#WOTR21 #NewRelease #ReleaseDay #SpinOff – Finally Us, Next Generation Book #5 by JM Walker

Finally Us (Next Generation, #5)

-Vince-
She was perfect.
Her heart.
Her soul.
Everything.
I had been in love with Gigi Rodriguez for as long as I could remember. I had never been shy about my feelings toward her. Everyone knew how I felt. Except for the person who mattered most.
I needed her like I needed my next breath. Our souls called out to each other, entwining together to form a bond I had never felt with another person.
She was passionate.
Strong.
Mine.
Just when I thought I had her in my arms for good, an unknown force threatened to take away the only thing I had ever wanted…

-Gigi-
He was stubborn.
Obsessed.
Dominating.
Vincent Stone Junior was the very reason I danced. Every time I moved, I moved for him. He just didn’t know it yet.
It all started the night of his eighteenth birthday, but school got in the way and I didn’t see much of him for the next three years.
When he came home for good, I knew that he had one mission: To crack down the walls I had built.
I didn’t want to love him.
I didn’t want to need him.
But losing a piece of myself made me realize that I did in fact want those things. He taught me to love myself first and that he would be there, ready and waiting…
For me.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Vince and Gigi…I have been WAITING for these two to get it together and finally admit there is something there! Gigi needs to stop pushing him away because he is younger and Vince needs to grab his woman and claim her.

This story is a great age gap, friends to lovers, friends from childhood, etc story. Vince and Gigi have always had a powerful chemistry.  Both wanted the other and did things to make the other jealous/take notice but secretly pined for the other…..ok so Vince quietly chased away any prospective dates for Gigi but who cares…LOL

This story is told as a little bit of a slow burn but once Vince and Gigi hit the sheets, the burn is met with gasoline and it’s an explosion of dirty words and positions. Not enough Orbit gum people not close to enough!!!

Vince has known he loved Gigi and was going to do anything and everything to prove to her he was her forever.  Gigi had slowly grown her attraction for Vince but the fear of the age gap and how her friends would respond held her back.

One night of passion changed everything and then 3 years later they are back to face down what happened and the walls she erected after their night together.

Vince…OMG he needs a medal for his ability to deal with Gigi and her walls.  They were taller then the Nights Watch in Game of Thrones..dunno the reference I am sorry for you…..He puts up with some much from his girl.  He will not let her go and will do everything to let her know he is never leaving again.  Gigi is a hot ass mess for this boy…errrr….man who has stolen her heart and melted down each and every wall she has tried to put up.

When they finally realize they are not going anywhere and they are going forward some weird things start to happen and some weird vibes start to appear.  Gigi and Vince have to deal with some trauma that could break them apart if they aren’t able to deal with it.

I am going to say it but Vince might be my favorite of The Next Generation Kids.  I love Meadow as my favorite girl, but Vince is the swoon worthiest male of them all I think.  Seriously…SWOON WORTHY!!!!  But damn that mouth too!!!  LOL  Gigi is his Queenie in public and his little slut in private!!

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

OMG so excited it is finally Vince and Gigi turn.  These two were meant to be ever since they were little. Vince has loved Gigi ever since he was little, but he is five years younger than Gigi and he knows he must by his time to prove he is enough for Gigi. When he turns 18 they share what Gigi thought was a special moment before he left for school.

Vince is 21 and returned home now is his time to make his move on Gigi. Gigi is his and always has been. Vince hurt Gigi bad and she has some big walls that he needs to tear down. Vince is patient and tries to convince her what he knows. OK she may know it too but not ready to let him in.

This is an amazing slow burn and when these two finally get together they are like an explosive. Age is just a number and has no bearing when chemistry is involved. I love seeing these two together and how they interact together. We even get a few twists in here too. I do believe Vince is my favorite so far but are a few more on the way so we will have to see if he can hold on to that special place in my heart.

#Review – Rebellious and Reckless by Michelle A. Valentine

Rebellious and Reckless (Campus Hotshots #1)

He’s Rebellious in the ring and Reckless in Love.

Sky Cold knows exactly what she wants, and it’s Luke Finnegan, the college campus star quarterback. The only problem is she’s not even a blip on his radar. In order to get noticed by her crush, she’s willing to exchange the extra bedroom in her apartment to Luke’s tattooed, older brother to find a way into his social circle.

Baker Finnegan is determined to get out of his father’s shadow and do things his way. When he falls on hard times, and the sexy, slightly nerdy co-ed Sky offers him a place to live in exchange for a fake friendship, he can’t pass up the opportunity. But when Baker quickly realizes the only match he wants to make for Sky is one with himself, he has to convince her to look past his reckless ways.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Sweet torture and a glutton for punishment. Life isn’t perfect and we don’t always get what we think we need. Think, being the key word. Things never seem to go the way you want but in the end it just works. The story is a bit on the cliche’ side because ultimately we have a nerdy type of girl who essentially has a makeover and then gets the attention of the hot guy. Only in this story, she has the attention of two brothers…both are hot in their own ways. Sky gets Baker to agree to help her get a date with his brother, Luke. Then the fun starts! Baker moves in with Sky as part of the deal. But then they start to get close. Both of them have secrets…and both involve part of their family. These secrets are most definitely not cliche’. You seriously need to read this.  As things continue to unfold they can’t deny the pull that they have between each other but Sky still can’t decide if she wants Luke or if she is falling in love with Baker. 

“Do you have your Finnegans confused?” This is one of my favorite lines because this sums Sky up completely!

We have the hot jock, the rebel fighter, and the sweet librarian. All of the makings of a romantic comedy that will keep you turning the pages. Even though some of the story is cliche’, it is still a fun read with its own twist. And that makes it a must read!

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I was really looking forward to this book but kinda feel it was just as much Daniel’s book as it was Pam’s book.  This book was Pam dealing with her past that also affected her son Daniel and mate Duncan.  We find out even more about Kenny, what he did we didn’t know about, and who he was in business with we didn’t previously know.  Like dude was so bad!!

We also see Duncan trying too be a badass warrior but also dealing with his son and mate’s need to know and not know what is happening in the world.  We see Daniel coming to terms with what makes him special plus what may be his downfall.  We see Pam struggling as a mom, wife, social service employee and so much more.  She wants her family to be safe and her friends to be ok, but she is also losing control of everything around her.

The book was good as it moved us forward in the world.  We see Duncan and Pam reaffirming their love and commitment to each other, but we also see the struggles that being parents have on them.

I loved getting to know grown up Daniel.  I can’t wait for his real book even though I am sure it’s a ways off since he is not ready for “grown up stuff” yet.

I loved the movement in the story line of Charger and Raven.  I am eagerly awaiting that book in my greedy hands!!

#WOTR21 #Series #Family #Spinoff – Being Us, Next Generation book 4 by JM Walker

Being Us (Next Generation, #4)

-Tanner-
She was beautiful.
Loved.
Strong.
After hiding away for six months with just my dog to keep me company, I was forced out of the shadows only to end up in the arms of an enemy.
Beatrix Lister saved my life. I had been taking care of myself for so long, I didn’t know how to ask for help, but she refused to go down without a fight.
She was warm where I was frigid.
She was kind and caring where I was a cold-blooded monster.
I did things to survive.
I battled the evils of the world to live.
I didn’t deserve her heart but fell in love with her anyway.
As much as I wanted to be with her, I needed answers and I would do anything to get them.
Even if it meant breaking the heart of the only woman I had ever loved.
~
-Bee-
He was lonely.
Intense.
Brave.
Tanner Horsch came into my life unexpectedly. He was like a tornado, ripping up everything in its path.
There was something about him that I craved.
His touch. His words. His need to survive.
But as we were getting to know each other, he still had walls up.
He refused to let me in knowing my family didn’t approve of him.
I refused to let him go.
After being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he escaped and eventually he ran right into my arms.
He was the villain of someone else’s story, but he was the hero of mine.
I just prayed that he could see that not all monsters are truly evil.
Before it was too late, and he gave himself to the enemy.
My family.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

So when I read this book pre-publication I didn’t know who the book was about.  Imagine my shock when I find out it was Bee (Tray and Zillah’s daughter) and the Anti-hero Tanner!!!  GASP! What a shocker.  Then to make it even more bananas, it’s a SLOW BURN by JM….uhm what?  Does she even know how to do Slow Burn?  I mean JM has her characters banging on like page 1!!!  Well friends, I can fully report she is VERY ABLE TO SLOW BURN (or Cock Block as Tanner says) us readers.

Tanner…ya’ll we hate him right!!  I mean he is vile, evil, and he did bad stuff to Sunny *Sniff* plus he put our girl Meadow through some stuff for a stupid ring from his daddy.  I gotta say JM Had her work cut out for us in loving him.  But friends…..I DO LOVE HIM…………I mean….I Wanna have his babies and I wanna cuddle and watch movies with him…YES he is total book boyfriend material!!

Tanner… friends he is complex…yeah let’s just say complex.  We soon discover a lot about him.  We learn he is on the run and hiding from people.  He is looking to figure out who is after him and why???

Bee is a girl and a very protected girl in Greyson’s Biker Family.  The twins make sure she does not have too much fun or get taken advantage of when partying.  So one night after being drug away from her friends, she sits at home with wine shaking her booty when Tanner appears!  Her kind heart takes one look at him and decides to help him…a stranger in need…someone she has no clue hurt family members in her family club……….ya’ll know this is gonna go crazy right.  I mean Grey flips out but helps Tanner thanks to being vouched for by some pretty important people.

The story of Tanner getting his answers is a great one and I was like WHAT!!!  And Oh SNAP this is no Bueno!!  But friends the love story between Tanner and Bee is probably one of my favorites.  I think JM did a solid job developing these characters.  She made sure they knew about the other before getting involved.  They knew the uphill battle they faced with her family and his reputation and yet they are willing to risk everything for that love.

#WOTR21 #AudioBook #review #Family – Love and Pancakes: Rockland Falls, Book 1 by Lacey Black

Love and Pancakes

Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.

Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.

What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book from the author but purchased the audio book.

Ok since I am reviewing the audio book I gotta say….HEEEY Rhenn’s narrator.  Holy Sweet Baby Jesus that voice.  Imma tell ya, you will be thanking me for that right off the bat.  I don’t want to know what the narrator really looks like because my mind has his picture juuuuuust right.  LOL  Now I see he does the voice for the other 2 books…….YES is all I can say.

So this is my first Lacey book….yeah yeah I know late to the party like always but ya know what can I say. I have only known her 5 years *Face Palm*

I gotta say I loved the dynamic of quiet and shy but sassy Marissa with Rhenn.  Rhenn is all playa playa who falls for the women who embodies his exact opposite type…ya know, she isn’t an easy whore.  LOL

Marissa is devastated by her family’s business/home fire and is lost because what will they do.  When her long lost family enters the picture, she gets connected to Rhenn who will be doing the family a favor and wiring the house for them.

When Rhenn shows up, he is stunned stupid at the beautiful women he sees but knows she isn’t “his type” and a quick roll won’t be something she is interested in.  When, after getting to know him, she proposes Friends with Benefits while he is in town….he flips out.

I loved seeing them fall but fear telling the other.  They both want more but she fears she isn’t good enough and he is ashamed of his past.  When the two weeks is up and they part, I was a little bit weepy and wanted to kick Rhenn in the balls.

The end of the story is perfect and totally swoon worthy.

I gotta say Emma and Orville KILLED ME in this story.  Marissa’s long-lost aunt and uncle were to inappropriately funny in this book.  I can’t wait for more of them in the rest of the books.  I am kinda giving brother Samuel a look over because I just know the right women or even man could make that anal-retentive ass crumble.  But first up is sexy diva Harper.  I can’t wait to see who tames this wild child!!

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.

Our relationship was toxic.

Intense.

Brutal.

When she slipped out of my hotel room, I made it my mission to have her back in my bed.

She ran.

I chased.

Before us by JM Walker

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

Holy Hells Bells!!

Jaron Mercer is so much like his father, Greyson, in so many ways!!

Piper!! Holy shit did I fall in love with her like I did her parents, Max and Dale!!

If this story is any indication of how the rest of the kid’s books will be, we are going to be in for a hell of a good read!!

Jaron and Piper’s story is only the beginning and you get to meet them in the Wanted anthology. They have some serious issues of loving each other for a long time but never really acting on the feelings until Paris. The two of them have finally lit that fuse and now they can’t stop what is meant to be.
This is a short and quick story, but it leaves me LONGING for the rest because trust me friends, this book is JUST the beginning of their long love story!!!

Goodreads


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

I love this series!!!  I have been waiting for Decker’s book because he just kinda called to me in the last book.

Decker is a hard nut to crack. Given his history with love and loss you can totally understand why he fights his feelings for Nurse Emma.  He does not want to go through that again.  Emma is the sweet but sassy spitfire who will not be bossed around by Decker.  I love her fire and tenacity when it comes to telling this man what is what.

The story of Decker, Ace and Emma having a love triangle was something I didn’t see but then I wonder HRMMM About Ace and who his mate might be!!!?????  I am hoping he is the next book???  But maybe it is Mr. Mysterious Wolfe or even Shade.  Either way, I am down the read it!!

I loved the gifts that we soon learn Emma has.  I think that is one of the things I love about this story.  The women are just as essential as the men in solving the Red Plague.  The gits the women are given when they become mated are perfect for the male but for helping the survivors.  Emma’s gift was pretty cool plus I loved the addition of Jag to help Emma.

This series is always changing and throwing new twists in which make everything so much more insane in the post apocalypse world.

Award winning and bestselling author Valerie Twombly grew up watching Dark Shadows over her mother’s shoulder, and from there her love of the fanged creatures blossomed. Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper.

When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German Shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.
