Have you read this one yet? I read it and really enjoyed it--however, it seems to be getting conflicting reviews.  So, If you've read it--what did you think??

I liked that Denise was wanting to hang on to her humanity and that Spade respected that--well, sort of!  It had a nice conclusion that I can live with and some other interesting plot devices.  I'm really glad that Bones and Cat made an appearance and I'm still on the fence about Ian.  I'm not sure if I like him well enough to see him in his own story.

Tell me what you think!

First, I love Spade. I love how he is a true gentleman. I really liked the story overall even though my expectations were through the roof. However, the book seemed a bit rushed. While Bones and Cat's story spanned (and developed) over several books, Spade and Denise developed over one book. I think you have to have read Cat and Bones story to appreciate Spade and Denise's story but at the same time, you would be slightly disappointed. It is a damned if you do and a damned if you don't. I thought Ian was funny and I can't wait for his story as well.
