“I found Phoenix to be especially enjoyable and I really loved her strong bond with her sister, Ridley.”
~ Under the Covers

COOPER’S CHARM is the first book in a new series by Lori Foster. I initially thought that this would be a Women’s Fiction novel, which is why I picked it up in the first place. But I’m quickly realizing a trend here with Romance authors. Even though the blurb sounds more like a Women’s Fiction novel, the contents inside will most likely be a straight up Romance.

I was a bit disappointed by this but because I enjoyed the couple, I could let it go. This book starts off really well. I enjoyed both the hero and the heroine’s personalities. I found Phoenix to be especially enjoyable and I really loved her strong bond with her sister, Ridley. I feel like with Romance novels, sibling relationships aren’t always emphasized so I really loved that Foster decided to make Ridley such an important character to Phoenix.

The book wanes in the middle and I think that’s because the author tried to introduce secondary characters into the mix all at once. I don’t mind building that sense of community but it did slow the book down considerably, especially as they have conversations about nothing. To me, it slowed down the book too much.

So, this book is a lot of fun, but just be aware that there are going to be slow point. I feel like they are things that you can get over and so, I’m looking forward to trying the next book in the series to see what Foster decides to do next!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Sorry to hear you’re disappointed…I bought this ahead because of Lori’s donation of $1 per pre order to animal welfare…she does write dependable stories, though…you know what you’re getting. she’s such a good soul.
