I dont usually review books but I dont know if I was ever more disappointed in a book before. The female "heroine" if that is what you would call her seems to not be able to be without a man, any man, the story tries to show her as strong when all her decisions are based on her having to have a man. If one wont have her she'll take another, when that doesn't work out and the one still wont have her she'll go back home to be with an old boyfriend, what ever happened to fighting for what you want and not taking anything less.
