#DebutAuthor #CoverReveal – Kit by S R Dyble

After her family was brutally murdered, Eve decided one thing.
Never to let anyone in.
To never love again.
EVER.
That way, she wouldn’t ever feel that hurt again.
For a year she’d done just that.

All that was about to change when Kit Carter, a cocky Australian boxer randomly enrolled onto her photography course at college and pushed his way into her life.
Kit was everything Eve hated about pretty boys.
Only, he wasn’t a boy.
He was all man.

Despite her dislike for him, even she couldn’t deny her curiosity.
Things were about to change drastically in Eve’s life, and secrets were about to spill out.
All at the hands of Kit Carter.

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #review – Sin by Elena Reyes

SIN

I am both heaven and hell. Sin and pleasure.
The Devil she never sees coming…

Everyone knows that Malcolm Asher owns Chicago. Nothing—not a single move is made in my city without my authorization. I’m ruthless. Conniving. Worshipped by those around me, and yet, it means nothing the moment my eyes meet hers…

Clear blue and innocent, the delicate doll on this stage holds me captive against my will. She’s decadence personified—a corruptible angel I want to own.

I’m hard for her.
Starving for a taste.
Eager for her to feel me.

This little girl has no idea of the danger she’s in within my presence. How I will make her crave the darkness I control.

How I will make her…Mine.


Goodreads


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

Lord help me Malcom!!!  Lord!!!  If Elena knows how to write anything its hot as hell, alpha men who we wanna cuddle and punch but mainly cuddle 😊  The fact he kills people should bother me right????  BUUUT yet it didn’t…LOL  Can I just say he is not a man who is told NO and the person lives to brag about it people…..that is a negative.

London was doing all she could to get away from her family when she enters The Loop.  It’s a kinky club and once Malcom sees her…game over friends.   Is the story Insta Love…yes but ya know what!!??  I loved it all.

Malcom will do anything to keep London.  He fears corrupting the sweet and innocent women who now means everything to him. But London needs to get the hell away from her dad and brothers and once Malcom shows her the world she is free!!

The story is slow to help build their romance but trust me friends is it HOT as are all of Elena’s books.  Malcom is another yummy hottie she created in her mind and I am so going to be rereading him in months to come!!!

Elena M. Reyes was born and raised in Miami Florida. She is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.
As a small child, she was always intrigued by all forms of art—whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her first taste of writing came to her during her fifth-grade year when her class was prompted to participate in the D. A. R. E. Program and write an essay on what they’d learned.
Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure. It wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world. She now resides in Central Florida with her husband and son, spending all her down time letting her creativity flow and characters grow.

#NewRelease #review #Debut #NewAuthor- Getting Hot with the Scot (Sometimes in Love #1) by Melonie Johnson

Getting Hot with the Scot (Sometimes in Love, #1)

“Playful, passionate, and positively unputdownable!”—New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren

IT’S TIME TO FLIRT WITH A MAN IN A KILT 

Cassie Crow, a pop-culture reporter for a TV talk show, is focused on becoming a “serious” journalist. But when she stumbles into a kilted Highlander with a killer accent, Cassie decides that taking one night off from work and spending it with a sexy Scot couldn’t hurt. . .

Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web. But when the Scottish prankster meets the all-American, equal parts intelligent and irresistible Cassie, Logan realizes that one night of fun won’t be enough. Could it be that this career-focused, commitment-phobic couple is finally ready to take a chance at true and lasting love?

“Witty, sexy, and oh-so-fun. . .Melonie Johnson is an addictive new voice in contemporary romance.” —New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker

Goodreads

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

I met this author at a book con.  She told me all about her soon to be releases so when I saw them available, I grabbed them.  I had no clue except she was absolutely friendly and kind to chat with.

Imagine my shock and delight when I see this book is about a hottie in a kilt….uhm YES PLEASE!!!

This story is super funny, sweet, and one that I am so happy to have grabbed of Netgalley.  I will say since this is the first book in the series, there was a bit of “world” building getting to know the characters and all that jazz but stick with it because the story is great!!

This story is about Cassie and a couple friends who take a trip.  All Cassie want is to have a wild one-night stand, but her box of condoms is still full……BOOO!!  Cassie soon finds herself sidetracked with a certain kilt wearing hottie named Logan.  Logan is all “full steam ahead” on helping her use as many condoms as possible before her trip is over.  *Snicker*

Cassie is a bit of a serious chick.  She so when Logan asks her to help him with some pranks she kinda flips out.   Relax girl!!  It’s all good!!  LOL

I enjoyed the story so much and can’t wait to read the next book I the series.

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review #2ndChanceLove – Minx by Maggie Adams

MINX

A romantic comedy about friendships, flirtations, and the elusive “Fantasm!”

Hi! I’m Miranda Blake and this is my story. Well, sort of. It’s more like a twisted fairytale, if you believe in them. Except there’s no beautiful, young princess with perky breasts, perfectly coiffed hair and a sassy attitude. I’m closing in on fifty, thirty pounds overweight according to Weight Watchers, and, after nursing two kids and that bitch, gravity, doing her job, I’m lucky the ladies don’t hit my knees. The gorgeous brown mane of hair is slightly frizzy from my ridiculous attempts to recapture my youth by dyeing the hell out of it. As for sassy attitude, well, it wasn’t so long ago that I was a doormat. And the charming prince who sweeps me off my feet into the life of my dreams? I have a dog called Prince, German Shepherd, who knocks me on my ass if I’m in the way when the doorbell rings. Does that count?


Goodreads


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

OMG this book was hilarious!!!  I seriously LOVE the characters of the story.  Miranda and her crew of best friends were so awesome to read.  But the temptation tug of which brother, Reed or Ritter, was great too!  Miranda’s friends are seriously the best people around.  They lover her 110% and are going to do anything and everything to make sure she gets the HEA with a good guy this time around.

Miranda legit is told by her DB future ex its over.  They are getting ready to leave for a cruise when he drops the bomb, she is being replaced by a younger woman and she is to get outta their family home ASAP.  Miranda rallies her troops and they set to help her find herself and pick herself back up after 20 years of marriage.

What skills does an outta work housewife, stay at home mom have?  Well she has enough to charm a playboy named Ritter into hooking her up with a job at his company.  When she meets his very stuck up brother, Reed, she is confused as to how they can be so different.

As the story unfolds, we begin to see different sides to both men.  Neither is who we thought they were.  Is Ritter the good guy or a DB?  Is Reed really an uptight jackass or just a guy protecting his heart????

I seriously snickered so many times reading this book and loved, loved, loved how it all played out.

#NewRelease #Paranormal #Netgalley – Ignite (Dark Kings #15) by Donna Grant

 

Ignite (Dark Kings #15)
Professional Reader

Every inch of him was molded as if from granite…and her blood ran like fire… 

For centuries, V has waited to awaken from his doomed sleep and reclaim his destiny. But this Dragon King–one among a legion of legendary warriors sworn to protect the human race from darkness–must first find a way to win back his sword. Wield its power. And try not to fall prey to his own illicit desires.

Claire may possess the beauty and soul of a goddess but V knows better than to mess with a mere mortal. Still, he instinctively knows that Claire is The One who can help him regain the use of his sword and restore his place at Dreagan. But if she learns the truth about who–and what–he really is, her memories of him would be erased forever. How can V love Claire truly, madly, deeply…and protect her from the forces of fire and darkness that could destroy them both?

Goodreads

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

I grabbed this book off Netgalley because I saw I was about dragons and I love me some dragon paranormal.  Needless to say, I was stunned to see this series was 15 books in!!!  Like how did I miss this series???  Now I will say that because I didn’t know this book was part of a continuing series there were times I felt lost.  If you are a fan of the series you will understand everything obviously but know going  into this book midway through the series like me left confused at times.

Vlad and Claire…love this story.  Claire is not having much luck with online dating.  She refused to give up and will find love.  Vlad on the other hand has been sleeping through time.  When he awakes and they met it was a sweet story of baring your soul to the ones you love.   Poor Claire has to deal with not only loving Vlad but being his queen.

There is a lot of talk about the impending war plus people are trying to start drama with all the kings and their mates….why do people have to be haters???

But honestly I would recommend reading the other books in the series because a much as I enjoyed this book, I would say you MUST read the others to fully understand and appreciate what is happening in this continued saga.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Donna Grant has been praised for her “totally addictive” and “unique and sensual” stories. Her latest acclaimed series, Dark Kings, features a thrilling combination of dragons, Fae, and immortal Highlanders who are dark, dangerous, and irresistible. She lives with her two children and an assortment of animals in Texas.

#NewRelease, #Review, #VCWarrior, #WOTR2019AttendingAuthorViktor: The Protectors Series Book 13 by Teresa Gabelman

After having his life shattered by the woman who held his heart, Viktor Valentino put work before everything. Many years later, learning the truth behind his lover’s deceit, his anger shifts to the man responsible for not only her betrayal but her gruesome death. Viktor throws himself into finding him to not only appease his rage but to possibly save humanity. 

Lacey Cruz has always wanted to be a writer, but she’s never had the chance to pursue her passion. After being fired from a company she was employed with since graduating high school, she now has plenty of time on her hands. 

Lover of all things paranormal, Lacey sets out to do research in hopes that special something will fall in her lap. Something does in the guise of a powerful vampire warrior. What Lacey doesn’t realize is she may be the heroine in her own real-life novel.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Oh my land, I love these VC Warriors but we are introduced to the Dark Guardians Viktor, Bishop, and Charger. WOW are these three just as bad a$$ as the other Warriors.

When Lacey decides to do research for her paranormal book she finds herself in an awkward predicament that is until a hunk of a man intrudes on her research date.  Viktor felt a pull to Lacey the minute he saw her and after implanting himself in the middle of her date he decides he will be her source for her research. Lacey is just trying to make ends meet by working at her dad’s bar and found a new job at a night club. This is where Viktor and the VC Warriors realize Lacey can be a big asset to the Warriors when things get crazy. But what happens when lacey involvement with Viktor puts her in danger?

Absolutely loved Lacey she is tough, smart, independent and sassy. NO one tells her what she can and cannot do even Viktor.  This book had me on a roller coaster ride. What is going to happen next and fear for all the VC Warriors and their mates? The way this family pulls together and helps each other and has their backs undeniably makes my heart happy. I am so looking forward to the next book which is Viktor’s brother, Bishop. Then maybe we will see more of Charger and possible his book.  J J

Review by Twinsie Dee

 

Daryl Banner is an author and composer who graduated magna cum laude from the University of Houston Honors College with a degree in both Theatre and Psychology. During his time in college, he wrote, composed, and produced a musical under Tony Award-winning musical and Theatre producer Stuart Ostrow, as well as two original plays produced under the mentorship of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lanford Wilson, who also mentored Daryl through the writing of his very first novel. 

In addition to new adult and M/M romance, Daryl also writes post-apocalyptic fantasy as well as dystopian. He is most inspired by the smart and unlikely hero, but urges you (the reader) not to fall in love with them; they may deceive you with their innocence.

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

Omg, so we were introduced to Viktor and his brother Bishop in  our favorite funny man Steve’s book Invisible Warrior.  They were a new type of warrior to us as they are witch hunters.  I was really bad about judging a book by his cover, no pun intended, with Viktor.  He looks like a rough and ready to rumble warrior not a warrior who would enjoy the finer things in life and yet that is exactly where we see him in the opening seen dining at a posh Italian restaurant. It’s also where he meets Lacey for the first time.

Lacey is a awesome addition to the females of the Warriors this girl is loyal, a hard worker, and ain’t afraid to tell it like it is.  When we first meet her she has meeting a fake vampire to interview him for, wait for it because it is soooooo worth it, her paranormal romance novel!!!!  

Viktor and Lacey are great together, watching them find their way is awesome.  Not only has Gabelman given us a new group of baddies with the demons that she introduced in Nicole: the Mates series book 1, in the book she has introduced us to another new type of warrior in The Dark Guardians.  I am crossing everything I got that Charger the Dark Guardian, get his own book because, he gonna be a HOT one!!!!

So, Gabelman has done it once again by giving us a love story with bite!!! LOL, no really we have witches, demons, possessed vamps, new love, fights, and one of our favorite people is in serious trouble.  I was on pins and needles with this one and I can’t wait to see what is next.

I can’t say anything more without spoiling it, however you have to read this book!!  If you are a fan of Gabelman’s you will not be disappointed in Viktor!!!
