#WOTR24 #Audiobook #SeriesStarter – Ryker, San Francisco Shockwave Book 1 by Samantha Lind, Narration by James Cavenaugh and Aria Holland

After years of trying to get back home to be closer to my daughter, I finally secured a spot on the newly expanded San Francisco Shockwaves.

Juggling being the newly appointed Captain of the team and taking on full-time fatherhood to a teenager sends my life into chaos.

I quickly find myself needing someone who can pick up the pieces and keep my life in order as I certainly can’t do it alone.

I just never thought my savior would be the sexy woman next door- the one I can’t keep my mind or eyes off every chance I get.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audiobook.

I want to start by saying that the narration was great.  I enjoyed both James and Aria’s Voiced during the story.  They both did a great job voicing the characters for the story.

I am a huge fan of Samantha’s stories.  She does a great job writing characters that are relatable to me.  This story is another one that I enjoyed as well.

Ryker and his daughter are looking for a place after she decided to live with him when he meets his super kind neighbor Avery.  Avery is excited to meet the new neighbor and shocked at how sexy he is.

Fast forward to Ryker and Avery spending time together regarding his daughter and Avery helping him with her.  I enjoyed Rykers daughter Ellie trying to push her dad and Avery together. She seemed a little more mature than a 15-year-old but still I loved her persistence.

Avery and Ryker have normal relationship issues and thankfully there wasn’t any OWD because I can’t stand that.  LOL  I loved the story and how Avery and Ryker were so supportive of each other.  They are what an older couple in life would be concerned with….finances, kids, and time.

I enjoyed the start of the series and look forward to another story from the characters and the new players from the expansion team.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Scoring the Player (Indianapolis Eagles 2) by Samantha Lind

Cocky, man whore, player…. Those are all ways I have been described by the media and countless women. Are they accurate? Possibly. But, that’s all I let the media see of me, Brian Kelly, defensive player for the Indianapolis Eagles Hockey team. I have no intentions of settling down and changing the media’s perception of me. I can’t tell if women are after me for my bank account, the status symbol of being with a professional athlete, or if they really want me for me. Then I meet her. The one woman who doesn’t let my charm affect her or cause her to jump directly into my bed. Can I possibly change my ways and settle down?

Grounded, selfless, giving…Those are all the ways my family and friends have described me. Are they right? Possibly. But, I’m so much more, and need some passion and excitement in my life. My best friend is moving on and I want that someone special to share all that life has to offer. Let it be known that I, Kinley Williams, want the right someone special. So why did he have to crash into me? The one man who is so clearly wrong for me. Then again, he doesn’t seem like anything the tabloids claim him to be. So is he really all that wrong?

#WOTR23 #Audio #Doctor #reread – Cocky Doctor by Samantha Lind

Cocky Doc: A Hero Club Novel by [Samantha  Lind , Hero  Club ]

I was minding my own business at my new job as a child life specialist when the sexiest doctor in the hospital fell into my lap… literally.

He was every woman’s fantasy, the Adonis in a white coat was charming, not to mention brilliant.

Dr. Andrew “Drew” Montgomery was quite the catch, not the usual type of guy who I’d expect to fall for a woman like me.

The first man who saw past my wheelchair, Drew was also the first man I could see myself settling down with.

We started dating, and everything seemed fine, but something was holding him back, Drew was married to his job and he carried the weight of his namesake. A name I wasn’t sure I could live up to.

I meant to keep my guard up, but it was no use. I was in over my head the moment his gorgeous blue eyes thoroughly examined me.

I knew my body was in good hands, but could I trust my heart with the cocky doctor?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this ebook and audio since the audio was on sale at the time.

I will say I LOVED Jacob’s narration for the story.  His voice for Drew and Megan were great.  He also did a killer voice for Drew’s best friend.  Lucy’s narration for Megan and Drew were ok.  It was a little too breathy at times and seemed to not flow as easy as Jacob did.  But it didn’t stop with my enjoyment of the story.

Drew is a total playboy.  He loves his job and loves to hit it and quit it with the ladies.  He isn’t looking for anything serious because he doesn’t think he has anything to give anyone. When he literally crashes into the new Child Life Specialist at the hospital, he soon realizes the best things can come in wheelchairs.

Megan is so excited to finally have her dream job.  Being wheelchair ridden she knows what it’s like being stuck in the hospital as a kiddo and wants to help others.  When she gets to work on her first day, she meets Lucy who soon becomes her best friend and job mentor.  When the hot doctor lands in her lap, she is stunned how polite and kind he is.  The two soon become friends and when they find themselves as dates for a hospital gala, the couple soon see each other in a different light.

The story is a great show of how when you find the right person everything in your life soon clicks and fits right!!  Megan is the best support system for Drew.  Drew is the best man for Megan in that he shows her everything she never thought would be possible.  I loved this story.  I loved how the couple are so perfect for each other.  They are the ying to the others yang.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the audio book of this novel.

I love reading or listening to a “new to me” author. When I saw this author will be attending my favorite author event and she wrote about sports characters, I had to grab a book.

This is a great 2nd chance love story. Who doesn’t love a 2nd chance story???? I am a sucker for it for sure.

Becca and Scott were love at first sight kinda kids. But as life threw curves balls and Becca’s insecurity got the best of he,r she leaves the love of her life. Now 8 years later Becca realizes she is missing the man of her dreams. She decides to not avoid seeing Scott when he visits this summer. She is prayig he too will want to try and rekindle things.

Scott has it all. He has homes, money, and is important on his hockey team rocking the captain title. The one thing he doesn’t have is Becca. She is the one who got away. He is determined to get her back and make her see she is the right woman for him, and he is the right man for her.

The story is a sweet but sexy story of the two reconnecting and figuring out if they are the one for the other. I loved seeing Becca and Scott opening their eyes and making room in their heart for the other. I also love the side story of Becca and Scott’s best friends who too have seem to have found a love connection whether they want to admit it or not.

The story has some insta-love elements but since these two date for high school and college it is easy to see them slip back into their relationship routines. One of my favorite things about the characters are their abilities to want to best for the other half. Scott is out to show Becca how important she is and Becca is all about supporting Scott in his time of trial during his hockey season. They both really do compliment the other and their history is shown really well.

The audio voices in the book were amazing. I loved listening to the differing voices for Scott and Becca. I hope when the rest of the books are done, they continue with the two people because they did a great job bringing the characters to life for me.

#wotr #attendingauthor #standalone Until You (Happily Ever Alpha World) by Samantha Lind

Cameron Burgress was ready for a new start.

New city, new job, and maybe one day, a new love. She just didn’t realize how quickly that could all happen until she walked into a tattoo shop, finally ready to get the ink she’d wanted since her fiancé died, nearly four years ago.

Ethan O’Neill had everything. Until one day, he didn’t.

After an off-ice injury stripped him of his hockey career, he started over in life, pursuing his other passion—tattoos. He’d never been the kind of guy to want to settle down, but that all changed one day, when a knock-out beauty strolled into his shop and into his life.

An instant attraction and a little bit of ink is the perfect mix for two people ready for change.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #SeriesStarter Marry Me (Lyrics and Love) Book #1 by Samantha Lind


What do you do when you receive a wedding invitation from the one girl you always thought you would marry?

Sam- Lauren and her twin brother were my best friends growing up. She captured my heart from the moment I first saw her dancing through the sprinkler. I always kept my feelings hidden though, standing back as she dated other guys, afraid to cross that line and risk losing her. I even went out with a few girls myself, but no one ever measured up.

Then that dreaded day arrived, and I knew I’d lost her forever.

Lauren- Sam was always my constant. My rock. My best friend. That feeling, the one I only got around him, had never been matched by another man. But Sam never showed me he felt anything more for me than friendship, so I moved on…

Now, standing at the end of the aisle, ready to walk to my forever, my mind spins with what-ifs. Do I keep moving forward, knowing a man who loves me is at the end? Or do I risk it all, for the one man I’ve always wanted, and hope he wants me in return.

#wotr #attendingauthor #seriesstarter The Perfect Pitch (Indianapolis Lighting 1) by Samantha Lind

Derek

The sound of the gavel crashing down,

Has my life flashing before my eyes.

Learning to play ball.

Falling in love,

Marrying an incredible woman and starting a family

Becoming a starting pitcher for the Indianapolis Lightning.

Everything I ever wanted… Until I struck out.

The same success that gave me the life I dreamed of,

Took it all away.

I’d do anything for a second chance,

Even throw the perfect pitch.

Jillian

A signature on a piece of paper…

It binds you to someone, or it can tear them away.

It broke my heart to file the papers.

Gutted me to sign them.

But this isn’t the life I envisioned.

Tired of competing to be his number one priority,

I had to walk away from the man I loved.

I needed to be strong for our girls, for me.

Life goes on.

People can change.

Now he wants a second chance.

But can I forgive the man who threw it all away, and trust that he won’t do it again?

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion 

Derek just heard worst thing he’s ever heard in his life the judges gavel stating that his marriage is officially over. His wife Jillian filed for divorce because she was fed up with his parting and acting like he was single when she was home all the time raising their girls when he was on the road playing baseball. With the marriage final that gave Derek the biggest wake up call he ever had, it was time to get his shit together and get his family back at any cost. Jillian was heartbroken and hurt that she no had to send her kids overnight to their dad’s, she never wanted to file for divorce but he I didn’t have a choice. Will Derek get his head outta his ass and be able to win his wife and her heart back or did his one shot get thrown away with his past. Wow this was such a good story and of course throwing kids into the story line makes it better.

 Release Date: January 6

It all started with just a kiss.

The first was ten years ago in high school.

Our second was in a bar on the dance floor.

We agreed to keep things casual.

But we were like a fire burning behind closed doors.

Those sparks had me wanting more.

When I took a shot in the dark and asked for more, it brought us to the ultimate crossroads.

Do we do things right, with just a kiss goodbye?

Or do we do things right, with a kiss goodnight?

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Ahh im so glad Lee and Allison’s story was continued i loved their connection in rumors goin round. Allison and Lee went to high school together and always had that crush on each other but never took it anywhere. One-night at the local bar they decided why not and give into their feelings but Lee was a one night stand kinda guy didnt want to catch feelings and Allison was just fine with that until she starts actually catching feelings in their friends with benefits situation. Will she be able to keep her feelings to herself without her heart getting hurt or is this bachelor one that never gets off the market.

#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.
