Great action, combustible chemistry between Liam and Daniel and a conflict that has so much more room to grow. ~ Under the Covers

Liam is hired by his ex-lover’s father to take his son out. For a profit of $10 million, it seems like a pretty good deal. As a vampire, he has enhanced senses and abilities and with the addition of nanobots, Liam is virtually unstoppable. While Liam is set to take out Daniel, his ex-lover turns the tables on him and suddenly, both of them are in a load of trouble and require each other’s help to escape unscathed and alive.

As the first book in a two book series, L.A. Witt creates a vast new world with the Sky and the Gutter. Vastly different in their standard of living, Witt explores the major differences with some vivid imagery and though we don’t get as much as I would like, the details of the world is still fascinating and unique.

For a novella under 80 pages, I found that Witt was able to create such chemistry between Daniel and Liam. Both are smartasses and that gives ample opportunity for Witt to explore her fun side. Witt always finds ways to incorporate her great sense of humor into her work. It’s really become one of trademarks I think.

I do wish the book was longer because Witt touched on everything I like – Great action, combustible chemistry between Liam and Daniel and a conflict that has so much more room to grow. I simply wanted more of it and I think that last sex scene should have been longer …with a lot more explicit detail J

Overall, A CHIP IN HIS SHOULDER is a great start to the series. I am hoping that Witt considers writing more books set in this universe. I’m not ready to leave Liam and Daniel just 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.

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!
