” I lapped it up and was left wanting to read more and ‘nap myself a New Species male of my own!” ~ Under the Covers

You don’t need a blurb for this book; all you need to know, is that you have one hot alpha New Species male and one feisty human female together and BOOM you have Brawn, New Species #5. And like the previous four, I lapped it up and was left wanting to read more and ‘nap myself a New Species male of my own!

But on to the reasons why I liked Brawn more specifically….

1. Brawn. Sexy. Alpha. Protective. Gorgeous. Hung like a horse. And did I mention sexy? I will never get tired of Laurann Dohner’s New Species males. they may all be cut from the same cloth, but dayum that cloth is fine. But I did especially like Brawn, he was protective and sweet, even if he did manage to balls up a few times.

2. Becca. The heroine of the story and someone who I did struggle with at first. But when I thought about it and the more I got know her i found I admired her. Life seemed to have kicked her about somewhat and she is tricked into thinking Brawn has done the same. But she still tries to do the right thing and I liked that.

3. Brawn. I know I have said this already, but it really does bare repeating.

I did enjoy reading this and I liked Becca and Brawn together, as always the chemistry between them was undeniable, making the sex scenes they had really hot. But also, there is nothing more entertaining and sweet than watching a New Species male trying to court his mate. Another good read from Laurann Dohner and I continue to really like this series, I highly recommend you give this a try.

About Laurann Dohner

NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

I'm a full time wife, mother, and author. I've been lucky enough to have spent over two decades with the love of my life and look forward to many, many more years with Mr. Laurann. I'm addicted to iced coffee, the occasional candy bar (or two), and trying to get at least five hours of sleep at night.

I love to write all kinds of stories. I think the best part about writing is the fact that real life is always uncertain, always tossing things at us that we have no control over, but when your write you can make sure there's always a happy ending. I love that about being an author. My favorite part is when I sit down at my computer desk, put on my headphones to listen to loud music to block out everything around me, so I can create worlds in front of me.

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?
