Flashback Friday & Re-Release: With Good Behavior (Conduct #1) by Jennifer Lane

Re-Release reviews of a favorite book with one of my most adored heroes. Get lost in this sweet romance, a great beach read, pool read, couch read…wherever, and for only $0.99, worth every penny!! Karla’s Review -2011 4.5 Stars! With Good Behavior is an extremely well-written engaging book. It has one of the sweetest heroes I’ve ever encountered, Grant Madsen. He’s honorable, charming, emotional, and so sexy. He meets the delightful Sophie while visiting his parole officer. She’s a complete stranger to him and yet he offers her comfort in his arms. He had me at that first hug. As the two of them get to know one another, they tell […]

Going Deep (Alpha Ops #5) by Anne Calhoun

Going Deep (Alpha Ops #5) by Anne Calhoun

Crista’s Review 2 Stars!  I am sorry, but this one did not work for me. It’s been awhile since I read a book written by this author.  I’m not sure if my preferences have changed, the writing style is different, or if this just wasn’t one of her best works.  Whatever the reason, I struggled to finish this one. First off, I was in the mood for a good romantic suspense novel.  This book just isn’t one.  It’s a contemporary romance at best. This is also a book that reminded me a lot of the movie The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.  In this book, Cady Ward is a […]

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Crista’s Review 5 Stars!! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** This is definitely a book that should NOT be spoiled.  In some ways I am completely uncertain how to review this book without spoiling anything, so I guess I will be vague and brief. I absolutely adored this book! This is a book that I stayed up ’til the wee hours of the night to finish.  I seem to remember books that I loose sleep over (and don’t regret it), and this was certainly one of those. Shyann is coming home after being gone for five years.  She is estranged from her father and is going to home to rebuild her bank account and pick […]

Review: Deadly Silence (Blood Brothers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Deadly Silence (Blood Brothers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti

Dorsey’s Review   4 Fantastic Spin-off Stars!! First off, I’m a huge…HUGE fan of the Sin Brothers series and I’m thrilled to say that it’s not over! Blood Brothers, Rebecca Zanetti’s new series, is a spinoff of the Sin Brothers and introduces a trio of brothers who are trying to survive while looking for answers to their past. Their upbringing is much different than the Dean Brothers but certainly not any better. Ryker and his brothers find the lost. When the law firm that Zara works for hires their services, Zara and Ryker develop a physical relationship, while Ryker keeps his past and secrets close. Ryker and Zara are trying to understand […]

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 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 […]

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: 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 […]
