Series: Hidden Threat #1
Published by The Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House
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.

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?
