Twinsie Melinda favorite reads from 2021

Writers on the River Attending Authors: Mary Martel, Michel Prince and JM Walker

Its that time again we closed the door on 2021 and starting 2022.  My 2021 was a little crazy and I didn’t get as much reading in as I would have liked. It is hard to escape into books when things in real life are crashing around you. So instead of giving you my top 5 for June through December I decided to post a few of my favorites that I read this year.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

First up anytime, we have scenes with Rytsar and Sir my heart goes pitter patter…this book doesn’t disappoint in that department.

This book full of family.  We are visiting our family in Russian and Italy plus our family in the states.  Family is blood and those you choose to love unconditionally.

When we visit Rytsar and Faelan in Russia, we see more of the loss Faelan is feeling but also revel in the love with our favorite Russian.  Seeing our Wolf so lost was sad and heartbreaking followed by the love and cherishing done by Master and Rytsar was enjoyable.  But seeing Lilly was kinda weird and scary.  The fact she is still so unbalanced is scary.   Red, Ya got me worried here sis!!

Visiting our family in Italy and learning of the secrets of the past was so sad and made us readers want to snuggle with Nonno and Nonna even more.  However, seeing them embrace Thane and Brie’s kids was so heartwarming.  When we learn more about Alonzo and the scenes that followed were super sexy and yummy to this readers heart.

Our American family is struggling and dealing with heartbreak and fears of the future, but I loved what we see from Master Anderson.  I mean he is just the most fun side character in the series IMO.  Plus Lea!!  GAH!!  I can’t wait to see what happens next there.

As we are used to reading there is heart and love in every page along with some mystery and suspense with how the book ended.  I do have to wonder what will come of Mary.  I see glimpses of her and what she could be and hope that she gets an HEA she deserves to have at some point.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I received a copy of this book for an honest. review.

I was so excited to get a copy of this book, I always love seeing the adventures we go on with Brie.  Brie and Sir took us on one heck of an adventure.  They took us to Russia to see my favorite man Rytsar and then to Italy to see Nonna and Nonno.

We learn so many things about Sirs family and friends. I had so many emotions going on in this one. I loved seeing Rytsar, Nonna and Nonno seeing Brie and Sir’s son for the first time.  My heart went out to Faelan when he saw the baby.  Sir has to face so many hard memories and finding out secrets of his family.

I enjoyed seeing everyone.  We got a glimpse of so many and got small updates on each of them.  One thing is constant in these books the love Sir and Brie have for their friends and family.  No matter what they have to face they face it together as a family. I feel I need the next book the ending of this one has me on the edge of my see to see what is going to happen next.

#NewRelease – The Cowboys Secret by Red Phoenix

The Cowboy's Secret

“Kiss my whip, darlin’…”

I’m not your average cowboy. While I may have tight jeans and a big “belt buckle”, my real talent lies in using my bullwhip to pleasure the ladies.

Known for my special brand of kink and my sense of humor, I have worked hard to carve out my own path, until the day I get the call from my father that our family is about to lose the Anderson ranch.

I am willing to sacrifice everything in my search to find a solution that will save my family’s homestead. In the process, I am introduced to an extraordinary person.

Little do I know that my solution will involve this mysterious stranger who demands I keep a secret.

This secret will change everything

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Oh Master Anderson!!  I love going back into time to see my favorite jokester grow his bond with Thane and Durov.  We see Master Anderson and all the beginning of the love with his whip *shivers*.  We see him becoming the man we all love.  I mean how do you not love a man who can sweep you off your feet with cooking and spankings *Wink*

I enjoyed seeing him become the respectful and loyal friend we love in the main series.  I loved seeing his past and knowing how it shapes his future.  I enjoyed seeing how him grow his skills but what I loved was his special relationship with Dominus.  When we see him enter the training center it was so exciting.  I love seeing the “before” scenes.  We all know what happens once Brie enter but seeing before is mesmerizing!!

I mean seriously there is nothing about this book I didn’t love.  Master Anderson just makes me smile.  He warms your heart and hope that you can find someone to make you feel as special as he makes the submissives in his care.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

I do enjoy when I see a new Red book shows up. This one is about the one and only Cowboy Master Anderson. I do enjoy reading about this happy go lucky fun-loving jokester. I never know what I’m going to get with Red is it going to be present time and see the character get his HEA or will we go back to the beginning to get a glimpse of what influenced them into the character they are today.

This story takes us back to Master Anderson and college days with Thane and Durov. Anderson loves with all his heart and projects his feelings.  He is all about his family, no matter if it is his blood relative or the family he picked in Thane and Durov.

We get to see Master Anderson expand his talents and learn more about himself.  He finds himself in a new situation with Thane and Durov away and the secret he is holding onto.  Master Anderson dives into his studies after making a slight change to his major.

I love reading about his antics and to see some of his prank’s backfire is a hoot. I love that his family is so close and you can see where he gets his humor from. Just like when Thane visited the farm was memorable so was the time that Durov spent there.  I may have teared up just a bit in a few of Durov interactions with Andersons family.

We get a sneak peek at the Submissive Training Center and the first meeting of Master Anderson and Tono. We are also introduced to a Dom, Dominus, that mentors Master Anderson and becomes someone that Anderson holds dear to his heart.

I enjoyed seeing the fun-loving side of Master Anderson but we get to see he is so much more in this book.  He is determined knows what he wants and will do what ever it takes to get it done. He knows when he needs to step back and spend a little extra time with his family. We would all be lucky to have a Cowboy like Master Anderson as a brother.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes:

“That’s the way of family. Whether by blood or by choice, when one suffers, we all suffer.”  ~Master Anderson

“You know, son, you’re defined by the company you keep, and you have exceptional taste in friends.” ~Mr. Anderson … can I say this speaks to me the most my father used to tell me all the time when I was a teenager, “you are who you run with, so choose your friends wisely.”

The Ties That Bind (Brie's Submission Book 22) by [Red Phoenix]

“His touch is like magic…”

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Oh man, this series is just what my heart needs.  It is always the perfect blend of all love, hearts and happiness mixed with sexy times, twists and villains!!

This book picks up with the loss from the last book.  GAH, I’m still just as broken up now as I was then.  But we are moving forward with protecting everyone from Lilly, destroying Greg, saving Mary, plus the birth of the newest Davis member.

So much happens in the story.  I loved seeing Tono and Autumn.  I want to know what’s up with Lea and Hunter?  Will Todd ever be ok again?  Is our favorite Russian going to be back soon?  But mainly what is going on with the movie!!!  The storyline of Brie’s movie was the biggest storyline, and I was so excited about it.  I mean what are they going to do about Greg and his control over Hollywood.  Plus, what can Brie do to move her documentary forward without Hollywood support since she had been blacklisted.

But of course, the story of the love between Brie and Sir is always showcased.  I loved their trip back to the training center to help submissives understand a healthy D/s relationship.  It’s like coming full circle for them and where they started.

The birth of the newest member was beautiful.  I loved everything about it.  I will not even begin to think about spoilering anything but the name made my heart melt right along with the everyone else’s reaction to it.

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

Red has such an amazing way of telling Bri’s story. The love that all these friends have for one another is incredible. If someone needs help, they are all there ready to pitch in no matter what.

Bri has so many things going on and with her big heart she wants to help everyone. There is so much going on in this book. We are picking up where the last book left off. Man, there are so many pieces to pick up right now after the loss they all endured. Poor Todd he deserves so much more right now.

Bri is dealing with her new movie and wondering if it will get a chance to be on the big screen. Also, she has her unborn baby to think about. Bri still has Lilly on her mind and what will happen there.

Rystar maybe a sadist but he has a heart of gold and will do anything for any of them. There are so many amazing scenes in this book not just between Bri and Sir but more so everyday interactions between all of them. It was so good to see Tono & Autumn. I am intrigued with Lea and Hunter too.

This group of friends show us that family is not always blood but how you let into your circle of the best most supportive family anyone can ask for. I always feel home with this family and I’m so ready for more.  I need to know how things will go for Failen, how will the Lilly thing work out and will Gregg try to sabotage Bri more and wonder if Sir and Bri will do more demonstrations to help subs understand the true D/s dynamic.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

This book has a lot of highs followed by looooows or low.  I mean Brie and her “family” definitely are going through some trying times in the continuing story of Brie and her Sir.

Everyone is moving forward : Wolf pup and Kylie are in a great place, Mary is moving against Greg, Lea seems to be happy with Hunter, Master Anderson and Shay are living a good life with the cats, and Rytsar is happy being everything to the Brie, Sir, and Hope.  We are seeing the Davis family prepare for the addition of the next wee one and it’s all looking good!

We do see more of Lilly and we are worried about the decisions the group are making over what to do with the evil she beast.  I admit I suspected this book would be all about Lilly since that is where it began but I was so destroyed to see the sadness of the novel hit.  I can’t spoil what sadness happens but friends I was so hurt by what happens.  I mean WHY!!  Red girl.  I mean NOOOO!!!!!  Red for real….NOOOOO!!!

So yeah when the sadness of the novel hits, you will be just destroyed for our family.  We will see one of our own struggle and push everyone away.  Be ready because….yeah….*Sniff*.

K we gotta move away from the sadness and discuss the “good scenes” of the story and yup they are gooooooood.  This story is another great read of “good stuff” and making us fall even more in love with our family of Training Center peps.  I can’t wait for the next story because I need to see the sadness storyline resolved.

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

I loved catching up with my favorite people.

The book starts right off with a hot BANG!!  Rystar, Thane and Brie are going away for a few days to spend time on their private island for a weekend of sexy fun!!

Right off the bat, I admit I was curious about the question Thane asks Rytsar while the three were on vacation at the beginning of the book.  I mean….I thought Rystar would jump at the chance so I am wondering what is in store for him??

The rest of the book has a lot going on.  I enjoyed seeing Tono and hearing about the developing bond between Autumn and him.  They are the perfect blend together.  I was so happy for Lea and her new hottie Hunter.  She so needs someone after Liam and all he did to her.  Master Anderson and Shay are adorable too.

The storyline of Brie’s documentary and how it plays into Mary’s story line made me sick to my stomach.  That girl cannot catch a break.  I mean we have a love hate relationship her and I.  But this plot twist I did not see happening at all…..

The story line about Lilly made me nervous because we don’t’ need her causing more trouble for our family.

The end of the story was a great cliffhanger because I wanna know who is making moves and who is going to be the secret benefactor to help get things done!!!

Received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

This story jumps right in with a bunch of hotness and travels. Sir, Brie and Rytsar are jetting away to their private island. I love the connection that Brie, Sir and Rytsar have but my heart still hurts for Rytsar. After Brie has been spoiled by these too it is off to Italy. There are a few tears and joyous moments while seeing Nonno, Nonna and the rest of the family. My heart ached for Nonna and Nonno. However, Brie receives and amazing and unexpected gift from a friend of Sirs father. Cannot give too much away but what an amazing thing.

Brie has grown so much as a woman through these books. She has really come into her own. She has learned to stand her ground, believe in herself and not let people walk all over her. She will have to put up a fight for her documentary.

I enjoy when we get to see the rest of the gang. Amazing to see Autumn and Tono and how much she is blossoming. I’m happy for Lea she has had ups and downs but maybe Hunter is different. My heart breaks for Mary she has had a hard life and it needs to get better for her. I am ready for more I need to find out if all is going to work out because with the plot twist at the end left me in turmoil.

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

What an awesome surprise!!  I legit was clapping so hard when I got this ARC.  I love love love this addition to the series.  This book shows so much love and relationship growth from Sir and Brie but also from the entire gang.

First up, Rytsar is the best in this book and I so want this heart to be won by someone but at the same time selfish me wants him to stay with Brie and Sir.  I mean they are a hot threesome when they scene together.  But his and Samantha’s moment made my heart flutter.  Samantha needs to do some serious reflections about her life and choices.

Sir….he was so destroyed by the holiday but seeing him embrace the traditions again and even adding his family flair was perfect.  He truly is a generous Master to Brie but also to all the people he calls his family.

What???  Does Lea have a love interest??  Did we see a love connection in the making???  I mean I am ok with that and so can’t wait to read more of her and HIM!!!

Oh Mary, *Sigh* I love you and want you to figure your life out.

Brie and Hope are the heart of this book.  Hope is experiencing her family and all the love they have for each other.  Brie and her overwhelming love just shine in this book.  There are so many scenes where we see the old naïve sub but then to see her shining as a confident, married, collared sub.  It just makes me want to go back and reread the entire series again!!!

The short glimpses into the other Doms and Subs we have grown to love in the series made this holiday loving girl happy.  The Training Center scenes were the BEST.  Be ready for some hawt reads!!!

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

A return to our training center family!!!  FINALLY!!  I enjoyed the spin off all about the Doms and their rise to who they are, but this is what I have been waiting for!!  More Brie, Sir, Hope, and the gang of characters that make this series everything.

This book picks up right with Rytsar coming home from Russia.  The threesome takes no time in reacquainting themselves with each other due to his long absence.  Friends, its was so good but the scenes between the three grow more intense through the book.

The three are dealing with Thane and Brie’s move closer to Rytsar plus Brie finishing her next movie.  But we also got to see Lea and even a bit of Mary.  Lord Mary is a mess and Lea is recovering from her wounded heart still.  I want to see Brie’s girls happy like Brie and hope it comes sooner then later for the girls.  Each one is fighting demons and they both need a HEA!!!

Rytsar has been through so much and yet it seems he has more trials to overcome.  He is pushed away from our couple and they all need to recenter with the news that might keep him away from them again.  Friends my heart was aching for them all and when everything comes out, again I was broken!!

Reconnecting with the training enter alumni was wonderful especially when they all come to support Brie at the end of the book about her next movie!!

This book was everything I needed.  Seeing the threesome growing and bonding even more was amazing.  It was something I didn’t think was possible and yet they did.  Any reader of the series will be thrilled to read this next installment.  I am super excited for the next book because of the secrecy behind it!!  What trick is Red hiding up her sleeves.  Just like Brie it seems patience is something I need to work on!!

#NewRelease #BDSM – The Russian Reborn (Rise of the Dominants #3) by Red Phoenix

The Russian Reborn (Rise of the Dominants Book 3)

Rytsar Durov is a passionate man…

Seducing women – he’s a natural. Pleasing women – his talents speak for themselves.

A sadist known for his skill with the cat o’ nines, Rytsar enjoys his popularity with submissives at the dungeon, and is caught off guard by the fire-hot attraction he feels for Samantha, a young Domme.

He knows better than to test those waters, but damn…he just can’t resist her.

When two sexy Dominants collide in the bedroom, passions ignite!
But will Rytsar’s heart survive the inferno it creates?


Goodreads


I received this book from the author.

This was another great look at the dominates when they were college kids way before Brie entered the lives of the men.  I was glad but shocked when we finally got to see the “night” between Samantha and Rytsar played out.  Being a fan of the series, we have heard bits and pieces but to SEE what happened and FEEL Rytsar’s shock and shame was hard to take.  Seeing our strong Russian so broken and in such a dark place, made my heart hurt for him.  I will admit, I feel bad and do understand Samantha’s needs to please him is what caused this entire scene in the first place.

I LOVED seeing Thane, Brad, and Rytsar being fun loving college guys struggling with their family and their lives.  But seeing those bonds form that will last a lifetime is amazing as well.  Seeing the loyalty these men have for one another…..priceless…..I was cheering a bit when Tono popped into the story too!!  Who doesn’t love him????

There is so much in this story that any fan will be devouring the book to learn about our broken and strong Russian who steals everyone’s heart.  Now if he could only have an HEA in the future, I will be a happy reader!!
