I found the story to be a nice one, with a good bad guy and lacking in the typical romantic fashion of let me pretend to hate you and not understand my feelings from the heroine. So this was a four star book. Plus I like it when the woman is either exceptionally smart or not conventionally beautiful. A very good read. I am not interested in reading the second book. Having the bad guy who was a creep in this one, have his own romance just seems unsettling.
