Review: Trouble and Strife by Lara Kinsey (2020)

Chances Limited, Book 2

Heat Factor: Lots of foreplay, minimal penetration. Still steamy. 

Character Chemistry: Elizabeth and Sidney treat each other really well and it’s very sweet. 

Plot: For a book called “Trouble and Strife”, this novella was remarkably low-key. There was very little tension or conflict or drama. 

Overall: I inhaled this book and wished it were longer.

Review: Ten Week Turnabout by Amelia Rose (2020)

Heat Factor: HOT   

Character Chemistry: The bump along grumpily until they bump along quite happily

Plot: Ingrid (not me), a driven, smart, fierce New York transplant, runs into her high school dance date from Indiana at a work mixer. Noah, in New York on his summer break in an effort to make his brewery dream a reality, is immediately drawn to his “snooty” and slightly abrasive classmate.

Overall: I spent the whole time on the edge of my seat wondering how in the heck these two memorable characters were going to pull this off.

Review: Spice and Smoke by Suleikha Snyder (2012)

Bollywood Confidential, Book 1

Heat Factor: Based on the blurb, I was honestly expecting more sex (or kinkier sex?) than there was. There is definitely sex, but no group activities. 

Character Chemistry: Lots of sexual attraction

Plot: More like three short stories than one cohesive novella

Overall: In an author’s note to the current edition, Snyder refers to this book as “banana-pants” and she is not wrong.
