“I’m glad Calmes decided to come back to this series after all these years.”
~ Under the Covers

First off, I had no idea that Mary Calmes was going to writing more stories in this series so when I saw this book, I snatched it up right away. I’m a big fan of Mary Calmes’ writing style because she instantly makes you fall in love with every one of her characters. I don’t know how she does it, but she always does such a good job with her characterization. Although this book is set in Timing, this book actually features Glenn Holloway and not the main couple of the previous books. While I was a tad disappointed about learning this in the beginning, it was quickly overshadowed by how much I liked Glenn.

Glenn is a very good man. He’s made his own success and although he can be a tad intimidating sometimes, he is a great guy. Mac, to my surprise, is the guy he ends up with. I was a little bit surprised at first, but I just rolled with it. I really liked them together but the only thing I would say is that this book kind of put the romance in the back seat. I really felt like this was Glenn’s book as opposed to a Glenn and Mac book. I don’t know if that’s because it’s a shorter story and the author didn’t have enough time to explore all aspects of their relationship, but I would’ve loved to have read more of them together. Nevertheless, I’m glad Calmes decided to come back to this series after all these years.

About Mary Calmes

Mary Calmes lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband and two children and loves all the seasons except summer. She graduated from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, with a bachelor's degree in English literature. Due to the fact that it is English lit and not English grammar, do not ask her to point out a clause for you, as it will so not happen. She loves writing, becoming immersed in the process, and falling into the work. She can even tell you what her characters smell like. She loves buying books and going to conventions to meet her fans.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
