Series Review: Krish / Before Krish by N.J. Bhogayta

Heat Factor: It’s…extremely steamy.

Character Chemistry: It’s pretty electric and from the start you know they’re going to even though…they probably ought not.

Plot: Nicole is a driven, well-regarded, successful up-and-comer in finance and acquisitions when she’s forced into working for Raphael–one of the biggest players in the industry, kind of a bully, and very very sexy. She’s got major baggage (yikes!), he’s one of those guys everyone warns you about (not a good idea, honey) and it’s crisis after sexy crisis for these two.

Overall: I can’t review the entire plot arc, because I’ve only read books 1 and 2 out of 3–but there’s some major red flags AND some major steam in this series that I’ll happily pick apart for you.

Review: Rebel Hard by Nalini Singh (2018)

Hard Play, Book #2

Review of Hard Play, Book #1, Book #3

Heat Factor: OMG! They’re both virgins!!! Love it!

Character Chemistry: If my LI frowned and told me that something I described as romantic wasn’t romantic, it was simply a spouse listening to a spouse’s needs and taking care of them, I would be like, “Let’s just schedule that wedding right now, then, so you can start taking care of me.

Plot: Nayna is really going through a quarter-life crisis. Raj is hoping he can hang on for the ride.

Overall: The (everyday) romance of this book is AMAZING

Review: Truth or Dare by Danielle Allen (2020)

Heat Factor: This game of “truth or dare” got p-r-e-t-t-y daring

Character Chemistry: More told than shown, at least until they start with the sexytimes

Plot: Longtime friends meet up at wedding and play a game of “truth or dare” that changes everything

Overall: There’s a lot of expository text, but the games they played were enough to keep me turning pages
