Jump Then Fall by Sarah Sanders



⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


An unabashed, unapologetic romance with lots and lots of sizzling, superhot sex. Yummy!

Ika and Ree work in a multinational organisation and meet in an office getaway. Neither knows who the other is but are drawn to each other.

We don’t want to write more about the storyline because it is so worth a read. The chemistry between the two MCs is outstanding. The author reveals the personalities of each of the two via dialogues instead of telling and describing them too much.

There are a large number of excellent sex scenes each one helping in developing the relationship. This one is all about relationship development and the beautiful handling of different personalities by partners in a relationship.

It is interesting to see how the author deals with age-gap, body image and difficulties in emotional intimacy. Without making it the focus of the romance swimming along breezily (with a lot of sexy times), the author brings up and deals with the more serious issues of a relationship with sensitivty, love and tenderness.

The book has our favourite tropes: insta-love and an aggressive, dominant, femme bottom.

Definitely recommended.

Fine or Punishment (Twist of Fate #1) by Mira Margrave

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆


Funny, highly entertaining and short (okay, at 31,500 words it is more than a novella but not quite a full-length novel) – this book is absolutely great.

Violet Weston is the head librarian in a smallish town. One dark and stormy night (not quite a plot point, but we just wanted to write this phrase somewhere :P) she has plans to live out her dark domme librarian fantasy and has arranged for an escort. Candace Kane is new to the town and in her shifting-unpacking chaos is late in returning books she’d borrowed from the library and choose the stormy night to do so.

The first scene beggars belief, but is the perfect opening for this thoroughly madcap romcom. Both the MCs are terribly attractive but Candace has the scales tipping in her favour for the limericks she writes.

This one is so, so recommended.

Finding Sky by Cass Sellars

⭐⭐☆

Plenty of tropes in this one: office romance; boss - employee; rich girl – poor girl; serial dater – relationship burnt therefore relationship shy.

Jess Ivan is the owner of Ivan Associates (IA), a company started by her father. The organisation has a mission of giving back to the community and doing good – an ideal that does not completely jell with outside partners and maybe even some employees. Skylar Addison is the new accounting manager in IA, a position she’d applied for thrice before she got called for an interview. Skylar is intelligent, dedicated and thorough. While going through the invoices she discovers that something doesn’t add up and follows that to find out what.

This is a middle-of-the-road romance with a lot of focus on the mad attraction between the MCs. Jess, unfortunately, comes across as spoilt, entitled and careless. In the beginning, Jess is involved with Whitney without feeling anything for her. So essentially Jess is leading Whitney on and using her for sex. Reason enough for us to dislike her instantly. Also, she just doesn’t seem to be either supportive or appreciative of Skylar’s work and efforts. When Skylar first brings up the discrepancies, Jess doesn’t seem to take it seriously enough. In fact, towards the second half of the book, when there is a conflict between the two and Skylar is explaining things she’s uncovered, all Jess can think of is the sexual attraction she is feeling for Skylar. That is not particularly appreciative of Skylar’s efforts or respect for her work. So Jess is quite a fail as a person and an MC. While their HEA seems questionable, the fact that Skylar has a not-so-great past makes it seem like they might last. Plus Skylar shows assertiveness in strong, positive ways. So she works as a MC you can root for.

We’d quite liked Unexpected Lightening by this author and were hoping for more of the great chemistry, sex and intrigue – but this one is more a miss than a hit.
