Dueling Review: Priest by Sierra Simone (2015)

If Holly were to review this book, she would call it a Recommended Read. If Ingrid were to review this book, she would write a Rant. Clearly, we needed to review this book together.

Welcome to Dueling Reviews.

Moderated by Erin, who has no emotional investment in this book at all.

Ingrid’s Take:

Heat Factor: It’s scorching…which is fitting, because with the stuff these two pulled in a Catholic church they may very well end up somewhere toasty.

Character Chemistry: I don’t dig what they dig…but they dig it, and each other, a LOT.

Plot: Catholic priest ends up attracted to a woman who is apparently irresistible but has no hobbies or interests or personality and they end up finding a new, sexy spiritual path together.

Overall: This book has some majorly interesting dynamics but I had to put it down out of sheer frustration many times (and not the FUN kind of frustration, either).

Holly’s Take:

Heat Factor: Absolutely filthy, in the best way

Character Chemistry: Father Bell would have chemistry with a cardboard box

Plot: Catholic priest has sex, angst ensues

Overall: I had so much fun reading this book

Review

Review: The Rogue Not Taken by Sarah MacLean (2015)

Scandal and Scoundrel, Book 1

Heat Factor: Lots of cunnilingus. I can get behind this. 

Character Chemistry: “We don’t even like each other!”

Plot: She needs a ride to Mayfair, so she stows away in his carriage. And ends up going all the way to Cumbria. Whoops. (Basically: Almost to Scotland. We all know what happens when you go to Scotland in Regency Smut.) 

Overall: A really fun read, despite some of the “No YOU deserve better” nonsense that occurs.

Review, The Duke Project

Review: How to Love a Duke in Ten Days by Kerrigan Byrne (2019)

Devil You Know, Book 1

Heat Factor: There is a stupendous amount of very detailed foreplay

Character Chemistry: Their chemistry carries the book

Plot: Overcoming sexual trauma, with a heavy side of blackmail and death threats

Overall: The relationship is great, but the rest didn’t quite work for me
