Doc (Steel MC Montana Charter Book 10) by [Michel Prince, Wren  McCabe, Leanore Elliot]

In book ten of the Steel MC Montana Charter: Thanks to video chats, Rebecca ‘Doc’ Olson has been helping the Steels process their traumas and heal. When death threats are more than a bluster from an angry patient, it is Rebecca’s time to seek out the care and protection of the Steels.

Over six years ago, Wendell ‘Chief’ Washington got pulled off active duty only to be devastated with news that cut him to the core, scarring him with a loss he believed he’d never recover from. Retiring from the Navy has him returning to a world with no anchor and just in time to attend the wedding of a dear friend in Turnabout Creek. What he didn’t expect to find was a woman who awoke the man inside him that died years ago.

Each of them running…Him from his past and her, from an eminent threat.

As each day passes, Doc is unpacking her life while danger circles around her. If it weren’t for the nights spent with Chief, she would be consumed and lost in despair. While Chief is teetering between a life renewed and losing it all if he fails again, to protect the woman who restarted his heart.

ARC Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book from Booksprout to leave an honest review.

This series is an auto buy for me.  I may have gotten an ARC but I had my preorder already ready for release day.  If you are a fan of alpha men that melt for their women, this is a series for you!  But stay away from my man Baldy!  Got it!!!  Good.  Ok now let’s talk about this book.  I really didn’t know these characters as they were both side characters.  Doc has been around the MC fringes for a few book as she helps the Steels and their women with mental health.  Chief, however, is essentially a new character.  When we learn he knows Annie…I was like “Who is Annie????  Oh crap!!  Its CREAM!!!”  Yeah, I don’t know the real names but road names anymore!!  LOL

Ok so Doc is old buddies with Red.  They were like besties in medical school with huge amounts of resect for the other in their fields.  Red is who got Doc to help his MC with mental health needs.  When Doc is being stalked by an unknown killer, she runs to the MC for a wedding of one of her patients.

Chief …I kinda don’t want to ruin who he is because the story of how he knows Annie was pretty sweet.  But let’s just say he and Annie go WAY back. He comes to see his friend get married to some young punk plus meet her little man, Liam.  Annie and Chief catching up was hard at times given the history but also pretty special as he is embraced by Bounty.

Chief and Doc run into each other at the Roadside but don’t really get to talk until they are both at Maggie’s for breakfast the following morning.  The attraction on both sides is spectacular.  Chief is dealing with his past and Doc is worried about even having a future.

Chief deals with his past and once he realized Doc is someone he won’t let go of.  Doc’s stalker soon comes around putting Red and the guys on high alert.  Doc is so scared of losing Chief she is the one who pretty much claims him and names him.  (We all know once you been claimed you are no longer on the market.  LOL )

But I really enjoyed seeing Red a little more one on one.  We see him a lot in the books as he is the president but seeing him with Harlow…melts my heart.  Also seeing him with his friend to talk medical things over with since he can’t lean on my baby daddy, Baldy, for that was pretty good to see.  Learning more and more about him made my heart happy.

I absolutely LOVED this book and meeting some new prospects.  I also love what we learn about a few of the couples.  This family is growing more and more.

#WOTR21 #2ndChance #Taboo #MMA #AudioReview – Sin and Ink, Sweetest Taboo #1 by Naima Simone

Sin and Ink (Sweetest Taboo, #1)

There’s sin, and then there’s literally going-straight-to-hell sin…

Being in lust with my dead brother’s wife pretty much guarantees that one day I’ll be the devil’s bitch. But Eden Gordon works with me, so it’s getting harder and harder to stay away. I promised my family—and him—I would, though.

My days as an MMA champion are behind me. But whenever I see her, with those wicked curves and soft mouth created for dirty deeds, it’s a knock-down fight to just maintain my distance. “Hard Knox” becomes more than just the name of my tattoo shop. However, surrendering to the forbidden might be worth losing everything…

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book and paperback book.

I was sooooo excited when I saw the cover and read the book blurb.  I mean MMA fighter who is in love with his brothers widow….sounds good and naughty to me.

When we start the story, we learn about how Knox is the black sheep of his family annnnd he is in crazy lust with Eden.  She is sweet and innocent but totally off limits and yet he is DRAWN to her.  Book sounds great right?  It totally started out great and then….I started to get annoyed always hearing about how they CANT be together.  I mean I was on chapter 9 and had hear many times they CAN’T BE TOGETHER.  I was like I get it…so stop touching each other!!! LOL  I mean the touching was HAWT but yeah….

Knox and Eden have a confusing relationship and it seemed at times there was drama for drama sake BUT at the end of the book I was happy.  I did enjoy the end of the story and the resolution both characters take with regard to their heart and the other person.

I am curious about book 2 and Jude.

Published since 2009, USA Today Bestselling author Naima Simone loves writing sizzling romances with heart, a touch of humor and snark.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

This was the first audio narration I have heard from Lacy Laurel. She did a good job changing up the different voices from women to men. The females voices were a bit similar but through the conversation you could tell who was who.

This is a short novella I downloaded after finishing a super duper long…16 hour…..audio story. I needed just a quick in and out love story. This is a best friends to lovers story/2nd Chance Romance Story.

Beth and Bryce were besties in college who were both feeling the other but never crossed that line. When Bryce was leaving for Harvard there was some jealousy issues that got in the way of their possible “love connection” and they parted ways. Bryce was never really sure what happened to Beth and Beth was all in her feelings. Now I admit I have a few questions about the story. They are friends so her being angry that he was hooking up with someone was kinda a stretch for me. But Bryce tells the “hook up” two different ways so I was confused. First he says the girl asked for help and he went to her room. She came on to him and he declines…then he says they were making out and we went to have sex but sees Beth’s picture and declines said offer. So I think that would have been caught with beta readers and ARC readers to be better flushed out.
All in all the story was them finding each other again and admitting how they felt about each other in the past and figuring out what to do with the time they have now. I think this was a good story and enjoyable read. It could have been flushed out a bit more but I did enjoy listening when I was getting ready and driving to work.

CJ Warrant is a lover, a hater and sometimes a fighter for all she’s passionate about. She can’t exist without coffee, chocolate and a damn story brewing in her head. She was born an overseas Army brat, in a Korean Italian household but settled in the states at the ripe old age of five.
With a long career in the beauty industry, a wonderful marriage to a great man and three kids nearly all grown, her view of life is as such. Life is a journey; both good and bad, light and dark, but she takes it all in and learns from every experience life has to offer. She takes those crazy moments, stirs in the dark and brings her passion for words to life.

#Review #RecentlyReleased – Fallen Royal (Mafia Royals #4) by: Rachel Ban Dyken

A mafia romance about betrayal and faith by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.

“The truth may hurt for a little while, but a lie hurts forever.”—Ryan Bigge

I grew up knowing it would happen one day.
Believing that I would fall into my father’s footsteps and become a monster of my own making.

So I fought it.
I lived.
I loved.
I teased.
And then one day… I destroyed.
And realized I loved the pain.
Obsessed over the feeling.
So I cut again and again and again.

She saw my rage, my madness, and tried to stop me from destroying myself, and I hated her for it, pushing her away past the point of no return.
Izzy Abandonato was supposed to be mine.
But there are some things people can never come back from. I hurt her, she hurt me, and now I’m living a lie. Telling the ones I love that I’m on one side when for years I’ve been forced to play both.

I’m not the hero.
I’m the villain.
And I may single-handedly bring down the Cosa Nostra—by default.

I, Maksim Sinacore, will have my vengeance.
I will win her back.
Even if it means I have to kill everyone in my path.
The pain masks the betrayal.
I never realized that one day—I’d be the very rat that I hated. That I was sent to kill. But once you’re deep in a lie—you’ll do anything to hide the truth.

She fell for the bad one.
She fell for the sinner.
So why does that make me smile?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

I do love this Mafia family. Izzy Abandonato and Maksim Sinacore have been perfect from the star. Both were more interested in their studies than in the family business. This book was great so many ups and downs. I even had a few tears in there too.

Izzy is a strong, independent and sassy woman but would we expect any less from a woman in this family. She loves Maks with all her being but he continues to break her heart time after time when he pushes her away and runs to other women. Most would give up and protect their own heart but not Izzy. She may try but she just cannot give up on Maks.

Maksim holds my heart. I have never had a story take me on a ride like this. Everything Maks did was for Izzy and his family. Always afraid to turn into a monster and he felt Izzy deserved better that what he was. He would show her he loved her and she meant something then he would push her away and find someone else to hurt her.

The love these two have for one another is spectacular. What Maksim was dealing with was heartbreaking and I love him probably as much as Izzy does. Izzy shows over and over that she is the perfect person to be with Maksim no matter what her dad does or says. With these too the saying could not be truer never judge a book by its cover. Sometimes you have to open in and dig in to truly find their beauty.

I have only read Mafia King in this series although there are a lot of characters in this book, I was still able to follow. I may have been able to clue in on some of the underlying things if I read the others but I don’t feel I missed out on the big things. I am only 3 books behind so I am sure I will be able to get caught up. I did enjoy Maksim and Issy’s story and cannot wait to jump into the others and see what went on to bring us to this point and then on to Broken Crown in a few months.

#review #partofaseries After Us (TNG 6) by J.M. Walker

Jaron-

She was mine.

Her heart.

Her body.

All of her.

Piper Michaels and I had been through so much together in such a short amount of time. I wasn’t sure how we would get through it but we had to. It wasn’t just us we were looking out for anymore.

Being away from my family for more than a year, messed with my head. I had to do things to survive. To make it back to her. To both of them.

She used to be vibrant and filled with life but ever since I ended up in jail, the light no longer existed in Piper and it was instead covered by a darkness. But I vowed to help her find the light.

No matter the cost.

-Piper-

He was back.

In my life.

For good.

Forever.

Jaron Mercer rescued me. But after spending more than a year in jail, he came back a different person. No longer was he the man I had fallen in love with but a shell of himself instead. Now we would have to work even harder to be together.

Even though he was taken from me, he left me a gift in return. I was constantly reminded of his love. For me. For her.

While we tried reconnecting and finding us all over again, there was a plan behind the scenes to make him pay for what he’d done.

For good

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this book by the author and this is my honest opinion

Where do I even begin. Jaron went to jail after killing the mayors son for trying to rape Piper, and now he was finally getting out and to met his daughter and be reunited with his girl. Piper had all the feelings when it came time for Jaron to finally come home ad be with them again, she was happy to have him back in her arms, but scared that it wouldn’t last. Weeks went by and things were getting to be normal as they could be when Jaron was threaded by the scumbag of a mayor and threated Piper and Brynn. Well when threats are thrown at his girls Jaron and the club take actions into their own hands or will hey wait till something bad happens to get even. Do they have what it takes to keep their love strong when everything keeps pulling at them and shit really hits the fan. Omg i just loved their story although I’m not a fan of the moments that almost made me cry it was just the way the story had to go and J.M. Does a wonderful job to continue to pull you in and make you fall harder and harder for this family.

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 – #Review – #NewRelease – Amara Acquired by Michel Prince

Amara Acquired

In 2002 four planes disappeared over Western Wisconsin, thirteen years later one has requested landing privileges.

Jocelyn ‘Joss’ Randall is on a time crunch. A business trip to Detroit already had her plane bumped an hour and for some reason the plane is taxiing on the runway forever when they finally land in Minneapolis. Her seatmate is annoying her with fears of missing her connection and all Joss wants is to see her baby Molly and get to a birthday party for her niece. The last thing she expected was a week in Detroit would feel like a decade.

Carlton Randall is finally to the point of moving on with his life. His teenage daughter Molly is yearning for independence and his long distance girlfriend Carrie has been transferred to Minneapolis. Things are falling into place for his grief to end. The
loss of his wife, with no remains to claim left him questioning for years. Accepting the mysterious loss only to have the woman appear. Young, unchanged and with no understanding how her one-year-old is now fourteen.

Distance between Joss and Carlton isn’t a new thing, but when he refuses to touch her, looks a decade older and refers to her as an it, not a his wife, the divide is growing. Strange language, lost thoughts and dreams in the form of memories haunting Joss does not help the situation.

Is the man haunting her dreams truth or fiction? Has she learned a language never heard before by anyone on Earth? And if this dream world is real, is that where more than her heart lies?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I received this ARC from Booksprout in exchange for an honest review.

What a whirlwind! With Fate at its finest and glitches in the system, this is an insane story that is gripping with so many twists. You will remain completely engaged from beginning to end. One night Joss’ plane disappears without a trace along with 3 others. 13 years later she reappears completely unchanged, and the details of the other planes keep changing. She finds that she is haunted by a strange man from a strange place, and she keeps speaking crazy weird words in a language that no one knows. She feels like she is going crazy. Her husband, Carl, had finally come to terms with Joss being gone, he is raising a teenage daughter that reminds him everyday of Joss, and has a new love in his life that he truly feels at peace with. Now Joss and Carl are all over the place with their emotions. They both know that they were drifting apart before Joss left but what now? How do you move on from this? Move forward? Their story completely pulls at your heartstrings. They both truly found themselves when they were apart, and the hard part is what do they do now? What about their teenage daughter, Molly? There are a million questions, incredible emotions, a great cast of diverse characters, with crazy incredible settings. Oh, I didn’t mention the ending….one helluva ending! Wowza! I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

Nothing Bundt Love by [Samantha  Lind]

Nathan Bailey was the one that got away…or so I thought.

After leaving our hometown of Sweet Valley, Tennessee, for college,
He never looked back….
Until ten years later, when he walked into my bakery.

The now billionaire tech-mogul is back in town and has his eyes set on me.

He’s no longer the boy next door.
Tall, dark, and handsome, he’s all man now.

His sweet-talking is impossible to ignore; it’s almost as delicious as my bundt cakes.

Can I take a chance on my first crush and hope he won’t break my heart for a second time?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

So I have fallen in love with Samantha’s audio series for the hockey series she has out.  When I saw she was starting a new series and caught the name…sold!! I mean it sounded adorable and fat girl loves cake!!  LOL

One thing I do love about Samantha’s characters are how true to life they seem.  They have the flaws you and I have so I feel they are relatable.  Which makes it easier for me to be THAT girl in the story…and who didn’t wanna be THAT girl in this story because Nathan…HEEEY!!!!

Nathan is coming home to visit his grandma after being gone a substantial amount of time creating a business that is thriving.  When he comes home he sees HER…ya know the one girl….ya know….Harper.  He totally crushed on her and her him but nothing ever came of it.

Now that Nathan is back he is totally going after Harper.  The two need to talk and slowly trust but with all Samantha’s books she gets the characters where they need to be to move everything forward.

Samantha Lind is a contemporary romance author. Having spent the first 27 years of her life in Alaska, she now calls Iowa home where she lives with her husband and two sons. She enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, reading, watching hockey (Go Knights Go!), and listening to country music. You can connect with Samantha on her website, www.samanthalind.com.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the audio and ebook combo from Amazon.

First up let me start with the narration….LOVED them BOTH!!  They both did a great job bringing the characters to life and hitting the comedy at the right time.  Audio can ruin any good book, but I think this combo did a great job bringing the story even more alive for me a listener.

Look I am a sucker for a good 2nd chance story and this one did not disappoint.  Now there were times when I was like “Girl Imma smack you” or even “BOOOOOYYYYYY” but that is a given in any good book right???

This is the story of young love that was destroyed through miscommunication…yeah let’s call it that.  The two are so in love and at the same time do not communicate so it caused issues for them as teens and again at times as adults.

Cassie needs money, and even though I felt she was a bit naïve with why she needed the money, she was going to sell her childhood home.  Her grandparent’s home.  The one with all her good memories.  The house needs a lot of updating and so she is stuck seeing HIM….Robbie.  The one who broke her heart in to a million pieces.

Robbie never understood why things went they way they did.  His life is at a crossroads.  He either marries his current girlfriend, who he is talking time away from to sort through things (no cheatin’ here people)  or he walks away and starts over again someplace else once his things at home are sorted.

Having Cassie return makes Robbie and Cassie start to remember the love they have but seems others just can’t have it.  We start to see some drama from ex’s and parents and everything else get in the way for the couple.

I did enjoy the story and love when people can find their way back to their better half or the perfect fit to their soul. Cassie and Robbie definitely are that for the others.

Dylann Crush writes contemporary romance with sizzle and sass. A romantic at heart, she loves her heroines spunky and her heroes super sexy. When she’s not dreaming up steamy storylines, she can be found sipping a margarita and searching for the best Tex-Mex food in Minnesota.

Although she grew up in Texas, she currently lives in a suburb of Minneapolis/St. Paul with her unflappable husband, three energetic kids, a clumsy Great Dane, a rescue mutt and a very chill cat. She loves to connect with readers, other authors and fans of tequila.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Maddie wants nothing more then to live life to her plan everything was going to plan married by a certain age, 2 kids by this age well her life going great until she finds herself getting a divorce and still no kids. But she has a great job with the F.B.I and was a part of a research project that had her in prison and talking to 3 violent criminals. 1 didn’t want to talk, number 2 wouldn’t stop talking and number 3 was gorgeous and she couldn’t help but risk her job and catch feelings for him. Now her job is gone, she fines herself in a spot she never seen in her life plan, but he has to do what she has to do. With a new pen pal with inmate number 3 Jonah, Maddie finds herself with a new look on life and not sure how the hell she is going to make it with lol the curveballs thrown her way tipping her world upside down. This was such a good book you cant help but feel for Maddie and her just wanting to be happy and live life again, its a great read and I’m glad i grabbed it.

 

I was born in Bangor, Maine. I attended the University of Maine in Presque Isle where I graduated with a BA in English. I spend as much time as I can with my family, and love my two boys more than anything in this world. I also have three adorable furrbabes (2 dogs and 1 cat). I have some amazing friends (you know who you are) and I spend a lot of time conversing with people online through games and other platforms. I have met many from all over the world this way. I am so incredibly thankful for the people in my life, because I am constantly inspired by their presence. You can either find me behind my phone, laptop, or pc — writing, texting, gaming, or playing silly Facebook games like candy crush ( I will win some day!).

If I were to be characterized, I would want to be described as a quirky romantic. That is why you will find romance in all of my books, with some suspense and drama and a little mind sorcery to make everything just a bit more quirk-minded.

The last time I saw the man—jerk—of my dreams, he fired me. Now, he’s back in town to renovate my bed and breakfast before the tourist season starts.

I might have gotten over my grudge, but I sure haven’t moved on since him. Harrison is the ideal hunk, or he was back when we were young and stupid. My contractor is still sexy, possibly sweet, and easily keeps up with my sarcasm…but he’s a package deal this time. He’s back with a daughter and a chip of his shoulder, neither of which should matter to me. But the more I see him on the job, each time we clash and fall into our thrilling push-and-pull, I have to wonder if there’s something fresh to start with him before the summer kicks off.

Harrison
Of all people, it just had to be Jessie Green buying this old dump. Imagine my shock that the feisty, gorgeous, stubborn girl I fell in love with in high school is the owner of our town’s former brothel.

Her plans for a B&B are a nearly impossible race against time—doable, but it’s quite the hustle. With the tables turned—her hiring me—it’d be easier done if I didn’t have to see her day in and day out, worrying if she can overlook our past, wondering if she tastes as good as she looks, wishing I could have a take two. Hell, even a take one

Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book from the author.
STAHP!! This book was hilarious!!! If you can write a book about restoring an old brothel into a bed and breakfast while fighting rats and flavored lube…I am sold!!!
Seriously I totally loved this story about Jessie and Harrison. They made my heart happy. Enemies to Lovers/2nd Chance/single dad story is a definite win for me.
Jessie is still holding a grudge against Harrison for firing her 10 years ago from the ice cream story. LOL Girl is strong with the dislike!!! Jessie needs to get this brothel restored for “The Season” to make back all the money she has sunk into the building. This is all she has and she is close to losing it if she can’t get the house done!! *shakes fist* Damn you Wormer!!!!
Harrison is feeling terrible about uprooting his daughter Mel and moving home. Now he is working to and trying to get someone with a ridiculous grudge to forgive him. He starts with with his family and soon discovers he will be working for Jessie…the girl he mega crushed over and who now hates him. E just wished she knew WHY he did what he did.
The couple have amazing chemistry and the banter….stappppp it was great!! Throw in Harrison struggling to deal with his over the top nerdy daughter Mel throwing in crazy words I had to look up too and the comedy is great. The couple find themselves in crazy situations but once they get past everything and move toward building a better tomorrow is when it was truly awesome.
