“…this is still a cute romcom…”
~ Under the Covers

I picked this book up on a whim because I’ve been wanting to try this author for some time and saw this was on KU.

Rachel is out celebrating her 27th birthday and ends up getting a little too tipsy and having a one night stand with a hot bad boy she met at a bar.  That night of crazy also ended up with her doing something that caused her to lose her job and now she finds herself with the opportunity to pursue her real passion.  That’s where she runs back into Jimmy and they have to compete for the same position.

One thing I really enjoyed was the focus on wine and the fact that Jimmy’s family is in the wine business.  That’s why I’m classifying this as “culinary” btw.  The passion for wine that was portrayed was a nice touch even though at times it may have veered too into the technical for me. But I loved seeing the characters have a shared passion for something that’s inherently sensual to begin with.  It’s a sensory experience!

My main complain about this story is that I found it dragging and boring at times.  I feel like there was a missed opportunity in not amping up the story.  LEGS is quite character driven but at the same time some of the issues that could’ve been explored more to add depth to the story I felt like they weren’t.  And that made for some lackluster pacing in my opinion which resulted in my lack of connection.

However, this is still a cute romcom.  I’m probably overly critical in some of the things I like and expect from books.  I think it’s entirely possible I’ll try more from this author and see if my feelings are just for this story instead of the style of writing in general.

About Kelly Siskind

A small-town girl at heart, Kelly moved from the city to open a cheese shop with her husband in northern Ontario. When she’s not neck deep in cheese or out hiking, you can find her, notepad in hand, scribbling down one of the many plot bunnies bouncing around in her head.

She laughs at her own jokes and has been known to eat her feelings—gummy bears heal all. She’s also an incurable romantic, devouring romance novels into the wee hours of the morning.

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.
