Review: All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan (2016)

Devil’s Rock, Book #1

Heat Factor: Their attraction is very physical, and the sex is animalistic (rawr!)

Character Chemistry: They give each other spidey senses, but, like, in a hot-for-you way

Plot: Convict meets nurse volunteering at the prison, rescues her, is released, and much should-they-shouldn’t-they angst ensues

Overall: It fills a specific desire and is written (pretty well) accordingly

Review: The Duke Effect by Sophie Jordan (2020)

The Rogue Files, Book 7

Heat Factor: It didn’t get cracking until about 50% of the way through the book and then it was just nothing to inferno in about one chapter.

Character Chemistry: They’re both a bit straight-laced but with this undercurrent of rebelliousness and it works.

Plot: Nora trained extensively under the tutelage of her now-deceased physician father and has become a talented healer who corresponds with those in need of help under her father’s name in secret. The soon-to-be Duke of Birchwood seeks Dr. Langley’s help only to find out about Nora’s deceit. Desperate to right herself in his eyes and save her reputation, she pushes Constantine to allow her to help him, and then they get all hot and bothered and so will you.

Overall: I was SO CLOSE to writing this one off and then I hit 50% of the way through it and hooooo buddy…Sophie Jordan just lit the whole thing on fire.

Anthology Review: How the Dukes Stole Christmas (2018)

Heat Factor: Hot cocoa level heat – not the burn-your-mouth kind, either

Character Chemistry: Three of four stories have insta-love and…it works okay

Plot: Connecting thread is terrible love inducing shortbread

Overall: MacLean’s snowflake scene is one of the most romantic ever. The rest is fine.
