Review: Too Good to be Real by Melonie Johnson (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s every Rom Com you’ve ever watched in book form. No, seriously.

Character Chemistry: Of course it’s instantaneous and soul-shaking on a cellular level. Have you never watched a Rom Com?

Plot: Julia the journalist is facing layoffs at the office–so she proposes an article reviewing a resort specialising in providing that sweeping Rom Com experience.

Review: Perfect Temptation by K.B. Alan (2021)

Perfect Fit, Book #4

Review: Beach Read by Emily Henry (2020)

Heat Factor: I was expecting chick-lit level steam (so not much), and I was wrong

Character Chemistry: When it’s good, it’s good. When they’re struggling, I wanted to SCREAM.

Plot: She’s having a quarter life crisis. He’s a tortured soul. They’re both writers and neighbors on the lake in Michigan.

Overall: I am seriously not on board with January assuring Gus that she’ll stick through the messiness when Gus is scared to try a relationship and then immediately bailing in a meltdown when things get messy. Seriously. Not.
