Veronica’s life got put on hold when she started taking care of her ailing mother, but now her mother has died and all she seems to be left with is grief, 40 extra pounds and most her friends and her boyfriend gone. But her best friend decides she needs a push and gets her a free weeks membership at the 5th Street gym, where she meets Noah, her 20 year old trainer. They form a deep friendship, but Noah realizes he wants more from her, and he tries persuade the cautious Veronica that age is just number and that the 8 years between them mean nothing.

This is my first read by Elizabeth Reyes but it definitely won’t be my last, I really enjoyed this sweet love story. The main reason I liked this book was because I found it impossible to not fall in love with Noah, he was not only gorgeous with more muscles then you can shake a stick at, but also thoughtful and caring; the perfect guy, I have no idea how Veronica managed to resist him for so long.

The only aspect of the book I found annoying was the pace, it was a little slow and it took them far too long to get together. Although I could understand her concerns regarding their age, I just found her worrying boring and repeatative in places.

But the writing was good, and I like the cast of characters that Ms Reyes has created, including Veronica’s best friend and Noah’s group of friends from the gym, and I can’t wait to read more about them.

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?
