Review: Witch Please by Ann Aguirre (2021)

Fix-It Witches, Book #1

Heat Factor: She climbs him like a tree, so that’s fun…but I would have liked a little more communication beforehand

Character Chemistry: They were so not on the same page but also so into each other

Plot: So many drama shenanigans 

Overall: Oof

Review: Too Good to be Real by Melonie Johnson (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s every Rom Com you’ve ever watched in book form. No, seriously.

Character Chemistry: Of course it’s instantaneous and soul-shaking on a cellular level. Have you never watched a Rom Com?

Plot: Julia the journalist is facing layoffs at the office–so she proposes an article reviewing a resort specialising in providing that sweeping Rom Com experience. Luke is the developer responsible for programming the Rom Com experience–but when he realizes who the journalist is, he decides to role play her love interest for REAL. You can imagine how that goes.

Overall: This book is a totally fun and ridiculous romp.

Review: Beach Read by Emily Henry (2020)

Heat Factor: I was expecting chick-lit level steam (so not much), and I was wrong

Character Chemistry: When it’s good, it’s good. When they’re struggling, I wanted to SCREAM.

Plot: She’s having a quarter life crisis. He’s a tortured soul. They’re both writers and neighbors on the lake in Michigan.

Overall: I am seriously not on board with January assuring Gus that she’ll stick through the messiness when Gus is scared to try a relationship and then immediately bailing in a meltdown when things get messy. Seriously. Not.

Review: There’s Magic Between Us by Jillian Maria (2021)

Heat Factor: Very, very mild, which in this case is absolutely age appropriate.

Character Chemistry: The absolute best kind of YA—not at all angsty, sweet, surprising, and all about that plot.

Plot: Lydia goes to visit her Grandma for a week, and is immediately drawn to the forest—the very forest her mother has described as dark and scary. While exploring, she meets a beautiful and fascinating girl named Eden, who is searching for “treasure”. Soon, she discovers that her whole past and the forest are not at all what they seem…dun, dun, DUN!!

Overall: This book is like a magical snow globe of amazing. I loved it.

Review: Serving Sin by Angelina M. Lopez (2021)

Filthy Rich, Book #3

Reviews of Filthy Rich Book #1 and Book #2

Heat Factor: Frequently interrupted, so there’s lots of foreplay, but full penetration doesn’t happen until the very end. It must be noted that Lopez’s sex writing is top-notch, with or without penetration. 

Character Chemistry: Is there a grade higher than A+?

Plot: I must protect you! / I am a powerful woman, but I accept your protection. 

Overall: A satisfying end to the series
