Ava walks into Nighingale Investigation for two reasons, (1) looking for help in nailing her best friends dirty cheating husband (2) to see Lucas Stark again, the man she has been in love with since she was a child but hasn’t seen in six years, and in those six years she has made a massive ugly duckling transformation. But Ava hates men, after a lifetime of men treating her like crap she wants nothing to do with them, even Luke. But as the danger escalates and Ava gets shot at and kidnapped Luke is having none of it, Ava belongs to him and everyone seems to know it but her.I cannot beeeeelieve it (yes I can channeling Victor Meldrew) my Luke has been taken from me! I need a minutes silence to help me digest this *holds silence*…..nope still upset. Good job I still have Hector.
I love an Ugly Duckling story, and although we didn’t see the transformation, we just saw her six years later all hot and sexy I still felt she was in her old mind set thinking of herself as “Fatty Fatty Four Eyes” and it was sweet to watch Luke make her feel beautiful. What I love about the Hot Bunch is their persistance in the face of the Rock Chicks resistance and Luke was no different and I loved his way of getting to Ava, handcuffs and punishment are apparently very effective tools, the other men left in the Hot Bunch should make note of this.
Another great book in the series, like the others it was funny, zany and just a little bit crazy packed full of characters you won’t forget.

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?
