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: Compelled (Vampires in America #10.5) by D.B. Reynolds

Dorsey’s Review 5 Compelling Stars!!! D.B.Reynolds delivers once again in Compelled!! We are treated to an enthralling, fast-paced, entertaining and passionate Vampires in America novella! Two impossibly powerful alphas, who have enough distrust and hatred for one another to cause Cyn headaches are thrown together for a common goal; find the manacles that imprisoned Raphael in Deception, but will the love they share for Cyn be enough to prevent the violence they both want to unleash on one another? “Vampire,” he said by way of greeting. “Sorcerer.” “Human!” she sang out in disgust. -Nick, Raphael, and Cyn  Cyn is called upon to uphold the promise she made to Nick to help […]

Review: The Beast by J.R. Ward

Review: The Beast by J.R. Ward

Reviews Dorsey says: 5 Beautiful Beast Stars!! Rhage, aka “Hollywood” is the most handsome brother who’s cursed with a Beast. His Mary is the immortal human who owns his heart and soul, together they make the most unlikely couple, yet they totally fit. Rhage is very humorous, he always has something funny to say and is very sweet, whereas Mary is very serious. I have to say I didn’t totally fully connect with Mary in Lover Eternal but in The Beast…I totally connected with her and fell in love with them as a couple. They truly convinced me that they completely belong together, they are meant for one another. “You are […]

Flashback Friday: Samson’s Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampires #1) by Tina Folsom

Flashback Friday: Samson’s Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampires #1) by Tina Folsom

   Reviews Karla says: 4.5 stars. From the very first hot sentence to the last page, I was hooked! Samson and Delilah (I know *rolls eyes*, just some of the author’s warped subtle humor) have sizzling chemistry. She seems to be the answer to his…ahem….problem. He can’t get IT up and once he meets her…IT doesn’t want to go down. Funny stuff. The connection they have is more than sexual and he has feelings for her that are not normal for a vampire. What a fun journey exploring this unique world, and seeing Samson and Delilah discovering each other on an emotional and intimate level. Some great secondary characters, a bit of […]

Review: Midnight Marked (Chicagoland Vampires #12) by Chloe Neill

Review: Midnight Marked (Chicagoland Vampires #12) by Chloe Neill

  Karla’s review  5 Stars! Fantastic!  One of the best in the series! I can’t get enough, I am an Ethan and Merit groupie for life!  I started reading this series in 2009 and each time I read a new installment I want to go back and start all over, or at the very least, read my favorites parts, which all involve Ethan and Merit, no matter what they were doing. Even when they weren’t in a solid  relationship there was something special about their moments together that always had me tingling with anticipation of what was to come. Some books have been better than others and at one point or […]
