“…while I found the romance really cute (adorable even!), it got a bit boring at times…”
~ Under the Covers
When I first saw that this would be a book centered around a male model (and maybe cover models) I was both intrigued and weary. I guess being around the book world long enough and seeing these models in real life and talking to them, you get disappointed at the majority of them. I was dreading a meat head. But rest assured! That is not what this is about!!! In fact, Adam is the models’ anti-model. He’s down to earth, smart, funny, sexy, hot and geeky! He’s resorted to modeling because he just needs the cash. And there’s a good reason he does.
His one ally in this crazy world, where he goes to live at the “model” house sort of like a reality show but just not on TV, is Solo. She’s one of the girls that keeps the photographer’s life running and manages the model’s schedules. Sometimes assists at shoots. And she’s Adam’s geeky other half. Their connection is instant and I honestly loved their easy banter and quick chemistry. They are just too sweet together!
But while I found the romance really cute (adorable even!), it got a bit boring at times and I couldn’t wrap my brain around some of the more serious subjects that we are trying to deal with as well. How can we be battling a life threatening moment, and the next we are talking about his dating life like nothing happened? That took some away from the serious aspects of the story and I sort of discarded the feels that I should’ve had for that.
Even though this is not reality TV, it sort of reads like one. So if you are into those reads (and I have been in the past) then you’ll enjoy this one! I wish there would’ve been a bit better conflict between the characters, and a bit more depth to the story, but it’s a cute read with really likeable characters. I wouldn’t mind reading more about some of them!

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
