#WOTR24 #NewRelease #LittleShepherds – Divine Embrace: Preacher’s Kid by Michel Prince

When Divinity ‘Vin’ Anderson first responded to her pen pal Peter Young, she had no way of knowing that a temporary class assignment would turn into a very real crush. Separated by thousands of miles, since he lives in Georgia, the reality of ever meeting in person allowed him to be an unfulfilled fantasy.Living in Eastpointe, Michigan she’d heard about the Little Shepard’s Camp where Peter is going her senior summer, but never had she imagined her childish fairytale dreams would change from theory to reality when she meets him. One night in the woods has her flying hard only to crash back to earth when she returns home. Reality had harsh edges hard enough to leave scars.Over a decade has passed when Vin is sent by Elrod Motors to Georgia. When she has to pass by a town with a familiar name. Descriptions from the past, now vibrant and real, emerge after speaking with recruited employees from his hometown. A picture is being painted of the saintly man who had abandoned her all those years ago. An apology and kind words have her falling all over even though she knows she needs to guard her heart. Only she can’t help sensing Peter is holding back a secret, one that could destroy her belief in love altogether or teach her how happily ever after can come when you step behind the curtain.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I love when Michel messages me and asked if I am free to read her books.  My reply to her is always “DUH!!”  I love the stories she can weave.

Divinity/Vin and Peter….this is a cool concept.  Pen Pals from 4th grade through high school.  When they finally meet, it was FIRE and then dude disappears. Not cool Peter!!   Vin moved forward with her life but always feels like she is missing “More” with her partners.

Fast forward to 10 years later,  Vin is standing face to face with the man she loved with her entire heart.  Peter still looks delicious. Peter also makes it know that God brought her back for him to correct the past.

The story was initially a little slow in the beginning while it was all being set up but once it gets going it gets GOING!!  I loved the story and the big twist at the end was GOOD!!  I did not see it coming and was just as mad/confused at Vin when it was happening!!

I am looking forward to reading more stories from other authors in the world.

#review #newrelease #partofaseries Slow Southern Kisses (Magnolia Grove 5) by T.C. Matson

Wrenley
When my grandmother asked me to run her bed-and-breakfast while she took a three-month vacation, I should’ve said no.
Now I’m stuck in this godforsaken town hours away from the pampered life I live in New York City.
Gone are my days filled with luxury and glamour. I’ve been reduced to being domesticated.
What can possibly go wrong?
Decker Black, that’s what.
He walks into my life—more like breaks in, but whatever—and immediately irritates the hell out of me.
I can’t stand him. He’s moody, grumpy, and surly all rolled into one annoyed glare.
Until one severe storm changes everything.
I never could’ve imagined a slower, simpler life was everything I was missing.
Unfortunately, my home is in New York and my heart is stuck in Alabama.

Decker
My life is quiet and calm. Just how I like it.
Until Wrenley comes barreling in out of nowhere and disrupts everything.
Gone are my days of balance and routine. She brings turbulence and chaos.
She’s quick-tempered with a bold mouth full of sharp jabs and is entirely ungrateful.
She’s a headache, and I’m ready for her to go back to where she came from.
So why can’t I stay away from her?
The more time we spend alone, the more I realize underneath all the anger is something beautiful. And I like it. I like her.
I never thought love and happiness was missing in my life.
Unfortunately, my small town no longer has everything I need.
It doesn’t have her.

Tragic hits Magnolia Grove when the town doctor passes away. bringing Jayson back home to bury not only his grandpa, but his mentor and his best friend. Now back home after the funeral Jayson found himself in now his office of his new practice, that his grandpa left him. but being back home gave him a chance to get the love of his life back. Zoey is dealing with her hopefully soon to be ex-husband who keeps dragging out their divorce, and also trying to keep her twins safe from it all. So having the boy that makes her heart flutter coming back to town is the last thing she needs right now. Jayson is going to try everything he can to break Zoey’s walls down and get back into her life. But will she allow him to not only into her heart again but into the heart of her twin girls? oh this book had my heart especially from Zoey’s point of view with having my divorce being drug out, and doing everything i could do to keep my son safe and happy.

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

#releaseday #NewRelease #Netgalleyarc #DoubleReview – The Last Days of Lilah Goodluck by Kylie Scott

“Be quiet and listen: He is cheating on you. The name of your soulmate is Alistair George Arthur Lennox. You will be passed over for the promotion. The winning numbers are 5-8-12-24-39-43. And I’m very sorry to tell you this, but you will die next Sunday.”

When Lilah Goodluck saves the life of Good Witch Willow as they’re crossing a busy L.A. street, the last thing she expects is five unwanted predictions as a reward. Who gives someone the winning lotto numbers then tells them they’ve only got a week to live? And who believes in that nonsense anyway?

But when the first three predictions come true within twenty-four hours, Lilah’s disbelief turns to mild panic. She’s further horrified when she nearly runs a car off the road that belongs to Alistair Lennox, who just happens to be the illegitimate son of the British king.

While Alistair is intrigued by her preposterous story, Lilah is adamant about resisting the heat between her and the playboy prince. If she denies he’s her soulmate, then the last prediction can’t come true, right? As the days count down, they become maybe friends…and then maybe more. But between the relentless paparazzi and some disapproving royals, finding time for love isn’t easy, especially when her days may be numbered.

Red White and Royal Blue meets The Last Holiday in this delightfully quirky novel from the New York Times bestselling author of End of Story, about a woman who unexpectedly finds “fall in love with a prince” at the top of her bucket list.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

I have to say I am a reader of all Kylie’s books.  I will be honest when I say some just wrap me up in a happy bubble for days.  While other books are easy to put down and come back to later.  I was really excited for the premise because I have never heard of a story like this.  So I was hoping for the first vs other book.

When the book started, I was all in.  I loved the way Lilah and Willow met and her reaction to what Willow tells her.  I mean I would have freaked out too right??  ANYONE would have.  Because when you get that information, anyone would ignore it but also kindddda wonder.  When things started to go like Willow said, Lilah FREAKED OUT as I would have.  I mean you meet your soulmate like willow said you would.

The story of Lilah and Alistair’s romance was cute but at times I felt like the chemistry was a little lacking. There were spots when I felt the story was rushing which is also why maybe I felt the lack of the love/chemistry.

Overall, I did like the story and would tell a fan of her writing to grab the book.

I received a copy of this book by NetGalley for an honest review.

I was excited to get this book. I so enjoy a good Kylie Scott read.  This was different but I was intrigued by this story.  I like the beginning and how Lilah finds out her fate.  There were great parts to this book and then there were some ok parts.

Willow gives Lilah the information everyone wants to know about their fate when Lilah saves Willow. She doesn’t believe Willows predictions until things start to go the way the Good Witch Willow says. Then Lilah starts to freakout a bit. Lilah almost takes out the one and only Alistair Lennox the same man Good Witch Willow says is Lilah’s soulmate. I have to say the chemistry between Alistair and Lilah is great. Along the way Lilah finds Alistair is a kind loving amazing guy. I enjoyed reading and seeing Lilah complete things on her bucket list and seeing all Alistair does to help.

This was an enjoyable read.  I did find it easy to set down but my curiosity of what would happen next had me picking it back up. If you are a fan of Kylie Scott’s works you should not overlook this one.

Kylie is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today best-selling, Audie Award winning Romance author.

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

Emmalee has just ended her 6-year relationship with her lawyer fiancé because he cheated but somehow made it her fault (insert eye roll). she’s been back home for 2 weeks and is being forced to listen to her parents’ special time. her brother just offered her to live in his new retail property and her bestie is making her go out. Wanting to make it big in the NFL, Mattie was on his way to make it as the famous quarterback that he wanted to be, but one stupid night basically ended his career trying to stop a fight, ended up with a cut down the middle of his throwing hand all from a broken beer bottle. Both back in Magnolia Grove for a different reason could it be fate or just flirting around with each other. Also, Mattie is Emmalee’s bog brother’s best friend and is totally off limits or at least it was. Will that cause a flag on the play or will it head for a touchdown.

Cary Hart hails from the Midwest. A sassy, coffee drinking, sometimes sailor swearing, Spotify addict, lover of all things books!

When not pushing women down the stairs in the fictional world, Cary has her hands full. Soccer mom in all sense of the word to two wild and crazy, spoiled kiddos, and wife to the most supportive husband. In addition to writing full time, she enjoys binge watching Netflix, laying around in her hammock and baking up cookies for her family and friends.

Cary writes real, raw romance! In her stories the characters deal with life’s everyday struggles and unwanted drama, they talk about the ugly and they become the broken. Everyone deserves a happy ending, but sometimes before you can appreciate the light, there has to be darkness.

As a child, if someone would have told her she would become a writer, she wouldn’t have believed them. It wasn’t until she got her hands on her first romance novel, that the passion grew. Now she couldn’t imagine her life any other way – she’s living her dream.

HUNGRY LIKE THE WULFF

CRAZY LIKE THE FOX

VOLATILE AS THE DAY WAS LONG

Rainer Wulff was perfectly fine with leading an eternal life in solitary, at least he thought he was, until Jarod Fox broke into his home and his life.

There was something about the fox that intrigued the wolf, though it was mostly on the surface.

Jarod was crass, ill-educated and arrogant, whereas Rainer was more reserved, intelligent and gracious. The wolf regretting making the fox his eternal mate, never considering that Jarod’s bad behavior only heightened when he became a vampire.

Even though they were polar opposites, there was nothing they wouldn’t do for one another.

Well, just about anything.

#wotr #attendingauthor #Standalone Broken Scars by J.M. Walker



Ruined. Tortured. Broken.

What could have been the perfect childhood, turned into a hell that the devil himself would shy away from. I was forced to deal with an evil that would make the darkest of souls cringe.

Lily Noel was scarred but beautiful. She was perfectly flawed and everything that I needed.

Attraction bordered on obsession.
Passion bordered on ecstasy.
Addiction bordered on insanity.

Nothing could get in the way of our love.
Nothing…

Lily was out on a date when she found out the guy was actually married and to stay out of a storm she wondered into a local tattoo shop on her way home to avoid the rain but little did she know her work was going to change. Lucas had the worst childhood and still continues to battle with those demons everyday when this girl walks into hi shop like she owns the place. Will these two over come their demons together or will they tear them apart. This book has so many twist and turns and will keep you on your toes till the very end. I freaking loved every bit of this book and love Lucas and Lily so much.
