REVIEW: WIRED by Julie Garwood (Buchanan-Renard #13)

Dorsey’s Review 3.5 Stars!! Not one of my favorites of the series, but, I did enjoy it. I loved that we had cameo’s from Noah, Jordan (who is Alli’s close friend), and Alec. FBI Agent Liam Scott (he was first introduced to us in Fast Track) is trying to find out who in the FBI is leaking confidential information via email. Allison Trent is in her senior year at college, beautiful, and a genius at computers and unfortunately hacking, she’s a modern-day cyber Robin Hood and earns money to pay for her education (and support her horrid family) by modeling on the side. Liam enlists her help in solving his case […]

REVIEW: LETHAL LIES by Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers, #2)

REVIEW: LETHAL LIES by Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers, #2)

Dorsey’s Review 3.75 Lethal Stars! Rebecca Zanetti’s Blood Brothers series continues with Heath’s story. Blood Brothers is a spinoff series of her Sin Brothers series (a favorite of mine!). You really don’t have to read the Sin Brothers series to enjoy this series, but, I highly recommend reading Deadly Silence, book one in this series before reading Lethal Lies. The brothers are private investigators and possess enhanced skills that give them the upper hand when needed. I completely love the camaraderie between Heath, Ryker, and Denver along with the Gray Brothers (Sin Brothers series) who all have cameos in this series. “Ryker reached into the cooler and withdrew three beer bottles. […]

I’m All Ears ~ An Audio Book Review: Origin in Death (In Death, #21) by J.D. Robb

I’m All Ears ~ An Audio Book Review: Origin in Death (In Death, #21)  by J.D. Robb

Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! 21 books in and this series it’s still going strong…at least for me! What I love most about this series is the character development. Not only are the crimes imaginative and the police procedures interesting, this one had a strong sci-fi element, and the characters aren’t one-dimensional. Their personalities are getting stronger and they are coming into their own. From the beginning of the series to this book about 18 months passed, and the pace in which the characters are evolving fits the timeline. You can’t change overnight, these things take time and people and events shape us into who we become and that’s what J. D. […]
