Review: A Royal Disaster by Jennifer Bonds (2020)

Heat Factor: I did a text search and confirm sex but as to quality I cannot say

Character Chemistry: It was good, but I should have been more invested by the time I DNFed in order to make it really click

Plot: He’s the heir with overbearing parents and political problems blah, blah, blah; she’s the clumsy commoner who’s a breath of fresh air but could never really be with him blah, blah, blah

Review: The Dragon Prince of Alaska by Elva Birch (2020)

Royal Dragons of Alaska, Book #1

Heat Factor: The most G-rated non-closed-door sex I’ve ever read: 100% implied, 0% explicit

Character Chemistry: They unreservedly lean on each other for support, which is really lovely

Plot: Threats to her! Threats to the monarchy! Threats all around!

Overall: This would have been A-level reading if the protagonists weren’t TSTL. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series.
