Review: No Way Out by Juno Rushdan (2019)

Final Hour Series, Prequel

Heat Factor: Shower sex after a very dangerous river dunking

Character Chemistry: I was slightly distracted by constant emotional turmoil

Plot: CIA agent doesn’t follow orders, everything that can possibly go sideways does

Overall: It’s the prequel to set up the series, and it does that very well

Review: Twist of Fate by Susan Craig (2019)

Cedar Hill, Book 3

Review of Cedar Hill Book 1; Cedar Hill Book 2

Heat Factor: You can’t really tell sometimes if the heat is from the characters or getting all worked up about DANIEL, THAT STINKER

Character Chemistry: They’re drawn to each other from the start but they are in for a bumpy ride.

Plot: Daniel is deeply messed up because of the trauma his philandering father committed. Tammy is deeply messed up because she was seriously wounded by a disgusting troll of a famous conductor who blacklisted her from her career as a musician. They find each other working in the Veterinarian’s office together in good old Cedar Hill, but if you think this is one of those “they THINK he’s a cad but really he’s got a heart of gold!” you are SO mistaken. It’s going to string you along, friends.

Overall: I was on the edge of my seat with this one the whole time because I did not believe any author could pull this kind of hero off, but duh, Susan Craig wrote it.

Character Chemistry: Him: “I need a woman so my village doesn’t die out. You’ll do.” Her: “Look at those yummy biceps! Did you say something?”

Plot: Druid magic sends Connall to San Francisco, where he places a Craigslist ad for a wife. Ashley answers because her current life suuuucks and ends up in 2nd century Scotland.

Overall: This book is ridiculous and I was utterly tickled.

Review: Under an Alaskan Sky by Jennifer Snow (2020)

Wild River, Book #2

Review of Wild River, Book 1

Heat Factor: Once they hop in the sack, it’s like bunnies

Character Chemistry: I’m not entirely sure that the chemistry is as good if you haven’t read the first book in the series.

Plot: She’s been pining for him for five years. Now that he might be ready to make a move, his daughter’s mother comes back to town.

Overall: I can’t deal with emotional angst when it’s just wrong.
