” I liked the differences between these two in all aspects and how they complimented each other.”
~ Under the Covers
I will admit this was all about that cover! Gahhhh I needed to know more about those two in the cover immediately. So here I am reading a new author to me and I found I quite enjoy Roan Parrish.
IN THE MIDDLE OF SOMEWHERE is the story of Daniel who is taking a professor position in a small town in Michigan. This is light years from the big city he’s used to and he’s not sure that it’s what he wants to do. But he has no other choices at the moment but to take this position. He looks the part of city boy, maybe even a bit of a wild bad boy with all his tats and attitude. But he’s hiding a soft and hurt inside. Hurt by his family, hurt by men.
In a chance encounter he meets Rex. He’s got the masculine lumberjack look going but he’s also a bit of a loner. I liked the differences between these two in all aspects and how they complimented each other. And I think they had awesome chemistry!
What made this book lag a bit for me was Daniel in general as a character. This book is narrated in his POV so at times all his insecurities and way of thinking was getting to me a bit. I think switching POVs would’ve helped here to get me away from his ramblings for a bit. I also think it could’ve been edited down a bit.
I do like that the author didn’t let any one episode drag with angst which I find could’ve easily happened where Daniel was involved. He is socially awkward and sometimes you have to wonder how he even has a PhD in English. But overall, I enjoyed Rex and the story kept me interested. I will probably continue reading this series as well.

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.
