“Taken as a whole I found Check Me Out a little disappointing and forgettable.”
~ Under the Covers

There are two very important things in Greta’s life: being a librarian and her best friend Will. And now, Mac, the beautiful man she met in the library who seems to say all the right things…over text. When Greta’s beloved library becomes endangered though, it isn’t Mac who seems to be standing by her side…it’s Will.

I always struggle writing a quick blurb, which is why you may notice that I sometimes cheat and don’t do it… For this one though I have spent a good ten minutes trying to think of the best blurb to give, as to not spoil the book. However, even with the brief few sentences I gave…you know exactly what is going to happen. I would like to say HA, you’re in for a surprise when you actually do start reading this book. But you’re not, it’s exactly as it seems. Which, is part of the reason why I wasn’t too keen on this book.

But, first, lets talk about what I did like. The main thing I liked about this is that Will, one of the contenders for Greta’s attention (even if she doesn’t realise it!) isn’t what you would typically find. In fact, if anyone has read a hero in a romance who is basically described as big, but not big as in muscled, but big as in fat, then let me know, because I certainly haven’t. I liked that he wasn’t a specimen of manly perfection.

Overall though, I found this book a little predictable, right down to the identity of the grumpy old man across the street, and I wasn’t sure how I felt about Greta. Sometimes she made me laugh, but sometimes I didn’t like her, she had this passive aggressive snobbishness about her that made it difficult for me to connect with her. Taken as a whole I found Check Me Out a little disappointing and forgettable.

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?
