Review: This is Not the End by Sidney Bell (2021)

Plot: The third wheel becomes an equal partner.

Overall: This is a beautiful book.

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

Series Review

Review: Chronicles of a Dancing Heart Duo by Olivia Boothe

Heat Factor: Lots of peppers (and a tad of pepper spray perhaps?)

Character Chemistry: It overpowers all reason and sanity, I think

Plot: Sara was a promising student at Julliard when her whole life fell apart. Four years later, she sees a tall, wealthy, handsome man and they immediately get tangled up in a super intense, emotionally-explosive relationship with a lot of serious issues and roadblocks to happiness

Overall: This book is going to be like catnip for a VERY niche audience–if you thought Gossip Girl was the best, most romantic show around, this might be for you. If your favorite summer memories of love look like they came straight out of an episode of Jersey Shore, this might be for you. If you’ve ever heard that Sex and the City actually modeled fairly unhealthy female friendships and you thought “huh?”, this might be for you.

Review: A Royal Disaster by Jennifer Bonds (2020)

Heat Factor: I did a text search and confirm sex but as to quality I cannot say

Character Chemistry: It was good, but I should have been more invested by the time I DNFed in order to make it really click

Plot: He’s the heir with overbearing parents and political problems blah, blah, blah; she’s the clumsy commoner who’s a breath of fresh air but could never really be with him blah, blah, blah

Overall: I was so optimistic about having a fun fake relationship comfort read but I really just cannot deal with this one

Review: Her Pretend Christmas Date by Jackie Lau (2020)

Cider Bar Sisters, Book 2.5

Review of Cider Bar Sisters Book 1, Book 2

Heat Factor: There’s only one (twin) bed!

Character Chemistry: I, like Julie, would very much like to be the one person who gets to see the uptight man with his tie off and his top button unbuttoned. Oh la la!

Plot: Younger sister with irregular job feels like a disappointment to her parents and lies to them about a man with whom she had a terrible date but whom they would love. So she ends up inviting him to Christmas, of course!

Overall: Well now I want to have a romantic ice skating date and a baking competition
