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

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

Reviews   Dorsey says: 5 Action Packed Sexy Stars! Kato is a millennia old warrior who’s not only very powerful in magic but, also has a powerful presence once he is finally released from his stone prison. 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. Grace is a strong independent woman disguised as a mild-mannered museum employee. She’s fluent in several languages […]

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 […]

One Hot December by Tiffany Reisz

One Hot December by Tiffany Reisz

Crista’s Review 3 Stars! This is probably just a matter of personal preference and taste, but I liked this book the least of all the Men at Work holiday reads. The Halloween book and the Thanksgiving book were sweet and romantic reads.  One Hot December is actually much more in line with the Tiffany Reisz that I came to know while reading the Original Sinners series.  It is raunchy, tough, and definitely more sexually explicit.  I guess for me personally, I like more of a feel-good, romantic Christmas story and this book was anything but that. Veronica “Flash” Redding was one tough female lead.  A welder by trade, I just couldn’t […]

Blood Vow (Black Dagger Legacy, #2) by J.R. Ward

Blood Vow (Black Dagger Legacy, #2)  by J.R. Ward

Dorsey’s Review 5 Black Dagger Loving Stars!! Honestly, I cannot get enough of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, so I am beyond ecstatic for the Black Dagger Legacy series, it feeds my addiction for these vampires!! So it took me awhile to do this review and I’ve decided to break it down into three mini reviews. Axe & Elise: Axe is a commoner, a guy who just wants to survive and make it through the Brotherhood trainee program. He’s had a hard knock’s life, his mother abandoned him and his father for a better life when he was a young boy. His father basically spent the rest of his life waiting for […]

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. […]
