Flashback Friday: Wild Thing by Anne Stuart

Flashback Friday: Wild Thing by Anne Stuart

  crista’s review  4 Stars! Leave it up to Anne Stuart to write a book like this. I wonder if she spends time thinking “What’s the most unlikely of heroes?” , and then sets out to make that person just that…a hero. This time, it’s “Tarzan!”….and it works. What I really liked was the humor. Stuart’s humor catches you off guard at times because it is so unexpected in the backdrop of her “dark” story-lines. In this one, Libby is a scientist hired to “study” this “wild man”. She feels sorry for him, let’s him go,…and he carries her off into the jungle like a sack of potatoes! She TALKS INCESSANTLY…prattling […]

Review: The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

Review: The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

  Steffi’s Review Being a big fan of Mariana Zapata’s writing, I was really excited about the release of The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me, especially since her other sports romance, Kulti, was a big hit with me. The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me certainly didn’t disappoint and it might actually be my new favorite by this author. All Adrian Graves wants to do and focus on is his football career. As one of the best defensive ends in the NFO, he wants to get the most out of the game he loves. That’s where Vanessa comes in. As his assistant, Vanessa takes care of Adrian’s life, from making appintments, running […]

Review: Word Of Honor (Knights Of Valor #1) by Lauren Linwood

Steffi’s Review Lauren Linwood whisks readers away to another place and time in this historical romance with a love that is strong enough to overcome anything. Merryn and Geoffrey have been close since childhood, their friendship growing into love when they matured into adults.

Seven years later, Geoffrey returns but, unwilling to share the reason for his long absence, Merryn hardly recognizes her […]

Review: The Hurricane (The Hurricane #1) by R.J. Prescott

Dorsey’s Review 4 Fighting for Love Stars!!! The Hurricane begins with Emily, a university student working as a waitress in a diner, and very obviously trying hard not to be noticed. She’s running from her horrific past and trying to stay free, so she keeps her head down, rarely makes eye contact, and never makes acquaintances.

Cormac “The Hurricane” O’Connell is a fighter at the gym Danny owns, and when he meets Emily his whole world changes. “She […]

Review: RoomHate by Penelope Ward

Review: RoomHate by Penelope Ward

Crista’s Review ROOMHATE by Penelope Ward was a quick, emotion-filled, romantic read that I was able read in less than a day.  It was a book that I wasn’t quite sold on, so I played it safe and downloaded the sample before committing.   If only the book could have kept the same intensity going as the first three chapters!! This is a love story that spans many years.  Our main characters lived next to one another growing up and were best friends.  As they went through puberty, that friendship grew into a deeper attraction.  When Amelia discovers a painful truth and decides to move away, her decision breaks Justin’s heart and […]

Review: The Story Guy (Lakefield novellas) by Mary Ann Rivers

Review: The Story Guy (Lakefield novellas) by Mary Ann Rivers

Crista says: The Story Guy is a quick and short read that never comes across that way. It is multi-layered, unique, and memorable. Brian Newburgh and Carrie West meet online after Carrie answers a personal add. The add states that Brian is looking for a Wednesday afternoon weekly meeting that will consist of “kissing only”. The add clearly states that this meeting will not result in a relationship or anything further sexual. Kissing only. This is of course a romance novel, so the rules set up in the personal add were meant to be broken:) Although this relationship starts out “playing by the rules”, as the chemistry heats up between Brian […]

Review: Magenta Mine (Invertary #3) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Review: Magenta Mine (Invertary #3) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Steffi’s Review Janet Elizabeth Henderson convinces in this hilarious, quirky and very sweet Invertary novella! While Magenta Mine is part of the Invertary series, and I highly recommend all books, it can absolutely be read as a stand-alone. Magenta Fraser and Harry Boyle have been friends since childhood. The resident genius, Harry started university at 16 and left a 13-year-old Magenta behind in Invertary. When he visits his hometown again on his first semester break, Magenta won’t have anything to do with him. Years later, Harry is back in town and he won’t let Magenta push him away again. After all, she is the love of his life. Magenta comes off […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Reviews Splage says: 5 Stars! This is the second book I’ve read by Barbara Elsborg and both have been big hits with me. I love that she can write knock-your-socks-off erotica with a meaty story and characters you fall in love with. Caspar is the brooding hero that the whole town hates. He is the son of an Earl, has zero money, zero potential to get a job because of a past tragedy that the town holds him responsible for and he can’t forgive himself for the incident either. He uses women, one night stands only, and he tries to do things to make people hate him even more. But, he’s the […]

Review: A Reason To Live (Reason #3) by C.P. Smith

Review: A Reason To Live (Reason #3) by C.P. Smith

Dorsey’s Review 5 Stars! CP Smith gives me so many reasons to read!! Shane Sherman…where to begin! He’s passionate, controlling, stubborn, protective, and a thoroughly ALL ALPHA MAN!!! If you’re in trouble, he’s the one that you want protecting you, because if it means him dying to make you safe he’s prepared to meet his maker!!!! Unfortunately, he fails to see all the qualities that make him a good friend, protector, and partner, he sees failure when he looks in the mirror. He remembers that one event in his past that prevents him from seeing the wonderful and honorable man he is. When Sage shows up out of the blue, she […]
