Series Review: Forever Eve and After Eve by J.B. Lexington (2020)

Heat Factor:  Very steamy. Extremely steamy. Lots of moments containing steam.

Character Chemistry: We have ourselves here a duet (please say trilogy) of books starting with a lovely dose of fated mates and proceeding right on into “seducing my spouse” so I’d say it’s meant to be and meant to stick.

Plot: We start with Izabel’s marriage to Bo, and a whole fleet of waving red flags. As Izabel struggles to understand what’s going terribly wrong in her marriage, she ends up seeing a hypnotherapist specializing in past life regression therapy. Things go nuts. That’s book one. Then on with the second book and my poor heart…

Overall: This duet was really pretty great–extremely sexy with a really creative execution and likeable characters. I’m including a few trigger warnings for violence against women.

Review: Chronicles of a Dancing Heart Duo by Olivia Boothe

Heat Factor: Lots of peppers (and a tad of pepper spray perhaps?)

Character Chemistry: It overpowers all reason and sanity, I think

Plot: Sara was a promising student at Julliard when her whole life fell apart. Four years later, she sees a tall, wealthy, handsome man and they immediately get tangled up in a super intense, emotionally-explosive relationship with a lot of serious issues and roadblocks to happiness

Overall: This book is going to be like catnip for a VERY niche audience–if you thought Gossip Girl was the best, most romantic show around, this might be for you. If your favorite summer memories of love look like they came straight out of an episode of Jersey Shore, this might be for you. If you’ve ever heard that Sex and the City actually modeled fairly unhealthy female friendships and you thought “huh?”, this might be for you.

Series Review: Vorge Crew 1-4 by Laurann Dohner (2018)

Heat Factor: Quantity varies but it’s always magnificently explicit

Character Chemistry: Super insta

Plot: Humans getting into weird situations (mostly requiring rescue) with a bunch of aliens

Overall: Satisfying sci-fi smut fluff

Series Review: Dream Man Series by Kristen Ashley (2011)

Heat Factor: It’s Kristin Ashley, so…It’s all pretty much a rolling boil

Character Chemistry: So much sassy back-and-forth

Plot: Action, Sass, Action, #RelationshipGoals, ACTION EEK!!!, #RELATIONSHIPGOALS

Overall: I could listen to Kate Russell read these books ALL DAY (and sometimes I do!)

Series Review: Wind Dragons MC by Chantal Fernando (2014)

Heat Factor: There is a great deal of graphic sex, but they all have mostly the same sex so you’ll know if you’re into it after one nibble.

Character Chemistry: She’s my woman. What else is there?

Plot: Bikers manufacture drama by being super duper macho and having beefs with other bikers and people

Overall: Good if you like a little MC romance without going full dark emotional mess
