Review: Rough Ride (Chaos #5) by Kristen Ashley

Review: Rough Ride (Chaos #5)  by Kristen Ashley

Dorsey’s Review 4 Intriguing Chaos Stars!! In this fast-paced novella, we get Snapper and Rosalie’s story. You’ll remember Rosalie from early on as Shy’s ex-girlfriend, who he broke up with to be with Tabby. Rosalie has since become an informant for Chaos, thinking she can get her current Bounty MC boyfriend away from Benito Venezuela’s nefarious activities. Now, after a brutal trauma, she’s ready to be done with the MC world, however, the MC world isn’t ready to let her go…..particularly Snapper. Everett “Snapper” Kavanagh and Rosalie Holloway had a pretty fast-paced relationship but it still had the perfect mix of action, drama, and heat. I really enjoyed getting to know these two, […]

REVIEW: THE HOOKUP (Moonlight and Motor Oil Series Book 1) By Kristen Ashley

REVIEW: THE HOOKUP (Moonlight and Motor Oil Series Book 1) By Kristen Ashley

Dorsey’s Review 5 Rainbows and Motor Oil Stars! If you’re dying to read a classic Kristen Ashley book that’s sizzling hot and a hopelessly romantic love story with a touch of drama thrown in for good measure, The Hookup is a must-read! Johnny Gamble *sigh* is a KA signature ALPHA. He’s protective, possessive, and a delicious over-the-top Alpha. I have to say, Johnny Gamble is a worthy addition to my “KA Favorite Hero’s Shelf”. Johnny Gamble is well known in town. After his ex-girlfriend betrayed him three years earlier, he’s been indifferent, distant, and all about business in his hometown of Matlock, KY. The town may think they know his story, but they don’t […]

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: The Time in Between by Kristen Ashley (Magdalene, #3)

REVIEW: The Time in Between by Kristen Ashley (Magdalene, #3)

Dorsey’s Review   3 Second Chance Stars!!! Cady and Coert’s story begins in Denver eighteen years earlier. Their attraction was instant, mutual, and it didn’t take long before they were in love. Cady’s home life was a sad lonely existence; she’s unappreciated and generally ignored unless it’s to tell her what a failure she is, mainly by her cold unfeeling mother and brother…her father just kinda tows the line. Problem is Cady doesn’t want the life her parents expect out of her, she’s content working at a convenience store, while striving to make her dreams of becoming a clothing buyer come true. Cady is a loyal to her childhood friend and […]

Review: Lost Rider (Coming Home #1) by Harper Sloan

Review: Lost Rider (Coming Home #1) by Harper Sloan

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! The first romance novel I ever read was written by Diana Palmer and featured one of her typical brooding cowboy heroes.  I’ll always have a fondness for her and her heroes.  When I saw that this book was recommended for fans of Diana Palmer, I jumped at the chance to read and review it. Lost Rider is just the kind of book that I love.  It features a heroine who’s been in love with the hero her entire life.  I love books where the main couple knew one another from the time they were teens.  It also features a wounded cowboy, both physically and emotionally. If you […]
