Review: Sting by Sandra Brown

Review: Sting by Sandra Brown

Dorsey’s Review  4 Stars!! Sandra Brown is one of my favorite romantic suspense writers, her novels keep me on the edge, her characters are intriguing, mysterious, and some are just plain sinister. This story centers around Jordan “Jordie” Bennet, her brother Josh Bennet, and her brother’s troubles with his employer who is determined to stop Josh from testifying against him on his multiple fraudulent schemes and all of the missing money. In order to avoid prison, Josh is working the with the FBI. Naturally, his employer has sent two men to kill him, Mickey Bolden and Shaw Kinnard. Shaw sees Jordie and next thing you know he takes Jordie with the hopes of […]

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. […]

Series Spotlight + Giveaway: Wanted Men by Nancy Haviland

Series Spotlight + Giveaway: Wanted Men by Nancy Haviland

Why I love the Wanted Men series Hey everyone, Dorsey here and I wanted to tell you a little bit about why I find the Wanted Men series so appealing. I first discovered Nancy Haviland’s Wanted Men series when I request an ARC of her debut book A Love of Vengeance. I don’t do dark/gritty reads, I normally stay away from Mafia and MC books but the description intrigued me enough to request a copy, and I am so happy I did!! The books in the Wanted Men series are NOT just about sex, violence, torture, abuse, and cruelty, there’s an allusion to some of those things happening but it’s not […]

Quickie Review: The Purest Hook by Scarlett Cole

Quickie Review: The Purest Hook by Scarlett Cole

Steffi’s Review Can this series get any better? It just has! The Second Circle Tattoos series is a definite binge read. After reading the first two books back to back, I was beyond excited for Pixie and Dred’ story. We always knew that Pix’s past would play a major role in her book but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t overshadow the romance since Dred also has a troubled past and more than complicated life. A relationship between the two takes work and effort but their attraction is so strong, they always find their way back to each other. I absolutely loved Dred’s band mates and am ecstatic that there […]

Quickie Review: Deep Dark by Laura Griffin

Quickie Review: Deep Dark by Laura Griffin

Steffi’s Review Laura Griffin undeniably has a gift for writing the most intricate, detailed and gripping romantic suspense. As a die-hard fan of the genre, I always look for books that surprise, engage and stay with me for a long time. Every Laura Griffin book I have read does just that, and Deep Dark is another fantastic example. Reed and Laney are a fantastic couple but I loved returning to the Delphi Center even more. While it is not necessary to read the previous books at all to enjoy this one (all of them can stand alone, in my opinion), I highly recommend the entire series simply because it is excellent. […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: On Thin Ice (Ice #6) by Anne Stuart

Flashback Friday Favorite: On Thin Ice (Ice #6) by Anne Stuart

Reviews Crista says: 5 Stars! Why on earth does this author have the ability to leave me with a silly grin on my face while I replay countless scenes from the book in my head, which inadvertently prohibits me from moving on to my next book? I guess with this question, all roads lead to Rome, which is obviously this author’s unique, awesome, and unparalleled talent. On Thin Ice was an unexpected gift as I thought that Fire And Ice was the final chapter in the ICE series. Now instead of being grateful and satisfied, I find myself hoping that she will “surprise” me once more with another…and then another….and then […]

Review: Lake of Dreams by Linda Howard

Review: Lake of Dreams by Linda Howard

Reviews Dorsey says: 3 Stars! This is a reissue of an older Linda Howard story, which I realized after the first few pages of reading. I read this a few years ago in the Everlasting Love, an anthology book. I’m a HUGE fan of Linda Howard’s romantic suspense books and while I enjoyed this one, I didn’t love it. Thea Marlow is having sensual dreams of a mysterious man, they are actually haunting her dreams. The dreams are very real and can bring her ecstasy or fear. As the dreams progress, she attempts to escape the dreams by going to her family’s lake cabin. Her peaceful getaway is broken when she […]
