Touching Oblivion: Tasting Madness, Book 2

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

She gave, we took, then I demanded more.

I had my reasons, but none of them are good enough to validate what happened.

I need her to forgive me, but I don’t know if I went too far this time.

Going through the motions.

Starting over in a new state, at a new school, is easy compared to losing something I never really had in the first place, but I’ve gotten good at faking it.

Too bad I feel like this time pretending I’m okay might actually break me.
Touching Oblivion is the second book of the Tasting Madness Series. This is Reverse Harem novel with adult themes and situations told in duel POV.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Waylynn was just accused of being a junkie because Memphis seen her pill bottle and it gave him a flash back to seeing his parents like that. She kicked both of the guys out and went totally quiet on them not returning text, phone calls and even thinking about dropping her class to stay out of the path of the guys. But finally, Memphis gets her to listen to him and tells her that he’s sorry and tells her his feelings for her. Waylynn forgives them and they are better then ever learning more about each other and in more ways then one Waylynn is learning to trust Oz and Memphis to the point where she is starting to tell Memphis a bit about her past and taking her walls down a little at a time. Things keep getting in the way for these 3 will they be able to keep their relationship strong and how will Waylynn feel about adding 1 more into her heart, rumors, pictures and secrets will either tear them apart for good or make them stronger then ever. I didnt think i could love these characters even more then i did but oh buddy did Albany make them way better the heartaches the emotions and the sexy scenes are hot that your going to need a fan to cool you down.

Albany lives in Michigan where she’s happily married to her high school sweetheart. She spends most of her time juggling her four children’s extracurricular activities, with her nose stuck in a book. When not reading you can find her writing her very own book boyfriends. Albany’s passion is writing romance with real characters that are far from perfect, but always seem to find their own happily ever afters. 

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofatrilogy Feeling Forever (Tasting Madness 3) by Albany Walker

They say the truth can set you free… That’s exactly what I’m worried about.
Secrets never last long, but mine get exposed before I’m ready, leaving me betrayed by someone I love.

Now I have to pick up the pieces and hope it doesn’t end with me losing the men I love, or my freedom.

She thought she could scare us away.

Brutal words spoken in an effort to shake our foundation only serve as proof of why we belong together.

There’s nothing we won’t do to keep her, and we’re ready to prove it.

Feeling Forever is the third book of the Tasting Madness Series. This is Whychoose novel with adult themes and situations.

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Waylynn just witnessed her mom telling the guys about her past before she was ever able to. and she is just so shocked and embarrassed to say the least. but once her mom leaves, she lets the guys ask questions and tries to explain the voices and her past the best she can, and the biggest bomb shell that the voices she’s always heard belonged to her guys. things finally settle down and they get back into a flow of life with, Bates introduces Waylynn to his mom and her husband, and they plan to have a big thanksgiving dinner with Bates’ mom and her husband and Waylynn’s parents of course Oz and Memphis. but Waylynn’s mom always has some shit up her sleeve because she has nothing better to do, but Thanksgiving with a surprise guest and a whole lot of crazy hits the fan and a whole new round of I’m not surprised but are you kidding me happens. Will Waylynn stand up to herself with her mom, can Bates, Memphis and Oz really protect her from her past. this is an amazing story with so much heart and love and emotions that get you wrapped up and makes you feel it to your core. I’m so sad this is the last book but what an amazing ride.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Gorgeous Nightmare (Ariel Kimber 8) by Mary Martel 

https://amzn.to/3envSi9 

Gorgeous Nightmare : An Ariel Kimber World Novel by Mary Martel | Goodreads 

Isobel has been through a lot more than the average woman in her short life. 

Family murdered. 

Tortured by the Council. 

Rescued by a beautiful man she’s obsessed with. 

She’s not the average witch. She’s slightly broken, plagued by horrible nightmares, and she’s also just a little bit on the crazy side. 

But broken and slightly crazy women deserve love too, right? 

She sure thinks so. Now she’s got to convince all the men in her life that they should take a chance on her and give love a try as well. 

The only problem with that is they’re all just as crazy as she is, if not even more so. And she is certainly not the only damaged one in the bunch. They’ve all got their own nightmares to face, they just need to learn that it’s much easier to face them together than it is to stand all alone in the dark with no one to hold your hand through it. 

Review- Finally we are getting a looking into a few new characters we have gotten to know later on in the series. Isobel was saved by Ariel from the council she was being held captive in a dark hole chained by her arms and had her eye sight stripped, they used and abused her also they killed her entire family. She is a fighter and now she’s living with Rain, and Baxter in the cabin. They are their own little family with Romero who is Dash’s father who was thought to be dead all theses year surprise a deep dark secret that Ariel was able to solve. Also Finn is now a part of this little group and hes got eyes for 1 female witch that is a first for him a female has never made him feel this way but Isobel does. These lives might have a tragic and traumatic past but together they are each other’s missing links and are the key to each others happiness. MARY has done it again another amazing book in a world im so in love with.

Seeing Sound (Tasting Madness, #1) by Albany Walker | Goodreads 

I’m starting over. 
 
Moving to a new town to start college, where I can try to be normal. Or at least pretend I am. 
 
I’m willing to fake it, because I’m tired of trying to get better. Tired of spilling my guts to doctors and therapists to understand why I’ve heard voices since I was a child. 
 
The meds are working… for now, but if they stop, I’ll never tell. I just want to live my life, and if that means ignoring why so many people think I’m crazy, so be it. 
 
She’s the most silent storm I’ve ever witnessed. 
 
Waylynn is as pretty as a picture, curvy, with hazel eyes that always seem to evade everyone’s gaze. 
 
She’s been avoiding me since our first encounter, but fate intervenes and brings her right back to me… and my brother. 
 
Now I need to know more. 
 
Seeing Sound is the first book of the Tasting Madness Series. This is Reverse Harem novel with adult themes and situations. 

Review- Waylynn is starting college in a new town and trying to be as normal as possible. She got the right combination of medication so that the voices will stop for the time being and she can be as normal as she can. But when she hears the voices that are normally in her head out loud, she starts to get a little freaked out but she isnt going to let that bother her too much. She’s just gotten out of the in-patient treatment center that her parents send her to when the voices get to strong because her medication isnt working again. But this time shes not going crazy the voices belong to faces and they are right in front of her. Maverick is the TA in Waylynn’s english class and they have a pull to each other that is very strange to her shes never felt anything like this before. But she also feels it for his brother too. She cant explain these feelings but she also don’t know what to do about it. None of them do, will they give into these feelings, with Waylynn telling them all about her past or will she keep it a secret. This book was so good a bit confusing to me in the beginning but then the pieces started to go together and I couldn’t put it down. Once again Albany proves why I love her and anticipate all of her words.

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-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.

#wotr #attendingauthor #seriesstarter Summer Heat (Dirty Summer 1) By Mary Martel and Melissa Adams

https://amzn.to/3gRYVvk

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61110130-summer-heat

“A dirty summer fling with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks.”

This is my sister’s recipe to avoid boredom as we spend the summer at Daddy’s newly purchased resort.

I’m not looking forward to spending time with her and our snobby, demanding mother, but hey, at least the view is nice.

Nice and hot. Like the staff.

There’s Matt, the gorgeous chauffeur. Drew, the sexy chef. And Brady, the smoking hot surfing instructor.

Boring goes out the window when I catch their attention and maybe they could give me the dirty summer my sister was talking about, a summer like I’ve never dared to dream of before.

Too bad that the guys have big dreams for their future and that means keeping their heads down, winning the biggest surfing competition Coral Cove has ever seen and most of all, keeping their jobs at Daddy’s resort.

And to do that, they know that they can show the guests a good time on the dance floor and in the water, even flirt a little, but it has to end there.

The guests are off limits and as the boss’s daughter I’m even more out of their reach.

But nothing goes as planned, lines get blurred, and the summer nights heat up.

When we can’t stay away from each other and I make it my mission to help them make their dream come true, will we end the summer with a victory or will we lose it all?

Attention: this is a story where the heroine won’t have to choose between her different love interests. This story is part of a duet and ends in a cliffhanger.

Review- Greer has just got to Coral Cove the new summer home where her dad just purchase a resort. Her family is rather wealthy and her mother and sister prove jut why Greer really could care less about the fancy things in life she would rather stay in and read her book. Well this summer is gonna get spicy she not only does things that she never thought she would do like surf, fall for not 1 but 3 guy her father’s employees none the less, and compete in a surfing competition when the guys need an extra person. But with this fancy life comes lies and secrets, her fathers future business parter’s rude on tries to get in her pant with everything going on the island the guys are the only good thing that could make her summer better its already hot on the island but its gonna get dirty as well. Wow wow wow this is steamy and oh so sexy.

But writing is Nan’s first and most enduring passion. She can’t remember a time in her life when she wasn’t writing–she wrote her first romance novel at the age of ten, a love story between the most sophisticated person she knew at the time, her older sister (who was in high school and had a driver’s license!) and a member of Herman’s Hermits. If you remember who they are, you are Nan’s audience!

I bought this book here is my honest review  

Lauren Mitchell found herself as the third-generation doctor as a cardiothoracic surgery but after a tragic that happened during a surgery, she left the operation room and now travels to hospital’s all over to teach doctors, surgeons, and nurses teaching them how to use new equipment that has come out. She loves every moment of her job, expect when she finds herself at St. Marks hospital and is dealing with a slimy colleague trying to flirt with her, that when the very attractive Dr. Max Lange comes into the cafeteria, and she gets up and walks right over to him giving him a kiss and asking him to play along with what she’s going to do. Just like that Dr. Max was willing to play along with anything she said he was hooked from the very beginning with Dr. Lauren. With Lauren only being in town for a short time will Max be able to get her to stay longer to get to actually know her or when he finds out her secret will it make her run away faster since shes never told anyone what actually happened in the OR that terrible day. Will they be the newest talk and love fest of Rivers Edge or just a thing for the moment.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book here is my honest review 

After a terrible breakup Kitt ran away to America to stay with her cousins with their winery and help them make it amazing.

Nan Reinhardt is a USA Today bestselling writer of romantic fiction for women in their prime. She is also a wife, a mom, a mother-in-law, and a grandmother. She’s been an antiques dealer, a bank teller, a stay-at-home mom, a secretary, and for the last 17 years, she’s earned her living as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader. 

But writing is Nan’s first and most enduring passion. She can’t remember a time in her life when she wasn’t writing–she wrote her first romance novel at the age of ten, a love story between the most sophisticated person she knew at the time, her older sister (who was in high school and had a driver’s license!) and a member of Herman’s Hermits. If you remember who they are, you are Nan’s audience! She’s still writing romance, but now from the viewpoint of a wiser, slightly rumpled, woman in her prime who believes that love never ages, women only grow more interesting, and everybody needs a little sexy romance.

Perfect Pact by Cary Hart

Life hasn’t been easy for Beth, and her sexy new neighbor isn’t making it any easier. 
 
When she inherits a beautiful old barn on the outskirts of Mason Creek, things are looking up—until she meets the stubborn cowboy next door. Turns out, he’s the absentee grandson of the man she was caring for. He got the house; she got the barn. The problem? A single driveway shared between the two. 
 
In order to turn the property into her dream venue, she’ll have to make a deal with the handsome devil standing in her way. Access to the driveway in exchange for a date? Seems like a fair price. 
 
Except all isn’t fair in love and war—not in these parts, anyway. And making a perfect pact with a charming stranger could cost her something she can’t afford to lose… her heart.

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Beth was a at home caretaker for an elderly man Mr. Jacobs who had lost his wife and getting up there in age himself he need 24-hour care. They became friends and one even out on the porch swing drinking some sweet tea and the beautiful sunset, Mr. Jacob’s was reliving about the sunset the evening his wife had passed. Little did Beth know that would be the last sunset and sweet tea she would share with Mr. Jacob’s he passed that night. Beth was so worried about what she was going to do now, she had no place to live and very little money, well Mr. Jacob’s wasn’t going to let her go without even in death, he had put her in his will and left her the barn on the property, but that day she had to go meet the lawyer to hear the will, she met his son and grandsons, and she didn’t have anything nice about them going on in her mind. Especially since the one grandson Dusty stole her lemon raspberry tart from the coffee shop after she told him it was good little did, she know it was the last one. Well now her and the tart theif were neighbors, and he attraction was flying high on both ends of the driveway but Beth was stubborn and Dusty didn’t give up easily. Will they give in to temptaion and enjoy a gorgous sunset with sweet tea of their own or will they just keep up the bullheadedness and stay away from each other.
