[Kame's Review]: "Under the Covers"

Under the Covers by Claire Boston 
Publisher: Momentum (August 13, 2015)
Series: The Texan Quartet, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance

What if the one time you didn't want love was when you truly needed it?

Forced to flee her abusive ex, alone with no support, Elle is determined to rebuild her life and protect her five-year-old son. Not one to take the easy road, she opens a bookshop cafĂ©, but opening day almost ends in disaster. In the midst of this chaos, the last thing she needs is a man as charming as George Jones getting in her way. 

George has always been a sucker for a damsel in distress, and Elle ticks all the boxes. But Elle's not interested in being rescued by anyone, especially not him. She knows her taste in men can't be trusted, but fighting George's charisma is harder than she expected. And George, who is not one to ignore an itch, has found there's something about Elle that's got under his skin.

When Elle's ex turns up to cause trouble, George must overcome his boyish flirtatiousness if he's to convince Elle to trust herself and let him into her life. But can Elle put her past behind her before it overwhelms her present?

Perfect for fans of Nora Roberts, Liane Moriarty, Jojo Moyes and Jane Green.

Kame's Review:

Elle wants to provide for her son Toby and she feels starting her own bookstore & coffee shop is the best way. Her soft opening has brought in more customers than she expected. As a single Mom with no family in the area she is not sure how she will make the soft opening a success; then a friend of a friend walks in the door.

I liked Elle as a character. I really appreciated the soft side of her character. There were a lot of great tender "Mom" moments. Her nervousness about a new relationship was understandable. George has been a favorite character in all the books and I am so happy he found love with Elle. In this book we got to know George's family more, and they are so warm. They were great ways to show us more of George's soft side. The interaction between George and Toby was wonderful too; it was great that Toby was an integral character to the plot. It would have been easy to just make the five year old disappear. I did feel a family was being created.

The plot was easy to follow - all steam was behind closed doors. The conflict was understandable and leant itself to a quick resolution. We had a few glances at favorite characters from the other books which I just loved.

I truly love this series and I am sad I only have one book left in the Texas Quartet.
