Review: The Enforcer by Katrina Jackson

The Family, Book #3

Review of The Family, Book #2

Heat Factor: Mercy. It is absolutely filthy. *fans self*

Character Chemistry: Her spikey spots fit in his soft spots

Plot: “What kind of criminal shenanigans did my family get me into?” → “Guess I’m gonna make the most of this unplanned vacation on the Amalfi Coast.”

Overall: AHHHHH! Cliffhanger! (Not for Zoe and Alfonso, but this is such a dramatic series!)

Review: Blood of the Land by Adrik Kemp (2016)

Heat Factor: There’s a lot of sex. It’s graphic. And most of it isn’t between the protagonists.

Character Chemistry: So, the book isn’t actually focused on Mack and Jason’s relationship as such 

Plot: Sociopath vampires wreak havoc on a ranch in colonial Australia. And then it’s the 90s. 

Overall: WUT

Review: A Graduate Education by Phoebe Thorpe (2021)

Heat Factor: Oh, my.

Character Chemistry: Well, it’s a good thing these guys hang out with academics, because someone needs to study the chemical reaction that happens every time they’re in the same general breathing space.

Plot: Mia is a grad student recovering from a really crappy relationship when she strikes up a heated romance with Brett—who is, as it turns out, her professor. 

Overall: This book is a big boundary pusher, but it’s HOT. So some people are going to hate it, but it’s also pretty darn good.

Review: Santa Claus is Going to Town on Me by M.L. Eliza (2021)

Heat Factor: His jizz tastes like peppermint

Character Chemistry: Instant attraction, plus Santa has a special power where he knows your desires *eyebrow waggle*

Plot: Holly hates Christmas, but she’s definitely going to bone Santa when given the chance

Overall: Sexy rumpus that’s surprisingly thoughtful and legitimately touching

Series Review: The Princess Shanyin Saga by Liliana Lee (2014)

Heat Factor: These books go on the Erotica shelf

Character Chemistry: There’s a cosmic connection, but I don’t always buy it

Plot: Princess Shanyin gets a hot young lord sent to her harem. Power plays (and lots of sex) ensue

Overall: If you’re looking for high-brow reverse-harem erotica with bonus disturbing political machinations set in 5th century China, The Obsession is excellent. If you want the HEA, read the full series—but note that The Enslavement and The Fulfillment are less tightly written.
