Review: Compelled (Vampires in America #10.5) by D.B. Reynolds

Dorsey’s Review 5 Compelling Stars!!! D.B.Reynolds delivers once again in Compelled!! We are treated to an enthralling, fast-paced, entertaining and passionate Vampires in America novella! Two impossibly powerful alphas, who have enough distrust and hatred for one another to cause Cyn headaches are thrown together for a common goal; find the manacles that imprisoned Raphael in Deception, but will the love they share for Cyn be enough to prevent the violence they both want to unleash on one another? “Vampire,” he said by way of greeting. “Sorcerer.” “Human!” she sang out in disgust. -Nick, Raphael, and Cyn  Cyn is called upon to uphold the promise she made to Nick to help […]

Review: The Beast by J.R. Ward

Review: The Beast by J.R. Ward

Reviews Dorsey says: 5 Beautiful Beast Stars!! Rhage, aka “Hollywood” is the most handsome brother who’s cursed with a Beast. His Mary is the immortal human who owns his heart and soul, together they make the most unlikely couple, yet they totally fit. Rhage is very humorous, he always has something funny to say and is very sweet, whereas Mary is very serious. I have to say I didn’t totally fully connect with Mary in Lover Eternal but in The Beast…I totally connected with her and fell in love with them as a couple. They truly convinced me that they completely belong together, they are meant for one another. “You are […]

Review: Firebird by Jennifer Loring

Review: Firebird by Jennifer Loring

Steffi’s Review Jennifer Loring has a new fan! FIREBIRD blew me away with its raw emotion, intensity and the love between two people who simply belong together. Stephanie Hartwell needs a story or she’s going to lose her job as a sports journalist. An interview with the successful, womanizing hockey star Aleksandr Volynsky could be her ticket to a promotion but her boss doesn’t know that Steph and Alex were high school sweethearts until Aleksandr had to return to Russia and Steph stopped all contact. Now, nine years later, Alex and Stephanie meet again and their connection is stronger than ever. But Stephanie is engaged to be married and rekindling her […]

Review: Frisk Me (New York’s Finest, #1) by Lauren Layne

Review: Frisk Me (New York’s Finest, #1)  by Lauren Layne

   Karla’s Review 5 Stars! Great start to this series! I’m in love with Luc and his family! Luc is the pretty boy and baby of the family and due to his recent heroics, he’s become somewhat of a celebrity, not something he’s a fan of. It hasn’t gone to his head, as a matter of fact quite the opposite, he’s angry and annoyed by all the attention. He doesn’t have an ounce of ego, he loves his job and truly believes what he did is all part of being a cop. Ava is the reporter assigned to doing the fluff piece on “America’s Hero”. She crossed paths with Luc years […]

Review: Midnight Marked (Chicagoland Vampires #12) by Chloe Neill

Review: Midnight Marked (Chicagoland Vampires #12) by Chloe Neill

  Karla’s review  5 Stars! Fantastic!  One of the best in the series! I can’t get enough, I am an Ethan and Merit groupie for life!  I started reading this series in 2009 and each time I read a new installment I want to go back and start all over, or at the very least, read my favorites parts, which all involve Ethan and Merit, no matter what they were doing. Even when they weren’t in a solid  relationship there was something special about their moments together that always had me tingling with anticipation of what was to come. Some books have been better than others and at one point or […]

Review: Isn’t She Lovely (Redemption 0.5) by Lauren Layne

Review: Isn’t She Lovely (Redemption 0.5) by Lauren Layne

karla’s review 5 Stars! A delightfully charming, very enjoyable New Adult romance! One of the best I’ve ever read! Too often for my taste, NA romances are filled with unnecessary drama and angst, and while Isn’t She Lovely has its share of emotional moments, the characters don’t resign themselves to childish behavior and pointless drama. Ethan and Stephanie understand their relationship was borne out of a scheme and ultimately has an end date…or does it? What they don’t expect is for the pretend to feel so real and to fall in love. Ethan was an incredibly sweet guy and a character who I came to adore.  He’s been molded from birth, […]

Review: The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

Review: The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

  Steffi’s Review Being a big fan of Mariana Zapata’s writing, I was really excited about the release of The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me, especially since her other sports romance, Kulti, was a big hit with me. The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me certainly didn’t disappoint and it might actually be my new favorite by this author. All Adrian Graves wants to do and focus on is his football career. As one of the best defensive ends in the NFO, he wants to get the most out of the game he loves. That’s where Vanessa comes in. As his assistant, Vanessa takes care of Adrian’s life, from making appintments, running […]
