Review: Memento Mori by Jane Morris (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s hot and a bit gritty.

Character Chemistry: It’s very much like the sleeve of cookies in my cupboard at 9:30pm–we know better, we know it’s not going to feel good tonight, and we know we’ll regret it tomorrow, but do we eat the cookies anyway? We do.

Plot: Jane and Gabriel meet at a museum and are instantly and deeply aflame–even though Jane stubbornly leads Gabriel on a teasing chase. Gabriel insists they are lovers who have connected and failed to secure their future together over and over throughout the years, and it’s hard to tell if they’ll manage to end up together this time around.

Overall: This was a DNF for complicated reasons that I will happily elaborate on below.

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

Review: Just Like This by Cole McCade (2020)

Albin Academy, Book 2

Review of Albin Academy, Book 1
