“I am normally a massive fan of Sarah McCarty’s books and she alway leaves me  day dreaming about the sexy men that she creates, but Caden’s Vow isn’t really having that effect, it leaves me strangely unmoved.” ~ Under the Covers

Ever since Maddie O’Hare was rescued from life working as a whore by one of the Hell’s Eight men and brought to the compund she has been drawn to Caden Miller and when she sees him riding out, breaking a promise to her, she is determined to stop letting life dictate to her and sets after what she wants: Caden.

I am normally a massive fan of Sarah McCarty’s books and she alway leaves me  day dreaming about the sexy men that she creates, but Caden’s Vow isn’t really having that effect, it leaves me strangely unmoved. I think some of the problem I had with this book is that it Caden and Maddie had already built up a relationship before the book had started and  I have only read 3 out of the six book in this series, so I missed out on that. I also I didn’t feel I knew Caden any better at the end of the book then I did at the beginning and so on the outside he had the sexy cowboy thing going on, but I never felt I got beneath the surface.

However, what I did enjoy about Caden was how gentle and loving he was towards Maddie, and Maddie herself really changed and developed over the course of the book from a woman who couldn’t face reality without slipping into crazy to a strong woman trying to make her own way and find her passion. Something else that Ms McCarty also write really well is sex, and it was no different in Caden’s Vow, it managed to be sweet, loving and off the charts smoking hot at the same time.

Although this isn’t my favourite book of Sarah McCarty, it was a quick and entertaining read, I just hope I can connect more with the hero in her next book.

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?

Sorry you didn’t like it much, Suz…although it wasn’t my fave of the series (AHEM–Caine), I did enjoy it. Sarah is one of the very few historical authors that I will read.
