#WOTR21 – #Review – Joshua (Love in Scrubs #1) by AJ Renee

Joshua (Love in Scrubs #1)

From the author of the St. Fleur series comes a fun tale of finding love in the emergency room.

The single life had been treating Hazel Rivera better than she’d anticipated. With no one to report to, she did as she pleased, which included if and when she’d have a man in her bed. She felt no shame in satisfying her own needs, but when toy-play goes wrong, she earns herself a visit to the emergency room.

Squirming in pain, the last thing she expected was to find a sexy nurse assigned to her room. She could lose herself in a man like him—sinful eyes, full lips, and a kindhearted attitude—but before she can catch Joshua Bradley again, she’s sent home.

When life hands them a second chance, will they risk their hearts?

You need something sweet and funny…you must read Joshua! The way that Hazel and Joshua meet is incredibly embarrassing, but look out because the entire book is hilarious and sooooo sweet. Orgasms, burning sensations and a hot nurse….bahahahaha! Hazel and Joshua are both very independent people but their paths cross when Hazel ends up in the ER after using a new lube. As if I wasn’t already cringing and laughing by this point, then she meets Joshua, Nurse Hottie, in the ER. From here their chemistry is on fire, no pun intended, lol! These two were so sweet and funny, just absolutely made for each other. The epilogue finished this story perfectly. The story continued to be embarrassing, funny, and sweet the whole way through. This is a short and fast read. I was laughing from the first page clear up to the last page. I definitely was not ready for this story to be over but it ended perfectly. I loved it!

Love and Neck Ties 

Blurb – For Samuel Grayson, everything is black or white. As a funeral director, there’s no room for in-between. He’s accustomed to dealing with life and death, though he’s definitely more comfortable with the latter. Especially when it comes to a chaotic, petite, feisty ball of energy. Freedom Rayne. Samuel’s pretty sure her goal is to make his life hell, or so it appears. When Samuel boards a flight to Las Vegas for his sister’s wedding, the last thing he expects is to share it with the one woman who drives him crazy.

Freedom is eccentric and completely content with it. Floating around from job to job, she finds peace and tranquility in everything she does, including tormenting poor, uptight Samuel Grayson. When she finds herself on the same flight as him for her best friend’s wedding, she sees this as the perfect opportunity to get under his skin, something she tries to do every chance she gets. The problem is the more time she spends with him, the more she likes him.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not for Samuel and Freedom. Will they be able to forget about their trip when they return to Rockland Falls? What if one mistake turns out to be the best thing ever?

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

Zombie Queen 

Blurb – The beginning…
The beginning is always the best place to start when reflecting on what has been.
Thinking back on it, my life had been perfect.
Middle class girl in high school with a happy home life.
My life had been full of nothing but promise.
Life was good.
Everything was great.
And then my whole world went to shit. In one day.
The disease came first.
Then the dead.
It was a fight for my life every single day from the start. But I was different from all the rest.
I had heard my mother’s screams while watching my sister become one with the undead. All the while feeling like there was absolutely nothing I could do to help them.
It killed me.
What’s more, it changed me.
I did everything I possibly could to survive on my own.
And then I learned how to survive with others.
By being their Queen.
Their Zombie Queen.
And by being the most feared woman they ever came in contact with.

This is a WhyChoose novel full of zombies, a sword wielding badass chick, and an army of dudes.

Love and Neck Ties review- 

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

LAWD!!! Sammy and Free!! You two have been killing me this series!! I mean GAH!! I was so excited when I learned that Free was going to be Samuel’s HEA because honestly, I cannot imagine anyone else with him. As opposites as they are, they fit together perfectly in so many ways.

Samuel has always been annoyed yet intrigued by his sisters’ best friend who was essentially adopted into the family. He, however, also couldn’t stand her constant teasing and chaos of a world. Samuel is Mr. White and Black. Everything has a place and life isn’t messy. Life is orderly. Boy does Free rock his world right off its axis.

Freedom is the queen of the hippie life. She doesn’t eat meat. She doesn’t believe in animal testing on products. She is the most reliable if not slightly late friend you can ever want so why is she so attracted to her sister older brother. The man who wears ties to family functions…never mind what those ties do to her libido!!!

These two have fought the chemistry so long so when they are thrown together in the Vegas for Samuel’s sister/Free’s best friend Harper’s wedding as the only single friends, they kiiiinda lose control and kiiiind awake up a mess. Apparently, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas!!

I loved seeing Free be so sure in the decision to stay with Samuel and convince him she was the right person for him. Seeing Samuel so conflicted but stepping out of his norm to TRY this life with Free was adorable. I loved the scene with him in the shop…hilarious!! The entire scene cracked me up.

The conflict of the story made my eyes a bit leaky because we all wanted to punch Samuel. He has lived by his strict controlled world. He is having a hard time learning to trust his heart and not follow his brain. Free is the most amazing character in the series and when we finally got to SEE what her life was before this meeting Harper and her family, it was sad. We understand why family is so important to her and why she clings to those she loves so fiercely.

The epilogue was amazing, and the bonus epilogue made my heart sing!! I was so happy by that little chapter because …well we all needed to see this happen and see the HEA!!

Zombie Queen Review – 
I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing and crazy good this story is. The first chapter will have you on the edge of your seat. My heart was in my throat listening to Emerald tell you about the day everything changed for her. If that chapter does not keep you totally enthralled, then when you hear the description of the life and surroundings Emerald has…I felt my skin crawling because it was so tense and so claustrophobic. I was dying but in heaven dying!! It was totally a good thing!

This book is so fast paced at times with so much action and then other times we are feeling the despair and fear of Emerald. We know its been 16 months and we know she is sad, lonely and scared. When the Sam appears I admin I was scared outta my mind because women aren’t treated the best in these worlds and Emerald knows this first-hand. As the other guys start to show Emerald they are not the bad guys and can be trusted, we see her open up and hope beyond hope she had a safe place. A Family to call her own. Complete with a crazy Granny!!

The story is a lot of interpersonal relationships and dealing with the all the men and one Emerald. But when Emerald makes some proclamations, I was like GET IT GIRL!!! When our family is starting to come together and starting to find a rhythm, chaos finds them and its not even the crazy girl or the wild man who bring it home.

I loved the action and loyalty this family shows one another. But sweet Baby Jesus if you ladies don’t write another book, Imma be broken. I need some more time with some of the guys and Emerald.

Four Rounds Review
I received this book from the author.

I read the first chapter and was messaging Jillian how hilarious this book is. Seriously I snort laughed so many times in this book!

Cricket is so damn funny and off the wall, but I loved her so much. Once you get past her wild and crazy side you see a woman who wants to be loved for her but is so scared of being loved. Her life hasn’t been great, and she hides it well. However, her insane attraction to her friend’s brother changes that for her in an instant.

Theo is a total sick in the mud. He goes boxing with his sister and takes notice of the wild instructor immediately. When she just shoves her way into his life, he is not happy but also not unhappy about it. The only issue is…he can’t get involved with her given he is investigating her father’s dirty dealings.

The dates the two go on…had me in stitches!! I mean shut up!! I couldn’t stop giggling while reading!! The story of Theo’s investigation takes on the majority of the end of the story but seeing them try to be together through it all was well worth the read.

Seriously I would love to read a book about Jessica, Theo’s sister, because this insane family needs more wild in their lives.

Convict Blood Review – 
 
I receive this book from the author for an honest review.

Ok fraaaannz!! I am a dark reader but I am a scaredy cat dark reader…meaning…if its super dark I hide and cry. If its super dark, I freak outta my mind. Ok so now you know what kinda whimp reader I am. Lemme say, THIS BOOK I was totally rooting for the couple and not at all sad about what was happening. LOL

Vic and Henry are totally in a bad spot and get caught stealing. Now this is way way way back when Australia would send entire families to the jail if the parents were caught. So Vic and Henry along with baby Lizzy are facing this jail time. (You get the prequal for the story here https://www.authorvivianward.com/ )

The couple are bound and determined to last the 9 month journey and if they get separated, they will keep their heads down and noses clean. Well that is a great plan IN THEORY, but Vic soon becomes the eye of Marine Officer Kent’s eye.

Matthew Kent is not a great guy….initially. Yeah, he is forcing himself on Vic but soon they two do form a bond. Now I know people will scream STOCKHOLM SYNDROM, but I don’t think so. I think they really and truly grow to love each other. Matthew has cared for Lizzy and Vic while also looking for her husband but coming up short.

They two must overcome a lot while on the journey to the prison’s new camp. They wonder if they can make it ago and what will happen once they do arrive at the island. Right when we think we know what will happen, Vivian throws a giant couple of twists and turns and I was like DAYUM GIRL!! Why you gotta do me like this!!! LOL

Once they boat makes way to the mainland Vic has a lot of new things to navigate and new worries besides what she has been worrying about the entire journey. I legit cannot even begin to discuss what happens on the island because HELLO SPOILERS are not my jam. But if you like darker books and storied with crazy twists and turns with yummy anti-heros and sweet heros, then this is a book for you.

Mine for Now Review –
I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Friends!! Ran has been on my mind since I read When you Where Mine back last fall. I mean this dude is a hot mess of loyalty and family but also heartbreak and feeling less then.

You don’t need to read the previously mentioned book BUT to know Ran and his heart, I highly suggest it. When Elle comes and knocks him on his big burly ass, you will appreciate it all the more.
Ran has only loved Harper and after the heartbreak of losing her to Ash, he has given up on finding anyone. He knows he is a felon and who wants to marry or be with a guy like that? He is gruff and rough around the edges plus he is totally pushing away all his friend. But he is definitely the one guy you can trust to keep a woman safe.

Elle is over it all. After walking away from her fiancée and starting life over in this small town, she too is over dating. When an accidental tasing of Ran leads Elle to wonder about the hot stranger, they both think they will never see the other.

When Elle comes barreling into his life by helping and befriending his sister Nona, who also is a hot mess and I am dying to know her story with Ben, the two start a “friends with benefits” relationship. Each is afraid of the day the other will call it quits but is secretly falling head over heels with the other.

When miscommunication and self-doubt cause the two to separate, I was ready to nut punch Ran. I was glad to see Harper come and knock some sense into him with the help of Ash. These two are a perfect fit and they need to open their eyes and stop worrying about the fears in their heart.

I am such a huge fan of these characters. I admin the previous book was one of my favorite last year so this book was a very anticipated book by me. I can saw 110% this book did not let me down. I loved getting to know Ran and all his “faults” even more. But I really loved the sassy and fiery red head named Elle who helped him overcome his fear of being less then. But yo, I really freaking loved Gigi!!!!

 

#Review – Buy Me (Mistress Auctions, #1) by Alexa Riley

The Cortez men have found the one, and they’ll do anything to own her…including buying her.
Their obsession has driven them to the point of deceit, but they didn’t get to where they are today without getting their hands dirty to get what they wanted, and they’ll do anything to have her.
Stella is desperate, and selling her virginity is her only option to save the family land. The Mistress Auction is her last hope, but when she sees the two men who buy her, she’s worried her heart won’t make it through the thirty days.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Well this story was fun! I was looking for something short and hot to read. So I went through my list of favourite authors who write the shorties and came across this one. And it’s a menage! Even better!

The Cortez men were on fire! They grew up together and end up being business partners as well but they were missing something. A woman.

Stella was desperate to make ends meet when it came to her father. Having a gambling problem led his daughter to the two men who swore to do anything and everything to have her between them. Literally.

This story is book one in the Mistress Auctions series. It’s fun, short, and spicy! Perfect for nights where you just want to curl up with a glass of wine and disappear into another world for a bit.

Officer X2

Double the officers, double the pleasure.

What was supposed to be a fun girls night started out with me being pulled over for speeding. I thought for sure I was getting a ticket, but a familiar face let me off with a warning.

The night turned into a complete disaster when I found my designated driver passed out drunk at the bar.
Luckily, the officer from earlier gave me his card so I called him for a ride.
Little did I know that he and his partner would both be giving me a ride in more ways than one.

I receive this book from the Booksprout for an honest review.

Holy hawt stuff.  This was my first book by Derek and now I will make sure It is not the last.

I love love love novellas for the quick story you get when you have a couple hours to spare for some reading.  When I saw this book offered by Booksprout, I jumped.

This book is about Tara who is going to take her bestie out for a night away from her Douchey boyfriend. When Tara is running late, she decided a little speeding won’t hurt anyone right??  WRONG!!  She soon meets Officer’s Austin Harris and Tyler Malone.  Office Malone is not having it, but Officer Harris realizes this was the dream girl from high school.  After some chatting and an exchange of numbers, Tara leave to get her friend.

After a disastrous night with her bestie, Tara finds herself in the company Austin and Tyler.   Some drinks and fun games quickly turn into some naughty fun for all involved.  *Wink wink*

I really liked the story and that there was not an insta-love but there was a definite connection/chemistry between Tara and Austin.  I would definitely read more if there was a story for their continued story

Derek Masters grew up in Overland Park, Kansas and now lives in the immediate Kansas City, Missouri area.

When he’s not writing, you can typically find him working out in the gym, watching the game at one of his favorite sports bars, or hanging out at the park with his dog, Bully.

Goodreads

I received this book from the author.

I love a new type of book and to me this book sounded new and exciting.  A mystery to find out about Rosa and what’s up.

Cassidy gets a weird letter with a weirder vibe from her distant, adoptive mom.  When she goes to her apartment to get what her mom wants, she is attacked but soon saved by a hot stranger who happens to be Rosa’s neighbor.

Luke is wondering why Rosa’s door is open when he hears a struggle.  Soon he is fighting for his and this strange lady’s life.  They think they are ok and then end up on the run after an explosion rocks them.

While running they two soon start to discover a bit about the other while also trying to stay a bit distant because they don’t know if the other is involved in the attack.

As the two start to put pieces together they are even more lost as to who the other is…her with her secret Mr. Zero and him with his past life of “Murder” but they are still on the run trying to figure out what Rosa’s gotten them involved in!!

Amabel Daniels lives in Northwest Ohio with her patient husband, three adventurous daughters, and a collection of too many cats and dogs. Although she holds a Master’s degree in Ecology, her true love is finding a good book. When she isn’t spending time outdoors, she’s busy brewing up her next novel, usually as she lets her mind run off with the addictive words of “what if…”

Goodreads



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

I am a super fan of this series.  I will say you need to read the books in order or none of this will make sense.

I love this different POV from the secondary characters and what is happening during major scene in the first 2 books.  I enjoyed getting to know how people felt during important parts of the book after learning what Raider, the Seer, and the others were thinking about.

Asher and Layla are the 2 stories I am clapping about.  Every look into these love stories make my heart bust with joy!!

I live on a grain farm in Central Indiana with two mastiffs. Ginger who is the elder and thinks that she is a person. She has her own Sleep Number. Duncan Keith (named for the awesome Blackhawk and my fantasy future boyfriend) who just turned one. He knows that he is a dog and likes to sit on my feet. My husband, Mr. K. also lives with us but I’m not allowed to talk about him. He is shy and private. Please don’t try to discuss my sex scenes with him.

I started writing seriously six years ago. It takes a village to publish a book. The easiest part is getting the words out. I now work with the patient and fabulous Deliah Devlin who deals with my dislike and sometimes too much like of commas. Fiona Jayde and Sahara Kelly each work on my covers. I use three proofreaders to look for problems. I also depend on the lovely Francesca for insight and a butt kicking when necessary. Plus my incredible Admanistrative Assistant, David, who is as brilliant as he is handsome. They all help me make the most of my ideas.

I write about older characters because they are more interesting to me. They are to the point in life where they know what they don’t know. I currently have three series. The Casino Nights series is my hottest. It revolves around the members of Team 2 at the Red Rose Casino in Las Vegas. This group tends to allow their pasts to dictate their futures. The Cameron Farms Trilogy is small town based and features redemption and second chances. The Change Series is about people who are unhappy in their current place in life and when opportunity presents itself- they grab it with both hands.

I love to interact with readers and talk books. Any books. Follow me on Social Media and please come to a signing. I hope to see you soon.

Happy Reading!

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.

Try everything once. That was my rule in life, food, and dating. I never missed the opportunity to have a new adventure, play with the right flavor profiles, or spend an evening with the perfect guy. Who needed Mr. Right when there were a thousand Mr. Right Nows running around? So, when a handsome man with heat in his eyes and a little silver in his hair came waltzing into my bakery, I knew I was in trouble.

He’s annoying.

He’s rude.

He’s demanding.

And he just might be the perfect match for me.

Too bad he’s a dragon shifter, and dragons don’t do the whole fated mate thing. But maybe rules—mine and his—were meant to be broken.


Goodreads



I purchased this book.

I loved the first book of this series and so when I had some extra money, I grabbed the rest of the novellas I the series.  I love how each story is a standalone but reading them in order actually gives more enjoyment because each book seems to intersect with the story.

This book is about Ginger, the girl who will never settle down.  She is also a one time and only one time kinda girl.  She owns her sexuality and is open to getting what she wants…..sex with no commitments.  When she is stunned stupid over an overly cocky and arrogant man version of herself, Kingston, Ginger is not happy over the feeling she is having.

I loved the struggle Kingston has in claiming his mate and abiding by his Dragon culture rules over claiming his mate.  I also loved seeing Ginger freak out over falling head over heels for this shifter when she swore never to fall for the whole “MINE” mentality.

This is a short and sweet story and I cant wait to read more!!

A storyteller from the time she could talk, USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh grew up among family legends of hauntings, psychics, and love spanning decades. Those stories didn’t always have the happiest of endings, so they inspired her to write about real life, real love, and the difficulties therein. From farmers to werewolves, store clerks to witches—if there’s love to be found, she’ll write about it. Ellis lives in the Chicago area with her husband, daughters, and a German Shepherd that refuses to leave her side.
