Heat Factor: When it’s hot it’s hot

Character Chemistry: They’re both immediately physically attracted, but it takes a while for everything else to sort itself out

Plot: Sulky, directionless new adult ends up figuring out his direction while apprenticing with his dad’s best friend

Overall: If I’m honest, I was only looking for something to study daddy kink romance, so my expectations were not high, but I really enjoyed this book

Review: Daddy Crush by A. Anders (2020)

Character Chemistry: Woo, boy, do these two want to jump each other’s bones

Plot: Sheltered mid-20-something wants to experience all the sex and romance that her family wouldn’t allow now that she’s independent, but the only man who does it for her is her standoffish silver fox neighbor

Dueling Review: Your Dad Will Do by Katee Robert (2020)

Erin made us buddy read Your Dad Will Do because she likes to make Ingrid uncomfortable. Which means it’s that time again: time for a dueling review!

A Touch of Taboo, Book 1

Let’s start by each giving our metric for rating the book: 

Erin:

Heat Factor: It’s … imaginative

Character Chemistry: Indisputably they have sexual chemistry

Plot: She found her fiance cheating, so she gets back at him by making a move on his dad

Overall: Well it’s definitely hot, but the interpersonal dynamics are…concerning

Holly:

Heat Factor: Yup, it’s sexy. And they like being watched, so the reader-voyeur is helping make it sexier. 

Character Chemistry: I am so glad that they each found another person who shares their kinks! 

Plot: Revenge sex turns to love

Overall: If you like Daddy Kink and Sexy Sex, read this book! It’s well written. If you don’t like those things, then don’t read this book, because the entire plot is sexy sex. 

Ingrid: 

Heat Factor: I mean, it’s pretty much entirely written to BE hot from start to finish

Character Chemistry: They definitely seem like peanut butter and jelly in the bedroom

Plot: She starts out seeking a revenge hookup with her ex-fiance’s dad and ends up in a whole thing

Overall: If you like daddy/kinky/revenge sex this is probably right up your alley.

Review: A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole (2006)

All three of the Smut Reporters read A Hunger Like No Other. Erin and Ingrid loved it, but Holly was a little meh on the whole thing. Which means it’s time for a Dueling Review!

Immortals After Dark, Book 1

Let’s start by each giving our metric for rating the book:

Erin

Heat Factor: There was a point I told my husband to stop talking to me because I was in the middle of some hot, bitey werewolf/vampire sex

Character Chemistry: For the first few chapters I was extremely concerned by his anger and her cluelessness, but they turned it around.

Plot: Innocent, sheltered vampire tames powerful, fierce werewolf

Overall: Hahaha, Yaaaaaaas!

Holly:

Heat Factor: Never accept a blow job from a vampire. 

Character Chemistry: “I hate you! But you’re my mate! I am so confused!”

Plot: Uh, all the magical creatures are being forced into confrontation so that they can kill each other off. And that means that this werewolf finally finds his mate and she’s a vampire and he hates vampires. And that’s just chapter 1! 

Overall: This book was well-executed, but epic paranormal romances are so not my jam. 

Ingrid

Heat Factor: I really can’t deny the steam factor in this one.

Character Chemistry: It went from “Omg these guys need therapy. Separately.” to “They’re going to have 10 babies and I love it so much” in pages. PAGES.

Plot: Ok, well…she’s really green about the fangs and he’s got some centuries of torture issues going on and then they turn it all around and heads come off and furniture gets broken but like, in a hot way.

Overall: I had a few spots where I was like, oh no I don’t know if this is going to work, but then it was extremely diverting and I ended up really liking it.

Review: Venom by Dee Garcia (2019)

Rosewood Realm, Book 1

Character Chemistry: A rebound situation if there ever was one.

Plot: Captain Hook is a vampire who is obsessed with Tinksley Bell. Tink is in love with Peter Pan. When Peter leaves and Tink is depressed, Hook helps her recover and also embrace her inner darkness. 

Overall: I don’t even know what to tell you.
