Review: The Executive Office Series by Tal Bauer (2016-2017)

Heat Factor: It is a not insubstantial amount of soul-searing lovemaking

Character Chemistry: OMG, I was so invested

Plot: There’s a global conspiracy to burn down the world, and the US president and his secret service detail lead find themselves right in the middle of it

Overall: The three primary books are a total of 52 hours and 48 minutes in audio plus there’s a 200 page holiday interlude story as well, and I devoured them all in 5 days. What even is sleep?

Review: The Unmatchmakers by Jackie Lau (2022)

Plot: Nina is laid off from her job as a librarian and jumps headfirst into running a very small, very cute bookstore from a very large van in the northern Scottish countryside, where she ends up meeting a grumpy farmer going through a divorce.

Overall: It was adorable to the max and full of dry humor.

Dungeons and Dating, #3

Reviews Dungeons and Dating, Book #1 & Book #2

Heat Factor: Three detailed encounters in the last chunk of the book—they have a lot of pining to get through first

Character Chemistry: “I think this person is so great, but there’s no way they like me”

Plot: Mason and Hunter start carpooling to work together, and that push is just what they need to open up to each other

The Queer Principles of Kit Webb, Book #2

Heat Factor: We’ve got praise kink!

Character Chemistry: Sometimes two wrongs DO make a right

Plot: When Marian accidentally-on-purpose kills her husband, she goes on the run. And kidnaps Rob so he can aid and abet her. After all, he had been blackmailing her, and who could better help her escape the law than a criminal?

Overall: I love me a good highwayman roadtrip book!
