Review: Hookup State of Mind by Becca Morgan and Amelia J. Rose (2021)

Heat Factor: I would call this one moderately hot (but satisfying!)

Character Chemistry: I loved these two together–kind of salty and sweet, earnest and slightly sarcastic.

Plot: Cleo is an actress slash nanny who is FINALLY getting her shot at a mini series. At the location, she gets a hankering for a hookup and ends up meeting Dean, who is a really genuine and sweet guy she can’t seem to get enough of. BUT THEN they discover that Cleo is actually Dean’s little brother’s nanny, and that throws a big old wrench in things…

Overall: This was enjoyable and funny, although it did pass up on playing out some tension I would have very much liked to see.

Magic in Manhattan, Book #2

Review of Magic in Manhattan, Book #1

Heat Factor: They have some great conversations, but then it’s fade to black

Character Chemistry: “We haven’t discussed the particulars of our relationship, so I shouldn’t feel jealous and possessive, but I dooooooooooooooo!”

Plot: The second act adds to the drama and the relationship angst

Overall: If you haven’t read Spellbound, go back and start there. If you have, what are you waiting for?!

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

Overall: I was so optimistic about having a fun fake relationship comfort read but I really just cannot deal with this one

Review: Indigo by Beverly Jenkins (1996)

Heat Factor: It’s pretty steamy for a reasonably standard old school historical romance 

Character Chemistry: Galen makes Hester feel things. He also thinks she’s arresting.

Plot: Slave catchers are roving around, looking for our protagonists, in antebellum Michigan

Overall: The work this book does is really something special
