Review: Cold-Hearted Rake by Lisa Kleypas (2015)

The Ravenels, Book 1

Review of The Ravenels, Book 2

Heat Factor: She’s a widow, so they can have all the sex all over the house

Character Chemistry: Kathleen is the worst and the rake thing is bunk

Plot: Two adults with immense self-imposed baggage and an overdeveloped sense of responsibility find love

Overall: Who cares about Devon and Kathleen? I double down on my Winterborne sentiments. Helen and Rhys are adorable together.

Review: Flirting with the Frenemy by Pippa Grant (2019)

Bro Code, Book 1

Heat Factor: It’s steamy pretty much before you even get to know them

Character Chemistry: It starts with a bang and ends the same way
