Review: Moonshadow (Moonshadow #1) by Thea Harrison

Review: Moonshadow (Moonshadow #1) by Thea Harrison

Dorsey’s Review   4 Exciting Wyr Stars!! Thea Harrison’s Moonshadow is an exciting start to the new Elder Races spin off “Moonshadow” series. In Moonshadow we’re introduced Sophie Ross who works with the LAPD as a Witch Consultant and is recovering from being shot while on a case. While recuperating, she is given the opportunity to travel to England to discover information about her childhood with the chance of inheriting a 5-acre estate in England, but there is a catch, so far nobody has been able to enter the manor house because it’s protected by a spell, so she must find a way to get past the spell and get inside the manor […]

Review: Into the Fire (Night Prince #4) by Jeaniene Frost

Review: Into the Fire (Night Prince #4)  by Jeaniene Frost

Dorsey’s Review 3.5 Demons, Witches, and Magic Oh My….. Stars!! I’ve been anxiously awaiting what seems like a very long time for Vlad’s final book!! Sadly, it wasn’t what I had hoped for…..don’t get me wrong, I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it as much as I wanted to. There are some fun moments between Vlad and Layla, but, honestly, Ian kind of stole the show in this one. To me, this read was more like a prequel to Ian’s book rather than a Night Prince Novel. New plot twists, story lines, and changes in current characters were introduced, but, I felt like I was left hanging on a couple of […]

Review: Every Little Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #2) by Samantha Young

Review: Every Little Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #2) by Samantha Young

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Every Little Thing is the second book in Samantha Young’s Harts Boardwalk series.  This series has a very “small town” feel to it, in that all the character live in the same town of Hartwell, Delaware.  The characters are business owners, friends, and neighbors who all rub elbows with one another on a consistent basis.  I was not a huge fan of the first book in this series, The One Real Thing.  Thankfully, this book was markedly better than it’s predecessor. We met Vaughn Tremaine and Bailey Hartwell in the first book and I could not wait for their story.  They were sworn enemies who you knew […]

Review: Hit the Spot (Dirty Deeds #2) by J. Daniels

Review: Hit the Spot (Dirty Deeds #2) by J. Daniels

Crista’s Review 3 ½ Stars! Hit the Spot is a book that I couldn’t wait to read after finishing Four-Letter Word.  The chemistry between Jaime and Tori was so evident in the first book that I couldn’t wait to see it finally play out.  I have found that couples who fight the most sometimes have incredibly explosive chemistry in and out of bed. Unfortunately, I found myself really put off by Jamie and his crude language and aggressive way of relating to Tori.  He came across as very immature, rude, and cocky.  Sometimes those types of heroes really work for me.  If the author is successful in getting them to soften […]

Release Day Review: The Stone Warriors: Kato by D.B. Reynolds

When he is freed from his prison by unsuspecting Grace, Kato (along with Grace) embark on a mission to track down and eliminate the dangerous demons Grace unwittingly unleashed while attempting to decode three ancient scrolls. “They’ll never let us in there.” “Yes, they will,” he said with such irritating confidence that she wanted to slug him.

Review: Four Letter Word (Dirty Deeds #1) by J. Daniels

Review: Four Letter Word (Dirty Deeds #1) by J. Daniels

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Wow!  This book came out of nowhere and surprised the daylights out of me.  Here I thought I was going to reading a quick, steamy, and lighthearted romance, and instead I got THIS.  Four-Letter Word was anything but lighthearted.  This is a romance filled with so much angst that your heart hurts for a great portion of the book. Brian and Sydney have an unlikely romance in the fact that they meet after Sydney accidentally calls the wrong number.  Her intent is to unleash her fury on her best friend’s ex-boyfriend who has just broken her friend’s heart.  She dials the number and when “he” answers, she […]

The Duke (Victorian Rebels #4) by Kerrigan Byrne

The Duke (Victorian Rebels #4) by Kerrigan Byrne

Crista’s Review 4 Stars!  Kerrigan Byrne is an author that I discovered in 2016 and is proof that each new year has the opportunity to present you with a new favorite author.  Her writing is flawless and she is solely responsible for re-igniting my passion for historical romance. The Victorian Rebel series is a dark and somber look at the atrocities of war and the darkness of humanity.  These are somber and heavy books filled with tragedy and horrific circumstance.  However, the love stories are so memorable, poignant, and hopeful that they balance out the darkness. The Duke is the fourth book in the Victorian Rebel series and lives up to […]
