~QD Heat~
Sex/kink type: penetrative, oral
Possible triggers: non consensual physical encounters, abandonment by parent, mention of cancer

A beautifully written novel that contains some pretty heavy subject matter like consent, self-worth, mental health, abandonment, sex work… but all organically woven into a story that is as compelling and heart warming as it is steamy and fun to read. Totally worth all the hype it’s been receiving! Go get yourself a copy. 💗

PS: I’m sooooo so sooooo in love with the fact that Michael is half Vietnamese/half Caucasian. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a character with my same background and caught myself chuckling in recognition at the things that Michael’s family did or said. And I already called my mom to ask for a big ‘ol pot of bun rieu! 🤤
