I just didn’t connect very well with this book ~ Under the Covers
Marty has an addiction. No matter how much she distances herself, no matter what she does, the addiction is always on her mind. Tristan Black. He has ignore her since high school, is the biggest ass hole she has ever met and yet, somehow, she still is head over heels for him. Having Marty close by is like torture for Tristan, he needs her, but pushing her away is for her own good, he has secrets, dangerous ones…
I am a big fan of R.L. Mathewson, so I was pleased when I saw this book, somehow I had missed it in my initial R.L. Mathewson binge! But, although I enjoyed it and it had a vibe similar to the books in her Neighbour from Hell series, it seemed to lose its way once a paranormal element was inserted into the book.
In general though, I just didn’t connect very well with this book, the characters although I liked them, they were so similar to her characters form other books, that I found myself getting bored. The introduction of the paranormal although I liked the idea, the last 25% of Black Heart became really drawn out and a little tedious, which meant excitement I felt over certain events in the book quickly dissipated.
But, despite this seeming like a fairly negative review, I did like the book, especially the beginning. It made me laugh and it had some great sexy moments as well. I will also continue to read this series, so all in all, I definitely don’t regret that £0.49 I spent on Black Heart.

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?
