#Review #medical #Novella – Jason, Love in Scrubs, book 2 by AJ Renee

Jason

From the author of the St. Fleur series comes a fun tale of finding love in the most unexpected place. 

Being stood up for a first date was the last thing on Ava King’s mind. Yet Mr. Wrong opened the door to Mr. Sexy, who’s already sitting next to her at the bar. One drink becomes two, and going against her own code, she goes home with the charming stranger.

Waking in Jason’s foreign bed sends her into a panic, and she escapes before any morning-after awkwardness can ensue.

Can fate bring them together again to see if their chemistry transcends one steamy night of passion?

I purchased this book.

Dude!  A Silver Fox!!???  YES PLEASE!!!  A Book Nerd!!?? HELL YES!!

I have to say I was hooked on Jason from his first scene in the book.  Hottie older man flirting and hitting on a woman at the bar.  His opening line to Ava had me in stitches!!!

Ava is stood up on a date but flirting and going home with Jason was a lot more then she expected when she woke up the following morning.  When she runs into him again……OMG I was dead!!  I mean Hell!!  That was a perfect way for these two characters to re-connect!!

Jason has been burned by love but is still hopeful that he will find an HEA of his own.  Even with his busy lob and caring for him ailing mom, he still believes there is someone out there for him.  He is a dreamy sigh kinda guy ladies!!

Ava is a sweet girl who wants love but has walled her heart off for fear of being hurt.  He opening to Jason is a huge deal.

When the two reconnect and begin to date, we see them both struggle to keep their emotion in check.  He is afraid too much too soon will fun her off and she is afraid of too much too soon will lose him.  They are such a great story.  The epilogue is a favorite of mine and I would so love to read more from these two because the ending scene could be fun stuff to read them navigating together!!

AJ Renee is the author behind the St. Fleur series, Beauty Unmasked, Winter’s Surprise, Surviving Paris, and Finding Love at the Falls…. She’s a military wife and mother to three young girls.

Goodreads –https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31182685-forever-ride

Amazon-https://www.amazon.com/Forever-Ride-Hellions-Motorcycle-Club-ebook/dp/B00KU6IYW0/ref=sr_1_13?crid=3A052S9XV1Z3R&keywords=chelsea+camaron&qid=1560727175&s=gateway&sprefix=Chelsea+cama%2Caps%2C179&sr=8-13

Events happen in life that can awaken our truest and deepest desires. They also show us our greatest fears. Sometimes we are forced to face those fears, other times we build walls that can’t be broken to protect ourselves.

A profound connection these two once shared. A strong friendship once formed was shattered. Fate has stepped in and shaken both their worlds.

The danger, the wild, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah ‘Sass’ Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a ‘normal’ life, she has settled. She’s committed to Nick, her country club, pretty boy. She’s found a way to be content.

Things aren’t always what they seem. Wrap an empty box in pretty paper and a bow, it may look amazing, but it’s still a hollow shell.

He’s a Hellions playboy. A different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always something new. He’s Frank the ‘Tank’ Oleander, Haywood’s Hellions Road Chief. Throttle down and life is good.

The fast pace of the Hellions life catches up to him. At a crossroads, he’s forced to face some life changing thoughts or succumb to the darkness of death. Teetering on the brink of giving in, her voice is all he’s holding onto. The coma he can’t pull himself out of, but her voice is the light in the darkness. He wants the girl who pulled him through when his life was literally in the balance.

She’s sworn off bikers. Can he pull through? Can she ever see past the lifestyle to the heart of the man behind the cut? Will they find their Forever Ride?

My Review –

Life as the Hellions motorcycle clubs VPs daughter leaves Savannah “Sass” hasn’t always been easy she has always struggles with  herself about wanting to feel safe and being away from the life that comes with the club and turning her back on family. Tank on the other hand is a playboy that doesn’t care what happens he’s ride or died for his club at no cost. When Sass and her best friend Doll are sent on a ride for their safety Tank ends up getting hurt and ends up in a coma. Once returned Sass visits him everyday and her new rebound of a douche boyfriend makes her choose her life with him or her family the only thing she ever knows. Making the hardest decision of her life Sass leaves the only thing she’s ever know behind and the wonder if Tank will ever wake up. Will the love Tank has for Sass be enough to pull him out of his coma, and get back to her? Will Sass find happiness outside of the only thing she’s ever know? Is forever long enough or nothing that will happen. I’m so in love with this series Chelsea just knows how to pull you in and make you fell like you are apart of this club and are family with them.

Rebel Lynch has spent two hundred years searching for balance between his human side and his inner wolf. As a den President of The Feral Breed Motorcycle Club, a lack of control over the beast within isn’t just a pain in the tail, it’s a death sentence. One served by his club brothers: the judges, jury, and executioners of the wolf-shifting community.

At Amnesia Gentlemen’s Club, customers and staff check their real-world identities at the door. Charlotte, one of the club’s best waitresses, ditched her legit career in corporate IT because she needs the kind of income those pesky IRS folks can’t track. When the smart-mouthed bombshell pulls a gig serving a private party, she expects nothing more than a few extra tips. That is until dirty-talking Rebel Lynch strolls into the room looking like sin incarnate, flashing motorcycle club colors, and blasting Charlotte’s expectations about work, life, and love straight to hell.

One glance at Charlotte and Rebel knows she’s his fated mate. But a wolf shifter is attacking women at the club, threatening Charlotte’s life, and putting the entire shifter community at risk of exposure. Rebel and his Feral Breed MC brothers must find the crazed shifter before he strikes again. If Rebel can’t uncover the new monster in their midst–and learn to rein in the protective instincts of a fully mated alpha–his future with Charlotte will be dead on arrival.

My Review-

When you find yourself with a cruse of being able to turn into a wolf you need to have a few things in your life 1) being able to find your mate and 2) Having a brotherhood people that understand and help shape you into who you are. That how life was for Rebel only thing was he had his brotherhood but after 200 years  living he still hasn’t  found his mate and started to believe that he was going to be alone with his brothers. Until he walked into the local strip club to help try and figure out what was going on within the town and within the shifters. That’s when his heart started racing and he about let out his inner wolf as he laid eyes on Cherry the cute waitress at the club. How was he going to protect her if she was involved he didn’t know. All he knew was that he needed to do whatever he could to keep her safe if someone laid a hand on her he was going to make sure they paid. I love this book and I need more..just don’t question it just go buy it.

But that all changed when on of the kid got out and told police what was really going on behind closed doors at the manor. Ivy then spends the next 12 years trying to find a way back to her to the only family she’s known and its more difficult then even she expected. This book was amazing and dark and keeps you on the edge of your et until the very end with more twist and turns then you will ever see coming.

#WOTR19 – #Review – Proper (Fucked #2) by RK Gleason

Proper (Fucked #2)

Dave and Pam Richter continue their race against time and the plague sweeping through their home state. They’ve watched enough horror movies to know it won’t take long before its tendrils reach past the imaginary borders, infecting the rest of the country, and possibly the world. 

Despite their efforts, they continue to face one delay after another in their struggle to lead their family to safety. Their destination lays 2,500 miles away and will set their backs to the Pacific Ocean. But they’re discovering the virus turning the population into flesh eating monsters, isn’t the only threat they’re facing.

The military troops sent to contain the outbreak, led by Major Carolyn Brooks, are unprepared for the new, pack-like instincts, cooking in the brains of the infected. Now the government may be forced to initiate drastic measures in an effort to burn away all traces of the virusite from the face of the earth, before it’s too late. 

*This is the second book in a series of novellas.

Oh my f’n god! I freaking love this series!

 

“You had me at blood and semen, baby.” 

 

You have no idea how bad I want to drop the F bomb while writing this review. RK seems to really bring it out in me, haha! This story is what happens when the situation goes from UPPERCASE to PROPER. This is super intense from beginning to end and it wasn’t until the end that I could finally take a deep breathe. 

 

Dave and Pam are still working on getting the family together and back on the road but they are in the thick of it when the mail woman tries to eat Dave! Gah! Soooooo intense! But a little spoiler, Dave makes it and the mailwoman doesn’t….Ha! 

 

Major Brooks has her troops on the ground and going into the area to “contain” the virus. Little do they know the zombies are evolving a bit and have laid a trap. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the zombies are here and getting smarter!

 

This is a series of novellas so it’s a quick and fast read. I have read several of RK’s books and have been surprised by something in each book whether it’s something off color or off the wall, things that made me stop and try and figure out what the hell it is that I am reading. It’s part of what I love about this series. These are sarcastic people in a blended family that aren’t afraid of speaking their mind. At this point in the review you should stop reading what I have to say and go read the f’n book!

I was born high in the Andes and raised by a band of wandering gypsies. At the ripe old age of 7, I struck out on my own, dabbling in the arts of alchemy and personal financing. Neither of the trades paid off. At 13 I became the personal juggler for Stephen King, but alas, that didn’t last long either. Since then, I’ve wandered aimlessly through life and this planet, stopping along the way to help people and smite the wicked.

A little while ago I decided to try my hand at writing. I published The True Death series independently in 2015 and currently have ten books published to date.

#REVIEW – Sweet Enough To Eat by Alexa Riley


Nikki’s been crashing weddings with her bestie Sugar as she tries to find the one. When she least expects it, Dean pops up and he’s on the same page as she is. But a catastrophe involving a piercing, an IUD, and a trip to the emergency room has her running for the hills.

Dean always knew that when he found the woman that was meant to be his, he would know it. And the second he saw Nikki, he was ready for the white picket fence. But when they get separated she takes off… But not to worry – he loves the chase.

Warning: This quick follow-up to Wedding Cake Crasher gives you the whole story on Dean and Nikki. Read their side of the story and fall in love all over again…

Twinsie Jo’s Review:
This story is about 2 side characters from Wedding Cake Crasher. I haven’t read that story but plan on it. Even though this is a follow up, I wasn’t confused and I didn’t feel like I missed anything.
This story is super short but fun and of course, HOT.
Dean and Nikki meet at a wedding. Sparks fly and they feel an instant connection. Well things get moving pretty fast and while they’re getting hot and heavy. They get stuck. Literally.
How embarrassing??
After that unexpected incident, it doesn’t stop them from finding that happiness and love they feel from the very start.

#REVIEW – Too Many by Alexa Riley


Nellie has a desire so filthy she can’t say it out loud, but having two men at once was never on her radar until she met the twins. Now all she can think about is being sandwiched between Owen and Elijah. It’s all just a fantasy, because she could never have it in real life. Right?

Elijah and Owen have finally graduated college and are taking over the family business from their dad. The final step in creating the life they want is claiming Nellie. She’s the one they’ve been waiting on, and though she might be shy, they know she’s made to take them.

Warning: Can a woman really have too many men love her? We don’t think so! Grab the follow-up to Too Hard and find out if these three can find their happily ever after.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:
This hot little number continues right where Too Hard ends.
Nellie is attracted to both Elijah and Owen and wants them. Both of them. Not one or the other. Both. But she thinks it’s wrong because she doesn’t know that they feel the same way.
This little story is just that. Little but hot. And so delicious.
Elijah and Owen are twins who have been determined to get Nellie as soon as they graduated college. Now that their schooling is done and their careers are set, they just need their woman.
Grab this short but hot story now! And if you’re anything like me, you’ll end up binge reading the rest of the books by AR!

#REVIEW – Too Hard by Alexa Riley


Harlow Harrison has just moved into a new apartment. The only problem is that Harlow thinks she can do everything on her own when it’s better to leave it to a professional After a disastrous water leak and an emergency call, the man that comes to her rescue might be more than she can handle. 

Butch Barton is busy running his company and raising his adopted twin sons. They’re almost ready for college and he doesn’t know what he’s going to do with himself when they’re gone. One night on an emergency call he meets a young woman who calls to every dark place inside him. He’s old enough to be her dad and he has to keep his distance. The only problem is, Harlow doesn’t agree and it won’t take long for her to break down his resolve. 

Warning: Butch isn’t too old to find love and Harlow isn’t too young to be taken like she wants. Find out what happens when these two finally give in to what their bodies have been begging for.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:
I’ll be honest. I grabbed this one because I want to read the one that comes after it. I’m a sucker for threesome stories and these ladies don’t disappoint! I also didn’t want to read out of order AND I need to catch up on all the AR books I’ve missed anyway, so it’s a win-win all around.
It’s been awhile since I’ve read an AR book and man, I have I missed these ladies and their filthy minds.
Harlow is a gamer/hacker/techy type person while Butch is a contractor. Sparks start flying high when she tries fixing a leaky faucet and water starts spraying everywhere. Butch comes to her rescue and fixes the issue but not the issue of his feelings for a much younger woman.
They try and fight their feelings and the intense connection they have but we all know, that neither of them win that fight.
This story was short, hot and oh so filthy.
Now onto the next one!!

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

OMG this was my first book by Vivian but I gotta tell ya, I wanna read more!!  This was just the perfect novella for me to get an idea of her writing style, which I will say is hawt and hilarious!!

The story was about uber alpha Aaron who met a hottie waitress a few months ago and he needed to go back and claim her as his own.

Scarlett is accustomed to men coming on strong, given that she is a waitress at a casino bar in Vegas.  Seems all the drunk men feel they are allowed to touch so when Aaron strolls back in, she is eye rolling him as just another handsy guy.

The story is sweet and hawt with a dash of humor throw in.  I enjoyed seeing Aaron jumping to try and impress Scarlett into going on a date with him.  I also loved Scarlett’s friends seeing Aaron as a guy worth trusting and getting her to finally agree to a date which changes the dynamic of their relationship.

This was an erotic novella and a great glimpse into Vivian’s crazy book worlds for anyone looking to try something new and naughty!!!

Vivian Ward is a romance author from St. Louis, Missouri. She pens dark and dirty stories about alpha heroes and strong heroines with emotional HEAs. Vivian is happily married to her real-life Prince Charming who is also her best friend. One of her guilty pleasures is reading and writing smut while indulging in chocolate caramel candies.
