Review: Promising Love by Sara Ohlin (2021)

Rescue Me, Book #3

Heat Factor: It’s pretty steamy. There’s a lot of whoopie going on.

Character Chemistry: They start out, without exaggeration, from the first page.

Plot: Lachlan has been in love with Ruby since he was 12—and when she finally makes a move, he jumps to conclusions while also dealing with shady happenings in the neighborhood.

Overall: I don’t think it’s a grumpy/sunshine, and I am gobsmacked to say that I think I don’t like flowery talk in my romance novels?

Series Review: Hidden Sins by Katee Robert (2017)

Heat Factor: It’s more focused on the crime drama than on the sexy sex

Character Chemistry: “I’m attracted to you and also we’re going through some intense things.”

Plot: Murder most foul! (Why else would the BAU be in a small town romancing the locals?)

Overall: Pretty satisfying romantic suspense

Review: Uncharted by Adriana Anders (2021)

Survival Instincts, Book #2

Review of Survival Instincts, Book #1

Heat Factor: → The best way to get warm in the woods is to climb into a sleeping bag naked with another naked person already inside it.

Character Chemistry: I’m kind of stuck on: they’re on a chemical high from running for their lives for days on end. But sure, forever love, absolutely.

Plot: Baddies are still after the mysterious virus. This time Leo, pilot, and Elias, mysterious recluse, are running for their lives (and to save the world?)

Overall: The show-stealer is Amka, the Alaskan wilderness octogenarian lesbian badass.

Review: Unsuspecting Target by Juno Rushdan (2021)

Hard Core Justice, Book #5

Heat Factor: They both definitely want it (a lot) but when they finally have time to hop in the shower we jump to the next scene.

Character Chemistry: They get over the past really quickly, but that’s because they’re soulmates, obviously

Plot: The cartel has issued a kill order on an innocent woman as a blood debt, and her ex (who has special skills, as one does) rushes back into her life to protect her

Overall: If you want to read an OTT action movie (or show) this is that

Review: Whiteout by Adriana Anders (2020)

Survival Instincts, #1

Heat Factor: There’s only one sleeping bag! 

But most of the heat comes from kisses because it’s too cold to actually remove clothing. (Don’t worry! There’s still danger banging!)

Character Chemistry: It’s amazing what stripping away everything but survival will do for a couple. 

Plot: Trek across Antarctica in the winter while being chased by scary bad guys. 

Overall: Starts with a bang, ends with…less of a bang.
