Review: Constitution Check by Katherine McIntyre (2022)

Dungeons and Dating, Book #4

Reviews of previous books in Dungeons and Dating: Book #1, Book #2, Book #3

Heat Factor: Sex in an alley. Sex in a public bathroom stall. Eventually they even make it to a bed.

Character Chemistry: My trauma recognizes your trauma.

Plot: We said we’re keeping this casual and so we will but do we really want to?

Overall: There’s a very specific dynamic here where the characters are very up in their heads. If that’s a thing you like, then you’ll probably like this.

Review: Enemies to Lovers by Aster Glenn Grey (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s short and steamy!

Character Chemistry: It’s a pretty sweet and average meet-cute at first, until everything clicks and you realize THEY’RE ONLINE ENEMIES!! Then it’s full steam ahead…

Plot: Megan is a fanfic writer who meets a fellow fan (who is also literally her other half, interests-wise) only to discover that Sarah is her harshest critic online. When she goes to confront her in their writer’s group, they end up stuck together and sparks fly.

Overall: This is short, sweet, witty, and funny—but yes, it does have a lot of niche-specific language that can be kind of confusing if you’re not into online fanfic.

 Review: Can’t Resist Her by Kianna Alexander (2020)

Heat Factor: We’ve got some dildo action!

Character Chemistry: It’s pretty insta.

Plot: Summer is trying to stop gentrification; Aiko works for a developer. Even though they’re on opposite sides of a proposed building project, they can’t help wanting to date.

Overall: This book made me irrationally angry.

Review: D’Vaughn and Kris Plan a Wedding by Chencia C. Higgins (2022)

Heat Factor: The making out is hot and heavy (plus there’s some sex, too)

Character Chemistry: Their families believe it instantly, but there’s no way this can be anything but fake. Right?

Plot: Kris and D’Vaughn are on a reality show where they have to convince their families that they’re in love—and then plan a wedding together

Overall: Utterly charming
