#TwiniseDee #Review #ShortStory #PartofaSeries Resolution: Bad Girl by Angel Devlin

I’m tired of being a good girl.

My love life is non-existent and now my best friend wants to set me up with a nice guy.

I want a man to push me against the wall with unbridled lust, not tell me stories about fluffy kittens.

Then the message comes from my old sorority president

“Remember, ladies. Do it. Whatever it is you want to do. Wherever you have wanted to go. Whatever you want to try, to taste, to feel, to live… do it. This is our year.”

It’s New Years eve, the night is young, and so am I. It’s time to let my hair down. This girl is going bad and she needs a bad boy to see the New Year in with.

And there’s one at the bar…

this was a great short story. Audrina is a good girl that is bored with the way her life is going and how her past year had been, so what better way to reinvent yourself then on New Years Eve. that is exactly what shes going to do turn into the bad girl for a night. Tom was just a random guy at the bar that Rina (her bad girl name) caught the eye off and well the rest is for you to read and find out a bad girl cant give everything away

#WOTR20 #AttendingAuthor #Standalone #Novella First Comes Love (Lovelly Series Novella) by Clara Stone

Some loves are undeniable. Some burn with the heat of summer.

When Homer Lovelly pulled over to help a stranded damsel in distress, he never expected he’d meet his soul mate. But from the moment Claire clocked him in the head with her boot—and then kissed him—he knew she was it.

She’d be his undoing.

Wild, sexy, and fearless, Claire is intoxicating. She’s also leaving at the end of summer, a few short weeks away. Homer knows he shouldn’t fall for her. He also knows he doesn’t have a choice. And with September rising fast on the horizon, he’s almost out of time.

The question is, can he convince Claire that what he feels is more than a summer fling, or will he watch as the woman he’s meant to marry walk out of his life forever?

Scroll up and one click today to see why fans of The Notebook and The Summer Boyfriend will fall in love with this steamy, summer-fling romance.

all Clarie wanted was a few weeks of harmless summer fun, and a possible hook up here and there. when on her way to a party her uncle’s truck broke down and when a hot as hell cowboy stops to help her she thinks why not start the night off right. Homer was just trying to help a pretty lady out little did he know that he could catch feelings and one thing that Clarie doesn’t do is catch feeling. Will her mind get changed, or will they just be a hot summer fling and go their own ways once she leaves. this is once again another amazing story that follows another member of the Lovelly family. i love these books and this family.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Clara Stone writes YA/NA Contemporary Romance and Paranormal Romance stories and is a complete sucker for sweet, memorable kisses. She strongly believes that true love conquers EVERYTHING, along with a tub of Ice cream!

When she isn’t reading or writing or dancing, much to the embarrassment of her husband and two kids, she’s probably watching Supernatural and The Walking Dead. So, if she sounds like your cup of syrup to your pancakes (or waffles… no favorites here), then give her a “Follow” to any number of social media kingdoms she’s built and stay updated of her upcoming releases, book sales, and book recommendations!

#WOTR20 #AttendingAuthor #MC #PartofaSeries #SeriesStarter Grit (King’s Harlots #1) by J.M Walker

He refuses to fall in love.

He was born alone and he will die alone. Or, at least he thought so until now.

Vice-One is all he knows. His squad. His brothers. The men he spends every day protecting. He is empty and only one person can fill this void. This darkness.

Meanwhile, Genevieve Gold makes it clear he should stay away when she is everything he craves.

She is lost.

Her heart has been ripped out; stomped on…crushed into tiny pieces, leaving only a gaping hole behind.

King’s Harlots is all she has. Her club. Her sisters. Her life. But something is missing until he shows up.

Angel Rodriguez is everything she hates but everything she needs.

Putting differences aside, they will work together to bring down a malevolent force threatening to rip them apart…

These two fight their inner demons and work together to help Each other bring the best out of themselves. There are so many ups and downs, twist and turns that keep you guessing till the very last page.

#REVIEW – Defy (Sinners of Saint 0.5) by LJ Shen

Defy is a short novella. It is a prequel to Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1) and can be read as a complete standalone. Now an international bestseller.

My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make.
I slept with my student, a senior in high school.
Multiple times.
I had multiple orgasms.
In multiple positions.
I slept with my student and I enjoyed it.
I slept with my student and I’d do it all over again if I could turn back time.
My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal’s office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.
My name is Melody Greene, and I did something bad because it made me feel good.
Here is why it was totally worth it.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:
So I read this book after reading Vicious and while it didn’t make a huge difference, I did get some spoilers. So I highly suggest reading this one first. I believe this little book was written for an anthology and holy moly was it ever hot.
Jaime. Dude, where the heck did you come from???? And what an impact you made!
Melody is a teacher. Correction, Melody is Jaime’s teacher and the insane chemistry they have is off the charts. I do love me some age gap romances and this one definitely raises the bar.
Defy is HOT. DELICIOUS. And oh so sinful.
LJ sure knows how to write some yummy sex scenes. 😉
I also enjoyed that we got to see more of Vicious and his douchey ways and also the rest of the guys. I do wish I would have read this first but oh well. Live and learn.
The only thing I wish was that it was longer. But that’s just me being greedy.

Goodreads


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

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

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

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

#REVIEW – Vicious (Sinners of Saint Book 1) by L.J. Shen

Emilia

They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true.
The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares.
He is a brilliant lawyer.
A skilled criminal.
A beautiful liar.
A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover.
Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.

Vicious

She is a starving artist.
Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom.
Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down.
She paid the price.
Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate.
That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t.
So she hates me. Big fucking deal.
She better get used to me.

Vicious a complete standalone and a part of the Sinners of Saint series

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

So I had seen this book floating around for awhile now. And then LJ blew up with the rest of the series and now the kid’s books. Well, I actually picked up the first book to the kid’s and stopped reading cause it made me twitch that I wasn’t starting with the parents. So I went all the way back to the beginning. The OG of the characters. The first HotHole. And…uh…wow. So I’m all for grumpy, brooding men but Vicious or Baron (which I really like that name by the way) took it to a whole other level. I was chatting with an author friend about her grumpiest hero and she said that Vicious reminded me of her character who I absolutely adore. That’s when I knew I would love this book.

First off…Vicious is mean. He’s outright cruel to Millie but as the book goes on, you begin to understand why. Not that it makes it any more right but he atones for his sins. Eventually.

Vicious is one of the HotHoles. Which is four rich guys, or kids rather, who run All Saints High. They run the school, the town, basically everyone around them. They party, play football, have this game called Defy that sounds pretty brutal if you ask me. And did I mention they party? Where were these kids when I was in school?

The book also jumps from the past to the present in the beginning of the book but as you learn about how Millie and Vicious meet, it ends up sticking with the present situation. Ten years later and Vicious is on a mission. To get his girl and avenge a loved one.

I really enjoyed this book. Also, this cover. Now that I read the book, the cover makes complete sense.

#Review, #HoP, #Contemporary, House of Payne: Styx by Stacy Gail

Sydney used to make plans. All her life she’d trained to be a ballerina, but that “plan” had turned out to be nothing more than a pipe dream. Reality now consisted of hunting down petty thieves and refusing to make any more pie-in-the-sky plans for her life. That’s why she’s never approached the sexiest man she’s ever laid eyes on. Never again would she be crushed by pointless dreams.
 
Fate, however, has plans for her.
 
Styx Hardwick isn’t big on plans. As a tattooist at House Of Payne, he’s the black sheep in a family full of pragmatic cops. Now that his twin brother’s getting hitched, all eyes turn to him, the last of the single Hardwick siblings. Getting through his twin’s wedding is gonna be hell.
 
Or so he thinks.
 
When a pocket-sized goddess crashes into him with terror in her eyes, Styx’s world turns upside-down. Even scared out of her mind, Sydney is still the hottest thing to have ever graced his life. He offers her a deal—pretend to be his girlfriend until the wedding, while he does his damnedest to protect her from the danger closing in.
 
As a plan, it’s almost foolproof.
 
Almost.
 


 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book


OMG!! Welcome back to Chicago and the awesome House of Payne gang!!  
Styx is the “King of Coverups” as he likes to say, at the most awesomest tattoo studio in the world House of Payne.
Sydney is a secret shopper for a chain of grocery stores in town.  Their meet cute is totally crazy!!  Hint it has to do with her job, but they don’t meet in a store. I can’t get over the way they meet, it’s totally unique and crazy!
Sydney is so good at catching shop lifters at  her job as a secret shopper, that someone is trying to KILL HER and she runs into Styx literally to hide.  See totally crazy!!
What unfolds is a crazy story of a “pretend” couple, a family of cops,  and near death misses.  The only thing that I didn’t like is that we never get to see Styx let Sydney’s crappy family have it.
Crap!! I almost forgot to tell you about the most amazing scene,   a scene straight out of my daydreams with my favorite HoP artist Max and favorite ex hit an for the Bratva Polo!!!  This whole dang book is full of drool worthy moments so make sure you have a towel ready, LOL!!!  Stacy Gail makes sure that there is lots of hotness, love, and funny in this series and that is why it’s one of my favorites.
I so can’t freaking wait for Loki!!!

#WOTR20 #5YearFamily #NewRelease #PartOfASeries #Paranormal #Vampires – Vampire’s Desire (Guardians Book 6) by Valerie Twombly

Vampire's Desire (Guardians Book 6)

He does not trust her…

Lucan has one chance to save himself before the darkness he wields consumes him. The vampire would rather damn his soul to Hell, than mate his enemy’s sister. Fate hasn’t left him much choice however, because it prophesies Sabin to end the brutal war on humanity. The longer he waits, the further into the shadows he slips and the closer they all come to being destroyed.

She will betray him…

Sabin experiences daily torture ever since her brother locked her in his hellish dungeon. The only thing that keeps her sane, is the knowledge there is one vampire destined to save her. Even when Lucan rejects the idea they could ever become mated, she knows the fate of the world depends on them being together.

He is darkness; she is light, yet they need each other to survive. Evil is preparing to destroy Sabin, and with each passing second the enemy grows stronger. Time is running out and with the Phoenix God missing, Sabin cannot fulfill the prophesy. There may be only one sacrifice left to make.


Goodreads


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

I was so excited to get this book!!  I have been a huge fan of this series and this couple was definitely one I was excited to read.

Sabin, I mean I felt horrible for her.  Her family is made up of horrible people and she unfortunately was born with light who would destroy her brother so she has been held hostage for EVER until the day he would kill her for her powers.  That’s gotta suck.  Then to find out that despite this crap life the Gods give you a fated mate whooooooo hates you completely!!!  SHUT. UP.  That is even WORSE!!

Lucan is waiting for the day when his darkness will not be ale to be controlled.  He is waiting of the day he will be killed when WHATS THAT…the Gods give him a mate…..WHAT!!  ANNNND oh yeah he hates her with everything he has.  Talk about toxic relationships from the jump!!

These two go through some STUFF!!  I mean she is completely lost as to why he hates her and he is a hot mess of lust over a woman who will most likely kill him in his sleep.  These two need some serious Dr. Phil counseling sessions but once they start to trust one another they feel like it one step forwards and 100 steps back.  The book had so many twists and new plot loops I was like Hey GOOD ONE and OH SNAP THAT CAN’T END WELL!!

I am loving where the series is headed. I hope the King is next because dudes gotta figure out how to make his mate love him and stop trying to kill him already!!
