#NewRelease #AudioReview – Pause by Kylie Scott

Pause, an all new emotional standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott is available in audio now!

An unpauseable new romance from New York Times best-selling, Audie Award-winning author Kylie Scott – available in audio first!


When Anna wakes up from a coma after a car crash, she discovers life has gone on without her. Her husband has been unfaithful – with her best friend – and she’s been long since replaced at work. While her old life is a distant memory, her new life feels like an empty shell. Then she meets the stranger who saved her life during the crash, and he changes everything.
Leif Larsen – tattooist, joker, and player – has his own scars thanks to the crash that put Anna in a coma. Helping her move on from her failed marriage, and create a new life, sounds like a perfect distraction. So when he needs a new roommate, he invites Anna to begin her new life with him.
Although their lives may have been put on pause, together they just might find a way to heal.

Audio Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I was excited to read alllllllll about Leif after reading Repeat.  You do not need to read that book to follow along as they are both standalone stories.

Anna wakes up and finds out she has been in a coma for a LONG time.  Not only has she been out but so has her husband *Wink* and he came home with some baggage.  Anna is not one to stand by and do nothing.  She moves on with her life.  The strange part of it all was that the one who helped her was also in the same accident as she was.

Leif felt for the angel in the bed.  He was doing all her could to help her and when she wakes up, he is stunned stupid to see her standing on his front step.  He is drawn to her but…well…women are horrible beasts so he needs to stay away….but he cant because its Anna and she isn’t a horrible beast.

The two have a back-and-forth chemistry with the pushing forward and step backward.  There were a few times I felt it was a bit much the back and forth.  When they finally decide to step into the new territory of roommates with benefits things get spicey quickly!!  I enjoyed Leif showing her men are worth the trouble and she shows him not all women are like his ex-too.  They both find what they need and what they have been missing their entire life with their roommate.

I loved Anna’s mom and her matchmaking behind the scenes.  This woman is a GEM!!  She knew what buttons to push to get BOTH of them out of their heads and into each other’s pants!!

Audio Review by Twinsie Melinda 

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

I enjoyed listening to this book. Andi Arndt is one of my favorite narrators and she did a great job with the audio.  Her transitions between characters was seamless. Andi did well with keeping me engaged in the story. 

I was so excited when I realized this was about Leif, Ed’s brother from Repeat.  I enjoyed seeing glimps of Ed and Clem also. Ok back to Leif and Anna.

Anna wakes up after being in a coma to find her world has been turned upside down. Not only has time slipped by but her hubby was so devastated she was in a coma he slept with her best friend. Yep what a great husband and friend.  

Leif was in the same accident that put Anna in a coma. We learn he not only helped her after the accident but checked on her and read to her at the hospital. 

Leif does not want to get involved with anyone after he had his heart shedded but Anna calls to him.  

I enjoyed seeing these two together and watching Leif try to prove not all men are self centered asses and Anna proving not all women will take his heart and shred it to pieces. I like their banter and chemistry. Leif may seem to the the bad boy but he was so loving toward Anna and his humor was entertaining.

#WOTR21 #NewRelease #SeriesStarter #SmallTownRomance- Perfect Risk, Mason Creek #1 by C.A. Harms

Title: Perfect Risk
Series: Mason Creek #1
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Small Town Romance
Release Date: April 8, 2021
Mason Creek, Montana is my home. It always has been and truth is, there is no place like it.

I can hide away in a big city, pretend as if I’m not drowning. I can ignore the sadness inside my heart that is begging for a change. But if I’m being honest, my sense of belonging has disappeared. I thought I wanted the big city life, the fast track and all the glamorous things. Turns out, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than home.

Coming back to help run my mom’s business gave me the perfect escape.

But there is one problem.

An unresolved past has a way of haunting anyone. Things can sure get complicated when the man that broke your heart all those years ago is now your new landlord.

It may get a little messy, I may regret my decision to stay…

But then again, this might just be the Perfect Risk.

“Will you stop laughing, it was awful.” I flopped down on my couch and buried my head in the throw pillow.

“Come on, Sadie, it can’t be that bad.” Anna had no idea.

“No, not bad at all, Ms. Murphy just found her son with his mouth on my tits but hey, it was nothing.”

“Okay so when you say on your tits, was he like smashed between them, or focusing on one at a time?”

“You are an asshole.” She was loving my humiliation, the sound of her laughter confirmed this. I know my best friend, and had the tables been turned she would have grabbed her shirt, put it on, and then managed to prance around as if nothing had happened. “You should have seen the look on her face. And then Will didn’t make things any better.”

“I’m sure he had a whole lot to say.”

“Too much.” His words were still ringing in my mind. It was almost as if his poor mother wasn’t standing at his side while he spewed things that furthered my humiliation. I don’t think I will ever be able to face her without feeling like a complete idiot.

“She is a woman, she was married to one of the Murphy men for years, I think she is completely aware of their powers.” Anna was trying to make me feel better and she was failing. “I’m sure she’s already forgotten about what she saw.”

“Sure, yeah, I’m sure.” Not even close. “I’m sure that the idea of me having premarital sex with her son in his garage is the furthest thing from her mind. Not to mention she found him sucking on my nipple.”

Anna’s laugh echoed even louder, accompanied by a snort. “Oh, so he was mid-suck?”

“I’m hanging up on you now.” I ended the call to the sounds of her uncontrollable laughter and didn’t feel any better about what had taken place only a short time ago.

The minute I looked up to find Wyatt’s mother and brother there I let my head hang low as I hurried out of the garage ignoring the protests of Wyatt. Almost tripping three times in my need to get inside quickly I practically slammed into my front door before righting myself and finally stepping inside.

I planned on hiding out here for days.

I can see it now, the next headline will read…

Our small-town hero was caught mid suck when his own mother broke through the pre-sexed haze during a steamy night in the garage.

Kill me now! I knew it was only a matter of time before my own mother got her hands on the information. Oh God, and my father…I felt sick!

#WOTR21 #Football #Series #Review #Audio – Fourth and Goal: Book 4 of the Love By the Yard Series by Michel Prince; Narration by Logan McAllister

Fourth and Goal: Book 4 of the Love By the Yard Series by [Michel Prince]

Warning: For Mature Adult Audiences 18+. Contains language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.

In book four of Love by the Yard: Beaumont Guthry, in his short time in the sport, prepares to step out of the shadow as a backup quarterback and into the spotlight as he takes over the Chicago Grizzlies. The team may be desperate for a quarterback, but Beau fears his style might get him benched before the first pass is in the air. For Beau, it will be the first time his father’s money won’t help to smooth over any missteps he makes.

The thirst for knowledge is what has kept Esme Carmichael in college for the last eight years. When her parents draw a line in the sand, forcing her to pick a degree and graduate, Esme realizes her biggest worry in the last decade has been could she swing more than two hours sleep a night.

Esme, instead of the four walls and security of a classroom, is faced with the future, one which petrifies her.
Meeting Beau seemed to be the perfect distraction she needed. What she didn’t count on was his past derailing their chance for a relationship—a relationship, she nor he signed up for. It was supposed to be a simple deal—sex—no strings, no complications.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.

Logan does an outstanding job of narrating for all the books in this series.  I enjoy his natural and calm voice for each book.  He brings each character to life with his amazing smooth voice.

Esme…she is the best best friend a girl could have.  She is a hot mess of flittering all around the world and seems to lose interest in everything until she meets the new man whore drunk quarterback Beau.

Beau needs some ass kicking and Esme is the girl to do it.  LOL  He thinks he is all that and yes he is but he needs some humble pie as well. Which Esme is happy to do on the regular.

When these two meets and decide to have some simple friends with benefits action they never imagine love might happen too.  Beau has a lot of ghosts to deal with and Esme has a past boyfriend she needs to conquer before she can open her heart to this reformed playboy.

Beau has never had someone value him for more then what he can give or buy them.  Esme has never had a man be able to keep her attention for more than 1 night at a time.  When they both start to learn to lean one each other they are freaking out but also hoping maybe more can come to it.

I loved the two and enjoyed their play time but was also screaming at them to JUST ADMIT THEY LOVE EACH OTHER DAMN IT!!!!  The two are another amazing and fun.  They are a great addition to the series but Dalton is still my baby daddy!!!

Michel Prince is an author who graduated with a bachelor degree in History and Political Science. Michel writes young adult and adult paranormal romance as well as contemporary romance.

With characters yelling “It’s my turn damn it!!!” She tries to explain to them that alas, she can only type a hundred and twenty words a minute and they will have wait their turn. She knows eventually they find their way out of her head and to her fingertips and she looks forward to sharing them with you.

When Michel can suppress the voices in her head she can be found at a scouting event or cheering for her son in a variety of sports. She would like to thank her family for always being in her corner and especially her husband for supporting her every dream and never letting her give up.

Michel is a member of RWA Pro and Midwest Fiction Writers. In 2013 she was awarded Elite Status with Rebel Ink Press. She lives in the Twin Cities with her husband, son, and cat.

#CoverReveal #SmallTownRomance #EnemiesToLovers #SportsRomance #ComingSoon #Blitz – BLITZ by A.M. Williams

Cover Credit: Sarah Kil Creative; Lindee Robinson Photography

One sexy football player. One sassy small town librarian.

Is there any hope for happily ever after?

Charlie

HEA? No way.

Jasper Sutton is the reason I watched my dream go up in smoke.

I don’t care that he’s ridiculously hot and the night we met was one of the best of my life. The fact that he’s also funny and easy to talk to means next to nothing.

He tore all my hopes to shreds when he bought the old library to turn it into a gym.

I can’t forgive him.

Jasper

Charlotte “Charlie” Drake is something else. And I don’t mean that as a compliment.

She might be gorgeous and sexy, but she’s also headstrong and stubborn.

I get it–I messed up. I didn’t have all the facts and took things too far.

But I’m crazy about her. She’s the only woman who looked past my name and reputation to see the real me. I want to prove to her that I’m serious, I’m sorry, and we could be good together.

What does it take to get over the ultimate fumble and still win the game?

Goodreads

A.M. Williams is just a simple girl from the south that found herself living abroad. When she’s not annoying her cat or reading, she’s spending time with her husband and traveling as much as possible. She has a serious case of wanderlust and wants to go as many places as possible while she can. She loves Cheerwine, sweet tea, and North Carolina (eastern style) BBQ as well as those crystal clear waters on the North Carolina coast.

#WOTR21 #BoxSet #BadBoys – Dirty Boys: Bad Boys Rock Star Romance Box Set by Jade C. Jamison

Book Cover

99 cents till release day!

Do you love rock star romance?
Bad boy rock star gods?
The women who complete them?
Oh, and do you like your stories steamier than a sauna?

Then dig into this box set containing four full-length rock star romance novels and discover why Jade’s readers call her the “Queen of Rockstar Romance.”

Bullet
Valerie is a naïve college freshman when she meets on-the-rise rock star Ethan, an idealistic, handsome, reckless young man who’s captured her heart. She doesn’t give up on him and eventually his walls crumble down. By the time Valerie has given herself to him completely, she discovers he’s damaged and may be beyond help. Can she save Ethan and their relationship before he implodes, or will he self-destruct and take her with him?

Everything But
High school English teacher Erin is stuck with the unwelcome job of filling in for the injured cheerleading coach, but she wants to back out when she discovers she has to be auctioned as a date during the annual spring fundraiser. She’s horrified to find her rock star crush Riley Schultz, former frontman of Spawn, will be playing emcee for the event, but she’s even more shocked that he also happens to be the highest bidder for her affections, and sparks ignite when she discovers that maybe their attraction is mutual…

On the Run
They say things come in threes…like sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Love is not part of that equation—but tell that to my heart.

From the first moment I met CJ Slavin, I fell for him hard. It was as if everything else in my world muted: the album my band was about to release, the coast-to-coast tour we were preparing for, all the adoring fans who were going to eat us up. Even the drama and bullsh*t from my bandmates couldn’t bring me down when CJ was around.

But he tells me I’m too young. And we’re going to be thousands of miles apart. Add to it, his adoring fans will drop to their knees for him.

So what’s a girl to do? At least I still have sex, drugs, and rock & roll…

Love and Lies
Casey never wanted to get divorced—and she definitely didn’t plan to go home again. But she needed a place to lick her wounds, so she headed back to her hometown, the one place on earth she swore she’d never return to. Spending time with her hypercritical mother spurs Casey to find a job quickly so she can get back on her feet—and that’s where she meets sexy Scott Wardell, a man who makes her heart beat faster even while stirring her anger.

As she gets to know Scott better, she discovers that he plays drums for a local rock band. He seems perfect for her…except maybe he hasn’t told her everything about the ex. And his creepy best friend isn’t doing him any favors, either. But even if Casey could handle those problems, she’s got her own ex and cold feet she needs to grapple with…

This box set also includes two bonus novellas: NO PLACE LIKE HOME from the Bullet series and BEATING HEARTS from the Vagabonds series.

No Place Like Home
Brad of metal band Fully Automatic has recently lost his mother to cancer and he finds himself unable to enjoy life anymore. With the help of his wife Val and his children, can he find his former zeal for living or is he destined to be numb and detached for the remainder of his days?

Beating Hearts
Brandon, an inexperienced young drummer for Kyle Summers’ band, is about to play his first festival, but first he needs to find out who’s stalking him. When he does, things just might get too hot to handle…

“This author does it right. She doesn’t just throw the rockstar title around. Nope, she gives her readers what they crave. You can go in knowing you’re gonna get the whole experience.” – Rosa, iScream Books, review for ON THE RUN

Are you READY? Which rock star god will you fall hardest for?

Kindle Edition

1. Dream 2. Play some music 3. Write 4. Blow readers away 5. Repeat

Jade C. Jamison is a steamy romance author, heavy metal fangirl, wife and mom, coffee connoisseur, cat lover, and vegan foodie–not necessarily in that order. She loves life and believes we learn our wisest lessons when reading, especially fiction. Her heroines are fierce, her heroes all but broken, both seeking redemption together. Whether those books are set in a small Colorado town or big city, she strives to take her readers’ breath away…one story at a time.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

LAWD!!  There is a lot of naughty happening in this little ditty.  Jude and Mia are a married couple who are lusting over Tiffany.  They want to invite her into their bed or see how she might respond to it any way.  They are both almost obsessed with Tiffany.  What’s the problem you ask?  Besides the fact she might not even be interested?  Oh ya know……she is his step sister…..yup taboo and dirty is this little read from JM.

The book was a great look into the addition of a person by a solid couple. The constant reassurance there is no jealousy, and the trust is still complete.  But also reassuring the new person this is not anything that will destroy the solid foundation but will increase their relationship.

Ok so the boring stuff about the book is right above…..now let’s get to the hawt as hell stuff??  Uhm yes the scenes are naughty and such a great read.  Be ready to gulp down the glass of water and turn the AC on high for this sexy novella by the queen of dirty!!

J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who hit USA Today with Wanted: An Outlaw Anthology. She loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.

#WOTR21 #Audio #review – The Ties that Bind, Ariel Kimber Book 4 by Mary Martel ; Melissa Schwairy (Narrator)

The Ties That Bind (An Ariel Kimber Novel Book 4) by [Mary Martel]

The Ties That Bind is book 4 in the Ariel Kimber Series.
Ariel Kimber isn’t like most seventeen year old girls. She’s different because she’s a witch with magic and it’s rare for females to hold magic anymore. She’s settling into her new place amongst her coven of guys while she’s settling into her new home at the same time.
The Council’s appearance into their lives has put everyone on edge. With good reason. Ariel is forced to meet with one of them on a regular basis so that they can learn from each other. Really, though, they just want to get to the bottom of where Ariel came from and she is more than happy to comply with them.
Because there is one thing she wants more than anything else in the world, and that’s to find the man who has been searching for her for years. Her biological father.
And Ariel is willing to go through any and every thing to find him.

This is the fourth book in a slow burn Reverse Harem Series.

Goodreads

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

Melissa Schwairy is such an amazing narrator.  I have loved every single book she has voiced.  She does an amazing job bringing the characters to life and projecting the voice perfectly for everyone.

Man, this book…in a word….INTENSE!!   There is a lot that goes on this this book plus a hella-lotta of set up for the next few books.  You better buckle in friends because shit is about to get crazy!!

Before I begin, I gotta say I LOVED seeing Ariel spend time with Dash *Blushing* I dunno what it is about him but he is just *Sigh* so sweet.  I also loved Ariel starting to date the other guys she hasn’t bonded with.  We see the bonds she has with Her Salt & Pepper Twins, Uncle Panty Thief, Tyson, and even Dash but Her date with Damien…seriously put him on my radar!!!  Then her time with Julian even if it was brief…..Yeah I loved it!!

You guys so much happens in this book…like for real…so much.  Rain makes an appearance and I am still not sure if he is the wonderful Father Ariel is hoping for OR a Sociopath…like I am on the fence and you will be too when you read this book.  We see more of the Council, Chucky and even *GASP* Annabelle appears in this book. *Grumbles under my breath about that skank*.

But the biggest reveal comes when we find out about Ariel and her Biological Witch Family….WHOOOOOOO that is some heavy stuff!!!  But I think learning more and more about the Council gives me the chills because Ariel is gonna have some serious problems if they find out her true nature as are her seven coven boyfriends!

I cannot wait for more because this series is getting just so much better and more complex with each story!!

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

#WOTR21 #Review #Novella #Cliffhanger – Seek, Project XOL Book #1 by Amabel Daniels

Seek

It’s been months since Cassidy Shaw has heard from her mother, Rosa, a world-renown scientist. When she does, it’s in the form of an urgent edict to retrieve a key. Arriving at Rosa’s apartment in Cincinnati, Cassidy encounters strangers. One man who seems determined to silence her. The other, could he be her savior?

Luke Dixon enters the fray, believing his neighbor is being attacked. Never one to ignore someone in distress, he’s then shocked to realize he’s the one needing rescue. Bound together through violence, Cassidy and Luke must come to trust each other as they embark on a search, armed only with the key and Rosa’s cryptic directions. It’s a journey with unexpected answers and decades-old research. A search with more questions…and a lethal enemy who returns when least expected.

 

Goodreads

I received this book from the author.

I love a new type of book and to me this book sounded new and exciting. A mystery to find out about Rosa and what’s up.

Cassidy gets a weird letter with a weirder vibe from her distant, adoptive mom. When she goes to her apartment to get what her mom wants, she is attacked but soon saved by a hot stranger who happens to be Rosa’s neighbor.

Luke is wondering why Rosa’s door is open when he hears a struggle. Soon he is fighting for his and this strange lady’s life. They think they are ok and then end up on the run after an explosion rocks them.

While running they two soon start to discover a bit about the other while also trying to stay a bit distant because they don’t know if the other is involved in the attack.

As the two start to put pieces together they are even more lost as to who the other is…her with her secret Mr. Zero and him with his past life of “Murder” but they are still on the run trying to figure out what Rosa’s gotten them involved in!!

Amabel Daniels lives in Northwest Ohio with her patient husband, three adventurous daughters, and a collection of too many cats and dogs. Although she holds a Master’s degree in Ecology, her true love is finding a good book. When she isn’t spending time outdoors, she’s busy brewing up her next novel, usually as she lets her mind run off with the addictive words of “what if…”
