Lucifer (Vampires in America #11) by D.B. Reynolds

Lucifer (Vampires in America #11) by D.B. Reynolds

Dorsey’s Review 5 Vampire-Loving Stars!! D.B. Reynolds does it again!! She is truly a master storyteller. I wish I had even a quarter of her amazing storytelling talent! Once again she has given us a delicious vampire to fall in love with. In Lucifer we actually get two storylines that are interwoven, but this is definitely Lucifer’s book.  However, we all know that something is going on with Lady Sophia and her mate Colin and we finally get answers. Lucifer, like all DBR’s vampires, is gorgeous, witty, charming and has an abundance of charisma, he’s also very passionate and a bit vulnerable at times, but only when it comes to Eleanor. […]

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: Duke of Pleasure (Maiden Lane #11) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Duke of Pleasure (Maiden Lane #11) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Crista’s Review 5 Stars! I wish that Duke of Pleasure could be made into a movie.  The drama, intrigue, romance, and larger than life characters would come alive on the big screen.  I also kept seeing the man on the cover in my mind while I read this novel, and I would love to see him in the flesh!! This can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s better if you’ve been reading the series and are familiar with the characters.  However, I am a reader of this series, and I’m not sure how I could’ve missed that Alf is a GIRL!!  Alf is a beloved character from previous books that […]

Review: Unraveled (Elemental Assassin #15) by Jennifer Estep

Review: Unraveled (Elemental Assassin #15) by Jennifer Estep

Karla’s Review  4.5 Stars! God help me the day this series comes to an end, I’ll have to find a withdrawal program. I can’t imagine not being able to look forward to another installment in this series…I enjoy it that much! What’s the saying…don’t bring a knife to a gunfight…that is unless you’re Gin Blanco because she wields her weapon of choice with pinpoint accuracy! This was another action packed, kickass installment in this ever evolving series! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, when this group of friends and family work collectively to oust the enemy, it makes the story even better. Gin alone is magic, the group at […]

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: Slow Burn by Pamela Clare (Colorado High Country #2)

Review: Slow Burn by Pamela Clare (Colorado High Country #2)

Crista’s Review 5 Stars! Slow Burn is the second novel in Pamela Clare’s new Colorado High Country series.  I enjoyed the first book, Barely Breathing and gave it 5 stars, but this book is even better!! I enjoyed it more, so if I could, I would give it MORE than 5 stars! This is great writing.  You can tell that Ms. Clare understands Colorado and lives there.  The mountains and the setting come alive in this series, and I have half a mind to move to Colorado just to live near this fictional town and fictional characters! Eric Hawke.  Just his name gives me the chills and his character is even […]

Review: The Highlander (Victorian Rebels, #3) by Kerrigan Byrne

Review: The Highlander (Victorian Rebels, #3) by Kerrigan Byrne

Reviews Dorsey says: 4.5 Demon Highlander Stars!! The Highlander is the third book in the Victorian Rebels series and it was just as fantastic as the first two books in the series!! MacKenzie is known as the “Demon Highlander”.

Mena escaped her prison with […]

Review: The One Real Thing ((Hart’s Boardwalk, #1) by Samantha Young

Review: The One Real Thing ((Hart’s Boardwalk, #1) by Samantha Young

Crista’s Review 3 Stars! I honestly can’t believe that I am rating a book written by the talented Samantha Young anything less than 5 stars.  Her, On Dublin Street series, is one of my all-time favorites, and I was thrilled to learn that she was beginning a brand new series called Hart’s Boardwalk. I found myself bored by this book.  The characters just weren’t that compelling or interesting.  Jessica Huntington is a physician who works for a women’s correctional facility.  She comes across love letters written by a former inmate who is now deceased and makes it her mission to deliver the letters to their intended recipient. This mission takes her to […]

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 […]

Review: Once Upon a Moonlit Night (Maiden Lane #10.5) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Once Upon a Moonlit Night (Maiden Lane #10.5) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Oh, how I loved this novella!!  If you are looking for a few laughs, some quick entertainment, and a believable and passionate romance, this novella has all you could hope for and more!! I have been a fan of the Maiden Lane series since the beginning.  I envy those people that have never read the series, because the Maiden Lane series is ten and a half books of pure entertainment.  Of course, some are more memorable than others, but in the hands of Elizabeth Hoyt, you are always guaranteed a good read.  Once Upon a Moonlit Night, although a novella, is no exception to this rule.  I […]
