Review: Dating Dr. Dil by Nisha Sharma (2022)

If Shakespeare was an Auntie, Book #1

Heat Factor: There’s plenty of stuff that goes on, but he is very invested in her, er, orchid. 

Character Chemistry: It’s Something at first sight, they just can’t agree on what that Something is.

Plot: They’re soulmates who have fundamentally different beliefs about love, which pushes them apart, but life goal deadlines for both of them push them back together.

Overall: The Prem scenes after they have sex for the first time are amazing.

Review: Season’s Change by Cait Nary (2022)

Trade Season, Book #1

Heat Factor: Centers on the emotional tension growing, not on the sex (which was so tender)

Character Chemistry: I was on tenterhooks

Plot: Olly has a lot of trauma to deal with and Benji is a little bit clueless but extremely supportive

Overall: Uff da, what a tearjerker!

Review: Lies & Lullabies by Sarina Bowen (2020)

Hush Note, Book #1

Heat Factor: They have very gentle loving sex because of Kira’s past

Character Chemistry: I got sucked in by all their drama, so I guess it worked

Plot: “OMG I am SO happy to see you again!” → “WTF I have a CHILD?!” → “Let’s be together forever, I promise that me being a rock star who tours for months every year will not be a problem.”

Overall: I was expecting to get bent out of shape about the secret baby drama, but I got some bonus annoyance as well.

Dueling Review, Recommended Read

Dueling (?) Review: Headless by Aveda Vice (2021)

For our final monster smut of October, we’re talking about Headless. This is not so much a duel as a short discussion because (spoiler alert) we all liked it. Definitely recommended if you’re in the mood for some Halloween reading.

Heat Factor: It’s very much about how their sexual relationship keeps them connected, but it’s more evocative than squelching body parts.

Character Chemistry: Big sad feels that they only have their throuple together one night per year!

Plot: After Brom disappears one Halloween, Abe and Katrin spend the rest of their Halloweens awaiting his ghostly return

Overall: I was expecting Headless Horseman throuple sexytimes and this is that but…it’s completely different than I expected

Review: Perfect Temptation by K.B. Alan (2021)

Perfect Fit, Book #4

Review of Perfect Fit, Book # 3

Heat Factor: Well, they explore a lot of kinky play, but it’s not the same as a book that is aiming for titillating kink. If that makes sense.

Character Chemistry: The trust comes fast but the emotion builds slow

Plot: Nathalie had a bad Dom and decided BDSM wasn’t for her, but when she discusses her history with a good Dom, she realizes she might be able to safely explore her fantasies again. 

Overall: This is an example of when really spicy content doesn’t feel spicy because it’s so thoughtful
