Review: Whiteout by Adriana Anders (2020)

Survival Instincts, #1

Heat Factor: There’s only one sleeping bag! 

But most of the heat comes from kisses because it’s too cold to actually remove clothing. (Don’t worry! There’s still danger banging!)

Character Chemistry: It’s amazing what stripping away everything but survival will do for a couple. 

Plot: Trek across Antarctica in the winter while being chased by scary bad guys. 

Overall: Starts with a bang, ends with…less of a bang.

Heat Factor: This is the most chill sex I think I’ve ever read

Character Chemistry: Heart eyes. 

Plot: Antihero catches feelings for angel woman

Overall: I don’t think I’ve ever read a Kleypas with less drama, but it was extremely satisfying

Review: A Widow’s Guide to Scandal by Hallie Alexander (2020)

Sons of Neptune, Book 1

Heat Factor: Sometimes you gotta bang on the kitchen floor

Character Chemistry: They are really mean to each other, but they seem to like it

Plot: Marcus breaks his ankle fixing Henrietta’s roof, and is stuck in her house while he heals. Plus there’s some light espionage action. 

Overall: I had some problems with the writing style
