Review: Spellbound by Allie Therin (2019)

Magic in Manhattan, Book 1

Heat Factor: It’s absolutely fade-to-black, but also Arthur has a whole stern daddy thing going on, which, as we know, I am here for

Character Chemistry: I texted on the group chat: “This Allie Therin paternalistic hero is really doing it for me”

Plot: Young man with magic underestimates/fears his powers until forced to confront his abilities when swirled into magical intrigue by slightly older man

Overall: This book was so marvelous in so many ways that the only downside is that it’s not a standalone.

Review: Paradise Cove by Jenny Holiday (2020)

Matchmaker Bay, Book 2

Heat Factor: The perfect amount of spice – that sweet spot where there’s enough sex so it’s sexy, but not so much sex that it’s erotic romance

Character Chemistry: I absolutely believe that Jake and Nora are best friends. 

Plot: Big City Doctor moves to Small Town, Befriends Local Hermit. With Benefits. But also, this is a story about grief and finding love where you least expect it and letting yourself feel.

Overall: I am an emotional mess and I loved every minute of it.
