Heat Factor: They fool around, but the real heat occurs when they start snuggling and the emotions come out.

Character Chemistry: They wrestle like puppies.

Plot: James takes care of Timothy when they’re on the road. He knows that he should send Timothy home now that winter is coming, but he doesn’t want him to leave.

Overall: This was a very interesting book, though I’m not sure I would call it swoonworthy.

Review: The Vendetta Plan by Kryssa James (2022)

Heat Factor: It feels kinda like a slow burn but it’s not TOO slow.

Character Chemistry: At first it’s not very apparent but a hot spring makes things…hot.

Plot: Charlotte gets her hiney handed to her after a brutal break up with a terrible ex…but worse, she nearly lost her long-time best friend, Julien, in the process. They end up going on a road trip—but while HER goal is sweet, sweet revenge, Julien’s is sweet, sweet love. 

Overall: The writing was quite good (I’d read another book by this author in a pitter-pat of a heartbeat). If you’re a Marie Kondo reader, you’ll love this one.
