Review: The Enforcer by Katrina Jackson

The Family, Book #3

Review of The Family, Book #2

Heat Factor: Mercy. It is absolutely filthy. *fans self*

Character Chemistry: Her spikey spots fit in his soft spots

Plot: “What kind of criminal shenanigans did my family get me into?” → “Guess I’m gonna make the most of this unplanned vacation on the Amalfi Coast.”

Overall: AHHHHH! Cliffhanger! (Not for Zoe and Alfonso, but this is such a dramatic series!)

Series Review: The Princess Shanyin Saga by Liliana Lee (2014)

Heat Factor: These books go on the Erotica shelf

Character Chemistry: There’s a cosmic connection, but I don’t always buy it

Plot: Princess Shanyin gets a hot young lord sent to her harem. Power plays (and lots of sex) ensue

Overall: If you’re looking for high-brow reverse-harem erotica with bonus disturbing political machinations set in 5th century China, The Obsession is excellent. If you want the HEA, read the full series—but note that The Enslavement and The Fulfillment are less tightly written.

Plot: Jay tries to ask Isla out, but kind of accidentally hires her as his assistant instead. Turns out, she’s really good at being an assistant. 

Overall: This is a very soft, gentle romance with soft, gentle characters.

Review: Perfect Temptation by K.B. Alan (2021)

Perfect Fit, Book #4

Review of Perfect Fit, Book # 3

Heat Factor: Well, they explore a lot of kinky play, but it’s not the same as a book that is aiming for titillating kink. If that makes sense.

Character Chemistry: The trust comes fast but the emotion builds slow

Plot: Nathalie had a bad Dom and decided BDSM wasn’t for her, but when she discusses her history with a good Dom, she realizes she might be able to safely explore her fantasies again. 

Overall: This is an example of when really spicy content doesn’t feel spicy because it’s so thoughtful

Review: Gifting Me to His Best Friend by Katee Robert (2020)

Touch of Taboo, Book #2

Review of Touch of Taboo, Book #1

Heat Factor: This book is pictured next to the definition of “one-handed read”

Character Chemistry: Mostly developed off page prior to this book, but it works

Plot: Let’s just play out this fantasy. It’ll be fiiiiine.

Overall: If you’re only in it for the sexy sex, this will absolutely work, but Robert actually also does some interesting things here
