Neil and Elaina’s romance seethes with passion, drama and angst, so much so that it becomes a lethal combination and also a trademark for Miller now. ~ Under the Covers

Elaina Morrison knows what it feels like to experience unrequited love. Neil McManus is a man who has always been in her life but hasn’t been more than a good friend of hers. When tragedy strikes and they are separated, Elaina learns how hard it is to let go.

On one night when she gets pissed drunk and encounters her cheating boyfriend, Neil is there, as always, but something is different now. Coming back, Neil finally realizes what he almost lost and what he cherishes the most. Brimming with angst and drama, Raine Miller slathers on the emotion in this book. It’s easy to believe that there is too much drama in the book, but what makes it acceptable is the fact that Neil and Elaina react in believable ways so that it doesn’t come across as over the top or unnecessary.

Though technically this book is part of the Blackstone Affair series, CHERRY GIRL can be read as a standalone. Neil and Elaina’s romance seethes with passion, drama and angst, so much so that it becomes a lethal combination and also a trademark for Miller now. I’ve now come to expect all this and more when I pick up a Raine Miller book.

While I can’t say that Neil swept me off my feet like Ethan Blackstone did, I do think that he is such a great soldier and hero. With a heart of gold, Neil always tries to do what’s best for Elaina, making him the perfect man that she always believed him to be.

About Raine Miller

Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A part-time teacher and writer of sexy romance stories every other chance she gets pretty much fills her days. She has a handsome prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. Her sons know she likes to write stories, but gratefully have never asked to read any, thank God! Raine loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books.

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!
