“There are no complaints from me when it comes to the chemistry between them because they have it in spades!  It’s the outside of the bedroom that I wanted developed more.” ~Under the Covers

Let me start this off by saying I enjoyed this book a lot.  Hence the rating.  But I don’t think it quite satisfied my expectations.  After reading about Horse and getting shocked by his story, I think I was expecting the same shock value in this book.  Granted that’s there for sure, but I think it’s more in a way that the author was trying to push all these limits.  And at the same time trying to add every “element” she could to make this story a bit edgier.  Ruger and Sophie are a bit of a headcase both.  And together they make for a pretty unstable and volatile couple where things can explode any second.

There was so much potential there for a great setup in this story.  Girl sleeps with high school boyfriend, ends up pregnant, said boyfriend is a moron that can’t deal with the responsibility and proceeds to mess everything up thereafter.  Give birth on the side of the road because she couldn’t make it to the hospital with no other help in the process than her boyfriend’s step brother, Ruger.  From that moment on, Ruger has been like a father to that child…and he always had the hots for the baby’s momma.

One of my main complaints is the heroine.  She was a tough mom doing the right thing for her son and then she would have some TSTL moments, and things I just couldn’t compute.  Ruger on the other hand was downright mean most of the time.  However, you can definitely see that he loves Sophie and Noah, in his own way because that’s all he’s ever known.  Nevertheless, these two are very hawt and sexy together.  There are no complaints from me when it comes to the chemistry between them because they have it in spades!  It’s the outside of the bedroom that I wanted developed more.  Exploring more emotions and getting deeper.

Even though I can’t say I enjoyed this book as much as book one, I still liked to read about the MC lifestyle.  All the drama and the decisions and actions they have to take to keep their loved ones safe.  Sometimes those aren’t easy to deal with.  And even though Ruger isn’t shooting up to the top of my book boyfriend list, I still think he’s a sexy bad boy who may just feel to entitled to get his way.  I wish he would’ve been knocked down a couple of pegs more.

This book also gives the perfect setup for DEVIL’S GAME introducing us to another MC, and one that may just proof to be more ruthless.  I am very excited to see that!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

This book was good to me too. I’m really looking forward to Em’s story b/c I just know the conflict will rachet up just by who Liam really is.

Well that’s a valid point, because you have to either put your personal beliefs aside on what you would do or let happen. They’re definitely grittier books and may not be good for everyone but they are very entertaining stories!
