Review: Hexbreaker by Jordan L. Hawk (2016)

Hexworld, Book #1

Heat Factor: They have a very good time. A very good time. 

Character Chemistry: Tom is like, “Oh, I like him,” and Cicero is all hissing and spitting until he actually interacts with Tom a bit and is like, “Oh, he’s a sweet ogre! But also I can’t actually bond with him!”

Plot: A death on his beat looks eerily similar to the hex that destroyed Tom’s family, so against his self-preservation instincts, he gets himself transferred to the witch police HQ, where he meets his familiar, Cicero, who is looking into a similar mysterious death.

Overall: It took me a minute to get my head sorted with new worldbuilding, but once I did I couldn’t put it down

Review: An Heiress to Remember by Maya Rodale (2020)

Gilded Age Girls’ Club, Book 3

Review of Gilded Age Girls’ Club, Book 2

Heat Factor: They may think they’re each meeting fire with fire but really they’re just one big sexy inferno

Character Chemistry: I wanted them to get there so, so badly and audibly said “YES!” when they did.

Plot: Two unstoppable titans of business come head to head across the street from one another — he, the self-made man determined to destroy her family’s business and she, the wiser, stronger, natural-born leader of her family’s empire. 

Overall: If you want to walk away from a steamy romance standing taller and looking deeply satisfied, you should definitely read this.
