DON’T CALL HER ANGEL by Cara McKenna

DON’T CALL HER ANGEL by Cara McKenna

Description: Emily, a sweet Georgia blond, and her husband, Rasul, a hard Middle Eastern man, have created a mutually-beneficial, Dom/sub marriage for themselves. Will inviting another man into their bedroom disrupt or further fuel their passion? The Good: This is a really, really, really unusual read. It’s not quite BDSM, but not in any way your run-of-the-mill romance. The narrative is more slice-of-life than straight-forward, and in many ways this story feels more like a character study, with the author digging deeper and deeper into the three people at its center. The sex is written incredibly hot, and I have never read a couple quite like this. I love that they’re both in direct conflict with the way they were raised. If you’re looking for...

Description: When Missy and T.S. are called upon to serve as maid of honor and best man at their best friends’ wedding, they have no idea that sparks will also fly between the two of them.

The Good: I’m a big fan of regular H/Hs with plausible internal conflicts, and this book falls neatly into that category.

Their conflict felt realistic as did their character motivation. Both parties had my full sympathy, and the fact that they are so afraid of love makes it that much sweeter when they fall hard for each...

Description: Best friends and ad execs, Mya and Milo, are fierce competitors in the boardroom, but they’re both nursing secret crushes on each other. Can they change their status from friends to lovers without losing their hearts? The Good: This was a blazing hot, sweet, and funny read. Mya and Milo have serious chemistry between the sheets and in the office. I liked that they were at equal levels in their careers and that their jobs figured so heavily into their love story. I also liked that their lack of communication was fear-based as opposed to convenient-plot-based. And there was a great speech at the end that reminded me that a hot story can be romantic and touching as well. This was a tightly-plotted, well-structured read with excellent dialogue, fun...
