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: Worth It All (The McKinney Brothers #3) by Claudia Connor

Review: Worth It All (The McKinney Brothers #3) by Claudia Connor

Karla’s Review  5 Stars!! My goodness did I enjoy this book! This inspiring story delivers a heartfelt message about overcoming adversity and forgiveness. It also depicts the resilience of children and how they view the world and triumph over life’s challenges in a most simplistic manner. Claudia Connor takes chances with her storylines and it’s what draws me to The McKinney Brothers series again and again. While I had an issue with one of her characters in the first book, Worth the Fall, the couple pairing and family dynamic was unique and for the most part I enjoyed the read. Her debut book impressed me enough that I couldn’t wait for […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: A Breach of Promise (The Rules of Engagement #1) by Victoria Vane

Flashback Friday Favorite: A Breach of Promise (The Rules of Engagement #1) by Victoria Vane

Reviews Kristen says: 4.5 Stars! WOW! What an unexpected surprise A Breach of Promise turned out to be! I was captivated, riveted, and charmed by this superbly written short story. I’m in awe of Ms. Vane’s ability to write a novella that is not only historically detailed, engaging, and cleverly contrived, but simultaneously sweeps the reader into a world full of richly developed characters, and terrific, witty dialogue. The cast of characters in this short story were simply amazing for a novella. I can honestly say, I don’t think I’ve read a more charming, delightful, and so full of himself hero! Marcus was such a weasel. I couldn’t help but love the conceited rake. I absolutely […]

Review: Beauty and the Bull Rider (Hotel Rodeo)

Review: Beauty and the Bull Rider (Hotel Rodeo)

  Karla’s Review  4.5 Stars! A great addition to the Hotel Rodeo series! Zac and Delaney proved to be match made in baby makin’ heaven, but they also had wonderful chemistry and you could feel how much they cared for each other. These two started out with a deal, but when all was said and done, they were in it for love. I wasn’t sure how Delaney would fit into this series being she’s Ty’s ex, and whether or not if I would like her. Delaney grew on me and turned out to be such a likable character, someone who was misjudged and proved herself to be very capable and smart. […]

Flashback Friday: Samson’s Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampires #1) by Tina Folsom

Flashback Friday: Samson’s Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampires #1) by Tina Folsom

   Reviews Karla says: 4.5 stars. From the very first hot sentence to the last page, I was hooked! Samson and Delilah (I know *rolls eyes*, just some of the author’s warped subtle humor) have sizzling chemistry. She seems to be the answer to his…ahem….problem. He can’t get IT up and once he meets her…IT doesn’t want to go down. Funny stuff. The connection they have is more than sexual and he has feelings for her that are not normal for a vampire. What a fun journey exploring this unique world, and seeing Samson and Delilah discovering each other on an emotional and intimate level. Some great secondary characters, a bit of […]

Flashback Friday: Closing the Deal (Wicked Warrens #2) by Marie Harte

Flashback Friday: Closing the Deal (Wicked Warrens #2) by Marie Harte

  Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! I really enjoyed this sexy, sweet, quick read about Derrick and Sydney. We met them in Enjoying the Show, the first book in the series,  and I was looking forward to seeing how these two would make a connection. Derrick always gets what he wants and he wants Sydney, but she’s not having it, and so the chase is on! Who better to seek advice from than his mom and brothers. His mom, Barbara, and twin, Dylan, are psychologists, and of course, Gage is now the expert in the love department because he’s already hooked his own girl, Hailey. A very blunt and amusing conversation takes place, as it […]

Review: Until It’s Right by Jamie Howard

Review: Until It’s Right by Jamie Howard

Steffi’s Review Initially, I was wary to start a book by Jamie Howard since I knew that her debut, Until We Break, had a few pet peeves of mine in the story line. The blurb of Until It’s Right sounded so appealing, however, that I decided to give this author a try myself. I am so glad I did. While I will probably never go back and read Until We Break, Until It’s Right made me a new fan of Jamie Howard’s. Haley Mitchell went through a tough break up. With an ex-boyfriend she was expecting to marry, Haley is finally ready to join the dating world again. When she meets Bryce […]

Review: Power Play (Pilot’s Hockey #2) by Sophia Henry

Review: Power Play (Pilot’s Hockey #2) by Sophia Henry

Steffi’s Review Not usually being a fan of YA/NA, I was introduced to the Pilot’s Hockey series because the blurb of book one, Delayed Penalty caught my attention. Not only did I love Auden and Sasha in Delayed Penalty, it made me very curious about Logan. While her characters are young, Sophia Henry gives them a grown up and responsible voice which I really appreciate. Gabriella’s family owns several produce shops and market stalls as well as a recently opened local artisan shop in Detroit. Logan’s family has gotten their produce from the Bertucci’s since he was in diapers and they’ve casually known each other all their lives. When Gabriella’s father has […]

Review: Worth the Fight (MMA Fighter, #1) by Vi Keeland

Review: Worth the Fight (MMA Fighter, #1)  by Vi Keeland

Dorsey’s review  4.5 Fighting Stars!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I’m not normally a “Sports Romance” type of gal but it came highly recommended and I knew I needed to read it! I loved both the hero and the heroine and the complexity of their characters. They both had demons in their past that they were punishing themselves for and believed they were unworthy of any kind of future happiness. Elle is a bright young attorney and is working long hours at a small firm where she interned. She is steadily seeing a fellow attorney, William, who she went to law school with. He is more of a “friends with […]
