“The chemistry between Sean and Elise is undeniable.”
~ Under the Covers

During the course of the first book, we found out that the one O’Neil brother who moved away to Boston to pursue his medical career had a quick one night stand with the chef at the Snow Crystal Resort.  Now that his grandfather collapses and he’s back home for a while he recovers, he doesn’t see why they can’t pick up where they left off and have a fling.

Elise is a strong heroine.  She’s tough, she knows what she wants, she goes after it or pushes it away.  Her choice, her life, on her terms.  After the events in her past, that’s the only way she’s found to live and survive.  She’s the type of woman you have to admire for that tenacity to move on, her dedication to her job and that need to belong that is still deep insider her.  The O’Neil family gave her the opportunity to blossom.

Sean’s backstory I had a bit of a harder time with.  It’s one of those lack of communication issues that I usually hate.  He’s been harboring all this anger towards his grandfather, the Snow Crystal Resort and the town because of his views of his father’s life.  Some things that could’ve been resolved a lot sooner, had they all sat down to talk.  But nevertheless, I liked Sean’s character.

The chemistry between Sean and Elise is undeniable.  It’s as much a burning physical thing as the fact that they just have fun in each other’s company.  I loved seeing that ease.  And of course, I loved the fact that we get a bit more from the O’Neil clan, even with their meddling and their issues.

I see a pattern for the endings in this series.  But as much as I didn’t love that aspect of this book, I did want to see what happened go down the way it did.  Now I finally get to read about  Tyler!

If you are looking for sweet small town romance, then you will enjoy this one!  They work well as standalones but you obviously enjoy more of the family dynamics if you read in order.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

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.
