“It caught my attention enough that I will want to continue with the next installment.” Under the Covers
Megan Hart doesn’t hold much back. The first installment in this serial is not about love and the butterflies that come along with it. Simone has been watching Elliott late at night while he has sex with plenty of women in his office. She can see him when she works late in her own office. Until one day they run into each other in the elevator and she decides to try and fulfill some of her fantasies with him.
Keeping in mind the fact that this is a serial, and is hard to judge a character because you don’t know the back story and the reason why he acts the way he does, I have honestly say I wasn’t a big fan of Eliott. So far he’s come across as judgmental himself. I can’t wait to see him get knocked a few pegs down.
I think Simone could also work a bit on her self esteem. She hasn’t had a real relationship, other than a regular booty call guy and her voyeuristic moments peering into Elliott’s office.
I don’t know if I would consider this a typical Megan Hart read yet because we haven’t gone any deeper into what makes the characters tick. I will say that with the unconventional setup this has a bright potential for getting there!
For a first installment, I enjoyed this story. It caught my attention enough that I will want to continue with the next installment. However, I didn’t feel that the cliffhanger I was expecting at the end was all consuming as others. Yes, I want to know what happens next. But just as if I had the full length book in my hands and had to put it down for a bit. I guess I’ve been reading so many cliffhangers lately that leave me wanting to pull my hair out and sell it to get the next part that I was expecting more.

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.
