I was expecting a cheesy sci-fi romance, with strange aliens, men with muscles instead of brains and the women who swoon for them. A teensy part of me was a little disappointed that this wasn’t the case… ~ Under the Covers

The last thing Addy Dawson remembers is a trying to escape a forest fire and failing, but she wakes up she is in a square room with no doors and windows. Naked. But she isn’t alone, there is also a naked man, Max, in with her, who has one thing on his mine…breeding. As Addy comes to understand the strange and cruel new world she is being kept prisoner in the more she needs to escape, together her and Max must find away out of their captivity and survive.

When I first started reading this, I was expecting a cheesy sci-fi romance, with strange aliens, men with muscles instead of brains and the women who swoon for them. A teensy part of me was a little disappointed that this wasn’t the case, I love some cheese, but mostly I was pleasantly surprised, instead of being a massive corn fest instead it was a survival story about two people doing their best in an impossible situation.

If you like a tortured hero than this would be the book for you, my poor darling Max, although at first I wasn’t sure of him, he soon won me over as you realise what he has been through. I also really liked Addy, she was clever and tough. The reason this got 3.5 feathers rather than 4 or 5 was because although I liked the romance, there didn’t seem enough of it, one minute they kind of hated each other and then wham, they didn’t it was a fairly quick turnabout, it was only really the last parts of the book that really showed how well they worked as a couple.

But this was a good book, certainly full of adventure, a few fluffy aliens and when it finally got to it, a really great romance.

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?
