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: Let Me (The O’Brien Family Book 2) by Cecy Robson

Review: Isn’t She Lovely (Redemption 0.5) by Lauren Layne

Review: Isn’t She Lovely (Redemption 0.5) by Lauren Layne

karla’s review 5 Stars! A delightfully charming, very enjoyable New Adult romance! One of the best I’ve ever read! Too often for my taste, NA romances are filled with unnecessary drama and angst, and while Isn’t She Lovely has its share of emotional moments, the characters don’t resign themselves to childish behavior and pointless drama. Ethan and Stephanie understand their relationship was borne out of a scheme and ultimately has an end date…or does it? What they don’t expect is for the pretend to feel so real and to fall in love. Ethan was an incredibly sweet guy and a character who I came to adore.  He’s been molded from birth, […]

Review: Power Play (Pilot’s Hockey #2) by Sophia Henry

Review: Power Play (Pilot’s Hockey #2) by Sophia Henry

Steffi’s Review Not usually being a fan of YA/NA, I was introduced to the Pilot’s Hockey series because the blurb of book one, Delayed Penalty caught my attention. Not only did I love Auden and Sasha in Delayed Penalty, it made me very curious about Logan. While her characters are young, Sophia Henry gives them a grown up and responsible voice which I really appreciate. Gabriella’s family owns several produce shops and market stalls as well as a recently opened local artisan shop in Detroit. Logan’s family has gotten their produce from the Bertucci’s since he was in diapers and they’ve casually known each other all their lives. When Gabriella’s father has […]

The End Game by Kate McCarthy

The End Game by Kate McCarthy

What it’s about “Professional athletes are pillars of their respective communities. They are heroes in the eyes of boys and girls and are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that positively represents their community.” The public loves a good scandal. Seeing someone fall from the pinnacle of success makes a great headline. No one knows that better than I do. What started out as a promising career in college football, spiraled into scandal and shame.  But being a hero is easier said than done.
