I am of mixed thoughts on Frozen. I was quite excited to start it because stranded together is one of my favorite Romance tropes. But then once it’s revealed what Erik’s curse was, I was ready to throw it across the room, because it’s like Romance authors can’t think of any other kind of curse for a Paranormal Romance. Then again, Olivia starts thinking logically about Erik’s curse, what it means, and is generally just not willing it to take it. I was like…woah. The plot still went in the predictable route, but I felt better about it because the author actually examines it and doesn’t just let it be accepted.
Sugar Rush was super, duper cute but quite light on the romance. Dulcie’s family’s chocolate shop is struggling. Her grandmother and mother had opened it, but after her mother died, Dulcie’s grandmother won’t step inside. It’s up to Dulcie to keep it running while also working toward her Master’s degree. The best way to get some peace of mind would be to win an upcoming chocolatier’s competition where the grand prize is $50,000. Well, Nick also wants to win that competition to prove to his father that he’s ready to take over the family business. And Nick wants Dulcie despite the family feud.

Encounter was pretty fun, but it ended right when the action was starting! Josh and Ricky are best friends and run a website with a couple of other friends. Their site focuses on debunking the myth of crop circles, by creating their own on local farms and documenting the process. In order to up their game, Josh begins filming them as they create the crop circles, since photos are easily faked. They’ve also gained the attention of an intern who’s studying crop circles and why people are so ready to believe it’s aliens. But when they finish their most elaborate design yet, something strange happens.

Monster in My Closet was so freaking fun! It has the right balance of silly and dark. When it starts, Zoey is being reunited with Maurice, the monster who lived in her closet as a child. Of course, Zoey thinks he was just part of her childhood imagination, but soon learns that her mother did indeed allow him to live with them before she disappeared. Maurice cooks, cleans, and generally takes care of Zoey, so she lets him stay. Then other supernatural creatures start showing up, Zoey learns that she’s an empath, and she’s being stalked by a sex demon. Needless to say, her life just got infinitely more complicated.
