#WOTR24 #Review – Hoist the Flag: Triangles and Tribulations Book 1 by Cassandra Featherstone

***This was previously published in the Jingle My Balls Anthology. This version has bonus content!***

Click to send… and I’m outta here.

Being the infamous fairy tale ‘Jack’ isn’t as glamorous as it sounds. My entire life has been a series of memes—before they were even invented!

My current ‘Jack’ title is companion to the Ice Queen—who spent the first couple of years singing that song—but my sentence here is almost over. I’m going to make a run for it to retire with my shaker of salt on an island in the Caribbean while I drink piña coladas.

Before I leave, I realize my heart wasn’t as frozen as I thought and I have to save Queenie from her evil sister. We make a plan to escape together after the Yule celebration, but even that falls victim to my legendary bad luck.

Enter two bumbling pirates who were playing Robin Hood, a monkey, and a sea voyage to our permanent hiding place…only to trip over a bottle on the beach that contains a mysterious map to a legendary graveyard filled with famous treasure the moment we arrive.

My spill draws the attention of our pirate friends and two other local hotties who can’t resist damsels in distress.

Insert eyeroll here.

My girl and I didn’t ask to be conscripted on an adventure with two shifter pirates, a masseuse, a demi-god, and a merman who think we’re on the menu, but here we are.

Maybe I should have taken the Ice Queen’s musical advice when I first arrived ?

Review by Twinsie Kelly

First, this cover is amazing! I mean we have a gorgeous female pirate and I immediately think of a female version of Jack Sparrow. I was scrolling and immediately stopped to check it out. Second, the blurb grabbed me by throat, pulled my hair, and made me one click, like RIGHT NOW! Needless to say, I have incredibly high hopes that this story is going to consume me. I am ready to ride high and laugh my money maker off. However, I had a difficult time at the beginning. This could be because this is a ‘new to me’ author and I am not familiar with her writing style, but I was expecting a YO HO HO glorious grand time and got stuck in the snow. The beginning was quite foreboding with detail (that is needed) to give you each of the female character’s backgrounds so that you understand why they are planning to escape. There are funny and extremely hot scenes throughout the first half, but it didn’t really pick up until about the 60% mark for me. Now, this is where things get really good. We get a lot more action with the escape, add the shifter pirates and crew, plus a special request comes into play. Now, I am hooked! I need to continue this journey and see what the next leg has in store for this crazy crew!

#WOTR24 #Review – Baker Down: Magic and Mayhem Universe by A.J. Renee

Bougie Treats was my dream—and is Assjacket’s favorite spot for peanut butter and jelly donuts and chocolate croissants.

After an electrical storm damages my ovens, I’m left scrambling to keep the bakery running. I blame my reaction to the repair man on my earlier-than-normal mornings.

Keeping my growing attraction to the good-looking visitor in check should be easy… except at every turn, the simple repair is delayed by unknown forces.

How is a witch to protect her heart when fate keeps intervening?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

When the hottie that comes to fix your ovens, fries your girly circuits, you invite him to lunch! Cami is having a helluva week. Her ovens stopped working and she is running herself ragged trying to keep up with the bakery. D’Angelo has been called to fix her ovens. However, when one thing goes right, another goes wrong and D’Angelo has to postpone the repair. These two have an instant connection but both of them are trying to talk it down. He has to leave and she has to stay. This just won’t work! Fate, which most of the time has its own laughable agenda, pushes these two together. Oh, and we cannot forget about Ricky! He has to be one of my favorite familiars! Love him!

Baker Down is an adorably funny, super cute, and humorous story! If something can go wrong, it will go wrong, but for the absolute best! Just like with the other stories in this universe, you should expect quirky characters around every corner that will keep a smile on your face.

#Review – Blue Beaver (Awkward Book 2) by JB Heller


Did you know flannel can be deceivingly sexy?

I’m Charlotte, a fashion blogging, endo warrior (if you know, you know. If you don’t, buckle up). If devoting my life to fashion has taught me anything, it’s that flannel was never a good choice. But it turns out, I was wrong. Very wrong.

The first time I met Elijah he told me I was insane and I called him a lunatic. Then he came to my rescue, like a knight dressed in flannel, and I had to eat my words. Apparently, not all country folk are serial killers intent on feeding you to their pigs. Who knew?

Never in a million years did I imagine myself lusting after a dead sexy, flannel-clad, llama farmer. There’s no way it would ever happen. Me, flannel, and llamas, do not mesh. But the guy is basically perfect. He’s tall, built like a greek god, and kisses me like he was born to do it.

Too bad he’s currently sharing his bed with Satan’s Mistress—I mean—Delilah, his baby rescue llama. And she hates my guts.

**Please note the Awkward series is set in Australia and written in Australian English. As such you may assume there are some spelling errors within. However, it’s just how we spell things Down Under.
**For lovers of all things romantic comedy. If you’re a fan of Julia Kent, Pippa Grant, Lili Valente, or Emma Hart, you will adore JB’s Awkward girls.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

For the love of all that is holy! Llamas, blue beavers and flannel! So ridiculously funny but absolutely adorably cute! These characters have me hooked! When I finished Pink Bits, I was going to rush right in to read Blue Beaver, but something told me to wait. I got into another slump and NEEDED the hysterics and shenanigans of the Awkward series!

Elijah has no time for himself. He is always working and helping everyone else but himself. Then there is poor Charlotte, she has endometriosis and suffers badly during that time of the month. She self medicates at times with chocolate and wine. While on a chocolate run, she runs into Elijah and you just know that the sparks are going to fly. It is super cute because they are basically forced together and when this happens Charlotte finds out that chivalry is not dead. This is a huge wake up call for Charlotte because she has sworn off relationships. Even when she puts Betty on a leash for a while, she doesn’t want to fall in love. However, even with the llama demon spawn trying to keep Elijah and Charlotte separated, their draw to each other is absolutely undeniable.

These books are fast and fun. While turning the pages, you will laugh and swoon at the same time. Blue Beaver was truly awesome! I am so happy that I found this author and series!

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Wit and banter… check!

Super steamy scenes (wags eyebrows)… check!

Crazy exes… check!

All wrapped up in the most adorable happily ever after Hallmark movie… CHECK!!!

First, I have to say that when I picked this book up, I didn’t realize it was part of a series. Second, you don’t have to read the others in the series. This is a complete stand alone. There were some areas that I figured there was another backstory but in no way shape or form did it impact this story at all. This story has just about a little bit of everything.

Oakley and Finn are absolute opposites, including their age. Oakley has been commissioned to paint for Finn’s family celebration. Finn fights everything when it comes to Oakley, small talk, ogling each other, thinking about her, and the list goes on and on. Oakley tries to hate Finn for the way he is treating her. However, they these two end up crawling under each other’s skin and when Finn uses Oakley to try and get his ex off his back, Finn and Oakley are forced into positions that they can no longer fight.

I don’t usually care for a lot of books that are super sweet and sugary. In fact, when I first started reading this, it immediately felt Hallmark-esque. However, that did not last long at all. Finn and Oakley keep each other on their toes and became an incredible love story that I could NOT PUT DOWN! I am so in love with them that I am ready to go back and read the entire series.

Kennedy Fox is a new author for me but I am here to stay! You, my friend, have a new fan!

#WOTR24 #Review – All I Wank for Christmas: A Romantic Comedy by Tori Ross

Tori Ross, author of Contact High and The Cuffing Season Contract, is back with a laugh-out-loud holiday romance sure to jingle your nuts and roast your bells.

After a series of unfortunate events left Holly Hepperdine without an accounting job, the only way to pay bills, pay for her sister’s school, and help her sick mother is to work at the local rub and tug massage parlor, The Happy Stroke Club, making a hundred dollars a “pop.”

Jasper Nicholas is stressed to the max on Christmas Eve. His father is ill, and Jasper has to run the family’s delivery service tonight. On a whim, he stops for a quick massage, realizing too late that there are other perks of the purchased package. He indulges but can’t get the gorgeous woman with the witty banter out of his mind, even after they go their separate ways.

When Jasper comes down Holly’s chimney late on Christmas Eve, she realizes Jasper is Santa Claus’s son and tasked with delivering gifts to the world’s children. He also needs desperate help with navigation and inventory. Can Holly and Jasper keep their hands to themselves long enough to deliver the gifts?

All I Wank for Christmas is an irreverent, raucous romantic comedy standalone, sure to put you in the mood for a happy holiday season…no Happy Stroke Club needed.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

OMG, I just can’t even with this book! I laughed out loud and then had to stop and fan myself. This story will keep you on your toes!

Holly gives a handy to Santa’s son! What more is there to say??? You should literally stop reading this review and just read the book 😊

The story is a bit “over the top” but that is what makes it so great!

Jasper stops at a massage parlor thinking he could relieve some stress. He just didn’t realize the type of parlor he was going into and got so much more than he bargained for from Holly. These two have an instant attraction and both of them can’t stop thinking about each other. When Jasper searches Holly out and lets her in on the secret that he is Santa’s son, she skeptically goes along with it to deliver presents. The night is a disaster and if something can go wrong, it does. But the story and shenanigans that they get into will have you glued to this book eagerly turning to the next page.

We have all heard eleventy billion Santa stories but this one takes the cake! The characters are witty, the banter is hilarious, and the steam level continues to increase throughout the story.

I highly recommend this for a fun, but hawt, Christmas read!

#Review – Pink Bits (Awkward #1) by JB Heller


Did you know the medical term for a butt crack is intergluteal cleft?

My name is Reagan, and spouting random facts like this one at inopportune moments is my affliction. I’m chronically awkward, socially inept, and completely lack a filter. Believe it or not, men do not find these attractive traits.

When my sexy-as-sin neighbour barges into my apartment at the arse crack of dawn, everything changes. For some strange reason, my brand of crazy doesn’t send him running for the hills. Instead, he settles in for a nap on my couch…

Oh, and did I mention he was completely naked?

*Over 1800 Five-Stars on Goodreads*

*Please note this series is based in Australia, written by an Australian author, in Australian English. As such you may think there are a few spelling errors, however, that’s just how we spell things Down Under. 😉

Review by Twinsie Kelly

OMG, I wish I could give more than 5 stars! This book deserves soooo many more! If you need a pick me up or something to just lift your spirits, then YOU NEED TO READ PINK BITS! I read this in one sitting and literally laughed out loud so many times I would never have been able to keep track. Pink Bits is funny, obnoxious, witty, and sweet. Literally everything one needs in a book. I have recommended this to so many people, it is ridiculous. I honestly don’t know why I continue to write this review or why you are still reading this review. Just go read it! I’ll be over here moving on to the second in the series, Llama Drama. I’m hooked!

#WOTR23 #Audio #RomCom #GrumpySunshine – Worth the Fall, Brew Ha Ha #2 by Bria Quinlan, Narration by Brittnay Goodwin

Worth the Fall: Brew Ha Ha, Book 2

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?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

I want to start by saying RomCom and sweeter romances are not typically my thing.  However, I found these stories from Bria and fell in love with them.  I also admit her narrator is on point.  She makes me feel like “Hey that totally sounds like me and my friend’s reactions” when she tells the story.  She is the perfect voice for the women in the series.   They are all kinda a fun hot mess if that is possible.  LOL

Kasey’s entire world is falling apart.  Her boyfriends dumps her…she loses her apartment…she loses her job….I mean what else could do wrong.  Oh yeah having to deal with the police a few times in a 24 hour period.  Until Kasey rolls into the Brew and John is there like a guardian angel to help her with a couple issues she fears for her current situation.

Kasey meets a great cast of characters like Jessa, Ben, Hailey, Dean and Max….grumpy Max.  Max who has seen her in her undies.  Max, who is so alpha, he can’t help himself.  Max who is also scared to death of sweet Jenna.  Those were the best convos!!!  LOL  Jenna is a sweet evil thing.

Max has seen enough to know Kasey is not the girl for him.  She IS the definition of Hot Mess Express and yet he can’t stay away.  He is drawn to her with every encounter which makes him so mad at himself.  Yet he still makes her dinner and takes her to the movies. Also seeing a jealous Max was kinda fun!!

Kasey refused to look at the reasons why Max does the things he does for her.  Until all of a sudden, she can see him for him and that sends her over the edge (due to a couple extra drinks the bartender gave her) into confused heart land.

These two cracked me up.  They both are so stubborn to see what could be because they both are NOT into the other for XYZ issues.

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.

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?

My Review –

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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Second Chance Romance, Mafia Romance, Forbidden Love, Opposites Attract When sexy bad boy Samson opens Club Wicked in Vegas, he thought he left his ghosts and mob ties in New York. But when Lisbeth, his old flame, shows up to celebrate her bachelorette their steamy, uninhibited passion comes flooding back, and they realize their attraction is undeniable. Lisbeth breaks off the engagement, but her powerful, vindictive fiancé threatens to close down Club Wicked, and reveal Samson’s dark secrets and dangerous past. Samson refuses to lose Lisbeth again. He vows to protect her at all costs, but is the price too high? Lisbeth is willing to fight for what she wants since she can’t resist the addictive pull of their love. Will Samson deny his love to keep Lisbeth safe or will he be forced to seek the mob’s help—the very people he longed to escape? “An adrenaline-packed plot and star-crossed lovers you won’t want to put down this one down.” “A thrilling story of love and redemption. You’ll be captivated by Samson and Lisbeth’s epic love story.” Wicked Temptation is Book 2 in the Club Wicked Duet and although it is a standalone with an HEA and can easily be read on its own you may want to begin with Wicked Addiction.

My Review –

I received this book from the authors PR firm for an honest review.
I was super excited when I saw this was a spin off from an MC series. I am always looking for an MC series so now I want to jump back and read that entire catalog especially after meeting the characters in this series. (Serpents MC Las Vegas if you are looking for one too. But I also have my eye on Boa…just saying.)
I am also a HUGE lover of 2nd chance which this book has from jump. Samson and Lisbeth are a bomb of chemistry from the first time we see them together …at her bachelorette party no less. They are both transported in time to when he broke her heart. She has no clue why and he keeps that secret close to the chest until toward the end of the story but que the AWWWW When I read it. Yes, Samson is a swoon worthy Alpha Male who will beat the crap outta a dude, wash off the blood his hands, and then attack your lips in his office 5 minutes later. But that is why we love them. AmIRight???
Samson and Lisbeth have A LOT to get through. History, miscommunication, oh and that pesky douche bag fiancée. That is kinda a big one for Lisbeth. They also have to deal with people trying to destroy all that Samson and his partner Nick have built.
I am loving the series and the characters in it. Jax has me looking at him saying HEEY you. He might be broken on the outside with is scary scars buuuut those are the yummiest of men IMO. Nick. I don’t know about him. His heart is so broken. It is going to take a special lady to open him up. Perhaps Willow???? I mean her free spirit could be that woman. But not Daria please and thanks. #SayNoToSkanks
I am waiting for book 2 and cant wait to see who is the next alpha to fall.

A True Story of Murder, Family Secrets, and the Unbreakable Bond of Sisterhood

After more than a decade, when sisters Nikki, Sami, and Tori Knotek hear the word mom, it claws like an eagle’s talons, triggering memories that have been their secret since childhood. Until now.

For years, behind the closed doors of their farmhouse in Raymond, Washington, their sadistic mother, Shelly, subjected her girls to unimaginable abuse, degradation, torture, and psychic terrors. Through it all, Nikki, Sami, and Tori developed a defiant bond that made them far less vulnerable than Shelly imagined. Even as others were drawn into their mother’s dark and perverse web, the sisters found the strength and courage to escape an escalating nightmare that culminated in multiple murders.

My Review –

I purchased this audiobook.
This book …WOOOF…that is really all I can say. It is A LOT. I mean a lot a lot. There were days when I just couldn’t listen anymore because the story was just so much. Then I would shut it off and almost feel guilty. I could walk away from this horror but Nikki, Sami, and Tori couldn’t. What they girls lived through is unimaginable.
As a reader of true crime, when I saw this book I was very interested. I did a few google searches to see what I was going to be listening to. They did not prepare me for what horrors these kids and the adults around Shelly endured.
I just have to say listening to “The Wallowing” or when Karen was sliding down the icy hill and the after math the kids described I was completely undone. How these girls survive and endured is amazing.
I just want people to know they really need to be ready for this story. I just wish there was more about the investigation but maybe due to who told there want much. The fact that Shelly is out of jail right now is scary as heck!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Being relocated to a small-town PD in Colorado was the last thing I needed. Being assigned to babysit the captain’s daughter didn’t help either. She’s quirky, young, and unfortunately, the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Cap only has one rule. Keep my hands to myself. Turns out to be harder than it looks. Now I live in her house, and at night I hear her cries. She’s haunted by her dreams just like I’m haunted by my past. She may be crazy, or she may be the only key to unlocking the dark secrets of this town. The clock is ticking, and the closer we get, the more dangerous it becomes. We both heard the captain’s warning loud and clear……too bad neither of us listened.

Book 1 of the Timber Creek Series. Series will contain interconnected standalones.

My Review-

I received this book from the authors for an honest review.
I met this author after I saw a TikTok of hers about a different series. I am so thankful she has allowed me to read that series and is giving me her new series to read as well.
This is a great series starter with some amazing characters we meet. I admit as much as I LOVED the main H/h in this book, book 2’s couple has me clawing to read their story. I mean I messaged the author to say NOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW. She even agreed with me about their story being a great read to come.
Ok so this series starts with Jace in the shrink’s office not wanting to admit how he is feeling about the death of his partner and best friend. He is reassigned to a small town for 3 months to get his stuff together essentially. He goes to the town and immediately sees Camille. He gets the official “Hands off” by her dad…ya know…his new boss the Captain of the force. Unfortunately, circumstances will force them to be thrown together 24/7 which makes hands off near impossible.
Camille is having a hard time. She knows what people think of her and she is a broken women thanks to her ex-boyfriend, Stuart. She is attracted to the new detective until he talks. Then his mouth makes her remember what a jerk he is. LOL
This story has a LOT of chemistry. The slow burn of Jace and Camille is HAWT. LAWD, when they finally crash and combust, loooook out!!!
The side story of the missing girls is a low theme in the story until its not. Then we are running to figure out who, what, and why of what is happening. I admit I was so wrapped up in the Jace and Cami when I realized what was happening, I was like RUN FASTER!!! Get going!!!!!
But Easton and Ellie….I cannot wait!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vegas is where good people go to sin. Reno is where the bad ones go.

Amidst the drugs, weapons, and trafficking, a murder-for-hire market has emerged. And my motorcycle club is right in the thick of it.

If you can pay, we have a million different ways to solve your problem. You want someone to vanish without a trace? The Great Basin Desert is almost two hundred thousand square miles of “nobody will ever find you.” You want to make a statement? We’ve been known to hang bodies from the Reno Arch.

If you’re paying, we’re killing. No witnesses, no evidence, and no questions asked.

That is until we’re hired to locate and kill a group threatening biological warfare by exposing our city to a deadly virus they stole. It’s the big payday we need. But in order to take the job, we have to also agree to protect the spoiled brat who saw everything.

Small. Frail. Innocent. Frightened. I made her my little birdie, but she always wants to fly away. Too bad for her I’ve clipped her wings and locked her in my cage.

They say free birds sing, and caged birds pray. Her cries sound the same to me.

*Birdie’s Biker is a dark romance in the second run of the Royal Bastards MC. It’s sexy as sin, thrilling, gritty, and dirty. If you love tortured heroes and a heroine who learns her strength in the most depraved way, then you’ll love Birdie’s Biker.

My Review –

I purchased this audio book.
I am a HUGE MC reader. I was needing a new series when I was recommended this one. I admit when I saw Troy was a narration, I jumped. His narration is awesome, and I knew I would love the story. Kelsey was also so great at being Bridget/Birdie. She did a great job showing the naïve girl she was and the Bad Ass she was at the end.
Loki is a bad ass. He is happy with his club girl or hang arounds for company plus a bottle of Tequilla. His life is perfect. No woman is going to lock his down and make him unhappy like he sees his dad.
Bridget/Birdie is a happy, clueless socialite. She likes her life but knows she is missing something but what she doesn’t know. When Bridget is thrust into Loki’s arms for her protection, the two clash off like crazy. However, the more she pushes him, the more he loves her fire and sass.
I absolutely fell in love with the characters in this series but I will not lie, Roch….imma need to read your book ASAP. I am so glad I have more credits to grab that audio as well!!! LOL
The story of why Bridget is with Loki was good. The crazy crash of chemistry these two have is so fun to read. She pushes him and he pushes her, but they just can’t stay away from each other. The way their relationship starts and the fear they both have about this relationship was written well. They are both so unsure and yet sure of the other.
Like I said I cant wait for more from this series!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rockstar Elijah Wilder is famous.
Married.
And a father.
Ready to turn his back on the one thing he’s good at, the talent that made him a household name.

I’m a poor nobody.
Struggling to stay in school.
Failing miserably.
Believing I’m wearing the emperor’s new clothing and not fooling anybody.

Elijah and I don’t belong together. We shouldn’t have even met. But when his wife enters rehab, he needs a nanny.

I can’t bring myself to say no.

Familiarity breeds lust, and, when his wife becomes his ex, Elijah and I wind up together. But we’re a bad combination. I’m too young for him and I don’t know what I want. And the longer I stay in the rockstar life…

I’m pretty sure that’s not it.

But Elijah and I try anyway, even with all the odds against us.

My Review –

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
If you read Jade, then you know she can write amazing rocker stories. Bullet is by far on of my favorite books. I have got to say this book is like reading bullet all over again. The dynamic, the twists, the betrayals, the drug issues, and the LOVE!!! OMG Friends. This book I devoured. Like couldn’t put down and got mad when I had to do silly things like EAT because I was starving. I made Alexa read to me during that time!!!
Elijah is a famous rocker who, due to his wife’s drug addiction he ends up meeting Madison. When this stranger jumps in and helps in during a really awful time in his wife’s life with the care of his daughter, he hires her to help full-time.
Madison was failing out of school so the change to travel sounded amazing. The pay was anther great benefit to the job. What she didn’t expect was the love to the little girl and her sexy daddy.
The chemistry building between Elijah and Mads was so freaking thick!!! Gah when they finally crash I was screaming YES only to have Elijah be an idiot and I was cussing him. But when his jealousy flairs up and they give it a go, I was so happy.
However, when the day-to-day life on the bus, drama with band mates, and that old monkey on his back comes back, Mads is OVER it!!!
I had tears a few times in the story because we just love Madison. We want her to be happy and if that means alone then so be it!! I was fully invested in the story and characters. I absolutely loved the characters and the emotional ride we were on with Elijah and Mads.

#Review – Plant Daddy: Part 1 by KD Robichaux

Plant Daddy: Part 1 (Club Alias Book 8) by [KD Robichaux, Kayla Robichaux]

It was only supposed to be for research.
My best friend and fellow romance novelist, Vi Lowe, told me I should join some dating websites to look around and get some inspiration for my next book–about a woman who joins a “sugar daddy” site to find someone to fund her plant addiction.
But then I spotted him, my gym crush, aka Gym Daddy, on a dating app for kinksters, and suddenly I’m struggling to identify what’s for book research and what’s for experiencing for myself.
Maybe I don’t need to compartmentalize.
After all, they tell you to stick to writing what you know, right?
And what better way to learn about something until you truly know about that subject than to fully submerse yourself in it?
Plus, I know I said I was a born-again virgin after my divorce and was saving myself for Dream Daddy—aka Sir Jeremy—at Club Alias, but the likelihood of that happening…? Zilch. Nada. None.
Oh, and that guy who rescued me when my last dumpster dive for plant babies went a wee bit awry, who happened to set off all sorts of butterflies in my lady garden? I don’t even have the lady-balls to go back to the store and find out Dumpster Daddy’s real name, so no chance with him either.
No! I don’t have a daddy kink. I just have a thing for older men. Especially those with salt-and-pepper beards, and tattoos, and big, muscly arms and—
Anyway. Let’s hope Gym Daddy will find my weird awkwardness “endearing,” and I can then seduce him into becoming not only my book muse, but maybe even my real-life Plant Daddy.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Oh Lawd! Salt-and-pepper beards, tattoos, and big, muscly arms…..yes, PLEASE!! I was absolutely hooked from moment I started the book! I was a bit disappointed at the end because I didn’t realize it was a two part story. This is not a deal breaker for me but, reader beware because you will NEED to continue this story in part two. I swear on my TBR pile that you will need more! The characters and the story were very realistic. This is the first book I have read by this author and at times during the story I sat here saying, ‘this is exactly how my brain works’. The back and forth that happens within Sienna’s head is very real and at times extremely funny. I literally LOL’d many times throughout the story. And I am sure you will too! From everything that got her started dumpster diving for plants, doing research for a new book, and meeting a ‘daddy’ (her nicknames for her men are hilarious!), will absolutely keep you hooked. This is a page turner and will keep you on your toes. Bring on part two! I am ready!

USA Today Bestselling Author KD Robichaux wanted to be a romance novelist since the first time she picked up her mom’s Sandra Brown books at the ripe old age of twelve. She went to college to become a writer, but then married her very own alpha and had babies. Putting her dream job on hold to raise her family as a stay-at-home mom who read entirely too much, she created a blog where she could keep her family and friends up-to-date on all the hottest reads. From there, by word of mouth, her blog took off and she began using her hard-earned degree as a full-time editor. When her kids started school, and with the encouragement from her many author friends, she finally sat down and started working on her first series, The Blogger Diaries, her own real-life romance. She’s now published more than twenty stories in many different genres of romance.

#BookPromo – Tangled in Tinsel: a holida novella (a holidates series) by Trilina Pucci

Imagine being snowed in with four hot successful men.
P.S. they’ve all played the hero in too many of your naughtiest dreams.
Problem is, you work for them, and that makes them off-limits.
Except now they’re looking at you like you’re Santa’s cookies.

And they definitely want to take a bite.

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
Reed
Alec
…and Cole
for Christmas.

It might’ve started as a decorating job.
But it ended Tangled in Tinsel.

I haven’t read this yet but I keep seeing it everywhere. A book with one female and four males? Yes please!
