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: Into the Fire (Night Prince #4) by Jeaniene Frost

Review: Into the Fire (Night Prince #4)  by Jeaniene Frost

Dorsey’s Review 3.5 Demons, Witches, and Magic Oh My….. Stars!! I’ve been anxiously awaiting what seems like a very long time for Vlad’s final book!! Sadly, it wasn’t what I had hoped for…..don’t get me wrong, I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it as much as I wanted to. There are some fun moments between Vlad and Layla, but, honestly, Ian kind of stole the show in this one. To me, this read was more like a prequel to Ian’s book rather than a Night Prince Novel. New plot twists, story lines, and changes in current characters were introduced, but, I felt like I was left hanging on a couple of […]

Transfer (The Retrieval Duet #2) by Aly Martinez

Transfer (The Retrieval Duet #2) by Aly Martinez

Crista’s Review 5 stars! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** Please be careful when reading reviews about Transfer.  This second book in the Retrieval Duet must be experienced without knowing much about it to be enjoyed to its fullest. In a nutshell, Transfer is about Clare’s journey away from the darkness of her marriage and the monster with whom she is married into the light of freedom, safety, and love. Ever since watching Julia Roberts in the movie Sleeping With the Enemy, and then watching Julianne Hough in the movie Safe Haven, I have been looking for a book that would give me the same kind of butterflies and edge of my seat suspense that […]

Review: Retrieval (The Retrieval Duet #1) by Aly Martinez

Review: Retrieval (The Retrieval Duet #1)  by Aly Martinez

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! Wow!  This is book 1 of a book “duet”, and let me tell you, I guarantee that after you read this, you’ll be reaching for the next book as quickly as you can!  This first book has a little bit of everything: heartbreak, forgiveness, renewal, and hope. This is the story of a couple who experience a huge tragedy that ultimately leads to their divorce.  It is told in alternating perspectives, which is important as their entire relationship is retold in a series of flashbacks. This book aptly named.  Roman is still completely in love with his ex-wife Elisabeth, and at the first sign of a green […]
