“…I enjoyed the slightly repressed British romance…” ~ Under the Covers

Molly has come to Yorkshire and the small town of Riverdale to escape from her life and the memories of her fiancés betrayal. She doesn’t want anything disturbing the blanket of solitude she has thrown over herself. However, everything starts to change when she sees some strange lights in the sky, lights that lead her to Dr Phinn Baxter…naked, drunk and passed out in the middle of a field.

In general, I seem to read books written by Americans, not that there is a problem with that, I have gotten used to the slightly different grammar, spelling and the strange words that you guys like to use, for example, fanny… it means something different in the UK, so, when I first read that total confusion reigned. So reading a book written by a fellow Brit, it was nice, reassuring even and it surprised me what a difference it made to my reading experience. The familiar words and phrases, the cadence of the writing, even the personalities of the characters, it was all rather comforting.

However, although I definitely enjoyed the process of reading How I Wonder What You Are I found that the story itself was slow and it took me a while to really immerse myself in it. Rather than a steamy break neck pace with sudden flares of passion and drama, it was a gentle stroll with slow-building romance, involving lots of tears and lots of tea.

I don’t think this book would be for everyone, the romance was slow and the kinkiest it got was Molly tripping over and landing on a naked Phinn in the bath. However, I enjoyed the slightly repressed British romance, it made me laugh and so although this is my first book by Jane Lovering, it won’t be my last.

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?
