#WOTR – #Review – The Amalgam (The Aberration Book 1) by Michel Prince

The Amalgam (The Aberration Book 1)

Genetics, radioactive spiders, mutation following tainted energy drinks. No one knows what triggered teens to suddenly get powers. Abilities emerge, first sought, then destroying lives with only one link between those effected. Their birthdays all end in double zeroes.

Riley Weston wished he could be an awkward kid in high school, but life had other plans. The Aberration Laws made all around him suspect, until the wheel of fate turned to point her arrow at him.

At first being labeled an Aberration would get you locked away for the greater good. When it was discovered children born in the year two-thousand are the only ones getting powers, no one is immune. Even if your powers have yet to emerge. The government is set on owning all those in possession of abilities.

For Riley, a camp, ran by Aberrations, hides, trains, and keeps them safe. But the world wants their powers. To meld them into a force no army could defeat. Riley, and those like him, now walk the world scared, angry and afraid. Which is not the combo you want with unlimited powers.

Can Riley learn to control his gift before outside forces find him? Or before inside sources give away more than just him, but the whole camp.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Did you read the blurb?! Mutations, aberrations, genetics….YA Sci Fi? Sign me up! This is something straight out of a superhero comic! I live for this stuff! This story is an intricately woven fantastical tale that never leaves you with a dull moment. Right from the jump, Riley’s house is being searched and he is in a sort of panic room or safe room. He has been forced to live in secrecy for fear of being taken to a type of detainment camp to be experimented on. The time has come for him to secretly be taken to a secret camp with others like him. His mom and dad basically have to smuggle him out and make a secret trade for this to happen. All hell breaks loose and Riley is swept away to the camp. Only, it’s not exactly a camp. This is a massive center with tons of others that are “special” like him and others that are “normal” with no powers. He quickly finds out that not everyone can be trusted. And as his power starts coming to fruition. Only he finds that he doesn’t have just one power like the other aberrations,  but multiple. Now we have a teenage boy that has been thrust into a crazy situation that he is trying to navigate, he needs to learn his powers, all while being scared and confused. This is a dangerous combo. But wait, there’s more! He finds an incredible group of friends that he can absolutely rely on but when you are told that you may be “the one”…How are you supposed to react?! And don’t forget, we still don’t know who to trust. 

There is an incredible explanation as to why these kids have powers. The way that these teens figure it out and explain it, brings a historical type of element to this book. Gods and goddesses from way back when could all be part of who they are today. And when stuff really starts to go haywire, the truth starts coming out with even more twists coming your way. 

Seriously, if you need something different to shake things up, this is the book that will do it for you. I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the sequel. Bravo, Ms. Prince! Loved it!

#WOTR21 – #Review – The Amulets by J. Lawson

The Amulets (The Amulets Trilogy #1)

A centuries-old war, a lineage of magic thought long dead, and a girl desperately struggling to find her place.

Jordan has a secret; one that’s kept her intentionally antisocial. So, when new girl Georgia moves to town and begins working at the same bookstore, she is naturally apprehensive. Yet, discovering their unanticipated connection makes her question everything she’s ever believed.

When they discover unusual happenings linked to the old mill, they along with Sawyer, handsome grandson of the town crank, find themselves forced to investigate a potentially evil source of conflict threatening the safety of their town. Will Jordan and Georgia’s common gifts, along with Sawyer’s courage and charm, be enough to get the answers they need to save the town? Or does letting yourself care just mean you have more to lose?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Who says we need less dreamers and more concrete intellects? Jordan’s boss! Psh! First, I love that our main character works in a bookstore and promotes fantasy books, just saying. The Amulets, for me, was a pure and wholesome young adult book. It was very sweet. Jordan is a shape-shifter and has kept this secret for many years. She is afraid if she gets close to someone that she will ultimately lose them because they won’t understand. This is something she struggles with throughout the story. Their small town is truly a small town. Everyone knows everyone and you only fall into a few different categories with school and work. And, if you make it out, you don’t come back. Until Georgia shows up one day to work at the same store as Jordan. These two are definitely kindred spirits and you can feel the bond forming right from jump. Their friendship is something most of us wish we had. Then we have Sawyer, a super cute guy who brings them coffee! Score! Jordan and Georgia are both shapeshifters and Sawyer is not. The secrets now become very delicate. On top of this, the town has lost their dang mind! This causes the trio to do some investigative work which ends up getting really hairy in the end. And when I say hairy, I truly mean hairy. Reality can be just as crazy as the stuff people imagine. 

The story started a bit slow for me but I think with this being the first in the trilogy the world building was needed. It is super sweet too. No swearing and no crazy make-out sessions. There are a couple kisses shared between Jordan and Sawyer, and they were perfect. I definitely think that this is geared toward a younger YA group. Once the story got moving, it was hard to put down. And now that I reached the end I need to know what happens next.

#Review – Rebellious and Reckless by Michelle A. Valentine

Rebellious and Reckless (Campus Hotshots #1)

He’s Rebellious in the ring and Reckless in Love.

Sky Cold knows exactly what she wants, and it’s Luke Finnegan, the college campus star quarterback. The only problem is she’s not even a blip on his radar. In order to get noticed by her crush, she’s willing to exchange the extra bedroom in her apartment to Luke’s tattooed, older brother to find a way into his social circle.

Baker Finnegan is determined to get out of his father’s shadow and do things his way. When he falls on hard times, and the sexy, slightly nerdy co-ed Sky offers him a place to live in exchange for a fake friendship, he can’t pass up the opportunity. But when Baker quickly realizes the only match he wants to make for Sky is one with himself, he has to convince her to look past his reckless ways.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Sweet torture and a glutton for punishment. Life isn’t perfect and we don’t always get what we think we need. Think, being the key word. Things never seem to go the way you want but in the end it just works. The story is a bit on the cliche’ side because ultimately we have a nerdy type of girl who essentially has a makeover and then gets the attention of the hot guy. Only in this story, she has the attention of two brothers…both are hot in their own ways. Sky gets Baker to agree to help her get a date with his brother, Luke. Then the fun starts! Baker moves in with Sky as part of the deal. But then they start to get close. Both of them have secrets…and both involve part of their family. These secrets are most definitely not cliche’. You seriously need to read this.  As things continue to unfold they can’t deny the pull that they have between each other but Sky still can’t decide if she wants Luke or if she is falling in love with Baker. 

“Do you have your Finnegans confused?” This is one of my favorite lines because this sums Sky up completely!

We have the hot jock, the rebel fighter, and the sweet librarian. All of the makings of a romantic comedy that will keep you turning the pages. Even though some of the story is cliche’, it is still a fun read with its own twist. And that makes it a must read!

#Review – Dawn of Genesis (Titan Code Book 1) by Rey Clark

Dawn of Genesis (Titan Code Book 1) by [Rey Clark]

Soft Science Fiction Cygnus International Award Finalist.

Tessa is forced to make a choice on which side has humanity’s best interests in mind. She begins to realize the greedy and destructive nature of humanity and the possibility that neither side is righteous, and both are corrupted by power.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

The story starts out with a bang and the action continues clear to the end of the book. Tessa lives in a post apoc world on a ravaged earth where everyone is just trying to survive. The basic humans try to do their part and lay low so as not to bring down the wrath of the Evos, the superhumans, who stopped taking orders from us lowly humans a long time ago. Tessa is pushed to the brink when an Evo attacks her school and her sister is missing. She and her best friends are put in the middle of a fight trying to save her sister and Tessa finds she may have some abilities of her own. She then gets to meet some other Evos who are trying to bring the bad Evos down so that everyone can live in harmony. She feels that she is being manipulated for her powers and this causes her to struggle with figuring out where she belongs in this crazy new world. 

The story was written well with good world building and a great story line. There is also the political component that lurks in the midst of the story. Each side thinks they are right and Tessa has to figure out where she belongs or if she tries to run from them both. There were quite a few typos in the book and some areas were a little difficult to read because of this. Overall the story was great and definitely has me intrigued. A solid 4 stars.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

So I finished this book and I have to say I sat on it for a bit before writing my review.  My thoughts were all over the place.

Randi…she is a HOT MESS!!  I mean she has 2 kids, 2 baby daddies, a F*&^ Buddy, Assistant manager of a video store, trying to go to school, parents who make her feel bad, strapped for cash, an abusive ex…..need I go on?  She is literally hanging on by a thread.  When she gets a call that will change her life.  Her daughter, Sarah, in 6th grade has “Changed”.  Randi feels terrible being wrapped up in her own head and life she didn’t notice this about her daughter.  Randi enrolls Sarah in therapy but still had massive guilt.  She begins to question her own abilities to be a good mother.  Hasn’t every mother questioned themselves?  Hasn’t every mother done what they thought was for the best to then think they messed up?  Well, that is Randi.  She is living a controlled chaos of a life, but everything is starting to fall apart.

Justin is a player and the perfect distraction for Randi.  She knows the kids like him, and they aren’t exclusive, by any means, but he was something for HER.  When things with Sarah happen Randi and Justin call it quits but she is sad by the loss.  When Justin pops back in we see maybe there is more to him then just a good time guy.  Could he want more?  But like I said Randi is a mess and makes stupid choices and has lots of regrets.

When things come to light about her daughter we see more guilt and pain. But we see Sarah opening up.  Which as a mom isn’t that what we want?  To remove the pain from our child??  To help our kiddos be the best of them??

If you’re a fan of Jade’s books I think you will see this is a departure from her regular writing. It’s a bit more of the inner conflict we, as women, moms, lovers, etc feel when life is pulling us in every direction but the one we want to take.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

Received a copy of this book for an honest review.

my head is spinning after this one. Not a typical Jade book but I have to say I was not sure what was going to happen in this book.

Randy is a hot mess express mom. She’s single mom of two, a son in elementary and a daughter in sixth grade in middle School, and not handling things well. Randy works full-time raising the kids and goes to college. Randy has a best friend/f-buddy, Justin. Things are going on with Randy daughter that is pulling most of her attention. She leans on Justin for support but not too much because he has commitments issues himself. Randy breaks things off with Justin when Sarah starts acting out. When Randy realizes she needs Justin to talk to we start to see a new side of him.

My heart goes out to Randy and her daughter when we find out what Sarah is going through. This has a true life feel to it. Single mom holding on by a thread only to realize it’s unraveling at the other end too.  It’s a great thing when Sarah opens up and Randy finds out what’s going on. I like that Randy comes to a realization that her parents only want the same thing for her that she wants for Sarah.

#WOTR21 – #Review – Order of Truth (The Order Series Book 4) by Lisa Caviness

Order of Truth (The Order Series Book 4) by [Lisa Caviness]

When an attorney’s violent family history reemerges along with the one man who broke her heart, she must summon the courage to survive.

Both a victim and a witness…

Haunted by her family’s criminal organization, The Order, and her own kidnapping encounters, lawyer Lila Caldwell copes by immersing herself in her practice. But her career stalls when her mentor’s dying words send her on a quest for secret documents that could save her life.

An unwitting pawn…

Upon learning of his new employer’s involvement in evil spy games, computer scientist Cody Green believes The Order is responsible for the dirty deeds but to prove it means he has to risk not only his life but the woman he reluctantly left behind.

Lila and Cody’s lives converge in a tangled web of romance and deadly plots. Soon, they discover they’ve been caught in a trap, and the only way out is to engage in a dangerous game to take down The Order…

Or die trying…

When truth shines a light, beware of the shadows

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Oh, the suspense! This whole series has been crazy intense. I really enjoy how this story followed Lila and Cody into adulthood. In the last book they were the best of friends and I hoped that they would both continue together and be happy. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. The world is full of all types of evil. People in general are crazy and the Sinclair’s put the icing on the cake! Unfortunately the turmoil that the Sinclair’s started is still in full swing. Lila is an attorney now, and Cody is an IT guru. They are both continuing to work against The Order with characters from the past books from this series. People are getting murdered, lives are being threatened, and we have to go back to some of our old ways in order to stop them. The lies and deceit have not stopped and are intricately woven throughout this rollercoaster of a story. There are so many moving parts that you don’t know if you need to look left or right. And in the midst of the insanity, Lila and Cody are finding each other again (swoon). One of my favorite things about this series is that it is so unpredictable, and this one is no exception. An old enemy surfaces and will make your jaw drop. Rooting for our favorite heroes will keep you on your toes as you turn each suspenseful page and will keep your heart pounding all the way to the end. Order of Truth was the perfect finish to this series. Bravo!

#WOTR21 – #Review – Death Match: A Michele Shepard Story (The True Death Series #7) by R.K. Gleason

Death Match: A Michele Shepard Story (The True Death Series Book 7) by [R.K.  Gleason]

Human beings aren’t the only creatures, in all the planes of existence, threatened by change and fear the unknown. Horace’s recent confrontations with ‘superior beings’ and the unusual circumstances of Niki’s pregnancy have placed a bounty on both their heads. That is, unless Jehna can broker a deal that ensures everyone involved has something to lose, without tearing the group of friends apart.

As the details of the blood-contract unfold, it becomes increasingly obvious it’s not ‘if’ the agreement will be broken, but when…

What will it mean for Horace and Niki when the lines are crossed, not to mention Shepard and their angelic allies? Will their enemies finally be able to swing the axe they’ve been grinding for centuries?

Which of the friends will fall under the heavy blade of revenge, and who will be left standing at the end of… Death Match?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Death Match is all sorts of sideways, full of “it’ll be fun”, enthusiastic consumption, and being uppercase FUCKED! This is one of my favorite books in this series but not for the same reasons I enjoyed the others. In the other books, there was a lot of crazy gore and crude humor that made the books ‘off the wall’ enjoyable for me. This one though, a lot of people matured and really grew as characters and more of a familial unit. Our ragtag band of misfits is in a world of trouble. Lives will be taken, some spared, and all in the name of what exactly? Even a sliver of God can make a loophole. The guys all band together and keep to the contract that Jehna laid out while constantly being surprised when they learn of another important piece of the contract. As the story unfolds it will pull at your heartstrings but also keeps you on your toes with the action and wit that I am sure will never go away with this group. I am going to patiently wait for the next installment in this series. In the meantime, I am going to read Bob’s book, Savaged. On the other hand, I really miss Shepard and Horace. I can’t wait to see what trouble the gang can get into next!

I was born high in the Andes and raised by a band of wandering gypsies. At the ripe old age of 7, I struck out on my own, dabbling in the arts of alchemy and personal financing. Neither of the trades paid off. At 13 I became the personal juggler for Stephen King, but alas, that didn’t last long either. Since then, I’ve wandered aimlessly through life and this planet, stopping along the way to help people and smite the wicked.

A little while ago I decided to try my hand at writing. I published The True Death series independently in 2015 and currently have twelve books published to date.

#WOTR21 – #NewRelease – #Review – What a Dragon Wants by Ava Cuvay

What a Dragon Wants by [Ava Cuvay]

Viking dragon-shifter Ty Drekison relocates to LA from his Minnesota clan in preparation to battle the awakening of Níðhöggr, Destroyer of the World. But he can’t stay away from the delicious cuisine of his new favorite Chinese restaurant, or its beautiful owner, who whets his hunger. He can’t seem to say the right things around her, and he certainly can’t reveal his shifter abilities. But with a grim prophesy threatening the fate of the world, can he be blamed for seeking moments of sweet release with her… in bed?

Wu Lin’s newest loyal customer is a sexy Nordic god of a man who makes her inner dragon stand up and beg for bread and butter. She’d give up her family’s red bean bun recipe to get a peek at his mighty hammer, but she’s the last dragon-shifter of her clan, and her time and energy must be focused on the upcoming battle against the demon monster Móshen who is prophesized to demolish the Earth. Even so, Ty complements her in every way. Could it be she has found the yang to her yin… in bed?

This 33K novella is one in the Star of the North Dragon series, which can be read in any order or as standalone novellas.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

What a Dragon Wants, you ask? Fortune cookies and to save the world! I love how this author took two different cultures and intricately weaved them together in such a way that created a truly unique story. Ty is of Viking heritage and Lin is of Chinese heritage. Turns out that both have dragon shifters in their history and both have been prophesied to fight a monster who will try and destroy the world. Ty and Lin both carry a heavy burden. The difference is that Ty has his family to help carry this burden and Lin believes she is the last of her kind. Ty and Lin’s story starts as a slow burn but when they come together, they ignite like something fierce. What they find is a love like no other and a passion that may possibly save the world. There is a delicate push and pull with these two that will have you rooting for them to the very end. 

“I’m not a delicate flower that’s going to wilt. In fact, maybe I am a superhero assassin.”

“We are opposites Black dragon, white dragon; water and fire; Yin and Yang. A complete whole. Out of primal chaos, the universe creates itself, organizes into cycles. Life and death, good and bad, push and pull.”

True to this author’s writing fashion, there is lots of action, with tons of wit and snark, but a hawt and passionate love story woven within. These two are so different but so made for each other. It is hard not to have a crazy case of the feels for them. The beautiful part to this is that Ty’s brothers are getting their own stories! Can’t wait!

Ava Cuvay

Ava Cuvay writes out of this world romance featuring sassy heroines, often-alien-but-always-sexy heroes, and an alcoholic beverage or two… Set in a galaxy far, far away. She resides in central Indiana, USA with her own scruffy-looking nerfherder, kiddos who are growing up without her permission, and two kitties that make her laugh. She believes life is too short to bother with negative people, everything is better with Champagne, and Han Solo shot first. When not writing, Ava is thinking about writing. Or wine. And she’s always thinking about bacon.

#WOTR21 – #Review – #NewRelease – Love Letters Lost by Miranda Lynn

Love Letters Lost (Suspenseful Seduction World)

Genni

Being back in my small hometown for Gran’s funeral sent me into a full-blown panic attack, and at that moment, a handsome stranger swooped in, becoming my salvation. From first glance, Brian made me weak in the knees with his commanding disposition and firm yet gentle touch. He pulled me in.

I took a chance on him…and all hell broke loose. Caught in the crosshairs of a mob war, I’m kidnapped for the sole purpose of being used as collateral in a power struggle I can’t begin to comprehend. I believed he would save me though. I needed to trust Brian to get me out of there and to introduce me to the enticing world of BDSM. Now, my life is in his hands as we battle against the clock to ensure my survival.

Brian

Visiting Illinois to catch up with an old friend was an ideal weekend…made far more delectable when I saw her. Genni was a damsel in distress who awoke my Dom side with a desperate need to protect her..to care for her..to guide her into my world.

But there is evil out there I can’t shield her from, and it ensnares her in its ominous web. With my family’s background in high-stakes security, I call them in to help me track down her kidnappers. One way or another, I will get her back alive, and I will never let her go again.

*Love Letters Lost is part of Samantha A. Cole’s Suspenseful Seduction World

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Love Letters Lost is all about ending a chapter in your life and taking a chance on starting the next great adventure. This is such a wonderful story that pulls at your heartstrings but also has plenty of action, suspense, wit… and of course some amazing sexy time! Genni comes home to take care of her gran’s funeral. She is a mess over her gran’s death. She is trying to put on a great facade but Brian, a handsome sweet talking stranger, swoops in just at the right time to save her from herself. These two meet under not the greatest of circumstances but connect immediately and can’t stop thinking about each other. As these two start to get closer, an old friend decides to show his true colors and all sorts of truths start coming out of the woodwork. Including a secret about Brian being a Dom. An epic sh!tsh#w is going down and Genni is right in the middle. There is some fighting, some kidnapping, and some loving happening in what seems like the snap of a finger. Genni’s mind is whirling while all this is going on and trying to process Brian’s BDSM background. She is not sure if this is something she can get on board with, but also is in it a little too deep and not sure if she can just leave Brian alone. Thank the gods she decides to follow her heart (like her gran told her to) as she decides she needs to keep Brian and give this a try. 

This is a beautiful love story with all the right elements to keep you on your toes. One thing that I really loved about this story is that the only information that Genni had about the BDSM lifestyle is from what she read in romance novels but this author does an amazing job of describing the lifestyle and giving glimpses of the scenes without the story being consumed with sex. The story itself pulls you in with a deathgrip until you read the last page. All the rest is a bonus! 

Miranda Lynn

Escaping reality one book at a time has been Miranda’s motto since she learned to read. As an only child raised on a dairy farm her creative imagination brought words to life. She devoured more books growing up than her little town bookmobile could handle. It was inevitable that she would turn from reading them to writing them. This is her way to help not only herself but others escape the day to day drudge. Her books may take you on a journey through time, give you a look inside a fantasy realm, or delve into the magic of almost anything paranormal. Threading in heart stopping romance and dropping an occasional super sexy scene just to keep you on your toes.

Miranda’s stories are focused around strong female leads and sexy males who appreciate them. She strives to encourage her readers that they can have it all in real life too.
You can find her most days either subbing at the local high school or tucked away in her office working on the next story with a cup of java in her hand. She loves connecting with her readers online as well as in real life so make sure to find her on Facebook and check out where she will be signing throughout the year on her website.
