Review: Playing It Safe by Amy Andrews (2021)

Sydney Smoke Rugby, Book #7

Heat Factor: kinda like: the first time they do something it’s explicit but then subsequent times we can bypass that detail

Character Chemistry: “This person is extra special” at first sight

Plot: closeted gay rugby player finally meets a man who makes him want what he never needed before

Overall: I don’t know. On the one hand it’s super readable. On the other… 🙃

Review: Rebel Hard by Nalini Singh (2018)

Hard Play, Book #2

Review of Hard Play, Book #1, Book #3

Heat Factor: OMG! They’re both virgins!!! Love it!

Character Chemistry: If my LI frowned and told me that something I described as romantic wasn’t romantic, it was simply a spouse listening to a spouse’s needs and taking care of them, I would be like, “Let’s just schedule that wedding right now, then, so you can start taking care of me.

Plot: Nayna is really going through a quarter-life crisis. Raj is hoping he can hang on for the ride.

Overall: The (everyday) romance of this book is AMAZING

Hard Play, Book #1

Review of Hard Play, Book #3

Heat Factor: Sailor’s a landscaper who works outside in the dirt and sun…without a shirt. Isa is super duper horny about it.

Character Chemistry: Sailor is competence porn

Plot: Isa’s been neglected by her high-powered parents, like, forever. Sailor’s extremely motivated to make his business a huge success. Isa doesn’t want to come second to her lover.

Overall: I don’t know what magic Singh has that makes such a simple story so full of amazing, thrilling tension, but I want that special sauce in all the books

Series Review: Wind Dragons MC by Chantal Fernando (2014)

Heat Factor: There is a great deal of graphic sex, but they all have mostly the same sex so you’ll know if you’re into it after one nibble.

Character Chemistry: She’s my woman. What else is there?

Plot: Bikers manufacture drama by being super duper macho and having beefs with other bikers and people

Overall: Good if you like a little MC romance without going full dark emotional mess

Overall: I was bored.
