“I fell a little in love with each page I turned.” ~ Under the Covers

I’ve always been a fan of author Elle Kennedy, but I was nervous about my like of the book when I picked up THE DEAL.  And then she blew me away.  It’s like she had this whole other writing voice insider of her and I gobbled it all up!  But then I was nervous again to read THE MISTAKE.  Could it be as good as the first one?  Well, have no fear…. THE MISTAKE is the perfect follow up to THE DEAL and a book that you will all fall in love with.  Yes, again.

I liked John Logan from the very beginning of THE DEAL and I thought the poor thing, he deserves an HEA.  Getting to know him more now, he’s sexy, he’s alpha, and surprisingly he was really affected by NOT getting the girl before.  He’s been on a self destructive path for a while because of that.  Until by chance he meets Grace.  She’s just uncomplicated enough to be the right thing he needed to let his guard down.  And what starts off as just some fun turns into deeper feelings.

I think the author did an amazing job with the progression of the story and how they became good friends first.  With plenty of things in common.  It was sweet and incredibly sexy to watch, errr read.  We peel the layers of both characters as the story progresses together, and I fell a little in love with each page I turned.

This is what good writing is all about.  Elle Kennedy does it time and time again.  Whether she’s writing some angry sex (no, not in this book!) or a sweet story.  The heat level is high, the characters are deep, the story worms its way inside you.  That’s the mark of a great storyteller in my book, and I’ll continue reading and recommending her books!  Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.

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.
