“Oh Mary Calmes. You just write the most delightful characters. There’s seriously nothing to hate about Scott and Boone.” ~ Under the Covers

Oh Mary Calmes. You just write the most delightful characters. There’s seriously nothing to hate about Scott and Boone. In this friends to lovers story, there’s plenty of heartwarming moments, charming moments and romantic ones. I still can’t get over the fact that Boone could be so alpha and yet so adoringly sweet at the same time. His jealously amused me and the fact that he didn’t realize he was in love with Scott until his friends had to tell him made me love him even more. I noticed that this is a common threat in all of Calmes stories – the heroes don’t realize just how hot or how charming they are until someone tells them.

This short story is actually part of a larger anthology that surrounds a cookbook that has some real history behind it. Handwritten and passed down for generations, I liked the common thread that these stories have. However, it didn’t seem that played up in this story. No matter though because there is plenty of other things that make this story enjoyable to read.

About Mary Calmes

Mary Calmes lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband and two children and loves all the seasons except summer. She graduated from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, with a bachelor's degree in English literature. Due to the fact that it is English lit and not English grammar, do not ask her to point out a clause for you, as it will so not happen. She loves writing, becoming immersed in the process, and falling into the work. She can even tell you what her characters smell like. She loves buying books and going to conventions to meet her fans.

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 (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

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!
