REVIEW: Vengeance Aside by Nancy Haviland (Wanted Men #0.5)

REVIEW: Vengeance Aside by Nancy Haviland (Wanted Men #0.5)

Dorsey’s Review 5 “Mr. Murdery” Stars!! Nancy Haviland has once again enthralled me with her powerful writing ability to totally captivate me and suck me into a world that I wish I was part of! Which, as a reader is saying something since I normally avoid the dark gritty world of mafia romance. In Vengeance Aside we meet Lukas and Dale who have an instant connection in this sizzling addition to Nancy Haviland’s Wanted Men series. The chemistry and attraction between Lukas and Dale was off the charts hot. It was instant, palpable, and I was on the edge of my seat with giddy anticipation to see how things would play out between […]

Review Rewind: Rock Chick Regret (Rock Chick #7) by Kristen Ashley

Review Rewind: Rock Chick Regret (Rock Chick #7) by Kristen Ashley

Karla’s Review Hector “Hispanic Hottie-Double H” Chavez, had thick, black, wavy hair, black eyes, long legs, broad shoulders and a lean, amazing body. He was magnetic. 5 Stars! Another hit in the Rock Chick series! I’m on a Hector and Sadie HIGH!! I’ll be honest with you; Hector pissed me off in the beginning when Sadie went into Nightingale Investigations to inquire about hiring them for her protection. He let everyone believe that she was everything they thought she was when he knew better. Hector was aware that Sadie was nothing like her father, even tried to help him when he was undercover and he never opened his mouth to tell them any different. […]

Karla’s Review 5 Spicy Stars!! O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?? He’s in this book, and he’s SCRUMPTIOUS!! I was captivated from beginning to end! My fan nearly blew up!! Yes, it was hot, hot, hot, but Jules and Romeo’s chemistry and the overall story is what made this read such a treat!! Romeo and Juliet you say?!

Review: Lost Rider (Coming Home #1) by Harper Sloan

Review: Lost Rider (Coming Home #1) by Harper Sloan

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! The first romance novel I ever read was written by Diana Palmer and featured one of her typical brooding cowboy heroes.  I’ll always have a fondness for her and her heroes.  When I saw that this book was recommended for fans of Diana Palmer, I jumped at the chance to read and review it. Lost Rider is just the kind of book that I love.  It features a heroine who’s been in love with the hero her entire life.  I love books where the main couple knew one another from the time they were teens.  It also features a wounded cowboy, both physically and emotionally. If you […]

Flashback Friday & Re-Release: With Good Behavior (Conduct #1) by Jennifer Lane

Re-Release reviews of a favorite book with one of my most adored heroes. Get lost in this sweet romance, a great beach read, pool read, couch read…wherever, and for only $0.99, worth every penny!! Karla’s Review -2011 4.5 Stars! With Good Behavior is an extremely well-written engaging book. It has one of the sweetest heroes I’ve ever encountered, Grant Madsen. He’s honorable, charming, emotional, and so sexy. He meets the delightful Sophie while visiting his parole officer. She’s a complete stranger to him and yet he offers her comfort in his arms. He had me at that first hug. As the two of them get to know one another, they tell […]

Review: Madly (New York #2) by Ruthie Knox

Review: Madly (New York #2) by Ruthie Knox

Crista’s Review 3 Stars! Madly by Ruthie Knox is the second book in her New York Trilogy.  Truly was released August 2014 and it was a long time waiting for this installment.  Completely is the third and final book of the series and its release date has been pushed back a few times.  It is scheduled to release in late September 2017.  Ruthie Knox is one of my favorite romance authors and she’s also a very nice person.  After an absence from publishing, she is back, and that is a blessing! Unfortunately, I am sad to say that Madly left something to be desired.  This is the story of Allie Fredericks […]

REVIEW: Spellbinder (Moonshadow #2) by Thea Harrison

REVIEW: Spellbinder (Moonshadow #2) by Thea Harrison

Dorsey’s Review   4.5 Spellbinding Stars!!! I was completely spellbound by Morgan’s story! Although Morgan was a villain in previous books we soon learn appearances can be deceiving and all is not as it seems. Morgan is bound by a spell linking him to the evil Light Fae Queen Isabeau, so that he must obey any and all direct orders she gives him. For hundreds of years he has lived without freedom. With only his hate and desire for revenge keeping him strong and sane. When we first see Morgan in this book he is a very stoic and no longer holds much hope and certainly no happiness, but when an […]

Review: Twist (Dive Bar #2) by Kylie Scott

Review: Twist (Dive Bar #2) by Kylie Scott

Crista’s Review 4 Stars!  It is no secret that I have mad love for this author.  Kylie Scott wrote the Stage Dive series that still remains my favorite rock band series.  When I heard that Kylie Scott was writing a spin-off series to the Stage Dive series, I was quick to read Dirty, which I loved.  Twist is another great read that had me flipping pages as quickly as I could as I binged on this second installment of the Dive Bar Series. Alex Parks has traveled from Seattle to meet her online love interest, a man named Eric.  When she learns that it’s not actually Eric that she’s been developing […]

Review Rewind: Chase in Shadow (Johnnies #1) by Amy Lane

Review Rewind: Chase in Shadow (Johnnies #1) by Amy Lane

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! A very powerful and emotional read! I had no idea the journey I was going on when I started this book, but it was one filled with unbelievable highs and lows, amazing characters, and a story that damn near ripped my heart out of my chest. Slowly the layers are peeled back on Chase’s past as his story progresses in the present, and you understand why he has chosen to hide behind the image of being straight. The guilt that this boy carried around for most of his life was unimaginable, and the façade he hid behind because of a tragic childhood, never allowed him to be […]
