While too short to really delve into deeper passion, HER BEST LAID PLANS is a fun, fast romp that will entice readers and have them begging for more. ~ Under the Covers

Cara McKenna delivers a fun and flirty short story that takes place in Ireland. You know what that means right? We lucky readers get a hot Irish hero!

Conner Kelleher embodies all that women hope to encounter when they go on vacation. At the bar that his family own, this is where Jamie meets Conner. Since the story isn’t very long, you can expect instant chemistry between the two. McKenna plays it safe by keeping the banter light and flirtatious. However, I really thought that romance flitted across the surface of what it could have been if it had been longer. Just as we were introduced to both Jamie and Conner, I felt that they were instantly in love. I’m hoping for slower development so readers can sit back and enjoy before the book is through.

Nevertheless, HER BEST LAID PLANS gives a taste of what Cara McKenna is capable of. If you are new to her writing or have been wishing to try one of her books but don’t know where to start, I believe this is a safe one to venture into. After all, who can resist an Irish hero who is charming AND dirty at the same time?

While too short to really delve into deeper passion, HER BEST LAID PLANS is a fun, fast romp that will entice readers and have them begging for more.

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!
