#AudioReview – Mason by Tijan

Mason: A Fallen Crest Prequel (Fallen Crest, Book .5)

Mason Kade is not known to be nice. He is ruthless, manipulative, and unforgiving. Most will say that he is an a**hole and he is to those that cross him or cross his loved ones. However, he does not want to be who he is. He does not enjoy hurting others, but there is no limit to the lengths he will go to protect himself and his brother.

This is the story of how he came to be and this is why so many love Mason Kade.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

Audio review of book I purchased.

What a great lead into a series.  We get to know Mason and Logan Kade.  After listening to this story I can understand why these boys are the way they are.  After all the heartbreak they have had they fell they need to protect their hearts. Even though each take a different approach to protecting it they are doing what they need to not to be heart again.

Mason and Logan dad is an ass bringing women home night after night. Then his wife leaves him which I don’t blame. These boys loved her and cared about her. They felt sorry for the way their dad treated her and made her cry all the time. So yes, I do have a bit of resentment towards their mom for packing up and leaving.

WOW did these boys have some girl drama. I can see some of these girls causing issues for them in the future. These girls are some of the most deceitful and cut throat girls I have read in a while.

I’m ready to jump into this series. I need to find out the rest of the story about Sam and how she jells with the Kade boys.

I enjoyed this audio book narrated by Graham Halstead. He kept my attention and pulled me into this story.

#Review #PartOfASeries —Breach by: KI Lynn

To keep myself safe I hide in the world and let life move around me.
My new partner, Nathan, isn’t safe. Far from it.
The darkness coils around him, hidden by a shield created by a blinding smile. But those who live in darkness see past the façade we create.
Even in darkness, there is light. A spark that ignites, then explodes.
Every filthy word from his mouth, every possessive touch—I crave them, need them. Violent and passionate and everything I need to fill the void inside me, but one thing is missing.
He can never love me.
More than my heart is on the line, and I don’t know if I’ll survive our breach.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️5 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Delilah is just going through the motions in life due to a horrendous childhood. What she is doing is not living, she is merely existing.
Nathan has been battling his demons for years and can’t move forward because of guilt.
2 severely damaged people who can no longer fight their attraction. They finally give in, but at what cost? He made her feel again. She seems to be breaking him further. Will they be able remove past their pasts and finally be happy? Or has too much damage been done in the past for that to even be a possibility?

This was the first book I’ve read by K.I. Lynn. I absolutely loved it! The storyline kept me riveted. I couldn’t put it down, rushing to get to the end. Once I got there I don’t think I have ever cussed so much at a books ending. It’s a major cliffhanger, but I feel it was the perfect way for it to end. I immediately one-clicked book 2, Infraction. I couldn’t wait to see where Nathan and Delilah’s story went from there.

About K.I. Lynn

K.I. Lynn is the USA Today Bestselling Author from The Bend Anthology and the Amazon Bestselling Series, Breach. She spent her life in the arts, everything from music to painting and ceramics, then to writing. Characters have always run around in her head, acting out their stories, but it wasn’t until later in life she would put them to pen. It would turn out to be the one thing she was really passionate about.

Since she began posting stories online, she’s garnered acclaim for her diverse stories and hard hitting writing style. Two stories and characters are never the same, her brain moving through different ideas faster than she can write them down as it also plots its quest for world domination…or cheese. Whichever is easier to obtain… Usually it’s cheese.

#Review #Standalone #DarkRomance ThrowbackThursday —Destroyed by: Pepper Winters



She has a secret.

I’m complicated. Not broken or ruined or running from a past I can’t face. Just complicated.

I thought my life couldn’t get any more tangled in deceit and confusion. But I hadn’t met him. I hadn’t realized how far I could fall or what I’d do to get free.

He has a secret.

I’ve never pretended to be good or deserving. I chase who I want, do what I want, act how I want.

I didn’t have time to lust after a woman I had no right to lust after. I told myself to shut up and stay hidden. But then she tried to run. I’d tasted what she could offer me and damned if I would let her go.

One secret destroys them.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️5 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Destroyed…what a perfect description of how I felt at a certain point. I ugly cried for at least an hour! I had to take some time to get back to normal before I wrote my review.

Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. My emotions were all over the place. I’ll admit I didn’t like Roan he made me mad on more than one occasion. But then something happened that made me start to root for him. I wanted him to get a HEA, I felt he deserved one.
Hazel irritated me at times but I understood where she was coming from & why she did some of the things she did. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil the book. I know this story will stay with me for a long time.

My only complaint is that I didn’t want it to end. Well done Pepper Winters Destroyed was FANTASTIC & it deserves way more than 5 stars!

#Review #Standalone #MMRomance #FriendsToLovers #Wotr21 —Forever Better Together by: AD Ellis

Can best friends find true love? What if your best friend is your adopted brother?

Griffin can’t fathom his life without Quincy, but he also can’t ignore the crazy sexual attraction buzzing between them.
When Quincy offers up a contract to determine if the sexual tension brewing between them is worth jeopardizing their nearly decade-long friendship, Griffin finds himself helpless to say no.
Will they lose everything they’ve found in each other, or will they seize the opportunity to turn their friendship into something even better?

Forever Better Together is a male/male opposites attract, friends-to-lovers story with delicious sexual tension, a sizzling hot striptease, and emotions guaranteed to punch you in the gut.

Goodreads

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

The best way i can think of to describe Forever Better Together is as a cute- no so much friends- to friends- to lovers romance.

Griffin is 10 when he comes to live with Quincy’s family. Things start off a bit rocky with the 10 year olds but they quickly become best friends. The 2 are inseparable. Well, until life has other plans. No matter what life throws at them the friends find their way back to each other. Now if they could only admit to each other how they feel, I’m sure it would make both of their lives a whole lot easier.

Griffin and Quincy quickly won over my heart. They are my new favorite characters by A.D. Ellis. I just loved everything about them and their journey! This book is one that I know will stay with me forever. The storyline was just as unique as the characters themselves.

About A.D. Ellis

A.D. Ellis is an Indiana girl, born and raised. She spends much of her time in central Indiana as an instructional coach/teacher in the inner city of Indianapolis, being a mom to two amazing school-aged children, and wondering how she and her husband of nearly two decades haven’t driven each other insane yet. A lot of her time is also devoted to phone call avoidance and her hatred of cooking.
She loves chocolate, wine, pizza, and naps along with reading and writing romance. These loves don’t leave much time for housework, much to the chagrin of her husband. Who would pick cleaning the house over a nap or a good book? She uses any extra time to increase her fluency in sarcasm.
A.D. uses she/her or they/them pronouns.

Release Date: September 15, 2020
Blurb
Quinn
One simple
text message can change everything. I found that out the hard way. One minute

next, I’m having conversations with a stranger. A gorgeous, rebel of a man who
makes my heart skip a beat and does a number on my panties.
The only
problem is we’re not looking for the same things in life. I want stability and
a family, while he always has his eye out for the next good time.
Royce
She may
literally be the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. Funny, it all started with
an accidental text message. About unwanted male member photos, actually, and
from that moment, I was hooked. She’s the perfect woman really, except for one
tiny little flaw. She’s looking for the one thing that makes me want to run for

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

Absolutely loved Quinn and Royce they had great chemistry and banter no matter if it was in person or between texts.  Royce the guy who loves to have fun and Quinn the school principal that cannot back down from a challenge. Gotta love the Double Dog Dares Royce lays down.

Quinn is so done with men, dating, and putting her heart out there.  She is ready for the house with the white picket fence.  Really how wrong can things go when texting your BFF about her last date sending her inappropriate text pic.  Well unless it isn’t really your BFF you just texted and a total stranger. Ok well maybe it doesn’t go that wrong maybe it turns out to be a whole lot of fun.

Royce is never going to settle down or give his heart away to anyone. He is all about having a good time. He is all for a little fun but bringing up commitment and he O-U-T out.  When he sees a bomb shell on her porch one night on his evening run, he is ready to have some fun. The question is when things get serious will he run for the hills as usual or will she be the one that makes his feet stay where they are.

The banter between these two is amazing.  I think I fell more and more for Royce through out the book. Don’t get me wrong there were times I wanted to shake some since into him but for the most part loved him.  I mean how can you not love a guy who takes a girl on the dates he takes her on. Seriously, plus his love of a shelter pup just hand my heart over.  I loved Quinn to see her put her heart out there knowing Royce doesn’t want the same things she does but still puts herself out there.

I was laughing with Quinn and Royce through out this one.  No matter how scared or unsure Quinn was if Royce throughout the “Double Dog Dare you” you can count on Quinn doing it.  I absolutely loved the zipline scene and the dog shelter scene. Lacey Black did a good job on this one I had so much fun reading Quinn and Royce.

#Review #Standalone #Wotr21 #AttendingAuthor Broken Scars by: JM Walker

Ruined. Tortured. Broken.

What could have been the perfect childhood, turned into a hell that the devil himself would shy away from. I was forced to deal with an evil that would make the darkest of souls cringe.

Lily Noel was scarred but beautiful. She was perfectly flawed and everything that I needed.

Attraction bordered on obsession.
Passion bordered on ecstasy.
Addiction bordered on insanity.

Nothing could get in the way of our love.
Nothing

*This book contains dark themes including sexual assault and past child abuse*

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

This book was freaking fantastic! I love a good romantic suspense and JM Walker did not disappoint with this one. Broken Scars touched all of my emotions. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at my kindle like they could actually hear me. Yep! It made me look crazy, but I don’t care. That makes it a real winner in my book.
Lily is a sweet woman whose life hasn’t always been perfect. She lives with her grandma, works at a retirement home, and spends the majority of her free time alone. And she is fine with that. Well, until she meets Lucas.
Lucas- gah Lucas! He earned a coveted spot on my Top Alphas of All Time list! He had it all; brains, brawn, a heart of gold. He had a very troubled past but he tries his best to not let that define him.
Broken Scars sucked me in from the very first page. It’s a fantastic romantic suspense with a super fine alpha and some oh so hot- blush worthy sexy moments. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to move on after finishing this one but I guess I will have to try.

#WOTR21 #Charity #Anthology – Momma Strong benefiting Julia Gerard our #WOTRMomma

#MommaStrong by [Tricia Andersen, Dakota Trace, Pepper North, Beverly Ovalle]

There are many people who are involved in promoting authors and supporting the romance book world. Few are as loved as Julia Gerard, or as she is better known, Momma. Momma is fighting for her life against lung cancer.

We share these stories with you to show our love for Julia. Each contains some form of “Momma”, either as the subject or the word. The proceeds for this anthology will go to Julia and her family to help with her expenses.

Tricia Andersen lives in Iowa with her husband and her three children. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Arts in English and from Kirkwood Community College with an Associate of Arts degree in Communications Media/Public Relations.
For the past five years, Tricia has been a member of Hard Drive Performance Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, an affiliate of Roufusport in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She has experience in kickboxing and currently trains in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Even though she has never competed in an MMA cage, she’s witnessed and been a part of a fighter’s journey from fight camp to their walk to the cage. She also has competed in jiu jitsu.

Dakota is a simple Midwest girl, who has found her passion in storytelling at a young age. Her father was always saying she was making up the craziest stories. Most remained unwritten though as writing wasn’t Dakota’s strong suit. That all changed in junior high when she took her first typing class. Problem solved for the dyslexic Dakota. There was no stopping her after that. She wrote her first novel her freshman year about a girl who could speak to animals on an old electric IBM typewriter and never looked back. Writing in several different genres, she is now a published author with multiple books under her belt. When Dakota isn’t writing, she’s a crazy mom of three teenagers, slightly neurotic pup and squirrely cat.

Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.

Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.

An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.

A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.

#WOTR21 #MMRomance #ReleaseDay #Review #FriendsToLovers —Let Love Win by: AD Ellis


Skyler Byrd lost three years with his family and got an abusive relationship as his consolation prize. When Skyler finally reaches his breaking point, he finds himself homeless and in desperate need of his brother’s help.

Donovan Badger is living his dream with his best friend, Charlie, by his side. When Charlie’s younger brother shows up after three years, Van is immediately drawn to Skyler in a way that goes well beyond their past friendship, and is definitely against Charlie’s wishes.

Will Skyler and Van allow themselves to be kept apart? Or will they embrace what they’ve found with each other and let love win?

*Let Love Win is a steamy, friends-to-lovers, M/M romance featuring best friend’s brother, a penchant for silk, and a threesome fantasy longing to be brought to life.*

Goodreads

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5 STARS⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I received a copy of Let Love Win from the author. This is my honest review.

Skylar has just escaped an abusive relationship. The man he was with was so mentally abusive, Skylar believes he is damaged goods and definitely not good enough to be loved by another. He hasn’t seen nor heard from his family in 3 years, but he needs someone, so he goes to his brother Charlie.

Van is Charlie’s best friend. They all grew up together and now he lives in a house with Charlie and they both work together. When Skylar shows up on their doorstep, soaking wet from the rainstorm, Van’s simple, single life, gets a little complicated. Van is definitely feeling something a bit more than one should feel about their best friends little brother.

Let Love Win was an oh-so-very-slow-burn. But when these 2 get past their obstacles, the smolder turns to F-I-R-E! Their biggest problem is, Charlie has warned them both to not get involved with each other. The question is- are they going to honor Charlies wishes and turn their backs on something that has the potential to be an extraordinary? Or follow their hearts and let love win?

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

I was so excited to get back to The Storm MC series.  Gunnar and Chelsea did not disappoint.  Reading about them and seeing all the other characters made my heart happy. There is nothing like a strong Alpha biker and an even stronger woman.

Gunnar and Chelsea come from wealthy families and grew up together. They have been friends since they were five. Only difference is Gunnar broke away from that lifestyle and Chelsea was pulled farther and farther into it.  Chelsea betrayed Gunnar over and over and finally ripped out his heart. Everything she did was for him even if he didn’t see or know it.  No matter how much they wanted to avoid each other there were things that would pull them together.  The sparks would fly and then the hurtful words would spew out.

This story was so intense that it sucked me in and I had a hard time setting it down.  There was so much going on it was a true emotional roller coaster. This is packed with passion, drama, and action that kept me wanting more and needing more.

USA Today Bestselling Author Nina Levine is an Aussie author who writes alphas with a side of dirty and sassy women who don’t hand their hearts over easily.

When she isn’t creating with words, she loves to create with paint and paper. Often though, she can be found curled up with a good book and some chocolate.

#WOTR21 #Tour #Audio #Giveaway #Excerpt – Two Ink Minimum (Permanent Hangover #1) 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!!
