Sexual tension is something that I miss from books. Where a relationship builds over many books in a series. They don't insta-love, swoon, and jump in bed straight away. I miss that slow, intense burn.
So I mentioned on Monday that I've been drama binging. I've been lucky to watch some good ones. However, the romance in them rarely has sexual tension. My PS Partner has it, but it's a movie. I've been wanting to see it in a TV drama. I Hear Your Voice got really close. But it still had that innocent quality that I do love from dramas, but crave just a bit more from.
Well I'm watching Healer right now, thank you Dana. Just look at this picture.
Isn't the sexual tension just dripping off the screen! Ah! This is just a mild taste. But it is my current desktop wallpaper.
Not to mention that our lovely lead goes after what she wants. If you've been thinking about K-dramas, this is the place to start.
Now here's the books I've been pining after.
The Witches of Cambridge by Menna Van Praag
For fans of Alice Hoffman, Sarah Addison Allen, and Adriana Trigiani, The Witches of Cambridge reveals an astonishing world where the heart's deepest secrets give way to the magic of life-changing love.
"Be careful what you wish for. If you're a witch, you might just get it."
Amandine Bisset has always had the power to feel the emotions of those around her. It's a secret she can share only with her friends all professors, all witches when they gather for the Cambridge University Society of Literature and Witchcraft. Amandine treasures these meetings but lately senses the ties among her colleagues beginning to unravel. If only she had her student Noa's power to hear the innermost thoughts of others, she might know how to patch things up. Unfortunately, Noa regards her gift as a curse. So when a seductive artist claims he can cure her, Noa jumps at the chance, no matter the cost.
Noa's not the only witch in over her head. Mathematics professor Kat has a serious case of unrequited love but refuses to cast spells to win anyone's heart. Her sister, Cosima, is not above using magic to get what she wants, sprinkling pastries in her bakery with equal parts sugar and enchantment. But when Cosima sets her sights on Kat's crush, she conjures up a dangerous love triangle.
As romance and longing swirl through every picturesque side street, The Witches of Cambridge find their lives unexpectedly upended and changed in ways sometimes extraordinary, sometimes heartbreaking, but always enchanting
I'm a sucker for a witch book. This one caught my eye by it's cool cover. This could go either good or bad. But I'm staying positive.Unfinished Muse by R.L. Naquin
Wynter Greene is a chronic quitter—in work, in life, and in love. When she quits a job, a boyfriend, and a seemingly minor craft project all in one day, the dormant deity blood in her veins triggers a Welcome Package from the gods. A talking—and singing—houseplant named Phyllis bullies Wynter into taking a job at the Mt. Olympus Employment Agency.
Stuck with a job in the Muse department, Wynter discovers that helping others finish what they start isn’t easy, especially for someone who can’t seem to finish anything of her own. And how is Wynter supposed to focus on anything when that guy from the Dreams and Nightmares department keeps distracting her with his rippling muscles and magnetic stare?
Wynter needs to figure her job out soon. Each failure is a tick mark on her record, and if she continues to miss her deadlines, she’ll be reassigned to the Underworld as a dog walker.
And scooping poop for a giant three-headed dog is nobody’s ideal career.
Naquin has a new series. That's all I need to hear.
Now excuse me whilst I do a happy dance!
