#review #standalone #yathriller The Fear by Natasha Preston 


Don’t be afraid. Be terrified.

It’s just a stupid meme that’s going around their small fishing town in the dead of winter—people reposting and sharing their biggest fear. But when her classmates start turning up dead—dying in the way that they said scared them the most—Izzy knows it’s no joke.

With each death hitting closer to home, Izzy sets out to try to stop the killer. Could her older sister’s friend Tristan have something to do with the deaths? He’s given her some strange vibes. Or what about his brooding cousin, Axel? But he’s in her classes at school. He’s not a murderer . . . is he? Izzie’s soon on a path that will lead her right to the killer . . . and her own worst nightmare.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this is my honest review

What is your greatest fear? Which way do you think is the worst way to die? When the newest meme is going around town and is being reposted by everyone with the worst way they think would die but they never figured that posting their fears would be used against them and be the actual way they would die. Izzy seemed to be the only one who didn’t repost he fear meme and the killer isnt going to let that slide. With 4 dead students and 1 that will never be found the killer isnt planning on slowing down anytime soon even with the cop of the killer’s heels. But who is this killer that is killing teens by their fear will they catch them before number 5 will be found your gonna want to find out for yourself but remember don’t let everyone know your greatest fear. Omg omg omg Natasha has done it again this is one of the best thrillers she’s written i ha no idea who the killer was until it was revealed and still I didn’t believe it. Natasha has a way of making you think that you know exactly who it is with all the clues pointing to one person and then completely turning it 180 and being someone else, its was amazing and i love when thrillers do that.

Leo Reid has always had a thing for the town gossip columnist, but Tate Michaels is one hard woman to get to know. That doesn’t stop Leo from doing all he can to chip away at the edges. Little by little, day by day, she slowly lets him in.

But as life would have it, the tables have turned and now, the columnist is the focus of all the town’s gossip and rumors.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Tate is the leading lady to get the gossip out in the town of Mason Creek. That was one way she could control how much was said about her father the town drunk not that it was a secret her mother just tried hard to make sure that they kept the fake happy family picture in view. But it was wearing on Tate and that wasn’t the only thing Leo was finally wearing her down. He could handle her sass and attitude and he loved every minute of it. He wasn’t gonna let her get away Leo liked her since high school and that’s something you just gotta hold on to. But when her secrets of how much she really deals with gets out will Leo really be able to handle all of it or will he continue to love her from a far, or will her perfect rumor pick up and run. This was amazing I loved getting to feel everything Tate has going on and why she is the way she is I just love it…and Leo’s property ugh sounds like a dream come true.

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.

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

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Where oh where do i begin this is the beginning of one of my favorite series, Kendall had a rough childhood having been taken from her parents in a good way she went to live with her nana and gramps which she loved because she knew she was safe. When Nana got sick they had to move into a trailer and there she met the VanPelts Brian, Casey and Will they became best friends and those 3 boys became very protective over Kendall. They keep close through out the years and plan to move to California after Kendall and Will graduate and live happily ever after. Well until a fateful night that took Kendalls future from her and left her empty and heartbroken. Ugh this book is exactly what i needed and broke my heart all over again. But to have Brian meet a few members of the quad was the perfect scene of past and future being together without knowing. Ugh i need so much more. 

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at a state park.

#review #standalone #partofaseries Perfect Song (Mason Creek 2) by Lauren Runow

I came back to Mason Creek when my life was turned upside down, both literally and figuratively. Scared and alone, I packed my belongings and left New York where I’ve made a career as a writer for a national publication to stay with my parents in the town so different than the big apple they might as well be on different planets.

Getting to see my friends was a big plus, but meeting someone new never crossed my mind until a ruggedly handsome man in jeans and a worn baseball cap came over to say hello. Not knowing someone in this small town is like not knowing how to breathe. The slightly older man caught my eye, just as much as I caught his. A witty and roguish personality kept me on my toes, even if falling for someone new is the last thing I need. 

Neither of us wants a relationship, yet we keep finding each other in this small town. Rumors fly, hearts connect, and there’s more at stake than either of us are willing to share. 

This man has secrets everyone wants to know, but when more than he’s willing to share is revealed I hope I’m strong enough to help him. I may have come back to town to save myself, but saving him might be the real reason I’m here.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Justine is back in Mason Creek after being in New York for 10 years and she felt is was time to come home. Well actually she had something terrible happen and she needed a fresh start and needed to get away from the city. While back home her friends think its great for Justine to get out of the house and come to the local bar and while there she meets the local celebrity Tucker Simms the small town country singer who is a mystery man all in himself. He’s 15 years older then her and has a son as well but he catches her eye and she catches hers and flirting was done. With his past and her reason for coming back home will these two be able to come together and be each other’s happy ending or will their secrets be the thing that holds them back. This was such a good story it did take me a while to get into it but i think i was just burned out on the love stories so after taking a pause and coming back I couldn’t put it down. And Tucker is a total daddy 🙂 

Lauren Runow is the author of multiple Adult Contemporary Romance novels, some more dirty than others.

#AttendingAuthor #WOTR #SeriesStarter Forever Kinda Love-Clara Stone


The day Carrigan lost her mother, she gained a new best friend. But she never expected the charming boy-next-door from the wealthy family to become anything other than her confidant and strength. Ten years later, Heath’s become exactly that—more.

But Ace can’t give in to her secret crush, can’t let herself feel what it’s like to be loved by him in return. Not when her entire future is at risk. Not when she houses an unexpected, deadly secret that could destroy it all.

The thing is, Heath Lovelly isn’t one to be kept in the dark. And shouldn’t you live life to the fullest, even as that life runs out?

When your 8 years old you never figured you will find your best friend in a hospital the day that tragedy struck her life. For Ace and Heath that is what happens fate brought them together and from that point on they were best friends, but when Heath released that his feelings for Ace are more then just as friends that when his life gets a litter more tricky. This is an amazing story of how fate will bring two people together and give them a hell of a ride.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Clara Stone writes YA/NA Contemporary Romance and Paranormal Romance stories and is a complete sucker for sweet, memorable kisses. She strongly believes that true love conquers EVERYTHING, along with a tub of Ice cream! 

When she isn’t reading or writing or dancing, much to the embarrassment of her husband and two kids, she’s probably watching Supernatural and The Walking Dead. So, if she sounds like your cup of syrup to your pancakes (or waffles… no favorites here), then give her a “Follow” to any number of social media kingdoms she’s built and stay updated of her upcoming releases, book sales, and book recommendations! 

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #Standalone Whisper Forever -C.A. Harms



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.”

Review by Twinsie Dee

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.

Jealousy doesn’t look good on Athena, the goddess of war and wisdom. Escaping her half brother’s happiness, Athena takes a prototype military jet for a joyride. An unexpected malfunction crashes it in a Georgia swamp. She wakes up to find herself in the cabin of the sexy yet surly Mack Bradshaw, a tow truck driver who pulled her from the blaze but doesn’t seem to want her or anyone around him. The attraction to Mack is primal, a force she can’t deny. Can she fight the urge to have sex with him or will she give up being one of the three Maiden Goddesses and surrender to him? And what will the rest of the Pantheon have to say about her big, bad savior?

She literally fell from the sky. Mack frees the blonde from the burning wreck of the jet and brings her into his home despite his dislike of virtually everyone. When the fiery beauty is near him, she sets off an ancient need, one his bloodline calls to him to act on. Can she accept his true nature and be his mate? And when an ancient evil threatens to take her from him for eternity, can he partner with her family, the Greek Pantheon, to save her?
