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.spacer

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?

I’ve only read her historical romances but I’ve enjoyed them very much

Although I think her historicals are better, her writing is still so amazing in contemporary. Blue Eyed Devil and Dream Lake are some of my FAVORITE of her contemporaries, and by that I mean amazing. This is a great series, you should give it a shot! ~ Francesca

Like Elizabeth, I’ve only read LK historical books. But I’ve been hearing about this LK contemporary series for some time that in the future, I plan to read it. My TBR list is long, so it will be a while before I get to it.
