“As expected, I enjoyed the book, I don’t think Kleypas is capable of writing something I won’t like”
~ Under the Covers
We finally get the last single Travis sibling, Joe’s book! Although this isn’t something I have personally been pining for I still couldn’t wait to read it, it is Lisa Kleypas after all. Up and coming wedding planner Avery Crosslin doesn’t believe in love, especially love at first sight, at least not for her; however, Joe Travis seems to be challenging her belief.
As expected, I enjoyed the book, I don’t think Kleypas is capable of writing something I won’t like, her writing was fantastic and her characters were likable; what she has created is a light-hearted and sweet romance. But, this book lacked the intensity and impact the other books in the Travis series were packing. I will never forget Hardy and Haven; Jack and Ella and even Liberty and Gage, each story grabbed me and churned the emotions out of me. Brown-Eyed Girl lacked that same intensity of emotion and connection and instead of a captivating read it was just a nice one.
But, in a market saturated with mediocre releases, this definitely shines, Lisa Kleypas seemingly effortlessly producing a quality book perfect for relaxing with.

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?
