“I did find the two characters to complement each other and be just what the other needed to heal and find acceptance.” ~ Under the Covers

Here’s what sold me on this story… Hollywood, m/m, BDSM.  How could I pass that up?  This story starts with Zack and Steve already in a relationship, actually they’ve been together for three years.  Zack is an actor, the lead on a TV show and still in the closet to the general population, Steve is the director of said TV show and openly gay.  They started their relationship when the show started and now live together and have a D/s relationship.

Pause here for just a second because I found it a bit weird that they lived together and no one from the higher ups of the studio that signs their paychecks would’ve noticed that they had the same address.

OK moving on now.  Both men have things they’ve had to overcome and they’ve both done it their own way.  Maybe some issues they just swept under the rug.  And everything comes to the surface together when their relationship is exposed, their jobs are on the line, and they both have to deal with …. their moms!

I did find the two characters to complement each other and be just what the other needed to heal and find acceptance.  It was very sweet to see Steve stand up for his lover and protect him, give him the strength to face things he wouldn’t have otherwise.  And yeah, there was some pretty hot sex as well.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

I loved this book! I agree, it definitely had an interesting premise, and parts of it were a bit convenient or far fetched, but I still enjoyed it. And the moms are absolutely hysterical!
