Diego

Known as DJ among his pride, Diego Cordova moved to South America to escape his life as an assassin and torture expert for a cartel. His ability to turn off his humanity is what kept him alive through all the ugliness thrust upon him. Yet his soul is scarred from each life he took… making him feel unworthy of a mate.

Kymber

Kymber Prescott knows her boss, Ricardo, is a horrible person, but she’s powerless to escape him. Even so, she‘s irresistibly drawn to DJ and refuses to let Ricardo hurt him, or his loving pride. To protect them all, she’s willing to gamble with the one thing Ricardo has yet to rip away… her life.

Tapping into the side of himself he thought he put behind him, DJ fights to free Kymber from Ricardo’s clutches. Will he get to her in time? Or will her freedom be auctioned off to the highest bidder?

Goodreads

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

DJ……MMMMM yes!!!  I have been waiting for you baby!!!  I wanted to know why you have such darkness in your soul. You back story did not disappoint at alllllll.

Kymber….girl you need a damn hug.  When you fall for the wrong man, it makes everything terrible but, in your case, it puts your life in jeopardy.

Ricardo, dude…you are not every going to be good enough for Kymber or man enough to defeat DJ.  Just saying.  I guess the lessons your daddy taught you, you should have paid better attention too!!

This book had me sitting on the edge of my seat because it was so well written!!  I mean DJ being able to control himself when he sees the monster Ricardo is but also keep his beast at bay….yes please….he is a great character.

Kymber has my heart in knots.  I mean gahhhhh we knew why she did what she did was to protect herself and DJ but guuuurlllll give that man your heart!!

When the dramatic twist happens and Kymber is in danger, I was seriously so glad that DJs people were there to help him . He needs to find Kymber before the fates take her from him!!!

Guys this book…gah I loved it.  I loved seeing DJ tell his story and I LOVED the reaction because I was even like DAYUM!!!!!!!!!!

#WOTR21 #NewRelease #Paranormal #Witches #Shifters – Cursed Touch, Broderick Coven Book 4 by AJ Renee

Cursed Touch (Broderick Coven, #4)

Carter Broderick had been healing living beings for as long as he could recall.
His gift had encouraged him to enter the medical field, and besides his family, it was his biggest love.

But everything in his life changed when she burst through the ER doors.

Vanessa Rayne was an ordinary woman. She made jewelry and was proud of her business but was pretty sure humans weren’t the only residents of her city.

The supernatural world preferred to work outside of human knowledge, so word spread fast about the curious human.

With a target on his girl’s back, can Carter protect Vanessa before she becomes another statistic?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Carter and Vanessa are a great love story…they are also a crazy love story which is why I love them.

Carter is the doctor of the family who can heal and had helped the family numerous times even knowing it will drain him.  When he is working at the ER, he sees a beautiful girl bring her boyfriend in to get help for a dog bite……that is not a dog bite but a lycan bite!!!

Vanessa is starting to notice some strange happenings in the town but can’t figure it out.  She starts to think she is going crazy especially when her neighbor is bitten by a dog but that sure doesn’t seem like a dog bite plus the bite seems to be healing way sooner than it should be???

Carter and Vanessa both can’t keep the other out of their minds or fantasies.  He is sad she has a boyfriend, and she is sad she didn’t get his name or to see him one last time.  When Brandy and Serena meet Vanessa and Ethan sticks his gifts in Carters mind…the two are soon reunited.

Carter and Vanessa have to overcome a lot like her learning about the paranormal world she is now a part of plus discovering her best friend since childhood is a werewolf….girl is having a hard time.  But Carter is there to kiss and make it all better *Wink*

We do have some things to learn liiiiike…who I after Vanessa and why?   Does Vanessa have some witch DNA in her genes?  We also get a look at more of Peter’s pack and boy o boy am I ready to read those books!!

AJ Renee loves to write steamy romance with a happily ever after. When she isn’t writing or interacting with her readers, you can find her spending time with her family or reading.

She graduated from the University of Central Florida with her Masters of Science in Criminal Justice and a Bachelors of Science in Psychology.

Review of Mary Martel’s story by Twinsie Angie

Charmed by Mary Martel

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

Mary…girl your stories…what is in that head of yours????  I don’t know but keep with the crazy, fucked-up, sexy as sin, and delicious alpha stories you seem to come up with.

This story is about Clover who has had a wee bit of trauma in her life. She ran for fear of what might happen but now knows its time to return to face her past and help her pack.  Her father, the pack alpha, always knew she would return and had 3 of the sexiest wolves ready to back her upon arrival.  When Clover arrives with little Rosie everyone freaks and soon secrets begin to spill.  Clover is now having to defend her pack from a rival while also slowing her libido down over these 3 sexy guards.

This is another solid story from Mary, and I would love to see more from Clover especially if they spill over into Ariel’s series like the Salt and Pepper Twins did in this novella!!

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

#WOTR21 – #Review – The Only Sorceress by Anya Breton

Self-proclaimed sorceress Kora Walsh knows exactly how to use her shiny new MBA. She’ll open a new age shop in a colony of the country’s most powerful witches. But the town rife with bigots doesn’t want her or her sleek shop tainting their perfect community.

Kora would leave if she had any choice in the matter. She’s trained from childhood for her true task—infiltrating coven leadership as her mother’s mole. Failure to do her familial duty is not an option, not when her childhood nemesis is assured her failed soul for an eternity of torture.

And thanks to the colony’s loudest supporter, the beautiful Desmond Marino, failure is a very real danger.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I absolutely love this story! Kora is the daughter of the goddess of magic, but she is half human. What does that mean for her? Yep, she must live topside with all of us humans….and shifters, witches, and vampires, oh my! Since she is half human and has to live with all of us mere humans, she has to work and make a living. On top of that, she has to do “odd” jobs for her mother that include being dropped in strange places to stop rogue witches from doing crazy things. Her most recent mission is to infiltrate the leaders of Wipuk, a secret society of supernaturals. She is up against the odds with all sorts of different creatures all while trying to open her very own “Rarities” store. Kora is an awesome and quirky character who gets put in the middle of some really strange and bizarre situations. But how she handles these is epic. She is sarcastic and witty. It is these characteristics that keep everyone around her on their toes all while keeping you engrossed in the story. Kora’s story is exciting and engaging. I cannot wait to continue this journey.

Anya Breton

Anya Breton is a web monkey with an obsession for nail polish and rubber chickens. Her fears include Peeps and people who hate clowns. Her genres include erotic romance, urban fantasy, and young adult–all with a little quirk. She lives in the Midwest where land is cheap and corn is cheaper.

#WOTR21 #ThrowbackReview #Paranormal – Baiting a Berserker by Savannah Verte

Baiting a Berserker (Paranormal Dating Agency Kindle Worlds)

Addian Hevir doesn’t want a mate, he needs one…to save his clan, and himself before the beast within consumes what’s left of his humanity. As a berserker, it’s only a matter of time before one, or both happen. Time is perilously short.
Fynn Barrow has had more than her share of Mr. Wrongs. A strong, independent Mer-woman, she’s not going to be content with just any man. She needs to be wanted by one who can meet her challenges in return. She’s not interested in playing the damsel in distress, or the dutiful housewife, to anyone.
Gerri confidently pairs them, but it only takes one meeting for them both to have doubts. Can two dominant personalities find the balance to come together before others interfere and send one to their death, and the other back to square one? Or, will it take the imminent threat to drive them where they need to be?

Goodreads

I purchased this book.

I have had the pleasure of knowing this author for a few years and was like I NEED TO READ HER…so I scrolled through her Goodreads list of books and this book just jumped out at me. I love Paranormal and I Love Shifters sooooo yup I one clicked it and jumped in.  I sat on my butt and devoured the book in one sitting.

I have not read a mermaid book, so I was excited to read about Flynn and the Lore in regard to mermaids.  I have read about a Berserker or two in paranormal books previously but something about Addain I liked.  I think the initial dinner failure was so awkward that I loved it…weird right???  Who loves to read that?  Oh, just me!!  LOL

Like Addain I think Mermaids are cute little sea creatures but hearing all about Mermaids and then seeing them in action…YIKES New found respect.  Flynn is a bad a$$ Lady who will protect what is hers and Addain is ALL Hers!!

Berserkers are pretty intense people.  Addain is not initially attracted to Flynn until he sees Her strength and command in situations.  Then he realized that maybe, just maybe, this mermaid can handle him and his clan.  Ya see, Addian needs to find a mate and find one soon or he will lose his clan to people trying to overthrow him.  The couple meet through a specialized dating match maker for paranormal beings.

The reading of their journey to them meeting, getting to know one another, mating and then protecting Addains station in the clan is a quick read but I really did enjoy it.  I would love to see Fil get a book because I feel as though she will be a riot!!

A lifelong lover of words and reading, Savannah Verte hasn’t quite figured out what she wants to write when she grows up. Born and raised in the upper Midwest, Savannah’s gypsy spirit and never quit attitude keep her busy and seldom idle. For so many reasons, Savannah considers herself a ‘Contemporary Vagabond’ when it comes to writing and hopes that others find her diverse offerings as enjoyable to read as they are to write.

As the primary owner and driving force behind Eclectic Bard Books she considers herself immensely fortunate to see writing from varied perspectives as she endeavors to publish the authors rostered there. Working with other writers, Savannah gets to expand her horizons every day as someone brings a new idea to the table and the brainstorming begins. There is something addictive about the creative process for her and helping other authors embrace their dreams make hers a reality daily.

That’s the official Savannah, the unofficial version is just this: a girl who loves experiencing life with every twist and turn it takes. When she was born, she had such fine, light hair that her mother used to tape bows to her head so people would know she was a girl. She’s had a host of crazy unrelated jobs- everything from cake decorator, dry cleaner, and insurance agent to Emergency Room assistant, bartender, crime lab tech and bouncer. Savannah loves air hockey but completely sucks at it. She loves good jazz, good scotch, and antiques but also old rock, a quiet tea, and a tidy home. She’s completely technology impaired and can get it after she’s broken the computer or done it ass-backwards a few times… Thank Gods that there are some amazing meme creators that let her pilfer images or she’d be lost. Lime green is her color, the rhinoceros is her logo & philosophy, and she’s completely mad about seeing new authors try.

Cursed Whispers by AJ Renee

Cursed Whispers (Broderick Coven Book 3)

Animals were Max Broderick’s life.

He wasn’t only a veterinarian. He spoke with animals, quite literally, on a daily basis.

He rescued a wolf on the verge of dying and was shocked beyond belief when she turned out to be a beautiful werewolf.

Claudia Lupita wanted two things: her daughter and as many miles as possible separating her and the monster who’d been holding them captive for years.

Determined to protect her, Max enlists help from his closest circle.

Can they overcome her past, or had she lived through too much to accept her mate?

Broderick Coven Series:
Cursed Love
Cursed Sight
Cursed Whispers
Cursed Touch
Cursed Luck

My 5 Star Review

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

I will admit. I was curious about Max and his gift to talk to animals. #DogLover I kinda figured he would be my absolute favorite of the Broderick family and I am right. Now if we are talking about the cast of characters in the series, Peter wins hands down, but Max is my favorite sibling.

Max is the sweetest guy who is still coming to terms with his family lineage and powers. He is troubled when he hears someone or something in the woods at Brandy’s baby shower. When he saves a wolf/woman. He is instantly bonded to her. He wants to do all he can to hep her without freaking her out at the same time. He is also freaked out at his reaction to this damaged woman but can’t not be near her.

Claudia is a warrior…that is the only way to describe what she endured and survived. She appreciated the soft and kind man but also had her walls up due to her belief all men are bad. When she sees him for what he really is, a gentleman, she learns to trust him but also worries about what she is feeling for him.

When Max and the pack vow to help her find her daughter and avenge her abuse, she is over her head with emotions for these people. Claudia slowly learns to heal and love while having the support of the pack and the Broderick family at her side.

I have to say this book is my favorite in the series so far. But man, Peter needs to find some love. I feel bad for the alpha. But I am excited for Carter’s book to be next!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Second and Short by Michel Prince

Second and Short: Book 2 of the Love by the Yard Series

Warning: For Mature Adult Audiences 18+. Contains language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.
In book two of Love by the Yard: Offensive linemen are considered the silent protectors of the game. Always expected to be there, but never seen by the fans. Whether by accident or circumstance, Dalton Gresham has been known as the Blood Thirsty Bear of the Gridiron since his rookie year. With fans wearing number seventy-seven with fake blood dripped on it, can this giant in football shake his monster status?
Having hidden away at Lost Lake, Wisconsin, the last thing Willeen Fire needed was publicity. The tall, voluptuous woman has a beauty she hides behind flannel shirts and engine grease while staying off the grid. When Dalton first meets Willeen, the last thing he thought was she was a woman in need of protection. But as he falls for her, the natural instinct to protect is screaming in his ears.
Can Dalton stop being the monster he’s been labeled and become the one who will finally save Willeen from the man hunting her?

My 5 star review 

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

The narrator was great in this book. Logan has narrated several books for Michel and I love his ability to change voices. His narration brings you into each story. You get lost in his voice and his reading of the stories.

Dalton was a favorite side character in book 1 so I was happy to see him get a book. Granted I thought he might hook up with Dani’s school friend after the way the two seemed to eye each other. Dalton is a gentle giant who is lost in his “persona” for the Chicago Grizzles. He wants to make a mark, but it seems they want the giant lineman to play a violent man when he is far from violent. When he gets injured, he is sent to cool his heels and recuperate from the injury. He starts off badly right at the start when he “ASSUMES” (we know not to do this right?) that Willie is an old redneck with a dirty flannel. He is stunned stupid when he finds out Willie is the hottie who is getting his cabin ready for his stay. The woman was his perfect size in height and curves.

Willie is enchanted by Dalton and his sweet character but can’t understand why everyone thinks he is an aggressive man. When he finds out his “character” she is surprised and helps him realize being himself is the best way to be. The two start to build a relationship but Willie is so scared of wanting more since she cannot give that. Willie has a past she fears and is frightened to find her.

When the two finally take a step forward, Willie’s past crashes into them. She makes a choice which Dalton is not a fan of but will do anything to get his girl. When you love someone today, tomorrow, forever…you can’t let them go.
Again, I love the fact Michel brings a gritty and vile bad guy to the story. Michel writes great bad guys that you hate and can’t wait to see get their butt kicked!! LOL

His One True Mate by Miranda Lynn

His One True Mate (The Night Shift Series Book 1)

Billionaire tech genius, Leo Lancaster is accustomed to hiding his truth behind mankind’s materialistic comforts.
But no more. The lion within him is on the prowl for a mate, and his primal instincts refuse to be ignored. Driven by his shifter side, he embarks on a journey across the globe to claim that fated bond.

Thankfully, he doesn’t have to venture far. Sauntering by in heels and a curve-hugging pencil skirt, everything about Katrina calls to him. To Leo’s great regret, she needs a bit of convincing.

Katrina Denmark is on the run from a past determined to destroy her.
By focusing her life on helping others, she battles to overcome the fears that haunt her. Finally, she’s starting to feel safe. In control. Until the lioness side of her begins aching to submit to Leo. Terrified of her own growing desires, Katrina is deliberating over whether to take a chance on Leo when the deranged monster she’s spent years trying to escape catches up to her.

With her life and freedom on the line, will Katrina allow Leo to stand beside with the ferocious love of a mate? Or will her own fears force her to face the looming darkness alone?

My 5 star review

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

This series is a MUST read for me….a PNR reader at the core. I love the characters and the way Miranda keeps the storyline fresh. Each book I feel she brings something new and some kinda new evil that the pack must overcome. This pack might be spread throughout the globe, but they are family through and through.

Oh Leo. He and his lion have been on my radar for a long time. We have watched him help Casey and her new pack. We know he helped Jerome build his pack but what about Leo?? When will he get his love and find happiness?? Well a certain therapist he secured for Casey’s pack seems to be the one who will give him all he needs and more….love, companionship, sass, and heartache. Yes, I said heartache.

Leo has A LOT to deal with in regard to Katerina AKA Kat. She is a broken woman who helps other broken women but never really looks to heal herself completely. Kat has been through some stuff and now when she thinks she has found a place to belong, along comes Leo making her lioness want MORE while her human side is petrified. Her experiences with alphas and mates have not been good. Casey and Mack are a strange concept given what she has seen growing up.

Kat’s father was a power-hungry alpha who treated the females in his pack terrible. What she endures is horrifying but her ability to escape and mend herself just enough to help others is amazing. However, Leo sets her off kilter and she soon is at war with herself over this alpha male. That hussy lioness in her sees Leo for all he is but her human side is so afraid she pushes.

Their story is full of chemistry and is action packed. When Kat’s past shows up and tries to ruin her future, she is a mess. Leo can’t handle the fact his mate is in fear and will do everything to protect what is his…his love…his future…his mate…HIS LIFE!!!

Friends, this book is seriously a perfect addition to the series. I am so excited at where it looks to be headed and ya’ll DJ is hella delicious!! Just saying. I said it first here!!!!

Dirty Crown by Mary Martel

Dirty Crown

I always held hope that the day I left the compound would be the day I found freedom.

I was wrong.
My future had never really belonged to me. My father laid claim to it the day I was born, and I had been a stupid, naïve girl to wish for anything different.

As the heir to my father’s immense empire, my crown sits heavily on my head as I navigate my way through dealings with the criminal world while trying to stay alive.

Unfortunately for me, my crown and my hands are forced to get dirty along the way. Thankfully, I’m not expected to do it alone. Roarke, my deadly bodyguard who’s been by my side since I was six, is my shadow and always will be. I also now have Alessio, the cold, tattooed hottie, Roman, who conceals everything with fakeness that comes far too easily for him, and the alluring but sweet brothers, Tito and Enzo.

When bullets start flying, and people begin dying, my five guys not only stand behind me as the queen of their empire, but they also prove they have every right to be there by getting their hands just as dirty as my own.

Dirty Crown is a full-length, standalone reverse harem novel. This book is recommended for readers 18+. It contains sexual situations, swearing, violence, and some dark themes. It also contains MM as well as MFM.

My 5 star review

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

I am a Mary whore. I will read all she writes because they are dark, gritty, bloody, sexy as fuck, hilarious, and wrong all at the damn same time. I think I need therapy, but her books are all I ever  want in life. The crazier the character, the more I love them. The more broken the male, the more I need to have them in my stash of book boyfriends. This group of men do not disappoint…broke, alpha, arrogant, and sexy as hell men dominate Vallie’s life.

Valentina has had a life of squalor with her bodyguard Roarke to protect her in this compound. Her father is THE Mafia boss, and he loves her so much he treats her terrible. One day she is sprung from her hell to be thrust into a new roll…his puppet with his picked “husbands” for her. Yes, plural husbands. She is not willing to play his puppet, but she goes along with it until she and Roarke can figure it all out. When absolute chaos ensues, she becomes the head of THE FAMILY with her men. Friends, there is a grenade scene that absolutely cracked me up…..I mean I had mad Boss Bitch Vibes all day long for Vallie.

I loved all of her men. Roarke is delicious as her boytoy/bodyguard/lover. Enzo is the sweet one who is just as deadly who enjoys time with Roarke as well as Vallie. Roman with his crazy laughter and boy next door charm who is also scary as hell. Alessio who rules the house and the guards with brute force only we could love. Tito is a bit of mess who needs to figure stuff out but his love for Vallie is never ever to be questioned. But I did wanna nut punch him a time or two. However, If I could also see a Hawk enter this harem, it would be day made but I don’t think the MC President would be willing to share with the guys…darn. I guess just being her bestie will have to do.

This book has so much going on and I loved all the violence and grit, but all the sexy time was just as delicious!!! If you’re a Mary fan this will make your list for sure!!!

Compromised by H.R. Savage

COMPROMISED: An Adult Post-Apocalyptic Romance (Ruins of Playa Azul Book 2)

We left our home in a blaze of fire…

Gunner and I clung to the hope that we were leading our group to safety. However, in the unfamiliar mountains we find something we weren’t expecting–a hidden group of people…and someone I thought was dead.

Creekside Camp offers the promise of new beginnings for our injured and hungry people, and Gunner and I are thrust into a new normal. The idea of an ordinary life with him hung in front of me like the proverbial carrot.

But secrets threaten to unravel our tentative happiness and we are suddenly confronted with threats from not only the dead–but the living as well.

Will Gunner and I finally get a chance toward happiness? Or will the secrets compromise everything we’ve worked so hard for?

NOTE: COMPROMISED is the second book in the Ruins of Playa Azul duet. You MUST read CAPTURED prior to understand the plot and characters.

My 5 star review

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

GGGGIIIIIRRRRL and Boys was I excited for this book!! I love Zombies and book 1 blew me right out of the damn water. I have been on pins and needles waiting for this book!!!

Ok look Gunnar….Can I just say I get why Thea was on him as often as possible because DAYUM he is all that and a bag of chips. He is the most deliciously alpha male in this book series. No offense Jason buuuut your small potatoes.
Thea is the bad ass chick you wanna have as your bestie if the world goes to crap. She is the tough as nails person who will hug you and smack you upside the head to get your butt in gear and move.

The book starts up right where book 1 ended. The rag tag team of misfits are trying to get to the mountains after defeating the bad peoples…ok monsters…in book 1. Bad people are way too light of a term for them. They stumble into an unprotected camp and Thea’s past is in her face before she knows it. Talk about crazy and hard. The leader of the new camp is friendly but…uhm…how do I say it…a sexist pig?? *GRUNT* Women do women’s work, and the manly man protect the little women folk. *GRUNT* So yeah if you get the drift on Thea that doesn’t go well with her…LOL LAWD do not get me started on VI!! BAHAHAHA She is a load of crazy and I love her so much.

When Gunnar and Thea are attacked by someone in the camp…yeah tense is a word you can use to describe the next few chapters. Finding out that there is a secret that has been withheld from the camp is also something they have to deal with and decide what to do.

I am going to always hope for more from this series because I love zombies!! But Jason and Vi…Come on…a little novella. I need to know how she wormed her way into his broken heart!!

AJ Renee loves to write steamy romance with a happily ever after. When she isn’t writing or interacting with her readers, you can find her spending time with her family or reading.

Author H.R. Savage started reading romance at an age that made her father cringe as she tried to hide the cover behind her hands. She technically finished writing her first book in Junior High, where it mysteriously disappeared in a reformatting incident. Due to the encouragement of her English teachers at her small town school in La Verne, California, she never lost her love for the art. Now a woman who swears by the power of coffee, Chinese food, and wine (not necessarily in that order), she decided it was time to create stories from the characters in her head.

When she isn’t writing, outlining, or pinning pictures of hot ‘character inspirations’ on Pinterest™, she is spending time with her three beautiful children and handsome husband.

Book Cover

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever.

I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.

Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.

But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.

***This novella originally appeared in the Three Southern Beaches collection released July of 2014. This is an extended version of that story.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the 3book/audio whisper-sync off Amazon.

DUDE first up.  I know the book would have been a riot but the narration by Holly made it a million times better.  She was killllling me with her infections and voices. This book was written for her to narrate.

This novella is the start of an amazing series about a pack of Weres in Hung, Alabama.  LOL  yup that is the name of the town.  Essie loves her pack alpha Hank but he is a cheating prick so she packs up and moves on.  While she is off discovering herself, she joins the WTF…yup that is the name of the group she joins.

The WTF send her on assignment to uncover some missing Were girls.  She now has to deal with Hank, the cheating ex and the cast of side characters who are helping her uncover the missing pack.  The side characters of Essie’s gay 300 year old vampire bestie, her old grannie, Hank’s man whore pretty but stupid (or is he) brother Junior plus so many more.  Seriously Junior, I can’t wait for his book and for his secret to come out.

Seriously the story made me giggle so much.  I had a hard time stopping my audio to actually do work for the day.  I can’t wait for more in the series and am so excited to see what happens with the characters since book 2 is a more to Essie and Hank before moving on to another couple.

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.

#WOTR21 #Paranormal #RH #Vampire – Rose, Jewels Cafe #12 by Jewels Arthur

Rose: A Standalone Paranormal Romance (Jewels Cafe Book 12) by [Jewels Arthur, Silver Springs Library]

Meet Rosalie, or Rose for short, she is a gorgeous plus sized heroine who is about to get mixed up in a whole ‘nother world!

Rose has a night job at a bar in Silver Springs called Vee. She loves it because it gives her freedom, free drinks every night, and she gets to spend time with the 3 oh so sexy owners of the bar.

What Rose doesn’t know is that these guys have a dark and dangerous secret and the bar she works at isn’t quite what it seems.

Rose’s attraction to these guys is strong but she thinks she has no chance. The guys are drawn to Rose but they know they could never date a human. Insert one magical PSL then Rose’s world is flipped upside down.

Rose is a standalone reverse harem romance.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.
This was my first book by this author. I grabbed it because she was attending a book signing I was going to be attending. New author to me is exciting right???!!!
The book is about Rose who lives in a super natural town but she is unaware since she s just a human. She works for 3 hottie brothers…er..vampires and lusts over then nightly. She knows they aren’t interested in her that way or are they?
Sebastian, Dean, and Finn have lusted over the curvy and sassy bartender since they met her. Their pull to her is getting strong by the day but they know they can’t have her. It would be unfair to her to either change her or watch her die while they stayed young and vibrant. The men all of a sudden see another vampire taking interest and their world turns upside down.
When Jason, an attractive man, chats up Rose and then kidnaps Rose everything she knew about the world is suddenly changed. She soon learns of her new life and all about her bosses. Rose is going to do everything to get back to the brothers and hope they will accept the new version of her.
I liked the story but I admit the narration was not my favorite so at times I would turn the story off. The inflections fell flat at times. A narrator’s voice can really make or break a story. There were times I felt like she was reading an essay because there just wasn’t any emotion in the “book”.
I did like the story but wonder if my enjoyment would have been hirer with reading vs the audio book to be honest.

Jewels Arthur has lived in Central Illinois her entire life, she is a small town girl at heart and is terrified of city life. She grew up on a farm with 27 barn cats, video games, movies, and books to keep her company. She is obsessed with romance and swoon. Especially the paranormal type — humans are truly overrated.

As a hopeless romantic she wants everyone around her to be in love and wants to read about love all the time. She got married at 19 (suprise suprise) and she had a beautiful baby girl 3 years later when she finished college. She graduated college with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies. Her obsession with love led her to decide that she needed to write her own swoony books, with a bit of dirty of course 😉
