The first book in this series was called Against the Wall. Which makes sense. They did it against the wall. This one is called Under the Covers, but I can’t say for sure that our lovebirds actually ever had sex under the covers. They do it on the porch, the dining room table, against his truck in the rain, etc. Not that I’m complaining or anything.
What’s it About?
The small Montana town near the Kooskia reserve seemed like the perfect place for Juliet Montgomery to hide from her not-so-law-abiding family. But when her peace is shattered by a break-in and threatening phone calls, it’s clear someone back in New York knows where she is. It’s time to plan her getaway, and fast—but first, she needs to tie up a few loose ends. Namely, finding out exactly what the town’s sexy cowboy sheriff is hiding in his holster…
Sheriff Quinn Lodge has enough demons of his own to know when someone’s hiding something. Clearly, he needs to do a thorough investigation to uncover what’s beneath Juliet’s uptight, city-girl exterior—preferably one piece of clothing at a time. But when their chemistry goes from fizzy to full-on explosive, things start getting complicated. How can Juliet stay beneath the covers with Quinn, when doing so means blowing her cover?
This book was even steamier than the first one! As Sheriff, Quinn has a commanding presence, strong muscles, and isn’t afraid to give orders, both in and out of the bedroom. He also has a pair of handcuffs that he can use at a moment’s notice if he wanted to. The passion between Juliet and Quinn is literally bursting at the seams. Or maybe that’s just a special weapon that Quinn keeps hidden in his pants. That’s right, I made a penis joke.
Similarities and Differences
I love that we get to see some of the same characters from book one, including the kooky townsfolk who aren’t afraid to “interfere” in bringing our couple together. The concept of living in a small town where you know just about everybody can be such a charming concept at first, but this book shows you the comedic ramifications to that small town feel.
Although we are presented with many of the same characters from the first novel, the story line is very distinct. I really did enjoy this book, but I think I liked the dramatic aspect from the first book better. Call me crazy, but I felt it was more believable to have a possible golf course threaten the peace and serenity of this small town in book 1, rather than Juliet being on the run from her mob family in book 2.
Series: Maverick Montana, book 2. This is the kind of series where technically you don’t have to read them in order, but I think you’ll connect more with the characters if you do.
Should you read it? I’m finding myself mildly addicted to this series. And by “mildly addicted” of course I mean I’m considering reading this on my computer at work.
Smut Level: Quinn is a full on alpha male. He’s nothing but truthful when he tells Juliet that he’ll have her begging for it, and that she’ll like every minute of it. Heaven’s to Betsy!
