Review: The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows by Olivia Waite (2020)

Feminine Pursuits, Book 2

Review of Feminine Pursuits, Book 1

Heat Factor: Slow, steady, burn.

Character Chemistry: So much pining! But also, believable BFFs. And they do that thing where they call each other by last name and I swoon every time. 

Plot: A year in the life of Flood and Griffin.

Character Chemistry: These two beautiful wrecks gave me butterflies

Plot: “My life is a bit of a mess, and a fake relationship will possibly help me fix it. Or complicate it. Or make it so much better.” 

Overall: I stayed up until 4 a.m. to finish this book and didn’t even realize it. And I wish I could both devour it again and slowly savor it.
