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.

Plot: Novice Witch hexes Rock God old enough to be her father. Lots of woo-woo shenanigans ensue.
