Dueling Review: Priest by Sierra Simone (2015)

If Holly were to review this book, she would call it a Recommended Read. If Ingrid were to review this book, she would write a Rant. Clearly, we needed to review this book together.

Welcome to Dueling Reviews.

Moderated by Erin, who has no emotional investment in this book at all.

Ingrid’s Take:

Heat Factor: It’s scorching…which is fitting, because with the stuff these two pulled in a Catholic church they may very well end up somewhere toasty.

Character Chemistry: I don’t dig what they dig…but they dig it, and each other, a LOT.

Plot: Catholic priest ends up attracted to a woman who is apparently irresistible but has no hobbies or interests or personality and they end up finding a new, sexy spiritual path together.

Overall: This book has some majorly interesting dynamics but I had to put it down out of sheer frustration many times (and not the FUN kind of frustration, either).

Holly’s Take:

Heat Factor: Absolutely filthy, in the best way

Character Chemistry: Father Bell would have chemistry with a cardboard box

Plot: Catholic priest has sex, angst ensues

Overall: I had so much fun reading this book

Grade-A Beefcakes, Book 1

Heat Factor: Two dicks for the price of one!

Character Chemistry: She is The One. Our boners tell us so. 

Plot: Calling it a plot is a stretch.

Overall: This is an erotic romance about two men who share a woman, and leave the curtains open as they do the deed in the living room.

Review: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (2011)

All Souls Trilogy, Book 1

Heat Factor: Heavy petting occurs, but I’m not convinced it’s sexy

Character Chemistry: Nah

Plot: Paranormal romance meets The DaVinci Code meets magic coming of age novel where a witch learns to control her powers

Overall: I finished this only through sheer stubbornness

Review: Not Quite Over You by Susan Mallery (2018)

Happily Inc, Book 4

Heat Factor: One very detailed sex scene at about 30%. Everything else is closed door.

Character Chemistry: It’s fine.

Plot: Stuff happens, but I wouldn’t say there’s an overarching narrative arc.

Overall: Sweet but not all that impactful.
