REVIEW: LETHAL LIES by Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers, #2)

REVIEW: LETHAL LIES by Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers, #2)

Dorsey’s Review 3.75 Lethal Stars! Rebecca Zanetti’s Blood Brothers series continues with Heath’s story. Blood Brothers is a spinoff series of her Sin Brothers series (a favorite of mine!). You really don’t have to read the Sin Brothers series to enjoy this series, but, I highly recommend reading Deadly Silence, book one in this series before reading Lethal Lies. The brothers are private investigators and possess enhanced skills that give them the upper hand when needed. I completely love the camaraderie between Heath, Ryker, and Denver along with the Gray Brothers (Sin Brothers series) who all have cameos in this series. “Ryker reached into the cooler and withdrew three beer bottles. […]

Review: Lost Rider (Coming Home #1) by Harper Sloan

Review: Lost Rider (Coming Home #1) by Harper Sloan

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! The first romance novel I ever read was written by Diana Palmer and featured one of her typical brooding cowboy heroes.  I’ll always have a fondness for her and her heroes.  When I saw that this book was recommended for fans of Diana Palmer, I jumped at the chance to read and review it. Lost Rider is just the kind of book that I love.  It features a heroine who’s been in love with the hero her entire life.  I love books where the main couple knew one another from the time they were teens.  It also features a wounded cowboy, both physically and emotionally. If you […]

Review: Twist (Dive Bar #2) by Kylie Scott

Review: Twist (Dive Bar #2) by Kylie Scott

Crista’s Review 4 Stars!  It is no secret that I have mad love for this author.  Kylie Scott wrote the Stage Dive series that still remains my favorite rock band series.  When I heard that Kylie Scott was writing a spin-off series to the Stage Dive series, I was quick to read Dirty, which I loved.  Twist is another great read that had me flipping pages as quickly as I could as I binged on this second installment of the Dive Bar Series. Alex Parks has traveled from Seattle to meet her online love interest, a man named Eric.  When she learns that it’s not actually Eric that she’s been developing […]

Review: Every Little Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #2) by Samantha Young

Review: Every Little Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #2) by Samantha Young

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Every Little Thing is the second book in Samantha Young’s Harts Boardwalk series.  This series has a very “small town” feel to it, in that all the character live in the same town of Hartwell, Delaware.  The characters are business owners, friends, and neighbors who all rub elbows with one another on a consistent basis.  I was not a huge fan of the first book in this series, The One Real Thing.  Thankfully, this book was markedly better than it’s predecessor. We met Vaughn Tremaine and Bailey Hartwell in the first book and I could not wait for their story.  They were sworn enemies who you knew […]
