Dueling Review, Rant

Dueling Review: Luna and the Lie by Mariana Zapata (2018)

Erin really wanted to rant about this book, but while Ingrid might not enthusiastically recommend it, she isn’t about to agree with Erin that it’s rant-worthy. Clearly, we needed to review this book together. 

Welcome to Dueling Reviews

Moderated by Holly, who had no interest in reading this book but still asked a gazillion questions.

Erin’s Take:

Heat Factor: Not much heat. Mostly yearning.

Character Chemistry: I both like and hate their chemistry at once 

Plot: Luna has a really weird relationship with both of her bosses, but one’s like her dad and the other she has a crush on

Overall: I’ve read this more than once because I really like the idea of it, but every time I get into it I am totally enraged

Ingrid’s Take:

Heat Factor: Zapata starts fires with sticks, really

Character Chemistry: It makes sense. I stand by that.

Plot: Luna spends her life making everyone happy except her boss, Rip

Overall: I mean, it’s a classic Mariana Zapata–so it’s messy, sure. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t satisfying.

Review: A Billion Times No by Kenzie Reed (2019)

Fake It Till You Make It, Book #1

Heat Factor: Sure, I guess 

Character Chemistry: Emotional chemistry? I’m not even convinced they had sexual chemistry.

Plot: Woman goes home for vacation, boss follows, and nobody talks to anybody about anything important so everything hits the fan

Overall: I finished this to satisfy my rage and for no other reason

Southern Gentlemen, Book #1

Heat Factor: Steamy enough

Character Chemistry: “Let me put you on this pedestal.”

Plot: “I’m not the same girl I was ten years ago.”

Review: Daddy Crush by A. Anders (2020)

Heat Factor: I’d imagine it’s everything you’d expect in a sexy version of “virgin learning how to sex” story

Character Chemistry: Woo, boy, do these two want to jump each other’s bones

Plot: Sheltered mid-20-something wants to experience all the sex and romance that her family wouldn’t allow now that she’s independent, but the only man who does it for her is her standoffish silver fox neighbor

Overall: This just scrapes the surface of daddy kink

Review: Hot Ghost by Annika Martin (2019)

Heat Factor: There’s a little bit of ghost on ghost action, but not too much

Character Chemistry: It’s amazing what can happen when one stops being unnecessarily mean to someone and starts listening to them…

Plot: She used to antagonize him for being some dumb ghost who does the same thing every night. Then she also died, and now they’re the only ones who can talk to each other.

Overall: I regret nothing
