Connor has created a poignant and moving romance.”

Stephen McKinney hasn’t been the same ever since his fiance was brutally murdered mere weeks before their wedding. He drowns his bitter anger and grieve behind alcohol and meaningless sex, and stays as far away from his family as he can. But, that starts to change when he meets the sweet yet vulnerable Hannah Walker. Hannah has been through a hellish experience the marks still visible all over her body, but it’s the mental scars that bother her the most. When she meets Stephen, she thinks she making a step in the right direction, no longer hiding herself away, or behind the protective barrier of her older brothers. But Stephen has scars and troubles of his own, ones that may prevent him from loving Hannah like she needs.

I don’t know why it took so long for me to read this book, I received the ARC last year, but it never quite got to the top of the pile, especially as I really enjoyed the first book, Worth the Fall. What a fool I was! I really liked this book, like the first book it was a sweet read, with both characters being vulnerable in their own way and it was lovely to see two such lonely damaged people come together.

Hannah went through a truly terrifying and harrowing experience when she was a teenager, one that left her scarred and scared of everything, especially men. Because of this, she has very little interaction with anyone outside of her overprotective (and extremely hot) brothers. Watching Hannah learning to trust Stephen and Stephen letting go of his anger enough to love Hannah was fantastic. They had great sexual chemistry from the start as well, I liked how Connor built it up, how they had to overcome their own personal demons to take their relationship to the next level. Connor created a poignant and moving romance.

Another enjoyable read from Claudia Connor, I enjoyed seeing Hannah and Stephen come together, as well as taking a peek back into Abby and Matt’s life. This is a really good family based contemporary romance, it has some sweet and sexy main couples, surrounded by a great mix of secondary characters, I definitely recommend you give it a read.

p.s. I really hope she does a Walker Brother spin off, those over-protective hunks deserve a HEA!

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?

ARC Review: Worth the Wait by Claudia Connor – Under the Covers Book Blog

[…] in this book, it’s told through Nick and Mia, not Hannah, if you want that, you need to read Worth the Risk– it isn’t a depressing book. I just found it emotional, life hasn’t taken it easy on either […]
