“I didn’t hate it. However, I also didn’t love it.”
~ Under the Covers

Normally I avoid books about bikers, with a few exceptions, it isn’t a troupe that does anything but irritate me. However, I couldn’t resist the blurb of this one…big burly bikers masquerading as wedding planners? I had to give it a try. So, I bravely picked it up and decided to read outside my norm. Did it work out? Kind of. I didn’t hate it. However, I also didn’t love it.

Firstly, the reason I picked this up is because I love a book that employs humour. If an author can get me to laugh a few times than I am happy. And this book definitely managed to put a smile on my face, the unexpectedness of hard eyed and tough bikers arguing about flower arrangements and wedding finger foods was very funny. Sadly, it was only the people surrounding the hero and heroine who were fun, the hero and heroine themselves seemed to suck all the joy out of the room. It was strange having these two angsty characters plonked into the middle of a setting ripe for a romantic comedy and it didn’t work for me.

I’m keeping this review fairly short, as although there were enjoyable parts of the book and it was no hardship to read it, it wasn’t quite my cup of tea. However, depending on the blurb of the next book I would give this series a second chance as although I didn’t hit it off with the hero and heroine in this one, I did like the characters surrounding them.

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?

Biker books aren’t my cup of tea. Maybe book 2 will be better and I can start there.
