Rarely do I find a Urban Fantasy series that effortlessly blends kickass action and heated romance in one book, but the author manages it every time. Aguirre delivers on the promise of “one hell of a good ride!” ~ Under the Covers

Ann Aguirre has quickly become one of my favorite authors. With her unique ability to submerge her readers into another world, I feel as if I’m taking a short vacation and spending time with old friends. I say this all the time because I mean it. I wish Corine Solomon was my friend. She is an amazing heroine – intelligent, intuitive, and independent. You see her growth across the series and it’s amazing to see her come to find her own happiness at the end of this book. As I flipped the last page, I sighed with satisfied contentment. It is perfect! But the road to getting there hasn’t been as smooth…

AGAVE KISS continues where DEVIL’S PUNCH left off. Corine’s best friend, Shan is safe but at the cost of Chance’s sacrifice. What will this mean for Corine and what other obstacles lie in her way? Demons and archangels are just some of the problems she must deal with but her main priority is getting her love, Chance back whatever the cost.

Major development happen in this book and like I said, it made the fangirl in me smiling brightly. I really enjoyed Kel in this book. I think it made me appreciate his character more under a different light. This series has such a great cast of characters, where each of them is willing to give up something great for another. I do believe that sacrifices happen a lot in Urban Fantasy, but I don’t think any of them are as selfless as these ones.

I wish more people read this series. I don’t think it gets enough love as it deserves. Fans of Kim Harrison would enjoy this world. The phenomenal worldbuilding and the cast of supernatural characters all play a part in making this series as strong as it is. Add in Aguirre’s stellar writing and you’ve got a series that readers will gobble up like candy.

Rarely do I find a Urban Fantasy series that effortlessly blends kickass action and heated romance in one book, but the author manages it every time. Aguirre delivers on the promise of “one hell of a good ride!” AGAVE KISS ends the Corine Solomon series on a perfect note.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
