Review: Lost in LA by Amy Craig (2021)

Heat Factor: It has a few moments but I wouldn’t say it screams “fire”

Character Chemistry: They just don’t have that connection that leads to a satisfying HEA

Plot: Wylie is a freelance beachside yoga instructor who ends up temporarily homeless after getting kicked out of her sublet. She strikes up an Instagram promotional deal with a food truck vendor and before long she finds herself forging ahead with a new life in a shared house situation, all while falling for Nolan (the food truck secret billionaire).

Overall: This book leaned into Smut Adjacent territory because the couple’s romance ended up taking a back seat to the sub plot.

Review: Blood and Bone by Paula Dombrowiak (2020)

Heat Factor: It’s steamy but it’s a slow build and it’s a very unique unfolding.

Character Chemistry: There are so many kinds of chemistry here it’s impossible to summarize.

Plot: Jack is a world-famous musician whose career began with his other half, Mia. At perhaps the twilight of his career, Jack is interviewed by Erin, a journalist. Together they unfold a story and also a deep and profound connection.

Overall: This is a two-fer – one romance, smut adjacent but deeply touching. The other, a very sweet HEA. I would not categorize this as a classic romance, but a very well written adult fiction with an engaging romance story line.

Review: Crashing Into Her by Mia Sosa (2019)

Love on Cue, Book 3

Reviews of Love on Cue Book 1, Book 2

Heat Factor: Unlike Danny Zuko, Anthony can Get It at the drive in.

Character Chemistry: So much witty banter – but they also really see each other

Overall: Low angst. High heat. I couldn’t put it down.
