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.

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?

I don’t normally read this type of book, but it seems like it would be a good book to read between other series. I may have to check it out for a little light-hearted reading

Thanks for the review! I agree w/ Anastasia that this sounds like what I would call a “palate cleanser” book. Something light and fluffy as a pick me up when I read too much PNR/ suspense.
