Review: Until It’s Right by Jamie Howard

Review: Until It’s Right by Jamie Howard

Steffi’s Review Initially, I was wary to start a book by Jamie Howard since I knew that her debut, Until We Break, had a few pet peeves of mine in the story line. The blurb of Until It’s Right sounded so appealing, however, that I decided to give this author a try myself. I am so glad I did. While I will probably never go back and read Until We Break, Until It’s Right made me a new fan of Jamie Howard’s. Haley Mitchell went through a tough break up. With an ex-boyfriend she was expecting to marry, Haley is finally ready to join the dating world again. When she meets Bryce […]

Review: Bitter Bite (Elemental Assassin #14) by Jennifer Estep

Review: Bitter Bite (Elemental Assassin #14) by Jennifer Estep

Karla’s Review 4 Stars! A good read but missing some of that “WOW” factor! I love the Elemental Assassin series and have been in it from the beginning. I anxiously wait for each release and my expectations are always high. Jennifer Estep usually meets or exceeds them, but Bitter Bite didn’t quite work for me as the other books in the series have. If I had to put my finger on what was missing I would say it was due to Deidre’s, Finn’s mother, elemental aspect. Part of what I look forward to is finding out what horrific power the evil entity possesses and she had an elemental power we’ve seen […]

Flashback Friday: Ice Storm (Ice, #4) by Anne Stuart

Flashback Friday: Ice Storm (Ice, #4)  by Anne Stuart

Dorsey’s Review 5 Delicious Anti-Hero Stars!!! Isobel met Killian for the first time when he saved her from a brutal rape. She was eighteen years old and touring Europe before heading to college in Paris. Killian is not the “Knight in Shining Armor” he portrayed himself as. He is a professional killer and needs a cover so he uses young Isobel.  She is the innocent, naïve American girl and is the perfect cover. He callously uses her and breaks her young heart which turned her into the cold women she is today. I loved Madame Isobel Lambert, the “Ice Madame”, and her backstory with Killian. I’ve been fascinated with her since her […]

Review: Power Play (Pilot’s Hockey #2) by Sophia Henry

Review: Power Play (Pilot’s Hockey #2) by Sophia Henry

Steffi’s Review Not usually being a fan of YA/NA, I was introduced to the Pilot’s Hockey series because the blurb of book one, Delayed Penalty caught my attention. Not only did I love Auden and Sasha in Delayed Penalty, it made me very curious about Logan. While her characters are young, Sophia Henry gives them a grown up and responsible voice which I really appreciate. Gabriella’s family owns several produce shops and market stalls as well as a recently opened local artisan shop in Detroit. Logan’s family has gotten their produce from the Bertucci’s since he was in diapers and they’ve casually known each other all their lives. When Gabriella’s father has […]

Review: Worth the Fight (MMA Fighter, #1) by Vi Keeland

Review: Worth the Fight (MMA Fighter, #1)  by Vi Keeland

Dorsey’s review  4.5 Fighting Stars!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I’m not normally a “Sports Romance” type of gal but it came highly recommended and I knew I needed to read it! I loved both the hero and the heroine and the complexity of their characters. They both had demons in their past that they were punishing themselves for and believed they were unworthy of any kind of future happiness. Elle is a bright young attorney and is working long hours at a small firm where she interned. She is steadily seeing a fellow attorney, William, who she went to law school with. He is more of a “friends with […]

Review: A Better Man (Sunshine Creek Vineyard #1) by Candis Terry

Review: A Better Man (Sunshine Creek Vineyard #1) by Candis Terry

Steffi’s Review While A Better Man is my first book by Candis Terry and I didn’t know what to expect, I was immediately drawn in by the beautiful cover. A great suspenseful contemporary romance, I enjoyed spending time with the Kincade family but our hero, Jordan, didn’t click with me. After a tragic accident that kills Jordan’s parents, the hockey player returns home to his large family. After being absent for so long and only thinking about his career, Jordan has a lot to make up for, especially with his teenage sister, Nikki. Lucy is not only Nikki’s teacher, the one whose class she is failing, she is also the shy, […]

Review: Here Comes The Rainne Again (Invertary #6) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Review: Here Comes The Rainne Again (Invertary #6) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Steffi’s Review Since reading her first published book, I’ve been a die-hard Janet Elizabeth Henderson fan. Her stories are written with a unique, quirky and witty voice that guarantees a good time! Here Comes The Rainne Again is almost like a mid-series wrap up – it ties up a lot of lose ends, introduces new characters and lets us revisit with some old favorites. Since the story relies heavily on the plot from previous books, you should at least have read Lingerie Wars (it’s free, so no reason not to get it:)). I’ve been waiting for Rainne and Alastair’s happy ending since the first book in the Invertary series. At that […]

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

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. After years at war with France, Geoffrey is finally free to return to his betrothed and marry the love of his life. No one could have anticipated that they would only get to spend one night together as a married couple when Geoffrey disappears all of a sudden. Seven years later, Geoffrey returns but, unwilling to share the reason for his long absence, Merryn hardly recognizes her […]
