Even though I had read this before it didn’t stop me from devouring every word, tearing up and laughing at the same parts and generally enjoying the whole experience. ~ Under the Covers
Nina has come to the small town of Gnaw Bone in Colorado to take a time out from her clueless fiancee Niles. What she didn’t expect to find when she reached the beautiful house she had spent a fortune renting was Max, a domineering, annoying, sexy and sweet mountain man.
This was one of my first ever Kristen Ashley reads so I decided to give it a reread… I needed my fix and I was in the mood for a ruggedly sexy mountain man, voila Max! Even though I had read this before it didn’t stop me from devouring every word, tearing up and laughing at the same parts and generally enjoying the whole experience.
I find I am starting to repeat myself in these reviews, but essentially what I love about a KA book is the same. Her gorgeous heroes who are not just men, but MEN, I swear they have ruined me for normal guys, I just keep thinking…what would Max do in this situation…damn you Kristen *shakes fist*. But it isn’t just the sexy alphas she writes so expertly that I love, she injects real heart in to all her books, with every word, sentence and chapter I feel like she has thoroughly enjoyed writing it and has fallen in love with her characters just as much as I have.
Another great book, and the start of what I know is a fabulous series, if you haven’t read any of her books before this is a good one to start with, if you have read her before, you need to get on to the Colorado series!
P.S. I do really need to move to Colorado though, in the world according to Kristen Ashley that seems to be the Alpha Male capital, I am happy to go find out and report back!

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?
