Review: Marrying the Billionaire by Allie Winters (2021)

The Bishop Brothers, Book #2

Review of The Bishop Brothers, Book #1

Heat Factor: Considering how much they’re into each other, it’s a pretty slow burn (but with some intermediate stuff going on)

Character Chemistry: I was a little worried because Serena started out determined to show Archer how much she’s worth marrying, but they sorted themselves out

Plot: Serena was supposed to marry Archer’s brother in book one but ended up jilted at the altar, so Archer stepped in to save the day and the business deal

Overall: This book was very chill (except I wanted to rage at Archer’s dad), but also very awesome

Review: A Royal Disaster by Jennifer Bonds (2020)

Heat Factor: I did a text search and confirm sex but as to quality I cannot say

Character Chemistry: It was good, but I should have been more invested by the time I DNFed in order to make it really click

Plot: He’s the heir with overbearing parents and political problems blah, blah, blah; she’s the clumsy commoner who’s a breath of fresh air but could never really be with him blah, blah, blah

Overall: I was so optimistic about having a fun fake relationship comfort read but I really just cannot deal with this one
