Sera Sinclaire needs a holiday between a crazy ex husband who can’t let her go and a town of over protective dominant werewolves she feels smothered. But, Sera is a the last of a dying breed, a coyote and a submissive one, but Sera isn’t the only one who needs to get away Julio Mendoza, a very dominant wolf on the council needs to escape from his responsibilities before they swallow him up. Together they take a road trip and the initial attraction flares into something more, but a submissive coyote who values her hard earned independence be able to stay with a wolf as dominant as Julio…Before I start this review, I should warn you that I haven’t actually read the previous four books in this series, something that I think you really need to do before starting this, although it makes sense I didn’t always understand who the people or the events that we’re referenced and it did make it a I confusing; this doesn’t read as a standalone very well.
Apart from the fact that I hadn’t read the previous books, the main problem I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I wanted was because I didn’t feel a connection with the maim characters and I didn’t feel the connection they had with one another either, they seemed to get to the I-love-yous too quickly for me to really buy it.
But it did sound like there was an interesting story arc going through these books, I didn’t really always understand what was going on, but it made me curious enough to get the first book for my kindle and find out.
Although this book was okay, I think it would have been much better for me to have read it after reading the others, maybe the characters had built a rapport in the previous books that I missed, but as a stand alone I wouldn’t recommend it, but I may give this series a try.

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?
