#WOTR21 #AudioBook #review #Family – Love and Pancakes: Rockland Falls, Book 1 by Lacey Black

Love and Pancakes

Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.

Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.

What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book from the author but purchased the audio book.

Ok since I am reviewing the audio book I gotta say….HEEEY Rhenn’s narrator.  Holy Sweet Baby Jesus that voice.  Imma tell ya, you will be thanking me for that right off the bat.  I don’t want to know what the narrator really looks like because my mind has his picture juuuuuust right.  LOL  Now I see he does the voice for the other 2 books…….YES is all I can say.

So this is my first Lacey book….yeah yeah I know late to the party like always but ya know what can I say. I have only known her 5 years *Face Palm*

I gotta say I loved the dynamic of quiet and shy but sassy Marissa with Rhenn.  Rhenn is all playa playa who falls for the women who embodies his exact opposite type…ya know, she isn’t an easy whore.  LOL

Marissa is devastated by her family’s business/home fire and is lost because what will they do.  When her long lost family enters the picture, she gets connected to Rhenn who will be doing the family a favor and wiring the house for them.

When Rhenn shows up, he is stunned stupid at the beautiful women he sees but knows she isn’t “his type” and a quick roll won’t be something she is interested in.  When, after getting to know him, she proposes Friends with Benefits while he is in town….he flips out.

I loved seeing them fall but fear telling the other.  They both want more but she fears she isn’t good enough and he is ashamed of his past.  When the two weeks is up and they part, I was a little bit weepy and wanted to kick Rhenn in the balls.

The end of the story is perfect and totally swoon worthy.

I gotta say Emma and Orville KILLED ME in this story.  Marissa’s long-lost aunt and uncle were to inappropriately funny in this book.  I can’t wait for more of them in the rest of the books.  I am kinda giving brother Samuel a look over because I just know the right women or even man could make that anal-retentive ass crumble.  But first up is sexy diva Harper.  I can’t wait to see who tames this wild child!!

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.

#WOTR21 #audiobook #MM #SeriesStarter #KU – His Kind of Love (Lonely Hearts #1) by Kate Hawthorne

His Kind of Love (Lonely Hearts #1)

Joel Reading was lonely.

Nineteen years old, estranged from his family and seemingly unable to ever get a second date, he’s surrounded himself with the things he loved most: old books and old music.

When one date got out of hand before it even began, Joel found himself displaced from a flooded apartment and on the doorstep of a handsome and older stranger, more than willing to take Joel in for the night.

Gabriel Hunter had waited years for the right man.

When a distressed Joel showed up at his door needing a place to stay, it was more perfect than Gabriel could ever have hoped for. He quickly found himself falling for the complex and beautiful boy he welcomed into his house, and started to believe in a future with the young man he adoringly called, Little Red.

Unfortunately, Gabriel was a man of many secrets, and they threatened to unravel the delicate relationship he was building with Joel.

Would Joel be able to see beyond Gabriel’s deliberate omissions and give their love a chance, or would Gabriel’s kind of love prove to be more than Joel could handle?

#WOTR21 #AudioBook #Historical #Review – Earl of Sunderland (Wicked Earls’ Club, #4) by Aubrey Wynne

Earl of Sunderland (Wicked Earls' Club, #4)

He’s inherited the title of rake. She hides behind her independence… Fate accepts the challenge.

Grace Beaumont has seen what love can do to a woman. Her mother sacrificed her life to produce the coveted son and heir. A devastated father and newborn brother force her to take on the role of Lady Boldon at the age of fifteen. But Grace finds solace in the freedom and power of her new status.

Christopher Roker made a name for himself in the military. The rigor and pragmatism of the army suits him. When a tragic accident heaves Kit into a role he never wanted or expected, his world collides with another type of duty. Returning to England and his newfound responsibilities, the Wicked Earls’ Club becomes a refuge from the glitter and malice of London society but cannot ease his emptiness.

Needing an escape from his late brother’s memory and reputation, Kit visits the family estate for the summer. Lady Grace, a beauty visiting from a neighboring estate, becomes a welcome distraction. When the chance to return to the military becomes a valid possibility, the earl finds himself wavering between his old life and the lure of an exceptional—and unwilling—woman.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I am a historical LOVER!! I love the Ton. I love Regency. I love the corsets. I love the rules. I love the gossip. I love the sneaking away to steal a moment with your loved one. I. Just. Love. It!!
So this book didn’t disappoint me. I opened it and devoured it in no time. I was so drawn to the characters and their situations that placed the two of them together. I loved how open minded Kit was about a woman. He was raised by a strong woman and so he in turn wants a strong wife.

Grace has been the Lady of her family’s lands since her mother died at the young age of 15. She became the woman of the house raising her brother, taking care of the ground, the staff and her father. She wants to live her life her way and isn’t looking for a husband. They will pin her down and she loves her independence.

Grace and Kit meet when her cousin/bestie marries Kit’s twin brother. They hit it off but time was not right for them. He had to return to the military to fight Napoleon while she must continue to raise her brother.

When they meet back up the sparks pick up right where they were at the wedding. Neither are looking for an HEA. They just want to pass the time over the summer with a friendly face and some silly flirting. Little do they know, the silly fun turns serious very quickly. Then both are worried about how the other will react to the news the other is in love with them.

I loved the scene when Kit comes to see her at her family home and we learn of all that he has planned and all he declares to our girl. I also love the side characters in the story. They are all there and offer the right guidance to the characters when they need it. I would love to see Grace’s dad marry again along with Eliza!

When Drake learns his former fiancée, Jessica Majors-Depre, has a price on her head, he decides he will collect the reward.

I’m a hybrid, in that I’m published both traditionally and I’m self-publishing. I wrote my first published novel while working on the critical introduction of my creative project for my master’s degree. It wasn’t the most perfect timing but my Muse isn’t the most cooperative, either. She dropped Colt and Amelia into my head and insisted I write their story. So, I tried to reason with Her. Yeah…that wasn’t going to work either. In between writing pages of that critical intro, I kept a second document open and wrote their story.

All of my published novels are western historical romances. My traditionally published romances are set in/around a little town called Federal, in the Wyoming Territory. Federal was actually a town at one time and it still shows up on the state maps handed out by the Tourism Commission in Wyoming. However, Federal isn’t even a wide spot in the road anymore. Other than a small wooden sign denoting “Federal” on a spur of the Burlington-Northern Railroad line, there isn’t much left of Federal.

I love this period of our nation’s history. The national psyche was recovering and healing in the aftermath of the American Civil War and the westward expansion helped to heal that psyche. The research I’ve had to do with each novel makes the history geek in me totally giddy. Those weren’t survival skills I was learning. I was researching how my characters would have lived.

When I’m not writing, I show those Collies I first fell in love with as a child. I’ve bred or co-bred more than thirty champions. ​I also make beaded “bling” leads to sell to help support my dog show addiction/habit. Dog shows are the reason I don’t have too many vices–I can’t afford another habit.

#WOTR21 #RH #Trilogy #Review – Reviving Kendall: White Trash Trilogy, Book 1 by Brandy Slaven

I won this book from the author and this is my honest opinion

Kendall is just your normal girl who happens to be from the wrong side of the tracks she moved in with her grandparents at a young age when her parents both ended up in jail then cancer took her grandma and now its gotten her grandpa too but hasn’t taking him. she works for everything they have and tries her best to be able to stay above paying the bills and keeping their trailer from getting taking away. After losing the loves of her life in a car crash she hast been the same until one night at work she was sent to a table of 4 sexy as hell guys and for the first time in 2 years she was flirting with them. well that was all it took for them to click the 5 started hanging out more and things started happening kisses were exchanged and well things could get super messing so Kendall put the brakes on she wasnt going to be the reason these friends would break apart if they were to fight over her. well Maverick, Goose, Lucas, and Teagan has other plans they didn’t share with others but they were all falling for Kendall and she was falling for them all. wow this book is amazing and their relationship is so cute and ugh gives you all he feels. even with all the ups and downs through this book definitely couldnt put it down.

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 one of the state parks. Bringing her characters to life is one of her greatest accomplishments.

#WOTR21 #dark #Sadist #Slave #Cartel #review #KU – Masquerade by Derek Masters

I’m dead to the world, except for HIM.

Looking for a big break in my journalism career, I thought I found it when I met Brandon Thomas, a seedy accountant who works for every crooked politician, plus the cartel.

The minute he caught me stealing computer files with the cartel by his side, the jig was up. The cartel wanted me dead.

Brandon wanted me dead, but then he had a better idea – one that wouldn’t end my life but change it forever. I would be granted the opportunity to live – but only as his slave.

Now I’m only his toy. An inanimate object to torture and play with when he feels like doing so. But what’s worst than being his toy? His plaything? Liking it.

And just as things between us begins to progress, the game changes and we learn that the cartel is coming to kill both of us.

Read this dark billionaire romantic suspense to find out who makes it out alive.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

This was the first full book I have read by this author.  I was actually pretty intrigued at this mafia/cartel/dark story.  I mean it hits all the right dark elements right!!

Chloe was a pretty entitled girl, but she also had to deal with her not so awesome or involved parents.  Her dad is a senator with political aspirations.  So Chloe is only good when she fits his agenda.  Her mother is a wet mop who is a trophy wife is the best guess.

Chloe just wants to be a journalist but her dad has a tantrum and takes her schooling away from her ya know because she was partying at a club….like a normal college kid……DUH DAD!  So she is none to thrilled to be ordered to attend a political party to put on the “show” for him.  She puts on the happy face and decides she will find something to write a story about at the party she is being forced to attend…not a good idea girl!!

Now here is where we meet Brandon.  He is a super slick accountant …and Chloe’s dads accountant at that.  He also is a bit on the corrupt side annnnd did I mention he works with the mafia??  Brandon sees Chloe and is not thrilled when she rebuffs him.  But soon enough Chloe sets her sights on Brandon and all hell breaks loose.  When Chloe gets busted stealing valuable information EVERYTHING changes for her and Brandon.

The dark elements were pretty amazing in that Chloe can either choose to die or stay as Brandon’s slave for LIFE.  The two find an easy companionship with Brandon helping Chloe realize her true nature.

The plot twist at the end, I was cheering alot and I sure would love more from the couple.


Derek Masters grew up in Overland Park, Kansas and now lives in the immediate Kansas City, Missouri area.

When he’s not writing, you can typically find him working out in the gym, watching the game at one of his favorite sports bars, or hanging out at the park with his dog, Bully.

I received a copy of the audio of this book from the author.

I read this book a few years ago.  I fell in love with these guys and Ariel. It was fun to listen to the audio.  I forgot so many little things I was nice to be reminded.  The narrator, Melissa Schwairy , was very good. I felt like I was right there in the book. I didn’t want to push the pause button when my real life needed attention.

Here is my original review:

So when you are on a road trip with your BFF and she starts to read this book to you while you drive stating you just have to read. Well you listen to her and let me tell you she was right.  I am hooked on this series.

Ariel Kimber has not had an easy life mostly thanks to her mother. Her mom abuses her and has men going in and out her door like people going in and out a revolving door. Her mom meets a man and uproots her to a strange town and new school with no friends. The hurt doesn’t end there being the new girl at school proves to be difficult especially when the town knows her mom’s rep.  When she meets her neighbor’s things start to change for her.

Tyson lives with his Uncle Quinton and twins, Able and Addison.  Ariel becomes fast friends with Tyson but she is leery of Uncle Quin. These four are keeping a big secret from Ariel and she has no idea how much she has in common with them or why she is drawn to them.

The connection these guys and Ariel have is off the charts. The surprises and twists Mary Martel puts in this one has me wanting more and more as I read. The characters are different in their own way and I want to know everything about each one..yes, even Uncle Quin he is so brooding and mysterious.

I am so glad my partner in crime made me listen to this one.  I am hooked and so ready for the next book.

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.

Our relationship was toxic.

Intense.

Brutal.

When she slipped out of my hotel room, I made it my mission to have her back in my bed.

She ran.

I chased.

And when we finally crashed, I’d have to save her from the one person she trusted most…

Before us by JM Walker

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

Holy Hells Bells!!

Jaron Mercer is so much like his father, Greyson, in so many ways!!

Piper!! Holy shit did I fall in love with her like I did her parents, Max and Dale!!

If this story is any indication of how the rest of the kid’s books will be, we are going to be in for a hell of a good read!!

Jaron and Piper’s story is only the beginning and you get to meet them in the Wanted anthology. They have some serious issues of loving each other for a long time but never really acting on the feelings until Paris. The two of them have finally lit that fuse and now they can’t stop what is meant to be.
This is a short and quick story, but it leaves me LONGING for the rest because trust me friends, this book is JUST the beginning of their long love story!!!

J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who hit USA Today with Wanted: An Outlaw Anthology. She loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.
