“To be honest, it’s starting to get a bit confusing about which books and characters are from which series and it’s even tougher to get the characters straight.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve been reading Melissa Foster for a long time and one of the things I most enjoyed about her books was the different characters and conflicts that all of her books had. She has written a lot of different books and series but I’ve found lately that a lot of them are starting to sound the same. This is especially true for this series, which is interconnected with many of her other series. To be honest, it’s starting to get a bit confusing about which books and characters are from which series and it’s even tougher to get the characters straight.

I used to really enjoy her characters, but found that with the dialogue, it became a little too forced, like perhaps she was trying too hard to make the stories light and funny. When this happens, it just puts strain on the pacing and makes me feel a bit awkward. I wasn’t a fan of the characters in this book and I didn’t like their banter at all. It just felt too forced for me and now, I’m wondering if its time to give up on this author. Her last few books have not been wins for me and this disappoints me because I used to really enjoy her books a few years back.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I don’t read her very often which is probably why I can go back but yes, sometimes you just have to take a (long) break from an author.
