#WOTR21 #AttendingAuthor #MMRomance #AgeGap —Silver and Sage (Silver in the City #1) by: A.D. Ellis


Silver doesn’t have time for feelings or a relationship. Then Sage shows up.
Sage is Silver’s exact opposite, his renter, and his new employee. The kid is much too young and much too innocent.
There are a million reasons why Silver and Sage should never get together. And Silver plans to keep it that way.
Until all of those reasons go up in flames with one kiss.

Silver & Sage is a steamy, slow burn M/M age gap, opposites-attract romance between a shy, inexperienced nerd and an outgoing grump of a bar owner.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Bode, his twin brother, and their cousin are looking for a roommate. They hold interviews for the open room, trying to find a fit. Everyone thinks Sage would be the perfect roommate. Well, everyone except for Bode. He tries all he can to talk the others out of picking Sage. What is Bode’s aversion to Sage moving in? And will he win the roommate disagreement?

Silver and Sage is a cute May/December romance between a bitter, brooding, bar owner who is in so much denial about his feelings for a cute little geek who keeps to himself and is very confused as to why Bode is the way he is towards him.

I loved everything about these two and their oh so slow burn romance. As with all the books I’ve read by this author, it left me completely happy with the outcome but at the same time wanting the story to go on forever because the characters were just so loveable.

About A.D. Ellis

Escape into addictive, sexy, emotional romance.
A.D. Ellis is an Indiana girl, born and raised. She spends much of her time in central Indiana as an instructional coach/teacher in the inner city of Indianapolis, being a mom to two amazing school-aged children, and wondering how she and her husband of nearly two decades haven’t driven each other insane yet. A lot of her time is also devoted to phone call avoidance and her hatred of cooking.
She loves chocolate, wine, pizza, and naps along with reading and writing romance. These loves don’t leave much time for housework, much to the chagrin of her husband. Who would pick cleaning the house over a nap or a good book? She uses any extra time to increase her fluency in sarcasm.

#WOTR21 #AttendingAuthor #MMRomance #FriendsToLovers —Hearts Ablaze (Forged in the City book 1) by: A.D. Ellis


Chase Steele and Xander Copperfield are down on their luck, as similar as they are different, and ready for a love they didn’t even realize they’d been waiting on their whole lives.
With two gorgeous “tough guys” discovering and exploring their true selves, Hearts Ablaze is a steamy, slow-burn, friends-to-lovers, opposites attract, bisexual awakening romance.

*This is the first book in the Forged in the City series.*

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Chase and Xander’s paths crossed by chance one afternoon. Little did either of them know, that brief interaction would be the start of something remarkable.

A.d. Ellis has done it again, bringing another unlikely pair together. Two men who are complete opposites, yet completely perfect for one another.
I loved EVERYTHING about Chase and Xander. And the way she connected their lives to the lives of the Silver’s from her previous series was pretty terrific. As always, I’m highly anticipating her next release.

#WOTR21 #AttendingAuthor #LGBTQIA+ #FantasyRomance —What Blooms Beneath by: A.D. Ellis


Kellan considers himself lucky to have an adequate existence on earth where, in the year 2044, common citizens toil under the oppressive thumb of a corrupt and unscrupulous government. Kellan dreams of becoming part of the Department of Paranormal, Supernatural, and Fantasy Sciences, but his application is continually denied because he has no extra-sapien blood. Kellan’s simple reality shifts when Rhône unexpectedly enters his life.
Rhône, living in a camouflaged, underground village, never planned to get involved with an individual from the outer world. When Rhône and Kellan cross paths, there’s no denying the attraction and pull between them. But there’s something else, something more, just beneath the surface.
A hidden world and painful secrets are a potentially complicated blend. However, with Rhône by his side, enlightening details and unexplored powers provide Kellan with an opportunity for deep self-discovery. Will Kellan’s open and accepting heart allow for an extraordinary love to bloom? Or will the vast differences between Kellan and Rhône take root and strangle any hope for a flourishing future?
**What Blooms Beneath is an LGBT+ Fantasy Romance featuring a pansexual male and genderqueer intersex individual.**

Review by Twinsie Tenise

The book takes place on earth in the year 2044. It starts when Kellan meets someone named Rhone in the park. After their encounter, Kellan people watches for a week hoping to see Rhone again- he just can’t seem to get them out of his mind. It was beginning to seem like Rhone didn’t really exist.

I really enjoyed this book about love and acceptance. There are definitely lessons to be learned from it. Sometimes it may seem like its easier to walk away then to deal with the hurtful words and looks of others because society has a hard time dealing with things they consider different. But, you need to listen to your heart and ignore the negativity that may be lurking round you if you want find your happily ever after.

I can honestly say What Blooms Beneath was the very first LGBTQ fantasy book I have read. It was absolutely amazing and definitely set the bar high for any books I read from the same genre. I look forward to reading more of this genre, hopefully by the same author, in the future!

Review by Twinsie Tenise

I counted down the minutes to the release of Promises. I started the minute ot appeared on my Kindle. I kept telling myself, this is it, read slow- savor it. Easier said than done, I guess. I finished in a day. While I’m sad Sterling and Araneae’s story has come to an end, at the same time I am happy to have finally got the answers I have been seeking since book 1 in the series.
This book, actually the entire series consumed me. It was very well written and kept me on the edge of my seat till the end.

#Wotr21 #AttendingAuthor #SecondChanceRomance —Whisper Forever by: C.A. Harms

Recommended for Mature Audience

I wanted to forget him so many times. Erase the memories we shared and pretend he didn’t exist. It would have made his absence easier to accept.

Lucas Rivers broke my heart more than once.
In my world he was my guy, the one I’d grow old with and laugh with. But things aren’t that simple, and time changes everything.

That naive girl with dreams of happily-ever-afters was gone.
I didn’t need a man to complete me. I was enough—no, I was more than enough. I was strong and determined. I was Madelyn Emery, and never again would a boy break my heart.

But the moment Lucas returned after four years, acting like we could pick up where we left off, that strength inside me shifted. The more I tried to ignore his efforts, the harder he fought.

How can one simple word whispered by one man mean so very much?

“Forever.”

Goodreads

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Lucas and Madelyn, next door neighbors and best friends since forever- they are inseparable, if you see one of them, the other is sure to be close by. One would think their friendship would last forever but sometimes things don’t go as planned.

Fast forward 4 years after high school graduation. Lucas returns home from college. Lucas thinks he and Madelyn can just return to the way things once were but he is going to have to try pretty hard if he wants her to so much as give him the time of day.

Talk about a page turner! Whisper Forever had me captivated from page 1. I laughed, I found myself tearing up several times and outright crying at one point while yelling at my kindle.

This was a beautifully written story that I never wanted it to end. I have absolutely loved everything I have read by this author. 5 HUGE forever stars but only because they won’t let me rate higher than that.

#Standalone #AllTheFeels #UglyCry —Ryan’s Bed by: Tijan

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident.

I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed—her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should’ve left…
I didn’t. I didn’t jump out. I didn’t get embarrassed.
I relaxed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.

I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.

The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could’ve stayed forever, I would have.
He became my sanctuary.

Because—four hours earlier—my twin sister killed herself.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Every once in a while, you read a book, and when you finish it’s like the book left an imprint on your heart. You know the book will stay with you forever. You want to reread it immediately and have copies on hand in every single format because the book is on your top books of all time list! You feel like the 5 star rating system just isn’t fair, because some books deserve WAY more than 5 stars. Ryan’s Bed is THAT book for me. I can’t even begin to describe how amazing it was. An absolute must read! Thank you, Tijan, for writing such beautiful, memorable story.

#NewAdultRomance #AllTheFeels #UglyCry —A Five Minute Life by: Emma Scott

It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read.–T.M. Frazier, USA Today Bestselling author of King

Remember us…when I can’t.

Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.

A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.

Jim Whelan is on autopilot.

A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.

Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.

When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

I was told by a friend to read this book. I totally trust her recommendations so I went in blind. Nothing I say about this book could ever do it justice. Every once in a while you read a book unlike any other, with a storyline so unique it should be in a class of it’s own. That leaves you feeling like a 5 star rating system just isn’t fair- that the book deserves way more. A Five Minute Life was definitely that book for me.
I just finished and my first thought was – PHENOMENAL! Everyone needs to read this book. It’s a real page turner and will definitely stay with me. By far the best I’ve read this year. A Five Minute Life has ALL the FEELS- make sure you have the tissues handy- you are going to need them.

#Wotr21 #AttendingAuthor #MMRomance #EnemiesToLovers #PartofaSeries —Yearn(Remington Place book 4) by: A.D. Ellis



They’ve hated each other for years, but someone forgot to tell them there’s a fine line between love and hate.Khi Harris has spent his life trying to prove himself. After a disastrous relationship, all he needs is a little time to regain his footing. He has no desire to spend that time with an old enemy.Dre King has finally accepted his truth. A new home with family and friends is exactly what he needs as he begins a journey toward his dream. Khi waltzing back into Dre’s life is not part of the plan.The only thing Khi and Dre can agree on is they most definitely don’t want to be thrown together, but that’s precisely what they get. The line between hate and love is easily blurred, but these two men are determined to fight each other tooth and nail.**Yearn is a steamy, enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity M/M romance between two EMS workers who have hated each other for a decade. It’s the fourth and final book in the Remington Place series and can be read as a stand-alone, but is likely best enjoyed when read in order.**

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

As I read the other books in this series, I would get snippets of what was going on in the lives of everyone else who lives at Remington Place and I really anticipated getting to find out what was up with Khi and Dre’s story.

They both ended up at Remington Place for their own reasons and one would think maybe it was fate that brought them together again. However Khi doesn’t feel that way. While Dre wants to talk and maybe work through what happened in the past– Khi wants nothing to do with that conversation whatsoever.

Yearn is the 4th and final book in the Remington Place series. This is a forced proximity, enemies-to-lovers, open- your-eyes-and-get-your-head-out-of-the-past, male romance. I loved Khi and Dre and while I’m happy to have finally read their story, I’m really going to miss this series. This is a series of interconnected standalones that do not necessarily have to be read in order but I highly suggest it to get the FULL Remington Place experience.

#wotr21 #attendingauthor #MMRomance #agegap #partofaseries —Desire(Remington Place book 3) by: A.D. Ellis


It’s probably a bad idea to get involved with a much younger guy, but there’s no way around this crazy connection.

Cruz Adams has finally found a soft place to land. He’s content with life and not looking for anything more. So, of course, he finds himself falling down the “more” rabbit hole with a guy fifteen-years his junior.
Logan Miles escaped a horrific past, but he’s yet to find his safe place. When he ends up in a dangerous situation, he can’t help but see Cruz as his knight in shining armor. But is Logan ready for what Cruz has to offer?
Will Cruz be able to give Logan what he needs while they navigate their new relationship? Or will they lose the chance at happiness before it even begins?

**Desire is a steamy, age-gap, hurt/comfort M/M romance featuring a heart-of-gold mechanic and a twink who’s a lot stronger than he realizes. It’s the third book in the Remington Place series and can be read as a stand-alone, but is likely best enjoyed when read in order.Please note: This story has mention of sex trafficking and sexual abuse.**

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Cruz and Logan were both dealt a pretty crummy hand in life. And just like everyone else who has stepped through the doors of 69069 Remington Way, they both found Bev and her boarding house, Remington Place, when they needed it the most.

This story was a very emotional read for me. I found myself tearing up more than once. I loved these two very much and just wanted them both to get a happily ever after.

Desire is book 3 of 4 in the Remington Place series. They are all interconnected standalones but I highly recommend starting from the beginning so you can meet the entire crew.  All of the books in the series are fantastic!

While secretly still longing for Danny O’Brien, the once hoodlum boy who stole her heart when she was just a girl, Bexley Walker tries to move on, marrying and focusing on her new life.

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Whoa! That was quite a rollercoaster of a trilogy. I was constantly guessing trying to figure out what would happen next and was constantly surprised by things I didn’t see coming. This is book 3 in Danny aka Bones and Bexley story. The other 2 books MUST be read before this one.

Now there is no denying that Bones and Bex are destined to be together. There has been an undeniable chemistry between them since they were kids. Its been a long time since they were last together but the attraction is still there. Will they act on it or leave the past in the past? Is Bones ready to give up his life of crime for the love of his life? And if so, does Bex still want him?

I know its a lot of questions. Questions I went into this book looking for and I promise, they will be answered!
I freaking loved this series so HARD! It was a remarkable end to an amazing series! I impatiently waited for the conclusion to this series and now I’m sad it’s over. But I’m sure whatever Paige comes up with next will be just as good. She is a brilliant writer and I love all of her words.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Justin had moved to town to live with his grandpa after an ex basically drug him through the dirt. His dream has always been to own a business of his own and much to his luck, the coffee shop in town is up for sale and he’s bound and determined to purchase the business. He has SO MANY plans for it.

Morgan has lived in Briarton for about 6 months. While it is not his hometown, he does consider it his home. He works at the coffee shop and had told himself if it ever was put up for sale, he would buy the place.

Seems like quite the predicament. I mean, they each want the coffee shop but it’s impossible for these 2 strangers to both get their way. Right?

I enjoyed this book very much. I am a very emotionally involved reader. I wanted nothing more than for the story to go in the direction I hoped it would in my head. I refuse to ruin the book for anyone, I hate when people do that, so I will not reveal whether or not I got my way. I will just say, if you love reading MM romance, and love it even more when it’s an age gap romance with a sexy silver fox and a marriage of convenience thrown in, you should grab The Perfect Blend. It had the perfect blend of angst, funny and sexy. I cannot wait to read the 2nd book in the series.

Finally Us (Next Generation Book 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.

WARNING: Please be advised that there are scenes in this book that deal with infant loss. If you have triggers, please read with caution.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Ahhh Vince and Gigi, oh how I have anticipated their book. The wait was long with the authors constant teasing but this story was definitely worth waiting for.
You look up the definition of soul mates in the dictionary and I’m sure there will be a picture of Vince and Gigi there. These 2 were destined to be together. There were SO MANY obstacles in their way. He is younger than her by 4 years, so he felt he needed time to mature. She was constantly in her head so Vince had a tough job ahead of him, working to break down Gigi’s walls. Then, just as he starts making progress- BAM- things manage to get crazier! But Vince is determined and Gigi can only deny her feelings for so long.
Gah! This book had it all. An oh so hot Alpha male who had me fanning myself on more than one occasion. A sweet Heroine. One who I admit, I wanted to shake some sense into several times. I just loved Gigi. And don’t even get me started on the villain. JM writes a good villain and this one takes the cake! Finally Us brought out all of my emotions. I laughed, cried, yelled, and even cussed a few times. A definite binge worthy read. I am LOVING this Next Generation Series. And seriously cannot wait for the next release.

The Perfect Child

A Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestseller.

A page-turning debut of suspense about a young couple desperate to have a child of their own—and the unsettling consequences of getting what they always wanted.

Christopher and Hannah are a happily married surgeon and nurse with picture-perfect lives. All that’s missing is a child. When Janie, an abandoned six-year-old, turns up at their hospital, Christopher forms an instant connection with her, and he convinces Hannah they should take her home as their own.

But Janie is no ordinary child, and her damaged psyche proves to be more than her new parents were expecting. Janie is fiercely devoted to Christopher, but she acts out in increasingly disturbing ways, directing all her rage at Hannah. Unable to bond with Janie, Hannah is drowning under the pressure, and Christopher refuses to see Janie’s true nature.

Hannah knows that Janie is manipulating Christopher and isolating him from her, despite Hannah’s attempts to bring them all together. But as Janie’s behavior threatens to tear Christopher and Hannah apart, the truth behind Janie’s past may be enough to push them all over the edge.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Whoa! What did I just read?!?!? My mind is still reeling. I thought I had this one figured out from the start- some parts I did- but some were complete shockers!
This is my 2nd book by Lucinda Berry. I’ve been in a bit of a reading funk lately. I haven’t read nearly as much this year as I have in the past. But this book, in all of its twisted craziness, reminded me why I LOVE reading so much. The words and plot were addictive. I found myself wishing I were home to finish my book. I just– no review I write can do this book justice. Aaannd now I feel like I’m rambling. If you love a good suspense novel, check out this book, it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.
