“There’s just something about that big, drool-worthy, in-charge alpha male that calls to me. And that’s exactly what Kade is all about.”
~ Under the Covers

This was a pretty steamy, short shifter story and you know me, I can’t resist a sexy shifter. There’s just something about that big, drool-worthy, in-charge alpha male that calls to me. And that’s exactly what Kade is all about.

Melanie is a bit of a recluse, she’s very smart, she has everything she wants in life except a man. And she really doesn’t feel like she needs one, but her friends set her up on a blind date and here she is waiting for the guy. Maybe not your typical blind date as it’s more a hook-up date, they’re meeting at a hotel and they have a room reserved. Hey, can’t blame a girl, sometimes that’s what you need.

And in comes beautiful Kade, who thought he would just blow off some steam and comes to realize he’s standing in front of his mate. Was this a setup by his friends? Did they know? Of course sparks fly immediately and one thing leads to another and leads to some hot action under the covers.

I had a bit of a problem with what happens from this point on because I did not agree with the pack rules about mating and what Kade has to do to keep her, while Melanie was not even sure she wanted to pursue a relationship with him. But other than that this was a very entertaining, even though short, read!

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.

It sounds like this one is all about the relationship building/or not building.

Could be good.

Thanks for the review!
