FRACK ME SIDEWAYS! I loved this book. I know, your shocked, damn it I am shocked as well! It is Young Adult, I normally hate romance YA books, they drive me crazy with all the whining and moaning and no-one-understands-me crap. But this book is so much better then that. At first glance it looks like a good girl meets bad boy scenario, which it kind of is. Abby has gone to college to get away from her father and to build a new life for herself without the stigma she has to suffer through in her home town and Travis is the perfect bad boy with his tattoos, his fights and don’t-give-a-crap attitude as well as his man whore ways. But as soon as they meet, both characters change, more noticabley Travis, and form a relationship.
I am finding it hard to review this book properly, as is always the case with books I really really like! I can see why some people may not like it, there is a lot of back forth and sometimes it seems needless and repeatative but I found I didn’t mind as I was involved so much in the book and I just wanted as much page time with Abby and Travis as possible!This book was fantastic and it one of my favourite books this year, it caught my eye because of the beautiful cover, but I know it will be one of those books that I will periodically reread and I can’t wait to read more of Jamie McGuire’s work. Fingers crossed for some books on Travis’s brothers! *hint hint if you read this Ms Mcguire*

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?
