Stirred; Twisted Fox #1 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Charity Ferrell

Review Rating:



Charity Ferrell stirs up all the feels in this amazing new book! Right out of the gate with the new Twisted Fox series we get humor, tears, angsty feels and forbidden love. Ferrell never disappoints which is why she’s a one chick author for me.

Stirred introduces us to a new cast of characters, just about twenty miles down the road from Blue Beech, so if you’ve read Charity’s previous books you might recognize some of your favorite characters popping in, but know that Twisted Fox is a new world with lots of people to meet and fall in love with.

In Stirred we meet Jamie, Cohen, and Cohen’s son Noah, they are a package deal and I dare you not to fall in love with the adorableness that is wrapped up in the five year old little boy. Strangely enough, Noah also happens to be Jamie’s nephew and here is where we get into the forbiddenness of Cohen and Jamie’s romance.

Cohen dated Jamie’s sister, Heather, all the way through school, but right after birth, she wanted nothing to do with her son and gave up all rights to Noah. With his son now as his singular focus, Cohan cuts all ties to Heather and her family, which included Jamie. He doesn’t have time to worry about anything else, especially an ex who doesn’t want anything to do with the person who means the world to him.

Jamie hasn’t seen Cohen or Noah for five years, that is until they end up in her ER department. Shocked is an understatement when she first sees them, but wanting to reconnect with her nephew is paramount and the crush she used to have on Cohen hasn’t diminished in the least, but she’ll take knowing Noah above all else.

As much as Cohan wants to continue to keep Jamie out of their lives, he eventually concedes and Noah instantly takes to her. As much as he tries to stay away and give Jamie time with his son, he eventually is drawn to Jamie too, and Cohen can’t help his growing attraction, but they both realize crossing lines could be detrimental if things go bad. It wouldn’t be just their hearts on the line, but Noah’s too and breaking his heart may be a line they aren’t willing to cross.

This is such an amazing start to a new series that will really touch you and pull at all your heartstrings.


I don’t want him.
I can’t do this.
That’s what my ex said after our son was born, leaving me a single dad.

These days, my world consists of two things: Noah and my bar.
Until her—the woman I want —but can never have.
My ex’s sister wasn’t supposed to be stirred into the mix.

Even though I try to push her away, my son falls in love with her.
As much as I want to keep my distance, I can’t break his heart.

Lines become blurred, and fighting our attraction becomes nearly impossible.
Even though we know it’s wrong, desire doesn’t always fade away.
As soon as we cross that line, nothing will be the same and everything will fall apart.
And it does.

New Release – Thunderstruck by Anna Hague

Title: Thunderstruck
Series: Storm Canyon #1
Author: Anna Hague
Genre: Paranormal Shifter Romance
Release Date: May 12, 2020

Granted, Evangeline Webber was intoxicated when she saw the Ghost Horse at Silver Spear Ranch, but the next time she saw the magnificent animal shimmering in the moonlight, she was stone cold sober. The horse haunts her dreams, and so does Rick Cambios-Plata. The aloof cowboy is a calming presence to the abused horses he rescues, but Evangeline is anything but when he’s in the area. This trip was supposed to be her sanctuary to help her get over the guilt of the death of her soon-to-be ex-husband, however, both Rick and the ghost horse keep invading her space. She has a feeling he’s hiding something, and her body wants to know what.

Maverick Cambios-Plata stays away from the ranch guests, but when Evangeline arrived, his senses were on alert. He had to know why this woman was here invading his every thought. His priorities and commitments were to preserve a legacy only a few knew of, and Evangeline was a distraction and had nothing to do with the lives he protected.

Or did she?

Evangeline and Maverick each hold secrets, and one of them has no idea how much the truth will change everything.

Evangeline blinked several times to clear the blurriness from her eyes. The full moon cast a luminous radiance over the ranch even beyond the corrals—and the silver streak resembling a horse that raced across the grassy plain, bucking every few paces and whinnying at the obsidian night. She glanced at the half empty bottle of bourbon she clutched and back to the thundering steed glowing in the night.
“Oh hell, no.” She’d been at the ranch for over three weeks and knew every horse in residence but had yet to see any running wild as spectacular as this one. The wild horses in the area were located at a sanctuary over an hour away in Hot Springs not in this part of the Black Hills.
“Damn, Jackson.” She and the owner of the local gas station, deli, laundry, and liquor store had been on a first-name basis since she perused the alcohol department as regularly as she could get to town. “What the hell did you sell me?” The bourbon didn’t look or smell any different than anything else she’d purchased, but Jackson had suggested the Black Hills Recipe would be unlike any other bourbon she’d tried. Was it filtered through peyote or something? No, peyote wasn’t native to South Dakota, but who really knew what went into locally distilled spirits?
Evangeline’s heart stuttered at the masculine voice. “Keller, you startled me. What are doing out here in the dark?”
The cowboy whisked his hat from his head and raked his fingers through his dark blond hair. “I was just checkin’ on the horses before I turned in. Up kind of late, aren’t you?”
She swung her legs from the arm of the wooden rocker on the porch of her cabin. “I suppose. I don’t have to get up early like you do, though.”
“Still trying to find yourself out here?”
“Something like that.”
Keller cocked his head to the bottle tucked in her fingers. “Was that full when you started the evening?”
She swirled the amber liquor. “Maybe.”
“You be careful with any shit Jackson recommends.” He stuffed his hat on head and tipped the brim to her. “Ma’am. Enjoy what’s left of the evening while you can still remember.”
He stepped away toward the bunkhouse. “Keller?”
“Yes, Ma’am?”
“Well, for one, would you stop calling me ma’am?”
He snickered. “Sorry, habit.”
“Good manners.” She set the bottle on the porch and rested her elbows on her knees. “Did you see a silver horse running across the meadow?”
“Like a few minutes ago.”
“No, Ma…Miss Webber. I didn’t.”
“Evangeline. How about calling me Evangeline. I think I’ve been here long enough for that. Anyway, are you sure? It was bucking and whinnying and flying across the grass.”
“I was in a barn full of horses. I hear lots of whinnying. Didn’t see it, sorry.”
Slumping back in the rocker, she sighed. Maybe she was hallucinating. The clearness she was seeking hadn’t exactly presented itself since her arrival. The lure of the mountains and fresh air had brought her here. She needed a change, at least for a little while. The day to day survival wasn’t working. She needed to snap out of her funk. It’d been two years. She needed to move on. That’s what her friends and family said. She didn’t see any of them having to handle what she did. Live with what she did.
“Well, must be the bourbon. Goodnight, Keller. I think I should hit the sack, too.”

New Release – Atonement by L.K. Shaw

Title: Atonement
Series: Love Undercover #3
Author: L.K. Shaw
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 12, 2020

I’ve worked hard to rebuild the life I nearly destroyed.
I don’t think I could ever atone for all my sins, but Landon might be my salvation.
If we can survive a brewing drug war.

The private investigation firm I’ve started with my brother could be my shot at redemption. Our first case: find the supplier of Rapture, a new, lethal drug being sold on the streets. I’m determined to do some good and make up for the sins of my past.

One of those sins just walked through the door, and her name is Landon Roberts. Two years ago, a chance meeting in an empty bar led to the most intense connection of my life. The anguish in her eyes echoed the pain inside me, and for a single night we offered each other comfort. Until the morning when she disappeared without a trace.

Now, she’s the D.E.A. agent tasked with finding and eliminating the source behind Rapture. Which means I plan on spending a lot of time with her, because I have no intention of letting her get away again.

But the powerful man behind the lethal drug won’t let anyone stand in his way of his making money. Can Landon and I survive long enough to find love and atonement?

I reached my car, and the voice that hadn’t left my head for two years, the one I could pick out blindfolded, hit my ears. “Leaving so soon?”
It was far too close for comfort. I froze and quickly tried to make my escape, but the second I tugged on the handle, a strong hand slammed across the top of my car door, halting its movement.
“Move your hand,” I bit out behind clenched teeth.
My gaze locked on the fingers in front of me. They looked exactly the same as they had before. Calloused. Strong. Gentle. A brief flash of them cupping my breast, thumbing my nipple, rushed through my mind. I pushed the images away, needing to get out of here.
Hating him for making me look at him, I raised my eyes to meet hazel ones. It almost hurt to see Preston’s face again. His expression echoed the pain I forced down. He took a tiny step back. Not far enough away, because if I wanted, I could still reach out and touch him.
“Why’d you run?”
I closed my eyes, needing to break this connection. I also needed to block out my emotions. He’d seen too much of them already.
Hoping my mask was back in place, I met his stare again. “I didn’t run. I left. We had a good time, and it was over.”
Preston crossed his arms. “Liar.”
I flinched. Even after two years, he still saw too much.
“You and I both know it was more than just a good time, Landon.”
Hearing that name from his lips hardened my emotions. He met Sara that night. I needed to put a stop to this. Pushing back my shoulders, I straightened to my full height. “We fucked. That was it. Nothing more, nothing less.”
“Does Brody know?”
I reared back. “God, no. I didn’t even know he was your brother until that day outside the warehouse. He’d told me he had a recovering addict brother, but no fucking way could I have guessed it was you.”
“I’ve never forgotten you,” he said softly.
Pain shot through me. I’d never forgotten him, either, no matter how hard I tried. But he was no good for me. He made me feel things I didn’t deserve to feel.
It was time to end this conversation. I glared hard at him, desperate to show how much I didn’t care. “It was two years ago. You should get over it. I know I have.”

What was she going to do?
Molly caught her knuckle as she twisted the wrench on a nut that just wouldn’t give. She gritted her teeth as the skin scraped away. She sucked on the skin, the iron tang of blood settling on her tongue.
Questions bounced through her mind as a cold wind blew straight down the collar of her jacket.
Once she got the nut loosened, the dead alternator would lift out. Another hour, and she’d have the new one installed in its place.
And then what?
She’d promised Cord she’d get off his property. He’d been kind, letting her stay the past two nights. She’d repaid him by cooking some of Mama’s favorite meals, though she’d left him to eat in peace, staying in her room and strumming her guitar.
She hadn’t slept other than in snatches. She needed to get the fear under control. She couldn’t keep going like this.
She’d seen a random stranger walking down the street and panicked. A full blown attack, with the shakes and trouble breathing. In front of Cord, who obviously pitied her.
Pitied her, but wasn’t going to invite her to stay.
I’ll never let you go.
I’ll kill anybody you get close to.

Toby’s cutting voice had been bouncing through her brain ever since.
You’re mine.
She wasn’t his. Never had been.
But no matter how many times she repeated it to herself, his voice followed her.
She’d found a measure of safety on Cord’s land. It was quiet, peaceful. Maybe she could find someplace like it.
She tried to tell herself she would be fine.
But she didn’t believe it.
Footsteps crunched in the dried grasses, and she startled so badly that she dropped her wrench into the engine with a clang.
She might’ve uttered a cuss word under her breath as she retrieved it.
She shot a glance at Cord, approaching from the house, but he pretended he hadn’t seen her jump like a lunatic.
“Need some help?” He shoved his hands into the pockets of his jeans. His flannel shirt was unbuttoned above a T-shirt that clung to his abs.
“No thanks.” She’d fight with this bolt a little more, and then she’d win. She’d do the next step and the next until the engine was rebuilt.
Too bad she didn’t have a manual for how to rebuild her life.
He shifted his feet. Opened his mouth. Shut it again. Then blurted, “Can you come inside for a minute? I wanna talk.”
“What’s there to talk about? I told you I’m getting ready to leave. You’ll have your solitude back.”
He mumbled something under his breath. When she shot him a look, he awarded her a tight smile. It was some improvement over his fierce frowns. What would it take to drag a real smile from him? “Please, will you come inside?”
The nut finally loosened, the tension giving away under the strain in her arm. “Fine,” she said.
It was the work of a few seconds to remove the nut and bolt, and then she lifted out the alternator and set it on the ground beside the truck. An empty spot was left behind in the truck’s engine.
That’s how she felt right now. There was a huge piece missing inside of her. She didn’t know how to get it back.
She wiped her grease-stained hands on a rag as she followed Cord to the house. In the kitchen, he motioned her to sit in one of the kitchen chairs. She crossed her arms and leaned against the counter instead.
He leveled a look on her. “You okay?”
She dropped her gaze to the floor. “I’m fine.”
She wasn’t fine. But he’d already seen her at her worst, and she didn’t want to face his pity again.
She heard the skepticism in the single word. She turned away and started running water at the sink. She scrubbed her hands with the rough green bar of soap left there. And rinsed.
And then he was close behind her, reaching around her to turn off the water. Her body was betraying her again. It was awareness of him at her shoulder—not fear—that made her heart pound.
That and the sickening memory of Toby.
“I want to know what’s going on,” he said. The words emerged heavy, as if they’d cost him.
She squeezed her eyes closed.
He touched her, cupping one hand beneath her elbow.
And when she looked up at him again, something was burning behind his eyes. “I have to know. Did someone hurt you?”
She clutched the edge of the sink. “He tried.”

In reality, she’s up before the sun, putting words on the page before her kids wake up for the day. Those early-morning and late-night writing sessions add up, and Lacy has published fifty books in almost a decade, first with a big five publisher and then as an indie author. When she needs to refill the well, you can find Lacy birdwatching, gardening, biking with the kiddos, or walking the dog.

“Jesus fucking Christ, Belinda!”
“Are you blind? Or deaf? Or dumb? Or what?”
I just stare at him.
Vann takes a step forward, forcing me to take a step back too. And my step is actually a step up. He points his finger at me. I swat it away.
“I’m gonna say this once, OK? Just once.”
“Say whatever the fuck you want. I don’t care what you do.”
He climbs one step. And so do I. “I like you,” he says, climbing another step. So I climb another step. “I like your filthy mouth, Belinda Baker. I like your stupid cowboy boots. I like your pink hair.” He keeps climbing the steps, so I have to keep climbing the steps. “I like the way you road-trip.”
“What?” I’m so confused.
He’s still climbing the steps and now my back is against my front door. “I like the way you wear that glitter shit on your eyelids in the summer. And the way you wear fingerless gloves in the winter even though you complain, every single day, that your fucking hands are cold. I like the way your hair smells when you show up for work and it’s still wet. I like the way you spin on your stupid stool in front of the shop cash register and glare at the giggly sorority girls like you can’t wait for them to wake up sober tomorrow and realize they just paid a hundred bucks for a My Little Mermaid tramp stamp. I like the way you bite your lip when you’re tattooing and the way you always have a smear of ink on the side of your face by the time you’re done.”
I reach up to touch my face.
“Yes, you have ink there, right now. And I love that. Because you don’t even care enough to check the mirror after you’re done with a client to notice that you always have ink smeared on your fucking face after you tattoo someone. I like the way you kick at stones when you walk down the street like you’re some troubled teen with pregnancy issues.”
“What?” I laugh.
“I like the way you bitch, and moan, and complain that no one takes you seriously. In fact, I love that no one takes you seriously, because then they’d figure out just how awesome you are, and I’m afraid you’ll actually find someone else before I can convince you that I am good for you. I want to date you, Belinda Baker. And you know what really pissed me off tonight?”
He pauses.
I become uneasy. “Am I supposed to guess?”
“I’m not mad that you fucked Tony in the alley. OK? That’s not it. I’m angry that you gave him the chance that I deserve.”
My stomach… falls. I don’t know of any other way to describe the feeling I get when I internalize those last few words of his. Except… falling. Like the world has just been yanked out from under me. Like I’m adrift in a sea of mistakes.
Because he’s absolutely right.
“No,” he says, still seething. “No.” He holds up one finger. “I’m not done. You don’t get to talk yet. I’ve been holding this in all fucking night while you laughed and joked with my goddamned brother and his stupid yoked-out army friend. Who, by the way, was leering at you the entire time.”
“He was not!”
“He so was!”
“He was lying face down, Vann!”
“I just want to say this.” He pauses again and his chest is rising and falling very quickly, like he’s really upset. And his lips are falling into a deep frown. And his face is becoming flushed with heat. “I have earned my chance, Belinda. I didn’t become your friend because I wanted to get in your pants. I didn’t get you the apprentice job because I thought we’d be good together. I didn’t drive you and Tara two thousand miles to Key West because I thought maybe you’d finally see me for what I am. I did all those things because I like you. With no expectations whatsoever. I did all those things because I enjoy you. And when we’re together, life is fun. Even when we’re running from guys called Diablo, and smuggling people on boats, and especially when we’re just hanging out doing nothing. Saying nothing. That’s my favorite time with you. Because we’re at that place now. That place where we’re comfortable. And I keep waiting for you to see how good we are. And you just”—he shakes his head—“refuse! You just refuse to even consider me. But this asshole Tony Dumas shows up out of nowhere and you give him all the considerations. You say you don’t like him—”
“I don’t!”
“You say that, but then why, Belinda? Why do you give him all the chances he hasn’t earned?”

New Release – Embraced in Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

Title: Embraced in Ink
Series: Montgomery Ink: Boulder #3
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 12, 2020

The Montgomery Ink saga continues with an unforgettable romance where two best friends make a bet that could change their lives forever.

Bristol Montgomery and Marcus Stearn have been best friends for so long, they sometimes forget when they weren’t as close as they are now. While friends and family think there’s something beneath the surface of their friendship, the two have always been steadfast in their stance on no heated looks or deeper feelings.

The problem? Years ago, they promised each other that if neither of them was married by the time Bristol turned thirty, they’d marry each other.

Even though both have long since decided never to force the other into an arranged marriage, circumstances and sheer stubbornness force them to refuse to back out of their deal.

Now, they’re determined to get married—even as dangerous exes and feelings they deny, block their path.

New Release – Forking Around by Erin Nicholas

Forking Around - RB banner.jpg

“You can always count on Erin Nicholas for fun, sexy contemporary romance.”

Melissa Foster, New York Times bestselling author

Forking Around, a flirty and sexy romantic comedy standalone from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!

ForkingAround300 (1).jpg

A Cinderella story with a hot boss so charming even a fairy godmother couldn’t do better.

Everyone thinks Dax Marshall is a prince of a guy. And he’s definitely charming.

But Jane has enough going on without adding a torrid fling with the boss to her life. Between her father’s illness, her wicked-ish stepmother, her little sister’s teenage drama, and the co-workers who depend on her—she can’t handle another mess.

No matter how tempting and gorgeous the mess may be. Or how messy he wants to get with her.

Dax has spent his life being very serious about only one thing: proving you can be successful while still having a helluva good time. But he’s just met the one woman who might break his I-can-charm-anyone streak. She’s actually taking him seriously…and she seriously thinks they have nothing in common and can’t be together.

Maybe he’s the one who needs a new view of happily ever after. It’s time to stop forking around.

New Release – A Secret For A Secret by Helena Hunting

ASFAS - RB banner.jpg

“Helena Hunting delivers a smart, funny, emotional story that grabs you from page one.”

— Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal bestselling author

A Secret for a Secret, an all-new must read forbidden standalone romance that is sure to have you swooning from the start by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting, is available now!

Hunting-A Secret for a Secret-28672-PB-FT.jpg

From New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting comes a new romance about trading secrets, breaking the rules, and playing for keeps.

My name is Ryan Kingston, and I’m a rule follower. I’ve never been in a fistfight. I always obey the speed limit. I don’t get drunk, and I definitely don’t pick up random women at bars.

Except the night I found out that my whole existence has been a lie.

I got drunk. And picked up a stranger.

Her name was Queenie, and she was everything I’m not: reckless, impulsive, and chaotic. We did shots and traded secrets. And ended up naked at my place.

She left me a thank-you note in the morning and her panties as a parting gift. But no way to contact her.

Six weeks later I’m sitting in the first official team meeting of the season, and there she is. I neglected to mention that I’m the goalie for Seattle’s NHL team.

And Queenie? Turns out she’s the general manager’s daughter.
