“I LOVE THIS SERIES. Lauren Dane can really do no wrong when it comes to the world of the Brown siblings and beyond.” ~Under the Covers
Can I just say first and foremost, I LOVE THIS SERIES. Lauren Dane can really do no wrong when it comes to the world of the Brown siblings and beyond. LUSH is the perfect example of why I love it so much. It’s got a perfect blend of sensuality, mixed in a dose of hot rocker and tattooed hero and with a dash of strong and independent heroine.
Ms. Dane can write some of the most real characters. You just want to get in their heads and their lives. Mary and Damien were just that for me. I wanted to be her and be with him. Mary is successful, she doesn’t need a man to make her happy or pay her bills. She’s got a great group of friends and a full life. Damien just adds to it, he doesn’t take over.
And then Damien, well, who doesn’t love a reformed bad boy. He’s got a ladies man reputation but all that changes when he meets Mary. He knows she’s a good girl, a girl that you have a relationship with. Their attraction was sizzling from the very beginning. I especially loved the fact that it is the bad boy hero that tiptoes around Mary to get a relationship and something serious out of her. Totally in love over here.
Their problems were real and they came to a good solution. No quick fixes, and no superfluous problems just to keep them apart.
The few glimpses of the Browns that we do get are never enough to appease me, but I’ll take what I can get. We also hear from Raven and Jonah, who will be getting their book soon and, can I just say, I am so excited to finally read her story! She was a lot more personable in this book, almost cheery. Even though she still had her trademark personality, but she seemed nicer somehow. LOL I really cannot wait to see what’s going on with her and Jonah and how that’s going to work with his family. Ohhhh boy!
LUSH was just another winner for me!

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.
