Review: Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas (2021)

The Ravenels, Book #7 

(a.k.a. The Wallflowers, The Next Generation, Book #3) 

(a.k.a. The Devil in Winter Epilogues, also Book #3)

Erin’s reviewed the whole Ravenels series: Book #1 | Book #2 | Book #3 | Book #4 | Book #5 | Book #6

Heat Factor: These are some horny Victorians

Character Chemistry: It’s totally insta-love, and it was written lucidly enough that it worked for me

Plot: “We’ll never work because of an unequal match” + “Why is someone trying to murder me?”

Overall: I re-upped my membership in the Bad Decisions Book Club for this one and read it in one sitting. No regrets.

Review: All Fired Up by Jenn Burke (2021)

Ashes & Dust, Book #1

Heat Factor: Dry humping to climax is great, but have you ever tried a “whoops we woke up in the same bed and we’re aroused” hand job?

Character Chemistry: It was sweet

Plot: Someone is sucking the souls out of people with magic, so of course the vampire PI goes undercover to investigate and then ends up metaphysically bound to the soul-sucker

Overall: It took a long time to figure out what the deal was with the love interest, but the mystery and the magical creatures made for a fun read

Review: A Cowboy to Remember by Rebekah Weatherspoon (2020)

Cowboys of California, Book #1

Heat Factor: Definitely not closed door, but I wouldn’t say explicit either

Character Chemistry: I’m going to have to quit reading second chance romance because the “I’m so sexually attracted to you but I really can’t get over my emotional baggage” just does not work for me.

Plot: see above but toss in a healthy dose of amnesia

Overall: I’m not sure emotional maturity is a good fit for a second chance romance

Review: Forget Me Not by Brenda Jackson (2019)

Catalina Cove, Book 2

Heat Factor: She literally orgasms just from kissing. On the mouth. 

Character Chemistry: He’s the love of her life!

Plot: Ashley’s husband died in a car accident three years ago. But then she finds him again when she’s randomly on vacation. EXCEPT! He has amnesia. 

Overall: I could not suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy this book.

Review: The A.I. Who Loved Me by Alyssa Cole (2019)

Heat Factor: Hot A.I. countertop sex

Character Chemistry: He’s programmed to trust her, and she’s got a heart of gold, so it’s kind of inevitable

Plot: Girl meets A.I. next door

Overall: Whaaaaaat
