~ Under the Covers
As a longtime fan of the Nauti series, I was very excited when I heard about this book because I loved Chaya and Natches story. The heroine in this one, Angel, is Chaya’s long lost daughter. While it’s been a while since I’ve read the older Nauti books, it didn’t take long for memories to come back to me. What I struggled with following the story in this one was because I’ve skipped reading some of the spin off series and I missed some of the backstory for the romance setup between the hero and heroine of this story.
Now that being said… I didn’t miss a beat jumping right in. Duke McKay (a young cousin of Natches, and no Natches isn’t Angel’s father) has been chasing Angel for a while. They run in some of the same circles and now that she’s ready to come closer to her mother and sister and reveal who she really is, Duke sees the perfect opportunity for his in with her.
Lately, Lora Leigh’s books can be hit or miss for me. This one had everything that I loved about the original Nauti series. The plot is fast paced and action packed while still managing to be quite erotic in content. The balance was spot on and kept me interested throughout because I was just as interested in what was going on between Angel and her mother, and what danger was lurking around them, as I was with the romance. My only complaint is that I wanted the danger part to be incorporated a bit more. It felt like there was a lot of waiting around and then all that got resolved in one big push at the end.
On to Angel and Duke. I like kickass heroines and I thought Angel was a great one. She can definitely hang with all these bad boys and is so much like her mother. I really liked that. Also the tentative re-connection was done very well I think. Duke was more bland in my eyes. I didn’t dislike him at all. I liked him. But he didn’t stand out as an amazing alpha hero, if that makes sense? Even though he’s alpha and can definitely handle Angel.
This was a nice addition to the series nonetheless and I’m excited to read more from this world!

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.
