“…perfect if you want a paranormal romance on the cute side.”
~ Under the Covers

Destroy doesn’t have the best reputation in Whispers. The gargoyle is known to be selfish, shallow and arrogant; always rushing in without thinking. Destroy knows they’re wrong, he’s a handsome and good male, worthy of their loyalty and respect. His problem isn’t selfishness, but loneliness. He longs to have a mate of his own to take care of. So, when he discovers Rowan’s is his mate he is determined to show her exactly what a fantastic and handsome male he is.

I have been so excited for this book! When reading Carnage the first book in the Whispers of the Bayou series I feel in love with Destroy. He’s impulsive and arrogant, but demonstrated that despite this his heart was in the right place. All he needed was someone to guide and befriend him so he could show his protective and caring side.

In Destroy the lonely male finds his mate and finally gets a chance at the love he longs for. However, Rowan, a witch, is afraid of her powers and worries that the handsome gargoyle claiming her is just attracted to her magic. I loved watching Destroy trying to win over Rowan, much like Carnage it develops into a very sweet romance.

But, although I enjoyed, they do spend a lot of this book apart. Although this was necessary to move the story forward and for character development, it seemed they jumped from knowing on another for a few days, being apart for a while and then suddenly in love and living as a mated couple. However, they had an abundance of chemistry and the scenes between them were adorable, so it wasn’t such a big leap.

What I love about this series is that although the romance is the focus, there is also a good amount of time devoted to the other characters in Whispers. This sets up future romances and gives these books warmth as you get to know and love the residents of Whispers.

This was another great book in this series, perfect if you want a paranormal romance on the cute side. It has also set up the next book really well and I can’t wait to see the next romance unfurl!

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?

Fabulous review suzanne!!! I love this book series so much!! Destroy and all the characters are so layered and so awesome!!! I want them all to get their own books!! I’m more of a hot sex and bad boy paranormal romance readed,but these characters touched me deep inside,their all different but they intertwine so beautiful together and you root for them and want them to find love and happiness. To me that’s what a great writer can do,she doesn’t need hot sex and bad boys to write a great read,almost like jude deveraux one of the best romance writers of… Read more »
