“ROCKY MOUNTAIN DEVIL felt very comfortable and nice…”
~ Under the Covers

It’s been a while since I’ve read a book in this series, mostly because I wasn’t paying attention and completely missed when this came out!  But what happens when there’s so much time between reading books for me?  I forget the characters!  So yeah, I went into this one without much recollection about Raphael Coleman.

What I was immediately excited about is the fact that Rafe and Laurel have been best friends since they were kids.  They used to get in trouble together, share all their special memories, as really good friends.  There was no one without the other.  And after some time apart where they had lives of their own apart from each other, they are finally back in town together and trying to make a relationship work.  Which is what they’ve always wanted.  Loved that!

There are some things about this book I really liked, like the fact that the pacing of the relationship makes sense for them reconnecting and even though they may want to jump feet first into dating and getting physical they still take things slow.  Not quite a slow burn, but almost?  That made sense to me.  Also, the characters themselves were very likeable and had their own personal struggles to deal with.

What I’m never a fan of and I’ve been happy not to see if so much in the books I’ve read lately is the “I’m no good for you because I’ll end up being like my father” mentality.  Whyyyy?????  I hate this!!!  So, this dragged down my enjoyment of the book a lot just because it kept making me stabby.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN DEVIL felt very comfortable and nice, which at times can also be a little boring, but it was overall a sweet read and it’s always nice to be back in this world Ms. Arend has created with all the sexy cowboys.  Now I’m left wanting more.

About Vivian Arend

Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one. Now a New York Times and USA bestselling author of over 30 novels and short stories in both contemporary and paranormal genres, Vivian continues to explore, write and otherwise keep herself well-entertained.

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.

Thanks for sharing your likes and dislikes. I agree, I have been seeing the ‘I’ll end up being like my father’ thing a lot lately.
