Ashes: Book One in the River Ash Pack

Cordelia has never known anything but the safety of her fathers guarded compound where she’s lived her entire life. A life that, as the alphas daughter, has always been a privileged one, albeit an incredibly sheltered one.
Until one night, life as she knows it, is flipped entirely upside down when she’s promised to another alpha in order to buy safety for her father’s pack. This doesn’t exactly sit well for Cordelia seeing as she has different plans for her life, even if she doesn’t know what those plans are just yet. Out of fear of what she doesn’t want her life to become, she does the unthinkable and tells her father the one thing he’ll never tolerate from anyone in his pack, especially not his daughter. She tells him no.
As a result, Cordelia learns just what kind of depraved man and alpha her father is and is left a broken, bleeding mess because of it.
After finding kindness and compassion from two strange men who show up at the compound and help her when she is no longer capable of helping herself, Cordelia does the only thing she thinks she can do in order to survive and not be stuck in a world of abuse and misery.
She runs.
Unfortunately for Cordelia, she doesn’t make it very far before she finds herself in trouble again and at the mercy of another male with alpha tendencies. This alpha also comes with a brother by blood and one by choice.
The problem is, Cordelia’s not so sure she could ever find a place in a pack again after everything she’s survived. She won’t have long to figure it out though because, no matter the cost, her father is determined to find her and bring her home.

Warning – Due to certain sensitive sexual subject matter and abusive situations, this book may contain triggers for some people.
It’s also a Reverse Harem book.


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

Jesus lemme get my head straight after reading this book.  If there are a few things you need to know about Mary and her stories here they are…..Her men love FIERCE, Her Women are NOT WEAK, The chemistry is crazy in all the right places, and there will be blood…LOL …but I am serious!!

Now if you read the trigger warning I will say it’s not AS ROUGH of a scene as I was expecting or have read in the past but friends, its hard.  Its hard because how can someone who should love and protect you, do that to you!!  Its also quickly done and done well so we feel for Cordelia, but mainly so we can understand the shape that Cal and Luca find her in…it was bad…….

Cal, Luca and Darius……they are all so special to Cordelia for their own reasons, but this book is owned by Darius.  Dude, he was so scary and then so sweet but so fierce.  I mean I don’t think I knew how menacing he was until we see him with his old pack….dang he was hawt!!!

Cal and Luca long for their time for Cordelia but understand and show true patience to be with their girl because make no bones about it, SHE. IS. THEIR. GIRL!

Seeing the story of the impending war due to everything that plays out in the book is making me on edge because the 4 of them need to be on the same page to stick together and to make sure no one feels left out of this unusual mating!!

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

Twinsie Angie’s Review of The King’s Courtesan HERE

#ReleaseDay – ALL WE WERE by Elisabeth Grace & Michelle Lynn



Will I ever stop hurting the one person who’s never hurt me?

I’ve done things I can never undo.

No matter how much I wish I could, sometimes the wounds I inflict are too deep, too catastrophic, too septic to heal.

As I look into the eyes of the only man I’ve ever loved I know I’ve gone too far. I’ve finally crossed the line.

Even if he knew my reason for doing this, he’d never forgive me.

He always puts my needs before his own.

Now it’s my turn to protect him.

None of that matters though because the betrayal and disgust in his eyes comes from deep within his soul. There’s no coming back from this.

He will forever be tormented by what he’s seen, and he will never forgive me.

The last fragment of my heart to hold out hope that we’d share a future, withers and dies.









Coming face-to-face with my past changes EVERYTHING.

I’m at the top of my game. All my struggles have finally paid off. Life should be great.

I mean, life is great.

Except for the fact that I can’t stop thinking of her. The woman who mangled my heart into a bloody pulp and never looked back.

If I could free myself of our shared memories, my future would be golden.

There’s only one way to move on—I have to confront the past, so I can move into the next chapter of my life in peace. Which means confronting her for the final time.

I had no idea that knocking on her door that day would turn my life upside down.

She currently lives outside Toronto, Canada with her hubby and two small children. Life is busy, but never too busy for a good story and to share her love of reading and writing with others.

#WOTR19 #AuthorSpotlights – Daryl Banner

Daryl Banner

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hi! I’m Daryl Banner, and I’m an author of M/M and new adult romance, post-apocalyptic fantasy, and dystopian fiction. I’m also a composer, avid gamer, and LOVE to play any piano I see. I sometimes go live on my Facebook author page just to play the piano, chat with my readers, and goof off =)

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

I feel the most grounded when I write in the comfort of my home. I can’t eat while I write!

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I love meeting people and socializing and just being a silly human being with no pressure. I look at signings sometimes as vacations from my writing work!

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

I would love to meet JK Rowling and Chuck Palahniuk. They both have deeply inspired me in very, very different ways. JK Rowling has such a delicate way with story, character, and emotion that both makes it feel so purposeful and yet totally effortless. Chuck Palahniuk has this brilliantly diabolical way of yanking out the very worst (and the very best) out of the human spirit and putting it on display like some grotesque piece of art. I love them both.

What author would you love to write with?

I think it would be fascinating (and a little terrifying – and inspiring!) to write with George R R Martin. Though, if we were to collaborate, I’m afraid we wouldn’t release something for 10 years. But I’d like to think it’d be well worth the wait!

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Nothing emotionally quite compares to the night I finished writing the final book in my Beautiful Dead trilogy. It was the first series I “finished” (though there is a second trilogy I’m writing now that follow the original trilogy), and I had such a deep mixture of sadness and pride for having completed something. I remember the night vividly. I remember the music I was listening to. I remember how “complete” I felt inside. I remember lots of tears, but also smiles. Whenever I get lost in a book or get frustrated with the progress of another, I always think back to that moment, and it keeps me going.

Twinsie Angie’s Review of Read My Lips, A College Obsession Romance Book #1 HERE


#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review #SpinOff #SeriesStarter #Paranormal – Nicole, The Mates Book #1 by Teresa Gabelman

Nicole (The Mate Series) Book #1

Nicole Callahan, mate to fierce and brooding VC Warrior Damon DeMasters, has been trying to find her place in his world. Without a doubt, it’s been interesting, but she believes there’s a lot more she can offer the children she spent so much of her human life fighting for.

The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.


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

WHAT!!!!  OMG THIS BOOK!!!  I am so excited for this series.  When Teresa told us she was thinking about it, I flipped my SHIT!!  I mean we fall in love with these ladies in their stories but then we don’t get to see them as much because the guys get all the action….damn Cock Club right Jill!!??  So, to SEE the ladies all banding together to help in their own way, was amazing!!

Damon and Nicole have been through so much but Nicole always wonders and get stuck in her head….maybe she isn’t enough or the right person for her strong, decapitating heads specialist Alpha warrior, Damon.

I loved seeing her return to her roots and essentially where it all began…….Damon and Nicole both are so confused because they want the best for their mate and their relationship, but the changes are starting to cause some fraying to not only their relationship but also a few others…like say My Alpha Jared.  I am about to nut punch him hardcore…what’s up!!????

I love that no matter what series or cross over series you read with the Protectors in it, the story line is FRESH and the villains are super evil.  I mean the bad guy from the Mates series is also connected to the bad guy in the main series buuuut slightly different.

If you love Teresa and her books then TRUST ME, you will need this book to add to your collection of the rest of her amazing books.

Teresa Gabelman is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the ‘Protectors Series’. When not writing about sexy alpha vampires and the women who drive them crazy she can be found on a lake with a fishing pole/Kindle, at a MMA event or spending a fun evening with family.

Being a full-time writer has allowed Teresa to connect more with readers which is what she loves most about writing. If you find the time she would love to hear from you!


#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Paranormal #shifters #MMA #Brothers – Bantamweight (Hallow Brothers Book 5) by Tricia Andersen

Bantamweight (Hallow Brothers Book 5)

Abraham Hallow would do just about anything to get out from under his oldest brother, Josiah’s, thumb. That includes performing as the Luchador in the local semi-professional wrestling circuit. He gets more than he bargained for when he hooks up with a woman with multicolored hair. The draw to her is undeniable. He wakes up the following morning with the ancient mark of his ancestors, mating him to the mystery woman he met the night before.
It was a simple mission—find the infamous Hallow brothers, kill them, and bring back the amulet. Kai’s plans get derailed after one night of hot, crazy sex with a mask wrestler. When she finds out the wrestler was none other than Abraham Hallow, the youngest of the Hallow brothers, she is exiled from the mermaid kingdom. Yet the orders from her king still stand. Can she deny her ever-growing love for Abraham, or will she fulfill her duties of killing him?



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

Man, IF Josiah hadn’t claimed my heart I think Abe could have been my favorite.

This book has a lot of new information coming our way as to some other supernatural beings in the world like…MERPEOPLE!!  Yup mermaids are real peps!!  Annnd it seems Abe has himself a hot little mermaid named Kai.

Abe is really annoyed at all the “baby brother” cracks.  He wants them to realize he is a 21-year-old adult.  He knows there is a lot happening, but it makes him nuts the brothers feel the need to keep things from him.  This is part of why he is revolting and fighting under cover.

Kai is tired of being “owned”.  She can’t imagine what it’s like to be free.  Between her two “bosses” she can’t do anything for herself.  But she lives in a constant threat of loss of life from these people.  When she is drawn to a human boxer one night she is floored by this, but she goes with it.  This is a decision she is making all for her.  Little does she know what that one little act of freedom will encompass……the mating mark.

Kai is pulled in so many ways and is so confused because she takes the mating mark as one of property and being owned.  Abe has a lot to teach his little mate, but his true and unselfish love is one that shows her what real family is all about.  Seeing Abe stand up to his family for his mate melted me and Kai.

There are more things the Hallow family learn and more spells to be broken.  It seems everyone is coming for the family.  However, their love and bonds will help to keep them safe until they finally end this war.


Back off! Abraham is mine!!! LOL! Abe is the baby of the Hallows and the brothers are more overprotective of him since there are so many more magical beings coming to the surface. Abe is dying to get out and be his own person/wolf. The brothers have no idea but he has been hiding as the Luchador. A completely masked wrestler that no one knows the identity to but Abe. After a fight he is drawn to Kai, the beauty with the multi colored hair. Kai is drawn to him as well and then one thing leads to another and things happen (*wags eyebrows*). She finds out that he is a Hallow and her orders still stand to kill them all. The only problem….well, they are mated. These two are so stubborn and so hard headed that the push and pull between them gets hotter every time they collide. Now we have a feud between the Mer-People and the Hallows. Everyone is still after the Heka and momma’s amulet. What is one more problem? Oh yeah, Loch. Abe is slotted to fight Loch with whom Kai had already been promised to. No matter how many different magical elements and beings we get with this series they are all placed in the perfect place and flows extremely smooth. All the brothers and their mates still play integral parts in Abe’s story. This particular story really had my emotions running on high the entire time. I wasn’t sure if Kai was dying at one point, if Kai is going to go through and kill the Hallows, if the Heka and amulet are truly safe….Bantamweight has so many twists that I never really knew how the story was going to end. Rest assured, this is one of my favorites of the series! I was never able to guess the next move and it really kept me on my toes. The series is a must read!

Nuriel, Captivate Box Set, by Nikki Landis

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

This book is totally something new and fresh in my reading mind.  I loved the way the story unfolds and the backstory of Nuriel.  Seeing the history of Angles and Demons….super cool for me anyway.

This book is all about Nuriel, who we know is an angel annnnnd something else but what???   We get to understand the “world” she is living and working in plus see her suitors….yes and they sure are a mixed bag of yummy……a traditionally good alpha and 3 anti-heros….what girl wouldn’t be happy with that situation???  LOL

I loved the set up of the story and knowing we have a lot more to come makes me even happier.  I mean Nuriel has a whole lot more instore for her with dealing with Hell and Heaven. I am going to guess a lot of trouble dealing with the men in her life too.  The chemistry was insane between the characters!!

Considering this was a novella to get your interest peaked in the story, I think the author did a great job.  It was very action packed but the details were never skimmed on IMO to jump start the series.

#WOTR19 #ThrowbackReview #paranormal – Baiting a Berserker by Savannah Verte

Baiting a Berserker (Paranormal Dating Agency Kindle Worlds)

Addian Hevir doesn’t want a mate, he needs one…to save his clan, and himself before the beast within consumes what’s left of his humanity. As a berserker, it’s only a matter of time before one, or both happen. Time is perilously short.
Fynn Barrow has had more than her share of Mr. Wrongs. A strong, independent Mer-woman, she’s not going to be content with just any man. She needs to be wanted by one who can meet her challenges in return. She’s not interested in playing the damsel in distress, or the dutiful housewife, to anyone.
Gerri confidently pairs them, but it only takes one meeting for them both to have doubts. Can two dominant personalities find the balance to come together before others interfere and send one to their death, and the other back to square one? Or, will it take the imminent threat to drive them where they need to be?


I purchased this book.

I have had the pleasure of knowing this author for a few years and was like I NEED TO READ HER…so I scrolled through her Goodreads list of books and this book just jumped out at me. I love Paranormal and I Love Shifters sooooo yup I one clicked it and jumped in.  I sat on my butt and devoured the book in one sitting.

I have not read a mermaid book, so I was excited to read about Flynn and the Lore in regard to mermaids.  I have read about a Berserker or two in paranormal books previously but something about Addain I liked.  I think the initial dinner failure was so awkward that I loved it…weird right???  Who loves to read that?  Oh, just me!!  LOL

Like Addain I think Mermaids are cute little sea creatures but hearing all about Mermaids and then seeing them in action…YIKES New found respect.  Flynn is a bad a$$ Lady who will protect what is hers and Addain is ALL Hers!!

Berserkers are pretty intense people.  Addain is not initially attracted to Flynn until he sees Her strength and command in situations.  Then he realized that maybe, just maybe, this mermaid can handle him and his clan.  Ya see, Addian needs to find a mate and find one soon or he will lose his clan to people trying to overthrow him.  The couple meet through a specialized dating match maker for paranormal beings.

The reading of their journey to them meeting, getting to know one another, mating and then protecting Addains station in the clan is a quick read but I really did enjoy it.  I would love to see Fil get a book because I feel as though she will be a riot!!

A lifelong lover of words and reading, Savannah Verte hasn’t quite figured out what she wants to write when she grows up. Born and raised in the upper Midwest, Savannah’s gypsy spirit and never quit attitude keep her busy and seldom idle. For so many reasons, Savannah considers herself a ‘Contemporary Vagabond’ when it comes to writing and hopes that others find her diverse offerings as enjoyable to read as they are to write.

As the primary owner and driving force behind Eclectic Bard Books she considers herself immensely fortunate to see writing from varied perspectives as she endeavors to publish the authors rostered there. Working with other writers, Savannah gets to expand her horizons every day as someone brings a new idea to the table and the brainstorming begins. There is something addictive about the creative process for her and helping other authors embrace their dreams make hers a reality daily.

That’s the official Savannah, the unofficial version is just this: a girl who loves experiencing life with every twist and turn it takes. When she was born, she had such fine, light hair that her mother used to tape bows to her head so people would know she was a girl. She’s had a host of crazy unrelated jobs- everything from cake decorator, dry cleaner, and insurance agent to Emergency Room assistant, bartender, crime lab tech and bouncer. Savannah loves air hockey but completely sucks at it. She loves good jazz, good scotch, and antiques but also old rock, a quiet tea, and a tidy home. She’s completely technology impaired and can get it after she’s broken the computer or done it ass-backwards a few times… Thank Gods that there are some amazing meme creators that let her pilfer images or she’d be lost. Lime green is her color, the rhinoceros is her logo & philosophy, and she’s completely mad about seeing new authors try.
