#WOTR19 – #Review – Meant to Be: a Perfect Fit short story by Alison Bliss


Meant to Be: a Perfect Fit short story


Alison Bliss returns with a novella in her popular Perfect Fit series. These laugh-out-loud romantic comedies feature curvaceous heroines finding love and convincing us that confident and sexy comes in all shapes and sizes.

“Fans of Jennifer Weiner will enjoy Bliss.”

Sidney Larson always thought dark-haired, blue-eyed Brett Carmichael was sinfully sexy, to say nothing of the muscular mechanic’s talent with his hands. But Sidney so didn’t have time for Brett’s overbearing tendencies when they were together so she broke things off. Now a chance encounter brings Brett back into her life, and Sidney can’t help but notice intriguing changes in her ex. So what’s stopping her from revisiting their scorching-hot chemistry?

Since Sidney dumped him, Brett’s made major life adjustments, thanks to therapy and a long, hard look at himself. Sure, he’s still intense but he knows how to focus his energy on his career, not on trying to control a fantastic woman like Sidney. Brett finds the sweet, generous brunette more seductive than ever, but now that he’s finally worthy of her, will she be willing to give him a second chance?




Cute and hilarious quick read! I have not read the series but was able to appreciate the story completely. Brett and Sidney were in a relationship but Brett was very overbearing and Sidney had to break it off. Brett has been trying to work through his “issues” and has a business proposition come up that could be really good for him. On his way he “runs” into Sidney and he feels the sparks fly….but so does she. It has been almost a year and they have gone to great lengths to avoid each other. As they story goes on they get to know each other again and realize that love is love and maybe they were meant to be. The story is cute and lovely. It’s very relate-able to its readers and if you give it a try you won’t be able to help but love them.

#Review – Everyone In L.A. Is An Asshole by Sarah Fuller

Everyone In LA Is An Asshole


LA is a beast. A city that swallows most with its glamour and glitz.

Not Sarah Fuller though.

Stubborn and relentless, Sarah refuses to be changed by her surroundings. Often, she takes a cynical approach, judging the world around her, though never taking anything too seriously.

Thrown back into the dating arena in her late thirties, Sarah encounters brand new challenges.

Readers will laugh out loud at the adventures and mishaps this sassy protagonist gets herself into. She explores LA life, seeing it through her unique lens.

Hair extensions, goat yoga, socialites and all the strangeness that comes out of LA weave together in this crazy, episodic adventure.

Can you handle the absurdities? 

Scroll back up and hit the ‘Read Now’ or ‘Buy’ button and laugh until you can’t see.

Fans of Chelsea Handler and Sex in the City will love Everyone in LA is an Asshole, a series that doesn’t hold back and says what we’re all secretly thinking.   




If you are even thinking about reading this, just stop and buy the damned book! It is a non-stop ride of hilarity, dripping with sarcasm and full of craziness!  Being in your 30’s and being thrust back into the dating game and doing it while you are a single mom is stressful to say the least. Sarah takes us through her experiences and give you insight as to all the insane things that people are out there doing and how it reflects back on you. There are a ton of funny and funky characters that will keep you hooked through the entire book. Each chapter is a different part of Sarah’s life and each chapter opens a new perspective. She not only makes fun of others but completes this by making fun of herself as well. From her old life knocking at the door, her new life calling on the phone, red-heads she can’t shake, and online dating in the world of LA, she makes you relate to her and the absurdity of life itself. If you need a book to sit down and have some laugh out loud fun, then this is the one for you!

#WOTR19 #AuthorSpotlights -Dahlia Donovan

Dahlia Donovan

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

I wrote my first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. I prefers irreverent humour and unconventional (read awkward) characters. I’m autistic. My life wouldn’t be complete without my husband and my massive collection of books, mugs, and video games.

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

]Home, where I can control my environment. I’m autistic so that’s REALLY important to me. I don’t snack much when I write. I do drink tea. A lot of tea. All the tea.

What author would you love to write with?

None. I would be a pain in the ass to write with. True story.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Meeting my publisher and editor. They both happen to be from Australia but I was lucky enough to meet them at a convention a year or two ago. They keep me sane through writing. And it’s my favourite moment as an author.

#WOTR19 #AuthorSpotlights – A.D. Ellis

A.D.  Ellis

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

A.D. Ellis
I’m an Indiana girl born and raised. I have a teen girl and tween boy. Most of my time is spent teaching alternative education in the inner-city of Indianapolis. I love to write, read, and crochet. I’ve been binge watching Glee and American Horror Story recently. I’m in love with pizza, tea, pulled pork, chocolate, and wine with friends.

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

If I’m at home, I’m likely on the couch with a blanket, my laptop, earbuds in, and some hot tea.
If I’m feeling unfocused, I’ll go to Starbucks for a chai tea latte and vanilla scones so I can blast music in my ears at a corner table and get some words down.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting readers is amazing. It’s so fun to hear from people who love my stories as much as I do. And meeting new readers is great because they get to find stories that may end up being their favorite.
And spending time with author buddies, meeting new author friends, just the feeling of fun and relaxation.

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

I don’t really have one. I feel like I’ve been lucky to meet so many of the authors I love to read. There are plenty I’d be thrilled to meet, but no ONE author is on my list. (I did recently meet a unicorn author for Jillian Jacobs 🙂 He was her unicorn author AND he writes about a unicorn. Hahahahaha…. That was fun because I didn’t have to be nervous, I was just like, “Hey, my friend loves you and would kill me if I didn’t get you to sign this and take a picture.” Fun times.)

What author would you love to write with?

I’m actually doing my first collab project with Declan Rhodes right now and it’s been tons of fun. I’d be open to writing with almost anyone as long as we meshed well. We wouldn’t have to write exactly the same, that would be boring. But our styles should correlate. And we’d have to have patience and flexibility.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

There are SOOOO many, I can’t pick just one. All the signings, meeting readers, spending time with friends, writing days with author buddies.
Actually, there are TWO best memories:
1) when I first started writing M/M, I needed help/research and a reader put me in contact with her son. That was in 2015 and he’s one of my very best friends to this day. We talk daily and plan trips together. He’s an amazing person and I’m so blessed and grateful to have him in my life.
2) At a signing in 2016, I saw this guy and there was truly something magical about him. I told him later that he lit up the room, made everyone want to be his friend, and had a general “fuck off” attitude at the same time. I didn’t understand the pull, but I was drawn to him and HAD to know him. As bad as it sounds, I sleuthed out who he was (I’m a damn good detective!) and as I was leaving the signing that day, I contacted him. So, yeah, it could have been taken as stalkerish and creepy, but luckily he didn’t see it that way (much) and he’s one of my very best friends to this day. We talk daily, take road trips, and he’s an incredibly important part of my life.
So, overall, my best memories are the ones that have brought dear friends into my life. Without this author journey, I wouldn’t have my author friends, my reader/blogger friends, or these two guys who are such important friends to me.

Twinsie Angie’s review of His Reluctant Cowboy HERE


#NewRelease #Review #MontgomeryInk Inked By Numbers: A Colorado Springs Bonus Romance by Carrie Ann Ryan

Kaylee knows art, friendship, and love. And because she’s known love, she wants nothing to do with it ever again. She likes her life just the way it is. Her art and her Brushes with Lushes classes keep her sane and happy.

Landon spends his days with numbers and financial spreadsheets. At night, he just wants to relax, but the only way he can do that is with a woman. But these days, not just any woman will do.

Kaylee and Landon do an excellent job of dancing around each other, but no matter how much desire burns between them or their own personal hang-ups, they’ll need to make a choice: life as they know it, or a life that could be so much more.

 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Ok my friends, for those of you who don’t know Kaylee and Landon have been circling around each other for a year.  They’re friends and have helped the Colorado Springs gang get their head together when need be and this little story gives us the why on the circling.  It is a sweet and lovely story of two friends realizing the relationship they thought they didn’t want, they truly did and didn’t consciously know it.

You also get to see a bit of their family life and learn what makes them ticked.  The artist and the money man, you wouldn’t think that they’d fit together but they truly do and it’s beautiful to see.  It’s a beautiful thing when two friends find love, its even more beautiful when they find it with each other.



Carrie Ann Ryan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary and paranormal romance. Her works include the Montgomery Ink, Redwood Pack, Talon Pack, and Gallagher Brothers series, which have sold over 2.0 million books worldwide. She started writing while in graduate school for her advanced degree in chemistry and hasn’t stopped since. Carrie Ann has written over fifty novels and novellas with more in the works. When she’s not writing about bearded tattooed men or alpha wolves that need to find their mates, she’s reading as much as she can and exploring the world of baking and gourmet cooking.


#REVIEW – Her Master’s Courtesan by Lily White

I am a Master.

You must know this fact to understand my story.

I capture women.

I break them down.

And I rebuild them.

If they are lucky, they are sold into the professional hands of another Master. If they are less fortunate, they are buried beneath the ground, never to be thought of again.

I lust for the control, I demand absolute submission and my body yearns to warp the minds of those I train.

Power is the only thing I’ll ever need and I am addicted to the feeling of ultimate control.

I am wealthy, good-looking, educated and charming.

And I am – in no way – a good man.

I do not want love.

I do not want kindness.

She thought she could change me by giving me the two things I knew I never wanted.

She was wrong.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

So I decided to re-read this series to get ready for the new one that just came out and I forgot how much I love Aiden. Although, he’s the biggest douche known to man, he actually does have a sweet side. Kind of. Just don’t tell him I told you that.

Rebecca and Aiden meet at an art gallery when she stumbles upon an erotic photo. Aiden woos her and not too long later, she wakes up and has no idea where she is. Well it all goes down hill from there. Or up hill? Eventually up hill. If it’s your thing.

One thing I love about Lily’s books, especially this series, she’s a Master of mind f**kery. Just when you think you know Aiden, the tables turn.

Rebecca thinks she can over power him, manipulate him into falling for her but she’s wrong. So so very wrong.

Now when this book first came out years ago, it was banned everywhere. It’s not for some. It’s actually not even for most but I personally love it. Once you get through all the torture and abuse, it’s about a man who meets a woman who cracks some part of him. What that part is, we don’t know yet but it’s cracked. And I can’t wait to find out what else Lily has in store for us.

#WOTR19 #AuthorSpotlights – Elissa Daye

Elissa Daye

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Elissa Daye. I live in Normal, but have always considered myself abnormal. I don’t fit inside any particular box, which is why I cross genres so frequently.

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

You can find me writing anywhere in my house with a table, legs covered in a blanket and feet warm and toasty in fluffy socks. What kind of food? More like caffeine. Nasty habit that I’m trying to break, but it keeps the muse awake.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting all the fans. I love when people come up to talk to me. The best days are the ones I don’t even have time to sit down. Then again, the after party with the readers is also fun!

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

Oooh, that’s tough. I think it’s a tie between Anne Rice and J.K. Rowling.

What author would you love to write with?

My cousin, Jordan Deen. Although we have written a book together, I miss writing with her as our lives have been traveling a warp speed in different directions.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Hearing how one of my books made someone throw it across the room. The ability to make someone have such a reaction to something I’ve written is an amazing feat. Being forgiven after the fact, was good too.

#WOTR19 #AuthorSpotlight – Krystle Able/A.K. Dickerson

Krystle Able

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Krystle Able and I am a multigenre author. I also write horror under the pen name A.K. Dickerson with my husband. I was born and still live in central Illinois and work as a freelance writer full time while also going to U of I to finish my BA in English. When I am not writing or working on school, all of my time is devoted to my three kids who are 11, 9 and 3. Our three year old is autistic and we are very involved in our local community through programs like SPICE and Marcfirst.

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

Panera, not so much a good but I love their Plum Hibiscus tea.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I am attending my first signing in May as an Author and WOTR will be my second! I have been several times as a reader however and my favorite thing would have to be just getting together with a room full of people who all love reading as much as I do. When you go to a signing event, you have something in common with every single person around you, it’s impossible to feel alone.

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

Tarryn Fisher and Colleen Hoover (I want to meet them together, they’re a package deal for me)

What author would you love to write with?

I am co-writing with RL Weeks this year which I am very excited about.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

This happened yesterday! A former professor of mine from ICC and a fellow horror author left an amazing review of my debut horror story and it made me feel validated for the first time, like, ok, maybe my writing is pretty ok after all!

#WOTR19 #AuthorSpotlights – Vivian Ward

Vivian Ward

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

\My name is Vivian Ward and I write forbidden, ménage, dark, and contemporary romance. I’ve been writing for almost a decade and it is my full-time job. Reading and writing have always been my passion, and I love creating stories based on our hidden desires, intimate relationships, and taboo subjects that most can’t fathom talking about or sharing with others. Aside from writing, I’m an avid reader of all books naughty, suspenseful, dark, and smutty. I’m also a mom, wife, taxi cab driver, chef, maid, laundry attendant, professional shopper, and a fur mom to two awesome dogs. When I have downtime–who am I kidding? There’s no such thing as downtime! No, seriously, when I do have a few spare moments, I like going to bookstores to hit up the romance, suspense, and reference sections. As much as I love reading stories, I think it’s also important to study writing and have several bookshelves dedicated to books about editing, plotting, story arcs, character arcs, and much more.

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

Oddly, I like writing in public places. I get a kick out of knowing what I’m writing and laugh at the fact that nobody around me would ever guess I’m writing about ménages or dirty romance. One of my favorite places to write is Starbucks. If I’m writing from home, I’m happy with any place that doesn’t have four kids screaming and fighting. LOL And there’s not any particular food or drink that must be present but I do have to have something to drink at all times. It doesn’t matter if it’s tea, water, soda, coffee, or something else.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I love meeting fellow authors but, even more than that, I love meeting readers! Without readers, I wouldn’t be where I am today. It’s so much fun to meet everyone, especially since majority of my time is spent at home, writing alone. The socialization is my favorite part because I’m naturally a people person and signings allow me to interact with everyone.

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

Tillie Cole. I’d love to meet her because I love her writing but I did get to meet Jamie McGuire, which I absolutely loved! I’d also like to meet Gillian Flynn. Okay, so I have more than one author that I’d like to meet but I’m only human so sue me. LOL It’s like opening a bag of chips, you can’t stop at one.

What author would you love to write with?

Honestly, several of my friends and I already write together and release special books for holidays and just for fun, and I love it. Sometimes the worlds are shared and sometimes they aren’t but it’s so much fun creating storylines and various ideas and then getting together to write them. For a co-write, I’d like to write with either Derek Masters (again) or Jillian Quinn. She’s one of my best friends and we bounce ideas off each other all the time.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

My favorite memory as an author so far would be the two different times that I earned orange bestseller tags and hit number one in multiple categories with two different titles.
