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 writing I like to have a beverage close by whether it be water, coffee, or tea. If I’m in the zone the noise level doesn’t matter but when I’m struggling then I listening to study concentration music on Youtube or Spotify.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Engaging with readers and talking about books is, of course, my top priority. Whether they are buying my books or not I find it fun and interesting to learn about their perspective on books and what they enjoy reading. I also love meeting other authors. I usually try to make a sweep of the room before the signing starts to introduce myself.

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

I’d love to meet Melinda Leigh, Lisa Gardner, Beverly Jenkins, Vince Flynn, Peter Swanson, and Elizabeth Hayes. I find their stories amazing. I can’t choose just one and there are more than I listed here!

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’d love to have a set schedule but everyday is bit different but I rarely miss a day where I don’t write something.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

The moment I saw my first book in print. It’s a feeling like no other!

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

My copy of A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle is my favorite book. After reading this book, as a young girl, I got the urge to write my own stories for the first time.

#Review #PartofaSeries Ring Ready (Hotline Hookup 2) by Cary Hart


“I do.” Two little words I’ve always wanted to say…

You know before I turned into a perpetually single, TV-dinner-eating party of one with thirty cats and a worn-out BOB. Wink. Wink.

I’ve swiped left, right, up, down. I’m over it! Now I’m taking matters into my own manicured hands and changing the dating game with my guaranteed to set a date love app.

The only thing standing in my way? Owen Decker. And his huge…ego.

With his perfect hair, perfect teeth, and less than perfect proposal. Not the down-on-one-knee kind. Oh no. A business proposal to merge my dating app with the Hotline Hookup brand.

What harm could it do? Owen is the last person I would walk down the aisle to. After all, he’s my brother’s best-friend and business partner.

Been there. Done that…literally!

I guess you can say we’re frenemies with benefits.

But I’m looking for the one. And this app is going to help me find him. Just not in the way I’d planned.

It’s easy to fall for the enemy when you’re ring ready!

Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B082CYKS3P?pf_rd_p=ab873d20-a0ca-439b-ac45-cd78f07a84d8&pf_rd_r=R5KYGYP3FK91QNFVRR4K

Omg where do i even begin this book  is amazing and as always leaving me wanting more. Mal is trying to prove too herself that she is more of an assistant to her asshole of a boss who she may have hooked up with a few years ago and he completely broke her heart. Owen Decker is a hot shot producer for a big radio show Hotline Hookup and is trying to do everything he can to hold his feeling for Mal in even if it makes her life a living nightmare. When Mal come up with an idea to pitch a new app to her brother to take Hotline Hookup to the next level he makes her work with Owen and they have to try and get along for the sake of the app. Can these two put the past behind them and make this app the next best thing or will they get caught up in their feelings for one another and get tangled up in the sheets once again. You will definitely be swooning over Owen and Mal’s chemistry.  I freaking love this books os much and the characters that we met in the first book. Kramer is back and just as hilarious as before. CJ and Clover are there for Mal proving just how amazing it is to have a core group of friends that you can tell anything to.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Cary Hart hails from the Midwest. A sassy, coffee drinking, sometimes sailor swearing, Spotify addict, lover of all things books!

When not pushing women down the stairs in the fictional world, Cary has her hands full. Soccer mom in all sense of the word to two wild and crazy, spoiled kiddos, and wife to the most supportive husband. In addition to writing full time, she enjoys binge watching Netflix, laying around in her hammock and baking up cookies for her family and friends.

Cary writes real, raw romance! In her stories the characters deal with life’s everyday struggles and unwanted drama, they talk about the ugly and they become the broken. Everyone deserves a happy ending, but sometimes before you can appreciate the light, there has to be darkness.

Growing up, if someone would have told her she would become a writer, she wouldn’t have believed them. It wasn’t until she got her hands on her first romance novel, that the passion grew. Now she couldn’t imagine her life any other way – she’s living her dream.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Nature of the Beast (Gods of DC 3) by Tricia Andersen


He was young, sexy and a huge flirt.

There was no way that Freddy, Ares high priest and the manager of his fight club, would have any interest in a old woman like Demeter. But when the goddess of the harvest arrives in London looking for her daughter, it was hard to leave the charming bartender. Despite the age difference, it was hard to deny the attraction. Would he still want her if he knew the truth about her, especially about the married ex-lover who would never let her go?

She was way out of his league.

Freddy did everything in his power to keep the goddess, Demeter, sitting at his bar sipping tea. It didn’t matter her age. He fell deeper in love with each passing day. However, Freddy holds secrets, some very deadly. Can he keep her in his bed and at his side or will the truth drive them apart for eternity?

The goddess harvest is off to London to find her daughter after she went off with her husband.

Once in London Demeter went to Ares club and that’s were she saw him Freddy and she caught his eye. Freddy was Ares high priest, and the bar manager for his mortal world appearance.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Love and War (Gods of DC 2) by Tricia Andersen


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. The attraction to Mack is primal, a force she can’t deny. Can she fight the urge to have sex with him or will she give up being one of the three Maiden Goddesses and surrender to 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. When the fiery beauty is near him, she sets off an ancient need, one his bloodline calls to him to act on. Can she accept his true nature and be his mate? And when an ancient evil threatens to take her from him for eternity, can he partner with her family, the Greek Pantheon, to save her?

#WOTR20 #NewRelease #paranormal #Saga #Series #Review – A Warrior Christmas (The Protectors #14) by Teresa Gabelman

A Warrior Christmas (The Protectors, #14)

Jingle bells! Jingle bells! Warriors are on their way. Oh, what fun it is to slay a rogue vampire today. Hey!

To have more Christmas fun dive into A Warrior Christmas to see which mate gets the perfect gift and which Warrior Grinch finds his holiday cheer.


Goodreads



I purchased this book.

What an amazing and fun book being dropped by Teresa.  No one knew this baby was coming and LORD was it a great holiday treat.

First up, as always, I looooove seeing all the mates and their Warriors dealing with crap but seeing as Christmas was the main drama and Sloan’s lack of Ho Ho Ho-ing made it even better.

We got to see some further world building like with the introduction of a new Warrior and possible enemy of Bishop…hrmmmmm.  We get to see Daniel and all his extra perceptions happening.  We see Raven and Tessa bonding while also backing each other up with Jared.  What I really loved was seeing Katrina and Blaze.  She is such a quiet character so seeing more of her was pretty special. Steve and Mira are working on some things but Adam and steves bond….yeah it was something special to read.

This book will be a definite read to anyone who loves the series.  So any great scenes and so many intense scenes in such a short book.

Teresa Gabelman is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the ‘Protectors Series’. When not writing about sexy alpha vampires and the women who drive them crazy she can be found on a lake with a fishing pole/Kindle, at a MMA event or spending a fun evening with family.

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!

#REVIEW – Inhale, Exhale by C.L. Matthews

“I do.”
Two words woven in love.
In sickness and in health.
For better or for worse.
Til death do us part.
And death dragged us apart.
We both said those vows.
But neither of us kept them.
This is not one of those happy stories.
Life isn’t made of simple choices
and happily ever afters.
It’s a dark place.
It’s not easy.
It’s full of mistakes and lessons.
It hurts.
And in the end, those two words said in love,
are the same ones said in hate.
“You want a divorce?”
“I do.”

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I read the blurb, followed Cassie through her time writing this and I still wasn’t prepared for what I read.
I’m not an emotional reader but when I have to take a break and go do something else, you know the book has hit me. These characters…so messed up and beautifully broken…their love is unconditional. Even though it took quite a while for them to get back to each other, I was happy with how things turned out in the end.
Jase drove me crazy. Lo drove me crazy. Ellie? We don’t talk about her. Toby? sigh
So many things could be said about this book. The characters. The rawness. The love. The pain. The heartache. The misery. But while this happened, they grew. Together and a part.
This book will forever hold a special spot in my heart. It wasn’t an easy read and while I didn’t enjoy every moment of it (which I’m sure is what the author wanted and was rooting for), it was wonderful. I love the stories that hurt. Life isn’t all roses and puppies and kittens. Life is hard. It’s brutal and unfair. Life sucks sometimes. And we are human and make mistakes. I think through Jase and Lo’s mistakes, it was the only way they could find their way back to each other. Bravo, Cassie. Bravo. Now I really can’t wait for Breathe. xx
