Review: Under an Alaskan Sky by Jennifer Snow (2020)

Wild River, Book #2

Review of Wild River, Book 1

Heat Factor: Once they hop in the sack, it’s like bunnies

Character Chemistry: I’m not entirely sure that the chemistry is as good if you haven’t read the first book in the series.

Plot: She’s been pining for him for five years. Now that he might be ready to make a move, his daughter’s mother comes back to town.

Overall: I can’t deal with emotional angst when it’s just wrong.

Review: Dirty Work by Regina Kyle (2020)

Heat Factor: It’s a sexy one

Character Chemistry: No wishy-washy chemistry here — it’s clear from their first interaction there’s only one way this is going.

Plot: Ainsley started an Executive Concierge business after quitting her job as a high-powered attorney and gets roped into breaking her “no dog care” rule when a friend needs her to help her brother with dog-sitting. Jake’s sole focus is the popular nightclub he owns with his best friend. When Jake is injured and requires someone to stay at his house with him, Ainsley agrees to help — and they POOF/KA-BOOM into an explosion of sexy-times.

Overall: This is just a classic, you-know-what-you’re-getting romance – no twists or turns or fresh takes on an old theme here. But the upside of a classic romance is that even if the story is new, you can depend on your happily ever after and all the warm fuzzies that come with it!

Review: Dominant Business by J. Scott (2020)

Heat Factor: Sex is frequent, detailed, and degrading. Ruby gets double-teamed a lot. 

Character Chemistry: “You remind me of myself when I was younger. I will therefore put you in extremely uncomfortable positions so that I can mold you into your best self.” 

Plot: Business school teacher seduces student. 

Overall: A porno in book form.

Review: An Heiress to Remember by Maya Rodale (2020)

Gilded Age Girls’ Club, Book 3

Review of Gilded Age Girls’ Club, Book 2

Heat Factor: They may think they’re each meeting fire with fire but really they’re just one big sexy inferno

Character Chemistry: I wanted them to get there so, so badly and audibly said “YES!” when they did.

Plot: Two unstoppable titans of business come head to head across the street from one another — he, the self-made man determined to destroy her family’s business and she, the wiser, stronger, natural-born leader of her family’s empire. 

Overall: If you want to walk away from a steamy romance standing taller and looking deeply satisfied, you should definitely read this.
