By now I imagine that you are sick of hearing me say this about any Kristen Ashley book I get my hands on but…I LOVED IT! ~ Under the Covers

The last thing Lanie Heron wants is another man, after her last relationship resulted in her being shot, her best friend being stabbed and him being dead, getting in to it with someone else is the last thing she thinks she needs. But, she has been watching Hopper Kincaid for years and although she may not want a lifetime with him, she wants a night, but a night soon leads to more, but is Lanie ready to let Hop in?

By now I imagine that you are sick of hearing me say this about any Kristen Ashley book I get my hands on but…I LOVED IT! A lot. But, I am going to let you in on a little secret (don’t tell anyone!) I wasn’t that excited about reading Lanie and Hop’s HEA, for some reason they didn’t capture my imagination, oh ye of little faith! I should have known she would have turned it round so that I came out the other side impatient for more and wishing it was that little (a lot) bit longer.

Hop was the typically alpha, sexy and disgustingly sweet hero that Kristen Ashley excels at making me salivate over, I mean really it should be illegal to write men that amazing and then expect woman to be satisfied with the pickings out there. However, if you are alpha. sexy yet incredibly sweet biker guy reading this feel free to call me to tell me different, I honestly don’t mind being wrong, I have plenty of body issues you can shag away for me *makes call me sign* okay, the personal ad part of the review is now over.

If you love Kristen Ashley’s other books you will love this one, it has her unique style of writing and  is packed full of emotion as well giving us a peek of all the other characters that we have come to know and love throughout her other books. One thing that I think was slightly different about this book compared to others I have read though is the erotic factor. I thought this book was pretty damn sexy, it doesn’t go in loads of detail, but it is sexually charged and Hop has a beautifully dirty way with words that will definitely cause a few damp knickers (was that too graphic? Oops).

Another triumph for Ms Ashley, her books are always so good full of passion and a clear love for all her characters and her stories and I can’t help but love them along with her.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

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?
