Review: Summer of Sunshine and Margot by Susan Mallery (2019)

Heat Factor: The two stories are vastly different–one is a slow build, one crashes and burns/rebuilds. 

Character Chemistry: I have a theory that readers will love one more than the other, and that it’s entirely about the reader

Plot: Two sisters rebuild their lives through their very different careers, meeting regularly to cheer one another on. Unsurprisingly, as they work to be their best selves they find their best matches.

Overall: It’s a really sweet duo of love stories–easy to read and enjoyable.

Happily Inc, Book 4

Overall: Sweet but not all that impactful.

Character Chemistry: They **get** each other. It’s very sweet.

Plot: “I am socially awkward, please give me sex lessons.”

Overall: I stayed up well past my bedtime because I couldn’t put it down.

Review: Holding Out for a Hero by Ana Leigh (2009)

The Frasers, Book 5

Heat Factor: Lots of sex off stage, plus a few mildly detailed scenes that we get to see.

Character Chemistry: The first time they meet, he gets a boner and she is rude for no reason.

Plot: A lot, but none of it seems to matter.

Overall: Meh.
