He had me at that first hug. As the two of them get to know one another, they tell […]

Review: The Coppersmith Farmhouse  (Jamison Valley #1) by Devney Perry

Dorsey’s Review 4.5 Alpha Loving Stars!! I was blown away by this new authors debut book!! It had everything I love to read about, it’s reminiscent of a Kristen Ashley or a C.P.

Review: Twist (Dive Bar #2) by Kylie Scott

Review: Twist (Dive Bar #2) by Kylie Scott

Crista’s Review 4 Stars!  It is no secret that I have mad love for this author.  Kylie Scott wrote the Stage Dive series that still remains my favorite rock band series.  When I heard that Kylie Scott was writing a spin-off series to the Stage Dive series, I was quick to read Dirty, which I loved.  Twist is another great read that had me flipping pages as quickly as I could as I binged on this second installment of the Dive Bar Series. Alex Parks has traveled from Seattle to meet her online love interest, a man named Eric.  When she learns that it’s not actually Eric that she’s been developing […]

REVIEW: Xavier Cold (Hard Knocks #2) by Michelle A. Valentine

REVIEW: Xavier Cold (Hard Knocks #2) by Michelle A. Valentine

Dorsey’s  Review 3 Stars!! I must admit I was a bit disappointed with the continuation of Xavier and Anna’s love story. The overall story was good, just not as great as I was hoping for. This picks up right where Phenomenal X left off, I found the multiple storylines a bit dramatic at times and there were just too many obstacles thrown in X and Anna’s way, along with too much self-doubt for both of them. X’s self-loathing was just plain sad and I missed the over confidentA cocky alpha he was in Phenomenal X! “You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me—my angel—my everything, and I’ll never let you go […]

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. […]

Review: Every Little Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #2) by Samantha Young

Review: Every Little Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #2) by Samantha Young

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Every Little Thing is the second book in Samantha Young’s Harts Boardwalk series.  This series has a very “small town” feel to it, in that all the character live in the same town of Hartwell, Delaware.  The characters are business owners, friends, and neighbors who all rub elbows with one another on a consistent basis.  I was not a huge fan of the first book in this series, The One Real Thing.  Thankfully, this book was markedly better than it’s predecessor. We met Vaughn Tremaine and Bailey Hartwell in the first book and I could not wait for their story.  They were sworn enemies who you knew […]

Review: Hit the Spot (Dirty Deeds #2) by J. Daniels

Review: Hit the Spot (Dirty Deeds #2) by J. Daniels

Crista’s Review 3 ½ Stars! Hit the Spot is a book that I couldn’t wait to read after finishing Four-Letter Word.  The chemistry between Jaime and Tori was so evident in the first book that I couldn’t wait to see it finally play out.  I have found that couples who fight the most sometimes have incredibly explosive chemistry in and out of bed. Unfortunately, I found myself really put off by Jamie and his crude language and aggressive way of relating to Tori.  He came across as very immature, rude, and cocky.  Sometimes those types of heroes really work for me.  If the author is successful in getting them to soften […]
