This book was a quick hot read, and although I did find it a little frustrating, I did enjoy it. ~ Under the Covers

Layla has moved to New York with her fiancee Aidan, and has a new job in Hot Shots an agency that specialises in hiring models for work erotic work. But Layla is starting to have doubts about her move to New York, Aidan has become more distant and barely touches her, and when he sees her attraction to Sawyer Blake, one of the models she is trying to sign up to Hot Shots, he proposes something she never expected.

There is a lesson to be learnt from this book…if after a few years your fiancee suddenly keeps buying you a plastic penis rather then using his own and then asks to watch you bang another guy then GO GO GO! Maybe I am being unsympathetic but I found it a bit exasperating that Layla never really started to question the rather unconventional situation she had found herself in even though it was making her miserable. This was my main problem with this book, that and it was too predictable, I knew what was going to happen and it got a little boring.

But, it wasn’t all bad, the scenes where I wasn’t shouting at my kindle for Layla to get a clue were pretty hot, Cari Quinn definitely knows how to write a hot sex scene and Layla and Sawyer had plenty of chemistry. This book was a quick hot read, and although I did find it a little frustrating, I did enjoy it.

About Cari Quinn

USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn wrote her first story—a bible parable—in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. Now she gets to pen sexy romances for a living and routinely counts her lucky stars. When she’s not scribbling furiously, she can usually be found watching men’s college basketball, playing her music way too loud or causing trouble. Sometimes simultaneously.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
