“Do yourself a favor and read this series. It’s got the charm, the humor and the passion that I adore in my romances.” ~ Under the Covers

 Flynn McCauley and his brothers are a one of a kind family filled with teasing, roughhousing, and loads of good times. So it’s really no wonder why he’s known for causing mischief around town. Flynn possesses those dangerous good looks and with that killer charm, it’s only a matter of time before Maddie succumbs to him. But though I make it sound easy, it doesn’t go as smoothly as one may think.

Maddie has just quit her job after her sleazebag boss tried to make a move on her. In addition, she also recently broke up with her foot doctor boyfriend so the last thing Maddie wants to see when she gets home is another good-for-nothing man.

Flynn and Maddie have an instant chemistry and although it is lust based, Marie Harte doesn’t just throw them into bed together and just let them got at it. She infuses the book with a lot of charming moments, moments that build on the romance and sexual tension so that by the time Flynn is saying those dirty words, you’re absolutely DYING for them to be together. It’s no surprise here that there’s a lot of sex. Neither are ready for commitment, but they are both in for surprise when their no-strings-attached relationship turns into something far more precious.

While all the books are very, VERY hot, I think this one might actually be the hottest of the series. Harte doesn’t hold back at all. It’s downright filthy in some scenes and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Here’s scene that I randomly pulled up. It’s not even the hottest scene of the book so I think the quote can speak for itself:

“Flynn. Flynn.” She shattered, coming all over his lips and tongue as her pleasure took her over. In a daze, she moved where he positioned her, bent over the back of the couch while he hurried to shove a condom over himself.

“Now feel it while I fuck you.” He rammed himself inside her, sliding right through the slick, tight passage. “You’re pussy is so hot, baby. So fucking perfect.”

Do yourself a favor and read this series. It’s got the charm, the humor and the passion that I adore in my romances.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I have this series on my Kindle from Netgalley. I need to work it into my reading schedule soon. But I have to catch up/finish a couple of other contemporary series first before starting another one. LOL
