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: Rash and Rationality by Ellen Mint (2020)

Happily Ever Austen, Book 2

Heat Factor: The sex scenes come late, but I was legit fanning myself.
