“…it’s incredibly well written and it delivered everything I used to love about reading this genre….”
~ Under the Covers

When I was looking for erotic romances to read this year for the Roundabout Challenge, I had to give Skye Warren a try.  I’ve wanted to read her for years and in fact I think I marked two of her books on my original list for the challenge.  This was my first one and I wanted to try one that would lead into a series if I enjoyed it.  In many ways while reading this, I wished I had read this years ago when my love for erotic romance was higher.  Why?  Because it’s incredibly well written and it delivered everything I used to love about reading this genre.

LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE was a little dark and dangerous without going overboard with it.  It’s incredibly sexy and hot as well.  But I think it may have been playing it a little safe?  I thought this was a dark erotic series and while reading it I kept expecting it to go darker but I don’t think it ever did.  That’s the thing about expectations though because if I take that away from my experience then this book was really enjoyable in terms of the storyline.

What I had a harder time with was connecting with the characters.  I liked them ok but I never cared enough about them to be consumed about their final outcome.  I felt bad for Honor but I also found her a little naive and annoying.  And that made me feel bad because I should’ve only felt terrible for the position she was in and for how she was trying to keep her sister safe.

However, all that being said I will continue the series when I need this kind of fix.  I would say so far this is great for fans of Shayla Black’s Wicked Lovers series.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

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.

When I can’t connect with characters, I don’t usually stick with a series. There are too many out there just waiting for me!
