 I have a feeling this will fall in a vault in my mind where all the other generic PNR books are currently stored, never to be remembered again. ~ Under the Covers

Elle has spent her 300 years as a Grimm trying to forget her Michael, Not-So- Charming Prince from her mortal life, but it looks like her time for avoiding him is done. They have a mission together but the feelings Elle thought she had faded come surging to live as she looks in to Michael’s gorgeous green eyes.

I find this book/novella (it was very short) hard to review, as although it was okay it just didn’t hit the right spot for me. There was nothing bad about it, the sex was hot and there was a little bit of everything, threesome, anal sex, rough sex, sweet sex…which is alot to pack into a book this size! And because of all the sex breaks the token plot never felt that urgent either.

I just found I didn’t really connect to any of the characters and I have a feeling this will fall in a vault in my mind where all the other generic PNR books are currently stored, never to be remembered again. This book just wasn’t for me, it was a quick read that was written well, but neither the plot or characters held my attention.

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?

Thanks for the review – sometimes with the shorter books the plot almost gets lost with everything else that is going on

Yeah, the plot was definitely overshadowed in this, it was a shame as I liked her writing style, just not the content!

Thanks for the great review! I kinda felt that way about book 1, haven’t read any more lately. May have to wait and get them all and then read in one fell swoop.

I confess I haven’t read the first book for this! Luckily it seemed to stand up on its own okay. Maybe it would be better reading them all at once you might get to know the characters better as it looks like some of them overlap.

Thanks for the honest review, I think it is generally really hard to make characters that people can connect with in a novella, never mind trying to add in paranormal aspects.

Thanks for reading šŸ™‚ Yeah, the page constriction must make it harder to create more sympathetic characters and it is great when you find a novella that works for you, unfortunately this one didn’t do it for me!

Thanks for the posting of this review; I just gave book one away to a follower on my blog. I hope she gets enjoyment out of it.
I hate it when you cannot connect to the characters in the book you are reading. Lately, I’ve been a funk of just okay and good reads–waiting for that EPIC book that just sings to me while reading.

I hope your follower likes it, I have seen plenty of good reviews for this series lol, I must just be the odd one out!!!

That sucks! But when you find the book that you know you will linger with you and be reread more times than you can count you will know it is worth it šŸ™‚

Hi Timitra, I hate not connecting to the characters as well, I don’t mind a shaky plot sometimes as long as I love the characters enough to keep reading on!

Hi Annette, short stories can definitely be tricky, I find it is always a gamble reading them, even when it is a favourite author

Thanks for the review! Sometimes short stories don’t quite hit the spot because of the length constraint even from my fave authors!

Hi pc šŸ™‚ I totally agree, shorter stories must be harder to pull off and unfortunately this one didn’t quite hit it with me. Thanks for reading šŸ™‚
