Review: Archangel’s Enigma by Nalini Singh (2015)

Guild Hunter, Book #8

Heat Factor: This one’s a slow burn, but there is much discussion of “rutting” along the way

Character Chemistry: Naasir is looking for a mate to play secret games with and it turns out The Scholar wears two skins just like him

Plot: Naasir and Andromeda have to find the sleeping ancient Alexander before Archangel of Death Lijuan can find and kill him

Overall: This book is a ride and I enjoyed all of it.

Dueling Review, Monster Mash Smashdown, Recommended Read

Monster Mash Smashdown: Books by C.M. Nascosta

Morning Glory Milking Farm

Heat Factor: Violet really wants that big bull dick (and meaty balls).

Character Chemistry: We’ve got some bossy daddy energy going on here.

Plot: Broke millennial takes pharmaceutical job “milking” (*wink*) minotaur bulls for the benefits and living wage then falls for a client.

Overall: Don’t be scared by the title or the premise. This book is *delightful*.

Girls Weekend

Heat Factor: There’s a lot of sex (even kinky sex), but we wouldn’t call this book high heat because the plot banks the flames. 

Character Chemistry: There are a lot of moving parts here (pun intended) so it’s hard to generalize.

Plot: Three friends go to an orc nudist colony for some casual hookups, two find guys and catch feelings.

Overall: Even though it’s literally a girls weekend at an orgy town, this book is so much more than “SPRING BREAK! TAKE OFF YOUR TOP!!” It’s weird. In a good way. And it might not be a genre romance?

Character Chemistry: They were so not on the same page but also so into each other

Plot: So many drama shenanigans 

Overall: Oof

Review: Wolf’s Instinct: A Day Care for Shifters by Elva Birch (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s not high heat, but it’s certainly sweet.

Character Chemistry: There’s not a ton of tension but it’s certainly an adorable romance.

Plot: Addison is a new resident of small-town Montana and gets a job at a shifter nursery where she meets single-dad Roderick. Roderick is also dealing with the arrival of his daughter’s birth mother, crazy town politics and presumably just being a shifter dad.

Overall: This book was a charming little palate cleanser. Not too tense, not too boring. Just lovely.
