I don’t know how much more I can take. In the span of two weeks I have been told I am a rare omega, yanked from my pack by an old crone who says I need this journey to discover the powers I hold within Then the real bomb is dropped. I am cursed. When another pack alpha decides to snatch my true mate out from under me, my wolf and I take things into our own hands and call in reinforcements. I promise if that alpha harms a hair on her head, I’ll have his on a platter!
Things have gone to hell in a hand basket quick after Hallister becomes the new alpha of the River Pack. I must go against everything I am and everything I believe in to save my pack. I was resigned to do what is needed until my true mate shows up. Now my head and heart are at odds. The alpha of a border pack snatches me to use as a bargaining chip against my mate and the original omega. I will not become a pawn in this war. Now will I allow another person I love to sacrifice themselves to save me.
I receive this book from the author for an honest review.
When I met Stephen I was so in love with is strong persona. I loved meeting him in Wyatt’s book and so looked forward to him getting his HEA plus learning about the Omega power he was given.
Stephen and Harper’s love story is full of twists and turns with rival alphas and wars brewing. They sure don’t have an easy time of its for sure. The two also meet under unusual circumstances from Stephen’s Omega abilities. I have to say I loved the way the two meet and already start to form their true mate bond.
Stephen has been lucky to live with a happy pack and Harper had until….her alpha is killed and another alpha is forcing his will upon her to be his mate. Harper is much loved by her pack mates so she is doing everything she can to help save her pack while NOT losing herself in the process.
Stephen is so confused. His heart says to rush in and save his mate but with his Omega abilities he must learn to walk that fine line of safety and protection for all even if his mate is not safe.
Seeing the two work together and build a relationship of trust which soon turns to love and respect was amazing. I gotta say I am kinda looking Marcus over and wondering if he will be getting a book because he suuuuure is up my ally!!!
The story has you prepared to go one way and then BOOM another plot twist was thrown in the story. I was like WHOA!! Good one Miranda!!
Basically, what I am trying to say without giving away any part of this awesome plot is, you need to read some Stephen. All you Wyatt lovers like me will be excited to see him and Natalie return. I love seeing those two and seeing their love story further evolving!!
Mother to two boys, 3 four legged babies, and wife to a loving husband who doesn’t mind the extra voices in her head. Miranda grew up on a dairy farm in Illinois, but calls Portland, TN home now. She is an avid reader, coffee addict, and loves her day job working at the local public library. Though her true passion is in creating her own worlds, characters, and stories for her readers.
Detective Drake Lewis is tough, focused, and unbending. He has no problem keeping his workaholic professional life completely separate from his lonely personal life. Drake has never met a man who could pull him from his job.
Until he does.
Liam Walters is a construction foreman with a painful past. He’s happy with himself and what his life has become. When his path once again crosses with Drake’s, Liam is willing to take whatever Drake can offer him.
I received a copy of Buried Secrets from the author. This is my honest review.
Drake works as a detective. He has never been one to commit. He’s gay but he’s not out at work so not getting close to anyone works for him. He’s satisfied with his no strings attached hookups and doesn’t have to explain himself to his coworkers. Life is good.
Liam is a very yummy construction foreman. He doesn’t hide who he is. He and Drake once had a fling, so when their paths cross at a crime scene, they decide to continue the fling until they get bored with it.
The chemistry between Drake and Liam is FIRE!!! *fans self* I just wanted them to be together. Liam was catching feelings. Buuut the hard headed detective wasn’t ready to pull that trigger. The question is- did he come to his senses? Or mess up something that had the potential to be amazing?
This is AD’s first romantic suspense and I flipping loved it. She writes suspense well. I really enjoyed this edge-of-your-seat thriller. It kept me guessing and was the perfect binge read.
A.D. Ellis is an Indiana girl, born and raised. She spends much of her time in central Indiana as an instructional coach/teacher in the inner city of Indianapolis, being a mom to two amazing school-aged children, and wondering how she and her husband of nearly two decades haven’t driven each other insane yet. A lot of her time is also devoted to phone call avoidance and her hatred of cooking.
She loves chocolate, wine, pizza, and naps along with reading and writing romance. These loves don’t leave much time for housework, much to the chagrin of her husband. Who would pick cleaning the house over a nap or a good book? She uses any extra time to increase her fluency in sarcasm.
A.D. uses she/her or they/them pronouns.

When Rubi finds herself out on a singles cruise headed for the Bahamas, she can’t help but to wonder how her life has gone so horribly wrong. Many speed dates later and one drunken night on the deck sends Rubi head over heels, literally. She finds herself in the cold water of the Atlantic watching the boat she was cursing not long ago, sail off into the distance. Stranded in the middle of the ocean, she knows it’s only a matter of when she dies, not if. When three gorgeous identical strangers show up out of nowhere, Rubi is certain she is drunk and hallucinating. As they whisper dark promises in her ear and drag her into the dark abyss, she says goodbye to her pathetic life. Little does Rubi know, she is about to be thrust into a world full of magic, centuries old prophecies, sea monsters, and mermaids.
Love me some mermen! I love the premise of this story! Rubi is a hot freaking mess. She is on a singles cruise, gets a bit tipsy, and falls off the ship. She has chalked it that she is going to die. She wakes up in a swanky room with three incredibly handsome men. She thinks she had a crazy one night stand and is still on the cruise ship. Oh the things she feels and how she reacts to finding out that the three handsome men are actually cursed meren….and her mates….and then finding out about her true past! Oh the list goes on and on. She is the hope for these mermen to break the curse and bring life back to their realm. Then she realizes just how comfortable and at home she is. She is to be their queen, but has absolutely no queen-ish mannerisms. She is an absolute riot! Her hunky mermen all have crazy different personalities and each one worships her like the queen that she is. You really get to see their love for each other when other characters are introduced.
I was immediately sucked in with Rubi and her sarcasm. Then there are the three Z’s (the handsome mermen) and their crazy different personalities with all of their hotness. Smush this all together and you have a wonderful new world, full of intense love, laughter, and some hawt sexy time. Oh, and don’t let me forget the action. There are monsters out there that are full of hatred and nastiness. The battle between good and evil is never ending. I love how this story ended and am looking forward to the next in this series.
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.
Faced with unthinkable changes, Nolan Bishop seeks to come to grips with his new version of mortality. While his relationship with Charity Sheridan was already rocky, he’s now facing a whole new set of challenges as they continue to try to find a balance to the love that has just begun to blossom between them. Meanwhile, her twin Eva has violent vengeance on the mind, and the succubus won’t settle for anything less than Nolan’s ultimate demise. Heading back to New Orleans at the request of the BSI, Nolan will have to face Joel Reichert, the old vampire whose oldest friend is now dead because of him. But is Joel really an enemy?
A new, young friend in the Rebel Riders group gives Nolan a much needed reprieve from the stress of his new way of life. While Archie and the Riders don’t really know the full extent of Nolan’s new problems, he continues to hide the horrific things he has to do in order to stay alive. Will Nolan come out better than he was before Eva tried to take his soul, or will he crack and break under the pressure once he realizes what the succubus has really done to him?
“You better become good with weird, dude, because weird is the new normal where you’re headed.” I couldn’t have said it better.
Soul Redemption starts right where Soul Rebel left off. Nolan and Charity haven’t had much time together and they are still learning about each other. Nolan is not feeling like himself. He thought they broke the Succubus curse, but maybe not. As Nolan is trying to figure this out, he goes on a ride with the Rebel Riders to check out some moonshine making vampires in the bayou. He finds that he has some things in common with Kovah, one of the Rebel Riders. Between dealing with the possibility of having vampire traits and having a new love with Charity, Nolan can’t seem to catch a break. After another unexpected trip to New Orleans, this time with Kovah, Eva rears her ugly head to Charity and then things get crazy.
Very similar to the first story, this is fast paced with great camaraderie for some fun times. There is never a dull moment with this story. I did not see the turns that the story took and it kept me on my toes. The banter between Kovah and Nolan is great and I absolutely loved being able to get to know Kovah better. And the end! OMG the end! I just can’t even begin to give you a hint on how this ends without giving it away. By the time the story was over I was beside myself and in need of more!

Love and Neck Ties
Blurb – For Samuel Grayson, everything is black or white. As a funeral director, there’s no room for in-between. He’s accustomed to dealing with life and death, though he’s definitely more comfortable with the latter. Especially when it comes to a chaotic, petite, feisty ball of energy. Freedom Rayne. Samuel’s pretty sure her goal is to make his life hell, or so it appears. When Samuel boards a flight to Las Vegas for his sister’s wedding, the last thing he expects is to share it with the one woman who drives him crazy.
Freedom is eccentric and completely content with it. Floating around from job to job, she finds peace and tranquility in everything she does, including tormenting poor, uptight Samuel Grayson. When she finds herself on the same flight as him for her best friend’s wedding, she sees this as the perfect opportunity to get under his skin, something she tries to do every chance she gets. The problem is the more time she spends with him, the more she likes him.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not for Samuel and Freedom. Will they be able to forget about their trip when they return to Rockland Falls? What if one mistake turns out to be the best thing ever?
Blurb – The beginning… The beginning is always the best place to start when reflecting on what has been. Thinking back on it, my life had been perfect. Middle class girl in high school with a happy home life. My life had been full of nothing but promise. Life was good. Everything was great. And then my whole world went to shit. In one day. The disease came first. Then the dead. It was a fight for my life every single day from the start. But I was different from all the rest. I had heard my mother’s screams while watching my sister become one with the undead. All the while feeling like there was absolutely nothing I could do to help them. It killed me. What’s more, it changed me. I did everything I possibly could to survive on my own. And then I learned how to survive with others. By being their Queen. Their Zombie Queen. And by being the most feared woman they ever came in contact with.
This is a WhyChoose novel full of zombies, a sword wielding badass chick, and an army of dudes. Recommended age 17+ due to content and language.
Blurb-—A completely ridiculous way to fall in love. You Tube influencer and syndicated morning talk show host, Cricket Kelly lives life with purple tips on her red locks and unicorn socks on her feet. Theodore Brooks lives by the numbers with nary a hair out of place. They meet between boxing bags and even though opposites attract, Cricket’s father is being implicated for money laundering, and Theo is the lead investigator on the case. Will four rounds be enough to discover true love? Or will disastrous dates end their chance at happiness? Find out with this slightly silly but absolutely fun fight for love
Blurb – I’m forced to choose between life and death in two hells that I can’t escape.
Facing a prison sentence on a mysterious, unknown island with my infant daughter, I try to lay low and fly under the radar during my term, but Officer Matthew Kent has his sights locked in on me from the moment we have our first encounter. I find myself trapped in his private lair where my worst nightmare begins.
Handsome, obsessed, and haunted by his past, he’ll never let me go. Confined with my captor, love is no longer a choice because without him, I might not live long enough to make it out of here alive. My only instinct is to survive. There’s just one problem with our forbidden relationship: people are watching––and talking about it. Someone will die. Someone must die. But who will it be first?
Read this dark prison romance novel to find out who will make it out alive
Blurb – Ran Walker can’t outrun his demons. After watching the woman he loved marry another man, he’s given up on finding that happiness for himself. Until a chance encounter with a fiery redhead challenges everything he thought he knew…
Elle Sullivan is done bending to the expectations of others. Now, she’s determined to live life by her own terms. Even if that means taking a chance on the burly biker that helped her fix a flat tire. He’s the exact opposite of any man she’s ever dated—yet the heat between them is undeniable.
Can Ran and Elle shrug off the shackles of his haunting past and her constricting family name to find the freedom of a blissful life together? Or will the ill-fitting facades of who they are supposed to be force them apart?
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
LAWD!!! Sammy and Free!! You two have been killing me this series!! I mean GAH!! I was so excited when I learned that Free was going to be Samuel’s HEA because honestly, I cannot imagine anyone else with him. As opposites as they are, they fit together perfectly in so many ways.
Samuel has always been annoyed yet intrigued by his sisters’ best friend who was essentially adopted into the family. He, however, also couldn’t stand her constant teasing and chaos of a world. Samuel is Mr. White and Black. Everything has a place and life isn’t messy. Life is orderly. Boy does Free rock his world right off its axis.
Freedom is the queen of the hippie life. She doesn’t eat meat. She doesn’t believe in animal testing on products. She is the most reliable if not slightly late friend you can ever want so why is she so attracted to her sister older brother. The man who wears ties to family functions…never mind what those ties do to her libido!!!
These two have fought the chemistry so long so when they are thrown together in the Vegas for Samuel’s sister/Free’s best friend Harper’s wedding as the only single friends, they kiiiinda lose control and kiiiind awake up a mess. Apparently, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas!!
I loved seeing Free be so sure in the decision to stay with Samuel and convince him she was the right person for him. Seeing Samuel so conflicted but stepping out of his norm to TRY this life with Free was adorable. I loved the scene with him in the shop…hilarious!! The entire scene cracked me up.
The conflict of the story made my eyes a bit leaky because we all wanted to punch Samuel. He has lived by his strict controlled world. He is having a hard time learning to trust his heart and not follow his brain. Free is the most amazing character in the series and when we finally got to SEE what her life was before this meeting Harper and her family, it was sad. We understand why family is so important to her and why she clings to those she loves so fiercely.
The epilogue was amazing, and the bonus epilogue made my heart sing!! I was so happy by that little chapter because …well we all needed to see this happen and see the HEA!!
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing and crazy good this story is. The first chapter will have you on the edge of your seat. My heart was in my throat listening to Emerald tell you about the day everything changed for her. If that chapter does not keep you totally enthralled, then when you hear the description of the life and surroundings Emerald has…I felt my skin crawling because it was so tense and so claustrophobic. I was dying but in heaven dying!! It was totally a good thing!
This book is so fast paced at times with so much action and then other times we are feeling the despair and fear of Emerald. We know its been 16 months and we know she is sad, lonely and scared. When the Sam appears I admin I was scared outta my mind because women aren’t treated the best in these worlds and Emerald knows this first-hand. As the other guys start to show Emerald they are not the bad guys and can be trusted, we see her open up and hope beyond hope she had a safe place. A Family to call her own. Complete with a crazy Granny!!
The story is a lot of interpersonal relationships and dealing with the all the men and one Emerald. But when Emerald makes some proclamations, I was like GET IT GIRL!!! When our family is starting to come together and starting to find a rhythm, chaos finds them and its not even the crazy girl or the wild man who bring it home.
I loved the action and loyalty this family shows one another. But sweet Baby Jesus if you ladies don’t write another book, Imma be broken. I need some more time with some of the guys and Emerald.
I read the first chapter and was messaging Jillian how hilarious this book is. Seriously I snort laughed so many times in this book!
Cricket is so damn funny and off the wall, but I loved her so much. Once you get past her wild and crazy side you see a woman who wants to be loved for her but is so scared of being loved. Her life hasn’t been great, and she hides it well. However, her insane attraction to her friend’s brother changes that for her in an instant.
Theo is a total sick in the mud. He goes boxing with his sister and takes notice of the wild instructor immediately. When she just shoves her way into his life, he is not happy but also not unhappy about it. The only issue is…he can’t get involved with her given he is investigating her father’s dirty dealings.
The dates the two go on…had me in stitches!! I mean shut up!! I couldn’t stop giggling while reading!! The story of Theo’s investigation takes on the majority of the end of the story but seeing them try to be together through it all was well worth the read.
Seriously I would love to read a book about Jessica, Theo’s sister, because this insane family needs more wild in their lives.
I receive this book from the author for an honest review.
Ok fraaaannz!! I am a dark reader but I am a scaredy cat dark reader…meaning…if its super dark I hide and cry. If its super dark, I freak outta my mind. Ok so now you know what kinda whimp reader I am. Lemme say, THIS BOOK I was totally rooting for the couple and not at all sad about what was happening. LOL
Vic and Henry are totally in a bad spot and get caught stealing. Now this is way way way back when Australia would send entire families to the jail if the parents were caught. So Vic and Henry along with baby Lizzy are facing this jail time. (You get the prequal for the story here https://www.authorvivianward.com/ )
The couple are bound and determined to last the 9 month journey and if they get separated, they will keep their heads down and noses clean. Well that is a great plan IN THEORY, but Vic soon becomes the eye of Marine Officer Kent’s eye.
Matthew Kent is not a great guy….initially. Yeah, he is forcing himself on Vic but soon they two do form a bond. Now I know people will scream STOCKHOLM SYNDROM, but I don’t think so. I think they really and truly grow to love each other. Matthew has cared for Lizzy and Vic while also looking for her husband but coming up short.
They two must overcome a lot while on the journey to the prison’s new camp. They wonder if they can make it ago and what will happen once they do arrive at the island. Right when we think we know what will happen, Vivian throws a giant couple of twists and turns and I was like DAYUM GIRL!! Why you gotta do me like this!!! LOL
Once they boat makes way to the mainland Vic has a lot of new things to navigate and new worries besides what she has been worrying about the entire journey. I legit cannot even begin to discuss what happens on the island because HELLO SPOILERS are not my jam. But if you like darker books and storied with crazy twists and turns with yummy anti-heros and sweet heros, then this is a book for you.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Friends!! Ran has been on my mind since I read When you Where Mine back last fall. I mean this dude is a hot mess of loyalty and family but also heartbreak and feeling less then.
You don’t need to read the previously mentioned book BUT to know Ran and his heart, I highly suggest it. When Elle comes and knocks him on his big burly ass, you will appreciate it all the more. Ran has only loved Harper and after the heartbreak of losing her to Ash, he has given up on finding anyone. He knows he is a felon and who wants to marry or be with a guy like that? He is gruff and rough around the edges plus he is totally pushing away all his friend. But he is definitely the one guy you can trust to keep a woman safe.
Elle is over it all. After walking away from her fiancée and starting life over in this small town, she too is over dating. When an accidental tasing of Ran leads Elle to wonder about the hot stranger, they both think they will never see the other.
When Elle comes barreling into his life by helping and befriending his sister Nona, who also is a hot mess and I am dying to know her story with Ben, the two start a “friends with benefits” relationship. Each is afraid of the day the other will call it quits but is secretly falling head over heels with the other.
When miscommunication and self-doubt cause the two to separate, I was ready to nut punch Ran. I was glad to see Harper come and knock some sense into him with the help of Ash. These two are a perfect fit and they need to open their eyes and stop worrying about the fears in their heart.
I am such a huge fan of these characters. I admin the previous book was one of my favorite last year so this book was a very anticipated book by me. I can saw 110% this book did not let me down. I loved getting to know Ran and all his “faults” even more. But I really loved the sassy and fiery red head named Elle who helped him overcome his fear of being less then. But yo, I really freaking loved Gigi!!!!
Well this story was fun! I was looking for something short and hot to read. So I went through my list of favourite authors who write the shorties and came across this one. And it’s a menage! Even better!
The Cortez men were on fire! They grew up together and end up being business partners as well but they were missing something. A woman.
Stella was desperate to make ends meet when it came to her father. Having a gambling problem led his daughter to the two men who swore to do anything and everything to have her between them. Literally.
This story is book one in the Mistress Auctions series. It’s fun, short, and spicy! Perfect for nights where you just want to curl up with a glass of wine and disappear into another world for a bit.
She was young.
But then there was him.
We had been best friends for years. We lived together. Rode together. Shared women. Together. And it still wasn’t enough. Not for him and especially not for me.
He was mine.
I was his.
She was ours.
Meadow Rodriguez strutted into our lives and looked at us like we were all that mattered.
While I wanted to dominate her, he wanted to submit, and she wanted both.
I took control, giving her everything she needed and at the same time, grew closer with Shade. My best friend. My partner. My life. Although we were close, there was still a wedge between us.
I was terrified to give him what he needed.
Sunny was intense.
I was new.
They were in love but wouldn’t admit it.
Guilt resonated on Sunny’s shoulders.
The weight of Shade’s feelings rested on his.
And I was the glue that would bring them together.
But little did I know, that I would end up falling in love.
With both of them.
I receive this book from the author for an honest review.I read this and could not find it in me to write the review right away because I was a hot mess afterwards. JM knows how to write a story that gets your heart pumping then tears it right from your chest.
Meadow finds herself in the arms of two older men, Shade and Sunny, in a biker bar. These three have a connection that is off the charts. Shade and Sunny are best friends but when Meadow walks in everything clicks. They all have issues they need to work through but each are patient with one another.
This was like getting to the last piece of the puzzle and maneuvering it until it clicks into place and everything fits perfect. Then realize you cannot leave it on the table forever. Now I wait for the next book to see more or all these people and maybe a glimpse at what happens next for Meadow.
A few of my favorite quotes:
Even if this was just for fun, I refused to let them go because I knew that no matter what, no other man could ever make me feel this way.
I only wished we would have met Meadow long ago so she could give me the strengths form the very beginning to take this to the next step.
