…some of the melodrama does have my eyes rolling, mostly my eyes were glued to my kindle screen desperate to see what would happen next. ~ Under the Covers

Maris Sulle has spent most his life devoted to the one man he loves but can never have, the happily married Darling Cruel the only person who has ever loved him for exactly who he was. But, when on a mission he rescues the jaded Ture and feels a connection he can’t seem to deny. But they both must overcome their past and insecurities especially when danger seems to be following them.

I feel like I have been waiting for this book forever; it is the book in the The League series that I have been anticipating the most, I just wanted Maris to have his HEA after all the horrible events he has endured. This book overlaps with Born of Silence at the point where Darling, Maris and the gang rescue Zarya from the League. But instead of seeing it from Darling and Zarya’s POV we see Ture and Maris instead and the connection between them is almost instant.

I don’t normally read M/M books, for some reason they have never appealed to me, but Cloak & Silence,for me, was less about being an M/M book and more about me wanting two characters I love to have a happy ending. Like with all Sherrilyn Kenyon books though, the road to true love is paved with torture, persecution and betrayal, and although some of the melodrama does have my eyes rolling, mostly my eyes were glued to my kindle screen desperate to see what would happen next.

I really enjoyed this book, it was worth the wait, the romance essentially was rather sweet as the both look past each others scars, internal and external, and fall in love, with some hot ‘n steamy scenes to keep us drooling. The League is definitely one of my favourite series, full of romance, action and heartbreak and I can’t wait to read more.

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?
