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 […]

Review: Rock Wedding (Rock Kiss, #4) by Nalini Singh

Review: Rock Wedding (Rock Kiss, #4) by Nalini Singh

Kristen’s Review 4 Solid Stars!! What a wonderful ending to an enjoyable series. To be honest, I was surprised how much I truly enjoyed this book. I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t fully connect with this particular love story considering how ambivalent I have been toward Abe’s character throughout the series. I shouldn’t have worried. There is a reason Nalini Singh is my favorite author. She just knows how to write my type of romance. This story not only offered a heartbreaking but sweet second chance at romance storyline between Abe and his ex-wife Sarah, but it also gave page time to the other couples in the series. That aspect […]

Review: Addicted to You (Addicted, #1) by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Review: Addicted to You (Addicted, #1) by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Crista’s Review 4 Disturbing Stars! Addiction. Codependency. Dysfunction. Wealth. These are the words that come to mind when thinking about the relationship between Loren Hale and Lily Calloway.  The Ritchie sisters take a no-holds-bar look at the high cost of codependency in a relationship and the devastating impact that addiction takes on peoples’ lives. Loren Hale is a raging alcoholic.  Raised by a critical and condescending father who withheld his love, Loren now spends his days trying to forget it all in the “comfort” of the bottle.  His family believes that his drinking problem was simply part of growing up and that his drunkenness is in the past.  Lily Calloway makes […]

Review: Dirty English by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review: Dirty English by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Dorsey’s Review 4 Fighting for Love Stars!! WOW!! I really didn’t expect to enjoy this book as much as I did! The book starts out with heartbreaking prologue, and my heart broke for the heroine Elizabeth. Two years later she has picked up the pieces, at least in appearance, and she’s a college student where she meets  the gorgeous Brit, Declan. Declan is a tattooed underground MMA fighter who happens to have just moved into the student housing right next door to Elizabeth along with his funny, charming, loosely straight-laced  twin, Dax. (perhaps he’ll get his own book….fingers crossed!) Declan was just perfect, almost too good to be true, he loves […]

Review: What We Find (Sullivan’s Crossing #1) by Robyn Carr

Review: What We Find (Sullivan’s Crossing #1) by Robyn Carr

Karla’s Review 4 Stars! A nice start to this new series!  This is what I like to refer to as quiet read, not much in the way of a wow factor or too exciting, but a nice way to spend an afternoon with a good book. The story focuses on two people dealing with life-changing events that have affected them both personally and professionally.  They are both taking a break and contemplating what route they should take next. Their paths cross in a surprising place, a campground, and a setting I really enjoyed. The two central characters, Cal and Maggie, were a good fit.  They were both professionals their late 30’s, […]

Quickie Review: Interference (Pilot’s Hockey, #3) by Sophia Henry

Quickie Review: Interference (Pilot’s Hockey, #3) by Sophia Henry

Steffi’s Review The third book in the Pilots Hockey series tells the long awaited story of Jason Taylor. I was very excited for Jason’s story since finding out a bit more about him in Power Play as he is Landon’s brother. While it is beneficial to read the first two books in the series, Interference can be read as a stand alone. I knew I was going to like Jason but didn’t expect to fall in love with Linden and her family so much. She is a fantastic heroine for this story and a great fit for Jason. Linden had to overcome many obstacles, raising her son with only the help of […]
