Review: Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey (2022)

The Bellinger Sisters, Book #2

Review of The Bellinger Sisters, Book #1

Heat Factor: Get your fans out, it’s a steamy one

Character Chemistry: They have SUCH chemistry. It was obvious in book one, and it’s delicious in book two.

Plot: Hannah convinces her movie director boss to move their location to Westport, where she ends up rooming with her sister’s husband-to-be’s best friend, Fox. Unfortunately, Fox has a MAJOR reputation for being a deadly handsome casanova, so even though he’s got it bad for Hannah, he’s terrified of messing everything up.

Overall: Just electrifyingly steamy and so romantic…

Review: The Bittersweet Bride by Vanessa Riley (2018)

Advertisements for Love, Book #1

Heat Factor: Everything is very proper; the door is firmly closed.

Character Chemistry: Ewan is too obtuse to have chemistry with anyone. 

Plot: Dueling flower farms + Widow must protect her child + First love back from the dead + Battles over an inheritance + Newspaper advertisements for a husband

Overall: I haven’t been this angry about a hero in a long time.

Review: Duke, Actually by Jenny Holiday (2021)

Sequel to A Princess for Christmas

Heat Factor: This is a slow burn with a bit of boning at the end; if you’ve read other Jenny Holiday books, this one is on the tame side. 

Character Chemistry: Dani and Max are adorable, separately and together. 

Plot: Dani and Max become best friends. Then they fall in love, but can’t admit it—not to themselves, and definitely not to each other.

Overall: It’s cute.

Review: The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary (2019)

Heat Factor: There’s plenty of horniness when they figure out their feelings, but the door is closed

Character Chemistry: Epistolary romance very well done

Plot: Tiffy has to move out of her ex’s place and needs really cheap rent. Leon needs money, so he decides on a flatshare, but it’s a weird flatshare because they’re sharing the exact same space, just never at the same time. 

Overall: This is the sort of book that might inspire one to read a whole bunch of other epistolary romance

Character Chemistry: It’s all shy and tender

Plot: Richard loses his job right before Christmas and goes to stay with Tobias, his best friend who he’s never met in person

Overall: It’s a super soft one, folks
