Flashback Friday Favorite: A Breach of Promise (The Rules of Engagement #1) by Victoria Vane

Reviews Kristen says: 4.5 Stars! WOW! What an unexpected surprise A Breach of Promise turned out to be! I was captivated, riveted, and charmed by this superbly written short story. I’m in awe of Ms. Vane’s ability to write a novella that is not only historically detailed, engaging, and cleverly contrived, but simultaneously sweeps the reader into a world full of richly developed characters, and terrific, witty dialogue. The cast of characters in this short story were simply amazing for a novella. I can honestly say, I don’t think I’ve read a more charming, delightful, and so full of himself hero! Marcus was such a weasel. I couldn’t help but love the conceited rake. I absolutely […]

I’m All Ears ~ An Audiobook Review: Sidebarred (The Legal Briefs #3.5) by Emma Chase

I’m All Ears ~ An Audiobook Review: Sidebarred (The Legal Briefs #3.5) by Emma Chase

Karla’s Review 5++ Feel Good Stars! A delightful sweet treat for readers whose hearts were captured by the charming characters in Sustained. This novella brings us up to speed on Jake, Chelsea and their adorable brood of kiddies along with Stanton and Sofia from Overruled, and Brent and Kennedy from Appealed. I was thrilled when I realized that Emma Chase was going to top this amazing series off with another chance for readers to re-visit with all the characters we fell  in love with in the Legal Brief series. The characters remain true to themselves and the author doesn’t drag the plot down with unnecessary angst but instead gives readers an […]

Review: The Story Guy (Lakefield novellas) by Mary Ann Rivers

Review: The Story Guy (Lakefield novellas) by Mary Ann Rivers

Crista says: The Story Guy is a quick and short read that never comes across that way. It is multi-layered, unique, and memorable. Brian Newburgh and Carrie West meet online after Carrie answers a personal add. The add states that Brian is looking for a Wednesday afternoon weekly meeting that will consist of “kissing only”. The add clearly states that this meeting will not result in a relationship or anything further sexual. Kissing only. This is of course a romance novel, so the rules set up in the personal add were meant to be broken:) Although this relationship starts out “playing by the rules”, as the chemistry heats up between Brian […]
