REVIEW: GIFTS (The Killers #3) By Brynne Asher

REVIEW: GIFTS (The Killers  #3) By Brynne Asher

Dorsey’s Review 5 Killer Stars!! Gifts by Brynne Asher is the third book in The Killer series, and (as of right now) is my absolute favorite so far, although, books one and two are awesome too so that’s saying something! I hadn’t read very many single dad books, but thanks to Brynne Asher I’m going to have to consider this genre. Asa Hollingsworth is just the type of man I love to read about, he’s all ALPHA, hot, bossy, a loving dad, and loyal friend. Keelie is a high school counselor and a single parent who has a ton of worries and responsibilities on her shoulders. She tries her hardest to put […]

Review Rewind: Rock Chick Regret (Rock Chick #7) by Kristen Ashley

Review Rewind: Rock Chick Regret (Rock Chick #7) by Kristen Ashley

Karla’s Review Hector “Hispanic Hottie-Double H” Chavez, had thick, black, wavy hair, black eyes, long legs, broad shoulders and a lean, amazing body. He was magnetic. 5 Stars! Another hit in the Rock Chick series! I’m on a Hector and Sadie HIGH!! I’ll be honest with you; Hector pissed me off in the beginning when Sadie went into Nightingale Investigations to inquire about hiring them for her protection. He let everyone believe that she was everything they thought she was when he knew better. Hector was aware that Sadie was nothing like her father, even tried to help him when he was undercover and he never opened his mouth to tell them any different. […]

REVIEW: RELENTLESS BY D.B. REYNOLDS (VAMPIRES IN AMERICA, BOOK #11.5)

REVIEW: RELENTLESS BY D.B. REYNOLDS (VAMPIRES IN AMERICA, BOOK #11.5)

Dorsey’s Review 5 Vengeance Seeking Stars! This Raphael and Cyn novella is a MUST read!! This novella picks up after the death of Mathilde, when Laurent, a child of Mathilde’s appoints himself as Lord of her territory and seeks revenge against Raphael for her death. The situation with the European vampires is heating up. Naturally, Raphael retaliates and seeks vengeance by taking his fight and his vampires to France to put a stop to Laurent’s reign over Mathilde’s vampires and territory. There was also secondary plot and we’re introduced to Quinn, who was selected and approved by the Council (meaning Raphael) to challenge the current Lord of Ireland to rule the […]

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?!

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 […]
