All the Good Little Girls Keep Quiet by K. Kibbee

Releasing September 8th Get it on Amazon - Set in the summer of 79' Olive Abernathy has decided to kick rocks by way of a railcar. All the Good Little Girls Keep Quiet is very much set in the eras common way of thinking when it pertains to girls. Who they should be, how they should act, and most importantly, how they are told to react.  This read in a crazy enigma for me. It's high on emotion, yet the humor woven into the sometimes very harsh content plays into the juxtaposition of laughter and detest. Strong writing with a solid look into youth during a time of change.  ~Tanja Olive Abernathy is a silver-tongued tomboy with a mean right hook, a fierce little spirit, and an inability to fit in. Her uncle mistook the Mayor's toupee for a bigfoot pelt. Her Aunt found the baby Jesus in a bowl of cornflakes. Her Mama’s holding a paddle in one hand and the world’s biggest secret in the other. Olive feels her little Louisian

Second Breath by Danika Bloom

Get it on Amazon Currently free on KU Okay, Book Friends, have I got a fun one for you! From the new-to-me author, Danika Bloom comes Second Breath. The first few chapters are what did it for me as a reader/reviewer. Clever premise. Smart characters. Interesting yet funny banter and a volley of dialogue that just makes you smile. Snag a copy for a fun afternoon read! ~Tanja Dylan Rhodes. Up-and-coming lawyer. Media darling. And an unapologetic player who treats women like tea bags—gets them wet, then tosses them out. Everything about this man warns me not to trust him. Tells me to kick his breath-taking body to the curb. Get him out of my study. But I need the data for my college thesis. And he’s the perfect man to prove that the dating mind-tricks I’m testing, work. At least we’re on the same page about one thing: neither of us is looking for a relationship. By the time I figure out why he keeps showing up—even though I

A Little Retail Therapy

I just added some fun stuff to the KT Book Reviews Amazon Page ~ Check it out if you're so inclined 😊


Get it on Amazon Introduced within a dream, Calypso's Heart welcomes you in with a captivating premise. Well done new author M.C. Solaris!  Massive amounts of world-building as this is book one in Orion's Order and just the beginning of what I feel will be a fantastic series. Multiple POV's and much time spent getting to know the surrounding and secondary characters is to be expected. It's also a bit of a insta love/lust situation, but many Paranormal Romances are that way. When the animal inside knows what it wants it just knows! ((smirky-smirk)) Great Read. Fun characters and the beginnings of a new PNR series to watch out for! ~Tanja Sexy shifters. Hot vampires. Intriguing immortals. Strong heroine. Sizzling romance. Page-turning plot full of emotion and excitement. Modern and fresh take on fated mates. Caly Do you dream of ridiculously hot men? Okay, maybe you do. (And yes, I'm well aware I should

Kicking off with a heart-pounding introduction, she gives you a murder mystery you are utterly compelled to reach the ending as soon as you can. It's a great set up for an immediate reread as soon as you finish. From page one I was captivated and hunkered down for what I knew would be a gripping ride. The combo of reporter and cop is always a clever match up and Hidden provides a fresh yet classic take on the trope.  From the fabulous cover to the wild ride till I reached Hidden's ending..

The Secret Letters by Taryn Leigh

Releasing 9 August 2020 Get it on Amazon Sweet, uplifting, and suspenseful with a complex resolve is the best way I can describe The Secret Letter by Taryn Leigh. The way she conveyed a tough subject with a powerful yet reserved levity shows it's possible to come through the other side of trauma to find love, that's not only healing but within the characters' own time. Plus the added mystery?!? Fantastic! Powerful and well written! ~Tanja RACHEL, saved from an attack twelve years before by a faceless stranger, never got to thank him, never knew his name. Despite the devastation she chose to rise above it to help others from their pain by becoming a psychologist....

Kiss My Cupcake by Helena Hunting

Releases Aug 11th Get it on Amazon From the very beginning, Kiss My Cupcake has the reader invested and involved in two blossoming businesses. Two very driven, yet funny people have started their independent paths to prosperity in very close proximity. They are the perfect combination of meet-cute hilarity and little lingering interest that turn into more when they must combine forces. Its a simple tried and true formal that make enemies-to-lovers one of my favorite tropes. Fun. light and entertaining makes it a perfect summer read. T~ Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn't plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day. He may be super swoony, but Blaire hasn't spent years obsessing over buttercream and bourbon to have him ruin her chance at success. From axe throwing (his place) to fros
