The Readers’ Favorite organization provides a very credible and professional service for readers and authors by conducting reviews of books.  You can find them on the web at

For 2013 we submitted two books for award consideration and in the past we have also received reviews outside the competitive process.

One of the books entered was AFTER MIDNIGHT, book #1 in the Denver After Dark Suspense series and it won 3rd place!

Here’s is the review and the book can be found on Amazon at and for the Nook on Barnes & Noble at

Book Review
Readers\' Favorite Book Contest Award WinnerReviewed by Samantha Rivera for Readers’ FavoriteSo what do two cops, two actors and a reporter have to do with each other? Absolutely everything. In this fast-paced crime drama (with plenty of romance thrown in) you’ll find all five and they will definitely surprise you with their antics. The story of a struggling actress desperate to make it no matter what and a cop who gives his all for the job has many strange twists you wouldn’t see coming. Not only that but the action is enough to keep you turning pages for as long as it takes you to finish the book.I really liked the way the author was able to make the characters come alive. With so much happening throughout the book the author still managed to make each character have their own personality and their own thoughts. The lead-ins from one point-of-view to the other were very smooth so that it was easy to understand who was talking and who was thinking what at any given time. I thought that Kate and Sam definitely made a great impression and they were very relatable characters. In this story not everyone is who you thought they were and they do not fall into the stereotypes either. Each character is distinctly different from what probably popped into your mind when I rattled off the career paths. In fact, the bad guy is someone you would never suspect. But of course I don’t want to give too much away. Suffice it to say that I’m definitely interested in reading the next book in this series.
