“SLEEPING ‘TIL SUNRISE has quickly become one of my favorites of the series. If you’re looking for a quick M/M read that will charm a smile out of you, Mary Calmes is your gal.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve been looking forward to Essien’s story ever since he made his first appearance with his daughter, Ivy in SULTRY SUNSET. You may remember that I initially thought Hutch might actually get together with Essien but Mary Calmes surprised me instead. That being said, I was thrilled to see that Essien the Fire Chief would get his HEA in SLEEPING ‘TIL SUNRISE.

After his ex wife died, Essien has been the primary caretaker for his daughter. Ivy is as spirited and fun-loving as all of Calmes’ other characters but I really thought she was a joy to read about in this book because she has been trying to play matchmaker for her father. While being adorable, it also creates a lot of page time between father and daughter so I love that Calmes explored that in the very beginning to show how Ivy felt about her father and her stance on him dating other people.

As always, the romance occurs quite quickly in these books due to its short nature. But I was definitely rooting for Essien and Roark throughout. There’s something very charming about both these characters and I liked that Calmes focused a little bit more on their busy lifestyles. Since the both of them have such busy schedules, the fact that they are making time for romance and each other brings a sort of sweetness to the story, further strengthening their HEA.

SLEEPING ‘TIL SUNRISE has quickly become one of my favorites of the series. If you’re looking for a quick M/M read that will charm a smile out of you, Mary Calmes is your gal.

About Mary Calmes

Mary Calmes lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband and two children and loves all the seasons except summer. She graduated from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, with a bachelor's degree in English literature. Due to the fact that it is English lit and not English grammar, do not ask her to point out a clause for you, as it will so not happen. She loves writing, becoming immersed in the process, and falling into the work. She can even tell you what her characters smell like. She loves buying books and going to conventions to meet her fans.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
