“This book was very sexy, with sizzling chemistry and a whole lot of alpha males.” ~ Under the Covers

Sawyer – 3 Stars

I think this book started off on the wrong foot with me.  Mainly because this is Honey’s story and I wanted to punch Honey in the face, most of the time, repeatedly.  The woman didn’t seem to have an ounce of common sense!  She’s presumably running from someone that wants to kill her and ends up hiding out with a houseful of men after he has a car accident.  Sawyer, being the doctor, is taking care of her.  But for complete strangers, Honey jumped right on board with her damsel in distress role, and then even had a bit of Stockholm Syndrome when Sawyer wasn’t letting her leave because he wanted to “protect” her.  *Glad I got that off my chest*

The good thing about this was that Sawyer and Honey were still hot together and she does care for his son, making it believable that they could work as a couple.

Of course, as an introduction to all these men, wow!  There’s nothing better than a bunch of hot men waking up in the middle of the night and running out to face danger armed with nothing more than ummmm well they weren’t wearing much. 😉

Morgan – 3.5 Stars

I started off really liking this story.  Morgan was sexier, edgier, rougher around the edges and seemed like an animal trying to contain his urges.  His attraction for Honey’s sister was instant!  And Misty responded to that.  I liked that she was flirty and fun with everyone else but with him, she was fighting the attraction and ended up being bitchy.  Of course, with all that sexual tension that made for some explosive encounters whenever they let go and got near each other.

I enjoyed Misty as a heroine a lot more than Honey, but I can’t say she didn’t have her stupid moments.  Especially at the end.  And the other thing that I wasn’t completely sold on was the repeat history that now Morgan is going to go through the same thing Sawyer did with his ex wife, in regards to his kid.

Overall, though, this book was very sexy, with sizzling chemistry and a whole lot of alpha males.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

I would give it a 4 just because the guys are so sexy and rugged. Gotta love a house full of muscle and sex appeal. Love the new cover better than the old.
