“Overall, MAI TAI’D UP is a fun loving romance. It was just missing a bigger spark to draw me in fully.” ~ Under the Covers
Beauty queen and socialite, Chloe leaves an artificial life because she wants to feel alive, to feel love and passion, and be an adult. She’s never had to work a day in her life. She’s never had responsibilities. Until she moves to her father’s Monterrey house and starts a new life. One that includes rescuing dogs and meeting a sexy vet.
We first met Chloe in SCREWDRIVERED and I was left curious as to her relationship and her upcoming wedding to a man she obviously didn’t love. But although I went into this book with no expectations, you know me and not reading blurbs when I follow an author, I think there was just something missing.
It seems that it’s just going to be my experience in this series to go through ups and downs. I enjoyed SCREWDRIVERED a lot! I think looking back that was because I really liked the heroine. In MAI TAI’D UP, although I still enjoyed the book, it wasn’t to the same level as the previous book. There were just things about Chloe that I ultimately didn’t connect to. And there were some issues in the story that the author resolved a bit too quickly.
I loved the attitude of the hero, Lucas. He made Chloe feel comfortable all the time, at ease in his presence. A friendship quickly started and flourished thanks to him. Can’t say he was perfect, but he was pretty close to that.
Overall, MAI TAI’D UP is a fun loving romance. It was just missing a bigger spark to draw me in fully. Although I still say that these books read more like chick lit with a dash of romance.

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.
