Twinsie Melinda favorite reads from 2021

Writers on the River Attending Authors: Mary Martel, Michel Prince and JM Walker

Its that time again we closed the door on 2021 and starting 2022.  My 2021 was a little crazy and I didn’t get as much reading in as I would have liked. It is hard to escape into books when things in real life are crashing around you. So instead of giving you my top 5 for June through December I decided to post a few of my favorites that I read this year.

#WOTR22 #NewRelease – With You by JM Walker

Our world changed five years ago, and it left behind this gaping hole in our relationship.

We were now trying to figure out a way to move past a tragedy without losing ourselves in the process.

Married, with a son, we needed to communicate but neither of us wanted to talk about our loss. Instead, we focused on our little boy.

Finally, after having had enough, we took a trip, learned new things about each other, and fell into an even deeper kind of love.

We revealed new truths about one another and because of that, we could come out of this stronger in the end.

Author note: With You is part of the Perfectly Stated Series but Meadow and Shade can originally be found in With Us, book 2 in The Next Generation Series. With You is a continuation of their story and is 5 years after With Us takes place.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Sunny, Shade, and Meadow.  They were a hot AF book to read.  I mean MMF and MFM is delicious to read IMO.  If you are a fan of the series, we know what the evil author is known to do…kill people.  FREAKING JM!!!  So its not a spoiler to say this novella is taking place 5 years after the loss of Sunny.

Shade and Meadow are in love.  They have baby Andrew and yet something it not right.  They are not connecting fully.  They talk but they don’t TALK.  With the anniversary of the death other loved partner is pending Shade tales the initiative to make things right between his wife and him.  He wants to heal the wound and figure out what is happening between them.

Meadow is lost without Sunny. but she is also starting to spiral with the thought of losing Shade.  She knows he loves her, but her self-doubt and self-issues make her worry she isn’t enough for the man she is married too.

The novella is a great peak into the couple who is left to see what they do.  Can they fix it or do they also lose what is left .

#review #novella Her Little by:J.M. Walker

I loved my husband.

But I also loved my sister in-law.

After getting the courage to talk to Jude about my little fantasy regarding his stepsister, I was surprised but elated that he agreed to go along with it.

My crush turned into more.

My fantasies became reality.

My obsession became my little.

Hawt hawt hawt oh lordy…. ok so Mia and Jude are happily married and have an amazing sex life but one thing they have always wanted or more or less Mia has wanted was a threesome but not with just anyone they wanted someone they trusted and that happened to be Jude’s stepsister Tiffany but they were afraid it would ruin their relationship with her if they brought it up. But little did they know Tiffany was keeping a secret from them as well. Find out if they let their desires take over them and ruin their relationship or if Tiffany is just as game as they are. Wow wow wow JM out does herself again if you don’t have a partner while reading this book you might wanna have a toy near by because your gonna want it. This novella will get you all hot and bothered.

#ThrowbackReview #Dark – Broken Scars by JM Walker

Broken Scars (A Standalone Novel)

Ruined. Tortured. Broken.
What could have been the perfect childhood, turned into a hell that the devil himself would shy away from. I was forced to deal with an evil that would make the darkest of souls cringe.
Lily Noel was scarred but beautiful. She was perfectly flawed and everything that I needed.
Attraction bordered on obsession.
Passion bordered on ecstasy.
Addiction bordered on insanity.
Nothing could get in the way of our love.
Nothing…

Well, well, well Lucas.  It took you HOW MANY YEARS to finally tell your story to JM and man….was it a good one!!

JM asked me what my description of Lucas is.  I said he is her most Alpha guy yet….but then thinking on it, he is also the sweetest guy yet.  How is that you ask???  Just meet him and you will understand.

Lucas, sweet baby Jesus your life.  I can’t even understand how you LIVED through everything you lived through and yet you did.  You are the definition of survivor.

Lily…guuuurl I don’t know if I have a girl crush on you or if I want to be your best friend???  I mean you are so damn sassy and feisty and you push Lucas to open up.  You accept that broken man and all the baggage he has.  Sometimes you needed to take a quick breath, understandably so BUT you don’t quit on him.  You give him the unconditional love he has been craving his entire life.

These two, I have been DYING to read their story.  We know they are together because we have met them in many of JM’s books.  I just wanted to know how “Love Conquered All” for you two.

This story is complex, deep, and full of emotion.  Be ready to have a bruised heart and make sure your arms are in good condition because all the hugs you will be giving these two.

There are so many amazing twists and turns as we always expect with JM but this book, I think had so much heart and soul baring between the main characters.  They both are damaged souls who find THEIR person due to a quick jump out of the rain!!

#review – Finally Us, Book 5 of the Next Generation Series by JM Walker

Finally Us (Next Generation, #5)

-Vince-
She was perfect.
Her heart.
Her soul.
Everything.
I had been in love with Gigi Rodriguez for as long as I could remember. I had never been shy about my feelings toward her. Everyone knew how I felt. Except for the person who mattered most.
I needed her like I needed my next breath. Our souls called out to each other, entwining together to form a bond I had never felt with another person.
She was passionate.
Strong.
Mine.
Just when I thought I had her in my arms for good, an unknown force threatened to take away the only thing I had ever wanted…

-Gigi-
He was stubborn.
Obsessed.
Dominating.
Vincent Stone Junior was the very reason I danced. Every time I moved, I moved for him. He just didn’t know it yet.
It all started the night of his eighteenth birthday, but school got in the way and I didn’t see much of him for the next three years.
When he came home for good, I knew that he had one mission: To crack down the walls I had built.
I didn’t want to love him.
I didn’t want to need him.
But losing a piece of myself made me realize that I did in fact want those things. He taught me to love myself first and that he would be there, ready and waiting…
For me.

Review by Twinsie Angie

Vince and Gigi…I have been WAITING for these two to get it together and finally admit there is something there! Gigi needs to stop pushing him away because he is younger and Vince needs to grab his woman and claim her.
This story is a great age gap, friends to lovers, friends from childhood, etc story. Vince and Gigi have always had a powerful chemistry. Both wanted the other and did things to make the other jealous/take notice but secretly pined for the other…..ok so Vince quietly chased away any prospective dates for Gigi but who cares…LOL
This story is told as a little bit of a slow burn but once Vince and Gigi hit the sheets, the burn is met with gasoline and it’s an explosion of dirty words and positions. Not enough Orbit gum people not close to enough!!!
Vince has known he loved Gigi and was going to do anything and everything to prove to her he was her forever. Gigi had slowly grown her attraction for Vince but the fear of the age gap and how her friends would respond held her back.
One night of passion changed everything and then 3 years later they are back to face down what happened and the walls she erected after their night together.
Vince…OMG he needs a medal for his ability to deal with Gigi and her walls. They were taller then the Nights Watch in Game of Thrones..dunno the reference I am sorry for you…..He puts up with some much from his girl. He will not let her go and will do everything to let her know he is never leaving again. Gigi is a hot ass mess for this boy…errrr….man who has stolen her heart and melted down each and every wall she has tried to put up.
When they finally realize they are not going anywhere and they are going forward some weird things start to happen and some weird vibes start to appear. Gigi and Vince have to deal with some trauma that could break them apart if they aren’t able to deal with it.
I am going to say it but Vince might be my favorite of The Next Generation Kids. I love Meadow as my favorite girl, but Vince is the swoon worthiest male of them all I think. Seriously…SWOON WORTHY!!!! But damn that mouth too!!! LOL Gigi is his Queenie in public and his little slut in private!!

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

LAWD!!  There is a lot of naughty happening in this little ditty.  Jude and Mia are a married couple who are lusting over Tiffany.  They want to invite her into their bed or see how she might respond to it any way.  They are both almost obsessed with Tiffany.  What’s the problem you ask?  Besides the fact she might not even be interested?  Oh ya know……she is his step sister…..yup taboo and dirty is this little read from JM.

The book was a great look into the addition of a person by a solid couple. The constant reassurance there is no jealousy, and the trust is still complete.  But also reassuring the new person this is not anything that will destroy the solid foundation but will increase their relationship.

Ok so the boring stuff about the book is right above…..now let’s get to the hawt as hell stuff??  Uhm yes the scenes are naughty and such a great read.  Be ready to gulp down the glass of water and turn the AC on high for this sexy novella by the queen of dirty!!

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

OMG so excited it is finally Vince and Gigi turn.  These two were meant to be ever since they were little. Vince has loved Gigi ever since he was little, but he is five years younger than Gigi and he knows he must by his time to prove he is enough for Gigi. When he turns 18 they share what Gigi thought was a special moment before he left for school.

Vince is 21 and returned home now is his time to make his move on Gigi. Gigi is his and always has been. Vince hurt Gigi bad and she has some big walls that he needs to tear down. Vince is patient and tries to convince her what he knows. OK she may know it too but not ready to let him in.

This is an amazing slow burn and when these two finally get together they are like an explosive. Age is just a number and has no bearing when chemistry is involved. I love seeing these two together and how they interact together. We even get a few twists in here too. I do believe Vince is my favorite so far but are a few more on the way so we will have to see if he can hold on to that special place in my heart.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Perfected by You (Torn Series 3) by J.M. Walker

Releasing control is relief… I was warned about men like Brett Maclean. He was dark and thrilling, intense and controlling. And he captivated me from the very start. He unleashed something inside of me like no other. His bad rep and troubled past drew me to him like gasoline feeding a flame. With just one taste, I felt the danger in him, the uncontrollable power that left me breathless. The passion consumed me. Fast and hard. Temptation couldn’t guard my heart. I should have known a man of such raw and wild desires came with competition

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Finally we get to be in the mind of Brett. To see how this alpha male works and what makes him ticked. Brett is still working through his problems with his past and trying not to let his nightmares take over his life and trying not to let them hurt Evvie when he is overtaken with the demons that haunt him in them. With the help of his wife and therapist Brett still is hanging on by a thread he wants to stay in control but is slowly letting Evvie help him take some of that control over in his life.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Revealed by You (Torn Series 2) by J.M. Walker

The sharp edge of love… Brett MacLean was possessive. Even more since I became his. He was my desire…my ultimate pleasure…he was mine. As each day passed, he revealed a part of himself that had lain dormant. A broken childhood. A troubled man. One I was determined to help. After months together, I thought I knew him. But soon realized I was wrong. His dark secrets were only the beginning. The past was more disturbing than I ever could have fathomed. His deep seeded need for me came with a price that could have consequences. I needed him just as much. Because of this, we would be tested. My greatest fear was that it would take us beyond the limits of our love.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

The steamy relationship just keeps getting hotter between Evvie and Brett. But with the recent return of Brett’s mother who ruined his life as a child, things just keep getting worst. It’s like the universe is betting everything against them and throwing everything it has at them to get them to fail. But Evvie isn’t going to give up on them and is going to try everything she can to help Brett keep the demons away in a healthy manner and it might just help her the process. Giving everything to each other is all the can do to keep their sanity and keep each other safe, new clubs being opened together, and officially moving together is just the start for these two and prove just how far they will go through for each other. Another great story the raw hat passion just makes your inside get all warm and makes you want what they have well the good parts anyways.
