Review Rewind: Star Crossed (Battered Hearts #2) by Kele Moon

Karla’s Review 5 Spicy Stars!! O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?? He’s in this book, and he’s SCRUMPTIOUS!! I was captivated from beginning to end! My fan nearly blew up!! Yes, it was hot, hot, hot, but Jules and Romeo’s chemistry and the overall story is what made this read such a treat!! Romeo and Juliet you say?! Maybe you’re rolling your eyes and snickering…well don’t because it worked and it worked VERY WELL!! I never once winced over the choice of names and when Romeo uses Jules’ given name…Juliet…YOU WILL MELT!! “I’m not your enemy.” Romeo lifted his gaze to hers and studied her beautiful face under the bright […]

REVIEW: Midnight Unbound (Midnight Breed #14.6) by Lara Adrian

REVIEW: Midnight Unbound (Midnight Breed #14.6) by Lara Adrian

Dorsey’s Review   5 Deadly Gen One Stars!! I was so excited to read that we were getting Scythe’s story! He totally and thoroughly captivated me when we were introduced to him in Midnight Untamed!! Everyone who read that book must have felt the connection between him and the young widow Breedmate Chiara, and her young son Pietro. Scythe is a Gen One Hunter created by Dregos who has a heartbreaking backstory (as all of Dregos Hunters do) and Chiara is a widow in danger because of her deceased mates lies and deceit. When someone out for revenge attacks Chiara in her home, The Order enlists Scythe to keep her safe and find […]

Review Rewind: Chase in Shadow (Johnnies #1) by Amy Lane

Review Rewind: Chase in Shadow (Johnnies #1) by Amy Lane

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! A very powerful and emotional read! I had no idea the journey I was going on when I started this book, but it was one filled with unbelievable highs and lows, amazing characters, and a story that damn near ripped my heart out of my chest. Slowly the layers are peeled back on Chase’s past as his story progresses in the present, and you understand why he has chosen to hide behind the image of being straight. The guilt that this boy carried around for most of his life was unimaginable, and the façade he hid behind because of a tragic childhood, never allowed him to be […]

Flashback Friday: Beg for Mercy (Dead Wrong #1) by Jami Alden

Flashback Friday: Beg for Mercy (Dead Wrong #1) by Jami Alden

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! Excellent romantic suspense/thriller! This had everything I love in this genre of book. A twisted villain committing gruesome murders, nail-biting suspense, an intense romance, and great secondary characters. Nothing sugar-coated here, pretty graphic descriptions of the deeds and the aftermath of the crime. Although the killer was easy to spot, it did not take away from the story. There was still that desperation to solve the murders, and the hopelessness of the situation if it was left unresolved. What I really loved about this book is that although it wrapped up nicely, the circumstances of the crimes had far reaching effects on other characters and some issues […]

Review Rewind: Taking a Shot (Play by Play #3) BY Jaci Burton

Review Rewind: Taking a Shot (Play by Play #3) BY Jaci Burton

Karla’s Review  5 Stars! I absolutely LOVED it!! In my opinion, the best book in the series. I understand that quite a few reviews have expressed their annoyance or dislike for Jenna, but once she explained herself, I was on board with her feelings. I had my issues with her too, but as I continued to read and the big picture presented itself, it made sense and I gave her my sympathy. She never once laid blame on Ty for anything and always reprimanded herself when her actions towards him were unacceptable, unfortunately only in her head. Was it right how she treated him?! No, but then there would have been no drama. […]

Release Day Review: The Stone Warriors: Kato by D.B. Reynolds

Release Day Review: The Stone Warriors: Kato by D.B. Reynolds

Reviews   Dorsey says: 5 Action Packed Sexy Stars! Kato is a millennia old warrior who’s not only very powerful in magic but, also has a powerful presence once he is finally released from his stone prison. When he is freed from his prison by unsuspecting Grace, Kato (along with Grace) embark on a mission to track down and eliminate the dangerous demons Grace unwittingly unleashed while attempting to decode three ancient scrolls. “They’ll never let us in there.” “Yes, they will,” he said with such irritating confidence that she wanted to slug him. Grace is a strong independent woman disguised as a mild-mannered museum employee. She’s fluent in several languages […]

Transfer (The Retrieval Duet #2) by Aly Martinez

Transfer (The Retrieval Duet #2) by Aly Martinez

Crista’s Review 5 stars! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** Please be careful when reading reviews about Transfer.  This second book in the Retrieval Duet must be experienced without knowing much about it to be enjoyed to its fullest. In a nutshell, Transfer is about Clare’s journey away from the darkness of her marriage and the monster with whom she is married into the light of freedom, safety, and love. Ever since watching Julia Roberts in the movie Sleeping With the Enemy, and then watching Julianne Hough in the movie Safe Haven, I have been looking for a book that would give me the same kind of butterflies and edge of my seat suspense that […]

Blood Vow (Black Dagger Legacy, #2) by J.R. Ward

Blood Vow (Black Dagger Legacy, #2)  by J.R. Ward

Dorsey’s Review 5 Black Dagger Loving Stars!! Honestly, I cannot get enough of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, so I am beyond ecstatic for the Black Dagger Legacy series, it feeds my addiction for these vampires!! So it took me awhile to do this review and I’ve decided to break it down into three mini reviews. Axe & Elise: Axe is a commoner, a guy who just wants to survive and make it through the Brotherhood trainee program. He’s had a hard knock’s life, his mother abandoned him and his father for a better life when he was a young boy. His father basically spent the rest of his life waiting for […]

Rock Chick Reawakening (Rock Chick 0.5) by Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick Reawakening (Rock Chick 0.5) by Kristen Ashley

  Dorsey’s Review  5+ Building Castle Stars!!! To say I was excited to hear KA was writing Daisy and Marcus’s story is an understatement, I have wanted their story for a very long time, I was beyond excited!!! I’ve wanted to know how Daisy fell for….no way to avoid it, a criminal…a respected businessman and feared crime boss. Marcus has always been a bit of a mystery, but, we always had the knowledge that he adored Daisy, and Daisy loved and adored him right back, there was absolutely no mistaking his love and devotion to Daisy throughout the RC Series. “I’ll handle you with care. I’ll always handle you with care. […]

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 […]
