Review: One Small Thing (One Thing #1) by Piper Vaughn & M.J. O’Shea

Review: One Small Thing (One Thing #1) by Piper Vaughn & M.J. O’Shea

Karla’s Review 5 Satisfying Stars! Beautiful, heart-warming LOVE story! The first few pages into this book I thought I was going to read about “Club Kids” and didn’t think the read was for me, but I kept at it and boy am I glad I did. Rue works in a dance club and is a somewhat flamboyant character, but he’s also hard-working, devoted, loving and when life dealt him an unexpected hand he was up to the challenge! Without a moment of hesitation…yes, he wanted his baby! He embraced fatherhood and was an exceptional dad! That in itself made for a beautiful story, but then bring the sheltered, quirky, anxious, owl-eyed Erik […]

Review: Marrying Winterborne (The Ravenels #2) by Lisa Kleypas

Review: Marrying Winterborne (The Ravenels #2) by Lisa Kleypas

Crista’s Review 5 Stars! This is the Lisa Kleypas that I know and love.  When she is writing at the top of her game, no one compares, and I am thrilled to report that Lisa Kleypas is writing at the top of her game!  The best part of the first book in this series, Cold Hearted Rake, was Rhys Winterborne and Lady Helen, so I have been eagerly awaiting their book, Marrying Winterborne! Rhys Winterborne is the quintessential Kleypas hero: a self-made and filthy rich entrepreneur, who lives with shame and doesn’t feel like he will ever be worthy.  Rhys nearly died after a horrible accident in the first book, and […]

Review: The Angels’ Share (The Bourbon Kings #2) by J.R. Ward

Review: The Angels’ Share (The Bourbon Kings #2) by J.R. Ward

Crista’s Review 4.5 Stars!  Aghh!  I am in agony! The only bad part about finishing a book written by J.R. Ward is that you have to wait at least six months before getting another one!  Her books are my addiction and I absolutely love her new Bourbon Kings series. There are certainly similarities between her Black Dagger Brotherhood series and this series.  Both have compelling “families” that engage both your interest as well as your heart.  Ward also has a writing style that reads like watching a soap opera.  Each chapter switches to another storyline and new characters.  She writes this way with The Brotherhood, and she does so with The […]

Review: Devil and the Deep (Deep Six, #2) by Julie Ann Walker

Review: Devil and the Deep (Deep Six, #2) by Julie Ann Walker

Crista’s Review 3 Stars! The Devil and the Deep is the second book in Julie Ann Walker’s Deep Six series which features Navy SEAL heroes.  I didn’t realize this until I was already into the book.  Although it probably would’ve been helpful to have read the first book first, (as that is where Maddy and Bran are first introduced), I was still able to follow along pretty well. What is it about Navy SEAL heroes that get to me every single time???  I was in the mood for a good romantic suspense and Julie Ann Walker is a go-to author for me in this genre.   I thought that this book was […]

Review: One with You (Crossfire #5) by Sylvia Day

Review: One with You (Crossfire #5) by Sylvia Day

Kristen’s Review 2 Stars? 4 Stars? I’M NOT SURE! There were parts of this book that I loved while other parts bored or confused me. I guess I’ll settle for 3 maybe 3 1/2 stars. Overall, I loved this series! I loved every second I spent in Gideon and Eva’s world, especially during the first THREE books. The TRILOGY aspect of this series was phenomenal. I even loved the fourth book, though it brought nothing new to Gideon and Eva’s love story. As for this book? Well, I’m not sure what to think. There were aspects that I absolutely loved (LUCKY, THE PUPPY), other parts that I really enjoyed, and a few […]

Review Rewind: Run from Fear (Dead Wrong #3) by Jami Alden

Review Rewind: Run from Fear (Dead Wrong #3) by Jami Alden

Steffi’s Review 3.5 Stars! Run from Fear is the third and last book in Jami Alden’s very successful romantic suspense trilogy. Beg for Mercy totally blew me away and made me a huge fan of Jami’s writing. We first meet Talia in Beg for Mercy when she withholds crucial information to protect herself and her little sister, Rosario. Maybe she didn’t always make the right decisions but they were understandable. Jack Brooks was the man who cottoned on to her secret and promised to always protect her and Rosie if she’d come forward. Two years later, Run from Fear tells Talia and Jack’s story. Talia has built a new life for herself […]

Review: Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Review: Stuck-Up Suit  by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Dorsey’s Review 4 Sexy Fun Texting Stars!! Graham and Soraya’s story starts with a cell phone on a train. A cell phone that belongs to a pompous, rude, jerk of a guy….albeit a drop-dead gorgeous jerk of a guy, who Soraya has dubbed as “Mr. Big Prick”.  He’s a gorgeous jerk without his phone since Soraya finds it as she’s exiting the train…and now the fun begins. Talk about opposites attracting. Soraya is feisty, fun, and a bit flamboyant. She’s the personal assistant to an advice columnist and hears a lot of sob stories from people who need advice. But rarely does she get to actually give the advice she would love […]

Review: What We Find (Sullivan’s Crossing #1) by Robyn Carr

Review: What We Find (Sullivan’s Crossing #1) by Robyn Carr

Karla’s Review 4 Stars! A nice start to this new series!  This is what I like to refer to as quiet read, not much in the way of a wow factor or too exciting, but a nice way to spend an afternoon with a good book. The story focuses on two people dealing with life-changing events that have affected them both personally and professionally.  They are both taking a break and contemplating what route they should take next. Their paths cross in a surprising place, a campground, and a setting I really enjoyed. The two central characters, Cal and Maggie, were a good fit.  They were both professionals their late 30’s, […]

Review: Damian (Stone Warriors #1) by D.B. Reynolds

Review: Damian (Stone Warriors #1) by D.B. Reynolds

Reviews Dorsey says:  5 Warrior God Stars!!! Damian is the first book in the new Stone Warriors series, a spin-off of D. B. Reynolds’s Vampires in America. We met Nick Katsaros, Cyn’s one-time lover in Raphael, and again when he became an unlikely ally in Deception. This book picks up after Compelled.  As we discovered from the most recent ViA books, Nick is an ancient and powerful sorcerer whose nemesis magically encased his four warrior brothers in stone for centuries. Nick’s quest has been to find and free his brothers and seek revenge on his enemy. I have to admit, I really didn’t think I would like this new series as […]
