Suncoast University, Book 3

Review of Suncoast University, Book 1; Book 2

Heat Factor: Nothing like having no privacy to stir up a nice, hot, slow burn

Review: Watch Me by Allie Winters (2019)

Suncoast University, Book #2

Review of Suncoast University, Book 1

Heat Factor: Watch your glasses folks, because this one’s steamy.

Character Chemistry: Drop of a hat, turn on a dime, didn’t know I had a one-track-mind type chemistry
