Shifter Bites, Book #1

Heat Factor: It’s closed door (this whole new series is meant to be no sex/closed door)

Character Chemistry: Their shifter personalities flow into their interactions SO WELL

Plot: Hester is getting over a cheating ex when she ends up snowbound with her fated mate

Overall: Adorbs!

Review: You, Me and the Sea by Elizabeth Haynes (2021)

Heat Factor: Think “roaring fire in a simple wood cabin” and you’ll have it

Character Chemistry: It’s like a healthy dose of sexual healing along with some blustery island magic

Plot: Two emotionally immobilized people find themselves on a misty Scottish island filled with birds and combust, and aren’t ever the same again.

Overall: This book just completely blew up my week because it was so incredibly good and I have not been okay since.

Dueling Review: Your Dad Will Do by Katee Robert (2020)

Erin made us buddy read Your Dad Will Do because she likes to make Ingrid uncomfortable. Which means it’s that time again: time for a dueling review!

A Touch of Taboo, Book 1

Let’s start by each giving our metric for rating the book: 

Erin:

Heat Factor: It’s … imaginative

Character Chemistry: Indisputably they have sexual chemistry

Plot: She found her fiance cheating, so she gets back at him by making a move on his dad

Overall: Well it’s definitely hot, but the interpersonal dynamics are…concerning

Holly:

Heat Factor: Yup, it’s sexy. And they like being watched, so the reader-voyeur is helping make it sexier. 

Character Chemistry: I am so glad that they each found another person who shares their kinks! 

Plot: Revenge sex turns to love

Overall: If you like Daddy Kink and Sexy Sex, read this book! It’s well written. If you don’t like those things, then don’t read this book, because the entire plot is sexy sex. 

Ingrid: 

Heat Factor: I mean, it’s pretty much entirely written to BE hot from start to finish

Character Chemistry: They definitely seem like peanut butter and jelly in the bedroom

Plot: She starts out seeking a revenge hookup with her ex-fiance’s dad and ends up in a whole thing

Overall: If you like daddy/kinky/revenge sex this is probably right up your alley.

Review: Love is a Rogue by Lenora Bell (2020)

Wallflowers vs Rogues, Book 1

Heat Factor: The hanky panky scenes are steamy but

Character Chemistry: The romance feels a tad forced and the couple seems kind of ill-fitting so

Plot: When bibliophile Lady Beatrice Bentley inherits a small property, she grudgingly hires the carpenter who lives and works on her brother’s property to complete the work as she struggles to retain it. They don’t seem to have much in common and they certainly don’t live in the same social spheres, but they’re drawn to one another nonetheless.

Overall: It was a lovely read but I did struggle to see how the couple fit together and the “teasing” was a little clumsy

Review: Tools of Engagement by Tessa Bailey (2020)

Hot and Hammered, Book 3

Review of Hot and Hammered, Book 2

Heat Factor: Hot and Hammered is a pretty accurate description

Character Chemistry: Teasing starts mean, eventually becomes good-natured

Plot: When Bethany walks off her job, Wes pulls a Zellweger and follows her. Plus Wes is trying to figure out how to parent his niece. 

Overall: I loved the relationship, but I had qualms about some of the other stuff
