Review: Night Hawk by Beverly Jenkins (2011)

Heat Factor: They definitely like the sexytimes, even if they don’t do it all the time

Character Chemistry: I was going to say he’s a tall drink of water and she’s a firecracker, but those metaphors don’t mix well. So. How about: he’s a bottle of Diet Coke, and she’s a Mento

Review: Tramps and Vagabonds by Aster Glenn Gray (2022)

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.
