#WOTR21 #NewRelease #Cowboys #MM – The Long Ride (How to Catch a Cowboy Book 1) by Cheryl Dragon

The Long Ride (How to Catch a Cowboy, #1)

Finding true love can be a long ride.

Everyone knows Lucas Burr, rodeo star and cowboy, the man who put the tiny Texas town of Burrwood on the map. When one nasty and suspicious fall nearly ends his career, Lucas needs help. Jack Gable isn’t Lucas’ first choice but he’s the best physical therapist in town.

Out and proud, Jack Gable likes small-town life, but finding Mr. Right is harder than in a city. A former paramedic who’s worked plenty of rodeo nights, Jack is familiar with the damage done to a cowboy’s body. He can heal Lucas…if Lucas cooperates.

Lucas is sure he was sabotaged—he’s been riding since he was a kid and the ride felt off. He also owns a quarter of the booming rodeo business and a big family ranch, meaning plenty of suspects to investigate…with Jack along for the ride.

Straight shooter Jack is unafraid of small-town gossip…and also not afraid to tell Lucas how he feels. He’s ready to rope him into a very real relationship that could change everything for the more secretive, reserved Lucas.

But can Lucas come to terms with his feelings, or will public pressure and judgment tear the couple apart?

Reader advisory: This book contains references to homophobia, animal cruelty, and a non-nurturing parent.

#NewRelease #Zombie #Dystopian #KU – Captured, Ruins of Play Azul #1 by H. R. Savage

CAPTURED (Ruins of Playa Azul #1)

I was raised in a world full of more death than life, surrounded by the blood-curdling violence and nauseating stench of zombies.

And twenty years after the Outbreak, it doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon.

After a devastating loss rocks my little group of survivors, I’m forced to venture out of my comfort zone in an attempt to find help—straight into the impenetrable walls of El Castillo.

But The Knights don’t take kindly to my mission, and when their leader, Gunner, captures me, everything spirals out of control. My captor suddenly becomes my ally as we’re thrust into a war of Gunner’s own making.

A war that threatens not only his people, but my own.

NOTE: True to an apocalyptic world, CAPTURED has dark scenes that may trigger some readers. However, it is not a Stockholm Syndrome Romance.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Ok so before I start my review, I am going to say Zombie books are my JAM!!!  I mean I love them and get excited when I see one because I LURVE ZOMBIES!!  So because I love this genre I am a bit picky and can tend to be a bit harsh on my reviews.  I want the book to take me away but also be realistic.  This book did an awesome job of both.  I was so impressed with this new to me author and her ability to craft a story that was believable.

Thea and her dad, along with Jason and a group of others have been hiding for years in an old prompt care building.  They are hiding from the dead AND the living.  The Moonlighters and the Knights her dad said are not groups to get involved with.

When tragedy strikes the group, Thea makes the bold and stupid decision to leave ALONE in search of medicine for one of her kids…her family….her reason for being.  She stumbles into the Knights “city” and everything changes for Thea.

Gunner is not happy his fortress has a weakness.  He also is not happy with the spitfire who keeps getting under his nerves.  When the two come to an agreement to help her people is when we meet the really bad people. The Moonlighters.  These are the people who you fear in this kind of world.  The take what isn’t yours kinda people.  The Knights and Thea soon become a team when the Moonlighters again cause strife for Thea and her family.

The story of Gunner and Thea falling in love but also respecting the hell out of each other and their opinions.  I mean he is this strong alpha but tells Thea she wreaks him at every turn because he can’t be without her.  Although he was a bit of a dick one morning with Jason…..REALLY Gunner…just pee on her already!!

The story is so fast paced.  I started reading and was like WTF I am at 50% in the blink of an eye!  The story of family and stress…so much stress in these worlds but also of finding someone who you can love with your entire soul.  Finding someone in this hella crazy world is something you can’t deny or refuse.

The side characters are amazing but Jason…my heart aches for him and Vi because she is hilarious, and I think maybe even a bit crazy.  I pictured Harley Quinn when I read her parts…LOL  do you understand now???

I cannot wait for book 2.  This story says its ends on cliffhanger, but I didn’t think it was terrible.  Its more of a natural, expected continuation to the story.  One I will definitely be reading in March when its released.

Author H.R. Savage (Heather) started reading romance at an age that made her father cringe as she tried to hide the cover behind her hands. She technically finished writing her first book in Junior High, where it mysteriously disappeared in a reformatting incident. Due to the encouragement of her English teachers at her small town school in La Verne, California, she never lost her love for the art. Now a woman who swears by the power of coffee, Chinese food, and wine (not necessarily in that order), she decided it was time to create stories from the characters in her head.

When Heather isn’t writing, outlining, or pinning pictures of hot ‘character inspirations’ on Pinterest™, she is spending time with her three beautiful children and handsome husband.

#REVIEW – Scandalous (Sinners of Saint Book 4) by L.J. Shen

From bestselling author L.J. Shen, comes a new, standalone, contemporary romance.

NOW A TOP TEN AMAZON BESTSELLER

“Best book of the year” – Angie’s Dreamy Reads.
“Best book I HAVE EVER READ” – Bookalicious Babes Blog.

They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain.
When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.
When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what beautiful chaos it will be.

This is by far my favourite book of the series! Until I read Bane of course cause he intrigues me. But for now, lets talk Trent! Holy schmoly. What a man! So I didn’t read the blurb for any of these books, so I had no idea that this was an age gap romance.

Leigh did an amazing job at bringing these two broken souls together. Even though Edie is much younger than Trent, I forgot the age gap half the time until her age was mentioned.

This book is filled with scandal, twists and turns and so many lies!

I also found this book the dirtiest of the series, which I definitely didn’t complain at all. Trent is fun. So so fun. But as fun as he is, Edie gives it right back to him. Tenfold.

I also loved seeing all the side characters again. Vicious is still a favourite and I enjoyed seeing him happy.

If you love age gap romances with some twists and turns, then I think you’ll like this one! All of the books in this series can be read as a standalone as well but I do think reading from the beginning would help you enjoy it more.

#wotr #attendingauthor The Shifters Masque by Monica Corwin

Malina has been called many things … chief amongst them: defective. As the only non-shifting member of her pack she’s hardened herself to rejection, but one man is going to change Malina’s world … a pack-master in search of his mate.

I was given this book and here is my honest opinion

This was a great short shifter story. All Malina wants to do is get invited to the annual shifter ball but the only issue is that she still hasn’t been able to shift everyone else in her family has and years after her 21st birthday she still hasn’t, but all of a sudden her invitation came and she couldn’t be more excited. Will she met someone who will understand her or will she stand in the corner and watch everyone else have fun. Somethings can change your whole life in just one night.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Just One Kiss (Oh Tequila 4) by CA Harms

What do you get when you mix Tequila with a house full of rowdy Fraternity brothers who have no boundaries? A cucumber, a pink thong, and a bottle of lube. Oh yeah, and super glue. There is always super glue…

Parties, drinking, and plenty of mornings where you can’t remember what you did the night before…that was my life.

Yet, there was one memory that lingered in my mind. Ten minutes in the woods with Palmer that got too intense to ignore.

But ten minutes with her wasn’t enough. It would never be enough.

She’s a force, one that swept in unexpectantly, knocked me on my ass and left me with an intense craving. Palmer tried to fight it with every fiber in her being, but I could see the desire in her eyes. That curiosity that lived inside of her, wondering what it would be like if she just gave in…again.

I had to convince her that our time together wasn’t a mistake. That she wants me as much as I want her. We share a connection, a bond, that has changed me in ways I never expected. She saved me. And to think…

It all started with Just One Kiss.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

I freaking loved this tight ball of sexual tension relationship. Corbin is bound to get under more then Palmer’s skin, he wants all of her and little does he know she wants him too just as much but she’ll never let him know that. When a horrible accident happens sending Corbin into a spiral of drugs, drinking and falling into a black hole, Palmer is the only one who can pull him out of it and bring him back. When her past has the key to bringing him back, but it’s the one secret she isn’t ready to let out of the vault yet. These two are amazing and I just loved them so much.

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

#WOTR21 #NewRelease #Review – What You Deserve: A Gem Stone Book – by Mary Martel

What You Deserve : A Gem Stone Book

One half of a whole.
That’s what I always thought I’d be.
Being an identical twin, I always believed I had that to rely on. I thought wrong.
Losing half of that whole left me feeling like I had nothing.
It crippled me.
Almost destroyed me.
And left me with an aching heart, a slew of questions, and a need for revenge so strong I could almost taste it on my tongue.
My name is Gem Stone. My twin’s name was Gin. We might have looked like the same person, but we were not. Divorce and a disgusting mother forced us apart at a young age, and a horrible family kept us that way.
Still, we remained best friends—or so I thought.
When you lose the other half to your whole, the other half of your soul, you lose everything.
But I wasn’t ready to give up everything, even when I felt like I was dead inside.
My twin kept a secret from me. One that changed everything and made me look at her in a whole different light.
I ache for answers to my questions, and I find salvation where I shouldn’t. Mostly, I crave some type of vengeance. Something, anything, to make me feel better about what I’ve lost.

What You Deserve is a 100,000+ word m/f/m contemporary book for readers 18 and up.

Goodreads


I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I enjoyed this book. Franks stole my heart from the start. Riley took a little more to grow on me. I have a bit of a girl crush on Gem. Mary did an amazing job on this one.
Gem never had it great. She was a twin and things were great. Until her mother separated Gem and Gin when they were little. Causing Gem to lose a piece of herself. Gem found Franklin, her BFF, and boy did she need him. At 17 Gem and Gin were making plans to be together when they turned 18. Gem was once again left alone and heartbroken when Gin died. Franks is there to help her though it.
The lies that are told or maybe things unsaid have my heart torn apart here. This book really took me on a crazy ride. Gem is dealing with the death of her sister and learning so may secrets about her family. Riley, Gin’s BFF, is also learning things he had no idea about and trying to figure out what Gem means to him. I am just stunned with all the lies that are exposed in this one. I was hanging on to the cliff by my fingernails.
I need so much more of Gem, Franks, and Riley. Franks especially please, I cannot get enough of that man. I feel there is so much more going to go down with everything we have learned so far. There are so many that need to get what they deserve for hurting Gem and Gin.

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.
