I have to admit, this is the first time I have featured a blog that was run by more than one person and I’m genuinely really excited to do so now. I imagine it’s an incredibly rewarding experience to blog with close friends. Admittedly, I’m somewhat jealous of Holly, Erin, and Ingrid @ Smut Report. All in their 30s, these three women have been swapping romance novels back and forth for a long, long time. And now they’ve taken to blogging so they can share a love for romance with the rest of the world.

Now, one of the coolest features to their blog is the fact that not only do they review, but they have what they refer to as “dueling reviews.” Basically, this means that for one book and one post, readers get two differing reviews. Honestly, it’s one of the more brilliant ways to review that I’ve ever seen.

marrying winterborneFor today’s review, I decided to feature the dueling review for Lisa Kleypas’ Marrying Winterborne. I have not read it, but I have read Kleypas before as a friend of mine in college really enjoyed her work and lent several of her books to me when we were living together. Not only do you get different points of view on this book from Holly and Erin, but it’s genuinely a fun review to read.

Holly’s Take

Heat Factor: If you’re into the whole dynamic where a shy virgin teaches a sexually experienced hero how to “make love” with her magical vagina, then it’s pretty sexy

Character Chemistry: Please ignore Helen’s personality transplant

Plot: High melodrama thanks to a ridiculous and honestly unnecessary plot device

Overall: SO DISAPPOINTING. This is the book that made me give up on Lisa Kleypas
Erin’s Take

Heat Factor: There are a couple of sex scenes, but it’s mostly angsty pining

Character Chemistry: They don’t spend a great deal of time together, but somehow I still felt they had great chemistry

Plot: Angsty unworthiness and unsolicited advice all around!

Overall: LOVED IT. Kleypas heroes are basically my kryptonite, and Winterborne was no exception.
