“Lesson learned: Don’t request a book when you’re hungry.”
~ Under the Covers

Lesson learned: Don’t request a book when you’re hungry. The macarons on this cover seduced me into taking a chance on The Art of French Kissing unfortunately in this case it didn’t work out. This review won’t be very long as I DNFed at 35% and to get even that far it took me a week – for context, I can normally read 2 or 3 books in that time.

The YA genre is one that I struggle with, but I did want to give it more of a try this year. However, The Art of French Kissing just highlighted what I find irritating about YA: teenagers. There was too much teenage angst and uncontrollable hormones being paraded around. It was bad enough when I actually had to live through the experience myself, so I didn’t relish reading about it. I just didn’t connect with the characters, there was too much over dramatics for my tastes.

I haven’t given up on trying to find some YA I like; however, I may give up on YA romances. All they do is exasperate me!

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?
