Review: Lick by Kylie Scott (2013)

Stage Dive, Book #1

Heat Factor: The title refers to music, not a bedroom activity, but the bedroom activity is sexy

Character Chemistry: Great

Plot: 21-year-old celebrating her birthday in Vegas wakes up married to a rock star

Overall: This book is exceptional

Review: Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers (2021)

Heat Factor: Not quite fade to black, but the sex writing is more focused on the emotions than the mechanics

Character Chemistry: Veering into insta-love territory; maybe it’s fate

Plot: Grace has an identity crisis

Overall: Messy and beautiful

Review: Marrying the Billionaire by Allie Winters (2021)

The Bishop Brothers, Book #2

Review of The Bishop Brothers, Book #1

Heat Factor: Considering how much they’re into each other, it’s a pretty slow burn (but with some intermediate stuff going on)

Character Chemistry: I was a little worried because Serena started out determined to show Archer how much she’s worth marrying, but they sorted themselves out

Plot: Serena was supposed to marry Archer’s brother in book one but ended up jilted at the altar, so Archer stepped in to save the day and the business deal

Overall: This book was very chill (except I wanted to rage at Archer’s dad), but also very awesome

Series Review: Forever Eve and After Eve by J.B. Lexington (2020)

Heat Factor:  Very steamy. Extremely steamy. Lots of moments containing steam.

Character Chemistry: We have ourselves here a duet (please say trilogy) of books starting with a lovely dose of fated mates and proceeding right on into “seducing my spouse” so I’d say it’s meant to be and meant to stick.

Plot: We start with Izabel’s marriage to Bo, and a whole fleet of waving red flags. As Izabel struggles to understand what’s going terribly wrong in her marriage, she ends up seeing a hypnotherapist specializing in past life regression therapy. Things go nuts. That’s book one. Then on with the second book and my poor heart…

Overall: This duet was really pretty great–extremely sexy with a really creative execution and likeable characters. I’m including a few trigger warnings for violence against women.

Review: Ever After Always by Chloe Liese (2021)

Bergman Brothers, Book #3

Review of Bergman Brothers, Book 1

Heat Factor: There’s some pining and petting in the middle and some sex at the end

Character Chemistry: These guys love each other so much they lie by omission to protect the other party. Like, a lot. 

Plot: Aiden and Freya are having a tough time. But they also really want to fix what’s going on, so they put in the hard work to make their marriage stronger. 

Overall: I really wanted to like this book. Everything sounds great on paper. But I didn’t get that serotonin boost that I’m looking for when I got to the HEA.
