Series Review: Dream Man Series by Kristen Ashley (2011)

Heat Factor: It’s Kristin Ashley, so…It’s all pretty much a rolling boil

Character Chemistry: So much sassy back-and-forth

Plot: Action, Sass, Action, #RelationshipGoals, ACTION EEK!!!, #RELATIONSHIPGOALS

Review: A Change in Tide by Freya Barker (2020)

Northern Lights, Book #1

Heat Factor: There is a good deal of self-love happening before the loving each other happens 

Character Chemistry: Overall good, but she played some games with him that I didn’t like

Plot: Woman decides she wants to figure out how to push past her PTSD agoraphobia anxiety for the life she wants. Man decides to focus on family after his hockey career is ended.

Overall: Everything is just fine.

Review: Strictly Come Dating by Kathryn Freeman (2020)

Heat Factor: More of a Viennese Waltz than a Tango

Character Chemistry: I liked that they didn’t try to fight it

Plot: He’s a 27-yo free spirit, she’s a 37/38-yo obsessed with structure, so of course forced proximity leads to a “fling”

Overall: I was mostly able to let go of people being messy and enjoy a charming romance, but there were some latent value judgements I didn’t like

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. 

Overall: The plot meanders but sometimes a book (even a romance) is more than a tight plot. I recommend reading this one.
