Is this what the world is like now? Is this the new normal?
M.J. Edward’s third book is finally here, the sequel to Kissing the Coronavirus. And it’s exactly what you’d expect.
There’s a lot to unpack here, so before we get started sharing some choice quotes from this book, let me give you a basic plot run down.
Kissing the Coronavirus 2: The Second Wave (a great title, might I add) follows Dr. Kelly Cauldron, an orthodontist who is now forced to administer vaccines. She works long hours, with unrealistic expectations, and her sex life is taking a hit because of it. That is, until something goes wrong when she gives the vaccine to a patient who already had received it.
If you’ve read Kissing the Coronavirus, you might be able to guess what happens after that. Only this time, the smut is with both the virus and the cure.

Review in a Nutshell: Serpent & Dove was one of my favorite releases of 2019, and while I really enjoyed Blood & Honey, it did get hit by the second-book-slump.

Blood & Honey is the second book in the Serpent & Dove trilogy. This series was extended from a duology to a trilogy, and I kind of wish it stayed as a duology.
