REVIEW: The Time in Between by Kristen Ashley (Magdalene, #3)

REVIEW: The Time in Between by Kristen Ashley (Magdalene, #3)

Dorsey’s Review   3 Second Chance Stars!!! Cady and Coert’s story begins in Denver eighteen years earlier. Their attraction was instant, mutual, and it didn’t take long before they were in love. Cady’s home life was a sad lonely existence; she’s unappreciated and generally ignored unless it’s to tell her what a failure she is, mainly by her cold unfeeling mother and brother…her father just kinda tows the line. Problem is Cady doesn’t want the life her parents expect out of her, she’s content working at a convenience store, while striving to make her dreams of becoming a clothing buyer come true. Cady is a loyal to her childhood friend and […]

REVIEW: Double Trouble (Wallflowers Series #2) by C.P. Smith

REVIEW: Double Trouble (Wallflowers Series #2) by C.P. Smith

Dorsey’s Review 4.5 Fun & Sexy Stars!! This is the second book in C.P. Smith Wallflowers series and if you (like myself) LOVE alpha’s, this is a must read author!! I absolutely love and adore every single character in this series (along with all her other books/series). The Wallflowers are fantastically loyal friends and make you wish you were part of their little trio. This story is so much than a love story, it’s a story of love, friendship, family, and camaraderie. I must say I absolutely love and adore (Calla’s) Aunties, I’m so glad they were included in this book. This is Bo and Sienna’s book, who both have heartbreaking backgrounds […]

Review: The Coppersmith Farmhouse  (Jamison Valley #1) by Devney Perry

Dorsey’s Review 4.5 Alpha Loving Stars!! I was blown away by this new authors debut book!! It had everything I love to read about, it’s reminiscent of a Kristen Ashley or a C.P. Smith book, but, Devney Perry definitely has her own style and voice which was fabulous. I’m so excited to have another author to follow and look forward to!!

After losing her mother and then Ben, she decides to start over and moves from Seattle to the farmhouse for a […]

REVIEW: Xavier Cold (Hard Knocks #2) by Michelle A. Valentine

REVIEW: Xavier Cold (Hard Knocks #2) by Michelle A. Valentine

Dorsey’s  Review 3 Stars!! I must admit I was a bit disappointed with the continuation of Xavier and Anna’s love story. The overall story was good, just not as great as I was hoping for. This picks up right where Phenomenal X left off, I found the multiple storylines a bit dramatic at times and there were just too many obstacles thrown in X and Anna’s way, along with too much self-doubt for both of them. X’s self-loathing was just plain sad and I missed the over confidentA cocky alpha he was in Phenomenal X! “You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me—my angel—my everything, and I’ll never let you go […]

Review Rewind: Taking a Shot (Play by Play #3) BY Jaci Burton

Review Rewind: Taking a Shot (Play by Play #3) BY Jaci Burton

Karla’s Review  5 Stars! I absolutely LOVED it!! In my opinion, the best book in the series. I understand that quite a few reviews have expressed their annoyance or dislike for Jenna, but once she explained herself, I was on board with her feelings. I had my issues with her too, but as I continued to read and the big picture presented itself, it made sense and I gave her my sympathy. She never once laid blame on Ty for anything and always reprimanded herself when her actions towards him were unacceptable, unfortunately only in her head. Was it right how she treated him?! No, but then there would have been no drama. […]

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 […]
