“…an engaging and fast paced mystery with plenty of twists and turns.”
~ Under the Covers

When police find Hayley Powell, she’s covered in blood and next to the body of a man whose been stabbed to death. She’s clearly traumatised and all she keeps repeating is “What have I done?”. As a favour for a friend Morgan Dane and Lance Kruger takes on Hayley’s defence and believe despite the overwhelming evidence something isn’t quite right. So, when Morgan and Lance’s lives are repeatedly put in danger by an unknown culprit it makes them even more certain of Hayley’s innocence.

Melinda Leigh has yet again done a fabulous job of penning an engaging and fast paced mystery with plenty of twists and turns. But, it isn’t just the interesting mystery that keeps you reading it is also the characters that you have grown to know and love over the last 4 books.

What I’ve Done immediately grabs you attention. It starts from Hayley’s POV showing her waking up not remembering what happened the night before. Then realising she is covered in blood. From there the story quickly progresses and you get caught up in the investigation. As Morgan, Lance and Sharp dig up leads and possible suspects the story just gets more intriguing and whilst reading I had many theories about the who and why circling in my mind.

However, as I said above, it isn’t just the mystery that gets you hooked into this series. The characters of Morgan, Lance, Sharp and Morgan’s family also draw you in. The romance between Morgan and Lance and the father-son type relationship between Lance and Sharp give this book a warmth that shines through even as you delve into a mystery involving rape and murder.

This is another great installment in the series and I can’t wait to see what Leigh has in store next for Morgan and Lance. If you like a good mystery with a hint of romance, then this is the series for you. spacer

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?

Ooh I love that cover, with the leaves and the rainy street, at night. I love the premise too- no memory, covered in blood. Yikes! Glad this was good, sounds like a fun series.
