Flashback Friday: Samson’s Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampires #1) by Tina Folsom

Flashback Friday: Samson’s Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampires #1) by Tina Folsom

   Reviews Karla says: 4.5 stars. From the very first hot sentence to the last page, I was hooked! Samson and Delilah (I know *rolls eyes*, just some of the author’s warped subtle humor) have sizzling chemistry. She seems to be the answer to his…ahem….problem. He can’t get IT up and once he meets her…IT doesn’t want to go down. Funny stuff. The connection they have is more than sexual and he has feelings for her that are not normal for a vampire. What a fun journey exploring this unique world, and seeing Samson and Delilah discovering each other on an emotional and intimate level. Some great secondary characters, a bit of […]

Review: Firebird by Jennifer Loring

Review: Firebird by Jennifer Loring

Steffi’s Review Jennifer Loring has a new fan! FIREBIRD blew me away with its raw emotion, intensity and the love between two people who simply belong together. Stephanie Hartwell needs a story or she’s going to lose her job as a sports journalist. An interview with the successful, womanizing hockey star Aleksandr Volynsky could be her ticket to a promotion but her boss doesn’t know that Steph and Alex were high school sweethearts until Aleksandr had to return to Russia and Steph stopped all contact. Now, nine years later, Alex and Stephanie meet again and their connection is stronger than ever. But Stephanie is engaged to be married and rekindling her […]

Review: Dirty by Kylie Scott

Review: Dirty by Kylie Scott

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! After writing my favorite rock band romance series, The Stage Dive series, I was ecstatic that Kylie Scott had ventured into a spinoff series that involves Vaughn, a secondary character from the Stage Dive series. This series will focus its attention on a community of characters that own and/or work at the Dive Bar, an amazing bar that features live entertainment, tasty food, and incredibly attractive bartenders! Vaughn has come home to sell his deceased parents home. He is weary from all the touring he’s done with Stage Dive and is somewhat rocked after the break-up of his band. He comes home to find a woman in […]

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: Emmy & Oliver  by Robin Benway

  Karla’s review 4 Stars! A touching, heartwarming, pensive read! “Oliver’s absence split us wide open, dividing our neighborhood along a fault line strong enough to cause an earthquake. An earthquake would have been better. At least during an earthquake, you understand why you’re shaking.” This thought-provoking story is about a parental kidnapping and the impact it has on the lives of the friends and family of a young boy who was taken by his father. Oh, the joy when he’s finally found, or maybe not… Oliver’s not a little boy anymore, he’s a teenager with his own opinions and feelings about what happened. He’s been taken all over again from […]

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: Enshrine by Chelle Bliss

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: Enshrine  by Chelle Bliss

Dorsey’s Review  4.5 Emotional Stars!! I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this story, the blurb is pretty vague but I had an inkling, so I wasn’t completely taken by surprise. Enshrine is my first read by Chelle Bliss and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style and the storyline captivated me from the very beginning. It completely sucked me in and my emotions were on a rollercoaster ride. “Things are just that—things. They don’t make us who we are. They make us look better on the outside, even when we’re hollow on the inside. They’re an illusion—the shiny objects that distract us from the really important things.” […]
