Review: Figure of Speech by Kasha Thompson (2022)

Heat Factor: The whole middle of the book is pretty much sex.

Character Chemistry: feelings are annoying

Plot: The new White House Press Secretary worked with the president once many years ago. This time he’s not about to let her get away.

Overall: I was put off by the way the president was initially represented (it’s single POV from Clover), and that kind of snowballed with other things as I continued to read

Review: The Golden Rush by Ariella Talix (2022)

Heat Factor: Our trio is very creative about the ways they fit their bits together. 

Character Chemistry: They didn’t seem like fleshed out characters to me, so it’s hard to say that they had chemistry. But they didn’t have negative chemistry either.

Plot: What happens when a woman comes to gold rush California, when men outnumber women 100 to 1.

Overall: Very expository.

Review: Secret Service by Tal Bauer (2022)

Heat Factor: I might go so far as to say lotsa sex, but it’s not lotsa super explicit sex, but also that first BJ will probably live rent free in my head for a while 

Character Chemistry: Love at first sight + so much angst

Plot: The president and his Secret Service detail lead are in love. Also the president has disappeared. Without his detail lead (in case that wasn’t obvious).

Overall: It’s present-past (roughly) alternating non-linear, so I was thrown for a minute…until I was totally sucked in

Review: Irretrievably Wicked by Constance Kersaint (2022)

Rebel by Night, Book #1

Heat Factor: High high heat. He loves her quim and worships it accordingly.

Character Chemistry: Two lonely people take care of each other.

Plot: Cress hires a highwayman to break her idiot brother out of prison.

Overall: Propulsive adventure that needed another round of editing.

Review: Beautiful & Dirty and The Don by Katrina Jackson (2020-2022)

The Family, Book #1 & 5

Review of The Family, Book #2 & Book #3

Heat Factor: There is plenty of time for sex no matter what else is happening

Character Chemistry: A lot of this couple’s chemistry occurs in Beautiful & Dirty, but they’re so happy to be reunited in The Don

Plot: Shae meets Salvatore on a day that she’s about done with her selfish boyfriend, and when her day in Naples ends with a pregnancy, she’s a little lost…until her cousin’s disappearing act takes her right back to Italy and Salvatore’s restaurant

Overall: You kind of have to read the whole series, but if half sex, half mayhem sounds fun to you, I definitely recommend it.
