“Cash is the perfect recipe hero to melt your heart and panties off.” ~Under the Covers

UP TO ME picks up right where DOWN TO YOU left off.  But where I was excited at the beginning of the first book, this one started off on a different note for me.  Why, you ask?  Because I am not in love with the heroine of this story.

Olivia is a lot of the same in this book.  She’s struggling with loving a bad boy and following her heart.  Having taken away the messy sort of triangle, she’s left with just Cash to lust after.  Except because of the dangers that surround him they have to keep their relationship private.

But there is one redeeming quality to this book.  Cash!  I liked him even more than before because this book is all about blending Cash and Nash and giving us the best combination hero you could ever want.  He’s determined to help his father, he’s bad ass because he wants to face the Russian mob and he knows his way around a woman’s body.  Cash is the perfect recipe hero to melt your heart and panties off.

When I thought this story would be full of intrigue but that I knew where it was going, the author throws another curve ball.  I’m starting to feel whiplash about this!  It’s an unexpected turn that’s for sure, but it adds to the “woe, is me” vibe some of the characters in this story have going for them.

Aside from a hero that is driving my interest for this story and a decently intriguing (if a bit over the top) storyline, I don’t have a strong urge to read these but I am curious by the twist at the end enough that I’ll be reading the conclusion.
