Review: Whiteout by Adriana Anders (2020)

Survival Instincts, #1

Heat Factor: There’s only one sleeping bag! 

But most of the heat comes from kisses because it’s too cold to actually remove clothing. (Don’t worry! There’s still danger banging!)

Character Chemistry: It’s amazing what stripping away everything but survival will do for a couple. 

Plot: Trek across Antarctica in the winter while being chased by scary bad guys. 

Overall: Starts with a bang, ends with…less of a bang.

Cider Bar Sisters, Book 2.5

Review of Cider Bar Sisters Book 1, Book 2

Heat Factor: There’s only one (twin) bed!

Character Chemistry: I, like Julie, would very much like to be the one person who gets to see the uptight man with his tie off and his top button unbuttoned. Oh la la!

Plot: Younger sister with irregular job feels like a disappointment to her parents and lies to them about a man with whom she had a terrible date but whom they would love. So she ends up inviting him to Christmas, of course!

Overall: Well now I want to have a romantic ice skating date and a baking competition
