Why didn’t I read this book sooner! Well, I think it was the cover, for some reason it freaks me out…I think it is because when I see the flower I think it is a spoon, and then I think eye gauging…then I feel a bit nauseous: it’s pretty much all downhill from there. BUT learn from my mistake, don’t avoid it! I promise there is no eye gauging AT ALL in this book! Instead we have a hatchet wielding mad man…

February Owens and Alexander Colton were meant to be together. They were highschool sweethearts and everyone agreed they were going to get married, have babies and live happily ever after. Except they didn’t. Now 20 years later Feb is back in town after 15 years of having left her small home town and Colt behind. But there is a mad man out there obsessed with February, and he keeps murdering people, and it looks like Colt might be on his list.

I love Kristen Ashley books, not just for her fabulous romances, hot alpha men and plucky women, they are also fantastic value for money! This book was long, and I felt like I really got into the characters lifes. Not just Feb and Colt’s but the whole towns, it was great and I was very sad to turn the last page, luckily I have some more to go in this series. Although the length of the story did mean although this was romance suspense, there was a lot more romance then suspense, I wasn’t particularly tense about the killer popping up, but been as I am all about the romance, to me it wasn’t a downside.

A great start to the series and I have already downloaded (and started reading) the next book! if you are Kristen Ashley fan, you have to read it, if you aren’t then don’t be put off the cover and read it, you are in for a sweet treat.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

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?
