Review: Hot Rabbi by Aviva Blakeman (2020)

Heat Factor: They have sex (a good bit of it), but it was more focused on the emotional connection and the kissing and touching than on the arousal and orgasms

Character Chemistry: Just because there’s an instant connection and attraction doesn’t mean it’s all smooth sailing from there!

Plot: Shoshana has a lot of emotional baggage associated with the synagogue. New hot rabbi single parent David would like to date her. 

Overall: This story has a lot of good energy. Definitely a good one for people who like their protagonists to be checked in and thoughtful.

Review: Rebel Hard by Nalini Singh (2018)

Hard Play, Book #2

Review of Hard Play, Book #1, Book #3

Heat Factor: OMG! They’re both virgins!!! Love it!

Character Chemistry: If my LI frowned and told me that something I described as romantic wasn’t romantic, it was simply a spouse listening to a spouse’s needs and taking care of them, I would be like, “Let’s just schedule that wedding right now, then, so you can start taking care of me.

Plot: Nayna is really going through a quarter-life crisis. Raj is hoping he can hang on for the ride.

Overall: The (everyday) romance of this book is AMAZING

Review: Counting Down with You by Tashie Bhuiyan (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s a lovely warm–first bloom of love and all that. 

Character Chemistry: At first glance they’re opposites attracting but then it turns out they’re actually quite similar. 

Plot: Karina (Myra) is a second generation Bangladeshi teenager dealing with a lot of pressure to succeed within a very narrow set of parameters. When she’s asked to tutor Ace, the school “bad boy”, she’s initially horrified–but she soon discovers that they have way more in common than she thinks…

Overall: This book is actually achingly sweet. It’s a Young Adult, so you’re in for some major teen angst, but in this case that angst is pretty understandable.

Review: Blood & Ash by Deborah Wilde (2020)

The Jezebel Files, Book #1 

Heat Factor: This is some drawn out will they/won’t they business

Character Chemistry: I want them together soooooooooooo badly

Plot: It’s super involved: abductions and political machinations and self-discovery and mysteries to solve

Overall: So it was super fun, but also I do not want to have this relationship business dragged out for four books
