“BOY TOY is actually my favorite in the series. ”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve been excited about this series since reading the first one because I thought it was a cute romantic comedy series.  Humor is often a hard one for me in books because I tend to not go with the flow so much so I don’t binge romcoms in general.  That being said, I can’t put my finger on how or why some of them work and some don’t. But this series is one that always delivers at least and enjoyable experience for me.

BOY TOY is actually my favorite in the series.  It’s not quite as funny, I think the title of funniest still goes to book 1 for me.  But it’s certainly the most endearing.  The hero is younger than the heroine, she’s divorced and raising her two daughters on her own trying to figure out her new role in life as their sole caregiver.  That comes with a set of struggles she’s learning to navigate on itself.  And then there’s Liam, who happens to be in charge of her kids at the daycare she’s using.  But also, he was a teenager she used to babysit (along with his much younger siblings) when she was in college.

I absolutely adored the connection that was there between Liam and Sadie, especially the fact that he’s been head over heels in love with her since he was 16.  He’s measured up all women against the fantasy of his babysitter and now he actually has a shot.  Their age difference is not huge, but it made for an interesting dynamic in this story.

This is the perfect light hearted and fun story.  I couldn’t have enjoyed it more.  From the fact that Liam is incredibly sexy, to the fact he’s adorable with the kids AND he also has a good head on his shoulders.  Their chemistry is instant and the pacing just kept me turning the pages.  You won’t want to miss this one!

About Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen writes steamy, angsty contemporary romance from Vermont's Green Mountains. (Her ancestors began logging and farming Vermont during the 18th century. These were rugged, outdoor types without benefit of a laptop or a good latte. It boggles the mind.)

Sarina enjoys skiing, skating and good food. She lives in Windsor County, Vermont, with her family, eight chickens and too much ski gear and hockey equipment.

About Tanya Eby

Tanya is a starving artist without the starving part. Maybe, then, she's a snacking artist. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan with her two kids and tiki-obssessed husband and writes quirky fiction.

After writing a gripping, dark, gothic novel IN THE GARDEN ROOM, Tanya decided to switch it up. She's hard at work on a romcom, which doesn't feel like work at all.

She likes to keep things interesting.

She is also an award-winning narrator and audiobook publisher. She has been lucky to narrate some of the best books around...600 and counting! Many of the books she narrates are NY Times bestsellers.

She loves the challenge of narrating and truly adores words. Reading other writers' work encourages her to keep working on her own.

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.
