“Mia Sheridan was able to move me with this story…”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve wanted to read Mia Sheridan for a while but I always end up pushing her down the TBR and not picking up her books.  That had to stop and this was the book I finally read.  And I’m so glad I finally did.  Mia Sheridan’s writing swept me off my feet and into the world of these two broken characters in a beautiful story.

Callen and Jessica met when they were just kids.  She was looking for space away from her home life where her father would constantly cheat on her mother and her mother would be depressed about it.  Callen needed space away from his abusive father.  Those moments for over a year where the only time the two of them were happy and formed a bond that couldn’t be broken even with years of separation between them.

You know the surprising thing about this book for me?  I loved the whole childhood best friends reconnecting and finding out they were each other’s true love all along.  But the surprising part was the fact that Callen feels he’s no good for Jessica and that usually irritates the hell out of me.  In this book, it didn’t.  I think the author made me understand Callen so well, so deeply and feel his pain and his circumstances so that it felt natural for him to have the feelings he did.  To see himself the way he did.  And not only did it not irritate me, but my heart broke for him.

The romance was sweet, the connection was strong and the friendship felt real.  The story just came to life!  The mix of history with Jessica’s job was thought provoking.  The resolution felt right and it cemented they would be in a good place to move forward.  I loved how these two didn’t feel cookie cutter in any way while also being relatable.

Mia Sheridan was able to move me with this story and it was so easy to get swept off by it and not want to put it down until it was finished.  I can’t wait to read more by her.

Favorite quote:

“Sometimes the beginning of love is just a simple matter of proximity.”

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.
