Review of Region Two, Book #1

Heat Factor: There’s some sex at the beginning, and then a really long dry spell

Character Chemistry: Their relationship is going through a lot, so their chemistry comes and goes

Plot: Uh. Let’s destroy the HEA from Book 1.

Overall: The first half of this book went some seriously unexpected places, which made for a very unusual romance reading experience.

Review: Unwritten Rules by K.D. Casey (2021)

Heat Factor: I mean, it is technically explicit sex, but it’s done in a vignette style until nearly the end, when it feels much more traditionally written

Character Chemistry: I had big feels, but it was because of Zach’s journey, not because of Zach and Eugenio together

Plot: Baseball players fall in love, but one refuses to come out and things fall apart. Until they get a second chance.

Overall: Y’all. I have just been on a whole emotional roller coaster.
