REVIEW: WIRED by Julie Garwood (Buchanan-Renard #13)

REVIEW: WIRED by Julie Garwood (Buchanan-Renard #13)

Dorsey’s Review 3.5 Stars!! Not one of my favorites of the series, but, I did enjoy it. I loved that we had cameo’s from Noah, Jordan (who is Alli’s close friend), and Alec. FBI Agent Liam Scott (he was first introduced to us in Fast Track) is trying to find out who in the FBI is leaking confidential information via email. Allison Trent is in her senior year at college, beautiful, and a genius at computers and unfortunately hacking, she’s a modern-day cyber Robin Hood and earns money to pay for her education (and support her horrid family) by modeling on the side. Liam enlists her help in solving his case […]

REVIEW: RELENTLESS BY D.B. REYNOLDS (VAMPIRES IN AMERICA, BOOK #11.5)

Dorsey’s Review 5 Vengeance Seeking Stars! This Raphael and Cyn novella is a MUST read!! This novella picks up after the death of Mathilde, when Laurent, a child of Mathilde’s appoints himself as Lord of her territory and seeks revenge against Raphael for her death. The situation with the European vampires is heating up. Naturally, Raphael retaliates and seeks vengeance by taking his fight and his vampires to France to put a stop to Laurent’s reign over Mathilde’s vampires and territory.

REVIEW: LETHAL LIES by Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers, #2)

REVIEW: LETHAL LIES by Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers, #2)

Dorsey’s Review 3.75 Lethal Stars! Rebecca Zanetti’s Blood Brothers series continues with Heath’s story. Blood Brothers is a spinoff series of her Sin Brothers series (a favorite of mine!). You really don’t have to read the Sin Brothers series to enjoy this series, but, I highly recommend reading Deadly Silence, book one in this series before reading Lethal Lies. The brothers are private investigators and possess enhanced skills that give them the upper hand when needed. I completely love the camaraderie between Heath, Ryker, and Denver along with the Gray Brothers (Sin Brothers series) who all have cameos in this series. “Ryker reached into the cooler and withdrew three beer bottles. […]

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: THE CHOSEN by J.R. Ward (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #15)

REVIEW: THE CHOSEN by J.R. Ward (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #15)

Dorsey’s Review *** WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS!!*** 3.5 Deceitful Chosen Stars!! Sooooo…..I’m going to break this down by storylines (and there are many) as I did with the last couple of books. Layla and Xcor I was waiting what seems like forever for their story, whether you like them or not, or you just wanted to be done with them, we waited a loooooong time!! Xcor, admittedly was not good guy, we find out that he suffered as a young boy, teen, and young adult and then throw in the Blood Letter finding and claiming him as his son, those experiences hardened him, and I have to say as much […]

REVIEW: Double Trouble (Wallflowers Series #2) by C.P. Smith

REVIEW: Double Trouble (Wallflowers Series #2) by C.P. Smith

Dorsey’s Review 4.5 Fun & Sexy Stars!! This is the second book in C.P. Smith Wallflowers series and if you (like myself) LOVE alpha’s, this is a must read author!! I absolutely love and adore every single character in this series (along with all her other books/series). The Wallflowers are fantastically loyal friends and make you wish you were part of their little trio. This story is so much than a love story, it’s a story of love, friendship, family, and camaraderie. I must say I absolutely love and adore (Calla’s) Aunties, I’m so glad they were included in this book. This is Bo and Sienna’s book, who both have heartbreaking backgrounds […]
