“I didn’t like the characters, the story or the romance”
~ Under the Covers
I’ve been on a Sci Fi romance kick recently and I wanted something a little different, which is why I picked up Wild Blood. A cyborg spider? I definitely haven’t read that before and there’s nothing I enjoy more than a weird alien hero, especially if the author gets me to fall in love with them. Sadly, in this book, that wasn’t the case.
So, why didn’t I fall in love? Was it because Dommik was too weird for me? Nope, I’ve read stranger. In fact, I got tired of Dommik monologuing to himself about how different and monstrous he was. I also found the heroine, Katalina, tiresome as well, she was either scared or horny, sometimes both. I found the whole thing, including the romance very melodramatic, she hated him, she loved him, she hated him again…by the end I didn’t care.
I didn’t really enjoy this book, from the blurb it sounded exactly like the kind of story I love, however, the delivery just didn’t hook me and it needed editing properly. I don’t usually comment on editing, however, in this case the strange sometimes nonsensical phrasing and dialogue helped with my overall dislike of this book. Overall I didn’t like the characters, the story or the romance so I probably won’t continue with this series.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
