#NewRelease #HolidayNovella #Novella #MC- Christmas with Duchess, Book 6 of The Dollhouse by Mary Martel

It’s been years since we’ve visited with Duchess with her girls at the Dollhouse. Not to mention, the biker boys in the Mercy Motorcycle Club.

What’s a better time to go back and check on them than during the holidays?

What do people like Duchess actually even do for Christmas? Do they wrap presents with pretty bows on them to hand out to their stable of girls or the bikers next door?

Are all the girls even still there?

Is Franky still married?

Is Willow still a cold bombshell with a shoe addiction?

Are Duchess’s knives still sharp?

Guess you’ll just have to read about it to find out.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this novella.

Duchess and Cap.  I have missed them so freaking much.  When Mary said she was pubbing a novella to check in with our favorite MC President and his Queen, I said holiday prep be damned.  I need to see what’s up.

This is a super short novella letting us see everything with every one is amazing.  We check in with all the couples.  We get a shock and a giant surprise in the book.

I cant really say much except I need to reread after this novella.  I have missed them so much and didn’t realize it until just now.

#WOTR23 #Novella – The Last Single Girl, The Brew Ha Ha Book 1 by Bria Quinlan, narration by Brittany Goodwin

Get a date for the big gala in four weeks when I thought I could go solo? Challenge, accepted.

Now to find a hot, interesting guy who will dress up for a gala. Last minute. Who doesn’t already have plans on the busiest date night of the year.

But, so far the best part of the search for a great date has been the cute café I found and the geeky-hot owner who keeps rescuing me from these crazy eLove.com dates.

This should be easy-peasy. The internet is the home of all your hopes and needs, right?

Spoiler Alert: it isn’t.

Between the bromance date and the crazed single dad who needs to hire a nanny and housekeeper, not get a date, I’m running out of options.

If only a certain cutey didn’t have a phone call with “sweetheart” every day.

The weirder things get, the more I think just going solo is very I Am Woman, blah blah blah. Forget about the fact that my heart keeps bringing me back to a certain café even when I don’t need to be there…I mean, my heart doesn’t always get what it wants, does it?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

I have read a few really heavy and dark books lately.  I needed something fun and light hearted.  I needed something sweet and fun.  I also needed something to spend my audio credit on….hence this book.

Guys, this book was everything I needed.  It most definitely took me out of the dark stuff I have been reading into a fun and adorable happy story.

Sarah is in need of a date.  Sarah is pushed into online dating due to a “friend” who makes she feel less then because she doesn’t have a boyfriend.  The dates are an absolutely horror show to say in the least.  She is meeting her dates at a coffee shop when she befriends the shop owner.  Slowly they build a friendship when Sarah realizes, Holy crap I love John!

The story was adorable and sweet and I will be grabbing the 2nd one asap. The story was just sweet and funny and everything you need at times.

Bria Quinlan is an award-nominated bestselling author of eight Romantic Comedies and YA Issue Books (that she swears are funny…really. They are.) Her books make you snort Diet Coke out your nose or tear up and curse her name.

Somebunny to Love (Love and Holidays) by [Britni Hill]

Madison Torres is only in Blossom Row to watch her niece for a few days. And to clear her head.

Too bad she keeps running into the same too good-looking grumpy guy around town.

She should fight the attraction because she’s only in town for a little while.

There’s no reason to fight it.

After all, everyone is looking for Somebunny to Love.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the ebook.

I am a huge fan of holiday, syrupy novellas with inst-love.  When Britni publishes one, I grab it.  This book was the perfect little Easter Egg for me to read while sitting around on a Friday night.

This is a sweet story about Madison or Aunt Grace (though we don’t know why she is called that but I guess we all can figure it out) who is helping her sister out for a few days.  Family is family and Madison runs to hang with Sophie for a few days.

During one of the outings Madison meets up with a grump dad and his adorable son.  They two chat and run into each other the next day.  When Grumpy Dad finally starts to talk, the two start to feel some tension.  Slowly the kids are making plans and the adults are not really sad to be spending time together.

The story is sweet, sexy, and full of fun.  I absolutely love the story of Dane and Madison.  The epilogue made my heart so happy seeing them 1 year later.  I would love a story about his buddies at the bar!!!

Britni Hill is an author with books ranging from new adult to contemporary romance. She spends her days as a hair stylist, and her nights with the characters in her head striving to write real, page turning romance.

Talk about making you reconsider your life choices.
These four are aiming for Santa’s naughty list, and I’m pretty sure I’m getting:

Jace

#WOTR23 #Novella #Vampire #Paranormal – The Vampire Who Saved Christmas by Sophie Stern

The Vampire Who Saved Christmas

One human. One vampire. One collection of missing blood.

Juniper James is working at the Rose Valley Blood Bank when something goes terribly wrong: a collection of blood is stolen, which means an upcoming surgery they’re supposed to supply blood for isn’t going to be able to happen. Suspicion is instantly cast upon Edward Sparrow – the tall, lanky man who runs the blood bank.

Juniper knows that Edward couldn’t have possibly stolen all of that blood, and she also knows that he’s a vampire.

Now Juniper and Edward have to team up to solve the mystery and save the day before Christmas is ruined for one little boy.

Will they be able to save Christmas?

The Vampire Who Saved Christmas takes place in the same world as ROSE VALLEY VAMPIRES by Sophie Stern. This is a spicy quick read featuring a snarky vampire and the human who falls for him. Standalone. Guaranteed HEA. For more vampires by Sophie Stern, check out Megan Slays Vampires or Sweet Nightmares: The Vampire’s Melody.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book for an honest review.

OK Look.  I love Sophie.  Period.  End of Story.  I absolutely adore all of her books from her novellas to her long novels.  I also love her other pen name for the same reasons…her books are full of hope, promise, and love.  Her books vibe is much like her personal vibe.  Meet her and you will love her even more like I do.

Ok this book was so stinking fun.  A vampire, Ed, is totally not doing a good job hiding the fact he is a vampire according to his work mate, Juniper who he also mega crushes on.

Juniper and Ed are tap dancing around their feelings fearing the other will reject them because she isn’t young and stick thin or he isn’t HUMAN.  When they have a casual conversation, he turns jealous.  He needs her in his life but how.  Juniper is annoyed with her friend, and mad of her dreams, wont trust her with anything.

When the place they work is robbed they both had to share some things that make everything between then muuuuch better *Wink*  Again this was such a fun and sexy novella.  Its everything you need and want for a quick hour long read.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book for an honest review.

I am absolutely loving these holiday novellas Teresa is giving us.  They are a fun way to meet new characters (Jessie, King, and Butch), meet up with old characters (Dillion) and possible new love connections (Jake and Jessie)….HRMMMM

They are always moving our story line along plus getting us even more invested in the next story coming out which happens to be Adam and Angelina.  Guys, my heart is breaking with these two.  They fought so long and hard to be together….but doubts can be a bish to your soul.

I love the fact we might be seeing Sloan’s heart melting????  WHAT!!! I feel like maybe there could be a new little face in the VC mix and I am here for it!!!!

But what I loved the most was seeing my favorite characters all coming together to celebrate the kids…all kids….and helping their family member, Nicole, do what she does best.  Charity events for the kids.

#Review – VCard for Christmas (A Filthy Dirty Christmas) by Hope Ford

A Top 50 Amazon Bestseller!

He asked me to be his fake wife… I gave him my v card.

Yea, it probably wasn’t the smartest move.
He’s my hot, older next-door neighbor and he looks like he would be trouble.
But after one taste of my cupcake, he’s on a mission.
He watches me like an obsessed voyeur, and I probably should tell him no, but when he gets in a bind, I agree to be his fake wife.

It was supposed to be a fun Christmas Eve celebration.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for him.

And I definitely wasn’t supposed to end up in his bed after one date.

Lincoln is smart, handsome, protective and exactly what I wanted… but I wasn’t ready for the next morning when I hear another woman on the phone claiming to be his wife.

Was this all a game?
If so, it’s one I really didn’t want to lose.

Welcome to a filthy dirty Christmas! Forget sugar and spice and everything nice … this year we want to show off our naughty side. Taboo, dangerous, and over-the-top, we’re bringing you everything you were too scared to ask Santa for. **Don’t worry, loves, these are still packed with the heroes you crave and the HEA’s you deserve!

So I was looking for hot, fun, novella type reads and came across this multi-author series by author’s I’ve never read before. I figured why not and give them a shot and I’m glad I did!

VCard For Christmas starts off this Holiday series where we meet Lincoln and Avery. Avery just moved in but Lincoln had no idea until two weeks later. There’s an instant connection between them, one that neither of them can deny. It’s definitely a love at first sight kind of situation.

Lincoln ends up finding himself in a situation where he needs a wingman so to speak. With Avery pretending to be his wife so doesn’t get hit on by a business partner’s wife, things take a turn for better. Pretending to be husband and wife, definitely increases their attraction they have for each other. Until it gets to the point where they can’t do anything but consumate their fake marriage.

Throw in some sweetness, mixed with some spice and steam, and you get a quick, hot little read for those cool nights.

#Review – Dipped in Holly by Dana Isaly

Holly was just dumped.

Less than a week before Christmas. In public. Dressed as a slutty Mrs. Claus.
All she wants is to hide in the bathroom and have a breakdown in peace.

But the Silver Fox who owns the bar has other plans.

The moment Nick takes in Holly’s grey eyes and sassy attitude, he’s hooked.
There’s no denying the attraction that has sparked between them.
And when that tension finally snaps, he finds himself taking Holly to bed.

A kinky one night stand later, and they’re left questioning if it was enough.

Oh this book was fun. First let me just say that I would have one-clicked this based on the cover alone. Cassie with Opulent Designs did an epic job.

Okay now to review the book.

We meet Holly who got dumped by her douche of a boyfriend. He did it at a bar. Right in front of his friends. Nice right?

So of course she’s upset. Well in walks Nick who can I just say is quite delicious from the very first page we meet him. Now I didn’t read the blurb, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Nick is a silver fox and Holly is quite younger, so if you like age gap stories, you may just like this one.

Also, there is a light daddy kink in this book but it wasn’t overdone. It’s not my thing but I sure do love reading it and I respect people who play in this area. Safely and consensually of course.

After a night together, Holly and Nick realize that they don’t really want this to end. Who would? Especially when you receive the best O’s of your life from a mere stranger.

Once their night is over, they decide to go out for breakfast and talk about continuing this little delicious thing they got going on. I was actually hoping for more but then I saw a pre-order for the next book. So you bet your booty, I pre-ordered it.

If you like stories with an age-gap, a daddy kink, some Domination/submission and a whole lot of spanking, then this book is for you. It’s a fun, hot little read for those cold wintery nights.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

I love this series and it’s an auto buy on eBook and audio whenever they come out.  I love the characters and the story line.  I especially love how the storyline is ever evolving.  The series doesn’t get “stale” because the world is always moving and growing.  The bad guys get worse, but the Warriors get better and better.  Don’t get me wrong Jared is still my favorite BUT he gets competition at times.

This is not a stand alone but a novella deep in the series…like way way deep in the series.

This is a short novella that allows us to have a brief insight into the Warriors and their Mats.  Unfortunately, not all the mates and warriors were the focus, but the main starter characters were, and I was ok with that.  We see Nicole and her Mates raising money for the Social Services she works for.  They always have some hijinks and shenanigans for sure and pull Sloan along kicking and screaming.  But this book Becky gave us some insight to her choices and those of Sloan that made me get a bit teary!! Steve and his family were so sweet but seeing this young punk grow into a good father makes my heart happy.

If you are a fan I know you will read it and if you haven’t’ started Grab Damon, Book 1.  Fall down the rabbit hole with the rest of us!
