Have they died? Did they leave you for someone who actually cared? Two hours, Reed, and […]

Review: Midnight Marked (Chicagoland Vampires #12) by Chloe Neill

Review: Midnight Marked (Chicagoland Vampires #12) by Chloe Neill

  Karla’s review  5 Stars! Fantastic!  One of the best in the series! I can’t get enough, I am an Ethan and Merit groupie for life!  I started reading this series in 2009 and each time I read a new installment I want to go back and start all over, or at the very least, read my favorites parts, which all involve Ethan and Merit, no matter what they were doing. Even when they weren’t in a solid  relationship there was something special about their moments together that always had me tingling with anticipation of what was to come. Some books have been better than others and at one point or […]

Review: Duke Of Sin (Maiden Lane #10) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Duke Of Sin (Maiden Lane #10) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Crista’s Review Duke of Sin is book 10 of Elizabeth Hoyt’s brilliant Maiden Lane series.  It can be read as a standalone, but the characters do appear in other books and readers may miss some backstory if not familiar with the previous books.  On the other hand, this book is VERY different from all other books in the series, so it might actually work to read it all by itself. Valentine Napier, the Duke of Montgomery, is not a nice man.  He is definitely an anti-hero and has done some truly despicable things.  This is a new avenue for Hoyt, and she really does a fabulous job tackling a very difficult […]

Review: Honor & Roses (Swordcross Knights #1) by Elizabeth Cole

Review: Honor & Roses (Swordcross Knights #1) by Elizabeth Cole

  Steffi’s Review Get lost in the world of medieval England in Elizabeth Cole’s Honor & Roses! Originally drawn in by the beautiful cover, Elizabeth Cole quickly managed to transport me to another time and place. Honor & Roses starts off at a point when our heroine, Lady Cecily de Vere, is still quite young but there is already a strong bond between her and Alric of Hawksmere, one of her uncle’s trained knights. Not much older than Cecily, Alric leaves to fight in the war. When they meet again years later, the connection they once shared flares up again but Alric is below Cecily’s station and she is to be […]

Flashback Friday: Closing the Deal (Wicked Warrens #2) by Marie Harte

Flashback Friday: Closing the Deal (Wicked Warrens #2) by Marie Harte

  Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! I really enjoyed this sexy, sweet, quick read about Derrick and Sydney. We met them in Enjoying the Show, the first book in the series,  and I was looking forward to seeing how these two would make a connection. Derrick always gets what he wants and he wants Sydney, but she’s not having it, and so the chase is on! Who better to seek advice from than his mom and brothers. His mom, Barbara, and twin, Dylan, are psychologists, and of course, Gage is now the expert in the love department because he’s already hooked his own girl, Hailey. A very blunt and amusing conversation takes place, as it […]

Review: Isn’t She Lovely (Redemption 0.5) by Lauren Layne

Review: Isn’t She Lovely (Redemption 0.5) by Lauren Layne

karla’s review 5 Stars! A delightfully charming, very enjoyable New Adult romance! One of the best I’ve ever read! Too often for my taste, NA romances are filled with unnecessary drama and angst, and while Isn’t She Lovely has its share of emotional moments, the characters don’t resign themselves to childish behavior and pointless drama. Ethan and Stephanie understand their relationship was borne out of a scheme and ultimately has an end date…or does it? What they don’t expect is for the pretend to feel so real and to fall in love. Ethan was an incredibly sweet guy and a character who I came to adore.  He’s been molded from birth, […]
