Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I have read many books by Brandy and a few from KB Everly.  I enjoy the writing style and stories each author can craft.  I looked forward to this story because its RH and MC.  Those are a total jam for me.  The concept of all women MC is a great genre.  I have only read one other series like that, so I was super pumped.

I will say the beginning of the story was kinda wordy and drug a bit.  I know we are world building, but I did put the book down a few times when reading.  Gotta say, I did enjoy the buildup between Sidra and Goul.  I mean totally awesome banter and chemistry between the President and her Enforcer.  The whole “We can’t but we want” thing really worked for me.  Seeing them pine for the other *Chef’s Kiss*  LOVED it!!  I knew this was an RH but thought maybe this book was just a contemporary MF. Which would have been cool.  But then all of a sudden 2 other men are tossed in Sidra’s bed and I didn’t feel that connection she had with them like Goul.  But that is just me…maybe because I was really digging Goul???

I did like the story of the other MC club in town doing bad business and trying to cause issue for Sidra and her town.  Sidra and her crew are proud to be supporting the community and not destroying it like the other MC.

All in all it was a great start or a great addition to the Leather and Lace MC series.  Also I think the covers are beautiful!!!!

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

#WOTR23 #Paranormal #FakeMate #Shifters #RawrCounty – The Red Panda’s Fake Mate, Rawr County Book 7 by Sophie Stern

The Red Panda's Fake Mate (Shifters of Rawr County Book 7) by [Sophie Stern]

Jennifer lives alone. She works alone. She travels alone. Everything in her life is centered around that solitude. She doesn’t do well with crowds or groups of people, so she’s chosen a job where she can work by herself without being distracted.

When her boss requests her presence on a company retreat that could lead to an incredible promotion, she realizes she needs to make herself seem as mature, well-rounded, and stable as possible.

What better way than by bringing her mate along?

The problem is that Jennifer doesn’t have a mate. Red pandas are notorious for living on their own or in very, very small groups, and she doesn’t exactly have a list of boyfriends on call.

When a chance encounter leads to the perfect opportunity to claim a fake mate as her own, Jennifer doesn’t resist.

After all, what’s the worst thing that could happen?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Ok so if you don’t remember this let me refresh your memory, I love Sophie.  Her books are the perfect blend of sweet, sexy, funny, and steamy.  When she offered to let me read this series, I jumped.  I fell in love with Jennifer, the Panda, in a previous book.  She is a shy Panda who is crazy in love with her boss Lewis, the Lion.

Lewis is beyond stupid in love with his employee Jennifer.  He loves her late-night texts about how to take care of a foster kitten.  He loves her love of blueberry bagels.  He loves her…anything and everything.

When Lewis informs her, she is attending a weekend conference with him, she freaks.  She needs distance.  She needs to remain professional.  She needs…..a boyfriend.  SOOOO Enter Jennifer’s plan to rent a boyfriend so Lewis and her can keep it platonic. Good idea, right??  Yeah, we all know how this will turn out!

Lewis is none to thrilled to learn HIS Panda has a boyfriend.  But he is also none to happy to find out his assistant Graham is playing matchmaker with him and Jennifer.  A hotel “mistake”, a swimsuit debacle, and sharing a bed turns into everything Jennifer and Lewis need to confront their feelings.

I was laughing sooooo hard when Jennifer’s boyfriend shows up and what happens between him and Lewis…classic!!!

This series has been amazing.  I have been reading them out of order.  Each book is a stand alone and can be read any time.  If you love shifter stories, grab one and get started on it.  You will be in crazy love with her too.

#WOTR23 #Military #Mystery #Audio – Stitched up Heart, Combat Heros book 1 by Tarina Deaton, Narration by Hayden Bishop

Stitched Up Heart (Combat Hearts Book 1) by [Tarina Deaton]

As an Air Force medic, Bree Marks saw the worst the War on Terror had to dish out. Now a physical therapist, she uses her experience to help other veterans heal from their physical wounds; while she battles her own emotional damage.

Blaming himself for his best friend’s suicide, former Army Ranger Jase Larken, retreated from life. To honor his best friend’s memory and assuage his guilt, he started an outdoor adventure company to help veterans with PTSD.

Bree had better things to do than catch her cheating fiance in bed with another woman. Jase is something better – for a night at least. For the first time in years, Jase wanted more. When he finds her again, he doesn’t give her another chance to run.

Jase’s protectiveness grates on Bree’s independent nature. She’s dealt with her fair share of alpha-male, door kickers and doesn’t need one telling her what to do now. But as a new danger emerges, Bree and Jase must face their pasts, before someone’s obsession with Bree destroys any chance they have of a future.

Can be read as a stand alone. No cliffhangers within the story.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.

First up, I am a narration snob.  I admit it.  I am picky and picky and even picky about my voices.  Ya’ll Hayden’s voice was THE BEST!!   Seriously she brought the characters to life.  She read the snide comments that were written with just the right attitude and sass.    For real….In love I am with her narration.

I grabbed this book because I had audio credits to burn.  I admit I was shallow when I saw the cover.  Don’t judge we have all stopped for a pretty cover.  Anywho, I then read the blub and was like hrmmmmm lets give it a whirl.

I am so dang glad I did.  I was laughing so hard at scenes because Denise and Bree are totally me and my bestie.  I was also fanning myself because ….. JASE….MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Its gonna take a lot for me to dump him as my book boyfriend……for this series at least.  #BookWhore

I loved that fact this book was military but not so over my head military I was lost.  I loved that the characters all understand what it is like to return home after service trying to find a new normal after all they saw and witnessed while in service.  I loved the teasing of which branch you served in.  I loved the comradery they all had.

Jase and Bree meet at a bar.  Bree had just tossed her fiancé and his side piece out when she decided to drink her sorrows away with her bestie.  After an amazing night with Mr. Walking Orgasm she slips out the door.  Jase is not happy because he finally felt a connection.  He is going crazy and then she just shows up in his life again.  Mr. Super Alpha grabs her and won’t let her go.  Literally he grabbed her and it was hysterical!

I thought the story of the two of them dealing with falling in love and falling so fast was freaking them out.  I loved they knew what the other was dealing with.  I loved that Bree kicks Jase’s ass but Jase also is there to hold Bree when she falls apart.

The mystery of the story is that someone is harming people for hurting Bree.  I thought I knew the who and when we find out the why, it made my heart sad.  Menta Health is a serious issue and I loved how respectfully this was dealt with throughout the book.

I am super pumped for Denise and Chris.  This is going to be a crazy ride!

Tarina has spent her entire life in and around the military – first as a dependent and then as an enlisted Air Force member.

She writes contemporary and military romance about strong women and the men strong enough to love them. She draws heavily from her own military experience to create authentic characters who face real personal challenges.

Tarina is still active duty and a single mom of six-year-old twins. Her favorite hobby is sleep. She has delusions of retiring from the military and being a stay-at-home mom and full-time writer.

Adler Haley writes great sex…just not under her name. And certainly not about her experiences—or lack thereof. There’s no safer place to express herself than behind the obscurity of ghostwriting romance novels. By day, Adler’s perfectly content to blend in at her boring nine-to-five as an executive assistant. At least until she meets Joelher new boss who has her wondering if love at first sight is more than just fiction.

Joel Lewis is convinced that relationships bring out the bad in people. And marriage? The worst. Ask his parents. His siblings. And his ex-girlfriend. Needing a fresh start, Joel trades the Big Apple to take the helm at a struggling venture capitalist firm in Denver. After meeting his new assistant, he has to work overtime to fight his feelings and adhere to the no-relationships policy he’s instated for his life.

Armed with The F-Buddy Rules for Survival, a clever set of guidelines designed to keep their friendship fun and fun only, Adler and Joel find themselves whisked into the most entertaining ‘situationship’of their lives. But it’s not long before Adler discovers a major issue with the rules—they weren’t meant to protect her from falling in love. They were only ever meant to keep Joel from finding out.

Goodreads

Born in Colorado Springs, but raised all over (thanks military!), Kay Cove loves hiking on snow-capped mountains, blowing raspberries on her sons’ super pudgy baby bellies, and heated debates with her husband about topics such as the difference between turtles and tortoises, Marvel trivia, and most importantly—who misplaced the remote.

Kay, a former HR professional (survivor), startup junkie, and former CEO of the teeniest, tiniest virtual assistant company, has been writing pretty much forever. She finally decided at age thirty to start writing the stories she loves to read and to actually share the novels she poured countless hours, tears, sweat, and coffee into.

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

What the actual EFF did I read??  OMG these ladies totally blew me away.  I love a good anti-hero book thanks to Ryan introducing me to the genre a few years ago.  She grabbed me, shook me and said “Woman you need to read THIS BOOK!!”  So yeah, I was excited to see her and my Sister Wife team up to write one too.

First up, Dane….
I am just sayin’ (AND I told CC), I am all over him like White on Rice ladies so yeah don’t even think about it.  I am straight up warning you away NOW.  I am super claimy with my book husbands.

Ok back to Onxy….there is absolutely no reason why I should but I love the hell outta him.  As CC told me…He is a dick but a dick with a heart 😊  #NiceTagLine

Onxy is everything you need to say away from.  He does illegal business but it’s also kinda good illegal business so that makes it ok…..Yeah total stockholmed with him I tell ya.  Torryn AKA Collateral is just that…..she was in the wrong place and the wrong time with the wrong people.  She is forced and then agrees to stay to help her sister.  I mean when you find out why she openly agrees to say with her kidnapper, you would stay too.

I can’t begin to get into the plot because that would spoil EVERYTHING for you and trust me, YOU NEED TO EXPERIENCE IT.  Onxy and Torryn are a hell of a couple.  They both push and pull.  They both love and love hard.  They both are loyal to those they love and they both are lost with out the other.

The plot is insane and once you think you know it all, it gets a whole new level of insane.  Then you think ok its all good, I got this and then BOOM more crazy.  This book was not one you could put down.  Be ready to sit and read, read, read each and every page like I did.  After I was like WHOOOOOAAAA and then I immediately messaged CC to say WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME!!!!!!!

USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

#NewRelease #Vampire #Comedy – A Vampire’s Midlife Crisis , Misfits of New Orleans book 1 by Valerie Twombly

A Vampire's Midlife Crisis (Misfits Of New Orleans Book 1) by [Valerie Twombly]

Her life wasn’t all bad until she woke up a vampire.

Sabrina raised a daughter, started her own coffee shop, and bought her dream house in her hometown of New Orleans. If she had to complain about anything, it would be the seventh level of Hell hot flashes that come with being 53 years old. That is, until she wakes up a vampire.

Her body has never been more perky and her hair is a dream. Problems? Several. A vampire shouldn’t have hot flashes, mood swings that rival a rollercoaster ride, and the urge to drop into a dead sleep at 9:00 pm.
There is a God and he goes by the name of Christoph, the king of the New Orleans coven and a vampire who is hotter than her night sweats. Ready to jump his ancient bones, she manages self control. Barely. When she learns he can cure more than her animalistic urges, she will promise anything.

Enter the misfits. A succubus kicked out of Hell, an old as dirt reaper, a purple dragon whose hiccups light eyebrows on fire, and a cute as can be pooch that’s really a Hellhound. All occupants of the B&B, Fangri-La and Sabrina’s job is to turn Christoph’s new acquisition into a thriving business. Holy hot flashes, she may have sunk her fangs into more than she can handle.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I gotta admit I was nervous how this book would go.  Valerie writes such amazing books that are intense and full of stress so I was like “Can she pull off a comedy??”  DUDE she did it and she did it so well.  This book reminds me a lot of the comedy series from Robyn Peterman I read.

Sabrina is totally me…a mom, business owner, menopausal annnd a vampire????  Ok so I am not a vampire but yeah she wakes up and is a vampire.  Not cool right??  I mean she was turned to save her life but much like my luck, shit goes WHACK so she has to meet the Vampire King.  Christopher is so much fun.  They are so much fun.  Everything and everyone in the book are just fun.

For me that was a great change of pace from the normal book Valerie writes and I am guessing it’s a nice chance of pace for her too. I mean writing bout over the top situations and comedy would be a great change of pace.

My only “complaint” is I would have loved more but I totally look forward to more from this series.

Award winning and bestselling author Valerie Twombly grew up watching Dark Shadows over her mother’s shoulder, and from there her love of the fanged creatures blossomed. Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper.

When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and dog, in Northern IL.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I received a copy of this audio book from the publisher via NetGalley.

I was so excited when I received this audio book because I loved this story so far and needed to know how it all ends.  I have to say I don’t think I could ever get enough of Kash and Bailey.  The narrators, Emma Galvin and Joe Arden, were amazing also their voices captured each character perfectly. Between the story line and the voices of Emma and Joe I didn’t not want to stop this book at any time.  I had to keep going to find our what was in store next for Kash and Bailey.

My heart was breaking for Bailey at the beginning of this. Losing her mother was heartbreaking but having to watch her mother being murdered was horrendous. With everything that this woman has went through was awful to say the least. I loved Kash for his understanding of everything even of Bailey. The way he supported her, loved her and most of all new what she needed to overcome all this made my heart beat a bit faster for him.

UHG the secrets that this family held and didn’t let out had me on the edge of my seat. Really the twists and turns never stopped. Once you figured out the players and what may happen BOOM everything changed. There were plot twist after plot twist.  There was always something lurking waiting to come out and blow everything you thought was happening and why right out of the water.  I loved this family how they stick together and help one another even if they don’t want or need help they are always there.  The ending was the best to see how everything played out and how things ended.  Let me tell you I could never have expected how this all ended. I really don’t want to see this end.  I loved Kash and Bailey’s story but want so more. Even if it is to see what rolls the siblings have within the family.

#WOTR23 #Review Catnapped by the Catman: An Alien Abduction Standalone Romance (Interstellar Protections Agency Book 1) by Jade Waltz

Catnapped by the Catman: An Alien Abduction Standalone Romance (Interstellar Protections Agency Book 1) by [Jade Waltz]

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Ok, first I have a question to ask. Do you prefer dogs or cats? LOL!

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned from today, it’s that if I wanted loyalty, I should’ve gotten a dog. No matter how much I loved Loki, he was still a cat who could only serve himself. One thing was for sure: I wasn’t going to trust a feline ever again.”

Well, let me tell you something. When you are catnapped by a catman, trust is very difficult. However, when aliens and space travel are involved as well as a damned good explanation from the catman, it is extremely difficult not to fall head over paws for him!

Sarah is a single woman who has had poor luck with love in the past but absolutely adores her cat, Loki. One thing she was not prepared for was for her cat to make a deal with an alien cat to kidnap her. There were so many “miscommunications” that it was hard not to chuckle at their entire exchange. Once Sarah realizes she has been kidnapped and aliens do exist, she starts to try and figure out what her next steps are. Sarah and the catman cannot communicate so they are both fumbling around, which is super cute and adorable. The way that the catman and Loki banter back and forth is hilarious, but both ultimately have Sarah’s best interest at heart. Ultimately the point of kidnapping/catnapping Sarah is to save some of her friends and others that are traveling into an area where they could be attacked. I did expect there to be some more action but the action actually takes place away from their ship. Other than that, this story had a lot of funny moments, tons of banter, and a super sweet romance with a few really hot moments (bow chicka bow wow). I cannot wait to see what the next book unravels!
