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: Beauty and the Bull Rider (Hotel Rodeo)

Review: Beauty and the Bull Rider (Hotel Rodeo)

  Karla’s Review  4.5 Stars! A great addition to the Hotel Rodeo series! Zac and Delaney proved to be match made in baby makin’ heaven, but they also had wonderful chemistry and you could feel how much they cared for each other. These two started out with a deal, but when all was said and done, they were in it for love. I wasn’t sure how Delaney would fit into this series being she’s Ty’s ex, and whether or not if I would like her. Delaney grew on me and turned out to be such a likable character, someone who was misjudged and proved herself to be very capable and smart. […]

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: Dirty by Kylie Scott

Review: Dirty by Kylie Scott

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! After writing my favorite rock band romance series, The Stage Dive series, I was ecstatic that Kylie Scott had ventured into a spinoff series that involves Vaughn, a secondary character from the Stage Dive series. This series will focus its attention on a community of characters that own and/or work at the Dive Bar, an amazing bar that features live entertainment, tasty food, and incredibly attractive bartenders! Vaughn has come home to sell his deceased parents home. He is weary from all the touring he’s done with Stage Dive and is somewhat rocked after the break-up of his band. He comes home to find a woman in […]

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: Enshrine by Chelle Bliss

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: Enshrine  by Chelle Bliss

Dorsey’s Review  4.5 Emotional Stars!! I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this story, the blurb is pretty vague but I had an inkling, so I wasn’t completely taken by surprise. Enshrine is my first read by Chelle Bliss and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style and the storyline captivated me from the very beginning. It completely sucked me in and my emotions were on a rollercoaster ride. “Things are just that—things. They don’t make us who we are. They make us look better on the outside, even when we’re hollow on the inside. They’re an illusion—the shiny objects that distract us from the really important things.” […]
