Like a good mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s night it was sweet and warmed you up from the inside out. ~ Under the Covers
Cassie McPherson is a workaholic and Vice President of her fathers very successful construction company, although recently they have started to lose contracts to Sutton Construction, ran by the very driven and ambitious James Sutton. However, Christmas is coming up and she has to reluctantly put business behind her and get in the holiday spirit for her rambunctious family’s festivities, and to stop any relatives planning on some ill conceived and unwanted matchmaking she does what she always does and hires an escort to pose as her plus one. But, her escort is much better then the others she has had, James is more handsome and charismatic; his smile alone makes her think of paying for a few “extras”…but James has a secret; one he is dying to tell Cassie but could ruin their budding relationship.
This book was such fun! Like a good mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s night it was sweet and warmed you up from the inside out. Although you wouldn’t perhaps find this memorable or put it on your favourites shelf it was still a fun book that is perfect for snuggling up with this Christmas.
Most of the humour in this came from some misunderstandings between the main characters, but the sassy heroine, Cassie, also had her moments. As well as the humour, the characters in this were likable from Cassie’s overprotective brothers to James’ bubbly assistant, although they were all background characters they each brought charm to the book. The central romance was also good, James and Cassie were a great couple and I was cheering them on all the way through.
You also get a two for one deal with this book! I LOVE a secondary romance, and although there wasn’t loads and loads of page time spent on this one, I still loved it and was just as pleased to see them get their HEA as I was James and Cassie.
A good easy read, with some humour and a sweet romance, although not an original story it is worth giving it 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?
