I am happy to say that I am not disappointed at all! This book kept me up most of the night. The story is so exciting, each page makes me squirm in wonder to read what's next. In the beginning, I was frustrated in Jared's attitude towards the sweet, beautiful & innocent Lauren. Eventually, as I read along, I understood his indifference towards her, yet I still feel sorry for Lauren. I was relieved to see improvements in their relationship as the story progressed ... this is also when the love story twist becomes heart warming. This book doesn't only concentrate on the hero/heroine alone. It contains many unique characters that surrounds the couple.
Each character is described realistically & it makes you understand the hero more. In my opinion, the additional interesting characters make the book more appealing. I can't wait to read more of SB's book. This one is definitely one of my best books to reread many times in the future.« less
