“Penny Reid has bamboozled me in to really enjoying a  New Adult book (or at least part of one). That woman has wiles.” ~ Under the Covers

I don’t know what to say. I know, it is unusual for me, I normally have far too much to say. But, I think I need to give myself a minute to calm down, one from the frustration, I KNEW there was going to be a massive cliff hanger…yet I couldn’t resist reading it anyway! And two, because once again Penny Reid has bamboozled me in to really enjoying a  New Adult book (or at least part of one). That woman has wiles.

I once again got sucked in to Kaitlyn and Martin, especially Kaitlyn. Normally I am all over the hot, broody males, and Martin certainly reaches that criteria, but Kaitlyn stole the show for me. I love my heroines hilarious and awkward, especially when they are hilariously awkward, so she ticked all those boxes, but I also liked her she looked at the world, which was earnest and insightful, maybe slightly naïve, but completely adorable. As for Martin, I have mentioned his sexiness..but is it strange that I like that I don’t like him very much? He has his ‘awww’ moments and I like how head over feet he is for Kaitlyn, but otherwise…what a jerk! I can’t wait for him to redeem himself.

I now wait with baited breath for the next and final installment in this serial, Kaitlyn and Martin have come so far, I can’t wait for them to take that final step!

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?
