Review: Every Little Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #2) by Samantha Young

Review: Every Little Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #2) by Samantha Young

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Every Little Thing is the second book in Samantha Young’s Harts Boardwalk series.  This series has a very “small town” feel to it, in that all the character live in the same town of Hartwell, Delaware.  The characters are business owners, friends, and neighbors who all rub elbows with one another on a consistent basis.  I was not a huge fan of the first book in this series, The One Real Thing.  Thankfully, this book was markedly better than it’s predecessor. We met Vaughn Tremaine and Bailey Hartwell in the first book and I could not wait for their story.  They were sworn enemies who you knew […]

Review: Hit the Spot (Dirty Deeds #2) by J. Daniels

Review: Hit the Spot (Dirty Deeds #2) by J. Daniels

Crista’s Review 3 ½ Stars! Hit the Spot is a book that I couldn’t wait to read after finishing Four-Letter Word.  The chemistry between Jaime and Tori was so evident in the first book that I couldn’t wait to see it finally play out.  I have found that couples who fight the most sometimes have incredibly explosive chemistry in and out of bed. Unfortunately, I found myself really put off by Jamie and his crude language and aggressive way of relating to Tori.  He came across as very immature, rude, and cocky.  Sometimes those types of heroes really work for me.  If the author is successful in getting them to soften […]

Release Day Review: The Stone Warriors: Kato by D.B. Reynolds

Reviews   Dorsey says: 5 Action Packed Sexy Stars!

When he is freed from his prison by unsuspecting Grace, Kato (along with Grace) embark on a mission to track down and eliminate the dangerous demons Grace unwittingly unleashed while attempting to decode three ancient scrolls. “They’ll never let us in there.” “Yes, they will,” he said with such irritating confidence that she wanted to slug him.

Review: Four Letter Word (Dirty Deeds #1) by J. Daniels

Review: Four Letter Word (Dirty Deeds #1) by J. Daniels

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Wow!  This book came out of nowhere and surprised the daylights out of me.  Here I thought I was going to reading a quick, steamy, and lighthearted romance, and instead I got THIS.  Four-Letter Word was anything but lighthearted.  This is a romance filled with so much angst that your heart hurts for a great portion of the book. Brian and Sydney have an unlikely romance in the fact that they meet after Sydney accidentally calls the wrong number.  Her intent is to unleash her fury on her best friend’s ex-boyfriend who has just broken her friend’s heart.  She dials the number and when “he” answers, she […]

Transfer (The Retrieval Duet #2) by Aly Martinez

Transfer (The Retrieval Duet #2) by Aly Martinez

Crista’s Review 5 stars! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** Please be careful when reading reviews about Transfer.  This second book in the Retrieval Duet must be experienced without knowing much about it to be enjoyed to its fullest. In a nutshell, Transfer is about Clare’s journey away from the darkness of her marriage and the monster with whom she is married into the light of freedom, safety, and love. Ever since watching Julia Roberts in the movie Sleeping With the Enemy, and then watching Julianne Hough in the movie Safe Haven, I have been looking for a book that would give me the same kind of butterflies and edge of my seat suspense that […]

Review: Retrieval (The Retrieval Duet #1) by Aly Martinez

Review: Retrieval (The Retrieval Duet #1)  by Aly Martinez

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Wow!  This is book 1 of a book “duet”, and let me tell you, I guarantee that after you read this, you’ll be reaching for the next book as quickly as you can!  This first book has a little bit of everything: heartbreak, forgiveness, renewal, and hope. This is the story of a couple who experience a huge tragedy that ultimately leads to their divorce.  It is told in alternating perspectives, which is important as their entire relationship is retold in a series of flashbacks. This book aptly named.  Roman is still completely in love with his ex-wife Elisabeth, and at the first sign of a green […]
