#MysterySuspense # Thriller —The Perfect Child— by: Lucinda Berry

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.

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.

#MMRomance #Soulmates —Perfect Timing by: AD Ellis

Both men had pretty much given up on finding their forever, but fate was just waiting for the right time.
Charlie moves to small-town Briarton with plans to live his quiet life as a writer. He’s resigned himself to being alone and isn’t expecting anything different from his new home. But a coffee mix-up brings him face-to-face with a man Charlie had decided didn’t really exist.
Nixon is grateful for a new job in a new town. He’s ready to leave the past in the past and settle down. He’s not actively looking for a relationship—that’s never worked out for him before—but he can’t deny the instant connection he has with his newest patient’s nephew.
Is it too late for Charlie and Nix to find their happily ever after? Or will they accept fate’s gift and allow themselves a love they thought they’d never find?
**Perfect Timing is a steamy, M/M romance with an introverted, demisexual writer and a big, soft teddy bear of a nurse trying to navigate a love they’ve always dreamed of but most definitely weren’t expecting.**

Goodreads

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Charlie moves to Briarton to write. He has deadlines to meet and the small town is the perfect place for peace and quiet. Charlie is single and not looking to mingle. He is caring for his elderly uncle and writing and is content with that.

Nixon just bought a house in Briarton. He is working as a nurse for the local Dr’s office. Just like Charlie, he’s not exactly looking for a relationship.

You know the saying- The One for you will show up when you least expect it?
Well let’s just say both of these men are blindsided by the instant connection they feel for one another and they aren’t sure how to deal with this revelation.

I read the first book in this series, thinking it was a standalone. I will just say I’m so happy it wasn’t. I love the little town of Briarton and these 2 men were great additions. And don’t even get me started on Charlie’s Uncle Otto. That man and his meddling added the perfect amount of humor to the story.

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.

#MMRomance #FakeMarriage #AgeGap Perfect Blend by: AD Ellis


They never planned to mix business with pleasure, but together they’re the perfect blend.

Justin plans to put his business and baking skills to good use once he owns the small-town coffee shop of his dreams. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to make his dreams come true. If that means involving an unsuspecting silver fox in his scheme, so be it.
Morgan knows moving to Briarton was the right step in getting his life back on track. A case of mistaken identity lands Morgan right in the middle of young, handsome Justin’s completely unexpected plan. Morgan should just say no, but something deep inside urges him to take a chance.
Will Justin and Morgan complete the terms of their unconventional deal? Or will they finally admit there’s more between them than they first realized?

**The Perfect Blend is a steamy, M/M age-gap, marriage of convenience, coffee shop romance.**

Goodreads

Amazon

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.

Being Us (The Next Generation book 4) by: JM Walker

Tanner-
She was beautiful.
Loved.
Strong.
After hiding away for six months with just my dog to keep me company, I was forced out of the shadows only to end up in the arms of an enemy.
Beatrix Lister saved my life. I had been taking care of myself for so long, I didn’t know how to ask for help, but she refused to go down without a fight.
She was warm where I was frigid.
She was kind and caring where I was a cold-blooded monster.
I did things to survive.
I battled the evils of the world to live.
I didn’t deserve her heart but fell in love with her anyway.
As much as I wanted to be with her, I needed answers and I would do anything to get them.
Even if it meant breaking the heart of the only woman I had ever loved.
~
-Bee-
He was lonely.
Intense.
Brave.
Tanner Horsch came into my life unexpectedly. He was like a tornado, ripping up everything in its path.
There was something about him that I craved.
His touch. His words. His need to survive.
But as we were getting to know each other, he still had walls up.
He refused to let me in knowing my family didn’t approve of him.
I refused to let him go.
After being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he escaped and eventually he ran right into my arms.
He was the villain of someone else’s story, but he was the hero of mine.
I just prayed that he could see that not all monsters are truly evil.
Before it was too late, and he gave himself to the enemy.
My family.

WARNING: Please be advised that there are scenes in this book that mention past child abuse and trauma. If you have triggers, please read with caution.

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Tanner was a villain when we first met him. Or was he really? All I know is Tanner has redeemed himself in my book and I’ve forgiven him for all his past transgressions. This man is hella fine and so flipping good for Bee. These 2 completely complete each other. Their story was a smoking H-O-T slow burn!!! I loved every agonizingly loooong minute of it. The build up was deliciously slow and when they finally connected, it was FIRE! *fans self* Oh my!

I counted down the days for this release. It was definitely worth the wait. I am loving this Next Generation Series. These “kids” are always up to something and it makes for some amazing page turners, thats for sure!

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Tenise

Silver & Gold is book #2 in the Silver in the City Series. Each book is about a different couple, but I highly recommend reading them in order to have a better understanding of things. Plus, each of these couples have their own things that make them AMAZING. You don’t wanna miss a thing.

What would you do if you started feeling MORE for a casual fling? If you are thinking maybe you should take things to the next level, then an unfortunate mistake, turns you into enemies?

That is exactly what happened to Benji & Rhys and now the only place they want to take things is far, far away from each other. That is kind of hard for them to do since they really have nowhere to hide.

I love this series so much! All of the men are amazing and each of them have a special place in my heart. I’m both excited and sad to read book 3. I don’t want this series to end.

A.d. Ellis is my go to when I need an MM fix. Her books always grab me from the first paragraph and don’t let go until the last word. Silver and Gold had the same effect on me. I can’t wait to read book 3 in this series.

#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

Amazon

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.

#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.

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’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.
