After surviving childhood together with no one but each other Sylvie and Creed had planned on running away on Sylvie’s eighteenth birthday and never looking back. But Creed doesn’t show, he disappears leaving Sylvie  to suffer six years of hell before she could escape. But sixteen years after his betrayal she wakes up and he is back…

As Annie, Fran and Ang can tell you I have spent the last couple of days on messenger doing a manic countdown to when this came out, searching Amazon every five minutes to see if it was in yet, I was that excited. I imagine that they are quite relieved that that experience is over now (until the next Kristen Ashley release anyways!) instead they are getting messages about how awesome Creed was and how I am now going to find a real life version and have loads of sex and babies with him (if you know anyone, you know where I am!), because I LOVED this book!

Reason number one why I love this book:

CREED- I adored him, not only was he sexy, rugged and totally badass (with a hot ass) all he needed was a piercing and I would have been a puddle on he floor, he was also kinda sweet as well. That, and he knew all the best uses for massage oil *fans self* I have to say, I may have preferred Knight a tiny bit more (maybe it was the daddy thing!) but Creed still pushed all my buttons.

Reason number two why I love this book:

SYLVIE- She wasn’t your typical Kristen Ashley heroine, she was almost as bad ass as Creed! But I liked that KA has mixed it up a little and created Sylvie, she was funny and kick ass and definitely one of my favourite heroines.

Reason number three why I love this book:

THE FLASHBACKS- I loved the flashbacks, showing Creed and Sylvie growing up together and how close their bond grew and changed as they got older, it was really beautiful. The emotions in the flashbacks I thought were even more poignant the what they were going through in the present, but maybe that is because you know that tragedy isn’t far away. Either way I think the flashbacks add an extra dimension to the book and really give an emotional depth to Sylvie and Creed’s relationship.

Reason number four why I love this book:

SEX SEX SEX!- Although this for me isn’t erotica, more like just bordering erotic romance, there is no doubt that the sex in this knicker dampingly hawt. It is rough, raw and filled with sixteen years of emotion. A warning though this book has ass play in it, I thought that was one of the hottest scenes in the book, but readers sometimes like a warning first!

My final reason why I love this book:

SYLVIE & CREED- I have said them separately, but this book is all about them coming together and as a couple I think they are fracking fantastic. They belong together; they have off the charts chemistry and are so damn sweet together it makes my teeth ache.

So there a five perfectly good reasons to read this book, do what are you still doing here?

P.S. Annie, Creed (and Knight) have been claimed by me, I have got my eyes on you and your harem pinching ways!

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?
