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 […]

Series Spotlight + Giveaway: Wanted Men by Nancy Haviland

Series Spotlight + Giveaway: Wanted Men by Nancy Haviland

Why I love the Wanted Men series Hey everyone, Dorsey here and I wanted to tell you a little bit about why I find the Wanted Men series so appealing. I first discovered Nancy Haviland’s Wanted Men series when I request an ARC of her debut book A Love of Vengeance. I don’t do dark/gritty reads, I normally stay away from Mafia and MC books but the description intrigued me enough to request a copy, and I am so happy I did!! The books in the Wanted Men series are NOT just about sex, violence, torture, abuse, and cruelty, there’s an allusion to some of those things happening but it’s not […]

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 […]

Quickie Review: The Purest Hook by Scarlett Cole

Quickie Review: The Purest Hook by Scarlett Cole

Steffi’s Review Can this series get any better? It just has! The Second Circle Tattoos series is a definite binge read. After reading the first two books back to back, I was beyond excited for Pixie and Dred’ story. We always knew that Pix’s past would play a major role in her book but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t overshadow the romance since Dred also has a troubled past and more than complicated life. A relationship between the two takes work and effort but their attraction is so strong, they always find their way back to each other. I absolutely loved Dred’s band mates and am ecstatic that there […]

Review: The Player (The Game Maker #3) by Kresley Cole

Review: The Player (The Game Maker #3) by Kresley Cole

Dorsey’s Review 3 Tortured Hero Stars!! Dmitri Sevastyan is the youngest Sevastyan brother, he survived a horrid childhood and is now extremely wealthy, very handsome and very, very troubled. Having recently been reunited with his older brothers, he has decided to take a break from business and visit Vegas along with his brothers and their beloved wives (loved catching up with them!!). Victoria is from a long line of grifters (con artists). She is very much involved in her family’s business and she considers herself a ‘confidence artist’, but her last few targets didn’t pan out. With her father in a trouble after a con gone wrong, the whole family is […]

Quickie Review: Deep Dark by Laura Griffin

Quickie Review: Deep Dark by Laura Griffin

Steffi’s Review Laura Griffin undeniably has a gift for writing the most intricate, detailed and gripping romantic suspense. As a die-hard fan of the genre, I always look for books that surprise, engage and stay with me for a long time. Every Laura Griffin book I have read does just that, and Deep Dark is another fantastic example. Reed and Laney are a fantastic couple but I loved returning to the Delphi Center even more. While it is not necessary to read the previous books at all to enjoy this one (all of them can stand alone, in my opinion), I highly recommend the entire series simply because it is excellent. […]

Review: Heart-Shaped Hack (Kate and Ian #1) by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Review: Heart-Shaped Hack (Kate and Ian #1) by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Karla’s Review 4 Stars! Unique plot concept and a different kind of hero! I won’t lie, I had my doubts about whether or not this book was going to hold my attention, but this author knows how to run with a different story-line. Most readers know Tracey Garvis-Graves for her brilliant debut book, On the Island, and when I first started that book I had much the same feelings about the plot. Lo and behold it’s become one of my all-time favorite reads. While Heart-Shaped Hack didn’t quite wow me as much as On the Island did, it set itself apart from the typical contemporary romance and made for a memorable […]

Flashback Friday: Chill Factor by Sandra Brown

Flashback Friday: Chill Factor by Sandra Brown

Dorsey’s Review  5 Chilling Stars!! Sandra Brown is one of my top “go-to” authors  when I’m in the mood for a great mystery suspense that will keep me guessing and on the edge of my seat. She also manages to add just the right amount of romance to keep the characters connected and the reader enthralled. In the town of Cleary, North Carolina, four women are missing and presumed dead. The town has a serial killer (The Blue Ribbon Killer) on the loose and as the story unfolds, and as usual with a Sandra Brown novel, there are several suspects and a couple of side stories with many twists and turns. Lilly […]

Review Rewind: Hidden Summit (Virgin River #15) by Robyn Carr

Review Rewind: Hidden Summit (Virgin River #15) by Robyn Carr

Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! Loved it! Classic Virgin River and not only do we get a few new fantastic characters we had plenty of our old favorites, most notably…Jack! I really enjoyed the relationship that developed between Connor and Leslie.  They both had similar history with exes and therefore they related to each other very well. Leslie was funny, determined, wicked with a fire extinguisher and had no fear taking matters into her own hands. Connor had it for her bad and he heated up the sheets with her pretty quickly. He was a protective brother, uncle, and I found him to be very humble and oh, so sweet! As always […]
