“This story was cute and entertaining for the time I was reading it but in the end is rather… forgettable.”
~ Under the Covers
I’ve been daringly trying out new authors this year. This was one such case. I’d never read this author before but I had no trouble jumping into book two of this series. However, I feel like maybe had I had some attachment to the characters coming into this, maybe I would’ve enjoyed it more.
Alexander is a known womanizer. Or so the ton thinks of him. He now desperately needs to get his beloved grandmother to move out to the country because someone is trying to kill him and he needs her safe. His only option is to convince her lady companion, Elizabeth, to help him convince her. Elizabeth doesn’t know the real reason he’s trying to get rid of his grandmother and asks him to do three things to make his grandmother happy before she agrees to help him. And while living under the same roof, sparks fly between the demure Beth and the famous rake.
This story was cute and entertaining for the time I was reading it but in the end is rather… forgettable. I wasn’t really drawn to care deeply for either one of the characters and the mystery aspect wasn’t catching my interest enough either. So while this was a fun way to pass the time I don’t think this is a series I plan on continuing.

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.
