Series Review: Leveling Up by K.F. Breene

Heat Factor: I would argue that it’s a somewhat slow burn? The heat simmers for at least the first two books and then it really takes off.

Character Chemistry: Jacinta’s chemistry with all of the odd crew mates she attracts is off the charts. And of course, her chemistry with Austin is immediate and deeply satisfying.

Plot: Jacinta is in her 40’s and divorced after twenty fairly routine years of marriage and child-rearing. With her child off to college and nowhere else to go, she accepts a position at a house she encountered as a child and felt a deep affinity with—only to discover the house is magic and in search of a new keeper. 

Overall: This series was INCREDIBLE. So fresh, so funny, so riveting—it’s absolutely nuts.

Review: Dark Slayer by Christine Feehan (2009)

The Dark, Book 17

Heat Factor: They don’t bone until the 75% mark, but before that there’s a lot of womb clenching

Character Chemistry: Soulmates, but also, he’s the only man in an uber-alpha society who truly appreciates Ivory’s badassery

Plot: We must destroy the evil mage!

Overall: It wasn’t bad, but I won’t be reading books 1-16 of the series

Review: The Dragon Prince’s Bride by Elva Birch (2021)

Royal Dragons of Alaska, Book #3

Reviews of Royal Dragons of Alaska: Book #1, Book #2

Heat Factor: Not closed door, but not very intense or explicit

Character Chemistry: The way they go through their captivity together is just absolutely charming

Plot: You think it’s going to be an angsty, pining, stealing-the-fiancée kind of a thing, but then they get kidnapped and everything goes sideways

Overall: My favorite so far in this series. SO FUN.

Review: Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh (2006)

Psy-Changeling, Book #1

Heat Factor: They both think they’re having sex dreams about each other, but it’s actually real

Character Chemistry: It’s always fun when the protagonist knows fated mates is a thing but has no idea how that manifests and it takes a while for everyone to figure it out

Plot: She’s trying to avoid being lobotomized because she has feelings, he’s trying to hunt down a serial killer, they’re fated mates

Overall: Nalini Singh is a queen, and I shouldn’t start a 19 book series right now, but I’m hooked

Review: Dragon Dad’s Nanny by Amelia Wilson (2020)

Dragon Dads Love Chronicles, Book #4

Heat Factor: I feel like it’s supposed to be hot but…it’s not

Character Chemistry: is secondary to everything else going on 

Plot: Sam, a shifter, feels like he’s a bad dad, so he’s initiated a custody review so his shifter hunter ex-wife can have custody of his dragon twin daughters. (Yep. That’s right.)  Meanwhile, nanny AnnaLee can’t have children. 

Overall: This book makes me want to smash the patriarchy (not in a good way)
