Review: The Sidekick and the Supervillain by S.E. White (2022)

Super Love, Book #1

Heat Factor: Some under-the-tablecloth-at-a-restaurant shenanigans

Character Chemistry: “I shouldn’t like you but I doooooooo”

Plot: The Evil Bane recognizes Michaela as the Amiable Accomplice when he comes into urgent care. He doesn’t reveal her secret identity, but he does ask her out on a date.

Overall: Fun premise, clunky writing

Review: Dance with the Devil by Kit Rocha (2022)

Mercenary Librarians, Book #3

Reviews of Mercenary Librarians, Book #1 and Book #2

Heat Factor: Hot enough

Character Chemistry: Dani and Rafe have had electric, elemental chemistry from the beginning of the series

Plot: Overthrowing an evil corporation and reinstating democracy, no big deal

Overall: I was honestly more invested in the dystopia plot than the romance

Review: The Executive Office Series by Tal Bauer (2016-2017)

Heat Factor: It is a not insubstantial amount of soul-searing lovemaking

Character Chemistry: OMG, I was so invested

Plot: There’s a global conspiracy to burn down the world, and the US president and his secret service detail lead find themselves right in the middle of it

Overall: The three primary books are a total of 52 hours and 48 minutes in audio plus there’s a 200 page holiday interlude story as well, and I devoured them all in 5 days. What even is sleep?

Review: The Devil You Know by Kit Rocha (2021)

Mercenary Librarians, Book #2

Review of Mercenary Librarians, Book #1

Heat Factor: Maya is frequently overwhelmed by sensory experiences, so this is a slow burn as she and Gray work up to physical touch

Character Chemistry: Really supportive of each other but also let’s not get too close because Gray could drop dead at any minute

Plot: We’re tying to make this dystopian reality a better place

Overall: Really fantastic worldbuilding
