Review: Missed Connections by Tamara Mataya

Review: Missed Connections by Tamara Mataya Missed Connections Author: Tamara Mataya Reviewer: Nima Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: The premise promised by the title Missed Connections is a fun one.  Two people shared a connection at some point in real life, but failed for any number of reasons to act on it.  Through the imaginary Missed Connections website featured in Mataya’s first installment of her Summer Love series, they can reach out and maybe have a second chance at a love.  Apparently that’s a real thing on Craigslist and several dedicated websites like Blew My Chance and I Saw You.  This is main character Sarah’s guilty pleasure while she searches for a new job...

Review: To Love a Wolf by Paige Tyler

Review: To Love a Wolf by Paige Tyler To Love a Wolf Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: To Love a Wolf is another satisfying installment in the SWAT series.  Gikany and Una have liked Cooper since we met him in the first novel, Hungry Like the Wolf.  We were eager to see him meet his “One” and we were not disappointed, although the mythology took an unexpected turn. Cooper and Everly’s story is a great change of pace from the previous stories.  Shortly after meeting Everly, Cooper rescues her (and a number of other victims) from bank robbers.  However, this is an isolated event, the overarching plot is the...

Review: Every Bride Has Her Day by Lynnette Austin

Review: Every Bride Has Her Day by Lynnette Austin Every Bride Has Her Day Author: Lynnette Austin Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I was a bit hesitant to return to Savannah Georgia with Ms. Austin because I felt the first novel in the Magnolia Bride series was just OK. But Every Bride Has Her Day proved to be a lovely surprise. Every Bride Has Her Day is fun and quirky like Cricket, with just the right touch of sexy and smoldering like Sam. Who knew throwing a Yankee into the south could be so much fun? The chemistry is felt as soon as Cricket bangs on Sam’s front door and is carried out until the...

Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: After the death of his first mate, Eric Silver never wanted to fall in love again. Since returning to the Silver Town pack with his brothers, he’s been content to do whatever needed to be done, work as a park ranger, and keep to himself.

And Eric is surprisingly fine with the fact that his world has just been turned upside down. Being...

Review: Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler

Review: Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler Her Fierce Warrior Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Overall Gikany and Una have liked the X-Ops series, although, the latest offering, Her Fierce Warrior, fell a bit flat for us.  The plight of stopping the evil doctors was gripping, but the romantic storyline between Minka and Angelo was lacking. Over the course of the previous three books, the Department of Covert Operations (DCO) team has been trying to uncover the mole in their organization, find the evil doctors making the hybrids, all while doing their normal jobs.  We liked that this novel touched base with some previous couples, especially Landon and...

Review: You and Only You by Sharon Sala

Review: You and Only You by Sharon Sala You and Only You Author: Sharon Sala Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- You and Only You was originally published as the stand-alone book, Curl Up and Dye, released in February 2014. It appears that Sala is going forward with this as the first book in her new Blessings, Georgia series, named after the small town where her characters call home.  Unfortunately after a weak opening paragraph, the story really doesn’t get much better.  It is filled with clichés, repetition, and caricatures. LilyAnn Bronte lost her high school sweetheart and then lost herself. Everyone around her treats her like a child and this goes on for y-e-a-r-s. In all that time,...

Review: SEAL Wolf In Too Deep by Terry Spear

Review: SEAL Wolf In Too Deep by Terry Spear SEAL Wolf In Too Deep Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Allan Rappaport knows the importance of rules. As part of a close-knit wolf pack, he learned early on the need to keep their kind a secret from humans that would hunt them down and destroy them. Being a Navy SEAL taught him how to get the job done in the face danger and keep his cool under pressure. But, nothing could have prepared him for the beautiful, spirited woman he can’t stop thinking about. Leaving her troubled upbringing behind, Debbie Renaud found happiness and purpose as a diver for the police department in...

Review: The Good, the Bad, and the Vampire by Sara Humphreys

Review: The Good, the Bad, and the Vampire by Sara Humphreys The Good, the Bad, and the Vampire Author: Sara Humphreys Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: The Good, the Bad and the Vampire is the fourth book in the Dead in the City series.  This latest offering is another fun and witty romp in this ever-expanding mythology.  Gikany and Una liked Dakota and Trixie’s journey and we wonder what will happen next in this world. First, we enjoyed the dynamic between Dakota and Trixie.  They are two vampires who appear to be polar opposites, yet are magnetically attracted to each other.  Although Trixie tries to fight her growing attraction to Dakota for her own personal...

Review: In the Company of Wolves by Paige Tyler

Review: In the Company of Wolves by Paige Tyler In the Company of Wolves Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: In the Company of Wolves is the third installment in the action packed and passionate SWAT series.  Overall, Gikany and Una liked Janya and Becker’s story and the continuing evolving mythology. ***Please note that the novels could be read as stand-alone, but they are better if read from the beginning as the mythology builds from book to book.*** Janya and Becker’s romance was fascinating: the story of the officer falling for the thief – but it isn’t quite that simple.  We liked that Janya was a reluctant thief, her story and...

Review: The Best Laid Wedding Plans by Lynnette Austin

Review: The Best Laid Wedding Plans by Lynnette Austin The Best Laid Wedding Plans Author: Lynnette Austin Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: As a girl who grew up in the South and truly loves Savannah, I was really excited to read The Best Laid Wedding Plans. I was excited to be transported back to the sights, smells, and people of my childhood. Unfortunately The Best Laid Wedding Plans dropped the ball. The Best Laid Wedding Plans fell completely flat; I actually felt like I was reading a book placed in the South, but written by someone who had never done more than drive through it or watch a movie about it. The wonderful thing about books...
