Dueling Review: Love’s Serenade by Sheryl Lister (2018)

Decades: A Journey of African American Romance, Book #3

Holly’s Take

Heat Factor: Some cursory details.

Character Chemistry: They seem to have a chemical attraction that supersedes all of Miles’ bad behavior.

Plot: Miles woos Leigh, plus they write a song together.

Overall: The music details were fun, but that’s the only nice thing I can say.

Erin’s Take

Heat Factor: Nothing too involved – it’s kinda lavender

Character Chemistry: Ugh

Plot: Miles abandons Leigh then changes his mind 3 years later and that’s just supposed to be fine

Overall: DNF at 45%

Review: As Seen on TV by Meredith Schorr

Heat Factor: It’s got its moments of heat but it’s not a rip-roaring fire of a book.

Character Chemistry: They’re very real characters–so their chemistry isn’t overpoweringly “meant to be” but it’s adorable the way they work through things together.

Plot: Adi is desperately chasing a story that could make or break her career–and on the way she stumbles into Finn, a dreamy project manager whose company helps lessen the blow when her whole project falls apart.

Overall: This is a very relaxing and sweet read, which makes sense considering Hallmark movies are an integral part of the plot.

Review: Melt for You by J.T. Geissinger (2018)

Slow Burn, Book 2

Heat Factor: This series is called “Slow Burn,” so don’t be surprised when the sex happens pretty late in the story.

Character Chemistry: It’s obvious to everyone but Joellen that Cameron is completely smitten.

Plot: Joellen’s new neighbor is suuuuuper annoying and suuuuuper hot and somehow now he’s giving her kissing lessons.

Overall: I really liked this one, but I also know that some readers may find some parts of this book challenging.

Review: Splash Me by Laura Lovely (2019)

Fairytale Remixes #1

Heat Factor: It’s a very smutty novella, so there’s a lot of heat in a small space.

Character Chemistry: THIS is what I loved—I totally got it.

Plot: April is on a business trip and sexting with her very new flame, Kevin, when he asks her for her secret fantasy. It involves the move Splash and Kevin is all in. 

Overall: It’s quick, it’s cute, and it’s extremely steamy.
