#WOTR21 #Paranormal #ThrowbackReview – Beauty Loves the Beast: A Wylde Paranormal Love Story

Beauty Loves the Beast  (Wylde Paranormal Love #1)

Carter

Avoidance had become my norm. After too many tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, I’d checked out—on everyone and everything—on life. Ex-navy SEAL. Totally broken man. I’d hit rock bottom so many times, I was sure I was about to fall straight to hell. It would be a welcome reprieve.
Then she found me. Beautiful, insane and more broken than I was. She needed my help. I needed her humanity.
How she found me was anyone’s guess. But she had. She needed rescuing. She needed a hero. I was none of those things.
But for the first time in many years, I wanted to be. I wanted to be her hero.

Georgia

Becoming an undercover agent for the CIA had been my dream until everything went wrong—wildly wrong. Trapped in a cage with nothing to do but anticipate more torture from the ones I was supposed to trust, I had no choice but to escape—again. This time I’d succeed or die trying.
They’d turned me into a beast and it was time to show them exactly what I could do.
Finding the beautiful man who could help me end my pain was something I’d never expected—or wanted.
It was a complication for normal people. I wasn’t normal. I would never be normal.

Could two broken pieces make a whole? Could we truly disappear with the government hunting us down like animals?
He was Beauty and I was the Beast. Happily ever afters didn’t happen for people like us.
Or did they?

I am a huge fan of twisted fairytales and was not disappointed by this one. Loving the paranormal and the role reversal! There are two completed broken and messed up people just trying to survive. 

Georgia thought she was doing exactly what she loved by being an undercover CIA agent but ended up trapped and experimented on. When she makes the escape she runs to Carter, the broken ex-Navy Seal. As their worlds collide, they both become the hunted. And here my friends, is when the action picks up as well as Georgia’s snarkiness and her death wish. 

“Your life would be simpler if we offed me. Just saying.” “Maybe I’ll off you tomorrow,” I replied, … “But today, I’m finding complicated quite interesting.

This is full of action with tons of sarcasm but with the sweet love story in the background that we all have come to love. Even if they don’t make it, they will take their stolen moments together. I am hooked on these and am very much looking forward to the next in this series. Bring on the crazy hawtness!

Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.

Just One Kiss (Oh Tequila 4)  by CA Harms

https://amzn.to/3pwBXtA

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/43070788-just-one-kiss?from_search=true&from_srp=true&qid=s9FqCDabDW&rank=44

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.

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.

Ready to Were (Shift Happens Series 1) by Robyn Peterman

https://amzn.to/3lyDQDK

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23524116-ready-to-were

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever.

I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.

Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.

But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Essie left her old life in the middle of the night and moved to Chicago never looking back. A year later her new job had her forced to go back to find out what was happening to all these female werewolves that kept going missing. So she found herself taking her gay best friend vampyre back to her hometown to kill these bad guys and try not to run into the alpha who also happens to be her ex. Will she be able to get the job done without any trouble or will she find herself in her exs bed before she leaves town again. This book was amazing so funny especially when you put a guy vampyre and an older granny wolf together its bound to be hilarious and it was definitely a great read.

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

What a great retelling of a beloved classic Cinderella but with a modern day twist. Arnessa is just your average girl working her way through college trying to get away from her evil step mother and step sisters. They want nothing more then to see her unhappy and do so by only way they can keep her unhappy is by keeping her working in the family coffee shop and letting her go to class.

Well Vincent didn’t want Diamond her step sister she wanted to learn more of Arnessa and who she was magic and all.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Ariel is trying to navigate her new normal. A life without her abusing mother, a life with magic, and these new men in her life that she was supposed to form a relationship with each of them. She was learning so much more about her life and also her mothers which she hated. Her life gets thrown even more upside down when Mr. Cole tells her that he wants to sell the house and move and would like her to come with him. The guys don’t like that one but but little did Ariel know was that Mr. Cole knew all about magic. All these questions that she wanted answered but still waiting for them the story of her life right. Another great book can’t wait to find out what happens to this group in the rest of the series.

Being Us (the next generation 4) by J.M. Walker

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51377055-being-us

https://amzn.to/3fLnPIy

Tanner-

She was beautiful.

Loved.

Strong.

After hiding away for six months with just my dog to keep me company, I was forced out of the shadows only to end up in the arms of an enemy.

Beatrix Lister saved my life. I had been taking care of myself for so long, I didn’t know how to ask for help, but she refused to go down without a fight.

She was warm where I was frigid.

She was kind and caring where I was a cold-blooded monster.

I did things to survive.

I battled the evils of the world to live.

I didn’t deserve her heart but fell in love with her anyway.

As much as I wanted to be with her, I needed answers and I would do anything to get them.

Even if it meant breaking the heart of the only woman I had ever loved.

~

-Bee-

He was lonely.

Intense.

Brave.

Tanner Horsch came into my life unexpectedly. He was like a tornado, ripping up everything in its path.

There was something about him that I craved.

His touch. His words. His need to survive.

But as we were getting to know each other, he still had walls up.

He refused to let me in knowing my family didn’t approve of him.

I refused to let him go.

After being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he escaped and eventually he ran right into my arms.

He was the villain of someone else’s story, but he was the hero of mine.

I just prayed that he could see that not all monsters are truly evil.

Before it was too late, and he gave himself to the enemy.

My family.

I was given this book and this is my honest opinion

Where do I start this slow burn is everything I didn’t know I needed. Bee just wants to be see as an adult and not as a child, when all she’s ever been is sheltered her whole life. Tanner was at the wrong place at the kind right time to put together some missing pieces after a member of another MC club got killed the one witness that never lies a near by security camera have him at the scene making him look bad but can he help the club find out who really pulled the trigger. This couple makes you root for all things good in the world and when people try to keep them apart it only brings them closer. You will absolutely love this story with all the interruptions and feelings.

Robyn Peterman

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

NYT and USA Today best selling author, Robyn Peterman writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. She writes snarky, sexy, funny paranormal and snarky, sexy, funny contemporaries.
Her addictions include laughing really hard with friends, shoes (the expensive kind), Target, iced coffee with a squirt of chocolate syrup in a Yeti cup, bejeweled reading glasses, her kids, her super-hot hubby and collecting stray animals.
A former professional actress, with Broadway, film and T.V. credits, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her peace and makes her whole, plus having a job where she can work in her sweatpants works really well for her.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

It’s been different with each series. However, as long as I feel passionate, the story comes to me. I love writing series. The characters become old friends.

What comes first? The plot or characters

The characters if it’s a long running series. Usually I have an idea for the plot, but it morphs as I write since I pants. LOL I have no set system. Occasionally, I’ll just start with a line of dialogue that grabs me and the rest flows.

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

LM Montgomery. She’s not alive anymore, but Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite books.

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

Honestly, she could talk about anything she wanted to and I would be delighted. Her life was fascinating and her books are magical to me.

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.

The blurb. Blurb writing sucks ass. LOL It’s easier to write a freakin’ book than writing a blurb.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Too many to count, but my posse of author friends keep me sane. That has been the real treat of being an author.

What is your definition of success?

Being happy. LOL

#WOTR21 – #Review – It’s a Wonderful Midlife Crisis (Good to the Last Death #1) by Robyn Peterman

It's A Wonderful Midlife Crisis (Good To The Last Death, #1)

A Paranormal Women’s Fiction with a bit of class, and a lot of sass, for anyone who feels like age is just a number!

Whoever said life begins at forty must have been heavily medicated, drunk, or delusional.

Thirty-nine was a fantastic year. I was married to the man I loved. I had a body that worked without creaking. My grandma, who raised me, was still healthy, and life was pretty damned good.

But as they say, all good things come to an end. I’d honestly love to know who ’they’ are and rip them a new one.

One year later, I’m a widow. My joints are starting to ache. Gram is in the nursing home, and dead people think my home is some kind of supernatural bed and breakfast. Gluing body parts onto semi-transparent people has become a side job—deceased people I’m not even sure are actually there. I think they need my help, but since I don’t speak dead, we’re having a few issues.

To add to the heap of trouble, there’s a new dangerously smokin’ hot lawyer at the firm who won’t stop giving me the eye. My BFF is
thrilled with her new frozen face, thanks to her plastic surgeon, her alimony check, and the miracle of Botox. And then there’s the little conundrum that I’m becoming way too attached to my ghostly squatters… Like Cher, I’d like to turn back time. Now.

No can do.

Whatever. I have wine, good friends, and an industrial sized box of superglue. What could possibly go wrong?

Everything, apparently.

All in all, it’s shaping up to be a wonderful midlife crisis…

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

This is a fun and quirky story about Daisy’s midlife crisis. Here she is tooling along in life and suddenly becomes a widow..that’s not the funny part, I promise. Things go haywire at her job and now she sees dead people. OMG, how sixth sense is that?! Her grandmother tries to explain things but Daisy finds herself fumbling along trying to figure out what it is she is supposed to be doing. These ghosts won’t go away, their parts are falling off and she is gluing them back on, she can’t get any work done, and she has an amazingly sexy man that keeps pushing himself into her life. Oh, but wait! There’s more! We find out some secrets about her husband too! This book is a riot! “Midlife was more than a series of crises. It was a freaking destination, and the ride was seriously bumpy.” While some of it was a bit corny, it was seriously funny and definitely heart-warming. I really needed a pick me up and something different from the usual paranormal romance-y type stuff. This was just what I needed. Bravo, Robyn! I look forward to continuing this journey!

#WOTR21 #Audio #Review #Mermaids #Pirate #comedy – Tallulah’s Temptation: Sea Shenanigans Book One by Robyn Peterman

Tallulah's Temptation (Sea Shenanigans #1)

Pirate Doug

What in the Chicken of the Sea was I thinking to agree to this half arsed Otherworld Defense Agency mission?

I’m the most absurdly good looking Vampire Pirate of the High Seas. Being on the run for my life is very important work… and a freaking full time job. Defending Mermaids from some vicious Sea Hags is going to cut into my pilfering time.

Unacceptable.

Even though this is a very bad move on my part, I know I’ll eventually agree—too many bounties on my arse to refuse, and the thought of a certain Mermaid makes my roger quite jolly.

However, Tallulah, the leader of the Mystical Isle Pod of Mermaids, isn’t going to be happy to see me… at all. The horrible, sexy, breathtaking woman has been starring in my dreams for too many years to count. Sadly, just when my mind wanders to the really good nookie part, the dream ends with her lopping my Johnson off.

I just hope to Hell and back that the Sea Hags have some outstanding booty to steal. If I’m going to have to regrow my tallywhacker, the treasure had better damned well be worth it.

Tallulah
Running a tourist trap for humans in the Bermuda Triangle had sounded like a fine plan—until it wasn’t. With the Sea Hags gunning for our island and ruining our questionably successful business, I did what any desperate Mermaid would do. I called for backup.

Of course, getting help from the Otherworld Defense Agency is risky as they don’t usually deal with ocean creatures. Whatever. Desperate times call for crappy measures. Chances are they’ll send freaking Pirates. I hate Pirates…

Well, I hate one Pirate in particular.

Hopefully, it won’t be the one seafaring jackhole I despise more than any other. Pirate Doug would be an idiot to show his face here after what he’d done. Not only did the dumbass abscond with our treasure, the son-of-a-bitch took my heart with him as well.

I’ll tear his sorry ass to shreds if he so much as steps even one hairy toe on my island.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.

I queued up my audio books and I HAD NOTHING!!  *GASP*  I started scrolling through a list of attending authors from Writers on the River Author Event.  It’s been AGES since I read anything from Robyn annnd  I remember them being hysterical.  The audio price was $2 and I grabbed it.  2 hours of laughs…yes please.

This book starts with Pirate Doug.  His accent and stupidity…hello word of the day incorrectly used…had me chuckling a lot.  Then to find out his has been assigned to help Tallulah and her mermaid friends from some Seahags.  Again, I cracked up.  When Doug…excuse me PIRATE Doug begins to tell his history with Tallulah……I knew this was just what I needed.  I mean she was going to cut ff his *Wink* Jolly Roger.  I can’t stop giggling as I type this.

The story is an absolute over the top, hysterical rescue of Tallulah and her friends.  Uhm Ariel might have been my favorite but whatever.  LOL  I seriously will be grabbing the other stories and listening when I just need some stupid funny in my day.

Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.
A former professional actress, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her a chance to have a job where working in her P.J.’s is acceptable.

A total riot! If you need a crazy pick me up, this is for you! I was in sort of a slump with the books I had been reading and I knew that one of Robyn Peterman’s books would cure that. I listened to this on audiobook and it was the best! Just listening to Pirate Doug, the most handsome vampire pirate ever, and to Tallulah, the beautiful mermaid that wants to chop off Pirate Doug’s jolly roger for stealing from her and taking her heart with him, was hysterical! These two have the best banter! The narrators were both incredible and perfect for this story. I literally laughed out loud so many times while listening to this story. Some of the situations that they got into it were just plain crazy. I just couldn’t get off of the crazy train. It’s ridiculously funny! I can only imagine the rest of the books in this series and how their stories will go. I’m ready for the next!
