Heat Factor: This game of “truth or dare” got p-r-e-t-t-y daring

Character Chemistry: More told than shown, at least until they start with the sexytimes

Plot: Longtime friends meet up at wedding and play a game of “truth or dare” that changes everything

Overall: There’s a lot of expository text, but the games they played were enough to keep me turning pages

Review: A Fake Girlfriend for Chinese New Year by Jackie Lau (2019)

Holidays with the Wongs, Book #3

Review of Holidays with the Wongs, Book #1

Heat Factor: Oops! We kissed in the ice skating forest, so now we should probably also have all the sex…just to get it out of our system, of course

Character Chemistry: Apparently I’m a sucker for the best friends-but-one’s-secretly-in-love trope

Plot: Zach and Jo bonded over beers and broken engagements four years ago and have been friends ever since. After Zach’s family set up him and his siblings on dates at Thanksgiving, he won’t put it past them to do something wild at Chinese New Year, so he asks Jo to be his fake girlfriend.

Overall: It’s like a warm hug

Review: Hookup State of Mind by Becca Morgan and Amelia J. Rose (2021)

Heat Factor: I would call this one moderately hot (but satisfying!)

Character Chemistry: I loved these two together–kind of salty and sweet, earnest and slightly sarcastic.

Plot: Cleo is an actress slash nanny who is FINALLY getting her shot at a mini series. At the location, she gets a hankering for a hookup and ends up meeting Dean, who is a really genuine and sweet guy she can’t seem to get enough of. BUT THEN they discover that Cleo is actually Dean’s little brother’s nanny, and that throws a big old wrench in things…

Overall: This was enjoyable and funny, although it did pass up on playing out some tension I would have very much liked to see.

Character Chemistry: Umm

Overall: This title belongs in sexy sex erotica fantasy land
