#WOTR21 – #Review – The Only Sorceress by Anya Breton

Self-proclaimed sorceress Kora Walsh knows exactly how to use her shiny new MBA. She’ll open a new age shop in a colony of the country’s most powerful witches. But the town rife with bigots doesn’t want her or her sleek shop tainting their perfect community.

Kora would leave if she had any choice in the matter. She’s trained from childhood for her true task—infiltrating coven leadership as her mother’s mole. Failure to do her familial duty is not an option, not when her childhood nemesis is assured her failed soul for an eternity of torture.

And thanks to the colony’s loudest supporter, the beautiful Desmond Marino, failure is a very real danger.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I absolutely love this story! Kora is the daughter of the goddess of magic, but she is half human. What does that mean for her? Yep, she must live topside with all of us humans….and shifters, witches, and vampires, oh my! Since she is half human and has to live with all of us mere humans, she has to work and make a living. On top of that, she has to do “odd” jobs for her mother that include being dropped in strange places to stop rogue witches from doing crazy things. Her most recent mission is to infiltrate the leaders of Wipuk, a secret society of supernaturals. She is up against the odds with all sorts of different creatures all while trying to open her very own “Rarities” store. Kora is an awesome and quirky character who gets put in the middle of some really strange and bizarre situations. But how she handles these is epic. She is sarcastic and witty. It is these characteristics that keep everyone around her on their toes all while keeping you engrossed in the story. Kora’s story is exciting and engaging. I cannot wait to continue this journey.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Silver & Gold is book #2 in the Silver in the City Series. Each book is about a different couple, but I highly recommend reading them in order to have a better understanding of things. Plus, each of these couples have their own things that make them AMAZING. You don’t wanna miss a thing.

What would you do if you started feeling MORE for a casual fling? If you are thinking maybe you should take things to the next level, then an unfortunate mistake, turns you into enemies?

That is exactly what happened to Benji & Rhys and now the only place they want to take things is far, far away from each other. That is kind of hard for them to do since they really have nowhere to hide.

I love this series so much! All of the men are amazing and each of them have a special place in my heart. I’m both excited and sad to read book 3. I don’t want this series to end.

A.d. Ellis is my go to when I need an MM fix. Her books always grab me from the first paragraph and don’t let go until the last word. Silver and Gold had the same effect on me. I can’t wait to read book 3 in this series.

About A.D. Ellis

Escape into addictive, sexy, emotional romance.
A.D. Ellis is an Indiana girl, born and raised. She spends much of her time in central Indiana as an instructional coach/teacher in the inner city of Indianapolis, being a mom to two amazing school-aged children, and wondering how she and her husband of nearly two decades haven’t driven each other insane yet. A lot of her time is also devoted to phone call avoidance and her hatred of cooking.
She loves chocolate, wine, pizza, and naps along with reading and writing romance. These loves don’t leave much time for housework, much to the chagrin of her husband. Who would pick cleaning the house over a nap or a good book? She uses any extra time to increase her fluency in sarcasm.
A.D. uses she/they pronouns.

#WOTR21 #AttendingAuthor #MMRomance #AgeGap —Silver and Sage (Silver in the City #1) by: A.D. Ellis


Silver doesn’t have time for feelings or a relationship. Then Sage shows up.
Sage is Silver’s exact opposite, his renter, and his new employee. The kid is much too young and much too innocent.
There are a million reasons why Silver and Sage should never get together. And Silver plans to keep it that way.
Until all of those reasons go up in flames with one kiss.

Silver & Sage is a steamy, slow burn M/M age gap, opposites-attract romance between a shy, inexperienced nerd and an outgoing grump of a bar owner.

Goodreads

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Bode, his twin brother, and their cousin are looking for a roommate. They hold interviews for the open room, trying to find a fit. Everyone thinks Sage would be the perfect roommate. Well, everyone except for Bode. He tries all he can to talk the others out of picking Sage. What is Bode’s aversion to Sage moving in? And will he win the roommate disagreement?

Silver and Sage is a cute May/December romance between a bitter, brooding, bar owner who is in so much denial about his feelings for a cute little geek who keeps to himself and is very confused as to why Bode is the way he is towards him.

I loved everything about these two and their oh so slow burn romance. As with all the books I’ve read by this author, it left me completely happy with the outcome but at the same time wanting the story to go on forever because the characters were just so loveable.

#WOTR21 #AttendingAuthor #MMRomance #FriendsToLovers —Hearts Ablaze (Forged in the City book 1) by: A.D. Ellis


Chase Steele and Xander Copperfield are down on their luck, as similar as they are different, and ready for a love they didn’t even realize they’d been waiting on their whole lives.
With two gorgeous “tough guys” discovering and exploring their true selves, Hearts Ablaze is a steamy, slow-burn, friends-to-lovers, opposites attract, bisexual awakening romance.

*This is the first book in the Forged in the City series.*

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Chase and Xander’s paths crossed by chance one afternoon. Little did either of them know, that brief interaction would be the start of something remarkable.

A.d. Ellis has done it again, bringing another unlikely pair together. Two men who are complete opposites, yet completely perfect for one another.
I loved EVERYTHING about Chase and Xander. And the way she connected their lives to the lives of the Silver’s from her previous series was pretty terrific. As always, I’m highly anticipating her next release.

#WOTR21 #AttendingAuthor #LGBTQIA+ #FantasyRomance —What Blooms Beneath by: A.D. Ellis

A hidden world and painful secrets are a potentially complicated blend. However, with Rhône by his side, enlightening details and unexplored powers provide Kellan with an opportunity for deep self-discovery.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

The book takes place on earth in the year 2044. It starts when Kellan meets someone named Rhone in the park. After their encounter, Kellan people watches for a week hoping to see Rhone again- he just can’t seem to get them out of his mind. It was beginning to seem like Rhone didn’t really exist.

I really enjoyed this book about love and acceptance. There are definitely lessons to be learned from it. Sometimes it may seem like its easier to walk away then to deal with the hurtful words and looks of others because society has a hard time dealing with things they consider different. But, you need to listen to your heart and ignore the negativity that may be lurking round you if you want find your happily ever after.

I can honestly say What Blooms Beneath was the very first LGBTQ fantasy book I have read. It was absolutely amazing and definitely set the bar high for any books I read from the same genre. I look forward to reading more of this genre, hopefully by the same author, in the future!

Review by Twinsie Tenise

I counted down the minutes to the release of Promises. I started the minute ot appeared on my Kindle. I kept telling myself, this is it, read slow- savor it. Easier said than done, I guess. I finished in a day. While I’m sad Sterling and Araneae’s story has come to an end, at the same time I am happy to have finally got the answers I have been seeking since book 1 in the series.
This book, actually the entire series consumed me. It was very well written and kept me on the edge of my seat till the end.

#Wotr21 #AttendingAuthor #SecondChanceRomance —Whisper Forever by: C.A. Harms

Recommended for Mature Audience

I wanted to forget him so many times. Erase the memories we shared and pretend he didn’t exist. It would have made his absence easier to accept.

Lucas Rivers broke my heart more than once.
In my world he was my guy, the one I’d grow old with and laugh with. But things aren’t that simple, and time changes everything.

That naive girl with dreams of happily-ever-afters was gone.
I didn’t need a man to complete me. I was enough—no, I was more than enough. I was strong and determined. I was Madelyn Emery, and never again would a boy break my heart.

But the moment Lucas returned after four years, acting like we could pick up where we left off, that strength inside me shifted. The more I tried to ignore his efforts, the harder he fought.

How can one simple word whispered by one man mean so very much?

“Forever.”

Goodreads

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Lucas and Madelyn, next door neighbors and best friends since forever- they are inseparable, if you see one of them, the other is sure to be close by. One would think their friendship would last forever but sometimes things don’t go as planned.

Fast forward 4 years after high school graduation. Lucas returns home from college. Lucas thinks he and Madelyn can just return to the way things once were but he is going to have to try pretty hard if he wants her to so much as give him the time of day.

Talk about a page turner! Whisper Forever had me captivated from page 1. I laughed, I found myself tearing up several times and outright crying at one point while yelling at my kindle.

This was a beautifully written story that I never wanted it to end. I have absolutely loved everything I have read by this author. 5 HUGE forever stars but only because they won’t let me rate higher than that.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast

#wotr21 #attendingauthor #novella #DualReview -Quinton (Ariel Kimber 6.6) by Mary Martel

Quinton Alexander is the head of his coven, or so he thinks.

He’s the type of man who would go to any extreme to protect his loved ones, and he’s also the type of man who would do anything it took to make sure they are all happy.

He grew up in a way that taught him that the only thing that really mattered in this whole world was keeping the people you love safe—a lesson he learned at a very young age from his twisted, sadistic father.

But sometimes in a man’s life, it’s nice to know that the people you love care just as much about you as you do them. Sometimes, it’s nice to be able to put yourself first for once.

Especially when it comes to the girl of your dreams, whom you have to share with the rest of your coven.

When it comes down to it, though, who’s going to go to extremes to protect the leader of the coven when he needs it? Who’s going to keep him safe? Or is he going to have to do what he always does and look after himself?

Quinton Alexander is an Ariel Kimber Novella. It’s a part of a reverse harem series. It contains mature content and is best suited for readers 18+.

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

Finally in the mind of the beloved uncle panty thief. We finally learned why he is the way he is and why he can be such a asshole to people. When growing up Quinton was tortured and abused by his father and while he was the beloved more like hated council members would watch but Quinton would rather he deal with the abuse instead of his mother or nephew. So having nightmares about reliving his childhood is making sleeping less and less. But he will do anything to protect his family, and do anything to protect Ariel the only girl to get into his heart and stay there so much that he went and bought her 2of the most adorable hairless kittens which steals the entire covens hearts Bone and Ash steal the show. But once he has them they uncover a shit ton of issues with the seller and it spells out trouble for uncle Q. Will be make it out without his past coming back to kill him and hurting the ones he truly cares about the most or will they continue to hide and be careful. Omg omg omg I love uncle a so much this story is  perfect the one liners are great the sexy scenes are hawt as can be.

My future baby daddy finally gets his own POV novella!!  Franz it did NOT disappoint.

So Quint/Uncle Quinton/Uncle Panty Thief loves our girl Ariel with a fierceness that even he is scared of and shocked by.  He will do anything to show her how much he loves her even buying her things he never in a million year would have thought of buying AND well..trying to keep them for himself.  LOL

I loved this book because we get to see what is actually in his head and at times, he is a bit of a drama queen.  LOL  For real baby let go of the secret thread ok!! Ok!!  But we get to see him bonding with Ariel and Tyson…and yeah, its good bonding *wink* What I really loved was finally seeing what happened to him as a child.  I mean we kinda knew his dad was all kinda of awful but year having him relive moments made me hurt for the little boy he was.

I enjoyed meeting new characters and wonder what crazy Finn will bring into the coven’s lives plus how will Bone and Ash respond to the family.  But I am so ready for the next book…..and maybe a little Salt and Pepper Twin loving!!!

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Unforgotten Family (Ariel Kimber series 6 ) by Mary Martel



Ariel Kimber has settled into life with her family and coven. Everything seems to be as it should, and she finally feels like she’s exactly where she needs to be in her life.

Her dad is awesome and she loves getting to know him.

Her guys are the best and she falls deeper in love with them by the day.

Her job at Fortunes for the Unfortunate does not suck and she’s more than happy to spend her days there.

Her guardians have become family to her and she finally thinks she’s living the good life.

But, like everything else in Ariel’s life, that goodness does not last.

When the Council comes to call, she answers and refuses to bend to their will. They are not men who take this lightly and there will be consequences.

And her dream walking has gotten out of control and takes her to someone she can’t forget or leave behind.

Her life quickly becomes a mess, and she’s forced to do things that threaten her relationships in order to try and dig her way out of it. She’ll do anything for the sake of her coven, but at what cost?

And will they forgive her when it’s all said and done?

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Oh wow wow Mary really took us there. Ok so Ariel and Dash have now offically moved into the big house with their own space but still under the same roof, and all the guys are loving having her there. A lot of steamy thing happen in this book which makes the slow burning totally worth it, Tyson finally gets him some and we find out that sexy uncle Quinton has a piece of jewelry in the perfect spot. Ariel also does a few thing that really pisses her men off but with Quinton on her side she knows that it will all work out in the end or so she hopes so because this one plan of her might never be able to have them forgive her and it just might tear them from her forever. Everything she had gone though Ariel does it for the people she loves and this mission is no exception.
