“Although this was a novella, it packed a punch, it was all action from the first sentence and I couldn’t put it down.”
~ Under the Covers
Jessie is the only female born from a werewolf, unfortunately that comes with a few draw backs, one, her father’s pack think she is evil and will destroy all were kind and two, they want to kill her before she hits her 20th birthday. So if challenging one of the alphas in the pack is the only way to save her self, that’s what she is going to do.
Although this was a novella, it packed a punch, it was all action from the first sentence and I couldn’t put it down. The main character and from whose point of view this was told from, Jessie was the kind of heroine I like, tough and sarcastic and the world that is starting to be built in this book sounds interesting. What was also great was how polished the writing was, it didn’t seem like a first book, the only aspect that felt a little clumsy was the dialogue, although the banter between the characters was fun, when there was a long conversation it didn’t always sound very natural.
This was like a little taster for the Jessica McClain series, it was short but gave you enough to get a feel for Amanda Carlson’s style and give you a glimpse into the world she has created. A glimpse that I enjoyed and will definitely be reading the first book when it comes out.

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?
