 I have a feeling this will fall in a vault in my mind where all the other generic PNR books are currently stored, never to be remembered again. ~ Under the Covers

Elle has spent her 300 years as a Grimm trying to forget her Michael, Not-So- Charming Prince from her mortal life, but it looks like her time for avoiding him is done. They have a mission together but the feelings Elle thought she had faded come surging to live as she looks in to Michael’s gorgeous green eyes.

I find this book/novella (it was very short) hard to review, as although it was okay it just didn’t hit the right spot for me. There was nothing bad about it, the sex was hot and there was a little bit of everything, threesome, anal sex, rough sex, sweet sex…which is alot to pack into a book this size! And because of all the sex breaks the token plot never felt that urgent either.

I just found I didn’t really connect to any of the characters and I have a feeling this will fall in a vault in my mind where all the other generic PNR books are currently stored, never to be remembered again. This book just wasn’t for me, it was a quick read that was written well, but neither the plot or characters held my attention.

  1. Thanks for the review – sometimes with the shorter books the plot almost gets lost with everything else that is going on

  2. Thanks for the great review! I kinda felt that way about book 1, haven’t read any more lately. May have to wait and get them all and then read in one fell swoop.

    1. I confess I haven’t read the first book for this! Luckily it seemed to stand up on its own okay. Maybe it would be better reading them all at once you might get to know the characters better as it looks like some of them overlap.

  3. Thanks for the review. I am sorry that you didn’t like it Suz :* Though on the + side, I get to remove a book from my TBR for once 😀

  4. Thanks for the honest review, I think it is generally really hard to make characters that people can connect with in a novella, never mind trying to add in paranormal aspects.

  5. Thanks for the posting of this review; I just gave book one away to a follower on my blog. I hope she gets enjoyment out of it.
    I hate it when you cannot connect to the characters in the book you are reading. Lately, I’ve been a funk of just okay and good reads–waiting for that EPIC book that just sings to me while reading.

    1. I hope your follower likes it, I have seen plenty of good reviews for this series lol, I must just be the odd one out!!!

      That sucks! But when you find the book that you know you will linger with you and be reread more times than you can count you will know it is worth it 🙂

  6. Thanks for the review Suz, sometimes I find the same when it comes to short story’s, just not enought time to realy get into the story.

  7. Thanks for the review! Sometimes short stories don’t quite hit the spot because of the length constraint even from my fave authors!
