Plot: She’s trying to avoid being lobotomized because she has feelings, he’s trying to hunt down a serial killer, they’re fated mates

Dueling Review: Your Dad Will Do by Katee Robert (2020)

Erin made us buddy read Your Dad Will Do because she likes to make Ingrid uncomfortable. Which means it’s that time again: time for a dueling review!

A Touch of Taboo, Book 1

Let’s start by each giving our metric for rating the book: 

Erin:

Heat Factor: It’s … imaginative

Character Chemistry: Indisputably they have sexual chemistry

Plot: She found her fiance cheating, so she gets back at him by making a move on his dad

Overall: Well it’s definitely hot, but the interpersonal dynamics are…concerning

Holly:

Heat Factor: Yup, it’s sexy. And they like being watched, so the reader-voyeur is helping make it sexier. 

Character Chemistry: I am so glad that they each found another person who shares their kinks! 

Plot: Revenge sex turns to love

Overall: If you like Daddy Kink and Sexy Sex, read this book! It’s well written. If you don’t like those things, then don’t read this book, because the entire plot is sexy sex. 

Ingrid: 

Heat Factor: I mean, it’s pretty much entirely written to BE hot from start to finish

Character Chemistry: They definitely seem like peanut butter and jelly in the bedroom

Plot: She starts out seeking a revenge hookup with her ex-fiance’s dad and ends up in a whole thing

Overall: If you like daddy/kinky/revenge sex this is probably right up your alley.
