Review: Stripped by Zoey Castile (2018)

Happy Endings, Book #1

Heat Factor: It’s a sexy one!

Character Chemistry: They’re totally hot for each other. Possibly to the exclusion of good decision making.

Plot: He’s a stripper and she’s a mess, and her best friend is getting married

Overall: It was light and non-rage-inducing, but I probably would have enjoyed it more if Robyn had ever actually grappled with her feelings about Fallon being a stripper

Review: The Master by Kresley Cole (2015)

The Game Maker, Book #2

Review of The Game Maker, Book #1

Heat Factor: They have amazing kinky hate sex energy

Character Chemistry: The “I hate you but I really want to jump you” dynamic is EXCEPTIONAL

Plot: She needs money to stay on the run from her serial killer husband, so she steps in for her friend as a very expensive escort for a night. He is bowled over by her breath of fresh air in his luxurious but monotonous life, but he also thinks everything she says is a lie. So obviously they fall in love.

Overall: Combo of “What did I even just read?” and “That was amazing.”

Review: Not Like the Movies by Kerry Winfrey (2020)

Waiting for Tom Hanks, #2

Review of Waiting for Tom Hanks #1

Heat Factor: There’s nothing. It’s closed door.

Character Chemistry: I think all the chemistry was actually in the first book

Plot: 30-ish woman having a meltdown

Overall: This is kind of like when you’re in your early 20s, listening to your friend constantly talk about the guy she’s obsessed with but refuses to do anything about it.

Review: The Dragon Prince’s Bride by Elva Birch (2021)

Royal Dragons of Alaska, Book #3

Reviews of Royal Dragons of Alaska: Book #1, Book #2

Heat Factor: Not closed door, but not very intense or explicit

Character Chemistry: The way they go through their captivity together is just absolutely charming

Plot: You think it’s going to be an angsty, pining, stealing-the-fiancée kind of a thing, but then they get kidnapped and everything goes sideways

Overall: My favorite so far in this series. SO FUN.

Review: Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh (2006)

Psy-Changeling, Book #1

Heat Factor: They both think they’re having sex dreams about each other, but it’s actually real

Character Chemistry: It’s always fun when the protagonist knows fated mates is a thing but has no idea how that manifests and it takes a while for everyone to figure it out

Plot: She’s trying to avoid being lobotomized because she has feelings, he’s trying to hunt down a serial killer, they’re fated mates

Overall: Nalini Singh is a queen, and I shouldn’t start a 19 book series right now, but I’m hooked
