Jet McAlister the newest employee of Fortnums is completely oblivious to that fact that the super hot cop Eddie Chavez is interested in her. What would he see in plain boring Jet? But then Jet’s dead beat dad comes in to town complete with a massive debt and criminals not afraid to threaten and endanger his daughters life to get it. At that point Eddie has had enough, Jet is his and he has had enough with waiting for her to realize it, so amidst kidnappings, knife fights and bar brawls he decides to claim her as his own.
Over all I really enjoyed this book, it was funny, action packed, sexy and sweet. The beginning was fantastic and it immediately pulled me into the story, I really liked Jet and respected her for all teh hard work she puts in for her family, Eddie was smouldering hot and sexy and I think they make a cute and funny couple, my favourite moment has to be when she gets so tongue tied that she implies to Eddie that she is racist (she isn’t!) I was in stitches!
But towards the end I felt the book lost its way a bit, although the bad guy part of the book was resolved nicely, I didn’t think Eddie and Jet’s relationship was, they didn’t seem quite together. And it ended so abruptly with them still in the middle of an argument, which neither of them had really backed down from, it was a little strange.
However, let’s focus on something else awesome about these books. Tex; former recluse ex con, coffee savant and resident cat sitter. For me he outshines all the other characters in the book, I love him! I think we all need a Tex in our lives. Also the other Rock Chicks, I love that in this series we have some really strong female characters, who I think actually outshine the sexy alpha males. Rock. On!
Although this book was a little disappointing in the way it ended, I am really enjoying this series and I can’t wait for Hank’s book!

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?
