“…it just never managed to snag my interest and have me eager to read more” ~ Under the Covers

Catherine Johnson has traveled to a small town in Nebreska to become the town’s teacher and to escape the painful memories of her dead fiancee. She never expects that she would have to come to rescue of the deaf man after she seems him brutally beaten. She also never expects the instant connection and attraction she feels towards him. But taking another risk on love may require more courage than she possess, especially with the huge difference in their social stations.

I grabbed this book on impulse as I wanted something a little bit different, and it isn’t often you get a deaf hero, but I admit to a little bit of disappointment. Not because the book is awful, it just never managed to snag my interest and have me eager to read more. It was all a little ordinary. 

I did like the hero Jim, it was hard not to, he was so completely and sometimes naively in love with Catherine, that it was almost heartbreaking. My heart wanted to shake Catherine and ask how she could even think of rejecting a man so perfect. However, my head reasoned that what she was feeling was probably completely right and someone of her station would think twice before committing to a virtually penniless odd jobs man with no prospects, deaf or not. 

There was also a slight intrigue element in this book, with a baddie in the background trying to buy up the town. Which, our hero and heroine managed to get embroiled in. It was only a small part of the story and was basically used to usher the romance along, but it did add some excitement. 

Not one of my favourite reads, but also not awful, it just never really caught my attention and I imagine this will be a book that I quickly forget.


About Bonnie Dee

I began telling stories as a child. Whenever there was a sleepover, I was the designated ghost tale teller. I still have a story printed on yellow legal paper in second grade about a ghost, a witch and a talking cat.

Writing childish stories for my own pleasure led to majoring in English at college. Like most English majors, I dreamed of writing a novel, but at that time in my life didn't have the necessary focus and follow through. Then life happened. A husband and children occupied the next twenty years and it was only in 2000 that I began writing again.

I enjoy dabbling in many genres. Each gives me a different way to express myself. I've developed a habit of writing every day that's almost an addiction. I don't think I could stop now if I tried.

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?
