Review: The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels by India Martin (2021)

Dangerous Damsels, Book #1

Heat Factor: The door is very slightly ajar

Character Chemistry: Banter + assassination attempts + confusing pants feels

Plot: Let’s just say it’s bonkers

Overall: A very fun read…if you’re in the right mood

Review: A Lady’s Code of Misconduct by Meredith Duran (2017)

Heat Factor: I wouldn’t call it steamy, but it’s definitely not closed door.

Character Chemistry: It’s deliciously complicated.

Plot: Crispin is *the worst*. Except now he has amnesia and is nice. And also has a wife, who doesn’t seem to like him all that much?

Overall: The romance is an exceptional emotional roller coaster, but there’s some other plot that worked less well.

Review: Battle Royal by Lucy Parker (2021)

Palace Insiders, #1

Heat Factor: A little bit of spice to go with all those sweets

Character Chemistry: The way she makes his eye twitch

Plot: Rival bakery owners compete on bid for royal wedding cake (plus a bunch of other stuff)

Overall: I feel very emotionally manipulated right now; this is not *necessarily* a bad thing

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: Heartbreak for Hire by Sonia Hartl (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s a pretty juicy one

Character Chemistry: They’re an instant connection that kind of shifts and evolves over time

Plot: Brinkley is working semi-undercover as a Heartbreaker—she goes out and exacts revenge on men who are wronging women. She ends up flunking a mark (who is named Mark!) and is shocked to discover that Mark is hired to be her new trainee…but everyone is lying and it’s a real mess.

Overall: I loathed whole parts of this book but I’m pretty sure the author did it to me on purpose because it all kind of fed into the ending.
