Review: Seducing the Billionaire by Allie Winters (2021)

Bishop Brothers, Book #3

Review of Bishop Brothers #1, Bishop Brothers #2

Heat Factor: The sex is very complicated on account of the power dynamics and the lies

Character Chemistry: I bought it

Plot: Emma is a plant in Connor’s office, so she’s a lying liar. Connor is just a billionaire trying not to bone his employee and failing. Can you guess what happens next?

Overall: My HR brain was screaming, but also somehow I was shockingly sympathetic to these protagonists.

Review: Bombshell by Sarah MacLean (2021)

Hell’s Bells, Book #1

Heat Factor: He really likes to go down on her.

Character Chemistry: It started before the book, so there’s not a ton of buildup.

Plot: She’s in an extralegal girl gang, he’s got dark secrets, being together isn’t going to work, but everything swirling around them connects them. As does sex.

Overall: There’s a lot in this book that should be more prevalent in historical romance.

Review: Duke of Sin by Elizabeth Hoyt (2016)

Maiden Lane, #10

Heat Factor: Val shows off his splendid physique

Character Chemistry: Even though there is a *serious* power imbalance between these two, it doesn’t *feel* like there is.

Plot: Val is the literal worst. Bridget is his housekeeper.

Overall: I finally understand the appeal of morality chain romances, because I loved every single minute of this book.

Review: Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas (2021)

The Ravenels, Book #7 

(a.k.a. The Wallflowers, The Next Generation, Book #3) 

(a.k.a. The Devil in Winter Epilogues, also Book #3)

Erin’s reviewed the whole Ravenels series: Book #1 | Book #2 | Book #3 | Book #4 | Book #5 | Book #6

Heat Factor: These are some horny Victorians

Character Chemistry: It’s totally insta-love, and it was written lucidly enough that it worked for me

Plot: “We’ll never work because of an unequal match” + “Why is someone trying to murder me?”

Overall: I re-upped my membership in the Bad Decisions Book Club for this one and read it in one sitting. No regrets.

Review: Mistletoe and Mr. Right by Sarah Morgenthaler (2020)

Moose Springs, Alaska, Book #2

Review of Moose Springs Alaska, Book #1

Heat Factor: It was extremely ambiguous until they finally did go all the way because they were constantly fooling around but then the door closed

Character Chemistry: 🌲🌲🌲 (that’s pining, FYI)

Plot: Lana wants to save Moose Springs but ultimately answers to her family’s conglomerate. Rick is a local business owner trying to make ends meet with an uncomfortable crush on his new landlord.

Overall: aww
