“It was insta lovey…I just didn’t buy into that.”
~ Under the Covers

I was excited to read this book because the blurb caught my eye.  Washed up pop star + disabled veteran, it was bound to be an interesting read.  I admit that this had parts that kept me interested and wanting to read more, but ultimately the execution was not my favorite.

Deacon was the lead singer for a band and they found quick fame but also it quickly fizzled out due to a scandal that ruined Deacon’s reputation and the band couldn’t recover.  Now he’s just lost custody of his dead brother’s kid and has a new stalker threatening him.  But after he cried wolf about a stalker before (or his PR company did) nobody will believe him.  Except Maverick.  He’s licking his wounds and drinking his sorrows away on his sisters’ couch and when she can’t meet with a new client (Deacon) he has to step up to the plate and fill in for her.

It was nice to see a hero that has been through so much.  Deacon was severely injured and scarred while in the military.  I was so interested to dig deep into his character and one of the things that I found a bit disappointing was that to me it felt it didn’t do that.  These are not problems that can be pushed aside easily and this book felt like that for me.  It was insta lovey and at times that “love” was the reason why Mav was able to push aside his drinking or his lack of pride and self esteem.  I just didn’t buy into that.

While I liked both characters individually I just couldn’t be invested in them in the context of this story.

About Victoria Sue

Victoria Sue… Wrote her first book on a dare from her hubby two years ago and he says he has regretted it every day since. Loves writing about gorgeous boys loving each other the best—especially with either a paranormal or a historical twist. Had a try at writing contemporary but failed spectacularly when it grew four legs and a tail. Loves her wolves! Is an English northern lass but is currently serving twenty to life in Florida—unfortunately, she spends more time chained to her computer than on a beach. Loves to hear from her readers and can be found most days lurking on Facebook.

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.

That’s a shame when there are good characters but their story doesn’t do them justice.
