“I know it is never a good sign when at the end of the book, I am relieved that I have managed to finish it.” ~ Under the Covers
Christofer doesn’t really have much to live for, even though he seems to have eternal life, his sister is growing older and when she gone he will have nobody left to card for. That is, until Cloe, his sister’s caregiver bounds into his life. Cloe aggravates, annoys and arouses him all at once and all he wants to do is taste her delicious smelling blood. All the more reason to get her to leave, as he knows once he starts he won’t be able to stop and the last thing he wants to do is hurt her. However, with a nighmare from Cloe’s past chasing her and Sentinels looking for Chris to try and protect him, they must stick together to stay alive.
I know it is never a good sign when at the end of the book I am relieved that I have managed to finish it. And that is how I felt when I reached the last page of Tall, Silent & Lethal. Utter relief that I was finally done. It wasn’t that the book was unreadable and it did manage to make me smile a few times; however, I thought it was over long without enough content to keep it interesting, what might have been s fast paced, funny, sexy read turned cumbersome and a bit boring.
The book did have Mathewson’s trademark sarcastic humour, which I did enjoy and although I like the idea behind the series, there isn’t enough plot in this to keep the book going at more than a snail’s pace, or enough that anything outside what the main couple is doing is very interesting. The couple themselves, Cloe and Chris were good together, they certainly had great sexual chemistry and the banter between them was hilarious. But I do feel like each couple in this series is essentially the same, which is part of the reason I found this book hard to get through, I felt like I had read it before.
Unfortunately Tall, Silent & Lethal didn’t meet my expectations and isn’t something I would recommend or reread, if you want to read something from R.L. Mathweson, I highly recommend you start her Neighbour From Hell series instead.

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?
