Review: Stronger Than Passion by Katherine McIntyre (2022)

Chesapeake Days, Book #2

Review of Chesapeake Days, Book #1

Heat Factor: 🍆🍆🍆

Character Chemistry: Let’s just say that I completely understand the bickering as a love language

Plot: Hudson and Nico hate each other’s guts and own rival restaurants, which makes it really challenging when they have to work together on a food and drinks collab for the hometown summer festival

Overall: If you’re at all interested in a charming small town romance between antagonistically rival restaurateurs who are positively thirsty for each other, look no further

Review: Husband Material by Alexis Hall (2022)

London Calling, Book #2

Review of London Calling, Book #1

Heat Factor: Lots of kissing and even some canoodling, but it quickly fades to black

Character Chemistry: There is honestly nothing better than the ways that Luc and Oliver show they love each other, both with little, everyday things and when they both let all their messes hang out

Plot: To wed or not to wed? That is the question. But it’s not really a question because the real grownups all get wed… Right? RIGHT?!

Overall: There is so much humor and love in this book, and I had such a blast reading it, but I also had to check myself in the later sections as the writing on the wall became more and more clear

Review: All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan (2016)

Devil’s Rock, Book #1

Heat Factor: Their attraction is very physical, and the sex is animalistic (rawr!)

Character Chemistry: They give each other spidey senses, but, like, in a hot-for-you way

Plot: Convict meets nurse volunteering at the prison, rescues her, is released, and much should-they-shouldn’t-they angst ensues

Overall: It fills a specific desire and is written (pretty well) accordingly

Review: Fire Season by K.D. Casey (2022)

Unwritten Rules, Book #2

Review of Unwritten Rules Book #1

Heat Factor: They are very enthusiastic. And enjoy marking.

Character Chemistry: It’s really sweet

Plot: Charlie’s work life is very stable, but he’s getting a divorce, so he’s trying to figure his life out again. Reid’s constantly unsure of where he’ll be playing, and he’s a recovering alcoholic, so he’s taking everything one day at a time

Overall: Ugh, Charlie, squeeze my heart in your enormous hands, why dontcha?

Review: Secret Service by Tal Bauer (2022)

Heat Factor: I might go so far as to say lotsa sex, but it’s not lotsa super explicit sex, but also that first BJ will probably live rent free in my head for a while 

Character Chemistry: Love at first sight + so much angst

Plot: The president and his Secret Service detail lead are in love. Also the president has disappeared. Without his detail lead (in case that wasn’t obvious).

Overall: It’s present-past (roughly) alternating non-linear, so I was thrown for a minute…until I was totally sucked in
