Review: The Demon’s Secret Baby by Jeanne Oates Estridge (2022)

Touched by a Demon, Book #3

Reviews of Touched by a Demon Book #1 and Book #2

Heat Factor: Lots of hard nipples and clenching thighs, but there’s only one explicit sex scene at about the midway point. Then the morning sickness begins.

Character Chemistry: Lust, longing, and ten thousand years of hurt feelings.

Plot: Samael and Lilith plan a conference with the heavenly delegation.

Overall: Loved the first half, thought the second half was…ok.

Review: Night Hawk by Beverly Jenkins (2011)

Heat Factor: They definitely like the sexytimes, even if they don’t do it all the time

Character Chemistry: I was going to say he’s a tall drink of water and she’s a firecracker, but those metaphors don’t mix well. So. How about: he’s a bottle of Diet Coke, and she’s a Mento

Plot: Maggie got arrested and wound up in a reluctant Ian’s custody, but when he finally manages to leave her, he realizes he really doesn’t want to

Overall: Just when I thought things were slowing down, a new adventure cropped up

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: Husband Material by Alexis Hall (2022)

London Calling, Book #2

Review of London Calling, Book #1

Heat Factor: Lots of kissing and even some canoodling, but it quickly fades to black

Character Chemistry: There is honestly nothing better than the ways that Luc and Oliver show they love each other, both with little, everyday things and when they both let all their messes hang out

Plot: To wed or not to wed? That is the question. But it’s not really a question because the real grownups all get wed… Right? RIGHT?!

Overall: There is so much humor and love in this book, and I had such a blast reading it, but I also had to check myself in the later sections as the writing on the wall became more and more clear

Review: You & Me by Tal Bauer (2022)

Heat Factor: Planning ahead never felt so good

Character Chemistry: Y’all. On the narrator side it’s a slow bi awakening this-new-friend-is-a-lifeline to oh-damn-I’m-actually-in-love-with-him while on the other end it’s CLEARLY an unrequited crush. I did a little happy dance.

Plot: Luke’s teen son won’t talk to him, his estranged wife is tragically dead, and his emotional state is terrible. Luckily he meets Landon, his son’s best friend’s dad, who encourages him to join the football booster club to repair his relationship with his son. Unluckily, he’s just realized he’s actually in love with his new best friend.

Overall: What is all this wetness on my face?
