” It got my attention from the very beginning and didn’t let me pull my ereader down.” ~Under the Covers
There is just something about this series that I always enjoy. The characters and storylines are always fun. They’re not long stories, but usually once I start them I can’t put them down until they are finished. And SNOW BALLS was no different. It got my attention from the very beginning and didn’t let me pull my ereader down.
A few reasons why…I thought JJ was adorable. I just wanted him to be my friend and hand out with me. His character was so conflicted because he’s a little…flaming, for lack of a better word. All fluttering hands, giiiiiiiirl let me tell you about it, and into interior design. Works at the art gallery and on occasion likes to dye his hair pink. Nothing much manly about him, except his size. He’s built like a football player which is why the guys he’s with are always putting him in the dominant role of their relationship. But he wants the opposite, someone to take care of him for a change.
So when Ryan Star shows up, a cop who just moved from New York, and sparks start flying, Ryan decides that he’ll pretend to be very macho to catch Ryan’s attention.
It goes to show that you should always be yourself, but also that thanks to that chance JJ took, he was able to find love and make a difference, not only in his life, but also Ryans’.
Ryan is the hero most women die to read about. All bad ass cop, with some emotional issues and hang ups, the kind of tough guy you want to fix. Except he’s so very interested in JJ even though he made it a rule not to play around with anyone in the vicinity of where he works. See, he got put back in the closet after something bad happened back in New York. And yes, there is just something way too hot about a guy in a uniform with guns.
Their relationship develops slowly and builds on their attraction and trust. I thought they had great chemistry and complemented each other perfectly. And don’t get me started on their physical chemistry because there were no problems in that department.
Now if I could only make one request……PLEASE GIVE JERRY A BOOK. He needs one, he deserves one, I’m dying to read his HEA.

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.
