“I think I overloaded on sweet when I was reading this book”
~ Under the Covers

Clare Franklin has never been lucky in love and on her way to her honeymoon, alone after her fiancée left her for another woman on the day of the wedding, she has decided to give up on it. However, she can’t deny the feelings she is developing for Deacon Montgomery, a man she meets in the resort. But is it just a holiday fling? Or, like her, does he want more? That question seems answered when he suddenly disappears without a word. Deacon is in a panic when he leaves Clare without just a hastily scrawled note left behind reception, one of his twin daughters, daughters he hasn’t told Clare about, has been rushed to the hospital. She never contacts him. But he can’t stop thinking about her, was it just a holiday fling for her? Or, like him, does she want more?

I think I overloaded on sweet when I was reading this book. Not only did I have to contend with a perfect hero who seemed to always know when to say the right thing. There were also adorable twin toddlers. Then adorable twin newborns. Truly, the cuteness was off the charts disgusting. I’m blaming this book for the pounds I put on that week.

However, as cute as it was I didn’t really find the romance compelling and unfortunately there were parts of the book where I was bored. Clare and Deacon although pleasant characters just weren’t that interesting and after the holiday romance section of the book was over the pace slowed way way down.

There were aspects that I did like, I enjoyed that Deacon was the single parent in this scenario rather than it being the heroine. There’s something very attractive about a man who loves his children.

This was an enjoyable book and if you want something super sweet and adorable to read then this is just what the doctor ordered. However, I think Connor has done a much better job with a single parent holiday romance in her book Worth the Wait, which was one of my favourite reads last year.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?

LOL, yes, it would be great to blame sweet books for the pounds. It sounds cute and I’m a sucker for a holiday romance and single dad so I might have to give it a go. 🙂
