#review #partofaseries Perfect Night (Mason Creek 4) by Terri E. Laine  

Emma Hawkins is sure her life is set. She’s finally leaving Mason Creek behind, the small town she’s lived in her entire life.

That is until her former high school crush, Aiden Faulkner, strides back into town. The hot new Deputy Sheriff still gives her butterflies and is in a perfect position to help as she deals with the mystery surrounding tragedy that has struck her life.

When she asks for his help, she knows it’s a lot for him to keep her request a secret. Only, the time they spend together doesn’t go unnoticed. Rumors threaten everything, including their growing connection.

Undeniable attraction has never been their problem.

Timing is.

With her not so perfect fiancé in the rearview mirror, it becomes impossible for Aiden and her to remain just friends.

They say love is patient.

And Aiden’s been patiently waiting to give Emma that one perfect night.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Emma came back home to show her Fiance her small town and to meet her dad. But after a fight her dad left the house and never came home next thing Emma knew she was having to plan his funeral and nothing made sense. Things were changing for her in more ways then one both her parents where gone, and now she had a house and her father’s bar in Mason creek and she wasn’t ready to give up either yet. Aiden came back to town after being with the LAPD but was ready to be home and took a job at the police station. They both had a thing for each other but it was never the right time but the feelings were there and everyone knew it. When Emma had a weird feeling that her dad didn’t die of a heartattack like they claimed she asked Aiden to help her off the records and to prove her father was murdered… will these 2 find their way into each other’s arm despite their being a wedding in Emmas future or will they hold onto their feelings and move on with their lives

Terri E. Laine, USA Today bestselling author, left a lucrative career as a CPA to pursue her love for writing. Outside of her roles as a wife and mother of three, she’s always been a dreamer and as such became an avid reader at a young age.

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Mariah was running from her abusive boyfriend and looking for a better life for her and her daughter, when they were in a car wreck in the middle of the night and rushed to Mason Creek hospital. Miller was the doctor on call when she was rushed in and then headed to surgery. Once out of surgery all Mariah could think of was were her daughter was and if she was safe, which she was. All Mariah could think about was hoping her ex wouldn’t fine them and wondering how she was going to repay everyone in town for their kindness to her and her daughter. Miller was starting to catch feelings for this single mom once she was settled in to his house after she got out of the hospital and rehab no stairs so it was perfect. Things are going great then they all find out things about her ex that she didn’t even know and has the whole town and state on the look out for this criminal. Will Mariah be able too keep herself and her daughter safe and not have her ex find them or will he be able to find them and get what he wants. This book was so good and had a few twist and turns I didn’t we coming. 

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.

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

Nate is a big time MLB on the off season back home in Mason Creek to fix up his family ranch after putting his dad in a retirement home. He plans on fixing up his childhood home so that he can bring his dad back to the house with the help of his brother and a at home nurse. One night at the local bar Nate was singing karaoke and a beautiful woman came on stage and sang a few duets with him, and that was all it took to get Cinderella to stay on his brain. Cinderella was actually named Avery and she wasn’t going to fall for Nate’s charm she knew how guys like him were and she wasn’t going to fall for it. Or would she get caught up in his charm? She knew who he was but he had no idea who she was. These two had a history well their fathers did, will these two become the star-crossed lovers of Mason Creek or will Avery revenge her father and get to ruin Nate in the meantime.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Perfect Mistake (Mason Creek 15) by C.A. Harms 


Trouble always seems to find Will Murphy. Or maybe it’s Will that’s the trouble. His disregard for his actions and his constant lack of responsibilities are his trademark.

One kiss from a sweet girl like Miley Reese may be exactly what he needs. It just might be the jolt of electricity that motivates him to get his act together.

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Miley was a shy and quiet girl stayed to herself and didn’t really have much. She didn’t have family her adoptive parent have both passed and she doesn’t want to believe she has family in the friends she has. Miley has been through a lot with her ex boyfriend she has a hard time trusting people. Will is the playboy of Mason Creek, never wanting to settle down and always finding someway to mess things up in his life. Ever since his dad passed away he lived at home and just cant seem to get his shit in order. But in a dark corner at Will’s brothers wedding these two were found locking lips and its been all Will can think of since then. Is that kiss the one that tamed the playboy and brings out the wild side of the shy girl or will it be the complete opposite. This book was so cute and the more i thought i was going to dislike Will the more i actually started loving him.

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast

Cole Jackson Mason Creeks biggest playboy around loves to joke and push everyone’s buttons. But he will protect, and give you the shit off his back if you needed it. Joey flew from Georgia to help her sister Charlee when she gave birth to her daughter, being there to pick up all the pieces back home after Charlee’s failed wedding but it lol worked out in the end she got her happily ever after and now it was Joey’s turn. Having a bad day Joey found herself in the bar drinking her dream apartment just fell through, she’s tired of making sure she don’t walk in on her sister loving on her husband again, Cole was there and offered her to move in with him. Thinking it was going to be easy to have a super cute roommate and nothing was going to happen, but it turned out to be a lot harder then either one of them thought. Will these two let their feelings get to them and give into temptation or will it seriously just be a friends living together no strings attached situation. OMG not only do i love Mason Creek and want too live there I’m in love with Cole Jackson, this is an amazing story and i just ugh love it words can’t decide how hilarious it is. 

Cary Hart hails from the Midwest. A sassy, coffee drinking, sometimes sailor swearing, Spotify addict, lover of all things books!

When not pushing women down the stairs in the fictional world, Cary has her hands full. Soccer mom in all sense of the word to two wild and crazy, spoiled kiddos, and wife to the most supportive husband. In addition to writing full time, she enjoys binge watching Netflix, laying around in her hammock and baking up cookies for her family and friends.

Cary writes real, raw romance! In her stories the characters deal with life’s everyday struggles and unwanted drama, they talk about the ugly and they become the broken. Everyone deserves a happy ending, but sometimes before you can appreciate the light, there has to be darkness. 

Growing up, if someone would have told her she would become a writer, she wouldn’t have believed them. It wasn’t until she got her hands on her first romance novel, that the passion grew. Now she couldn’t imagine her life any other way – she’s living her dream.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Rumor Going ‘Round (Lyrics and Love 3) by Samantha Lind

When rumors start circling,

Do you walk the other way?

Or give them something to talk about?

She was the one I always secretly wanted

But it was never meant to be,

I landed myself in the friend zone.

He was my high-school crush,

Who grew up into the single sexy dad,

Putting his life on the line with every fire he fought.

One spin around the dance floor has our friends talking,

Wondering if we could get any closer.

We blew the rumors off until one day, we really gave them something to talk about.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Tucker was a single dad who was a local firefighter. His daughter’s mom and him had a great co parenting relationship. He was all for wanting a relationship but wasn’t sure when it would happen so he just focused on his daughter and job.  Lindsay was a busy ER nurse and was basically the one who got away in Tuckers eyes even though they never really had a thing but they knew each other their whole life and always had that crush.  When all of their friend are out at the local bar and Tucker takes Lindsay out on the dance floor and is holding her real close. That how those rumors started to go around but they weren’t going to let that stop them they were gonna give them something to talk about. But will there busy life’s get in the way of their happiness and will Tucker’s daughter like having to share her daddy with someone else. This was such a cute story i loved Tucker and his daughter Paisley is the best. I love when books have kids in them just adds that extra cuteness to them.

Samantha Lind is a contemporary romance author. Having spent the first 27 years of her life in Alaska, she now calls Iowa home where she lives with her husband and two sons. She enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, reading, watching hockey (Go Knights Go!), and listening to country music.

#ReleaseDay #Series – Perfect Secret, Mason Creek Book #12 by Molly McLain

Perfect Secret (Mason Creek #12)

A fake relationship with a sexy cowboy in a small-town is never a good idea…

-Alana-

After high school, my plan was to leave the small town of Mason Creek and never look back. I thought I’d work my way through college while my long-time, bull rider boyfriend chased his rodeo dreams and took me along for the ride.

My own dreams of becoming his publicist and living the high life together on the PBR circuit were crushed when it became clear that my eight seconds was up. The buckle bunnies were suddenly more appealing than the girl with her nose buried in the books.

I’ve sworn off men, especially cowboys and bull riders.

That is, until I walk in on one in my shower, naked, wet, and built like he could break my heart… and my bed.

-Holden-

The rodeo has been my whole world, and all it took was one false accusation to bring it crumbling down. I cleared my name, but the organization I’ve given my life and my body to for the past seven years doesn’t give a damn. They don’t want the drama and right now they don’t want me.

That’s how I ended up in Mason Creek, hiding from the cameras while the dust settles and I can reclaim my reputation and my rank in the PBR. The last thing I need is to get messed up with a local girl, especially one who hates cowboys–bull riders in particular.

Our relationship may be just for show, but I see the opportunity for what it is…The chance to keep my secret a little longer and prove to Alana that maybe her problem with bull riders is simple…

She hasn’t ridden the right one yet.
