Review by Twinsie Dee

Tate is the leading lady to get the gossip out in the town of Mason Creek. That was one way she could control how much was said about her father the town drunk not that it was a secret her mother just tried hard to make sure that they kept the fake happy family picture in view. But it was wearing on Tate and that wasn’t the only thing Leo was finally wearing her down. He could handle her sass and attitude and he loved every minute of it. He wasn’t gonna let her get away Leo liked her since high school and that’s something you just gotta hold on to. But when her secrets of how much she really deals with gets out will Leo really be able to handle all of it or will he continue to love her from a far, or will her perfect rumor pick up and run. This was amazing I loved getting to feel everything Tate has going on and why she is the way she is I just love it…and Leo’s property ugh sounds like a dream come true.

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast

#WOTR22 #Review – The Seer (The Aberration Book 3) by Michel Prince

The Seer (The Aberration Book 3) by [Michel Prince]

Since Aberrations started appearing across the globe, the world was trapped in a communal nightmare. Children tossed away, instead of nurtured. Their gifts only seen as dangers, not a blessing, all hitting the teenagers right as they are trying to come into themselves.

At some point we all get lost in our dreams of what will be or what could be, but for Peyton Lark, trying to find the right path in his visions has him slipping into a delirium of insanity. The Seer among those who’ve hidden away on an island knows when visions increase, they are closing in on becoming reality.

While he has the ability to see danger coming, it doesn’t mean he can find the path to avoid it. With his other half, his love Claire Lawrence, being taken from him over and over in painful nightmares his main focus turns to saving her, with the rest a distant second. But the path isn’t changing no matter how much he tries to manipulate the dream.

Can Peyton find the way to save those around them from a weapon created for their complete annihilation? Or will he at least be able to spin the dream to save the one person who anchors him fully?

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I couldn’t wait for Peyton’s story and I am so glad we finally have it! Peyton came from a good home with good parents but because of his birthdate, was sent to an aberration camp where he endured the unthinkable. Once he was able to escape, he found his place with others like him in Satori. They have all, Aberrations and Harveys (the normal), had to run as they are now being hunted by an Aberration Elder that is the current president. Peyton is a computer whiz and incredibly smart but his greatest strength is also his weakness. He is a seer and gets visions of the future. The only problem is that the future is always changing. He sees the same nightmare over and over where Clair is ripped away from him and no matter what he does or how hard he tries; he cannot manipulate anything to make this future change. He is finding that he is starting to blame himself but also questioning who he can trust. He feels like he is literally going insane. These hunters will never stop and finally Peyton has a breakthrough. He is thinking about things the wrong way. He needs to have EVERYONE work together. No prejudices and social classes. No more what ifs plaguing him to the point of madness. The time has come to band together and get ready for the inevitable. However, when the inevitable comes, another crazy twist comes at us and brings an entirely new type of torture to endure and get through. This story is an incredibly well written YA that can definitely get us adults on edge and turning the pages like crazy. I highly recommend this series and cannot wait for the next installment!

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this book by the author for an honest review 

Where oh where do i begin this is the beginning of one of my favorite series, Kendall had a rough childhood having been taken from her parents in a good way she went to live with her nana and gramps which she loved because she knew she was safe. When Nana got sick they had to move into a trailer and there she met the VanPelts Brian, Casey and Will they became best friends and those 3 boys became very protective over Kendall. They keep close through out the years and plan to move to California after Kendall and Will graduate and live happily ever after. Well until a fateful night that took Kendalls future from her and left her empty and heartbroken. Ugh this book is exactly what i needed and broke my heart all over again. But to have Brian meet a few members of the quad was the perfect scene of past and future being together without knowing. Ugh i need so much more. 

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 a state park.

#AttendingAuthor #WOTR #SeriesStarter Forever Kinda Love-Clara Stone


The day Carrigan lost her mother, she gained a new best friend. But she never expected the charming boy-next-door from the wealthy family to become anything other than her confidant and strength. Ten years later, Heath’s become exactly that—more.

But Ace can’t give in to her secret crush, can’t let herself feel what it’s like to be loved by him in return. Not when her entire future is at risk. Not when she houses an unexpected, deadly secret that could destroy it all.

The thing is, Heath Lovelly isn’t one to be kept in the dark. And shouldn’t you live life to the fullest, even as that life runs out?

When your 8 years old you never figured you will find your best friend in a hospital the day that tragedy struck her life. For Ace and Heath that is what happens fate brought them together and from that point on they were best friends, but when Heath released that his feelings for Ace are more then just as friends that when his life gets a litter more tricky. This is an amazing story of how fate will bring two people together and give them a hell of a ride.

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! 

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #Standalone Whisper Forever -C.A. Harms



I wanted to forget him so many times. Erase the memories we shared and pretend he didn’t exist. It would have made his absence easier to accept.

Lucas Rivers broke my heart more than once.

In my world he was my guy, the one I’d grow old with and laugh with. But things aren’t that simple, and time changes everything.

That naive girl with dreams of happily-ever-afters was gone. 

I didn’t need a man to complete me. I was enough—no, I was more than enough. I was strong and determined. I was Madelyn Emery, and never again would a boy break my heart.

But the moment Lucas returned after four years, acting like we could pick up where we left off, that strength inside me shifted. The more I tried to ignore his efforts, the harder he fought.

How can one simple word whispered by one man mean so very much?

“Forever.”

Review by Twinsie Dee

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.

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.

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.

The oceans are poison and the land is dying, but the only two capable of saving the world aren’t really capable at all.

Failed mage Lesya just wanted to be left alone to survive in the wilds of Siberia after losing everyone she loved to the dying planet. Solitude, her puffins, and the inevitable approach of her own death were all she needed.

But a chance meeting between the two sets into motion events that will lead them into the mountains above the land and volcanoes below the sea on a quest that will either save the world or kill them all.

When a witch and a siren walk into a bar, no wait that’s not even a funny joke but that is how this story goes well not technically a bar but anyway. When the siren Rivka gets sent on a mission from the underwater mob to get salt to save their leader she ends up getting caught during a cyclone and get helps from Lesya who is a witch not a very good one but a witch none the less. All Lesya likes to do is stay to herself grow her garden and hang out with her puffins, she wasn’t in the mood to help Rivka but ends up letting her follow along and sending her on her way once they get to the next city after the cyclone ends. Getting captured by pirates wasn’t in the girls plans but it happened and they got them self’s into way more then they bargained for once they got locked in the holds will they get out and get help will Rivka finish her mission or will they die in the hands of the pirates. This is a wonderful well written story that has so many twist and turns (for the good) that you don’t see coming.

Review by Twinsie Dee

HEATHER MARIE ADKINS writes too much but still too little. She also has too many cats, not enough tequila, and a torrid love affair with procrastination.

Heather resides in southern Indiana with a sarcastic cop who is entirely too dependent on puns. When she’s not plotting her next story or herding felines, she’s researching the weird, witchy, and woefully spectral for Spirits & Spells Podcast.

Jennifer Laslie is a crazy cat lady who lives in Utah with her wonderful husband and two children. Her office affords her a mountain view that she loves! When she’s not thinking about cheesecake or cats, she can be found in the bookstore in the Young Adult section, coffee in hand.

#wotr #partofaseries Till Death Do Us Part (Ariel Kimber 7) by Mary Martel  

Ariel Kimber and her coven are under imminent threat from the Council. They are monsters, without fangs or horns, who hide behind their mantle of power, and they will do anything to get what they want.

The problem is, they want Ariel. They want her so badly that every other person around her is in danger just by being near her.

The Council forgot one very important fact though—Ariel Kimber is no victim. She’s a survivor, and the Council is stupid to think they can simply take her and destroy everything and everyone she loves.

She will do whatever it takes to keep her coven safe, even if she has to go through hell to do it. They are all more than willing to fight alongside her because she’s finally agreed to spend the rest of her life tied to them in every way possible.

They have a lot to fight for.

The goal is to make it to the other side without losing anyone along the way because they want their happily ever after.

And they want to be able to say till death do us part.

But life for Ariel Kimber is never that easy.

And it never will be

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this book by the author for an honest review 

Once again we are back with my favorite coven of witches, Ariel and her coven have fought through a lot to keep their family save and even adding a few members to their family they weren’t expecting to. Well it was finally Ariel’s 18th birthday and the guys and her father were not going to let her not celebrate it after years of not being able to celebrate it. With things finally calming down Ariel couldn’t help but feel like something was going to happen but she just didn’t know when but something bad was coming. The Council was still leaking around ready to strike and when they did it was going to be big, but would they be able to pull it off. Would Ariel and the guys be able to protect their family from everything the Council was trying to take from them, will Quinton get Ariel down the isle, will the salt and pepper twins finally get some naked twister that they deserve there are so many answers that you just need to read to find. OMG Mary did not disappoint with this much awaited book I’m so glad to have this coven and world back I’ve had sooooo many fist pumps to the sky, its about times screamed, and are you serious while reading it. This makes my heart so happy and I’m ready for the next one.

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.
