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 […]

Flashback Friday: Chill Factor by Sandra Brown

Flashback Friday: Chill Factor by Sandra Brown

Dorsey’s Review  5 Chilling Stars!! Sandra Brown is one of my top “go-to” authors  when I’m in the mood for a great mystery suspense that will keep me guessing and on the edge of my seat. She also manages to add just the right amount of romance to keep the characters connected and the reader enthralled. In the town of Cleary, North Carolina, four women are missing and presumed dead. The town has a serial killer (The Blue Ribbon Killer) on the loose and as the story unfolds, and as usual with a Sandra Brown novel, there are several suspects and a couple of side stories with many twists and turns. Lilly […]

Review Rewind: Hidden Summit (Virgin River #15) by Robyn Carr

Review Rewind: Hidden Summit (Virgin River #15) by Robyn Carr

Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! Loved it! Classic Virgin River and not only do we get a few new fantastic characters we had plenty of our old favorites, most notably…Jack! I really enjoyed the relationship that developed between Connor and Leslie.  They both had similar history with exes and therefore they related to each other very well. Leslie was funny, determined, wicked with a fire extinguisher and had no fear taking matters into her own hands. Connor had it for her bad and he heated up the sheets with her pretty quickly. He was a protective brother, uncle, and I found him to be very humble and oh, so sweet! As always […]

Review: Troublemaker by Linda Howard

Review: Troublemaker by Linda Howard

Dorsey’s Review 2 Disappointing Stars!! I hate that I am so disappointed with a Linda Howard book. When reading the book blurb I was so excited because it sounded like a classic Linda Howard book….I was sorely disappointed. I was expecting a book reminiscent of her “CIA Spies” books. What we got was basically the life of a beloved Labrador in a small West Virginia town. Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs but I don’t want to read a whole book about a dog when I expected a book that was clearly tagged as romantic suspense! It started out strong, the first two chapters we’re introduced to Morgan Yancy, an […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy #1) by Maya Banks

Flashback Friday Favorite: In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy #1) by Maya Banks

Reviews Karla says: 5 Stars! Wonderful! The McCabe brothers have stolen my heart as well as the adorable Crispin. Ewan wanted to marry Mairin for what the union would bring to his clan, and found himself captivated by her charming and determined ways. Her relationship with Crispin, in the way of mother and child, warmed my heart. She challenged Ewan and his brothers at every turn and proved to be as fierce and protective as they were of the ones she loved. This devotion and determination earned her the loyalty and acceptance into the clan. So many breathtaking moments, but when Ewan assures her she is his greatest treasure…*gasp, swoon, faint*…I WANTED […]

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: The Search by Nora Roberts

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: The Search  by Nora Roberts

Karla’s Review 3 Stars! I’m still “SEARCHING” for the excitement! Okay, so the book had some moments, but I really expected more in the way of a thrilling read. I did like the two main characters, Fiona and Simon. Fiona was easy going, funny and a dog trainer extraordinaire! Simon was gruff, demanding, pushy, but it added to his appeal and they played well off of each other. I enjoyed the dog training aspect of the book, I love dogs, but when a book is titled The Search and the underlying plot centers around a serial killer, well, you would think it would be more exciting! Fiona survived a kidnapping, the […]
