The Virgin and the Lumberjacks by [Sophie Stern]

I didn’t want to go to the family reunion.

I didn’t want to drive home through the mountains.

I didn’t want to get stuck in a snowstorm.

But that’s exactly what happened.

When the lumberjacks find me trapped in my car, they do more than just save me. Eli and Keagan offer me a place to stay. They give me food. They keep me safe.

But they can’t protect my heart.

Not from this.

**The Virgin and the Lumberjacks is a standalone short romance with a HEA. Originally published in 2017, this story was called Take Your Time. Although the original story remains the same, this book has been updated and expanded by the author.**

I purchased this book.

SOPHIE!!  GIRL!!!  THIS BOOK!!!  OMG!!  Lemme finish cooling myself off from this novella.

YA’LL This story is a quick and steamy read about Melody who has a shit family.  I mean dang they are pretty awful people.  Straight up awful humans.   She has had enough and leaves the party.  She gets stuck thanks to a snowstorm in the mountains but is rescued by Eli and his brother Keagan.  They are hotties who area also billionaires who spend their free time-sharing women looking for THE ONE.

The men are enthralled by Melody.  She is perfectly curvy, drama free, brave, and willing to take them on.  Eli and Keagan are so happy with the little lady they are nervous for rejection after the weekend of “snuggle time”.

This book was just a great, naughty read but leaves you super happy for all the characters I the end.

Locked-Down Heart (Combat Hearts Book 2) by [Tarina Deaton, Jessica Snyder, Shauna Kruse]

Denise Reynolds’s tightly controlled life is thrown off kilter when she’s given custody of her young cousins. There are days she has a hard enough time getting herself out of bed, never mind two precocious kids.

If that wasn’t enough, Chris Nolton comes strolling back into town as suddenly as he left it. She’d broken her own rules and given him a chance once before, only to have him ghost on her. But he’s not there for her this time. No, he’s leading the FBI Task Force intent on capturing the kids’ biological father. A man who was sent to prison for manslaughter. A man who was released five years too early. A man who wants his kids back.

The past has a way of repeating itself and once again, Denise finds herself defending the innocent against the evil of world. One wrong decision, one second guess, could have devastating consequences. To protect the most important people in her life, she’ll need to trust the one man with the power to break her.

I purchased this book.

GUUUYS~This series!!!  I am in HEAVEN!!!  I will admit I am not a huge military reader, but these books got me in my feeeeeels!!!

Denise….We love her or I love her anyway. I mean she is the best.  Sorry but I have a huge girl crush and I want her to be my best friend.  I would say I would fight Bree, but I know what she can do with a rifle…so I will just share her!!!

Denise is selfless.  Denise is the most loyal person.  She is who you want in your corner.  But Denise is a MEEEESSSSS. Between getting her heart broken by Chris (accidently I admit) and the stuff with Sarah.  Girl is about to CRACK!!!  Well she does crack actually….and punches Chris ….LOL I did laugh pretty hard at that scene.

Chris is so mad when he finds out no one told Denise about his job.  He rushed home and finds out his new case is *Gulp* Denise’s cousin!!!  Yeah he is allll kinds of a mess but he knows he wont let her go again.

This book has A LOT going on.  Denise and Chris trying to get it together…mainly Denise because Chris is in it for the long haul except, he won’t do girls hair *Snicker*.  Denise figuring her life out now that she is a single mom of 2 kids.  She needs help but won’t ask for it at the shelter and just damn with her life!!!!

I am telling you.  I have book 3 ready to go.  Hayden’s narration is PERFECTION.  She gives the scenes the tension voice or comedic voice as written. I think her narration had made my enjoyment even better.  For real girl is amazing!!

I honestly am torn…do I love Jase or Chris more…its close but Jase may still be on the top…but its CLOSE!!!!

Tarina is still active duty and a single mom of six-year-old twins. Her favorite hobby is sleep. She has delusions of retiring from the military and being a stay-at-home mom and full-time writer.

#WOTR23 #Review – ICE (Sin City MC) by: Michel Prince

60847742. sx318

The members of the Sin City MC never leave before all the cards are played.

Being a wild card is par for the course for the Sin City MC’s Maxwell ‘Ice’ Winter. The current Road Captain is tasked with getting the men to their location and back again safely by knowing the back roads, law enforcement traps and safe places to tuck away if danger arises. What he’s not sure of are the five-year-old twins dropped suddenly into his care. While he’d been fighting with their mother for more visitation his life isn’t set up for full time daddy duty. And a score needed to be settled with whoever took their mother from them.

Bree Stanton is like most in Vegas, a transplant. Thousands of miles away from her family in Georgia she missed the old neighborhoods. Generations of people leaving, only to come back. There was no old lady sitting on a porch with the latest gossip. Instead she was met with people confused by her wave at the mailbox, shutting doors to her. All, but one, with a set of adorable twins making her feel like family. When the kids wander to her house because mommy won’t wake up she’s pulled into a world of chaos. One the woman used to the certainty of mathematics is unsure she can handle.

Between Ice’s need for revenge, the threat of the murderer returning and want to protect the littles calling her Auntie, Bree has to remember adrenaline fueled romances never work. Will her logical and cautious nature short her heart of a man worth taking a chance on? And can Ice settle his affairs and teach the first woman to break through his cold heart what it means to be claimed by Sin?

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I purchased this book.

This was a great intro to the Sin City MC. I so enjoyed Ice, the MC guys, and the story line. Most of all the connection between Ice and Bree was great.

After the death of his twin’s mother, he is determined to take care of his kids any means necessary. However, there is Bree the neighbor is also determined that she will protect them any means possible.  Even in that means leaving her home and stepping into the MC life to protect them. Ice is the Road Captain of Sin City MC and can navigate any map but he is having difficulty navigating Bree.

Bree is an only child and moved away form home to build her own life and follow her dreams but she still wants to make her parents proud of her. Sometimes her dreams and her parent’s expectations clash a bit.

This book pulled me in and I have to say even though Ice could be an ass he did take up space in my heart. There was some good twist that I didn’t see coming. The chemistry was great to see between Bree and Ice. Those twins where pretty great too I wouldn’t mind seeing what those two were up to in their teens and older years. Ice will have his hands full that’s for sure.

Dragon's Gain: A Secret Baby Dragon-Shifter Romance (Return to Dragon Isle Book 4) by [Sophie Stern]

One dragon. One tiger. One unexpected baby.

Sora hasn’t been on Dragon Isle since the day she slept with Wright Harkness. He’d been so sweet and wild and dragony that she hadn’t minded at all when she’d fallen for his sweet words.

It wasn’t until weeks later when two little blue lines revealed that Wright left her with more than a night of memories: he had left her with a child.

Now, she’s heading back to the island. She knows that this was never supposed to be a permanent thing. A fling. It was supposed to be a fling.

What’s Wright going to do when she tells him the truth?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book from the author through Book funnel for an honest review.

I am going to start by saying I did not read the book before this book.  I didn’t see the hook up or love story develop between the main characters.  However, I didn’t feel by reading this book I was lost of confused in any way about Sora and Wright’s HEA.

Sora and Wright both total fell for each other but Sora’s running left them both broken.  Sora because she was having a dragon baby.  She wasn’t sure what Wright would say about that.  Wright was broken because this human he felt was his mate.  He thought everything was perfect and then WHAMO she is gone.  When Wright see’s Sora he pretty was like “Nope sis. Not happening again.” He grabs her and won’t let her go.

The story was “sweet” in that they both finally come clean about things but not THAT sweet. There were plenty of naughty reconnecting scenes between the 2 characters for sure.  This book was a great, easy read.  I am looking forward to Miranda’s book ( Wright’s sister) because she was a hilarious mess!

#WOTR23 #Review – Innocence Uncaged by: Jenna Jacob

51507210. sy475

The connection we share has always been bigger than both of us.

Katiana

As a girl, I craved Ryder Evans. My every desire was about him. My every fantasy revolved around him. In his eyes, I was a teenager, a daddy’s girl. Way too young. I vowed that when I grew up, I’d make Ryder see me as a woman. But fate cruelly took him from me. Now I’ve lost my father, too. While performing my final solemn duty to him, I crashed during a blinding blizzard. I expected to join Daddy in the afterlife. Instead, I woke to find my rescuer—a burly, bearded mountain man who ignites me as only Ryder ever did.

Ryder

Four years ago, I left cage fighting and civilization because I had too much blood on my hands and too much darkness in my soul to risk destroying the only female I ever loved. If I hadn’t, Katiana would have guessed how badly I ached to steal her innocence and make her mine, though it was forbidden. Now that’s she’s crashed into my life again—and all grown up—can I convince her heart to take one last chance on me?

(Originally published in the Alphas Confess All anthology)

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

Ryder was a cage fighter but not only left the fighting world but left everything to live a life of solitude.  Ryder was in love with Katiana also but she was too young for him at the time so he had to leave her behind also.  Katiana just lost her father and was making a trip out to his cabin. Imagine her surprise finding out the man that saved her was Ryder. The man she was in love with and thought was dead for several years.

I loved this quick read. It is a great second chance love story. The chemistry between Katiana and Ryder was explosive.  They both have pasts they need to face and move on from to make a future for the both of them.

#WOTR23 #FakeMate #Shifters #SeriesStarter #RAWRCountyShifters – The Polar Bear’s Fake Mate, Rawr County Shifters book 1 by Sophie Stern

The Polar Bear's Fake Mate (Shifters of Rawr County Book 1) by [Sophie Stern]

One bear. One human. One big, fat lie.

Justin
You’d think that with a backstory like mine, the idea of taking a mate is unbelievable. You’d be right. The only reason I’m agreeing to this entire “mates” thing is so that my mother gets off my back, my shareholders are happy, and I continue moving forward in my career. I’m the face of a multi-billion dollar company. I don’t need any scandals in my midst.

Rebecca
The offer is for one year. One year of pretending to be this guy’s mate, and then we can have a quiet divorce. He just needs his shareholders off of his back, and me? Well, I’d like to not starve to death. Only, there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to Justin. He might have money and brains and incredibly good looks, but there’s a secret that lurks behind those beautiful eyes.

And I intend to find out what it is.

THE POLAR BEAR’S FAKE MATE is the first book in SHIFTERS OF RAWR COUNTY: a new shifter series from Sophie Stern. There is no cheating and a guaranteed HEA for our happy couple. You may also want to check out THE DRAGON’S CHRISTMAS TREASURE for a sneak peek at life in Rawr County!

#BookPromo #Freebie Never Run: A May Moore Suspense Thriller, Book 1 by Blake Pierce

From #1 bestselling mystery and suspense author Blake Pierce comes a gripping new series: May Moore, 29, an average Midwestern woman and deputy sheriff, has always lived in the shadow of her older, brilliant FBI agent sister. Yet the sisters are united by the cold case of their missing younger sister—and when an eerily similar serial killer strikes in May’s quiet, Minnesota lakeside town, it is May’s turn to prove herself, to try to outshine her sister and the FBI, and, in this action-packed thriller, to outwit and hunt down a diabolical killer before he strikes again.

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery.”
—Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone)

May Moore wastes no time investigating, but things quickly go south when her older sister, an accomplished FBI BAU agent who constantly outshines her, is called in by local authorities to help. Making matters worse, the case brings up dark memories and buried secrets from her family’s history—and neither May nor her sister are ready to confront the past.

But with a ticking clock, May and her sister will have to put aside old grievances to find this killer and save the next victim, and they will have to be careful not to assume this is the same killer from their past.

But is he?

#wotr #newrelease #mm #standalone Rebound by Kate Hawthorne 

They say the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else… 
 
At least that’s what Ben is trying to convince himself. Ready to put his ex-boyfriend in the rear view for good, he connects with a handsome older man who’s only interested in something quick and casual. Their rules are simple—no strings, no feelings, and absolutely no kissing. 
 
Thomas has never been with a man before, but in the midst of divorcing his estranged wife, he knows it’s something he is ready to act on. He’s wondered for years if his attraction to men is something real, so hooking up with an experienced and gorgeous younger man seems like a surefire way to find out. Better yet, it’ll kill two birds with one stone: exploring the depths of his midlife awakening and moving forward into a brand kind of new life. 
 
One time together turns into two times, and two turns into something regular, but the rules still apply… until they don’t. Late night phone calls lead to early evening dinner dates, and one by one the rules are all out the window. 
 
Ben was supposed to be Thomas’s first time, and Thomas was supposed to be Ben’s rebound…but what if the best way to get over someone is also the best way to fall in love?

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

What better way to get over your ex-wife then sleeping with a man right? Well Thomas did that very thing he always had a curious side of him of what it would be like to be with a man, and after he finally got divorced from his wife who was actually cheating on him, he thought what better time than now he was alone in his new apartment he got on an app he had so hidden no one would find it. Ben was dealing with a narcissist boyfriend who just abused his body, mind and spirit, but a good romp in the sheets seemed to fix it for that moment. Well he finally had enough and finally ended it with him, Ben found himself on the same app, not looking for anything serious just a good lay from time to time. Well Ben and Thomas end up talking and next thing Thomas knew he was at Ben’s door for the first time and his first time being with a man. It was everything Thomas ever though it would be and he was glad he finally did it and Ben was just as impressed with Thomas’s performance even though he didn’t know it was his first time with a man. Will Thomas be able to keep his past in the past and just be able to hook up with Ben without catching feelings and same for Ben who was fine with a no strings attached hookup or will everything come out of the closet and go up in flames. Wow this story was so spicey and crazy but oh so good.  

With over two dozen published romances to her name, Kate Hawthorne has built a recognizable brand around telling emotional stories that pack a figurative (and sometimes literal) punch. 
 
Existing on a steady diet of wine and coffee, Kate spends her days dreaming up angsty stories full of heat, kink, and heart. Kate now lives in Louisville, where she writes romance, reads romance, and hides from the humidity. 

#NewRelease #DARK – Primaveral by BL Mute & Yolanda Olson

Primaveral by [Yolanda Olson, BL Mute]

Since I was born blind, most would think I’m missing out on a lot life has to offer, but with them— my silent suitors— I know that’s not true.

It started with only one.

Every night he would sneak into my room, and every night I was left wanting more.

I’ve never known what it’s like to see, so it was easy for him to stay hidden, but when one set of hands turns into two, and eventually three, my thirst for answers becomes unbearable.

Each one of them are calculated and smart— making sure to only give me enough to keep me satisfied throughout the day before they return again in the night.

Our little game continued for months— years— before they finally revealed their identities, and although it’s all I wanted to know, now it just makes things more complicated.
