REVIEW: THE HOOKUP (Moonlight and Motor Oil Series Book 1) By Kristen Ashley

REVIEW: THE HOOKUP (Moonlight and Motor Oil Series Book 1) By Kristen Ashley

Dorsey’s Review 5 Rainbows and Motor Oil Stars! If you’re dying to read a classic Kristen Ashley book that’s sizzling hot and a hopelessly romantic love story with a touch of drama thrown in for good measure, The Hookup is a must-read! Johnny Gamble *sigh* is a KA signature ALPHA. He’s protective, possessive, and a delicious over-the-top Alpha. I have to say, Johnny Gamble is a worthy addition to my “KA Favorite Hero’s Shelf”. Johnny Gamble is well known in town. After his ex-girlfriend betrayed him three years earlier, he’s been indifferent, distant, and all about business in his hometown of Matlock, KY. The town may think they know his story, but they don’t […]

REVIEW: Vengeance Aside by Nancy Haviland (Wanted Men #0.5)

Dorsey’s Review 5 “Mr. Murdery” Stars!! Nancy Haviland has once again enthralled me with her powerful writing ability to totally captivate me and suck me into a world that I wish I was part of! Which, as a reader is saying something since I normally avoid the dark gritty world of mafia romance. In Vengeance Aside we meet Lukas and Dale who have an instant connection in this sizzling addition to Nancy Haviland’s Wanted Men series. The chemistry and attraction between Lukas and Dale was off the charts hot. It was instant, palpable, and I was on the edge of my seat with giddy anticipation to see how things would play out between […]

REVIEW: GIFTS (The Killers #3) By Brynne Asher

REVIEW: GIFTS (The Killers  #3) By Brynne Asher

Dorsey’s Review 5 Killer Stars!! Gifts by Brynne Asher is the third book in The Killer series, and (as of right now) is my absolute favorite so far, although, books one and two are awesome too so that’s saying something! I hadn’t read very many single dad books, but thanks to Brynne Asher I’m going to have to consider this genre. Asa Hollingsworth is just the type of man I love to read about, he’s all ALPHA, hot, bossy, a loving dad, and loyal friend. Keelie is a high school counselor and a single parent who has a ton of worries and responsibilities on her shoulders. She tries her hardest to put […]

Review Rewind: THE SIREN (THE ORIGINAL SINNERS #1) BY TIFFANY REISZ

Review Rewind: THE SIREN (THE ORIGINAL SINNERS #1) BY TIFFANY REISZ

Karla’s Review 5 Head Spinning Stars!! Although some of the subject matter in this book was not always comfortable to read about I was ENTHRALLED and had to keep reading. A book that does that is worth 5 STARS from me and then some!! si•ren: a seductively beautiful or charming woman, especially one who beguiles men, aka Nora Sutherlin. I honestly don’t even know where to begin with this book, nor how to write a review that gives The Siren and Tiffany Reisz the proper adulations. There are circumstances in this book that arise that I would normally condone, but the author makes us comprehend and accept that not all situations warrant the same handling. […]
