#wotr #attendingauthor #YA #seriesstarter Protect Me Not (Tangled Web 1) by Danielle Keil

At Fairview-Teller High, light mixes with dark. Good with evil. And heroes with villains. But there’s a reason students call it Fairy Tale High. They’ll get their happily ever after– even if they have to fight for it.

Popular girl Jessa is caught off guard when the school bad boy—the guy she hates—moves into her house temporarily.
Not knowing how her friends, or the rest of the school, will react, she keeps her new housemate a secret.
Though Jessa loathes Adam for humiliating her at school last year, the more they’re around each other, the more her hatred starts to wane.
And when Adam kisses her?
She doesn’t hate it—or him.
But it does ruin everything.

Tropes:
** enemies to lovers
** forced proximity
** modern day fairy tale retelling

Review by Twinsie Dee

i bought this book here is my honest review

Welcome to Fairy Tale High well not really but that’s what everyone calls it. You have the queens, wolves, kings and of course a beast, everyone has their roles a d they know how to stay in their own lanes. Jessa got stuck with Adam for a present or fail project and when he didn’t show up to class, she failed and weeks later she still hasn’t let it go, it’s the only time she’s failed at something, and it wasn’t even her fault. Jessa’s dad wanted her with Jay who is from a powerful family and wanted them to rule the kingdom together, but Jessa isn’t having any of that. Jessa wants her own happily ever after even if it’s with someone her dad probably won’t approve of. this queen is her own hero and maybe with the right guy by her side she can truly do good. this was such a cute great story with a plot twist you might not see coming. who will truly rule the kingdom and how will it all play out.

#review #partofatrilogy #whychoose Honed in Havoc (Corrupt Credence 3) by Albany Walker

They want an heir and I’m the only way they can get it. With or without my cooperation.

I thought Cadieux Island would be a new beginning, but the privileged estates and elite college turned into a nightmare.
My once tormentor and his twin brother somehow became my unlikely saviors while the grandparents, I didn’t know existed, lured me here with the promise of family have shown themselves to be the true tyrants.

The Umbra’s want an heir and I’m the only way they can get it, but I’m not the same girl I was when I stepped onto this island. The Morningstar twins have honed me, sharpened me into something my family will never see coming.

Honed in Havoc is the final book in the Corrupt Credence series. A dark college romance with mature content for adult readers.

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

With the Umbra’s having kidnapped Nova, Lucian and Nox are on a mission to get her back and never let her out of their sights again. When 7 students die tragically Nova is allowed to leave the house with her captures, I mean grandparents to attend the memorial. Her heart breaks when Lucian and Nox barely look at her, but little does she know that’s all a part of their plan. 1 gps tracker placed and unknown Lucian is ready to get his lam back at all costs and who knows how much blood will be shed. OMFG this book WOW, swoon, makes you all hot and bothered, and have all the feels the Morningstar twins are so perfectly written Nova is definitely one lucky lady.

Albany lives in Michigan where she’s happily married to her high school sweetheart. She spends most of her time juggling her four children’s extracurricular activities, with her nose stuck in a book. When not reading you can find her writing her very own book boyfriends. Albany’s passion is writing romance with real characters that are far from perfect, but always seem to find their own happily ever afters.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I saw this book was offered by the author in a reader event group I was attending.  I love a good hockey romance and jumped to read it.  I fully admit I don’t know much about the game but enjoy them the most with sports romance books.

I thought the story and flow was an easy read.  I sat and was halfway through the book one afternoon.  It was a nice feel-good story even with the heavy topic of stalking.  I would not qualify this book as dark since the stalker storyline was pretty small.

Sasha is the new girl with the company.  She is very capable and independent.    However, she would love to find a “love of the lifetime” love.  She is a very confident woman, and I enjoyed her fire and sass.  She really didn’t take anything but also treated everyone like they were the most important person in the room.

Connor is all hockey all day long. His life is hockey, and he has zero time for romance or romantic entanglement. However, he seems to be attracted to Sasha but then sticks his foot in his mouth every single time he is around her.

I enjoyed the story but found there was a lot of push and pull in the beginning of the story which started to feel like filler….drama for drama sake.  I did enjoy it when the two stopped pushing and finally admitted feelings.

The stalker plot was pretty minimal and then slowly increased as the plot thickened.  When it was revealed, I thought the scene was well played out and enjoyed the resolution.  It was a great twist of who he was.

I was invested in the cast of characters in the series. I am interested in reading Cash and Evie.  They seem like oil and water so this will be a great read.

Mary Warren lives in Illinois with her family. When she’s not writing stories of fat women, she’s reading them and advocating for better fat representation. Mary founded Fat Girls in Fiction, pointing out positive fat representation for femmes and non-binary people in books. This project became a community and is something she is immensely proud of and happy to be working on.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Oh boy.  Greyson Roy you are one naughty and swoon worthy man.  Look I am coming out of the gates with my favorite lines….”You are everything” followed by “Sit on my face NOW Rosie!!”  Yes girls the same man who made me swoon also made my knees a little bit weak.

I gotta say Easton is still my main man but damn did Grey give him a run for his money.

This book is EVERYTHING you want with a Best Friend’s sibling and a little bit enemy to lover.  The chemistry and sexual tension between Tilly/Rosie and Grey are OFF THE CHARTS!!  Holy Moly.  These two are meant to be together and yes there are legit reasons why Grey does the shady when he leaves 7 years ago…but he makes it up to her in so many ways as we discover through the novel. Every single time we learned of the ways Greyson “took care of Rosie” made my heartbeat faster.  For real this book….swooooooooon. Tilly, as any heartbroken woman does…hides behind another man. LOL  The story of her and Blaine is a wild ride.

The twists and turns of this story are great. I really had no clue who the bad guy was and was shocked when it all played out at the end.  The end of the story gives us a glimpse into the next books and LAWD is it going to be good!!  Whit is in trouble in a lot of ways.

I do want to say this is the 6th book I have read by this author.  I love how her writing style is developing and her writing is just getting so much better.  The first books were GREAT. I loved them but I feel like she is more confident.  Her story telling had improved with each book.  Her flow is much better.  She is blowing me away with each additional story she is writing.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

I have wanted Tilly’s story since meeting her. She is a strong-willed independent woman even though she is deaf it does not and will not define her. She has the confidents that she is going to what she wants no matter what. However, she holds her heart close never wanting to give it away like she did with Grayson only to have it crushed again. She will not be that 17 year old girl again.

Tilly had a crush on her older brothers best friend Grayson when she was in high school only problem was he was older and headed to college. After her mother died Grayson was the only one who was able to reach her to pull her out of the darkness she was in. Grayson knew they were in two different points in their lives and put space between them.

Seven years later Grayson finds out his Rosie is going to marry another man. Let’s just say Grayson has something to say about that and is on the first plane home. It was amazing seeing these two journeys from the past up to the present. Only question is can Grayson he win his Rosie back or has he lost her forever?

I loved Tilly from the moment I meet her she is such an amazing character.  Oh boy did Greyson catch my eye. These two have serious chemistry even if they tried to hold back. I loved Tilly and Greyson story the twists in this story were ones I didn’t see coming. This book had me turning pages like they were hotcakes. I needed to know what was going to happen and how this was going to end. Then when I was at the end I wanted more. I loved how this book sets up the next book and oh man am I so excited to see what is in store for Whit. I just know it will be every bit as good as the other books in this series.

S.J. Chaynie is a small-town Texas girl who has found a love for writing. She enjoys writing romance, with a sprinkle of suspense, and a little humor. If she is not busy writing her newest ideas, she is spending time with her husband and two beautiful daughters. She believes a good book and a lot of laughs is the best medicine. She brings suspense, love, angst, and sometimes the occasional heartbreak to her stories. Always a HEA, but every character and story she holds close to her heart and hopes they touch yours as well.

Beastly Tales Trilogy by MJ Haag

From Book 1: ** Adult Romance **
Benella is concerned with two things–avoiding the two village boys who torment her and scrounging for food to help feed her family. Unfortunately, the best wild fruit and vegetables are near the walls of the estate, a dark misty place inhabited by an unforgiving beast.

When her tormentors lock her behind the massive gates, Benella knows her fate is sealed. Yet, the fate isn’t one she expects. Her encounter with the beast starts a bizarre cycle of bargaining for her freedom, a freedom the beast seems determined to see her lose.

A classic fairy tale with a seductively dark new twist, the Beauty and the Beast saga begins with Depravity.

Intended for mature readers due to sexual situations and moderate language. This book is part 1 of 3.

Beekeeping Age by Sophie Stern

He’s older. Wiser. Hotter.
More mature.
And he’s my best friend’s dad.

Remington West is the kind of guy who can get me into a lot of trouble. He’s twenty years older than me, for one thing. He’s Anna’s dad, for another.
Still, there’s an electric energy between us that I just can’t push away.
My body doesn’t seem to care that he’s all wrong for me.
It only seems to care that he’s of beekeeping age, and I…
Well, I’m ready to be kept.

Beekeeping Age is a standalone age-gap contemporary romance.

Confessions of Timber Creek by SJ Chaynie

Elle Andrews is my best friend. The one I let slip away, and now, she’s my four year old daughter’s new nanny. I may have had ulterior motives when I convinced her to take the job, but she needed work, and I needed a replacement. The plan was easy. Get her into my space, and prove to her that despite the past, I’ve always been hers. But when disturbing news about her parents surfaces, and four years of buried tension comes out, the plan takes an unexpected turn. There are three sides to every story. Yours. Theirs. And the truth.Book 2 of the Timber Creek Series. Series will contain interconnected standalones.

Perfect Risk by CA Harms

Perfect Risk (Book #1 in a 12 Book Series)

Mason Creek, Montana is my home. It always has been and truth is, there is no place like it.

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

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

But there is one problem.

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

It may get a little messy, I may regret my decision to stay…
But then again, this might just be the Perfect Risk.

Worth the Fall by Bria Quinlan

Who could possibly lose her job, apartment, and boyfriend in one day?

This girl.

I won’t lie. When my boyfriend took me out for a fancy-shmancy dinner, I was thinking jewelry not “please return your security deposit” the weekend I was moving in. Which, can we just talk about the fact I was going to move in with a long-term boyfriend who wanted a security deposit?

Instead, I got a lecture about not being able to pull my weight and a breakup. In public.

I’m over it. I’m over the good-paying job that kept me trapped in the wrong spot, the fear of moving on…and men. New rule: World Domination Without Men.

Period.

There’s only one thing slowing me down. That cop.

Yeah. Okay, so I may have accidentally broken some laws this weekend. Nothing big. But that hot cop has shown up everywhere. Now he’s living across the street from my new place and doing super hot cop things like cooking and salsa dancing.

I can’t help but wonder: Can I do the Single Girl Takes on the World thing and let Mr. Hottie Officer in or do I need to put him in the slammer of my big picture plan?

Now I just need to decide: Take over the world solo or risk another heartbreak with Officer Hottie?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

EASTON!!!  GAH!! I don’t know how many times I was messaging the author is regards to my boyfriend.  I am not a person who highlights stuff but there were so many amazing lines from him to Elle…..I melted so many times.  Like I love him so freaking much!!

Ok so you get that I loved the book right???  Now this is the 2nd book in the series but trust me what I say you don’t need to read book 1 to get this book.  I will say you totally need to read it because we see the Easton/Elle dance and well it made me totally love him before I read this book.

Easton is one of the town police officers who has loved Elle his entire life.  He can’t imagine not having her around and right when he gets the nerve to tell her…he makes an epic mistake and ruins it all. Elle has had a crap life.  She finally gets things in order and opens up to Easton and then…..GROWL

I loved Easton and Elle.  The dance they do the whole book is amazing.  They both want the other, but Elle is being stubborn annnd yes she has the right to be but…gesh Elle!!!  Easton knows he messed up and will do anything to get his girl to admit she wants to be with him too.

The banter and chemistry is so good. His zingers to get her attention made me laugh so many times. But guys…..omg the charity auction…..lets just say I saw Easton in a whole new light!!  MMMMMMM  Yes I liked it too.

This book has me glued to it and I was not happy when I had to put it down. I read it so fast I feel like I need to reread it to enjoy it all over again!!!

Review by: Twinsie Melinda

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

First off this is a new to me author and I can absolutely tell you I will be reading more of her books.  I could not put this one down.  It had me turning the pages like crazy I did not want to set this one down.  There was so many twist that I didn’t see coming.

Elle and Easton were childhood friends but as they grew Elle felt something more for Easton. When things were headed towards something more than just friends the rug was pulled out from beneath Elle. Just like any other time in her life when things were going well something happened that turned her world upside down. Four years later and Easton was determined to make Elle his. When the stars started to line up for him, he jumped at the chance to try to make her his.

I loved Elle and Easton the chemistry between them was thick. To watch them was like spinning magnets on a table repelling when they don’t line up but when they connect OH BOY do these two connect.  Let me just say charity auction. I enjoyed the side characters also and I like getting to know them a bit.  I need to go back and read the first book and I am on pins and needles waiting for the next book.

#WOTR23 #NewRelease#Duet – With Every Breath by H.D’Agostino

When we’re children, we never believe bad stuff can happen to us. I’m here to say that it does, that it did to me, but I came out on top. I won when everyone said I couldn’t.

I’ve learned over the years to live my life one day at a time. You never know what tomorrow will bring, how it can change you, or if it might be your last.

Take the chances you’ve been afraid to take.

Do the things you’ve always wanted to do.

And live life with no regrets.

I found love when I thought I wouldn’t. I’ve found faith when I thought I couldn’t, and now I’m fighting a battle I’m not sure I can win.

Review by Twinsie Angie

With Every Breath by H.D’Agostino

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

This story…It packs a punch, and the hit comes when you are least expecting it.

Bailey has grown up long before her actual age.  She has dealt with many things that many kids her age don’t have to deal with.  This trauma she endured made her cut off from others.  She is so afraid of getting hurt and hurting others she comes across “cold” or even “aloof”.  She has her bestie and that is al that matters…until Dex.

Dex sees Bailey he is going to do all he can to get her to notice him.  He pushes her and confronts her on her crap.  He also gets her to dare and dream of a future.  I mean Bailey does a full 360 with her personality.  When the shoe drops and the story ends, we are left a mess.  We are left hoping and hurting.  We are left destroyed.

I gotta admit I am so hoping I know what happens in the 2nd part of this duet.  I need to know my people will be ok.

#WOTR23 #EnemiesToLovers #InstaLove #SmallTown #KU – The Sweetest Thing, Starlight Harbor Book 1 by Bria Quinlan

Starlight Harbor’s Sweetheart has had enough…

Lyra Grigor is the easy going, sweet, smile-at-everyone owner of The Sweetest Things.  When an annoying travel site puts Starlight Harbor on their Top Ten Tacky Tiny Towns list for the fourth year running, she knows it’s time to give the writer a bit of spicy tart instead of a teaspoon of sugar.

An outsider who just wants out…

Spence Côte has no idea what hit his site. Nearly a thousand replies on some little baker’s comment and everything has blown up. Since the site is up for sale, it couldn’t have happened at a worse time. Now he has to drive up to the middle of nowhere coast of Maine and get this resolved. ASAP.

Two worlds collide…

Between the puppies dressed as pirates, the older women masquerading as tavern wenches, and the sweetest little baker he’s ever seen, Spence knows Starlight Harbor might not just be freakishly adorable….it might be what he’d been looking for.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I am not sure where to begin with this book except to say it landed in my lap during a much needed time.  I needed some light.  I needed some sweet.  I needed a delicious buttercream frosting cupcake that only Lyra and Spencer could provide.

This book is ab-so-lute adorable fun.  It is insta-hateish love???  Is this a thing?  I dunno but Bria did it and I loved it.   This book has banter…lawd the banter between Lyra, the harmed town baker and Spencer, the journalist and or Mob Boss???  I loved the town history and why they do the Christmas celebrations year-round.  I loved how the town rallied behind Lyra when she was throwing Spencer out of town…Angie and her dog did make me smile A LOT.

I was reading this book and laughing so much.  The townspeople are nuts but in the best dang possible way.  Lyra and Spencer and both head over heels about the other but pride keeps them at bay from admitting feelings pluuuuuus they aren’t really sure if feelings are reciprocated.

I had the best couple of hours reading and admit I might grab the next book in the series just because I wanna see how Cam is going to win Vi.  She is a disgruntled female who is going to be wooed in a biiiiiiiiig way.

But honestly this book was just a fun read.  It’s a good book when you just need some happiness or feel good in your life.  Don’t we all need and want some happiness and feel good!!??
