#WOTR24 #Vampires #RH #Paranormal – Indebted to the Vampires, House of Durand book 1 by Erin Bedford, narration by Keira Stevens and Troy Duran

Previously a novella of 15k in the Realms and Rebels box set, now lengthened to a full length novel.

A broken vase isn’t all this maid owed her masters.

Piper needed a job. Any job would do. But when the temp agency assigns her to clean the house of a bunch of snobby rich men, she isn’t sure it’s worth it.

Stuck in a job she has no choice but to keep, Piper becomes even more indebted to her employers when she breaks a priceless vase.

However, her clumsiness is the least of Piper’s troubles. Her mysterious and dangerously tempting employers have a secret. One that they are willing to kill to keep. Will she be able to save her job? Let alone live through it?

Indebted to the Vampires, House of Durand book 1 by Erin Bedford, Narration by Troy Duran and Keira Stevens
I purchased this audio book.

I grabbed this book because it checked off all my boxes…Vampires and RH being 2 of my biggest. Since I listened to the audio I am not 100% sure on the spelling of the characters names.

First up I loved me some Piper. She was not going to sit and listen to this “men” tell her what to do and treat her so rudely. She spoke her mind even IF she was getting into trouble for it.

The “men” she was taking care of were very arrogant, sexy, annoying, sexy, rude, sexy…do you get what I am saying? LOL She struggles a lot with keeping her thoughts pure especially when it comes to Wen and then Drake and then Raine and then….ok yeah all of them at some point.

As the book goes on Piper discovers the “men” are actually vampires. She is initially freaked a bit but then realized they aren’t so bad right? When she is thrust into the Vampire world and kinda war, we see Piper flounder but one of the guy is there to help her. Unfortunately that night causes trouble for your girl which we will learn about in book 2 as this does end in a cliffhanger.

I was absolutely in love with Piper and her stubborn personality. I have to say I really enjoyed Drake the most of the brothers but Wen had giving a sideways look. I cant wait to see more about Master Durand and the blood bond he has with the butler.

This book had me totally enthralled and not wanting to stop listening.

Erin Bedford is an otaku, recovering coffee addict, and Legend of Zelda fanatic. Her brain is so full of stories that need to be told that she must get them out or explode into a million screaming chibis. Obsessed with fairy tales and bad boys, she hasn’t found a story she can’t twist to match her deviant mind full of innuendos, snarky humor, and dream guys.

On the outside, she’s a work from home mom and bookbinger. One the inside, she’s a thirteen-year-old boy screaming to get out and tell you the pervy joke they found online. As an ex-computer programmer, she dreams of one day combining her love for writing and college credits to make the ultimate video game!

Until then, when she’s not writing, Erin is devouring as many books as possible on her quest to have the biggest book gut of all time. She’s written over thirty books, ranging from paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and even scifi romance.

Also, third person is really weird when writing about yourself. Just putting that out there.

#reread #BDSM #SeriesStarter – Club Shadowlands, Masters of the Shadowlands book 1 by Cherise Sinclair, narration by Noah Michael Levine

Her car disabled during a tropical storm, Jessica Randall discovers the isolated house where she’s sheltering is a private bondage club. At first shocked, she soon becomes aroused watching the interactions between the Doms and their subs. But she’s a professional woman–an accountant–and surely isn’t a submissive…is she?

Master Z hasn’t been so attracted to a woman in years. But the little sub who has wandered into his club intrigues him. She’s intelligent. Reserved. Conservative. After he discovers her interest in BDSM, he can’t resist tying her up and unleashing the passion she hides within.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, strong BDSM theme and content (including/not limited to bondage, caning, restraints, spanking, etc), exhibitionism, voyeurism.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

I am a huge fan of this series.  This is the first time I have taken the time to reread the series.  I did buy the audio books so I can read them in a new way.

Master Z and Jessica are a favorite couple for me.  She is the way any person who stumbles into a BDSM club would be thinking.  Master Z is the every dutiful and kind Master explaining and pushing the little pet into trying a few things.

The book is a great introduction to the Masters of the club and the world any fan of the series fell in love with.

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, alpha males, and absolutely sizzling sex.

I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. But although we were together less than two days and lived on opposite sides of the country, love can’t be corralled by time or space.

We’ve now been married for many, many years. (And he still looks down my swimsuit tops.)

Nowadays, I live in the west with this obnoxious, beloved husband and a seventy-pound lap-puppy. I’m a gardener, and I love nurturing small plants until they’re big and healthy and productive…and ripping defenseless weeds out by the roots when I’m angry. I enjoy thunderstorms, collecting eggs from the chickens, and visiting the local brewery for the darkest, maltiest beer on tap. My favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch next to the master of my heart, watching the fire, reading, and…well…if you’re reading my books, you obviously know what else happens in front of fires.

#WOTR24 #Audio #SeriesStarter #SmallTown #2ndChance #Sheriff #Audio – Perfect Risk, Mason Creek book 1 by C.A. Harms, narration by Kelli Tager and Ryan Stone

Mason Creek, Montana is my home. It always has been and truth is, there is no place like it.

I can hide away in a big city, pretend as if I’m not drowning. I can ignore the sadness inside my heart that is begging for a change. But if I’m being honest, my sense of belonging has disappeared. I thought I wanted the big city life, the fast track and all the glamorous things. Turns out, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than home.

Coming back to help run my mom’s business gave me the perfect escape.

But there is one problem.

An unresolved past has a way of haunting anyone. Things can sure get complicated when the man that broke your heart all those years ago is now your new landlord.

It may get a little messy, I may regret my decision to stay…
But then again, this might just be the Perfect Risk.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I won this audiobook from the author.  I also purchased the ebook from Kindle.

I am a fan of a good 2nd chance love story.  I admit I am not a huge fan of Bully romance, so I was initially skeptical when we found out Wyatt and his friends were mean to Sadie in high school.  But I was glad that was all in the past and we didn’t see that.

Sadie is coming home to help her family and using that as a reason to leave the big city she ran too after high school and her humiliation at the hands of the boy she loved.  She knew she would have to see him and hoped she would be ok.

Wyatt always regretted his choices with Sadie.  When he sees she is back in town…after crashing into her…her sass and fire make him determined to earn her forgiveness.  However, he also soon realizes she is quite a different person from when she was a kid and this woman is lighting his fire in a lot of ways.

I was a fan of Wyatt.  I know he was a gross kid but we all have regrets in high school right.  Plus high school is so over and we are all adults now.  Sadie is no hung up on never forgiving him until she starts to notice things about the man he is.

When he start to live near each other, they have to cohabitate with peace.  As the story goes on we see Wyatt and how much he regrets hurting Sadie.  We see him trying time and time again.  Of course the bad choice he made does rear its ugly hair in the story causing any women to fear what they really have.

I really enjoyed the story and characters.  I wish so badly that Wyatt’s brother’s book was in audio because I would have that downloaded so fast. He is going to be a great book for sure.

The narration for the story was well done. Both narrators did a great job bringing the characters to life for me.

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








#WOTR24 #dragons #paranormal #Audiobook #Series #Novella – Ranger, Dragon Bride Book 2 by Kate Rudolph, narration by Jonathan Waters

He’s supposed to be a prince, not a prisoner…
Things are as bad as they can get for Ranger when he’s thrown in a cell and told he’s about to be sold for a profit. But his captors don’t know he’s a dragon, and he’s ready to rain fire on them all in payback.

Until he meets Sidney.

She’s stronger than she looks…
When Sidney discovers Ranger on the ship, it throws her world into upheaval. She’s no slaver. She’ll do what it takes to free him, even if it means crossing her captain and crew. When Ranger turns the tables on her, she’s almost too angry to be attracted to him.


Freeing Ranger has repercussions. And soon it’s not just Sidney that’s in danger, but everyone she loves as well. She’ll need to trust the dragon prince if she’s going to save them all.

But how can she do that without losing her heart?


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

I am a sucker for a good novella.  I am a sucker for dragon stories.  Give me both on an audio and I am SOLD!!!

Again with all novellas you know they will be an instalove and I am all for it.  This book was about Ranger, Crux brother, and Sidney.  He is thinking he is saving some people only to be kidnapped.  Sidney I excited to be helping her “family” out on their ship when she meets Ranger escaping.  Needless to say she is stunned to learn how awful her “family” really is.

The story was quick. They had some sexy times and some bater.  Sidney didn’t put up with Ranger and he was ever the gentleman helping her people.  I liked the story well enough.  I just felt, like with the first book, I wanted more insight to the king and AFTER they come home.  We have all this fear of him disliking “humans” and his dislike for Sidney but why???  So if I have any complaint is that I wish there was more information as to this dilemma.

I love writing about kick butt heroines and the steamy heroes who love them.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I grabbed this audiobook for free on stuff your audiobook day in August/September from Google Books.

I am a sucker for a good novella.  I am a sucker for dragon stories.  Give me both on an audio and I am SOLD!!!

This story was super quick and of course instaloveish.  If you are grabbing a novella you know this so I was ready.  I will so I did enjoy the banter initially with Cruz and Courtney.  He shows up on the planet looking for his mate that the dating agent told him would be there only to discover she is human with weird rolling things she carries around.  She is feisty and not putting up with him at all.

Courtney wakes up not in her apartment and not thrilled to discover she was kidnapped with her roller skates on.  What is a girl to do!!

The story was good. We see the reason why Cruz was looking for his mate.  We see him struggle with accepting that a human is his person.  We see Courtney falling hard for the dragon prince and not happy she will be letting him go.

I do feel a little bit let down at the end. I enjoyed the couples story but I wanted maybe one more chapter to see them together on his planet…ya know see how it all shakes out in the wash.  But I did download book 2 and am diving in.

I love writing about kick butt heroines and the steamy heroes who love them.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Nova was working her ass off living on her on since both of her parents died. she was all alone no other family until one day a lawyer showed up on her doorstep and let her know that she actually had grandparents and they were not dead like she thought. her whole life was flopped upside down and she was told to pack up what she has and next thing she knew she was on a plane and in a car heading to a plane she never knew existed. with a bodyguard and a quarter in a mansion to wonder how much her parents actually told her was the truth about her family. with one of the bigger families’ males tempting her with his high standards, she’s getting fed up with being the new girl. will Nova be able to just make it through this year at school without getting into much trouble or will she find herself getting tangled with the wrong crowd in more ways than one.

Albany lives in Michigan where she’s happily married to her high school sweetheart. She spends most of her time juggling her four children’s extracurricular activities, with her nose stuck in a book. When not reading you can find her writing her very own book boyfriends. Albany’s passion is writing romance with real characters that are far from perfect, but always seem to find their own happily ever afters.

#Audio #Military #SecretBaby #2ndChance – Fallen Comrade, Project Morpheus Book 1 by Jillian David, Narration by Tiffany Morgan

All she needs to do is suppress her feelings for Jake long enough to destroy Fallen Comrades, stay alive, and save her baby.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I won this audiobook.

I have been watching this book for a couple years.  The first time I saw it was when it was a preorder.  Then last year I saw it but there wasn’t an audio.  This year I won an audio copy from the author at a book event.  I was sooooo excited.  I mean the blurb was totally ME!!

I downloaded it and jumped in.  The story is about Jake and Kiera.  They have a history to put it mildly.  He must save her since she found out some bad things about some bad guys.  We meet Jake’s military team who are all infected with the virus that makes them kinda “hulk” out in a way.  LOL   I mean they don’t turn green but they get BIG MAD.  LOL

The audio for the book was good.  It wasn’t the best, but it was far from the worst.  The narrator did a fine job reading the story but a couple times when she was “Jake” the voice was Kiera and vice versa.  Nothing terrible and it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the story.

Now the story.  I understand this is the first book in a series, so I give it time to explain people, situations, etc. However, I felt like this book was REALLY slow to develop with a lot of repeating information from different POV’s in the same scenes.  SO that did become a bit tedious for me, but I did stick it out and continue to read.

Jake has so many issues he needs to pull a city bus behind him.  The man was infuriating with his push and pull to Kiera.  I was like DUUUUUDE.  But Kiera was too soft hearted to me.  I was like GIRL!!!  They have history with having dated in high school, being her brother’s best friend, and then a little oppps that created the “little bit” in her belly.

I did enjoy the story but it was very slow to go and I felt like it stayed pretty slow going. There were a few days I set the book down and walked away for a day or two.  The love story has intense scenes that were great when Kiera and Jake weren’t fighting.

The concept was interesting, and it did make me push through to continue the story.

The Proposing Kind: Brew Ha Ha, Book 4

Hailey Tate is living the good life: A new book contract, great friends, the man of her—oh, who is she kidding, she never would have dreamed up pro-ball player, Connor Ryan. But somehow, they work.

So when Connor may or may not have proposed, it’s left up to Hailey and her Brew Crew girls figure it all out. Ridiculousness, shenanigans, arguments, and reconciliations ensue…because, Quirky Girl Power!

But at the end of it all, is Hailey ready to marry America’s Most Eligible Athlete or is time to call a delay on that particular play?


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

LOL This book is a mix of confusion and hilariousness.  When the chapter starts with Connor wondering if he should propose to Hailey…oh yeah he has this convo with HAILEY.  It sends our girl into a freakout.

Hailey is worried about marrying Connor.  She fears it is too soon.  Slowly as this book happens, she realizes there is no reason why she should fear marriage to Connor.  He is her everything.

This book we see Connor is a bit distracted and we the readers can kinda figure out what is going on but we wonder how this will all play out.   The final chapters had me in stitches because Connor and Hailey are a riot.

I absolutely love this crew and especially Hailey and Connor.  They are my heart couple.  But I admit I am giving Gavin side eye much like Hailey.  Dang Connor so telling us…I mean Hailiey we can’t have his brother and him.  LOL

This novel is an absolute must for a fan of the series.  This made me so happy but I really want to see so many more books from the series.  Gavin needs love.  Abby needs love.  Dane even needs to get his butt kicked by love too.

Bria Quinlan is an award-nominated bestselling author of eight Romantic Comedies and YA Issue Books (that she swears are funny…really. They are.) Her books make you snort Diet Coke out your nose or tear up and curse her name.


#WOTR23 #Dark #SerialKiller #BDSM #Audio – Depraved, Pleasure & Prey book 1 by AJ Merlin

Living and working on a campground with her dogs is not where Sloane Walker saw herself at twenty-seven. But then again, not a lot has gone right for her since her step-father kidnapped her at twelve years old and scarred her both physically and mentally for life. Those actions should’ve left him rotting in prison for the rest of his life, not seeing him out on good behavior and giving him free rein to track Sloane down to make ‘amends.’

But that’s not her only problem, as if she needs more than one. Her second problem comes in the form of the masked stalker that slides into her room at night and takes what he pleases, making sure Sloane enjoys every second of it. What starts as a fantasy soon becomes something inescapable for them both, and Sloane might have to face up to a very important fact about her new friend.

He’s unhinged, psychotic, and utterly obsessed with her. And while those should be very bad things, Sloane can’t help thinking that maybe they aren’t so bad at all, no matter what that might mean for her sanity or her safety in the end.

Author’s note: This is a complete standalone set in the Pleasure & Prey universe. It contains consensual kink, unhealthy relationships, and harmful situations. For a full list of content warnings, please look inside.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

I met this author at a book signing and thought she was the most amazing person EVAH.  I mean she let me pet her service dog and so of course she is now my best friend.  LOL  But for real, I needed to read a book of hers and had audio credits to use and DING DING.  LAWD When I saw this was a dark romance I legit fell over my own feet running to start listening.

The narration by Lia Holland was good.  She kept the story going well and brought Sloane to life for me the listener.

Ok so I know this book is marketed as DARK romance and the themes are DARK but guys it Sweet dark.  LOL  By that I mean I have read DAAAARK SHEEET and this is not near what I would call DARK.  This is a dark chocolate cupcake instead of a vanilla cupcake with buttercream frosting.  So those of you worried or afraid, Ya’ll go for it.  Virgil and his filthy mouth will keep you enthralled.

So Sloane, has gone through some stuff with her step dad.  She is a trauma survivor and living her ebst life with her service dog and other dog.  They enjoy the simple life working and living at a campground.  Good right?  Well one day a super, uber, hawt man, Virgil, checks in and Sloane takes notice.  So much notice she is thinking about him when she …well ya know…wink wink.  Virgil seems to pop up all the time and is very interested in Sloane. Kinda nice right…oh yeah until he tells her he is a serial killer.  Now granted I jumped the ship a bit but yeah every guys has to have 1 bad habit right??  LOL

The way Virgil starts to spend time with Sloane is another questionable method but hey he was trying to woo her…..and woo her he did…

I know some people had issue with stuff but I enjoyed it for what it was …smut…filthy and raw smut.  LOL Don’t come at me .  I am being honest.  I liked the story and the couple.  This book was not a true dark romance in what most dark romance readers are wanting but I was here for it!!

AJ Merlin would rather write epic love stories than live them. I mean, who wants to limit themselves to only falling in love once? She is obsessed with dark fantasy, true crime, and also dogs. From serial killers to voyeurs all the way down to the devil himself, AJ’s specialty is in writing irredeemable heroes who somehow still manage to captivate their heroines (and her readers).

Get a date for the big gala in four weeks when I thought I could go solo? Challenge, accepted.

Now to find a hot, interesting guy who will dress up for a gala. Last minute. Who doesn’t already have plans on the busiest date night of the year.

But, so far the best part of the search for a great date has been the cute café I found and the geeky-hot owner who keeps rescuing me from these crazy dates.

This should be easy-peasy. The internet is the home of all your hopes and needs, right?

Spoiler Alert: it isn’t.

Between the bromance date and the crazed single dad who needs to hire a nanny and housekeeper, not get a date, I’m running out of options.

If only a certain cutey didn’t have a phone call with “sweetheart” every day.

The weirder things get, the more I think just going solo is very I Am Woman, blah blah blah. Forget about the fact that my heart keeps bringing me back to a certain café even when I don’t need to be there…I mean, my heart doesn’t always get what it wants, does it?

My Review –

I purchased this audiobook.
I have read a few really heavy and dark books lately. I needed something fun and light hearted. I needed something sweet and fun. I also needed something to spend my audio credit on….hence this book.
Guys, this book was everything I needed. It most definitely took me out of the dark stuff I have been reading into a fun and adorable happy story.
Sarah is in need of a date. Sarah is pushed into online dating due to a “friend” who makes she feel less then because she doesn’t have a boyfriend. The dates are an absolutely horror show to say in the least. She is meeting her dates at a coffee shop when she befriends the shop owner. Slowly they build a friendship when Sarah realizes, Holy crap I love John!
The story was adorable and sweet and I will be grabbing the 2nd one asap. The story was just sweet and funny and everything you need at times.


Second Chance Romance, Mafia Romance, Forbidden Love, Opposites Attract When sexy bad boy Samson opens Club Wicked in Vegas, he thought he left his ghosts and mob ties in New York. But when Lisbeth, his old flame, shows up to celebrate her bachelorette their steamy, uninhibited passion comes flooding back, and they realize their attraction is undeniable. Lisbeth breaks off the engagement, but her powerful, vindictive fiancé threatens to close down Club Wicked, and reveal Samson’s dark secrets and dangerous past. Samson refuses to lose Lisbeth again. He vows to protect her at all costs, but is the price too high? Lisbeth is willing to fight for what she wants since she can’t resist the addictive pull of their love. Will Samson deny his love to keep Lisbeth safe or will he be forced to seek the mob’s help—the very people he longed to escape? “An adrenaline-packed plot and star-crossed lovers you won’t want to put down this one down.” “A thrilling story of love and redemption. You’ll be captivated by Samson and Lisbeth’s epic love story.” Wicked Temptation is Book 2 in the Club Wicked Duet and although it is a standalone with an HEA and can easily be read on its own you may want to begin with Wicked Addiction.

My Review –

I received this book from the authors PR firm for an honest review.
I was super excited when I saw this was a spin off from an MC series. I am always looking for an MC series so now I want to jump back and read that entire catalog especially after meeting the characters in this series. (Serpents MC Las Vegas if you are looking for one too. But I also have my eye on Boa…just saying.)
I am also a HUGE lover of 2nd chance which this book has from jump. Samson and Lisbeth are a bomb of chemistry from the first time we see them together …at her bachelorette party no less. They are both transported in time to when he broke her heart. She has no clue why and he keeps that secret close to the chest until toward the end of the story but que the AWWWW When I read it. Yes, Samson is a swoon worthy Alpha Male who will beat the crap outta a dude, wash off the blood his hands, and then attack your lips in his office 5 minutes later. But that is why we love them. AmIRight???
Samson and Lisbeth have A LOT to get through. History, miscommunication, oh and that pesky douche bag fiancée. That is kinda a big one for Lisbeth. They also have to deal with people trying to destroy all that Samson and his partner Nick have built.
I am loving the series and the characters in it. Jax has me looking at him saying HEEY you. He might be broken on the outside with is scary scars buuuut those are the yummiest of men IMO. Nick. I don’t know about him. His heart is so broken. It is going to take a special lady to open him up. Perhaps Willow???? I mean her free spirit could be that woman. But not Daria please and thanks. #SayNoToSkanks
I am waiting for book 2 and cant wait to see who is the next alpha to fall.


A True Story of Murder, Family Secrets, and the Unbreakable Bond of Sisterhood

After more than a decade, when sisters Nikki, Sami, and Tori Knotek hear the word mom, it claws like an eagle’s talons, triggering memories that have been their secret since childhood. Until now.

For years, behind the closed doors of their farmhouse in Raymond, Washington, their sadistic mother, Shelly, subjected her girls to unimaginable abuse, degradation, torture, and psychic terrors. Through it all, Nikki, Sami, and Tori developed a defiant bond that made them far less vulnerable than Shelly imagined. Even as others were drawn into their mother’s dark and perverse web, the sisters found the strength and courage to escape an escalating nightmare that culminated in multiple murders.

My Review –

I purchased this audiobook.
This book …WOOOF…that is really all I can say. It is A LOT. I mean a lot a lot. There were days when I just couldn’t listen anymore because the story was just so much. Then I would shut it off and almost feel guilty. I could walk away from this horror but Nikki, Sami, and Tori couldn’t. What they girls lived through is unimaginable.
As a reader of true crime, when I saw this book I was very interested. I did a few google searches to see what I was going to be listening to. They did not prepare me for what horrors these kids and the adults around Shelly endured.
I just have to say listening to “The Wallowing” or when Karen was sliding down the icy hill and the after math the kids described I was completely undone. How these girls survive and endured is amazing.
I just want people to know they really need to be ready for this story. I just wish there was more about the investigation but maybe due to who told there want much. The fact that Shelly is out of jail right now is scary as heck!!


Being relocated to a small-town PD in Colorado was the last thing I needed. Being assigned to babysit the captain’s daughter didn’t help either. She’s quirky, young, and unfortunately, the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Cap only has one rule. Keep my hands to myself. Turns out to be harder than it looks. Now I live in her house, and at night I hear her cries. She’s haunted by her dreams just like I’m haunted by my past. She may be crazy, or she may be the only key to unlocking the dark secrets of this town. The clock is ticking, and the closer we get, the more dangerous it becomes. We both heard the captain’s warning loud and clear……too bad neither of us listened.

Book 1 of the Timber Creek Series. Series will contain interconnected standalones.

My Review-

I received this book from the authors for an honest review.
I met this author after I saw a TikTok of hers about a different series. I am so thankful she has allowed me to read that series and is giving me her new series to read as well.
This is a great series starter with some amazing characters we meet. I admit as much as I LOVED the main H/h in this book, book 2’s couple has me clawing to read their story. I mean I messaged the author to say NOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW. She even agreed with me about their story being a great read to come.
Ok so this series starts with Jace in the shrink’s office not wanting to admit how he is feeling about the death of his partner and best friend. He is reassigned to a small town for 3 months to get his stuff together essentially. He goes to the town and immediately sees Camille. He gets the official “Hands off” by her dad…ya know…his new boss the Captain of the force. Unfortunately, circumstances will force them to be thrown together 24/7 which makes hands off near impossible.
Camille is having a hard time. She knows what people think of her and she is a broken women thanks to her ex-boyfriend, Stuart. She is attracted to the new detective until he talks. Then his mouth makes her remember what a jerk he is. LOL
This story has a LOT of chemistry. The slow burn of Jace and Camille is HAWT. LAWD, when they finally crash and combust, loooook out!!!
The side story of the missing girls is a low theme in the story until its not. Then we are running to figure out who, what, and why of what is happening. I admit I was so wrapped up in the Jace and Cami when I realized what was happening, I was like RUN FASTER!!! Get going!!!!!
But Easton and Ellie….I cannot wait!!


Vegas is where good people go to sin. Reno is where the bad ones go.

Amidst the drugs, weapons, and trafficking, a murder-for-hire market has emerged. And my motorcycle club is right in the thick of it.

If you can pay, we have a million different ways to solve your problem. You want someone to vanish without a trace? The Great Basin Desert is almost two hundred thousand square miles of “nobody will ever find you.” You want to make a statement? We’ve been known to hang bodies from the Reno Arch.

If you’re paying, we’re killing. No witnesses, no evidence, and no questions asked.

That is until we’re hired to locate and kill a group threatening biological warfare by exposing our city to a deadly virus they stole. It’s the big payday we need. But in order to take the job, we have to also agree to protect the spoiled brat who saw everything.

Small. Frail. Innocent. Frightened. I made her my little birdie, but she always wants to fly away. Too bad for her I’ve clipped her wings and locked her in my cage.

They say free birds sing, and caged birds pray. Her cries sound the same to me.

*Birdie’s Biker is a dark romance in the second run of the Royal Bastards MC. It’s sexy as sin, thrilling, gritty, and dirty. If you love tortured heroes and a heroine who learns her strength in the most depraved way, then you’ll love Birdie’s Biker.

My Review –

I purchased this audio book.
I am a HUGE MC reader. I was needing a new series when I was recommended this one. I admit when I saw Troy was a narration, I jumped. His narration is awesome, and I knew I would love the story. Kelsey was also so great at being Bridget/Birdie. She did a great job showing the naïve girl she was and the Bad Ass she was at the end.
Loki is a bad ass. He is happy with his club girl or hang arounds for company plus a bottle of Tequilla. His life is perfect. No woman is going to lock his down and make him unhappy like he sees his dad.
Bridget/Birdie is a happy, clueless socialite. She likes her life but knows she is missing something but what she doesn’t know. When Bridget is thrust into Loki’s arms for her protection, the two clash off like crazy. However, the more she pushes him, the more he loves her fire and sass.
I absolutely fell in love with the characters in this series but I will not lie, Roch….imma need to read your book ASAP. I am so glad I have more credits to grab that audio as well!!! LOL
The story of why Bridget is with Loki was good. The crazy crash of chemistry these two have is so fun to read. She pushes him and he pushes her, but they just can’t stay away from each other. The way their relationship starts and the fear they both have about this relationship was written well. They are both so unsure and yet sure of the other.
Like I said I cant wait for more from this series!!!


Rockstar Elijah Wilder is famous.
And a father.
Ready to turn his back on the one thing he’s good at, the talent that made him a household name.

I’m a poor nobody.
Struggling to stay in school.
Failing miserably.
Believing I’m wearing the emperor’s new clothing and not fooling anybody.

Elijah and I don’t belong together. We shouldn’t have even met. But when his wife enters rehab, he needs a nanny.

I can’t bring myself to say no.

Familiarity breeds lust, and, when his wife becomes his ex, Elijah and I wind up together. But we’re a bad combination. I’m too young for him and I don’t know what I want. And the longer I stay in the rockstar life…

I’m pretty sure that’s not it.

But Elijah and I try anyway, even with all the odds against us.

My Review –

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
If you read Jade, then you know she can write amazing rocker stories. Bullet is by far on of my favorite books. I have got to say this book is like reading bullet all over again. The dynamic, the twists, the betrayals, the drug issues, and the LOVE!!! OMG Friends. This book I devoured. Like couldn’t put down and got mad when I had to do silly things like EAT because I was starving. I made Alexa read to me during that time!!!
Elijah is a famous rocker who, due to his wife’s drug addiction he ends up meeting Madison. When this stranger jumps in and helps in during a really awful time in his wife’s life with the care of his daughter, he hires her to help full-time.
Madison was failing out of school so the change to travel sounded amazing. The pay was anther great benefit to the job. What she didn’t expect was the love to the little girl and her sexy daddy.
The chemistry building between Elijah and Mads was so freaking thick!!! Gah when they finally crash I was screaming YES only to have Elijah be an idiot and I was cussing him. But when his jealousy flairs up and they give it a go, I was so happy.
However, when the day-to-day life on the bus, drama with band mates, and that old monkey on his back comes back, Mads is OVER it!!!
I had tears a few times in the story because we just love Madison. We want her to be happy and if that means alone then so be it!! I was fully invested in the story and characters. I absolutely loved the characters and the emotional ride we were on with Elijah and Mads.
