Review: Unconventional by Isabel Love (2017)

Heat Factor: The house is on fire

Character Chemistry: They really manage to be totally into each other while also playing with other partners

Plot: Two people who swore never to be in a relationship after trauma fall into a relationship

Overall: This book was really excellent…but after a book that explored so much about having a different kind of successful relationship, the ending, while totally understandable, did not feel very fresh, which bummed me out a little bit

Review: Stripped by Zoey Castile (2018)

Happy Endings, Book #1

Heat Factor: It’s a sexy one!

Character Chemistry: They’re totally hot for each other. Possibly to the exclusion of good decision making.

Fake It Till You Make It, Book #1

Heat Factor: Sure, I guess 

Character Chemistry: Emotional chemistry? I’m not even convinced they had sexual chemistry.

Plot: Woman goes home for vacation, boss follows, and nobody talks to anybody about anything important so everything hits the fan

Overall: I finished this to satisfy my rage and for no other reason

Review: I Think I Love You by Auriane Desombre (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s wholesomely sparky, but in a youthful way

Character Chemistry: Emma and Sophia are combative and then cuddly, and it’s extremely cute

Plot: Omg, guys, it’s Much Ado About Nothing but YA and Bi. Hearts just SHOOTING out of my eyes and also I completely forgot how ridiculous teenagers are?

Overall: This is a really sweet and surprisingly complicated book set to the tune of Much Ado About Nothing, and it was lovely.
