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 […]

Review: Here Comes The Rainne Again (Invertary #6) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Review: Here Comes The Rainne Again (Invertary #6) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Steffi’s Review Since reading her first published book, I’ve been a die-hard Janet Elizabeth Henderson fan. Her stories are written with a unique, quirky and witty voice that guarantees a good time! Here Comes The Rainne Again is almost like a mid-series wrap up – it ties up a lot of lose ends, introduces new characters and lets us revisit with some old favorites. Since the story relies heavily on the plot from previous books, you should at least have read Lingerie Wars (it’s free, so no reason not to get it:)). I’ve been waiting for Rainne and Alastair’s happy ending since the first book in the Invertary series. At that […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Reviews Splage says: 5 Stars! This is the second book I’ve read by Barbara Elsborg and both have been big hits with me. I love that she can write knock-your-socks-off erotica with a meaty story and characters you fall in love with. Caspar is the brooding hero that the whole town hates. He is the son of an Earl, has zero money, zero potential to get a job because of a past tragedy that the town holds him responsible for and he can’t forgive himself for the incident either. He uses women, one night stands only, and he tries to do things to make people hate him even more. But, he’s the […]

Super Bowl Sunday Recommended Read ~ The Baller: A Down and Dirty Football Novel by Vi Keeland

Super Bowl Sunday Recommended Read ~ The Baller: A Down and Dirty Football Novel by Vi Keeland

  What it’s about The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room. It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster. The famed quarterback decided to bare all. And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets. No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera. The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me. When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me. But I don’t date players. And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world […]
