“I loved being swept away by all the many characters that Max portrays in his role as Mr. Romance.”
~ Under the Covers

MISTER ROMANCE was surprisingly sweet.  For a book that features a male escort, this was done in a very classy way.  The trope of a journalist wanting to do a piece on an escort is not new, but I liked how Ms. Rayven made Mr. Romance all about the fantasy and… well… the romance.  He doesn’t have sex with his clients but just fulfills that need and desire to feel special.  There was something really sweet about what he does that somehow made me look past his choice of careers.

In terms of the characters, I liked them ok.  Although neither Max nor Eden are stand out characters for me, I thought they were still enjoyable to read about.  Eden is quite cynical and I liked that about her character.  I don’t think I bought the fast fall into love that we see here after just a few dates with Mr. Romance.  I was expecting her to be a tougher one to crack considering her previous choices in that department.

Of course we have a twist in the end as to why Max ends up in the situation he is now and why he does what he does.  I had a tougher time buying into the whole story .

Overall, I loved being swept away by all the many characters that Max portrays in his role as Mr. Romance.  There was something magical about that even when you knew where the gimmick was.  It was a fun read and I’ll be on the lookout for the next.

About Leisa Rayven

Writing has always been a passion for Leisa, and even though she originally intended to be an actress, it wasn’t long into her time at drama school that she began writing plays.

Those plays were bad. Very bad. Well, her friends thought they were good, but that’s because they were always cast in them and any opportunity to be on stage was met with an obnoxious amount of enthusiasm.

Since then, she’s honed her craft, and several of her plays have been produced and toured throughout Australia.

These days, playwriting has given way to fiction writing, and Leisa’s debut novel, BAD ROMEO, will be available in a worldwide release through Macmillan Publishing in December 2014.

Leisa lives in Australia with her husband, two little boys, three cats, and a kangaroo named Howard.

(Howard may or may not be her imaginary marsupial friend. Everyone should have one.)

I’m a 32 sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

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.
