#WOTR23 #Review #Audio – Stitched Up Heart: Combat Hearts Series, Book 1 – By: Tarina Deaton Narrator: Hayden Bishop

Stitched Up Heart (Combat Hearts Book 1) by [Tarina Deaton]

As an Air Force medic, Bree Marks saw the worst the War on Terror had to dish out. Now a physical therapist, she uses her experience to help other veterans heal from their physical wounds; while she battles her own emotional damage.

Blaming himself for his best friend’s suicide, former Army Ranger Jase Larken, retreated from life. To honor his best friend’s memory and assuage his guilt, he started an outdoor adventure company to help veterans with PTSD.

Bree had better things to do than catch her cheating fiance in bed with another woman. Jase is something better – for a night at least. For the first time in years, Jase wanted more. When he finds her again, he doesn’t give her another chance to run.

Jase’s protectiveness grates on Bree’s independent nature. She’s dealt with her fair share of alpha-male, door kickers and doesn’t need one telling her what to do now. But as a new danger emerges, Bree and Jase must face their pasts, before someone’s obsession with Bree destroys any chance they have of a future.

Can be read as a stand alone. No cliffhangers within the story.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I purchased this audio book.

When your BFF reads a book and tells you that you have to read it because she knows you will like it. You do not ask questions you pick it up and listen to it.  She was so right I did enjoy this one not only was it a good story but the narrator took it to another level.  Hayden did a great job.

Bree just had a crappy day. Found her fiancé in bed with another woman so she decided to hit the bars with her BFF. I loved Denise and seeing her and Bree’s friendship. Bree ran into Jase at the bar and decides to have a one-night fling. The next night she is out the door and never plans on seeing him again.  When Jase wakes up and she is gone ticked him off. He thought they had something. When the stars line up Bree is brought back to Jase and he is going to hang on to her and not let her run again.

These two are amazing together. They both have their demons they are trying to forget but they keep working their way back. They each understand what the other is going through and knows what the other needs. I loved that Bree was just as tough as Jase. She is no weak female that needs Jase but strong enough to stand up to him.

I enjoyed this story so much I have to say the narration set this one apart from other audio books. I am excited to read more of this series.

Tarina has spent her entire life in and around the military – first as a dependent and then as an enlisted Air Force member.

She writes contemporary and military romance about strong women and the men strong enough to love them. She draws heavily from her own military experience to create authentic characters who face real personal challenges.

Tarina is still active duty and a single mom of six-year-old twins. Her favorite hobby is sleep. She has delusions of retiring from the military and being a stay-at-home mom and full-time writer.

Imperfect Heart (Combat Hearts Book 4) by [Tarina Deaton, Jessica Snyder]

It’s not a mid-life crisis if you’re finally doing something you love, right?

Separating from the Air Force after thirteen years may seem drastic to some, but Zoe Acevedo is finally doing something for herself. Opening an independent bookstore in Haven Springs, North Carolina is a major undertaking, but Zoe has a plan and a list. What she doesn’t have is time for distractions like her interfering family, her cheating ex, or the sexy neighbor who always manages to find her in the most awkward situations.

As a Haven Springs police officer, Tim Larken has dedicated his life to protecting and serving. He learned the hard way that the damsel in distress doesn’t always want to be saved, but somehow he manages to help his curvy new neighbor out of one tight spot after another.

Their attraction is undeniable, but when true disaster strikes will that be enough for two Imperfect Hearts to heal together?

Imperfect Heart is the final book in the Combat Hearts series. It can be read as a stand-alone. Guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book and audio.

Again, I have to say the narration is A-MAZ-ING!!  I mean Hayden just blows me away with each book.  I absolutely love love love her ability to tell the story.

I am going to start by saying this series was absolute perfection.  I have called all the guys as mine to my blogging sister.  I can’t decide who I love most. I can’t decide which woman I want to be best friends with.  I can say that I most definitely will be relistening to this series time and time again.

Oh Tim.  What a character he has been.  The police officer who has a heart of gold.  He loves his brother and now Bree.  We have seen him through the entire series, so I was pumped to see him get his HEA.  He is just the fun-loving guy and I always wondered WHY??  Why hasn’t he been snatched up?  ANNND Then we learn his story.  Poor dude.  Again, he has the purest heart of all and he has his heart destroyed by love.

Zoe is something.  She is a firecracker for sure.  I fell in love with her the first scene where she is so stubborn and tried to climb (unsuccessfully) through a window.  She is starting her life over after a divorce and career change.

When Tim sees Zoe stuck in the window the chemistry was born.  They both are attracted to the other but he is afraid to try and she is not making space for anyone right now.  The more time they spend together the more their chemistry is undeniable.

I was so happy listening to the story of her overcoming and learning to trust/lean on people while we see Tim learning to love/trust again.

I have to say I am broken hearted this is the last book in the series because it was just such a great series and I will definitely be reading more from the author in the future.

Locked-Down Heart (Combat Hearts Book 2) by [Tarina Deaton, Jessica Snyder, Shauna Kruse]

Denise Reynolds’s tightly controlled life is thrown off kilter when she’s given custody of her young cousins. There are days she has a hard enough time getting herself out of bed, never mind two precocious kids.

If that wasn’t enough, Chris Nolton comes strolling back into town as suddenly as he left it. She’d broken her own rules and given him a chance once before, only to have him ghost on her. But he’s not there for her this time. No, he’s leading the FBI Task Force intent on capturing the kids’ biological father. A man who was sent to prison for manslaughter. A man who was released five years too early. A man who wants his kids back.

The past has a way of repeating itself and once again, Denise finds herself defending the innocent against the evil of world. One wrong decision, one second guess, could have devastating consequences. To protect the most important people in her life, she’ll need to trust the one man with the power to break her.

I purchased this book.

GUUUYS~This series!!!  I am in HEAVEN!!!  I will admit I am not a huge military reader, but these books got me in my feeeeeels!!!

Denise….We love her or I love her anyway. I mean she is the best.  Sorry but I have a huge girl crush and I want her to be my best friend.  I would say I would fight Bree, but I know what she can do with a rifle…so I will just share her!!!

Denise is selfless.  Denise is the most loyal person.  She is who you want in your corner.  But Denise is a MEEEESSSSS. Between getting her heart broken by Chris (accidently I admit) and the stuff with Sarah.  Girl is about to CRACK!!!  Well she does crack actually….and punches Chris ….LOL I did laugh pretty hard at that scene.

Chris is so mad when he finds out no one told Denise about his job.  He rushed home and finds out his new case is *Gulp* Denise’s cousin!!!  Yeah he is allll kinds of a mess but he knows he wont let her go again.

This book has A LOT going on.  Denise and Chris trying to get it together…mainly Denise because Chris is in it for the long haul except, he won’t do girls hair *Snicker*.  Denise figuring her life out now that she is a single mom of 2 kids.  She needs help but won’t ask for it at the shelter and just damn with her life!!!!

I am telling you.  I have book 3 ready to go.  Hayden’s narration is PERFECTION.  She gives the scenes the tension voice or comedic voice as written. I think her narration had made my enjoyment even better.  For real girl is amazing!!

I honestly am torn…do I love Jase or Chris more…its close but Jase may still be on the top…but its CLOSE!!!!

#WOTR23 #Audio #Series #2ndChance #Military – Half Broke Heart, Combat Hearts Book 1.5 by Tarina Deaton, Narration by Hayden Bishop

Half-Broke Heart (Combat Hearts #1.5) by [Tarina Deaton]

Denise Reynolds is used to putting up a good front to show the world a strong, capable woman, but keeps a lot of things buried deep.

Chris Nolton is everything she learned the hard way to avoid — a sexy alpha-male who could charm her out of her pants and work his way into her heart. If history has taught her anything, it’s a deadly combination, but he manages to dig up emotions and longing she’s tried to bury for years.

He says all the right things and pushes her boundaries in all the right ways. Letting her guard down is difficult, especially since believing all the right things in the past led to unimaginable consequences.

Being content with her life may no longer be an option, but risking her heart may bring her to her knees.

Author’s Note: Half-Broke Heart picks up in the middle of Stitched Up Heart (Combat Hearts, #1) and is not intended to be read as a standalone.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

I will say if you haven’t read book one you probably need too.  I think you can read this book without reading book one but Denise is hella funny and you don’t want to miss her comedy.     I mean I had a bit of a girl crush on her TBH so this book and book made my heart happy.

I want to start by saying Hayden’s narration is *Chef’s kiss* amazing.  She does an amazing job with telling the story.  She is easily becoming a favorite voice for me.

Ok so we see Denise and Chris in book 1 but had no clue what was going on between the two of them under Bree and Jase’s noses. Granted Bree was being stalked but still….

Denise and Chris are hella funny together.  They both had some issues, but Chris is ready for a woman too settle down with.  He didn’t realize it until he sees Jase with Bree and until a certain female is giving him the slip.  Karma play boy!!!

Denise is frightened outta her mind with these feelings she is having for Chris.  No one gets her and he does, everyone pushes her and he doesn’t.  No one gives her comfort like Bree and yet she is leaning into his touch. FREAK OUT CITY!!!

Right when we think they are going to have a HEA we quickly realize there is a reason for book 2….OOOF Chris you are in big trouble but hopefully Denise wont be toooooo mad??? Oh dude you’re screwed because yeah she is going to lose it on you.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.

First up, I am a narration snob.  I admit it.  I am picky and picky and even picky about my voices.  Ya’ll Hayden’s voice was THE BEST!!   Seriously she brought the characters to life.  She read the snide comments that were written with just the right attitude and sass.    For real….In love I am with her narration.

I grabbed this book because I had audio credits to burn.  I admit I was shallow when I saw the cover.  Don’t judge we have all stopped for a pretty cover.  Anywho, I then read the blub and was like hrmmmmm lets give it a whirl.

I am so dang glad I did.  I was laughing so hard at scenes because Denise and Bree are totally me and my bestie.  I was also fanning myself because ….. JASE….MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Its gonna take a lot for me to dump him as my book boyfriend……for this series at least.  #BookWhore

I loved that fact this book was military but not so over my head military I was lost.  I loved that the characters all understand what it is like to return home after service trying to find a new normal after all they saw and witnessed while in service.  I loved the teasing of which branch you served in.  I loved the comradery they all had.

Jase and Bree meet at a bar.  Bree had just tossed her fiancé and his side piece out when she decided to drink her sorrows away with her bestie.  After an amazing night with Mr. Walking Orgasm she slips out the door.  Jase is not happy because he finally felt a connection.  He is going crazy and then she just shows up in his life again.  Mr. Super Alpha grabs her and won’t let her go.  Literally he grabbed her and it was hysterical!

I thought the story of the two of them dealing with falling in love and falling so fast was freaking them out.  I loved they knew what the other was dealing with.  I loved that Bree kicks Jase’s ass but Jase also is there to hold Bree when she falls apart.

The mystery of the story is that someone is harming people for hurting Bree.  I thought I knew the who and when we find out the why, it made my heart sad.  Menta Health is a serious issue and I loved how respectfully this was dealt with throughout the book.

I am super pumped for Denise and Chris.  This is going to be a crazy ride!

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

*Sobbing and whaling* Now I am caught up I must wait like everyone else who is addicted to this series *sobbing and whining* I hate waiting!!!!

Ok so I got my tantrum outta the way lets get to talking about Mountain and Nightingale.  I LOVED THEM SO MUCH.  Ok so I am sure that’s not gonna sell ya on the series so lets talk more…..I am a mega nerd.  I am a sci-fi chick so the sci-fi references made me giggle a lot in this book.  Again might not be the best seller but I tried!!  LOL

Mountain is a man of mystery.  I mean Jesus he is hot as EFF but we don’t really know much about his history.  All we know is he WAS associated with a bad group of bikers, but he walked when he realized they were not the group for him.  Since joining the Steels he finally found a family and is not so patiently waiting to be patched in.  When a run for fun turns into a nightmare, Mountain proves his worth once again to the club.

Amber is a single, divorced mom trying to do her best for her kids when she sees a bad accident happen.  The trauma nurse in her jumps up to help.  She is thankful for the assistance Mountain gave her kids during the drama of the day.  However, the little spark between the two and her need to nurture gave him a reason to see her again.

The courtship of Amber by Mountain is so slow burn and also absolutely delicious.  He knows her limits due to being a mom but goes out of his way to show her he cares for her kids as much as he is growing to care for her.

Amber is what I would guess anyone who is unsure of this new MC life would feel.  She has questions and concerns but her love of this man…this MOUNTAIN is growing so much faster than she can stop.

A little misunderstanding plus a very scary traumatic scene makes Amber question the loyalty of her man to her and her family. Amber’s dickhole ex-husband causes more drama for her and her new relationship with Bjorn but she just cant stop because for the first time EVER she feels seen, heard, and respected.

I have to say IF Baldy did not own my heart…I might be #TeamMountain.  He is the big, mean looking, scary muscle of the MC but his heart is a squishy teddy bear…errrr wookie….. for the woman and kids, he has fall in love with.

I purchased this audiobook.

I was looking for a new something something to read and grabbed this book from a new to me author.  The blub got my attention annnnd it came on audio.  Double win!!

The story is about Patty.  She is a town local and always does the RIGHT thing.  But for once in her life, she decided to not be the “Good Girl” but a “Naughty Girl” and have a fling with the town Playboy, Reese.  Of course, Patty falls hard for Mr. Tall Dark and BADGED!!!

Reese has a lot of skeletons in his closet.  IT’S so full he sure as hell can’t close it with out ramming up to the door and jamming it shut.  He meets Patty and is all in for a few one-night stands when all of a sudden, he realized he kinnnnnda likes her.  SO of course, he must run for the hills.  When Mr Reese puts in for a transfer he gets a call of a man with a gun in Patty’s office!!  911 To the rescue!!!

Patty is not having a great day.  The guy she is falling for breaks it off, she is pregnant with said mans baby annnnd now a dude has a gun ….in her face…..This is definitely going to be  baaaad day.

Reese and Patty survive the office drama and have to “Talk”.  Patty and Reese both need to open up but both are scared outta their minds.   Patty because she knows he isn’t the settle down kind and Reese is being ruled by his past.   When Reese makes some decisions to help his soon to be child and hopefully the woman he will spend his life with, more drama ensues.  *GASP* Who is trying to kill him, Patty, and of course ruin his new life plans.

I enjoyed the story but a few times I wanted to shake both Patty and Reese because ….STUBBORN….

I did like the twist at the end of who the bad guy was.  I didn’t see all whole twist ending coming but the parts I didn’t see had me going “Oh snap!”

The narration was done well and I enjoyed Kate’s voice for all of the characters in the story.

#WOTR23 #MC #SeriesStarter – Challenged, Vipers Creed MC book 1 by Ryan Michele, narration by Mason Lloyd and Kendall Taylor

Challenged (Vipers Creed MC#1) by [Ryan Michele]

Lust, love, and second chances.

Growing up in the fast-paced and rough life of a motorcycle club wasn’t easy. Cleaning up the mess his father had made of Vipers Creed meant sacrifice. Cade ‘Spook’ Baker had given up everything to bring the club life back to what it was supposed to be: a family.

The choices he made were not what he wanted, but they were necessary for the club as a whole.
Second chances rarely came to Spook, so when his Trixie walked boldly into his clubhouse, the decision was made. Trixie would once again be his, this time for good.

Trix Lamasters was raised by a master—a master con. All grown up, she made her life solid by making it about her club, Sirens. But one bad business decision brought her to her knees, forcing her to call on the one person she had sworn she would never trust again.

Pasts have a way of not staying there. Things that were buried deep have a way of finding themselves in the light of a new day. Could something that had once crashed and burned for Spook and Trixie find a way out of the wreckage? With the odds against them, can they find a way to overcome the challenges, or will it all blow up in their faces?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I purchased the audio.

So a friend told me that I NEEDED to read this author. When this book came around, I jumped. I knew her other MC series was popular and I trusted my friends judgement so I grabbed it. OMG I am super excited that I did.

I love 2nd chance stories especially when they have hot alpha males and sassy stubborn heroines. Who doesn’t love a CHALLENGE too right?? Well this book is so full of it that you will be left sitting in one entire afternoon unable to put the book down.

Cade/Spook loved Trix/Trixie in high school. He knew that she was the one for him but his “family obligations” needed him so he had to cut her loose. When she struts into his life 15 years later looking for an employee, he will not let her go……..

I honestly don’t know which of the two I liked more. I mean they both were perfect. Her sass and his caveman thumping put me in heaven. I loved the side cast of characters but wow the twists and turns we got about Cade and Trixie’s fathers……I mean…yikes bad family drama.

I have got to say I am super excited to read about Boner and Stiff. I don’t know which of these brothers I want more? I mean they both had me cracking up so I am curious about what kind of woman kicks their alpha butts in gear.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

I was looking for a way to spend my audio credits and knew this author was attending my event next summer, so I jumped at the book.  I mean MMA guys are hawt!!  So I kind of went in blind as to what the story was about, LOL I live dangerous I know.

The story started out wit typical fights ribbing each other about the hot as hell lady in the gym.  When said hot as hell lady grabs Rafe and kisses him senseless, he is addicted!!  He then noticed the guy watching his hottie and him.

Katy grabs the hot fighter outside the gym to keep her creepy co-worker at bay.  She hopes if e sees her with someone, especially this guy, he will realize she isn’t interested.

Rafe and Katy’s kiss was combustible.  The two meet up for coffee and soon coffee becomes dinner.   Rafe isn’t too sure about this “harmless” co-worker especially when someone seems to want to harm Katy.  Rafe’s secret dominant side id BEGGING to come out but he needs to make sure she is ok with his expectations.

I enjoyed the mystery of the stalker and the love story developing between Katy and Rafe.  I think they were a fun couple and look forward to more from the club to discover.

#WOTR23 #reread #Audio – Black Swan Affair by KL Kreig

 Black Swan Affair

I’ve loved him as long as I can remember.

The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop.

Killian Shepard.

Shep.

We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life.

He’d be back.
He was always meant to be mine.

He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me.

So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do.

I got my revenge.
I married his brother, Kael.
Now we’re one big happy f*cking family.

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

*Big breath in and out. Wipes my teary eyes and looks at my lappy trying to figure out how in the heck I am going to write a review for this book of amazingness without just blabbing and telling you the whole sorted story.*

Maverick…she has loved and I mean whole heart loved Killian her entire life.  She has grown up knowing he will be her forever.  Promises made and kisses stolen but yet he comes home to destroy her by marrying her sister.

Kael is Killian’s younger brother who has loved Mav his entire life.  He has been by her side for everything.  He has helped her when she fell and celebrated with her for every victory. He has also loved her for as long as he can remember.  When he married her he really and truly married the woman of his dreams.  Too bad she didn’t return that love.

Killian was doing the right thing by Mav.  He was waiting for her to grow up but he was plotting to have a forever with her but then everything changed in the blink of an eye.

The story killed me.  The very first chapter you can see a whole lotta emotion…… We can feel Mav and Killian’s chemistry but at the same time I am rooting for Kael.  We can see how much he loves and had loved Mav.  He was there to heal her heart after Killian betrayed her.  He was slowly becoming her everything and my heart was so happy for our couple….and then…BOOM…the closet flies open. Everything changed in the blink of an eye.  The book made me a mess. Who do I want Mav with?  Kael or Killian?  Her present or her past?  Her best friend or her forever love???  Is she destined to be a Swan or a Small Fry???  I loved and hated each man at different times in the book for different reasons but then when we find out why they did things………..omg my heart would just bust wide open for them.

I am a huge fan on KL’s writings and she is an auto buy for me because her writing is flawless and has so much emotional depth in it.  If you haven’t read her stuff, you are missing out and need to one click the rest of her library.  If you already are a fan this book will make your heart skip a few beats like every other book you have read.

I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out, I’m a raving bitch. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
