Review by Twinsie Angie

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

SWEET BABY JESUS!!  The chemistry was CRAZY in this book. YO I was dying for these 2 to get to banging…just kinding but kinda not.

Lance is seriously the most swoon worthy male ever.  I mean to see your mate when she is a child and you are a grown ass man…woof cannot even begin to deal with that ….then when you want to come forward and be like “Hey guuuuurlllll” she is kidnapped for 3 long years.  So much happens to Carrie but she returns and is dealing.  Lance is trying REAL hard to keep his stuff tight but when the woman who is your forever, the other half of your soul, and your future is giving you dagger eyes…yeah it kinda flips him out.  Broody doesn’t even begin to cut it with Lance.

There is so much for Carrie to understand.  She doesn’t know what this mating mark is.  She doesn’t understand why its been hidden from her.  She doesn’t understand why Lance would be fated with a damaged mate like her.

Lance on the other hand is flipping because he has loved Carrie since for ever but he wasn’t able to save her and he feels like he let her down by masking the mate bond.

GAH these 2!!  I am telling ya…intense chemistry.  As always we get to see some hilarious dialogue and funny character scene stealers like Scott from the car dealership.

But again I absolutely fell in love with these characters.  The family bond and mating dynamic is written very well by AJ.  I look forward to each of her books and cannot wait for who is next.  I admit I hope its Jaz.  The girl needs a bright sunny day after all her nights in the dark.

#WOTR24 #Paranormal #Vampire #Demons #Witches – Jill, The Mates book 5 and The Protectors book 23 by Teresa Gableman

Once again, Jill stood at the crossroads of her life. The decision to leave her role as a VC Warrior had been a devastating choice that shattered her very being. Yet, the Warrior she had been molded into demanded the sacrifice, pushing her toward an uncertain future.

As she is confronted with a terrifying opportunity, Jill understands that there is only one path she can follow, even if it means risking everything she holds dear. The weariness of being a burden to others and, most importantly, to herself fuels her determination to forge her own destiny.

Loyalties will be strained, friendships challenged, and the bonds she cherishes will be tested. It’s a journey of self-discovery, a quest to unveil the real strength within Jill ‘Nichols’ Buchanan that hopefully leads her back to where she truly belongs.



Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Jill is one of my favorite characters in the series.  She is brutally honest and takes no crap.  One the flip side she does take unnecessary risks to save those she loves.  Again bad ass WARRIOR!!  Slade is the perfect ying to her yang. He is so controlled and methodical but falls hard for the most uncontrolled and least methodical.  I mean I adore them.  So seeing them in this weird place of indecision was hard for me.  I mean we all know Jared is my mans BUT this couple is the heart of the series in many ways.

Jill did the hardest this she ever did when she trained and became a Warrior but she also did the bravest thing when she walked away…or did she.  She was so in her own head she didn’t really listen to all that the others said.  This book she finally listens to what others have to say. She soon realizes everyone loves her and wants the best for HER even her crazy mate, Slade. Slade also learned he needs to let his mate have a little bit of space PLUS open up to her about all things relationship wise and duty bound.

The side story of Gello, the demons, and Daniel were pretty important in the series overall ARC.  It was great to see more of the Dark Guardians and meet a few new characters.  *wiggles eyes up and down* this could get interesting  LOL

Daniel…I know he isn’t a child anymore but like Jill thinks, I think he IS a child.  The end of the book had me teary because we don’t know what is going to happen, but the path Daniel is on seems to be a lonely one.  Am I ready for him to find a mate?  No but damn he needs someone to love and cherish like his dad does his mom.

Review by Twinsie Dee

i bought this audiobook here is my honest review.

When Nicole is just trying to do her job, but her boss is making her participle in the corporate relay race, which is the last thing she wants to do, but her boss is determined to win not that Nicole cares really but guess she’s needs to be a team player while still doing her job. But with all this training now added to her schedule that her boss is making her do, don’t think she’s not going to ask him for a raise because of all of this. Since the rules for the race says they need to have a female representation on each team and Nicole was the lucky winner for her law firm. Zack is talked into being a trainer for this race and luckily gets paired to train Nicole, he isn’t one to flirt or deal with women like Nicole, but he finds himself feeling all these different feelings he’s never had before. These two find themselves working together in more ways in one Zack has to evaluate Nicoles yard when a landslide is happening in her very backyard, and with him being her trainer to the fiery spark has them pulling to each other and sliding in more ways than one. Which runner will cross the finish line first for their law firm and get bragging rights. this was a funny and good story, I laughed too hard in more than one spots, great read.

#wotr #attendingauthor #seriesstarter Perfect Risk (Mason Creek 1) by C.A. Harms

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.



Review by Twinsie Dee

i bought this book here is my honest review

Sadie had enough of the big city life and once she got the call that her mom broke her hip, and she found her boyfriend cheating on her that was all it took for her to pack up her and head back home to Mason Creek. Moving home brought excitement and joy it also brought back the memoires of high school and bring made fun of for being dumped and humiliated by the high school quarterback Wyatt Murphy who was now the town deputy. Wyatt first found out that Sadie was back in town when he ran into her spilling her coffee all over the front of her, and then Sadie found the perfect cottage to rent not reading the fine print that Wyatt was the owner. Will these two leave their past in the past or will they make it awkward in town, it could be the risk that they both need to take. omg this is the perfect book to introduce someone into the best town that is Mason Creek.

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast

#WOTR24 #Review – Shadow Unveiled: Reapers Book One by Tara Vasser

After a particularly nasty car wreck, I met Death, and he let me live. My doctors claim it was a hallucination brought on by the trauma, but it felt pretty damn real to me. Especially the part where Death said he’d call on me soon. Months after, he still hadn’t shown his face, but my life had fallen apart while I waited. Every waking hour was filled with the incessant chatter of voices in my head, and whenever I closed my eyes, I was plagued by night terrors. It was too much for my fiancé to handle, so he left. I couldn’t get out of bed anymore, so I got fired from my job. Even my own family began distancing themselves. I had no one and nothing left, except the voices and nightmares in my head. I couldn’t wait for Death anymore, so I decided to go to him the old-fashioned way–by dying.

Things don’t go as planned when Death sends his most loyal Reaper, Gunnar, to thwart my foray into The Realm of the Dead. That night I learned there is an entire hidden supernatural world, and the icing on the cake is that I’m a part of it. A BIG part. Magical abilities I didn’t know I had start to manifest and grow, gaining me all kinds of attention. Death offers me a place among his Reapers, and a power-hungry Necromancer tries to convince me to join his plot to overthrow Death.

Both sides make compelling arguments–but which one is right?



Review by Twinsie Kelly

This is truly a unique and captivating story. The world that this author has created is absolutely spellbinding. Tara Vasser is a ‘new to me’ author but has officially pulled me in as I fell into this story headfirst and couldn’t stop until the very end. Chloe feels like she has officially been abandoned. However, when she tries to end her life, Death comes barreling back into her life and does not let her disrupt the delicate balance between life and death. Chloe feels like she is going, very literally, insane. However, her saving grace is a vampire named Gunnar. She soon finds that she is a very powerful…well, no one knows what she is yet, but they are working on trying to figure it out. The one thing everyone can agree on is that she is powerful. While figuring out her powers, she has slipped into Shadow and has come face to face with a necromancer who has it out for her. She has so many obstacles to overcome but does it like any one of us would, she is scared and questions everything.

One of the things that I love about this book is that the story world is completely different from anything that I have read. The characters are great, and our strong female main character is like a normal human being. I have read so many stories where the lead just goes along with the magic stuff like they have lived it their entire lives. But Chloe, she is truly scared, she questions everything, she doubts herself, she doesn’t know if she is doing right or wrong, she truly was at the end of her rope. She is very real, and I think that is the cherry on top and what makes this book great.

I am loving this series and can’t wait to dive into book two!

By the way, don’t forget to pick up the prequel because it might give you some insight into what Chloe is going through. 😊

#WOTR24 #Review – No More Black Magic (Here Witchy Witchy Book 1) by A.L. Kessler

A hex. Ancient runes steeped in black magic. A decades-old crime. Abigail Collins has her hands full as a Paranormal Investigation Bureau Agent. Accompanied by a stubborn werewolf, challenged by an overprotective coven, and introduced to a Cult linked to her parent’s death, Abby must solve her case before the murderer comes for her. When an ancient langue connects her past with the murderer’s Abigail might just be in over her head.



Review by Twinsie Kelly

I really love when the blurb to a book instantly pulls you. It is even better when the story consumes you! I am a sucker for paranormal books! Abby is a powerful witch and works for the Paranormal Investigation Bureau, but also works “on the side” for the vampire that raised her. She is brought in to investigate a murder case where the only information they have on the deceased is an intact arm with a murder scene that brings her into a world that involves her deceased parents. As Abby works on the investigation, she uncovers more questions. The further she dives into this, the more her own life is in danger. This is definitely in the suspense category because everywhere Abby turns, there is a new obstacle that makes you question everything you know. It is harrowing and heart wrenching. You never know who is truly on your side. Even then, how close do you let the ones you love in? I did not see the twists at the end. This story is full of magic, criminals, hexes, multiple types of paranormal creatures, and a crazy cult. What more could you really want from a book? I look forward to continuing this series.

i was given this book by the author for an honest review

When needing to eat intel’s opening up all the windows in the middle of the night, for all kinds of monsters to come into the house. Thats what keeps Damiana alive she’s always knew she was different and no one that she knew was like her. she isn’t afraid of the monsters that lurk in the shadows, but when a human figure finds her home in the middle of nowhere, she has more to deal with then she thought. Lies, deceit and distrust feed her better than anything so you need to watch yourself or your soul could be next. the twist, turns and mystery are great, Albany never freaking disappoints and this is another amazing book by her.

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.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Sweet Southern Memories (Magnolia Grove 2) by C.A. Harms


Life doesn’t always go according to plan, a lesson I learned the hard way during my divorce. My first love returns home just in time to watch me pick up the pieces, and the moment I lay eyes on him every memory rushes back.

Jayson Lincoln, the man who still makes my heart beat fast, after all these years. But he’s Doctor Lincoln now and I’m a far cry from the carefree girl he left behind.

I’m learning to navigate life as a single mother of twin girls and he’s reluctantly home to take over the family practice. We may be back in the same small town, but we’re still worlds apart.


It’s always been her. No one could ever measure up to Zoey Harding.

And I’ll always regret walking away from her and our hometown, for the big city to chase my dreams.

The longer I’m back, the more the echoes of our past whisper what could have been. But it’s not just about us, and her daughters steal my heart and mend what’s been broken for far too long.

Zoey’s afraid to trust me, but I’m determined to heal the fractures of her heart and prove that this time I’m not going anywhere.
