I didn’t love it, I didn’t help it, it was just okay. ~ Under the Covers

Kelsey Noble is tired of waiting, she can hear the tick of her biological clock and she wants a baby now, the only problem is that she doesn’t have a potential father. A fertility clinic is her answer, only they mess up and give her the wrong baby daddy. Something she only realises when a cowboy complete with Stetson turns up on her doorstep to see her unborn child.

I find books like this hard to review I didn’t love it, I didn’t help it, it was just okay. It fell a little flat for me, I didn’t really connect with the main characters or the story.

I did like the secondary characters, the hero’s brother and sister especially, it looks like they will be getting books in this series and I would be interested in seeing there story. However, Kelsey and Cole never really caught my attention and I didn’t feel much chemistry between them.

Unexpected didn’t rock my world, but it was well written and had a nice romance as well as some good secondary characters, it just wasn’t to my taste.

About Maisey Yates

USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit. In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.

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?
