Rock Chick Reawakening (Rock Chick 0.5) by Kristen Ashley

  Dorsey’s Review  5+ Building Castle Stars!!! To say I was excited to hear KA was writing Daisy and Marcus’s story is an understatement, I have wanted their story for a very long time, I was beyond excited!!! I’ve wanted to know how Daisy fell for….no way to avoid it, a criminal…a respected businessman and feared crime boss. Marcus has always been a bit of a mystery, but, we always had the knowledge that he adored Daisy, and Daisy loved and adored him right back, there was absolutely no mistaking his love and devotion to Daisy throughout the RC Series. “I’ll handle you with care. I’ll always handle you with care. […]

Lucifer (Vampires in America #11) by D.B. Reynolds

Lucifer (Vampires in America #11) by D.B. Reynolds

Dorsey’s Review 5 Vampire-Loving Stars!! D.B. Reynolds does it again!! She is truly a master storyteller. I wish I had even a quarter of her amazing storytelling talent! Once again she has given us a delicious vampire to fall in love with. In Lucifer we actually get two storylines that are interwoven, but this is definitely Lucifer’s book.  However, we all know that something is going on with Lady Sophia and her mate Colin and we finally get answers. Lucifer, like all DBR’s vampires, is gorgeous, witty, charming and has an abundance of charisma, he’s also very passionate and a bit vulnerable at times, but only when it comes to Eleanor. […]

Going Deep (Alpha Ops #5) by Anne Calhoun

Going Deep (Alpha Ops #5) by Anne Calhoun

Crista’s Review 2 Stars!  I am sorry, but this one did not work for me. It’s been awhile since I read a book written by this author.  I’m not sure if my preferences have changed, the writing style is different, or if this just wasn’t one of her best works.  Whatever the reason, I struggled to finish this one. First off, I was in the mood for a good romantic suspense novel.  This book just isn’t one.  It’s a contemporary romance at best. This is also a book that reminded me a lot of the movie The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.  In this book, Cady Ward is a […]

Review: Duke of Pleasure (Maiden Lane #11) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Duke of Pleasure (Maiden Lane #11) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Crista’s Review 5 Stars! I wish that Duke of Pleasure could be made into a movie.  The drama, intrigue, romance, and larger than life characters would come alive on the big screen.  I also kept seeing the man on the cover in my mind while I read this novel, and I would love to see him in the flesh!! This can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s better if you’ve been reading the series and are familiar with the characters.  However, I am a reader of this series, and I’m not sure how I could’ve missed that Alf is a GIRL!!  Alf is a beloved character from previous books that […]

Review: Midnight Untamed (Midnight Breed #14.5) by Lara Adrian

Review: Midnight Untamed (Midnight Breed #14.5) by Lara Adrian

Dorsey’s Review 4 Savage Stars! Ettore “Savage” Selveggio is a Breed Warrior with the Rome Order who’s on a mission to take down the head of organization controlled by Opus in Italy. Just when he’s about to execute his plan he spots a young woman among the enemy who is achingly familiar. A woman he walked away from 10 years earlier, a woman who still owns his heart. Naturally, plans change and we are treated to another great Midnight Breed fight against the enemy and hot breed mating!! We are again introduced to a new character, this time it’s Trygg’s damaged, silent, and deadly brother Scythe. All I can say is […]

Review: Unraveled (Elemental Assassin #15) by Jennifer Estep

Karla’s Review  4.5 Stars! God help me the day this series comes to an end, I’ll have to find a withdrawal program. I can’t imagine not being able to look forward to another installment in this series…I enjoy it that much! What’s the saying…don’t bring a knife to a gunfight…that is unless you’re Gin Blanco because she wields her weapon of choice with pinpoint accuracy! This was another action packed, kickass installment in this ever evolving series! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, when this group of friends and family work collectively to oust the enemy, it makes the story even better. Gin alone is magic, the group at […]

Review: First Star I See Tonight (Chicago Stars, #8) by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Review: First Star I See Tonight (Chicago Stars, #8)  by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! When Susan Elizabeth Phillips is at her best, she writes on a different writing plane than anyone else in the business.  Her quirky characters, witty dialogue, and memorable scenes, make me eager anticipate whatever she publishes.  While First Star I See Tonight is not my absolute favorite of her books, it is reminiscent of some of her best works. The Chicago Stars series is absolutely a “must-read” series and one that I find myself thinking of and coming back to year after year.  Whenever I want to introduce someone to the romance genre, it is this series that is my “go-to” series.  First Star I See Tonight […]

Review: Whiskey Neat (Uncertain Saint’s MC, #1)  by Lani Lynn Vale

Dorsey’s Review 4 Not Your Typical MC Book Stars!! Griffin is part of a MC Club, however, this is not your typical MC club, all the “brothers” in the club all happen to be in some type of law enforcement. Griffin himself is a Texas Ranger who is out for revenge on the persons responsible for the death of his child. Lenore is the owner and operator of the towns only adult toy store. Lenore and Griffin meet when he makes a late night purchase at her store. Their introduction was quite cute and entertaining. When Griffin meets Lenore he feels things he doesn’t want to feel. He tries to stay away […]

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Crista’s Review 5 Stars!! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** This is definitely a book that should NOT be spoiled.  In some ways I am completely uncertain how to review this book without spoiling anything, so I guess I will be vague and brief. I absolutely adored this book! This is a book that I stayed up ’til the wee hours of the night to finish.  I seem to remember books that I loose sleep over (and don’t regret it), and this was certainly one of those. Shyann is coming home after being gone for five years.  She is estranged from her father and is going to home to rebuild her bank account and pick […]
