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

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.” […]

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 […]

Flashback Friday: Closing the Deal (Wicked Warrens #2) by Marie Harte

Flashback Friday: Closing the Deal (Wicked Warrens #2) by Marie Harte

  Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! I really enjoyed this sexy, sweet, quick read about Derrick and Sydney. We met them in Enjoying the Show, the first book in the series,  and I was looking forward to seeing how these two would make a connection. Derrick always gets what he wants and he wants Sydney, but she’s not having it, and so the chase is on! Who better to seek advice from than his mom and brothers. His mom, Barbara, and twin, Dylan, are psychologists, and of course, Gage is now the expert in the love department because he’s already hooked his own girl, Hailey. A very blunt and amusing conversation takes place, as it […]

Review: Until It’s Right by Jamie Howard

Review: Until It’s Right by Jamie Howard

Steffi’s Review Initially, I was wary to start a book by Jamie Howard since I knew that her debut, Until We Break, had a few pet peeves of mine in the story line. The blurb of Until It’s Right sounded so appealing, however, that I decided to give this author a try myself. I am so glad I did. While I will probably never go back and read Until We Break, Until It’s Right made me a new fan of Jamie Howard’s. Haley Mitchell went through a tough break up. With an ex-boyfriend she was expecting to marry, Haley is finally ready to join the dating world again. When she meets Bryce […]

Review: A Better Man (Sunshine Creek Vineyard #1) by Candis Terry

Review: A Better Man (Sunshine Creek Vineyard #1) by Candis Terry

Steffi’s Review While A Better Man is my first book by Candis Terry and I didn’t know what to expect, I was immediately drawn in by the beautiful cover. A great suspenseful contemporary romance, I enjoyed spending time with the Kincade family but our hero, Jordan, didn’t click with me. After a tragic accident that kills Jordan’s parents, the hockey player returns home to his large family. After being absent for so long and only thinking about his career, Jordan has a lot to make up for, especially with his teenage sister, Nikki. Lucy is not only Nikki’s teacher, the one whose class she is failing, she is also the shy, […]

Review: Here Comes The Rainne Again (Invertary #6) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Review: Here Comes The Rainne Again (Invertary #6) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Steffi’s Review Since reading her first published book, I’ve been a die-hard Janet Elizabeth Henderson fan. Her stories are written with a unique, quirky and witty voice that guarantees a good time! Here Comes The Rainne Again is almost like a mid-series wrap up – it ties up a lot of lose ends, introduces new characters and lets us revisit with some old favorites. Since the story relies heavily on the plot from previous books, you should at least have read Lingerie Wars (it’s free, so no reason not to get it:)). I’ve been waiting for Rainne and Alastair’s happy ending since the first book in the Invertary series. At that […]
