Review: Lovers Lost by Ashton Abbott (2020)

A Raedan Warrior Novella

Review of Raedan Warrior Series, Book 1

Heat Factor: There’s a lot of steam in this novella.

Character Chemistry: You would think that with these two being separated by a whole consciousness and constant injuries it wouldn’t be this hot but these two could light a glass of water on fire.

Plot: This is a supporting novella that can be standalone, but it does tie into the Raedan Warrior Series and delves into the saving of Vanya from her imprisonment and recovery.

Overall: This is a really well-paced, dark and steamy paranormal novella and I highly recommend reading it as part of the series.

Review: Pursued by the Rake by Mary Lancaster (2020)

Season of Scandal Book #1

Heat Factor: It’s not throbby and there’s no slick flesh but by golly it was satisfying

Character Chemistry: It was seriously the sweetest, most adorable romance and I MELTED

Plot: Lady-in-Waiting is tricked and compromised, and then rescued by hands-down my current favorite hero (this man is like, 50% chill and 50% capable and my heart swelled so much I was concerned for my health)

Overall: After what has felt like a tiny smut slump, this absolutely adorable and totally sexy regency reminded me why I love this stuff in the first place.

Review: By a Thread by Lucy Score (2020)

Heat Factor: It’s on fire to the MAX.

Character Chemistry: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my. Waiting for these two to get it going was like waiting to turn 6 when you’re 5. 

Plot: So. Dominic takes over for his philandering, sexual assault-y lump of a father at his mother’s company. Ally is barely keeping it together trying to take care of her father, who has Alzheimer’s and needs to stay in his very expensive care facility. Dominic gets Ally fired from her job in a pizzeria, and Dominic’s mother hires Ally to work at their very intense fashion house. 

Overall: This book was absolutely mind-bogglingly good.

Review: Secret Crush Seduction by Jayci Lee (2020)

Heirs of Hansol, Book 2.

Review of Heirs of Hansol, Book 1

Heat Factor: Pretty steamy.

Character Chemistry: Since it started in childhood it’s had a long time to build.

Plot: Adelaide is desperate to regain her family’s respect, in no small part because she’s driven to work for the family company. To regain their respect, she ropes her brother’s best friend, Michael, into helping her pull off an event that will put her back on the map. But then…stuff happens.

Overall: This was a steamy, fun read but I definitely think it needs to be read as a series.
