Review: The Highlander (Victorian Rebels, #3) by Kerrigan Byrne

Reviews Dorsey says: 4.5 Demon Highlander Stars!! The Highlander is the third book in the Victorian Rebels series and it was just as fantastic as the first two books in the series!! MacKenzie is known as the “Demon Highlander”. He earned his reputation because of his deadly fighting skills and imposing appearance and suddenly finds his life is changed forever when his children’s new governess arrives. “Sometimes……when in a predicament like yours, the safest place to be is at the side of a violent man.” Philomena “Mena” St. Vincent is on the run from her horrid abusive husband, the things he subjected her to broke my heart. Mena escaped her prison with […]

Review: The One Real Thing ((Hart’s Boardwalk, #1) by Samantha Young

Review: The One Real Thing ((Hart’s Boardwalk, #1) by Samantha Young

Crista’s Review 3 Stars! I honestly can’t believe that I am rating a book written by the talented Samantha Young anything less than 5 stars.  Her, On Dublin Street series, is one of my all-time favorites, and I was thrilled to learn that she was beginning a brand new series called Hart’s Boardwalk. I found myself bored by this book.  The characters just weren’t that compelling or interesting.  Jessica Huntington is a physician who works for a women’s correctional facility.  She comes across love letters written by a former inmate who is now deceased and makes it her mission to deliver the letters to their intended recipient. This mission takes her to […]

Review: Hard Core by Tess Oliver

Review: Hard Core by Tess Oliver

Dorsey’s Review 3.5 Stars!! I loved the idea of this book, but I didn’t feel the overwhelming powerful connection between Ledger and Jacy that I love to have in my heroes and heroines. Jacy’s picking up the pieces of her life after getting out of an abusive marriage. Ledger was always in trouble growing up until one day he went a bit too far and ended up in jail. Ledger and Jacy are both trying to live their lives and find comfort in one another…but Ledger is keeping a secret, one that can destroy the fragile relationship their building. Honestly, I can understand why Ledger hesitated to tell Jacy the truth […]

Flashback Friday: Playing for Keeps (Neighbor from Hell #1) by R.L. Mathewson

Flashback Friday: Playing for Keeps (Neighbor from Hell #1) by R.L. Mathewson

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! The ideal blend of romance, humor, angst, and spice! I loved everything about this book. Jason and Haley’s first interaction, their friendship that becomes more, the falling out, the reconciling, and lordy lordy, their time between the sheets was steamy and sensual. The writing is wonderful, plenty of witty dialogue, and it included a delightful array of amusing secondary characters. It’s the perfect length; it was enough story that you’re committed to the characters, yet the plot is not overwhelming. I felt very much at ease with Jason and Haley’s relationship, it was comfortable and developed rather nicely. The time they spent together as buddies made me […]

Review: Sting by Sandra Brown

Review: Sting by Sandra Brown

Dorsey’s Review  4 Stars!! Sandra Brown is one of my favorite romantic suspense writers, her novels keep me on the edge, her characters are intriguing, mysterious, and some are just plain sinister.

In order to avoid prison, Josh is working the with the FBI. Naturally, his employer has sent two men to kill him, Mickey Bolden and Shaw Kinnard.

Review: Once Upon a Moonlit Night (Maiden Lane #10.5) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Once Upon a Moonlit Night (Maiden Lane #10.5) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Oh, how I loved this novella!!  If you are looking for a few laughs, some quick entertainment, and a believable and passionate romance, this novella has all you could hope for and more!! I have been a fan of the Maiden Lane series since the beginning.  I envy those people that have never read the series, because the Maiden Lane series is ten and a half books of pure entertainment.  Of course, some are more memorable than others, but in the hands of Elizabeth Hoyt, you are always guaranteed a good read.  Once Upon a Moonlit Night, although a novella, is no exception to this rule.  I […]

Review: Deadly Silence (Blood Brothers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Deadly Silence (Blood Brothers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti

Dorsey’s Review   4 Fantastic Spin-off Stars!! First off, I’m a huge…HUGE fan of the Sin Brothers series and I’m thrilled to say that it’s not over! Blood Brothers, Rebecca Zanetti’s new series, is a spinoff of the Sin Brothers and introduces a trio of brothers who are trying to survive while looking for answers to their past. Their upbringing is much different than the Dean Brothers but certainly not any better. Ryker and his brothers find the lost. When the law firm that Zara works for hires their services, Zara and Ryker develop a physical relationship, while Ryker keeps his past and secrets close. Ryker and Zara are trying to understand […]

Review Rewind: CONTROL BY CHARLOTTE STEIN

Review Rewind: CONTROL BY CHARLOTTE STEIN

Karla’s Review *image courtesy of Dorsey* 4.5 Sizzlin’ Stars! This book was not at all what I expected; it was so much more. It made me LOSE my control! It started out as a very “juicy” erotic read and then developed into a lusty love story! It’s told from Madison’s point-of-view and the style of writing is certainly different. It took more than a few pages to get used to it. Madison owns an erotic bookstore. She wants to hire an assistant and ends up having some very bawdy trysts, as in many steamy and sizzling, with Andy, a hot hunky applicant. She certainly was attracted to him, as he was […]

Review: Too Hot to Handle (The Clarksons, #1) by Tessa Bailey

Review: Too Hot to Handle (The Clarksons, #1) by Tessa Bailey

Dorsey’s Review 3 “Too Hot To Handle” Stars! Rita Clarkson and her three siblings set out to honor their deceased mother’s last wish, so they pack up the old suburban and set out on a road trip from San Francisco to New York City to participate in the polar bear plunge on New Year’s Day, just as their mother had done many years earlier. Rita is having a hard time lately, she has just (accidentally…sort of) burned down her famed mother’s restaurant where she was head chef and had a mishap on a televised cooking show that made her an unwilling YouTube star. She is definitely at crossroads in her life so […]
