“The biggest selling point of this series is definitely Tara. This girl is an absolute hoot.”
~ Under the Covers

If you’re looking for something fun but still suspenseful and full of action, then you’re going to love the Tara Holloway series. Tara is an IRS special agent. Wait! I know what you’re thinking…taxes…BORING! But no, this series is far from that. This series is actually quite hilarious and full of action so if you’re anything like me, you might be surprised with how much you’re going to like this series.

The biggest selling point of this series is definitely Tara. This girl is an absolute hoot. She’s fun and feisty and I just enjoy being in her head. She’s definitely someone I would love to be friends with. The narrative is often upbeat and spunky but there is also a great romance that blooms throughout the series. Nick Pratt has always been the apple of my eye ever since she started working alongside him. What’s interesting about this book is that Tara’s ex, Brett Ellington is now involved in her newest investigation. Talk about awkward! I love it and I have loved seeing these characters progress.

I do have one thing to say, if you’ve followed this series from the beginning then some of the jokes and lines the author uses may return again and again. Sometimes I didn’t mind it, but other times I did. It can feel slightly repetitive, but then again, they are good jokes. I just think that if you’re a loyal fan, you’d get tired of it. However, if you’re reading this as a standalone, it would still be fresh to you.

I’ve really enjoyed the journey of this series so far and seeing where Tara has ended up. And I also think if you enjoy the humor and style of Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series, then you’d probably like this series as well.

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!
