“Bryony and Leo have this simmering passion that draws them together even sometimes against their will and circumstances.”
~ Under the Covers

I read NOT QUITE A HUSBAND out of order *gasp* after author Elizabeth Michels recommended the book in an interview.  I’ve always been fascinated with India and seeing it from this time period was a welcomed treat!

There are many things I loved about this story, but also some where it fell a bit flat.  First, this is a second chance story and I am a sucker for those.  Bryony and Leo were married while still young, but they also made mistakes and it ended up with their marriage getting annulled.  Bryony followed her heart’s passion of becoming a surgeon and now is now working at a clinic in India.  This is also the time when Leo decides to win her back and leaves London behind to visit her there.  Most of this book is spent traveling through India as Leo and Bryony makes their way back to London, and paints a beautiful picture of the places, the people and the history.

Bryony and Leo have this simmering passion that draws them together even sometimes against their will and circumstances.  But what drove me crazy was the lack of communication, and the assumptions they both make about the other and what the other wants.  Which sometimes was going against even the other person’s actions.  They could’ve used a sit down and plain conversation much sooner.

Once they return to London I was introduced to the Marsden family and I definitely know I want to go back and read the previous book and will continue reading this series.

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.
