“…it was a cute sports romance but I felt like it was just a bit too underwhelming for my taste.”
~ Under the Covers

Is there even a question about why I took a chance on this book? Yeah, I mean that cover!!!!  I’ve never heard of this author before and I thought it sounded like a cute sports romance.  And in the end, it was a cute sports romance but I felt like it was just a bit too underwhelming for my taste.

There were definitely things I liked about it.  The way the main characters initially meet is adorable.  And the hero himself is as well.  He’s sweet and has a sense of responsibility wanting to make life the best it can be for his daughter.  I just warmed up to him really fast!  But the heroine on the other hand, not so much.  Maybe it’s the fact that she’s young and she doesn’t have her life together.  Like at all.  She felt too immature for my liking and that goes not only for where she is in life but her reactions to things.

Another thing I did like was the nerdy stuff. 😉  The heroine and the hero’s daughter bond over their love of comics and there’s even some cosplay going on.  I loved every second of that and how the author incorporated that into the relationship between the main characters as well.  It was both cute and sexy at the same time.

I did enjoy reading this and it was a quick read but I’m not sure if it’s left me interested enough in continuing reading the series.

About Liz Lincoln

Liz has been concocting stories as long as she can remember, and from the beginning they involved two people falling in love.

When she's not writing, she spends her time rooting for the UW Badgers and the Green Bay Packers (or yearning for the return of football season), cross-stitching and embroidering sassy sayings or nerdy characters (Wonder Woman is her favorite), and drinking too much Diet Coke.

She lives in Milwaukee, WI, with her husband, two kids, two cats, and a turtle.

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.

It really is an eye-catching cover. The immaturity would probably put me off, though.
