#WOTR20 #TwistedTales #NewRelease – Deranged: a Hades and Persephone Story (Twisted Myth Book 1) by Monica Corwin

Deranged: a Hades and Persephone Story (Twisted Myth Book 1)

Since I was old enough to understand I knew I was worthless. A girl child when my powerful politician of a mother prayed for a boy. Someone to mold in her image. I stayed out of her way, until I couldn’t, and she made me regret every stumble, every misstep, every breath.

Like clockwork, she paid off doctors to drag me into a mental hospital at her most crucial career moments. I rotted behind cinderblock walls for six months at a time. It became my life…until I met him.

Ash. A one night stand in the back seat of his car turns into my only solace while locked away. He pretends I’m just another patient, until I force him to see me…the woman…Kory…someone who needs him more than anyone else.

My mother is a monster. I’m nothing more than a pawn. But Ash…he’s my salvation.

Hades and Persephone like you’ve never seen them. This is magic, this is menace, this is myth…with a dark twist.

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

Mythology nerd here.  I was mega pumped to read this story because who does not know the love story of Persephone and Hades??

I loved the twist of the story that Demeter, Persephone’s mom, is a politician because weren’t all the mythological Gods essentially politicians???  She hides her daughter away in a mental institution when she is on tour for the Presidential campaign.  She is also a super awesome mom….said no one ever in this book!!

Hades or Ash, is a super great doctor who is flummoxed as to why this patient is constantly locked up with no read diagnosis.  He is also stunned stupid that this patient is also the hottie he picked up at the bar last night for some hot car sex action….whoops!!  That is getting really close and personal with your patients!!!

The couple keep building the chemistry before they erupt, and Ash is fully invested in helping his patient out of the hospital.  A few twists and turns later, and we see Demeter doing her best to derail the couple.  We get a visit from Zeus and well its good to see he is still cheating on his wife Hera….again Mythology you make me so happy!!

I loved the story and look forward to more from the series because again…mythology nerd!!

Monica Corwin I love dogs, typewriters, and books (of course) especially ones with grumpy alpha holes.

When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.

Nope I write in batches like 5-10k at a time and then nothing for a few days and then another batch.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I got a wine glass a reader made me one year at RAGT, I cried it was my first reader gift and I cherish it!

#WOTR20 #review #RH #Paranormal – How to Train Your Husbands by Monica Corwin

How to Train Your Husbands: Two Paranormal Tales of Submission

How to Train Your Werewolf

Aurelia da Marcos is the only pure blood female vampire left to the Marcos house. Upon gaining her immortality at twenty-one,21 Aurelia became Caden Marcos’s betrothed. Unfortunately, when Caden’s business tanks the immortal council puts a werewolf watchman on the coven to monitor its affairs. Can the three figure out a way to save the coven all while navigating the rough waters of their mutual attraction to each other?

How to Train Your Witch

Aurelia, Caden, and Winter escaped the wrath of the council once before. Until a witch shows up looking to verify their claim of love and devotion. Or uncover truth that Aurelia bewitched the men in her life.

Abel is unlike any man Aurelia has ever met. Unlike her vampire and werewolf lovers, a witch is a new kind of challenge.

What happens to love when magic enters the game?

Goodreads

I purchased this book.

I am like a Monica super fan.  I love how she can turn classic lit into modern stories.  When I saw she published this naughty little number I grabbed it because I haven’t really ready anything of hers that is over the top naught plus its RH….SOLD!!

This story is about the love triangle of Caden, Winter and Aurelia.  Caden and Aurelia are the first couple to hook up but when we get Caden in the story it makes the duo a much stronger triumvirate.

The scenes are super hawt and very yummy to read if you want a sexy fun novella then this is it for you.

The 2nd story in the book is an addition to Aurelia’s harem of men with the addition of Abel.  He wasn’t the most honest of men when he approached our trio so when everything happens, we learn a lot more about this group then before.

I would love to read more from the story and hope Monica can write more.  Abel wasn’t in the boo klong enough and I REALLY want a Caden/Winter SCENE!  JUSY SAYING!!

#WOTR20 #Review #TwistedTales – The Count by Monica Corwin

The Count (Twisted Classics Book 1)

The mad priest gave me everything.
Twenty-one years in prison allows a man time to process.
To plot.
To plan.
I’ll take my vengeance in money, in power, and most importantly, on her body.
Mercedes Mondego sold me into hell, leading me to the altar like a sheep to a cliff’s edge.
Every thread I place on the board will wrench together and lead me back to her. Oh, but I’m done with love, and there is nothing left in me except an animal.
The mad priest gave me everything to exact my revenge.


Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest opinion/Review.

GAH!!!  I am such a crazy person for classic lit and I FLOVE the Count of Monte Cristo, so I was soooo on board for this book!

The book is obviously a bit different then the original hence the Twisted Classics series name but don’t worry classic friends, you will enjoy this book just as much even with the changes.

Will/The Count/ Eddie is after the woman and the men who put him in prison.  He is going to destroy them one at a time.  But taking HER down is the biggest victory for him.

Mercy is the boss.  She is ruthless and takes no prisoners which is why she is the one in charge.  She put her family away and took over the empire but soon discovers what a rotten empire she has under her.

The chemistry between Will and Mercy is great.  So many times, I was like JUST TELL HER WILL and then other times I was like GAH WHY DID YOU DO THAT MERCY!!!

The story line will keep you on your toes with the action and all the bad guys.  I swear this town was like Gotham with all the bad dudes running amuck!!

The final chapters when everything comes to the front and we see even more things shake out I legit did a gasp!! I was wondering and hoping and then even more giddy when I read about….eeeep I cant tell you sorry but trust me….if you love classic lit or if you are a fan of Monica’s stories then you will want to pick this one up.

When your lover is taken away to spend twenty years in prison and you help put your soon to be husband and a few family member away a well Mercy now has taken over the family business with the help of only a few that she trust. When a handsome stranger comes and tell her she was going with him she definitely isn’t going without a fight. Little does she know e knows way more about her then she thinks he does. Will Mercy find out who this stranger really is? Will he let her go once he is done using her foot help take down the men that put him behind bars? This is a retelling of a classic story The Count of Monte Cristo, I’m not familiar with the original story so i didn’t have anything to compare it to. Overall it was a very well written story with some crazy twist and turns i didn’t see coming it.

#NewRelease #Review – Hollywood King, Twisted Classics Book #2 by Monica Corwin

Hollywood King

Heath was never my brother.

Nor my step brother, or any other relation our family tried to impose on us.

He was always just Heath, and at the end he was my Heath.
Ten years ago he disappeared, and within three years of his absence he’d taken over Hollywood.

The world my father built.

The world he wasn’t good enough for.

The world he’d been denied when he was told he couldn’t have me.

Now he’s back, and he only wants one thing…to take it all.

Even me.

Hollywood King is Wuthering Heights crashed into the glitz and glam of Hollywood Royalty. A stand alone book with the happily ever after you always wanted for Cathy and Heathcliff.

Goodreads

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

*Clapping*  GAH!!  I love the fact Monica takes classic literature and revamps it to modern times while also giving it her “spin”.

If you read Wuthering Heights, like I did, we all know how it turns out and I was like “Monica GUUUURL!!  You can’t do that to me!!”  Trust me people the anxiety I felt made me worry!!

Health and Cathy are brother and sister by adoption.  The love they felt at an early age was not a true brother and sister love.  *wink wink* The beginning 3 chapters explains a lot about them and their youth plus sets the stage for this novel.

Heath and Cathy are two such stubborn idiots.  They both want the other, but PRIDE is to blame for their separation.  They both are so proud of the other and what they have accomplished and feel they are less then deserving for the other.

When a family situation brings them back together the fire between them cannot be contained anymore.  Of course, we have some twists and turns plaguing the couple at every turn.

The last few chapters I was in high stress….life Defo Con 5 Mode people.  The tears were threatening to fall with each page I turned.  GAH!!!  If you are a fan of classic lit then you need to take the time to read because you will not be disappointed.

#Review – Twelfth Floor (Twisted Shakespeare #2) by Monica Corwin @Monica_Corwin

Twelfth Floor

This isn’t your high school Shakespeare.

Violet Cesario fled the shipwreck of her father’s company to Illyria Pharmaceuticals. As the newly appointed, and untried CFO, the board gave her thirty days to prove her worth. Thirty days to bring up the numbers. Thirty days to fend off the advances of her secretary, Olivia. Thirty days of hiding her submissiveness inside a dominant’s shell.

Thirty days gets complicated when Duke Orsino, the CEO, offers her a deal. Help him win over Olivia and he will sway the board in Violet’s favor. If she agrees to teach him the games behind dominance and submission Violet’s career will be made. As the play turns more and more true to life, the lines blur between fantasy and reality. Can Violet hide her desire for Duke long enough for him to woo Olivia? And if he succeeds can Violet endure it for the sake of her career?

Goodreads

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

Holy Hotness and Chemistry is this book good.  I loved the take on this story.  The girl who loves the guy and pretends to help him get the other girl.  Violet, Duke and Olivia are a twisted trio for dang sure.  Poor Olivia has no idea what is in store for her.

Violet first sees her CEO while he is almost swallowing his newest conquest outside of the building at work.  She decides to play the strong working woman to not fall at his feet and become one of the many notches on his bed post.  Olivia is her bright eyed and beautiful secretary who seems to be a bit overly interested in serving her new boss???

Duke walks in to the office of his new CFO and is stunned that the one woman he can’t have, Olivia, is stumbling to please her new boss.  He can’t stand it and it makes him insanely jealous.  When he walks in on an intimate moment between the two woman he is driven to find out HOW, in a matter of days, Violet has gotten to Olivia.

The two strike up a deal.  Get Duke to win over Olivia and Duke will get Violet a permeant position in the company.  Sounds easy right??  OH friends it is so not easy.  Ya see, Ms. Violet is FAR from the dominant woman she pretends to be and is slowly falling more and more in love with her boss.  Duke is so confused because he is starting to lust over Olivia less and less and is more consumed with Violet!!  What is happening to him.  When he finally has his chance with Olivia, he is livid because it seems he is too consumed with Violet!!

The sexual tension is amazing in this book.  Duke and Violet are such perfect people for each other.  They both push the other to do better and be better.  The twists in the story are AMAZING!!  I like the author did a great job transforming each character and making you want them to want more from the other in the ending.
