I really enjoy this series, it is a great mixture of sexy romance and a tale of giving yourself a second chance ~ Under the Covers

Laura Sanders is finding life post divorce rather anti climatic, the divorce was supposed to be the hard part not life afterwards. Still stuck in ruts she created whilst she was married Laura is determined to rediscover her fun side and start enjoying herself. When she meets Bryan Sinclair, her best friend in high school, her fun starts to heat up, but can Laura risk her heart again and begin a new relationship when she has struggled so hard to get over her last one?

I really enjoy this series, it is a great mixture of sexy romance and a tale of giving yourself a second chance after life has battered you about. At this point in the series we are reading about Laura who’s life after divorce wasn’t quite as liberating as she expected, it was a great ride watching Laura, reluctantly sometimes, throw off the shackles and expectations others have placed on her and start to enjoy herself.

A lot of this enjoyment did come from a very sexy old friend Bryan who not only challenged her in the bedroom but encouraged her to start having fun. They were a great couple, they had sexual chemistry from the  moment they were reunited and for those of you who enjoy a little domination in your men than Bryan will definitely tickle your fancy.

Once again Mari Carr has delivered a well written and sexy story, which may not have been my favourite in the series but that didn’t stop me from devouring every page and eagerly waiting for the next book.

About Mari Carr

Writing a book was number one on Mari Carr’s bucket list and on her thirty-fourth birthday, she set out to see that goal achieved. Five years later, her computer is jammed full of stories — novels, novellas, short stories and dead-ends and six of her books have been published.

High school librarian by day and mother of two busy teenagers, Mari Carr found time for writing by squeezing it into the hours between 3 a.m. and daybreak when her family is asleep and the house is quiet.

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?
