Flashback Friday Favorite: In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy #1) by Maya Banks

Flashback Friday Favorite: In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy #1) by Maya Banks

Reviews Karla says: 5 Stars! Wonderful! The McCabe brothers have stolen my heart as well as the adorable Crispin. Ewan wanted to marry Mairin for what the union would bring to his clan, and found himself captivated by her charming and determined ways. Her relationship with Crispin, in the way of mother and child, warmed my heart. She challenged Ewan and his brothers at every turn and proved to be as fierce and protective as they were of the ones she loved. This devotion and determination earned her the loyalty and acceptance into the clan. So many breathtaking moments, but when Ewan assures her she is his greatest treasure…*gasp, swoon, faint*…I WANTED […]

I’m All Ears ~ An Audiobook Review: Sidebarred (The Legal Briefs #3.5) by Emma Chase

I’m All Ears ~ An Audiobook Review: Sidebarred (The Legal Briefs #3.5) by Emma Chase

Karla’s Review 5++ Feel Good Stars! A delightful sweet treat for readers whose hearts were captured by the charming characters in Sustained. This novella brings us up to speed on Jake, Chelsea and their adorable brood of kiddies along with Stanton and Sofia from Overruled, and Brent and Kennedy from Appealed. I was thrilled when I realized that Emma Chase was going to top this amazing series off with another chance for readers to re-visit with all the characters we fell  in love with in the Legal Brief series. The characters remain true to themselves and the author doesn’t drag the plot down with unnecessary angst but instead gives readers an […]

Flashback Friday: My One and Only by Kristan Higgins

Flashback Friday: My One and Only by Kristan Higgins

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! Wonderful! A sweet story about getting it right the second time around. Lots of great characters, especially Harper and Nick. He’s so laid back and willing to let life play itself out and she over-thinks things and acts on a whim. Yet they are perfect for each other. Harper’s feelings were so well written and even though her personality was annoying at times, my heart just broke for her. Nick’s declaration of love just warmed me through and through. You’ll find yourself placing your hand over your heart and breathing out a happy sigh. Loved it! My One and Only is a keeper! A feel good book […]

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: Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan

Review: Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan

Crista’s Review 5 Mind-Blowing Stars! Thought provoking, intense, unbelievably romantic, completely unexpected, and totally unique.

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 […]
