So refreshing to find a NA series that have mature teens! ~ Under the Covers

It’s so refreshing to find a NA series that have mature teens. For me, BREATHE was one of those books. In the first book of the Sea Breeze series, Abbi Glines presents readers with a rockstar hero who isn’t cocky or conceited. He’s actually very down to earth and tired of the fanatic that follows him day and night.

So when he meets his newest domestic servant, Sadie he is drawn to the fact that she isn’t swooning over him like most girls her age. Sadie was a character that I immediately liked. Her mother isn’t very concerned with her well-being. She likes to spend her time with men and so when she gets knocked up and can’t work, guess who is the one pulling the load on their small family? Sadie does more than a usual teen would which makes me love her because of her courage and her skills. I immediately wanted her to have a HEA for that alone. Anyone who has to work as hard as she does deserves some happiness.

I read this book fairly quickly because there were so many great things about it. But there was one thing I wished there was more of. Glines plays up a minor love triangle between Sadie, Jax and another one of Sadie’s co-workers. Though he doesn’t really stand a chance against the likes of Jax, I also would have loved to read more on that.

I am very much looking forward to reading more of the characters she introduced in this book. This makes me excited to read the next few books in the series! I have a few to catch up on!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
