Review: Ever After Always by Chloe Liese (2021)

Bergman Brothers, Book #3

Review of Bergman Brothers, Book 1

Heat Factor: There’s some pining and petting in the middle and some sex at the end

Plot: Aiden and Freya are having a tough time. But they also really want to fix what’s going on, so they put in the hard work to make their marriage stronger.

Review: Trouble and Strife by Lara Kinsey (2020)

Chances Limited, Book 2

Heat Factor: Lots of foreplay, minimal penetration. Still steamy. 

Character Chemistry: Elizabeth and Sidney treat each other really well and it’s very sweet. 

Plot: For a book called “Trouble and Strife”, this novella was remarkably low-key. There was very little tension or conflict or drama. 

Overall: I inhaled this book and wished it were longer.
