Review: Heartbreak for Hire by Sonia Hartl (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s a pretty juicy one

Character Chemistry: They’re an instant connection that kind of shifts and evolves over time

Plot: Brinkley is working semi-undercover as a Heartbreaker—she goes out and exacts revenge on men who are wronging women. She ends up flunking a mark (who is named Mark!) and is shocked to discover that Mark is hired to be her new trainee…but everyone is lying and it’s a real mess.

Holidays with the Wongs, Book #3

Review of Holidays with the Wongs, Book #1

Heat Factor: Oops! We kissed in the ice skating forest, so now we should probably also have all the sex…just to get it out of our system, of course

Character Chemistry: Apparently I’m a sucker for the best friends-but-one’s-secretly-in-love trope
