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 […]

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Crista’s Review 5 Stars!! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** This is definitely a book that should NOT be spoiled.  In some ways I am completely uncertain how to review this book without spoiling anything, so I guess I will be vague and brief. I absolutely adored this book! This is a book that I stayed up ’til the wee hours of the night to finish.  I seem to remember books that I loose sleep over (and don’t regret it), and this was certainly one of those. Shyann is coming home after being gone for five years.  She is estranged from her father and is going to home to rebuild her bank account and pick […]

She’s a sickly and fragile young women whose wealthy, influential, overprotective family keeps a very close eye on her, especially since she’s been at death’s door several times, yet she’s spared each time.

Review: Slow Burn by Pamela Clare (Colorado High Country #2)

Review: Slow Burn by Pamela Clare (Colorado High Country #2)

Crista’s Review 5 Stars! Slow Burn is the second novel in Pamela Clare’s new Colorado High Country series.  I enjoyed the first book, Barely Breathing and gave it 5 stars, but this book is even better!! I enjoyed it more, so if I could, I would give it MORE than 5 stars! This is great writing.  You can tell that Ms. Clare understands Colorado and lives there.  The mountains and the setting come alive in this series, and I have half a mind to move to Colorado just to live near this fictional town and fictional characters! Eric Hawke.  Just his name gives me the chills and his character is even […]
