I LOVE. L.A.WITT. And when I say that, I mean it with my whole heart so when I read the blurb for this book, I thought oh no, where is she going with this book? A gay minister and a tattoo artist couldn’t be a more unlikely pair, but you see, Witt has a way of surpassing your expectations and giving readers something to talk and rave about. I ended up loving COVET THY NEIGHBOR!

In the fourth book of the multi-author Tucker Springs series, Witt introduces Seth Wheeler, a fun and loveable tattoo artist who thinks the best thing that has ever happened to him is the moving in of a hot new guy next door. Darren Romero is all that Seth loves in a guy. Funny, flirty, a little aggressive and gorgeous! What’s more is that Darren has displayed an immediate interest in Seth as well. What could be better, right?

It isn’t until Seth asks what Darren does for a living that he freezes for a moment. A minister? As in he preaches the word of God? The notion seems unbelievable especially after they have the hottest round of sex I’ve read in a long time. But it is what it is, and it only creates conflict within Seth has he tries to come to grips about this.

Witt infuses the book with her trademark humor and it is honestly one of the best things I love about her books. Each page is littered with sarcastic quips and hilarious remarks that make the book flew by so quickly. Readers immediately fall in love with the heroes because of the easy-going nature of Witt’s writing. You are just drawn to them as characters and want to know more.

Another thing I love about this book and Witt’s overall writing is the dialogue. Upbeat and perfectly paced, Witt keeps things moving with her unique way of evoking and expressing emotion. You definitely sense the effort that Darren and Seth put in to make their relationship work. Sometimes, it’s not easy and the fact that they communicate to get around these obstacles makes for a very believable romance.

If you haven’t read any of Witt’s work yet, then I strongly suggest you try any one of her books. She’s become one of my most recent auto-buy authors and has not disappointed me yet!

About L.A. Witt

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who, after three years in Okinawa, Japan, has recently relocated to Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two cats, and a three-headed clairvoyant parakeet named Fred. There is some speculation that this move was not actually because of her husband's military orders, but to help L. A. close in on her arch nemesis, erotica author Lauren Gallagher, who has also recently transferred to Omaha. So, don't anyone tell Lauren. She's not getting away this time...

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!
