Review: Met Her Match by Jude Deveraux (2019)

Summer Hill, Book 2

Heat Factor: For two people who hold off on hanky panky, this sure got scalding hot.

Character Chemistry: I can’t handle how much I wanted them to get together

Plot: Terri ends up unexpectedly shacking up with Nate, a new resident to her sleepy lake resort town and fiance to the town golden girl. Terri’s a strong, capable woman who has shouldered the weight of her mother’s poor reputation as well as the loss of her mother as a young child. There’s mystery. There’s a sexy friendship a-brewing. There’s humor. It’s wonderful.

Overall: Despite an early on aversion, this book was straight-up satisfying.

Dueling Review: Priest by Sierra Simone (2015)

If Holly were to review this book, she would call it a Recommended Read. If Ingrid were to review this book, she would write a Rant. Clearly, we needed to review this book together.

Welcome to Dueling Reviews.

Moderated by Erin, who has no emotional investment in this book at all.

Ingrid’s Take:

Heat Factor: It’s scorching…which is fitting, because with the stuff these two pulled in a Catholic church they may very well end up somewhere toasty.

Character Chemistry: I don’t dig what they dig…but they dig it, and each other, a LOT.

Plot: Catholic priest ends up attracted to a woman who is apparently irresistible but has no hobbies or interests or personality and they end up finding a new, sexy spiritual path together.

Overall: This book has some majorly interesting dynamics but I had to put it down out of sheer frustration many times (and not the FUN kind of frustration, either).

Holly’s Take:

Heat Factor: Absolutely filthy, in the best way

Character Chemistry: Father Bell would have chemistry with a cardboard box

Plot: Catholic priest has sex, angst ensues

Overall: I had so much fun reading this book

Review: Seduction of a Highland Lass by Maya Banks (2011)

McCabe Trilogy, Book 2

Review of McCabe Trilogy, Book 1

Heat Factor: light-the-bed-on-fire sex all over the place

Character Chemistry: It was probably a combination of the sex and the angst, but it totally worked

Plot: I love you, but I must wed another

Overall: Don’t like the trope, liked the book
