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.

Review: Wolf’s Instinct: A Day Care for Shifters by Elva Birch (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s not high heat, but it’s certainly sweet.

Character Chemistry: There’s not a ton of tension but it’s certainly an adorable romance.

Plot: Addison is a new resident of small-town Montana and gets a job at a shifter nursery where she meets single-dad Roderick. Roderick is also dealing with the arrival of his daughter’s birth mother, crazy town politics and presumably just being a shifter dad.

Overall: This book was a charming little palate cleanser. Not too tense, not too boring. Just lovely.

Review: Uncharted by Adriana Anders (2021)

Survival Instincts, Book #2

Review of Survival Instincts, Book #1

Heat Factor: → The best way to get warm in the woods is to climb into a sleeping bag naked with another naked person already inside it.

Character Chemistry: I’m kind of stuck on: they’re on a chemical high from running for their lives for days on end. But sure, forever love, absolutely.

Plot: Baddies are still after the mysterious virus. This time Leo, pilot, and Elias, mysterious recluse, are running for their lives (and to save the world?)

Overall: The show-stealer is Amka, the Alaskan wilderness octogenarian lesbian badass.

Review: Weep, Woman, Weep by Maria DeBlassie (2021)

Heat Factor: No sex, some grumpy pining

Character Chemistry: Santos is clearly interested; Mercy is a lot more invested in her relationship with La Llorona

Plot: Mercy was touched by La Llorona as a teenager, and now she’s trying to break free

Overall: I enjoyed this book a lot, but it’s not your standard romance fare
