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: An Irresistible Force by Rosanna Leo (2020)

Handymen, Book 2

Review of Handymen, Book 1

Heat Factor: I mean, there are handcuffs in the first few pages.

Character Chemistry: Steamy, steamy, and with a shared trauma that they turn into something really good.

Plot: Bernie’s childhood haven is being sold by her horrible uncle, who is the mentor of TV landscaper Eli Zorn. When the property is selected by Eli’s show to be rehabbed, Bernie handcuffs herself to the house and refuses to leave. Eli needs the rehab for his career; Bernie needs the house for her nonprofit. WHAT WILL HAPPEN??

Overall: This series rocks, and #2 is just as strong as #1.
