“This book didn’t have the same intensity between the two characters as the first one did.” ~Under the Covers

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series and seeing Malcolm and Owen first get together.  In CITY MOUSE, Owen has decided to stay and live in London with Malcolm and give their relationship a real try.

But after their emotional weekend together, Malcolm returns to his high stress job and Owen goes in search of his job.  And when he finds it, it’s not to Malcolm’s standards.  CITY MOUSE basically deals primarily with the issues of a job on a relationship.  From Malcolm’s absence due to working late hours, to him putting down Owen for not getting paid enough and working in a bad neighborhood.

I liked that Owen stayed true to his character and didn’t let Malcolm steamroll over him.  We’ve known Malcolm to be an ass from the beginning, and he still has a lot to grow and learn.

However, this book didn’t have the same intensity between the two characters as the first one did.  Yes, there were some hot moments but I was definitely missing something.  I guess this was just ok for me, but it was nice to see them after the last page of their book and see that they are working on their relationship and learning to give and take.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

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.
