting. The entire room turned to see who had walked in. He cursed under his breath. His odds weren’t great as it was and now, he had to defend someone?

Except there was no one there but a small puddle on the floor left by the storm outside. A second later two of the vampires closest to the door dropped to their knees, writhing in pain.

That was when Ezekiel saw her. Jet black hair flowed down past her ivory face and down her back. Eyes so dark they could have been mistaken as violet glanced at him. Her whole body, garbed in black, stiffened at the sight of him.

It was the woman in his dreams, the one that had made him jack off so many times before he hit the road on this trip. His cock stiffened at the sight of her. It was a really bad time for a hard-on.

“Take cover,” she demanded.

Ezekiel smiled at her, reassuringly. “I’ve got this, sweetheart.”

She glowered at him as her fist flew out, dropping another vampire to the ground. “I’m sorry. Did you just call me sweetheart?”

He bit back a groan as the two pool playing vampires charged him. For a moment, he thought the distraction was going to fuck up his fighting style. As one body thudded on top of the other, he let out a sigh of relief.

“Do you not like being called sweetheart?” he countered.

Her hand dropped to her thigh to produce a wicked looking knife. She pointed it at him. “I am not your sweetheart. Call me that again and it’ll be the last word you ever mutter.”

#Review #2ndChance #FriendsToLovers – Until You Fall in Love by Lyssa Layne

Until You Fall In Love

Single mom Jordan Glastetter doesn’t know how she’d survive without her best friend, Abram Tomko. He’s the father her son never knew and he’s the rock she’s always leaned on. When Abram’s father suffers a heart attack, it’s Abram’s turn to depend on Jordan, finally seeing her as the woman she’s become and not the little girl he grew up with. Will they risk their friendship for a chance at love?

The PreQual is Roses with Thorn HERE

Goodreads

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

Oh man where do I begin!!??  Lyssa, sister!!  Abram was such a hot mess in Robbie and Jordan’s book I was really wondering how you could fix him but fix him you sure did!

Jordan and Abram have known each other all their lives.  Jordan falls in love and married Robbie who is Abram’s bestie/wing man.  As soon as their life picks up and moves forward, Robbie is killed in the military.  This story picks p 5 years after his death.  Their story is the prequal to this story.

Jordan is a dedicated mom, rancher, friend and is slowly freaking out that the feelings she has for her best friend, Abram, are slipping into the “more than friends” category.

Abram has watched Jordan every day her entire life but when situations change, and he comes back after helping his sister, his eyes open to the woman she has become. He soon realizes he can’t live with out her in his life. PERIOD.

The couple are essentially raising her son as THEIR son. They are starting to realize there is a lot more going on then just best friends…which everyone else sees but they are both to dumb to see until their world is shook when Pop, Abram’s Father, has a heart attack.  The thought of losing his pushes them both into re-evaluating things.

Now of course love can’t come easy with the two for them.  They are dealing with her fears of finally moving on past her dead husband of 5 years.  They are dealing with other people being interested in the pair plus the fear of what if this doesn’t work.  There were times I wanted to smack Jordan upside the head and shake her senseless for thinking less of Abram’s feelings for her.  Then toward the end of the story I was gonna nut check Abram for being such a jackass over something that happened with Jordan…sigh…but mainly I loved the journey these two take!!

#WOTR20 #NewRelease #2ndChance – Mine for Now by Cindy Tanner

Mine for Now by [Cindy Tanner]

Ran Walker can’t outrun his demons. After watching the woman he loved marry another man, he’s given up on finding that happiness for himself. Until a chance encounter with a fiery redhead challenges everything he thought he knew…

Elle Sullivan is done bending to the expectations of others. Now, she’s determined to live life by her own terms. Even if that means taking a chance on the burly biker that helped her fix a flat tire. He’s the exact opposite of any man she’s ever dated—yet the heat between them is undeniable.

Can Ran and Elle shrug off the shackles of his haunting past and her constricting family name to find the freedom of a blissful life together? Or will the ill-fitting facades of who they are supposed to be force them apart?


Goodreads



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

Friends!!  Ran has been on my mind since I read When you Where Mine back last fall.  I mean this dude is a hot mess of loyalty and family but also heartbreak and feeling less then.

You don’t need to read the previously mentioned book BUT to know Ran and his heart, I highly suggest it. When Elle comes and knocks him on his big burly ass, you will appreciate it all the more.

Ran has only loved Harper and after the heartbreak of losing her to Ash, he has given up on finding anyone.  He knows he is a felon and who wants to marry or be with a guy like that?  He is gruff and rough around the edges plus he is totally pushing away all his friend.  But he is definitely the one guy you can trust to keep a woman safe.

Elle is over it all.  After walking away from her fiancée and starting life over in this small town, she too is over dating. When an accidental tasing of Ran leads Elle to wonder about the hot stranger, they both think they will never see the other.

When Elle comes barreling into his life by helping and befriending his sister Nona, who also is a hot mess and I am dying to know her story with Ben, the two start a “friends with benefits” relationship.  Each is afraid of the day the other will call it quits but is secretly falling head over heels with the other.

When miscommunication and self-doubt cause the two to separate, I was ready to nut punch Ran.  I was glad to see Harper come and knock some sense into him with the help of Ash.  These two are a perfect fit and they need to open their eyes and stop worrying about the fears in their heart.

I am such a huge fan of these characters.  I admin the previous book was one of my favorite last year so this book was a very anticipated book by me.  I can saw 110% this book did not let me down.  I loved getting to know Ran and all his “faults” even more.  But I really loved the sassy and fiery red head named Elle who helped him overcome his fear of being less then.  But yo, I really freaking loved Gigi!!!!
