Charlotte Stein has blown me away again, in 100 pages she has managed to convey more emotion and sexual chemistry than a lot full length books. ~ Under the Covers

Abbie Gough has been secretly watching her neighbour, who she refers to as The Serial Killer, something about his buttoned up appearance and cold eyes intrigues her. Especially when she watches his pleasure himself in front of his window. As Abbie and her neighbour start a strange relationship they both must face their tortured and violent pasts.

Charlotte Stein has blown me away again, in 100 pages she has managed to convey more emotion and sexual chemistry than a lot full length books. Both Abbie and Ivan aka The Serial Killer, were complicated characters who I felt a connection with as I watched their unconventional relationship unfold.

Although for a good portion of the book Ivan and Abbie don’t touch as they explore their voyeuristic sides this didn’t stop this book from being smoking hot. But, it wasn’t just the kinky shenanigans that kept me reading this slightly dark erotica, it was characters. Peeling back the layers of their past and their traumas to see what has made them such isolated and dysfunctional individuals was just as interesting as the erotic aspects of the book.

This was a great novella, I am definitely becoming a massive fan of Charlotte Stein and can’t wait to get my hands on another one of her books.

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?
