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 […]

Review Rewind: Firelight (Darkest London #1) by Kristen Callihan

Review Rewind: Firelight (Darkest London #1) by Kristen Callihan

Steffi’s Review 4.5 Stars!  Firelight enthralled me; it gripped me tight and wouldn’t let me go. The mystery and magic and sensuality of this book are so fascinating and kept me reading long into the night. We meet the lead characters, Miranda and Archer, for the first time in 1878. Directly, we know that Miranda is not an average girl just waiting for the right suitor to knock on her door. She is a strong-willed, talented and beautiful young woman who can very well take care of herself. Three years later, Miranda is forced to marry a man she has never met before, or so she thinks. It turns out that Archer […]

Review: Her Forbidden Hero (The Hero #1) by Laura Kaye

Review: Her Forbidden Hero (The Hero #1) by Laura Kaye

Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! Oh my, what a sweet, emotional read. Laura Kaye does the tortured hero so well, and Marco fits the bill to a “t”!! He’s angry, confused, and the last thing he needs is more drama in his life, but that’s exactly what he gets when Alyssa walks into the bar where he works looking for a job. She is his best friend’s little sister, he looked out for her when she was younger and this is the last place he expects to see her. He’s not happy and boy does he let her know it! So much for happy reunions! Alyssa adores Marco and is in love with […]

Review: Heart-Shaped Hack (Kate and Ian #1) by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Review: Heart-Shaped Hack (Kate and Ian #1) by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Karla’s Review 4 Stars! Unique plot concept and a different kind of hero! I won’t lie, I had my doubts about whether or not this book was going to hold my attention, but this author knows how to run with a different story-line. Most readers know Tracey Garvis-Graves for her brilliant debut book, On the Island, and when I first started that book I had much the same feelings about the plot. Lo and behold it’s become one of my all-time favorite reads. While Heart-Shaped Hack didn’t quite wow me as much as On the Island did, it set itself apart from the typical contemporary romance and made for a memorable […]
