Review: Worth It All (The McKinney Brothers #3) by Claudia Connor

Review: Worth It All (The McKinney Brothers #3) by Claudia Connor

Karla’s Review  5 Stars!! My goodness did I enjoy this book! This inspiring story delivers a heartfelt message about overcoming adversity and forgiveness. It also depicts the resilience of children and how they view the world and triumph over life’s challenges in a most simplistic manner. Claudia Connor takes chances with her storylines and it’s what draws me to The McKinney Brothers series again and again. While I had an issue with one of her characters in the first book, Worth the Fall, the couple pairing and family dynamic was unique and for the most part I enjoyed the read. Her debut book impressed me enough that I couldn’t wait for […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: A Breach of Promise (The Rules of Engagement #1) by Victoria Vane

Flashback Friday Favorite: A Breach of Promise (The Rules of Engagement #1) by Victoria Vane

Reviews Kristen says: 4.5 Stars! WOW! What an unexpected surprise A Breach of Promise turned out to be! I was captivated, riveted, and charmed by this superbly written short story. I’m in awe of Ms. Vane’s ability to write a novella that is not only historically detailed, engaging, and cleverly contrived, but simultaneously sweeps the reader into a world full of richly developed characters, and terrific, witty dialogue. The cast of characters in this short story were simply amazing for a novella. I can honestly say, I don’t think I’ve read a more charming, delightful, and so full of himself hero! Marcus was such a weasel. I couldn’t help but love the conceited rake. I absolutely […]

Spotlight: The Keeper (Crossing Realms #1) by Rebecca E. Neely

Spotlight: The Keeper (Crossing Realms #1) by Rebecca E. Neely

Sacrifice or salvation? A chosen psychic few may be both. As the city’s Keepers battle Betrayers to save the human race, all’s not fair in love and war. Excerpt Her index finger found the button and lowered the window a crack. Immediately, he raised his hands. “I’m not going to hurt you. I’m unarmed.” Always good to hear. She cocked her head, perplexed. “Who are you?” “Nick Geary.” Unsmiling, a muscle worked in his jaw. He held her hostage with his eyes. “We need to talk.” Her heart tripped. No doubt about it. She’d never heard of any Nick Geary, never seen this man before in her life. Or had she? […]

I’m All Ears ~ An Audiobook Review: Sidebarred (The Legal Briefs #3.5) by Emma Chase

I’m All Ears ~ An Audiobook Review: Sidebarred (The Legal Briefs #3.5) by Emma Chase

Karla’s Review 5++ Feel Good Stars! A delightful sweet treat for readers whose hearts were captured by the charming characters in Sustained. This novella brings us up to speed on Jake, Chelsea and their adorable brood of kiddies along with Stanton and Sofia from Overruled, and Brent and Kennedy from Appealed. I was thrilled when I realized that Emma Chase was going to top this amazing series off with another chance for readers to re-visit with all the characters we fell  in love with in the Legal Brief series. The characters remain true to themselves and the author doesn’t drag the plot down with unnecessary angst but instead gives readers an […]

Flashback Friday: My One and Only by Kristan Higgins

Flashback Friday: My One and Only by Kristan Higgins

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! Wonderful! A sweet story about getting it right the second time around. Lots of great characters, especially Harper and Nick. He’s so laid back and willing to let life play itself out and she over-thinks things and acts on a whim. Yet they are perfect for each other. Harper’s feelings were so well written and even though her personality was annoying at times, my heart just broke for her. Nick’s declaration of love just warmed me through and through. You’ll find yourself placing your hand over your heart and breathing out a happy sigh. Loved it! My One and Only is a keeper! A feel good book […]

Review: Compelled (Vampires in America #10.5) by D.B. Reynolds

Dorsey’s Review 5 Compelling Stars!!! D.B.Reynolds delivers once again in Compelled!! We are treated to an enthralling, fast-paced, entertaining and passionate Vampires in America novella! Two impossibly powerful alphas, who have enough distrust and hatred for one another to cause Cyn headaches are thrown together for a common goal; find the manacles that imprisoned Raphael in Deception, but will the love they share for Cyn be enough to prevent the violence they both want to unleash on one another? “Vampire,” he said by way of greeting. “Sorcerer.” “Human!” she sang out in disgust. -Nick, Raphael, and Cyn  Cyn is called upon to uphold the promise she made to Nick to help […]

Review: The Beast by J.R. Ward

Review: The Beast by J.R. Ward

Reviews Dorsey says: 5 Beautiful Beast Stars!! Rhage, aka “Hollywood” is the most handsome brother who’s cursed with a Beast. His Mary is the immortal human who owns his heart and soul, together they make the most unlikely couple, yet they totally fit. Rhage is very humorous, he always has something funny to say and is very sweet, whereas Mary is very serious. I have to say I didn’t totally fully connect with Mary in Lover Eternal but in The Beast…I totally connected with her and fell in love with them as a couple. They truly convinced me that they completely belong together, they are meant for one another. “You are […]

Blog Tour: Layers of Her by Prescott Lane

Blog Tour: Layers of Her by Prescott Lane

    A Letter to my Readers   Rape. Just typing that word makes my gut tie up in knots. And that’s part of the problem. Because it’s so uncomfortable, we don’t want to talk about it. So it gets buried at the bottom the newsfeed or forgotten altogether, like the backlog of untested rape kits.   Last March, I released Quiet Angel in which the heroine is a survivor of childhood sexual assault. A few weeks later, my husband became gravely ill, and we spent the rest of the year (5 long hospital stays and 4 long surgeries) fighting to regain his health. As I sat in the hospital chair […]
