“Never Been Kissed managed to be both extremely funny and incredibly touching,” ~ Under the Covers
I bought this on a whim, I love the insecure, slightly chubby nerdy girl meeting hot guy with tats (and nipple piercing *swoon*) kind of books and this one slotted right in. Add in the cute factor with an adorable 4 year old boy and bam! Sold. And I didn’t regret it, Never Been Kissed managed to be both extremely funny and incredibly touching.
I couldn’t help but love proud nerd Sera, whose wardrobe consists mostly of jeans and nerdy t-shirts, how could I not when I rock some nerdy t-shirts of my own? As for Hunter, you like an angsty hero with a mysterious past and more issues than you can shake a stick at (and did I mention the nipple piercing?) than he is definitely your man. Together, adorable.
The reason I didn’t give this a higher rating, is because although I did understand and could even empathise with Sera’s constant self criticism and her almost certainty that Hunter was playing her, despite his many protestations and displays to the opposite, I found it really frustrating after a certain point.
However, I did really enjoy the romance and the humour in this book, and the bond between Sera and Matty, Hunter’s son, was lovely and I enjoyed the development of that as much as the romantic relationship. This looks as though it is going to be a series, so I am definitely going to keep an eye out for the next book so I can what C.M. Kars has in store for us next.

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?
