After two years working as a doctor in Africa Cali Stanton has come back to look after her father and look after her fathers company. However, what she doesn’t realize is that her father has been receiving threats and his business being sabotagued and he only trusts Cali, and his heads of security brother Matthew and Jason Anderson. Cali can’t believe the connection she has with Matthew Anderson, just looking in to his blue eyes makes her heart beat a little faster, but Matthew can’t allow his attraction to Cali go any further then dreaming about her, both she and her father are in danger and it is his job to protect them.This was a sweet read, Matthew and Cali were a cute couple and I enjoyed reading about them. What I also liked about this book was the other characters and the fact there was a bit of a secondary romance going on, it gave this book a lot of warmth and I was glad to see that the main characters having more then just relationships with eachother. All too often in romance, the main couple don’t seem to focus on anyone else but eachother, I liked that she had a close relationship with her father and that she looked forward to going out with her friends and that Matthew had a Sunday tradition with his brother.

It was a little bit slow to start though, for about 50% of the book I wanted to just tell Matthew to man up and ask her out. I also didn’t like the constant change of POV, it could be 3 or 4 different POV shifts per chapter which, for me interrupted the flow of the book a little. I liked that you got different characters perspectives, but I didn’t like that it changed so often.

But despite that I still enjoyed reading this book, it was nice easy reading and I will continue to read more books put out by Ms Hayes.

About Sherri Hayes

Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn't good at spelling, or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.

At the age of thirty, all of that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show wastaking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.

Seven years later, Sherri is the author of seven full-length novels, and one short story. Writing has become a creative outlet for Sherri that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create. She is most well known for her Finding Anna Series about a young woman rescued from being a sex slave by a wealthy Dominant. Sherri’s eighth novel, Crossing The Line, is scheduled to release September 2014.

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?

Sounds like a nice change from my usual reads. I liked what you said about there being more to the story than just the H/H with their family relations being important too.
