Review: A Taste of Honey by Rose Lerner (2017)

Lively St. Lemeston, Book 4

Heat Factor: There are 9 chapters and they have sex 7 times

Character Chemistry: They are both making sacrifices for the other, “Gift of the Magi” style. 

Plot: Betsy decides to seduce her boss, because it’s time for something to happen. 

Overall: This was exactly the book I needed in the moment I read it. It’s short, sexy, fun, and thoughtful.

Review: A Billion Times No by Kenzie Reed (2019)

Fake It Till You Make It, Book #1

Heat Factor: Sure, I guess 

Character Chemistry: Emotional chemistry? I’m not even convinced they had sexual chemistry.

Plot: Woman goes home for vacation, boss follows, and nobody talks to anybody about anything important so everything hits the fan

Overall: I finished this to satisfy my rage and for no other reason

Review: You, Me and the Sea by Elizabeth Haynes (2021)

Heat Factor: Think “roaring fire in a simple wood cabin” and you’ll have it

Character Chemistry: It’s like a healthy dose of sexual healing along with some blustery island magic

Plot: Two emotionally immobilized people find themselves on a misty Scottish island filled with birds and combust, and aren’t ever the same again.

Overall: This book just completely blew up my week because it was so incredibly good and I have not been okay since.

Series Review

Review: Chronicles of a Dancing Heart Duo by Olivia Boothe

Heat Factor: Lots of peppers (and a tad of pepper spray perhaps?)

Character Chemistry: It overpowers all reason and sanity, I think

Plot: Sara was a promising student at Julliard when her whole life fell apart. Four years later, she sees a tall, wealthy, handsome man and they immediately get tangled up in a super intense, emotionally-explosive relationship with a lot of serious issues and roadblocks to happiness

Overall: This book is going to be like catnip for a VERY niche audience–if you thought Gossip Girl was the best, most romantic show around, this might be for you. If your favorite summer memories of love look like they came straight out of an episode of Jersey Shore, this might be for you. If you’ve ever heard that Sex and the City actually modeled fairly unhealthy female friendships and you thought “huh?”, this might be for you.
