Megan Slays Vampires: A Vampire Shifter Romance by [Sophie Stern]

If monsters aren’t real, why do I kill so many of them?

I’ve spent the last five years training as a vampire hunter. My goal is to hunt, maim, and kill as many of the bastards as I can. They’re infecting our city and each time I manage to kill one, five more spring up in its place. The vampire hunter’s council is breathing down my neck, but I’m already working 25 hours a day, eight days a week.

Then one night, everything changes.

I make a mistake and a vampire catches me. He doesn’t kill me, though. Instead, he brings me into his lair and he makes me question…everything.

What if everything I’ve ever been taught has been a lie?

What if the vampires aren’t the real monsters?

What if it’s me?

Megan Slays Vampires is a standalone steamy paranormal romance by Sophie Stern, author of Honeypot Darlings and Shifters of Rawr County. If you enjoy this story, check out her other vampire books: Vampire Kiss, Eternity, and Chaotic Wild.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Ok here goes.  I love Sophie. Period. Full Stop.  I want to be her best friend.  I want to hang out and have her tell me what is happening in that beautiful, creative brain.  I have been a reader of her LC Mortimer Zombie books for a bit.  I recently made the cross over to Sophie’s books annnnd I am in love.  Her stories hit my paranormal heart right in the happy place.

Megan is a hunter and working for “The man” to rid the world of the gross and terrible vamps/shifters/snake creatures/monsters/etc.  She is proud of what she does until an injury leaves her a bit weak. A mysterious and sexy as sin vampire with braids and delicious dark skin talks to her and leaves her with questions.  Megan is all WTF is happening to me?  I can’t be thinking about that dude!

Donal is stunned stupid at the sexy, curvy hunter who just killed his good friend, but he can’t help but take a sip off her to see why she is so different.  That one sip…pretty much ruined all chances of forgetting her.   He doesn’t know why she doesn’t know who she really is and is intrigued to find out.

When Donal and Megan meet again, he then helps her see what she has been blind to all along.  She learned the truth about what had happened to her as a child. She learned how “the man” she is working for isn’t as innocent as he seemed plus….she finds love in the most unusual place.  Ya’ll the “Love” stuff…..get some cold water ok…the thigh scene…yes please!!

I loved the constant twists and turns.  I also loved the new mythology that is given in the story. Like the difference between shape shifters and shifters.  I loved so many of the characters.  I need a Jewell and Kyle novella!!  The banter between Donal and Megan was wonderful!!  But I loved the sensitivity, and the creativity Sophie brings when we learn about Donal and what makes his special.

*Chef’s Kiss! I can’t wait for more books from her!

#NewRelease #Omegaverse #RH – Alpha Hunted by Crea Reitan

Alpha Hunted (Knotty & Sweet Omegaverse) by [Crea Reitan]

I lost everything in a freak accident. My entire family; everything I’d ever cared about – gone in an instant. Unable to bear the constant reminders and emptiness of my life, I moved across the country to dull the loss, hopefully falling into the anonymity of a large city where even an alpha could disappear.

Starting over was never in my plans. All I wanted was to blend in and let life pass me by. Live in my modest studio apartment with my mindless job as an absentee owner of a popular juice bar downtown.

I spent my days with headphones in as I worked through each machine at the gym, grabbing a juice from my cafe on the way home, and drowning myself in the solitude of my house.

And then I met the only thing I’d never managed to obtain with my pack – an omega who made everything in me spark. And in the next breath, a shy beta who made my most basic instincts rear up and want to wrap her in my arms and give her the world.

Try as I may, I can’t seem to run far enough away from either of them. Once we meet, something keeps pulling us back together at every corner. Just as I start to give in and wrap myself in their pack that consists of two other alphas, I find out that the freak accident that took my first pack from me wasn’t an accident at all.

And now I’m being hunted by the murderers who intend to finish the job.

This is a polyamorous story with content not suitable for those under 18 years of age due to graphic content.

Crea lives in upstate New York with her dog and husband. She has been writing since grade school, when her second grade teacher had her class keep writing journals. She has a habit of creating secondary, and often time tertiary, characters that take over her stories. When she can’t fall asleep at night, she thinks up new scenes for her characters to act out. This, of course, is how most of her meant-to-be-thrown-away characters tend to end up front and center – and utterly swoon-worthy! Don’t ask her how many book boyfriends she has…

When not writing, Crea is an avid reader. Her TBR pile is several hundred books high (don’t even look at her kindle wish list or the unread books on her tablet). Sometimes, she enjoys crafting; sometimes, exploring nature; sometimes, traveling. Mostly, she enjoys putting her characters on paper and breathing life into them. Oh, and sleeping. Crea loves to sleep!

Concede: Knights of Paradise MC by [S.J.  Chaynie ]

I’ve spent the last four years in a Catholic boarding school. A very different world from the one I have found myself being forced into. There is a dangerous game being played, and I haven no choice but to be under his protection. He’s the king, and expects me to bow just like all the others. The more he demands, the more I resist. He’s not just too old for me, or just the president of a motorcycle club. He’s my brother’s best friend, and if he wants me as his queen, he better prove he’s worthy enough for me to put on the crown.

This is an adult novel intended for mature readers.
Book 1 of the Knights of Paradise MC Series. Does end on a cliffhanger, part of a continuing series.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

First up, I saw a booktok trailer and was like “HEEEEY GIRL” to the authors.  I essentially asked nicely…cough cough begged…..for an ARC of this book.  MC is my JAM and it sounded like something I would love.  It hits all my favs…Best friend’s sibling/age gap/MC.  I was super thrilled when she said YES.  I got the book and downloaded thinking I would get a chapter or two in before I put it down to do housework.  PFT Housework be damned.  Maverick and Tanner had my FULL attention, but I was side eyeing Dom and Dani.  Don’t worry I got questions you two!!

Now I know people are haters for cliffhangers, but I love them.  I really do.  So, I will warn you this is a cliffy but it’s a good one.  Does that make sense?  Prolly not for you cliffy haters.  But for real, I loved it and where it dropped at is a good ending/beginning for the next story.

Ok so Maverick/Zeke and Tanner/Vix.  This book runs you through the gamete.  Tanner starts to story as a wide-eyed boarding school virgin with no idea who her brother is and especially what a MC Club is.  When the story cliffies, we see a strong woman who know what she wants and who she wants.  My favorite scene of the book is when she has had it with Maverick’s shit.  For Real!!  Our girl is over it and she tells him what is up.  It is up to him to make the changes because she is DONZO.  But my next favorite scene is when they are bed shopping for his room…Maverick is a dirty dirty boy!!!  He plays soooo dirty to get what he wants, and that is Tanner!

Maverick is the MC president, and he loves the lifestyle.  He doesn’t think he should settle down and honestly doesn’t really have any intensions.  However, Tanner makes him want more and importantly makes him FEEL more.  The feelings she causes in him are powerful and super confusing to the manwhore.

Now Dom is Tanners brother who is all “Hand off” buuuuut dude uhm you don’t seem to be keeping your hands off Mavericks little sister, Dani.  Pot Meet Kettle!!  I can’t wait to see what happens in book 2.  I think Mr. Dom is getting the much-needed eye opener he needs to claim what his heart desires most!

S.J. Chaynie is a new author who had a wild idea while sitting in the ocean under the Texas sky. She decided to write a book. She loves all things mystery, suspense, love, and betrayal, all mixed in with sarcasm and humor. Her first published book is Falcon Point: Deception, which is the first book in the Falcon Point Series. She hopes to bring all the feels through her stories to all those mystery/romance loving hearts!

Accidental P*rnstar by [Cindy  Tanner]

AMAZON BuyLink

My college career was going great…

Until it wasn’t.

I lost my job, scholarship, and apartment in a trifecta of crap luck.

The last thing I want to do is run back home to my parents with my tail tucked. As luck would have it, my old roommate, Mason Davis, has a compelling—if slightly unorthodox solution—to my financial dilemma.

His suggestion?

A live stream feed of me enjoying a little steamy fun with HIM. The smoking hot guy I’ve fantasized about countless times before.

Surely, a tenacious bookworm like me can figure out how to let go of her inhibitions for one night.

After all, going viral is a good thing… right?

ANGIE Review

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

Lawd ya’ll when Cindy showed me the title for this book I was cracking up. I couldn’t wait to read it. When she asked if I wanted an ARC…legit I jumped. I am so glad I did. This book has so many amazing lines and scenes. I was giggling on my chair on the deck. I legit gave the “Why are you looking at me” stare to my husband when he was all “Lets do something.” UHM NO Jules and Mason are making a PORN! LOL
SO Jules and Mason lived together with a snot and Mason moved out long before Jules. She was all kinds of a mess because on top of losing her housing she needs a job. She is at the club whichis never does and is drinking. She makes a fool of herself a couple times and thankfully Noah is there for them. LOL Jules and Mason reconnect and he offers her a room in his condo. Ya know the one he has also ready paid for. Well the comedy of what happens just needs to be read but needless to say Jules is not about t move in when…again …she has zero place to go.
Jules moves in and then Mason tells her is secret…ya know he does ALLFANS>>>GASP!! I know right!! SO after a quick chat he says he would love to scene with her for a cool $5K. When a girl is down a girl needs to do some drastic measures.
SO Mason and Jules start to blur the line between roommates/dating couple/work mates. They have some misunderstanding, jealousy, miscommunication, and of course a dash of “You trying to steal my girl”!!
The story was perfect. It was a great read and for sure I want a book on Mel and Noah.

Till Death Do Us Part (An Ariel Kimber Novel Book 7) by [Mary  Martel ]

AMAZON buy link

Ariel Kimber and her coven are under imminent threat from the Council. They are monsters, without fangs or horns, who hide behind their mantle of power, and they will do anything to get what they want.

The problem is, they want Ariel. They want her so badly that every other person around her is in danger just by being near her.

The Council forgot one very important fact though—Ariel Kimber is no victim. She’s a survivor, and the Council is stupid to think they can simply take her and destroy everything and everyone she loves.

She will do whatever it takes to keep her coven safe, even if she has to go through hell to do it. They are all more than willing to fight alongside her because she’s finally agreed to spend the rest of her life tied to them in every way possible.

They have a lot to fight for.

The goal is to make it to the other side without losing anyone along the way because they want their happily ever after.

And they want to be able to say till death do us part.

But life for Ariel Kimber is never that easy.

And it never will be.

ANGIE’s Review –

I received this book from the author for free for an honest review by that sexy bitch Mary Martel.

Between texting Mary to yell at her and texting her to sob to her…this book was everything fans of the series want to read. There is so much that happens in this book to move the story forward and answer questions but start so many new ones.
I am so afraid to spoiler this book that I am going to keep my review kinda vague in parts. I want you to be just as devasted and excited as I was. Lemme just say prepare for Chapters 14-17 because they are so heavy. My stomach was in KNOT…KNOTS…..tears….heartbreak….guys…so much happens in this part of the book.
Now don’t go thinking the rest of the book isn’t important because LAWD it is. There are so many parts of the book I need to discuss like Rain, Romero, and Isobel. I mean Jesus these 3. The crazy triangle!!!
Can I saw Q and Ariel arguing are pretty epic and as always hilarious for you the reader. Q is my favorite of the coven guys and of course he is an epic fuck up with his girl and understanding when she needs girly stuff. But I love Damien and Jules more this novel. Jules for standing up to Rain and Damien for understanding Ariel and her girl ways. Tyson is the best friend we need and love. Dash…sigh,,,he is just sensitive Dash. The twins made my heart so happy in this book. They open up and really show us how much they love being loved by Ariel. They understand her fears and do everything to let her know she is perfect for them.
The Council…guys…so much shit happens this book and shit will reverberate after shit that happens this book. I am so nervous and excited for what will happen after this book. GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Vague reviews so as to not post spoilers!!!!!! Its so tough!!! But I need you to be just as devastated and broken as I was!
There was a new character introduced…..friends……your heart….it will be destroyed and yet it will make everything right with the coven. Does that make sense? It will trust me. I loved and hated this character. Loved them because of who they are but hated their back story. If they are involved in the Council it cant be a good one right????
As always I am a needy reader and want so much more. I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Rebel (Alumbra Pack Book 1) by [AJ Renee, Angie Wade]

AMAZON buy link

He’d long given upon finding his mate, but when he does, is she too broken to trust their bond?
Meeting boys after curfew should have been innocent fun, but it turned Rosalia’s life upside down. Escaping the werewolf compound wasn’t an option, so she did her best to survive the twisted hell she’d been dragged to. Her dreams of having a real chance at life had been smothered by guilt and the realization she was too broken, even if she ever did see her loved ones again.
Peter had nearly given up on finding his true mate, but a mission to rescue a pack member’s sister leads him to Rosalia. If he’d known why she’d been impossible to locate, he would have left the pack in his beta’s care and moved mountains to save her sooner.
He must find the strength to rein in his wolf’s need to claim her and give her the necessary space to heal. Her body, heart, and wolf are at odds, with merely a thin string keeping her tattered spirit from coming apart. Can Rosalia learn to trust Peter, or are the jagged, invisible scars too deep?

Angie’s Review –

I purchased this book.
I LOVED PETER!! I mean I have loved him since meeting him in the Broderick series. You do not have to read the Broderick series to read this book OR the following books in the series BUT I highly suggest it so you understand the relationships.
Peter…he is the best alpha. He loves his pack and those he deems pack like the witches in the Broderick coven. He is fierce in protecting those he loves. He is happy with his life, but he yearns for his mate. He is happy for Brandy and her siblings but…yeah why can’t he find HERE!!! Our calm cool alpha is outta his mind lately and he is not sure WHY. He can’t focus and is just hot tempered which is not Peter. When the pack and the coven go to save some women, he is beyond mad to see his mate there…in the room of abused and battered women AND a sister to Claudia.
Rosalie is the brave one of the group. She has done lots of things that many would find disgusting to survive abuse and horrors. When she realizes they are being rescued and its by her sister, she is overjoyed and then…..she sees him. The large wolf is her mate. She is scared given she has seen how alpha tend to treat women.
Rosie and Peter have a lot to overcome but Peter becomes more the man we know and love. He is doing everything to make sure she knows she is safe and wanted no matter what she as been through. He is doing everything to put her at ease to him and his caring. The waters these two navigate was pretty wicked at times but Peter never faulters. GUYS I loved him even more!!! GAH!! PETER!!!
I am so excited for this series and absolutely love that the Brodericks are just as front and center in this series as Peter’s pack was in their story. But I really wanna know whats up with Xander but Lea and Joel!! EEEEP!!!!
I cannot wait!!

The Dragon's Fake Fiancée (Shifters of Rawr County Book 6) by [Sophie Stern]

AMAZON buy link

Cosmo has been living in Rawr County for the last 10 years because he hates himself and wants to be miserable. Dragon Isle was no good for him. Everyone there was too happy and joyful. A dragon like him deserves to be unhappy.

When his family tries to set him up with a childhood friend to date, he blurts out a lie: he’s engaged.

It’s not true.

But when they surprise him with an unexpected visit, he grabs his nearest employee, Athena, and introduces her as his fiancée.

What could possibly go wrong?

Angie’s Review –

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

Ok here goes. So Sophie is about the most adorable person I have ever met. I have read several of her alter ego books but have been looking to sink my teeth into on of these books but life man…not enough time in the day, right? SO, she offered this ARC and I jumped. Its in a “series” but all the books can be read in any order. I didn’t have any issues reading the 3 or 4th book in the series. Every side character was briefly introduced and then off we went.
Cosmo and Athena…. holy hawt burn. Holy pants melting off…. holy office spankings. Oh yeah you read that right…. OFFICE. SPANKING!
Ok ok so the Office Spanking was to get you hooked now lets really get down to the story, shall we??
Cosmo is a grumpy…..errrr……brooding dragon. His friends are all mating up and he is in love with his secretary who is in love with Benjamin. UGH Gross Benny. Anyway, he looks forward to seeing her every single day. Since she is his paralegal, it does happen all the time.
Althena is head over heels in love with her boss. Ya know, the dragon. She does everything can can to be close to him like going back to school to be a paralegal. She is so afraid of looking like the pathetic girl she is, and maybe in hopes of making him jealous, she makes but a boyfriend.
One phone call and visit from Cosmo’s family changes EVERYTHING for them. Cosmos mom and dad want him to come home to meet another chick to possible settle him down on Dragon Isle to have some dragon babies. Cosmo is not down with this idea, so he throws Athena under the bus and she goes along with it.
I mean they live together for a week and pretend to be getting married. They know so much about the other how can it go wrong?? LAWD the feelings that come rolling off each of them not knowing how the other really feels. The chemistry was so thick but the slow burn…….I almost combusted!!!
This story was sooooo good. I sat and devoured it in a couple hours. Now I need to grab the other books in the series and I am so looking forward to Jennifer, The Red Panda’s book with Lewis!!!

Outcast (The Pack Prophecy Book 1) by [R.L. Caulder]

AMAZON buy link

“The arrival of the Prophetess will bring both hope and destruction for the wolves of the world.

She alone will be able to save them–or damn them.”

The dark prophecy that has been passed down since the first pack of shifters is coming to fruition– and I am at the center of it.

An orphaned human taken in by a pack of wolves. The fate of their existence in my hands.

I’ve been treated as the dirt beneath the pack’s paws for years.

Will they be able to accept my new role when my powers surface? Will I be able to forgive them enough to help them?

The bright spot amongst all the turmoil…finding my three fated. Until one of them rejects our bond.

The one thing I know for sure…death is coming for us all, soon, and the person responsible for it? Their betrayal is going to alter the shifter world forever.

I’ll conquer my powers, protect the packs, and live happily ever after with my men, right?

Wrong.

No one is prepared for the vile truths of my visions to come to light.

***

Author Note: This book has a 18+ warning and is intended for mature audiences. It is book one in The Pack Prophecy series which will end in a cliffhanger.

Angie’s Review –

I purchased this book and audio,

The narration of the story *Chef’s Kiss* was absolutely perfect. Heather and Jeffrey brought the characters to life 110%. I will be honest in that I LOVE Jeffrey’s audio and when I see his name, I am super excited.

I grabbed this book because R. L. Caulder will be attending a book signing I am going too. She has so many books to pick BUT this one had audio. It was the winner. I gotta admit chance is why I grabbed the book, but I am so addicted to Kira and her men.
I loved the fact this book was kinda a shifter’s version of Cinderella…I mean she is a gross human the Alpha and his wife, Maya, took in. But once the Alpha’s mate was killed by daimoma, he blames her and is keeping her in misery to punish her.
Kira had only known happiness the few years she was with Jameson and his mother, Maya. Once Maya was killed she was only bullied and teases horrible by all the wolves in the pack Jameson and Sophia were the worst ones to her. There was only one bright spot in her day. Milo always would protect her. He has made it clear he has feelings for her, but she knows once the full moon hits when he turns 21 just like the rest of the pack, he will find his mate and forget her. She guards her heart and hopes one day she can find happiness too.
The closer the pack comes to the next full moon, Kira notices Seth, Jameson’s bestie, looking at her like a pork chop. She is angry that NOW he admits he has feelings. Sorry Seth not happening. Kira does as she is always expected to do when the full moon hits and everyone changes….even KIRA!!!??? Milo, Seth, AND Jameson all run to her because they feel the pull to their “Fated Mate”. The wolves all see who for her she is but the men have issue except Milo. Seth soon realizes he needs to listen to his wolf but Jameson…well he is a dick. Mega dick who is so blinded with hatred for Kira.
Kira soon learns she is has the powers to save the shifters but a cliffy happens when she soon discovers what is happening and who is leading the daimoma.
I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

#NewRelease #MC #dark – Petra’s Biker by Misty Walker

I thought I had nothing left to give.

It took two dirty bikers to prove me wrong.

From USA Today bestselling author, Misty Walker, comes a dark, MMF MC romance.

Cameron Bixby was in her third year of residency at UMC of Southern Nevada when her entire world was stripped from her.

She was given a new name, Petra, and for two years, she was made the property of the worst kind of men who abused her until she was nothing but an empty shell.

Then the Royal Bastards MC stepped in and saved her.

Sly, club treasurer and resident hacker, and Moto, road captain and gearhead, were tasked with finding out who she was and what they should do with her.

The woman was skittish, fragile, and addicted to God knows what, so luring information from her took… unique tactics.

But as they coax her to health, they realize she’s so much more than the timid dove they rescued.

She’s strong, intelligent, and sexy as hell.

Suddenly, they aren’t sure if making her remember is the best idea.

Because Petra belongs in the world of an MC, but Cameron Bixby doesn’t.

*Petra’s Biker is the 5th book in the Reno Chapter of the RBMC. Each book stands alone but has interconnecting characters.

#WOTR22 #EnemiestoLovers #tattoo – Inked All Night book 2 Permanent Hangover Series by Michel Prince

Ink All Night (Permanent Hangover Book 2)

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

In book two of Permanent Hangover: Cain Washington would gladly pay a million dollars to have a shrew as nice as the one Shakespeare had to deal with. Because frankly, the one living next to him makes the Bard’s seem like a Sunday school teacher. As the chief fixer at the Permanent Hangover Tattoo Parlor and Bar, he’s cursed with the ability to see the beauty in everyone. Though his harpy of a neighbor tests and teases that ability on a daily basis, Cain’s never been one to let a challenge stop him. Especially with the flashes of the beautiful soul he can see beneath the surface that is keeping him mesmerized.

Bianca Jessel came to Minnesota for advancement and, more importantly, to escape the fact of who she is. Born ‘blessed’ with light skin, she found in the land of ten thousand lakes that she’s seen as everything, but a woman of color. Determined to keep it that way and assure a future blessing for her own children, she chooses her men based on a list of criteria. Sadly, the one person she wants the most has one glaring disqualifier. Too bad he lives next door.

After years of conditioning, and with the lies rapidly catching up to her, can Bianca push past the voice of her grandmother admonishing every aspect of who she is? Can Cain show that her beauty is not only inside her, but in the skin she tries to deny? Or will the decades of self-hate bring a halt to an everlasting love before it has a chance to start? And could the lies turn into a dangerous situation instead of one girl’s misguided musings of one’s worth?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this ebook and audio book.

Lemme start by saying I loved the narrator and the narration of the story.  Logan did a great job varying up the different characters and their voices for me during the audio listening.

Ok so this book…..so complex….I had to sit on it for a few days to think about what I was going to share with you and why its taken me so long.  One word – Bianca!!  Man I just did not like her.  But you see my 5 star rating and are like uhm Angie Explain yourself here.  LOL  Give me a second and I will.

Bianca.  She is a mess.  I mean a MESSSSSS!!  The hate she has for herself makes her as cuddly as a porcupine.  She has an end game and that is it…marry a rich white guy (with a cough I imagine) so she can be set for life.  The issue is, she is also hiding more and more of herself with each failed relationship because …well…because she a black.  Now I know you’re all like ..uhm Angie ..calm down and let me explain.  Bianca’s grandmother did a number on her.  She told her she was a blessing because her light skin made her undeterminable.  She could be passed off as Italian, Jewish, etc but no one would think she was black.    This is where my view of her changed.  I felt bad for her.  I mean she was never able to embrace what made her an awesome person because people could find out she was black.   I can’t imagine being raised and being told to look down on people with the same skin coloring as your own and as your parents.

Cain…omg did I love him in book 1 annnd my love for the tattoo parlor player didn’t stop but wait…is he not the player he pretends to be?  What is he a soft and gushy sweetheart after all???  Cain is not at all threatened by Bianca and her nonsense.  In fact, he picks up on her and all that she does to push him away.  After a night when Bianca needed help, Cain was right there to rescue her like he does with so many women he meets.  Cain is there to break down Bianca’s walls and even help her see what a beautiful soul she is when she stops putting up the wall and facade.

Cain and Bianca start to explore where the relationship could go but Cain is all the while afraid she will hurt him and Bianca is afraid people will see her different for living as an openly black women.  The twists and turns in the story were great.  Catching up with the Permanent Hanger over crew was amazing.  I don’t know if I want Puck or Sarah’s book next.  Both are going to be such a great read but I kinda hope its Puck and his naps…lol

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.

#WOTR22 #SeriesStarter #Tattoo – Two Ink Minimum book 1 of Permanent Ink Series by Michel Prince.

Two Ink Minimum (Permanent Hangover Book 1)

Warning: For Adults 18+. Contains wording and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.

In book one of Permanent Hangover: All Finn Gardner wanted was a breath of fresh air when he stepped into the alley behind the Permanent Hangover Bar and Tattoo Parlor. At first sight, he’d thought it was just another homeless person to shoo away from the building. Instead, he found someone who needed help—his help.

Having been given a second chance himself, Finn believes in paying it forward. The Hangover has taken more than one lost soul in over the years.

Bailey Parson needed to get away. She left her life in Chicago behind and escaped to St. Paul, but she never once thought far enough ahead to what her next step would be when she arrived there. To her, what she was running from, was much more to worry about than some half-baked plan. After a month stuck on the streets, a new need arises as the temperature started to drop—survival.

Given a chance by a stranger, Bailey works to find her way. Not only winning over customers and the staff with her smart wit and empathy, she wins over the standoffish tattoo artist.

Keeping their relationship forward focused, Finn hoped to avoid both of their baggage. However, when Bailey’s past threatens to destroy everything they built together, Finn’s left with decisions to make. Does he give up the beautiful curvy woman, the only one whose touch calms him? How much of his dark past would he need to unlock to save her? A past with the potential to destroy what they have together.

More importantly, can the lovers turn the scars of the past into a design strong enough to see them through any challenge? Or will the permanent ink leave them with open wounds and no chance of healing?

“Nevaeh is an outlet. One that needs little attention,” he confessed as his chest pressed against her back. The warmth leached from her, melting more than the flurries from the touch. Brushing her hair to the side his fingers tickled her neck as he leaned down.

“What did you do with her?”

“You want to know how I touched her? Every detail?”

Her eyes fluttered as his voice got harsh.

“I make her face away from me.” His hands slid down Bailey’s arms, and once again he wrapped his fingers around her wrists. This time he brought them above her head and placed her palms flat on the door. Hardness pressed against her mid-back, dwarfed by his height and encompassed by him, heat leached from his body to hers. “She grips the top of the bathroom stall. I don’t want her to look at me. Talk to me. The moans she makes annoy me to the point I almost stop, but my body protests. It wants me deeper inside. Pounding at an ungodly pace because all I want to do is get away from her.”

“Why do you do it then?” Bailey’s voice struggled to escape her lips. The gooseflesh wasn’t coming from the cold. Her core ached at the vision he’d placed in her head. Even with the cruelty, she wanted the touch. Yearned for it to the point her legs weakened.

“Punishment.”

Bailey turned around to face him. “For you or me?”

Finn leaned down, and for the first time in her life, a man touched her in a way that didn’t make her skin crawl. Cupping her cheeks, he dipped his head. Her heart beat hard against her chest and blood rushed to her lips causing them to throb in anticipation.

“I don’t like to be touched. It burns me in a way I can’t stand,” he said as his lips caressed hers with an absent touch. “She doesn’t require much. Whether it’s her mouth, ass, or pussy, she is a receptacle more efficient than my hand.”

“You don’t even like to touch yourself?” Bailey asked as her hands itched to reach for him and feel his body. No touch rule. One she hadn’t seen before. How degrading she thought and realized he was holding her.

“I like the thought of touching you, Bay. A little too much.”

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

Friends.  I finished this audio book and had to sit and think about my review.  There is so much happening in this slow burn of a love story ….I mean….WOWZERS!!!

Bay and Finn are not your ordinary H/h of a love story.  They are both broken in a way and that brokenness affects how they deal with people.  Finn cannot stand to be touched and Bay just doesn’t trust or doesnt believe people  don’t  have an ulterior motive.  No one is nice for nothing.

Finn is in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people.  He serves his time and comes out.  He is living but in black and white.  He has lost the ability to live life in color…until Bay.  When he sees her, he has the need to help her.

Bay is running for a really bad situation.  The more we learn of her past, the more we are angry for her.  When Finn offers to let her move in to his spare apartment little did they known this blooming friendship would become so much more for each of these broken souls.

Seeing these two fight the connection for fear of running what they have built made my heart ache for that finally first kiss!!  GAH!!  It was so sweet and perfect.  As the story builds and we see their relationship move forward we know their pasts will come back to haunt them.  When we learn who helped Finn, I was stunned.  When we see Bay is afraid of her past I literally yelled “you are stupid!!  DO NOT LEAVE HIM!!!!”  LOL  (That isn’t a spoiler so don’t worry!!)

Their story is full of happiness and healing.  I really enjoyed listening to the audio narration. He did a great job expressing the feelings of both characters.

I love the story and the side characters are amazing.  Michel said there is a new book coming out soon and I cannot wait to see who it is about.  I mean, I don’t think I can guess or even choose!!

#NewRelease #ReleaseDay – Craving Justice, Brothers of Justice book 1 by Fiona Archer

Powerful millionaire falls for the nerdy, warm-hearted daughter of his business rival.

Seth Justice plays to win. Rule breaker. Former street kid from Sydney. Now a technology mogul in Seattle. He’s negotiated the deal of his life, selling his company for a fortune.

Not part of the contract is Harper Fox, the buyer’s sweet, klutzy daughter. For an overprotective, commanding man like Seth, Harper with her charming mix of vulnerability and spirit, is irresistible.

When a hidden enemy attacks the new life Seth and his adopted brothers have built, loyalties are tested, threatening not only his developing relationship with Harper, but also the last remaining ties with his brothers. At the moment of truth, Seth must decide if the woman who unlocked his fortress-like heart is his enemy’s accomplice.

After a lifetime of disappointing her cold, judgmental parents, Harper created a new family with close friends and her café’s eccentric staff. She’s content-ish in her safe, boring world.

That is, until Seth, with his panty-melting Aussie accent and masterful stare entices her to take a chance–on him. Seth’s confident, take-charge attitude awakens a need in Harper that leaves her hungry for more.

When she finds herself in mortal danger, will the man she’s trusted with her heart believe in her?

#NewRelease #MM #RH #Shifter – A Lick of Magic by Crea Reitan

A Lick of Magic (Satan's Touch Academy Book 1) by [Crea Reitan]

Sacred Tongue Academy. Or as the students call it, Satan’s Touch Academy.

Five best friends, a small coven of witches, embark on their culminating project for their graduate degree—to start and successfully run their own business. Their shop’s name? A Lick of Magic. And what are they selling? Why, only magically enhanced sex toys, of course.

E, Dev, Sin, Indie, and Crea have been thick as thieves since they met, and as the year starts with the launch of their shop, they expect it to go as any other. But it quickly becomes apparent this is not the smooth sailing final year they all planned as they’re sucked into the school’s hidden secret society. Especially when they meet a group of sexy as Hell men that they’re sure cannot be human. Not being human isn’t a big deal, of course – not in their world. But why are they pretending to be?

In a school known for its dark corners, growls in the dark, noises behind closed doors, and a death or two each year, the girls now have to add ‘staying off the radar of the society that’s proving to be anything than what it appears’ to their agendas.

Five book series. Each will be following one of the five witches as they create their magical sex toys and the hilarity that comes with it, struggle to run a successful business and still keep their grades up, and you know – survive the claws of the secret society. All while falling into steamy relationships that they had not planned on.

This is a polyamorous story with content not suitable for those under 18 years of age due to graphic content.

Goodreads

Crea lives in upstate New York with her dog and husband. She has been writing since grade school, when her second grade teacher had her class keep writing journals. She has a habit of creating secondary, and often time tertiary, characters that take over her stories. When she can’t fall asleep at night, she thinks up new scenes for her characters to act out. This, of course, is how most of her meant-to-be-thrown-away characters tend to end up front and center – and utterly swoon-worthy! Don’t ask her how many book boyfriends she has…

When not writing, Crea is an avid reader. Her TBR pile is several hundred books high (don’t even look at her kindle wish list or the unread books on her tablet). Sometimes, she enjoys crafting; sometimes, exploring nature; sometimes, traveling. Mostly, she enjoys putting her characters on paper and breathing life into them. Oh, and sleeping. Crea loves to sleep!
