Review: Unwritten Rules by K.D. Casey (2021)

Heat Factor: I mean, it is technically explicit sex, but it’s done in a vignette style until nearly the end, when it feels much more traditionally written

Character Chemistry: I had big feels, but it was because of Zach’s journey, not because of Zach and Eugenio together

Plot: Baseball players fall in love, but one refuses to come out and things fall apart. Until they get a second chance.

Overall: Y’all. I have just been on a whole emotional roller coaster.

Review: The Brightest Star in Paris by Diana Biller (2021)

Sequel to The Widow of Rose House

Character Chemistry: They really like each other, but are holding back. 

Plot: Amelie has made a safe life for herself and her younger sister—and then Benedict comes back to Paris after twelve years away.

Overall: I really liked this book. A lot.

Review: Bombshell by Sarah MacLean (2021)

Hell’s Bells, Book #1

Heat Factor: He really likes to go down on her.

Character Chemistry: It started before the book, so there’s not a ton of buildup.

Plot: She’s in an extralegal girl gang, he’s got dark secrets, being together isn’t going to work, but everything swirling around them connects them. As does sex.

Overall: There’s a lot in this book that should be more prevalent in historical romance.

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: The Princess Stakes by Amelie Howard (2021)

Heat Factor: There’s a lot of sexual inneundo, and then they get busy on a ballroom terrace. And also in a closet. 

Character Chemistry: They love/hate each other, so they torment each other. 

Plot: Sarani’s on the run after her father’s murder, and ends up on the ship of her first love, who now wants revenge 

Overall: Eh. I found the romance lacking.
