Review: Don’t Tempt Me (Guthrie Brothers, #1) by Lori Foster

Review: Don’t Tempt Me (Guthrie Brothers, #1)  by Lori Foster

Dorsey’s Review 4.5 Hunky Neighbor Stars!!  I really loved this book, classic Lori Foster!! Where to begin….. Don’t Tempt Me starts when Honor moves into her new fixer-upper house with the help of her BFF, Lexie. Right off the bat her sexy neighbor Jason, his brother Hogan, and his adorable teen nephew Colt start to intrude in her very private, quiet, and busy life, and things get a little bit crazy for her. Now about the Guthrie Brothers (and Colt)….they are very friendly, generous, caring, honest, funny, and super protective. Jason was attracted to Honor right from the start but Honor has a lot of personal stuff to work through. She has […]

Flashback Friday: Falling for Gracie (Los Lobos, #2) by Susan Mallery

Flashback Friday: Falling for Gracie (Los Lobos, #2)  by Susan Mallery

Dorsey’s Review 5 Feel Good Stars!! Fourteen-year-old Gracie Landon falls in love with eighteen-year-old Riley Whitefield, really truly in love. Her antics to discourage him from dating got so out of hand that she made the local small town newspaper which became to be known as “The Gracie Chronicles”. Her mother, in desperation, and in what was supposed to be a temporary solution, shipped Gracie off to live with her aunt and uncle, however, it would be 14 years until she finally returns. Much to Gracie’s dismay, her antics are town lore and NOT forgotten. “She’d been so hopeful that people would forget her.” Gracie is now a successful and popular wedding […]

Review: Storm (Ashes & Embers #1) by Carian Cole

Review: Storm (Ashes & Embers #1) by Carian Cole

Dorsey’s Review 3.5 Rockin’ Stars!! Storm and Evelyn meet during a blizzard when Evelyn loses control of her car and gets stuck in a ditch and Storm saves her. Later they both get stuck and learn a lot about each other during their confinement. Storm is very cocky, yet sweet with a tragic past, he’s very sexy and can pretty much have any woman he wants and he wants Evie, Evie makes him feel like himself. With Evie, he can give up the rock star persona he has to show the world. The only problem is, Evie is in a long-term relationship (12 years) with her live-in boyfriend. She’s at a […]

Review: Dirty English by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review: Dirty English by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Dorsey’s Review 4 Fighting for Love Stars!! WOW!! I really didn’t expect to enjoy this book as much as I did! The book starts out with heartbreaking prologue, and my heart broke for the heroine Elizabeth. Two years later she has picked up the pieces, at least in appearance, and she’s a college student where she meets  the gorgeous Brit, Declan. Declan is a tattooed underground MMA fighter who happens to have just moved into the student housing right next door to Elizabeth along with his funny, charming, loosely straight-laced  twin, Dax. (perhaps he’ll get his own book….fingers crossed!) Declan was just perfect, almost too good to be true, he loves […]

Review: Damian (Stone Warriors #1) by D.B. Reynolds

Review: Damian (Stone Warriors #1) by D.B. Reynolds

Reviews Dorsey says:  5 Warrior God Stars!!! Damian is the first book in the new Stone Warriors series, a spin-off of D. B. Reynolds’s Vampires in America. We met Nick Katsaros, Cyn’s one-time lover in Raphael, and again when he became an unlikely ally in Deception. This book picks up after Compelled.  As we discovered from the most recent ViA books, Nick is an ancient and powerful sorcerer whose nemesis magically encased his four warrior brothers in stone for centuries. Nick’s quest has been to find and free his brothers and seek revenge on his enemy. I have to admit, I really didn’t think I would like this new series as […]

Review: Ultimate Vengeance (Wanted Men #4) by Nancy Haviland

Dorsey’s Review  5 Ultimate Stars!! In Ultimate Vengeance, we’re finally getting the full story behind Alek’s heartbreak. Alekzander (Alek) Tarasov is one unhappy Bratva Underboss! He is heartbroken, miserable and regrets his decision of sending his ex-girlfriend. Sacha, literally running from him, their home, and the life they shared. He made an emotional decision when something horrific happened to a family member….now he wants Sacha back and will stop at nothing to claim his woman. “She was the one woman who could tie him up in f***ing knots and make him enjoy the cramping pain.” I have to say, I love Vassily he has always come across as more of a father to […]
