Excerpt

Copyright 2021 @ A.M. Williams

“So,” I said after a few minutes of silence where we each sipped our coffee and ate what was in front of us, “are you vacationing near here?” Jasper tilted his head, and a smile curled the edges of his mouth. “You could say that. I’m staying with my dad.” I blinked at him. “And your dad is renting a house near here?” He laughed. Laughed! “Uh, no. He owns it.” I blinked at him again. “Oh. Did he move here recently?” Jasper tilted his head and I caught what looked like surprise widening his eyes slightly. “Do you know who I am?” I considered his question for a few moments, knowing that if he was asking me that then he was probably someone that was well known around here. But I was drawing a blank. Besides my friendship with Ruby and Vicky, I didn’t get out in town too much. I knew people, of course, because of going to events, working in the library, and being drug out to different festivals. But I wouldn’t consider anyone that I met in that way to be a friend. “You’re Jasper?” I finally said, not sure what else I should say. My tone was definitely questioning. He ave one sharp, quick laugh before shaking his head. “I’m Jasper Sutton.” I stared at him after his declaration. “I’m Charlie Drake.” If he was going to introduce himself like that, then I could too. His eyes narrowed. “No, I’m Jasper Sutton.” I wasn’t sure why he was putting emphasis on his name, but I was also realizing that his name did sound familiar. I just wasn’t sure why. “Okay…” I said slowly. “Nice to meet you.” Silence stretched between us before he asked, “You know, the name on the sign coming into town?” I studied him as I tried to recall the sign. I passed it every day, but I was to the point of not even noticing it anymore. But I remembered what he was referring to. The Welcome to Spring Hills sign also had a part that said Home of Jasper Sutton on it. My brow furrowed. “Were you named after someone famous?” He said nothing for a few moments before he started laughing. Hard. I shifted in my seat as he laughed, watching as he rubbed a hand over his face and hunched over the table. I wasn’t too sure why he was laughing; I just knew it was at me. I glanced around the cafe and saw that people were staring at him laughing and grew even more uncomfortable. Jasper slowly stopped laughing and shook his head, wheezing. “Are you for real?” “About what?” I asked, though I wasn’t too sure I wanted to know what he was asking. At this point, I wasn’t sure I wanted to be on this date or whatever it was for too much longer. “You really don’t know who I am?” I shook my head. He blinked at me before saying, “I’m Jasper Sutton. The name on the sign is mine. It was put there when I got drafted.” The drafted statement made me pause, but I couldn’t dwell on it too long because he kept talking. “You’ve been to the Tasty Freeze? Ever seen the Jasper on the menu? It’s the milkshake they named after me because it’s my favorite. What about the Burger Barn? The Jasper there is my favorite meal.” I stared at him. I probably shouldn’t have said what I said next, but my mind was short circuiting because all I could think of was the fact that he said he’d been drafted. Drafted for what? “I thought Jasper Sutton was some old guy that had died in a war sometime.”

#NewRelease #BlogTour #Review – The Insiders (The Insiders Trilogy, #1) by: Tijan

“Obsessed from page one! Another addicting read from Tijan.”
— Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times bestselling author

The Insiders, an all new page-turning and addictive romance from New York Times bestselling author Tijan, is available now!

Bailey is as normal as could be, with a genius IQ and a photographic memory. But still, normal for her. Then, things happen — a guy breaks into her house in the middle of the night to take her hostage. She learns her father is billionaire tech genius Peter Francis, the same guy she’s idolized all her life. She finds all this out when she meets dark, mysterious, and electrifying Kashton Colello. He’s also an associate of her father’s, and he gives Bailey two choices—go with him and meet her father or survive on her own because those kidnappers are going to try again.

It’s a no-brainer.

After this, three things become clear for Bailey:

1. She has to live at her father’s sprawling estate, complete with bodyguards and the best security that money can buy.

2. She’s no longer an only child. She has three siblings and has no idea what to do with them and vice versa.

3. She is being guarded by Kash himself. Personally guarded. And there is a lot of guarding going on there and some of it is going to drive her crazy.

A complete outsider in a world of wealth and decadence, Bailey has to find her way within a family that has more secrets than she could have imagined. One of these secrets could be deadly…

Review by: Twinsie Melinda

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley

I have been enjoying Tijan’s books lately and when I saw this one I jumped at the chance to read it.  It is the first in a Trilogy. The suspense was so high in this one and don’t even get me started on the tension between Kash and Bailey. Really I was on the edge reading this turning pages as fast as my eyes and brain would let me. 

Bailey Hayes was raised by a single mom. She grew up idolizing Tech Genius Peter Francis. Everything was going smooth for her and her mom until someone tried to kidnap her in the middle of the night and her world was turned upside down and inside out. Kashton Colello is assigned to guard her by her father the one the only Peter Francis. Bailey was now embedded in this new life away from her mother to protect her. Now living in Kash’s quarters on her dad’s estate she is getting to spend time with her half brothers and sister.  Bailey is a super smart with a photographic memory and now she is trying to figure everything out. Her life is like a puzzle that someone picked up put back in the box, shook it up and dumped the piece back out.  Now Bailey is trying to put her puzzle of life back together. She is trying to figure out how she fits into this family but it is hard when her dad will not communicate with her and Kash will not give her any information. Her brother is nice one minute then using her the next.

Kash is full of secrets and keeps them locked up like Fort Knox. No one gets in and nothing gets out.  He is there to protect the family and now Bailey. He caught Bailey’s eye from the first time she saw him. She could tell there was something about him the power just rolled off him and she liked it. Kash is a key player in this Family and I’m just waiting to hear the rest of this story. I have a feeling Kash does more for this family than they know or ever will know.

I still have so many questions about Kash and other things.  I do enjoy the chemistry that Kash and Bailey have. This was a great romantic thriller so many things that still need to be uncovered and puzzle pieces to add to this complex family and hidden secrets. This book had a unique plot that I am enjoying so far and I’m waiting to see how this plot thickens.  There are so many players in this story that I have no idea how it will go or who the evil doers will end up being.

A few of my favorites:

But there was one thing none of them knew, either. Not fully. Not Really. Not yet.

Me.

“No offense,” Kash snapped, “but her placement isn’t up to you, Peter, or anyone else. It’s up to me, me alone. And I say she stays here.”

Excerpt

We were heading out of Chicago, and maybe another half hour or so from the small town where my mom and I lived. 

Wait. Second thought—where we used to live? 

What would my mom do now? Could Chrissy Hayes remain in that house after I was just attacked, almost taken hostage? I called my mother by all kinds of names—Chrissy Hayes, Chrissy, or Mom. Or, well, a whole other kind of names too, because to say she’s a character is putting it mildly. And we have an interesting relationship to say the least. 

I might be deflecting here. 

Numb. I was numb. I should be pissing my pants, but instead I’m ruminating over how I refer to my mother. 

Could I stay in that house after what just happened? 

I’d been planning to spend time with Chrissy, helping with the house and working at the local computer store to make some extra money before I left for school. But now . . . fuck if I knew. 

Myriad curses went through my mind as I realized Chrissy would have to move. 

Shivers pierced me as I went over what had happened tonight, but then we were pulling into a driveway, next to a booth. A large gate barricaded us from moving forward. 

Official police business, my tech ass. 

Then again, nothing seemed official. I was told that I was being taken to my mother, but I left with two detectives. Bright and Wilson. They introduced themselves, then said she couldn’t see me in the hospital. They didn’t explain why, but I was to go with them to see her. 

I went. 

I was in the backseat of their unmarked car a few minutes later. 

Bright’s window rolled down. She flashed her badge. “We’re expected.” 

The attendant nodded, hitting a button. The gate opened, showing a campus of buildings behind it. Some made of dark red brick. Some seemingly made of reflective windows, top to bottom. Some painted totally black. A large parking lot sat in the middle of the buildings. “Phoenix Tech” was on a sign in front of the first building, but we went past, heading around it and toward a smaller building on the opposite end of the lot. 

My tongue was glued to the back of my throat. We were at Phoenix Tech headquarters. 

I had yearned to get an internship there every year since fifth grade, and then through college. I kept applying, but they kept denying. Some might say I was being desperate. I prefer determined. It’s a quality that I feel is honorable. Plus, I wasn’t above hoping they’d take pity on me one day. It worked, because while I might not have been good enough to walk their hallways, I was good enough for them to give me charity. They awarded me the majority of my grants for undergrad, so I’d been able to go to college debt free. I’d been expecting that to change for graduate school, but it hadn’t. Or, well, it kind of had. 

I was hired as a graduate assistant, starting in the fall, which gave me a stipend, but the rest was covered by another scholarship from Phoenix Tech. 

Phoenix Tech was one of the world’s leading companies on cyber security. I was going into information systems, which was close enough. A job here would be a dream. 

“My mom is here?” I asked, when Bright parked, and both her and Wilson got out of the vehicle. 

Neither answered. 

Bright opened my back door and motioned for me, slipping her sunglasses over her eyes. “It’s time for you to find out some answers.”

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

I love this Mafia family. Karini stole my heart from jump. Really, she was sassy and boy does she keep Tank on his toes. Tank I was iffy about at first but man did he shine after he decided to make it known where he stood.

Tank and FBI informant placed in the fold of a Mafia family. With orders to take out the Mafia Princess. One problem Tank was so deep he really got to see how this family operated Blood & Loyalty. He was. Put in charge of protecting Kartini by her father yep, the same girl he was supposed to take out.

Kartini is a mafia warrior she likes being protected but push comes to shove she can hold her own and shows she is a mafia princess. She still likes to get into mischief and a certain bodyguard a bit of trouble and sass.

I loved Tank and Kartini. They had that connection from the start but Tank had. A job to do and Kartini was having fun keeping him on his toes. I have to say I really enjoyed all the characters in this book. I think I need to go back and read the beginning of this series.

A few of my favorites:

“One day, you’ll have to decide if you’re willing to burn the world for one person or if your job means so much to you – your past – that you’re willing to fuck up your future. That’s your crown. That’s your baggage. That’s your cross to bear.”

“I love you, Tiny. I will always love you more than my life, more than my next breath – blood staining your hands or not. You’re mine.”

Excerpt

The door slammed. 

“Honey, I’m home…” I said to myself with a grin. 

I had a bottle of wine out on the living room table, my shoes on the glass as I leaned back and took a swig from my goblet—because why not get fancy at two in the afternoon? 

“It’s ten a.m,” came Tank’s annoyed voice. 

Or ten in the morning…whoops.

“I don’t own a watch.” I shrugged. 

“What’s that on your left wrist, then?”

“Oh, that?” I shrugged. “It’s an Apple watch used strictly for heart rate and exercise purposes.”

“Exercise to you is opening your mouth and closing it, Tiny.” He made it farther into the room, and I tried…I really did. I tried not to check him out. 

Not to stare at his golden skin. 

His bulging biceps beneath his plain black t-shirt. 

The new ink poking out from the V of that same shirt. 

Would he get the Abandonato crest like the rest of the Family? 

I shivered. 

He would look so hot with it across his chest. 

Our crest. 

Mine. 

I shifted my eyes away too slowly, and he caught them with his green-eyed gaze before he licked his full lips like he saw something else he wanted to lick. 

He always looked at me that way—with both annoyance and need. 

And I never knew how to take it. 

On one hand, I wanted to believe the need trumped any annoyance he felt for me, but I knew how he saw me. 

As a spoiled brat with a silver spoon stuck up her ass. 

And even worse now that I was older. 

Now that I was…different. 

“You added more blue.” He jutted his chin toward me and sat down on the chair across from the sofa I was lying on. 

“Yup.” I examined my black nail polish. “I felt like it wasn’t making a strong enough statement.”

He snorted out a laugh. “And what sort of statement were you going for? Gothic chic?”

“What?” I glared at him. “You don’t like it.”

“It’s not you.”

Disappointment threatened to choke me, and shame crawled up my neck by way of a harsh red flush. “You don’t know me.”

“I did.” He locked eyes with me. “Or I thought I did.”

#NewRelease #Review – Chaos and Love (A Reckless love Story #2) by Michelle A. Valentine

56828535. sy475

He’s chaos–on and off the field…

For hotshot quarterback, Luke Finnegan, Love and Chaos are always intertwined, and when he decides he’s through with relationships, a blonde artist with pink streaks in her hair convinces him sometimes love is worth the madness.

Miley St. Claire doesn’t do relationships. She’s seen the chaos they cause for those around her and she wants no part of that drama, which is why taking Luke Finnegan up on his offer to be friends with benefits is her ideal non-relationship. Trouble is, when she gets to know Luke, she finds herself missing him when he’s not around and quickly realizes, to her absolute horror, she’s falling for the sexy quarterback.


AUTHOR’S NOTE: Chaos and Love is a stand-alone college football romance with a lot of sass and sexy times. No cliffhanger. No Cheating. There’s definitely a HEA.


Interconnected stand-alone series order:
Rebellious and Reckless (Friends-to-Lovers romance)
Chaos and Love (Secret Dating Pact romance)
Dangerous and Disastrous (Enemies-to-Lovers romance)

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

So excited it’s Luke and Miley’s time. I loved Baker’s story but felt so bad for Luke he needs his HEA. I enjoyed the times we got to see Miley in Rebellious & Reckless. You do not have to read Baker’s book to enjoy Luke’s but it does have some back ground that’s nice to see first.

I was worried Luke would be the scorned football player but not at cell. He is great; Luke has a wonderful heart. He is more worried about those around him than most college aged guys. Luke is trying to piece back his family. After his mom passed his dad lost his mind and Luke lost not only his mom but his brother walked way from him and his dad.
Miley knows what she does and does not want. The wants to have from no strings attached. She saw firsthand what can happen to a family when one decides they no longer love the other. Miley is not willing to put her heart out there to get stomped on.

Miley and Luke are perfect for one another. But Miley has so many walls up and not willing to fall in love with anyone. Luke is determined to make this work and he feels he has enough love for both of them to wait until she realizes she is also in love with him. Only problem is there are people on the outside gunning to make sure they are not together then add Miley’s distrust issue and this could spell disaster for these two.

Luke and Miley had so much chemistry. I felt so bad for Luke with all his efforts of wooing Miley and her rejection. There were twist and turns not all bad in this one that made a great book. Let’s talk Milo I’m so intrigued and want to know his story because I’m telling you there has got to be a great one there. Really who is Milo and what makes him tick other than wanting a three some.

A few of my favorites:

“That’s pretty bold to assume there will be a point in time when I’m comfortable when being called your girlfriend.”
“I’m confident,” I correct. “You like me and one once you see I’ll treat you right, you’ll fall in love with me and this whole I’m refusing to be your girlfriend thing will be a distant memory.”

“Anyone with eyes is going to know why I was first drawn to you, Miley. Your personality has been a complete bonus, which only makes me like you even more.”

 

New York Times Best Selling author Michelle A. Valentine is a Central Ohio nurse turned author of erotic and New Adult romance. Her love of hard-rock music, tattoos and sexy musicians inspires her naughty characters. She loves connecting with her readers in “Valentine’s Vixens.”

When the police arrest Piper Winslow’s mother, claiming she stole a newborn infant seventeen years ago, Piper is shocked. When she learns she was the baby, her life is destroyed.

Piper’s birth family is about to reclaim her to a life as foreign as the birth name they gave her–Greta. What can Piper do while her world crashes around her? Run, of course.

And run she does. Piper’s plans are nearly foiled when her brother’s annoying best friend joins her. Despite close calls, they elude authorities. All she wants is time to digest her new fate.

Unfortunately, her birth family has unlimited resources and Piper is discovered. She is delivered to a family with a glowing image, but it turns out not all of them are happy to see her.

As Piper tries to cope in her new world, she hits obstacle after obstacle. This family that appears so perfect on the outside, harbors secrets, and nothing is as it seems…

Will she ever be fully accepted?
Will she ever fit in?
Will they ever stop calling her Greta?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I was excited to try a new trope as I have never read a “stole at birth” novel.   Plus, since I enjoy this author writing I was happy to give it a try.

Piper/Greta has a life altering news given to her.  When you think you know everything to find out you have been lied too is something else.  She is left a mess. She runs away to not have to deal with her “real” family. I am sure anyone would feel this way if they had been found to have been stolen.  She leaves with her best friend to try and figure things out.

The story is written so well and when we are given some little foreshadowing about things to come, I was shocked I did not figure things out!!  LOL  The story was well written and leaves you with lots of tears and emotions. 

I loved it the story.

#lifelongfriendship #womansfiction #allthefeels #twinsietenisetopfive —Firefly Lane by Kristen Hannah

From the New York Times bestselling author of On Mystic Lakecomes a powerful novel of love, loss, and the magic of friendship. . . .

In the turbulent summer of 1974, Kate Mularkey has accepted her place at the bottom of the eighth-grade social food chain. Then, to her amazement, the “coolest girl in the world” moves in across the street and wants to be her friend. Tully Hart seems to have it all—beauty, brains, ambition. On the surface they are as opposite as two people can be: Kate, doomed to be forever uncool, with a loving family who mortifies her at every turn. Tully, steeped in glamour and mystery, but with a secret that is destroying her. They make a pact to be best friends forever; by summer’s end they’ve become TullyandKate. Inseparable.

So begins Kristin Hannah’s magnificent new novel. Spanning more than three decades and playing out across the ever-changing face of the Pacific Northwest, Firefly Laneis the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the bulkhead of their lives.

From the beginning, Tully is desperate to prove her worth to the world. Abandoned by her mother at an early age, she longs to be loved unconditionally. In the glittering, big-hair era of the eighties, she looks to men to fill the void in her soul. But in the buttoned-down nineties, it is television news that captivates her. She will follow her own blind ambition to New York and around the globe, finding fame and success . . . and loneliness.

Kate knows early on that her life will be nothing special. Throughout college, she pretends to be driven by a need for success, but all she really wants is to fall in love and have children and live an ordinary life. In her own quiet way, Kate is as driven as Tully. What she doesn’t know is how being a wife and mother will change her . . . how she’ll lose sight of who she once was, and what she once wanted. And how much she’ll envy her famous best friend. . . .

For thirty years, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship—jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment. They think they’ve survived it all until a single act of betrayal tears them apart . . . and puts their courage and friendship to the ultimate test.

Firefly Lane is for anyone who ever drank Boone’s Farm apple wine while listening to Abba or Fleetwood Mac. More than a coming-of-age novel, it’s the story of a generation of women who were both blessed and cursed by choices. It’s about promises and secrets and betrayals. And ultimately, about the one person who really, truly knows you—and knows what has the power to hurt you . . . and heal you. Firefly Lane is a story you’ll never forget . . . one you’ll want to pass on to your best friend.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Some books need no introduction or review with all sorts of details. Firefly Lane is definitely one of those books. The story speaks for itself and it has a lot to say. I loved Tully and Kate and their story about lifelong friendship, finding yourself, and oh so much more. I wish there were a 10 star option! Words cannot express how utterly fantastic this book was. I’m not sure I’ve ever been full of so many emotions after finishing a book. I think Firefly Lane is a book every female should read. I know I will be recommending it to everyone!

#smalltownromance #enemiestolovers #partofaseries #interconnectedstandalones —Coppersmith Farmhouse by: Devney Perry

One old farmhouse brought them together. It could also tear them apart.

Gigi has just uprooted her whole world to start a new life. The unexpected gift of a farmhouse in small-town Montana is just what she and her daughter need to escape big-city loneliness. The last thing she needs is attitude from the town’s sheriff, the most perfectly attractive and ruggedly handsome man she’s ever laid eyes on—and a complete jerk.

Jess knows all about women like Gigi. Beautiful. Sexy. Scheming. She’s stolen his sanctuary, the farmhouse that should have been his. But along with a face full of freckles, she’s got a sharp wit and a backbone of steel—something he doesn’t discover until after making a complete fool of himself. If he can earn back her trust and win her heart, he might just find the home he’s always needed.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Gigi is a single mom in a new town, just trying to get settled in the farmhouse she inherited from a good friend. Things are going well until she meets Jess, the brooding town sheriff who seems to have a real problem with Gigi.
I loved these characters! While Georgia was more quiet and reserved, Jess knew what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to voice it. He was bossy but it was so effing HOT! And don’t even get me started on how sweet he was with, Roe, Gigi’s daughter. That, to me, made him even hotter!
I was hooked on this book from the first page. The authors words held me hostage and wouldn’t let me go until I finished the last line. Even though the story is over, I feel like I need more. It’s a good thing there are more books in this series. And I’m not quite sure how its possible, but I heard from a friend that they keep getting better. So, I guess I’m off to read The Clover Chapel, book 2 in the series.
