#WOTR22 #Review – Creepy: A Post-apocalyptic Reverse Harem Romance (The Zombiepidemic Book 1)  by Morgan Jane Mitchell

Creepy: A Post-apocalyptic Reverse Harem Romance (The Zombiepidemic Book 1)

Welcome to Creepy, Louisiana, Population 1.
Sissy outlasted the Zombiepidemic, but when other survivors arrive, she finds herself with another dilemma, too many men to choose from. Sounds like a good problem to have if it weren’t that a parish over, her ex has become the king of a gang of savages called the Stayers. Dillon is hell bent on making her his. Can her new suitors save her from an old one or can she really have them all?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

There were many different aspects of this book that I thoroughly enjoyed. Sissy lives in Creepy and is the only resident. She has a routine for scavenging, stock piling, and keeping safe. Her ex has assured her that no one will mess with her but he has to give him some ‘Miss Mary’ in return. They have quite a past and the way he changed really has her messed up inside because she doesn’t understand it. She keeps him sated so he will keep his thugs away from her. Then one day, a new neighbor comes to town. But this neighbor is hawt! Then another! All of a sudden, it’s a party, LOL! There is a lot of tension and angst that is built up throughout the book with a good storyline. It really makes you think about what you would do if you were in the same situation and how you would handle it. I imagine that I would be a lot like Sissy. She is a great female lead for this story. The push and pull between her and her men is delicate but just blooming too. There is a lot more to develop on this level and I imagine it will explode. Now, I generally use books as my escape so I must say that the only thing I didn’t care for is that the handling of the Zombie pandemic was very similar to the handling of the Covid pandemic, and I am sort of over it. Other than that point (and it was not dwelled on long) the story was great and has me looking forward to the next in the series.

#WOTR22 #ReleaseDay #review – Accidental P*rnstar by Cindy Tanner

Accidental P*rnstar by [Cindy  Tanner]

My college career was going great…

Until it wasn’t.

I lost my job, scholarship, and apartment in a trifecta of crap luck.

The last thing I want to do is run back home to my parents with my tail tucked. As luck would have it, my old roommate, Mason Davis, has a compelling—if slightly unorthodox solution—to my financial dilemma.

His suggestion?

A live stream feed of me enjoying a little steamy fun with HIM. The smoking hot guy I’ve fantasized about countless times before.

Surely, a tenacious bookworm like me can figure out how to let go of her inhibitions for one night.

After all, going viral is a good thing… right?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Lawd ya’ll when Cindy showed me the title for this book I was cracking up.  I couldn’t wait to read it.  When she asked if I wanted an ARC…legit I jumped.  I am so glad I did.  This book has so many amazing lines and scenes.  I was giggling on my chair on the deck.  I legit gave the “Why are you looking at me” stare to my husband when he was all “Lets do something.”  UHM NO Jules and Mason are making a PORN!  LOL

SO Jules and Mason lived together with a snot and Mason moved out long before Jules.  She was all kinds of a mess because on top of losing her housing she needs a job.  She is at the club whichis never does and is drinking.  She makes a fool of herself a couple times and thankfully Noah is there for them.  LOL  Jules and Mason reconnect and he offers her a room in his condo.  Ya know the one he has also ready paid for.  Well the comedy of what happens just needs to be read but needless to say Jules is not about t move in when…again …she has zero place to go.

Jules moves in and then Mason tells her is secret…ya know he does ALLFANS>>>GASP!!  I know right!!  SO after a quick chat he says he would love to scene with her for a cool $5K.  When a girl is down a girl needs to do some drastic measures.

SO Mason and Jules start to blur the line between roommates/dating couple/work mates.  They have some misunderstanding, jealousy, miscommunication, and of course a dash of “You trying to steal my girl”!!

The story was perfect. It was a great read and for sure I want a book on Mel and Noah.

Growing up an only child in rural Indiana Cindy grew to rely on her imagination for entertainment. Starting at a young age she would read books to her animals and started telling her stories to anyone that would listen. Over the years her love of reading and telling stories grew into a career of her dreams. She likes to tell sincere stories with unexpected twists.

#Review – The Fisher Men X My Heart: Book 1 by Rebel Nicks O’Dey

The Fisher Men X My Heart

After the incident, four brothers vowed to love, but never date her.

Morgan made her chicken soup to feed her body and soul.
Connor taught her what love is during their weekly movie date.
Xander held her when the demons wouldn’t let her sleep.
Zack made her a badass who is no longer afraid of the dark.

The girl next door is coming home, all grown up, and ready to claim one of them. Has it been long enough?
Separating the girl who needed them, from the woman who wants just him, will make navigating a relationship through the hooks of the Fisher Family, and the mysteries that surround them, difficult at best.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Girls, I’m hooked! This is the first book I have read by this author but it most certainly won’t be the last! I need more of the Fisher Men in my life! I don’t normally get too into romance stories but this one, let me tell ya, is soooo much more! This isn’t your normal romance. There are some reverse harem aspects but nothing that crosses the line. Basically, these guys all protect her but have a pact to not date or claim her. They will do anything to make sure she is safe and protected. These boys were raised right! There is a trigger warning at the beginning of the book that the author outlines stupendously. She even has it marked in the book so that if you are uncomfortable, you can skip that part and not miss the story. The Fisher’s parents founded ‘Safe Space’ and help people that are victims of abuse or are in cult type situations. But when Kateri (the Fisher’s sister) and Samantha are assaulted, both need very different things. These boys are fixers and Samantha needed that. This book takes place after Samantha left for college and comes back to town as a woman. When she and the Fisher’s collide there is a different type of tension that grips your heart. I mean this will give you ALL the feels! I don’t really want to say a lot about the story because I don’t want to give anything away but you absolutely NEED to read this. There are quite a few characters that are very important to the story which is told from many of their points of view. The author did this seamlessly and it makes the story just that much better! This is an amazing story of self-discovery that is heart wrenching, panty melting, swoon worthy, but wholesome with a ton of the feels! Boy, I never thought I would put those words in a sentence together but this author, Rebel, you made me do it! Bravo! Can’t wait to put my hooks in the other Fisher Men!

Twisted Ink

Many women have fallen in love with the wrong men. I’m not the first. Hell, history is full of them.

Oh, I’m far from alone. Now, I didn’t fall for one of America’s most notorious serial killers but still… Being in love with Jericho Fox, my mother’s ex-boyfriend, has doom written all over it.

Eat your heart out, Juliet Capulet.

Prolific Works

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I received this book from Prolific Works.

Love me some Jericho! And if I was in Eurydice’s shoes, I think I would have done the same thing!

“…fairy tales are for books in the public library, not for kids south of the train tracks.”

I have no clue how Eurydice’s mother and Jericho ended up together because momma is a hot mess…like gone off the rails of the crazy train mess. Well, Jericho wizened up and left (thank the gods) but he kept in touch with kids. He noticed an art talent that they had and tried to cultivate it. Well her brother followed in her mother’s footsteps but Eurydice keeps on keepin’ on and Jericho mentors her at his tattoo shop, and ultimately gives her a job. These two have been close and no one can come between them. But slowly things between them become “more than friends”. They both can feel this tension and have no idea how to handle it. But when that line is crossed…fireworks explode! This is a very well written story with the perfect amount of tension and angst all leading up to the grand finale of awesomeness. The only thing that I didn’t like about this is the fact that it ended! I so hope that this story continues…fingers crossed!

#BookPromo Until I Met Her (Emma Fern #1) by Natalie Barelli

She should never have said ‘yes’…

When Beatrice said she wanted to publish her next novel under Emma’s name, Emma couldn’t believe it. Why on earth would Beatrice Johnson Greene, the famous crime writer, not want to publish her new book as herself?

This time, Beatrice explained, she wanted to write something different, and publish it as an unknown author. She was too famous—and she needed Emma’s help.

After everything Beatrice had done for her, Emma could hardly refuse. But what was meant to be a favour has turned into a betrayal, and now Emma has done something terrible, something shocking, and the consequences are terrifying…

I’m not going to review this book because I do think you should go in blind. If you can help it, I also suggest not reading the blurb. I will tell you though that this book is about a regular woman who ends up being a ghost writer for her favourite author and well…you’ll have to read to find out what happens.y

#wotr #attendingauthor #standalone #partofaseries Perfect Rumor ( Mason Creek 22) by C.A. Harms 

Leo Reid has always had a thing for the town gossip columnist, but Tate Michaels is one hard woman to get to know. That doesn’t stop Leo from doing all he can to chip away at the edges. Little by little, day by day, she slowly lets him in.

But as life would have it, the tables have turned and now, the columnist is the focus of all the town’s gossip and rumors.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Tate is the leading lady to get the gossip out in the town of Mason Creek. That was one way she could control how much was said about her father the town drunk not that it was a secret her mother just tried hard to make sure that they kept the fake happy family picture in view. But it was wearing on Tate and that wasn’t the only thing Leo was finally wearing her down. He could handle her sass and attitude and he loved every minute of it. He wasn’t gonna let her get away Leo liked her since high school and that’s something you just gotta hold on to. But when her secrets of how much she really deals with gets out will Leo really be able to handle all of it or will he continue to love her from a far, or will her perfect rumor pick up and run. This was amazing I loved getting to feel everything Tate has going on and why she is the way she is I just love it…and Leo’s property ugh sounds like a dream come true.

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

#WOTR22 #releaseday – Drinking Deep by Dylann Crush

Drinking Deep (Whiskey Wars Book 1) by [Dylann Crush]

A generations-old family feud might ruin a couple’s last chance at love…and tear apart the oldest whiskey distillery in Tennessee in the process.

Danica:
I need a win. My scumbag ex-boss is trying to drag my reputation through the mud. If I can land my first client, I might be able to get my marketing business off the ground. But when I show up for my first meeting with the owners of a distillery, the gorgeous guy at the end of the table looks an awful lot like the one-night stand I ghosted. So I do what any hot mess in heels would do… pretend like we’ve never met.

Cole:
The Hatfields and McCoys have nothing on the feud my family’s got going. We’ve been fighting with the Stewarts longer than anyone in Beaver Bluff can remember. Which sucks since we happen to co-own the largest whiskey distillery in Tennessee. Now they’ve brought in a marketing consultant to switch things up. If I can’t fight my attraction to the woman with curves like a back mountain road, she could ruin me.

Lose yourself in the richly crafted world of Beaver Bluff, Tennessee where the whiskey flows freely and love is only ever a few pages away.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I love when a new series is started by an author I enjoy.  When I got an email asking if I wanted the ARC I jumped and couldn’t find time fast enough the read it.  SO, on a LONG car ride home, I dove in.  LAWD this book was all you can want and more!!

Cole is siting at the bar one night when he eyes and starts flirting with a beautiful woman.  She just so happens to want lessons on whiskey.  The man does part own a whiskey distillery so of course he teaches the lady….and then does a bit more with the lady. *Wink*

Danica is scared to death about her new job opportunity with her old college friend.  She needs a fresh start, and this will be the perfect place for her.  She is at her hotel when he sees the hottest guy in the world.  What can hurt to have smidge of tension relief at his hands right???  Hot wall sex is always the cure, right??  LOL

The following day Danica rolls in to work and that is when she and Cole are face to face on opposite sides of the table.  But hey they are adults.  They can pretend nothing happened. They can be friends with benefits…wait NO friends with benefits…just friends!!!

This book had me turning those pages because the chemistry was off the charts.  These two are so attracted to each other and at the same time get so infuriated at the other.  They go to say, “Stop this” and end of groping each other in the hallway.  LOL

For real, I enjoyed the series started and ant wait for more. Cole and Danica were a great read.

Dylann Crush writes contemporary romance with sizzle and sass. A romantic at heart, she loves her heroines spunky and her heroes super sexy. When she’s not dreaming up steamy storylines, she can be found sipping a margarita and searching for the best Tex-Mex food in Minnesota.

Although she grew up in Texas, she currently lives in a suburb of Minneapolis/St. Paul with her unflappable husband, three energetic kids, a clumsy Great Dane, a rescue mutt and a very chill cat. She loves to connect with readers, other authors and fans of tequila. You can find her at www.dylanncrush.com.

#WOTR22 #Review – The Seer (The Aberration Book 3) by Michel Prince

The Seer (The Aberration Book 3) by [Michel Prince]

Since Aberrations started appearing across the globe, the world was trapped in a communal nightmare. Children tossed away, instead of nurtured. Their gifts only seen as dangers, not a blessing, all hitting the teenagers right as they are trying to come into themselves.

At some point we all get lost in our dreams of what will be or what could be, but for Peyton Lark, trying to find the right path in his visions has him slipping into a delirium of insanity. The Seer among those who’ve hidden away on an island knows when visions increase, they are closing in on becoming reality.

While he has the ability to see danger coming, it doesn’t mean he can find the path to avoid it. With his other half, his love Claire Lawrence, being taken from him over and over in painful nightmares his main focus turns to saving her, with the rest a distant second. But the path isn’t changing no matter how much he tries to manipulate the dream.

Can Peyton find the way to save those around them from a weapon created for their complete annihilation? Or will he at least be able to spin the dream to save the one person who anchors him fully?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I couldn’t wait for Peyton’s story and I am so glad we finally have it! Peyton came from a good home with good parents but because of his birthdate, was sent to an aberration camp where he endured the unthinkable. Once he was able to escape, he found his place with others like him in Satori. They have all, Aberrations and Harveys (the normal), had to run as they are now being hunted by an Aberration Elder that is the current president. Peyton is a computer whiz and incredibly smart but his greatest strength is also his weakness. He is a seer and gets visions of the future. The only problem is that the future is always changing. He sees the same nightmare over and over where Clair is ripped away from him and no matter what he does or how hard he tries; he cannot manipulate anything to make this future change. He is finding that he is starting to blame himself but also questioning who he can trust. He feels like he is literally going insane. These hunters will never stop and finally Peyton has a breakthrough. He is thinking about things the wrong way. He needs to have EVERYONE work together. No prejudices and social classes. No more what ifs plaguing him to the point of madness. The time has come to band together and get ready for the inevitable. However, when the inevitable comes, another crazy twist comes at us and brings an entirely new type of torture to endure and get through. This story is an incredibly well written YA that can definitely get us adults on edge and turning the pages like crazy. I highly recommend this series and cannot wait for the next installment!

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Where oh where do i begin this is the beginning of one of my favorite series, Kendall had a rough childhood having been taken from her parents in a good way she went to live with her nana and gramps which she loved because she knew she was safe. When Nana got sick they had to move into a trailer and there she met the VanPelts Brian, Casey and Will they became best friends and those 3 boys became very protective over Kendall. They keep close through out the years and plan to move to California after Kendall and Will graduate and live happily ever after. Well until a fateful night that took Kendalls future from her and left her empty and heartbroken. Ugh this book is exactly what i needed and broke my heart all over again. But to have Brian meet a few members of the quad was the perfect scene of past and future being together without knowing. Ugh i need so much more. 

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at a state park.
