“…this was a sweet, feel good romance, I don’t think there’s much about it that will make it stand out for me…”
~ Under the Covers

This is my first Stina Lindenblatt read and I was lured by the cute baby pic on the cover.  I mean, seriously?  Who can resist that?  So while my ovaries were bursting, I cracked this open.  Holly and Josh have been attracted to each other since they met, but because they are both so career oriented and not interested in dating, they decided they were better off as friends.  And good friends at that.  But that hasn’t stopped the attraction and things came to a boiling point one drunken night.  After that there might’ve been a few more nights of a convenient no-commitment arrangement.  And then the positive pregnancy test came up.

I really liked Josh and how he handled everything, despite his young age and the unplanned responsibility.  This was the second book of the month I read with almost this same scenario and the heroines have turned out to be the ones with more issues.  Holly definitely has some of those to work through.  But at the same time she’s a very confident woman.  I struggled with connect with her the most in this story.

While this was a sweet, feel good romance, I don’t think there’s much about it that will make it stand out for me and remember down the road.  It lacked a certain something that made this somewhat overused plot and simple characters go to the next level.  But it was still an enjoyable read.

About Stina Lindenblatt

Born in Brighton England, I have lived in a number of countries, including England, the U.S, Finland, and Canada.

I have a Physical Education degree from the University of Calgary and a Masters of Science in Exercise Physiology from the University of Alberta, where I specialized in energy metabolism. Definitely cool stuff (seriously, it is!). I also had the opportunity to work with elite athletes through the universities and at several sport-training facilities (you know, in case you’re wondering why I always have athletes in my stories). During my undergrad, I worked in Helsinki (Finland) for one summer, cleaning bathrooms and saunas in a recreation center for the elderly. The seniors were great. The bathrooms, not so much. I eventually became a pharmaceutical sales representative (not a great one may I add) and now I write full time.

In addition to writing fiction, I love photography, especially the close-up variety, and currently live in Calgary, Canada, with my husband and three kids.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

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.
