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: Worth the Fight (MMA Fighter, #1) by Vi Keeland

Review: Worth the Fight (MMA Fighter, #1)  by Vi Keeland

Dorsey’s review  4.5 Fighting Stars!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I’m not normally a “Sports Romance” type of gal but it came highly recommended and I knew I needed to read it! I loved both the hero and the heroine and the complexity of their characters. They both had demons in their past that they were punishing themselves for and believed they were unworthy of any kind of future happiness. Elle is a bright young attorney and is working long hours at a small firm where she interned. She is steadily seeing a fellow attorney, William, who she went to law school with. He is more of a “friends with […]

Review: A Reason To Live (Reason #3) by C.P. Smith

Review: A Reason To Live (Reason #3) by C.P. Smith

Dorsey’s Review 5 Stars! CP Smith gives me so many reasons to read!! Shane Sherman…where to begin! He’s passionate, controlling, stubborn, protective, and a thoroughly ALL ALPHA MAN!!! If you’re in trouble, he’s the one that you want protecting you, because if it means him dying to make you safe he’s prepared to meet his maker!!!! Unfortunately, he fails to see all the qualities that make him a good friend, protector, and partner, he sees failure when he looks in the mirror. He remembers that one event in his past that prevents him from seeing the wonderful and honorable man he is. When Sage shows up out of the blue, she […]

Built (Saints of Denver #1) by Jay Crownover

What it’s about Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk, he’s all denim and flannel. Zeb’s wanted the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her. It doesn’t matter how many smooth moves he makes, the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest—either that or she doesn’t return it. Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be […]
