“It makes my heart swell to see them all so happy.”
~ Under the Covers


When I learned that Mary Calmes was writing another book for Sam and Jory, I literally jumped up and down with excitement. These boys have to be one of my favorites in the genre. You can’t help but love Jory and his hilarious narration. He’s just so endearing, even when he is completely clueless. With Sam, they are the perfect balance and now that they have a family, it makes my heart swell to see them all so happy.

However, that happiness doesn’t last very long because if you’ve followed the series before, then you know that Jory is a trouble magnet. Even though he is his happy-go-lucky and charming self, he still manages to get punched.utc-top-pick

While there is a bit of suspense and mystery, it’s very very light. The threat isn’t very high and the conclusion happens pretty much happens all behind the scenes so while it can be disappointing to some, I didn’t really mind it because there are so many other amazing things that I adore about this book that make up for it.

Sam and Jory are planning to get married. Getting to see them with their kids is just so entertaining. I love how Jory out-smartens his little girl and even how Sam tries to be that mixture of strict Dad and loving father. Duncan and Aaron are in it too so it’s a lovely conclusion to the series. However, if Mary Calmes decides to write more in this series, you definitely won’t hear me complaining!

I’m an 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 write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then 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 planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

    Thanks for the review. I think it is awesome that Mary made this novella free. I can’t wait to read it. Sam and Jory are one of my all time favorite reads. I read that Ian and Miro are in it too, I’m soo looking forward to their next book!
