“In the very beginning, Calmes does a good job of establishing their relationship as friends. We get the backstory, but it’s done in a way that doesn’t feel like it’s being shoved down your throat. She keeps everything fun and engaging, sliding in some jokes here and there as well.”
~ Under the Covers

It’s been a hot minute since I read a Mary Calmes book, so picking up this one felt like coming back home. I am just in love with her voice. It truly shines with every book she writes. Witty and charming, it’s impossible not to fall in love with her characters.

Once again, I found myself enjoying Joe and Kade’s story. Calmes gives them a healthy shot of personality so you really feel like you can get to know them well. In the very beginning, Calmes does a good job of establishing their relationship as friends. We get the backstory, but it’s done in a way that doesn’t feel like it’s being shoved down your throat. She keeps everything fun and engaging, sliding in some jokes here and there as well.

By the time we get into the heat of the story, readers are right there with her, feeling desperation rise as Kade and Joe decide if they want to be together. There’s a great tension between them and I especially loved the sparks of jealousy that each emits with when the other with someone else. It’s very cute.

Since this is a novella, things move at a very fast-paced. I would’ve liked it more if things slowed down more, but that’s probably because I enjoyed this book a lot.

About Mary Calmes

Mary Calmes lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband and two children and loves all the seasons except summer. She graduated from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, with a bachelor's degree in English literature. Due to the fact that it is English lit and not English grammar, do not ask her to point out a clause for you, as it will so not happen. She loves writing, becoming immersed in the process, and falling into the work. She can even tell you what her characters smell like. She loves buying books and going to conventions to meet her fans.
