#WOTR22 #ReleaseDay #Comedy #RomanticSuspense – Pandemonium in Peoria, Boba Book Babes Mystery book 1 by CJ Warrant and Rochelle Bradley

Pandemonium in Peoria (The Boba Book Babes Mysteries 1) by [Rochelle Bradley, CJ Warrant]

Hanging with the Boba Book Babes at the Pandemonium in Peoria book event is supposed to be fun… schmooze with her favorite authors, buy books, and take pictures with the sexy AF male cover models. What Gina DiCaprio didn’t expect is to see her high school crush, Austin Blackmoor, and to find her favorite author dead with a phallus sucker shoved down his throat.

Not only is she a suspect, but another murder occurs right under her nose and now more than one attendee is on the suspect list. With the missing assistant who might have the answers to the murders, Gina and the Boba Book Babes stumble onto clues that might help clear her name and uncover the killer.

Austin Blackmoor didn’t count on a murder–least of all two, happening at the Pandemonium event. But reconnecting with his first love is the only highlight of the weekend. With each passing hour, they rekindle their attraction while the killer is on their heels. Austin will have to do everything to save the woman he’s not willing to lose again.

Can the Boba Book Babes uncover the killer before someone else dies? Will Gina and Austin get a second chance at love? Stick around for the after-party to discover the truth behind the Pandemonium in Peoria


Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I was at a book signing when the authors told me about this hysterical romantic suspense/romantic comedy they were braining storming taking place at an author event.  They said it would be based out of the town my author event was in, so I was down to check it out.  The book was getting ready to go live when one approached me to see if I was still interested in reading.  I was pumped because what die hard reader wouldn’t want to read about a mystery at a book signing??

I will say I was a smidge saddened to see the description of my hometown, but I guess author liberties ya know. Any way.  I jumped into the story and immediately connected with the characters since I have been to a billion events all over.  I related totally to the BobaBook Babes and their love of swag, VIP tickets, stalking out my favorite author (though not so much for cover models personally) and everything associated with an event.

The banter between characters was very much like what me and my friends would be saying to each other.  We defo throw every cheesy pun at each other while we are having a fun time together much like our characters.  However, we have never had the issue of a murder let alone 2 murders to contend with.

The story was fun and light.  The banter between characters was spot on for what me and my friends would say/act.  The 2nd chance story with Gina and Austin was adorable and naughty which every romance reader wants.

I enjoyed the story of who done it.  They kept us guessing and throwing new suspects at us through the storyline.  I enjoyed the book but really loved the murder weapon for Mr. Stiff.  I totally laughed and will always think of that when I see them at events.

Rochelle puts an artistic spin on everything she does but there are two things she fails at miserably:
1. Cooking (seriously, she can burn water)
2. Sewing (buttons immediately fall back off)

She loves baking and makes a mean BTS (Better than Sex) cake. When in observation mode she is quiet, however, her mouth is usually open with an encouraging glass-is-half-full pun or, quite possibly, her foot.

She is a Bearcat, a Buckeye, an interior decorator, and fluent in sarcasm.

In 2008, when her youngest entered Kindergarten, she decided to get the stories out of her head. Midway through her first novel, hurricane Ike (yes, a hurricane in Ohio) rendered the laptop useless with a nine-day power outage. She didn’t give up, but continued to pursue her dream.

Every November Rochelle takes on the challenge of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo.org) where she endeavors to write 50,000 words in thirty days. You can often hear her cheering the Dayton area Wrimos (those who join her in this crazy pursuit).

Rochelle shares her home with a big black cat, an itty-bitty orange tiger kitty, her daughter, her son, and her Prince.

She loves to connect with readers. You can find her on Facebook (search for Author Rochelle Bradley), Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Deacon (Saints vs Sinners Series Book 1) by [CJ Warrant]

Deacon Saint’s father told him once that anything that gets his blood racing is worth the risk doing. He doesn’t factor in that he would have to face the tragic loss of a best friend, discover that his mother has Alzheimer and come face to face with a girl who broke his heart all those years ago. Nevertheless, coming back to my hometown in Tennessee after being gone for ten years—leaving behind a racing career in the MotoGP world—that Deacon would have to deal with the trials set before him in this small town. He’d rather take on the track, lose skin, break bones, and tear muscle than choose to open his heart.

Olivia Bane thought her life is perfect. Working as a nurse, a boyfriend who’s a doctor, and friends she cherishes. However, the second Deacon Saint comes back home, her ideal life shifts to utter chaos. Someone broke into her barn and a fire is set in Deacon’s, all the while learning a hard lesson of trust.

Deacon shattered Olivia before he left town and now he thinks it’s water under the bridge and is determined to reclaim her heart. She might be throwing off mixed messages, but it’s going to take more than sweet talkin’, fast motorcycles, and good old Southern country charm to win her back.


Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I saw the cover and was like HEEEEY GURL!!  Tell me MOOOORE!!!  I was super pumped when CJ let me have a copy to review.  I have read one book by her but have been looking for another to try.  Given this is a new series and it was about bikes, I was in.  But again, can we talk about the cover *Wipes drool* I am all in with that baby.

Alright so this story is a 2nd chance romance and I gotta say they are my jam.  I mean the fact Deacon and Olivia have this blazing chemistry was also a big win for me.  The two are totally head over heals in love but are both idiots and wont admit it because…..feelings/fear/pride??  I mean all of these things get in the way…oh yeah and Olivia’s DB Boyfriend but lets just eye roll him and move on.

Deacon comes home for his besties funeral when all the “guys” are there.  He finds out some old secrets and then discovers his family is in serious disarray.  All he wanted to do with make peace to his friend, bury said friend, and peace outta this town for good but when the script flips and the drama takes over Deacon and Olivia are in for a wild ride.

#WOTR22 #2ndChance #Contemporary #Audio – Sweet Reunion, Landry Brothers Book 1 by CJ Warrant

Sweet Reunion

On the brink of losing her bakery, Beth Monroe must accept help from Bryce Landry, the college love who broke her heart, or watch her dream fail.

After a broken engagement, Bryce gave up on the idea of real love until he walks into Beth’s bake shop. He has no clue why she is curt with him. But to get into her good graces, Bryce give her an offer she can’t refuse, which opens up both their hearts and expose the love they had for each other.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

This was the first audio narration I have heard from Lacy Laurel. She did a good job changing up the different voices from women to men. The females voices were a bit similar but through the conversation you could tell who was who.

This is a short novella I downloaded after finishing a super duper long…16 hour…..audio story. I needed just a quick in and out love story. This is a best friends to lovers story/2nd Chance Romance Story.

Beth and Bryce were besties in college who were both feeling the other but never crossed that line. When Bryce was leaving for Harvard there was some jealousy issues that got in the way of their possible “love connection” and they parted ways. Bryce was never really sure what happened to Beth and Beth was all in her feelings. Now I admit I have a few questions about the story. They are friends so her being angry that he was hooking up with someone was kinda a stretch for me. But Bryce tells the “hook up” two different ways so I was confused. First he says the girl asked for help and he went to her room. She came on to him and he declines…then he says they were making out and we went to have sex but sees Beth’s picture and declines said offer. So I think that would have been caught with beta readers and ARC readers to be better flushed out.
All in all the story was them finding each other again and admitting how they felt about each other in the past and figuring out what to do with the time they have now. I think this was a good story and enjoyable read. It could have been flushed out a bit more but I did enjoy listening when I was getting ready and driving to work.

CJ Warrant is a lover, a hater and sometimes a fighter for all she’s passionate about. She can’t exist without coffee, chocolate and a damn story brewing in her head. She was born an overseas Army brat, in a Korean Italian household but settled in the states at the ripe old age of five.
With a long career in the beauty industry, a wonderful marriage to a great man and three kids nearly all grown, her view of life is as such. Life is a journey; both good and bad, light and dark, but she takes it all in and learns from every experience life has to offer. She takes those crazy moments, stirs in the dark and brings her passion for words to life.
