Review: Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Review: Stuck-Up Suit  by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Dorsey’s Review 4 Sexy Fun Texting Stars!! Graham and Soraya’s story starts with a cell phone on a train. A cell phone that belongs to a pompous, rude, jerk of a guy….albeit a drop-dead gorgeous jerk of a guy, who Soraya has dubbed as “Mr. Big Prick”.  He’s a gorgeous jerk without his phone since Soraya finds it as she’s exiting the train…and now the fun begins. Talk about opposites attracting. Soraya is feisty, fun, and a bit flamboyant. She’s the personal assistant to an advice columnist and hears a lot of sob stories from people who need advice. But rarely does she get to actually give the advice she would love […]

I’m All Ears ~ An Audio Book Review: Origin in Death (In Death, #21) by J.D. Robb

I’m All Ears ~ An Audio Book Review: Origin in Death (In Death, #21)  by J.D. Robb

Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! 21 books in and this series it’s still going strong…at least for me! What I love most about this series is the character development. Not only are the crimes imaginative and the police procedures interesting, this one had a strong sci-fi element, and the characters aren’t one-dimensional. Their personalities are getting stronger and they are coming into their own. From the beginning of the series to this book about 18 months passed, and the pace in which the characters are evolving fits the timeline. You can’t change overnight, these things take time and people and events shape us into who we become and that’s what J. D. […]

Review: What We Find (Sullivan’s Crossing #1) by Robyn Carr

Review: What We Find (Sullivan’s Crossing #1) by Robyn Carr

Karla’s Review 4 Stars! A nice start to this new series!  This is what I like to refer to as quiet read, not much in the way of a wow factor or too exciting, but a nice way to spend an afternoon with a good book. The story focuses on two people dealing with life-changing events that have affected them both personally and professionally.  They are both taking a break and contemplating what route they should take next. Their paths cross in a surprising place, a campground, and a setting I really enjoyed. The two central characters, Cal and Maggie, were a good fit.  They were both professionals their late 30’s, […]

Review: Crow (Boston Underworld #1) by A. Zavarelli

Review: Crow (Boston Underworld #1) by A. Zavarelli

Dorsey’s Review 2.5 Irish Mafia Stars!! Not sure where to start, there was a lot going on in this book. We have Irish, Armenian, Russian, and Italian mafia all in one book… This book centers on Lachlan Crow aka Crow, an Irish Mafia Underboss…he is second or third in line for the head of the MacKenna Syndicate depending on the head honcho. The Syndicate is trying to form an alliance with the Russian mafia by arranging a marriage between Crow and a Russian mafia princess. Meanwhile, they are trying to stay off the Italian mafia’s radar and being attacked by the Armenian mafia. The last thing he needs or wants is […]

Review: Damian (Stone Warriors #1) by D.B. Reynolds

Review: Damian (Stone Warriors #1) by D.B. Reynolds

Reviews Dorsey says:  5 Warrior God Stars!!! Damian is the first book in the new Stone Warriors series, a spin-off of D. B. Reynolds’s Vampires in America. We met Nick Katsaros, Cyn’s one-time lover in Raphael, and again when he became an unlikely ally in Deception. This book picks up after Compelled.  As we discovered from the most recent ViA books, Nick is an ancient and powerful sorcerer whose nemesis magically encased his four warrior brothers in stone for centuries. Nick’s quest has been to find and free his brothers and seek revenge on his enemy. I have to admit, I really didn’t think I would like this new series as […]

Review Rewind: Firelight (Darkest London #1) by Kristen Callihan

Review Rewind: Firelight (Darkest London #1) by Kristen Callihan

Steffi’s Review 4.5 Stars!  Firelight enthralled me; it gripped me tight and wouldn’t let me go. The mystery and magic and sensuality of this book are so fascinating and kept me reading long into the night. We meet the lead characters, Miranda and Archer, for the first time in 1878. Directly, we know that Miranda is not an average girl just waiting for the right suitor to knock on her door. She is a strong-willed, talented and beautiful young woman who can very well take care of herself. Three years later, Miranda is forced to marry a man she has never met before, or so she thinks. It turns out that Archer […]

Quickie Review: Interference (Pilot’s Hockey, #3) by Sophia Henry

Quickie Review: Interference (Pilot’s Hockey, #3) by Sophia Henry

Steffi’s Review The third book in the Pilots Hockey series tells the long awaited story of Jason Taylor. I was very excited for Jason’s story since finding out a bit more about him in Power Play as he is Landon’s brother. While it is beneficial to read the first two books in the series, Interference can be read as a stand alone. I knew I was going to like Jason but didn’t expect to fall in love with Linden and her family so much. She is a fantastic heroine for this story and a great fit for Jason. Linden had to overcome many obstacles, raising her son with only the help of […]

Review: Her Forbidden Hero (The Hero #1) by Laura Kaye

Review: Her Forbidden Hero (The Hero #1) by Laura Kaye

Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! Oh my, what a sweet, emotional read. Laura Kaye does the tortured hero so well, and Marco fits the bill to a “t”!! He’s angry, confused, and the last thing he needs is more drama in his life, but that’s exactly what he gets when Alyssa walks into the bar where he works looking for a job. She is his best friend’s little sister, he looked out for her when she was younger and this is the last place he expects to see her. He’s not happy and boy does he let her know it! So much for happy reunions! Alyssa adores Marco and is in love with […]

Review Rewind: Fury of Fire (Dragonfury #1) by Coreene Callahan

Review Rewind: Fury of Fire (Dragonfury #1) by Coreene Callahan

Karla’s Review 4 Stars! Great start to what should prove to be a HOT series!! If the secondary characters are any indication of what’s to come we are in for a treat. It held my attention from beginning to end, it’s not a long book, and I blew right through it. Bastian and Myst were dyno-mite! Great names, fantastic couple, sexy steamy skin on skin time! SSSSSSSSSSMOKIN’ hot fire breathin’ and I’m not talkin’ about dragon breath! Usually, it’s the guy that’s the aggressor, but Myst didn’t hold back, she wanted her man, scales, wings and all. Watch out, woman in lust! There was plenty of action, great characters, including two […]
