“As far as the heat? Dax and Holland sizzled! ”
~ Under the Covers
The intrigue in this series always keeps me interested and this book seemed like it could’ve moved things along quite nicely. Instead, it was more of a tease. BIG EASY TEMPTATION features Dax Spencer and his one and only love, NCIS agent Holland Kirk. He’s been in love with her as long as he can remember but he’s also been badly betrayed by her. Or so he thought.
This book goes back and forth in time just a bit to give us a good glimpse of what that betrayal was and how it affects their relationship today. But personally, I wish that past would’ve been glossed over more and that we had gotten more in terms of moving forward in the present. Both for the relationship between Dax and Holland and for the overall answers we want in the series plot.
As far as the heat? Dax and Holland sizzled! He’s very alpha and she’s a tough chick and when these two head strong characters crash, there’s definitely lots of sparks flying. It was so easy to see and believe that they were IT for each other and that love was what kept them from finding other people to be happy with even in the years they were apart.
This book definitely leaves us with lots of questions and anxious to continue reading to get to the bottom of this whole conspiracy. And of course to see Zach and Roman get their HEAs. As it’s obvious the President will be last, I hope Roman’s book is next so Dax’s sister can shake up his perfect world.

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.
