Review: Dream Chaser by Kristen Ashley (2020)

Dream Team, Book 2

Heat Factor: If you had asked me earlier, I would not have said that being collared is sexy. But I am totally buying what Ashley is selling here.

Character Chemistry: Well, I wanted them together in book 1, so…yeah, they’ve got chemistry

Plot: “I want to be with you.” “Never gonna happen.” “You know what? Fine.” … “Actually, not fine, you just got kidnapped and dragged into a dangerous situation with an ever-increasing body count, and I am not okay with that.”

Overall: Ermagherd, worth the wait!

Review: Claiming Grace by Susan Stoker (2017)

Ace Security, Book #1

Heat Factor: It gets a little explicit

Character Chemistry: I hate them both

Plot: Rescue man saves demoralized, abused woman

Overall: I struggled so hard. But my eyeballs probably got their best ever workout with this book.

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

Review: Refuge by Willa J. Brand (2020)

Heat Factor: Smoulder, smoulder my friends (but behind closed doors)

Character Chemistry: They just kind of systematically click on every level from the first moment.

Plot: Taylor is escaping an abusive marriage with her infant son when her car breaks down in Montana. When she’s rescued and hired by a local rancher, she ends up meeting the rancher’s wife’s brother, Owen, whose steady and secure nature is kind of exactly what she needs.

Overall: This book is SO well done–the worry over Taylor’s precarious and abusive situation, the warmth from the ranchers and the beauty of Montana…it’s really good stuff.

Review: A Cowboy for Keeps by Laura Drake (2020)

Chestnut Creek #3

Heat Factor: It’s not like a bell pepper but I certainly wouldn’t call it a ghost pepper either.

Character Chemistry: It’s a slow dance with some initial foot stomping.

Plot: Lorelei West and Reese St. James learn their respective siblings died in a car accident leaving behind a surprise baby. Together they have to figure out how to navigate both their new responsibility and their budding feelings for one another.

Overall: It’s a classic “poor woman saved by rich guy” type situation with a lot of curveballs.
