#Review – Devil’s Love by Kim Jones



My name is Marty—
Devil’s Renegades Sergeant at Arms Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
I fought like hell to get where I am. I’ve sacrificed everything to be a member of the greatest brotherhood I’ve ever known. Aside from her, this club is the only thing I love in my life.
Even when she left me, I still wanted her. My love never faltered. It couldn’t. Some shit is just too strong to break. Or at least I thought it was.

My name is Maddie.
I belong to the Devil’s Renegades Motorcycle Club.
I’ve been raised by them. Loved by them. Protected by them. They are my family. To everyone I’m a litter sister—everyone but him.
I tried to deny his love, but still I wanted him. I needed him. Some things you just can’t refuse. But five years is a long time. People change. I guess I’m one of those people.

I’ll get her back…
He’ll try to save me…
She’s just lost…
I’ve found my way…
I’d die for her…
…He’d kill for me—and he will.

This is a full-length, standalone, Devil’s Renegades MC novel. Contains mature themes.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This is Marty and Maddie’s story. Marty was a prospect that fell for Dallas sister and the girl that was off limits because she was thought of as the clubs sister. After he was patched in and things were going for the couple Marty chose the club over Maddie on their anniversary. This caused other events to occur and Maddie to have an epiphany and decided to make some changes in her life.

When Marty was in prison for 5 years he realized what he had with Maddie. However, Maddie was learning to stand on her own and not rely on others to fight her battles. Now that Marty is out of prison and back home he has changed and realizes Maddie is not the same either. Marty is too observant and good at finding out secrets especially Maddie’s. When he realizes what she is up to and over her head he is determined to step in.

I enjoyed this second chance story. Maddie is crazy, funny, strong willed, stands up for herself, and a handful who loves stirring up trouble. Marty is the perfect fit for her because he likes cleaning up her kind of trouble. Marty is the only on that can handle Maddie’s crazy ways. Marty loves Maddie no matter what she does and will always have her back; he is determined to protect her at any cost. I enjoy Kim Jones writing style and cannot wait to read more from her.

A Few of my favorites quotes:

“If you were hurt babe, I’d know it. Better than anyone. Because I’ve seen you hurt, Maddie. And it’s fucking gut-wrenching. I know, because when you feel pain, I feel it too.”

She makes me whole. She makes me love like a Devil. And fight like a goddamn Renegade.

#Teaser #Paranormal #Shifters- Shifter Love: Must Love Lions by Alma Black

Alma Black’s new paranormal romance: Shifter Date: Must Love Lions comes out Nov 30th. Here’s the official book teaser…
"Love is dangerous. And wild. And spectacular." He found himself leaning halfway across his desk. Max had a habit of letting his enthusiasm for his idea run away with him. He raked his hands through his thick mane of blond hair, smoothing it down. "Do you know many couples that are happy?" He eased back in his chair. "Truly happy?”

Max leaned toward her in a conspiratorial way. "Hey, once you go shifter, you never go back."

And the blurb…
Alexis Parrish is very single. Sassy and smart, she’s great at her job as a journalist, but it’s never given her the time to find the right man–specifically, a human. So when she gets assigned to interview Max, a lion shifter, about the new dating app he’s created, she can’t believe her intense attraction to him. After all, humans and shifters don’t date.
Max is used to causing trouble. He broke tradition by creating the dating app, Shifter, which humans and shifters alike can use to answer the call of the wild.

When Max challenges Alexis to give him a chance, she can’t say no. A human like her has no business with this handsome alpha lion, but she can’t resist his magnetism. Their chemistry is primal, their connection positively animalistic. After all, once you go shifter, you never go back.

But when a rogue shifter group against interspecies dating targets Alexis, Max will stop at nothing to protect her. It’s more than his pride on the line; it’s his mate.

Warning: Shifter Date: Must Love Lions is a paranormal shape-shifter romance. If sassy, sexy, and carnal reads aren’t your thing, this book isn’t for you. It contains lots of hot sex, a bit of violence, and a lot of witty banter.

I received this book for an honest review.

AHH OK first off let’s discuss that cover shall we?  Sooooo amazing and sooooo beautiful.  Ok now to the book.  The reasons I sign up for CP’s books are because they are super funny and uber hawt but I love her characters.  There is something about her characters that always kinda catches my eye.  I know she says she writes about “insta-love” and generally I am not a fan of that but in her books it doesn’t feel that way so I love the love story between the characters.

Here we go, Devin is THAT guy.  You know what I mean.  The grouchy yet hawt, cocky yet hawt, arrogant yet hawt alpha….LOL…see he caught my eye!!  I was wishing I would hear him grouch and growl at me like he does in the book.  The hubby was not a fan when I ask  him to repeat lines from the book…Just kidding or am I??

Calla is in a word protected.  She is protected by her family and she has protected her heart until a certain brooding detective comes and changes all of that.  Why does she protect herself?  She feels that she is the reason why her parents died all those many years ago.  SO close off your heart and no more pain right?  Loneliness yes but pain no but when Calla SEES Devin, its all over folks!!  LOL

The relationship is certainly hawt and while they are dealing with a certain case they get closer and closer and closer…once they meet its like w wick is lit and in time…BOOM .  The chemistry started slow but by the end you are racing through your book waiting until…….oh come on you know ………….wink wink.

I am so ready for the other two books in the series!!

#TwinsieForTheDay #Review #overtheedge – Over the Edge by Meredith Wild


Over the Edge (Bridge, #3)


Olivia Bridge has always been a good girl—good grades, good friends, and a good job that her wealthy parents handed her. Desperate to carve out a life that is truly hers, Liv walks away from it all and takes on the challenge of helping her brothers open a chain of fitness centers in New York City. Just as she’s beginning to find her footing in a new place, she’s caught between two men who couldn’t be more determined to turn all her goodness inside out.

Will Donovan has the capital to make the Bridge brothers’ entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Taking their uptight sister to bed seems a reasonable perk for the risk. Liv is the smartest, sexiest prude Will’s ever met, and he can’t wait to break her down.

Life is too short for Ian Savo to play by anyone’s rules. Sharing women with his best friend isn’t anything new, so when Will introduces him to Liv, he can’t wait to get a taste. But falling for the same girl, or falling at all, was never in the plans…



Twinsie for the Day

Review by Amy

I received this book for an honest review.

*Can be read as a standalone*
Olivia Bridge is the only daughter of a powerful Wall Street family. Her brothers have left the family business to go out on their own, so being the perfect child is what is expect of her, until she meets Will Donovan.
Will is in charge of the Bridge brothers next gym. He immediately wants Olivia from the moment she walks in, yelling about a wall that isn’t supposed to be there. What starts as an indecent proposal of no strings, leads to something much more.
Ian Savo, has always been the wingman. He was Darren Bridge’s wingman before he settled down and now he lives with Will. He has always wanted Olivia, but being Darren’s sister she was off limits. That first night Will brought her home, he knew he needed her too.
Will and Ian share women, but they never expected to both fall in love with Olivia. Knowing that what they share is taboo to most people, they are content to share it behind closed doors, until the day comes that jealousy rears it’s ugly head. Will gets the boyfriend in the public and Ian can’t handle it. This leads to the Bridge family finding out Olivia isn’t going to the perfect child anymore, she’s ready to live her life for her and not anyone else.
Olivia’s brothers and parents take the news especially hard, they can’t fathom how she could love two men and it work. Will, Ian, and Olivia have made it work and they are moving on with each other. They are merging their lives into one, until Olivia finds out she’s pregnant.
Olivia can’t understand how this is happening to her, they took every precaution. Will realizes that it’s his because of one fateful night. When they tell Ian, he can’t handle it and walks away, leaving Will to try to pick up the pieces. Will quickly realizes that no matter how much he loves her, he will never be able to fill the hole in her heart from Ian.
Darren finally sees how much Olivia loves each man, and at the firehouse tries to get Ian to see how miserable she is without both of the men she loves. Ian tells him he just can’t do it anymore. Finally, Will reaches out to Ian, but he’s still too stubborn to try to be there.
Will brings Olivia with him on a business trip to Paris, the City of Lights. They begin to talk marriage but Olivia realizes no matter how much she loves him, she’s not sure it’s right, something’s missing until Will moves and she sees Ian walking up to them. Everything falls into place and they have their HEA.

#Review #WOTR17- Final Ride: Hellions Motorcycle Club (The Hellions Ride #9) by Chelsea Camaron



synopsisEverything I have never had is right in front of me. Family, it’s mine for the taking. For the first time in my life, I found stability in the Hellions MC. From the ground up, I’ve been loyal to my brothers.

Now the time has come when I may have to choose between the family I’ve never known or the club I’ve built and given my all to.

Richard ‘Frisco’ Billings is the California kid who rode into Haywood’s Landing when the Hellions were needing an extra man. As an original, he’s been with the club from day one. After growing up with no real place to call home, he’s found solid ground.

All of it crashed around him when secrets were revealed and he found out he missed all the formative years with his daughter being raised in an enemy’s club.

Amy Mitchell was lost her whole life until she was found by the Hellions MC in a bad situation with Felix Delatorre. She spent years with the club, rebuilding her life and finding a place where she could belong.

When a new young woman comes into the home she has with Frisco, will she still fit into his world? Will Frisco find a way to make everything work together? Will this be his final ride with the Hellions as life takes him down a different road?

Catch up with all your favorite couples as every secret finds its way out of the dark and new things are revealed, changing the club forever. This is the final ride for the Hellions MC as we know it.

***This book is a work of fiction and not an exact depiction of life in a motorcycle club. This story is a friends to lovers romance that will revisit characters from the previous books in the series, however, it can be read as a stand alone story. This is a full length novel with a paperback page count over 300 pages. The series is best read in order but each individual story does close out completely leaving no cliffhanger endings. Due to mature content, adult language, and violence it is not suitable for readers under the age of 18.***

Melinda's ReviewI received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This was one of the best endings to a series I have read in a while. I’m sad to see this one end Chelsea made it the best one. This was about Frisco, one of the original Hellions. When his past and present collide it will change his future.

Fresco was never one to let his heart get in the way not after it was broken by the only woman he gave it to. Tilly wanted him to choose her over the club when that didn’t happen things went bad for the club. Now Frisco has Amy who he has helped get though the darkness. Club business had him standing in front of his past and now has the responsibility of his future. How is Fresco going to balance the love for his club and his love for his new found Family?

Amy was amazing and I fell in love with her as much as I did Fresco. The way she would stand up for herself and the ones she loved no matter who it was, but was always loyal and respectful to her man and the Hellions. She has come a long way with Fresco’s help once meek shy and closed off now she has blossomed and her true personality is shining through. The way she opens her arms when Fresco’s past and now future is in her home was amazing.

Seeing all the Hellions families what they are up to and seeing their families grow was heartwarming. This series took us on one hell of a ride, but this book had me on an emotional roller coaster. I’m telling you make sure tissues are close by because this final ride had tears in my eyes then I was hiccup crying only to cry more later. To see the passion these men had for their club, their women and their families was the best story told. This was a hell of a ride.

“The ride for life is love, loyalty, and Respect.”

#releaseday – To Save Him by Jade Jamison

To Save Him Banner


Title: To Save Him

Author: Jade C Jamison

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 21



A new look at the May-December romance…

She said she would do anything to save him…but will it cause her to lose herself?

What if she was wrong? What if Brandon Abbott is not who he says he is?

Kimberly Cooper’s emotional compass has been off since her bitter divorce and the death of her oldest son, so when young soldier Brandon shows up at her door, she invites him to be part of her family’s life. He says he was friends with her deceased son…

But things don’t seem to add up.

And then, when she becomes sexually attracted to him, all bets are off.

When her heart trumps her brain, will she know if she was wrong or will she learn the truth after it’s too late?

To Save Him teaser pic


There was a sadness about Brandon that touched my heart. I could sense that he had so much more to say, but the words couldn’t find a way out. Maybe he needed time, but there was also a chance that those words would be forever buried inside him.

“Brandon, I haven’t been a Christian woman since the day I learned of my son’s death, but it wouldn’t be very Christian or civil of me to turn you away after dark.” I took a deep breath and saw him mustering up an argument, but I began speaking again before he could protest. “Ordinarily, I’d have a guest stay in the extra bedroom, but—if you’d be okay with it—I’d imagine Gabriel would like to have you stay in his room. It’s…been unoccupied for a very long time.”

There was a long pause until JR clamored, “Please?

Brandon’s struggle was evident in his eyes but he said, “That’s very kind of you. I’d…appreciate it more than you know.”

His soul had spoken to me that night. It was the night I fell in love with Brandon Abbott.

About the Author


For years, Jade C. Jamison tried really hard to write what she thought was more “literary” fiction, but she found herself compelled to write what you read by her today—sometimes gritty, raw, realistic stories and other times humorous, light tales—but most of the stories she writes revolve around relationships and characters finding their way through life. While she doesn’t confine herself to just one genre, nor is there a nice neat label for what she writes, most of her work could be called erotic romance.

She lives in Colorado with her husband and four children.

Love will find a way, and for Brute and Bexley it comes to life standing under the bright lights of a grocery store aisle. ‘A Kiss to Keep You’ is a short, sweet, happily ever after story that you are going to adore.

Richard Monte had it all. A satisfying career in the military, where he took pride in serving his country. He had close friends, good ones, and a goddaughter he doted on. His life was filled with riches, and looked to stay that way for the foreseeable future. All of that was stripped away in an instant, destroyed along with his face in the flash and explosion of a roadside bomb. Struggling to find his way in a new world, one where his very appearance is cause for fear and dismay, he stumbles upon a woman who seems to see beyond the surface, a curvy blonde named Bexley. Her reaction to him is so different, and she offers him an unexpected taste of beauty from her sweetly upturned lips. They seem destined to be together, but a rising danger in a far western state threatens everything he’s worked to build. Not without her own demons, Bexley has to fight overwhelming odds to hold onto the man she’s come to love.

From Chapter 1: Brute’s Girl


He sat on his bike and watched her. Gorgeous, reserved, she seemed unaware of her own beauty, and just as unconscious of his regard, because she never looked up from the book held balanced on her knees. Never raised her gaze to find him watching her. To see the other men in the area looking their fill. Seated on the green grass of the park, back to a tree, she rested with her heels drawn up tight to her bottom while her skirt draped gracefully over her angled legs. With a bottle of water lying nearby, her slouchy messenger bag was tossed to one side, phone nowhere in sight. She had lost herself in the story, as she so often did. Blonde, stunning, and so unattainable, especially for a man like him. She might as well have been on the moon.

Ricky sighed and started his bike, checking traffic before he smoothly pulled out of the lot where he had been sitting for over an hour. The first minutes had been spent anxiously waiting on her arrival, then the remainder, he’d been avidly watching his girl. That was what the guys in the motorcycle club, his brothers, all called her. As he rolled the throttle and accelerated up the street, he was already anticipating the jeering catcalls that would greet him when he pulled into the clubhouse. Brute’s Girl.

Gliding the bike to a stop behind traffic, as he waited for the light to turn green, he turned his head, glancing into the car beside him. Without thinking, he smiled fondly at the young girl driving the aged two-door vehicle. She looked a lot like his goddaughter, pert nose covered by freckles, untidy hair tucked behind her ears. Seeing her made him think he needed to call Dylan, see how their Natalie was doing in her first year of college, ask about the family. Then the girl turned her head and saw him. Her reaction was instant and dramatic, hands slapping at the controls on the inside of the door to lock the car, mouth falling open in silent horror. Swiftly, he wiped the smile from his face and turned to face forward, not wanting to make her more uncomfortable than he already had.

Richard Monte was well acquainted with the societal challenges he had to work within, and around. He should be, he saw evidence of them every time he looked in the mirror. Face mangled by the roadside bomb that had taken most of his patrol, his skin in turns was glossy smooth and cratered from the burns and shrapnel. He knew how the barest glimpse of his countenance could affect those who were unprepared. That was why he didn’t go out often; choosing instead to stay in his apartment, his work-from-home job as a help desk technician was without much outside contact. Not content, but merely pragmatic enough to recognize what it did to him every time he provoked a reaction like this one.

The men of the Rebel Wayfarers MC were the exception. Introduced to them by a friend, these people judged him not by what remained of his face, but by his actions and words. Fiercely honorable in their own way, the outlaw group of bikers had folded themselves around him protectively, finding him a job allowing him to support himself. Providing both independence and giving him a community of people he could count on, no matter what.

The girl in the park, the blonde. The beauty he would only ever be able to look at from afar. She was another anomaly in his world. Months ago he had seen her in the grocery store, and she had shocked him by not reacting. Well, not reacting to his face, at least. She had reacted to him as a man, something he hadn’t experienced for nearly a decade. Reaching for a boxed dinner, he had clumsily knocked it to the floor, and before he could grab it, the blonde had bent over and picked it up. Holding it behind her back, she had smiled up at him, her tone light and playful as she had asked, “What’ll you give me for it?”

Bright blue pools looking right at his face, smile curling her full red lips, cheeks lifted, and that same smile making her eyes fucking dance, she had looked him in the eyes and teased him. Exactly as a woman would do with a man she found attractive. Without hesitation, he’d answered as he would have before the injury, boldly stating the cost. Two words shaping his desires. “A kiss.”

Immediately, she’d responded, “Deal,” and leaned forward, lifting her chin. Standing there in the grocery store aisle, he had bent slightly, pressing his lips in a brief, soft, closed-mouthed kiss to raspberry-flavored ones. Lips belonging to a beautiful blonde who was curvy but carried it well, cute and knew it, standing close to him in a strapless sundress still swinging slightly around her calves.

When he’d pulled back, she’d held the pose for a moment, lashes a shade darker than her hair resting on her cheeks, lips slightly parted, an adorable flush rising in her cheeks. Then her blue eyes had opened, and she again looked at him without distaste or fear, no cringing or hesitation in her expression. “Here’s your box,” she’d murmured, and he’d reached for the container. She’d handed it over but had stayed in place for a moment, then an expression of regret had flashed across her features before she’d said, “See you around.” Ricky had stood there watching as she’d walked up the aisle away from him, turning to offer him a friendly wave before she’d gone out of sight, the hem of her colorful, swirling skirt the last thing he saw.

He had abandoned his cart in the store to follow her outside, noting the make and model of her car. Then, like the sad sack he was, he’d stalked her all the way to her house on the outskirts of town. He had been surprised to find she didn’t live too far from his apartment, only four blocks. Rare beauty, and so close to hand. Her house a tiny cottage tucked in alongside family homes in a well-established neighborhood, an oddness for the area. A generation ago it was probably used as a mother-in-law’s residence.

Back at the clubhouse that night, it had been hours later, and he was still turning the encounter over and over in his mind, trying to figure out what had actually happened. It was confusing on many levels. He didn’t get flirty anymore. Didn’t get sweet. Sure didn’t get kissed in public exposed under the too-bright lights of a grocery store.

One of the guys had plied him with booze and then worked to pry the story out of him. That was when she got her name. They already called him Brute, a plain statement of his looks but one that held surprisingly little sting, because it wasn’t done maliciously, but supportively. His looks didn’t matter to them, and the name they dubbed him with was a way for them to show it. So Brute’s Girl, well, that just came naturally.

Since then he had watched her. He didn’t think she had caught sight of him again. Probably harbored no memory of the gift she had given him, but oh, how he watched her.

Now, sitting at a light alongside a girl who was horrified just by looking at him, he snorted. Sure, he could be a fairy godfather. Right.

Music is a driving passion, and she says, “I love music of nearly any genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap, hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars [read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”

Novella Sales to Raise Money for Charity Benefiting Veterans

deMora announced Lone Star Warriors Outdoors (LSWO) selected for yearlong donation efforts

Author MariaLisa deMora announced the start of a yearlong literary charity effort today. With the help of book bloggers and related social media she intends to raise money to help support the Lone Star Warriors Outdoors nonprofit organization in their efforts to assist combat wounded military veterans.

“Research for a number of my fictional characters led me to interview military veterans from all walks of life. So many of these warriors are struggling with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), in addition to devastating physical injuries received while serving our country, most with minimal support as they do so,” Ms. deMora continued. “I want to give back in a way that will make an impact at the local level. Lone Star Warriors Outdoors is focused on reconnecting individuals who were injured serving our country with things they once loved: outdoors and hunting. There is an additional benefit to bringing the warriors together for an organized excursion, because they are provided with a priceless opportunity to bond with men who share their service experiences. My family has a strong military history. All his life, my father remained friends with men he’d served alongside during his 22-years in the Air Force. I also saw the instant kinship he would find with virtually any serviceman he encountered. There is a soul-deep camaraderie between men like that, and Lone Star Warriors Outdoors (LSWO) recognizes and provides an environment where that connection can thrive.”

Ms. deMora began her self-published writing career in 2014 with the release of “Mica,” book #1 in her Rebel Wayfarers MC (RWMC) series. Followed quickly by another several books, this saga has inspired a spinoff series, as well as several short stories and novellas. Her novella, “A Kiss to Keep You,” will be the foundation of royalty-earning efforts on behalf of LSWO. With a story centered on the struggles of a combat vet returning from overseas, the book is a natural fit for this charitable campaign.

“I’m an advocate for paying success forward. Or sideways. Or backwards. It’s important to me to ensure the gifts I’ve been given are shared, in whatever fashion. During February 2016, all royalties earned from sales of ‘Jase,’ book #4 in the RWMC series went to support Puck Cancer, a charity that provides assistance to families dealing with cancer diagnosis. That effort was very successful, and I’d like to build on what I learned,” deMora said. “The tie-in for that book was that the main character was a hockey player, which made an easy bridge from the book world to the real one in order to help Puck Cancer. For this one, the hero is a wounded veteran attempting to pick up the pieces of his life back home.”

For the period of one year, half of all earnings from sales of “A Kiss to Keep You” will be donated to Lone Star Warriors Outdoors, a tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization located in Tyler, Texas, near deMora’s hometown.

“Moderately priced, ‘A Kiss to Keep You,’ is on the long end of the novella literary form, both things that readers enjoy. The story’s sweet happily-ever-after ending should be a hit for readers, too,” deMora continued. “Once I had the idea, I sat down and did the math, and saw I could swing it to donate half of all earnings for this book to the charity for at least a year. I’m so glad that Lone Star Warriors Outdoors will benefit from this project. It’s a great cause.”

Starting November 21, 2016, “A Kiss to Keep You” will be sold on all popular book retail platforms including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, and Scribd. $2.99 per electronic copy, $12.99 for paperback. Read more about the story at deMora’s website, www.mldemora.com.

MariaLisa deMora is a best-selling author of eleven contemporary fiction and romance novels in three series. Represented by MLK Publishing, her books and stories have topped numerous categories at Amazon, and one short story has been listed in the top-100 of its category for more than a year.

Lone Star Warriors Outdoors mission is to say “Thank You” to our Nation’s combat Wounded and Injured Warriors who have sacrificed mind and body in the fight on terrorism by providing a fun and relaxing atmosphere while introducing or reconnecting and teaching the American tradition of hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities. Second to provide a time of mental healing or therapy by allowing Wounded Warriors to meet others that have been in the same situation, allowing each to talk about issues that only they understand.

#Review #TwinsieForTheDay – The Fix Up by Kendall Ryan

The Fix Up by Kendall Ryan


synopsis From New York Times bestseller, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

My tempting and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits.

It’s not just that we’re friends, he’s also cocky, confident, and British, which means he’s a walking aphrodisiac.

But lately he’s been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I’m not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long.

When we start working together, that’s when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I’ve harbored for him disappear, because there’s no way this can end well.

The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I’m stuck between a rock, and Sterling’s very, very hard place.

Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together.

But I’ve been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I’m not about to be cast aside like yesterday’s underwear when he’s done having fun.

Sterling’s never been told no, and he’s not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he’d fight so dirty.

*This is a spin-off from the HITCHED series, but can be read as a standalone.

Twinsie for the DayReview by: Jordan

Who wouldn’t want to fall in love with a sexy British billionaire?! Camryn was all set to fix Sterling up with a wife and send him on his way until her emotions became involved. Now what will she do? Follow through and marry him off or through the rules out the window and do what she wants?
This story is funny and witty with the British charm that Sterling brings. I was pulled in immediately and fell in love with the man myself. Personally I love Kendall’s writing style and the way her characters always seem to come to life. This story was no different and I can’t wait to see what she will come up with next.
I purchased this book.
