“…romance itself fell a bit flat.”
~ Under the Covers

Set in a dystopian future world where everyone is closely watched and living with an undercurrent of fear in artificial Domes Cities. Talented techie Lilith Galernon is arrested for a crime she didn’t commit and gets thrown into a war she didn’t know was being fought. Between creatures she didn’t know existed.

It’s hard to put an exact genre name on this one, it has aspects of sci-fi with its future world setting and some of the devices they talk about. But, it also has elements of PNR with the demon-like and angel-like characters that populate the book. Then, there is also a slight fantasy feel to the book as well…it’s very confusing. So, if you are in the mood for a book that is defying genre conventions, this is definitely for you.

Of course, no matter what genre I plonk it into (I decided PNR) it’s the romance that hooks us. Ranove, our hero, isn’t human, he’s from a demon-like species, with horns, claws and wings and a weakness to light. But isn’t just his appearance that is different. Ranove’s race are fierce and ruthless fighters who have spent generations battling for their survival. They view humans as the slaves of their enemy.

This was a fairly action packed romance, something I usually enjoy. However, the hero and heroine are kept apart for the more fast paced parts of the book. And, when they are ‘together’ they spend most of the time apart. The only time I felt like they had a connection was when they first met and were forced into a prison cell together. However, as the book went on, the chemistry between Ranove and Lilith seemed to fade away and they didn’t quite click as a couple for me.

Although I liked the book and enjoyed the dystopian PNR/Sci-Fi world that Trombley created the romance itself fell a bit flat. However, I was intrigued enough that I will be picking up the next book in the series and give it a second chance.

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?
