The only thing I hated? That it ended ~ Under the Covers
Natalie has been looking for her birth parents for the last six years, juggling three jobs with her PhD classes to fund it. However, she never expected her search to have such life changing consequences and ones that involve Alexei Sevastyan “The Siberian”. Sevastyan is the first man who has ever really excited her, but completely off limits but once she gets a taste of him, all she can think of is having more.
This is an actual text I sent to the other girls at Under the Covers whilst I was reading this book: “I am DYING here, someone either get me some icy water or a vibrator”. Note to self: Never read any more of this series when at work. Other (and more important) note to self: If a hot Russian comes to kidnap you. Don’t. Resist.
From the first meeting between Natalie and Sevastyan the book crackled with sensuality, the couple had some serious sexual tension, which when it broke had me drooling and sending the above text to the girls, only for it all to build up all over again, leaving me in a slobbering mess. Kresley Cole really knows how to write her sex scenes and with the added element of control and BDSM it just made everything that much hotter.
If I hadn’t known this was written by Kresley Cole, her characters would have given her away, especially Natalie, she is reminiscent of the Valkyries in her Immortals After Dark series, clever, smart ass and teeny bit crazy. I loved her. As for Sevastyan, he was as dangerous as any of her vampires and oozed just as much dark sensuality, he has quite easily entered the ranks of my book boyfriends.
The only thing I hated? That it ended, I was desperately trying to turn the last page hoping there would be more, alas there wasn’t and I am now waiting eagerly (and impatiently) for the next installment.

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?
