“Read it because it’s Trent and Rachel…nuff said.” ~Under the Covers
For now, this short story is only available on Sony eReader. If you don’t have a Sony eReader then you can still get it by downloading the Sony eReader app here. You don’t need an account,when you download the app, the ebook is preloaded.
TROUBLE ON RESERVE claims to take place between A PERFECT BLOOD and EVER AFTER (which is why it’s labeled as 10.5) however please be warned that it really seems to take place either during or even AFTER EVER AFTER. Reference is made to things that happen in that book and unless you want to be spoiled (not much, but it’s there) then I would recommend reading this after you read the next upcoming book in January. I will keep my review spoiler free.
This story basically gives us a small glimpse into the interactions between Trent and Rachel. That’s all there is to this story. It’s their connection, them coming together, working together, and facing danger together. And maybe starting to show how they truly feel about one another, how much they care.
As this series is slowly coming to a close, we are seeing more and more a vulnerable side of Trent. And I just love that! He wants to be good but sometimes he’s forced to be bad. Like when he takes Rachel on a job without telling her what he was really doing there and all hell breaks loose, of course.
Rachel has grown a lot and matured, but it was also nice to see her so sure of herself and her ability to protect Trent. Not to mention the action. These two can always get into trouble.
I really don’t know how this would work as a standalone if you didn’t know anything about The Hollows world, but in general, this series is not one that I would ever recommend reading out of order. These books are jammed packed with information and so many things happen and change from one book to the next that I feel it would certainly but a dent in your full enjoyment.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me) and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
