“…when they finally came together…it was undeniable and explosive!” ~Under the Covers

This second installment prequel into the town of Madison and another step closer to finding out what happened to the Bell family.  This story is about the sister, Jensen.  She’s a badass cop and has been damaged and affected just like Tate was about their mother’s disappearance.  Now on the anniversary, Jensen’s emotions run high and her attraction for the new sexy DA can’t be denied any longer.

I always love a strong heroine but in this case, even though Jensen is tough and kick ass, she shows a very vulnerable side of her personality.  Dean West has been waiting for over a year to make his move.  His intentions towards Jensen are clear.  He doesn’t want just one night, he wants to be with her and give their attraction a chance to flourish into a relationship.  Maybe his timing was just right this time.  He’s just the rock she needs to get through finding out what happened to her mother.

I think the author did a great job of bringing these two characters together.  We get enough back story to know that this is not insta-love or even insta-lust.  They’ve been tiptoeing around each other for a long time.  That always helps me dive in easier with a short story like this.  And when they finally came together…it was undeniable and explosive!

Although I enjoyed Dean and Jensen, their connection and their chemistry, I think this story was a bit too short for me to form an attachment to the characters.  It was more interesting to see the unfolding of the bigger picture in the story, for me.  This felt more like a slice of life type story, even so, a very enjoyable one at that.  However, the writing is as always flawless and engaging and I can’t wait to see the final chapter in the Bell family saga, as well as diving deeper into Madison.

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.
