Review: If the Boot Fits by Rebekah Weatherspoon (2020)

Cowboys of California, Book #2

(Review of Cowboys of California, Book #1)

Heat Factor: The characters talk freely and often but the action itself is not so lengthy or involved

Character Chemistry: Very natural and low key

Review: Dream Spinner by Kristen Ashley (2021)

Dream Team, Book #3

Heat Factor: There is some explicit sexy sex, but for a KA novel, it’s surprisingly tame

Character Chemistry: One thing I enjoy about this series is that the relationship hangups are resolved pretty early on, and sometimes instead of huge relationship angst it’s nice to think about those early days of playing house and enjoying little things like your new lover cooking dinner for you or bringing you coffee in the morning.

Heat Factor: They get married at about 70% and have a ton of really polite sex

Character Chemistry: I like the sparring partners thing they have going on. I am not excited about polite sex.

Plot: Shy young lady decides to woo proper vicar away from his terrible fiancée and intrigues the disdainful duke, who is clearly perfect for her, in the process

Overall: I put this book in timeout for a week because I was really worried about the black moment, but I needn’t have been

Review of Fast & Fury, Book #1

Heat Factor: It’s not not sexy

Character Chemistry: I confess I’m not sold
