I loved this book, it had all my favourite elements of a fantastic romance novel ~ Under the Covers

Emmanuelle Holmes never really expected to see Jacob “Deck” Decker again after her best friend broke his heart almost a decade a go; breaking hers in the process. And although she may have changed, going from ugly duckling to swan, when she accidentally runs into him, she sees he is still just as handsome and just as interesting as ever. When Deck sees Emmy again for the first time in years he is determined to have her back in his life, she is the one things he misses about his ex and after shutting her out before and hurting her before, he is now never going to let her go.

A couple of things I have learnt from this books, number one, no matter how many times I see it I am never going to be able to spell kalidescope…kaleidescope…kalidescope…damnit, just thank goodness for spell check! Second, I am pretty sure Kristen Ashley has planted some kind of devices in her books so that she can sneak into my head and take over, or my other theory; she lines her books with crack. Because I am addicted. I went on a massive Rock Chick binge after this as I needed some more Kristen Ashley alpha male goodness and one book just wasn’t enough…see, total domination.

Any who, mind control aside, I loved this book, it had all my favourite elements of a fantastic romance novel; plain Jane transforming in to a bombshell, sexy alpha hero who gets all sexy and growly, some smokin’ hot sex and enough sweet moments to keep my teeth aching. All this, wrapped up in Kristen Ashley’s unique way of telling a story, I loved it. There was also a small, as in teeny tiny, suspense plot going on in the background, but mostly this was about Emme and Jacob reconnecting and getting to where they have always belonged, together.

There were also some familiar faces in this book as we get to pop in and check up on some previous couple, especially Chace and Faye. I love this element of the books, it is like slipping back in with some old friends, everything is warm and familiar.

This was another great book by Kristen Ashley, it was romantic and it was sexy and I now really can’t wait to read that next book she brings out, I just hope I can actually spell the title of it, it makes it much easier to recommend!

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?
