“… if you are looking for something untaxing to escape with, then this is the perfect read.”
~ Under the Covers

What do you do when you are stuck in a blizzard with a box covered in elves with outsized appendages and you happen to bump into the man you’ve had a crush on since high school? Well, luckily for Holly, Kalen is a gentleman and they end up sharing a lift together so they can get to their perspective Christmases. However, things go to bad to worse and they end up having to share a cozy cabin together over Christmas.

I don’t have the best luck with Christmas reads, I never seem to find any I like, but I’m on a mission to find at least a couple that I can fall in love with and Big Package is my first step in that journey. It wasn’t an entirely unsuccessful step, at least I didn’t fall flat on my face; however, I wasn’t exactly skipping down the road to success either. Suffice to say I’m feeling a bit lukewarm about this scorching hot Christmas read.

This is a short, sexy read where the characters have an instant attraction and then circumstances force them together, with explosive results. And this was a really sweet story and if you are looking for something untaxing to escape with, then this is the perfect read. Unfortunately I just found it a bit bland and forgettable.

P.S. I probably should warn you though the hero does come with a mighty large…package

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?

I have to admit that the cover and title were a lure when I saw it as a new release

Thanks for your review, it was very helpful. Funny, that I’ve read a similar review in another blog and I’m, definitely, not looking for a forgettable reading.

Thanks for the review, I like short stories sometimes. I use these as pallet cleansers between heavy reads or when I’m short on time.
