“If you like your heroes big, sexy and alpha and the chemistry steaming up off the pages then look no further than DON’T WALK AWAY! You’ll be hooked like I was!” ~ Under the Covers
I admit that even though I’ve been a fan of both of these authors for a long while, I have dragged my butt in starting this series. Why???? The DreamMakers series has such a fun premise. Three ex military dudes find themselves back home after their service and needing to come up with something to do. So they start a dating service. Naturally! LOL I think that’s brilliant and now having read this book I’ll rectify my mistake and go back and read books 1 and 2.
That being said, DON’T WALK AWAY is a sweet second chance romance story. You know I’m a sucker for those. And this is so sweet! Dean Colter is now a manwhore extraordinaire but deep down there’s only been one woman he’s loved since forever. Since the days when he wasn’t a player and waited years to take one girls’ virginity. Since he made a huge mistake and lost the love of his life. He’s never been able to even apologize since. But life has a way of dumping Emma back on his lap. And this time Dean is determined from the get-go to keep her there.
I loved Emma’s character. She’s just tough enough but full of female empowerment. She’s become successful on her own and taken from life what she deserved. Now that she has the man she once loved and broke her heart delivered on a platter, she’s also woman enough to take what he’s offering. There isn’t a lot of fighting attractions and rehashing the past, which sometimes can bug down a story. Just two great characters reconnecting and rekindling their love.
Another thing I loved? The camaraderie between the whole cast of characters. We see glimpses from the previous two couples, as well as two upcoming couples, and the friendship between the whole gang is one of my favorite things. It’s definitely an element I always look for in a good contemporary romance and gives this book an instant feeling of comfort for me.
If you like your heroes big, sexy and alpha and the chemistry steaming up off the pages then look no further than DON’T WALK AWAY! You’ll be hooked like I was!

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
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.
