“There are a lot of funny one liners and moments that made me smile.” ~ Under the Covers

I’ve been anticipating Evan’s book for a while.  He’s the Alpha of Takhini and has been looking and waiting to find his mate.  Especially after his human “girlfriend” just found her own mate and he was left single for the first time in a long time.   She just happens to have been sort of under his nose for a while, and has an agenda against him.

This is a sort of enemies to lovers story.  Amy comes to avenge the death of her brother, which she blames on Evan.  She comes as the Alpha of her own pack, Canyon.  A pack of misfits and wolves that don’t fit in with the Takhini lifestyle.  She’s a bit of a badass in a way, but I think a bit too “I’m woman, hear me roar” for my taste.  I love a strong heroine more than anything, but I guess she crossed into the bitchy territory for me.

As much as Amy is a strong heroine and a tough Alpha chick, Evan becomes much too beta for me.  He wants his mate, he knows there’s a huge misunderstanding and there’s reasons why she should hate him.  Until she knows the truth.  But the way he backs up and backs down sometimes made me fall a bit less in love with him.  I usually love his fun personality but when it comes to his mate, I want the Alpha to show.  And I didn’t feel I got that until the end of this story.

That aside, this book provided quite a bit of comedic relief because these two are hysterical.  And Shaun as well.  There are a lot of funny one liners and moments that made me smile.  For 80% this book was a very light read and then towards the end we got some action to rev things up.  I just can’t say that Evan and Amy will go down as one of my favorite couples.  But bring on the next one!

About Vivian Arend

Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one. Now a New York Times and USA bestselling author of over 30 novels and short stories in both contemporary and paranormal genres, Vivian continues to explore, write and otherwise keep herself well-entertained.

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.

Thanks for the review. I guess I’ll have to read it to decide if he changes too much for my liking…. Not sure I like a alpha who easily becomes beta…
