Hi, my name is Suzanne and I am a Kristen Ashley Addict. ~ Under the Covers

WARNING! This review is completely bias by my fanatical love of Kristen Ashley, if you are looking for a well balanced review…walk on by *starts to hum Dionne Warwick*

Hanna Boudreaux has lived in Willow a small town in Colorado all her life, and she has been in love with Raiden Ulysses Miller for most of that time. But, she soon realizes loving him from afar is futile he will never notice her, she is too shy and boring and although she may never have Raid she comes to the realization she needs to spice her life up a little. When Raid does soon notice Hanna, especially after having to investigate her and he is determined to make her his.

As the warning warned you I am a crazy Kristen Ashley fan, I can’t help it! My theory is that she laces all her books with crack, ‘cos I just inhale them, I can’t stop thinking about them…all that’s on my mind is when I can get my next Kit Fix… I need it in the morning before I can even think of facing the day and I need her mens alpha loving before I can get a wink of sleep at night. Hi, my name is Suzanne and I am a Kristen Ashley Addict. 

Buuut, on to Raid. I loved it (as you may have guessed) it had everything I look for, the sweet and goofy heroine that I can’t help but identify with a little and completely want to steal for a new BFF and her sexy alpha hero, who I can’t help but want to trip and ride to the floor! But also, at the heart of it, it is a sweet romance, that I lap up like a chocolate covered Kane “Tack” Allen, of two soul mates finding each other. The Unfinished Heroes series is supposed to be slightly more erotic than Kristen Ashley’s other series and it is, Raid likes to be in control which is knicker changingly hot experience, but don’t go into Raid expecting an erotic book as although it is sexy, to me it didn’t quite tip the scales to erotic romance.

If you are already a fan of Kit then you will love this book, if you aren’t than get a freaking clue and start reading immediately! I am now waiting impatiently for the her next book!

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
