REVIEW: WIRED by Julie Garwood (Buchanan-Renard #13)

REVIEW: WIRED by Julie Garwood (Buchanan-Renard #13)

Dorsey’s Review 3.5 Stars!! Not one of my favorites of the series, but, I did enjoy it. I loved that we had cameo’s from Noah, Jordan (who is Alli’s close friend), and Alec.

Allison Trent is in her senior year at college, beautiful, and a genius at computers and unfortunately hacking, she’s a modern-day cyber Robin Hood and earns money to pay for her education (and support her horrid family) by modeling on the side. Liam enlists her help in solving his case […]

REVIEW: LETHAL LIES by Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers, #2)

REVIEW: LETHAL LIES by Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers, #2)

Dorsey’s Review 3.75 Lethal Stars! Rebecca Zanetti’s Blood Brothers series continues with Heath’s story. Blood Brothers is a spinoff series of her Sin Brothers series (a favorite of mine!). You really don’t have to read the Sin Brothers series to enjoy this series, but, I highly recommend reading Deadly Silence, book one in this series before reading Lethal Lies. The brothers are private investigators and possess enhanced skills that give them the upper hand when needed. I completely love the camaraderie between Heath, Ryker, and Denver along with the Gray Brothers (Sin Brothers series) who all have cameos in this series. “Ryker reached into the cooler and withdrew three beer bottles. […]

Flashback Friday: Beg for Mercy (Dead Wrong #1) by Jami Alden

Flashback Friday: Beg for Mercy (Dead Wrong #1) by Jami Alden

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! Excellent romantic suspense/thriller! This had everything I love in this genre of book. A twisted villain committing gruesome murders, nail-biting suspense, an intense romance, and great secondary characters. Nothing sugar-coated here, pretty graphic descriptions of the deeds and the aftermath of the crime. Although the killer was easy to spot, it did not take away from the story. There was still that desperation to solve the murders, and the hopelessness of the situation if it was left unresolved. What I really loved about this book is that although it wrapped up nicely, the circumstances of the crimes had far reaching effects on other characters and some issues […]

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Crista’s Review 5 Stars!! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** This is definitely a book that should NOT be spoiled.  In some ways I am completely uncertain how to review this book without spoiling anything, so I guess I will be vague and brief. I absolutely adored this book! This is a book that I stayed up ’til the wee hours of the night to finish.  I seem to remember books that I loose sleep over (and don’t regret it), and this was certainly one of those. Shyann is coming home after being gone for five years.  She is estranged from her father and is going to home to rebuild her bank account and pick […]
