I’m very impressed with Carlson’s ability to create such a well-rounded story, full of emotions, sexual tension and action in such a tight word count. If this is any indication of what the other books in the series will be like, then you definitely don’t want to miss out! ~ Under the Covers

In this novella by Amanda Carlson for the Sin City Collectors series, we meet Nevada Hamilton, a Sin City Collector with a bit of an attitude. She isn’t pleased about her latest assignment, especially since it means she is paired up with the one man she can’t stand.  Sexy hellhound and former lover, Jake Troubadour presents trouble for Neve. But she isn’t going to let that stop her from carrying out her assignment. As they work together, they soon find out that their passion just doesn’t lie between the sheets, but also in their hearts.

I really, really enjoyed this novella from Amanda Carlson. It jumps straight into the action, revealing already well-developed characters with tons of personality. Nevada is slightly prickly, but when paired with Jake, it makes for some really interesting scenes. Their banter is one of my favourite things about the book. The way they bicker and the way they contrast one another is a great way to showcase their individual personalities while also creating some sexual tension with their romance.

For such a short word count, Carlson really made it work and I am thrilled with the end product. There is humor and there is action, two things that you can expect in a Carlson story. However, the twists and turns were a nice surprise and made for an even better ride! I’m very impressed with Carlson’s ability to create such a well-rounded story, full of emotions, sexual tension and action in such a tight word count. If this is any indication of what the other books in the series will be like, then you definitely don’t want to miss out!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
