Here at UTC, we can be a little old skool. Most of our favourite authors have been around for years and no many new series make it into our auto-buy lists. So, we thought doing these posts would not only help us find new things, but also allow others to find older series that perhaps they haven’t encountered before but which we still hold dear to our heart.
I am a huge fan of Kristen Ashley and I’m not the only one. She seemed to explode into the romance community a few years ago and most people have atleast given one of her books a try. Her mixture of uber-alpha heroes with an allergy to personal pronouns and story lines that go into the everyday almost as much as the main plot line have a Marmite type of affect on people; you either love it or hate it. But, whatever your opinion, you can’t deny Ashley’s popularity.
This popularity has left readers with a hankering for something just as tasty as what Ashley has to offer. As one of those people who fell in love with Ashley, I can relate, her books – especially her earlier works – charmed me despite their flaws. Indeed, it was perhaps the flaws that charmed me most. So, when I recently tried a new author, whose style reminded me of Ashley, I needed to share.
Layla Frost is a new discovery, a book I bought on a whim and straight away it made me think of Kristen Ashley. Not the story, but the feel of it, the uber alpha male, the quirky, innocent type of heroine. It was a fun book and if you do like Kristen Ashley, I highly recommend that you give Frost a try.
