“I will confess here that if there’s something I love to read in Tara Lain’s stories is exactly this pairing. The big massive alpha male and the very flamboyant twink. Jamal and Trixie have that in spades! Sweet and sexy.”
~ Under the Covers
I’ll start off by saying this. I was really looking forward to big Jamal Jones story from the moment he showed up in book one. He’s sweet, he loves his family, they support him fully, there is just something special about this massive guy that makes me want to cuddle him. And by massive I mean 6’7″ and 300lbs football player. There’s not much about him that doesn’t say big alpha male. He’s been open with his family about being bisexual, but after some developments with the team not being in favor of having a gay player, he’s decided to keep that side of himself in the closet. After all, he does like the company of women as well, right?
But that all changes when he sees Trixie for the first time. Now, I will confess here that if there’s something I love to read in Tara Lain’s stories is exactly this pairing. The big massive alpha male and the very flamboyant twink. Jamal and Trixie have that in spades! Sweet and sexy. In this case, Trixie LaRue is the drag queen persona of incredibly smart and gay activist Trevor. And I actually gobbled up the moments these two were together because this was so fun to watch. Whether he’s Trevor or Trixie, it added such different dynamics to their relationship.
Overall this was a really cute and sweet story! But then, there were things that annoyed me a bit. Lavinda, for one. Someone really needed to put that bitch in her place sooner. And there is the big miscommunication thing that makes me ranty. But as much as it has moments that I think could’ve been better, this was my favorite in the series. CANNING THE CENTER is just adorable.

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.
