Review: Deal with the Devil by Kit Rocha (2020)

Mercenary Librarians, Book #1

Heat Factor: They’re both modified humans, so they can only have super-strength sex with each other. And they do.

Character Chemistry: The fact that you could kill me without breaking a sweat is pretty hot, but I don’t trust you at all…….Dang it, I’m starting to genuinely like you. 

Plot: (Dystopian futuristic landscape) Cross, double-cross, rescue (Loads of fighting)

Overall: Adventure boner for sure.

Review: Letters and Lies by Colleen L Donnelly (2020)

Heat Factor: It’s not ‘hot’, but don’t let it deter you.

Character Chemistry: You hope she’ll fall for the hero but there’s so much else going on it’s not a sole focus.

Plot: Louise Archer gets jilted by her unseen suitor at the last possible moment by telegram and decides to hop on the train as planned anyway so she can convince him to change his mind. But when she lies to a US Marshal and ends up in a dismal little town in desperate need of saving, Louise can’t help but jump right in… 

Overall: This is not a steamy, relationship-driven romance but it’s darn good and it sticks with you.

Review: A Royal Second Chance Summer by Viv Royce (2020)

Little Shops on Heart Street, Book #3

Heat Factor: It’s warm

Character Chemistry: They both seem more interested in themselves than in each other, honestly

Plot: Prince goes looking for priceless lost heirloom in the United States and ends up in a small-town antique dealer’s shop looking for help. Small-town shop owner agrees to help but has her own secrets.

Overall: I just couldn’t buy into this one–the characters seemed to kind of bump along and I never believed they’d really be happy in the end.

Plot: After being catfished, Samiah decides to prioritize working only on her non-romantic life goals. Meanwhile, Daniel is on an undercover assignment to crack a case for the Treasury Department.

Overall: Solid and satisfying
