I love this book, it always comes to mind when I need something sweet and funny to relax with ~ Under the Covers

Gracie Snow is a completely innocent, stubborn, but curious 30 year old seeking adventure. Luckily her new job working for a Hollywood studio should provide all the excitement she hopes for. Her first assignment is to collect Bobby Tom Denton, a former American football player, and bring him to the film set so they can start filming his first film. Simple? Not really, but Gracie risks life, limb and her heart to get him there. 

I love this book, it always comes to mind when I need something sweet and funny to relax with. It is particularly effective when used in tangent with a glass of wine and a bubble bath! The charming characters, romance and humour never let me down. 

What always has me coming back for more is the main characters; Gracie Snow and Bobby Tom Denton. You could feel Bobby Tom’s charisma and personality pouring out of the book and reeling you in, not that he was perfect, he has an ego a mile wide, but you love him anyways. And Gracie was so funny and sweet; I couldn’t help but like her. Some of the situations that Gracie finds herself in are hilarious, I couldn’t wait to see what she would do next.

Together Gracie and Bobby Tom make a great couple, the chemistry between them is sizzling and watching their battle of wits is both funny and endearing. This book also has secondary romance between an older couple, which was a nice addition, it didn’t get lots of page time but it was still an enjoyable part of the book. 

If you haven’t tried this book, I highly recommend you pick it up, it is perfect for either snuggling up to in the winter and tanning with in the summer!

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?
