~ Under the Covers
I picked this book up on a whim because I wanted to read something wintery and I always look for storylines set on the slopes. 🙂 Something about that just makes me happy around the beginning of the New Year. I have read this author before and I had some mixed feelings going in but I gave it a shot anyway. It was… very different than what I was expecting, with both good and bad things about it.
First of, our main characters here have a bit of an age difference. Crash is a young and is just now starting to make his mark on the sport, while Miles may be looking at his last chance at being on top. They have had completely different life experiences, not just because of age but because of their circumstances. There’s also the fact that Crash used to idolize Miles since he was a kid, then crushed big time on him when he was a teenager. So being on a team together is hitting all of Crash’s fanboy buttons. More than that, when Miles has to take a more hands-on approach to keep Crash from making a bad impression in front of the media, all of Crash’s fantasies may come to life.
While I’m not sure I bought into the relationship, other than the physical, on Miles end I think this story gave us some steam. The romance aspect was hard for me to get into because Crash is a bit too young and immature for my liking and I thought Miles was so far away in maturity level from him that any type of relationship between them wouldn’t work in my head at least for the future. But seeing Crash’s starry eyed adoration for Miles was endearing and probably the one thing about this book that kept me reading.
This was a fast read with the the setting I was looking for so I was glad I picked it up. I’m not sure I’ll be looking to read more from this series, though.

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.
