“He’s got everything you’ll ever want to add to your book boyfriend list.  He’s definitely going on mine.”
~ Under the Covers

It is no secret that I’ve been fangirling all over this series.  I’ll be honest here and say I wasn’t dying to get to Tucker as much because I feel like he’s not the bad boy of the group so I hadn’t built him up in my mind as much.  But we did have an idea what was coming because of how THE SCORE ended.  And I should’ve known Ms. Kennedy was going to grab me right away.

Tucker is… pure sexy man.  And he’s such a good man that you’ll forget you ever wanted a bad boy to reform to begin with.  He’s got everything you’ll ever want to add to your book boyfriend list.  He’s definitely going on mine.  Once you hear that dirty talk of his, you’ll understand why.  The man is so perfect yet quiet and understated.  He doesn’t need to scream his prowess from the rooftops.  He’s just got it.  That beard, that body, the moves… and then halfway through the book you’ll get to see him in a new role and …. goo I tell you.  It doesn’t get much better than Tucker.

Sabrina is a character I would normally be a bit turned off by, she’s aloof and at times only concerned about herself.  But we also get from the beginning why she’s had to be like that her whole life and why she needs to achieve the things she wants.  Her life hasn’t been easy and she feels she has to achieve everything on her own.  That makes for some bad decisions on her part in this book.  But I couldn’t help but respect the hell out of her.  Loving Tucker was something completely foreign to her and she didn’t want to get in the way of his planned future.  So while she was hard-headed, I also managed to like her quite a bit!

This story takes place for part of it during the events of THE SCORE, and we also re-live those hard moments we know are coming.  But one thing we didn’t get to explore was how that one moment affected different people.  It changed the course for a lot of their lives by making them change how they were looking at their future.  That was nice to see.

So if you’re going in expecting this sexy bad boy to tame, this isn’t it.  But it’s the perfect story to fit in with this group of awesome guys.  I can’t wait to continue reading about them as this is STILL my favorite new adult 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.
