» “Heat Factor” System

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

steam ratingSo, I’ve decided to add something a little different to my ratings.  I read a lot of New Adult Romances and Erotica and as such sometimes the stories aren’t the best but the hotness factor and yummy steaminess is downright lethal.  Therefore, sometimes I’d like to give it two different ratings.  One for the book itself and the other for the “Heat Factor”.  Hence, I came up with a little different rating to add to the regular one.  I’m sticking with the generic 1-5 system but using  the word ratings you see below. 

{Since doing up my word ratings Ashley has added “Flame Ratings” to the new UBB so I’m using both!}
