I like romance but it needs to be more than just sweet and light, needs some darkness or drama in it, and I wondered if the suspense angle of this one would fit. Well, I've mixed feelings, there were parts I really enjoyed, the sex scenes were well done and sensual and steamy, but then the characters actions descended into what I can only describe as juvenile behaviour, and made assumptions that bordered on racial stereotyping, such as when they see the run down block where the Russian model lives, find out there's others living there and see posh black cars outside and see someone handing over a brown paper bag, they assume they're drug pushers....given Ray is Puerto Rican ( I think, something like that) and hates the assumption that as he's muscley and has has a prison record he must be a thug, and Allie hates the blonde+model=dumb bimbo, then I'd have though they'd be less quick to jump to conclusions about others. The whole court saga too just seemed too far from what would really happen. There were several episodes like that where I felt like rolling my eyes and saying "as if" ...and the big scandal/reveal at the end that affects Allie, Ray and Angus just seemed to get glossed over in the search for a happy ending. I just couldn't see things playing out that way in real life. Fiction is made up stories I know, but needs to follow some type of reality unless its fantasy genre...
So overall a good premise, parts that were well done but let down for me by some silly assumptions and behaviours. Sad but this didn't work as more than just Meh/OK novel. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either, nothing really memorable about it.
If you want an easy to read novel and can get past the blocks that spoiled it for me then its well priced at £.34 for 326 pages.
Stars: 2.5, its not that I didn't like it, but that I didn't really enjoy it so between the two and three marker.

Jennifer Lewis is one of those authors that writes characters that sneak in and captivates your heart. Cover Me is the second book by Jennifer Lewis I have read and again I am pleasantly surprised at how easily I fall in love with her main characters.
Allie, a supermodel, trying to rekindle a career after being decimated by love in a fickle industry is given a second chance. Unfortunately she needs to work on her body too. Years of carefree living has added dreaded pounds. With her apartment on the line and very little money in the bank she is willing to do anything.
Personal trainer, Ray Diaz, has plans to whip Allie into shape. With the money the modeling agency is paying him he can finally get his plans for a gym open and working. But when Ray sees a broken woman and his heart goes out to her things get sidetracked.
Neither of these two expected to find friendship. Their relationship is a surprise and the crazy that follows these two... a ride of pure fun and lust. A look behind the curtain at fashion shows with people learning to swallow pride = eye-opening personal growth.
Fun read with a lot of heart

I was so wanting this to be amazing! This was my first Jennifer Lewis book and the cover is amazing. Love it!
I could not, for the life of me really get into it. It was just an okay read. Allie annoyed the mess out of me and I wanted to just reach in and shake her. Have you ever heard of playing hard to get? Jeez.
I just needed something. Something to wow me or make me have some sort of emotion and I just didn't get it. I actually finished this book, but it took me a while.

This is a light read, a bit slow starting. I didn't feel a connection to the characters immediately, but there is drama in the story when Ray is accused of stealing. So the two of them battle it out to prove his innocence. This was an okay read.
