Review: Devoted to Pleasure by Shayla Black

Reviewed by Jaimie

Devoted to Pleasure is the first full-length book in the Devoted Lovers series by Shayla Black and it was fantastic! I was so upset when the Wicked Lovers series ended but this spin off allows us to see glimpses of the people we loved from the earlier books. Cutter and Shealyn are a great couple and their story was full of everything I love in a romantic suspense. This one also set up a story that I am really looking forward to!

Cutter Bryant is one of those genuinely good guys. He always tries to do the right thing – even if that means marrying a girl he considers his “sister” because she is pregnant and unmarried. He is sent out on a big assignment to protect a famous actress. Expecting this job to be a quick in and out, Cutter has no idea what he’s in for. [Read more…]

DNF Review: Catch a Killer by Kris Rafferty

Reviewed by Debz

This book was set up to be everything I loved. A serial killer doing his thing and killing all the people, a brazen female law enforcement agent who has made it her life’s mission to catch him and, in between, a slow simmering love story.

But ALAS, I was disappointed. This book was honestly so flat and boring to me. I could not connect with any of the characters and I was not invested in the story. Not even the bombing and almost death of the main characters could shake off the absolute drudgery of the book.

Let’s start from the beginning. Hannah Cambridge is an FBI special agent trying to get her life back together after the death of her partner and lover Jack Benton. Hannah is not just distraught and despondent; she is also pregnant and afraid for her life because her partner was killed my a notorious crime lord hell bent to killing her as well. [Read more…]

Review: Devoted to Wicked by Shayla Black

Reviewed by Jaimie

Devoted to Wicked is the first book in Shayla Black’s Devoted Lovers series. For fans of her Wicked Lovers series, this one is a spin off and we get peeks at some of our favorites from that series. This is a short novella but it is a bit confusing because it takes place after the events in the next book in the series. I actually read them out of order so it was good for me, but don’t be confused when you read the next one!

Karis Weston is Jolie’s sister (the heroine in the final book in the Devoted Lovers series Holding on Tighter). She takes a vacation to Mexico with her friend for a little rest and relaxation and her trip is not smooth sailing. When someone breaks in to her hotel room and steals her passport, money, jewelry, etc., she calls home asking for someone to come and help her. With Jolie pregnant and busy with her business, Cutter sends his brother to help her out. What he doesn’t know is that Cage is the last person Karis wants to see. [Read more…]

Review: The Devil’s Daughter by Katee Robert

Reviewed by Sara

I’m a big fan of Katee Robert and her sexy romances, but I wasn’t so sure about The Devil’s Daughter when I saw its release. Published in 2017, it’s the first book of tmhe Hidden Sins series of novels and while it’s listed as a romance, it’s more of a romantic suspense or romantic ystery. While there is a romance between between Sheriff Zach Owens and FBI agent Eden Collins, it’s not the main element of the story. Needless to say, I am super happy that I gave this book a try.

After a career in the Marines, Zach Owens is happy with his life in quiet, small town Clear Springs, Montana, even if he does have a cult residing inside his jurisdiction. This all changes when girls start disappearing and then showing up dead. To make matters worse, the estranged daughter of the Elysia cult’s leader shows up to let him know there’s a leak on his force and that she has inside information on his case. Eden Collins doesn’t want to be back in Clear Springs, and she wants to be near her mother and the Elysia cult even less, but she’s dedicated her life to shutting down violent cults with the FBI, and the information she received from an unnamed source leads her to believe that something horrible is happening in Clear Springs.

Review: Twisted Truths by Rebecca Zanetti

Reviewed by Jaimie

I am SO sad to be writing the final review for the Blood Brothers series by Rebecca Zanetti. This one and the Sin Brothers series, which are related, are two of my all-time favorite series and the final installment was bittersweet. Twisted Truths gave us Denver’s story and I could tell from the way he was hitting the bottle in the two previous books to forget Noni that his was going to be great. It did not disappoint!

Noni, a business owner who makes lotions and creams, is in a desperate situation. Her niece has been kidnapped and Noni is frantically trying to rescue her from her gangster father. The man likely killed her sister and Noni was named as the baby’s guardian. For now it is just her and her two aunts chasing dangerous criminals around the country but she knows she’s in over her head. Swallowing her pride, she posts all over the internet looking for the man who broke her heart the year before. Unfortunately for Noni, by plastering pictures of herself and Denver, she has welcomed Denver’s enemies to come after her as well. [Read more…]

Review: Dark Justice: Hunt by Jenna Ryan

Reviewed by Jaimie

I love a good romantic suspense book and I’m always on the look-out for new authors. Dark Justice: Hunt is the second book in the Dark Justice series by Jenna Ryan, and this one kept me reading from the start! I had not read any of Ms. Ryan’s books before and I didn’t start at the beginning of the series. I definitely plan to go back and read the first one but I was still able to enjoy this one.

Dr. Melia Rose thought she had it all – great career, perfect marriage – she really couldn’t have asked for more. Until one night saw her life go up in flames. She’s not even sure what happened, but she blames herself for the end of her marriage. She spends three years jumping from city to city trying to avoid her pain but settles back in her home town. Dr. Rose takes over the local GP practice and wants to focus on getting back to “normal”. And just when she starts to get in a groove, an associate of her ex-husband shows up and blows her comfortable lie to hell. [Read more…]

Review: Collision Point by Lora Leigh

Reviewed by Jaimie

Collision Point is the first book in the Brute Force series by the amazing Lora Leigh and I cannot tell you how excited I was to read this one. This series is a spinoff of sorts from the Elite Ops series and the first book features Nathan/Noah’s brother Rory. I was reallllly hoping we would get his story, but when I realized the series was over I figured that wasn’t going to happen. Luckily I was wrong!

Riordan Malone, or Rory as his family calls him, is now a member of the Brute Force Agency. When we last saw him he was running the garage alongside his sister-in-law, but now that his it has been revealed that his brother isn’t actually dead, Rory needs to branch out. Given a job as a bodyguard, he finds himself quickly involved with the young woman he is protecting. While he’s out of town, she is kidnapped and beaten severely. Rory is gravely injured during the rescue. Six months later, the woman he can’t get out of his mind is on his doorstep. [Read more…]

Review: Nauti Angel by Lora Leigh

Reviewed by Jaimie

I don’t know if I’m just overly emotional or what but Lora Leigh had me crying throughout Nauti Angel, the latest installment of her Nauti Girls series. We got a very brief glimpse of the heartache that was going to play out at the end of Nauti Seductress when Angel revealed that she was actually Chaya’s daughter who everyone thought had died at the age of three. It was a long wait but well worth it. Angel is one badass, wounded woman and I instantly loved her. [Read more…]

Review: Take To The Limit By Dawn Ryder

Reviewed by Jaimie

Take To The Limit is the fourth book in the Unbroken Heroes series by Dawn Ryder and once I started it I finished it in one shot. It wasn’t just Bram and Jaelyn that drew me in, we got to see more of their teammates, we got to visit with the couples from the earlier books, and I loved Jaelyn’s grandpa and sister too.

Bram Magnus is a hardcore military man, who has worked with Saxon and his team on a few occasions. When he isn’t officially offered a spot on their team he is set to head to Afghanistan for a six-month deployment. The day before he leaves, he goes to see his quasi-girlfriend LeeAnn but instead he finds her with another guy. He’s not even upset because, in reality, he knew she wasn’t the one. Her sister, on the other hand, is a totally different matter… [Read more…]

Review: Deep Into Trouble by Dawn Ryder

Reviewed by Jaimie

Deep Into Trouble is the third book in the Unbroken Heroes series by Dawn Ryder and this one grabs you from the get-go! Saxon and Ginger were a bit of an odd couple with one being spunky and fun and the other being serious and straight-laced. They worked in so many ways and you couldn’t help but cheer for them!

Ginger Boyce is a librarian who is dying to break out of her shell and live a little. While attending a conference in New Orleans she takes a walk on the wild side, with disastrous results. After witnessing a murder committed by a dangerous and elusive killer, Ginger is in desperate need of protection. Thankfully for her, Saxon’s team is tracking the same man. [Read more…]
