“…this just wasn’t the book for me.”
~ Under the Covers

I wanted to like this.  By God, I did!  I’ve been basically starving for good ol’ paranormal romance and I was so excited that I saw a couple of new series pop up on my radar these months.  But as soon as I opened up this book I got this feeling it wasn’t going to go my way.

It really is nothing against the storyline because it wasn’t half bad.  It wasn’t the writing in itself either.  But first, the characters and their approach rubbed me the wrong way from the beginning and it never let up.  I would find myself rolling my eyes at some of the things that happened or they said.  It wasn’t one in particular, I just didn’t end up liking any of them.  The heroine should’ve been smart and then she would do something stereotypical and dumb, the hero was pushy at times and I would’ve loved to see more layers to his character.  And then the side characters would annoy me as well.  I can’t pin this on one particular thing they did, I just didn’t like being in their head too much or listen to their banter.

That being said, and although I was interested in the plot, the pacing was killing me.  There’s a lot of what felt like filler to me and maybe this goes back to my previous point because if I had been more interested in the characters then maybe I would feel different about this.  But reading this book felt like it dragged for me and I honestly thought several times to just DNF it but I wanted to give it a shot and see if by the end I would change my mind.

Honestly, I’m disappointed in myself that I didn’t like it.  I should’ve, I wanted to.  I tried.  In the end, this just wasn’t the book for me.  And while there are some good points about this (I did manage to finish it after all!) it wasn’t enough to make me want to continue reading the series.

I’m a 30 something 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), run my husband's business from home 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 re-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.
