Series Review: Krish / Before Krish by N.J. Bhogayta

Heat Factor: It’s…extremely steamy.

Character Chemistry: It’s pretty electric and from the start you know they’re going to even though…they probably ought not.

Plot: Nicole is a driven, well-regarded, successful up-and-comer in finance and acquisitions when she’s forced into working for Raphael–one of the biggest players in the industry, kind of a bully, and very very sexy. She’s got major baggage (yikes!), he’s one of those guys everyone warns you about (not a good idea, honey) and it’s crisis after sexy crisis for these two.

Overall: I can’t review the entire plot arc, because I’ve only read books 1 and 2 out of 3–but there’s some major red flags AND some major steam in this series that I’ll happily pick apart for you.

Review: Persephone’s Curse by Sandra Bats (2018)

Persephone’s Curse, Book #1

Heat Factor: It’s pretty steamy—kind of like the warmth emanating from the alleyway trash can fires of this dystopian world

Character Chemistry: There’s certainly a “us against the world” dynamic that is immediate and satisfying

Plot: Elin is the only successful escapee from government run insemination labs created to attempt to evade a fatal virus called Persephone’s Curse. Jayden is an escaped soldier who has successfully created a haven for government outcasts in an old school. Together they try to save their sisters and their newfound family while they navigate a relationship in what is (TW) a pretty cruel world where rape has become a way of life.

Overall: I wish I had DNFed this book because I was really upset when I finished reading it.

The setting is a world almost entirely based around victimizing women, so I would advise those who have difficulty reading about rape and assult to skip this review (and book).

Review: Out of the Dark by Ashlyn Drewek (2020)

Heat Factor: It’s like a medium to slow burn and I dig it

Character Chemistry: Kate and Eric start out running into each other coincidentally and then they’re friends and then they end up in just the most realistic and goal worthy relationship I tell you what

Plot: Eric is a (vampire) detective who ends up intervening when police officer Kate ends up nearly killed in an alley with her partner. Kate ends up on desk duty recovering with Eric and as they race to solve her partner’s murder (and avoid serious vampire shenanigans), they slowly fall deeply in love with each other.

Overall: Dude, this book opens with maggots but it closes with my heart.

Review: Venom by Dee Garcia (2019)

Rosewood Realm, Book 1

Heat Factor: Kinky blood stuff, plus both protagonists bone secondary characters. Plus incest.

Character Chemistry: A rebound situation if there ever was one.

Plot: Captain Hook is a vampire who is obsessed with Tinksley Bell. Tink is in love with Peter Pan. When Peter leaves and Tink is depressed, Hook helps her recover and also embrace her inner darkness. 

Overall: I don’t even know what to tell you.

Review: Lovers Lost by Ashton Abbott (2020)

A Raedan Warrior Novella

Review of Raedan Warrior Series, Book 1

Heat Factor: There’s a lot of steam in this novella.

Character Chemistry: You would think that with these two being separated by a whole consciousness and constant injuries it wouldn’t be this hot but these two could light a glass of water on fire.

Plot: This is a supporting novella that can be standalone, but it does tie into the Raedan Warrior Series and delves into the saving of Vanya from her imprisonment and recovery.

Overall: This is a really well-paced, dark and steamy paranormal novella and I highly recommend reading it as part of the series.
