Series: Scandalous Sisters #2
Published by TALC Publishing LLC
For Librety Banks and Paul Grimes it is hate at first sight. Liberty thinks Paul is a bore and a cad, and is determined to get revenge on him for, through no fault of his own, seeing her in a state of undress. However, her plans of revenge goes awry when she is caught by her mother, father and loud mouthed butler being chased around the room by a angry naked Paul after she has stolen all his clothers whilst he was in the bath. It wasn’t the greatest start to their inevitable marriage. After disappointing her father with her antics though, Liberty is determined to be a good wife and not disappoint him again, no matter how infuriating her new husband is.
Before I start the review I have to mention the BEST name I have heard for a penis I have heard in a while…LOVE MUSKET.
But although this book did have a few humourous moments and it was an okay read I had a few problems with both the heroine and the hero, Liberty and Paul. Liberty I found I didn’t really like, she was petty and vindictive through most the book, and although her history was explained and I did sympathize with her at times, I just didn’t like her. Paul was okay, but as I didn’t like Liberty and she treated him terribly I couldn’t see why he fell in love with her, and he seemed a little bland.
But I did like certain aspects of the book, mainly the humour and I loved her meddling family so although I didn’t necessarily enjoy this book as much as I thought I would, I would consider reading the others in the series.

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?
