Review: The Dragon Prince of Alaska by Elva Birch (2020)

Royal Dragons of Alaska, Book #1

Heat Factor: The most G-rated non-closed-door sex I’ve ever read: 100% implied, 0% explicit

Character Chemistry: They unreservedly lean on each other for support, which is really lovely

Plot: Threats to her! Threats to the monarchy! Threats all around!

Overall: This would have been A-level reading if the protagonists weren’t TSTL. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series.

Review: Necromancer Rising by Ashton Abbott (2020)

Raedan Warrior Series, Book 1

Heat Factor: It’s about as hot as a book about the undead can be (hotter, if you’ve never once thought the undead could be featured in a smut book)

Character Chemistry: Sexy fated mates but with lots of corpses

Plot: A werewolf warrior man saves a super powerful witch and there are all these other paranormal people and a compound and…there’s a lot going on, but they do fall in love and are hot hot hot during all the shenanigans.

Overall: If you like dark paranormal and lots of plot twists and some well-timed, stress relieving sex scenes, you’ll dig this one.

Review: Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon (2015)

Ice Planet Barbarians, Book 1

Heat Factor: Let’s melt this ice!

Character Chemistry: We will be together because my parasite wills it! Slash, for a fated mates story, they have a super-cute we-are-confused-by-each-other dynamic. 

Plot: Human woman abducted by evil aliens, dumped on a frozen planet, meets a sexy blue alien who definitely wants to bone her. 

Overall: Perfect escapism

Review: Pharaoh’s Bed by Mukami Ngari (2019)

Nubia Love Series, Book 1

Heat Factor: Not exactly closed door, but not particularly 

Character Chemistry: They’re reincarnated lovers so not much opportunity for chemistry growth

Plot: Pharaoh kidnaps rebellious vassal prince’s bride before marriage is consummated…but they were lovers in a past life

Overall: Has some good meat but tells rather than shows
