Character Chemistry: It’s love-at-first sight, raring to go type thing
Plot: Molly runs a hair salon and is in the middle of a string of terrible dates when she meets Brenden, the new firefighter in town. But Molly’s having some terrifying incidents with a stalker and it’s getting NUTTY…
Overall: This was a solid debut and I was very happy with the suspense.
Heat Factor: It’s not like a bell pepper but I certainly wouldn’t call it a ghost pepper either.
Character Chemistry: It’s a slow dance with some initial foot stomping.
Plot: Lorelei West and Reese St. James learn their respective siblings died in a car accident leaving behind a surprise baby. Together they have to figure out how to navigate both their new responsibility and their budding feelings for one another.
Overall: It’s a classic “poor woman saved by rich guy” type situation with a lot of curveballs.
Heat Factor: It’s not a crackling fire, it’s a warm glow
Character Chemistry: They start off as mismatched, secretly-attracted friends that grow into something more very slowly.
Plot: The plot here really is the romance and only the romance. Jude and Iris fall in love very beautifully, but if you’re looking for outside forces or exciting context, that isn’t part of this love story.
Overall: This is a very lovely book and I enjoyed it a great deal (even if I longed for more).
