Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Where oh where do i begin this is the beginning of one of my favorite series, Kendall had a rough childhood having been taken from her parents in a good way she went to live with her nana and gramps which she loved because she knew she was safe. When Nana got sick they had to move into a trailer and there she met the VanPelts Brian, Casey and Will they became best friends and those 3 boys became very protective over Kendall. They keep close through out the years and plan to move to California after Kendall and Will graduate and live happily ever after. Well until a fateful night that took Kendalls future from her and left her empty and heartbroken. Ugh this book is exactly what i needed and broke my heart all over again. But to have Brian meet a few members of the quad was the perfect scene of past and future being together without knowing. Ugh i need so much more. 

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at a state park.

VanPelts (White Trash Trilogy) by [Brandy Slaven]

Life is full of ups and downs. No one knows this better than Kendall Davis. She unfortunately learns from a young age that good things never last. With an unbearable childhood and then the death of her grandmother, Kendall turns to the only people who seem to know she still exists. Brian, Casey, and Will. But as all things tend to go in her life, they too are struck with tragedy. In her grief, Kendall decides to end it all, but what happens when fate has other plans? With no happy end in sight, she must learn to live with the loss and eventually learn to never give up on love.

**Trigger Warning**

This story does mention self-harm and does NOT have a happy ending. If you can stick it out with Kendall’s terribly sad beginning, be sure to catch her second chance at love in the White Trash Trilogy.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I am a HUGE Kendall lover so getting this Prequel was what my heart needed.  I needed to feel the heart break for Kendall so make her eventual HEA with The Quad all that better.  If you have read Kendall’s series, you KNOW the VanPelts were her first love and they were taken away.  This novella gave us everything we needed to be in Kendall’s POV before she meets them.  We get to experience her loss of her loved Nana and man was that a rough one.  I had a few tears rolling down my face then.  We get to see her Gramps deteriorating after Nana’s loss but we get to meet Brian, Casey, and Will.

This book may only be 8 chapters, but it is filled to the brim with everything we need for the complete story of the boys and their girl.  I gotta admit I loved seeing The Quad pop up in the book and knowing Brian lied them, made it even sweeter to know these are the guys who will take care of their girl in the end.

If you are a fan of the series, you will absolutely need this book in your life and on your shelf.

#wotr #partofaseries Till Death Do Us Part (Ariel Kimber 7) by Mary Martel  

Ariel Kimber and her coven are under imminent threat from the Council. They are monsters, without fangs or horns, who hide behind their mantle of power, and they will do anything to get what they want.

The problem is, they want Ariel. They want her so badly that every other person around her is in danger just by being near her.

The Council forgot one very important fact though—Ariel Kimber is no victim. She’s a survivor, and the Council is stupid to think they can simply take her and destroy everything and everyone she loves.

She will do whatever it takes to keep her coven safe, even if she has to go through hell to do it. They are all more than willing to fight alongside her because she’s finally agreed to spend the rest of her life tied to them in every way possible.

They have a lot to fight for.

The goal is to make it to the other side without losing anyone along the way because they want their happily ever after.

And they want to be able to say till death do us part.

But life for Ariel Kimber is never that easy.

And it never will be

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

Once again we are back with my favorite coven of witches, Ariel and her coven have fought through a lot to keep their family save and even adding a few members to their family they weren’t expecting to. Well it was finally Ariel’s 18th birthday and the guys and her father were not going to let her not celebrate it after years of not being able to celebrate it. With things finally calming down Ariel couldn’t help but feel like something was going to happen but she just didn’t know when but something bad was coming. The Council was still leaking around ready to strike and when they did it was going to be big, but would they be able to pull it off. Would Ariel and the guys be able to protect their family from everything the Council was trying to take from them, will Quinton get Ariel down the isle, will the salt and pepper twins finally get some naked twister that they deserve there are so many answers that you just need to read to find. OMG Mary did not disappoint with this much awaited book I’m so glad to have this coven and world back I’ve had sooooo many fist pumps to the sky, its about times screamed, and are you serious while reading it. This makes my heart so happy and I’m ready for the next one.

#WOTR22 #Audio #Shifters #RH #7Mates – Outlaw, The Pack Prophecy #2 by R.L. Caulder, Narration by Heather Costa and Jeffrey Kafer

Outlaw (The Pack Prophecy Book 2) by [R.L. Caulder]

Behind every woman scorned is probably a person who made her that way. For me, it was more than one.

It was an entire pack.

I was exiled for exposing a murderous traitor. I was rejected by my mate, our bond shattered forever.

Even after being chosen by our goddess, my powers and title will never be enough for them to stand by me.

Now plagued by frequent and debilitating visions of battle and death, my mates and I must fight to assemble an army with no one but our goddess at our back.

Because war is coming, and not everyone will survive.

But I was chosen for a reason. I will lead an army if I must. I will stand in the gap and protect my people and their future, no matter what they’ve done. I will fulfill my prophecy.

Even if it means my death.

Author Note:. This book has a 18+ warning and is intended for mature audiences. It is book two in The Pack Prophecy series which will end in a cliffhanger.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the ebook and audio book.  I listened to the audio.

The narration by Heather and Jeffrey *Chef’s Kiss* they are the dream team!!  I admit I loved Jeffrey before this book but her and Heather make a perfect team!!

The first book ended, and we wanted to throat punch Jamieson.  How can you deny your fated mate??  Good think Kira has Milo and Seth on her side!! This book starts with as the 3 are on the run from Jace and their packmates.

Sophia helps us escape and we wonder who else is on our side.  To find out who was the helper made my heart soar.

The three spend most of the time on the run looking to make it to the Summit where all the alphas of alphas will be meeting.  They need to stop Jace and prepare the Summit for what will happen.  We soon learn that our girl Kira has more then 3 mates and that is quite a shock.  The rag tag pack also pick up a stray named Morgan who is just the sweetest pup who needs some love.

The story was a little bit slower then the original as we are building to get to the summit, finding some helpers to stop Jace and see what else the Prophetess needs to do to save the shifters.

This book ends on a cliff hanger and am waiting for book 3!  I can’t wait for more!

Firefly: A Contemporary Reverse Harem Romance by [K.B. Everly]

I was burning alive and didn’t even know it.

Until they rescued me…

My days are spent in the Burn Unit at the hospital I work as a nurse at, supporting those who have kissed the red hot flames that consumed their world and survived to tell the tale. Until the tables are turned and I am now the one in the hospital bed after being rescued by three firefighters.

Their silhouttes appeared in the darkest moment of my life, pulling me out of the shadows I had been living in. Now when I have nothing and no one, they insist I can lean on them.

I want to, I really want to, but how can I when the same person who burnt my house to the ground is running around the city leaving smoldering tributes in my name?

They want me. I want them. But he wants to consume me, just like his fires. Maybe I should let him so that I can protect them.

Then again, a firefly only knows to burn brighter the darker it gets.

**This is a Contemporary Reverse Harem Standalone with lots of fire, some laughs, and a whole lot of heat. Contains strong language**

Firefly by KB Everly

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

Its been a hot second since I have read anything by KB because like has been crazy for everyone.  This is the first book she has gotten out in awhile, so I jumped to get a copy.  I mean firefighters…scratch that….alpha hot fireman and a RH so #WhyChoose…I am on board.

I loved the premise of the book.  Sophia is caught in a fire when some tall dark drinks of water save her.  Intro said tall dark drinks of water Alden, Porter, and Daren.  These men jump in and help her at her worse.  They are there to kiss away the boo boos and kiss other things *wink*.

Sophia and her hotties are on the case to find out the why and more importantly the who in what happened to her.  I loved the plot twists and turns.  Each one had me more excited and wanted to see what happens!!!!!

I thought this was a great book to dip her toe back into the crazy world of publishing.  Fans of her will be in love with the characters.  New people to the story will find a new favorite to read.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book and audio,

The narration of the story *Chef’s Kiss* was absolutely perfect.  Heather and Jeffrey brought the characters to life 110%.  I will be honest in that I LOVE Jeffrey’s audio and when I see his name, I am super excited.

I grabbed this book because R. L. Caulder will be attending a book signing I am going too. She has so many books to pick BUT this one had audio.  It was the winner.  I gotta admit chance is why I grabbed the book, but I am so addicted to Kira and her men.

I loved the fact this book was kinda a shifter’s version of Cinderella…I mean she is a gross human the Alpha and his wife, Maya, took in.  But once the Alpha’s mate was killed by daimoma, he blames her and is keeping her in misery to punish her.

Kira had only known happiness the few years she was with Jameson and his mother, Maya.  Once Maya was killed she was only bullied and teases horrible by all the wolves in the pack  Jameson and Sophia were the worst ones to her.  There was only one bright spot in her day. Milo always would protect her.  He has made it clear he has feelings for her, but she knows once the full moon hits when he turns 21 just like the rest of the pack, he will find his mate and forget her.  She guards her heart and hopes one day she can find happiness too.

The closer the pack comes to the next full moon, Kira notices Seth, Jameson’s bestie, looking at her like a pork chop.  She is angry that NOW he admits he has feelings.  Sorry Seth not happening.  Kira does as she is always expected to do when the full moon hits and everyone changes….even KIRA!!!???  Milo, Seth, AND Jameson all run to her because they feel the pull to their “Fated Mate”.  The wolves all see who for her she is but the men have issue except Milo.  Seth soon realizes he needs to listen to his wolf but Jameson…well he is a dick.  Mega dick who is so blinded with hatred for Kira.

Kira soon learns she is has the powers to save the shifters but a cliffy happens when she soon discovers what is happening and who is leading the daimoma.

I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I purchased this audio.

This is a new to me author.  This book hooked me from the start.  Heather Costa and Jeffrey Kafer did a wonderful job narrating this book.  I have listened to several books narrated by Jeffrey and as always, his narration had me captivated. Heather Costa also had a way with narration also. I did not want to press pause on this one.

A girl who was being raised by wolves and was not treated well.  Kira thought of herself as a no one always in the shadows. One-night under the full moon changes everything and her world is turned upside down.  Kira is a true alpha and finds she has not one mate but three.  OH, my I love two of her mates the other one I really feel bad for. He has so much anger built up since he was a kid. His true mate pull and his hatred working against one another. The chemistry between Kira and her mates made the sexiest and steamy scenes. Milo is my favorite mate always having Kira’s back. Seth grew on me as the book went on. He was not perfect in the beginning but showed that he was devoted to supporting Kira. Then there is Jamison he harbors so much anger for Kira since the death of his mother. Just when I thought he was going to come around he proved the darkness in him was hanging on tight.

Kira was amazing when she started standing up for herself and taking charge, I was cheering her on she would be an amazing Alpha.  Even though she was the center of the prophecy she had to overcome all the prenotions of her by the pack. She had to overcome many obstacles to prove her status and even this the cards were stacked against her. The ending of this one had me grabbing the next book.  I need to know what happens next.
