Here is my top 5 in no order

Beastly Tales Trilogy by MJ Haag

From Book 1: ** Adult Romance **
Benella is concerned with two things–avoiding the two village boys who torment her and scrounging for food to help feed her family. Unfortunately, the best wild fruit and vegetables are near the walls of the estate, a dark misty place inhabited by an unforgiving beast.

When her tormentors lock her behind the massive gates, Benella knows her fate is sealed. Yet, the fate isn’t one she expects. Her encounter with the beast starts a bizarre cycle of bargaining for her freedom, a freedom the beast seems determined to see her lose.

A classic fairy tale with a seductively dark new twist, the Beauty and the Beast saga begins with Depravity.

Intended for mature readers due to sexual situations and moderate language. This book is part 1 of 3.

The completed Beastly Tales
Depravity, Part 1
Deceit, Part 2
Devastation, Part 3

My favorite is book 2 so here is the review –HERE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Beekeeping Age by Sophie Stern

He’s older. Wiser. Hotter.
More mature.
And he’s my best friend’s dad.

Remington West is the kind of guy who can get me into a lot of trouble. He’s twenty years older than me, for one thing. He’s Anna’s dad, for another.
Still, there’s an electric energy between us that I just can’t push away.
My body doesn’t seem to care that he’s all wrong for me.
It only seems to care that he’s of beekeeping age, and I…
Well, I’m ready to be kept.

Beekeeping Age is a standalone age-gap contemporary romance.

Get her into my space, and prove to her that despite the past, I’ve always been hers. But when disturbing news about her parents surfaces, and four years of buried tension comes out, the plan takes an unexpected turn. There are three sides to every story. Yours. Theirs. And the truth.Book 2 of the Timber Creek Series. Series will contain interconnected standalones.

Perfect Risk by CA Harms

Perfect Risk (Book #1 in a 12 Book Series)

Mason Creek, Montana is my home. It always has been and truth is, there is no place like it.

I can hide away in a big city, pretend as if I’m not drowning. I can ignore the sadness inside my heart that is begging for a change. But if I’m being honest, my sense of belonging has disappeared. I thought I wanted the big city life, the fast track and all the glamorous things. Turns out, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than home.

Coming back to help run my mom’s business gave me the perfect escape.

But there is one problem.

An unresolved past has a way of haunting anyone. Things can sure get complicated when the man that broke your heart all those years ago is now your new landlord.

It may get a little messy, I may regret my decision to stay…
But then again, this might just be the Perfect Risk.

Worth the Fall by Bria Quinlan

Who could possibly lose her job, apartment, and boyfriend in one day?

This girl.

I won’t lie. When my boyfriend took me out for a fancy-shmancy dinner, I was thinking jewelry not “please return your security deposit” the weekend I was moving in. Which, can we just talk about the fact I was going to move in with a long-term boyfriend who wanted a security deposit?

Instead, I got a lecture about not being able to pull my weight and a breakup. In public.

I’m over it. I’m over the good-paying job that kept me trapped in the wrong spot, the fear of moving on…and men. New rule: World Domination Without Men.

Period.

There’s only one thing slowing me down. That cop.

Yeah. Okay, so I may have accidentally broken some laws this weekend. Nothing big. But that hot cop has shown up everywhere. Now he’s living across the street from my new place and doing super hot cop things like cooking and salsa dancing.

I can’t help but wonder: Can I do the Single Girl Takes on the World thing and let Mr. Hottie Officer in or do I need to put him in the slammer of my big picture plan?

Now I just need to decide: Take over the world solo or risk another heartbreak with Officer Hottie?

#WOTR24 #attendingauthor #Authorspotlight – S.J. Chaynie

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is S.J. Chaynie, I was born and raised in a tiny town in Texas. I have been married for fourteen years and have two beautiful daughters. I recently found I enjoy writing just as much as reading, so I decided to give it a go and it turns out it’s just the escape I need to keep me from losing my sanity. I cannot live a day without sweet tea and my favorite show of all time is the Golden Girls. I’m also a true crime girl. My husband is currently building our dream home so for the last year I have been writing my books on the fly or in my “office” which consists of two TV trays shoved together to hold my computer. Life is busy and unpredictable, but I love every second with my family that supports my “dirty” books and the friends I have made in the book community. It really is the best!

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

I would say the others after because remembering what I already wrote sometimes throws me for a loop! Ha!

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I try to write tropes that people want to read and I want to challenge myself to try things out that I’ve never written.

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Write when you feel like it. Don’t force it. Sometimes the words just aren’t there. Sometimes you have to take a step back and work on another project, or do some reading. The inspiration will come and that’s when you roll with it.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

It depends. Some days I don’t write at all and other days I may spend an hour or two. Whatever fits my schedule that day. I have a full time job and I’m a mom soooooo…. you get it!

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

My favorite character I have written is Easton Roy. He’s the main male character in my most recent release. Most of my books have the element of “staying away” as where Easton’s character is the opposite. He’s actively trying to win the Elle’s heart. Plus he’s a girl dad and he’s just swooonnny. He’s just a genuine character that you can’t help but love.  **Twinsie Angie also is in love with Easton Roy for that book**

What is your definition of success?

In the book world, I would say success is making a connection to people. Knowing that something you created reached the heart of someone else.

Do you have anything you want to share that didn’t fit on one of these questions?

It makes me SO happy when a reader lets me know they enjoyed my book.

#WOTR24 #MC #oppositesattract – Pardon, Knights of Paradise MC Book 3 by S.J. Chaynie

Pardon: Knights of Paradise MC by [S.J. Chaynie ]

I know the risks of being undercover in an Outlaw Motorcycle Club. I know that being a woman means I have to work twice as hard. I expected violence. I expected drugs. What I didn’t expect was him. The man is a mystery. Gorgeous, perceptive, and alluring. I’m here for one reason, and one reason only. To take them down. But why is the solid line between right and wrong starting to blur? I prepared for this. Trained my mind, my body, and perfected my story. But the one thing I didn’t prepare was my heart, and it’s leading me into a dangerous direction. Directly to the enforcer.
This is an adult novel intended for mature readers. Book 3 of the Knights of Paradise MC Series. The final book.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book for an honest review.

I am such a fan of this series.  I loved the love story of the first two books.  I would recommend reading the first two due to the mega twists the author threw in.  I would say this is not really a standalone.  You could read it but the over arching ARC of the backstory might leave you confused.  Just trust me, read the books.  They are so good!! Mav and Tanner but Dom and Dani!!!  I am not sure which I love more before Widow and Lexi.

In book 2, Dani finds out that one of the original founding members isn’t as dead as they all assumed.  It was up to club enforcer Widow to find things out.  He also is dealing with the fact Viper escaped them in the last book. Viper better keep hiding out because he has some revenge coming his way.

Lexi is an FBI Agent.  She is looking to take down the bad guys.  She lost her sister to drugs and wants to clean up the streets and anyone who s dealing.  Her slimy boss sends her undercover to watch the Knights MC. Her first day she sees Widow and he sees her.  The chemistry is crazy from jump!!

Widow is a hook up kinda guy.  He keeps his bed business quiet.  He really only has one friend with benefits, but Lexi makes him feel and want more.  Lexi and Widow dance around each other at the club until….wellllll Lexi hears something she should not have seen.

The chemistry of Lexi and Widow at that point becomes even crazier!!  WOOF.  He takes her because he needs to know if she is an enemy or a friend to the club. The more time they spend together the blurrier the lines come, especially for Lexi being an undercover agent.

The story is amazing.  The club and the mystery of who was backstabbing them, Lexi as an FBI agent, and the dead but not dead member of the club. The epilogue made my heart so happy because I cant wait to see what happens to all the kids.

S.J. Chaynie is a small-town Texas girl who has found a love for writing. She enjoys writing romance, with a sprinkle of suspense, and a little humor. If she is not busy writing her newest ideas, she is spending time with her husband and two beautiful daughters. She believes a good book and a lot of laughs is the best medicine. She brings suspense, love, angst, and sometimes the occasional heartbreak to her stories. Always a HEA, but every character and story she holds close to her heart and hopes they touch yours as well.

#WOTR24 #SiblingsBestFriend #MC – Sanction, Knights of Paradise MC Book 2 by S.J. Chaynie

Sanction : Knights of Paradise MC by [S.J. CHAYNIE]

There is nothing I won’t do for my family. The family that took me in, gave me a home, a job, and a brotherhood that I didn’t know I needed. But something was taken from me. Something I have spent years telling myself I didn’t deserve. I’ve spent years breaking her heart, one piece at a time. My loyalty has been to her brother, and her father’s memory. Two men who I could never betray. But things change. She’s in trouble, and even though no one has ever known, she’s always been mine. And now, I’m coming for her.

This is an adult novel intended for mature readers.
Book 2 of the Knights of Paradise MC Series. Does end on a clifhanger, part of a continuing series.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

LAWD have I been excited for this book!!!  The end of book 1 is a cliffhanger so if you haven’t read Mav and Tanner you gotta STOP and read book 1 first.

Princess AKA Dani and Dom AKA Travis are so frustrating and so yummy at the same damn time.  I mean yes I get Travis pushing her away since he was raised by Mav and Dani’s family but….DAYUM the chemistry between the two of them is offfff the charts!!!

Like I said this book is picking up at Tanner and Mav’s Party.  Dani feels like crap and Tanner takes her to the store when they are abducted by the Serpents…grrrrr.  Tanner and Dani are freaking out wondering when then MC will come and get them.  Travis realizes he is done hiding his love for Dani.  He needs to get her back and tell her how much he loves her.

The time hope backwards to see how their love came to be was so innocent initially and then not so innocent!!  LOL  I absolutely love seeing the roles being reversed and Mav giving Travis the same shit after admitting his love for Dani.

I am so excited for the next book.  I can’t wait for Widow and Lexi.  I am guessing that is where this is headed????  Maybe??  But the last line of the book from Dani about a person from the past left me GASPING!!!  For real I love this series!!!

S.J. Chaynie is a small town Texas girl who has found writing to be what helps soothes her soul. She enjoys writing stories full of love, angst, suspense and always a little humor. Life lessons and heartbreak are thrown in the mix, but she will always give you a HEA. If she’s not spending time with her husband and two beautiful daughters, she is reading a spicy romance novel or brainstorming wild ideas for her next book while sipping on some sweet tea. She hopes you love her characters and their stories as much as she does and it brings you all the feels!

#WOTR24 #BestFriendSister #AgeGap #MC – Concede, Knights of Paradise MC book 1 by S.J. Chaynie

Concede: Knights of Paradise MC by [S.J.  Chaynie ]

I’ve spent the last four years in a Catholic boarding school. A very different world from the one I have found myself being forced into. There is a dangerous game being played, and I haven no choice but to be under his protection. He’s the king, and expects me to bow just like all the others. The more he demands, the more I resist. He’s not just too old for me, or just the president of a motorcycle club. He’s my brother’s best friend, and if he wants me as his queen, he better prove he’s worthy enough for me to put on the crown.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

First up, I saw a booktok trailer and was like “HEEEEY GIRL” to the authors.  I essentially asked nicely…cough cough begged…..for an ARC of this book.  MC is my JAM and it sounded like something I would love.  It hits all my favs…Best friend’s sibling/age gap/MC.  I was super thrilled when she said YES.  I got the book and downloaded thinking I would get a chapter or two in before I put it down to do housework.  PFT Housework be damned.  Maverick and Tanner had my FULL attention, but I was side eyeing Dom and Dani.  Don’t worry I got questions you two!!

Now I know people are haters for cliffhangers, but I love them.  I really do.  So, I will warn you this is a cliffy but it’s a good one.  Does that make sense?  Prolly not for you cliffy haters.  But for real, I loved it and where it dropped at is a good ending/beginning for the next story.

Ok so Maverick/Zeke and Tanner/Vix.  This book runs you through the gamete.  Tanner starts to story as a wide-eyed boarding school virgin with no idea who her brother is and especially what a MC Club is.  When the story cliffies, we see a strong woman who know what she wants and who she wants.  My favorite scene of the book is when she has had it with Maverick’s shit.  For Real!!  Our girl is over it and she tells him what is up.  It is up to him to make the changes because she is DONZO.  But my next favorite scene is when they are bed shopping for his room…Maverick is a dirty dirty boy!!!  He plays soooo dirty to get what he wants, and that is Tanner!

Maverick is the MC president, and he loves the lifestyle.  He doesn’t think he should settle down and honestly doesn’t really have any intensions.  However, Tanner makes him want more and importantly makes him FEEL more.  The feelings she causes in him are powerful and super confusing to the manwhore.

Now Dom is Tanners brother who is all “Hand off” buuuuut dude uhm you don’t seem to be keeping your hands off Mavericks little sister, Dani.  Pot Meet Kettle!!  I can’t wait to see what happens in book 2.  I think Mr. Dom is getting the much-needed eye opener he needs to claim what his heart desires most!

S.J. Chaynie is a new author who had a wild idea while sitting in the ocean under the Texas sky. She decided to write a book. She loves all things mystery, suspense, love, and betrayal, all mixed in with sarcasm and humor. Her first published book is Falcon Point: Deception, which is the first book in the Falcon Point Series. She hopes to bring all the feels through her stories to all those mystery/romance loving hearts!

#WOTR24 #SeriesStarter #AgeGap #GrumpySunshine – Whispers of Timber Creek, Timber Creek Series book 1 by S.J. Chaynie

Being relocated to a small-town PD in Colorado was the last thing I needed. Being assigned to babysit the captain’s daughter didn’t help either. She’s quirky, young, and unfortunately, the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Cap only has one rule. Keep my hands to myself. Turns out to be harder than it looks. Now I live in her house, and at night I hear her cries. She’s haunted by her dreams just like I’m haunted by my past. She may be crazy, or she may be the only key to unlocking the dark secrets of this town. The clock is ticking, and the closer we get, the more dangerous it becomes. We both heard the captain’s warning loud and clear……too bad neither of us listened.

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

I met this author after I saw a TikTok of hers about a different series.  I am so thankful she has allowed me to read that series and is giving me her new series to read as well.

This is a great series starter with some amazing characters we meet.  I admit as much as I LOVED the main H/h in this book, book 2’s couple has me clawing to read their story.  I mean I messaged the author to say NOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW.  She even agreed with me about their story being a great read to come.

Ok so this series starts with Jace in the shrink’s office not wanting to admit how he is feeling about the death of his partner and best friend.  He is reassigned to a small town for 3 months to get his stuff together essentially.  He goes to the town and immediately sees Camille.  He gets the official “Hands off” by her dad…ya know…his new boss the Captain of the force.  Unfortunately, circumstances will force them to be thrown together 24/7 which makes hands off near impossible.

Camille is having a hard time.  She knows what people think of her and she is a broken women thanks to her ex-boyfriend, Stuart.  She is attracted to the new detective until he talks.  Then his mouth makes her remember what a jerk he is.  LOL

This story has a LOT of chemistry. The slow burn of Jace and Camille is HAWT.  LAWD, when they finally crash and combust, loooook out!!!

The side story of the missing girls is a low theme in the story until its not.  Then we are running to figure out who, what, and why of what is happening.  I admit I was so wrapped up in the Jace and Cami when I realized what was happening, I was like RUN FASTER!!! Get going!!!!!

But Easton and Ellie….I cannot wait!!

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

EASTON!!!  GAH!! I don’t know how many times I was messaging the author is regards to my boyfriend.  I am not a person who highlights stuff but there were so many amazing lines from him to Elle…..I melted so many times.  Like I love him so freaking much!!

Ok so you get that I loved the book right???  Now this is the 2nd book in the series but trust me what I say you don’t need to read book 1 to get this book.  I will say you totally need to read it because we see the Easton/Elle dance and well it made me totally love him before I read this book.

Easton is one of the town police officers who has loved Elle his entire life.  He can’t imagine not having her around and right when he gets the nerve to tell her…he makes an epic mistake and ruins it all. Elle has had a crap life.  She finally gets things in order and opens up to Easton and then…..GROWL

I loved Easton and Elle.  The dance they do the whole book is amazing.  They both want the other, but Elle is being stubborn annnd yes she has the right to be but…gesh Elle!!!  Easton knows he messed up and will do anything to get his girl to admit she wants to be with him too.

The banter and chemistry is so good. His zingers to get her attention made me laugh so many times. But guys…..omg the charity auction…..lets just say I saw Easton in a whole new light!!  MMMMMMM  Yes I liked it too.

This book has me glued to it and I was not happy when I had to put it down. I read it so fast I feel like I need to reread it to enjoy it all over again!!!

Review by: Twinsie Melinda

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

First off this is a new to me author and I can absolutely tell you I will be reading more of her books.  I could not put this one down.  It had me turning the pages like crazy I did not want to set this one down.  There was so many twist that I didn’t see coming.

Elle and Easton were childhood friends but as they grew Elle felt something more for Easton. When things were headed towards something more than just friends the rug was pulled out from beneath Elle. Just like any other time in her life when things were going well something happened that turned her world upside down. Four years later and Easton was determined to make Elle his. When the stars started to line up for him, he jumped at the chance to try to make her his.

I loved Elle and Easton the chemistry between them was thick. To watch them was like spinning magnets on a table repelling when they don’t line up but when they connect OH BOY do these two connect.  Let me just say charity auction. I enjoyed the side characters also and I like getting to know them a bit.  I need to go back and read the first book and I am on pins and needles waiting for the next book.

Ok so Maverick/Zeke and Tanner/Vix.  This book runs you through the gamete.  Tanner starts to story as a wide-eyed boarding school virgin with no idea who her brother is and especially what a MC Club is.  When the story cliffies, we see a strong woman who know what she wants and who she wants.  My favorite scene of the book is when she has had it with Maverick’s shit.  For Real!!  Our girl is over it and she tells him what is up.  It is up to him to make the changes because she is DONZO.  But my next favorite scene is when they are bed shopping for his room…Maverick is a dirty dirty boy!!!  He plays soooo dirty to get what he wants, and that is Tanner!

Maverick is the MC president, and he loves the lifestyle.  He doesn’t think he should settle down and honestly doesn’t really have any intensions.  However, Tanner makes him want more and importantly makes him FEEL more.  The feelings she causes in him are powerful and super confusing to the manwhore.

Now Dom is Tanners brother who is all “Hand off” buuuuut dude uhm you don’t seem to be keeping your hands off Mavericks little sister, Dani.  Pot Meet Kettle!!  I can’t wait to see what happens in book 2.  I think Mr. Dom is getting the much-needed eye opener he needs to claim what his heart desires most!
