“THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE felt right from the start.”
~ Under the Covers
When I read the first part of this duet, something was off to me. Some people said that they thought I would enjoy the second one more. 🙂 Well, I’m here to tell you that’s exactly what happened. And this will be a hard review to do without spoiling it so I’ll probably keep it short.
Have you ever felt like there was something keeping you from fully connecting with a book and you can’t quite put your finger on it? Then all of a sudden you have an aha! moment and it’s all so clear. I had my aha! moment while reading the second installment in this duet. Everything made sense. Why I was loving this one so much more, and why the first one I had problems with. THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE felt right from the start.
I connected with this book in a way I didn’t with the first one. I loved the characters, all of them. I could sympathize with their pain. I admit I wish some of the problems, which are serious emotional issues, would’ve been shown as addressed a little more in the end. That’s my one complaint about this book. It ends rather easily and simply. And left me thinking: what about those issues? Maybe some more time should’ve passed and had the characters come back a little more emotionally stable. That might’ve been something I could believe in.
Even with that, this was a great story. Addictive from start to finish. I kind of just wanted to forget the first book ever happened and just think of this as a one book story. But that wouldn’t work, would it?

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.
