“There’s only so many ways of saying I LOVED IT, LET THE ALIEN HAVE ME, that I can come up with. ”
~ Under the Covers
Willa’s been watching the way these strange blue, behorned…aliens have been treating Gren. He may look like a wild untamed beast, but he’s still a person and the more they treat him like an animal, the more he fights. So, although the blue aliens have been nothing but kind to her and her fellow humans after rescuing them from a crashed spaceship, she starts formulating a plan to free Gren and escape Icehome.
I feel like my reviews of Ruby Dixon’s books are becoming slightly repetitive. There’s only so many ways of saying I LOVED IT, LET THE ALIEN HAVE ME, that I can come up with. Although Willa’s Beast has been successful at shifting my day dreams away from sexy blue and horny aliens to scarred and growly – think Beast from Beauty and the Beast – type aliens.
I recently did a post about heroes that fit in to the wild and untamed category. Heroes that are ferocious and instinctual, but strangely innocent of normal social conventions. Gren fits perfectly into this breed of hero. Created by slavers, he was expected to fight and then die for a crowd’s entertainment and his owner’s bank account. He’s never experienced kindness of care from anyone, until Willa.
Willa knows about real monsters, having been raised by them. She knows that a beautiful appearance doesn’t mean anything, her mother was beautiful but she was a beast. Gren, despite his beastly appearance is no monster. I loved Willa’s devotion to Gren, and my favourite part of this book was the beginning when they just escaped and were surviving together and before they knew each others language. Dixon managed to quickly develop a bond between them that was both sweet but rife with sexual tension.
This was another great alien romance by Ruby Dixon. The story managed to be both sexy as hell but incredibly sweet. And, as well as the romance, we get to see the other people in Icehome and the possible developing romances that Dixon is building. I can’t wait to see who will be resonating next!

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?
