#WOTR20 #Review #InterracialRomace #AudioBook – The Baby is Mine by Vivian Ward

The Baby is Mine

Dealing with you isn’t easy, Blake Adams! You’re a pain in the ass! If it weren’t for the money, I would’ve never agreed to do this, especially not with you!
The only thing that mattered to me was having the baby that my late wife and I could never have. I shouldn’t have let the surrogate agency talk me into using Tasha Williams, but she was my only option – or so they said. But now, I’ve got a black baby that should have been born white. Tasha may have duped me, but I’m not letting her off the hook. The contract says the baby is mine and there’s nothing she can do about it.

When I found the surrogate ad, all I wanted to do was make some quick bank to move into a better neighborhood with my four-year-old daughter, Nikki. Now I’ve got a baby that I want, with a piece of paper that says I can’t have him. But I promise he will be part of our lives – contract or not. And be claimed by Blake Adams? He better not count on it.

The Baby is Mine is a complete, standalone BWWM romance novel with no cliffhanger. It contains some intense, steamy scenes and is not recommended for readers under 18. What about a happy ending? You’ll have to read to find out!

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

This book was something totally different.  I haven’t read a book like this ever, so I was really intrigued to see what happened.  I would almost call this a enemy to lovers story after listening to the backstory of the two main characters Blake and Tasha.

Blake is kinda a major douche bag.  I mean I feel bad for the dude because his wife did die and he was paying big money to have her embryo implanted into a surrogate.  He is hoping to have a little bit of her after she is gone.

Tasha is a single mom who is looking to get some money to help get her and her daughter out of a bad living situation.  Tasha is a sweet but yet stubborn chick who is not thrilled with her surrogate father.

Blake and Tasha have to come to the terms of a child that shouldn’t be yet is.  When White Blake’s child is born black, he is stunned.  Tasha, who is his black surrogate, doesn’t understand what in the world happened.  I mean she didn’t do anything wrong and yet the baby isn’t white.

The couple fight and argue but then Blake strong armed Tasha into moving in with him.  The couple struggle with the new dynamic of THEM as a family plus adding in her daughter to the mix.  They are dealing with is family and how they can make this work.  They suddenly start to feel an attraction to one another, and both wonder if love is possible.  Watching this interracial struggle to make it work was a good read.

#WOTR19 #Review #Novella – His Redheaded Slut by Vivian Ward

His Redheaded Slut (The Cocktail Girls)

“Tonight my little redheaded sl*t will earn her spanking.”

Aaron is as cool as they come but when he meets a fiery redhead, she gives him a run for his money.

Scarlett doesn’t care how rich this cocky billionaire is because she’s used to men like him; they’re a dime a dozen in the city that never sleeps.

But the more he taunts her with each passing night that he’s on vacation, her curiosity begins to get the best of her when he challenges her to a night alone in his hotel room.

What could one night hurt?

Little does she know, this man is about to put her over his knee and show her who’s in charge.

And there’s one more thing this cocktail waitress doesn’t realize: she’s about to become his redheaded sl*t.

*The Cocktail Girls is a shared world between 14 of your favorite romance authors! Each novella is a stand-alone story set in the city of sin. Grab your kindle, a cocktail, and get ready to meet our new swoon-worthy alphas!


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

OMG this was my first book by Vivian but I gotta tell ya, I wanna read more!!  This was just the perfect novella for me to get an idea of her writing style, which I will say is hawt and hilarious!!

The story was about uber alpha Aaron who met a hottie waitress a few months ago and he needed to go back and claim her as his own.

Scarlett is accustomed to men coming on strong, given that she is a waitress at a casino bar in Vegas.  Seems all the drunk men feel they are allowed to touch so when Aaron strolls back in, she is eye rolling him as just another handsy guy.

The story is sweet and hawt with a dash of humor throw in.  I enjoyed seeing Aaron jumping to try and impress Scarlett into going on a date with him.  I also loved Scarlett’s friends seeing Aaron as a guy worth trusting and getting her to finally agree to a date which changes the dynamic of their relationship.

This was an erotic novella and a great glimpse into Vivian’s crazy book worlds for anyone looking to try something new and naughty!!!

#WOTR19 #MFMM #AttendingAuthor One Wild Night-Vivian Ward

What could possibly go wrong during a drunken game of truth or dare?

Some couples have their kinks, and Tom and Beth definitely have theirs. Being exhibitionists is a fun thrill that the two of them share, but Tom has a hidden fantasy that his wife doesn’t know about.

He’s always secretly hoped that one day a stranger would join them.

But then the perfect opportunity presents itself one wild night on a camping trip that his wife was never supposed to go on. When the couple starts playing drunken truth or dare with a couple of guys next to their campsite, things quickly get out of hand.

How far is too far when it comes to a dare?

oh my what do i want to say about this book. first off it was amazing the writing style was great everything was on point. second it was on fire smoking hot very detailed. This was my first MFMM read and i didnt realized it was until i was in chapter 4. so this is about Tom and Beth a very happily married couple that have a wild sex life, almost anytime, anywhere they are down to the nitty gritty and on each other like wild animals. they also love the thrill of doing it in public places and the thought of getting caught turns them on even more. Well when Tom has a secret fantasy that hes never shared with his wife a normal night at the campgrounds will just turn their wild and crazy sex life into something one of them dreams about and the other not sure what got into them but they finds it hot sexy and overall the best that could happen to them.

#WOTR19 #AuthorSpotlights – Vivian Ward

Vivian Ward

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

\My name is Vivian Ward and I write forbidden, ménage, dark, and contemporary romance. I’ve been writing for almost a decade and it is my full-time job. Reading and writing have always been my passion, and I love creating stories based on our hidden desires, intimate relationships, and taboo subjects that most can’t fathom talking about or sharing with others. Aside from writing, I’m an avid reader of all books naughty, suspenseful, dark, and smutty. I’m also a mom, wife, taxi cab driver, chef, maid, laundry attendant, professional shopper, and a fur mom to two awesome dogs. When I have downtime–who am I kidding? There’s no such thing as downtime! No, seriously, when I do have a few spare moments, I like going to bookstores to hit up the romance, suspense, and reference sections. As much as I love reading stories, I think it’s also important to study writing and have several bookshelves dedicated to books about editing, plotting, story arcs, character arcs, and much more.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

Oddly, I like writing in public places. I get a kick out of knowing what I’m writing and laugh at the fact that nobody around me would ever guess I’m writing about ménages or dirty romance. One of my favorite places to write is Starbucks. If I’m writing from home, I’m happy with any place that doesn’t have four kids screaming and fighting. LOL And there’s not any particular food or drink that must be present but I do have to have something to drink at all times. It doesn’t matter if it’s tea, water, soda, coffee, or something else.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I love meeting fellow authors but, even more than that, I love meeting readers! Without readers, I wouldn’t be where I am today. It’s so much fun to meet everyone, especially since majority of my time is spent at home, writing alone. The socialization is my favorite part because I’m naturally a people person and signings allow me to interact with everyone.

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

Tillie Cole. I’d love to meet her because I love her writing but I did get to meet Jamie McGuire, which I absolutely loved! I’d also like to meet Gillian Flynn. Okay, so I have more than one author that I’d like to meet but I’m only human so sue me. LOL It’s like opening a bag of chips, you can’t stop at one.

What author would you love to write with?

Honestly, several of my friends and I already write together and release special books for holidays and just for fun, and I love it. Sometimes the worlds are shared and sometimes they aren’t but it’s so much fun creating storylines and various ideas and then getting together to write them. For a co-write, I’d like to write with either Derek Masters (again) or Jillian Quinn. She’s one of my best friends and we bounce ideas off each other all the time.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

My favorite memory as an author so far would be the two different times that I earned orange bestseller tags and hit number one in multiple categories with two different titles.

#WOTR18 #AttendingAuthor – Author Spotlight of Vivian Ward @AuthorVivian

Vivian Ward

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Vivian Ward and I’m a bookaholic, chocoholic, wine-loving wife, mom, friend, and romance writer. I’m a full-time writer but when I’m not writing, I’m usually cooking, cleaning, helping the kids with homework, or playing with our two dogs.

My grandma was a huge influence in my life, and I owe everything to her. She taught me to always shoot for the stars and to stay in school. Because of her, I am strong and independent, which is how I write my heroines. My favorite color is purple, and my hometown is St. Louis. You will always see these two things in every book that I write.

I love meeting new people and try to make friends everywhere I go. I will never give up writing because my stories are my life. I love conjuring up interesting characters and unique situations. I also like hearing from my readers, so if you’re reading this, DROP ME A LINE AND SAY HI!

When and Why did you start to write?

I actually went to medical school but before I could graduate, I found out that I was pregnant and was about six months along when I finished school. Family always come first, so I looked for alternative ways to use my medical knowledge and started writing medical articles for LIVESTRONG.com (under a pseudonym). When my contract ended, I was sad because I loved writing but, unfortunately, they could not renew it.

I began writing short stories. Okay, I’ll be honest. I wrote SEXY short stories FOR my husband. He FLOVED them! He encouraged me to keep writing (what guy wouldn’t?), so I did and I had a lot of fun with it!

I didn’t start publishing on Amazon until 2013 and when I did, I published short, erotic stories. Around 2015, I decided to try my hand at longer works because I wanted to write romance novels, but I was scared. My sexy shorts (that’s what I called my short stories) sold like hot cakes, but romance novels? It was intimidating. There is some SERIOUS competition out there!

I bought HUNDREDS of dollars of reference books. Some old, some new. I studied and read, for almost three months straight. I did TONS of research and felt like I was back in college. It still wasn’t enough, so I watched so many videos and downloaded plot sheets. I must’ve sat at the kitchen table for hours and hours every week as I practiced plotting before I finally published my first novel.

Writing longer works was definitely a challenge, but I’m so glad that I forced myself to step up to the next level. I believe that writing is a very rewarding career.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I read a wide range of authors, and recommendations vary based on what my friends/readers are looking for. My favorite contemporary romance book is Arsen: A Broken Love Story by Mia Asher. My favorite dark romance book (right now) is Sick Fux by Tillie Cole. Believe it or not, I like reading Amish romance stories, too, but those aren’t my “favorite” or “go to”. Those are nice when I’m in a book hangover after my dark romance characters are put through the ringer.

I also like reading dystopians, thrillers (Gone Girl is my FAVE!), autobiographies and books about cults (don’t judge…..they fascinate the hell out of me). I’m sure that I’m probably forgetting other genres that I read, but I mostly read romance.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

What I find surprising is that I can write until the minute I sit down to do my blurb. Words cease to exist in my vocabulary when it comes time to write a catchy description that captivates readers and pulls them in.

Other than that, I’ve found ways to tighten up my writing, which I’m always working on. It’s not an easy task. There are some authors who think of (and remember!) everything in their book. I can’t tell you how many times my characters start off with honey-colored eyes and end up with jaded gems.

What are you working on now?

Right now, I’m working The Risky Series. It’s a trilogy and the second book is due at the end of March and the last installment is due at the end of April.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

A little of both. I like to somewhat plot to get an idea of where the story is headed but I find that if I plot the entire book, I get very bored with the story, I feel like my characters are limited, and I lose interest because I feel “confined” like I have to write it “just like this.”

I prefer to let my characters take me on THEIR journey, just as long as we hit those key points. It’s okay if they don’t like each other for a minute. It’s okay if they changed some of the storyline or setting. I’d rather be truly creative and let the story flow as I write it, and tighten it up during editing.
