Review: The Rogue Not Taken by Sarah MacLean (2015)

Scandal and Scoundrel, Book 1

Heat Factor: Lots of cunnilingus. I can get behind this. 

Character Chemistry: “We don’t even like each other!”

Plot: She needs a ride to Mayfair, so she stows away in his carriage. And ends up going all the way to Cumbria. Whoops. (Basically: Almost to Scotland. We all know what happens when you go to Scotland in Regency Smut.) 

Overall: A really fun read, despite some of the “No YOU deserve better” nonsense that occurs.

Review: The Marquis She’s Been Waiting For by Ella Quinn (2019)

The Marriage Game, Book 10

Heat Factor: They’re pretty proper. They do jump in the sack after they’re engaged.

Character Chemistry: The holding each other at a distance while also becoming more intimate was kinda sorta cute.

Plot: “Please rescue me, my love. My life is a hot mess.”

Overall: If you like high drama, this isn’t for you. If you like low key stress, this is probably a good fit.

Character Chemistry: it’s gonna be a tough sell, but it worked for me

Plot: Protagonists enter into separate wagers that result in marriage of (inadvertent) convenience

Overall: I don’t want to have this argument with Holly again
