This is the first book I've read by this author, and I doubt that I'll read any others. Her writing style seems to consist of a lot of sentence fragments, and after one or two chapters, I found it be irritating. Very irritating. If you like completely unrealistic fantasies (as in two men meeting two women and knowing in the first moment that each had found his lover, his soulmate, his reason for being, etc.) and you don't mind the writing style, then this is the book for you. Maybe. Maybe not.
