Series Review: Irresistible by Stella Rhys (2017-2020)

Heat Factor: Spicy hot. Memorably spicy hot. Hot, hot, hot.

Character Chemistry: There might be some couples that are more explosive than others, but they’re all deliciously meant-to-be.

Plot: This is a steamy series that revolves around tangentially related sports stars, agents, and related characters in NYC and LA.

Review: Husband Material by Brenda Jackson (2020)

Heat Factor: It’s hot. There’s lots of booty.

Character Chemistry: This is fully established physically, but (likely due to length) the emotional chemistry is less developed.

Plot: Carmen and her ex, Matthew, end up stuck sharing their beach house for the summer. When both decide to punish the other through seduction, they cave almost instantly and rekindle their relationship.

Overall: It’s not fully fleshed out but there’s flesh out. (See what I did there?)
