The romance in this didn’t spark enough for me, I didn’t catch the instant attraction vibe they seemed to have to one another and I definitely had trouble believing that their relationship went any deeper than sex ~ Under the Covers

After seeing her boss in her blissful happily ever after with her Special Ops boyfriend, Emily Price is excited for more then one reason when she is offered the chance to run an ad campaign for the Army and have close contact with Staff Sergeant David “Hawk” Hawkins, who will be the model. However, Hawk is reluctant, extremely reluctant and only does it as he has lost a bet. What he doesn’t count on is the draw he feels to Emily, but with him being posted to Afghanistan as soon as the photo shoots are over, is there enough between them to last a separation?

Girl next door type meets sexy, gruff modern day warrior…I was hoping to love this book, unfortunately it didn’t quite do it for me. The romance in this didn’t spark enough for me, I didn’t catch the instant attraction vibe they seemed to have to one another and I definitely had trouble believing that their relationship went any deeper than sex. I know that all sounds very negative, but I did like both the main characters, Emily and Hawk were really likable and there was some great banter between them, I just couldn’t invest in their romance.

I am keeping this review short and sweet, Model Soldier was a quick read and although it may have lacked chemistry between the couple, I did enjoy reading it.

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?

What a bummer–the cover alone would have made me get this, lol. But I need a strong connection and story–not just smexy times.
Shocker, I know, right?
Thanks for the honest review, Suz.
