Review: Not Like the Movies by Kerry Winfrey (2020)

Waiting for Tom Hanks, #2

Review of Waiting for Tom Hanks #1

Heat Factor: There’s nothing. It’s closed door.

Character Chemistry: I think all the chemistry was actually in the first book

Plot: 30-ish woman having a meltdown

Overall: This is kind of like when you’re in your early 20s, listening to your friend constantly talk about the guy she’s obsessed with but refuses to do anything about it.

Review: Village Fool by ‘Nathan Burgoine (2021)

A Little Village Novella

Heat Factor: Sweet little kisses

Character Chemistry: They actually interact very little, but the way the story is told made me really want this for them

Review: A Wolf After My Own Heart by MaryJanice Davidson (2021)

BeWere My Heart, Book 2

Review of BeWere My Heart, Book 1

Heat Factor: Barely there (though there is some closed door hanky panky just before the end)

Character Chemistry: “I’m weirdly driven to procreate with you” + antagonism in the mode of grumpy/sunshine

Plot: Non-shifter accidentally rescues child werebear and gets roped into all the were-CPS crime-solving shenanigans

Overall: If you like your books with a healthy dose of absurdity, this checks the box

Review: Wonderstruck by Allie Therin (2021)

Magic in Manhattan, Book #3

Reviews of Magic in Manhattan Book #1 and Book #2

Heat Factor: Extremely low key, still fade-to-black

Character Chemistry: Every time Arthur calls Rory “Teddy” (his real name that only Arthur uses), I turn into a puddle of goo

Plot: We’re finally going to come face to face with the evil baron and save the world!

Overall: I’m glad I read this trilogy.
