~ Under the Covers
Claudia Connor’s books are always a delight. They are the perfect romance books for when you want something sweet and sincere to lift your mood. In Waiting For You the second in the McKinney/Walker series we are treated to a gorgeous fireman hero Zach Walker as he falls for ER nurse Nora as well as her young son.
If you’ve read previous books by Connor, which you really should, then you will recognise Zach as the playboy of the Walker family and over protective brother of a previous heroine (and younger brother of a previous hero). So, when I started this I was expecting it to be about ‘taming’ the bad boy/play boy hero, which isn’t a trope I am a fan of, but I love Connor’s books so I was willing to take a chance. I am so glad that I did. Zach was far more nuanced than I expected and there was no ‘taming’ needed. Like all Connor heroes he was kind, caring and loyal, but had his own demons holding him back from ever making a true commitment to a woman.
Nora is a hardworking single mum who has learnt only to rely on herself. She was strong, loyal and loving, and so self reliant that learning to trust someone else, especially a man, takes time. I loved Zach and Nora together, the almost-slow burn relationship between them was lovely. Both characters were wary of love and relationships, so watching them build a friendship – fraught as it was with sexual tension – made the romance feel strong. Also, the scenes with Will, Nora’s son, made this book too adorable.
If you are looking for a sweet and sexy read, you need to give this book and this author a try.

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?
