“This has got to be Kristen Ashley’s hottest book to date!” ~ Under the Covers

Quick, someone grab a fan and cool me down! This has got to be Kristen Ashley’s hottest book to date! I swear I am still blushing (and maybe panting a little) from reading it. The sexy times may take some time to arrive but when they do hold on to your hats and grab a spare pair of knickers; you’re going to need them.

If you have ever read a Kristen Ashley book, then you will know exactly what to expect with Deacon the heroes may be a little rougher in her Unfinished Heroes series and the books more erotic, but you are still left with Ashley’s highly addictive combination of tough alpha hero, with more muscles and testosterone than a football locker room and an intense romance where the heroine can’t help but be swept off her feet. And what girl could resist being swept off her feet by Deacon? He has made an appearance in Ashley’s previous books and his back story proved both sadder and more interesting than I expected. I really enjoyed reading and seeing him get his well deserved happy ending with Cassidy, the heroine.

But, I did find this book to be fairly slow, it definitely isn’t for you if you want something snappy and fast paced, the first part of the book did drag along and then it seemed as soon as it picked up the pace I had reached the end and they were having a very steamy epilogue that had me eyes fixed on the screen and my hand reaching for….a glass of ice water.

Another fantastic book from Kristen Ashley, I really am a KA Addict and cannot WAIT for whatever she wants to release next.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

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?

Love her series. I started with the Mystery Men series and from there never got any housework done for a month. I am so looking forward to this book but didn’t like the review part where it says this book is slow moving.however, not a problem will read this in no time once it gets out.

I’m definitely a KA addict. Everything she writes is awesome and I expect nothing less than what your review states. A hot alpha male and a feisty heroine extreme situations. All the makings of a great KA book. Looking forward to reading it.

I love Kristen Ashley’s series. I got started with her Rock Chick series and then I just couldn’t stop. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of this book and your review definitely made me want to read it that much more. I reviewed Rock Chick on my blog, Reading Shy With Aly. Here’s the link: http://readingshy.blogspot.ca/2014/04/rock-chick-by-kristen-ashley.html.

I liked the review! I also am a KA fan and I am sure I will love it, however it disturbs me to hear it’s slow paced considering its a book under 300 pages, kind of on the short side for her but I am a fan so I m sure it will rock!!!!!!!!
