Review: No Way Out by Juno Rushdan (2019)

Final Hour Series, Prequel

Heat Factor: Shower sex after a very dangerous river dunking

Character Chemistry: I was slightly distracted by constant emotional turmoil

Plot: CIA agent doesn’t follow orders, everything that can possibly go sideways does

Overall: It’s the prequel to set up the series, and it does that very well

Review: The Dragon Prince of Alaska by Elva Birch (2020)

Royal Dragons of Alaska, Book #1

Heat Factor: The most G-rated non-closed-door sex I’ve ever read: 100% implied, 0% explicit

Character Chemistry: They unreservedly lean on each other for support, which is really lovely

Plot: Threats to her! Threats to the monarchy! Threats all around!

Overall: This would have been A-level reading if the protagonists weren’t TSTL. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series.
