Review: What’s in a Name? by Angela Breen (2020)

Department of Second Chances, Book 1

Heat Factor: Just when I was beginning to suspect it would be no sex… BAM

Character Chemistry: There was so much going on in the suspense plot, the relationship between the protagonists was relatively superficial

Plot: FBI agent + attractive single mother + serial killer

Overall: I’m not entirely sure how to reconcile my feelings about the first half of the book (chilling serial killer drama) with my feelings about the second half of the book (why are these characters so frustrating?)

Review: Trust Fund Fiancé by Naima Simone (2020)

Texas Cattleman’s Club: Rags to Riches, #4

Heat Factor: Deliciously steamy and well written

Character Chemistry: He’s the only one who supports her

Plot: Soapy nonsense

Overall: I would say your enjoyment of this book is pretty dependent on your tolerance for messy protagonists.

Review: Here to Stay by Adriana Herrera (2020)

Heat Factor: It’s bordering on a slow burn, but not TOO slow.

Character Chemistry: There are so many ways these two are complimentary for one another that it’s hard to summarize.

Plot: Julia left NYC with her ex and moved to Dallas only to get dumped and left with a spacious apartment and a new job at a charitable foundation she absolutely loves. However–the consultant hired to take the company affiliated with the foundation public is super dreamy, etc, and it’s a big hot mess because Julia and Rocco want to make a big hot mess with each other while their jobs are on the line. It’s a whole thing. Hard to explain. Better just read it.

Overall: This book was really, really good and I highly recommend it.

Review: The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon (2020)

The Boyfriend Project, Book #1

Heat Factor: Perfectly suited the relationship

Character Chemistry: Usually I don’t miss the uncertainty of new romance, but the joyful comfort between these two made me a bit nostalgic.

Plot: After being catfished, Samiah decides to prioritize working only on her non-romantic life goals. Meanwhile, Daniel is on an undercover assignment to crack a case for the Treasury Department.

Overall: Solid and satisfying
