Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book from Booksprout for an honest review.

ZOMBIE LOVE in full force!!  WHOOT WHOOT!!  So this book starts with Velvet and her precious buddy and only friend of the 10 year apocalypse, Dennis the cat.  LOL  Yes she has a cat friend.

Velvet has returned home to try and figure life out.  After traveling all over she hopes coming home will help her maybe find the answer to what happened??  All she finds is zombies and some strangers!!!  Velvet is not sure she should trust them.  Eshe and her crew are stunned to have been living here for a year and find a girl plus a CHILD in their town.  She worries she has been letting her guard down.

This story is a lot of world building in that we learn about the group and Velvet.  We are getting to know how the group functions and how Velvet has lived alone for so many years.  We see the new rag tag team forming a plan to save a child. Who in the world has a baby in this mess?  Who in the world leaves a child?  Is this a trap?  Who is setting up who?  So many questions but I loved the beginning of the series. I am kinda looking Winchester over like HEEEEY Big man!!!  Come hang with me *wiggles eyes*

L.C. Mortimer was raised on a small farm in Kansas, which sparked her interest in going off the grid. Learning how to can, garden, and become self-reliant were all important parts of her upbringing. After pursuing her degree in English Literature, Mortimer traveled the country with her husband, living in Hawaii, Maryland, and everywhere in between. When she’s not busy dreaming up her next story, Mortimer can be found stocking up on canned goods for the zombie apocalypse.

#PreOrder #MM #MC – Heavy: A Steel Bones Motorcycle Club Romance, Book 7 by Cate C Wells

Heavy: A Steel Bones Motorcycle Club Romance by [Cate C. Wells]

The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Heavy
Dina is off limits. She’s my brother Wall’s little sister. She’s wired different, and despite the malice aforethought, she’s innocent.

She wants me to help her bury a body.

I want to unravel her beautiful brain.

I want to let her explore me—and watch the light in her eyes when she discovers what she needs and how badly she needs it.

I want her.

I’m the Steel Bones Motorcycle Club president and CEO of Steel Bones Construction. Around here, I’m the last word and the first in the line of fire.

I’m Heavy Ruth.

I don’t get to have what I want.

Dina
He’s ruthless, and he knows how to dispose of a body. That’s all I’m looking for in a man.

I’m not catching feelings. I don’t do emotion. My frequency is sensation.

So what if he’s too much in the most mind-blowing way? So what if I’m curious about him—and I’m not curious about anyone.

This is just a conspiracy to commit murder.

Not love.

I might have said “I do,” but those are only words.

Right?

Heavy, the seventh book in the Steel Bones Motorcycle Club series, features Dina Wall, a crossover character from Hitting the Wall. The novel can be read as a standalone, but for maximum enjoyment, consider reading Hitting the Wall and the other books in the Steel Bones series first. Intended only for adult readers.

HEA guaranteed.

#NewRelease #ReleaseDay- Great Pretender, Cocky Hero Club Book by Khardine Gray

Great Pretender (Cocky Hero Club)

He needs a wife so he can get his inheritance.
I’m up to my eyeballs in debt with a sick father who needs treatment.
When he offers me a million dollars to be his fake wife, am I supposed to say no?

Chad Holdsworth is one of the wealthiest football stars in the country.
We’ve been best friends since birth.
So his shenanigans are nothing new to me.
The idea of getting married should have been easy.

Until he kissed me.

We then forgot we were supposed to be pretending.
And broke all the rules.

I know better than to fall for a playboy.
Even if he is my friend.
But I’m so lost in him I can’t see my way back.
With that panty-melting smile and his bedroom baby blues, he could get a nun in trouble.
What chance do I have of resisting?

If you play with fire, you will get burned.
Loving this man might be a mistake I’m not prepared for.

#WOTR21 #KU #Review #SeriesStarter #Paranormal – Fashionable Dead, Hot Damned #1 by Robyn Peterman

Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned, #1)

Vampyres don’t exist. They absolutely do not exist.

At least I didn’t think they did ‘til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead?

Now I’m a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren’t bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe. On the downside, I’m stuck with an obscenely profane Guardian Angel who looks like Oprah and a Fairy Fighting Coach who’s teaching me to annihilate like the Terminator.

To complicate matters, my libido has increased to Vampyric proportions and my attraction to a hotter than Satan’s underpants killer rogue Vampyre is not only dangerous . . . it’s possibly deadly. For real dead. Permanent death isn’t on my agenda. Avoiding him is my only option. Of course, since he thinks I’m his, it’s easier said than done. Like THAT’S not enough to deal with, all the other Vampyres think I’m some sort of Chosen One.

Holy Hell, if I’m in charge of saving an entire race of blood suckers, the Undead are in for one hell of a ride

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I haven’t laughed this hard for a loooong time. I have to tell you/warn you to be ready for the hysterical outburst of laughter….like I freaking SNORTED I was laughing so hard. I even almost spit my sweet tea across the room at one point. So if I must “warn you about this book” please be careful not to choke and die during fits of giggles and laughter while reading.

So this book is about a typical girl who likes to shop…hello Prada. She has the gross habit of smoking. She decided to smoke a bunch til she puked and then get hypnotized so she wont smoke again. Well she goes and ends up becoming a vampyre instead. I have to stay the best parst of the novel are the beginning and meeting all the people who are sent to help Astrid. Her “angel ” Pam who is a foul mouthed doppelganger of Oprah. Her Warrior trained Fairy “The Kev” who looked like Arnold Schwarzenegger …….I was cracking up at the fact The Kev is fashionably challenged. Then we meet Paris Hilton the goth chick who doen’t own any hotel chains….The demons who Astrid cares for are names Ross, Rachel, Beyonce and Honest Abe. I have to say….hilarious!!!

Astrid is the chosen one who will save the Vamps from the demons. I will say the story has some awesome plot twisits. I would be laughing my ass off and then say “DAMN IT SHE DID IT AGAIN!!!” Robyn wrote an awesome story to any and all paranormal people. Astrid meets what she assumes is a rogue vampyre and vanishes before he can kill her. she later remeets this vampyre and realizes he is the prince who she is to save and protect being the chosen one….well the prince decided to take matters into his own hands and starts the mating cycle with a public bite……oooops Astrid is embarrassed that she “has a great O” while standing in front of 600 vamps….lol. The couple have a great chemistry. I loved the dynamic of the two main characters. I loved the side characters of Heathcliff and Gemma.

The chosen one is to save the king, vampyres, and friends from the demons and rogue vampyres…….

I really want to just write the whole plot here but if i do then you wont one click buy it so I am going to STOP and say….listen to me…buy it for a great story and a lot of laughter.

Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.
A former professional actress, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her a chance to have a job where working in her P.J.’s is acceptable. You can follow Robyn at http://www.robynpeterman.com and at Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robyn-P….

#ReleaseDay #Series – Perfect Secret, Mason Creek Book #12 by Molly McLain

Perfect Secret (Mason Creek #12)

A fake relationship with a sexy cowboy in a small-town is never a good idea…

-Alana-

After high school, my plan was to leave the small town of Mason Creek and never look back. I thought I’d work my way through college while my long-time, bull rider boyfriend chased his rodeo dreams and took me along for the ride.

My own dreams of becoming his publicist and living the high life together on the PBR circuit were crushed when it became clear that my eight seconds was up. The buckle bunnies were suddenly more appealing than the girl with her nose buried in the books.

I’ve sworn off men, especially cowboys and bull riders.

That is, until I walk in on one in my shower, naked, wet, and built like he could break my heart… and my bed.

-Holden-

The rodeo has been my whole world, and all it took was one false accusation to bring it crumbling down. I cleared my name, but the organization I’ve given my life and my body to for the past seven years doesn’t give a damn. They don’t want the drama and right now they don’t want me.

That’s how I ended up in Mason Creek, hiding from the cameras while the dust settles and I can reclaim my reputation and my rank in the PBR. The last thing I need is to get messed up with a local girl, especially one who hates cowboys–bull riders in particular.

Our relationship may be just for show, but I see the opportunity for what it is…The chance to keep my secret a little longer and prove to Alana that maybe her problem with bull riders is simple…

She hasn’t ridden the right one yet.

#ReleaseDay – Sainted, The Invisibles #8 by Heather Slade

Sainted

He’s a playboy M16 agent trying to change his ways.
She’s straight-shooter working for the CIA.
Together, they’re INVINCIBLE.

SAINT
I’ve got a reputation to mend—a lifestyle to correct. Hell, I’m no saint; I like my women. But I want this job more than anything. Walking the straight and narrow is going to be hard, but being an INVINCIBLE is even harder. And the hardest job of all: keeping my hands off of the sexy CIA assistant who has me praying for mercy.

HARPER
With a cheating ex and a new job on the horizon, I just need to blow off some steam. Sleeping with a rugged and hot stranger does the trick—right up until my first day of work when I’m face-to-face with my one-night stand. Now, we’re working together, and things are heating up. Whoever said that the sinners are much more fun have never met SAINT.

Goodreads

Heather Slade gave herself the gift of writing a book for her own birthday one year. Thirty-plus books later (and counting), she’s hit a couple of best-seller lists and has had the time of her life. For Slade, the joy is in the writing, but nothing makes her happier than hearing from a reader who tells her that she’s made her laugh or cry or gasp or hold her breath or stay up all night because she can’t put one of her books down.

The women she writes are self-confident, strong, with wills of their own, and hearts as big as the Colorado sky. The men are sublimely sexy, seductive alphas who rise to the challenge of capturing the sweet soul of a woman whose heart they’ll hold in the palm of their hand forever. Add in a couple of neck-snapping twists and turns, a page-turning mystery, and a swoon-worthy HEA, and you’ll be holding one of Slade’s books in your hands.

#NewRelease – CODE NAME: TIARA, Jameson Force Security Book #7 by Sawyer Bennett

Code Name: Tiara (Jameson Force Security #7)

I joined Jameson Force Security for three reasons: the missions, the danger, and the money. I definitely didn’t join the team to be an overpriced babysitter for a spoiled princess. Ask anyone who knows me, and they’ll tell you Jackson Gale is an adventurer through and through. Yet here I am, halfway across the world, watching over Princess Camille of the House Winterbourne. Even her name sounds stuck up.

After arriving in Bretaria, I realize that Princess Camille is nothing that I expected. Beautiful, smart, and sophisticated, Camille is the very picture of elegance and grace. But under her perfect façade, she is funny, adventurous, sexy as hell, and impossible to resist. And that is a dangerous combination.

The closer Camille and I become, the more obvious it is that while she and I are compatible in many ways, our destinies are not. She has a duty to the monarchy, and I’m just an average American who’s fallen for a princess. Everyone says we can’t be together, but how does one walk away from the other half of their heart?

#NewRelease #PNR – Dark Legacy by Betty Legend/Betty Shreffler

Dark Legacy

Nothing like falling for your sworn enemy and starting a war.

I live in a world where demons exist. I’ve been trained as a lethal weapon to hunt and kill in order to protect humans. That is until I met him—an incubus—an alluring, sensual, dream-weaving demon that ignites every fiber of my being and leaves me yearning for more of him. I shouldn’t want him. He’s the enemy, everything I’ve been trained to hate. Yet, there’s no fighting it, our desire is electric, the heat combustive.

What’s worse is…I want out. I want a life of my own without orders or the solitude of being a hunter. I want freedom. Only problem is, the organization I work for gives you two choices; obey orders or die.

I have other plans.

To get out, I dig into their secrets. The more I dig, the darker those secrets become. They’ll do whatever it takes to protect themselves and bury their problems.

In order to survive, I have to turn to the enemy. It’s in his passionate arms where I discover the truth and reclaim my freedom.

Together, we fight against a new enemy—the Arcane Society—and save more than just our lives…

If you like action-packed, paranormal, urban fantasies that feature a bad@ss heroine, a dangerous hero, and a steamy enemies-to-lovers romance, then this adventure is for you!
