Review: A Taste of Honey by Rose Lerner (2017)

Lively St. Lemeston, Book 4

Heat Factor: There are 9 chapters and they have sex 7 times

Character Chemistry: They are both making sacrifices for the other, “Gift of the Magi” style. 

Plot: Betsy decides to seduce her boss, because it’s time for something to happen. 

Overall: This was exactly the book I needed in the moment I read it. It’s short, sexy, fun, and thoughtful.

Review: A Reluctant Attraction by Rosanna Leo (2021)

The Handymen, Book #3

Reviews of previous books in The Handymen series: Book #1, Book #2

Heat Factor: It was…delicious.

Character Chemistry: They were soooooo good together in just so many ways which is just how this series is from start to stop.

Plot: Nick takes on the last project for the Handymen TV series after being the subject of a pretty demeaning cyberbullying campaign. The property is owned by Claire, a widow who is in desperate need of a fresh start—and sparks fly almost instantaneously. 

Overall: UGHHH this is such a phenomenal end to the Handymen Series and I loved it so much.

Review: Spellbound by Ophelia Silk (2021)

Heat Factor: Medium-ish heat, tastefully and sweetly done

Character Chemistry: Just so meant to be.

Plot: Two deeply lonely women find themselves thrown together in a deep and scary wood and end up finding themselves (but together)

Overall: This was like a Matryoshka doll of a story–so many details that just kinda stick in your brain and cling in the best way.

Review: You, Me and the Sea by Elizabeth Haynes (2021)

Heat Factor: Think “roaring fire in a simple wood cabin” and you’ll have it

Character Chemistry: It’s like a healthy dose of sexual healing along with some blustery island magic

Plot: Two emotionally immobilized people find themselves on a misty Scottish island filled with birds and combust, and aren’t ever the same again.

Overall: This book just completely blew up my week because it was so incredibly good and I have not been okay since.

Series Review: Forever Eve and After Eve by J.B. Lexington (2020)

Heat Factor:  Very steamy. Extremely steamy. Lots of moments containing steam.

Character Chemistry: We have ourselves here a duet (please say trilogy) of books starting with a lovely dose of fated mates and proceeding right on into “seducing my spouse” so I’d say it’s meant to be and meant to stick.

Plot: We start with Izabel’s marriage to Bo, and a whole fleet of waving red flags. As Izabel struggles to understand what’s going terribly wrong in her marriage, she ends up seeing a hypnotherapist specializing in past life regression therapy. Things go nuts. That’s book one. Then on with the second book and my poor heart…

Overall: This duet was really pretty great–extremely sexy with a really creative execution and likeable characters. I’m including a few trigger warnings for violence against women.
