Going Deep (Alpha Ops #5) by Anne Calhoun

Going Deep (Alpha Ops #5) by Anne Calhoun

Crista’s Review 2 Stars!  I am sorry, but this one did not work for me. It’s been awhile since I read a book written by this author.  I’m not sure if my preferences have changed, the writing style is different, or if this just wasn’t one of her best works.  Whatever the reason, I struggled to finish this one. First off, I was in the mood for a good romantic suspense novel.  This book just isn’t one.  It’s a contemporary romance at best. This is also a book that reminded me a lot of the movie The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.  In this book, Cady Ward is a […]

Review: Duke of Pleasure (Maiden Lane #11) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Duke of Pleasure (Maiden Lane #11) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Crista’s Review 5 Stars! I wish that Duke of Pleasure could be made into a movie.  The drama, intrigue, romance, and larger than life characters would come alive on the big screen.  I also kept seeing the man on the cover in my mind while I read this novel, and I would love to see him in the flesh!! This can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s better if you’ve been reading the series and are familiar with the characters.  However, I am a reader of this series, and I’m not sure how I could’ve missed that Alf is a GIRL!!  Alf is a beloved character from previous books that […]

Review: Unraveled (Elemental Assassin #15) by Jennifer Estep

Karla’s Review  4.5 Stars! God help me the day this series comes to an end, I’ll have to find a withdrawal program. I can’t imagine not being able to look forward to another installment in this series…I enjoy it that much! What’s the saying…don’t bring a knife to a gunfight…that is unless you’re Gin Blanco because she wields her weapon of choice with pinpoint accuracy! This was another action packed, kickass installment in this ever evolving series! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, when this group of friends and family work collectively to oust the enemy, it makes the story even better. Gin alone is magic, the group at […]

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Crista’s Review 5 Stars!! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** This is definitely a book that should NOT be spoiled.  In some ways I am completely uncertain how to review this book without spoiling anything, so I guess I will be vague and brief. I absolutely adored this book! This is a book that I stayed up ’til the wee hours of the night to finish.  I seem to remember books that I loose sleep over (and don’t regret it), and this was certainly one of those. Shyann is coming home after being gone for five years.  She is estranged from her father and is going to home to rebuild her bank account and pick […]

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

Karla’s Review  4.5 Stars!! This was on its way to being a 5 plus star read…until the end because there really wasn’t one, or at least not one that satisfied me. I only detracted a half a star, because the rest of the book is amazing. I enjoyed the comparisons and stereotypes of two completely different families. Samantha is a sweet, determined young woman who is showcased like an object by her mother and at the same time sheltered. After many years of observing the family next door, she finally meets Jase, the third oldest in the Garrett clan. He approaches her as she’s sitting on the roof ledge by her […]
