I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple, book, planner 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 and also run my husband’s construction business from home. I’m a self appointed superwoman – she who can do it all!. I love blogging with my girls and 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 as well. 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.
Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.
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?
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California. I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books. I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it. My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.
I coblog and review at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens. I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone. For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
I’m a high school English teacher in my mid-twenties living in Ohio with two rescue beagles. I found a home in blogging when I graduated high school and wanted to find my place in the world– with books! A few years later I started my Youtube channel and have fallen in love with the community and talking all things romance.
I have loved reading and romance for as long as I can remember and would swoon over the innocent crushes the heroines of my books would have on the cute boy next door. Since then, I’ve graduated to much more *ahem* romantic romances and gobble them up in any sub-genre that I can. Once I find a new favorite series, I become obsessed, and my current obsessions include Outlander and The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Highlanders and vampires? Yes, please!
When I’m not reading, I’m either sewing for my Etsy shop Ardent Admirations, cuddling with my pups Darcy and Lily, or teaching World Literature to 10th graders. I’ve made sure to make books a part of my everyday life and I couldn’t be happier!
