“…it was cheesy, over the top and yet I ate it up and finished the last page with a smile on my face. ”
~ Under the Covers
Normally when I love a book, but it has an awful cover, much like Treyvon I say something along the lines of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’. However, I feel like the cover describes this book perfectly, yes it’s kind of cheesy with the big buff guy staring sternly at you, pecs and biceps bulging. Yet…when I see it, it makes me smile, so although it isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing, or the sexiest cover I still kind of like it anyway. Which, in a nutshell describes my feelings for this book. I really enjoyed it, it was cheesy, over the top and yet I ate it up and finished the last page with a smile on my face.
This is the second book in the Kaliszians series and Eidem hits us again with a mixture of sci-fi, mysticism and romance. Although this is a strange combination and logically it doesn’t make much, if any, sense I like these books enough that I work a little harder than I normally would at suspending my disbelief. So when my brain is screaming at me that it doesn’t make sense, which believe me happens a loy, I just tell it to shut the hell up and I continued enjoying the book.
One of the things I liked was the romance. As always it was really sweet and I like that it doesn’t just jump in, it builds itself up. Despite Treyvon being a big tough alien, with more muscles then the guy on the cover, he’s actually a big ol’ marshmallow when it comes to the heroine. So, if you fancy some great escapism, give this book a try, although I recommend you read the Nikhil the first book in the series first. In fact, I recommend you start at the beginning, this series is a spin off of the Tornian series.

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?
