“…there was something, a spark of connection for me with the characters, to enjoy this one as much as I’ve done the other two in the past.” ~ Under the Covers

Well, here’s the thing with this book.  It’s sweet and enjoyable, and an entertaining read.  However, there was something, a spark of connection for me with the characters, to enjoy this one as much as I’ve done the other two in the past.

So let me tell you what I liked best.  The hero’s personality.  Aiden (Irish) is hot, all possessive and badass, with a side of danger he keeps covered up.  There’s an edge to him just under the surface, like a caged tiger.

What I didn’t connect with as much?  The couple’s connection.  I never got to the point where I cared what happened to either one of them that much.  I was going through the motions and was happy to see the end result, but I could take them or leave them.

What I didn’t like?  I thing I’ve reached my personal limit for the “I’m not good enough for her” plot.  When I don’t see a solid reason, and it has to be so good of a reason that I may not be able to think he can come back from it, then it annoys me to no end when it gets dragged on.  Add to that an easy resolution, because… well, it wasn’t such a big deal as he originally made it out to be in his head, and then my agitation grows more.

But all in all, I always enjoy Ms. Maxwell’s stories.  They’re sweet and sexy, with a dash of danger.  And I really hope the author has more in store for us in this series.  This time, I’d like to see an active fighter!

Another ten years would pass before she discovered a different means to accomplishing the same dream: writing stories of love and passion for romance addicts just like her.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

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.
