” I couldn’t go on. I mean literally couldn’t go on, I just kept seeing red. ”
~ Under the Covers

I’m going to keep this review relatively short and rein in my need to rant about things that annoy me. I stopped reading this book at 57%, so it’s not like I didn’t try. But my breaking point came when the hero, who up to this point had been displaying some pretty hardcore stalking behaviours got offended when the heroine called him on it. And then the heroine proceeded to apologise to him. APOLOGISED! I couldn’t go on. I mean literally couldn’t go on, I just kept seeing red.

If the hero hadn’t been so good looking I’m pretty sure this book would actually be a thriller, but because he’s gorgeous it’s okay for him to find out where she works and turn up there. It’s okay for him to insist on taking her home so he can find out where she lives…despite her repeated attempts to say no. It’s some how not weird that he thinks she’s “the one” and is now commencing a campaign of “persuasion”, which was actually stalking. If this guy was a foot shorter, with a beer gut and a receding hairline, would it be so sexy? No probably not.

The below is a quote directly from the heroine which just underlines what I’ve said and was a page or two before I stopped reading:

“…while that might have been creepy in anybody else, he definitely was making the spooky vibe work for him.”

Really?

Now, although I am not always a fan of over the top alphas, I am no a stranger to them and I’ve even been known to swoon over a few. But there was something about this book that crossed the line. Maybe it was the way he seemed to professing love, or rather ownership, in his head yet all I got a sense of was how much he liked her tits. There was no emotional connection and he just came across as leering and creepy. I felt like the ideal HEA for this book would be when he was locked up and she moved continents to ensure that he never found her again.spacer

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?
